battery will show signs of revwal
as evidence of Reiki energy.
Dr. Gokhale has shot a video
of pendulums that are stationary
pre-Reiki attunement, and start
to oscillate; a response to the
stronger energy field post-
Reiki— when held over a person
who has been attuned. In his
own way he is trying to
document his work and findings.
“1 wanted to see if blood flow
could be controlled during
surgery with Reiki, but I realised
that there w&e many variables
involved, such as the nature of
the problem, or even the doctor
performing the surgery. So it is
difficult to study this.”
Dr. Gokh&e also admits that the
success rate with improving
vision and reducing the spectacle
power of patients including his
own, has not been good.
Dr. Gokhale has taught the
entire staff at the hospital,
including the nurses, the ward-
boys and the receptionist, to give
Reiki. Sawent, the receptionist and
Goga Murli, a senior attendant,
have learnt to heal with Reiki
Doctors wilt be convinced
only if controlled trials are
conducted and reported in
scientific journals, he says. “But
one could get a headstart by
experimenting along with
allopathic methods of treatment.
My experience of treating cases

Anyone can learn
Reiki, which is the
Universal Life Force.
Eveiyhody has an
energy field around
the body and this can
now be seen with the
help of Kirlian
photography and other
methods. Rationalists
will not believe, doctors
do not believe it either
because no scientific
research has been
done
of keratitis, corneal ulcer,
scieritis, iridocyclitis has
strengthened my belief. I have
seen favourable results in
reducing a sebaceous cyst in
three minutes; in two weeks it
disappeared. I have treated warts
with Reiki and have seen one
with a stalk become small, and
others diminish in size.”
The most rewarding has been
a case of diabetes who had a leg
amputated, and had a wound
that wasn’t healing. The patient
herself was in a coma. “The
surgeon said that the leg would
have to be cut completely. I did
not even see the patient, but sent
her Reiki from a distance absent
healing. The patient improved,
diabetes came under control, she
came out of the coma, the
arterial pulsations appeared in
the leg and total amputation was
avoided.”
While the medical community
is naturally sceptical about this
and other forms of alternative
healing methods, patients are
more open to trying them out.
Even if Reiki doesn’t work, it can
do them no harm.
Patients at least are willing to give Reiki a chance
