Kellie Gilmour - Mindfulness Through the Practice of The Five Usui Reiki Principles

 "'Mindfulness' is one of the most often heard buzzwords today in the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, addiction and other related mental health disorders. Some say it's the new 'CBT' or 'NLP'. GPs, consultants and mental health authorities have blazed a trail for this effective and relatively new-to-the-referral-circuit technique, reducing the need for medication and helping to clear the surgery waiting room. Now, imagine asking a GP for a referral to a Buddhist philosopher or Reiki Master to deal with one's anxiety symptoms... what do you think the response would be?

The mindfulness techniques used in psychology today are actually a concept inherited from Buddhist tradition and part of the The Noble Eightfold Path, the principle teachings of the Buddha in which one strives to achieve enlightenment or 'Nirvana'. Doesn't sound very clinical when explained this way, huh?
Reiki is mainly known in the West as a complementary therapy, a relaxing  hands-on healing treatment that can have a bit of a reputation for being a simple bolt-on to your facial at the spa or a something a friend of a friend can offer you with a warmed up hand when you mention you have a 'bad back'. The tradition of original Japanese Reiki was actually formed as a spiritual practice and philosophical realisation, a path to self awareness and happiness developed by Shinto-Buddhist Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. It just so happens that when one becomes aware of the concept of Reiki and practices daily, the body's ability to self-heal more quickly and efficiently becomes a handy side effect. (Interestingly, one of the scientifically demonstrated benefits of 'Mindfulness Meditation' is 'an increase in the body's ability to heal'. Sound familiar?)

Being a Reiki Master Teacher myself, practising since 2005 in Western, Japanese and 'clinical' forms, I hadn't heard of 'Mindfulness' as a stand alone therapy until a few years ago. I knew the word from my Buddhism studies and the concept from my daily practice of reciting the Five Reiki Principles, and to me it seemed that embracing mindfulness is just common sense and helped to make me (and anyone I taught in my Reiki classes) feel hugely happier and healthier. So now I invite not just Reiki students, but anyone who has an interest in becoming more mindful, less anxious or seeking relief from stress or stress-related conditions to learn more about these very simple but very effective principles and how to incorporate them easily into their daily lives."
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher Kellie Gilmour was one of the first students in the UK to gain an ITEC qualification in Holistic Reiki, which is recognised across the world. Her portfolio and study notes were taken by the governing board to be used as a benchmark for future courses. She has also studied with a Japanese Jikiden Reiki Sensei and with a western-style Reiki Master, holding strong lineages via Chiyoko Yamaguchi and William Rand, the renowned author and founder of the "International Center for Reiki Training". She qualified as a Reiki Master Teacher in 2008 and also hold qualifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Counselling Skills, Anatomy and Nutrition. She is a Master Teacher Member of the UK Reiki Federation and currently practices at the Falmouth Natural Health Practice, also travelling up and down the UK teaching groups wherever she is needed Like Hypnotherapy Group Talks - update on Facebook
