It’s unavoidable, at some point, you will run into someone that does not want Reiki no matter how appealing you make it sound or how excited you are about it. It could be religious reasons, scientific reasons, personal reasons you don’t understand, they just don’t want to try it out. It can be frustrating at times, but it doesn’t have to be. So what do you do when this happens?
What to do when no one wants your Reiki
First, don’t do Reiki under the radar. That’s a huge unethical no no. If they said no respect their decision. Don’t try to convince them that it’s the greatest thing since Netflix. Don’t tell them it will cure whatever ails them. Just let them be.
Second, don’t take it personally. Really, it’s none of your business why they don’t want Reiki. If they sound open to it and continue asking questions, but not comfortable with receiving Reiki right now continue talking to them about it. In this case, it’s best to share your personal experiences rather than try and explain Reiki, but don’t push the subject. If they flat out just don’t sound interested or open, drop it. Don’t feel bad about it and move on with your life. Don’t try to analyze why they are rejecting Reiki at this time. And don’t question their decision. They could be scared, they could be working through their own stuff in a different way, they may not be ready. Just let it go.
Third, do self-Reiki. Do self-Reiki to let go of why you wanted to share Reiki with the individual in the first place. Sure, it may help them, but it is ultimately their decision. You know it helps, so turn your hands to yourself and let go of any anger, worry, annoyance, etc. that you may be holding towards them. Release them in all ways.
Lastly, send the person gratitude for the lessons they gave you. Send the person love, but do not send them Reiki.
