I’m growing more and more wary about New Age practices. This includes crystals, horoscopes, healing, divination, Yoga, transcendental meditation etc. When you chant a name whether it be Om or Sa Ta Na Ma (which I tried to beat addictions), do you really know who you are chanting to? I feel the same with crystals. For ten or twelve years, I have filled my home with crystals. I wore Moldavite for about eight years. I no longer feel the need to read horoscopes, get tarot readings, even use my divination rod.
Since I put all of my crystals and New Age books in a box to be sold, my life is better. I am attracting writing jobs that pay well, I feel like I have the power to beat my addictions, and I know there is nothing to fear. What if a negative hold had taken over me in a subtle way when using these items? Why did I always want to find out about my future and my personality through astrology? Why was the now moment never enough for me?
Why do healing practitioners put a charge on God’s energy for healing? Where is the belief in unconditional love to heal? The world is becoming increasingly hooked on New Age, and I feel that is being promoted as healing and positive, as there is an underlying agenda. It is to make you believe that you are becoming a God, and you do not need to look outside of yourself for faith and comfort, that you ARE the power. Yes, I think this is a dangerous practice. I was not born to become a God.
I read something about the Law of Attraction yesterday, which confirmed my beliefs about that. Gone are the days when all we had to do was surrender to God to have our needs met. I am now at the stage where I no longer fear money because I believe God will provide for me. The Law of Attraction promotes materialism. It may have taken me years to reach this stage but I know my faith in Him has healed my fears. Now, Law of Attraction is so huge. All we have to do to “attract” whatever we want is to visualise our new life. I am sorry, but life is not that simple. If we have to ask for more, it is because we feel empty inside. Be grateful for that which you do have in your life. Be humble and grateful for all that you have. Detach from worldly attachments. The Law of Attraction teaches the opposite.
Those of you who believe I am a negative person because of the darkness I write may not know how grateful I am for this experience to grow. Yes, I think about death, but who wouldn’t in the moment? It is a test. The synchronicities and meeting Jon in the most unusual ways of ways has taught me that God works in mysterious ways. I have always prayed for a true Spiritual Teacher and I met him in Stu Strang. Somehow, I always had doubt in my heart about New Age Spiritual gurus. A Course in Miracles or Tolle’s A New Earth are dangerous, which is why they are so popular amongst the media. Detaching from people is the hardest thing because I want to love unconditionally rather than conditionally, and surrendering my attachment to people makes me feel so alone.
There may be no escape from healers who promise they can heal you with God’s love, but this love is abundant. It is inside of you, it is inside of me, and it is inside the hearts and minds of everyone. New Age teaches that it is okay to ignore the suffering in the world if you want to attract less of it. However, it is still happening whether you choose to admit it or not. Share in the suffering, for it has arisen from the selfish hearts and minds of Man, which includes you and me.
I do hope for a unified Earth, but who knows what is the underlying agenda behind New Age. The suffering in the world is so unnecessary. The more I step away from it the happier I feel in the world and myself. New Age seems to put a happy light over everything, but the real issue is still staring us in the face. Work on yourself and heal through self-love. The judgements stop, the fears divide, and the darkness dissipates. Unconditional love is free.
I am not a firm believer in everything the Bible states. I certainly don’t believe mass Genocide is OK. I believe there is corruption and confusion from Man woven through the Bible. However, I do believe in God and I want to live a wholesome life that is not built on worldly attachments and a belief I am a God. New Age breeds so much confusion. I do not wish to confuse anyone I go with what my heart speaks. I am on the path to surrender.
