7 Colours of the Rainbow and the 7 Chakras

chakrasHow the Rainbow, Chakras/Tree of Life have infiltrated Christianity

Energy centres of the soul.  Each Chakra has it’s own function and their own unique powers.

There are actually more than 7 Chakras (a total of 13 in all),chakras Tree of Life

These 7 Chakras are the most powerful (as per occult lies) and they are located along the spine.

The 7 Chakra system is the most conventional system to follow when obtaining ‘enlightenment’.

The other 6 Chakras are less powerful (as per Occult lies) but when included in the conventional system it becomes the Tree of Life →  

In many grimoires and ancient texts, the code word for Chakra is GOD or GODDESS,  So each centre within you is A GOD or a GODDESS.

 chakrasEach Chakra is associated with a COLOUR , MANTRA and SYMBOL:

7th Charka – I understand – You have reached god/goddess level
 
6th Chakra – I see – Opened your Third Eye – See with New eyes or New Lenses.

5th Chakra – I speak – Higher intuition – that allows you to connect to higher wisdom and guidance.

4th Chakra –  I love  – We feel connected to other beings.  We receive inspiration and wisdom from higher Charas/Gods.

3rd Chakra –  I do – The seat of power, control, freedom, or autonomy by opening our consciousness to the will of God and peace.

2nd Chakra – I feel – The seat of creative energy and what the body needs (sexuality/food, etc.)

1st Chakra – I am – The seat of the Goddess Kundilini our supposed ‘life force’. When we are gounded at this first level we trust the universe to provide.

The 7 colours of the Chakras vs. the 7 colours of the Rainbow

7 colours of the rainbow“The experience of seeing the colours of the rainbow, when the sun is shining and it has been raining, is one we all can share. The experience often has a magical quality to it as though it is stirring some deep inner response. Such is the wonder of the light that forms the colours of the rainbow.The heavenly principle is to GIVE AS WE RECEIVE. We are not intended to absorb the light of the rainbow, enlightenment, joy and happiness, rather we are intended to transmit it; and in doing so to unfold its meaning for others, and for ourselves too.”      http://www.spiritualwisdom.org.uk/colours-of-the-rainbow.htm—–

“The rainbow represents the regenerate spiritual person – one who has lived out the path of enlightenment, whose potential has opened out like the lotus flower of the east, each stage represented by a new colour developing out of the one before.chakras

The main seven colours symbolise wholeness or holiness. There are a variety of rainbows sometimes seen around those in the spiritual realms – the rainbow of the ‘aura’, as it is sometimes called, picturing the spiritual state of the person.

Yoga teaches that there are seven centers or chakras in the human body. These are spiritual centers – you will not find them described in a materialistic medical book.”     http://www.spiritualwisdom.org.uk/colours-of-the-rainbow2.htm

The inside of the bow = The highest and innermost aspects of the soul   =   The Kingdom of Heaven

As we can see this is completely Occult / New Age / Witchcraft

If a professed Christian takes part in any of this they are playing with some serious hot fire.  You may as well get an entire deck of Tarrot Cards while you are at it.  Even though you might only be doing the Yoga stretching exercises you ARE following the ‘set out’ occult routine to obtain god/goddess hood.  And this is an ABOMINATION unto God.

You can try come up with every excuse in the book to tell me that there is nothing wrong with doing a few stretching exercises (within a Yoga context).  But these are NOT just exercises and stretching;  what about the controlled breathing, relaxation techniques, finding that silent place within you, silencing your mind, and entering trance like states, etc? (to name but a few).  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with exercising, but when you start to follow Eastern religious practices and try make excuses that it’s JUST exercising then you are making excuses to follow after other gods.

But what about plain meditation you say, where there is no yoga or other funnies involved – it’s just prayer you tell me.  And I answer, “No!”  Unbeknown to you (and now KNOWN to you because I have told you) you are following the exact same Chakra process above.  You can’t get away from this.  You can’t make excuses, there are no, “ifs”, “ors”, or “buts”.  The answer is still ‘no’.  Meditation as mentioned in the Word of God is simple one on one normal prayer with God through Jesus Christ.

What about going to a relaxation spa or resort where they offer the most wonderful de-stressing massages.  Hot stone therapy (placing hot stones on the chakra points along your spine.  Bet you didn’t know that did you – no it’s not mentioned in the ‘Occult Massage Manual’ never to be located anywhere near the reception area.  Take Reiki for that matter –  Reiki are spirit guides – the Reiki healer will use their spirit guide to aid the so called healing process as they hover their hands over your body – you think it’s an innocent process, well no, it’s not.  And guess what, yes you do feel much better after all these massages and clanging of little bells, and having pretty semi-precious stones placed strategically over your body.  Evil really does come in great spa treatments with a complementary yummy desert at the end.

NOW DON’T GET ME WRONG, there is nothing wrong with a massage.  In fact there is nothing wrong with breathing either, because quite frankly it’s common knowledge that if you stop breathing you die.  So please let us not get all tied up in knots about what’s normal every day life exercising, stretches and breathing vs. Eastern religious practices that bring forth an awakening within you, and you end up with a new way of thinking on what the bible means or does not mean to you anymore.

You can noy call yourself a Christian if you follow and practice any form of occult teaching.  A genuine born again Christian would know that this stuff is not of God because you were already warned by the Holy Spirit that abides in you.   If you have accidentally been caught up into this contemplative prayer, meditation, walking labyrinths, silence, secret places, new spirituality mysticism, please stop, and ask God for forgiveness, get out of this very well disguised deception.  And once you realise what this is all about, you now need to warn others you care about too.

We are living in perilous times where time itself seems to have sped up.  Almost as though time is running out.  The faster time seems to speed past us the faster the world is diving head first into New Age Spiritual practices as I mentioned in this article.  Millions upon millions of people have reached their 6th Chakra already- they have opened their Third Eye (they can see through new eyes or new lenses).

Ron Martoia (who came to South Africa recently) harped on for quite a few minutes about taking off your old lenses and putting on new ones to see through new eyes at the world around us – that there is a new truth out there just waiting to be tapped into by you – yes you dear reader, if only you would do as they say and learn to climb that Tree of Life.  Place first foot on first Chakra and then 2nd foot on 2nd Chakra and so on until you reach that top branch – the Crown Chakra – King of your own little imaginary kingdom, ruler of your own little domain –  A global humanitarian mutiny to take over something they never created and will never own.   And will never be able to create to call their own.

And The One and Only Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob stares down on you you from on high.  Your personal Towel of Babel – a piddly 7 feet tall, will only go so high and no more – take a lesson from Genesis 10 & 11.

You have 2 choices.  Just 2. You are either for JESUS CHRIST the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON of the ONE and ONLY LIVING GOD or you choose the world and their secret places, and secret knowledge instead, where you either get to enjoy your sin or get to hide your sin thinking that God can’t see you.

Just a few of  the types of Occult Meditation out there:-  Even available at Christian book stores.

Occult Meditation

There are many ways of meditating and meditation means different things to different people. Meditation is part of normal daily practice for a great number of people within some religions. Whatever the word ‘meditation’ means to you the practice can be enormously helpful as a way of calming the mind and finding your own inner peace.  This place of inner peace is where we can open up to our higher self – without the ‘interference’ of the ego or intellect – where we can find our higher intelligence and knowing.

Meditation can be achieved by focusing the mind on a particular object, for example a flower, or on a simple shape, on a sound, on an image (visualization), or by focusing on the breathing. (Colour breathing exercises can be done lying down or sitting and can be a very helpful form of meditation.)   There are many very helpful tapes and CD’s around to help with meditation as they will talk the listener through the stages of relaxation and some will help to build a ‘picture’ in the minds eye of tranquility.   With practice, you will find it becomes easier and easier to meditate and to be able to ‘switch off’ any time, anywhere, when you are feeling the need for some peace.

Occult Breathing Meditation

Breathing is very important – and as obvious as that sounds, it is surprising how few of us actually do breathe ‘properly’. Breathing is something we all take for granted and are inclined to forget about. However, shallow breathing can often be a symptom of stress. Similarly, shallow breathing can result in fatigue and stress due to the intake of insufficient oxygen.  Shallow breathing can also result in dizzy turns as insufficient oxygen is getting to the brain. Since approximately 90% of our energy is created by oxygen and nearly all the body’s actions regulated by it – it is rather important that we get enough of it!!

Go somewhere quiet and lie down or sit in a chair with good back support so that your body is straight, allowing you to breathe deeply and comfortably. Make sure you are not wearing any tight clothing. Tell yourself to relax. Work on every part of your body from the top of your head to your toes, consciously relaxing each part. Concentrate on your breathing, taking deep in-breaths, through the nose, letting the breath fill your body, relaxing and calming. Then breathe out through your nose or mouth, exhaling all negativity and stress and ridding your body of the toxins which build up there. Repeat this a number of times – if you can only manage 10 minutes that is fine. Eventually you will be able to practice this anywhere, any time, when you are feeling stressed. Try not to hunch your shoulders as you breathe in – try to consciously relax the shoulders and neck and breathe from the abdomen – watch your tummy expand as you breathe in.

There are a number of breathing techniques which are taught by practitioners of different disciplines, either on a one to one basis or in a group, such as a workshop perhaps.   If you have a particular medical problem, then a good place to start is with your doctor, who will be able to advise you.

Occult Colour Breathing Meditation

A lovely and very helpful exercise is Colour Breathing – or breathing in the rainbow.  The purpose of this is to heighten our awareness of colour and to encourage a balance of all the seven main chakra colours for our well being.

Stand with feet slightly apart and arms by your side, relaxed with palms turned to the front. Relax the shoulders, and concentrate on your breathing, consciously relaxing all of your body from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Breathe deeply in through the nose, holding for a few moments and then breathing out through the nose or mouth. As you breathe out, imagine expelling all the stress, negativity and toxins from your body. If you can do this exercise outside all the better, and, weather permitting, stand on grass with bare feet.

Affirmations, either spoken out loud or as a concentrated thought, can be helpful too to help us focus and avoid our minds from wandering. For example, red is the Colour of courage and strength – we could say to ourselves – the energy of red fills my body and I have the strength and courage to move forward along my life’s path. It doesn’t matter how we word our affirmations – they will be unique to each individual – but remember the positive aspects of the colours and make sure your statements are positive.

First breathe in red from the earth, imagine it rising up through your whole body giving you strength and courage. Make an affirmation to suit your situation as you breathe in and experience the colour filling your body. Allow the colour to travel up through the body and out of the top of the head and then back down again to the earth. Repeat with orange and an appropriate affirmation, then yellow. These first three colours are absorbed from the earth. Then green. This colour is absorbed horizontally through the solar plexus, let it fill your body, thinking or speaking your affirmation, and let it leave through the back. Then blue which is absorbed from the sky, through the top of the head and out again going back up to the sky, similarly with the indigo and violet.

If this exercise is done daily you will notice how your colour awareness develops and you will be able to visualize the colours much more strongly as you do this exercise regularly, balancing and enhancing your body’s energies.

DTW:

Could Roger be given the opportunity to defend himself against the liar charge?

Roger Saner

AdMo – Approval based on Amanda’s question:

Thanks for laying out in detail your argument, Amanda. Let me respond bit by bit.

1. Of course Guillaume’s claim of DTW deleting all dissenting voices is false. I’m a dissenting voice, most of my comments are published, ergo DTW does not publish only those people who strengthen her views.

What I said is that:

Many of my comments have been deleted off this blog (although most of them haven’t).

I followed up with:

This lends some credibility to Guillaume’s claim

This is correct logically – Guillaume’s has some credibility, because some of my comments (and comments from other dissenting voices) have been deleted. DTW deletes some comments, and they’re only from people who have dissenting voices. Where is this logically incorrect?

2. I wrote:

And to think we were even talking about a CITY!

You wrote,

No, you were not.

I say, Yes we were! If you really like, go and find previous conversations between Nic and me and others online, say Linda or Cori or Cobus or Arthur or Bryan or Peter or Sean…on EmergingAfrica.info and elsewhere, where that request has always been in the context of a city. It’d be really weird if someone responded with a street address to that request anyway!

Still, I can see why you though that was threatening, as you seem to believe that Emergents will stop at nothing, even arriving un-announced and uninvited to someone’s house with the express purpose of intimidating them. This is, was, and never will be our intention.

Based on this irrational fear of yours, I acknowledge that our question was out of line. If we’d know earlier you were afraid of us, no-one would’ve asked that question.

3. Amanda wrote,

My point was that you lied on this thread and therefore your word on our safety is meaningless. If you want me elaborate so that you can have the opportunity to defend yourself, I will do so.

I’m waiting for you to elaborate and lay out the argument as to where I lied on this thread. That’s what your comment was supposed to be about, but you haven’t even brought up the charge of my lying! So far, all you’ve done is claim that I’m employed some incorrect logic, and dispute that Nic and I were talking about a city. No sniff of lying yet. At best, if you end up winning this little exchange, you’ll prove that I can’t think too straight and that I like threatening people for the fun of it. But I can’t see, by your response, where you’re accusing me of lying?

Again, I write the same thing:

You say I lied on this thread, I say I didn’t. Please lay out the case for my lie so I can respond.

we have decided to call it a day for you on this blog.

Ok AdMo, I’ll respect your wishes – this will be my last comment on this blog. I only ask that you either publish my previous comment or send it to Amanda, because she asked for the right to lay out a certain argument and I think she’d appreciate my reply.

Re: the Disceramentalist Mafia – I don’t know who that is and I don’t even follow that blog, but I’ll go and check it out and see what they’re up to.

As for Graeme, he usually responds to comments on FutureChurch, so feel free to write there. So far I haven’t felt the need to moderate comments there – I hope to keep it that way.

I’m sorry to hear that people here feel intimidated by Emergent Christians. I’ve tried my best to show that this is not that case, that I would be the first to stand up for Amanda and Deborah if they were in any way physically threatened by anyone. If that’s not good enough, well, I can’t do more than that.

TTYN.

AdMo

Roger Saner you said “Re: the Disceramentalist Mafia – I don’t know who that is and I don’t even follow that blog, but I’ll go and check it out and see what they’re up to.” this is not true, again you lie. You know who Iggy and his Discernamentalist Mafia website. Just to back it up, see your comment here: Roger Saner September 4th, 2009 at 11:18 am

Now I see you have gone and posted there about being banned from here. Excellent, continue to post there, should do wonders for your future “church”. The youth of today love this kinda hateful, disgusting satire aimed at Jesus Christ and His Saints. New Age Christianity with a New Christ is in. The old way and Jesus Christ and repentance of sin is out.

Amanda

So long, Roger.

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith–
(Philippians 3:8-9)

Roger Saner

@AdMo: my apologies – I’d forgotten about the Disceramentalist Mafia – I was last there months and months ago and they sounded vaguely familiar when you mentioned them. I did indeed post a comment directly after visiting there this afternoon (so when I said I don’t know who that is and I don’t follow that blog, I meant it – my memory was indeed a little fuzzy).

Btw, I don’t expect this comment to be published – just replying directly to you. Cheers.

sara

i hope one day you’ll all understand, you are stuck with words and religion cages.
you can believe in god and still know your body and all his energetic function, that’s all. to be a master of your body means to respect your body/soul and the one of others being. this is the biggest bless on earth. and you are missing it. brothers i hope you will get it one day.

lots of love!!

Robbie

Too shallow for me…
Rom 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

Nick

For someone who says this stuff is evil, you sure do provide us an awful lot of information on how to do it. Don’t ya think?

Robbie

Nick
It is actually simple.
Some of “us” do not notice the difference between a false and genuine $10 bill unless someone presents the detail on the false one. The intention is really to teach “us” to learn to discern

The problem is that so many self proclaimed Christians think it ok to serve flesh and spirit with the same passion and has become so “addicted” to the occult that it becomes necessary to dissect until the carcass is exposed.

Let me keep it simple. Rat poison consists of 99,9% good food and 0,1% poison. It still kills. It is like the many deceptive pastors and prophets exposed on this blog. If you miss the detail, you will fall into the ditch.

But now you are here… stick around and keep reading, At least… you will not get your ears tickled here

Redeemed

Nick, in exposing evil it is necessary to explain just how evil it is. If any professing believer would want to have anything to do with “Christian” yoga after reading this, they are falsely professing.

You apparently miss the point of this article if you think it might lead someone into taking up yoga.

Exactly what is YOUR point? Help us to understand, please.

Hello there~

Wondering if I may be able to use an image from your website. Curious to know if there are copyrights.

Unbelievable! Get your facts straight! The current Christian Bible was created by Constantine 300 years after Christ died and has nothing to do with the early Christ followers. Stop intermingling a bonafide philosophy with your own interpretations of religion! If you tell me that GOD is a guy in the sky, I’ll tell you he is an alien! God (consciousness) does exist and current science has proved it! Do your homework! Get a clue! Ancient energy systems are NOT evil! Everything in this Universe is made up of nothing but energy, so it stands to reason it can be influenced by the only thing that truly does exists. I’ll let you find out what that is if you are brave enough to stop being a sheep and do your own research! By the way Jesus was a Jew!

Tom Lessing (Discerning the World)

Terri Haney,

You are watching too many movies like the Da Vinci’s Code and allowing them to lead you to destruction.

Question: Please comment on this new bestseller, The Da Vinci Code. It claims the Bible was collated by Constantine and a vote of the Council of Nicea, which did away with the gospels that spoke of Christ’s humanity and embellished gospels to make him godlike. The Council voted to establish Him as “Son of God.” The Dead Sea Scrolls prove that the modern Bible was compiled and edited by men who possessed a political agenda to promote the divinity of the man Jesus Christ [in order] to solidify their own power base. The “Holy Grail” was revealed by Da Vinci in his painting of the Last Supper when he painted Mary Magdalene on Jesus’ right. The “secret” that is being hidden is that Jesus was married to Mary and they had a child. The “Priory of Zion” secret society claims this is a royal bloodline that still exists. They worship the female deity, Mary Magdalene. My concern is that young Christians could be misled and the bias of non-Christians against the church and Bible strengthened.

Answer: This is sensational nonsense, which many are more willing to believe than the truth. There was no vote at the Council of Nicea concerning the books of the Bible. They were simply quoted by both sides. The Old Testament had been settled centuries before Christ, and no vote was needed for the New Testament. It was not until the Third Council of Carthage 72 years later that the first counciliar declaration in this regard would be made. Christians knew and agreed by consensus upon the New Testament.

Yes, the Council of Nicea did put down the heresy of Arius, who denied that Jesus was God. But they settled the matter from the Bible and not by Constantinian edict. The Old Testament itself proves Christ’s deity. Among the Dead Sea Scrolls was almost a complete copy of Isaiah, which turned out to be exactly the same as the copies the church already had—and it clearly declares Christ’s deity. No one could tamper with the Old Testament, of which we have the Septuagint dating back prior to 200 BC—and it agrees with the New Testament. The historical and prophetic accuracy of the Bible and its doctrinal unity from Genesis to Revelation proves it has never been revised in any way.

That Da Vinci painted a woman into the Last Supper is disputed—but what would it matter if he did? He wasn’t there and is not the authority. “Holy Grail” is more nonsense and sensationalism. That Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene is more of the same. You put your finger on the obvious bias—denying Christ’s deity while elevating Mary as goddess.

Prove that this book is foolishness? It contradicts the Bible, which we know is the truth, and therefore it must be false. The Bible is filled with historical and prophetical proofs for which there is not enough space to recite here.

Confused

I’m a bit confused. I believe it is safe to conclude that many commenting on this article are in fact followers of the Christian religion. I respect your choice to follow in this belief but I think you should be a bit more respectful of others’ beliefs and religions. In the Christian religion the only being who can judge is your God or the Son of God. Why then does it seem that the author and those commenting are judging those of the same belief and those with differing views? I think everyone on here could benefit from a little tolerance and respect when it comes to such a personal topic. Your bible coincides with beliefs across the globe and the history of time. The story of Jesus Christ coincides as well with many other prophets in other religions (following the same story of being born to a virgin mother, dying for the sins of man only to rise 3 days later~ which also just so happens to coincide with the astronomical event of the winter solstice and the stars which form Orion’s Belt). I can understand and respect the idea of believing and putting faith into religion but there also needs to be respect towards those with opposing views. No where does it states that God would punish individuals for believing different ideas just because a radical side wants to believe that only they are following the right path or belief. If we are all “Sons of God” then this spiritual being created all individuals, even those with opposing points of view, for a reason.

Tom Lessing (Discerning the World)

Confused,

Christians are commanded to judge righteously which means that they should evaluate everything in the light of the Bible. Showing respect and tolerance for anything that does not line up with God’s Word is called idolatry. For instance, the idea that the astronomical event of the winter solstice and the stars which form the Orion Belt coincides with the biblical narrative of Jesus Christ’s birth, is not true. In fact, it is pagan mythology at best. Rev. Hislop writes in his book “The Two Babylons:”

In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, “about the time of the winter solstice.” The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among ourselves–Yule-day –proves at once its Pagan and Babylonian origin. “Yule” is the Chaldee name for an “infant” or “little child”; * and as the 25th of December was called by our Pagan Anglo-Saxon ancestors, “Yule-day,” or the “Child’s day,” and the night that preceded it, “Mother-night,” long before they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character.

From Eol, an “infant.” In Scotland, at least in the Lowlands, the Yule-cakes are also called Nur-cakes. Now in Chaldee Nour signifies “birth.” Therefore, Nur-cakes are “birth-cakes.” The Scandinavian goddesses, called “norns,” who appointed children their destinies at their birth, evidently derived their name from the cognate Chaldee word “Nor,” a child.

Far and wide, in the realms of Paganism, was this birth-day observed. This festival has been commonly believed to have had only an astronomical character, referring simply to the completion of the sun’s yearly course, and the commencement of a new cycle. But there is indubitably evidence that the festival in question had a much higher reference than this–that it commemorated not merely the figurative birth-day of the sun in the renewal of its course, but the birth-day of the grand Deliverer. Among the Sabeans of Arabia, who regarded the moon, and not the sun, as the visible symbol of the favourite object of their idolatry, the same period was observed as the birth festival. Thus we read in Stanley’s Sabean Philosophy: “On the 24th of the tenth month,” that is December, according to our reckoning, “the Arabians celebrated the BIRTHDAY OF THE LORD–that is the Moon.” The Lord Moon was the great object of Arabian worship, and that Lord Moon, according to them, was born on the 24th of December, which clearly shows that the birth which they celebrated had no necessary connection with the course of the sun. It is worthy of special note, too, that if Christmas-day among the ancient Saxons of this island, was observed to celebrate the birth of any Lord of the host of heaven, the case must have been precisely the same here as it was in Arabia. The Saxons, as is well known, regarded the Sun as a female divinity, and the Moon as a male.

The God of the Bible is a jealous God who will not tolerate his children to have any association with any form of idolatry, paganism or other religions. However, they are commanded to love even their enemies while they are intolerant of their religious practices. God loves all people but does not tolerate their idolatry.

You wrote:

Not all people are Sons of God.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (John 1:12).

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14)

Yes, He created all people but He did not inspire them to have opposing points of view. He want his children to be of one mind and one spirit.

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. (1 Corinthians 1:10)

As for God judging and punishing individuals for believing different ideas, the following will suffice.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8-9)

I was a fire officer on the floor of a huge building where I worked for many years. It was my duty to inform my colleagues exactly what to do and where the emergency fire exits were. Anyone who disobeyed me during fire drills – even my seniors – were scolded and warned very harshly about their conduct. I was in control because I was held responsible for everyone on my floor. Now, imagine what would happen when everyone followed his own ideas to escape a fire. Most of them would probably be killed. The same applies to things in the spiritual realm. The God of the Bible has supplied all mankind with an exit to escape the fires of hell. His Name is Jesus Christ. Anyone is free to follow his own ideas but it leads to destruction.

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Proverbs 14:12).

A great detailed post indeed, but i’d rather you keep an open mind and speak from an objective paradigm that doesnt intend to influence but express and let people choose if they view these as bad evil or good, not everyone is a christian and there is nothing wrong with that, these concepts are solemly based on spirituality its power how people choose to use it is up to them, you throwing prejudice lables is totally out of line.

Hello again.

I tried to find the appropriate place to post this.

I’ve posted a few other questions elsewhere on this site because I “see” (the Holy Spirit shows me) God’s Truth being presented in this ministry, and that there is sound spiritual discernment. Praise God!

I find it more and more difficult these days to find that! I have been spending a good amount of time here recently and am so glad to have found this website

My question has to do with that I have a condition that gives me physical pain, and massage helps alleviate the pain enough so I can physically move and function better. The problem I am running into however, is that almost every massage I go to wants to (or has) all this other stuff that I DO NOT WANT … such as reiki, crystals, etc. Jesus is my Savior and I do NOT believe in all the hocus pocus stuff that I know is demonic. I tell them I only want the massage.

So my question is this – If I pray for God’s protection from any evil and I of course reject any of the beliefs of these massage therapists that have these other things in their practice and I do not partake of these other things and only get the massage and I tell them that I only want the massage, will it be spiritually safe for me or is there a possibility that I might be spiritually harmed?

Also, please pray for me in this also. Thank you!
