Chikara-Reiki-Do, Scam or Sham
It’s been a little frosty this week for us, both literally and symbolically!
For, along with the usual email ‘telling us’ in no uncertain terms that our Chikara-Reiki-Do self-attunement is not a valid attunement to Reiki…
We received a message from one of our Chikara-Reiki-Do Masters who’d tried to join a couple of the more well known ‘Reiki Clubs’…
…and been refused entry because they self-attuned.
Now this, of course, is quite okay – as each ‘Reiki club’ is totally free to make up their own minds on what is ‘acceptable to them’ membership criteria.
But as our self-attuned Chikara-Reiki-Do Master has been refused admission on the grounds they are not ‘properly’ attuned I thought we’d better take a little look at this.
So hold on to your hats.
You see, I developed the Reiki SELF-attunement process because I truly believe it’s vitally important for everyone.
It is YOU acknowledging your own sovereign power!
It is YOU confirming YOU as being the sole driving force – the sole creator – of your own life path and all the experiences you choose to have along the way.
For there is only ONE universal life force energy – only ONE Universal Consciousness – it is you and you are it.
And Reiki is simply a name given to a particular quality of this, your own, remarkable energy.
Okay then – so why do these ‘Reiki clubs’ and their self-appointed ‘officials’ say that a ‘hands on’ attunement to Reiki is the only acceptable way of being attuned?
Well, if we generously overlook the semi-elitist nature of these clubs and the extra fees which can obviously be charged…
…I’m not exactly sure…
…as, when abiding by their very own rules, they’d actually have to refuse membership to Usui himself…
…as he didn’t have a ‘hands on’ attunement either!
Hmmm, bit of a problem there don’t you think?
Well not to worry – each to their own I suppose…
…but as far as I am concerned – and as Usui himself actually discovered…
Reiki is an absolutely inseparable quality of the universal, life force energy already flowing within everyone…
And Chikara-Reiki-Do is simply a beautiful yet extremely powerful method, of accessing this quality by way of self-attunement…
…or, more precisely, by way of self-empowerment!
Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not trying to discredit the ‘hands on’ attunement way of doing things – it’s a perfectly ok way of attuning to Reiki, but it’s just not the only way.
We encourage you to open up to your own true Divine Love and Wisdom…
…to truly know that you do not have to seek this anywhere other than from inside YOURSELF!
Now, if your desire is to heal the people of the world then that is absolutely wonderful.
To help and support others in need is a worthy cause – but you do not need to join any Reiki Club to do this.
You can get professional insurance and practice as a Reiki therapist without their so called ‘authority’ to do so…
…and, to be honest, they need you more than you need them.
So, does Chikara-Reiki-Do have its own club?
No… but if we did you’d find it very dangerous!
Because you’d need to be a free thinking powerful individual who wants to live life to its fullest potential and on your own terms.
And we’d expect you to take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for all your own actions and decisions.
We’d also expect the highest degree of common sense and GUMPTION from each and every one of you too.
But if, as one of our members, you should find yourself faltering for a moment, you’d find you were not alone and the whole group would pull together to support you, until you were strong enough to stand on your own two feet again.
No rules, no regulations, no control… just that lovin’ feelin’ from friends who know 🙂
Freedom is love in action 🙂
Now whilst we’re here, let’s also address the topic of whether Chikara-Reiki-Do is a scam and a sham as some would like to believe?
Well, obviously that’s for you to decide, but let me offer this…
We’re now entering our ninth year online. We’re still here, still growing and going from strength to strength 🙂
So we must be doing something very right and, indeed, thousands of others agree.
No, we’re not ‘traditional’ – we’re unique and original 🙂
And with what we show you about Reiki you can go on to use it in the regular way. You can practice and teach Reiki in the regular way too.
You can take what we share with you and grow exponentially in your understanding of life, the universe and all who sail in her and be happy to leave regular Reiki to those who want to be told what to do in every aspect of their lives…
…including how to utilise their own energy!
And even that, they are told, belongs to some higher, external force!
So now you know my opinions and you can be sure I shall remain steadfast and true to what works for me.
I trust myself and my intuition implicitly and I suggest you do the same.
If we feel right for you and having read our site and all the free information contained within it, you still feel drawn to us – then perhaps we may be right for you.
If you found us by ‘accident’ and we rattled your cage, then either explore the reason why that happened or simply move on if you are not yet ready to be free.
We will honour and respect your decision, as being the right one for you.
All we ask, in return, is that you extend to us, and our many thousands of Chikara-Reiki-Do Masters, this same courtesy.
OK then, now we have that all straightened out, I can get back to my Sunday roast 🙂
Till next week then…
