page is an article written by one of my students
(Jim Bennett) who is sharing ideas on aspects
of Reiki. The pages are intended to give some "food for thought"
and some are only the student's viewpoint. While a number of Reiki
facts are included, you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of
the content feels right to you. Richard Rivard

Reiki is an enabling technique for peak performance in organisations from the "coal face to the boardroom".
Reiki is Energy.
Energy is the Life Blood of organisation.
Reiki Energy is universal in form and can give Life Blood to organisations, their people and the communities they work in.
When a Practitioner is attuned (similar to tuning your radio/TV to the selected channel) to the Reiki Channel it acts like a variable transformer which gives control over the speed, depth and intensity of the current flow to the recipient/place or situation.
Practitioner competence is similar to other business competencies. At technician level there is Basic Awareness and Application. At engineer level there is skilful application where more detailed facilitation and problem solving techniques are exercised. At Technical Authority level there is Mastery of the techniques and application – innovation and development being exercised within the sector of work.
Reiki in Business Core Principles
The core principles of using Reiki in the workplace are as follows:
The possibilities of applying Reiki in the workplace are endless. The Space Director at NASA once said:
"Man’s limit to space travel is man!"
Similarly one could say the same about Reiki – it is limited by the creativity of wo/man…
Let’s look at some of the potential applications:
My recent involvement with Reiki in the Emergency Response arena was when I attended an International seminar on Joint Operations Command attended by International Fire/ Police/ Ambulance/ Local Goverment/ national Goverment Chief Officers.
The conference dealt with natural and "man made" disasters from 10s, 100s, and 10,000s casualties and fatalities. Including hurricanes, floodings, Bio, Chemical, Radiological and Nuclear hazards, flu pandemics etc.... A wide and varied subject area.
Local/National and International procedures and support mechanisms to deal with foreseeable and "unforeseeable" events. International terrorism being a key topic.... A nasty development to terrorism is that suicide bombers are consciously getting infected with HIV/Aids and their bone fragments have been found in Israel casualties that haven't immediately died in the incidents.... The potential for other Bio hazards is out there....
I floated the idea of Emergency Responders using Reiki.
For Emergency Response In Urban areas the principle First Aid Technique used by Paramedics/ambulance crews is to "Scoop and Run" - taking casualties ASAP to formal hospital care. They use a Triage methodology determining the Dead or dying, walking wounded and casualties in a life threatening, but saveable condition. My contention is that Reiki can extend what is called by the emergency services as "The Golden Hour" whereby the objective is to get patients to formal hospital care - their probability of recovery is far greater if they are received within this time scale.
My experience, small scale personal experiences, is that you can extend the Golden Hour to nearer 90 minute by Reiki techniques. Subsequent recovery is also enhanced as well as its use for pain control, mental and emotional support.
I find it works well with traditional First Aid e.g. ABC - Airway, Breathing, Circulation and the recovery position. I work on the lower part of the body - legs, ankles, feet on Shiatsu/Reflexology points and use "Reiki eyes" for the upper body whilst other first aiders attend to the "head area" until formal Paramedic support arrives.
Within the conference the Reiki Hypothesis was received somewhat cooly, slightly sceptical, but, not thrown out of court.
I believe that Emergency Responders could rapidly stabilise multiple casualties is a mass incident. A 30 second touch to establish communications. Moving rapidly from casualty to casualty - depending on your personal Reiki Field - hold a Reiki healing Field - I can work up to a 100 metre radius and flood the area with Reiki in a meditative trance state. Sensing within the Field where the energy is dropping and move closer either by sight or touch to augment it.
A number of experienced responders could maintain this healing Field for a fair amount of time - buying time for the Medics.
Hospitals have what they would call a surge capacity of dealing with multiple casualties requiring intensive care. Each intensive care casualty could require up 6 people to sustain life. There could be large numbers outwith these categories that are in distress - this is where Reiki comes into its own. I am potentially talking about 10s on hundreds of people!!!!
Another use for Reiki is in Remote location, mountain rescue, coastguard, lifeboats, military - the application use is endless.
See my paper on this topic….
As you have already realised the application of Reiki to the Business World is limitless.
Be creative and let Reiki lead you on a wonderful voyage of discovery….
For me it’s about learning and sharing…
All for one-one for All
Those acts are wrong that are not shared in happiness.
Those acts are wrong that are selfish
Those acts are wrong that are of ego
Those acts are of joy that cause a bonding between people and nations…
Complementary Medicine Techniques in Emergency Response
Complementary medicine can extend the orthodox Emergency Response "Golden Hour" and can provide a "window" to assist the "Scoop and Run" approach in urban areas.
In rural areas, where technical support is limited, it can provide a simple "hands-on" technique to ease pain, balance energy and provide a healing buffer until traditional medicine is available.
Complementary medicine, as we would call it in the west, has been in use for centuries in many parts of the world.
The Greek Medicine of Asclepios and Hippocrates followers used "alternative therapy" techniques from circa 500BC to as late as 400AD. The Roman Centurions used these emergency response techniques on the battlefield as did the Knights Templars.
Ayurvedic Medicine is also an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent. It is presently in daily use by millions of people in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and indirectly through it being the major influence on Unani, Chinese and Tibetan Medicine, in China, Tibet, and Pakistan.
Chinese Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with an unbroken tradition going back to the 3rd century BC. Yet throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions, and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use. This process continues today with the development of modern medical diagnostic techniques and knowledge.
Chinese medicine includes all oriental traditions emerging from Southeast Asia that have their origins in China. Practitioners may work within a tradition that comes from Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan or Korea. It is a complete medical system that is capable of treating a very wide range of conditions. It includes herbal therapy, acupuncture, dietary therapy, and exercises in breathing and movement (tai chi and qi gong). Some or several of these may be employed in the course of treatment
Reiki (ray-key) is a natural healing technique that feels like a flow of a high frequency of energy into and through a practitioner, and out the hands into another person
The system of Usui Reiki Ryoho grew out of the original teachings of Mikao Usui, a Japanese man, around 1922. He had called his system "My Method" or Usui-Do. In the West, it was previously thought that it was his purpose to find out how famous healers like Buddha and Christ healed the sick, without depleting their own inner energy.
During his life and especially during his mission he studied old religions and ancient teachings including the Japanese forms of Taoism. He was also a student of martial arts and knew the founder of Judo, Jigoro Kano, very well. The organisation that survived him, Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, teaches that he experienced a solution and a very powerful personal energy that we now call Reiki, while fasting on the Holy Mountain of Kurama Yama, just outside of the spiritual city of Kyoto, Japan. According to Gakkai history, he received a powerful form of energy while in meditation and was knocked unconscious for hours. He awoke feeling wonderful and refreshed, and had the ability to recall the energy. He soon discovered the energy gave the bonus of an amazing healing ability
My Belief is that Reiki can be an additional life saving technique for use in Emergency Response situations and can be effectively used by:
The simplest way to think of it is like water flowing through a body, energy pathways are "un-kinked" to assist the flow and ease the tension maximizing energy efficiency and peak flow for healing.
Remote energy points can be found in the body – in particular the feet and hands. This is how Reflexology works. For example this can allow complementary EmercoReiki (Ed. Jim's term for emergency response Reiki) to be used whilst traditional resuscitation is being performed in the upper part of the body.
This is a technique that once trained in, requires no specialist equipment to be carried and is available 24/7.
My belief is that this healing technique is worthy of further study and trial within operational conditions.
