Beware of the Dangers of Reiki

dangers of reiki

Reiki is one of the most popular new-age healing practices in the US. Hundreds of thousands of people participate in reiki circles or individual reiki healings every day. But I’m sure you’re thinking, what are the dangers of reiki, I’m going to get to that but first, let me elucidate what reiki is and its origins.

What Is Reiki?


Reiki, a popular U.S. alternative healing practice, dates back to the teachings of Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 1920s. Usui was a lifelong spiritual aspirant, a lay monk with a wife and two children. In Usui’s time, various lineages of Buddhist, Taoist, and Shinto practices coexisted as the dominant themes in Japanese spirituality and culture. Usui’s intense spiritual practices culminated in a profound revelation that led to the practice now commonly called Reiki.

What exactly is it?

The term “reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Some practitioners describe reiki as acupuncture without the needles.

Reiki is a healing modality where practitioners place their hands on or just above different areas of the body and channel universal qi into the body of the recipient. The practice is based on the Eastern belief that all living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality. and that physical disease is caused by a lack of or block of qi within the energy body belief

Energy blocks impede the innate flow of energy, causing not only health problems but also negative life circumstances like financial troubles and relationship problems. Energy blocks of any living being can be treated, which is why some practitioners also work on animals and plants. Reiki practitioners focus on sensing energy blocks and moving the energy for the greatest good of the client.

It takes about 2 to 3 years to become a Reiki Master in Japan. But in America, you only need to take 3 classes, and each class is about a few hours long. So in reality, in America, you can become a Reiki master in 3 days, wrap your head around that.

What are Reiki Symbols?

Usui Reiki symbols are sacred and are to be kept confidential. They are only revealed to those who are about to be initiated into the Second or Third degree of Reiki. The reason for this is explained later in this article. However, it is possible to discuss their nature, how they work and their history while we continue to honor this trust.

There are a total of four symbols in the Usui system of Reiki, but many other symbols in other Reiki systems. Reiki symbols are an important and very interesting part of Reiki practice, the symbols are used as a tool for the Reiki healer to focus healing energy for a specific situation or in a specific area on the body.

What is a Reiki Circle?

A Reiki Circle is typically a small group of healers who gather, either to practice reiki healing on a group of people or to concentrate and direct a group’s healing energy toward a particular person or distance healing.

In today’s world, reiki circles are being increasingly performed over zoom calls.

Why is Reiki Dangerous?

I don’t think any parent in their right mind would leave their kid alone with a Catholic priest, or in any kind of Catholic children’s activities supervised by Catholic priests. I don’t think I need to elaborate as to why. But just like how pedophiles invade local dioceses, to have access to young boys, likewise, energy vampires become Reiki healers or Reiki patients to suck the life out of people.

Most Reiki practitioners I’ve encounters look thin and sickly.

Many of these practitioners are empaths, which makes their auras more open and susceptible to energy vampire psychic attacks. But unfortunately, these practitioners are totally unaware and do not even notice their increasingly deteriorating appearance and health.

Some of these Reiki practitioners are the energy vampires themselves, and they feast on their clients’ auric energy.

What is also very dangerous is many of these Reiki healers are sick themselves with varying conditions. If you open your aura to their energy, you are allowing the etheric element of their ailment to enter into your aura, and in turn, you can or will develop their disease. It’s really no different than picking up an STD from sleeping with someone.

Most Reiki practitioners think that if they swipe a selenite wand over their body, somehow they cleansed themselves of the diseased or bad energy of their clients. Selenite has its place, but unless they cleanse themselves with a powerful herbal spiritual bath or smudging with sacred empowered herbs, they are just spreading the diseased energy from one client to another.

In turn, you have many patients who are energy vampires and will suck the life out of Reiki practitioners. These energy vampires especially love to go to Reiki healing circles so they can simultaneously suck the life out of groups of energetically open and connected people. They also frequent group meditations.

If you find yourself feeling weak, tired, having headaches, or your medical or chronic condition getting worse after having gone to a Reiki session, you can be very well sure you’ve been victim to a vampire attack, and/or the recipient of someone else’s diseased energy that has no lodged into your aura.

When you’re legitimately working with reiki, you’re working with Spirit. There’s no reiki without the guidance of Spirit. I’m not sure that every person is guided by Spirit (even if they want to be), so I agree with you.

Have you read (or know about) the Ringing Cedars of Russia book series? It doesn’t have all the answers, but it is a big piece of the puzzle of Source/The Light/Spirit. I highly recommend reading these books. There are 9. When I read the first I couldn’t stop until I read them all.

No I’ve never heard of it I’ll look it up

The books are translated from Russian. It’s important to read the translator’s introduction and the footnotes throughout the series. I hope you get a chance to read them. I got them from my library.

I could not agree more , I went to become a Reiki counselor and I could feel the evil behind it. I never returned and I am glad that I listened to my guardian angles that got me out of that mess.
It was a pleasure meeting you today at the vit shop.
