The Reiki Centre Survey series: You reap what you sow

By Elaine Grundy

Further Implications from the Reiki Centre Survey

In this ongoing series of reflections from the Reiki Centre Survey, a survey of 546 Reiki practitioners carried out in 2010, we take a look at how the number of hours of self-Reiki affects the benefits you receive.

Personally, I have always emphasized the importance of daily self-Reiki. I view Reiki as fuel, and as we utilize this energy it never diminishes in importance. Unlike taking medication which is often a fixed dosage over a fixed period of time – Reiki is more like nutrition, a daily dosage keeps us balanced and vital.

The Reiki Centre Survey confirms this message; when results are plotted against the number of hours respondents practice Reiki, there is a clear correlation between the results and the number of hours practiced. If we use the rating for ‘Overall Wellness’ as an example, a total of 87% of respondents reported that they felt their overall wellness had improved. For those who practiced less than 1 hour a week the reported improvement is much lower, at 68%, this rises to an astounding 98% for those practicing for over 7 hours a week.

The following chart illustrates this even further when we look at respondents who report a significant improvement. This rises from a minor 19% for those practicing self-Reiki for less than 1 hour a week, to 62% of respondents practicing self-Reiki for over 7 hours a week.

This result is reflected in many of the other measurements in both physical and emotional aspects and suggests that the amount of self-Reiki we do correlates strongly to the amount of significant benefit we notice.

*total percentage refers to those respondents who answered both improved/better now and improved significantly/ significantly better now

The findings reiterate the importance of a daily regiment of self-Reiki to keep our energy full and balanced. It also provides ample inspiration that we will be amply rewarded for our efforts!

Music we love to practice Reiki by: A review of "Music for Reiki Attunements" by Llewellyn

By Beth Lowell, Managing Editor 

I’ve been listening to "Music for Reiki Attunement, Volume 1", by Llewellyn all week, so I’m pleased to finally get a chance to write this review. We featured another great CD by this composer/performer here last year, "Reiki Gold", (which by the way is up for nomination for best Reiki CD at's 2011 Readers Choice Awards, and has been featured on British Airways flights.) If you liked "Reiki Gold", you’ll appreciate this collection which features some familiar tracks.

Reiki Master Philip Permutt compiled this collection from three of Llewellyn’s albums, "Reiki Gold", "Crystal Angels", and "Crystal Child" with the intention of helping listeners create a sacred space, perfect for attunements, personal practice, treatments or meditation. Rich and layered, Llewellyn's melodies strike the perfect balance between providing a both a brilliant listening experience and a lush background in which to lose one's self.  

Named a genius, and “the Mozart equivalent of new age music”, Llewellyn does not fail to please once again as he takes listeners through eight selections and over an hour of mesmerizing and inspirational music that will leave his audience both relaxed and refreshed.

Reiki perspectives: Talking Reiki and science...3 things to avoid

By Pamela Miles

Whether we like to admit it or not, we're all impressed by scientific evidence. It's understandable when Reiki practitioners try to make Reiki practice seem more respectable by referring to science and citing studies. Understandable, but not always wise.

Unless you really know what you're talking about, and who your audience is, you could be setting yourself up for a fall, and taking Reiki practice with you. The public may be pulled in by pop science, but scientists and physicians know better. Physicians are also not impressed by frontier science, studies that are breaking ground and not yet recognized by the scientific establishment. Physicians care about medical science; after all, they take care of people. When speaking about Reiki and science, here are three things to avoid if you want to avoid making a scientific fool of yourself. Read on...

Personal practice Monday: Do not worry

By Deborah Flanagan

Editor's note: This article is excerpted from Deborah Flanagan's January 19, 2011 newsletter.

Another one of Master Usui’s Reiki precepts is "Do not worry." Easier said than done, right?

But what is worry? If you think about it, worry doesn't DO anything--if you fix what's bothering you then you stop worrying when you start fixing it, and if you can't fix it, then why worry?

Often when you worry your worst case scenario is totally off and your instincts are wrong, and if your worst nightmare happens it usually doesn’t feel as bad as when you worried about it--let's call it the "wild imagination factor."

Worry doesn’t prepare you for anything--watching TV and reading the news, then feeling bombarded by fear--it’s a distraction. It doesn't allow you to be in touch with your own freedom, power, and true self.

Well, Maybe Worry A Little

Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, author of Coyote Medicine and a physician who combines Native American healing with traditional medicine, suggests keeping a Worry Diary. Make a list of worries for a few minutes each day and ask yourself if what you're worried about will matter in 10 days, 10 years, or 100 years from now. And then be done with it for the day.

His Cherokee grandmother couldn't write, so instead of making a list of worries, she set aside a certain time each day to think of everything that worried her, and when she couldn't think of any more worries, she said a prayer, and worrying was done for the day.

Our minds can be free of worry and fear—just for today.

An Anxious Exercise

If you’re feeling anxious pass a small object (a ball, your keys, etc.) from one hand to another side-to-side, crossing the mid-line of your body. (This involves both sides of your brain, disrupting anxiety which is based only on one side.) It's so simple and yet, it REALLY works.

Deborah Flanagan has a private Reiki practice in New York City. She also works with patients at the Initiative for Women with Disabilities, part of NYU Langone Medical Center.

Music we love to practice Reiki by: Michael Stribling

Heard an amazing blend of ambient sound and music the other day on the Soundscapes cable channel, and I hurried to jot down the artist's name and find out more. Turns out that Michael Stribling makes his music available free online. We're listening and learning more, but so far we especially love Eagle Above, River Below from his 2010 album Paradise Lost.

Stribling's life took him from music to work as a therapist and back to music again. No wonder his work is so perfect for therapies of all types.

If your client happens to be a music trivia buff, you might score points by revealing that Stribling was once a drummer for Johnny Mathis. But not during the session, of course.

If you like what you hear free online, you can click below to buy individual tracks or entire CDs from iTunes and Amazon.

Reiki without symbols

By Rosanna Rogacion

For the past six years, I have been a Reiki Therapist here in my native Philippines, a country situated very close to Japan, the home of Mikao Usui.

The Philippines is in the Far East, an archipelago consisting of 7,100 islands (yes, that’s a lot of islands!). It is my homeland and it is also the home of thousands of hands- on- healers –- so many that at one point the country was well known for its so-called psychic healers. There are currently fewer than 20 Reiki practitioners in our country and among these, I am one of the very few involved in the lesser known form of Reiki – one of the many branches of Reiki that are called Traditional Reiki Ryoho.

This form of Reiki that I practice does not incorporate symbols. There are no specific hand positions, and emphasis is given to spiritual practice. There are also no attunements. When I teach Reiki , I give Reiju, which is a simple, no fuss affair that only takes a few minutes yet effectively reconnects the person to Reiki.

Daily Practice

In my experience, I have seen that dedication to daily spiritual practice is at the core of every traditional Reiki therapist’s life. One of the best things about my work as a Reiki therapist is that there is no effort at all to channel energy during healing sessions and this is one of the benefits of having a daily spiritual routine. In some ways, daily spiritual practice takes the place of the Reiki symbols used in other forms of Reiki. Through the years I have seen that the degree and depth of spiritual practice has a direct influence on the depth of a therapist's professional practice.

I have had the pleasure of introducing Reiki to many people who have come for classes and it is interesting to note that no matter how strong and effective Reiki is after Reiju, it soon becomes history if the person does not indulge in daily spiritual practice.

During the first few years of teaching Reiki, I used to include Hatsurei–ho in my classes. This is a form of spiritual practice that has its roots in Japan. Hatsurei-ho incorporates body movements, deep breathing and visualization. Some people believe that Usui practiced this form of meditation.

However, now I advise students to focus on doing spiritual practices that are more in line with their religious traditions. And it works. I am a practicing Catholic and I know that the more I pray, meditate and focus on my spiritual growth, the stronger the Reiki flows to and through me. Reiki does not discriminate!

We often don’t hear what our bodies are telling us because our minds are filled with constant chatter. Daily spiritual practice stills the mind and provides the space where we can hear what is coming from within and then later on, we learn how to listen more effectively to what is outside of us.

Hand Postitions

There are only 5 basic hand positions that are used in this form of Reiki and these focus on the head. During most of my sessions I use some of them, sometimes I use all five but not in any specific order. At times I also do Byosen, which is a techinique for scanning the body for imbalances.

During a session, I always receive the guidance I need as to where to put my hands-- and it comes in various ways. Sometimes it is just a silent knowing that the energy needs to be concentrated on one part of the body. Or it could be a gentle pull that tugs at the hands and so I follow it and lay my hands on a part of the body. Most times, though, I feel guided just to lay my hands on the head and quite often my client will confirm that the energy is in various parts of the body. Spiritually guided healing energy knows where it is needed.

What Happens In a Session

There is always variety in a Reiki session. One session differs vastly from another- no two are ever the same. One person may need silence during the session; with another, cheerful banter can be more effective as the Reiki flows where it is needed without my human intentions getting in the way.

And where does the mind go? This again is where deep spiritual practice comes into play. There could be a feeling that one needs to pray, or simply “listen” to the impressions being given by the body.

At other times the heart senses that the person needs someone who will listen unconditionally.

How the human body responds to Reiki also varies greatly. Because I have no control over the energy, whatever is needed is what is given to the healee. Some fall asleep, others weep, sometimes legs jerk uncontrollably, or the body releases so much pent up emotions it begins to move in convulsion-like movements. Sometimes, as we discuss their personal issues, the clients’ bodies move in different ways- a clear indication that blockages are being resolved.

During a session there could be silence, laughter, tears, joy, sadness, relief and wonder. It is simply amazing and as each session progresses and ends, I always, always give thanks for this beautiful work that I had been gifted with. Being a reiki therapist is fulfilling, amazing, surprising…simply wonderful.

Beyond My Experience

Reiki has not only been a way through which I could help others. It has become a way of life for me and as s a Reiki therapist, I find it so heartwarming to be able to help others re-learn the language of silence and re-establish the lines of communication within the self.

I have no doubt that each Reiki therapist in every part of the world has his or her own fascinating story to tell no matter what their lineage. We are all fortunate because we all have access to the healing energy from Source and can witness the healing capacity of the body when the Divine is allowed to come through.It is sad that some Christian quarters have cast unfavorable opinions towards the Reiki community. I don’t think though that there is any cause for concern. Each one of us has the intent to heal ourselves and help others heal – our own small contribution towards helping the world through our own individual practice. And in the ultimate analysis, that is what matters most.

As we go about our work as Reiki practitioners, we offer a form of service to the world. In a handbook attributed to Mikao Usui, he laid out the path for us when he said "In times like these, the happiness of humanity is based on working together and the desire for social progress. This is why I would never allow anyone to possess it (Reiki) just for himself!. . . .Each of us has the potential of being given a gift by the divine, which results in the body and soul becoming unified. In this way (with Reiki), a great many people will experience the blessing of the divine. First of all, our Reiki Ryoho is an original therapy, which is built upon the spiritual power of the universe. Through it, the human being will first be made healthy, and then peace of mind and joy in life will be increased."

Rosanna Rogacion is a Reiki Master Teacher whose practice is located in Manila, Phillipines.

Reiki - uniquely suited to complement all other natural healing modalities and allopathic treatment - innovative Reiki program at Maine's largest teaching hospital

By Patricia Keene

Hats off to Maine Medical Center and to the dedicated volunteers and employees who are utilizing Reiki every day, in almost every part of this place of healing! Beginning in August 2004, the hospital has endorsed this training program that certifies Reiki I and II practitioners. Classes held each month at the Falmouth, MMC location, are purposefully kept to a small teacher/student ratio, with an inviting and supportive circle style format. Additionally, the hospital sponsors a facilitated once a month Reiki Support/Enrichment group to provide informative, supportive gatherings for sharing, learning and keeping skills fresh. Volunteers as well as clinical personnel and other employees throughout the Maine Health system have availed themselves of this opportunity to enhance clinical and personal development. The product of this venture is twofold:

1. A well received and rapidly growing volunteer program at the hospital that provides Reiki, at no cost, to patients and their families who have self-referred or been referred by health care workers, including, several physicians

2. Health professionals who, in vastly increasing numbers, make this modality an integral part of their day-to-day patient care and are restored and rejuvenated all the more for it! How could this be, you say?

Reiki is a unique complementary health modality that provides deep relaxation, reduces stress and promotes the innate healing process on all levels of being. The practitioner is a conduit for the Reiki energy; the recipient self-directs this energy to wherever it needs to go. The overall intelligence of one’s being will direct the healing energy, even if the person is unaware, unconscious, or not cognizant, e.g., a newborn or someone in a comatose condition. Additionally, the practitioner or anyone in close proximity will receive the energetic benefit and come away refreshed! Happily, Reiki does not need any particular time frame and the practitioner need not give a “session” in order to benefit self or others. With grounding exercise and intention, Reiki will flow as one goes about daily tasks.

Not having any religious affiliation, Reiki is a spiritual practice was founded in the 1900's by Mikao Usui, and takes into account the whole person, and, indeed, the whole of life.  After many years of questing,  Usui formalized and ordered this wonderful work as a natural healing modality which can aid and assist every other method of healing, allopathic or complementary. It is simple yet profound; anyone and everyone can learn this work and benefit from it. Children as young as six years of age can incorporate Reiki and learn applications, albeit from a modified class presentation!

From the onset of the Reiki program at Maine Medical, all involved recognized the importance of data capture. To that end, data has been compiled that shows where, when and how referrals are made and results of Reiki treatment as perceived by patients/family and anecdotal information, all of which clearly evidences the enormous positive effect of Reiki as part of the hospital experience. Varying reports of Reiki treatment point to anything from achieving a more relaxed state and better rest to easing pain and enhancing the healing process! Many patients report emotional soothing effects of Reiki and an overall sense of peacefulness. The remarkable possibilities streaming from this work are practically endless; calming during both pre- and post-surgery, soothing and lessening unpleasant side effects of anesthesia, de-stressing and relaxing so that the body’s own intelligence can more easily tune in to the healing process at hand.

Students of Reiki who have been experiencing and practicing this modality share extraordinary stories. Several have recounted incidences where people who, at the end stage of life have been greatly soothed and aided, thus being able to put affairs to right, mentally and emotionally clear in order to say goodbyes and make transitions with greater ease. Likewise, Reiki has aided family members of patients in these same ways.

Reports from the nursery and the NICU show that babies are benefiting. Reiki seems to calm and sooth them, especially, those born addicted to substances.

Equally important and not to be overlooked, is the benefit to busy health care professionals as they take on what sometimes may feel like Herculean tasks. Reiki, the modality of being as opposed to doing, self-administered or administered by another, even for 3-5 minutes, can serve to refresh, relax, re-focus and buoy; on all levels, administering maximum benefits with minimum time and effort. In fact, there really is no effort with this “work” as the already available universal energy does it all for us. The single, most significant awareness when offering Reiki to another (or self, for that matter) is to detach and let go of the outcome, keeping the intention that the work be done for the individual’s highest healing good. Thus, one avoids making predictions or setting restrictions on the process.

I extend appreciation to all those within the hospital who work with Reiki and/or who refer patients for this life enhancing treatment that has a myriad of benefits for well being.

Projected hopes are that soon Reiki will be an integral part of the offerings at Maine Medical Center and Maine Health out posted offices, especially places such as the Breast Care Center and the Brighton campus. The only deterrent presently, is that volunteers have more requests than they can fill in the hospital proper. It is important to note, many clinical employees in other locations are Reiki trained and most of them are integrating Reiki as they administer health care. This is a step forward!

As training continues, as education brings awareness of this complementary offering to the forefront and as patients continue to request Reiki, it is only a matter of when, not if, this life enhancing modality will be offered throughout the system.

Editor's note: This article originally appeared on the author's website in February, 2008. Since then, Patricia reports that Reiki is being more formally integrated with other offerings for treatment on the oncology wing, the Gibson Pavilion, coordinated by Dr. Mark Hand, and at the cancer treatment facility in Scarborough. Patricia facilitates the once a month Reiki Support/Enrichment Group at the Dana Center at MMC and continues to teach Reiki I and II classes as well as Reiki Master/Teacher year long apprenticeships, all of which MMC reimburses employees for through individual training funds. Her classes are open not only for MMC employees but others as well.

Patricia Keene is a Reiki Master Teacher and polarity therapist who provides integrated bodywork, including polarity, Therapeutic Touch, Reiki and basic cranial work. She has recently expanded her practice and offers Reiki in both Westbrook and Auburn, Maine.

Music we love to practice Reiki by: Al Conti

Born to a family of artists in Argentina, award-winning composer and musician Al Conti traveled the world and also worked as an actor before settling in Vermont, where he records in his home studio. His latest CD is Northern Seas, in which he has woven the sounds of ancient and modern instruments together to create mythical landscapes based on ancient Norse mythology -- now that's world music! It's also ideal for Reiki treatment sessions, meditations, or just relaxing.

For the first time, we're offering three different options for listening and purchasing this week's featured music: you can buy individual tracks or the whole album on iTunes OR, or if you're in the United States, you can go to and choose Al Conti's music as one of you stations. Pandora is free, but it does have the occasional ad, which would be a jarring interruption to a Reiki session. It does, however, give you a chance to check out this and other music we love to practice Reiki by...

Please welcome this month's Guest Editor, Elaine Grundy

Dear readers,

This  month's edition of The Reiki Digest was put together by Elaine Grundy who stepped in when we had a last minute scheduling change and pulled the whole thing together...under deadline!

Located in Singapore, Elaine has taught Reiki internationally for 15 years, is the author of Reiki, Pure and Simple, and most recently has  published the Reiki Report, which is based on findings from her survey on self Reiki treatment.  This month's lead article is first in her year long series following up on the survey and its results.

Please join us in welcoming Elaine!

Reiki and the benefits of Meditation - Implications from the Reiki Centre Survey

By Elaine Grundy
Photo courtesy of

 This is the first in a series of articles looking at how we can interpret the findings from the Reiki Centre Survey carried out last year to help us better understand how Reiki works, and how we can best use it. The data allows us to draw some interesting conclusions about Reiki.

First it seems that the more Reiki we do, the better the results we notice. In general, people who have been using Reiki for over seven years are three times more likely to notice significant benefits than those using Reiki for less than one year. This makes us conclude that Reiki is cumulative, and improvements are step by step. A useful finding in itself as it urges us to keep practicing and allow the body to rebalance in its own time.

Having said that, one significant anomaly is that even very new Reiki practitioners who only practice Reiki now and again see improvements in what I call the ‘peace pathways’. The Reiki Centre Survey found that respondents noticed improvements very similar to those of meditation. Nearly 70% of respondents reported a reduction in their levels of anxiety, worry and stress in less than one year. Correspondingly, over the same period, over 70% of respondents noticed an increase in their levels of self-love, peace and contentment, with this figure rising to over 85% of respondents over a longer period of time.

Since the Survey only captured data in yearly blocks, the improvements could have been noticed within weeks or months, certainly the qualitative responses indicate respondents saw changes soon after beginning self-Reiki, and this would mirror my own experience and the experience of many of my students.

Meditation, for years, has been known in the East to be extremely health giving, calming and beneficial. Most Reiki practitioners attest to the similarities between Reiki and meditation, especially when it comes to the results they feel. As the art of meditation spreads to the West, research is confirming its qualities. Dr Andrew Newberg has run several experiments on expert meditators to find that there is a difference in the way their brain’s function compared with non-meditators. Specifically, there is a decrease in activity in the logical (left) brain, resulting in less brain chatter. Over time, when meditators are not meditating they show increased alertness, consciousness and empathy with others.

In Dr Newberg’s recent research involving non-meditators who were given a chant to practice for eight weeks, results similar to those among the expert meditators were shown. These results show that anyone can learn to lessen the hold of their busy brains in a very short period of time and with little effort.Reiki can provide an access point which allows us to experience inner peace by encouraging the meditative effects as described by Dr Newberg and others.

Reiki seems to follow very similar pathways to meditation by lighting up the intuitive (right) side of our brain that resonates with connection, empathy, oneness and wholeness therefore increasing our feelings of contentment, peace and happiness.

Like meditation, it also can occur in a very short period of time. The way I look at it, when we allow the body to balance, we experience our natural state of being. This is not something that needs to be ‘worked at’ as it simply ‘is’. Like flicking a switch, we have direct access to inner peace as soon as we decide to look for it.

Author and Reiki Master Elaine Grundy is an international teacher and has just published The Reiki Report, a survey about self care.

Music we like to practice Reiki by:"Sadhana" by Peter Forster

Photo courtesy of Peter Forster

My favourite music to do Reiki to has remained unchanged for 15 years! Sadhana – “the path to love” by Peter Forster is deeply relaxing music in twelve parts, each five minutes long, gently guiding you through a Reiki session. Acoustic guitar, keyboards and various wind instruments interwoven with the healing sounds of nature invite you on a relaxing inner journey. Each track ends with soft wind chimes.

I find this perfect for self-Reiki as well as treating clients. Peter is a musician and Reiki practitioner so combines both talents to create a masterpiece, I must have listened to this CD thousands of times over the years yet it never grows old…timeless beauty!

You can find this CD on Peter Forster's website.
