Barack Obama: Celeb-Reiki

We still haven't come up with any evidence that Barack Obama has a Reiki connection, but we're hoping that someone on his health care transition team will learn about it. The President-elect, who today introduced his health care team, is our Celeb-Reiki this week because of an email we got this morning from Reiki Master and author Pamela Miles. We got it several more times during the day, forwarded from Reiki practitioners all over the United States who wanted to make sure other Reiki aficionadoes saw it, too, in time to take advantage of the opportunity to contribute our input. Here it is:

Dear Janet,

The Obama/Biden health care transition team is taking comments from the public. This is an unprecedented opportunity for Americans to express ourselves directly to our government, without having to go through layers of elected officials and lobbyists.

I urge you to take the time to express your values, needs, and suggestions for health care reform. And while doing so, consider mentioning Reiki specifically. You might, for example, express your preference to have non-invasive complementary therapies such as Reiki reimbursed by insurance and offered in mainstream care.

If you choose to mention Reiki, here are a couple of points to keep in mind as you compose your comment:

Write as a health care consumer rather than as a Reiki practitioner, expressing that you have found Reiki to be useful both in your wellness care and to support you when addressing medical conditions, and that you would like to have full access to Reiki treatment and training for yourself and your family.

Include the link to NCCAM's Reiki Backgrounder to show that Reiki is already recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the government's health agency.

Please let your friends know about this opportunity, whether or not they are Reiki practitioners.

Reiki blessings,

Just in case someone on the Obama team -- or anyone else, for that matter -- wants to know more about Reiki, Pamela has put together a very nice video on the subject as well.

Pamela will be our guest at The Reiki Dojo in New York on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. for Top 3 Secrets of a Medical Reiki Master: A Conversation with Pamela Miles. If you're in the New York City area, we hope you'll be able to join us.
