As doctors graduate medical school, they are famously told, “Half of what you learned in medical school is wrong. The problem is we don’t know which half.”
If only the Reiki community were as forthright about how dubious much Reiki information is.
As Reiki practice receives more mainstream attention, conflicting information poses a serious obstacle for new people. Many practitioners complain that good information is hard to come by.
As a community, let’s make it easier for people to get reliable Reiki information.
All it takes is for each of us to exercise some critical thinking about what we read — and say — about Reiki practice. Look at it as if you were watching a tv commercial, because that’s how other people look at what we say.
Make an effort to stay current with historical fact. There aren’t many facts about Reiki founder Mikao Usui and how he developed his practice; there is much we will never know.
A good way to build credibility is to acknowledge when facts are lacking — to simply say, “We don’t know” — rather than presenting undocumented material as if it were factual.
