We recently had a question about a so-called “Psychic Vampire Repellent” being sold on Gwyneth Paltrow’s outlandish Goop site which supposedly contains tiny “Reiki-charged crystals.” As ridiculous as it might sound, there’s a whole cottage industry devoted to distributing “Reiki-infused” products from jewelry to “kid calming mists” that should alarm anyone familiar with this occult-based practice.

She calls them angel cards & is very insistent about wanting to do cards to “help” everyone. This has been the cause of much anxiety for us. I have already said how I feel about this. Is there any more we can say to her to make it clearer?”
CL writes: “I have a question regarding Reiki. I am aware that as Catholics we should avoid Reiki, given that it can involve evil spirits.
