I have seen a few claims here and on other forums that if you meditate or get hypnosis, then the door is open for demons to come in. However, I cannot find a source for this idea. Do you really believe that quieting the mind is dangerous? If so is there a Biblical basis for this? What about our ordinary state of mental chatter? Can a demon really get through to someone who is in meditation that cannot get through when that person is worried about their to-do list, what they are going to have for dinner tonight, etc?

mmm- I disagree that the body is more susceptible to possession during an OBE. You outer body is still connected to the physical body through a cord, or life-line that cannot be broken unless death completely occurs. In fact, what does happens during a genuine possession? Does the physical body’s own soul leave? No- it is just suppressed by the possesor and once a demonic force is made to leave the spirit of the body is no longer suppressed and becomes active again as the conscious inhabitant.

If established practitioners and authors such as Alan Watts, Jack Kornfield, Phillip Moffitt, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Pema Chodren (just to name a few; sorry if I overlooked your favorite meditation author), all believe meditation is safe to practice (plus safe to practice on your own if you do not have access to a teacher) …then that’s good enough for me.

Personally, I have yet to experience any evidence that demons exist anywhere other than in our own minds.

The belief that a demon can enter your body during meditation is Spiritual Urban Myth. Many who follow a strict religious upbringing have been informed that meditation is something used by pagans, and devil worshipers to bring themselves closer to evil spirits. It is then passed on to congregations through the pastor or other church members that you shouldn’t meditate. (Trust me I have had Christians tell me you shouldn’t meditate.) It is no easier for a demon to poses your body during meditation than during a normal day. During meditation your body is still fully intact to the spirit.… Read more »

Christians dont like any non-christians, especially Buddhists, Hindus and Pagans.

Im a Pagan that harbors a lot of resentment towards christians, and I believe meditation is very positive, and the only type of meditation that is evil, is meditating on christian beliefs or the bible.

Many christians have the false impression that christianity is spiritual, but the more I study christians, the more they are just a bunch of egotistical, pompous, self righteous bigots that dont seem to understand true spirituality.

Any other way than God’s way will lead to your destruction. Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is disaster. To ignore or disbelieve God’s word is stupidity.

Even the hard core proponents of eastern meditation practices say that one must be very careful. Look it up.

A demon can get to anyone who isn’t close to God. If you meditate or not makes no difference.
