In another question and answer session, freely available on the internet, held by Michelle Cherniy (formerly Michelle Osbrink) about her Wiccan beliefs, she gives her thoughts on her religion and others. Her comments on Buddhism in particular include emphasizing her “whole-heartedly” agreement with items “2. Suffering arises from attachment to desires” and “3. Suffering ceases when attachment to desire ceases.” Then upon discovering the teaching of “Reiki” a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, Michelle pursues it and receives a Reiki 1st Degree Attunement and becomes a disciple. By lying and attacking her father who helped her for the past ten years, Michelle Cherniy negates all these principles.
What’s more, in all of the discussions about her poverty experience and how good she is at “manipulating energy” and saying her calling was to be a healer. Not once did Michelle Cherniy mention anything about her sexual assault or that she was suffering from it. Was this all bravado than genuine substance? It must’ve been!
