Oprah’s Medical Guru endorses Reiki on National Television

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Stumbled across this article today over some criticism of Dr. Mehmet Oz, Oprah’s medical guru. Even through the article is putting the effects of reiki down to “quackery” (fake science), it will most certainly have more people investigating into what Reiki is. Perhaps a little bad press will be good for raising the level of awareness about Reiki in the general public!

The link to the article I’m referring to is here

I also found an interesting Australian Broadcasting Company Radio Science interview from 2001 with Dr. Oz about Reiki

Dr. Oz Recommends Reiki as Top Alternative Therapy Tip for 2010

If you are interested in learning more about Reiki – the best place to start is by contacting your local/national Reiki association.

Canada – Canadian Reiki Association

Australia – Reiki Australia

Let’s keep spreading the good vibes and support Reiki as an alternative healing method! Yeah!

Tania, where do you live?

I live in North Vancouver and my co-writer Tracy, lives in Perth, Australia.

What’s your background?

I spent several years in advertising before connecting with the holistic field of reiki and reflexology just over five years ago.

I also have an extensive background in the hospitality industry, currently managing the family Greek restaurant in North Vancouver.

Reiki is my passion and I also run my own business offering reiki sessions and classes.

What is this book about?

Reiki Vibes — Heartwarming Stories is a collection of inspiring tales contributed by reiki practitioners from around the globe, all committed to sharing the love, light and benefits of their experiences.

What did you hope to accomplish in writing this book?

Tracy and I love practising reiki and have witnessed incredible events that have transpired because of using it as a healing tool.

We feel we are in a time of great transition on our little planet and need to contribute as much positive energy as possible.

We joined together on a mission to inspire, educate and connect people to reiki. Our main method of achieving this goal was to produce a book with inspiring stories.

Who do you suggest reads this book?

I feel this book will appeal to anybody wishing to know more about how reiki works and what it is.

It covers a wide array of healing topics, including testimonials of people going through major positive life changes, stories of physical healing as well as emotional healing with the help of reiki and tear-jerking animal healing stories.

Australian Open Tennis and Reiki

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Inspired by watching the amazing athletes playing at the Australian Open Tennis Championships, I wondered if any of them used Reiki as part of their recovery efforts. Pat Cash of Melbourne (Australia), former Wimbledon Champion is a qualified Reiki healer and uses Reiki on himself.  In an interview with the Metro (UK) he states the following:

Interviewer: And do you do reiki, made famous by Big Brother’s Nasty Nick?

Pat Cash: I’m a reiki master. Recently, I had a stripped throat and couldn’t swallow. I was about to go to the doctor when I remembered reiki. My throat completely healed. There are certain things you’ve got to do to tap into the power.

Interviewer: Any reiki tips to offer to Metro readers?

Pat Cash: If you’ve got a pain in your head get someone to lay their hands on your temples for 15 minutes. Just try to relax. I think you’ll find it’ll help. Some people can do it really well, some people can’t.

Good luck to all the athletes at the Australian Open and if you are stressed out and need some relaxation before your next game, find a Reiki practitioner! You could start your search at Reiki Australia!

Pat Cash - Wimbledon Champion is a Reiki Master

Healing to Haiti

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Hello everyone,

Please join us in sending healing intentions to the people of Haiti and those who are traveling there to help them recover from the earthquake.  If you are uncertain how to do this, then we suggest just sitting quietly in a comfortable chair and visualising the island – for example as if you are flying over it – put the island in a bubble, white light etc. and send loving and/or healing thoughts into the island/bubble/white light.  It will do its job as energy follows intention.

With love and light,

Tracy and Tania

Has anyone else seen this movie?  “My Life” with Michael Keaton and Nicole Kidman.

Here is a clip….we’d really like to know about other movies that feature Reiki. If you know any, please leave the title in the comment box. A nice reminder about being in touch with The Source and your own heart.  Enjoy!
