Reiki & Childbirth

I've attempted to teach myself to create pdf files. Testing to see if this works. Feel free to share with full credit. I'm proud - I like it.

Reiki handout
The handout is great- Are you open to feedback? :) It's great work, and I love that you included sources, so few people do that!

Re: Reiki handout
Always open to feedback - and thankful for it! It was hard for me, because I wanted to condense it to one page, while still explaining enough about Reiki itself, then Reiki & Birth. Sadly, so many people have never even heard of it.

I checked out your handout. It's Great! The only thing I would do is replace 'her' with 'their' where you wrote 'the healer usually places her hands'. But if the handout is something to do with a business you have and only females can be Doulas (I haven't a clue) then I wouldn't change it.

I also agree that it's nice to see sources given. =) Essential Reiki was my second book...and was recommended by my RM before my first two attunements. I often refer to the teachings in that particular book with my initiates and clients(which are mostly friends and family at present).

Thank you for your input! Actually, I have met one (but so far only one) male doula. :) The profession is by far dominated by women, though. If I used 'their', I think it would create a bit of a grammar faux pas, but I mainly just chose 'her' because this is a handout I give to my doula clients. :) I'm really glad you liked it, though. Did you have any problems reading it with the shape boundaries? I'm wondering whether to get rid of them.

So far Essential Reiki is the only book I actually have, but I did manage to find William Rand's book at the library. I can't remember the name, but it was very much like a manual. I found that extremely interesting. I'd love to get more books. I'm actually thinking of starting an Amazon wish list...but I'm afraid it would be too long! :)

Ahhh, I see
No problems at all =)

Though I've read articles by William Rand I've never read any of his books. I do have some books that are more like manuals and some that have mini manuals within. I'm an information junkie!

Reiki and Childbirth
Help! I was not to access your article on said subject. I speak about Reiki to expecting couples at the hospital I work at and would love your perspective on using Reiki for birth. Your assistance would be so appreciated!

Re: Reiki and Childbirth
Hi, Reiki K, thanks for stopping by my blog! I don't know why that link isn't working anymore. I have the file saved on my computer, and I'd be glad to email it to you if you leave me your email addy. I'd be happy to screen it so it's not posted publicly.

the file
I would really like a copy of your file on reiki and childbirth. My mother does reiki and I am using her as my labor coach and anything I or she can know beforehand, on what to do, etc, would be great. my email address is ronitwit@yahoo.com.

Re: the file
Hi, ronitwit! I'm sorry that the file doesn't seem to be there anymore. I've had some badluck in that my computer crashed recently, so I'll have to see if I still have that file in my recovered files, or else I'll have to recreate it. I'm sorry! I'll certainly look. In the meantime, if you have any questions about reiki &/or birth, please feel free to ask. I used reiki for my second birth, and I found it to be very cool (when I usually experience it as warm!) and calming.

Re: the file
This is a very late reply, but I'm afraid I must have missed some comment notifications! My apologies! I don't seem to have this handout any more. I will contact you if I get the time to put another together, but I have a newborn myself and things have been hectic, so I can't make any promises right now. I'm so sorry!

Reiki childbirth handout
Hi Ahavah Ehyeh. Another request for your hand out if it still exists? My partner is due to give birth very soon and as a reiki master I'll be asking for healing energy to assisting her all the way through the birth.I came across your forum and wanted to read some other views,ideas and advice.
Thank you,
Love and light.GLBH.

Re: Reiki childbirth handout
Hello, GLBH,

I'm very glad for your comment! I think I missed a comment or two on this post, although I do believe I was able to email at least one or two of those ladies a while ago. At any rate, I'm sorry to say that I no longer have this handout. I would love to make another since there seems to be so much interest, but I don't know when I could commit to redoing that. We have a needy newborn and are dealing with new work schedules. I will try to do a new post if I ever get another together though. My apologies!

I would be happy to send reiki to your partner, and to discuss anything if you have any questions or just want to chat about reiki & birth.

Peace,
Amanda
