The Dangers of Psychics, Fortune Tellers, and Reiki “Healers”

“Children, when you are concerned about the many misleading powers in your world today, ask this simple question. ‘Does the power for the alleged claim come from God the Father who sent His only Son into the world?’ If the answer is no, then the power is being obtained from the enemy. Does this sound confusing to you? It should not sound confusing, because it is clear. If you are still confused, it is because you do not want to relinquish some habit that has gotten hold of you. Be vigilant here, brothers and sisters. There are impostors everywhere and the impostors do not seek the good of your soul. The enemy, in the form of these powers, seeks the destruction of anything that is holy in you. The enemy seeks your soul. The Holy Spirit within you will object and warn you if you have been nourishing the Holy Spirit. Do not become involved with anything that reminds you of fortune telling or healing. These habits are sinful. You will be held accountable. Speak out against them, warning your brothers and sisters. Christians in the world have become easy targets of the enemy’s followers because they are lukewarm. Not My little apostles, though. You will know the truth and speak it loudly. Warn others, please. We are losing souls in this manner.” -Jesus in Volume 10: Jesus Speaks to His Apostles

There is a growing trend of alternative forms of new age spirituality that have often replaced the traditional practices of Christian prayer and devotion. Though this might seem attractive at best and harmless at worst, in this post, I aim to strongly advice those caught up in such practices, persons, books, or objects (such as crystals or charms) to put them down and cut ties with them, once and for all. It is true that the power of the devil and his fallen angels, or demons, is minuscule compared to the power of the Holy Trinity, and as such, should NOT be feared. Yet if allowed the reign of our free will, the enemy of our salvation can easily influence, deceive, and ultimately corrupt the soul an otherwise intelligent and well-meaning person, and any others they may associate with/have influence over. These practices are simply spiritual doors you don’t want to risk opening.

With the help of Our Loving Lord, you can find true healing and forgiveness, holiness and peace, that comes not from the evil one and his false and fleeting powers, but from Heaven, our eternal homeland and the vast family of God. Consider, for example, the following is an excerpt from “Freed and Healed Through Fasting” by Sister Emmanuel Maillard of Medjugorje, entitled, “Fake Healers”:

“It is especially popular to go to “healers.” yoga masters, reiki masters or healing touch therapists in order to alleviate symptoms of illness. But from where do these “healers” receive their abilities? Many receive them from an unknown source. When, for example, someone visits a healer because of a bad left knee, it may get better, but then his right one begins to ache. The illness has simply been displaced. It has moved to another area and will become more serious. The person then returns to the healer, who may again recite several incantations or formulas and “heal” the second pain’ then a third illness will erupt, or perhaps something worse. In short, people who visit “healers” are never healed. Their problem only moved from the body to the heart, and then from the heart to the soul. Starting from a physical illness, it suddenly develops into temptations of suicide, incredible hatred, or deep depression. Why are we finding so many of our youth today committing suicide when apparently nothing in his or her life could have motivated such an action? Parents with good intentions take their children to “healers” looking for a miracle, and their children suffer the consequences of bad “medicine.” This bad fruit can manifest itself not only as an illness but as a lack of motivation. Suddenly a spouse becomes unbearable to his wife and every idiosyncrasy is an annoyance: his way of talking, of walking, of eating his doughnut. All at once a devout person is unable to pray. People with a zest for life no longer enjoy life.

The Church and the different religious communities within Her have seen many bizarre cases of these “healings.” She shoulders the burden of caring for the “after-sales service” of the unauthentic cures. The Church has found that the “healer” often recites incantations, pronounces strange words (sometimes mixed with Christian prayers), uses secret formulas, does massages and may mention the name of the traitor, Judas. Once I asked a fake healer, who converted and renounced his job, to tell me his secrets. He said that his “healing power” came from someone who received it from someone else, who received it from someone else. 

By tracing the history of these “powers” we see they come from satan and are given to a witch who then spreads them! Do not be mistaken- satan pretends to heal. Actually, he mimics Jesus’ healings. In the Gospel, Jesus tells us that the false prophets of the latter days will perform spectacular signs and wonders, even to the point of seducing the chosen ones. This is reality! satan doesn’t give presents away for free. He only deceives us in displacing the sickness, making it worse.

Several times, through the visionaries, Our Lady said to go and see doctors, but never to see healers. Why? She knows who is behind them! I beg anyone thinking of going to a healer, please don’t go!!! Even if they have a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes in their house, with a rosary in her hand, do not bargain your life for healing at any price. Chances are you will only end up sicker than before, and quite probably penniless!

If you’ve been to see a false “healer” for yourself or for your child, go find a priest and ask Jesus’ forgiveness. Also, ask the priest to pray so that all the bonds from darkness that might bind you (or your child) will be broken by God’s Word and blessing. Very often, a good confession is enough to break the chain of evil because there we renounce evil and all practices of darkness. You can also renew your Baptismal vows. This is an effective means to break all ties with evil, with satan and his works. The healings obtained through prayer and fasting are real, unlike the false cures that satan and his servants offer. The Lord gave us true healing not only for our bodies, but also our hearts, our spirits and our souls. When He doesn’t heal, He has another plan and blessing for the sick.”

If you or anyone you know has willingly participated in any potentially occult practices, in addition to having your confession heard as soon as possible to reconcile your relationship with God and cleanse yourself of any demonic activity or influence, I recommend also calling upon the holy names of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. After all, as St. Don Bosco once said, “More than anything else, these three names terrify and vanquish the devil.”

Frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament as well as the recitation of the holy rosary, fasting on bread and water, reading scripture, praying with friends and family, and having your house blessed (as well as carrying holy water and blessed objects) are other powerful ways to combat the attacks of evil on you. Finally, the following is a prayer to pray to Our Lord for His gift of discernment and salvation, from the Book of Truth as revealed to Maria Divine Mercy:

“The first seal is the apostasy”
Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 @ 15:40

My dearest beloved daughter tell My children that no man has the knowledge or the authority to reveal the truth contained in the Book of Revelation.

No matter how knowledgeable they may consider themselves to be, it is only I, Jesus Christ, Saviour and Redeemer of mankind who has the authority to reveal, to the world, what is contained in the Book of Truth.

Only, I, the Lamb of God has the right to deliver the truth, given to my disciple John the Evangelist, the instrument of the truth, to the world today.

The first seal is the apostasy seen not only among unbelievers but among those who profess to know Me and those who publicly proclaim their love for Me.

This is the time when the truth faith will be twisted, when you My children are presented with a watered down doctrine which is an insult to My teachings.

I tell you children that when you see new false faiths and religious doctrines spring up you will know that this is now the time for the first seal to be revealed.

Look around and what do you see? Religions that pay homage to new gods which you have never heard of. Science fiction based religions which amount to nonsense and which are empty of substance. Spiritual entities that are not of this world but which many believe represent the Heavenly realm of My Father.

Heed now for you are living in fantasy.

None of these metaphysical beliefs represent the truth.

Any doctrine which teaches you the importance of putting yourself before everything else is a doctrine which springs from Satan.

Do not listen. Turn your backs on this cruel deceit.

Those who seek out false gods and devote their lives by idolising false gods are lost to Me.

Unless you stop and pray to Me for guidance I cannot save you.

You and all those who knowingly withdraw now from the king of darkness will be given the gift of discernment if you ask me in this Crusade Prayer (36) Help me to honour the true God:

Jesus help me for I am lost and confused

I do not know the truth of life after death

Forgive me if I offend you by honouring false gods which are not the true God

Save me and help me to see the truth with clarity and save me from the darkness of my soul

Help me to come into the light of your mercy.

Amen.

There is only one God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in one the Holy Trinity.

Any other god comes from Satan no matter how attractive the guise.

Please do not waste your eternal life by pledging your allegiance to those faiths which honour new age practices including Reiki, Yoga, new age meditation, tarot cards, clairvoyancy, psychic readings and angel worship connected with ascended masters.

Slowly but surely these practices of the occult are being accepted not only by your society but by Catholic and Christian Churches.

These false religious doctrines are spreading so fast they have consumed billions of God’s children who have now found so much false solace within them that they no longer acknowledge the existence of the one true God.

Pregnant? Scared? Here Are A Few Things You Should Know

Finding out you’re pregnant can be some of the most unexpected and overwhelming news you’ve ever received.

There are probably tons of questions rushing through your mind, like, “What about my life, education, career, and goals? Will I have support if I chose to bring this child into the world? What options do I have? Who will I go to to talk about this?”

These are all very real and valid questions and in the above video and brochure, we will address each one, and more. But first, I ask you, in the midst of this crisis, to take a breath. Even though you might feel scared, pressured, or confused, you don’t have to deal with this on your own. There are many caring and compassionate people who can and want to help you.

Call 1-800-712-4153 anytime to speak with someone (en ingles o español) about your current situation and any pregnancy support centers and services near you, such as FREE pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, financial aid programs for mothers in need (like WIC), parenting classes, daycare, baby food/clothes/supplies, living arrangements, adoption agencies, and more! Or visit https://www.womenscarecenter.org/

There are 3 important questions to ask yourself when facing an unplanned pregnancy:

1. “How many weeks into the pregnancy are you?”

The answer to this question might surprise you and could ultimately make this decision for you. If you don’t know, don’t worry, because simple and FREE ultrasound can easily show you this.

Statistically, you are more likely to choose to keep the unborn child living inside you if you actually see him or her for the first time. Because of this, abortion providers may neglect to show you the reality of your child revealed in these live images.

Indeed, modern science tells us what you’re seeing on an ultrasound screen is not just a cluster of cells, but is actually a unique and precious human being. Thousands of embryology textbooks, science professors, and medical researchers confirm that at the moment of fertilization, when sperm meets egg, all of the unrepeatable DNA that determines your baby’s countless traits such as gender, ethnicity, and eye color are present.

If you are like most women, who find out that they are pregnant by 5 or 6 weeks into pregnancy, your baby is 3-4 weeks old and most likely, already has a heartbeat!

When I saw my baby for the first time, I fell in love. I did not know I could love another human being so much. I could not be more thankful that I did choose life.”   -Hannah, TN. Watch Hannah’s story here:


2. “What is abortion and what are it’s health risks and long-term effects?”

In the following videos by Live Action News, Dr Anthony Levatino, a practicing OBGYN who himself performed over 1,200 abortions explains the different kind of abortion procedures: 

In first trimester Suction and Aspiration surgical abortions, which occur anywhere from 5-13 weeks of pregnancy, the abortionist inserts a suction catheter through the cervix into the uterus. The suction machine is then turned on, and the baby is rapidly torn apart by the force of the suction and squeezed through this tubing, followed by the placenta.

In second trimester Dilation and Evacuation surgical abortions, which occur anywhere from 13-24 weeks of pregnancy, the abortionist opens the cervix and uses a clamp to grasp and pull an arm or leg of the unborn baby. One by one, the baby’s limbs are removed, along with the intestines, the spine, and the heart and lungs. The abortionist then grasps and crushes the head of the unborn baby and removes the placenta, scraping out any leftover tissue or body parts in the uterus with a curette.

Remember, if you choose abortion, you are putting yourself at risk of major complications such as perforation or piercing of the uterus, hemorrhage, and infection, which can even lead to lifelong sterility and, in rare cases, death. This is why Planned Parenthood will require you to sign a consent form that states, “I understand that my doctor cannot make any promise regarding the end results of the abortion or my care.”

Medical or “toilet bowl” abortion pills also come with a list of harmful side effects such as anywhere from a few hours to several days of pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, cramping, and bleeding. However, if you have already taken the first pill, RU-486, it is not too late to reverse its effects within the first 24 hours and save the baby.  Help is available through the 24-hour, nurse-staffed hotline by calling  1-877-558-0333 or visiting AbortionPillReversal.com

Additionally, you should be aware of the emotional trauma that many women have suffered from abortion:

-One study found that women who choose abortion have a 65% higher risk of clinical depression compared to those who give birth. 1

-Another study found that 60% of women surveyed after abortion responded, ‘Part of me died.’ 2

-An 8-year study found that women who chose abortion were, sadly, 6 times more likely to commit suicide than those who gave birth. 3

If you struggle with post-abortive guilt or grief, remember that healing is possible and that God’s Love and Mercy is always infinitely larger than your past mistakes. Many men and women have found a safe space on private weekend retreats to voice the heartbreak that abortion has caused them. Learn more at RachelsVineyard.com

3. What is your conscience telling you?

This is perhaps the biggest life decision you’ve ever had to make and no one should ever pressure you to go against your inner values, morals, or beliefs.

It can be hard to resist the influence of all of the voices around you in order to listen to the voice within your heart.

Spend time in silence, reflection, and prayer and you will begin to understand that this life, this human being inside you was nestled there by God Himself.

Who will your child grow up to become? A scientist? A singer? A world leader? Another parent? Only God knows the special plan He has for him or her.

 For these 9 months, this person depends upon your body and your cooperation. It won’t always be easy, but if you say, “Yes” to Him, God will equip you with all the strength and support necessary for bringing this unique and precious little child into the world!

In the words of Abby Johnson, former 8-year director of Planned Parenthood and author of the book become movie, “Unplanned“:

Having a baby is hard. But there is nothing that will bring you more happiness. I will never forget the first time she looked at me and smiled. It was like she knew me…she knew she was part of me…she knew I was her mommy. I remember the first time she called me “Mama.” Her voice was so sweet, so perfect. I WAS her mama. Only me. I gave her life; she gave me joy…joy that I would have never experienced without her.

I remember when she cut her first tooth, when she took her first step, her first Christmas, her first birthday. All of these firsts that I could have taken away because of “choice.” Choice. Choice because we are scared? Choice because we don’t have enough money? Well, big decisions in life are usually scary and if you wait for
your savings account to grow big enough to have a baby, you will never have a child. You see, many of life’s greatest blessings are unplanned. Mine was unplanned, and her name is Grace. I can’t imagine my life without her.

Is it always easy? No. But it is ALWAYS worth it. ALWAYS!

Finally, if you feel you cannot support a child at this time in your life due to your current financial, educational, or family situation, please consider the beautiful, life-saving and free option of adoption.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this information on the science of fetal development, the truth about abortion and its health risks, and all of your options and resources! May you know the reality of God’s real Presence and deep Peace, especially in the midst of your current situation as you ponder and pray about His perfect Will for the beautiful little one within you.

“When it’s hardest to pray, pray the hardest.”
