Miracle Hour, Reiki Style

On Sunday, I enjoyed reading about and watching short videos on the Danish inspired Hyyge, which includes bringing comfort home by creating a cozy surroundings. During this meander, I stumbled on Chelsea Dinen's introduction to waking a bit earlier and giving yourself a Miracle Hour

Popularized by Hal Elrod, the Miracle Hour weaves elements found in the Artist Way Morning pages, my teacher Shiloh's Morning CafĂȘ, and  to beginning the day with Reiki and Qigong.

The acronym SAVERS gives a key to the ~ 10 minuet components for one's Miracle Hour:
  • S - Silence (Self-Reiki!)
  • A - Affirmation (Mental/Emotional self treatment)
  • V - Visualization
  • E - Exercise (Qigong)
  • R - Read - Dharma /wisdom teachings
  • S - Scribing (Reiki or Gratitude journal)
This morning, I began my practice with Self-Reiki, combining both Silence during the treatment flow, and Affirmations, thinking of the Reiki Principles, and including an Affirmation with th my Mental/ Emotional treatment. I began the session with my eyes, and moved down my head and then torso, before returning to my forehead and base of the scull for the M/E portion.

I love to Read, and often do before getting up!
 This morning I picked my book club selection, Book of Joy,  Lasting Happiness in a Changing World. This is an enchanting 5 day conversation between the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, on the occasion of the Tibetan Lamas 80th BD in 2015. (It was hard to stop reading at 10 minutes!) 
I was blessed to see each of them at events at the Convention Center in Portland, and my scarf from the Dalai Lama's visit hangs on my painting of the Apostle to the Apostles, Mary of Magdala. 
I Scribed as I read, contemplating these global heros, and their uplifting messages. If you have a Reiki journal, that's a lovely place to Scribe reflections, insights and gratitude.

Like Chelsea, I saved my Exercise for later, when I came downstairs.
I love Qigong, which I've done for 35 years, and often practice in the morning. While
New Moon Visioning
I have several forms and teach, I also enjoy following a video at times, and this morning chose
this one, with Marissa. I lit a candle, and moved my chi. 

Then I pulled out a Vision Board, and enjoyed the images, as I sipped my morning tea, from a cup my granddaughter made me in her pottery class. Here are some more examples. I intend to do some visionary everything/scribbling tomorrow.

I  really enjoyed the practice, and invite you to experiment with incorporating a Miracle Hour into your day. What favorite practices will you include? Share in the comments! 


  1. Some come to Reiki to help with their vitality levels, dealing with the worry of every day life or when changes are going on in their lives. Others will come to create themselves profoundly and encounter a more prominent feeling of significance throughout everyday life. A significant number of my customers are well and need to remain as such so reiki encourages them to keep up that amicability so they can react to the difficulties in an unexpected way.

      am from canada, would want to tell you all that i was able to put an end to my divorce issue and restore my marriage again, because i never wanted it to happen. i don’t know what came over my husband that he was filling for divorce, i tried to talk him out of it when he told me and he didn’t listen to me, i had no other option than to seek for the help of a spell caster and now am glad i did. Because if not for the help of spell, i don’t know what would have become of me by now because i loved my husband so much that i couldn’t stand loosing him. The spell worked like magic with the way and manner my husband change and started showing love instead of the divorce he was planning. i just too happy that everything is in place for me now. I would gladly recommend the use of spell to any one going through marriage problems and want to put an end to it. [ , or whatsapp : +2349066410185 was were i got the help to restore my marriage]
