Meet Priscilla Muñoz, 28 years old, from Los Angeles, CA. Young, smart and successful, she participated in the New Age/Higher Consciousness movement for two years. Overtime, she was led to believe in past lives and at one point, even saw herself & her former boyfriend as reincarnations of Adam & Eve, Jesus & Mary, the Divine Mother & God. Below is her testimony on how she was deceived through the New Age/Conscious movement, and how she came to know the truth through Jesus Christ.
“The True Hero in (HIS)tory” by Priscilla Muñoz
Before I met Jesus, I was traveling around the world, searching for answers.
“I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick” Ezekiel 34:16.
I was a twenty something year old young woman originally from California, living in New York City.
Though I had accomplished everything according to the world’s standards: a graduate degree, good job, good paycheck, I still felt a sense of emptiness in my soul that I couldn’t ignore. I often gazed at the stars and ached for a deeper meaning of life. I wanted something more than what the world could offer and was willing to let go of everything I had to find it.Through several self-help seminars, I quickly became an active partaker of New Age Spirituality, a thought system that views man as divine, as co-creator with God/Higher Power/Universe, and as the hope for future peace and harmony in the world. Over time, I applied universal spiritual principles and practices to my life, including creative visualization, meditation, and “I AM” affirmations. I let go of my old life in New York City and decided to become the Heroine of my own story. In the following two years, I traveled across the country, started my own business and met my “twin soul.” Together, we went on a grand adventure and manifested the life of our dreams. All seemed so perfect—I thought I found the missing piece of my soul and our love was infinite. Until…my “twin soul” abruptly passed away.
“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” 1 Peter 5:8.
After he died, I felt heartbroken and confused about his death. I questioned why we had so many spiritual experiences together and the reason for our “twin soul reunion” before he passed away.
One of our experiences even paralleled a “twin soul reunion”:
While we were in nature one afternoon, I saw what I thought was energy around him and exclaimed, “Stop right there. You are whole and complete as you are and when you experience yourself as whole and complete, you get to see the world as whole and complete.” He nodded his head, like he knew deep down what was happening.
Right then, he took my hand and we walked until we ran into a large, clear space with dirt on the ground.
Taking a deep breath, he exclaimed, “This is it. This feels good.” I continued to follow him with complete trust and awe at what I was feeling inside. We headed towards a thick, long log and sat down. Taking another deep breath, he grabbed my hands and looked intensely into my eyes.
“One whole being plus another whole being equals infinity,” he said. At the time, I didn’t know what he meant by this statement. I was captivated and believed that he just revealed some ancient secret to me. Later on, I realized that he was declaring the divine reality that is reflected in Eastern religions. In his mind, we reached a level of consciousness that was equal to God.
I felt unashamed and exposed in front of him.
In that moment, he asked, “How does it feel to feel free?”
“At home,” I whispered warmly.
“Step into that home.”
“It’s like I knew it existed and now…I’m feeling it.” I sighed and began to silently weep.
“Feel that…” he said, supportively. I continued to cry with a smile of relief.
“Now when you’re ready, knowing that world that maybe only existed inside now exists all around you. This is your real world. When you’re ready, open up to that imaginary as your real world. It’s your dreamland here.”
Following his passing, I became curious about reincarnation and the afterlife, and almost immediately began to receive spiritual guidance from spirits whom I thought were Angels of Light and my twin soul. Every piece of the guidance I received confirmed the belief that it was my time for my twin soul to leave Earth in order to further the mission of raising Christ consciousness in the world. I was led to think that my twin soul reached Christ Consciousness and ascended into the fifth dimension. As his twin soul, I was still here to awaken my own Christ Consciousness and fully experience heaven on earth. Click here for more information on Christ Consciousness.
This direction eventually led me to dive deeper into the idea that our “twin soul” love was transcendent, even through different dimensions in the Universe and he would help me fulfill my soul’s purpose on Earth from the spirit realm. After being “enlightened” with this insight, I was led to do something that was completely out of character. At this point, I was far gone, and nearly had no control over my mind and body. I was guided to believe that in our past lives, my twin soul and I were Adam and Eve, Jesus and Mary, the Divine Mother and God. In order for me to ascend into the fifth dimension and be one with God again, I needed to fully realize I was one with the Divine Mother and reveal the purity of my heart exposed and unashamed to him in the spirit realm.
A few minutes later, I walked outside of my house and stared at the sun, meditating on what I was about to do. At that moment, a man came out of nowhere and called me, “Excuse me, I see you looking up at the sky. What are you looking at?” I turned around and proceeded to tell him about my two year spiritual journey and what I was about to do. He firmly answered in reference to my twin soul being in the fifth dimension and helping me, “But…he’s dead. What about death?” I responded to him with a New Age occult belief engrained in my mind, “Love transcends all, including death.” Looking at me with teary eyes, he sorrowfully yet sternly responded, “Nice to meet you, Priscilla” and walked away. To this day, I don’t remember ever telling him my name. Strolling back to my house in wonder, I ignored this man’s effort to shake me from my trance and eventually acted on the spiritual guidance that clouded my mind. I traveled about eight miles from my house and laid down in the middle of a sidewalk, exposed and unashamed with my heart surrendered to “God” in the spirit realm.
Days later, I found myself sitting in an unfamiliar hospital in the state of Arizona adamantly thinking that what I did on the sidewalk was simply unconventional. In my eyes, “God” told me to do it and I obeyed. During that week, my family who became Christian in the last two years drove to the hospital in Arizona from California and patiently relied on The True Living God to reach me. When they arrived, my stepmom named Grace, sat down to talk with me, “Priscilla, God would not ask you to reveal the purity of your heart to Him in the spirit realm. God already knows your heart. God is All-Knowing.” Her statement left me shocked and bewildered. I thought to myself, “Who told me to do this then?” That evening before I went to bed in the hospital, I fervently prayed, “God, whoever you are, wherever you are, what’s the truth?!?”
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” John 10:10.
The following day, my roommate in the hospital told all of the patients she was possessed by Satan. The principles of the New Age/Higher Consciousness movement dictate that there is no good or evil, no right or wrong, all is perception, and there are many truths. These beliefs were still heavily conditioned in my mind so when I heard her comment, I didn’t think much of it. With my New Age/Higher Consciousness mindset, I figured she may have had negative energy or a dark spirit in her, but that’s all. That evening, she sat across from me at a table, looked me straight in the eye and declared, “I wanted you dead.” Shocked by her words though still programmed with occult beliefs in my mind, I ignored her. The next morning, she approached me and circled around my body repeatedly. She didn’t stop until the truth finally clicked for me, “Oh my…God is answering my prayer. Evil exists, and it devoured me. Satan wanted me dead. I could’ve died on that sidewalk. God is showing me the truth.”
By The True Living God’s mercy, I was released from the hospital without a penalty for my actions on the sidewalk—the only plan was for me to move back to California with my family. When I arrived home, my stepmom, Grace, clarified The Truth with me. She explained the story of Adam and Eve in the Bible, “Priscilla, when Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, Satan tempted Eve to believe that if she ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, she could be like God. Eve believed Satan’s lie, ate the fruit, and then Adam ate it too. That’s when sin and death came into the world.” Then it clicked, “I believed I could be like God. The New Age/Christ Consciousness Movement teaches you that you can be like God! Did Satan lie to me too?” As if she sensed my newfound understanding, Grace confirmed, “Satan devoured your mind and body because you believed his lies.” Nearly shaking from the reality of what I experienced in the last two years (starting with a self-help seminar), I got up from my seat and admitted, “I did believe Satan. But how could he take advantage of my pursuit of love? Or my grief?” She gently responded, “Because he’s evil; he’s a liar. The Bible says he’s the father of lies.”
“In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; Incline Your ear to me and save me” Psalms 71:2.
Through many people and His word, The True Living God showed me that the New Age/Christ Consciousness spiritual principles I applied to my life the past two years were considered occult practices, necromancy, and sorcery. The occult beliefs were slightly twisted truths in the Bible. The spiritual guidance I received and the energy I felt along my journey were not my twin soul or Angels of Light. They were evil spirits and Satan disguising themselves to be whatever I wanted them to be in that moment. Soon after, I met with a Pastor and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. The next day, my Dad told me “Priscilla, guess who’s speaking at our Church, Christ’s Church of the Valley, down the street for the first time this weekend? Frank Sontag! He was a New Age Guru for over 35 years and came to know Jesus 6 years ago.” When Frank shared his testimony at the Church, I knew The True Living God was continuing to reveal Himself to me, as well as the deception in the New Age Movement.
As I was reading my Bible for the first time that day, I came across the scripture where Jesus says, “I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). Immediately, I felt God speak directly to my heart. “Ohhh myyy,” I murmured out loud. “God made the way. He made the way for me to know Him. I didn’t need to do and could never be good enough to connect with God. God is Holy and He, Himself did the work in the person of Jesus Christ for me to know Him.” Suddenly, I felt small, filthy and embarrassed by everything I had done throughout my journey. He saw me, all of me, and I was scared out of my mind. I wanted to hide and knew I deserved hell for all I committed against Him. In tears, I realized how huge of a sinner I am—the entire time, it was my pride, arrogance, and selfishness that was separating me from God.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
I met Jesus that night–not the Prophet, Good Human Being, or Teacher that the New Age/Higher Consciousness Movement portrays Him as but The True Living God who came down from heaven by the power of the Holy Spirit and became man 2,000+ years ago to save the world from the powers of sin and death. I encountered The True Savior of our souls who bore the sins of the world on His shoulders: suffered, died, and was buried to pay the penalty for our sins past/present/future (Romans 6:23). I understood for the first time that He became The Lamb of God, the perfect sacrifice who shed His precious blood on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins (Romans 8:23). Remorsefully, I cried and cried thinking, “How could He forgive me for what I did?” In that moment, The Lord told me that His blood was sufficient for the forgiveness of my sins. By His mercy, I don’t need to experience the punishment for my sins. He already paid the penalty for them; my debt is clear. By His grace, I’m saved and promised eternal life with Him. He went to the cross so that one day, I could be reunited with Him forever.
The Lord then reminded me of the man who came out of nowhere in Arizona and challenged me with the question, “What about death? He’s dead.” I remembered this man’s teary eyes when he heard my response, “Love transcends all, including death.” My heart sank and I realized in that second, “God sent this man to me.” I wondered, “Was he an Angel?” With tears streaming down my face, I came to realize what God was trying to tell me He did for me: His Love transcends all—He conquered the powers of sin and death for the world. Through Adam, death reigned on Earth, but through Jesus Christ, we are made alive (1 Corinthians 15:22). God conquered Satan once and for all for humanity through His work on the cross (Hebrews 2:14). His Love shown through the cross is unconditional, transcendent and infinite throughout the generations and hearts of men/women. He Himself defeated the powers of sin and darkness when He rose from the dead by the power of His Holy Spirit and ascended into Heaven. Knowing The Truth this time, I surrendered my whole heart to Jesus and gave Him my life to use for His glory.
“He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds” Psalm 147:3.
As my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ healed my mind from two years of New Age/Christ Consciousness brainwashing and demonic oppression. I was sitting alone in my room when His Holy Spirit removed every dark thing in and around me. His blood shed on the cross wiped out the lies in my mind that I thought were truth. I felt like I got my soul and body back; like He broke a spell I was under for a couple of years. When these miracles happened, He showed me that He was the One who was meant to make me whole all along—no one and nothing else could do that for me but Him, for in Jesus Christ, we are made complete (Colossians 2:10). In an instant, The Lord also removed the pain and grief I carried from my former boyfriend’s passing. I no longer felt a yearning for him and had no desire to connect with the spirit realm. I recognized in this miracle that Jesus really does heal broken hearts and comforts us in our sorrows. Thereafter, Jesus removed the scales from my eyes as He did to Saul on his way to Damascus (Acts 9:18-19). I could suddenly see that Jesus is who I was looking for all along: He is the light of the world that we all know deep down in our hearts is real.
After I met Jesus, I stopped searching for the meaning of life and now rest in God’s promises as His Adopted Daughter.
“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him–1 Corinthians 2:9.
I’ve found peace in my heart in reconciling my relationship with God. Of course, I still struggle in the midst of trials and tribulations, and I fall short every day. But I know who my Lord and Savior is now, and He has overcome the world (John 16:33). I’ve come to know a love that quiets my soul and gives me rest. Just realizing that God has done all of the work through Jesus Christ for all of humanity to meet that “missing piece” in their hearts is relieving. There is hope for all of us in Him! Most importantly, I’m glad that I now know the True Hero in (HIS)tory: Jesus Christ, the Mighty One who still saves people’s souls, and is the same yesterday, today and forever.
In retrospect, God was relentlessly pursuing my soul throughout my journey and I know He is running after all of those hearts who are still searching for answers to the deeper meaning of life in the world. He moves mountains for us to come to know Him. While you’re looking, He is knocking on the door of your heart. As you’re running away, He is inviting you to come home. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in your past or how hard you feel it is for you to turn away from a particular sin (i.e. addiction, spiritual practice, belief, etc). He is bigger than all of them! If you haven’t met Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior yet, I want to encourage you to place your faith in Him. He went to the cross so that one day, you too could be reunited with Him forever. He defeated the powers of sin and darkness so you too could start a New Eternal Life in Him. He embraces you just as you are and you will see that you are forgiven and loved with an everlasting love.
(Poem by author Priscilla Muñoz)
In despair, I searched for my Neverland; my Emerald City.
Though I felt pain and misery,
I knew there had to be a place of refuge and tranquility.
They told me to find it in a man, a career, and even a house, but I said,
“No, this place is close, as close as my heart.”
So, I sought and I sought, flyin’ and roamin’ around, here, there,
and everywhere from dawn until dark.
Like Eve, like Paul, like the child who lost it all,
I fell for the old Serpent’s lies, and slept with the enemy.
Too foolish to see, too vain to concede,
I wandered with the Angel of Light and embraced his façade in all his beauty.
They told me to keep makin’ magic, keep livin’ my dream, so I did and alleged,
“Yes, this place is real, as real as can be.”
So, I sought and sought in his lavish playground, ‘til the God of this world blinded me.
In confusion, I wept for my Neverland; my Emerald City,
“Oh, isn’t it close? As real as can be?”
White walls all around me, nurses tried to tame me, You opened my eyes to the adversary:
Perverted bliss. Rubber gum. Fake mist in a palace slum,
I couldn’t believe he deceived me.
A battle like I’ve never seen, Your Angel Armies came to intervene;
they fought and fought ‘til my heart surrendered to Thee.
My God, my Savior, I cried at Your feet,
“How could you ever take me? Your Grace and mercy are too vast for me.”
Like David, like Jonah, like Mary Magdalene in her mess,
You delivered my soul, and ransomed me from the Prince of darkness.
Underserving and wretched, You told me I’m Yours,
clothed me in white and walked me through Your corridors.
A marvel too bright, an esteem too deep;
by Your cross, I’m forgiven, by your Love, I’m freed.
My Neverland; my Emerald City. You were close the whole time.
In despair, in misery, in confusion, You wanted me.
Only a whisper away, I couldn’t see.
My sin obscured Your divinity.
To live and move and have my being in You,
You tore down the veil and ripped it in two.
No longer a captive in slavery, no longer a mystery,
The Way for us to be one was made known.
My Hero, My God, my Savior, Jesus Christ.
You set eternity in my heart from the beginning and only You,
only You could bring me Home.
