I have been opening up to the Christian path, a beautiful heart centered path of healing and deliverance from sin. In the ministry of Jesus, he taught, healed and cast out demons. His healing ministry is the reason I reconnected to the Christian path. My training in energy healing works both to remove negative energies and entities, as well as to heal and fill-up those who are being healed with divine light.
Surely, the work with addicts has shown me that people can be possessed by these lower entities and energies. I believe these exist both outside of ourselves (such as living within spaces and within the drugs themselves, and I beleive that we ourselves can create them through our own constant negative emotions and thoughts.
In Christianity they are referred to as demons and unclean spirits. Jesus frequently cast these out, and told his disciples they also had the authority in his name to cast out demons (Mark 16:17)(Acts 16:18). I always was attracted the the story of Jesus casting out the demons into pigs that then went and drown themselves in the water. It fascinated me because the consciousness of the demons needed to go somewhere...if not in the pigs what would have happened to them?
Most certainly, people can be released from the bondage of these unclean spirits and healed.
Yesterday, I had an encounter with a visiting pastor at our local church. He will be hosting a deliverance ministry next Saturday, and after our conversation he insisted I come. Not as an observer, but out of his perceived need for my deliverance. We had started talking about yoga and Wim Hof, which he let me know were both demonic. He showed me a list of things that were demonic three pages long. Yoga, meditation, Reiki and other spiritual practices were on the list. I even noticed sage and incense were on the list. (Didn't the wise men bring Jesus incense?) I told him I wasn't in a place to completely change my own beliefs. He became rather aggressive and said God had brought me to him so this could be revealed.
I left the meeting angry and uninspired. I have only just started this journey on the Christian path and I am immediately being confronted with the reason I left this path in the first place. Here is how I see it, God is Good. Those things in alignment with goodness are of God. God is Truth, anything that is not true is not of God. When we start to demonize those who are good, we will be diverting all of the energy we need to address the true evil in the world. When we start creating divisiveness, we are moving away from God and Love.
I have also spent the past 10 years working a powerful program of Codependency Anonymous. The teaching of CoDA are focused on how to connect to your inner truth. Developing a deep relationship with your higher self, and the God of your own understanding. I have a good sense of who I am today. I know that I can be used by God to do good in this world. I have learned to trust my inner self, and the guidance I receive from my higher power through prayer, meditation and yes breath-work. Did I mention there is a demon associated with breathwork?
I have been struggling, because I know there is a beautiful truth in the Christian path, but this superstitious beliefs about the evil of yoga, meditation and breathwork I cannot abide by, at least not in this moment. I believe those who are Good in this world, lightworkers here to help uplift those who are suffering through love and healing, need all the help they can get against the truly demonic forces running the show. I also believe, that perhaps part of this new opening into the path of Christianity is to shine light on the real teaching of Love and Healing of Christ Jesus and to break the superstitions. If this is the case, I accept it fully. I ask God to show me the truth. How can one follow the teaching of Jesus without being demonized for the health giving and life affirming practice that have been and are being revealed through science and spiritual revelation?
