Ignatius Loyola, the Founder of the Jesuit Order within the Catholic Church started a series of what he called “Spiritual Exercises”. These spiritual exercises are also known as Spiritual Formation in Christian or Religious circles. This form of meditation, prayer, contemplative practices prepare a person for demon possession. It is taught in many schools, Universities, and “Spiritual” Retreats. Transcendental Meditation is another form of this spiritualism that prepares one for deception. It is one of Satan’s primary way to deceive the nations in these last days. Notice the following:
The advantage Satan takes of the science of the human mind, is tremendous. Here, serpentlike, he imperceptibly creeps in to corrupt the WORK of GOD. The miracles and works of Christ he would MAKE APPEAR as the result of HUMAN skill and power. If he should make an open, bold attack upon Christianity, it would bring the Christian in distress and agony to the feet of his Redeemer, and his strong and mighty Deliverer would put the bold adversary to flight. He therefore transforms himself into an angel of light and works upon the mind to allure from the only safe and right path. The SCIENCES of PHRENOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, and MESMERISM are the channel through which he comes more directly to THIS GENERATION and works with that power which is to characterize his efforts near the close of probation. 1T 290
Transcendental Meditation, Spiritual Formation, Yoga, Eastern Religions, eastern meditation, Hyponosis, Phrenology, & Psychology are modern forms of Spiritualism. These practices prepare individuals for demonic possession, which in most cases unknowingly to the individual. Don’t be deceived by what many are calling a “spiritual awakening”.
Katy Perry, Beyonce, Bob Roth, Opray Winfrey, Halle Berry, Jerry Seinfeld, Russell Simmons, Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sheryl Crow, and Stevie Wonder have practiced this type of meditation that was invented by Satan. Buddhism, Hinduism, and Yoga are also associated with these type of meditative practices. Many “gurus” at “spiritual” retreats practice this way of life. They do not acknowledge Jesus as the true source of peace, but teach that you must awaken the power that is lying dormant within you. Human power is worthless. Any spiritual or supernatural power outside of Christ is Satanic. There are only two unseen powers in this world. Either we are under the control of Christ or Satan.
