Reiki Helps Win Olympic Silver Medal

Hayden Roulston, a New Zealand cyclist won a silver medal in the Olympic men’s Track Cycling 4000m individual pursuit event. Hayden had a serious heart condition in 2006 which he completely recovered from and in a pre-win interview he states that it was Reiki that helped him recover.

In response to the interviewer's question How did you fix something the medical fraternity said was life threatening? Roulston's response was:Through Reiki actually. It's a Japanese healing technique. It's a hands-on treatment which transfers energy from one person to another. There was once upon a time I use to focus on just the mental and the physical, now it's the emotional and the spiritual, four very different components . . .

Reiki for Exercise and Sports
by William Lee Rand

Reiki is a versatile healing method that has a wide range of applications. It’s able to promote healing and rejuvenation in every area of our lives. It’s also able to enhance creativity, improve motivation and increase productivity. Its use in exercise and sports activities is an area that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. Reiki can definitely improve the results you get from your exercise program and can enhance sports performance.

There are several ways it can do this. First of all, Reiki can help your muscles heal faster and more deeply after intense workouts thus helping them grow back stronger and resist injury.

According to a report from Lenox Hill hospital in New York, in order to increase the strength of your muscles, it’s necessary to work out at an intensity that causes muscles to have a burning sensation and become sore, then to rest or work out at a lower intensity during the following workouts which allows the muscles to heal. The soreness indicates that muscle cell damage has taken place, but when this happens, the damaged muscle cells release tissue growth factors which cause the muscle cells to grow back larger and increase in number as long as enough rest takes place to allow the muscles to heal. This repeated cycle of stressing the muscles through intense workouts followed by rest causes muscles to continue to grow stronger. Exercising at lower intensity following an intense workout rather than complete rest will cause muscles to heal in a way that creates greater resistance to injury.

It’s in the resting period that Reiki can really help muscles grow stronger. After an intense workout, lay down and rest right away and either get a Reiki session or give one to yourself, treating the muscle groups involved. This will provide a higher level of healing for the muscles which will supercharge the regeneration process causing the muscle cells to grow back stronger and increasing their number more so than without Reiki.

Another way Reiki can help your exercise and sports activities is in the area of injuries. These can include sprains, strained muscles, bruises, broken bones and even worse. When this happens, rest and sometimes even medical attention is necessary in order to heal. Here’s where Reiki really shines! Reiki will help all injuries heal faster. It will also reduce pain and create a more complete recovery. Regular Reiki treatments are recommended; daily sessions if possible. This can be accomplished using a combination of self sessions and session received from others. The faster you heal, the sooner you’re back in action and Reiki will speed up the process!

While playing volley ball I hit the ball too hard at a bad angle and sprained my wrist. It hurt and I was thinking I should leave the court, but began giving myself Reiki. I felt an immediate release in the wrist and it began to feel better. The ball came my way and I hit it with my good hand, passing it to another player and continued to give myself Reiki. It kept feeling better until it felt strong enough to use both hands. I continued to play and ended the game with no pain or weakness in my wrist at all. My team mates were amazed!

Considering the importance exercise has for maintaining our health and well-being Reiki can add a great deal to our quality of life when combined with exercise. The value is even greater for those involved in sports where the thrill of competition and team work provides additional benefits. Those involved in professional sports will find the use of Reiki even more valuable as improved performance improves job security as well as income. Let us be thankful for the amazing benefits the use of Reiki can bring into our lives.

Reiki and Fertility
by Mari Hall

My office was in the regional hospital in Kolin, Czechoslovakia. It was a supportive place to work because I could also consult the doctors there, and quite often we worked together in regards to clients of mine and/or patients of theirs. The head of gynecology sent a young woman to me for a consultation to see if Reiki could assist her in conceiving a child. Both she and her husband had been checked in the fertility clinic at the hospital and it was determined that they both had fertility problems. I told them to come in for an evaluation and initial treatment.

The couple, Jana and Honza, had been married for eleven years and had been unsuccessful in conceiving a child. They asked me to use Reiki with them to see if this might help. I had been sent the doctors’ records from the hospital, and also took a standard case history from both of them. I asked them about eating habits and stress factors and how they felt emotionally about this problem.

Jana was 33 years old and was a technician at a refrigeration company. She worked from 7 am to 4 pm and then cared for her grandmother until her mother got home from her job. She was often upset and felt as if she was a failure because she couldn’t conceive a child. She had been depressed from time to time, and had experienced weight loss and insomnia. The doctors told her she had only one functional ovary. She felt quite stressed, both in her personal life and at work. Her eating habits indicated she had a strong desire for sweets. She craved chocolate and also drank coffee with three spoons of sugar.

Honza was 37 years old and was a translator for a petrochemical company. He worked from 7:30 am to 5 pm. He was quite busy but did not feel stressed at work. However, at home he did feel stressed because Jana was depressed, and there was so much tension in the home he often worked into the night at his computer doing additional work. He was very fond of salty foods. The doctors’ tests indicated he had a low sperm count.

I decided to treat the couple individually with Reiki so that each had their own time. I also told them I might want to adjust their diet a bit as we progressed with the treatments. We had noticed in treating fertility problems that many of the couples had a pH problem in that each had a different pH, which we felt made conception harder. I gave Jana some meditations to use to help her relax. I set up an appointment with the head of the fertility clinic to speak with Jana about their diagnosis, and to especially emphasize that the problem concerned them both. She had taken it as her problem alone, and I felt it was important for her to realize it was not just her problem. The talk did help her to relax more.

I started treating her every other day for an hour each time. I treated her whole body and spent extra time over the ovaries. She had given me a record of her menstrual cycle, which was sporadic. I wanted to see when she started to ovulate. After the first month of treatments she was considerably changed. She had gained weight and had been sleeping through the night for two weeks. Her emotions were healthier; she was eating less chocolate and was more optimistic about life. She said that Honza and she had been doing things in the evenings and had been talking more. She wanted to continue the treatments at the same rate as before.

I treated Honza twice a week for an hour a day, with extra time spent over the reproductive area. He was quite open to discussing personal things, and during our time together he spoke about his fears about his marriage. He noticed that he was more attentive to Jana over the weeks that followed and assumed it was because she was more relaxed and laughed more. In hindsight he also saw that he had spent less time on the computer and more time with Jana, and that he had experienced a series of small shifts in his behavior.

During the second month I asked the couple if they would be willing to take level one Reiki in order to treat each other. In addition to the benefits of Reiki, I felt it would be a natural way to for them to spend more time having caring thoughts and feelings for each other. I suggested also that I would remain a consultant and see them monthly. They accepted this plan and started using Reiki every day on each other. At the end of the month we came together to see how the couple was doing. Both noticed a big difference in their energy levels and that they were not so intense about having a baby. The pressure seemed off and they were enjoying being with each other. Jana’s mother arranged help with the grandmother so that Jana was free to be at home with Honza more. They had come to a beautiful relaxed state with each other and seemed to be more present. They had another checkup at the fertility clinic, and Honza’s sperm count was up and Jana’s inactive ovary showed signs of activity. The doctors determined she was ovulating from that ovary that month. She had noticed she had slight pain in that side and that her menstrual cycle was more normal. I asked them if they would be willing to continue another month with a change in their diet. We wanted to see if a more neutral diet would help them change their extreme tastes and adjust their pH to more compatible levels. Jana stopped eating sugar and Honza stopped eating chips and pickles. I gave them some homework to do with each other during the next month, involving touch and communication.

We were now well into the fourth month of treatment when they came in my office and announced that they were expecting a child. It had been confirmed that morning. We talked about a course of action to support the pregnancy with Reiki. Honza said he wanted to give Reiki to Jana and the baby as part of a welcoming ritual to the baby. Every night he would give Jana a full-body treatment and as he did Reiki over the womb area he would talk to the baby. The doctors at the fertility clinic were also following Jana’s progress. She gave herself Reiki every morning and Honza gave her Reiki every night. She had little morning sickness or problems. She seemed to thrive on Reiki and on being pregnant. I continued to see her every month. I assured them I would be with them when it was time to have the baby. The doctors had agreed to me giving her Reiki in the labor and delivery room, as they were impressed with the progression of the pregnancy and how the baby was developing.

At two o’clock one morning I was awaken by a telephone call and happily went to meet the couple at the hospital. The baby was on the way. Jana was in labor, and the doctor wanted her to be monitored there at the hospital. Honza and I began to give her Reiki with each contraction. I worked under her belly and Honza worked on her lower back. They had taken Lamaze classes at the hospital and chose to have a natural childbirth. We were in the new special birthing wing. There was meditation music playing and all the nurses and most of the doctors knew Reiki. The purpose was to aid her in the delivery but also to use this as part of the research on the effects of Reiki in the delivery process. What impressed me so much was the feeling of love and support that was constant in the room. Reiki was everywhere. At 5:45 am Honza was holding his new daughter and giving her Reiki while showing her to Jana. The delivery was without complication. Mother, baby and father were all fine. The doctors and the nurses noticed appreciable differences in Jana as compared with other women who have birth without Reiki. Jana was more relaxed, the delivery went more smoothly, and the baby was more alert and pink.

Jana and her daughter stayed in the hospital for three days. The baby slept in a cot next to her mother’s bed. Jana gave her daughter Reiki every morning and Honza gave her Reiki every night. Honza said the baby seemed to know what Reiki was. We all agreed it was wonderful that she had been treated from her first moments with Reiki.

They named the baby Svetlana, which translates as “celebration of light,” a way to have constant celebration of birth and life. The story does not stop there; there is a continuation to share.

In 1997 in Liberec the first children’s Reiki seminar was taught. Jan and Honza were on the team to help with all the children who were there. Svetlana was also there to take Reiki with her little brother. She was six years old and he was five. At the end of the seminar I asked the children to whom they were going to give Reiki first. Svetlana said “To my Daddy!” It was so wonderful to see these two miracles giving Reiki to their parents. Truly I was a witness to a family born with the aid of Reiki and united in Reiki and love.

Reiki In The Trenches
by Diana Green

A couple of years ago, a realization came to me. It occurred to me that the only reason I was put on this earth is so that I may be of service. Ever since my Reiki I attunement, I had had a strong urge to express this service through Reiki, but thus far had only had limited practice with family and friends. When I received Reiki II and my feet settled back on to the ground, my first thought was, “What now?”

Just a short walk from my home, there is a wonderful healing center, owned and operated by a lovely woman chiropractor. I made an appointment to see her (I needed an adjustment anyway), and, as I walked up her pathway, she came out of her office, looked straight at me and, not even knowing I had an appointment, said, “There you are! I was just thinking about you this morning and wondering what you’ve been doing.” This really took me aback as I’d only met this woman once, and it had been six months previously. Apparently Reiki was already opening doors for me!

After my adjustment, I explained to her that I was a new Reiki II practitioner but that I didn’t know what to do next and was wondering if she could give me any ideas about how I should proceed. Generously, she said, “Well, this coming Sunday our community is holding its first Farmers’ Market, and we’re having a booth. Why don’t you come along and participate?” So I did.

I went to the healing center’s booth at the Farmers’ Market every Sunday that summer, giving free ten-minute Reiki demonstrations, first using a chair and eventually a table. I was nervous at first because I still felt a little unsure that I would actually be able to allow the energy to flow under the circumstances. There were people talking and shouting, children shrieking, babies crying, rock music blasting from the DJ’s booth two spaces down, dogs barking, and the fairly frequent screaming of sirens as the fire engines and paramedics left their station on the next corner. But none of it mattered.

Reiki flowed, and I got just about the same response from everybody: “Wow…that was so relaxing.” As the summer passed, I realized that I wanted to be a full time Reiki practitioner. I didn’t get too many clients from the Farmers’ Market, but I got something even more valuable—confidence in my ability to be of service with Reiki and the absolute knowledge that Reiki is available anywhere, anytime, in the street, in the trenches.

That summer I also met the health workers from the healing center and through them began to find my way into their community. One of them recommended that I attend the monthly Sacred Energy Circle at a well-known church in the area where all types of healers (Reiki, Pranic, Shamanistic, etc.) volunteer their services.

I jumped on this opportunity, thinking, “Ah, this will be so peaceful and tranquil, doing Reiki in a church building.” Wrong. Little did I know when I signed up that the church also offered line dancing classes on the same night in an adjoining room and that the soundproofing was non-existent. So, off I went, back into the trenches, only this time with accompanying extra-loud country music, plus counting of the steps. Once again, the circumstances were of no consequence. Reiki flowed and clients relaxed deeply.

Once I began having clients at my home, I was able to create a more peaceful atmosphere—nice music, low light, etc., but the truth is that the outside world continues to do what it will and that same fire station is still on the corner. What arose for me from these experiences is that time, location and surroundings really have no effect on Reiki. Obviously, we would all like to practice and receive Reiki in a semi-vacuum without the invasiveness of the outside world but, for most of us, that just isn’t a reasonable expectation.

Realizing that Reiki is present anywhere, anytime, regardless of circumstances, reminded me of a philosophy that can be found in all major religions. The Perennial Philosophy basically states that God is infinite and eternal, that is to say, everywhere—here, now, and in all times past, and all times yet to come. I had, of course, been taught that Reiki comes from God or the Universe (or whatever term one is comfortable with), but now I had living proof from my own direct experience. What a revelation!

All Reiki practitioners have their own personal take on what Reiki means to them. For some it is a healing practice with spiritual undertones and overtones, for others it is a meditative/spiritual practice from which healing comes. At first I thought I fell into the former category, but now I realize that I am truly in the latter. Why? Because the Divine Light of Reiki has, with a little attention on my part, shown me my path, clearly and unquestionably.

I have now had more attunements and am grateful to be able to call myself a teacher. I am deeply aware that this is my calling, and despite my stumbling steps and forays into distraction, the Light of Reiki always brings me back to the path it (God, the
Universe) has chosen for me. Amid all the noise and hubbub of the world at large, I find myself at peace with the knowledge that I, too, am part of that infinite and eternal Light, and I am grateful to be guided gently into my future, being of service to others through Reiki.

Reiki Stories

Operation Cancelled after Reiki!
Last year I had a desperate telephone call from a concerned husband. His wife had been suffering from severe neuralgia pains in her face for six years. She suffered this pain 24 hours a day and in the course of the six years she had several operations on her face to freeze the nerves to no avail. The pain continued and even the strongest painkillers could not subdue the pain. Her husband brought her to my Reiki clinic on a Friday morning. She was due to have a "brain operation" at Groote Schuur Hospital on the Monday morning.

Due to the severity of the pain, I did not have any hope of stopping the pain, my only purpose was to just help her relax and not to fear this pending operation. I worked through her chakras and spent a long time with her. When I completed the Reiki treatment, I had a "flash" reminder of the teachings of my Reiki Master regarding the extension of the fingers. I then returned my attention to her face on the side where she had this constant pain. I "extended" my fingers to the inside of her face, bone, nerves and flesh and actually felt a small ridge and worked on that ridge for approximately 2 minutes until the ridge vanished. I felt a tremendous amount of "energy" pouring into her face. I asked her how the pain was. Her reply: "The pain is gone", and she burst into tears. I called her husband to the therapy room where the three of us prayed together to say thank you. The operation was cancelled and the pain never returned again. She is still in contact with me. She only had the one Reiki treatment. To me this was truly a miracle! I've experienced many healings but this one beats them all. Reiki master, Sonia Carlil

Reiki Heals Ear Infection
A few years ago I had this lady come to me for a Reiki treatment. Not knowing of her condition I began my session, but while working around her ears noticed something terribly wrong around her left ear. After completion of the session I inquired if she had something wrong in that specific area. She told me she was scheduled for surgery the 
following morning because of an inner ear infection that doctors had been unable to correct after a number of months of treatments. She went back to the hospital that night and the next morning she called saying the surgery had been cancelled because sometime during the night while sleeping her ear had broken open, and whatever was inside had run out onto her pillow. The doctors had no explanation, but she said she knew it was because of the Reiki treatment. She went on to say that after the treatment something started moving inside her ear, and she had a peaceful feeling that she had never experienced before.   John Prior

Getting Reiki Into A Hospital
As a new Reiki Master, I was eager to share Reiki with everyone. Without knowing there were actually limitations, I charged forward and approached our hospital oncology center with the idea of establishing a Reiki evening for their patients. After a one-hour presentation, they whole-heartedly accepted! After I received the news and shared it with other hospital personnel, I was told it should have been impossible to establish a Reiki share due to hospital policy. Well, Reiki came through anyway!!! We are in our sixth month of once-a-month free Reiki for cancer patients, and our patient load has tripled, to the point of having to move to a larger space within our medical 
center. Our volunteers have been dedicated, and all of them admit that they possibly gain more peace and comfort than the patients who receive Reiki. What a gift Reiki has been in my life and the lives of those who share Reiki with others.
