LTRP Note: The following letter to the editor is written by a Christian man who became involved with Reiki (a form of energy healing). As Lighthouse Trails has been warning for many years, Reiki is dangerous; and yet, many Christians (not to mention the countless number of non-Christians) are participating in it, often/usually ignorant of its occultic roots. Below this letter we have posted a talk given by LT author Ray Yungen in 2014 when he was in the UK. Also read his booklet on energy healing by clicking here.
Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I am writing to help support your warning and exhorting of Reiki as a “healing modality.” My wife and I got “Attuned” approx. ten years ago to Level One. I remember feeling a certain buzz and got curious enough to document this feeling of energy that I had. So I went to get an Aura Picture done. The shop owner described the white spots on my shoulders was an Angel Guide that was honoring me into the art of Reiki. I fell for her evaluation and progressed through the next two levels and attained Master/Teacher. My wife and I practiced for ten plus years and bought crystals, Chakra stones, made energy grids, etc. We bought a table for clients also. All total this was about $700.00 worth of Reiki related stuff.
We were listening to a series of Sermons on the occult, and we felt convicted to look into the issue further. I Googled “Is Reiki evil or occult ?” and was shocked further. We both tried to find supporting Scripture and thought there was some in the Bible we could apply. Everyone is guilty of picking a verse or two that sounds good and saying that validates their certain activity or belief at the time. We were guilty of this.
Once we discovered what the reality of what we were doing really was, we gathered everything together and made a deposit in our dumpster. It was a clean break without regret. We renounced any and all things Reiki at once and have since been on a path of repentance.
I say all this, to our shame, that we were so deceived in the name of healing others. My purpose in writing is to help others understand that there are many attempts from Satan trying to lead us astray. The sad fact is that occult can be anything that promises you power or fame or fortune and connects you to the Unseen World.
In closing, I would like to say the shop owner was correct about there being an Angel behind me.The Angel of Darkness.
