My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

As a spiritual counsellor, I’m honoured my work is shared worldwide via satellite TV, radio, books, magazines and so on. My mother and I were taught Lucifer is god when involved in new age spiritualism. I now expose the Globalist Agenda – the elite NWO cabal, from my inside knowledge of Luciferianism and Theosophy.

‘Laura educates people, from personal experience, on the dangers of New Age, Witchcraft, Occult and their Luciferian links to the New World Order’s global spiritual agenda, etc.’


LIVE on Revelation TV – satellite TV – Europe, USA and beyond. Also online

As my story was recently published in Premier Christianity I’m resharing this previous post for those new to my blog. It’s a great honour to be featured in the UK’s leading Christian magazine and I am so grateful to God for this opportunity to share His love and power with others.

My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

 (Taken from the About page).

We sincerely hope to humbly contribute to the journeys of those on a spiritual quest!

Do you enjoy ghost hunting, spirit communication or the paranormal? Maybe you explore esoteric or metaphysical interests, eastern mystical practices, or evolving spiritualities?

Perhaps you follow an ancient path based on Paganism? Do you practice Magick, Wicca, Neo-New Age, or the Occult?

As an open-minded seeker of truth, please consider hearing from myself and others steeped in such lifestyles. Discover secrets we experienced via supernatural realms and where it eventually led us.

When I was a Spiritualist, I was taught the New Age agenda – to recruit masses globally to Luciferianism and the New World Order. In those days, I fully agreed with such plans. Now, I’m aware of the truth behind it all! As supernatural whistleblowers, we expose inside secrets from top spiritual leaders.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Unfortunately, those like us are not often seen in the popular media. The world tends only to hear the one point of view, which is of course biased reporting! A spiritual form of propaganda is occurring. Even within scientific communities, they claim to portray ALL theories of any topic of debate. But with ‘spirit communication’, our ‘theory’ is rarely given air time!

You may suspect this is a conspiracy theory, so please use your critical thinking skills. Research online for hard evidence to back up our claims!




In 1996, I began to disclose my own private experiences. From 2008, I’ve been very privileged to share regularly on satellite TV and radio shows, broadcast over Europe and USA. Some of them are included in the playlist below.

The below interviews on Truth Frequency Radio, including The Kev Baker Show and other shows remain a few of my personal favourites. Namely because they air on Truth Frequency Radio – a very popular alternative network with a large global following of spiritual seekers.

Some of my TV interviews were requested by and aired on various Christian and secular TV channels across Asia, Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

I also host a weekly talk show on Eternal Radio. On ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell.’ I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true stories, eg, Ex Mediums, Ex Psychics, Ex Witches, Ex Pagans, etc. Some of them are authors and some have also shared their stories on TV.

My story has been featured in various Christian, secular and Spiritualist magazine articles, newspapers, a site of the leading Occult awareness ministry of 30 years in the UK, one of the leading Occult awareness sites in USA, other well known ministry websites and blogs. (Most of these people listed, have appeared on TV – please see the links).

Other overseas ministries have translated it into, for example, Croatian, Danish, Hindi, Spanish and Portuguese for magazines and TV. See link for translations.

In 2013, it was included in two new school books, now being used in secular schools across Australia and New Zealand.

It was an honour when EX Satanist, Jeff Harshbarger, asked me to write a chapter for his 2nd book ‘Dancing With The Devil,’ published in USA, by Charisma House, 2012. (I wrote a review for his first book). Jeff has been a guest on many Christian TV and radio programs in the USA and beyond.

Laura Maxwell’s Story.

‘What New Age Spiritualism Means To Me Now.’

Supernatural phenomena interested me since childhood. I loved reading children’s books containing ‘ghost stories’, or watching TV programs about ‘ghosts’. If Harry Potter had been written then, I’m sure it would have been one of my favourites.

A few psychic episodes as a child added to the intrigue I felt. My mother’s uncle lead a Spiritualist Church and was also high up in Freemasonry. Mum had also experienced psychic events since her childhood, but didn’t pursue it seriously until later. By the time I began Secondary School, she felt ready to explore further. Once, when walking her dogs in the park, a Medium approached. He saw her potential as a Medium and invited her to a local Spiritualist Church in Glasgow, Scotland.

Very quickly, Mum became totally engrossed by the supernatural. As a new member of the Spiritualist Church, she attended Sunday services, mid week psychic development groups, Yoga classes, etc. She shared everything she learned with me. I also became fascinated. Her heart’s desire was to train in Mediumship. The other Mediums encouraged this, asking her to join an Open Circle and to meditate with them to channel ‘spirits of the deceased’. Mum was keen to develop her abilities of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience and to learn from other Mediums.

Every time Mum booked a Private Sitting for a Life Reading with a resident or visiting Medium, she’d buy a recording of the session and we’d listen to it later. It amazed me that a half-hour recording could contain so much explicit communication from alleged ‘spirits’. Specific facts were relayed about our lives, in minute detail. Precise names, places and dates were often given. It was obvious the Mediums weren’t charlatans, falling upon names by sheer chance. They accurately described the physical appearance, personalities and even repeated common phrases of our apparent dead relatives, as they conversed with spirit entities.

I also joined the Spiritualist Church in Glasgow. Mum and I devoured mystical books on Yoga, opening the chakras, Crystal Healing, Reincarnation, Alternative Therapies, etc. Attending New Age Centres and Psychic Fairs, we absorbed as much information as we could to help in our ‘spiritual enlightenment’. With our passion for environmental and conservation concerns, social justice and international peace, we gladly participated in attempting to heal people and animals, through either contact or distant psychic healing.

We also read books on positive thinking. A favourite was, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, by Norman Vincent Peale, a 33rd degree Free Mason, who also believed in Clairvoyance, claiming to see his dead father at meetings.

Going Deeper

Laura's season as a goth

Laura’s season as a goth

Eventually, we attended Transfiguration Sessions. Mum developed in the area of Automatic Writing. Mediums predicted I’d become an author on behalf of Spirit Guides and a Psychic Artist, drawing portraits of ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ for clients. I very briefly experimented with Kirlian Photography; using infra red film I captured images of ectoplasm as it formed.

Over the next 10 – 15 years, we’d often hear of Mediums who could no longer control when spirits spoke to, or through them. Many Mediums had nervous breakdowns. Some attacked people claiming their Spirit Guides had forced them to, or were admitted to psychiatric wards.

We heard reports of ‘poltergeist activity’ in Medium’s homes. At first, we accepted explanations that mischievous or obnoxious spirits could sometimes come through and it was a potential hazard of the job. But when it happened to us, it became intolerable and impossible to function properly.

Our beloved friends, the other Psychics and Mediums, kindly tried, but failed to free our home from spirits. The spirits spoke to Mum constantly, giving her no rest, depriving her of sleep, attacking her physically, chapping loudly from within wardrobes, slamming all the doors, etc.

On one of the occasions when they forced her into a trance against her will, she was frying food. When she came out of trance, the kitchen was consumed by fire. I arrived home after the Fire Brigade had extinguished it, just before it spread to other rooms. We all realized Mum, our dogs and cats could have been killed. One afternoon, Mum’s elderly Aunt who had also visited Spiritualist Churches, felt invisible hands grab her and throw her down our stairs. Her wrist was broken. Another day, while approaching shops, I watched in horror as Mum was lifted from the ground and catapulted from the pavement, landing on the bonnet of a passing car. This particular incident happened more than once.

Hellish Encounters

Naturally, we decided to withdraw from Spiritualism and kindly asked our ‘Spirit Guides’ to leave. To our shock, they laughed and insulted us. They began to physically attack us. This was deeply perplexing, as they’d provided guidance and kindness for many years! It became obvious they’d clearly deceived us, pretending to be benevolent, when in reality they were wicked all along.

It dismayed us that all the Spiritualist Mediums and Psychics we knew and dearly loved, had clearly been deceived too. After all, it was they who had introduced us to those spirits. They’d also assumed such ‘Spirit Guides’ and ‘friends’ were genuine.

However, the biggest shock came when even our supposed ‘dead relatives’ turned against us too! They also mocked and hit us. The spirits warned we couldn’t leave the occult, as we had unknowingly granted them control from the first day we invited them into our lives! It became clear to Mum and I there was something dangerous and deceptive in Spiritualism and forms of spirit communication, if even the Mediums who had brought our fake ‘spirit friends’ to us had not discerned their true spiritual identity.

A Christian Encounter

‘You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’, John 8:32

Susan, a Christian I’d met in a Psychology Tutorial, at university, invited me to her Pentecostal Church. She explained other Psychics who had experienced similar tragedies were set free from spiritual attacks when they accepted the Biblical Jesus Christ as their Saviour, (not the New Age false Christ).

I did feel an atmosphere and presence in her church I’d never known and I hungered for it. When they prayed for healing and spoke in tongues, I senses instantly they had a supernatural power, but I wasn’t sure what it was! To me, Jesus was just a Healer and Medium.

That night when I returned home, the spirits were furious that I’d visited the Pentecostal Church. I was sure they’d try to kill me. (To learn more of those few days, please watch my TV interviews!)

I cried out to God in sheer desperation. I asked if He was real, to please speak to me through a bible I found. I had a divine revelation the bible was totally true, so renouncing Spiritualism, I came to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I received Him as my Saviour and asked Him to cleanse me from all sin. Finally, I had saw the light. I had found truth. I had found Love Himself! Much to my own surprise, I had become a Christian, something I thought I’d never do! Never say never folks!

The very next morning, a Romany Gypsy appeared at my door. I’d been thinking about her for hours and now there she stood! She said she had got born again and that Jesus had sent her to tell me I was now on the right path! I began attending the church I’d just visited.

A Darker Tragedy Strikes

Just a few months later, during my 2nd year at university, Mum’s health deteriorated & her ‘Spirit Guides’ became more violent and even threatened to control her and use her to kill people. Mum’s doctor couldn’t accept poltergeist activity and was sadly diagnosed as Schizophrenic. Mum was detained in a Psychiatric Hospital, much to the utter shock of my Mum and myself.

Although my Mum gave her heart to Jesus a few months later, the Pentecostal Church I’d joined had no experience at that point, of helping people like Mum. At that time, they didn’t have the Deliverance Ministry. As a baby Christian myself, I didn’t yet know there were Christians who could’ve cast those demons out of my Mum in Jesus Name. After months of heavy sedation, the psychiatrists discharged her, but when she returned home, she endured further harassment from spirits. Sadly, the church I belonged to didn’t yet have experience of casting demons out of homes or people.

My pastor was young and inexperienced. He assumed mum and I were just over imaginative or mentally ill. So, we received no help. To my utter shock and dismay, my mother committed suicide.

Although not rare for someone to do … over the past couple of decades I’ve heard of many around the world, affected by the New Age or Occult have been in psychiatric wards or killed themselves. Therefore, I feel it emphasizes the crucial importance for Christians to embrace the Deliverance Ministry, more commonly known as Exorcism, and become God’s instruments to release freedom to such tortured people in Jesus Name.

(Over the years as a Christian, I have been honoured and delighted that the Holy Spirit has used me to see people & homes be set free from demonic harassment/poltergeist type activity, etc). “Greater is He (Jesus), that is in you; than he (satan) that is in the world.”

My chains are gone!

Soon after, I found another Pentecostal Church. It was experienced in Deliverance prayer – casting out demons. The co-Pastor, visited my mum’s home, successfully cleansing it the first time they prayed. At the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all the spirits left and never returned. Praise God! Later, I sold Mum’s home without worrying the new tenants would be harassed.

The Pentecostal Church I attend, doesn’t serve up dead religious traditions or control. Instead it’s lively, loving and joyful. Members are trained by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of the future. Minds and bodies are healed and other miracles, signs and wonders occur. Actually, in a couple of years I saw more people healed in Pentecostal Churches than I ever saw in over ten years at Spiritualist meetings.

Deception Exposed

When I became a Christian, even before I had read the Biblical warnings of the Occult in Deuteronomy chapter 18, I suddenly saw the truth. I instinctively realized what had happened. The missing piece of the jigsaw slipped into place. When our ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ began to attack us, it indicated those lying evil spirits had deceived us, merely impersonating our loved ones. It made complete sense when Christians explained from the bible, it’s impossible for dead souls to return to talk with us, as they remain in heaven or hell for eternity.

Also, the bible describes spirits are evil ‘fallen angels,’ or demons. They’ve existed since before creation. They possess vast psychic knowledge of our families & historical figures down the generations. Like ‘shape shifters’ from movies, they can easily disguise their evil form to pose as our ‘deceased family,’ to mimic ‘Spirit Guides,’ or any famous celebrity that ever lived. With their supernatural powers they can perform many false miracles. Through hypnosis etc, they can even produce false visions of your ‘former lives’.

They are masters of disguise. The Bible says that entities who work through Witches, Mediums, Ghost Hunters, etc, are called ‘familiar spirits’. They are psychic and very familiar with how all your ancestors looked and spoke, as they were on the earth at the same time. Thus, these entities can impersonate them perfectly. The Hebrew word for familiar spirits actually translates as ‘demon,’ evil spirit.

This is emphasised in passages such as 2 Corinthians 11 to 14 : “And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” The evil spirits working through Spiritualism, Ghost Hunting, etc, are evil demons. They serve Satan to deceive precious Mediums and others, appearing as dead relatives, Spirit Guides, ascended masters, goddesses, Reiki healing guides, aliens, fairies and so on. (Please see my article on how to ‘Test The Spirits’, or watch my TV programs on this crucial topic.)

The counterfeit nature of spirits makes sense, because many top Mediums even claim that Lucifer is god and the source of all psychic powers! (Benjamine Creme, David Spangler, Madam Helena Blavatsky, etc). They believe Lucifer is still an angel of light; god; the Saviour, and that he did not fall and become Satan, as the Bible states. Thus, Luciferianism is one of the roots of the New Age and Spiritualism. Madam Helena Blavatsky, a self proclaimed Luciferian Medium, was called the ‘mother of the New Age movement’. (Please see my article or watch my TV programs on this topic.)

Before I left the Occult, I was unaware the Bible lovingly advises in 1 John 4 verse 1 to 3 : “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God … every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh is not of God … And this is the spirit of the Antichrist …”

Please see my note with directions on how to Test The Spirits, in the menu bar at the top. I’ve known countless numbers who have challenged Guides and other spirits, to show their true identity, in Jesus Christ’s name. Often they scream as they reveal their true evil form.

A Crucial Observation

Since I left Spiritualism and became a Christian, I have never been contacted by any spirit claiming to be a ‘dead relative’ or ‘Spirit Guide’! All such supernatural activity stopped, when I found the truth, that they were demons impersonating family or spiritual beings! You’d think, if they were truly real, they’d still try to ‘contact’ me!

Sharing With Others

About Jesus

When a Spiritualist, I’d regarded Jesus as just a cosmic force; part of the universal consciousness, a reincarnation of another god or great Healing Medium. Since my conversion in 1994, I’ve met, spoken to & read of many Ex Psychics, Ex Gypsies, Ex Mediums, Ex Witches, Ex Luciferians, and even Ex Satanists. They all discovered the entities of their ‘Spirit Guides’, ‘dead relatives’ or ‘goddesses’, were not who they claimed to be. These people were also set free from demonic attack after receiving Christ into their lives & receiving His overwhelming love and deliverance into spiritual freedom, (Exorcism).

Two successful Glasgow Mediums, Sadie Bryce and Geordie Aitken also became Christians. Sadie went to the same Spiritualist Church I did. She spoke of her occult past in BBC programs and an audio recording. Paul Watson wrote a book detailing Geordie’s experience. As Christians, Sadie and I wrote to each other and I met Geordie several times, discovering we all had been misled by deceiving spirits in the same ways. Geordie himself lost friends to demonically induced suicide. He spoke on my behalf at my mum’s funeral.

Jesus Christ healed me of a phobia of heights and physical conditions including Fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. He has given me joy and peace I simply never knew existed. His very tangible Presence of pure love is more real than any powerful encounter I experienced within Spiritualism, New Age or Mystical practises. I am forever grateful to Him for transforming my life and I give Him all the glory.

I now host a weekly show on Eternal Radio, called ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell,’

On it, I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true conversion stories. My guests include former Mediums, Psychics, Witches, Pagans, Satanists and so on.

Some of them are authors or have shared their stories on TV and radio.

Since 2008, I’ve shared my life story, on satellite TV, radio, in conferences and churches. I also write for magazines. I don’t receive payment for this. I’m delighted and blessed to hear from people worldwide. They share they’ve also been saved out of the New Age and Occult – by the transforming, mighty power of our loving Saviour and Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. Some say it was my testimony that helped lead them to Jesus. Hallelujah!

A Final Word

I continuously hear from more people who are turning away from Spiritualist Meetings, Tarot Card Parties, Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and all other spirit empowered practises.

A few years ago, I completed a testimony-based novel, containing some detail of events Mum, our friends and I experienced within the occult.

It also contains some wonderful encounters with Jesus and angels, very different from what we experienced in Spiritualism.

As it’s self published, it’s only available directly from me, but should be on Amazon, by mid 2017!

Church of Satan: ‘Satanists Embrace What Halloween Has Become’.

Church of Satan: ‘Satanists Embrace Halloween’.

The below statements released by The Church Of Satan, imply Satanists don’t perform evil rituals or worship Satan as a real entity. However, this isn’t the full story, as there are many branches and subcategories of Satanism who literally do.  For examples, please see links below this article.

Halloween Parade -New York’s Greenwich Village

NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 31: Revelers make their way along Sixth Avenue during the 43rd annual Village Halloween Parade, October 31, 2016 in New York City. Thousands of people are expected to attend as the parade travels up Sixth Avenue through the West Village. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

“Satanists embrace what this holiday [Halloween] has become,” reads the Church of Satan’s “Holidays” section of their F.A.Q. page.

According to,

“[Halloween] originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating sweet treats.”

The Church of Satan, on their “official” home page, says it was “[f]ounded on April 30, 1966 c.e. by Anton Szandor LaVey” and is “the first above-ground organization in history openly dedicated to the acceptance of Man’s true nature—that of a carnal beast, living in a cosmos that is indifferent to our existence.” To the Satanist, “all Gods are fiction.” Satanists “are thus [their] own ‘Gods,’ and as beneficient ‘deities,’” claim they “can offer love to those who deserve it and deliver [their] wrath (within reasonable limits) upon those who seek to cause us—or that which we cherish—harm.”

But what does the Church of Satan have to say about the holiday of Halloween? The following is the Church of Satan’s complete answer to the question “Is Halloween important to Satanists?”:

“We see this holiday as the night when the mundane folk try to reach down inside and touch the ‘darkness’ which for Satanists is a daily mode of existence. Particularly in the United States, Halloween is a time for celebrating monster films, wearing costumes of a macabre nature, and evoking the thrill of ‘fun fear.’ Children (of all ages) can indulge their fantasies by donning costumes that allow for intense role-playing and the release of their ‘demonic cores,’ the parts of their personalities often hidden from their friends, co-workers and families.

“Though there are traditions making this an occasion for recalling the dead, it has been popularized as a time to play with what historically were fears directed towards what were thought to be unquiet spirits of the departed. And the grand traditional question ‘Trick or treat?’ has become a means for fulfilling an indulgence in sweets, without the need to resort to the optional coercion.

“Satanists embrace what this holiday has become, and do not feel the need to be tied to ancient practices. This night, we smile at the amateur explorers of their own inner darkness, for we know that they enjoy their brief dip into the pool of the ‘shadow world.’ We encourage their tenebrous fantasies, the candied indulgence, and the wide-ranging evocation of our aesthetics (while tolerating some of the chintzy versions), even if it is but once a year. For the rest of the time, when those not of our meta-tribe shake their heads in wonder at us, we can point out that they may find some understanding by examining their own All Hallows Eve doings, but we generally find it simpler to just say: ‘Think of The Addams Family and you’ll begin to see what we’re about.’”

Laura Constantino Leogrande’s recent online public comment to myself, Laura Maxwell.

Laura Constantino Leogrande, ”Laura Maxwell, I didn’t know what was going on with my family until it was too late. Thank you for freeing me of these evil spirits. What happened to me and my daughter were directly related to my late brother’s involvement in the paranormal.”

Ghost Adventures

Mark Constantino, a famous Ghost Hunter from the world famous and hugely popular Zac Bagan’s TV Show Ghost Adventures, and his wife Debby both came to extremely tragic deaths, as covered by the global media.

The Late Constantinos

Laura Constantino Leogrande, the late Mark’s surviving sister, contacted me last year, requesting help.

Deliverance Minister Michael Cummins on Revelation TV.

It was a sheer joy for me, as an ex spiritualist, and my friend and radio co-host, ex ghost hunter Dana Emanuel, to assist my friend, the radio and tv presenter Michael Cummins, in deliverance ministry, to ensure Laura Constantino and her home got freed from demons. Demons that had literally physically tormented her and her precious late daughter Samantha for years.

”I’ll never forget our Skype calls and below radio interview with dear Laura and her brother Gary. I’m so, so grateful to the Lord for freeing her.”


Keith and Sandra Johnson well known globally within the paranormal community are good Facebook friends of mine. Keith told me that he recently shared our interview with Laura to some paranormal Facebook groups! (SEE BELOW).


Here’s our revealing and deeply sensitive interview with Laura Constantino Leogrande and her brother Gary Constantino, for anyone who hasn’t heard it yet.

I do pray many precious ghost hunters and viewers of ghost hunting shows around the world will hear it.

So a Christian book’s authors are thanking New Agers and a heretic? The list of names includes thanks to the following:

At least 3 people who had nothing to do with the Enneagram: Evagrius Ponticus from the 4th century and Ramon Llull from the 13th century (see CANA article on No Christian Origins for the Enenagram at end) and Ignatius. The Enenagram as a supposed personality assessment did not even exist until the 1960s.

Occultist Oscar Ichazo (one person whose mother is a former follower and who grew up at Arica where Ichazo had his school called his work the “black arts”)

New Age psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo

Heretic Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr’s student and mentoree, Suzanne Stabile

Several New Agers such as:
Don Riso & Russ Hudson (co-founders of the Enneagram Institute)
Helen Palmer, noted New Age author
Kathleen Hurley
*Sandra Maitri,
**Roxanne Howe-Murphy
+Dr. David Daniels (worked with New Ager Helen Palmer)
Ginger Lapid-Bogda
Beatrice Chestnut (student of New Agers Helen Palmer and Dr. David Daniels)

Marcia Montenegro of CANA: So a Christian book is admitting the Enneagram is spiritual. But the issue is that it’s not Christian spirituality and cannot be because there is nothing Christian about the Enneagram. The spirituality of the Enneagram has always been occultic and New Age spirituality long before it got into the church. You cannot just slap on a Christian label to make it Christian. Moreover, it has no validity anyway as a personality tool It is a New Age design and like anything New Age that claims to dissect you, has no value, especially for a Christian.

*Sandra Maitri was a member of the first group of students to whom the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo presented the enneagram system in the U.S (Info from Amazon)

**Roxanne Howe-Murphy runs The Deep Living Institute: “I’ve been drawn to the preciousness of this human experiment, to experiencing the Sacred in all that exists, and to exploring the great Mysteries of life. After a substantial period of ‘forgetting who I am,’ I was blessed to reconnect with my deeper guidance and discover both the profound power and practicality of presence.” – Except from her website at

+ Dr. David Daniels: “Essence is that which underlies all external manifestations” — from website at

++ Ginger Lapid-Bogda: “I’m more universal in approach, without an affinity to a particular religious practice. Maybe the closest would be Hindu, and though I’ve been to India and spent time at an Ashram. My spirituality is more like a universal consciousness.” From interview at

Marcia Montenegro: Sandra Maitri was one of Naranjo’s first students — see list in OP. I looked up most of the names and already knew some.

  • Don Veinot Joy has a copy of Father Mitch Pacwa’s 1992 book, Catholics and the New Age which has a subtitle, “How Good People are Being Drawn into Jungian Psychology, the Enneagram, and the Age of Aquarius” In chapter 4 he talks about it and the claim at the time was that Sufi’s had invented it but kept it a secret until they revealed it to the Western world through Ochazo. It seems as he went through the course at that time part of the process was Yoga and working to empty one’s mind of all thought. “We lay on the floor and imagined that we were burning logs turning into ashes. The goal was to let go of thought and identity and attain, ‘no-mind'” (pg. 98)
  • Ron Huggins Don Veinot. He actually was one of the guys who taught it to Richard Rohr.
  • Marcia Montenegro Mitch Pacwa has an article on the Enneagram in the CRI Journal.
  • Don Veinot In his 1992 book he is trying to warn Catholics about the dangers and occultism in that and other New Age things which were in the Catholic church at that time. Not sure at what point he intersected with Rohr.
  • Ron Huggins Pacwa writes:

    “Bob Ochs, after that course, came and taught it at our theologate, to people like Pat O’Leary from Cleveland, Colly Moloney in Canada, and later on, Gerry Hare who taught Richard Rohr. And I, who’d also taught Richard Rohr the Enneagram (before Gerry Hare taught him)—we began to teach the Enneagram course, and it has spread from these people in that course at the Jesuit School of Theology.”

  • Ron Huggins The book you mention is pretty good. I have it.
  • Marcia Montenegro Yep, and Rohr won’t say Pacwa taught him since Pacwa has renounced and exposed the Enneagram.
  • Ron Huggins Yes, so far as I’ve seen, he credits Hare, but not Pacwa.
  • Marcia Montenegro Ron Huggins did you notice all the New Agers they thanked? I found 9 and I didn’t even look every name up. One I didn’t list is a mystical nun.
  • Ron Huggins Yes! It was striking. The problem is that those names are unfamiliar to Christians generally.
  • Marcia Montenegro Right. And I doubt most Christians know that the Enneagram Inst. is New Age. They probably think it’s some kind of academic or psychological organization.
  • Ron Huggins And its interesting how the Christian books describe the early players. Gurdjieff was an “Eastern Orthodox man.” Orchizo and Naranjo were “psychologists”.
  • Don Veinot Ron Huggins Ah, that is a different book than we have by Pacwa. Interesting admission.

Why We Should Not Initiate Communication with Angels, Including Michael by Mark Hunnemann: PLUS Interview with Laura Maxwell.

Why We Should Not Initiate Communication with Angels, Including Michael.

By Reverend Mark Hunnemann.

I chose this title carefully because I could have entitled it: ”Why we should not communicate with angels”. However, I want to leave open the possibility that holy angels occasionally do initiate communication with humans today. All biblical theologians agree that overt angelic activity accelerates at crucial junctures in the flow of redemptive history (e.g. Announcement of Christ’s birth)

As we’ll see, the word “initiate” is key in this discussion.   Furthermore, it would seem that disguised interaction with humans is a rather frequent angelic tactic (Hebrews 13:2), as well as their general call to be ministering spirits to us. (see Hebrews 1:14) So, please don’t think I am in any way minimising the reality and frequency of their more covert role as our helpers/protectors, and occasional overt appearances. But, there is a big difference between that and OUR initiating contact with angels.

Every day I receive emails which advertise a book, services, etc. for how to communicate with an angel, or our guardian angel. I must confess that this is hot stuff. I mean, who would not be amazed and wowed by a visitation by an angel…especially if they had personal guidance for us? Pretty sensational, and we’re drawn toward that. I get it. But is this practice good, biblical and safe? No, on all three.

There is an explosion of books, and magazine articles dealing with this subject. In addition, in paranormal circles, some folks are attempting to reach angels. I know one man who will not try to reach the dead, but insists that he has been very successful in initiating communication with angels via traditional EVP methods. And he claims it’s biblical (more of that in a moment).

Moreover, in some churches there have been prophetic utterances that claim to be from an angel or a deceased preacher….or even Isaiah!  For the sake of time, we’ll focus on the claims for angelic utterances. The point is that popular culture, including the church, is getting inundated and fascinated with the angelic. And so, it is only appropriate that we ask: is it proper/biblical to initiate communication with angels? It’s sort of like an angelic form of EVP’s, which is precisely what one man I know claims is the voice he hears is. I have no idea how many EVP’s  are coming out these days that claim angelic authority, but my guess is that its growing in number. Satan is an opportunist. But whether the sought after angelic reply is audible or inaudible makes no difference—it is attempted communication with angels, and a possible reply.

So, the need is there for some clear guidance on this matter—one that takes into consideration all the salient data regarding angels. I may not answer some of the questions you may have regarding angels, but my focus is narrow: should we initiate communication with angels?

There are about 300 explicit references to angels in the bible…according to my concordance. Let us return to the man who claims that he not only gets EVP’s from angels, but that the bible warrants it. He cited verses like the angel talking to Mary, and the angels announcing the resurrection. But my point to him, which he seemed to have missed, was this: there is not a single case in the gospels or Acts where the Apostles (or even Jesus, as acting in His role as being the ideal Man) INITIATED communication with angel/s.

Nobody disputes that at crucial junctures of redemptive history angelic communication increased with God’s people. However, my point is simple—if Jesus and the apostles NEVER initiated communication with angels, then surely that is instructive. Authoritatively instructive because truth is communicated via Jesus’ actions, as well as His words—or lack of them in this case. Just because there is no explicit command not to initiate communication with angels, does not mean the bible is silent on the matter.

Surely the life and practice of Jesus and His apostles is as authoritative in its instruction as explicit teaching. This is especially true when we see that the gospels and the book of Acts have numerous accounts of angelic visitation, but none were instigated by a person. It was always God Almighty sending His holy angels to do His bidding on behalf of His Bride. Always and everywhere in the bible, angels are the initiators in angelic/human encounters.

I could stop there and that should be sufficient to show that we have no business contacting angels. But let me add this. Why does God detest our using horoscopes? Because He created the planets and stars for us to enjoy, and to distinguish between night and day/seasons, etc. To look to the stars and planets, which are part of God’s creation, for advice, instead of looking to the Creator for guidance and wisdom (re: relationships, love, decisions, job, and so on) is idolatrous and grieves God.

The same with angels—they are creatures and should not be sought out to give us wisdom, protection, and guidance. Why look to an angel when we can talk to our Heavenly Father? Again, it is idolatrous. Or to put it another way, we have the Bible and the Holy Spirit within us to guide and direct us in the paths of righteousness. Is not talking to angels a slight on the Holy Spirit? The classic text in Proverbs 3:5-6 needs to soak into our hearts and minds, and realize that God is jealous that we not only not look to our own insights, but also not the insights of other finite, fallible creatures, like angels.

Let me ask a simple question: WHY do you even want to talk to angels? For guidance…or insight…protection..or an angels perspective on the spirit realm…or being honest, just because it’s cool and fun? Doing an ‘end-run’ around God to attain these goals is unacceptable, even idolatrous. Do you see the prophets, apostles or Jesus communicating with angels for this purpose? NO! Then it is forbidden to us as well.

Switching gears, attempted communication with angels may open you to demonic oppression, just as trying to converse with the dead will do the same. Demons excel at mimicry…including mimicking angels (2 Corinthians 11:14). Unlawful communication with spirits is forbidden, and exposes you to demonic oppression. If you do receive a reply, then I’m fairly confident it is NOT an angel.

It may appear or sound like a holy angel, but its not. Having opened the door to the demonic, then you are communicating with the demonic. The reason why I keep saying that virtually all paranormal activity is demonic activity is because holy angels do not play EVP games, cause phantom footsteps, cause keys to disappear, etc. They are our servants  and delight in the supremacy of God’s glory.

Since this man (or anyone) is actually speaking to demon/s when he thinks he’s conversing with an angel, then there will be consequences. Though sincere, he is sincerely wrong…and traffic with demons will burn all those involved, and sadly there is often collateral damage as well. The children will start getting influenced.

Those who attempt to speak to human spirits or angels tend to become addicted to this endeavor. This is well documented, and the recent case of Steve Huff is a high profile case of a phenomenon that is very widespread…and ruining individuals and families.

It is safe to say that angels don’t want us talking with them because they are loathe to draw attention to themselves. In every way possible, they will seek that all the glory goes to God.

The man who actively seeks angelic EVP’s  says that this angel actually talks about the gospel and evangelizing the lost. Could and would a demon do that, he asks? The answer is: absolutely yes! Satan, and his angels, went to the best Seminary in the universe (heaven) and  were taught by God Himself. Hence, though demons may inspire a message that is entirely true, the identity of the messenger (the alleged angel) is a LIE. Let that sink in….the message is true, but the messenger is a LIE.

For example, by giving an evangelical and sound answer, the alleged angel ensnares the undiscerning and advances the kingdom of darkness by spreading the lie that one can communicate with angels. It’s the same MO he uses with communicating with allegedly deceased humans.

Demons, either by appearing as angels or deceased humans, can persuade the non-discerning simply by quoting the bible accurately. If he can make strategic advances in his kingdom, Satan will preach truth all day, but there is always a catch. And eventually, some imbalance will begin to appear in the teaching.

Some folks think that if they attend a church where the bible is preached, and the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully, then they are safe from demonic counterfeit or attack. Not so. Genuine spiritual revival—whether localized or large-scale revival—gets Satan’s attention and becomes his target to sow seeds of counterfeit revival. This was studied by Jonathan Edwards during the great revivals he and John Wesley was very instrumental in.

One example of such a counterfeit sign might be angels of light visiting a vibrant church and persuading people via a ‘prophetic utterance’ to focus so hard on ministry busyness, that they lose their fervor for prayer. The ‘angel’ wants them to get so busy, they lose their first love and become prayer-less in their busyness, and spiritually powerless. Busyness is not the same as bearing Holy Spirit fruit—starting with the fruit of the Spirit.

When you read the book of Colossians, we can see that there was the same fascination with angels then, as there is today in the West. It is simply another reflection of the ascendancy of the occult worldview which is taking over our culture, and is despoiling many Christians’ views of the proper role of angels.

Hebrews 1:14 is the classic text of the angels job description.

Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV

[13] But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? [14] Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

In addition, we remember 2 Cor. 11:14 of the “Angel of Light”

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Over-familiarity with angels is something that has been brought to my attention as well. With few exceptions, when humans had an encounter with a holy angel, they were terrified, and were tempted to bow down to them, which was abhorrent to the angels. However, it is instructive that the casualness that seems to accompany some of these alleged angel discussions, is in itself a red-flag.

Let me add the very common practice of reciting the prayer to Michael, the archangel. I know more than one person who seems to claim a special ministry partnership with Michael. That is a distinct issue, but let me strongly caution anyone who thinks that they are attended by Michael on a regular basis. He can only be at one place at a time, and frankly, why do WE think that he overlooks billions of other people just to be our ministry companion? He is the protector of God’s people in both Testaments.

If you’re explicitly relying on angelic help and communication in deliverance ministry,  Beware! You may end up needing deliverance yourself. Sometimes folks use ‘angelic’ help to heal people. In the NT we don’t see apostles consciously working alongside angels in ministry. Of course angels were present, but the apostles didn’t saddle up to them as partners…tapping into their powers. They relied on the Holy Spirit.

Here is the prayer said by countless investigators, as well as folks in general, seeking protection.

Michael the Archangel Prayer

“Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”

In essence, we need to treat this petition to the archangel just like we did above regarding angelic communication in general. As is readily apparent, this ‘prayer’ is TAKING THE INITIATIVE TO CONTACT AN ARCH-ANGEL, MICHAEL.

Do we have any instances in the gospels or Acts in which the Lord Jesus or the apostles called on Michael to aid them in spiritual warfare? Is there any teaching in the epistles regarding how/why we should pray to Michael for assistance? A thousand times, NO! We’ve already noted that the church NEVER initiated communication with any angels. So, why do we think that WE should pray to an angel, when the early church did not? Do we know something Jesus didn’t? God forbid!

In addition, Ephesians 6 is the most comprehensive teaching on spiritual warfare in the bible. What does it say? Be strong IN THE LORD, and put on His full armor. No mention of praying to Michael. In Colossians, we are warned against anything that smacks of angel worship, and PRAYING to a creature like Michael is a form of worship…in this case, idolatry. You don’t commit idolatry, even sincerely, without consequences.

Colossians 2:18 KJV

[18] Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Michael is a mighty warrior and worthy of respect, but he is not a saint. Gloriously, all genuine Christians are saints!

Don’t get me wrong: angels in general, and Michael in particular, are actively involved in spiritual warfare (Daniel 10:13). However, the Lord Jesus is the General of the Heavenly Hosts…not Michael. And for reasons already stated, we must not pray to him. God in His sovereign wisdom will dispatch His angels according to His will.

Why do we even want to pray to Michael, when he is but a finite creature, whom we shall judge and rule over for all eternity? He is more in awe of us then we are of him, and is part of the heavenly spectators of us as God’s image bearers, and those in union with Christ,  and he standing on tippy toe to see how God’s kingdom is advancing through US today!

On the other hand, I do get it. If I was on a case, it would be comforting to know that Michael himself was there. However, it is infinitely more comforting to know that I have the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit…and by virtue of my union with Christ, I have HIS authority over demons.

So, why do so many people pray to him? First, it has become common to do so in the paranormal community. But we take our clues from God’s Word, and not any practice that has become commonplace. Many wrong things/beliefs have been practiced by large segments of society, but our conscience is bound only by the bible. If you are a Christian, your primary identity is not a paranormal investigator, but part of the Body of Christ…and our allegiance is to Him, and not to a group. Following the crowd is not the way of a believer.

Another reason I’ve seen is that somebody we deeply admire prays this prayer. But once again, God’s Word is our guide, and not fallible humans, no matter how godly and ‘successful’.

For Roman Catholics, this is an ‘official prayer’, sanctioned by the church. For them, there are 2 strands of equal authority: the Word of God, and tradition…especially tradition sanctioned by papal ex cathedra decree or by ecumenical counsels. (eg Trent) But I see no evidence that this prayer has been officially sanctioned as ‘infallible tradition.

I say this gently but firmly, we must stop this praying to Michael; He is NOT a saint because he has not been saved by Christ and brought into union with Him. WE are the saints, and we should stop this practice of praying to an angel.

I cannot speak with absolute certainty regarding the consequences of praying this prayer, because I am not God. And many powerful things have been accomplished in and through folks who pray this prayer, but it is spite of this prayer and not because of it. It is tragic to consider, but if praying to angels opens doors to the demonic, then this prayer to Michael for protection may actually do the opposite. It may cause us to come under even more severe attack. It is supremely ironic, that a prayer meant to seek protection, may give the devil an opportunity (topos).

I’m sure God is merciful and often works through us despite our severe shortcomings, but that is no reason to continue a practice that is manifestly odious to God’s Word. The phrase “better safe than sorry” comes to mind if you have any doubt at this point. The stakes for all involved are way too high, just to continue praying to an archangel because it’s so common. Do we really think that Michael, who is supremely zealous for God’s glory, would be happy with us worshipping him via prayer? I think not.

I’ve already strayed, so let me re-state my basic premise: from Genesis to Revelation (especially the NT), when there is angelic encounters, they are NEVER initiated by man. GOD initiates the encounters with his holy and heavenly messengers. God said it, That settles it. I believe it. Amen.

PS. If this offends you, then please list biblical texts to support your case…thank you.

Angelic Communication, Is it Biblical?

In the above video, Laura Maxwell and Mark Hunnemann discuss the topic of this growing trend we see today in the paranormal community and abroad.

We even see it within the Catholic Church. The “initiation” of angelic communication… but, is it biblical? They also discuss the dangers involved in this practice, including demonic oppression, or even worse, possession.

You will hear how Laura shares with the listeners how she too was deceived by this practice and later sought deliverance as a result! A MUST HEAR!!!

Ventriloquism’s History and Link To Spiritualism by Christina Steel.

Myself and my daughter got into a conversation about ventriloquist dummies and how creepy they are.

I researched its origins and discovered something quite disturbing! They believed the voices or noises coming from their stomachs were the voices of the unliving. Isn’t that quite disgusting? Especially when you think the stomach, or what we put into it, has effects on our health. That’s what sprung to my mind. Oh, and the thought of ‘the dead’ dwelling inside of me! Yuk! Even though I don’t believe these entities are dead humans.

I shared this with my very good friend Laura Maxwell and she asked me to write an article on the subject. This is my first article and I shall share what I have discovered with you.

The origins of the ventriloquist dummy are connected to Spiritualism by  Christina Steel.


Myself and my daughter were watching an episode of a well known comedy. It featured a Ventriloquist’s dummy. My daughter said, ”I believe they have a creepy background”.  So me being me, I Googled it and discovered a very dark history indeed!

Originally used as a religious practice by the Greeks, the word ventriloquism comes from Latin and it means ‘to speak from the stomach’. Venter means belly, and loqui means speak.

The noisesprojected from the ventriloquist’s stomach were thought to be the voices of the unliving, who were said to take up residence in the ventriloquist. The ventriloquist would then interpret the sounds. In doing so, he or she was speaking with allegedly ‘the dead’, to foretell the future.

The earliest group of prophets to do this were The Pythia, the priestess at a Temple of Apollo in Delphi. One of the most successful was Eurykles, a prophet at Athens. Gastromancers were to become referred to as Euryklides in his honour.

People in other parts of the world have also practised Ventriloquism, as a religious practice, or as part of a ritual such as the Zulu, Inuit and the Maori people.

It was used in the middle ages by people pretending to be mediums or claiming to be able to cast out evil spirits. Being able to throw their voices added to their credibility. Now this I found most disturbing… spiritualism led to stage magic and escapology. So, ventriloquism lost its mystical theme and was seen more as a performance art! This started around the 19th century.

During the 15th century, spiritualism became very popular. Séances, witchcraft and possession used vocal techniques that were very similar to ventriloquism and ventriloquists were even used in the assistance of exorcisms and séances!

Titles in the trailer for the 1964 film Devil Doll.

In the entertainment business, there are lots of comedians who use ventriloquism as an act. But as history tells us this practice is no laughing matter. The enemy will use any means necessary to entrap us, making things look very enticing indeed. I would like to point out that ventriloquist dummies have featured in many a horror film too. Looking at the history, this would certainly make sense. Messing around in the occult is a horror story you most certainly would want to stay away from.

Fred Russell and dummy ‘Coster Joe’, 1905.

Here are some images that quite frankly would be enough to warn us to stay away from this not so family friendly act of entertainment!

I think this poster speaks volumes about ventriloquism.

These images from horror movies with themes of ventriloquism should be enough to deter us all from this not so fun form of entertainment. We must protect ourselves and our families from such evil.

Most of those dolls are creepy but there are some that are not. Some even look quite pleasant. Maybe pleasant looking but when you know the whole truth, it puts a totally different perspective on things.

What Does The Bible Say?

As stated, during the middle ages, Ventriloquism was thought to be similar to witchcraft. I personally would say if  you believe you’re conversing with ‘the dead’, or channelling them via dolls, there is no doubt about it being witchcraft.

As it says in Leviticus 19:31  “Do not go for advice to people who consult the spirits of the dead. If you do, you will be ritually unclean. I am the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 You must never sacrifice your sons or daughters by burning them alive, practice black magic, be a fortune-teller, witch, or sorcerer, cast spells, ask ghosts or spirits for help, or consult the dead. Whoever does these things is disgusting to the Lord. The Lord your God is forcing these nations out of your way because of their disgusting practices.

Leviticus 20:6 I will condemn people who turn to mediums and psychics and chase after them as though they were prostitutes. I will exclude them from the people.

Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

God will not be mocked; he speaks quite clearly here on what will happen should we go seeking out such practices.

Our Children.

What really sickens me is how the occult is presented to children, not just in cute furry formats but through such children’s TV programmes as ‘Goosebumps’. This is heartbreaking.

Séance: The Conjuration of Demonic Spirits, Paranormal Shows, The Witch of Endor and More by Ex Ghost Hunter, Dana Emanuel.

Dana Emanuel, a former Paranormal Investigator of 15 years, wrote this excellent article! My dear friend Dana gave me permission to share it here!  I so encourage you to read this and share it with friends! Laura Maxwell.


Séance, The Conjuration of Demonic Spirits.


What is a Séance?

According to Wikipedia:

A séance or seance (/ˈs.ɑːns/) is an attempt to communicate with spirits. The word “séance” comes from the French word for “session”, from the Old French seoir, “to sit”. In French, the word’s meaning is quite general: one may, for example, speak of “une séance de cinéma” (“a movie session”). In English, however, the word came to be used specifically for a meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from ghosts or to listen to a spirit medium discourse with or relay messages from spirits. In modern English usage, participants need not be seated while engaged in a séance.

Necromancy/ the conjuration of the spirits of the dead…


The dead


a combining form meaning “divination,” of the kind specified by the initial element: necromancy.

Evocation/ is the act of calling upon or summoning a spiritdemondeity or other supernatural agent, in the Western mystery tradition. Comparable practices exist in many religions and magical traditions and may employ the use of mind-altering substances with and without uttered word formulas.

*It’s interesting to know that in commercialized grimoires book of magic spells and invocations it says that evocation includes elements of ‘diabolism‘ and one (The Grand Grimoire) even offers a method for making a pact with the devil, in general the art of evocation of spirits is said to be done entirely under the power of the divine. The magician is thought to gain authority among the spirits only by purity, worship and personal devotion and study.

The Rise of Spiritualism and Spirit Communication (according to common folklore, history, and beliefs)

The Fox Sisters

According to common folklore and belief, Leah, Margaretta, and Catherine Fox, from New York, played an important role in the “creation” of spiritualism, as we know it today. The two younger sisters convinced the older sister and others that they were communicating via seance’, with spirits, via “rappings”. They were considered popular and successful “mediums” for many years.

In 1888, one of the sisters, Margaretta, confessed that their “rappings” had been a hoax and she publicly demonstrated their method. She later attempted to recant her confession, but by that time, their reputation was ruined. In less than 5 years, all three sisters were dead.

Despite their confession, the spiritualism movement continued to grow in popularity.

(According to Wikipedia, Fox sisters)

When I think of the word “séance”, It makes me think of times when I was a paranormal investigator, and our investigation team would sit around a table, in a dark room, with candles lit, and everyone holding hands, singing songs to attract/appease the spirits, and once contact was made with the spirits, we would ask the spirits questions, while we all eagerly awaited responses, which would come by way of a simple knock, or a tap on the table, or in some cases, the table would actually levitate and rock back and forth on its own.

*It “appeared” to be on its own, but later I found that in reality, it was a demonic force that was responding and moving the table.

Different Types Of Séance:

Religious Séance:

In the religion of Spiritualism, and the religion of Divine Metaphysics (a federally recognized religious branch out of Spiritualism in the United States), it is generally a part of services to communicate with living personalities in the spirit world. Usually, this is only called “séance” by outsiders; the preferred term for Spiritualists is “receiving messages”.

In these sessions, which generally take place in well-lit Spiritualist churches or outdoors at Spiritualist camps (such as Lily Dale in upstate New York or Camp Cassadaga in Florida), an ordained minister or gifted contact medium will relate messages from spirit personalities to those here in the physical form.[4] Generally Spiritualist “message services” or “demonstrations of the continuity of life” are open to the public. Sometimes the medium stands to receive messages and only the sitter is seated;[6] in some churches, the message service is preceded by a “healing service” involving some form of faith healing.

(Wikipedia: Séance)

Stage Séance For large crowds:

These types of Séances are very common today as there have been many examples of it shown on TV. Shows. Shows such as “Long Island Medium”, ”Tyler the Hollywood Medium”, and many others have made spirit communication very appealing to the public.

These are usually done with the Psychic/medium giving and receiving messages from spirits posing as dead loved ones, to the audience members. Just as with any other “supernatural” types of performances, there are always some cases where fraud and trickery are involved. But nonetheless, there are cases where these “psychics” truly relayed very detailed massages that only the person and the “alleged” spirit would have known.

The true question would be, “what kind of spirit is actually giving these messages?” A trapped human spirit, an angel, or a demonic spirit?

Seance’ in modern society today

Among this new generation of spiritualists and those that are simply fascinated with the concept of earthbound/trapped spirits, there are many types of Séances happening around the world today. With an explosion of interest in the occult and paranormal, there has risen a tradition of conducting séances outside of any religious context and without a leader. Many seance sessions are with only 2-3 participants.

Paranormal reality TV shows are also at an all time high. One quick search on our local TV guide came up with several shows related to the paranormal and ghost hunting. Here are some…

*To know the heart of society, look at its entertainment.

Many people are wondering what makes viewers believe, or disbelieve what they see on the TV screen. The popular paranormal shows are not only featuring “ghost stories”, but they are using fancy para-tools to collect evidence of “ghosts”, and calling it “science”. Even many skeptics are tuning in.

All it takes is a group of paranormal enthusiasts waving around cool looking tools that beep and suddenly people believe in ghosts and haunted houses.

Today it is more common to see groups of only a few people participating in Séances, attempting to copycat what they have seen on the latest “Ghost Adventures” episodes, using the latest evp recording devices, or “ghost boxes”, to record the voices of alleged earthbound spirits, only to compare gathered evidence with other paranormalists and hoping to get the “holy grail” of all evidence, to prove life after death, and that “ghosts” do exist.

Then there are those that are sensationalists, or paranormal daredevils that may be participating in Séances as a way to test their understanding of the boundaries between reality and the paranormal. These séance participants are often known to use ouija boards, dowsing rods, etc., often along with attempts of provoking spirits into performing, usually via religious provocations, verbal threats, etc., just to get that sought after evidence of spirit manifestation and materialization.

*Please note that ALL spirit communication is dangerous. It is a common misconception that Séances where the participants are using an ouija board is more dangerous than those that simply use a digital recording device. The truth is, ALL spirit communication is an open invitation to the demonic.

My late friend Joe, conducting a séance session using dowsing rods, with a few other team members.

But one must take into consideration what the Bible says about life after death, and the possibility of “trapped spirits”. Because if they are not truly the trapped earthbound spirits of our departed loved ones, what are they?

Earliest known instances of Séance recorded in history:

While many believe that “Spiritualism” and Séances began around the 1700-1800s with the Fox sisters, or even the wife of President Abraham Lincoln, it is important to know that Séances goes back to the days when the Old Testament of the Holy Bible was written.

We see the first known recorded seance in scripture, with the story of Samuel and Saul. There were mediums, necromancy, divination, and Séances in those days. The Bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. The enemy uses the same tactics today that he used in the days before Christ came and walked the earth as a man. In those days, there were people that believed in “ghosts”. (Earthbound Spirits)

The medium calls up the “familiar spirit” that masquerades as the departed spirit of Samuel.

1 Samuel 28:7-15 KJV

[7] Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. [8] And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. [9] And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? [10] And Saul sware to her by the Lord , saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. [11] Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12] And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13] And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. [15] And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.

Familiar Spirit, or the Departed Spirit of Samuel?

Among many other ‘controversial topics’ in the Bible, the incident that took place in 1 Samuel is one of the most controversial, especially within the “paranormal community”. Many scholars have debated on this issue, as to whether Samuel himself was actually called up by the medium, or if it was a “familiar spirit”, masquerading as the departed spirit of Samuel. In order for us to know the truth, we must look at scripture and divide the word rightly. After dividing the word rightly, and carefully looking at this incident, as it is written, and comparing it with the whole counsel of the Bible, I, and many others, have come to the conclusion that this was actually a familiar spirit, masquerading as the departed spirit of Samuel.

This is what led me to this conclusion:

1. Verse 14 says: And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground..

*When we look at the word “perceive”, it means:

Perceive: “to identify by means of our senses.”

The word “perceive” does not necessarily mean the perception was correct. It only means that the perception was based on the information gathered. Things can be perceived correctly, but they can also be falsely perceived.

2. Verse 13-14 ..what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle.

*The medium seen “gods” ascending out of the earth..

I find it interesting that she seen “what appeared to be Samuel”, among “false gods”, ascending out of the earth. This tells me it was a familiar spirit (demonic spirit) as it also ascended out of the earth with the other demonic spirits (false gods).

3. Verse 7 “Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit”.

* This point is very important, as it is actually the very answer to our question, right under our nose. If it had been a snake it would have jumped up and bit me!

4, By Dividing the word rightly, with the rest of the Bible:

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 KJV
[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 ; [14] And enquired not of the Lord : therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

*Saul was actually enquiring of the familiar spirit, not Samuel himself.

5. In Luke 16:19-31, The story of The Rich Man, and Lazarus, the beggar makes a few things clear, which show the impossibility that Samuel himself could have possibly came back from heaven to talk to Saul. It shows that when saved people die, they are immediately carried to heaven by an angel, and the wicked lift their eyes up, being in torment, in hell. It also says that there is a great gulf “fixed”, which makes it impossible for someone to leave heaven or hell to talk to the living.

Abraham also told the rich man that if the unsaved will not believe Moses and the prophets, they will not believe, even if one was to come back from the dead. So, if God will not allow a departed spirit to “come back” from heaven or hell, for the gospels sake, He will not allow them to come back for any other reason. As the gospel is the most important message anyone could give someone else!

The Bible also tells us….

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV
[10] 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, [11] Or a charmer, or a CONSULTER WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS, or a wizard, or a NECROMANCER. [12] 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.

There are reasons that the Bible forbids communication with spirits

The Bible tells us that Satan masquerades as an angel of light.

Isaiah 8:19 KJV

[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?

*God wants us to inquire of HIM, not familiar spirits.

These spirits do not speak according to Gods Word

1. They pretend to be earthbound spirits, while the Bible teaches that people either go straight to heaven or to hell when they die.

2.These spirits are also known to say that they “cannot go to the light”, but that they need the “paranormal investigator” to assist them into the light. This would suggest “post mortem/after death salvation”, which is contrary to what the Bible teaches.

(Please see my article on “Post-mortem Salvation” for further proof that this is contrary to what the Bible teaches.)

3.These spirits are known to say there is no real, literal hell.

Dangers involved with Spirit Communications

Demonic spirits masquerade as trapped earthbound spirits of our departed loved ones. Even most paranormal investigators will admit that demons are capable of “mimicking” the dead, and that often times they do.

(AKA; The “little girl ghost lie”)

While some believe that “mimicking” is “sometimes” the case…

The truth is… when paranormal activity is present, it is ALWAYS demonic spirits involved.

*Even holy angels do not “haunt” us.

Satan is the father of lies, and his minions are liars as well. During these Séances, they will give good, and accurate information, in which usually persuades people that, not only is the information true, but that they are indeed whom they say they are.


What would be their motive? As long as we allow them into our lives, they will have access to us.

These spirits are here to STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY.

Once we allow them into our lives, they will eventually cause much havoc in our homes. Sometimes this takes days, months, or even years, before their true identities become known, if at all.

There are known cases where mediums that have used their “ability” to receive messages from these “spirits”, have later become unable to control such messages from coming through, in instances where the spirits literally took over the medium at unsuspecting times, and even tried to harm or kill them.

Laura Maxwell’s mum, Rita Peffer McMillan.

One case in particular, a psychic medium, named Rita McMillan, (Mother of Laura Maxwell, Ex-Spiritist), would have episodes where the spirits that she often communicated with, suddenly turned on her, showing their true negative identity. The same Spirits that she once knew to be the kind spirits of dead loved ones that she spoke to often.

They changed.

Suddenly, she would go into trances, against her will, at unsuspecting times, and she would hear the voices of these spirits yelling at her and saying very negative and hostile obscenities toward her.

She would be walking down the street and a spirit would take over her abruptly, and give passersby messages, and then the spirit/s would try to throw her in oncoming traffic to get hit by moving vehicles! Also, once she was in her kitchen and then suddenly she went into a trance (against her will) with later waking up to finding the kitchen on fire. The spirits were trying to kill her.

Tragically, Laura’s sweet mum later took her own life after having gone through such demonic torment. Please see the full testimony of Laura Maxwell. Laura leads a very successful ministry, called “Our Spiritual Quest”, warning people of the dangers and deceptions surrounding spiritualism, the new age, and the occult and she shares the truth of Jesus Christ.

(Please see more on Laura Maxwell below, under article)

Just as with any other sin, the enemy will try to “tempt us”. They will try to lure us into occult practices. (necromancy, divination, consulting with familiar spirits, idolatry, etc.)

Usually, soon after someone dies, a familiar spirit will attempt to make “contact” with us. They will try to make their presence known. These attempts can range from the sound of footsteps, or things being moved on it’s own, disembodied voices, physical manifestations that can be seen, such as the form of dark shadow figures, orbs, or full bodied apparitions. It could also be strong smells of things that you would associate with a particular person, such as cigarette/cigar smoke, or perfume.

The problem comes in when people do not “test the spirits”. Could this spirit truly be an “earthbound spirit”? Is this concept in line with scripture?

What to do if you or someone you know suffers from a ‘haunting.’

When these spirits attempt to contact you, or make their presence known, you need to rebuke it in Jesus name! When this is done, these spirits always flee! This is further proof that they are not whom they say they are.

After the spirit flees, as described above, if it returns, you must evaluate the situation. Usually, when there is any type of “haunting”, the familiar spirit has some kind of “legal right” to be there. Something must be contributing to an open door to the demonic. Is it possible that you or a family member may need deliverance from demons: the demons cast out of you? If you’ve received deliverance ministry already, are you, or someone in your household involved with any habitual sin or occult practices?

If you or someone you know suffer from demonic attack, please contact me. If for some reason, I am unable to help, I can help you connect with another deliverance minister who may live in your area, or can help you via Skype.

Seeking first the kingdom of God,

Famous Ex Occult Priestess Ivone Silva’s Testimony: English Translation.

Ivone Silva Consulted By The Rich & Famous.

“Hear her powerful testimony as an ex-spiritist priestess. Today as a servant of God, she relates her testimony.”

This post was shared by my good friend and Ex Occultist Ivani Greppi. ‘We continue to hear of more and more online friends whose work is being censored! Clearly, Ivone Silva’s powerful freedom from occult testimony angers the powers of darkness. Let’s share it while we still can!’ Laura Maxwell.

I shared the video testimony below of Ivone Silva, ex- candomblé priestess in Brazil on my YouTube channel.  I received a legal notification email from YouTube stating that this video is blocked in Brazil. Per Brazilian law, Christian testimonies regarding ex-spiritist practitioners of Umbanda, Candomblé, or Quimbanda (Afro-Brazilian religions originating from Yoruba culture), are considered to be hate speech/ religious intolerance.


After my post, several people asked for a translation of this video into English.  I have added the English translation to the video link below.

Please click on CC button at the bottom of video for English Transcript.

YouTube Video Translation: Ivone Silva

Below is the translated transcript of Ivone Silva’s testimony. It is clearly not hate speech. It does not promote religious intolerance.

My name is Ivone Silva I was known as Mãe Baiana do Brasil (Mother Baiana of Brazil) nationally and internationally.

Demonic activities in my life began at an early stage. I was eight years old when during a certain night when I awoke to see people surrounding my bed. This is something that unfortunately I don’t like to speak of, but it is necessary to share.

I awoke in the middle of the night and they were there. There were four people surrounding me, some women and some men appearing to come from an orgy. They were inside my bedroom.


I didn’t understand, I was little and I tried to figure out who these people were. They said they were my friends who were there to accompany me. I began to find this normal— seeing those things. They asked me not to tell anyone; that they were my friends.

Later on, I began to feel alone, I had no friends. I was a child who was different, sad, demonized, very precocious. And I never felt well, nothing helped. It was just something in my life after all.

And then one day, I realized that I heard voices. And those voices most of the time, I kept searching where they came from. And I thought, they came from my friends who came to help me.

Much time passed, and I grew up with this. Whenever I saw an airplane and felt fear, they (the spirits) whispered in my ear: “That is (only) a means of transportation. You will fly a lot. You will be rich. Have jewelry. And have everything you want.”


So, I grew up with all this demonic activity. One day it dawned on me that I had certain powers. Powers to read fortunes (Tarot) cards, seashells. I began to explore this during my adolescence.

My mother was evangelical, but had turned away from the gospels, mainly due to my demonic powers. This is something that I don’t like to give much detail, but I began to frequent the “terreiro” (spiritist center) (with) my “mãe de santo” (priestess), who has now passed away.

One day—it was my birthday and a demon at the temple approached me and said that I was very dear to him. He would prove to me how much he liked me by manifesting physically to me on my birthday (party).

On the day of my birthday, a black goat was loosened inside the temple and it ran to my house. When it entered my house, it placed both paws over my birthday cake, ate a piece and disappeared.


Two days later, I returned to the temple and the demon descended and said, “Didn’t I tell you that I was going to your party?”

This made me feel good, thinking that this was a friend, an angel, a spirit guide, an “Orixá” (Yoruba god); someone good who would protect me for the rest of my life.

Little did I know that I was completely deceived. As the years passed, I learned many demonic rituals. I learned how to sacrifice animals, how to make offerings at crossroads, cemeteries, waterfalls, forests, and any imaginable satanic ritual.

All this is demonic: Cards, fortune telling, spiritism, voodoo, it’s all demonic. I can say and affirm all this because I lived within this world.

So, my brethren, as the years passed, I became more and more accustomed to all this and during all these demonic activities, I had three failed marriages. The longest marriage lasted one year.


I continued on like this thinking my life was good because I began to travel to Miami, Europe, throughout Brazil. Always very well dressed, because through my witchcraft, the devil gave me a lot of money. Perfumes, nice house, car, driver, I had it all. Except I didn’t have Jesus, who is the most precious of all.

During this entire time, I didn’t realize that I was losing my life. I never got along with my family. I never spoke to anyone, when I did it was only to offend. When they came to my house, I gave them money thinking that this was the solution to the problems. I was never a family woman; I was never a mother to my children.

I never realized the great joy of knowing Jesus, because when tribulation came, I would say “Oh my God, help me.” But it sounded strange to my ears, even though I did love Jesus. However, there’s a difference:  Calling on Jesus is one thing, knowing him is another.

In the meantime, I continued to meet famous actors, politicians, business owners, people with much money always by my side. So, I got used to this false world, a virtual world filled with cash.

Sometimes I had a lot of money, at times the money would be gone. I hate to talk about this, but I did horrible things. I sacrificed to Pomba Gira, Exu (Incubus, Succubus like spirits), gods of the forest, and waterfalls (Yoruba gods). I made offerings to all the gods.


When people requested for me to perform rituals, believe it or not, the incantations always worked. My customers paid me well. And as the “Baiana” I became famous, strong, powerful.

When I was taken to the temple to learn the rituals, the priestess didn’t have to teach me anything. Since the demon had a very personal relationship with me, he taught me everything directly.

When I speak of the devil, I want the brethren to understand that he did not appear to me with horns and tail at all. He appeared as an angel, a good person trying to help me.

When I entered the temple, I went inside the “room of saints” (room used to prepare mediums in training) as well. But I only stayed in the room for three days instead of fifteen (required) days. The priestess said, “This one is already prepared.”

But I did pass through the humiliation of drinking water of “abo” (herbal drink), to see the larvae in the meat offerings. This is it brethren, I did see it, I gave my blood to that demon. I did everything that I needed to do without the help of the priestess. Just like you brethren don’t need a priest or priestess, you need God.

It was me and the demon. I didn’t need to learn anything else because this demon taught me everything I needed to know:  How to sacrifice goats, chickens; how to open up a grave and steal a corpse’s femur. All this I learned on my own with the demon by my side.

I hate to speak of these things, but what happened was that I was such witch as any other, but the Lord saved me. Because I was forced to open up goats and chicken take their innards and make offering to the enemy. Perform rituals with dogs in heat, black cats, all this I did.


But brethren, God is bigger than all this. He saved me from all this filth, understand? Today brothers and sisters if you find yourself in this situation, don’t give offerings of moonshine to the (Exu) incubus, much less cigarettes, or any drink, or smokes, or clothing to Pomba Gira (Succubus), much less buy Cuban cigars to give to these demons. They’re all devils, and no one should offer these (gods) anything.

What we need is the anointing of the Holy Spirit through the Blood (of Christ) and you will see what happens.

I did all this, buying beautiful clothes to Pomba Gira (succubus), each one of my Orixá god had their own outfits, their drinks, their food offerings. I had quite a temple.

But to the honor and glory of our Lord, today I have Jesus in my life. This is all that matters. I won’t give the bloody details of my “animal sacrifices”.

We don’t need this. Because for the honor and glory of the Lord there is no necessity for these things. Brethren, the devil is defeated. I can say this now to the honor and glory of the Lord. When we have Jesus, listen, when we are part of Jesus’ celestial kingdom, listen well.

One day I was called to put a curse for a lady who wanted to by all means separate her daughter from her husband because her daughter was rich. Her son-in-law was poor, and she didn’t accept him.

She approached me and said, “Do this “work” (curse). How much is it?” I gave her the cost. She said, I want them separated any way possible.

When the demon descended, she made a pact with him, and I didn’t know it. Later I came to know about this pact, the demon asked for her daughter’s undergarments. And she brought it. Later on, the demonic entity appeared again and took the undergarments. At a later time, I saw the undergarments immersed in blood with a dagger in the “saint room”. For an entire year, the woman’s daughter suffered with problems in her uterus.

One day, the woman returned and asked for the same demon to appear who did the curse. When he returned, he said, “Didn’t you want to separate them with whatever it took?”

She had promised to bring him a rich offering:  Four goats’ offerings. But she didn’t do it. Since she didn’t fulfill the promise of the offerings, so he gave her daughter a disease.

And there was no way out, but for the honor and glory of the Lord, at this time the Lord was already with me. I had pity on the girl, since in reality, it wasn’t I who did the curse. I was unconscious during the rituals.

What happened was the girl was saved, she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. And this made me happy. But not all the stories had a happy ending.

There was a time when I went to make an offering at midnight. When approached the crossroads, it looked like there was a party there. I remember this as if it were today. They were all there (demonic spirits), (manifesting as) two men, and two women. The women drank, smoked, and laughed. They took their skirts and lifted them over their heads, exposing black garters on their legs. The men smoked and drank as if this was an orgy, a party. They were happy, and I didn’t know why.

When I got closer, I felt like I was levitating from the ground. This is when I was still young, at the beginning of my practicing (of spiritism). As I approached, they began to quiet down, until all became mute staring at me. What happened then is that I felt a tremendous sadness. I felt like I was one of them.

While they stared, I placed down my offerings as if I couldn’t see them. When I spilled the blood offering, they drank it, sticking their fingers in it bringing it to their mouths during the sacrifice.

When I turned away, I was not allowed to look backwards again, I heard their laughter and all the way home I smelled the cigar smoke as if it had impregnated in my clothes.

That night, I had a horrible night wondering when I would be set free from this. Because believe it or not, even though I did all these things, I wanted to escape it. At the same time, I was afraid to leave and lose my social status and money, my friends. This is what I feared.

But God was always powerful and saved me from this. Brethren, these people who I saw at the crossroads, laughing, drinking, and commemorating the blood offering that I brought them, they were all demons. They were not people of flesh and blood. They were demons waiting for their offerings.

And they gave me confidence that all would work out. Because they were pleased. In reality, the person who asked me to perform this ritual, got what she desired. If she’s happy today, I don’t know. If this person was saved, I don’t know that either. But I hope that the Lord finds her.

I want to ask you priests and priestesses, practitioners (of the different spiritual occult practices):  Leave this all for the love of God. Today. Listen to the voice of God, ask, plead, search Him, because He will answer.

Brethren, leave it all behind because it is all purely demonic. You are here today, if two seconds from now you are no longer here, you will be condemned to hell. To a place where there is only crying, fire, gnashing of teeth, sulfur, sadness, tears. Brothers and sisters, accept Jesus Christ.

If I cry today, I cry in my spirit, I cry with joy. Therefore, you must reject all this and accept the true God, the One who is knocking at your door every day. Because my God is a gentleman, he knocks at your door. The one who invades your life is the devil, with lies and obligations for someone who never did anything for us.

Our duty is to love Jesus Christ, he is our great provider who did all things for us. Brethren, run to (Him) today so you may have a sleep of peace, so you may have your home redeemed and washed by the blood of Christ. For you to see how wonderful it is to have Jesus Christ in your life, a present friend, 24 hours by your side to help you in your days here on earth with peace and hope. To have victory and salvation, in Jesus Name renounce all this.

I pray that these words enter your hearts. Only Jesus Christ saves. Only Jesus Christ can do all things. Look here, I abandoned this practice of Mãe de Santo (priestess) when I was at the top of my successful career.

I was on my way to Miami to do consultations for 70 people for $300.00 apiece. This is when the Lord called me, and I could not resist because I felt his calling in my heart.

I saw that He wanted to give me life, and life in abundance. Leave all this today brethren. Break it all (the curses/ strongholds). Do you think the devil will kill you? No, he will not. You will break in Jesus, He will wash you in the blood of the Lamb, he will cleanse you and you will live your life in peace enjoying your days by the Lord’s side.

You who have images, statues of deities/ saints made of clay, cement, plastic, wood, steel—all of these are satanic. They have demons. Open your Bibles. (All the Orixá gods are related to Catholic Saints:  Syncretism), therefore behind each statue/ image is a demon. This, no one can silence because it’s the truth.


I’m telling you this in order that you be edified. The only one we may worship is God, Jehovah, King of kings. When it comes to idolatry, open your Bible to Apocalypse and you will see.

Apocalypse 22, verse 15 says:  But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

Brethren, during this cursed life trajectory with demons by my side, I never got along with anyone. I was very ignorant, stressed, never slept. I used tranquilizers. I didn’t get along with my children, or any man. It was a horrible life, a crazy life.

I only liked parties, to prostitute myself. Nothing gave me pleasure. I was compulsive. Everything thing that was vanity, I wanted to buy. I felt that if I bought these things, I was fulfilling a need that never was fulfilled.

But what I needed was love, the love of God, the love of Jesus Christ in my life. And during these demonic activities all I had was regret and sadness.

Only Jesus Christ can cleanse us, restore us, and give us love. Satan is filled with wile and is very astute. One time I went to the cemetery to leave food offerings to a (demonic) deity.

When I arrived at the cemetery, at the entrance, I saw an old man with three black dogs. The old man was covered in sack cloth, burlap rags coming undone, brownish. He was hideous, with a long beard and boils on his face.

When I approached, he said, “Did you bring my food?”

I had chills from the top of my head to my toes. I stared at that man, and he stared back with protruding eyes while I felt as if I was levitating. I placed the food over a tomb.

When I began to leave, and he said, “Don’t look back.” And he remained there as I peeked sideways and saw that his nails were like claws tearing at the meat.

I could never forget that horrible scene. This demon brought me here just to appear/ manifest as “Omulu” (a deity of diseases and greatly feared and revered in Candomblé).


Another time I was visiting a city where a crime was committed. Everyone was fearful asking who committed this crime. A young man of 17 was killed with two stab wounds to the chest.

I stayed at this city for 4 days. During one night, I went to sleep and saw the young man standing next to me. He stared at me with blood coming out of his mouth, nose, eyes.

The following day, I saw him again at night. This happened four days in a row. He kept following me. On the last night I asked God to make him disappear from my life since I was terrified.

And a demon manifested before me in the room. His feet were like goat’s. His tongue like a serpent’s when he spoke. From his trunk up, he was like a man, the bottom part was like a horse. His nails were black, and he wore a velvet cape. Inside the lining was red, outside it was black. He had a trident in his hand, wore a goatee, and laughed while staring at me. On his forehead, were two small horns. His skin was reddish/ purplish.

He said laughing, “I’m not here to play. I don’t want you to play around.” This is because I owed him a food offering, moonshine, cigar, and red candles. I owed him this.

He stomped the floor with his goat feet and growled like a mad dog at me. Suddenly there was a horrible odor like sulfur, acrid. He was angry because I had not made my food offering as promised.

Immediately, he transformed into the young man who was murdered. That’s when I understood that this demon was transforming in the image of the young man to fool me. This happened as certain as God lives, I did see all this.

All apparitions are created by Satan—since he has (the ability to perform) many special effects. He loves to scare and trick people. Because he came to kill, steal, and destroy.

Well then brethren, I worked much for the elite, high society, actors/ artists. Some famous people here in Brazil, I cannot name. It would be rude for me to expose these people. But I assure you, there were many.

Whomever is watching my testimony live, will be able to see their faces projected on the screen. And will be able to see documents proving the validity of all this. My testimony is true, and of God.

I was also consulted by many politicians—but don’t worry, I will not reveal names.

There were many international actors/ performers whom I am allowed to name. I consulted for Gloria Estefan from Miami Sound Machine, Andy Garcia, Sylvester Stallone. And all this I have documented to the honor and glory of the Lord.

All these people, they had no problem paying me, and they paid me well. What did they want? Fame, success, money, beauty, these are the things they wanted.

It’s a shame, but few of them accept the reality today. Many hang up the phone on me. Some call me with threats for me not to speak of them. But to the honor and glory of the Lord, I have given this testimony.

Brethren, it’s incredible how these people become dependent on this type of thing, this lifestyle. This experience with the devil affected me profoundly. But the Lord came and cleaned me, and washed me of all the guilt, tears, it was wonderful.

I hope that the Lord is like this all powerful in the lives of people who are still involved with demons, these artists/ performers.

Brethren, this is how my conversion happened, how Jesus saved me. I was going to Miami, and there I had 70 consultations scheduled, each for $300.00.

When I entered the plane, it was a blessing. I was seated in first class, very chic, all dressed up, flashy bling jewelry—looking like a Christmas tree. I was at my seat, eating during an evening flight.

The U.S. for me by now was my second home. I had an apartment rented since I constantly traveled there to practice divination, witchcraft, and all things demonic.

So, as I sat there in the special section of the plane, the curtain pulled back, and when I looked up, I saw a servant of the Lord.


She looked at me and said, “Ma’am, are you having dinner, am I disturbing you? Forgive me. But the Holy Spirit spoke to me back there.”


She looked at me and said, “The Lord wants me to tell you to stop doing everything that you’re doing.”

“Doing what?” I tried to act dumb.

She said, “You know what (I’m talking about). Stop in the name of Jesus Christ. He said enough.”

Then brethren, I almost died of fright. When she started to walk away, I asked, what’s your name?

She said, “Missionary Silvia.”

When I arrived in Miami, I got my luggage and rushed home. I entered the apartment filled with dread. The girl who assisted me said in Spanish, “What’s wrong? You’re so stressed.”

I said, “Get away from me creature, for the love of God. I’m not up for anything.” I hid from Jesus under my comforter. I was thinking either God or the devil was about to get me. I was afraid.

What the devil did with me was to tell me that I never had a chance with Jesus. The devil is a liar. If that’s what he is telling you brothers, he’s lying. In the Name of Jesus Christ, you have all the chances in the world.

I remained hiding, and the girl returned and said there was a man at the door who wanted to speak with me.

I said, “Tell him I’m not here, creature.”

She said, “But he insists, ma’am.”

Since he wouldn’t leave, I got up and went to the door. Standing there was a man wearing lipstick, all dressed up, wearing a cape, hair slicked back, and I said, “Dear Lord, what’s this?”

He said, “I’m Walter Mercado (celebrity astrologer).


He offered me $9,000 to work two days a week. He would bring to Miami my children, my husband, and pay for my room and board at the Double Tree.

The entire time, I just stared at this man giving him a “no” while he kept insisting. Finally, he said, “$18,000, end of discussion.”

I opened the door and asked him to leave. I said to the girl, “Rose, I’m going to (Orlando) pick up some things at Disney for the kids, and I’m returning home.”

When I arrived back home in Brazil, after 4 days instead of the planned 4 months, my husband couldn’t understand what was happening.

Since I believed that the devil was telling me the truth, I was horrified when I got back home not knowing how to tell my husband that I was afraid. And that’s when Satan put in my mind that I needed to commit suicide.

That’s when things got heavy. Listen well, I had not yet accepted Jesus Christ. Still fearful and not knowing what to do, I wanted to escape from one side to another, not knowing where to seek for help. Demons kept telling me to kill myself since I was worthless.

So, I got a gun to kill myself, but then I thought to take rat poison instead, it was better that way. But as the brethren knows, I’m chubby. And someone I knew who died from rat poisoning—his face was so bloated even though he was thin, it made me worry about how big my face would be? It (my appearance) would haunt my children (forever).

I decided to get the gun and shoot myself in the ear. A while back, I remembered some lowlife telling me that if the bullet had a hole in it, it wouldn’t hurt. So, I grabbed a nail and a hammer to put a hole in the bullet. Meanwhile, I’m thinking that my children may hear the noise and come running to me.

I then picked up a magazine laying on top of the bed. It had some sayings on it that looked like a church publication. I didn’t know it was evangelical however when I called a number on the page.

The woman answered saying, “Jesus loves you.”

jesus loves you

And I said was, “Fine, what do you say about a person who wants to commit suicide?”

She was horrified, and asked why I wanted to kill myself. I said, just tell me what to do, what to read so I can die in peace.

She asked my name, but I said, if I tell you my name, you won’t want to talk to me. She insisted and I gave her my (spiritual) name, “Baiana of Brasil”.

She said, “Ah, now I’m really going to talk to you.”

Brethren, this woman was strongly used by God. She said, “Sister, give me your address.”

I asked her what for? And she said, “Well aren’t you going to die? If you want to die today Baiana, I’ll help you die.”

I thought, this is beautiful. I found someone courageous to help me. She asked for my address again, and I asked, what for?

She said, “I want to go to your funeral.” And after much arguing back and forth, I gave her my address.

She was used by the Holy Spirit when she said, “Let’s read Psalm 91, 22, 23, 104, 102.” Brethren, it was almost an hour of praying when I said, “Woman I want to die now, I’ve prayed enough.”

She said, “No, calm down. We’re praying only two more (psalms).”

As as she said this, my son called out to me saying that someone was downstairs calling on the intercom. I asked him, “Who is it?”

My son said, “They’re saying that they are God’s people.”

When I heard that, I told him to let them come in, since they were saying if we didn’t open the door, they would break the door down.

When they walked in, they took me by the arms saying, “Let’s go sister.” And they took me to church.

My brethren, at the church, demons were expelled (from me) like you wouldn’t believe. The girl from the phone had given them my address.

It was such a relief, and I accepted Christ. I arrived home filled with joy. When my husband saw me, he asked, “What’s going on?”

I said, “Nothing.” And that day I slept so well. The following morning, a sister (from the church) called me and asked if I had told my husband that I had accepted Christ.

I didn’t know what to say, and told her that I would let my husband know the following day. She asked me to tell him that same day, but I didn’t have the courage.

That night, the Holy Spirit woke me. I said to my husband that I needed to tell him something, but I didn’t have the courage to do so.

He asked me to tell him and I blurted out: “I accepted Jesus and no longer work for the devil.” Hallelujah.

My husband looked at me with wide eyes and said, “You’ll starve to death.”

I said, “I rebuke this in the Name of Jesus Christ.”

When he heard this, God used him when he said, “Now that you have accepted Him, continue on, don’t turn back under any circumstances.”

This made me so happy, even though neither my husband or my children had accepted Christ yet.

There was one year of testing. The devil did everything (against me). I lived a tremendous life because, even though I lost my store, my car, my jewels, my money, everything— but I didn’t lose my faith, or my children, or my husband. Praise God, my family remained intact as it is today. Hallelujah.

The Lord bathed my home with His blood, because my son accepted Jesus Christ, my daughter, my other son, my husband all accepted Christ. Praise God my house today is saved. Hallelujah.

The past creature, the “Baiana” I killed (was gone), but in the mind of others, she still existed. People kept calling me for spells and potions. Famous people called. Brethren, this person here today is victorious. Hallelujah in Jesus Name.

new creature

I lost it all. I find it hard to find a Christian who would ever say they want to be a millionaire. No.

I accepted Jesus, and I’m happy with Christ. I’m maintaining my life, because the Lord blesses us. That old creature that had a Toyota, jewels, brand name clothing, was well-liked in famous circles, TV, in nightclubs, restaurants—that creature has died.

But there’s one thing:  The Lord always provided. Today, I may not sail in yachts, drive my Toyota, I don’t have my store, but I have Jesus Christ, and He doesn’t shame me, He doesn’t allow me to be hungry, to be unworthy.

When we accept Jesus it’s a journey, and Jesus didn’t come for cowards. I didn’t hold on to anything (material) even a pair of boots given to me by the devil, was stolen. Hallelujah.

The devil took back everything he gave me. I lost my car saying, “Amen”. Lost my store saying, “Amen”. I lost everything saying, Hallelujah.

I knew that the Lord honored me, and for His Honor and Glory, I’m here today to give this testimony with much joy because the Lord rescued me.

At the height of my necessities, I was in my house without any bread when a famous person called offering me a great deal of money to perform “macumba” (voodoo) rituals for them in Rio de Janeiro. And I said, “No, I’m waiting on the Lord.” And the Lord was faithful to me and will always be in the life of anyone who seeks Him in Spirit and Truth.

Another beautiful thing the Lord did in my life. The Lord is wonderful and beautiful always. Filled with splendor and love. I had nothing to eat at my house. And I was sad and said, “Lord, have mercy on us. What do I do?”

I went out and much to my surprise, I saw a man riding by on a bicycle when two chickens fell off his bike onto my sidewalk. I grabbed the chickens and chased after him yelling, but he didn’t hear me.

Feeling sad, I entered the house with the chickens, thinking that I could cook them. But then, my Jesus, if he returned, I wouldn’t have money to give him for his chickens. What should I do?

So, a sister called, and asked, “Did you receive your blessing?”

I said, “No blessing, but I have problem. Two chickens fell on my sidewalk, but I’m scared to eat them in case the man comes looking for them.”

“My sister, go eat the chickens. It’s a gift from God,” she said.

(Laughing) Hallelujah, that day we cooked the chickens, ate them and were happy with God’s mercy in our lives.

Another great blessing that the Lord did in my life when I had nothing—you’ll say, “this sister only says she had nothing.”

After one entire year (of testing) (Let me give you an) example: an engineer comes to Christ and remains an engineer, a doctor comes to Christ and remains a doctor; but a spiritist/ occultist (Satanist) can’t continue on, and my profession was “Macumba” (spiritist medium/ voodoo practitioner).

My husband had an industrial air-conditioning company. He closed it to work with me serving demons, we were both involved in the occult, and now there was nothing to live on.

People turned their back on us as is customary when people accept Jesus Christ. So, I went downstairs with my daughter and was playing with her outside my building. Suddenly, I’m praying and asking God to have mercy on us, since I had nothing (to eat) that day.

In a bit, a bird approached us—a tiny yellow thing with a black head, singing its heart out. Such happy little creature. My neighbor came over and asked if the bird was ours. I thought it was strange how it stayed close to us without flying away. She said, “What a beautiful bird. Will you catch it for me?”

She brought over a bird cage and I helped her place it inside. She said that her son was crying because his own bird had flown away, so she decided to take this one home (to her son).

Soon her son returned with a check, “My mother sent this for you.” (Money his mother would have spent buying him a new bird).

I thanked the Lord, and went to buy some things. Soon the boy returned crying saying the (new found) bird had (also) escaped. I told him how sorry I was, and now I didn’t have any money to return to him.

The boy said, he just wanted his bird to come back. Later on, he returned very happy saying that his original bird had suddenly returned.

And this is how the Lord has done so many miracles, and there’s not enough space in this recording to tell of all the wonders God has done for me.

Brethren, there’s something that I don’t like to discuss much, but it’s important. We need to sanctify ourselves more, refrain from (certain TV programs). Have you watched the (new) telenovela showcasing such idolatry? It’s very demonic, even if you lack wisdom, you understand that these things (on TV) are not good.

The angel flung from heaven, who is he? Satan. I worked with artists/ performers. They all talk about “macumba” (placing curses on others) using the occult/ voodoo.

Brethren, these people (on TV/ entertainment) share these demonic practices in their lives, in their blood, all the time. What they do is cursed. These TV programs are cursed nowadays. Usually they consecrate themselves to demons. Whenever you see people rise in fame, most likely they are involved in satanism.

We say these things because we trust in the Lord. But the demonic curses are great, including in music. There are certain songs that are purely demonic, satanic.

We need to pay attention to what we bring into our homes, to the center of our families. There’s much disrespect in Christian homes. If you have cable, you can watch Christian programing. Little by little you will achieve more sanctification in your lives. Movies with blood and gore, the children grow up watching the violence and horror, it’s not good for them.


All these things are involved in satanism. Here in Brazil where people practice “macumba” (occult/ voodoo/ witchcraft), imagine in Haiti, Panama—I’ve been there—even in the United States (they practice these things). I visited Columbia Pictures where Sylvester Stallone was filming, and I saw up-close how many things are consecrated to Satan.

Several movies (The Exorcist, Rosemary’s baby) are purely satanic. Some people in church, are so clueless that they still rent movies like this.

Brethren, don’t mess with these things. Let the devil be in his own corner. Let’s believe in Jesus, but know that demons also have power, understand? What shall we do then? We must consecrate ourselves (to the Lord) and only bring into your homes things that will sanctify us.

Another thing, let’s be faithful when it comes to tithing. The devil whispers in Christian’s ears when it’s time to give by saying things like: You give money to the pastor when he rides in his nice car and you walk. He eats well. So, the Christian gives only half, and this opens up doors for demonic activity.


Brethren, be watchful, pray, and be faithful.”
