Demystifying the Third Eye for Seers

Third Eye Sight vs the Eyes of Your Heart

(Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow)

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (NIV, emphasis mine)

The third eye is also called the mind’s eye, eye of time, or the inner eye. It is a mystical, esoteric ‘invisible’ eye which is said to provide vision, sight, and perception beyond ordinary sight. It is claimed that you can open your third eye by focusing on your third eye chakra, meditating, choosing the right surroundings, flooding it with light, emptying your mind or focusing only on a meditation object, picking a mantra like “um”, and repeating until you “see something”. A list of reputed benefits to opening the third eye that new agers tout include: psychic abilities, telepathy, vivid/lucid dreaming, more effective astral projection, better sleep quality, enhanced imagination, enabled aura viewing, seeing spiritual guides, seeing energy, and seeing with eyes closed.

 

Some people describe seeing a ‘tunnel-like portal or worm hole’ inside their head. It can also feel like opening the ‘eyes of your imagination’, but often more vivid. Seeing with the third eye is often described in similar or same terms as those of us who see in the spirit, including a screen in your mind, or a projector screen that displays images several inches or feet out in front of you. The biggest difference is not so much how the third eye works in comparison to the eyes of the heart (spirit or eyes of understanding) so much as what people tend to see. In my experience, the third eye is much more prone to being deceived. I will talk in the next chapter about when I saw demons disguised as angels and how once you see that, as clear as anything I have seen in the natural, you will be very cautious about everything mystical! Some of the things the third eye sees, according to those who have experienced it, include seeing speed of thought, colors that don’t exist in the natural realm, images of aliens, spirit guides, demons, ascended masters, the astral plane, silver chords, and geometric and mathematical patterns, and psychedelic shapes.

 

People describe a sort of x-ray vision at times, seeing into things like bodies, souls and objects. They can often see things from the past, see into the future, and even into other dimensions and universes. Images seen can be digital, in cartoon form, solid, opaque, or felt and not seen at all.

 

If you have tampered with the new age, or invoked the opening of your third eye, I recommend going through the activation prayer in this chapter.

 

The biggest problem with third eye sight is that people often use it as a psychic gift, become mediums, and converse with beings that do not have their highest good, or Salvation, in mind.

 

Leviticus 19:31 “Don’t turn to psychics or mediums to get help. That will make you unclean. I am the Lord your God.”

 

There are about twenty-two verses that address psychics, mediums, and the tricks of the enemy. Scripture is clear that psychics are evil and an abomination to the Lord. We, as Believers, are not to mess with horoscopes, tarot cards, palm readings, initiating contacting deceased loved ones, or intentionally opening the third eye. The third eye can be an access point for the enemy, a satanic portal, or an opening to the astral plane and demonic realms. I have personally witnessed in the spirit (and natural) that when a person is hypnotized with a light machine, placed on the forehead, it created a spiritual portal through which demonic entities could more easily enter the mind. Flooding the third eye with light is another way it is said to be activated. The sixth chakra and kundalini awakening are tied to the serpent, and we need to flee. Although many people think seeing in the spirit and activating your third eye are the same, they are not! I also do not agree with many Christian’s teaching on “how to purify and activate the third eye.” God has clearly shown me the Eyes of the Heart and the Eyes of our Spirit man are the same, but the third eye is the counterfeit, occult, and easily prone to deception and seeing what the enemy wants you to see. Beware. [Example: April 20, 2014: Evangelist John Ramirez with Shannon Davis of Omega Man Radio, “How to Purify and Activate your Third Eye.”]

 

For further proof this is sourced in the occult, may be a demonic portal, and should be renounced, the third eye is called the All Seeing Eye in Freemasonry, Shiva in Buddhism, the Eye of Clairvoyance in Hinduism, and the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Osirius in Egyptian mythology. People who use the third-eye-sight are also often called seers, which is why I am starting with this complicated topic to make a clear differentiation. God commanded His people to be separate from the Egyptians’ practices. We see in the Word what happened when Moses and the Egyptian sorcerers both turned their staffs into serpents. Today’s Christians would have called Moses new age and demonic, surely. His intimacy and obedience to God was the secret to his operating in the spirit, in signs, wonders and miracles, and it is our key also.

 

Part of how I know how I see in the spirit is not via third eye sight, as I have never had any experiences similar to my new age friends. They are very, very different, with few similarities. I have seen demons disguised as angels, and universes, and dimensions, and heavenly realms and places, but I have never seen spirit guides, or animal spirits, or the astral plane, or aliens. So, my other dilemma was that I never did anything to activate my spiritual sight. I had to figure it out with the Lord. He is the one who called me a Seer, and confirmed it (see preface), so I am going to go with what He says about me, not what men say. I started seeing in the spirit about the same time I was saved, around age three, and continued off and on my entire life. ALL if it was God-initiated. I do not see anything unless He shows it to me. For some people they can control their seeing in the spirit, they can look to see, or turn it off, it just does not work that way for me. I have asked to see something, and the Lord has shown it to me. Taking a stance that all spiritual sight is ‘of the devil’ or ‘none of it is’, is dangerous.

 

One time, the Lord used an amazing Christian Missionary Alliance pastor in my life to help me when I shared with him things I was seeing in the spirt. He was gracious and did not rebuke me or condemn me like others have, but he instead was used by God to deliver a timely and profound message in my life. He told me a story I had never heard before, although I have since then heard it many times. When the FBI want to spot counterfeit bills, they don’t go studying the counterfeit. They spend so much time handling real money, that when the counterfeit shows up, it is obvious. The next day another lady started to tell me this same story (confirmation). The Lord spoke to me and said, “Study me alone, I am the real thing”. Spend so much time in the Word, in the spirit, in prayer, in worship, in prayer, in fasting, in the Word, that the enemy just looks like plastic flowers when he shows up, and I am not talking about the ones that look real, I am talking about the cheap dollar store kind people put on tombstones. I will let the dead bury the dead, I am spending time with the Living God, who smells like flowers instead of Sulphur.

 

There is a saying circulating in charismatic church circles that we need to ‘redeem’ things for the Kingdom that the enemy has stolen, and that ‘God’s ability to protect us is greater than the enemy’s ability to deceive’. I both agree and strongly disagree with this statement. I think it is actually very dangerous doctrine, maybe even a doctrine of demons. We do NOT need to study the new age to understand God, or to redeem things that are lost. These attempts to redeem Yoga and things like Reiki are playing with abominations. We need to flee far from the enemy, and study only the original. YHWH, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God are perfectly capable of revealing what should be redeemed, and we need to spend so much time with them that the voice of the enemy or his liars is obvious. His tactics to deceive and thousands of years of practice often outperform our discernment, and we need to be continually plugged into the Source. Quit running to the new age to drag things out in an attempt to redeem them. Believers also need to ask the Lord directly if they are concerned with something spiritual that they think may be new age, it may instead be His original that the enemy has counterfeited. Remember, they often look the same. What source are you plugged into?

 

The bottom line for those who do not know Christ, is that accessing the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven is not permitted, including and especially inducing third eye sight.

 

Matthew 13:11: “To you is has been granted, to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them is has not been granted.”

 

In John 10:1, Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”

 

Activation:

 

“Abba Daddy, I come boldly to your throne in humble repentance. I confess that I have gone to look for the original among the counterfeit. I repent for being a thief and a robber and trying to gain access to mysteries in any other way than through Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I will only come to the Father through Him from now on. I turn and look only to you. I accept you Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. I only want to seek Your face, Your will; I only want to do what I see you do, see what you show me, and say the words you put in my mouth. I repent for seeking spiritual things among the new age. I repent for trying to open my third eye. As an act of my will I declare it closed in Jesus’ name, and seal it with salve, oil of Joy, and the Blood of the Lamb. Let me gaze on no unclean thing. Remove all scales, all veils, that hinder me from becoming like a little child and seeing the Kingdom. I ask Jesus to forgive my sins, all my iniquities; I receive His payment, His blood sacrifice on the cross. I denounce satan and all of his deceptive practices. I wash my eyes, all of them, body, soul and spirit, in the living water that proceeds from the throne of grace, and cover them with the Blood of the Lamb. Purify my eye gates, wash them clean. [You can even wash water over your eyes and forehead as a prophetic act] I ask that any deceivers be judged in your courts and sent where you will. Your will be done in me Lord, your Kingdom come! Send your guardian angels around me, around my heart, mind, soul, spirit. Lead me not into to temptation, deliver me from evil and deception. I repent, I confess, I turn, and I will clean my house [physical dwelling and body temple] of any ungodly thing, all idols, all gods, and replace in those rooms Your Word, your Spirit, ceaseless prayer, worship, and I will magnify Your name alone. I repent for seeking the signs and wonders and not the Giver of the signs. Forgive us for being a wicked generation and let us only seek You, intimacy with You, and obedience to You. In Jesus’ precious Name and Blood, Amen.”

Demystifying Meditation’s Dangers

Meditation 

Although many start using mediation or mindful-ness simply as a way to calm the mind or be present when manic, it can lead to other spiritual experiences. “If you’re not aware of meditation dangers, they can unexpectedly come and cause many troubles in your life, such as frightening visions, non-physical contacts, or even insanity.” –Simona Rich, Experienced Meditator and blogger (emphasis mine). According to Rich, the purpose of mediation is to awaken to the Divine knowledge that you are a god yourself, and that you do not need God. In mediation, “the loss of connection to god must happen for you to realize that you are god….When you meditate you may get many interesting meditation experiences. For example, when I meditate, I sometimes hear conversations in different languages, see certain events from this and other worlds and see different beings.” – Simona Rich, Meditator. Rich, as a very experienced meditator, has great articles on the benefits and warnings when it comes to meditation.  If you are not prepared for this or aware that this may happen, then it can come as quite a shock. If you are, then it can help prevent a psychotic episode. If you are ok with opening up yourself to spirit guides, the dark night of the soul, and other paranormal things happening, then meditation may be a viable form of stress release for you. If you have only heard of the litany of stress-relieving benefits, then consider these “spiritual side effects”.

These modalities are being introduced into psychologist’s offices, doctor’s offices, and even the schools as benign and medically-backed practices, and this is where I take concern when parents and participants are not given this information. As an investigative journalist, I try to just observe and research, but we all know sometimes bias gets in the way; I am for the patients having all the facts and being educated enough to decide for themselves what treatments they want to pursue, and informed consent given regarding any possible dangers, side effects, or possible psychosis, which seems counter-intuitive for a doctor or counselor to recommend to psych patients.

meditationandpsychosi

A recent research study showed that those with religious holdings are more likely to have psychotic experiences. You can view that article here.

Religion and spiritually-centered activities like yoga and meditation of various kinds tend to increase health and decrease disease. However, what if overall they had the opposite affect on the mental health community? Perhaps clinicians could look not only at symptomology, but start listening with ears to hear people’s soul stories (that may include discussions about past lives, alien encounters, guides, angels, demons, ect…). And even stranger, what if their stories are true according to their experiences (and even others around them simultaneously) and not delusional?! When two people in a room see and hear the same supernatural encounter, delusional hallucination is not the best diagnosis.

SO, what if spiritual practices like yoga and meditation decreased stress but induced psychosis? Would the spiritual negative side effects outweigh the physical positive ones?

In the cases of delusion and psychosis I propose that the mental health agencies look at supernatural causes of “delusions” that may not actually be delusional.

I speak from experience. In August of 2017, I was in a trance (not brought on by anything I did, like meditation) for about four hours that was mistaken for catatonia and taken to the emergency room, where I was involuntarily committed to the psych ward wing for three nights. I have not shared that story but may do so later. What may be labeled as a psychotic episode or delusion could (as some propose) actually be a spiritual awakening, contact from another dimension (God, angels, loved ones, guides, ETs as some claim), open visions, trances, demonization, mystic experiences, and a whole host of possibilities that were previously included in the past DSM-IV (V62.89) as religious experience “exceptions” to being called schizophrenic, delusional and psychotic.

The DSM-IV listed these as nonpathological:
* Mystical experience
* Psychic opening
*Kundalini Awakening
* Possession experience
* Loss of faith
* Terminal & life-threatening illness
* Change in membership, practices & beliefs
* New religious movements and cults
* Visionary experience
* Near death experience
* Shamanic crisis
* Alien encounters

 Although it may seem I digress from the topic of meditation, I don’t. Meditation is a door that often leads to these very experiences. Oh the irony: a psychologist recommends meditation to a client that leads to an involuntary committal. If trances, visits from other-wordly beings, and self-induced mystical experiences are what you are seeking, then proceed with meditation. However, if not, wouldn’t you like your counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist to warn you of possible dangers? They would not likely do so, because most of them do not acknowledge a supernatural realm at all.
I am not saying that all meditation leads to psychosis, or uninvited spiritual encounters of the weird kind, I am just recommending to proceed with caution. See below for some great verses to mediate on, and I also recommend the phone app: Abide.

Demystifying Gemstones & Crystals Biblically

“For Wisdom is better than jewels; And all desirable things cannot compare with her.” —  Proverbs 8:11

Lord, give us wisdom on this topic, give us discernment. Help us to honor you in all our ways, help us to seek after Your mysteries in Your way, not our own, and touch not any unclean thing. Amen.

I highly recommend reading Part i blog first to not take this article out of context and get some helpful background on how sound/prayer is applied to objects Biblically and scientifically. These are some serious subjects to delve into in just a few blog posts, so please don’t label me a heretic for attempting to shed some Biblical and theoretical light on this subject I get asked about a lot.

Do you ever see Christians wearing Gemstones and Crystals like New Agers do? No? Sometimes? Not really? Why not? Have you ever felt drawn to a stone, or repelled by it? Do you know why? Did you know that the High Priest in the Old Testament was literally adorned with them by the order and design of God Himself? Did you know that the Bible has over 38 verses about them? And Heaven is built with them? And God made them? Then why in the world do New Agers glom onto them? Just a few of the questions I mull over in my head, as my work takes me into all the world, especially around alternative healers who wear crystals. Some I am actually pulled towards, and some repelled by like a backwards magnet! I seek to touch on this topic here, but I am just exploring the surface, and am asking the Lord to reveal the answers, so please do the same if there is anything in this article you disagree with; I am not claiming this as gospel truth or pertinent to Salvation. I am just forever curious, and love to delve into topics others won’t touch, with aid of the Holy Spirit (and some of my own conjectures).

There are even people who claim to have had Gemstones appear in thin air and land all over their houses or churches! I know a few of these people personally. Wow, if this is genuinely from Him, what a mighty God we serve! Why would He do that? If authentic, I think it is because He is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider, and He loves to give good gifts to His kids.

When I was a child, I seemed to be so drawn to rocks; I would suck on them as a toddler, collect them, notice them as jewelry, and even had a beautiful natural rock crystal formation that looked just like a unicorn (unicorns are talked about in both the Bible and rumored to be mentioned in the satanic bible also, but I am not going to go digging there for proof!), with a little crystal horn and all! Then, in the 80’s the Assembly of God church we attended was preaching on cleansing homes of anything even remotely New Age or from the “Age of Aquarius”. Dutifully, my parents got rid of their old records, smashing them in the living room, throwing out their Santa-Clauses and Mrs. Santa too. Then my collection: the cabbage patch doll, the unicorn crystal, rock collection and every other unicorn they could find, pajamas stuffed animals and all! This was very traumatic to me as a child, but I in turn did not allow any of these things into my home until a few of them more recently.

SO what is UP with gemstones and Crystals? Crystals AMPLIFY power and sound and act as a recorder, conductor and megaphone!

If you were to hold a tuning fork up to your ear and strike it, you could hear the sound. By resting the tuning fork ON a crystal and striking it, the sound is turned UP! I have actually seen and heard this demonstrated.

Crystals in computer and TV displays. 

Some phonographs use quartz crystals to convert vibrations of the stylus (needle) into electric impulses. For electronic use, a quartz crystal must be flawless. Most of the crystals now used in electronics are synthetic. Rock crystal is used to make lenses and prisms for optical instruments.

The way a quartz crystal benefits a circuit is that mechanically the crystal acts much like a tuning fork, with a natural resonant frequency, and the piezoelectric property allows that to be coupled into an electronic circuit.

Crystals can relay information physically on a Liquid Crystal Display monitor, like an eReader, TV, or computer monitor.  This is what LCD stands for. So how does this have a spiritual application, or even should it?

Crystals housing demons & use in the New Age 

I do not study the counterfeit, and won’t even go research it, as I do not want to open myself up to it, but there is information that I glean just from certain friends or reading testimonies of people who have been set free from occult practices, which I find the best way to learn. I find a certain amount of information helpful in leading people to the Truth from the counterfeit power of the New Age.

The role of crystals in electronics is well known and Quartz crystals are used to control the frequencies of oscillators, and as circuit elements. Since crystals are good for transmitting electronic frequencies, it may be that occultists assume that they must also be good for transmitting psychic frequencies, vibrations and healing power. The New Age now has incredible body of (likely) folk lore regarding the supposed healing and energizing powers of crystals, even attributing them to clearing and healing the “chakra energy centers”.

But I feel it goes much deeper than that, both for good and evil!

In a good article by the Christian Research Institute, (CRI) (one I both agree and disagree with), they say:  “Though we do believe in demonic energy that can work through occult practices, we see no reasonable basis to hold that crystals have inherent properties that make them especially good transmitters of demonic power.”

I disagree with this quote, based on scientific research and the occultic use of crystals and gemstones, and testimonies of those set free from the New Age, I believe they can “house” and “amplify” demons and their supposed power.

Here is an excerpt from a very good book, Betrayed by Her Guardian Angel (pg 189) that gives unique insight from someone who was set free from the occult regarding crystals she was given for “psychic energy protection”.

“Hold this stone, and tell me what you feel,” Rhonda said.

Eve took the purple stone that was offered, and closed her eyes to shut out distractions. In the hand holding the stone, she felt a slight tingling sensation. “I’m not sure what I’m crystalsfeeling,” she said. “It feels like a faint vibration.”

“That’s the stone’s natural energy,” Rhonda answered. “It’s good that you can feel it. That tells me you’re very sensitive. Now give me the stone. Stand facing me, and watch.”

While Eve watched and listened, Rhonda did a ritual of sorts, calling the energy of the Spirit of the East into the stone. “In the East, the sun rises,” Rhonda intoned. “It is the direction of renewal and rebirth. The Spirit of the East draws his energy from fire. I call upon the Spirit of the East to infuse this stone with the energy of fire…”

“Now hold the stone and tell me what you feel,” she said.

Eve took the stone and closed her hand over it as before, then closed her eyes to concentrate on what she was feeling. The “slight vibration” had increased a hundred fold. “That’s amazing!” she cried. “It feels like the stone has electricity running through it!”

The author also talks in the book about other spirits being called into stones, using amethysts to “establish energy protection pyramids”, feeling them tingle, vibrate and cause electricity to run up the arm, making it almost go numb, “warming sensations”, and “cobweb sensations of negative energy”. None of this seems like a harmless piece of rock, but sounds like a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall by rejecting the cornerstone, which is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:8 for context).

Then why did God make them?

(more revelation on this coming later, based on a glimpse the Lord gave me that I am still seeking confirmation on and permission and timing to release).

Now, what about those stones on the High Priest’s garments? Biblically, this is reflected in the vest worn by the High Priest in the Hebrew religion. According to best translations, the author of Exodus 39 states that sardius, topaz, carbuncle, emerald, sapphire, diamond, jacinth, agate, and amethyst were all embedded into this vest. The High Priest Aaron would use this chestpiece (called an ephrod) when approaching the physical manifestation of God’s glory on Earth – to offer people’s prayers to God in the Holy of Holies, beyond the veil. What physical and spiritual properties were imbued in these crystals and rocks, if any? This vest carried spirtual symbolism, was used for Divine guidance, (Ummin and Thummim), and possibly even as a bridge between Heaven and earth realms in meeting God beyond the veil (more on that later).

The gemstones listed as part of the priest’s breastplate are similar (or same?) to the 12 stones that the Bible describes in the Book of Revelation as comprising the 12 gates to the wall of the holy city that God will create at the end of the world, when God makes a “new heaven” and a “new earth.” And, because of the translation issues of precisely identifying the exact breastplate stones, the list of stones may be entirely the same.

Different Bible scholars have speculated, and ultimately, it’s not that important, because they have been replaced by a Solid Rock on Whom we stand: Jesus. (3)”  

Jesus is our living Stone, and we, in Christ, are also living stones! (1 Peter 2:4-8) We, as extensions of the apostles to go into all the world, are the rock upon which Jesus has built His church. We are the temple of the Most High God, his dwelling place. We do not want to be, or pay tribute to, the dwelling place of demons!

“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

SO, What NOT to do with Crystals, Rocks and Gemstones: 

DO not treat them as good luck charms, omens, a talisman, or ascribe to them power, honor, healing properties, “fortune cookie” meanings, or “energies”. God is our healer, period.

DO not carve or buy a graven idol image made of rock, stone, crystal, wood, glass, ect. This includes totem souvenirs from Africa, Alsaka or Hawaii!  (The unicorn-shaped crystal, although naturally formed, may have been considered a graven image, by the Lord, I do not know! If in doubt, don’t, just don’t!).  Graven idols and idol worship (even in yoga) is serious business to the Lord and should be given a complete ‘hands off’ approach!

“You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.” Exodus 20: 3-5

So what can we do with gemstones, crystals, and rocks?

Remember to never take my word for anything, but go directly to God and to the Word first and foremost!

One option is to just leave them alone if you have any fear, discernment, or reticence about what is good and right and what is not. One person may have permission from God to wear a certain pendent, and the next may not! There should not be any fear or condemnation around them, however, just obedience.

Worship the Creator, not the creation. Glorify God that He is creative, loves beauty, and made them. Thank Him for them as a gift from above, and recognize that they are symbolic in Heaven and on earth as adornments in crowns, rewards, used on priestly garments, and can be a symbol of marriage covenant on earth. But recognize that it is the fruits of the spirit which are the real gems in the Kingdom, and gold is merely paver stones. We are to cast our crowns before Him and trade everything for intimacy and relationship with Him!

According to CRI, “Demonic energy can work through people’s belief in magical objects.” So do not put any faith in them! Trust in God alone.

Want to buy crystals, precious stone jewelry, or keep ones you may have? I would just burn any that have been used in anything occult-like. Did they just come straight from the rock shop but could have been cursed? Cleanse them from any sin or power that may be attached, covering them in the Blood of Jesus, dedicate them to the Lord, thanking Him for His creation, and then anoint them for His purposes and Glory. Let them serve as a reminder to ascribe all Glory to His name. The power of the Holy Spirit does not need any amplification from a crystal, like the enemy tries. God has given me peace about cleansing and dedicating certain things, like my used wedding ring, and keeping them. Ask Him about any items in question. Anoint the object with oil (see part i) and pray over it:

“Lord, we come boldly into your courts with Praise and petition the Throne of Grace.  Lord forgive us for touching any unclean thing, and we renounce in the name of Jesus, any involvement with the occult, or idolatry, or witchcraft, or the New Age. I declare that this object spiritually transitioned into your secret place and now abides under your shadow. I repent on behalf of every sin committed with this object (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). I plead the blood of Jesus over this (jewelry, rock, crystal, ect) and command in the name of Jesus any attachments to it to leave and go. I now speak to every spirit that has taken up habitation in this dwelling place and I take authority over you according to my authority in Jesus Christ. I cast you out, and command you to go to where the Lord Jesus sends you. We anoint this object in the name of the Lord, by faith, and consecrate it to you, inscribing on it the names of your people, your dwelling place. May it serve as a symbol that we are living stones, and we give all honor, and praise, and glory, to the One who made it. Thank you for it’s beauty, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”

I hope this sheds some light on how Christians should not be messing around with stones as omens or good luck charms, healing cards regarding stones, giving them credit for healing powers, or energies, chakra alignment, or especially not invoking spirits into them! Just the other day, a Christian business coach was giving out stones with healing property cards, and I just shake my head. “Forgive us Lord, for we often know not what we do.” Hopefully now you do know, and will not be afraid, but be shrewd, innocent, and discerning! You are a Daughter/Son of the King of the Universe, and heirs with Christ, so take authority and go forth!

Be Salt and Light,
