‘Satan Is After the Children’—Christian Influencer Says ‘Yoga Barbie’ Can Lead to Demonic Possession

“Yoga Barbie” could lead to children being possessed by demons, says Christian influencer Yasmeen Suri in a May 3 Facebook post that has since gone viral. Suri shared in an interview with The 700 Club that, having previously been involved with the New Age movement (as well as the occult), she now feels called by God to warn others against it.

“‘Yoga Barbie’ is at Target on the shelf,” said Yasmeen Suri in her Facebook post. “Satan always comes as appearing innocent. He will never come with horns and a pitchfork. This Barbie has 5 guided meditations. Remember,  Yoga IS Hinduism. You cannot separate the poses from the religion.” 

‘Yoga Barbie’ and Yasmeen Suri’s Background

In its description of the “yoga Barbie,” which is actually called the Breathe with Me Barbie, Mattel says, “This meditation-themed doll celebrates one of her favorite ways to recharge using lights and sound—mindfulness meditation…Kids simply press the button in Barbie® doll’s necklace to activate one of five guided meditation exercises that use light and sound effects to inspire their own practice.” The Barbie comes with a puppy who has four thought bubbles to help kids visualize different emotions.

Suri’s post continues:

Each pose is designed to invoke a hindu deity in the spirit realm. I have seen children get possessed by demons. This Barbie also teaches you deep breathing(pranayama). Her pet is also involved. Satan is after the children.  He wants to use them and indoctrinate them for his glory. Then, when he is done, he will destroy them. As your kids grow, they will get rebellious,  depressed and many will be suicidal. You won’t understand what’s happening as a parent. God forbids all practices of eastern religion as a Christian. You must remove all toys and clean your children’s room of all demonic attachments. Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

Yasmeen Suri is a Christian influencer, author, speaker and singer. She shared on The 700 Club in a video dated Aug. 2, 2021, that she was involved in the New Age movement and the occult before Jesus saved her. Suri was born in India to a Sikh family and moved to America as a child. Being bullied as a child led to her wanting to gain control over her life and other people, and she thought spiritual experiences would provide this control.

“I started getting into horoscopes, I started studying about psychics and witchcraft,” said Suri. She said demons revealed themselves to her “on a continual basis,” telling her she had purpose for her life. But her experiences with the occult left her feeling empty. “It gave me power and a sense of control, but there was no answer for me,” she said

One year, Suri asked a friend of hers for a Shirley MacLaine book for her birthday. Her friend gave her a Bible instead, showing her Deuteronomy 18:9-14. The passage says:

When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God.

The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.

“Those Scriptures jumped out at me from the Bible,” said Suri, “and they jumped off the pages, and they actually went right through my spirit, and I was convicted of sin for the first time in my life.” 

At the time, Suri found herself encountering many Christians, who answered various questions about Christianity for her. Meanwhile, her boyfriend grew violent and she started having nightmares. A Christian friend warned Suri that her boyfriend would kill her and that God wanted her to leave him immediately. Suri broke down crying when she heard this message. She told The 700 Club, “I knew it was God even though I didn’t know God.” She left her boyfriend and moved in with her brother, who invited her to church. There, she realized how much God loved her and eventually trusted in Jesus.
