Speaking of sports: 'Life force' makes the headlines thanks to Reiki cyclist Roulston

We haven't yet developed a comprehensive sports section here at The Reiki Digest, nor are we likely to do so, at least not until Reiki is commonly used in sports. For now, our sports report focuses on athletes who practice (or receive) Reiki, and in the 2008 Olympics, that means cyclist and Reiki aficionado Hayden Roulston of New Zealand.

Roulston credits Reiki with helping him get back into the sport after a life-threatening heart problem forced him into retirement a couple of years ago, and he recently told a reporter for New Zealand's Sunday Star Times that he'll be bringing his Reiki practitioner with him to Beijing. That story was published on Monday under the headline, "Life force behind lone rider."

"Reiki is the the be-all and end-all for me ... it's pretty amazing stuff," Roulston told reporter Gary Birkett.

And in an interview with another reporter for a story headlined "Golden tinge to Roulston's second coming," Roulston said, "I am feeling in a good space, physically and mentally - I am feeling the best I have ever been." If he mentioned Reiki in that interview, however, it didn't make it into the article.

In coming back from arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, not to mention a couple of brushes with the law, Roulston has already won a more important prize than any Olympic medal. We commend him for talking openly about his experience with Reiki, and if there are any other athletes out there, Olympic or not, who enhance their performances (and their lives) with Reiki, we urge them to follow his example and speak out.
