Spiritual Crisis

Hello everyone! My name is Andrew and I’m new to this sort of thing but I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice or help as to my recent spiritual crises. (I thought I would put this under this topic though as it concerns the occult and “New Age” religions.)

I was raised a Roman Catholic and until I went to University was very happy with my faith and believed quite fervently in Jesus’ love of all his children and felt very happy knowing that he had died to save us from our sins. As I said though this was until at University where I fell away from my faith (I have been at uni for nearly 3 years now) and recently I had a very deep depression.

This depression essentially stemmed from my all consuming fear that I would not see the deceased members of my family again and that I believed for a time that after I died that was it…oblivion.

It was then suggested by certain members of my family that I consult some psychic mediums for ‘solace’ or ‘comfort’, I was willing to try anything due to my heartache and although I haven’t been to see a medium, I have been reading up about famous mediums and psychics who seemed to defy all convenient explanation and offer some sort of ‘comfort’ to the world.

I am gradually realising that these things are strongly taught against in the Bible and I was wondering if there are any more people who know from experience that it is indeed evil agents who are supplying these mediums and psychics with information, even when they talk about everyone experiencing a sort of heaven (I am referring to the supposed psychic communication of the deceased FWH Myers through the medium Geraldine Cummins in the 1920’s – perhaps some people know of this case and have recognized it as the work of Satan – please I need guidance.)

The case featured on this website concerning Laura Maxwell is obviously a chilling example of what can happen if you go down the occult or new age route, Laura I am truly sorry for what happened to you and your mother (God Bless her soul) it is absolutely heart-braking, but I just need that bit of help and perhaps some guidance as I am very confused and lost and I want to get back my faith…I want to know Jesus is watching over me and my family.

I am not meaning to test the BIble or the Lord, I am just a very confused soul who needs some comfort. Is there anyone out there who was a Spiritualist and is familiar with the stories of Jesus being a “great philosopher” and “advanced soul” etc and astral realms and all that similar spiritualist rubbish, who KNOWS it is wrong through grace or otherwise.

Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated, I ask for your prayers.

Many Thanks,


What do YOU think?

    I used to be so into all the occult things, there were times when I would try to do exercises to open my third eye and all sorts of crazy things, I was oppening so many gateways and had no idea. A couple of times I did speak to what I thought were my dead family members in dreams and I want you to learn from my mistakes that this is a lie. It seems amazing and real because these spirits sometimes seem to know things that no one else could but this is all part of the deception. All these spirits pretending to be dead relatives are demons and spirit guides giving mediums information are demons too, they are intelligent and know things but they are not who you think they are.
    One time when I thought I was talking to a dead relative in a dream, I could see an old womans face in like a light sphere and she was talking to me (trying to befriend me) but surrounding her face were lots of black mist and floating black orbs, after waking I told my mum and had described my dead great grandmother. However this is all a trick to fool people into a false security of thinking that hell doesn’t exist and to fool people into opening doorways that are difficult to close, in which demons can enter into your life and torment you.
    I’m sorry if this all sounds a bit scary, but you deserve to know the truth, I wish someone had told me before I got into that stuff. Just don’t go down that path. Destroy all materials in your home about the occult and pray to Jesus to repent and for protection. God warns us against these things for a reason, so we need to listen to him, demons are dangerous and hate humans, their ultimate goal is to decieve, torment and destroy people who let them. But we Christians should know better than to open those doors and to rebuke all demons in Jesus’s name.

    All new age religions and practices are lies to lead people astray, the only truth is Jesus and the word of God, take it from someone who learnt the hard way!

      Hi David,

      I am new to this forum, but have been a christian for some time now, and can tell you everything I read in the bible says to stear clear of this sort of thing. Honestly, not to sound harsh, but we need to trust that God knows what’s best for us, and loves us so much that he gave us the written word. So, I honestly believe in Deuteronomy he made it as clear as day for us, and all we need to do is follow. That being said, God cares about you very much, and you can cry out to him, and ask him to help your unbelief, and fear. The honest truth is if your family members believed upon Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior you will see them on the new heaven and earth. That is between God and the individual, for no man or women can judge another man or womens heart.

      There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things [are] an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Deuteronomy 18:10-12

    Andrew, I have seen people delivered of spirits that came into them as 'spirit guides' in the pursuit of occultic knowledge. Satan's realm knows more in the spirit than we do and they will tempt us with that knowledge that they may gain advantage over us. People have experienced polter geist and night torments as well as simple confusion and oppression.

    Seek the Lord for your knowledge. If you truly need to know it, He will show you!

    Andrew – stay away from a psychic, medium, hypnotist, astrologist and so forth, as they are strictly of the devil. They may give out some truth, but they are guided by satan.
