This afternoon my email inbox held a Breaking News email from The Reiki Digest, announcing that Pamela Miles, author of Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide, and a pioneer of Reiki in medical environments, will be a guest on The Dr. Oz Show this week. A quick check of my local station determined that it will show in Seattle tomorrow, January 6, 2010 at 3:00pm and 12 midnight on KOMO4.
According to the article on The Reiki Digest, the segment on Reiki was saved for last. Editor Janet Dagley Dagley, quotes Pamela, “Mehmet saves Reiki for the last, saying, ‘The next one I’m going to talk about is one of my favorites. We’ve been using it in the Oz family for years.’ Then he mentions that his wife is a Reiki master and that he and I worked together in surgery; then I demonstrate chair Reiki. (The audience member told me her headache improved but that’s not on the show.)”
As a Reiki Master Teacher for 12 years, and a pioneer in Reiki for animals, and someone still in awe of its gifts, I am thrilled that Reiki may finally get the full recognition that it deserves. My gratitude for the benefits in my own life as well as its gifts to my students and clients is boundless. An immensely positive shift took place in my own life when I took a Reiki class, for me it was essentially the birth of a new life. So this year I chose to teach Reiki Level I on my birthday, January 9th. Sharing the gifts that Reiki offers with others brings me great joy, and I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate.
My sincere thanks to everyone, from the original Masters to the newest Reiki students, for your passion for Reiki and your hard work in bringing its benefits to the attention of the world. Reiki rocks!
