The Ten Best New Year’s Resolutions for Reiki Practitioners

the ten best new years resolutions for reiki practitionersHave a “Happy New Year,” dear Reiki friends. May the New Year 2015 bring you health, love, prosperity, happiness and peace. We would like to  to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for your continued kindness and support throughout the years. It is both an incredible honor and privilege to have you as our Reiki friends, students and graduates. May this year be a significant one in your spiritual journey and may you and yours be blessed.

It has become tradition for The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing that on the first day of a new year, we post the “Ten Best New Year’s Resolutions for Reiki Practitioners.” We are delighted to present you with the 2015 version. Enjoy!

1.  Resolve to practice Reiki self-treatment regularly. Reiki Practitioners who practice Reiki self-treatments experience substantial benefits to their overall health, i.e., physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Make daily Reiki self-treatment a new habit for 2015. (Note: Voted #1 Reiki New Years Resolution for 3 years in a row!)

2. Resolve to give Reiki sessions to others. Help friends, family members and pets to be healthier and feel better by giving them regular Reiki sessions.

3.  Resolve to start a meditation practice. Meditation reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and improves immune function. There are hundreds of benefits to meditation validated by more than 600 studies.

4.  Resolve to eat healtier foods. Good nutrition and Reiki work hand in hand. Hawayo Takata always combined sound nutritional principles with the practice of Reiki. By doing so, you will get better results from your Reiki sessions. Remember … you are what you eat.

5.  Resolve to review and practice what you have learned in Reiki class. Review your notes from your Reiki classes and brush up on what you already know, or take a Reiki class to review the material you have learned earlier.

6.  Resolve to improve your Reiki skills. Select a Reiki skill that needs improvement … for example, the scanning technique, and practice it.

7.  Resolve to make Reiki a part of your spiritual path. Reiki is not just for giving table sessions. Reiki is a way of life. Reiki gently presents you with the teachings that you need to acquire and guides you forward on your spiritual path.

8.  Resolve to apply the Reiki skills you have learned to other areas of your life. Find creative ways of using Reiki. For example, you could give Reiki to your food before eating, to your drinking water, and to your house plants.

9.  Resolve to share your knowledge of Reiki with friends and family. Spread the good word. Tell your friends about Reiki.

10.  Resolve to continue with your Reiki education. Become a more powerful and effective healer. There is much more to be learned …

Reiki Volunteer Opportunities at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston

Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston invites all Reiki practitioners, certified in Reiki Level 2 or above, to apply for enrollment in its volunteer Reiki Practicum Program. BWH’s Reiki Practicum Program is looking for volunteers who are ready to serve from their hearts by offering comfort, care, and compassion while gaining Reiki experience in a major hospital setting.

Our program offers Reiki practitioners a wide range of opportunities to work with patients in critical need of comfort and care. These patients include cancer patients, pre-operative patients, post-operative patients, and so much more. Reiki has effectively helped BWH patients with pain management, stress and anxiety, restlessness, spiritual connection, and many health conditions.

The program itself requires a 100-hour total time commitment from every volunteer. Each volunteer commits to one 2-hour shift, once per week. Some volunteers choose to stay for longer than their 2-hour minimum for their weekly shifts. The program seeks reliable volunteers who are able to show up for the same shift each week, although we do offer some flexibility for those with varying work schedules (examples including nursing students, nurses, etc.). We are currently only accepting volunteers with weekday availability, as that is when our coordinators are available to offer training and support.

As we have limited parking options, we are really looking for volunteers whom live in the Greater Boston Area and find public transportation easy or whom drive and are able to pay for their own parking. Our MBTA T-stop is Brigham Circle on the Green Line’s E-line. The parking garage across the street from our hospital charges $9 for 2-3 hours, $10 for 3-4 hours, and $12 for 4-5 hours.

The average completion time of the 100-hour practicum is one year. Upon completion of 100 total hours of volunteer service, BWH Reiki practitioners receive a certificate of completion from the Hospital to help enhance their credentials as professional Reiki providers.

Many BWH Reiki volunteers feel hugely inspired when witnessing the health benefits that their patients experience while receiving Reiki treatments. Many of our volunteers find that they benefit so much from their unique experiences in the hospital that they decide to stay with us for longer than 100 hours. A few volunteers have been with the program for five years or more.

The BWH Reiki Practicum Program is honored to collaborate with Lourdes Gray and the John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing. Anyone certified to practice Reiki Level 2 or above is welcome to apply. For those who are enrolled in Reiki Master training with Lourdes, the BWH Reiki Practicum Program is a great way to fulfill your graduating requirement of 100 hours of practicum experience.

Thanks so much for your interest. If you have any questions at all about the program or you are interested in applying, please email Matthew McDonald, the BWH Reiki Program Coordinator, at mmcdonald21@partners.org, with the subject title “John Harvey Gray Center Posting: Interested Volunteer.”
