The True Warrior-Healer

Good morning all…

Many people have heard of Reiki these days but, unfortunately, most have been totally misled as to what it truly is.

You see, the majority of Reiki Master Teachers today seem to concentrate solely on it being…

…a ‘healing modality’ with great results being experienced.

And yes, that’s true, BUT that’s not all I believe Reiki to be.

So, let’s take a look at the meaning of the word Reiki…

Reiki = The universal and holy, spiritually conscious, life force energy that energises and animates all living things.

Chikara-Reiki-Do = The Way of Strength & Power Through Reiki 🙂

But what the bloomin’ heck does all that actually mean?

Well, Chikara-Reiki-Do, to me, is perfectly described as the INTERNAL aspect of a MARTIAL ART.

The Yin part that so many Yang martial artists fail to grasp 🙂

The Navajo say the Arrow can be used to take life or give life.

In Budo the Katana is the same. It can be used to give or take life.

Authentic Budo means to cease the struggle, besides being the Way of the Warrior…

You see, when two old martial arts masters come together to fight, neither does anything…

What Are The Reiki Symbols?

Good morning all…

What exactly are Reiki symbols you may ask 🙂

Well, to me, a symbol is…

…a reminder, a memory jogger, a point of focus, a hook to hang something on.

And it has no power what-so-ever of its own!

The ONLY power it has – is what I deem to give it. 🙂

If I don’t empower it with my attention and intention it’s just what it is – a nondescript representation… inactive and dormant.

You see, we all create symbols for different things

HP sauce is symbolic to me of my father… ha ha ha!

It’s a memory jogger, a link to a set of memories, feelings, emotions, sensations, mind photos.

Sliced tomatoes are symbolic of my old friend Alison. I can’t slice a tomato without thinking of her.

The music to the film Platoon is symbolic of Spike and Norman, two beautiful ginger cats we used to have. It’s very powerful and emotional for Chris and I, but means nothing to DC our son.

A pile of neatly folded washing is symbolic of Paddy, my mother in Law 🙂

And I’m sure you can bring many of these same things to your mind right now too.

But the ones I’ve just mentioned are the ones that are personal to me – they’re my symbolic memory joggers and they’ll have a totally different meaning to you…

Dying is as natural as living

Good morning all…

Death – a subject most Reiki healers try to ignore! Even doctors try to skim over the subject 🙂

They don’t like to mention it, especially as the solution to a problem or outcome to an illness!

But as a healer you’re going to stare down the barrel of death many times.

So, you must learn to embrace it, acknowledge it, and be at peace with it.

Dying is as natural as living 🙂

Don’t be afraid of death or people dying.

It’s part of the circle – one door closes and another opens!

And as a healer you can’t ignore death or cheat it.

If such a natural part of life scares you – then you need to address your own fears first.

If you embrace death and don’t fear it

– then you’ll appreciate Life in ALL its vivid variety!

If you don’t then what use are you to others?

You can only do all this if YOU’re in a place of peace and harmony yourself.

If your core is strong and happy 🙂

And when you’re in a place of inner peace and harmony, not much throws you off balance.

Not even someone dying.

But if something does unsettle you – you can just sit quietly for a moment or two, run some Chikara-Reiki-Do energy for yourself and come back to the middle again.

You see, when you’re centred – you approach life with a more serene attitude…

Chikara-Reiki-Do Balancing Act

Good morning all…

Now, as you all know I get a lot of communications from all sorts of folk and it never ceases to amaze me the preconceived ideas people have of me 🙂




IT specialist… Me! 🙂

Miracle healer…




Financial whizz… ha ha ha! 🙂

Job adviser…

Fraud, money grabber, devil’s advocate, saint and sinner and all the rest rolled into one… 🙂

Well, I like to think I’m a well-balanced person but what does that actually mean?

Well, if I’m so well balanced, then by definition, I must be a bit of both.

Don’t poke me with a big stick and expect a polite reply!

For the measure of my rudeness is also in my politeness…

I’m a well-balanced person after all 🙂 …

Reiki Mistake?

Good morning all…

Have you made any good mistakes lately? I’m proud to say that we have, but Reiki, a mistake?

That’s one of the ones we never made. 🙂

You see, we’re all brought up and taught at school, how bad it is to make mistakes, and that we must avoid ‘making mistakes’ at all costs.

Well, we disagree…

After all, what actually is a mistake?

A decision – gone wrong?

A choice – gone sour?

A preference that turned out not to be!

How can we possibly admit we were ‘wrong’ and still save face?

My mother used to say, ‘You’ve made your bed, now you have to lie in it’…

What nonsense is that?

Yes, you did create this unpleasant, unfavourable, unsuitable situation.

But do you know what?

If you have the power to create this situation, you also have the power to create another more favourable one too…
