IF I WIN THE LOTTERY TONIGHT...
Eleanor McKenzie `Reiki' Writer
Saturday 05 September 1998
The environment is important - warm but not too hot. I'd obviously have Reiki therapists, also massage, rebirthing and colour therapy. I'd call in a feng shui expert to create the right atmosphere. Light, air and colour are the most important qualities.
I'd also like to set up a centre, perhaps in an inner city, where complementary therapy and treatment are more affordable. Lottery money could also be used to set up a central information centre and a university foundation to fund research into Reiki and complementary therapy and help medical students study them.
And my friends: I would give them trips on Concorde or round-the-world tickets. I've always wanted to fly on Concorde to New York. I'd also go to Japan, because that's the birthplace of Reiki, for at least three months.
My day job is to work as a writer so winning the lottery would enable me to write whatever I wanted. At the moment I just write health-related material.
I'd live at the therapy centre, but when in London, I'd like to live in Little Venice in a house in a Georgian terrace overlooking the canal.
I would probably carry on playing the lottery. I play occasionally at the moment. I've tried everything, including using a pendulum, to try to predict the numbers. My favourite numbers are my birthday and my son's birthday. You're not supposed to use a pendulum to try to predict the numbers. You ask the pendulum which numbers will come up next week by holding the pendulum over the lottery card and going through each of the numbers in turn. I've given up doing this as I've realised that it doesn't work at all.
