The spirit of the age contradicts all that Christ teaches, and many reject or leave the Church to satisfy their longing for the supernatural in esoteric traditions governed by the spirits of the underworld. The occult is now an unashamed feature of modern life, yet discussion of its danger often results in snorts of derision. Like many wounded by life and dissatisfied with the emptiness of modern existence, Sister Anastasia hungered for healing and thirsted for genuine spiritual experience. This propelled her into an intense spiritual search. Abandoning Christianity, she plunged into the depths of ancient, elemental witchcraft. In this raw and unflinching account, which reveals the pain that drives a person to seek release through magic and the suffering that results from worship of demons, Sister Anastasia traces what it means to be healed and transformed by the love of Christ and the blessings available to those who accept His call to be reborn in the kingdom of God.

About the Author: Sister Anastasia grapples with hard truths related to the unseen realm. A member of an Orthodox monastery, she received her MA in Theology from St Vladimir's Seminary. She has long studied ancient praxis and modern addiction in all its varieties, which informs her writing on purification, inner prayer, and the role of the Church in a rapidly changing world.

    This book is a must-read. Not really a book, but an existential cry from the abyss for love. It is not simply Sister Anastasia's voyage, but a story for an entire generation that has fallen into confusion, despair, and helplessness. By following Sister Anastasia on her path and joining her in her questions, doubts, and fears, we are in fact following our own path. This wonderful book proves that the yearning for an encounter with divine love that exists within all of us never finds its fulfillment in any kind of earthly 'power,' but only in a person: Jesus Christ.

    More and more people are turning to psychedelic drugs and occult rituals seeking mystical experience and enlightenment. Sister Anastasia was one of them but was delivered from a living hell by Christ, and now warns others. You Are Mine is not only a captivating account of conversion and deliverance, but it is also a practical guide to identifying and resisting demonic enchantments that masquerade as healing-and, celebrated as liberating by post-Christian pop culture, they successfully seduce countless souls.
