How I learn about Reiki

I am my brother's keeper

This is my brother John Raphy Bistis. We use to call him BBOY in short of Baby Boy. He was the youngest and the only brother I had until May 2017 when he transcended back to our home in the cosmos.

Back in 2015, while I am in my second year of Psychiatry residency training he visited me during my 58 hour straight on duty from his training as a policeman which I ended up admitting him at 12 midnight due to massive hemoptysis (coughing out blood). To make the long story short, after diagnostics and surgical procedures, he was diagnosed to have a rare case of cancer called "synovial sarcoma" stage 4 with multiple lung metastasis.

It was during his first admission that I have learned about REIKI because the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry is a Reiki Practitioner. She visited me and my brother during this admission since we did not have any relatives in the place where I had my training. She gave Reiki to my brother while he continuously having a massive hemoptysis. The effect was miraculous as my brother stopped coughing and was able to sleep after a few minutes of hands-on reiki session. He was saved just minutes from being intubated as the intubation set was already prepared inside the room.

Since then, other psychiatrists who are reiki practitioners gave my brother reiki especially before, during and after his chemotherapy which helped him a lot. Reiki was also given to him when he was preparing to go back to the cosmos and helped him transcend peacefully last May 3, 2017. Reiki is also very much helpful to his wife, my parents, sister and me during his illness and after his death.

Because of my first-hand experience of the effects of Reiki, I took a year-long in-person training until I was certified as Medical and Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master.

I hope you could experience Reiki too. Let me share with you this healing technique.
