Over the past couple years we’ve watched as Katy Perry went through what some call an awakening and others would call a mental breakdown. The core of the issue that Katy has talked about openly in various interviews has been a conflict between two parts of her, one being the 33-year old Hollywood star Katy and the other being the 13-year old Christian identity Katheryn who Katy says was split off by alienation and childhood trauma.
In an interview with Glamour, Katy talked more about letting go of childhood trauma and doing a “soul overhaul.”
She explained her desire to undo her stardom saying, “I wonder if I just press the reset button and surrender to love and surrender to loving myself that I would still be able to have all the things that I dream I could have as Katherine Hudson, and I knew it would be a delicate balance.”
“If I want to have that true balance, I have to step into being Katheryn Hudson…I’m preparing to do a big soul overhaul very soon that I’m nervous about. I want to emotionally elevate myself. I don’t want to hold on to childhood trauma anymore. I want to grow into becoming an adult. I’m preparing myself for having a family of my own someday.”
The split within her was so drastic that both personalities were fully developed, Katheryn she initially said was about 11 years old. In a 2017 YouTube therapy session, Katy spoke about wishing to return to and integrate Katheryn who she has shown throughout her music as a pure, innocent fighter, referencing her as her “heart.”
Through tears, Katy explained why she shaved her head. “I’m really strong as Katy Perry, but sometimes I’m not as strong as Katheryn Hudson. People talk about my hair right? And they don’t like it, or they wish that it was longer. I so badly want to be Katheryn Hudson that I don’t even want to look like Katy Perry sometimes. And that is a little bit of why I cut my hair is because I really want to be my authentic self.”
The therapist brings up the controversial topic of Katy’s soul saying, “you had an instinctual truth, and that caused a spiritual alienation that you had to go against your own calling or your own individual soul.”
Katy jumps in, “My soul yeah, but I loved all of it but I always just felt like I was called for more, and it was out there, and I didn’t know how to get it, so I guess I started singing.”
Some Christians have contemplated whether it’s too late for Katy Perry to return to Jesus because soon after she became famous, she did an interview in which she explained her path to stardom. She joined the music industry by going from a gospel singer at 15 that “didn’t work out” to pop music after she “sold her soul to the devil.” Years down the line, Katy Perry is very openly showing regret about how she attained her fame.
She recently spoke on transcendental meditation alongside Bob Roth at the Vatican’s “Unite to Cure” conference. The same core issue was brought up throughout the talk. Katy explained how she uses mysticism and transcendental meditation to “become her authentic self.” Before meditation, Katy says she was “short-circuiting” or shutting down while she was in the middle of doing something.
“I knew that I had to take care of my mental health and my mind, which is the greatest asset of my body besides my heart,” said Katy.
“When I meditate my whole brain opens up. It feels like a halo is ignited around my head and its like I’m clearing out the cobwebs of my neural pathways and finding new neural pathways to ignite.”
It’s through this eastern process that she says she is expanding herself. In 2013 she elaborated on her beliefs telling Marie Claire Magazine, “I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God.”
Transcendental meditation or TM is a dangerous eastern practice of emptying one’s mind, and either intentionally or unintentionally opening it to demonic forces. In 1981, during the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Conference in India, a spokesman stated, “The entire mission of TM is to counter the ever-spreading demon of Christianity.”
During the TM meeting at the Vatican, Bob Roth talked about how he is being funded with millions to bring TM to inner-city schools in an attempt to cure violence. Roth plans to take the technique to schools in the Bronx and to Syrian refugees. He proudly notes that his foundation is now an NGO registered with the United Nations. Roth tells Katy that by lending her voice to the cause, she’s “saving thousands of children’s lives.”
The conversation turns to the topic of Katy’s age, and she says, “For me, I love young people honestly, if I didn’t know how old I was, I’d probably be like maybe 21. I was 13 for a really long time.”
According to Katy, in less than a year, the 13-year old that was split off and in hiding has grown up eight years to the maturity of a 21-year-old.
Jokingly Bob Roth says, “I was going to say 6.”
“6? No, I’m definitely 7, I’m definitely conscious.”
Katy’s mom has been with her on American Idol and at the Vatican, where Katy commented that her parents are traveling ministers. While still shrouded in thick New Age ideology, Katy referenced Biblical teaching as she spoke saying that God created the universe with his voice and that she was taught from a young age that her body is a temple.
Seeing the deception that Katy has been under, as Christians, we should pray that she repents and turns to the God of the Bible. We should also pray for the young people she has used her celebrity status to influence and draw astray, may they see through the lies and draw near to Jesus, meditating on the word of God. May Katy’s regret serve as a warning for those attempting to follow her path.
