The New Age Movement (NAM) is not in itself a religion. There is no centralized leadership or formal organization, and New Age practitioners (sometimes called New Agers) are not required to hold any particular creedal or doctrinal beliefs.1
Rather, the NAM is comprised of groups and individuals who share a similar life philosophy or worldview. Generally focused on personal spiritual transformation, New Agers endeavor to usher into the world a new era of harmony and enlightenment.
The New Age attempts to create “a worldview that includes both science and spirituality”, while Hess noted how New Agers have “a penchant for bringing together the technical and the spiritual, the scientific and the religious”.Although New Agers typically reject rationalism, the scientific method, and the academic establishment, they employ terminology and concepts borrowed from science and particularly from the New Physics.
The occult knowledge is an aggregate of learnings going back to our ancient past. Its purpose has been to show people ways to liberate their soul. To accomplish this, a seeker needs to first clear their perception that’s been occluded by falsity and lies.
The New Age entertains itself with misconceptions, as Buddha is God, and contrived and convoluted views of the world. Often very elitist, and uncaring of human suffering and ethics. They frequently choose animal suffering as their platform.
Also, they believe New Age is a psychology and erroneous views as Positive attraction.
Instead of becoming our own saviors, we are still waiting for one to arrive. This is the same thing the narcissist does to us by putting us in the trance called ‘future faking.’
Shinran said that it is sad in these times people are still looking for auspicious signs.
There is always and excuse for why this stuff doesn’t work. Like Astrology chart is not always accurate. Sometimes it takes time for the stars to work. May we are not winning the lottery because our Pyramid we put the ticket under is not pointing due north in an exact manner.
Psychology todaysays: In a sense, New Age gurus are akin to postmodernists within academia (see my earlier Psychology Today on the faux-intellectualism of postmodernism). They dispense meaningless drivel that masquerades as profound truths whilst in reality it is a mere exercise in obscurantism. Watch how I can easily become a New Age guru. Given my scientific work in evolutionary psychology and my Middle Eastern background, I am an evolutionary quantum hakim (EQH) and as such I channel cosmic energy using the EQH frequency. Because of my ability to tap into this ancient vibrational field, I have received the following three universal truths:
1) Compassionate intentional is the illumination of the cosmic soul.
2) The transfiguration of cosmic consciousness is the astral oneness.
3) Harmonic convergence is the quantum energy of biofeedback singularity.
The prescription for being a New Age guru is the following: 1) Create verbiage that appears profound but that is otherwise meaningless. People will attribute their inability to understand your sentences to their own failings rather than to your charlatanism; 2) Be charismatic and self-confident in your delivery, and perhaps deceive yourself as to the veracity of your words.

Not all New Agers are bad, they want something good and some are good people. But they believe in things that distract away from reality. On the other hand New Agers are narcissistic because they want to be special, the Universe is about them. They come off as “know it all’s” with all the answers and believe the the Cosmos pours divine knowledge into their heads.
The New Ager is also very materialistic. There are so many items and books to buy. Clothes, knickknacks, dream catchers, amulets, talismans, and much more.
The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) offered a prize of US$1,000,000 to anyone able to demonstrate a supernatural ability under scientific testing criteria agreed to by both sides. Based on the paranormal challenges of John Nevil Maskelyne and Houdini, the foundation began in 1996, when Randi put up $1,000 of his own money payable to anyone who could provide objective proof of the paranormal. The prize money grew to $1,000,000, and had formal published rules. No one progressed past the preliminary test, which was set up with parameters agreed to by both Randi and the applicant.
Even today no one has won or even came close to winning the Jackpot.
