Psychics are False Gods

The other day I was speaking to someone who told me they had just gone to a Psychic.  I was very troubled by this.  This person is a very intelligent individual and not prone to falling for this sort of thing.

However, after questioning her further, I realized that it was out of desperation she had done this.  She was so wounded and desperately wanted to speak to the person she loved, who had died a number of years ago.  She could not let her go.  She wanted to know if she was present with her.  People will go to great lengths when they are hurting,  especially if they do not feel the presence of the Lord in their lives.

She told me she could not hear the Lord speak to her or comfort her in this regard so she thought about going to a Psychic for a long time, and finally did.  This Psychic told her things that no one could have known, except the evil one and God.  I asked her how much the Psychic charged and she said $100 an hour.  Ok everyone….God does not charge us to hear what He has to tell us.  Its for free.  The Holy Spirit is a gift from God who wants to console us, strengthen us, counsel us, and guide us.  He never charges a fee for this.

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

In order to really have the Holy spirit with us we must remain in God’s grace. A test for knowing whether or not we have the Holy Spirit is this:

In fact, one can not truly know, love and work for Jesus Christ if they do not know the Holy Spirit! One can believe in Jesus Christ (which as many as one third of the world claim and many of these would also claim they love Jesus), but not truly know and love Him without the Holy Spirit! St. Paul makes this very clear in Acts 19: 1-6: “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed (in Jesus Christ)?” Do we have other evidence of this reality? We do. The Holy Spirit tells us in Sacred Scripture that there is one test, if we want to be certain to know if we love Jesus and Jesus Himself stated it: “If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments.” The vast majority of Catholics do not keep the third Commandment: “Keep Holy the Sabbath,” by worshiping God in Spirit and Truth at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which He instituted as a perpetual memorial of His ultimate Sacrifice for our salvation. It is the Holy Spirit who convicts us we must obey this and all Commandments. Thus, the Holy Spirit is absent (in fact driven out of the soul completely if the sin qualifies as mortal which this sin normally would) and the person can not truly know and love Jesus Christ, because he is not keeping His Commandments.

The Bible strongly condemns spiritism, mediums, the occult, and psychics (Leviticus 20:27; Deuteronomy 18:10-13). Horoscopes, tarot cards, astrology, fortune tellers, palm readings, and séances fall into this category as well. These practices are based on the concept that there are gods, spirits, or deceased loved ones that can give advice and guidance. These “gods” or “spirits” are demons (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). The Bible gives us no reason to believe that deceased loved ones can contact us. (got questions.org)

Thus you are to be holy to Me, for I the LORD am holy; and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine. 27’Now a man or a woman who is a medium or a spiritist shall surely be put to death. They shall be stoned with stones, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.'” (Leviticus 20:26-27)

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do  these things are an abomination unto the Lord:  and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

Acts 16:16-18
Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling.  She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “these men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.  She kept this up for many days.  Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!”  At that moment the spirit left her.

Satan and his demons are providing the information in this regard.    He can come as a angel of light.   satan and his demons will always try to turn someone away from God and has done so since the beginning of time.  They pretend they  care and want to help the person, but only to drag them into a hellish life.    Sometimes even the Psychic is deceived not knowing the true source of the information they receive.  Peter proclaimed, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

Never, ever, ever go to a Psychic.  If you have gone to a Psychic you need to confess this sin because once you go you have now opened the door to satan and his cronies.  They will direct your life, because you have given them permission to do so.  In order to rid yourself of this spirit you must confess this sin by going to God and renouncing satan and all his works.  Ask the Holy Spirit to come in and direct your life.  This is not a game…. as the evil one would have you believe.  This is very serious stuff.

As my dear friend says “Get your nose into the Bible”.  We must know what God says so we are not deceived.  If you do not read the Bible you will not know the truth and you will be easily led astray.

satanic statue being unveiled in Detroit

The evil one is becoming ever so emboldened.  Now that we, in the United States, have embraced laws that go against God, he is moving quite quickly.

What i find so interesting is that they designed this statue like a bench and put two children around him.  why would they do that if they hate the family, and hate the children.  They definitely are trying to draw the children into their trap, thats for certain.

The Fatima Organization is sending around an online petition to stop this unveiling from happening.  Lets do what we can to stop this abomination.   Sign the Petition at AmericanNeedsFatima.org

I would say that we are probably getting closer to God’s wrath coming down upon us…and I would say we deserve it.  Does this not remind you of the Golden Calf that the Israelites built when Moses was on the mountain receiving the ten Commandments.   Ironically, the satanists want to place this statue in Oklahoma next to the Ten Commandments.  Wow. this is so unbelievable.

THE SCENE
The Satanic Temple to unveil ‘Baphomet’ monument in Detroit
Posted By Lee DeVito on Thu, Jun 18, 2015 at 6:44 am

[Updated 12 p.m. July 3, 2015: The Satanic Temple has taken issue with our description of the organization as an “atheist activist group.” We apologize for the misrepresentation.]

Originally posted June 18, 2015:

Atheist activist group The Satanic Temple is apparently making good on its mission to erect a statue of Satan, originally intended for an ultimate destination next to the Oklahoma State Capitol’s monument of the Ten Commandments. In fact, TST plans to unveil the completed statue for the first time in Detroit next month.

Why Detroit? Last year, the group chose Detroit as the location for its first national chapter house. “Detroit is our first and primary chapter,” spokesman Doug Mesner says by email. “We feel at home in Detroit.”

The group of culture jammers pushes for a separation of church and state by distributing Satanic literature and fighting to be included alongside displays of Christianity on state grounds. Last year, the group erected a small temporary holiday display on Lansing’s Capitol lawn when it was announced that a Nativity scene was being proposed for the location.

The finished Oklahoma sculpture depicts “Baphomet,” Satanism’s winged, goat-headed icon. In a press release, TST calls the bronze monument — which weighs one ton and stands at nearly nine feet tall — “already the most controversial and politically charged contemporary work of art in the world.”

While Oklahoma’s Ten Commandments statue was destroyed last year after being run over by a car, it was swiftly replaced in January. Meanwhile, the group’s request to place the Satanic monument on the same grounds has not been granted. Mesner tells us that the Satanic Temple is currently gearing up for a lawsuit against Oklahoma; it is expected to be officially filed before the unveiling event.

In the meantime, the statue will get an unveiling party on Saturday, July 25 at Bert’s Warehouse Theatre on 2739 Russell St. in Detroit. The party starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 and $75 for VIP and available for purchase online.

VIP ticket holders get an exclusive opportunity to be photographed with the statue, receive a limited edition poster, and “an opportunity to meet and greet with TST Executive Ministry,” according to a press release. “Cocktail attire” is encouraged — “dress to impress the devil.”

What is considered New Age

The New Age Movement is rampant throughout the world.  imageNew Age philosophies are demonic and many Christians are deceived through clever disguises.  There are a couple of HUGE problems with  new age.  One, New Age Practices are based on the principle of the person being a god.  They do not worship GOD, who created us, but worship themselves, nature, and the earth, which they call Mother Earth.  Second, by allowing new age practices to be done on you or you, yourself, participating in new age practices, the demons have been invited in to your mind and body.

Have you ever noticed that there are groups of people in hospitals who will come to your room and ask you if you want prayer?  Well, who wouldn’t want prayer when you are sick.  The prayer they use however is not from God.  They call it “healing hands”, “Reiki”, “Therapeutic Touch”, and “Hands of Light”.  These methods are based on energy-channeling.  Healing does not take place by God who is the Healer but by demons.  These healings do not last and in most cases cause worse problems down the road.  For more on these types of new age healings  here.

What is the New Age Movement:

The expression “New Age” came into existence in the 1970s and 1980s. It was promoted by the circulation of the New Age Journal and a book by Mark Satin called New Age Politics. Marilyn Ferguson’s best-selling Aquarian Conspiracy was a presentation of the social agenda and philosophical vision of the New Age. Ferguson’s writing attained status as the unofficial scripture of the movement. As Russell Chandler, a writer for the Los Angeles Times, wrote in Understanding the New Age, “If Ferguson wrote the New Age ‘Bible,‘ Shirley MacLaine is its high priestess.”

Shirley MacLaine’s book, Out on a Limb, chronicles her reluctant conversion to New Age belief. This book describes her travels and studies, which include science fiction-like dimensions, out-of-body travel, contact with extraterrestrial beings, “trance channeling” (séances), and a “guided tour” of the unseen world. MacLaine’s second book, Dancing in the Light, tells about her reach into the world of yoga, reincarnation, crystal power, Hindu mantras, and past-life recall experiences mediated through acupuncture. Her spirit guides informed her that each individual is God, and she passed along the “wisdom” that the person is unlimited. One only has to realize it. (Chandler, page 6-2).

Getting into “Fairys” is very new age.  In fact I have a story here for you.  I have a friend who told me she became involved in Fairys around the time she was in college, or sometime thereafter.  But, once she got married and had children she was still spending time reading all these different books on fairys.  One night, her husband was out of town, she layed all her books out on the bed.  Around midnight she heard someone coming up the stairs.  What startled her, was that in the doorway of her bedroom was a demonic figure looking at her.  She started to say the “Our Father” and didn’t quit saying that prayer until the demon left.  When her husband returned the next day she told him about her visitor.  They then gathered up all the books and put them in the fire pit and burned them.   What is so sad is that I just looked at Amazon and they have numerous books on fairys for children.

Harry Potter is not any better.  In fact, another friend of mine went to a conference in Florida a few years ago.  At this conference an ex-satanist was there with a Priest talking about the Harry Potter books.  He told the audience that those are real spells in those books and just having them in your home causes demonic disturbances.  Get rid of all Harry Potter books.  satan is so clever.  What does the Lord say about this:

“There shall not be found among you anyone who …practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.”
Deut. 18:10-14

High level witches believe that there are seven satanic princes and that the seventh, which is assigned to Christians, has no name. In coven meetings, he is called “the nameless one.” In the Harry Potter books, there is a character called “Voldemort.” The pronunciation guide says of this being “He who must not be named.” On July 8 at midnight, bookstores everywhere were stormed by millions of children to obtain the latest and fourth book of the series known as “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” These books were taken into homes everywhere with a real evil spirit following each copy to curse those homes. July 8th was also the 18th day (three sixes in numerology 666) from the witches’ sabat of midsummer. July 8th was also the 13th day from the signing of the United Religions Charter in San Francisco. Now we have learned that the public school system is planning to use the magic of Harry Potter in the classrooms making the public schools centers of witchcraft training.  More here.

If a person dabbles with psychic phenomena [spiritism, seances, levitation, necromancy, astral projection, table lifting, handwriting analysis, automatic type writing, visionary dreams, telepathy, materialization, clairvoyance, ghosts, healing magnetism, mental suggestion, speaking in a trance, amateur hypnosis, self-hypnosis, fortune-telling of any kind, tarot cards, palm reading, biorhythm, rod and pendulum (dowsing), horoscopes and astrology, Ouija Boards, witchcraft whether white, black, or gray, voodoo or joojoo, blood pacts, sorcery, love potions, fetishes, magic charming and talismans, eastern religions, Zoroastrian, Bahai faith, Freemasonry, Mysticism, transcendental meditation, Zen, Buddhism, karate, I-Ching, yoga, reincarnation, ESP, telepathy, hypnosis, scientology, the writings of mystics, and psychics such as Jean Dixon, Edgar Cayce and incubi , succubi (sexual spirits) and others….] which are so widely accepted today, they can expect to be invaded by these spirits. They have opened up the door.

As our defenses are dropped by our meddling curiosity, occult spirits can and will enter in and establish themselves. These are the spirits which travel to the third and fourth generations through the parents (inheritance) because consorting with them breaks the first commandment by contacting another god. A curse from God results. (Deuteronomy 18:9-12) and (Exodus 20:3-5) More here.

Reflexology:

Those who practice reflexology hypothesize that the body contains an energy field, invisible life force, or Qi, the blockage of which can prevent healing. Reflexology, although seemingly innocent, is rooted in anti-biblical and un-Christian Eastern beliefs, and has been rejected by modern science for lack of empirical proof of its claims. Reflexology, which the New Age movement has made popular, is based on the idea that there is a cosmic energy inside of everything, including our bodies. This energy is the very “material” of both creation and deity, and when in proper balance and focus, humans can supposedly realize personal divinity for themselves. Such a belief in personal divinity, or an acceptance of other religions and beliefs, though, rejects the God of the Bible (Exodus 20:3).

Accupuncture

But most practitioners tap into the underlying belief in tao-ying-yang, and agreeing with the Vatican was famed non-denominational Christian deliverance expert Derek Prince, who in a book entitled They Shall Expel Demons wrote that: “Another occult practice that opens the door to demons is acupuncture. Some physicians and other medical personnel today justify its use on the ground that ‘it works!’ But an analysis of its occult background reveals that acupuncture will never ultimately promote the well-being of those who submit to it.” He cited the following warning from a Chinese doctor who said:

“About eight years ago, at a retreat in Singapore, God spoke to me about the dangers of acupuncture and its link to the occult, especially its inseparable origin with traditional Chinese medicine. I immediately renounced my practice of acupuncture — a skill I learned in Hong Kong and practiced successfully for five years.

“As soon as I came back home, I announced to my startled staff of doctors, nurses, and patients that acupuncture is dangerous and that I had renounced it and would not practice it anymore. I gathered all my machines, needles, books, diploma, and charts and made a great bonfire of them publicly. The total cost of these items was about $15,000 — but the blessings after that were priceless because:

“1. My wife, who had suffered from chronic migraine and had acupuncture, done by me many times before, was immediately healed without medicine or prayer.

“2. My unexplained fear of darkness immediately vanished.

“3. My medical practice, instead of suffering a loss, received a double-fold increase in blessings.

“About three years ago we saw a very unusual case during a healing rally in Kuching, East Malaysia. A Christian lady came forward for prayer regarding her rheumatism. As soon as we started, the Lord gave a word of knowledge that she had submitted herself to acupuncture treatment in the past. She confirmed it, but each time she tried to renounce it, she was thrown onto the floor screaming in severe pain.

“We realized that she was being tormented by demons that had gained entry to her body through acupuncture. After we took authority over the demons and cast them out in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, she was delivered and totally healed. She then told us that each time she had tried to renounce acupuncture, invisible needles began to pierce her over the parts of her body where she had previously submitted herself for treatment.

“Let me end by relating a tragic case. The Christian brother who taught me acupuncture suffered from severe depression and committed suicide under mysterious circumstances. The world does not know the whole truth, because he had everything in life, but I think I know: He came under a curse and paid for it with his life.” (Spiritually.net)

For those of you who believe yoga is ok as long as you are just doing the so called “exercises”, you are being deceived.  Every movement that you make is a posture of worship to one of the Hindu gods.  For more information,  I wrote about yoga here.

If you know of anyone involved in any type of new age activity, please let them know the dangers of doing so.

God Bless!

 

Homeopathy – A New Age Medicine

Homeopathy, it would seem, would be just another healthy alternative to taking medications.  But, it really is an insidious scam and demonic.  For all of those out there who truly believe in the efficacy of these alternative medications, you need to read this and pray to the Holy Spirit to reveal Truth to you.

satan is so clever and he will do whatever he can to get us to fall into his trap.  New Age philosophies, whatever they might be, take us away from God.  We are taken from the Light and put into darkness.  We are worshipping another God, which God commands us not to do.  We are endangering our souls and the souls of those whom live in the homes that are involved in new age practices.

Deuteronomy 11:16-17

“Take heed lest your heart be deceived and you turn aside and serve other gods and you worship them, and the anger of the Lord be kindled against you…”

What is wrong with HOMEOPATHY?
James Manjackal MSFS

Many people write and ask me, “What is wrong with Homeopathy? Can a Christian use it? Is it connected with new age and esotheric?” etc. I must say that I have not made a deep study on this subject. But I have seen the bad effects of it on Christians and their spiritual lives. Many who have problems in their prayer life, like–lack of concentration, distractions, feelings of tirednes, yawning during prayer, pains on all over the body during prayers especially when they call upon the Name of Jesus, bad imaginations espcially immoral ones during christian meditation etc- have admitted that they were having homeopathy treatments, and when I have asked them to stop homeopathy, they were able pray well. Recently a man came and told me that he is not able to pray in tongues although he was in the Charismatic renewal and prayergroups for a long time. He was taking homeomedicines for insomnia. When I asked him to stop the medicines and to take normal scholastic(allopothy) medicines, he was able to sleep and was able to pray in tongues. One relgious sister in Slovenia told me that she was asked by the Doctor who gave her Homeo medicines for the cure of her cancer to stop having Holy Communion for the better effect of the medicines. Many people in Germany, Austria and France told me that the Homeopathy doctors, while giving medicines, advise them not make the sign of the Cross or call the Name of Jesus before taking Homeo medicines, as normal christans do everything with a sign of the Crass or a small prayer. Why this exception to homeopathy? Perhaps the Sign of the Cross or the Name of Jesus may bombard the power or energy in the Homeomedicines! I have a testimony to share with you.

Thirteen years before a catholic Homeopathy doctor asked me to bless his Homeo Clinic. Gladly I went to his clinic and blessed the clinic with the normal prayers from the Romal ritual and springled the Holy Water all over as he requested. After a few days he came and told me, Father James, after your blessing and springling of the Holy water over my clinic and medicines, I had to throw away all the medicines as they lost the “potency”. Thank God he did not threaten to sue me! Then I asked the doctor himself the reason of medicine’s loosing the “potency”(power) while I prayed with the power of the Holy Spirit. He had to admit that the power in the medicines was something contrary to the power of the Holy Spirit. Then he asked me to look into bottles of medicines of Allopathy where the contents of the medicines are clearly declared, like Carbo hydrate 15%, Magnesium 20%, Alcohol 5% Water 10% etc, whereas no such declaration of contents on bottles or packets of Homeomedicines is found,instead the medicines declare their effectiveness by “potencies” like 1000 Potency, 10 000 Potency,a million potency etc. The doctor himself admitted his ignorance of the origin of this power or potency. He said that the main effect of Homeomedicines is placebo effect. It is clear that the potency is a hidden power(occult power). I do not make any judgement about Homeopathy as I am not an expert about it, but one thing I will say to my chiristian brethren that it is not good for a christian to use them or to practice them, whatever “good” effect it may bring upon the sick people.Many esotheric and new age treatments (alternative therapies) advertise saying “they are cheap and they have no side effects” but they dont say the main side effect on christians that “they take people away from Christ and the Church, and the Salvation which Christ has brought to this world”. The Vatican document “Jesus Christ the Bearer of the Living Water” clearly speaks of the hidden danger of Homeopathy and other alternative medicines based on occult powers.

Here I publish a few articles and excerpts of some eminent doctors and experts on this matter and I leave the discernment and judgement to the readers. More here.

New Age Medicine:

A biblical / traditional doctor first checks your blood and then proceeds from there, for the word of God says, Lev. 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood. The word of God does not say that the life of the flesh is in the energy! Energy/spirit medicine is unbiblical and will open you up to devils!

Homeopathy was started by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), though it is partially based on principals used by Greek Physicians dating back to Hippocrates in the fifth century BC.

As I studied I came across this quote, “Hahnemann reasoned that there is a subtle energy force in the body, the vital force, that responds ‘to the tiny provocations of the remedies and enable the body to heal itself’ (Lckie and Geddes, 1995, p.18). In this respect, homeopathy is compatible to meridian therapies in that both are professed to treat an inherent bio-energy system.” (Energy Psychology, Gallo, pg 44)

So Homeopathy is treating the “Qi” as well, though they refer to it as “bio-energy”. Nevertheless, it is still the same thing no matter what it is called. This “bio-energy”, that is also known by over 90 different names, is not merely energy, but it is spirit. The energy of your body is your spirit for the bible says, James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. The “subtle energy” is spiritual, and the Word of God says, Gen. 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. The subtle energy Hahnemann is referring to is spiritual by nature and not benign energy such as electricity. It is unclean, making it an unclean spirit.

So, how are the Homeopathic remedies created? This is where it gets “spooky”. Well, you first get a substance that you want to turn into a homeopathic remedy. Often times these are poisons, and very toxic substances. In order to use them they are then diluted to the point that “not a single molecule of the mother tincture was left in the mixture.” (Energy Psychology, Gallo pg 44) The process of diluting a substance is known as “potentization.” Now you have a more potent substance, even though you have less of the substance in it? And the more you dilute it the stronger it becomes? That is Homeopathy. But there is a catch.

During the potentization process the substance is “succussed.” What happens when the substance is succussed is that it is vigorously shaken and banged on a hard surface. Hahnemann believed that this “caused the remedy’s energy to be released into the water/alcohol mixture.” (Energy Psychology, Gallo, pg 44) No, I am not making this up. There is more to this banging and shaking though. more here.

The Truth about Yoga

Yoga is one of those sensitive topics.  Some people will become very angry if you tell them it’s new age.  They don’t want to hear the truth.  That in itself is interesting, because I always think about something I read years ago.  I believe it was from St. Augustine, but can’t be 100 percent sure it was him.  Anyway,  he said, “the first response to truth is anger”.  

How interesting….A few years ago our Priest gave a talk on New Age practices and one talk was on yoga.  It just so happened that a young woman, who claimed to be Christian, was offering yoga classes in her shop.  When I gave her the information that our Priest had given us….she virtually went wild.  Like really wild.  She immediately began screaming at me telling me to get out of her shop and to never come back.  She then told her receptionist to call the police.  I was shocked.  I had never expected anyone to respond with that much anger.

Anyway, I am going to provide you with a few links to check out and become informed.  One is a young Christian woman, who started doing yoga with her mother when she was only seven years old.  Many years later, after her life was a mess, she finally called out to God for help.  Read here.

Why You Should Stay Away from Yoga

“These are postures that are offered to the 330 million Hindu gods. Yoga postures really are offerings to the gods. If you do these postures and you do this breathing technique and this meditation, then you will be accepted by a god, little “G.” That’s the real danger,”  more

Personal Result of Yoga – Awakening Kundalini
It may be true that the asanas (positions) and even perhaps the pranayama (breathing) can have health benefits, but the ultimate goal in yoga is something much more sinister. Very few Western yoga teachers actually touch upon this aspect of yoga – but according to the ancient texts, it is indeed the main aim – the asanas and the pranayama really intend to produce the awakening of what is known as “kundalini power”, which is taught as being a snake coiled around the base of the spine.

When this serpent is awakened, it will then move up through the body, through the “chakras” (the so-called life-force centres) and once it reaches the “crown chakra” (or the top of the head) it will explode into the so called “thousand-petalled lotus”.

This is when the danger really starts, and for many people from this point onwards it is almost impossible to return to any semblance of normality. The ancient texts actually include a warning about this, but most Western teachers are either ignorant of it, being too aware of the vast revenues that yoga can bring in, or are indeed themselves deceived and are willingly leading people down a very dangerous path.

Swiss occultist Carl Jung, in his book “The Collected Works of CG Jung” – termed it “a deliberately induced psychotic state”. Now, in most societies, deliberately inducing a psychotic state in oneself would lead to various sections of the Mental Health Act being quoted whilst having oneself bundled into a white van by some police officers.

I myself came very close to this stage. After I practiced yoga intensively (4-6 hours a day) for about a year, I began to be very depressed and nervous, but as I was unaware of the cause of this depression, I continued to use yoga as a way of filling my day.

One day, whilst being deep in pranayama and meditation, something in my mind exploded…

One day, whilst being deep in pranayama and meditation, something in my mind exploded, and my conscience turned white. Suddenly, there were beings dressed in white robes at my side (in the corner of my eye only, in my peripheral vision), telling me that they would guide me into a new life if I would only continue with my yoga.

I did not like that too much, and did not understand what was happening; neither had any of the books I had been reading mentioned anything about this manifestation, so I stopped. I was left in a sort of semi-aware state at that point (similar to the point one would reach just before or after the peak of an LSD trip), and I was also very much aware of what I could only describe as a rent in the fabric of this reality.

I went back into my asanas / pranayama the next day again, and within minutes these spiritual beings were back, with the same advice. They were insistent that I listen to them. There was a palpable anger now also given off by them, as I had consciously rejected them by stopping the day before.

I stopped again, and never returned to it. But I was always aware that these spirit-beings were angry with me, and I had no peace at all from then on. Only in drunken oblivion or drugs could I find any peace.  More here.

The vatican website has a very long article on the dangers of yoga and other new age methods.

Basic problem: new age is a false utopia

10. In conclusion, I would simply want to point out that the New Age Movement presents itself as a false utopia in order to respond to the human heart’s deep thirst for happiness, which is prey to the tragedy of existence and the discontentment of the deep unhappiness of modern happiness. The New Age Movement presents itself as a deceptive response to the most ancient hope of man: the hope of a New Era of peace, harmony, reconciliation with himself, others and nature. This hope, which is as ancient as humanity itself, is an appeal that bursts from the heart of people especially in times of crisis. The small document presented will help one to get a better understanding, to discern between things proposed and to raise in the Christian community a renewed commitment to proclaim Jesus Christ, the Bearer of Living Water. I look forward to the debate which our document will certainly spark; in the meantime, however, I sincerely thank the whole team of experts, especially Rev. Peter Fleetwood and Dr Teresa Osório Gonçalves, who have worked with energy and diligence in order to produce it.

While the word “Yoga” isn’t mentioned in Scripture, the idea of yoking oneself to pagan gods and concepts is forbidden. (Leviticus 19:31 Deuteronomy 18:9 Hebrews 10:26-31, Acts 4:12, and this biggie: Joshua 23:16.)

Our bodies were created to be “a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God which is our spiritual act of worship” (Romans 12:1) and “true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father) seeks.” (John 4: 23) more
