Is the new motto of the Catholic Church 'ticking people off, one group at a time'?


Reiki *does not* purport be an exclusive methodology of healing. Um, Bishops, notice hospitals offer it *in conjunction with* the medical services provided patients?


It isn't meant to be

Good grief! Well, if they want to spew, let 'em spew. I thank the Goddess for the Reiki practioner within our small Circle/Coven. Not to mention my T'ai Chi Chih practice, which I have renewed as I have returned from the hospital and open heart surgery. Not to forget the healing meditation modaliity of Visualization. Or Prayer. Or something similar, that is a form of prayer, healing spell work, as well. Thanks, but I have no patience with fear mongering and a return to the dark ages. :(

Oh for *&^*'s sake. Honestly. There aren't people starving in the world? People without homes? People lonely and in need of companionship?

THIS is what they're worrying about? Good grief.

Combining this with the other thread on the Pope's recent antics, and this begins to look like they are getting rather aggressive about going after other beliefs.


And that brings back memories of my early hears, comments about Protestants having no souls - you can see it in their eyes, don't you know? That is but one example of the nuttiness that sprouts from intransigent belief.


We see it here of course, the belief that my way or our way is the only route to some universal spiritual truth. I hope the world is starting to see through all such claims.

Hi, ya! ;) Just got home yesterday afternoon. Guess they figured I was wandering around the halls, doing t'ai chi chih in my room, was one of the first to wake in Cardiac ICU, that maybe they could finally send me home after a week. LOL! :D They repaired some major damage, but felt I had strong potential to come back from it, too! :) I am taking it slow, soaking up all the healing & loving energy here at home. ;)) It's SO good to be home! :D

Another piece of stupidity from the Catholic church.


There is no reason why Reiki can't be compatible with any belief system held by the practitioner. I personally know a woman who prays to Jesus as she draws the energy and considers it to come from Him.
