A Final Note for Sceptics:
Those who are reluctant to see a cause-effect relationship between sessions of any of the above techniques, and the changes that are then experienced, usually employ three very typical arguments:
a) It must be a coincidence
b) It would be necessary to take into account other variables that may have occurred and may explain the improvement or healing of the person.
c) It could be suggestion or the placebo effect.
As for the first, a), I can say that the success rate has not been 100% (there are two people who seem to have “resisted” Reiki), but it is close. That is to say, there are so many times when, when applying any of these three techniques, I observe results, that my personal opinion is that the healing has been a product of the therapy. Too much success to be pure chance.
The sceptic then turns to the second argument: the possible variables that have not been taken into account. On this point, I have to say that, to date, no one has presented me with a single “variable” that could justify the healing of the people I mentioned above. In other words, “there will be variables”, but no one has suggested any to me. And even less, no one has explained to me so far, how science explains, that this possible “variable” participates or is the cause of the healing, when it occurs.
That is, if the “variable” that could be the actual cause of healing is, say, a particular value of ambient humidity or atmospheric pressure, which happens to be healing, they should be able to explain to me, scientifically, how it helps a person to heal. So it is that fact, and not the aforementioned techniques, that is the source of the healing.
So, all that remains is to appeal to suggestion as a way of justifying that it was not the techniques, but the placebo effect of “auto-suggested” people. People who, supposedly, because they have blind faith in these things, somehow bring about their own healing after the session, but who have no effect whatsoever.
I can say two things about this:
Some people have received treatment from me without warning or consent. Others have consented to it, but we have not specified when they would receive it:
◦ Ellie’s case is one of those. I applied Ho’oponopono on her without notice. The reason? As I have explained before, I was seeking my own healing. But she felt, right at that moment, as she comments in the screenshot, a very positive energy and how it improved, inexplicably for her, her self-esteem: she stopped being a “mirror” of my problem and that translated into healing for her as well.
In the case of Nermin’s brother-in-law, while he was in coma, he could not know that he would receive a distant Reiki session. He could not even be asked for his opinion about it. And, a day and a half after the session, after 2 months in coma, he “coincidentally” woke up.
So, if the placebo is so powerful, I don’t understand why it has not yet been researched, learned, and applied today to patients with all kinds of ailments. It does not seem logical to me that health professionals who think that any healing by unofficial methods is a matter of placebo or suggestion, have not seriously set about investigating this “gold mine” of healing that they suppose placebo to be. And then apply it, themselves, in a methodical and scientific manner.
