Reiki Criticisms

Since it seems to be common for people upset with my Amma criticism to immediately attack my association with Reiki, here's where I'm putting all the anti-Reiki comments and my subsequent remarks. Please note, I may be blunt and direct in my rebuttals! Just because I do Reiki doesn't mean I'm not opinionated about it! :-)

The beginning of this thread was started over on the "Amma" blog post and moved here since it got way off-topic. Yes, I can be a very feisty Reiki "Mama Bear" when people try to put down of the most gentle, benign forms of healing on the planet. Is Reiki the only answer? Of course not! But if you come on my website and try to put down what I'm sharing with comments like "Reiki is for beginners" then please don't be surprised if this Reiki Mama Bear responds to protect her Reiki Cubs!

(Just because I'm spiritual doesn't mean I'm a doormat!)

A few points I'd like to share on Reiki in general as a preface to this thread:

Healer, Heal Thyself

I recently met a woman who is as sweet as can be on the outside but is a broiling cauldron of seething resentment and anger on the inside. (Whereas, I'd like to somewhat facetiously say, when I'm ticked off I usually just wear it proudly on my sleeve...a good justification for that quick Aries temper!)

Her emotional blockages show up in the form of over 100 extra pounds on her frame. (And look, I know we have a weightism problem in this country, but the fact is, most people who carry lots of extra weight do so for emotional reasons, and they'd be the first to tell you that.) She's also trying to become a yoga teacher, and is mostly oblivious to the disconnect between the shoddy way she treats her body and what she says she wants to teach others.

She's so obsessed with the idea of finding her soulmate that she has a somewhat frightening suicidal idea that, without this mythological man, she might as well be dead. She's clearly depressed.

Learn Reiki Energy Healing for Free

I found this old Reiki course that was in the public domain and I have posted it on my energy healing website. It is a full course in Reiki energy healing. You will learn all three levels (I, II, and III) plus some additional tools to help you.

Reiki is an excellent way to improve your health and well-being. Even if you do not use it professionally or on others, it is great to use on yourself.

Try the course here:

Reiki Healing Photo

You can receive a free Reiki healing treatment from this photo!

This photo was taken on October 29, 2007 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. At the time the photo was being taken, I projected Reiki energy through my hands towards the camera. The theory is that when a photo is charged with Reiki, you can still feel the healing energy, even at a later time and location.

Does this sound a bit impossible? Try it. Sit in front of the photo. You do not need to look at it. Close your eyes and ask to receive the healing energy from the photo. You may feel a slight pressure on your face, or a warmth, or maybe just a sense of well-being.

Is it real or the power of your mind creating a placebo effect? Who cares? You just got a free healing!
