Can Reiki Affect Court Hearings?

With a hat tip to the ever-amazing Blue Wode, here is an astonishing claim that the power of Reiki can affect the outcome of court hearings.

"A very mainstream event such as a court hearing or trial can benefit greatly from the subtle influence of Reiki energy.

"Can Reiki influence the result of the proceedings? Absolutely. The intent of all Reiki sessions would be for the “highest and best” outcome...

"What if one wants energy directed to the whole courtroom, from the judge, to the clerks, to the attending officers? In fact, what if you want Reiki directed to every soul in that courtroom?

...

"A way to adhere to the ethics of Reiki while still positively affecting the events of the proceeding would be to send Reiki energy to “the situation”. In doing so the whole room would be filled with Reiki energy.

...

"There have been many court outcomes that have been discreetly influenced by the power of Reiki. It is reassuring to know that in those instances, the highest and best did prevail for all those involved."

Wonderful stuff.

I wonder if there are any cases or hearings in particular where this effect can be seen to have worked...

People have done scientific experiments on whether third parties praying can affect the outcome of an event. That probably amounts to much the same thing as trying to influence it through reiki, though no doubt practitioners would put up their hands in horror at such a suggestion: wrong spell, each type of practitioner would say of the other, or words to that effect.

There's a survey of some papers here on scientific tests of prayer power.

In the extreme possibility that Reiki (or any other way of remotely influencing people in court) actually did work, wouldn't that potentially be perverting the course of justice? Surely by even trying they are at the very least attempting the crime?

I Agree with Al,

Surely this is an admission of intent? Whether or not Magic Hands can affect the outcome, surely the admission that there is an intent to do so is a crime?

Burn the witch! :p

The BCA needs to get all the altie quacks together on the pavement outside the Royal Courts of Justice to all pray, wave crystals, remove subluxations, drink highly diluted substances, zap cancers with magic machines and wave their arms around while thinking nice thoughts. It'll do nothing, but it'd certainly be entertaining for the media and the lawyers while they are waiting for the judgment from the appellate court in the Singh v. BCA

Re.Key can definitely have an effect on the outcome of a Court case, but only if the case relates to the right of a trustee in bankruptcy to be entered on the register of members of a company in relation to shares owned by the bankrupt - see In Re W. Key & Son, Limited [1902] 1 Ch. 467.

I tried it at home, and it did not work. I still had to help with the washing up.
