Spiritualism in its many forms, be it esotericism, necromancy, shamanism or “simple” dowsing, is on the rise. This development receives particular support from the Roman Catholic Church. Shamanic traditions are enriching.

Spiritualism is becoming socially acceptable

Spiritualism is increasingly on the rise. Dealing with “spirits”, which usually means (supposedly) those who have died, has long since found its way into Christianity. However, the large “Christian” churches do not respond to this development by providing information based on the Gospel, but rather offer a supportive hand. Above all, the Roman Catholic Church, because its dogma of the immortal soul forms the basis for the idea that the dead can still be present in some way.

This thesis was largely adopted by the (formerly) Protestant churches. A direct “descent into hell”, the immediate “ascension” and, for Catholics, the option of purgatory, only worked if, after the person’s death, the soul separated from the body and continued to exist. However, the fact that the Gospel does not provide any information about such visions is ignored here(Info).

“Black Lives Matter” spiritualistic in nature

BLM movement has a shamanic background

Spiritualism, in which the supposed spirits of the deceased play a role, is often not recognizable at first glance. The once hyped “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) movement certainly has the spiritualistic background of paying homage to the deceased ancestors of the black population. On June 2, 2020, supporters of BLM Los Angeles demonstrated in front of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s house. He should cut funding for the police. The background was the murder of the black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota by a police officer a few weeks earlier.

This protest was accompanied by a religious ceremony reminiscent of shamanism and worship of the dead. The co-founder of BLM Los Angeles performed a ritual that included naming the victims who have died so far due to state violence. These should be recalled with this act “to revive their own justice,” according to a contribution from Georgetown University (Source).

“George Floyd. Asé . Philandro Castille. Asé . Andrew Joseph. Asé . Michael Brown. Asé . Erika Garner. Asé . Harriet Tubman. Asé . Malcom X. Asé . Martin Luther King. Asé”, that’s the wording. As each name was spoken, a libation was poured on the floor. The term “Asé” is a Yoruba expression, part of the “Ifa”, a belief and divination system from West Africa. This corresponds to the form of worship.

“Atheist” and yet spiritualist

The BLM movement circulated across the entire planet and by far most of the participants in the protests were probably not aware that a spiritual-shamanic background played a role. A way to place spiritualism in society, even without any propagated religious background. This in turn called into question the substance of a “die-hard atheist” because, after all, he believes that he does not believe in anything religious, let alone take part in religious rites.

It is remarkable that the openly practiced shamanism as part of the BLM movement was only presented by Georgetown University without pointing out the serious confrontation with the gospel. After all, it is the oldest Roman Catholic university in the USA. This university is run by the “Society of Jesus” (Jesuits).

Pope welcomes shamanism

Francis sees the shaman tradition as an enrichment

The Church of Rome obviously has no interest in scolding or even warning against such spiritualistic practices. Even the highest church leader, the Jesuit Pope Francis, openly flirts with spiritualism and shamanism. The pontiff showed this openly during his recent visit to Mongolia. In Mongolia, a country with around four times the area of ​​Germany, there are only around 1,500 baptized Catholics.

Pope Francis met with Buddhists, Shintoists and other religious representatives, as well as shamans. He explained that these meetings were not in contradiction to the proclamation. It served for better understanding within the various religious traditions (Source CNA).

The Church offers “the treasure it has received to every person and every culture, in a spirit of openness and with respectful consideration for what other religious traditions have to offer.” This is done “with humility and in the spirit of service,” said the pontiff. Despite their distinctive features and diversity, religious traditions have “impressive potential for the benefit of society as a whole.”

Pope Francis obviously does not reject the conjuring of spirits, but even sees the practices of shamanism as an enrichment for the common good. Naturally packaged within the framework of “preservation of creation”.

Trance and animal sacrifice

Shamanism

Shamans make contact with spirits in the afterlife

In Mongolia, shamans put themselves into a trance to communicate with “spiritual beings,” according to CNA. Animals are also sacrificed, especially horses. These sacrifices are part of shamanistic rituals. This includes music as well as singing and dancing. The President of the United Union of Shamans of Mongolia, D. Jargalsaikha, puts it succinctly: Mongolian shamans worship “the idols of the eternal sky, Emperor Genghis [Khan], ancestors and parents.” These are practices that were also adopted by the Mahayana Buddhists based in Mongolia (the goal of Buddhism – Info).

Catholics launch campaign to make contact with the afterlife

This idea of ​​spiritualism is not a novelty within the “Christian” churches. As is usually the case, these things start out seemingly harmless and happen step by step. Around 8 years ago, an author on the Swiss “Tages Anzeiger” (Source) wondered about the practices introduced around the Catholic Church. He reports on esoteric and occult ideas within the church and educational institutions. Examples include “shamanic courses” and “esoteric workshops”. The final straw was a planned campaign for All Saints Day. The Catholic meeting place for young adults, “Beyond the Viaduct” in Zurich, hired an esotericist to contact the dead in the afterlife. The author was surprised that no one in the Catholic Church was crying out. Not even Bishop Vitus Huonder made a noise, although according to his statements he was committed to pure doctrine.

Spiritualism has long been non-denominational

Esotericism has long since become ‘normal’

The emerging spiritualism is not unique to the Roman Catholic Church. Even in the (formerly) Protestant environment, belief in the “supersensible” and the possible presence of the dead is growing. The survey institute Pew Research found that 42 percent of evangelicals surveyed in the USA believe that they have already been visited by one of their deceased relatives. In the ranks of Catholics the proportion was around two thirds (Source).

The Gospel about Spiritualism

What does the Bible say about such “conjuring of spirits” and other occult practices, such as shamanism, which Pope Francis described as “enrichment”? God clearly rejects such activities. What’s more, all practices that are now referred to as esotericism, occultism and even shamanism are anathema to God. The following example verses from the Bible are actually self-explanatory.

Leviticus 19:31:
“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 20:6:
“And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”

Deuteronomy 18:10-12:
“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.”

Isaiah 8:19:
“And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?”

1 Chronicles 10:13:
“So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;”

Satanism for the “good of humanity”

With the expanded rapprochement and continued integration of spiritualism, occultism and shamanism, Pope Francis is pushing the teachings of the adversary ever more openly. Already incorporated into the Roman catechism (Info), Satan’s practices and goals are now also being communicated to general humanity. Be it through the church or through “secular” and “woke” action groups, everything packaged as the “good for humanity” and “preservation of creation”.
