"The prohibition on using Square to sell “occult materials” and whether or not an item falls under that prohibition is dependent on the purpose for which the item is sold."
The claim that an item you are selling can perform a supernatural or metaphysical act or can be used in a way that is outside the normal physical limitations of the item, would be considered an occult item and would be prohibited under this section 6 of Square’s Terms.]

The Rite of Exorcism
A sacramental by which a duly appointed person, generally a priest, is authorized to use the special power he receives to drive out the evil spirit. Until recently this power had been conferred in the minor order of exorcist. Nevertheless the power could not be used except by a priest who had received the special and express permission from ecclesiastical authority. The Church, in her directives to exorcists, warns them not to be too ready to assume that there is diabolical possession, since there are so many cases of hysteria or other kinds of emotional disorder that may seem to be "possession."
Moreover, explicit directives are given on how to deal with ostensibly possessed persons, notably to exercise great care not to be either deceived or intimidated by the evil spirit.
Over the centuries the rite of exorcism has been long and detailed, with a variety of ritual forms, numerous signs of the cross, recitation of psalms, the Athanasian Creed, prayers to St. Michael, use of holy water, and periodic adjurations. Among other formulas, the priest declares, "I adjure you, ancient serpent, by the Judge of the living and the dead, by your Creator, and the Creator of the world, by Him who has power to send you to hell. Depart immediately with fear and with your army of terror. Depart from this servant of God [name], who takes refuge in the bosom of the Church."
Private exorcism, which is the private adjuring of the devil from harming someone, may be performed by any priest, and also by a lay person; for example, by the use of sacramentals such as holy water or by invoking the name of Jesus.
So you can see that through the very words that the Catholic & Christian religions are using themselves, they are considered as an Occult by the very meaning of Square. The priest is authorised to use the special power which is the exact same thing as getting an attunement to the likes of Reiki or Ancient Egyptian Seichim (which is the origins of Usui Reiki). This 'Special Power' is metaphysical and if an ordinary person said to a priest that they have a 'special power' then they would tell you that it is an act of the devil.
My personal opinion is that if there is judgement made by the likes of Square Reader to suspend accounts because they are considered an 'Occult' that any organisation that is selling 'Holy Water' which is created by the use of spells, chants, prayers to increase the metaphysical properties of the water to be used in the metaphysical extraction of a lower octave frequency from a human body, then this too is an Occult Practice and that no religious organisation should be using Square according to their terms & conditions.
Spirituality, New Age movement is all about the belief in one god, it is realising that the world is a magical place and breaking free from controlled belief systems. At the time of the creation of these ancient texts, yes, there were things that occurred that they needed to be mindful of, the dark ages were indeed dark. You could not trust anything but as the original earth is created by those of the Orion system and not that of some magical energy known as God as the bible dictates then those texts are to be considered 'entertainment purposes' as they are indeed incorrect and are even considered to be teaching false wisdom. They must no longer be deemed an authority on the topic of creation because they, the ones who manipulated the books don't even know it themselves. This also goes for those that claim to be 'spiritual' that also do not understand the nature of creation but pretend to preach it, yet, all of this... EVERYTHING!!! It all has a place to help those who seek, find their own truth and to educate them, whether it is true or not, find the path that is right to them.
The bible scripture Luke 6:37 reads:
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
Does this mean that the likes of Square & Religion need to cease with making judgements and preaching of what is to be considered occult and allow the magical creation of consciousness to express itself in whatever way it wishes to express? Life is magical, life is beautiful, life is the greatest miracle and is about exploration and we should enjoy every single moment that we can, even the bad times.
Finally, I do hope that this pondering of mine does make one think what exactly is an 'occult' practice and if a crystal & mineral store has an account suspended for the sale of a crystal that brings abundance, so does that of a church for their holy water that is deemed to have metaphysical properties and been 'exorcised' by a person with 'special power'. It is the same thing, they are both considered occult and they too should also be suspended or a law suit for discrimination should take place as both practices are one in the same.
