The New Age movement means different things to different people. However, most New Age topics have one basic theme: personal spiritual development.
The New Age movement is dynamic, rapidly growing, and gaining momentum. Spirituality means getting in touch with your inner self. Methods include meditation, yoga, sexuality, prayer and other things that exercise the mind.
Special stores and shops exist which sell new age and spiritual paraphernalia. Such items include crystals, candles, incense, tarot, runes, pendulums, drums, and more. These tools can help a person transcend into various states of consciousness, and thus ultimately help a person turn within to look inside oneself for understanding and awareness. People tend to confuse spirituality with religion. Although religion depends on spirituality, spirituality does not depend on religion.
