Okay i am stupid but i have no idea what Reiki is could someone explain?
Reiki is the japanese word for universal life energy. In the Usui system of Natural Healing,a person attending a Reiki course recieves what is called attunements that help open them up to recieve more of this energy through the laying on of hands.I have personally experienced Reiki and decided to be attuned myself,i am a 2nd degree student and i use Reiki often with very good results.If you want to know more there are lots of books on the market explaining about it.
I could not find any reference to reiki in WT publications. Dansk introduced the word to me in his posts. WT is suspicious of anything that appears mystic. Some years ago I knew a "sister" who practiced kinesiology . The Wt published an article casting it in a bad light and she lost those customers who were in the org. The article ended thus:-
**w94 12/15 p. 22 A Health Test for You? ***
"What a practitioner does is his responsibility, and it is not our intent to review and pass judgment on each one?s claims or procedures. Even if you feel that some of these practices do involve uncanny power, it is clear that many who tried them did so in all innocence, with no thought of involvement in spiritism. It may have been just a reflection of their desperate desire for good health. Still, some who have been involved in such practices have decided later that any potential physical benefit was not worth the spiritual risk.
Again, each individual must resolve what to do regarding such personal matters. Yet, Christians should remember God?s counsel: "Anyone inexperienced puts faith in every word, but the shrewd one considers his steps." (Proverbs 14:15) That applies to health claims too.
Satan is eager to distract God?s servants from true worship. The Devil would rejoice if he could do so by getting Christians fascinated with other interests. He would be even more delighted if they became fascinated with things that are, or seem to be, uncanny practices that might draw them into spiritism.?1 Peter 5:8.
Though Christians are not under the Mosaic Law, Jehovah God?s attitude toward occult practices has not changed. As noted earlier, God commanded the Israelites that "anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell" was not to be found among them. "Everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah . . . You should prove yourself faultless with Jehovah."?Deuteronomy 18:10-13."
How wise it is, then, for Christians today to keep on "the complete suit of armor from God . . . because we have a wrestling . . . against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places"!?Ephesians 6:11, 12.
