Does the Bible say anything about Reiki or any spiritual/mantras/aura healing teqnique?

Thank you!


  1. I knew a nun who practiced it, one of the weirdest people I’ve ever met.
    WASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 1, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Reiki, a Japanese alternative medicine, lacks scientific credibility and is outside Christian faith, making it unacceptable for Catholic health care institutions, the U.S. bishops’ conference stated.
    On Saturday, the conference issued the “Guidelines for Evaluating Reiki as an Alternative Therapy,” developed by their committee on doctrine, headed by Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Connecticut, and approved by the administrative committee Friday.
    The document notes that “the Church recognizes two kinds of healing: healing by divine grace and healing that utilizes the powers of nature,” which “are not mutually exclusive.”
    Reiki, however, “finds no support either in the findings of natural science or in Christian belief,” it explained.
    The guidelines note that this technique of healing “was invented in Japan in the late 1800s by Mikao Usui, who was studying Buddhist texts.”
    The report continues: “According to Reiki teaching, illness is caused by some kind of disruption or imbalance in one’s ‘life energy.’ A Reiki practitioner effects healing by placing his or her hands in certain positions on the patient’s body in order to facilitate the flow of Reiki, the ‘universal life energy,’ from the Reiki practitioner to the patient.”

  2. Jesus Christ used His hands to heal people. He also performed distance healing.
    Reiki is translated as the “Universal Life Force” and also as “The Love of God”. Reiki is neither anti-Chistianity nor anti-God. In I Corinthians 14:1 Paul tell us to eagerly desire spiritual gifts. In I Corinthians 12: 28 Paul says that healing is one of the gifts.

  3. The Catholic church has not endorsed Reiki. I read their evaluation – it was supposedly based on the lack of scientific evidence about healing capability. But as you read deeper into the report, their principal concern was that they saw Reiki as allowing the individual to control the “life energy force”, which was too close to God for their comfort. Reiki is not a religion, and I think their stance is a stretch myself!
