Clairvoyants Able to ‘See’ Energy Healing in Action, Study Finds

Clairvoyants See Energy Healing

An important new scientific study shows that energy can be both channeled to produce healing, and “seen” through extended perception, beyond the five senses.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences, or IONS, has been studying the nature of reality through rigorous scientific exploration for nearly 50 years. In their latest study, IONS scientists set out to validate both the practice of reiki and the phenomenon of clairvoyance or “extended seeing.”                                                                                                                                                                                         

Dr. Helanè Wahbeh is the head of research at IONS, and has been studying energy medicine for decades.

“People who are energy medicine practitioners might call energy this system that runs throughout the body that they experience as energetic, magnetic, tingling, etc. around the body,” Wahbeh said. 

“One type of energy medicine that is commonly used around the world is called Reiki, and Reiki is a technique that originated in Japan. It’s based on the principle that the therapist can actually channel energy into the patient and activate their natural healing process — their innate ability to heal themselves, often releasing obstacles and allowing an optimal flow throughout the body.”

Reiki is one of the best-studied energy medicine modalities, having been shown in clinical studies to be effective in conditions including pain, anxiety, depression, cancer, and others. 

In this IONS experiment, researchers wanted to study the effect of Reiki on people with a variety of physical and mental health conditions to test the principle that the modality uses a universal life force energy and can therefore be applied to anyone for any condition.

“We had six Reiki masters with extensive experience give 30-minute sessions to 40 participants. The participant would come in, they would lay down in this reclining chair, and the Reiki practitioner would say that they were going to start their session, they would place their hands on different parts of their body and direct the Reiki energy for 30 minutes,” Wahbeh said.

The results were profound.

“We saw that, yes, well-being — which is our primary clinical outcome — significantly improved from the session immediately after, and also one week later, and that negative affect also improved,” Wahbeh said. “Participants had multiple, different types of health conditions; memory impairment, depression, anxiety, and acute injury. So these are four very different types of health issues, and yet across all of the participants we saw an improvement in well-being, and this supports the notion that Reiki practitioners suggest, which is that Reiki is universal; it’s a universal life-force energy and can help anybody.”

While these results were significant in and of themselves, researchers incorporated another fascinating component into the experiment. While the reiki sessions were being conducted, six experienced clairvoyant seers observed the sessions.

Various forms of data were then collected to determine whether the information the clairvoyants were receiving through their extended perception was accurate. Researchers then analyzed the data to answer several important questions.

“Do the different perceivers perceive in the same way? What is the corroboration in what they receive during the session? Did the Reiki masters’ answers match up with the perceivers? Did it match up with the participant?” Wahbeh asked.

What researchers found was groundbreaking. To learn about these fascinating findings, check out Part 2 of this Gaia News special investigation.

The Top Five Subtle Body Treatments for Back Pain

Don’t laugh when you see me walking down the street. In my life I have broken my neck in a hard bicycling fall and had rods inserted into my lower spine after plummeting to the ground in a skydiving accident.

I walk a bit funny because they put my leg back together crookedly. It was not the doctor’s fault – he did the best he could. I am not about to get my leg fixed. I’ll wear it crooked, thank you very much. I feel very lucky just to be alive and walking at all. In fact, I am completely functional and pain free, and I’m the one laughing as I consider those two major accidents, countless minor ones and the amount of major metal now in my body.

My life took a very different turn over a decade ago that led me to study and experience my subtle body energy or what some call our chakra system. This has taught me lessons to help address my pain and made obvious what I once would not have believed. In this article I’ll share what I’ve learned through first-hand experience and outline some concrete steps you can take to help tackle your pain.

Our back and other parts of our body have a very specific language or way of communicating with us. Many times the expression can be quite literal, such as painful hands resulting from our holding tight onto something and the fear of letting it go. This happened to me.
