Can I Teach Reiki After a Self-Attunement?

Hi, I’m Judith Conroy of Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki.

So, question…

If I self-attune to Reiki, would I become a Reiki master and be legally permitted to teach Reiki courses?


The short answer is yes – but becoming good at anything, including Reiki, takes personal experience.

Becoming a good teacher at anything is an art in itself.

People often say we are doing a disservice to Reiki and that people will go out there and bring Reiki into disrepute because they can’t really do it.

I know that is not so.

If you cannot do what you say you can do, then you will be found out and no one will go to you.

Charlatans and fly by nights will always fall by the wayside, whilst looking for the next thing to bolster their ego.

Reiki is simple to learn and understand, but being good at it, being powerful, dynamic and the very best you, you can be is a totally different matter…

Can I Change the Reiki Symbol Names?

Hi, I’m Judith Conroy from Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki.

So, question:

You mentioned that the symbols don’t really mean anything, that they simply give us focus.

Could I substitute symbols or words that are simpler for me to understand.

For example, instead of the Power symbol and name, substitute the word power and a lightning bolt, or is it important to use the ancient pictures and words.

I realize the ancient symbols would be more impressive or mystical to use in the healing of someone else.

But I’m not a real mystical person.

Just someone who is pulling out of 30 years of stagnant Christianity than trying to actually become spirit filled.


I’ve been asked this same question several times before.

And I know my answer confuses a few people, but you are right.

The symbols are just that, symbols…

Can I become a Reiki master if my Reiki master says no?

  Hi, I’m Judith of Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki. So, question: I’ve done Reiki one and two about five years ago, but my Reiki master said I couldn’t do the master as I’m not ready for it yet and may not be for quite a while. I have a few problems […]

Becoming More Effective in Channeling Reiki

Question: Are we becoming more effective in channelling Reiki and giving Reiki, each time we self-attune or use our Reiki energy.

Answer, Yes…

Each time you redo your self attunement, you are recommitting and reinforcing your intention to use Reiki and to feel and demonstrate it.

Each time you recommit to your Reiki energy, the stronger and more connected to yourself you become.

The more you understand your Reiki energy, the more understanding you become of yourself.

Then your possibilities open up exponentially.

Then you understand the words. You are the power.

I love this quote written by Marianne Williamson in her book,

A Return to Love.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous…

Chikara-Reiki-Do – Weapons of Mass Construction

Good mornin’ all

Now, as you probably know, I get asked some odd questions about Chikara-Reiki-Do…

…but this one takes the biscuit!

Q… Show me weapons of Reiki. (That’s all the question consisted of, so I thought I’d think of it as being more like this instead: Chikara-Reiki-Do – weapon of mass construction

So, my thoughts about this:

If I had to say how you could protect yourself with Chikara-Reiki-Do, then it would be because Chikara-Reiki-Do keeps you calm and relaxed yet aware and sharp – at the same time.

Which is very handy in an emergency situation or when ‘avoiding’ unpleasant situations.

You could call it your Reiki Radar 🙂

But the word weapons, seems to suggest a pro-active mechanism.

So again, I’d say – doing a daily self-treatment is the best pro-active activity you can do…
