The Secret Exposes Therapy Clients to the Occult

Early in my career as a psychotherapist, I came upon the Law of Attraction (LOA) in the most unlikely of places - a court-mandated therapy program.


I was a pre-licensed therapist tasked with a number of court-mandated groups, such as DUI, domestic violence offender, parenting, and adolescent intensive outpatient. We periodically showed our groups educational videos from the agency’s media library.


One day, a colleague shared that she played The Secret (2006) in one of her DUI groups. I checked the library, and low and behold there stood a copy of The Secret. It soon made its way throughout the agency's therapy groups without much discussion or inquiry amongst the therapists and interns.

The Secret positioned itself as delivering ancient, secret knowledge (namely, LOA) from the clutches of the elite into the hands of the masses. The movie enticed viewers with occult knowledge and the prospect of manifesting wealth.


Law of Attraction Infiltrates Mental Health Treatment

How did something like this end up in a therapeutic recovery program? Around the time The Secret was released, the mental health field was accelerating its integration of “ancient wisdom” and the like into contemporary psychology. The positive psychology movement and mindfulness modalities (i.e. mindfulness-based stress reduction, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, etc.) were also in full swing and backed by research.


The Law of Attraction espouses developing a positive mindset to attract what one desires from the Universal vending machine. Though not psychotherapy in and of itself, LOA intersects with positive psychology, cognitive therapies, and mindfulness modalities through the reshaping of one’s thoughts and mindset.

There’s bleed over from the occulted world of Universal Law into mental health. As a therapist, I observed (and engaged in) the use of gratitude practices, vision boards, visualization, meditation, mindfulness, affirmations, synchronicity, and more.

Though these interventions can and often do produce positive results, to the undiscerning these benefits may actually be deceptive signs and wonders that draw people in need of healing into the occult.



There's No Substitute for the Holy Spirit

When dealing with the LOA (or even secular positive psychology or cognitive therapies), the words of ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu might pique one’s interest:


"Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny." - Lao Tzu


There’s certainly truth and wisdom in his words. But, now let’s shift to a biblical perspective:


“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:3-5)


Catch the difference?


A Mindset Without Jesus Robs You

Today as a new Christian, I notice that LOA-inspired treatment still makes its rounds in segments of the mental health and self-help communities, and has infiltrated Christianity - most notably in the prosperity and word of faith movements.


When we attempt to change our thoughts and mindset without Jesus front and center - when, instead, our gnostic-fueled desires consume our heart - we’re deprived of our identity in Christ. We’re blocked from receiving God’s grace and cultivating the true fruits He desires for us.


“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”
- Galatians 5:22-23

She’s a former psychotherapist who branched off into a spiritual counseling practice that included shamanic healing, hypnotherapy, and channeled energy readings. She was on the verge of starting an Akashic record reading business for her quickly growing Instagram community when the Lord gave her ears to hear and eyes to see. Now, she’s focused on grounding her spiritual formation and spiritual identity in Christ, introducing her children and homeschool to the Lord, and respectfully solidifying her faith-walk within a multi-generational household of non-believers. She’s interested in writing about institutional occult indoctrination, spiritual warfare, the occult roots of the divine feminine, and new age to Jesus mothers and parenting. Krista is a participant in Teresa Yanaros' Clarity Accelerator Academy and is over the moon to serve the Kingdom and support new age to Christ deliverance work as the Managing Editor of “Real Stories” at Spirit Sanctified.


INTERESTED IN THE ACADEMY? If you are a Christian who left the new age, apply to join the CLARITY ACCELERATOR ACADEMY. The Academy takes the entire process from start to finish of getting oriented after leaving the new age, grounding into theology and spiritual warfare, deprogramming new age lies, renouncing Satan's influence, remaining delivered, and establishing a firm context for Christian living and spiritual formation, bible study, how to pray, how to share the gospel, how to build your testimony, how to share your testimony, and put it ALL into this academy. IT WORKS. People's lives are being transformed by this framework, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Jesus, for deliverance!
