    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Sista Queen ...

    Coming from a church background ... I thought it was the thing to do until I started finding myself sick continuously. The scriptures speak about this:

    1Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

    Here we have a clear indication that you can absorb people energies taking upon their pains, problems and depressions. This is why it say, "neither be partakers of other men's sins". I think it was MetaSaience would spoke about how the 2 hands have two different ways of handling energy.

    One hand absorbs energy and one releases energy. Look at the placements upon ones body that the hands are laid. If they lay the hand that absorbs in the middle of your forehead then they are absorbing the energy of your higher power. If they lay the hand upon your forehead that release energy then they could be putting things within yoru forehead that will cause sickness and depression. You have to be extremely careful lease to take on another persons energy.

    But note: through such transactions there will always be a giver and a receiver.

    If you are highly empathic then I strongly suggest you keep peoples hands off of you ... if it they are kidding and drop their hands upon you. I'm highly empathic and so I rarely let people touch me now. I was talking to this preacher dude one day and he placed his hand upon my thigh ... now natural it was about to be on and poppin because brotha here don't get down with the brown (please forgive my bluntness).

    Anywho, this preacher was always complaining about his leg hurting, so when I got up after he put his hand on my leg and I went home ... when I was driving I started feeling sharp pains in my leg ... and before the day was over I could hardly walk.

    For this reason I say please be careful unless you truly know what type of energy a person holds ... do not allow this to put hands on you like that. This even includes family members at times.

    Peace and Blessings

    @ Sister Destee:

    I practice a technique called Reiki. Which is very close (in my opinion) to the Christian method of "laying on of hands" .


    Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

    @Brother ru2religious:

    "You have to be extremely careful lease to take on another persons energy"

    I've been told something similar by a hindu mystic in regards to Karma. He was showing a group of us how to chant mantra for others and he cautioned us to make the intent clear in order that we didnt absorb or take on the negative karma of the people we were interceding for.

    In Reiki we use certain "grounding techniques" and we are mere conduits for "universal energy", "chi" or like I call it "Ra".


    Ive had to use some biblical quotes to show some Christian buddies of mine that what I was doing wasnt necessarily anything evil.

    Acts 9:17

    17 And Ananias departed, and entered into the house; and laying his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, who appeared unto thee in the way which thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mayest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.



    Deuteronomy 34:9

    "And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom: for Moses had laid his hands upon him ..."


    Peace

    First of all I will answer NO to the question asked. Not any more. But I used to. Until I had an experience which is similar to explanation above.

    I actually studied for the ministry about 13 years ago when attending St Mark's Missionary Baptist Church in South Central Los Angeles. I moved on from there to Vineyard Ministries then Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena. The Pastor is well known in the "Charismatic Movement" and is from South Korea.

    Anyway, I attened a Conference once in which I was given the "Gift of Ministry". During this session after another Pastor did a "reading" on me I had some people lay hands on me. I was wearing an ANKH at the time. Afterwards I was physically drained as if some vampires had brianed my blood. I was sore for about 5 days and couldn't hardly walk. I also had stomach cramps for weeks.

    I went back to a church "revival" one Saturday and there was a Pastor from Canada speaking and another from South America. My daughter attended with me. She was about 10 at the time. I was in a group of folks laying hands and people had broken out in what folks call Holy Laughter. I looked out and noticed a group around my daughter and afterwards she was laid out on her back. I didnt think much about it at the time. Well, I ended up laid out on the floor with some folks and when I got up I just started waving my hand and folks started falling out around me. Some folks in the Ministry didnt take to well to that. I had learned to channel to quickly for them.

    My daughter and I talked about what happened later and it was the last time I took her to church with me. That one at least.

    It is true that people can literally drain and feed off your psychic energy. For this reason I do not engage in any kind of ritual except for communion when I go to church with family except for prayer in a Unity Circle. Even then you have to be careful who you hold hands with.

    Ok I am familiar with Reiki and Energy Healing. However, I think the same applies. One needs a skilled Master to perform this as therapy. Some chiropractors know this Art even they won't tell you this. I had a good one in Texas who had an "anointing". Which is to say he had a special gift in healing. In fact, I could use some good therapy for my back and shoulders right now.

    I have to watch myself around older men that takes a liking to me bc they tend to get close and want to touch my arm. Touch, touch, touch, touch and it feels weird when it happens so I dont like it that much.

    That's quite amazing Bro Omo. In the last church I was ever a member of (not by choice because I was a teen obeying my mother about going to church regularly) the pastor was into the "gifts of the holy spirit" and laying on of hands.

    After two laying on experiences with that church, I decided to never let that crap happen to me ever again.

    I fell out on the floor each time. The experiences left me feeling very hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) and extremely light headed for several days.

    Psi vampirism sucks literally. It's definitely no joke. I was in this same church when at one time when the pastor laid hands on this one teenage girl became almost possessed, head butting a fixture and it broke.

    For such a peaceful, meek Holy Ghost, I've seen those "under the annointing" become quite violent in erratic behavior.
