A cautionary note concerning the dangers
of attempting to send Reiki back into the past
A psychic friend of mine was receiving impressions from the year
1830 from Japan - turned out that an epidemic was wiping out an
entire subspecies of 'dung fly' - and, ever the eco-warrior, and
friend to all scuttely-crawly and other much-maligned insects (including
dung-flies) she asked me if - "being a Reiki Master & stuff"
- I would send some healing vibes back in time to at least ensure
a few of these threatened creatures would survive and perpetuate
much about using the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol to send Reiki to
the past, I decided to try an experiment, and did as she requested
- but still, only one single dung-fly survived the epidemic.
single dung-fly - reinvigourated by the Reiki it had received -
flew off and landed on a piece of uncooked meat which was lying
uncovered in the kitchen of Mikao Usui's Grandfather's house.
The next day,
the meat which was now infected with various strains of unnamed
bacteria, was hurriedly (and improperly) cooked and eaten by Mikao
Usui's Grandfather. A few hours later he began to feel a little
queazy, and decided to cancel his visit to the 'Noh' theatre that
evening, and went to bed with a bottle of saki as he thought this
might help settle his stomach - and even if it didn't, it was a
good excuse to get drunk.
Now, HAD he
gone to the theatre that night he would have met the woman he was
going to marry - the woman who would become Mikao Usui's Grandmother.
But as it turned
out, he never met her - never married at all - never had any children
- devoted his entire life to campaging for food hygiene and wandering
from town to town the length and breath of Japan educating people
to the dangers of leaving uncooked meat where the flies could get
Usui's father was never born, and of course this meant that Mikao
was never born either - and never went on to 'discover' Reiki
- so, when
Hayayo Takata went to Japan, Chujiro Hayashi's Reiki clinic didn't
exist and she had to settle for regular medical treatment
- which was happily very successful, and she returned to Hawaii
to live a full and happy life ( as a Hairdresser).
a fan of Star Trek TNG and other stuff of that ilk, I am well aware
of the problems of the Temporal Paradox, Time Loops and the dreaded
is - thanks to me saving that dung-fly, Reiki doesn't exist - as
you will all discover when the Time Tide catches up with us (any
day now) - but, if Reiki doesn't exist - does it mean that I couldn't
have sent it back in time to save the dung-fly ?
If so, the
dung-fly didn't survive, Mikao's Grandfather wouldn't have gotten
ill, would have met and married Mikao's Grandmother, had children,
Mikao would have been born, discovered Reiki - Takata-Sensei would
have been cured by it and gone on to bring Reiki to the Western
World, where I would learn it, send it back in time to save the
dung-fly and Mikao's Grandfather wouldn't have married........
Please Please Please - for the sake of your sanity - DO NOT SEND
REIKI BACK IN TIME!!
