No one these days seems to be able to recreate the healing of Takata consistently - sure we have miracles, but not *consistent* miracles :)
Well, the answer may get me in trouble *again*...(this assumption is based on some experience with this newsgroup) but here goes...
Takata's "miracles" aren't reproduced, I think, because few people are doing Reiki as she taught. She taught a System.
Hand positions... that were quickly tossed aside, as not being important. So few do them. They "follow their own intuition..." which is great... Takata would do that too, only *after* taking the time to do the hand positions, head, front and back. This is after many, many years of practice.
Daily treatments... Takata would treat a chronic condition daily, until the person started healing on their own, even if it took a *month...* and then taper off to every other day. Who in today's world will even give Reiki a chance with more than a few treatments? Takata would at times even move in with someone, and change their diet to facilitate healing. Who is able to devote this much time to one person?...
Takata charged for Reiki treatments to encourage the motivation to pay attention and get well, (as was decreed in the times of Asclepian healers of Greece) and it allowed her the freedom to do Reiki.
