Does anyone here know about Reiki?

I am a Usui Reiki level II practitioner myself and embarrassingly to say, I am still quite skeptical. I have conducted numerous experiments on myself and friends and still cannot be sure that it is helping. One thing I noticed though, ever since I got attuned at level I, is that my hands have become warmer. The warmth remains too when I place my hands on someone for a long period of time (I understand that if a normal person does that, the hands will stop becoming warm after a while). Heat is one form of energy and reiki may be manifested in this way (other ways may be cold, vibration, etc). The thing is, I did not check the warmth of my hands before I got attuned and since there is no way for me to go back in time to do a comparison, I can't be certain if my hands were already warm to start with.

May I suggest going to your mentor and explaining your doubts? Faith, in my own opinion, acts as a conductor for Reiki... doubt is just the opposite. I wouldn't presume to attempt to say where another person is going wrong, but as a suggestion maybe the doubt you have in the Reiki, and in yourself, is what's causing the "so so" results? I do want to applaud you thought in having the bullocks to admit you have doubt. Most Reiki Practitioners that have doubt try to hide it under a hat.

I have had many Reiki treatments before I got attuned to Reiki. After several Reiki sessions, I started to feel very good and relaxed. My emotional being improved a lot. The depression I was suffering from, decreased a lot. When I got attuend to Reiki, I stopped going to my Reiki Master practitioner for treatments and did my own healings. I have done distant healings for my family and friends. They all had positive feedbacks after the session. You may not feel the Reiki effects immediately, you may feel it the next day or within a week. I have also volunteered to do distant healings for people around the world, who request remote healings on websites. I received a lot of positive feedback from people around the world whom I never physically met. To learn more about Reiki, you have to experience Reiki yourself. Keep an open mind when healing is being sent to you. It's ok to be skeptical but keep an open mind. The only way Reiki will not work is if you reject the healing.

I am a Reiki Master and since last one decade I am doing healing as well I am teaching also. I know and experienced Reiki as a great healing natural system and I perform it daily as well as taking classes to teach interested people. I also do distance healing and teach and attune online student also. I have found that it is really efective for one's own self as well as for others living with Reiki person and the students and patients also! Because Reiki is universal energy and it helps to create a protrctive shield regarding the performer, healer, learner to get through his / her ailment / illness / or reasons regarding that! Well to get real experience one has to learn and perform Reiki! There is no alternative to enjoy this fascinating natural healing energy!

Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize. Unlike other healing therapies based on the premise of a human energy field, Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. Reiki energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body. The laying of hands is used in Reiki therapy also as in spiritual healing. There is a difference though. In spiritual healing, a person with a strong energy field places his or her hands above a particular part of the recipient's body in order to release energy into it. So, here the healer is the one who is sending out the energy. In Reiki, however, the healer places the hands above the recipient; however, it is the recipient that draws the energy as needed. Thus, in this case, the individual being healed takes an active part in the healing process as opposed to having a passive part in spiritual healing. The individual takes responsibility for his or her healing. The recipient identifies the needs and cater to them by drawing energy as needed. Although there are a few positions in which the practitioner is in contact with the patient (such as cradling the head), most Reiki treatments do not involve actual touching. The practitioner holds his or her hands a few inches or farther away from the patient's body and manipulates the energy field from there.

I am a level 1 practitioner and I use Reiki to self treat a lot. I've found I relax better, and it really helps me with a lot of problems (personal medical ones) that I have issues with. I haven't self treated lately and I am definitely noticing a difference.
