Good mornin’ all…
Life is so easy to take for granted, just doing the things you do, without thinking.
But you have to start somewhere to develop those skills into habits.
Just as we were all learner drivers once, the same goes for using your Chikara-Reiki-Do skills.
Once we were all beginners at Chikara-Reiki-Do and needed to practice everything over and over until it became second nature and you formed a habit 🙂
So, I never mind answering even the daftest sounding question, about Reiki that is, unless of course, it’s ultra, ultra-daft 🙂
So please, never hesitate to ask.
Here’s a really good question from someone new to Chikara-Reiki-Do and it’s just the sort of thing you need to know at the beginning of your journey.
So, you asked:
‘I would like to know if, for the Cho Koo Ray, I should say its name three times while drawing it out?
Or wait until after I’ve drawn it and then say it?
Is it the same for the other symbols also?’
And I answered:
Whichever feels most comfortable for YOU to do, is the best for YOU 🙂
Remember – Reiki is not complicated or difficult 🙂
Really, really, know that 🙂
And you can always adjust things to suit your personality and the current circumstances.
Never be afraid to alter or adapt Reiki for the needs of the moment… for there is only ‘This moment’ 🙂
And the more you learn to TRUST yourself, the more confident you will be.
And not just as a healer, but in all the other areas of your life too. 🙂
At first drawing and speaking the name together may not flow…
…but later when you don’t have to ‘think’ so much about the ‘how’ of drawing the symbol – you may be able to draw and speak them at the same time.
That may feel a bit like rubbing your tummy and patting your head at the same time 🙂
But either way is perfick!
You may even find it easier to just ‘see’ the symbol kanji as a picture, instead of drawing it out line by line…
Simply ‘see’ the symbol as completely as you can, in your mind’s eye, whilst saying the name 3 times.
Because always remember – as with everything – it’s your intention which is the most important thing.
And as with everything else, learning to do things slowly and deliberately in the beginning, is one of the best ways of establishing your own rhythm.
Just because your friend or teacher does it one way, doesn’t mean it’s going to flow that way for you. 🙂
Just remember to keep it simple at all times 🙂
For Chikara-Reiki-Do really is simple!
I hope this has helped those of you who ‘didn’t like to ask’ such a straightforward but basic question.
It’s easy to forget the simple things and end up easily over complicating matters by over thinking them! 🙂
Have a personally powerful Chikara-Reiki-Do weekend…
