Does the Church dissmiss these things as magic or New Age myths, or do they believe that they have some merit? Or do they not have any position on them at all?
Serious answers only, please.
Catherine V: Yes, I understand that occult and superstition are forbidden for Catholics. My question is; do crystals, chakras, auras, etc. fall into the category of occult and superstition; or not? I’d like to learn more about them, but I want to make sure that my religion doesn’t consider them to be sinful.
Catherine: I’ve read a little about chakras, and I went to a crystal shop last summer and the woman there said that crystals were like a religion, but it was okay for Christians to use them but I’m a little skeptical. I don’t know much about auras other than some people can see them but most can’t.
