Reiki for the Priest

As the Catholic Church forbids Reiki I would like to speak up on this issue-not all priests and nuns agree. I personally know nuns who practice Reiki and also I provided 10 sessions for a Catholic Priest early this year. I am writing my third book now, "Miracles From Mars, Reiki Encounters of the 3rd Kind ," in which there is a story of remarkable sessions where Father Johns inoperable brain tumor massively improved. This book is not about ETs but the uncanny Reiki sessions right here on Earth. By the way, Cancer Centers of America recommend Reiki and do it in the hospital, They also recommend patients get Reiki in between cancer treatments. Their agenda is actually holistic-I'm impressed. Any input from you folks-what are your thoughts and any uncanny sessions you want to share?

mind and body

A few years back Dana Reeves hosted a program called, "The New Medicine.' It explored the use of Reiki, acupuncture and other holistic healing modalities. It also showed that just using guided imagery -seeing yourself overcoming the medical ailment in your mind's eye made significant chemical and physical change in the body. Guess why these modalities, especially visualization is not used in American hospitals?? Lame excuse!! It does not fit into the schedule of the hospital day-the day is already full of labs, tests, Dr visits, meals, PT and OT appointments and coordinators don't know where to fit it in. What do you think of that one!

Reiki, The Immune System and Stigmata

I have recently read information about the effects of immunity on stigmata, a most fascinating topic. Stigmata is a condition where a person bleeds at the crucifixion sites where Christ was wounded-hands, feet and forehead. The bleeder often identifies with Christ suffering so much they reenact his tortuous event. A National Geographic team has studied the latest stigmatic(only 350 since St Francis in 1220) After drawing blood for examination in the lab, the team discovered the stigmatic "wounds himself, keeps the wounds from getting infected, and heals himself"-all within his/her internal immune response system-all done in the sub conscious!! The Geographic team discovered our own immunity can wound us and heal us. This has brought much insight into prominent auto immune diseases as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis and fibromyalgia(self destructive disorders). Since Reiki brings immunity into balance-effects thymus, bones and stress hormone response, I see it as a state of the art therapy for disease of this kind. My greatest wish as an RN and Reiki Master is to see Western medicine fully embrace mind-body medicine and "start this new practice now." How about you? What are your thoughts?

Dr. Usui, Reiki founder, made Sacrifices

I recently had a Japanese student who pointed out we Americans do not understand Japanese culture. She was born and raised there and informed me about Japanese secrecy: they are a subdued society where free speech is often curbed. She said Dr. Usui shared Reiki secrets with the general public-a real "no,no." Because he had Reiki Masters from outside his disinterested family, he was shunned by his children and suffered emotional punishment He gave up family tranquillity in exchange for getting Reiki into the world where it was needed.I honor him for all his compassion, sacrifice and efforts.

It's definately ancient

A few months ago I was able to go on a most awesome trip-to the interior of Alaska. An incredible event took place in the tundra, just 200 miles south of the Arctic Circle where our bus trip concluded and came to a halt. There on Inspiration Point I was able to speak with an Athabaskan Inuit about her tribe's views on "healing with Hands"or energy healing. As a golden eagle flew over our heads, she confirmed that they have been healing with hands for thousands of years-- it is revered and valued work. She verified what I had read...healing with hands is ancient and the oldest form of healing known to human kind. Has anyone read or witnessed other cultures using Reiki or related techniques? Please comment.

Reiki is awesome

Reiki is definately an important part of my life-how about you?

Energy From God, What I Believe

All energy therapies are important to me, but I am most passionate about Reiki. What differentiates Reiki from other energy therapies is its strong spiritual component. I approach Reiki from its sacred place and consider it with true reverence. Reiki is not a religion; it has no religious philosophy or dogma. It complements all religions without being connected to one. Personally, I (and many others) view Reiki as “Energy from God.” This spiritual energy, God’s gift to us, is accessible to all human beings at any time; we are its conduits. There is an unending abundance of this universal “chi” in the trees, the sky, the earth, and all living things. As the Reiki practitioner taps into our Source, then places his/her hands on a client, this energy quickly passes through him/her and into the receiver. Many say it is a privilege to be an instrument for Reiki energy, and I agree. Since we do not produce it, but simply channel it, we are not drained from providing treatments.
The energy exchange is perfect between the client and God and does not require our micromanagement for an exact outcome. The body has its own innate intelligence and draws this potent and available energy in as it needs to. The giver also receives healing benefits from providing a treatment. The whole Reiki concept is divine in nature, powerful, and flawless.

Tell me your thought on Reiki and how you feel it helps your life and those around you.

Speaking my truth-disappointment in Western Medicine

As a seasoned RN and Reiki Master I had hopes Western Medicine would soon embrace complimentary medicine, especially Reiki and related. But as time goes on, I find this acceptance is very slow in American Hospitals. I am going to speak my mind and I hope there are folks out there who support me. Dr Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist, has shown documented proof Western Medicine is the #1 killer in America-killing more than any major disease. Death is due to MRSA (hospital based infection), medical errors and side effect of drugs(100,000 a year reported). Just think if we had 100, 000 deaths in plane crashes annually would anyone get on a plane?? Just last week a cousin of mine announced she has breast cancer. She spoke of her treatment-chemo, radiation and surgery as if a wart was being removed from her finger. No problem-it will all be fixed by general medicine shortly. In shock, I asked her if Reiki or related was in her agenda...absolutely not! No need for such nonsence.
Personaally, I would immediately include a healing modality for myself if such a situation occurred. Cancer Centers of America, a holistic minded group, not only provides Reiki in the hospital but asks patients to get Reiki at home. Reiki works to help the whole body-reduces stress, reduces pain, promotes wound healing and can bring blood levels to normal in many documented cases. So whats taking America so long to embrace Reiki as vital to health? What are your thoughts on this topic?

The Day That Changed The Way I Think About Healing...

I remember the exact day my thoughts about conventional healing shifted. I was the charge nurse on a hospital oncology unit. One day, while working on my unit and preparing to infuse another IV, I held a bag of chemotherapy tightly in my right hand. As I reached for the IV tubing with my free hand, I spotted a medical magazine on the counter nearby. On the cover, in bold print, it read, “Energy Healing has been shown to reduce the size of tumors in a recent study.” It immediately awoke my interest. What was this “Energy Healing” about and if, indeed, it reduced tumors, could we practice it in my department?
After I read the journal, I was so drawn to the research and extraordinary stories of reducing the size of tumors with the use of healing hands therapy that I wanted to learn more.
I searched for places to study this type of intervention and a month later enrolled in a class called “Therapeutic Touch” at Michigan State University. That was the beginning of a long journey of discovery into the world of healing mind, body, and spirit. A powerful and new dimension of healing was revealed to me, one I never knew existed.
In class I learned that healing with hands is the oldest method of healing known to mankind. It is approximately 5,000 years old in written history and 12,000 years old in pictorial history. It has been with us since the beginning of time and probably will never leave. It has been practiced universally by every race, religion, color, and creed for centuries. Since it is part of our divine inheritance, it is innate in all of us: A mother pats the back of her crying child, and we place our hands on our head for a headache or on our stomach for stomachache. Simple responses that are so huge.

How has Reiki had an impact on your life? I can't wait to hear what you have to say.

valuable therapy

Our Therapy,Energy Therapy, is the oldest healing method known to human kind. Reiki and related have been on the planet for 5,000 years in written history and 10,000 years in pictorial history. Often debunked by western medicine, one must be aware of something I heard on world news yesterday-50% of all pediatric deaths are due to hospital based infections!! This does not include the thousands of adult deaths due to MRSA contracted in hospitals. Please walk tall Reiki friends of the light-be proud of the healing work you do. I look forward to your comments.

Reiki Modality Soup

There are a vast number of different Reiki modalities available for the practitioner. It can become confusing to decide which to learn, and many of them claim to be "the best" or "the strongest" or "the easiest" Reiki method to learn. There are also people who have learned one type who look down on those who use a different style of Reiki for their healing work. I want to address both here.

First, why so many Reiki methods, and how does one decide? Like food, different Reiki methods appeal to different people. Some people prefer structure and ritual. The people who fall into that category would gravitate toward methods that use symbols and hand positions, because the specific directions in what to do will give them comfort and they can then follow the directions and learn to feel the energy flowing as they do. With the question of "what do I do" out of the way, they are confident and able then to relax and experience the energy. Other people are intimidated by the idea of having to draw or learn complex symbols or a set of hand positions, and instead would like to have a simple way to turn on the energy and put their hands wherever it makes sense to them. The people who fall into this category would gravitate towards a more intuitive form of Reiki, such as Kundalini Reiki, which uses no symbols or structured hand positions. Other people may feel strongly connected to angels, and so a Reiki modality that specifically works with angels would be appealing to them. And so forth.

Is it wrong or right to choose one method over another? That's like asking if it's wrong or right to eat oranges instead of bananas. It's a matter of preference, but both are nutritional and satisfying. Reiki is a method of guiding Life Force Energy using energetic methods. The energy is the same, and the method is the tool. Therefore, the only way to judge which is better is to get a sense of what works best for YOU as the practitioner. Arguing over which method is better than another is like arguing over which food is the "best" food. No one food is the best - one may just be your favorite. It might not be mine. Having a number of different Reiki methods to use can give you a way to choose which you prefer, or perhaps you already know yourself well enough to get a sense of they way you would like to work with energy. In either case, choosing a Reiki method is a personal choice and not "wrong" or "right" in a moral sense, but just fitting or not as fitting to your personal way of sensing and comfortably working with energy. I invite you to try different Reiki modalities and see which feels best to you. But don't do it all at once - learn one well. Take the time to work with it daily. Try all of the ways this method teaches you to use the energy on yourself and others. Get very familiar with it. Then learn another style and experience the difference. You can compare once you have experience working with one over another. You can combine Reiki methods during a healing session if you feel guided to do so. Reiki is not one way of channeling healing. It is very personal and intuitive, and the most important thing to know, regardless of what Reiki method you use, is that INTENTION is the driver for the energy. If you intend that a symbol directs the energy in a certain way, it will do that. If you intend that your words will direct the energy in a certain way, it will follow your words as directions. If you intend that your hands are directing energy to a person's head to relieve the pain of a headache, the energy will respond to that intention.

All who mindfully work with Reiki energy to help others and themselves are making the world better. Knowing this and honoring all who live this way, is truly living in a way that honors the practice.

Blessings on your Reiki journey! Thank you for sharing the light in the unique and wonderful way you do.

Compassion and Intention

I find it so interesting that compassion and intention alone can stimulate change in the clients body. World famous Canadian healer, Bernard Grad, repaired rye grass seeds and healed mice with no formal treatment-- just compassion and intention. I have sent the 2 both distance and on the body. Does anyone else use the same? What do you see happening? I appreciate your comments. Blessings to all.

Spiritual Connections

"I would like to hear about any spiritual experiences one has had either as a Reiki client or as the Reiki practitioner. It could have been an Angelic message, greater connection to source or divine guidance. I had an intense experience I wrote about in my book, Healing With Hands, Miracles, Inspiration and Science," in the story, Apparition of the Blessed Mother. To this day, some years after it happened, it is still profound.

Mystery Schools and Reiki

Welcome to each of you who have taken classes in Reiki, Esoteric, Quantum Touch, Hopi, Cranial, Polarity, etc and are privy to ancient and sacred information not shared with the disinterested public.

The Use of Symbols in Healing

In Reiki, we use symbols to empower and expand our treatment. They were brought to us by Dr. Usui, the founder of Reiki. In his search for a complete healing system Reiki symbols were revealed to him on Mt. Koriyama at the end of his 21st day of prayer and meditation. The Reiki symbols sharpen our focus and intention and facilitate such things as increasing, calming, or sending energy. They also have a vibration which resonates with physical, emotional or spiritual bodies.

Some symbols are branded "occult" conjuring up images of "devil worship", but this couldn't be farther from the truth. Occult actually means "hidden or obscure. "In times of religious oppression, knowledge that was counterdoctrine to the ruling church had to be kept hidden or secret. Due to the churches desire for singular power, occult was redefined as "evil" burning or hanging those who practiced it. Consequently, "mystery schools" were driven underground where healing information could be passed from teacher to student, protecting sacred data so beneficial and self empowering for every day people.
