Core interests


I learnt Reiki in 2004 when my girlfriend at the time learnt that my mum was a Reiki master. Of all the healing related modalities I've learnt, Reiki has been the most consistently helpful healing tool I've used on myself and others.

Law of attraction

Whether I like it or not, I've noticed the principle of the law of attraction consistently working reflecting my thoughts and feelings in the creation of my reality.

A belief system is only a thought you continue to think. What we believe fundamentally shapes our experience of the world. A fact is only realised when we make that thought incontrovertible in our minds; we believe it, don't question it, and make it so. A self fulfilling thought. Those that utter statements as facts have power over the weak minded.

The psychology visualisation test

Leopard - powerful, astute, beautiful (my idealised self)

Eagle - free, unbounded, clear-sighted (who I am most attracted to)

50 miles (80kms/hour) is the metaphorical speed at which I cruise through life. I'm moving but I take in my surroundings.
