The New Age Movement (NAM) is both a religious and a social movement.
In fact, Western culture is currently experiencing a phenomenal,
spiritual, ideological, and sociological shift. It is a religious world
view that is alien and hostile to Christianity. It’s a
multi-focused, multi-faceted synthesis, in varying degrees, of the Far Eastern, mystical religions, mainly Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Western Occultism, adapted to and influenced by Western, materialistic culture. It sometimes appears in secularized forms.
The New Age Movement consists of an incredibly huge and well organized network consisting of thousands of groups, trusts, foundations, clubs, lodges, and religious groups whose goal and purpose is to prepare the world to enter the coming “Age Of Aquarius.”
The major goal of the New Age Movement is to bring peace to the world upon entering the Age of Aquarius. This will be accomplished primarily through the leadership of “the Christ” (also known as “Lord Maitreya”), who will supposedly come to teach us to live at peace with each other. Some of the other stated goals of the movement are to establish a World Food Authority, World Water Authority, World Economic Order, and an entirely New World Order. It should be noted here that one of the requirements for a person to enter the New Age is that he or she will have to take what is known as a “Luciferic Initiation,” a kind of pledge of allegiance to the Christ of the New Age and to the New World Order. The primary goals of the movement then, are to prepare the world to receive the Christ and to enter the Age of Aquarius, thus establishing the New World Order.
Millions of people attend rock concerts not realizing they are worshiping the devil aka Satan aka Lucifer, Look at the raised up hands of those adoring the musician(s) representing Satan's kingdom.

I personally got involved in the New Age Movement while I lived in Los Angeles - I encourage you to read my story on the page entitled "About the Author, Part I". I delved into the New Age with my whole being and yet there were levels I did not penetrate into in that dark and confusing metaphysical world. I thank God for that because I am not sure if I could've ever made it out if I had immersed myself any further than I did. And now that it is 20+ years later and the New Age movement has spread all over the United States and permeated into and saturated all kinds of literature, science, art and entertainment, I am very concerned for the minds of the American people! (not to mention their souls!!!) Especially now that I see there is something called Quantum Physics New Age because the youth are going to grab this up like it's part of real science. And when I see a movie trailer like this one to "What The Bleep Do We Know?", and hear all of the false information being presented and acted out in a movie followed by that fatal question: "How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?", I just want to cry over how many minds will be ruined into the insanity of the New Age!
You may have noticed Indians standing in the background of Marlee Matlin in the film trailer and that's because Native American Indian spiritism is a kin to the New Age. Here is an excerpt from an old 2003 article from Integrative Health & Healing that is using Quantum Physics to explain Shamanic healing used by the Native American Indians. I won't copy the whole article, just the introduction:
Western cultures have always dismissed shamanic healing and other native medicine powers as "primitive superstition," mainly because we had no explanation for how shamans do what they do. Shamanic healing was the main form of healing used by the American Indians, who called upon helping spirits to cure the patient. Though there are few native shamans left in North America, 200 years ago upwards of 30% of the population had some form of spirit-enabled medicine power.
How does shamanic healing
work? Let's start with some recent developments in quantum physics, which have
finally provided us with answers.
You still may be scratching your head asking yourself, "What is Quantum Physics?" Well, below is what a website called Abundance and Happiness.com had to say. (This website is encouraging this type of scientific spiritualism, which of course I do not condone, but for reference have copied over their introduction)
Quantum Physics Demystifies The Process Of Creation and Reveals The Simplicity of Conscious, Intentional and Purposeful (as Well as Unconscious and Unintentional) Manifestation
Although you may or may not yet be aware of how a 2 word phrase such as Quantum Physics can enhance EVERY aspect of your life, it CAN and in fact WILL...should you allow it to.
If you will "allow it" and read along for just a bit, you'll SEE just how profoundly and transformationally true that is.
What exactly is Quantum Physics? Basically, it's a highly specialized (and seemingly weird) form of science that, unlike Newtonian physics, studies, explores and explains how everything in the tangible world comes into existence. Quantum Physicists (the really smart and sometimes insightful guys who make the science of quantum physics possible) basically explore the nature of reality beginning at the subatomic (unseen) level.
The fact is, as quantum physicists have discovered, it determines EVERY aspect of reality, including but not limited to ALL aspects of your life.
They certainly don't have it anywhere close to fully "figured out." But what they have figured out and know, is where ALL physical things, whether events, conditions, and circumstances as well as everything in the entire Universe stem from. Put simply, quantum physics breaks physical things down into their purest and most basic form, attempting to discover the Ultimate Source from where they (which includes everything) are derived.
on the surface look, from a strictly intellectual vantage point, with regard to
what Quantum Physics is and what quantum physicists do, may and perhaps does,
sound a bit ho hum or perhaps even, really complex. But when you become aware
of and combine the underlying conclusions that Quantum Physics reveals, with
what the mystics, sages, masters and philosophers since antiquity have to say
about life and how our lives come to be the kind and quality that they are,
(whatever that entails) is not only PROFOUNDLY exciting, it CAN prove to be the
catalyst that transforms your entire life.
There is even a website called Quantum Yoga and this is what they have to say:
YOGA AND QUANTUM PHYSICS
Why Quantum Yoga? Quantum physics has made incredible discoveries that echo the ancient insights of yoga. The cross-pollination that has occurred in the fields of science and metaphysics in the past years serves the individual with inspiration and empowerment. Quantum physics has proven that energy and matter are not so easily divisible, that in fact energy is more substantial than matter itself. In yoga practice we actually experience this insight first-hand. The body is not merely flesh and bone; it is imbued with prana, life-force. All mental fluctuations have a direct effect on this pranic flow, which in turn manifests as physical sensations and disease. We can revert this process by addressing body, breath and mind in a holistic manner.
If you want to get born again in Christ Jesus, please take this time now to talk to God. You can say something like this: God I know I am a sinner and I need a Savior and I believe Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. I believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin mother, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and that He lived a sinless life because He was God in the flesh, and that He was crucified as the once for all sacrifice for mankind's sins. I believe he was buried and rose from the grave and was witnessed alive before ascending to heaven where He now sits on the throne as King of Kings. I repent of my sins and accept Jesus' gift of salvation today and I ask Him to be my Savior and Lord. I ask the Holy Spirit to come and make a dwelling in my heart and to lead me into all righteousness. Thank you God for hearing my prayer and for sending your Son to save me by dying in my place at the Cross so I can be in the family of God. And Father, I understand that while I am saved by my confession of faith, it is also Your will for me to get water baptized to show my private confession in a public way, and so I ask you to lead me to the church or baptismal situation you have for me so I can get baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen!
