I have this coworker who fancies herself as very “spiritual” and always corners me in the break room and raises odd topics of discussion. She has mentioned that her parents were Catholic mystics and that she had a bad experience growing up in the catholic church and has left the faith. She says that the church she goes to now is a “bible believing church” and she has some pretty warped views on what certain passages in the bible mean. I grew up as a non-denominational christian and some of the things she talks about do not seem at all christian to me nor have I ever heard any of it discussed in christian circles. I know that I really shouldn’t even concern myself but I am just really curious what religion this would be considered and if anyone else has ever heard of any of these beliefs. Some of the things she talks about are:
*Praying on dead people and raising the dead
*Time travel (she claims it is in the bible)
*Jumping into other peoples dreams and interpreting what that person was dreaming about
*vibrational frequency/ auras
*healing people with oils
*She seems to also incorporate a lot of Jewish traditions into her beliefs.
Is anyone familiar with any of this or have any idea what religion this could be or what it is most similar to? She calls herself Christian, doesn’t like the word “religion” and claims that her beliefs are bible based. However as I’ve said earlier I have never been to a church that has talked about any of these topics.
Also can someone please explain to me Catholic mysticism? I am not very familiar with what that is.
