“New Age visualization is the use of mental concentration and direct mental imagery in the attempt to secure particular goals. Most popular “think yourself rich” (or healthy, or sexy, or happy) seminars and books endorse and use visualization as well as modern New Age seminars. In one’s mind, one can create “projection screens” on which to project desired images, such as greater self-confidence, losing weight etc. Claims from proponents are the quest for personal power, inner knowledge or spiritual enlightenment and physical health. Visualization is routinely used by shamans, spiritists, magicians, and witches. It is also widely used in psychic healing. Accompaniments with visualization are relaxation, meditation, trusting in the “guide,” the cultivation of willpower, various forms of self-hypnosis etc. Visualization is often used to develop psychic powers. This fact is recognized by numerous experts in both the occult and visualization fields. Some occultists acknowledge the importance of successful visualization for contacting the supposed astral realm where spirits dwell. Visualization can be used deliberately in magic ritual for spirit contact and spirit possession, but those things can be encountered in normal visualization practice or even through purely make believe fantasy rituals. In modern channeled literature, the spirits (really demons) actively endorse visualization, recommending specific exercises for learning how to contact them and become a channel. Christians are to be renewed daily by the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the Word of God. Not to be renewed using Eastern metaphysics or inner work through visualization.”

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
One thought on “New Age Visualization”
Many apostate churches today have change agents who are practicing Vision Casting. This is tapping into the demonic realm. Also, the Bible is truth or “what is” while a vision is fantasy or “what can be”.
