Policy Statement: At this time we do not have research evidence of the accuracy and quality of Distance Reiki Attunements. In order to protect the public until accuracy or inaccuracy of distance attunements is determined scientifically, the certification center will not be accepting individuals for approval who have received distance attunements. Instead we invite individuals who have received distance attunements to contact a member of your local Reiki community and receive the more standard attunements. If there are members of the Reiki community that would like to fund a series of studies to confirm the reliability and validity of distance attunements, we are happy to support that effort.

Shamanism

Division Definition

Contemporary shamanic practitioners work with advanced compassionate spirits to alleviate pain and suffering and to restore power, balance, and wholeness to individuals asking for help for physical, emotional, and spiritual complaints. Shamanic practice includes: 1. Acknowledgment of the existence of spirits (souls), including advanced helping spirits of great wisdom and compassion; 2. Ability to alter one’s consciousness, most often through rhythmic percussion sound (particularly drums and rattles), and “journey” outside of time in order to interact with these advanced spirits in another reality and gain their assistance; 3. Offering, with appropriate training in shamanic healing methods, direct spiritual healing to individuals; 4. Such healing often involves the removal (extraction) of spiritual entities (“intrusions”) not belonging to the client, and the restoration of the client’s own spiritual power (soul retrieval) and power connections (power animal retrieval); 5. Consultation (divination) with the helping spirits on a person’s behalf, using various methodologies to connect with the spirits, in order to gain knowledge and useful information to assist the client in resolving life issues. (Note: This division is limited to non-indigenous practitioners as indigenous practitioners are covered under federal law.)

Medical Intuition

Division Definition

Though not a specific division yet, medical intuition is providing the medical community additional insights based in the subtle energy perspective which then the physician, family nurse practitioner or other health care professional can use in the effective treatment of their client/patient.

 

Division Requirements

Policy Statement: At this time we do not have a large enough group of training programs which focus exclusively on medical intuition to develop a formal division. We would like to invite those programs which do teach medical intuition exclusively to contact the Certification Center toward the development of a division board and division requirements.

Please contact Dr. Caitlin Connor, DAOM at caitlin_connor@mindspring.com for more information.

Remote Viewing

Division Definition

Uses coordinates and CRT procedures to establish connection, information and response to a client’s needs.

 

Division Requirements

Policy Statement: In conjunction with members of the Monroe Institute, Remote Viewing community and International Remote Viewing Association a policy statement is being developed to the effect that Remote Viewing is not to be used as a treatment process for medical issues. It may be used as part of a research process with all of the appropriate Federal Guidelines and research parameters. A protocol for that process is being developed by a combined team from Monroe Institute and the Certification Center and will be available by Jan 1, 2020.

Please contact: Dr. Brian Dailey, MD. at bdailey@rochester.rr.com for more information.
