Reiki: Good for Plants?

I finished my Level 2 Reiki training last year, and I'm thoroughly enjoying my new practice. Reiki is a Japanese-derived (now international) form of stress reduction, healing, and relaxation. Reiki has been around for nearly a century now. It's primarily used with people and sometimes animals, in homes, clinics, and hospitals. Some practitioners have been using Reiki in their gardens, but there's been no research on plant Reiki that I can find.

I'm thinking of developing a research project, as controlled as possible given that it won't be done in a lab, that looks for a possible correlation between Reiki and plant growth/ health. Tillies seem like a good choice for subjects, as they are small, portable, and don't involve dirt.
Are there any other Reiki practitioners who also garden out there who'd like to try along with me, once I develop a home-based protocol? Could be interesting!
If you're curious and want to get involved, let me know!

  2. I'm so glad you found me! Have you tried Reiki on plants? I've been using it experimentally with some interesting results. I notice on my nasturtiums that the ones with Reiki had 100% germination, the ones without, about 75%. And the Reiki plants are growing evenly and in sync with each other, while in the other pot, some are getting very large, and some stay rather stunted. I'm going to repeat with some other types of plants. It would be wonderful for a larger number of Reiki practitioners to try experimenting with plants- there's really nothing in the literature.
