The New Age Movement is rampant throughout the world. New 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.”
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.

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.
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).

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.
