A question for all those who claim that we are in fact God, and that New Age philosophy holds the key to human progress (NB - there is nothing 'new'
about the New Age; it is a collective relapse into former patterns of self-delusion...)
Why is it that persons suffering from mental disorders are denied Reiki treatments? Why are they ostracised from New Age communities, and treated as
sub-human by those who claim to be enlightened? Why can a shaman not heal a person of Schizophrenia?
Because the New Age is full of deceivers, charlatans, and the spiritually non-discerning (who are often lovely people, who really do mean well, and
wouldn't even know about what I am about to describe) The deceivers & charlatans are, to varying degrees:
- Aware that Reiki will set off demonic manifestations in those who are afflicted in the spiritual realms.
- Aware that the sufferer will not be able to open their third eye safely, due to demonic interference; and that they cannot be healed of such by ANY
New Age belief systems or practices. Meditation is impossible to the afflicted person, due to interference from beyond their own noetic atmosphere.
New Age practitioners cannot truly say that they stand for the unity of Mankind, because they DO ostracise persons with serious mental health
disorders, often falsely claiming that such a person is suffering because of their own choices in this life (their fall-back position is that they
have bad karma from a previous life - which is BS*)
- Because the Shaman is subservient to the spirits he/she serves - the serpents spoken of by the Ayahuasca of South America, for example, who
'initiate' a person into their service as a shaman by humiliating, denigrating & deceiving that person through various means. They literally mock &
attack the human during the hallucinatory vision process, causing him/her to doubt that they are of any worth whatever, before issuing pretence at
friendship, eventually rendering them entirely subservient. The shamanic initiate follows their lead, in order to receive the favour of the spirits,
& the fear/adoration of their fellow man. Those serpent spirits (demons) have zero interest in 'healing' persons being afflicted by natural processes
beyond their ability to heal through magical manipulation, or in healing those afflicted by entities spiritually greater than themselves, in
hierarchical terms (or afflicted as part of a plan implemented by spiritual powers greater than themselves..)

* NB - I do believe that repeated incarnation is an occasional possibility, under special circumstances - but I do not hold that we inevitably come
back to Earth to work out our karma from prior incarnations. If there is work to be done, I believe it is a guided process after death; also, that
redemption is possible beyond the grave for the previously unspiritual person - God is infinitely merciful, and not the author of 'black & white
judgment', as many Christians portray Him. Personal choice is the key, and we should live according to what reality presents us with, acknowledging
the reality of separate beings with independent conscience-guided consciousness, personally responsible for the majority of our individual actions..
We are not 'all one', despite protestations of the New Age - reality demonstrates clearly that we are disparate, unique entities, yet connected -
socially, spiritually, and by shared material heritage.
The totality of the Cosmos is too vast for comprehension - God is beyond us, beyond our intellectual comprehension - and yet all around us, closer
than our very heartbeat, as we discover when we acknowledge our position as 'Denizen of the near-infinite Cosmos'
, as opposed to
'Infinite LORD of the Cosmos'
Some of the above are controversial statements for a person who is a confessing Christian, but I believe such based upon what I have researched,
witnessed & personally experienced. I tend not to share these thoughts with other Christians, as they are quite often entirely narrow in their
thinking on such topics, despite various clues scattered around the Judaic/Christian scriptures. It's a real shame that we have ended up this way,
but I hope to be able to aid a transition to more tolerant and less dogmatic Christianity through my writings.
- Even those Christians who can seem narrow-minded and unwilling to 'think outside the box' on certain issues, are most often truly wonderful people,
who work charitably in their communities, and can be relied upon to support any & every person who comes to them for help. I speak from significant
experience, and can testify that I was delivered from spiritual oppression only at the hand of praying Christians - I had resisted asking them for
help due to the 'narrow-minded' argument, until I realised that the New Age movement simply didn't care about people with mental health disorders/
issues of spiritual persecution.
