A short little narrative about alternative Healing.
“a friend of mine who is an acupuncturist shared with me the effectiveness of distance healing. He told me of an acupuncturist friend of his who does acupuncture therapies with his clients over the phone!
This practitioner has a doll with all the meridian points on it. He will have the client on the other end of the line and will then gently insert the needles into the appropriate meridian points according to their presenting symptoms and treatment protocol. His clients report feeling tingling sensations in the areas where he is placing the needles and also report a reduction of symptoms!
What is happening here is that by the power of the practitioner intending to affect an area on the remote subject, the intended effect is received by the willing and participating client. So this type of distance work “works” for many types of alternative healing modalities. It’s about the power of intention, the belief of the healer, and the receptivity of the receiver. And it works.”
Okay, voo-doo acupuncturist, But it must be noted also that this is very similar to the grossly misinterpreted depictions of African voodoo we were exposed to when young. Surely theres more to it than the western depiction of it… I mean dolls and needles were always the stuff of torture by some God forsaken usually indeginious, usually possessed cast out with evil / mischievous intent… And they were usually black.
saying the word Voodoo anywhere in the world is tied to darkness and evil. It is a byword for bad religion. Ironically, it was the enforced immigration of enslaved African from different ethnic groups that provided the circumstances for the development of Voodoo. European colonists thought that by desolating the ethnic groups, these could not come together as a community. However, in the misery of slavery, the transplanted Africans found in their faith a common thread. They began to invoke not only their own Gods, but to practice rites other than their own.
In this process, they co-mingled and modified rituals of various ethnic groups. The result of such fusion was that the different religious groups integrated their beliefs, thereby creating a new religion: Voodoo. The word “voodoo” comes from the West African word “vodun,” meaning spirit. This Afro-Caribbean religion mixed practices from many African ethnics groups such as the Fon, the Nago, the Ibos, Dahomeans, Congos , Senegalese, Haussars, Caplaous, Mondungues, Mandinge, Angolese, Libyans, Ethiopians, and the Malgaches.
In the south African townships, black people who had never used any western doctrine to prove their logic, always knew hair and nails and body fluids to contain DNA. Caution was always advised when dealing with others hair or nails, secretions and the proper discarding of such as it could metaphysically lead back to the owner if the traces of DNA ended up in hands of ill-intentioned knowers of secrets. In the commonly used barbershop, We had skillfully carry out our hair in our hands and discard of it safely at home usually by flushing.
In all practice of the impure/ evil, it Is said consent must be given (consciously or unconsciously) by the recipient of the intended magic… This may be through DNA or consent with the mouth… Sometimes this may lead to trickery, By convincing the senses of the recipient of intended harm, that harm Is on its way… The body believes and belief is DNA activation. (very long story made short)
But here is an acupuncturist using the very science that governs voodoo to heal and further instigate good. And not in the way popular media has portrayed “voodoo” over time… All things are Good can be used for good as well as manipulated into the undesirable/evil.
Here is a possible expaliantion of how evil manifests itself. This from a compilation of Gnostic scriptures.
On the cause of Evil…
If everything that is has a beginning, and God creates only good, as the first great cause of all that Is, all the 7 Elohim and their creations are goods, then where/ who is the God who created all the evil?
All created things have colours, tones and forms of their own…but certain tones, though good and pure themselves, when mixed they produce inharmonies and discordant tones.
And certain things, though good and pure, when mixed produce discordant manifestations, poisonous things, generally things regarded BY MANKIND as evil.
So evil is the inharmoniius blending of the colours, tones or forms of good. But man is not all-wise but has been granted a will of his own… He has the power and he uses it to mix God’s good things in a multitude of ways and so everyday he creates discordant sounds / tones thus evil things
Every tone or form, be it of good or I’ll, becomes a living thing, a demon, sprite, or spirit of a good or vicious kind.
Man makes his devil thus, and then becomes afraid of him and flees, his devil is emboldened and follows him and casts him into Torturing fires.
Both the devil and burning fires are works of man… And none can put out the fire or dissipate the evil one, except man who made them both.
The inborn powers awake.
