"Mindfulness" Can Create False Memories: it's a fraud

Mindfulness, the form of meditation embraced by business leaders, celebrities and the NHS, might not be so beneficial for the mind after all, according to research.
The practice, which emphasises paying deliberate attention to the present moment, can implant false memories, a study found...
“Our results highlight an unintended consequence of mindfulness meditation: memories may be less accurate,” said Brent Wilson, a psychology doctoral candidate at the University of California.
“This is especially interesting given that previous research has primarily focused on the beneficial aspects of mindfulness training and mindfulness-based interventions.”
Mindfulness has become widespread in academic research and popular culture.
Numerous studies have reported its benefits for physical and psychological disorders. Celebrities such as Emma Watson and Gwyneth Paltrow, the actresses, have extolled its merits.

Again showing the DANGERS of psychology and New Age practices (and that neither is a science). It's a fraud.

Scripture tells us in Phil. 4 to think on whatever is true. False memories and New Age practices are not true. It is God who defines what is true.
Isa 45:19  I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob, 'Seek me in vain.' I the LORD speak the truth; I declare what is right. 

Satan is the father of lies. No Christian has the right to be involved in such demonic things. 

Joh 8:44  You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
