I’ve gone through Prayer To Confess Occult Involvement several times, had been adding it to Novenas I’ve been doing. I use a TTS reader and listen instead of read when I can. I was still ‘picking up’ (or so I thought) things at times but then again I don’t know if that was just normal deductive reasoning. I still get temptings now and then but don’t act on that garbage. It’s like I don’t ever want to mess with that junk again yet I also know it was so a part of my life for so long. Kind of grew up with junk in the family then I was really stupid. Had a tarot reader 2 generations before me. I believe I will eventually purchase Ransomed from Darkness: The New Age, Christian Faith, and the Battle for Souls (Paperback). Right now I’m broke though & job hunting.
I have friends still in the occult, many I’ve lost touch with, one is a pagan and one is wiccan. She claimed it was in a Catholic school where she first found a book on wicca. I probably let that feed into my anti-Catholic days for a titch but like I said I returned to the faith last year. So very out of sync yet it seems. I haven’t cut them out of my life but they’re nowhere as much a part of my life as they were. Have another friend that used to hear footsteps & all the rest of that junk but she left that behind too. She’s not Catholic. In 7th grade I read books on ESP, ghosts, etc and yeah after I left home I didn’t even bother going to Church. I used a ouija with a friend, started automatic writing & gave readings to people. Know now all that junk was demons.
If the 7 steps was in the prayer for occult involvement then yeah I did go through it, if that’s something else then no I didn’t.
And I see ‘putting on the armor of God’ there too, learned that in my time away. I know I could have learned it as a Catholic.
