Frans Stiene is one of my favorite writers on the subject of Reiki. He combines a clear, easy to follow writing style with a deep practice and a willingness to follow his inquiring mind and spirit where they lead him.
Case in point: In 2011, Frans engaged in Reiki sessions with his subject, Deborah Harrigan, while both were connected to Mind Mirror EEG devices. “What I saw in Frans’ brain wave patterns was so startling that I checked his hookups repeatedly to make sure the electrodes were snug and secure enough to transmit a clear signal to my Mind Mirror,” said researcher Judith Pennington. “The hookup was good, but the images were hard to believe: Whether Frans was telling a joke or healing Deborah, he produced the brain wave pattern known as yoga nidra, or “psychic sleep,” wherein only the lowest and slowest delta waves are present to receive and transmit energy from the Field—without any but the slightest appearance (and interfering mental activity) of beta, alpha and theta.”
The videos below show the discussion of the test results, and Frans’ subsequent response. I’ll link to the original articles below – check them out for further details.
