Beware of Reiki.!

I'm gonna post this here because I think it falls into the verses debate in this section.

Now I don't know what Reiki is, my wife tells me it's some alternative healing nonsense made up by a Japanese dude who believed he was Jesus, or something. If anyone is a Reiki afishinado please clarify it that's true.

The following article is quite funny and sad at the same time. It's basically saying my make belief is better than your make belief.

So let me give a basic synopsis of what the article is detailing. A Catholic bishop is setting up an exorcism ministry to combat Reiki. So anyways.

https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/bishop-to-set-up-exorcism-ministry-as-he-warns-of-the-evils-of-reiki-37403224.html

Quote

Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan said he had received "several requests" from people to help deal with evil forces and that one priest in his diocese of Waterford and Lismore is about to start training in the practice of exorcism.

He said he was told by the brother of a reiki master that the man was "working on somebody one day when he actually says he saw a vision of Satan" and was "scared out of his wits, dropped the reiki and went back to the Church".

Funniest thing I've seen in awhile.

I was annoyed how Conor McGregor conducted himself, but this article genuinely makes me feel sad that it's happening in Ireland.

THat's not what traditional Reiki is all about, it is a very old if not ancient practice originating from Japan

Get the right partner and Reiki does add wonders to an already intimate relationship

Reiki was developed in the mid-1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese scholar of religion. According to the story that has been passed down among reiki teachers, Usui was a Christian who was intrigued by the idea that Christ could heal sick people by touching them with his hands. Searching for clues that would explain the secrets of healing with hands, Usui made a long pilgrimage around the world, visiting many ancient religious sects and studying ancient books. Some reiki teachers claim that Usui found clues leading back nearly 10,000 years to healing arts that originated in ancient Tibet. During his intense studies, Usui claimed he had a spiritual experience, which enabled him to heal with his own hands by becoming aware of and tapping into the universal life force. After that, he dedicated his life to helping the sick and poor. His reputation grew as he healed sick people for many years in Kyoto, Japan. Before his death, Usui passed on his healing insights using universal life energy to Dr. Chujiru Hayashi, a close acquaintance. Hayashi, in turn, passed on the healing techniques in 1938 to Hawayo Takata, a Japanese woman from Hawaii, whom he had cured of life-threatening illness using reiki methods. Takata became a firm believer and proponent of reiki, and during the 1970s formed an initiation program for training reiki masters to preserve Usui's teachings. Before she died, she prepared her granddaughter, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, to continue the lineage. Takata had personally trained 21 practitioners before she died at the age of 80 in 1980. Along with other reiki masters authorized by Takata, Furumoto formed the reiki Alliance. A faction led by Barbara Ray, formed the American Reiki Association, which was known as Radiance Technique Association International. Today, there are over 1,000 reiki masters practicing around the world, whose methods can all be traced back directly to Dr. Usui.

Practitioners have reported success in helping patients with acute and chronic illnesses, from asthma and arthritis to trauma and recovery from surgery. Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in some hospitals. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring for those suffering from severe or fatal conditions. Reiki can been used by doctors, nurses, psychologists and other health professionals to bring touch and deeper caring into their healing practices.

Westerns ruining traditional things as always.

Reiki is nothing more than a placebo and a cheap way to make money off people.

Dr Usui is just the modern face'name of the ancient practice, he's kinda the fella that popularized Reiki in recent times. As with all things that works to a certain degree or extent, there will always be many others that regards themselves and ideas to be far more and greater than the rest.

That priestly dude is just thrown into the news for the wrong reasons, he is dealing with just the superficial in the only way his shallow knowledge of Reiki allows as best as he knows how, or maybe as sensationalized as he needs it to be
