FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ's)
What is This Website?
This website is the official worldwide website of Chios® Energy Healing, perhaps the most comprehensive and powerful aura and chakra-based energy healing art in the world today. It contains information and full explanation of the "breakthrough" energy healing techniques of Chios. Chios Energy Healing is based upon a new series of powerful techniques that specifically and powerfully heal the true, root energetic defects in the aura and chakras—techniques which have not previously been available in any spiritual or energy healing system. The Chios techniques are organized into three levels: 1) an introductory level (Chios Level I) in which you will learn simple energy channeling and how to sense the energy field with your hands; 2) an intermediate level (Chios Level II) in which you will learn to "read" the energy field, sense simple energetic defects in it, and learn many healing techniques to correct those defects, and 3) a Master level (Chios Level III/Chios Master Teacher)—containing the full power of this healing system—in which you will learn to fully sense and see the chakra system and seven layers of aura, and correct the energetic defects in them using a series of very powerful original techniques. These Chios Master Techniques—Chakra Charging, Chakra System Rebalancing, Radiatory Healing, Seventh-Layer Healing and Frisson Healing—are perhaps the most powerful energy healing techniques of their kind available anywhere in the world. Chios healing treatments, using these techniques, provide healing that might otherwise be unavailable from other healing arts. They may also facilitate spiritual growth, as an adjunct to other personal growth practices, as well as to provide generally enhanced health to body, mind and spirit.
What Else is Provided as Part of Chios®?
Chios healing includes an integral meditation method (Chios Meditation), a powerful meditation method for the energy healer which may provide all of the well-known benefits of meditation plus the development of the special abilities used in energy healing (visualization, the ability to perform intuitive readings, the ability to see the aura, the ability to direct energy, etc.). This meditation method is optional, but may assist you in rapidly acquiring these useful abilitlies. Chios also includes an additional series of personal growth exercises for the personal development of the energy healer, also optional, which fosters other abilities important to this healing work (intuitive self-reading, self healing, empathic perception, thought communication, etc). An important part of Chios that is also included are in-depth procedures for complementary care of serious physical illness (the many forms of heart disease and cancer, diseases of the internal organs, brain and nervous system diseases, etc.). Chios is a comprehensive, fully integrated system of advanced original energy healing techniques beyond any previously available.
Why is So Much of This Information Put Out for Free on This Website? I Don't See Any Other Websites With Such Comprehensive Information on Them.
Energy healing is a key element of the profound change in consciousness now underway on our world, in this important time of transition. While the Chios system is trademarked and copyrighted (to protect the purity of the knowledge, and to prevent theft or misuse), much of this information is made freely available to you, on this website, so you can explore this knowledge. You can learn real energy healing directly from this website, with nothing else required. An integral foreign language translator, on each page of this website, can be used to translate all this information into any of 64 different languages—it is fully accessible to anyone in the world. As with academic or scientific knowledge, which is published openly to foster the advancement of human knowledge and society, so is this important knowledge shared openly with all. Many other energy healing arts (with little or no original content and far less effective techniques) hoard all their knowledge and charge high fees for classes and seminars. You will have to ask them how that fits into the new paradigm of openness, sharing, genuine spirituality and world consciousness emerging on our planet today. Most of the Chios information is made freely available to you so that you may heal yourself, your patients and the world.
Is Chios® Also Available in Book Form?
Yes, it is. The new Chios book, "Chios Energy Healing: Powerful New Techniques to Heal the Human Energy Field" is available on Amazon.com. The book includes all the information on this website, but also much more that cannot be included here due to space and formatting requirements. Step-by-step complete instructions for all 62 Chios techniques, a comprehensive series of illustrations completely illustrating the Chios techniques, additional important instructional material on the Chios Master techniques, a large volume of additional information on treatment of serious illness, and much more useful information for the student is all included in the book. If you are a serious student of energy healing, or are considering becoming certified in Chios Energy Healing, you may want to consider purchasing the book (which is available at a very reasonable price and is a truly comprehensive resource on energy healing work).
How Was Chios® Energy Healing Developed?
Chios Energy Healing is the product of spiritual guidance and twenty years of research and development. The spiritual contact that was the genesis of Chios provided genuine, accurate healing information from an authentic spiritual source (as opposed to one human being's possibly flawed or distorted sense of inner "guidance," knowledge borne only from the personal experience and interpretation of one person, or even "knowledge" merely the product of imagination). The Chios techniques were then perfected through rigorous evaluation and testing, and careful refinement, over a period of twenty years. You may wish to read the full story of the development of Chios, which is included in the Chios book.
Are Attunements Required to Learn Chios® Energy Healing?No, you do not need any attunements to learn Chios (but they are very beneficial). Chios (like Reiki) offers a series of three healing attunements—the first, second and third attunements—that correspond to and are ideally included at the beginning of your study of each of the three Chios levels. These attunements, which are available either as in-person or distance attunements, initiate a more rapid acquisition of the ability to channel energy, color and light, and practice the Chios techniques. Attunements are given only by Certified Chios Master Teachers who preserve their purity and integrity. Are Chios attunements absolutely necessary to learn energy healing? Of course not—many have learned without them. You can learn, use and enjoy every technique on this website, from the simplest to the most advanced, without any healing attunements. But, the series of three Chios attunements have been made available to assist you in quickly becoming proficient in this work, and many students have found them very beneficial. They include elements (e.g. bringing the spiritual energy up your spine and through all your chakras to open them) that most or all other healing attunements do not. Chios attunements are also required if you wish to obtain certification as a Chios Master Teacher and teach or practice as a healing arts professional.
Are Reiki Attunements Compatible With Chios®?Attunements from other healing arts (e.g. Reiki) are not interchangeable with the Chios attunements and will not activate nor add to your ability to practice the Chios system—it is best to receive the Chios attunements. If you have already had Reiki attunements, however, you need not worry: Reiki attunements, although not the same as Chios attunements, will in no way detract or interfere with them. Chios attunements, should you elect to receive them, will also not interfere with any Reiki attunements you have received. Reiki and Chios are separate healing arts, with separate attunements that do not substitute for each other yet also do not interfere with each other. If you’ve studied Reiki, that will not interfere with your practice of Chios in any way; it is actually ideal preparation (the creator of Chios got his start as a Reiki Master).
What Does the Word "Chios" Mean, How Is It Pronounced and Why Was It Chosen as the Name of This Healing Art?
The word "Chios" (pronounced Cheeˊ ohss) is from the language of the ancient civilization of Bactria. The closest English translation to this word is "life force," although there is a fuller, richer meaning: Chios is the life-welling in all living things, as they strive upwards towards growth and towards the light and enlightenment. This meaning includes the growth of a plant upwards towards the sunlight, for example, or the struggle of a human being in the spiritual growth process, growing upward towards enlightenment. Steve Barrett (the creator of Chios) had a past life in this civilization, during which he studied and used many of the healing techniques Chios now includes (the full story is included in the Chios book). The word "Chios" was chosen, for its beauty and relevance, as the name of this healing art.
May I Translate the Chios® Information Into Other Languages?
The material on this website is copyrighted, and may not be reproduced without permission (either on the Internet or in any other printed or electronic form). The Chios information will be available in book form, however (including foreign language editions), and you may wish to apply to be a translator of the Chios material into your own native language. If you wish to be a translator, and translate the Chios information into book form into your own native language for publication in your own country, please contact Steve Barrett, creator of Chios, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will share in the profits of the translated book: you will receive a royalty (a portion of sales profits) and of course be given credit as translator. The author will retain the copyright.
What Are the Requirements to Become a Chios® Master Teacher?
You must receive the full series of three Chios attunements from a Certified Chios Master Teacher. You must also complete a study of all three Chios course levels and also complete the three study workbooks. Certification as a new Chios Master Teacher requires your teacher's verification (certification) that you have been accurately attuned and have also completed this basic study program, which includes learning the Chios techniques. Note that, unlike many energy healing arts, you do not merely receive attunements to get your certificate, but must complete this study program which requires an investment of time and effort.
Why Are There Course Requirements, Certification and the List of Approved Chios® Master Teachers?
Chios is taught by approved Certified Chios Master Teachers, who give authentic Chios attunements which preserve the exact techniques. Certified Chios Master Teachers also teach the Chios system using the original, authentic Chios information and healing techniques. Attunements and teaching is done according to specific guidelines, which protect the purity of the attunements and of the techniques being taught. These guidelines are for your benefit: to guarantee the accuracy of the attunements you will receive and the information and techniques you will learn. This is to prevent the kinds of abuses which have seriously damaged other healing arts, such as Reiki. The Chios teaching guidelines are posted on the Certification Requirements page. They protect you the student, protect the Chios attunements and information, guarantee the worth of Chios degrees, and enhance the recognition and value of Chios healing and Chios healers, by the healing community and society at large.
