This review on Amazon.com of Sha's Soul Masters video was approved for posting and then quickly removed. I edited the review and reposted it twice, each time it was removed, even after it received a "like" from a reader. I've now posted it again.
I'm posting it here as well. If just one person sees this post and it keeps them from moving toward Sha and helps keep their family and finances together, then the post has done it's job.
Here's the note I added to the edited version:
"Reviewer's Note: Both the original review and an edited version were approved for posting and then quickly removed. To whomever was responsible for the removal: I write this because I know this video very well and from personal experience with Sha's organization. If you disagree, you have that right, but just remember: you don't have the right to censor another person's experience expressed through free speech, which is the purpose of these reviews, is it not? Does this review being removed twice show that it's saying something that someone doesn't want revealed? If you disagree, you have the right leave your comments just like anyone else.
I am making it clear that these are my observations based on what the video is showing and based on what I know as a former member of Sha's organization. The content is not intended to be spiteful or misleading - just truthful. It comes simply from my personal experience. Thank you."
Here's the original post:
"Sha uses Guo to make himself look credible"
"Let's get something straight from the get go: Most if not all of the 5-star reviews that you see for all of Sha's publications, not only this video, are coming from his followers who are lured into posting them in order to get "gifts" or free "downloads" of the expensive kind that he usually charges hundreds to thousands of dollars for to the general public or newbie followers. ("Downloads" are totally worthless, by the way.) This as well as getting his followers to buy thousands of dollars worth of books/videos is all done to manipulate the best seller list to make it look as if he's a credible healer (besides the percentage of sales that goes into his pocket). Another tactic he uses is to ally himself with well-known people for the same reason. That being said, I have no doubt that Sha had this video produced to convince others that he is credible because he was at one time allied with Master Guo, a highly respected healer in China (Sha was Guo's student, as the video shows). I admit the video is entertaining, but it's charm wears off very quickly when you start paying attention to that "man behind the curtain." Half the video is devoted to Master Guo's healing center and his practices, which Sha has capitalized on as his own and says he has enhanced. The second half of the video shows Sha's "upgrade" of those techniques and how he uses them. That's all supposed to make Sha a credible healer. As a student of Guo, he may have started out on that path, but somewhere along the way Sha took the wrong road - right now he's not trying to help anyone but himself. Alliance with all this credibility is a major way Sha draws in his victims (followers and others). There are also several scenes showing him using his techniques to heal others in front of an audience, including a group from the UN (This is all geared to luring in the public and making "download" sales.) Belief is a powerful tool - in the moment a person in need of healing, in front of Sha, in front of a curious audience, can easily will himself or herself into believing they're healed, even for a time, and believe it's real. But there are no documented cases of Sha's "healings" remaining permanent. True healing by oneself can happen, but it takes a more enlightentened state of mind than just belief. And there are those who have the gift of being able to heal others - in both of these instances there is documented evidence, but not in Sha's case. It's all smoke and mirrors. The only thing he's good at is fooling others and taking their money illegally and immorally. Be extremely careful."
