The Mahikari They Don't Want You To Know

Sad Reminders

This weekend was Memorial Day weekend in the United States, a tribute to the fallen soldiers who served our country. To me, more than anything it is a reminder of how pathological human beings take power and exploit the masses into fighting money making wars based on ignorant ideologies.

It also reminded me that SM'S ideology has possibly contributed to the deaths of people who have refused or been denied medical treatment, and of the people connected to the organization that were not protected while wearing Omitama. I know of one member at my former center who died of cancer despite having Omitama, and from Lara's account at least one child who has passed away. In addition, there are stories in Winston Davis' book dojo of members passing, not to mention the youths in Australia who died in the horrible accident that awakened Garry Greenwood. I haven't had the time to go back and count, but I have been thinking of compiling a list in order to better honor these people at some point. I would really appreciate some input here from all of you.

Furthermore, I hope this post will draw out some more former members and give them the courage to speak up, even if done so anonymously. I am certain there are people who have important stories to relate that will continue to bring out the truth. I hope you will help in honoring those people who were supposedly more connected to God by virtue of SM.

I was one of the founding members of the Mahikari but finally left as did most of my friends. I was already a healer when I joined the organization and they didn't tell me I was going to have to wear a Omitama pendant in order to do healing. If they had, I don't think I would have become a member. When they pinned the Omitama on me during initiation, I was furious but I stayed in because I needed healing and I was enjoying the healing I was giving to others.

Over the next four years, I saw many, many miracles. I do not recall anyone being told not to go to a doctor. But I'm sure every Dojo is different. I know every leader is different - some are much stricter than others, but they all share a very militaristic approach to their members.
Over the time I was a member, I found that I couldn't take the Omitama seriously, I dropped it at least 4 or 5 times. When one drops the precious pendant, they are forced to go through the initiation training again and again. On my last accident, I was asked to leave. I have to admit I was relieved of all the judgments from the leaders and the other members who had bought into the whole program.

Overall, the guilt and judgment that is imposed by the organization and its members along the militaristic rules and regulations ultimately chase people away. They've never been able to grow beyond a hundred or so members.

I observed that their method of removing attaching spirits is very slow and despite the fact that people are in this "spiritual purification" method, they never seem to grow emotionally. People who are alcoholics continue to drink and the self-righteous judgments among the members is rampant.

With the uniforms, all the rules and regulations and the heavy dose of guilt that is preached on a regular basis. Overall the organization is just another self-defeating cult.

Dear Former Sukyo Mahikari Member,

During the 1990’s I lived in Japan and took kenshu level one. During the three day process, I could see with my inner vision the system of cording that occurs as a mechanical process during the initiation. I could see that there are three primary cords that come into the initiate’s root or base chakra, also known as an energy center. One of them goes up and around each chakra or energy center in the front of the body forming a caduceus, the other goes around each chakra or energy center in the back of the body forming another caduceus, the third goes up through one’s divine core in the middle and continues up to wrap around the underside of the crown chakra three times and then down to the root chakra again. When one gives okiyome, the center cord extends outward from the giver’s root chakra to the receiver’s root chakra and taps into their divine core, drawing out divine light, which goes up through the giver’s body and then out of the palm of the hand. At the time, I thought it was quite an ingenious method to redistribute light energy for purification because the inner core of each person is an infinite source of divine light without end.

The main problem after one quits the organization is that this cording system does not leave, and over time the cords become black and send very negative energies into one’s divine core and around the front and back of each chakra, holding the former kumite as prisoner of dark energies, the worst of which in my experience is fear. This fear energy is not generated by the individual, but is coming through the mechanical system of cording. If you wish to return to your true life without being influenced by these hellish energies, you must get these three cords removed. During the last 15 years of seeking assistance to get these cords removed, I have found only one spiritual healer who has the strength and courage to successfully remove them. You can find her at She has agreed to help any and all former members of Mahikari to remove this truly diabolical system of cording. When she removed the last cord this past week and sent it back to its source, she told me that it went into a dark galaxy.

I also recommend that you read People of the Lie by M. Scott Peck, M.D.

Love, blessings, and best wishes to all!

I am new to SM, but have enjoyed the people and time I've shared. I joined soon after my husband died. When I went through the first course my lips swole because of a reaction to medication. My group leader decided that if at any time my throat began to feel strange we would go straight to the emergency room.
As with any group there are symbols that should be respected. Obviously if you don't respect the mission of the group you won't be fulfilled. The omitama is a symbol. This is similar to a rosary for catholics. They use this in prayers, and treat it with respect. You would not find a catholic tossing their rosary around. You'd be careful and respectful.
As with any religion or group, individuals need to think and use common sense. If you feel that the group is not promoting your beliefs or asking you to do anything you find negative, you should separate from the group. I have found nothing but love and kindness from the people I have com in contact with in this organization.
