Q&A: Core Synchronism-Eastern Healing rooted in Yoga

 

QUESTION
I have a christian friend who does massage therapy and has now branched into "core synchronism".  Do you know anything about this and if it's unbiblical and unsafe spiritually?  I would hate to have her doing something that she is unaware is dangerous. Thanks for your ministry.

ANSWER - CORE SYNCHRONISM: And other HEALTH WELLNESS ALTERNATIVES ROOTED IN EASTERN MYSTICISM

Your concerns are justified as "core" healing is rooted in the same eastern mysticism of
Yoga Meditation. The belief is based in the system of holistic (wholism) healing of mind, body, spirit through eastern religiosity. Its worldview teaches that "energy" (demonic powers/forces the Bible teaches we wrestle against Eph.6:12) is able to be drawn upon for the practitioner's healing of body, mind and spirit. The Bible warns us not to contact these lying forces of darkness or to follow "doctrines of demons" 1 Tim.4:1. Also, there is only one healing of our spiritual malady and that is through the Holy Spirit given us through faith in Jesus Christ. Our eternal malady, caused by sin entering the human race is also remedied in our faith in Jesus Christ. The holistic treatment of body, mind and spirit offered by Eastern Mysticism is not a Biblical option.

The Bible's warning not to work with spirits is for our own eternal preservation found only in allowing Jesus Christ to work through us in obedience to His Holy Spirit. Satan robbed the eternal well being of men in the Garden of Eden when he deceived Eve with his lies about his own wisdom and he’s been continuing with his lies ever since.

At the core of Eastern philosophy is the idea that man can bypass the eternal salvation offered through Jesus Christ and instead gain eternal freedom through the practise of spiritual
disciplines such as Yoga meditation. It teaches that one can supposedly "connect" through Yoga meditation to a better wellness or "god-state”, god awareness, Christ consciousness, peace, health, and the list goes on. But recall in Isaiah 14 that Satan said, he "will be like the Most High".
In this sense the devil counterfeits a peace, well-being, god awareness and more as he continues to deceive his followers that they are connecting to a good thing, indeed such practitioners are connecting to the devil’s spirit legion known as "energy" in the East, and today called other names, especially by supposedly scientific research. Science cannot research the unphysical such as mind or spirit. It only offers showings of the spirit world’s influence on the human. The Bible shows such influence to be dangerous. Science is trying to prove otherwise because Satan is the prince of this world (Eph.2:2) and works in the sons of disobedience.

Yoga promises “wellness" in body, mind and spirit as do all the look-alikes of eastern spiritual practises such as "core synchronism" and other health alternatives as explained by Marcia Montenegro. These alternatives to Biblical health teaching lead to ultimate separation from God because the spirit being at the core of this teaching is Satan and the devil himself who Jesus saw cast out of heaven like lightning. (Luke10:18) All who follow the devil’s counterfeits will, like him, be thrown out from God's presence into eternal separation from Him. God said of Satan that “iniquity was found in him" (Eze. 28:15), also known as rebellion and sin. A third of the angels in heaven listened to the devil's twisted lie presented as a type of wisdom, and his counterfeit also deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden, and continues to deceive those today who will not receive a love of the truth and therefore fall for a strong delusion. (2 Thes. 2:10-11).

Satan’s lie is embedded in eastern Yoga meditation and centres around his alternative to the results of eternal damnation. Satan persuaded Eve that surely death wasn’t an option and presents the same lie today, or that death can be bypassed and there is no eternal separation from a loving god, or that eternal judgement and damnation are too far-fetched. According to Biblical teaching as reinforced by Jesus, the opposite is true.

Yoga Hinduism promotes Satan’s lie in the idea of reincarnation which says man passes through endless cycles of birth and death for eternal improvement. Hebrews 9:27 teaches, "it is appointed for men to die ONCE and after this comes judgment." An Eastern worldview has believed Satan's lie (Gen.3:4) in the garden to Eve that "you will not surely die". The creator God's absolute Truth says disobedience to His Authority results in “sin” and brings eternal death:  "the wages of sin is death” (Rom.6:23). Eternal life is given in faith in Jesus Christ not in Eastern mysticism’s procrastination of death - reincarnation. Yoga alternatives, whatever they may be named, and however scientifically presented they are, are specifically designed for connection to Serpent Power/Kundalini (YouTube link) doomed to take the practitioner into "the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels" that Jesus explained in Mat.25:41. Eternal damnation was not intended for man but for Satan and his demons/fallen angels. God designed eternal reconciliation through faith in Jesus Christ. Man has a choice to go with Satan to a place prepared for him or believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and “he will be saved” (Rom.10:9). This is the battle:

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Jesus - Jhn.10:10

This site will tell you more of Dr Randolph Stone a practitioner of Yoga meditation whose philosophy is part of Polarity healing and rooted in "core" healing. All these alternative healings as they’re known for are connected to the worldview of eastern mystical thinking that allows demon spirits to enter the body thereby influencing the mind/soul which in turn has eternal consequences because it separates the practitioner from being obedient to the Bible and able to receive the free gift of salvation in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross for our spiritual and physical betterment.
