2 Corinthians 10:3-5
For although we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh, since the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments and every proud thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ. --Paul the Apostle
I’m against empty minded meditation.
We do not need to empty our mind and welcome demons in—New Age and Worldly meditation is an open door to permitting the influence of Demonic Spirits.
Of course Yoga & meditation BOTH are so popular today in the world we live in–Satan wants people to engage in meditation & yoga to open doorways for demons to enter.
The book of Psalms tells us to meditate on God, on his word (the Holy Scriptures) on his precepts, his statues, his promise, on all he has done, on his wonders, on the works of his hands.
New Age Meditation is all about emptying yourself–Meditation the scripture talks about is all about filling yourself
Meditation the World encourages is all about detaching from reality–Meditation God talks about is all about attaching to him, his promises, his power, his presence.
New Age meditation is passive– Meditation scripture talks about is intentional.
I remember reading several “self-help” books (from 2015-2019) that heavily promoted new age meditation. At one point I ignorantly (occasionally) attempted meditation, as suggested by those books…. I never could empty my mind fully and looking back now–wow, I’m so thankful I didn’t get more into it. I have since asked for forgiveness from our Heavenly Father & repented. I completely stopped doing yoga & attempting meditation, I burned my Yoga bag & trashed the yoga mats we had, I burned what books I could burn and I trashed the rest of the new age books disguised as “self help”.
Obviously, now I need to let others know the truth about these forbidden & dangerous new age practices.
