I'd like to commence my posting activity by talking about the name to my website. I had been thinking for a while about having my own website. First thing, I needed a name. If you did read the Welcome page you know how important freedom is to me, so the name to the website had to be around that. For days I had been thinking about different names but with no avail. Possible names like freedom4life came up but nothing really convinced me. Some names were too cheesy or just blatantly inauthentic. I did a search in Google for some of the names I came up with and the internet domain was already taken. I was getting frustrated. I gave it a rest for a few days and didn't think about it.
One day, I was in a bus seating on the front seat. The driver had the radio on, tuned in to one of the radio stations in London. It wasn't too loud but I could hear the DJ talking and the music playing. Meanwhile, I decided to give it another try to find the name for my website. I was so immerse in my thoughts while I was hearing the radio in the background. Suddenly, and just when I was getting frustrated again because my quest in pursue of a name was taking me nowhere, the radio came on to the foreground. It was like if the driver turned the volume up but he didn't as I was watching him. Right at that moment, the DJ finished talking and proceeded to play the next song. I could hear the instruments playing, the music had started and then...
"I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You're so self satisfied, I don't need you
I've got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free"... (See the full video)

That's right, it was Queen's "I Want to Break Free" song! Wow, that was amazing! The name to my website had just been given to me. Next thing I started to play with the words in order to make a connection with Reiki and learnt that by playing with the letters in the word "Breaking" I could spell "Reiki" without changing the pronunciation of the word. With no effort at all I had just found the name for my website: I Immediately checked if the internet domain was available, and luckily it was, so I went ahead and secured it. That day the name for my website was given to me and I must say I'm very grateful for it.
