Topic: The Dangers of Reiki
I would like to thank Lipstick Mystic for sharing the negative side of Reiki in these articles on her site:
I was never interested in Reiki because I had my own natural healing abilities, but about six years ago I took my friend's Reiki class mainly because I respected and admired her very much, and I was curious about the class itself.
Within hours after recieving the Reiki attunement, I had what looked and felt like a thick cord or cable under my skin on my left side between my ribs and hips that was incredibly painful. I had never had any problem there or anything like it. It was obviously a negative reaction to the Reiki. It took me weeks to heal it with my own healing work, and it was so excruciatingly painful during that time, I could barely move.
At the time everyone insisted that Reiki could do no harm, and so I just chalked it up to it being just another wierd thing about me and totally bought into the belief that Reiki could do no harm, basically forgetting about it. Over the years, I didn't do Reiki sessions with people because I knew my work was much more powerful, but it still never really occured to me that Reiki could be harmful for other people. That is something I have never read or heard a Reiki practitioner admit.
Recently, a friend of mine was having serious health problems. I did my own work on him, and he had what was called a miraculous improvement, but shortly after that, he started asking me to do Reiki on him. (He had read about it online and was convinced it would be helpful.) So instead of doing my normal healing work on him, I kept specifically doing Reiki instead, and he kept getting worse. At the time, I couldn't understand it because I've never had a problem healing something in the past when I've done it my own way. But with all the Reiki brainwashing, it never occured to me that Reiki could be causing or worsening the problem.
So, after weeks of sending him the Reiki he requested, he ended up having to have his spleen removed a couple weeks ago. The surgeon said that the fascia was so thick and hard and twisted around the blood vessels and spleen that it took a very long time to cut through it. He said he had never seen anything like it.
Then, last week when I read the articles linked above, it all made sense to me. I think my friend had the same reaction I had to the Reiki. It was even in the exact same area. Weird, huh? I'm lucky I didn't go to an MD at that time... they probably would have tried to cut it out or worse.
As you can imagine, I feel bad about my friend. Though I suppose I should accept it as Divine Will. If it wasn't meant to happen, my medically-minded friend would not have kept asking specifically for Reiki, or I would have received the message sooner, intuitively or otherwise.
