Watch out for the Reiki Occult practice.

Ray Yungen provides a helpful overview of Reiki and its disturbing practice:
In Reiki, a type of therapeutic touch, it is believed that the ki (chi) energy (a supposed universal energy that flows through all things) can be used to heal people. In the Reiki News article written by Reiki proponent William Lee Rand, Rand expresses a concern about a statement released by US Catholic bishops asking Catholic hospitals not to use Reiki because of its Buddhist roots. Rand tries to show that Reiki is a scientific method that has healing results.
As you examine the practice, certain disturbing practices emerge:
  • Reiki is not scientific at all but rather a spiritual approach.
  • It's necessary for the practitioner to set their own desire, will and ego aside, and allow the Reiki energy to guide itself."
  • "When doing it, I become a channel through which this force, this juice of the universe, comes pouring from my palms into the body of the person I am touching, sometimes lightly, almost imperceptibly, sometimes in famished sucking drafts. I get it even as I'm giving it. It surrounds the two of us, patient and practitioner."1
  • A Reiki attunement is an initiation into a sacred metaphysical order that has been present on earth for thousands of years ... By becoming part of this group, you will also be receiving help from the Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who are also working toward these goals."2
  • "For me, the Reiki guides make themselves the most felt while attunements are being passed. They stand behind me and direct the whole process, and I assume they also do this for every Reiki Master. When I pass attunements, I feel their presence strongly and constantly. Sometimes I can see them."3
Ray Yungen concludes with some helpful observations:,
  • if something is of God it will conform to the very cornerstone of God's plan to show His grace through Christ Jesus and Him alone (Ephesians 2:7). Reiki, as I defined earlier, is based on the occult view of God."
  • "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived." Revelation 18:22-24

I think you may be basing your opinions on very limited information. It is often difficult for us to understand things that are outside of our own experiences, and easy to be fearful of things outside of our comfort zone, but I can tell you as someone who has experience with Reiki that is is nothing to be afraid of. When I practice Reiki, it is letting God-energy flow through me, asking to be a vessel for healing energy -which is love. As someone who has had a relationship with Jesus my entire life, I can tell you that it is the time when I most feel His presence. Reiki is a practice of laying on of hands to heal in love - it could be considered the most closely related practice to what Jesus did...and exactly what he told us to do in following him. The essence of Jesus's teachings was love and faith, which is also the essence of Reiki - it does not preclude Jesus's actions or teachings, but actually demonstrates them.

Love and light to you in your journey.

Don't be afraid of Reiki! Sherri is 100% correct - I mean she knows what she is talking about.
But fear God! For He is able to do what Reiki can't, that is to send you to Hell for all eternity:
Mat 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

i do beleive in enery healing, but only christ healing centered.. amd prayer... satan and his followers can heal as well but they aslo have contracts and not like the lord as covenants. satan and his followers want to enyer the body so they at first will take away the paij but than have ere own agenda. reiki used to be a positive thing but than the occult took over it. also with yoga.. the new yoga ot allows the body be susecpitle. yoga anciently was good and from genuine yogis..but the kudalina comes from the occult. there are seducing spirits. be aware.. not in fear bit aware
