Let Go of the Outcome

Article by Rinku Patel

Why doesn’t my Reiki work?

One of the most common query with new Reiki practitioners is “Why doesn’t my reiki work?” Ah well, Reiki always work but may not work according the way you want it, may not bring your desired outcome, may not manifest at your desired time BUT it always works; for the highest good and at the perfect divine timing.

There are certain things you need to self-check before coming to the conclusion that your Reiki is not working!

Attached to the Outcome

Are you terribly attached to the outcome? When you are terribly attached to the outcome, it may be because of your ego creeping in. Your ego is creating the blockage, your ego wants to show off the healing abilities, your ego wants to manifest fast just to show off. So, one of the most important thing is not to get attached to results. Ditch that ego. Know that you are just a channel and healing/manifestation will take place at the divine timing and for the person’s highest good only.

Another reason for being terribly attached to the outcome is desperation. Desperation shows that you don’t trust the divine timing and outcome that Universe wants for you. Best is, give Reiki with whatever is your intention and let the Reiki do its work. I know it is easier said than done but trust me, it is not impossible to be detached from the outcome.

Do you ask your doctor how healing is going? No, you just take the medicines prescribed without bugging the doctor. Ask your clients not to bug you. If you ask any of my client, the one thing they all may tell same is, I do not let them bug me or make 100s queries about how healing is going. Personally, if the client starts getting hysteric or keeps bugging me, I start feeling pressure and start getting hooked to the result; for all the wrong reasons (just to show that Reiki works). So, in most of my success cases, I followed one thing- just give Reiki to the issue, try to heal the blockage or Reiki the intention, without worrying too much about how, when and what.


You have to believe it works. There is no space for doubts. Also, ask your clients to have faith and trust in this divine energy. Keep in mind, never give false promises which lead to client’s distrust in this beautiful energy. Just give Reiki and let Reiki and angels do the rest of the work.

Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your Destiny.
-Mahatma Gandhi


Are you being grateful to Reiki, Universe, Angels or whoever you invoke? Attitude of Gratitude is a MUST. Be grateful to what you have and what you don’t have. What you don’t have is what you don’t require as of now, so be thankful to it for showing up at the right time.

Be grateful to every small thing; be it your body parts, organs, cells, food, water, finances, family, friends, energies, angels etc. A book by Rhonda Brynes THE MAGIC has terrific exercises to show gratitude. It guides you thoroughly, bringing in new awareness and perspective towards gratitude. I suggest you go through the book and see how it changes your life.

    Hi Rinku, , Nice Article, But i would like to add one thought of mine . You have used word Bugged up, but Frankly if you explain the Client as how your Reiki healing will help hm and how he will see Results , he gets cured faster. Even in case of Doctor, if u ask Doctor as which medicene will have what effect, its helps you to heal faster as your subconscious mind accepts it positively. So i leave it upto you, But using the word bugged up is ….
