First (Reiki) Healer Employed by the NHS














What is Reiki?


First a Word from God Himself about occultism and occult practices.

"When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do." (Deut 18:9-14)

What is Reiki?
Simply put, is just another old form of occultism that has be 're-discovered' today and repackaged for the gullible masses.

The definition from the Alternative Health Dictionary on Reiki states:
"Reiki (ray-key) (reiki healing, Reiki system, reiki therapy, Usui method of Natural Healing, Usui Reiki, Usui shiki ryoho, Usui shiko ryoho, Usui shiko ryoho system of healing, Usui System, Usui System of Natural Healing; formerly called leiki): A form of chakra healing and a variation of the laying on of hands. It encompasses Reiki I and a form of distant healing (absent healing). Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered Reiki in the late 1800s, in Japan. Reiki therapists channel reiki, universal life energy power, through their bodies for storage in the solar plexus, and into dis-eased individuals for rebalancing....Reiki works simultaneously on emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual levels and does not have any limitations....The Reiki system's principle is that activated Sacred Universal Symbols evoke healing energies. The word reiki combines two Japanese expressions: rei, which means spirit or soul, and ki (energy, life force)."


And also a definition from the Wiccan Pagan Dictionary on REIKI states:
"REIKI - a Japanese art of hands - on/hands off healing energy. Rei meaning universal & Ki meaning life force or energy. it can only be transfered to the student by the reiki Master."

----

The 'universal energies' as mentioned above are just buzz words for 'occult power'. Whether it be Ki (Japanese term), the Star Wars 'Force', Shakti-pat, the Kundalini Serpent Power of Yoga, etc, it all has the same source, Satan. It is all a counterfeit of the Holy Spirit and goes by many names.
Reiki then can be classified as a form of 'energy channeling' which is found in the kingdom of the of the occult arts. Reiki than is prohibited by the God of the Bible (Deuteronomy 18:9-14). The reason for God's prohibition of occultism? God knows that when mankind opens the door to the Prince of darkness, satanic power comes through like a flood. The end result...destroyed human lives.

I saw the news clipping below last night in a store window here in Edinburgh.
The NHS (National Health Service) is now employing people who practice Alternative, or New Age Medicine (Reiki, etc.)

FIRST HEALER TO BE EMPLOYED BY NHS
(NHS stands for the National Health Service here in the United Kingdom)
Source: bbc.co.uk Woman's Hour

In 1995 Angie Buxton-King's son, Sam, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia. Throughout his illness and up until his death three years later, Angie practiced 'healing' on Sam. The benefits of the healing were observed by an intrigued Senior Nurse Stephen Rowley, who later employed Angie as the NHS's first paid healer. Angie Buxton-King talks to Jenni about how her son's death inspired her to extend her healing abilities to others. Stephen Rowley will also be in the studio, discussing what prompted him to employ Angie, and the reaction they got from both patients and colleagues... Read Full Article

THE BEACON OF HEALING LIGHT ?
(The following is from the Angie's Buxton-King website, The Beacon of Healing Light)
Source: http://www.angiebuxton-king.com/index.html
"Angie Buxton-King is a pioneer of healing within the N.H.S. She has worked as a healer for the past ten years. A practising Reiki Master / N.F.S.H healer / workshop facilitator, her mission is to make healing available within the N.H.S."

"She has worked as a healer for a leading London hospital for the past five years. Her work has been featured many times on TV and radio and been the subject of numerous articles in the national press and health magazines. Angie has recently completed a book of her experiences, which will be published by Virgin Books in July 2004, entitled The NHS Healer [Angie-Buxton King]."

WARNING...
REIKI IS A FORM OF NEW AGE OCCULTISM

Let's take a closer look at the Angie Buxton-King website, The Beacon of Healing Light. It is very clear that the first NHS paid (Reiki) healer is offering more than meets the eye, and for children too. These are healing therapies...? ...and for children too?

Reiki, Meditations on Living with Angels, Group Astral Travel, Past Lives, Distant Healing, etc.

http://www.angiebuxton-king.com/html/publications.html
or http://www.angiebuxton-king.com
Angie Buxton-King has also written a new book called The NHS Healer published by Virgin Books. Angie Buxton-King also promotes Reiki workshops and Meditation workshops. Angie Buxton also does 'healing work' on animals and children; and she does her work in hospitals too. Her website The Beacon of Healing Light also explains Angie Buxton-King's Hospital and Private work.
Woman and Home magazine says of her new book, The NHS Healer, "This simply cannot fail to move even the most sceptical reader."
IT MUST BE NOTED HERE THAT REIKI "WORKS"...[well...so they say]
Reiki does "work" [and incurs hazards too] and most people are enamored with it because it produces some results. But at what cost? New Age techniques and occult arts "work" because they draw on "occult" power. Along with this one must remember that Pragmatism's Cry has always been, "If it "works", do it!" The Devil knows it works, and undiscerning humans go for the bait all the time. Sadly this is what has happened here.
IS REIKI SAFE?

Let's take another look at 'healer' Angie Buxton-King who makes a living 'channeling energy' as does Graham King who uses "the power of cosmic energy.

REMEMBER WHAT THIS REALLY IS:

Annie Buxton's Reiki (channeling energy), is a form of New Age alternative medicine. WE GIVE THE FOLLOWING WARNING REGARDING THE REIKI PRACTICES AT THE BEACON OF HEALING LIGHT: "Angie Buxton-King is a pioneer of healing within the N.H.S. She has worked as a healer for the past ten years. A practising Reiki Master / N.F.S.H healer / workshop facilitator, her mission is to make healing available within the N.H.S."

WARNINGS ABOUT NEW AGE MEDICINE!

According to the
by Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon
(Harvest House, Eugene, OR, 1996, p. 477-508)

New Age Medicine - Description.
"New Age medicine is the "health" branch of the New Age Movement that involves the application of generally Eastern/occult methods to healing while stressing treatment of the whole Person—body, mind, and Spirit The term is frequently used interchangeably with "holistic medicine," although the two are not necessarily equivalent. The term "alternative medicine" is also used interchangeably, but it may or may not include New Age approaches; for example, it may involve novel methods or new approaches to standard treatments which are not fully tested or demonstrated."

New Age Medicine - Founder.
"None per se. The term "holistic" (from the Greek holos, meaning "whole" or "entire") was apparently first coined by South African prime minister Jan Smuts in his 1926 book Holism and Evolution, a philosophical work not connected to medicine. Today, the term "holistic" is applied to many different fields, e.g., holistic psychology, but usually in connection with a spiritual or cosmic perspective."

New Age Medicine - How does this claim to work?
"Proponents claim that relioance on allegedly "natural" and "spiritual" methods of healing offer medical care superior to that of modern orthodox medicine. Recourse is often made to various concepts about so-called invisible "life energies" as the reason it "works."

New Age Medicine - Scientific Evaluation.
"New Age Medicine has been "discredited, despite numerours and vocal claims to the contrary."

New Age Medicine - Examples of Occult Potential.
"Altered states of consciousness, psychic healing, channeling, divination, shamanism, and many additional forms of occult practice."

New Age Medicine - Major Problem.
"Leading people into ineffective, dangerous, or occult practices and philosophies in the name of healing and health."
New Age Medicine - Biblical/Christian Evaluation.
"Due to its generally fraudulent or occult nature, the entire realm of New Age medicine, with few exceptions, is biblically or ethically prohibited. On the other hand, a truly Christian holistic medicine is possible where a scientific medical basis is maintained and emotional or spiritual problems that may affect physical health are dealt with on the basis of biblical presuppositions and teachings."

New Age Medicine - Potential Dangers.
"False diagnosis and treatment; worsening of a physical condition or death; fraud; occult hazards: physical, psychological, spiritual harm.

WE GIVE THE FOLLOWING WARNING REGARDING THE REIKI PRACTICES AT THE BEACON OF HEALING LIGHT: "Angie Buxton-King is a pioneer of healing within the N.H.S. She has worked as a healer for the past ten years. A practising Reiki Master / N.F.S.H healer / workshop facilitator, her mission is to make healing available within the N.H.S."

"Note: Much of this is excerpted with updated material from Can You Trust Your Doctor?: New Age Medicine and Its Threat to Your Family (Brentwood, TN: Wolgemuth & Hyatt, 1990) by John Ankerberg and John Weldon

The comprehensive New Age Health Listing in the Appendix offers a categorized evaluation of some 700 alternative/New Age practices."

And lastly, quoting Medical writer Kurt Butler ("A Consumer's Guide to Alternative Medicine,'" Buffalo, NY: Prometheus, 1990.),

"Practicing medicine is serious business because it has a major impact on people's quality of life, and, at times, deals directly with life or death."

And to recap what we looked at first,

God's Warning against occultism from Deuteronomy 18:9-14
"When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do."
