Reiki, the old spiritual practice developed by a Japanese Buddhist is commonly practiced in today’s age focusing mainly by palm healing. The following personal story was sent to me from Italy by friends Chiara and Jodie.
In their quest to seek out spiritual relaxation through Reiki, something uninvited began haunting Chiara. Described as a grey being, with hairless body, grey skin, and big dark eyes, this entity began tormenting Chiara. Pushing her to the edge of a nervous breakdown. The entity would begin haunting Chiara in early 2010 and would last up until last year.
Jodie writes to us and wants everyone to know that there are forces that exist that should be treated with respect and caution. The story that you are about to read is something that Chiara and Jodie never thought could happen.
My friend, Chiara, believes it is important to tell people about it because, although many people do not even take into consideration that this might be possibile, some people may have had similar experiences and we can all become, as my friend says, “more aware and more responsibile for what we do”.
Chiara cannot write in English, that’s the reason why I am writing. We live in northern Italy, in an area called ” Veneto ” which contains “famous” cities such as Venice or Verona or Padua, and as you travel northwards, you can reach the mountains ” Alps ” in a few hours by car, and then Austria and Germany.
At the end of the year 2009 my friend Chiara met a girl of about our age (23 years old), this girl was a very spiritual person, while Chiara and I were more “materialistic”, so to sepak, that is to say, “not very interested in spiritual stuff, faith, supernatural and so on”.
I was born and raised in a family were most people are, or describe themselves as, atheists. So I did not receive any “education in spiritual matters”.
Chiara’s new friend was always talking about ghosts (actually, in Italian we have two words to translate “ghost”: the first word, fantasma (ancient greek origin) relates more to a Halloween costume, somebody going around wrapped into white sheets or something, so it’s sound funny for us to say “I saw a ghost in my room”, it means that somebody wearing a Halloween costume was in the room. The word we use to describe a spiritual entity, not a guy in a costume, is anima, that literally means: soul.
Souls are the spirits of the dead.
In Italy those who “are faithful” are usually Christian (and a few of them are Muslims or Buddhists). Among Christians we have Catholic Christians and Evangelical Christians. Anyway, all Chrstians and all Muslims in my area say that we have a soul, or that we are souls “with a physical body”.When our physical body dies for some reason, that is, when our brain’s cells die, we are clinically dead, and this is what science explains, but many people believe that our spirit, our soul, survives physical death and continues to experience Reality at a different “level” or in a different “dimension”.
Catholic Christians in my area believe that a soul that has lived a honest life shall have peace, whereas the soul belonging to a corrupted, mean, evil person shall be ruined.
They also say that some souls are waiting for our help (= love, prayers, spiritual energy) to reach a level of spiritual awareness and peace.
Chiara has had vivid perceptions (extra sensorial perceptions) ever since she was a little girl, but she did not take them into consideration and no one in her family told her to do so.
When she met that girl I told you, Chiara became more interested in all that stuff, until this girl suggested she tried Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese word which means something like “free energy”. The “ki” element is “universal energy”, perhaps some people call it “chi” or “prana”.
Scientists (physics) do not speak much about this ” ki energy ” and some of them are very skeptical about it as it cannot be measured, maibe they didn’t even try to study the Ki energy of Reiki.
Chiara got Reiki from her girl friend who was a ” Reiki Master ” and could initiate others to Reiki.
During the ” ritual ” of receiving Reiki for the first time, Chiara had a feeling that something strange was going to happen. She says she couldnìt believe her eyes when she saw that somebody else was in the room with her and her girl friend. Chiara says the “person” who entered the room was not a human being.
She saw it / him with her own eyes, she describes him as a “gray being”, like a “gray guy” similar to a human person, hairless, with smooth and gray skin, and big dark eyes.
She says it could be described as “an alien” but it was a spiritual entity, he had no physical body, he was not made of cells, of flesh and bones. Chiara says he was “made of energy”, so he was perhaps made of atomical elements and particles (electrons, neutrons and so forth) but not cellular elements so she has doubts he has a DNA,
As I told you, Chiara is studying medicine so she’s also trying to give herself a scientific explanation based on her studies. She’s sure that the “gray guy” who appeared to her was not a hallucination nor a case of psychosis, which is very different, clinically speaking.
After Reiki, Chiara went back to her house and went to bed. She was not sleeping when she heard a voice calling her by her name, so she opened her eyes and in the dim light of the room she noticed that the “gray guy” was there: he had followed her.
The gray “alien” or “spiritual entity” appeared do Chiara three or four times that week after Reiki.
One afternoon I was in Chiara’s room and we both heard a noise: we turned and saw, literally SAW (with our physical eyes) this gray entity appearing (it must have required a lot of energy to him to do this, to make himself visible) and then he “jumped” on Chiara’s bed, jumped off the bed, reached the open window and jumped again aout the window, into the garden. We looked for him outside the house but were no longer able to perceive him.
I was astonished. I wish I had a camera or something, I would have taken some photos of him !! bu all he did was totally unpredictable for both Chiara and I, and we never tried to ask him to “pose for a photo”.
Every now and then, for more than three years, this entity made himself visible especially to Chiara. However, the real problem with him was that he tried to haunt Chiara, to disturb her, to prevent her from studying, and he tried to “spoil her peace, her concentration in her studies, and even her relationships”.
We call such action: vexation. It’s a bit like “mobbing”, when one tries to disturb or interfere in a negative way with someone else’s important or everyday activities.
Chiara was on the edge of a nervous breakdown and considering medications (psychotrope drugs) when we decided to go see a priest.
Some Christian friends introduced Chiara to this priest who is a normal priest but also an exorcist. We had to travel for an hour or so, by car, to meet him.
He prayed upon Chiara several times and told her to pray in her house and read the Gospel and rely on Jesus’ help, mercy and love.
Chiara, the priest, and some of our friends believed that the “gray guy” who had been appearing and disturbing Chiara for months was a demon.
The priest was quite expert (he has been “working” for more than ten years as an exorcist in the local “diocese- church district). He stated that Chiara was not “possessed” and in fact she never manifested strange, unusual or wholly preternatural reactions to exorcisms. We also had the opportunity to remain inside the small chapel were exorcisms took place and saw demon-possessed people during prayers: some of them did all that stuff one can imagine a serverely possessed person can do: becoming very strong, physically although the person is short and thin, talking fluently in several foreign languages that he/she has never studied, included ancient idioms such as Latin, Greek. Hebrew, Aramaic, Sanskrit, Tagalog, and an unknown language (alien language, demonic mothertongue?). We saw a ten year old girl talking in different languages in a deep, masculine voice during exorcism, giving the priest anwers that a little girl would never be able to give on her own. This case was very creepy to see, but after some months the priest told us the little girl had been set free (delivered) and her demons (they were more than one) had been chased away from her.
So, Chiara was not ” possessed ” but she was nonetheless “haunted” and “disturbed” by that entity that had established a spiritual/ethereal “lien” (binding) with her during Reiki.
The connection between demonic interference and Reiki was clear not only in Chiara’s case but also in many other people’s case who had looked for help after Reiki.
Now, the idea that Reiki is very likely to attract negative entities (or even comes from them, or in one of the “devices” demons use to get in contact with unaware people) is becoming more and more popular.
We actually do not need to get any Reiki, we have all we need within ourselves and do not need to receive anything from outside in that way (also, some Reiki Masters ask for money for actualy selling Reiki, which isn’t positive at all: “you have received freely, so you must freely give”).
We think Reiki, the way it’s sold and done now, is “a big demonic trap”, and a well-organized one. Reikians (people who use Reiki) are usually good people though. Nice, loving people. So it’s not their fault, it’s the evil spirits who are using Reiki to reach people, and even to “possess people” and take control, if possible.
I kindly suggest anybody not to get involved into Reiki, because it can be dangerous in short, middle or long terms.
Chiara says that after exorcism, when she was back home, the demon appeared to her and looked angry, furious, and then worried, weak and hopeless.
One afternoon Chiara felt something, a deep sense of peace and a short “mystical experience”: she saw a peaceful light and a man waking from the Light towards her. She says that the man was quite tall, handsome though not “actor-looking”, and it seemed to her that the Man she saw coming form the Light was Jesus Himself. Chiara said that she could feel an inner peace and love that “do not belong to this material world” as we are unable to feel that peaceful here no matter how happy and good we’re feeling, and that the Love coming from that Man cannot be compared to any other person’s affection, however passionate, on this earth.
Chiara said that the Love she experienced was profound, not “just a feeling”, it was energy, love energy, the strongest and most wonderful she has ever felt. And this love made the gray creature, that demon spirit, go away.
Chiara now lives a normal, ordinary life. She’s a pretty, intelligent, sensitive young woman. And she has decided to have a spiritual life, pray, read the Gospel and rely on Jesus’ Love and Power.
Thank you for reading this – please believe this is real, it happened for real, and Chiara is not the only person to have had this kind of experiences: so many people would have something to tell, although each personal story is unique.
I haven’t taken any photographs (I have a small digital camera) of the Chiara’s former demon, as it was impossible for us to know in advance whether he would appear. Also, we could not take any photo or video during other people’s exorcisms because it is not “legal”, we have to ask for a written permission in order to be able to do that, and many people didn’t give us their permission because they do not want to “be put on You Tube doing the strangest of things” and were everybody (family members, partners, colleagues and so on” can identify them.
We’re not “psychic”, so to speak and cannot help anybody but we can tell people not to become involved into demon-attracting stuff such as Reiki, magic, séances, Ouija games and so on.
And we can suggest to try and follow a “structured spiritual system” (= “religion”) were there are people (e.g. a priest or even common people with a strong faith and rich spiritual life) who can help.
Also, as far as medicine is concerned: unfortunately there are people who have nothing to do with demonic interferences, nor with the dead (souls), but are just mentally ill. Sometimes it’s easy to understand whether a person is mentally insane or truly experiencing supernatural. Sometimes it’s not that easy and there seem to be a mixture of both things. In fact, people who have experienced paranormal phenomena may become mentally disturbed if they already had a vulnerability to that.
Medications, if prescribed, can be taken but under a doctor’s supervision. However, since we know that some doctors (psychiatrists) sometimes do give too many medications, or they might choose the wrong medications, people should be careful and talk to their doctor if they think medications are not good for them, of the amount they’re taking is excessive (they feel dizzy, sleepy, cannot do a single thing and remaining in bed or look daydreaming all the time).
Hope Chiara’s personal (true) experience can be of some help and comfort.
And please excuse my English spelling or grammar mistakes.
