Here are some true testimonials about my book and my work as a healing practitioner.
“Awakening the Awareness Within” is only a small book so can be easily carried with you in your handbag, which could be a good idea. There are snippets of wisdom that you can remind yourself of while going about everyday things, or whilst waiting for a bus or train. The book is set out for easy reading and contains a Resources section at the back where you can find answers to many questions, the main one being, “Are YOU who you truly are?” This is just the little book to help you find the ‘real’ you and to concentrate on ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’”.

“I really enjoyed this pocket-size book. On first opening it I thought it was just another ‘awareness’ book but what made it work for me was that I could relate to it it made sense, and I could see how I could apply the points made to my daily life. This book talks to you”
Catherine Mercer The Art of Healing Magazine
“I felt that my Guardian Angel guided me to first open your book on an auspicious day - New Years day. A friend had given me a copy as a gift on the 24th of December 2005, but I never got around to opening it until after lunch on the 1st of January 2006. I could not put it down! Once I'd started reading, I finally identified all the feelings/vibes I’d been receiving.
Having lost my Beloved Mum in October (amongst other traumatic things), I’d been searching for answers and felt that I was meant to start reading ‘Awakening the Awareness Within’ on New Year's day a new beginning! Ever since I lost Mum, I’d always talk to her and ask her for guidance. I felt she was always with me. Whenever I wanted an answer about how to deal with "stuff”, I’d ask for her help and I would see the most gorgeous butterflies.
Whenever I was sad a butterfly would appear, as if Mum was re-assuring me she was in a better place and not suffering. I also feel a sense of peace and tranquility and know that my Angels and Mum are always there. So reading your book reassured me that I wasn’t imagining things. I’ve also had two doves build their nests close to the house, and I interpret this as my Mum reassuring me that I am still her child. We've never had birds build their nests within touching distance.
There are so many little miracles that I’ve experienced, and your book has encouraged me to be more spiritual and believe, even though logic (or a little demon) sometimes disagrees! I read something from your book everyday and find something new each time Thank you Chiara!”

“I've been listening to Chiara Tino’s Meditation CD for 2 weeks now and I absolutely love it. I was always to scared to meditate so I bought the CD to help me over come my fears of the unknown. Since I have started to use it I have noticed such a happy, peaceful existence in side of me that no words can describe.
I don't get upset easily any more and I seem to be able to let the anger and the hurt go and turn it into a positive.
My all time favourite on Chiara’s CD, although I do love them all, is the Water Fall Sanctuary meditation. I love this one in particular because I have experienced my most inner peace and have seen my spirit guides with me in this meditation, all my questions I had where answered in this Water Fall Meditation and my life has never been the same again. I am full of peace, love and have really truly connected with my spiritual soul.
I feel free and lifted.
Thank you Chiara, you have truly helped me find true inner peace, and I love you for that”.

“I started seeing Chiara at a very low point in my life. I had been working in the same profession for over twenty years, increasingly feeling the need to devote my time to work which contributed positively to the planet but couldn't see what that might be. I had actually written a book about how to do some of these things but was having trouble implementing them in my own life! I felt unhappy and, in a number of ways, had created terrible chaos in my life. I wanted to change but couldn't see how. After the first session with Chiara somehow I felt lighter and more peaceful. Her words of encouragement, insight, and wisdom started me on the path to recovery and greatly helped me take the next step in my journey. I had several more sessions with Chiara, which also helped enormously. Life has now come together in an amazing way. I have moved to a farmlet in the country and do just a small amount of my old professional work. I have completed a Permaculture Design Course (PDC), joined two local Permaculture Groups and authored a book about edible weeds and garden plants which is selling well. My relationships with my partner, my daughter, family and friends are now peaceful and wonderful. I feel connected spiritually and doing things which contribute to a better world. I would highly recommend Chiara to anyone. Her combination of Reiki work and counselling is so powerful and can contribute to making a profound difference in your life”.
D. Pozzi Melbourne, author - ‘Edible Weeds and Garden Plants of Melbourne.’
“I began seeing Chiara in 2006 when I was a stay-at-home mum, newly back in Australia after 6 years in England and suffering from post-natal depression.
My confidence was at an all time-low and I could not see a way out of the dark hole I suddenly found myself in.
Chiara's remarkable gift of insight, her gentle encouragement and wisdom and her powerful abilities as an Energy healer and Reiki practitioner helped me on the path of transforming my life. She encouraged me to explore my long neglected creativity and within months, I had fulfilled a life-long dream of becoming a professional
photographer and now head up a successful small business. I felt lighter each time I met with Chiara.
She gave me the tools to bring the joy and freedom back into my day to day life and just a few short months after I began seeing her, I was no longer depressed. I had made many wonderful new friends and had begun to rediscover the happy mother, wife and person that I had been. I will always be grateful for being led to Chiara at the perfect time in my life and hope other's will be as fortunate”.

Awakening the Awareness Within” is one of the most challenging books I’ve ever read. The ‘signs’ that I used to get a glimpse of now seem so much more REAL. I never really trusted that I was interpreting them correctly, and most of the time I thought ‘No, that can’t be right!!’ But with Chiara’s skill, wisdom and ‘easy to read’ way of writing, I find myself thrown by how precise the answers are to my questions. At times I need to put the book down for days at a time so that I can process what I read, and I am amazed at how rapidly the signs and promptings appear.
This book is a MUST READ, and perfect for those of us who are relatively new to spiritual communication.

Chiara, just a note regarding your little gem of a book. I'm generally a speed-reader, and when I get a book that I can't wait to read I just want to read it straight away. I knew your book would be an easy read and yes, I started and finished it last night purely because I can relate to what you talk about. I'm not an introductory student so I didn't need to read and learn it, so to speak. I could just enjoy every moment and word and get to know you better. I absolutely love how you write and express yourself, so clear and easy to follow and understand. Everything was just simply flowing and each section so beautifully connected to the next. You also had me captured from the beginning, which I feel is so important and you kept me interested. Your information and story telling and the way you presented it came across like an incredible sweet dance or fragrance, as well as a wonderful piece of music that was so soothing to the ears. You not only awaken us to the awareness within, but I feel you awaken our senses as well!
Annie Morison Melbourne, Australia
Chiara, I just finished reading your book. Congratulations! It is very reassuring and reaffirming. I'm sure it will give people the sense of peace and gratitude that you intend. I'll certainly be asking for and appreciating more signs. It all feels more real and connected after reading your book.

This enchanting little book has led me into a wonderland of insights and wisdom, with the assurance - we are not alone. Recently during a particularly stressful time in my life when I was faced with a difficult emotional decision, a car suddenly out of nowhere pulled up in front of me with the registration plates 'OWL'. Although I laughed at the improbability of this incident, I nevertheless chose to act like a wise old owl and remain silent ... it proved to be the perfect answer! This new awareness opens many possibilities, and with observance promises to tweak your latent ‘all-knowing’ intelligence.

"I had suffered with back pain from a degenerative disorder, which emanated from my spine after having a disc surgically removed. I had X-rays taken and nothing untoward showed up in my hips, although I would go to bed in pain, wake in the night in pain and have pain all day. It was considered there was nothing that could be done to alleviate it, so I just put up with it. I am talking about in excess of twenty years. I was taking part in a Psychic Seminar and was told that I should ‘do’ Reiki to help my Rottweiller with her intense fear of thunderstorms. I had no idea what Reiki was!
A few weeks after, Chiara came to our Rotary Club meeting as a guest speaker and talked about Reiki I was so impressed with her presentation, that I booked an appointment with Chiara to see if anything would come out of it in regard to my back pain. At this time, I had nothing to lose anyway!
About four or five days after I saw Chiara and had my treatment, I realized that I hadn’t woken up in pain in the night. I was truly amazed and could hardly believe it. Pain free for the first time in over twenty years and still to this day.
Subsequently I have undertaken Reiki 1, 2 and the ‘Master’ Course.
I absolutely adore my Reiki work, helping people both physically and emotionally and it is intensely gratifying to see how it works with my friends, family and people I meet.
I believe we don’t meet people by accident in our lives and I truly bless the day I met Chiara, as she opened my eyes to the possibility of such a wonderful experience".
