From my understanding, maybe not everyone agrees with how Reiki is presented? In my case, coming from a strict religious and traditional community I could sadly never ever say publicly that I believe in the healing practices of Reiki. It could harm my reputation because unfortunately many people just don't understand.
Thank you for opening up about your experiences and being vulnerable. This is not easy, and I send you lots of blessings and best wishes.
The good news is that Reiki is becoming more accepted. It's currently used in hundreds of hospitals across the US, including top hospitals like Harvard and Duke, as a way to help patients heal. So even though there are many who do not accept Reiki, even those in the medical and scientific in addition to religious communities, it is accepted by just as many. For any new and different practice, there will be people who disagree with it, don't understand it, and view it as witchcraft, sorcery, or pseudo science. And as it becomes more widely accepted, those views often change.
Trying to talk about Reiki with those who aren't interested can be scary, and we can decide whether we want to have the conversation or if we prefer to talk about it with like-minded people. It's also possible that we find out in our talking that there are more like-minded people than we thought. I encourage you to do what feels right to you in talking about your interests and experiences and to know that your Reiki journey is your own...Reiki is not judging you for not talking about Reiki!
Thanks for sharing so openly about your experience. Sending blessings!!!
