A former Jewish yoga teacher believed that practicing yoga was leading her to health and wellness. Then, she found herself in the New Age Movement and fell into much deceit. But Jesus intervened and saved her.
Jewish Yoga Teacher
Dana Weiss grew up in a Jewish household. She loved her culture and heritage, but she was more connected with the New Age beliefs. She was a yoga and meditation teacher, a crystal healer, and an energetic artist. And yet, Dana kept on looking for the thing that would satisfy her.
As she kept on seeking, she found herself deep in the New Age and was under spiritual attack. She tried everything to be free from the demonic oppression, thinking that she just didn’t find the right “modality” for a breakthrough.
Then, someone told Dana about Jesus as the freedom she needed. Initially, she was resistant to the idea because of being Jewish. But she was desperate.
She confessed, “I was searching for truth. I thought I knew the truth, but I did know energy. I was an expert at energy.” And she found the “highest energy” inside the church she was invited to.
Dana went to church not knowing what to expect. When the choir started singing Dana saw something she could not explain.
“I saw the energy of God. I had no idea what I was seeing but I knew I was seeing the highest thing I ever saw,” she recalled.
So, after the service, Dana ran to two men to seek help. They led her to receive Jesus as her Lord and Savior.
But after prayer, she felt things leaving her body.
“I had no idea that things could live inside of you. And when things came out of me, that peace and wholeness that I had been seeking throughout every gateway New Age drug was finally found.”
