9 Signs Someone is a Fake Guru

On the mystical path, there lies many pitfalls. One of the more common pitfalls are the fake gurus.

They know you’re seeking a better way, they know your path means a lot to you, and they know that if they sell you the perfect solution, they can reel you in and start milking you like a cash cow.

These are masters of deception and masters of manipulation. There’s quite a number of them out there and they’re lining up to take you under their shady wings. Their teachings are false, empty, mundane, regurgitated, and only serve to maintain the status quo, all the while deluding their followers into believing they are following a most high-caliber being and studying the most ultimate teaching.

Some of these gurus are quite famous and influential, while others are more obscure and choose to operate on the fringes. I’m not here to name any names, as I believe the responsibility lies in you to learn to raise your discernment. But when it comes to making progress on the path, discernment is key. Without it, the presence of lies in a teaching or the attachment to a false guru can set you back for a while.

No matter how devoted you might be to a particular guru, always remember to keep constant vigil on your discernment, your intuition, and hone them both like a knife. With that said, here are 9 Signs That Someone is a Fake Guru.

1- THEY SPEAK IN COMPLEX ESOTERIC TERMS.  A fake guru will try to entice you with  big, convoluted brain-twister explanations. Sometimes they’ll try the total opposite by speaking in short, simple, ambiguous ways that have you completely stumped.

They’ll make vague comments like, “All is nothing.” or “Nothing exists.” 

Huh????

It only means they have something to prove and are trying hard to impress you. Your admiration and devotion is very important to them, so they have to use fancy language to attract you. It’s a form of seduction used to mesmerize and keep you dazed and confused so that you keep coming back for more.

Their teachings are packaged in such sophisticated jargon that no one actuality ever gets it. But no one dares to say anything, for fear of looking unsophisticated. Sometimes, the emperor has nothing on, but no one dares to speak out.

the-fake-guru2-  THEY TRY TO ENTERTAIN YOU WITH CHEAP TRICKS. Some fake gurus will come at you like high-level magicians. They’ve got a bag full of tricks and are ready to put on the performance of a lifetime for you.

They materialize small trinkets, sweets, and ash from out of nowhere. They levitate, make things vanish, and produce all kinds of optical illusions to make you think you’re dealing with a glorified holy being.

Again they’re trying too hard to impress you and entice you with their cheap entertainment. Most of it doesn’t even help anyone.

This is not to discredit their ability, as many times they really can perform such acts. But know there are a many people who have mastered mind over matter on earth. Just as there are many people who have other unusual talents or abilities.

Just because someone has an unusual talent does not make them a high-conscious being.

Cheap tricks are a separation tactic so that you can believe a guru has special powers mandated from God and you can’t ever come close to that.

The questions lies in their intentions and how they want you to see them. Are they serious about helping you or are they serious about elevating themselves above you?

3- THEY TELL YOU WHAT YOUR EGO WANTS TO HEAR.The whole point of studying under a guru is so that he can point out your flaws and raise you to the next level of consciousness.

What’s the point of having a guru that coddles you all day and makes you feel like you are fine just the way your are?

If your guru doesn’t challenge you, then you’ve got a problem.

A lot of gurus try hard to fit into the mold your ego has created for them. You know, the kind where they’re so soft-spoken, so kind, and so loving that you just never grow. They’re not trying to rock the boat. They got you thinking that love is very tolerant and never challenges anything.

This kind of guru cannot afford to upset you or risk losing your business. In fact, they have to walk on eggshells around your ego and whisper sweet murmurs into your ear by telling you exactly what you want to hear.

If your guru is not trying to shake you out of your illusions, then perhaps it’s time to find another one.

4- YOU MUST WORSHIP THEM OUT OF BLIND FAITH. Self-importance is big in the fake-guru community. Some fake gurus will act as if they are all-knowing and practically God. These types of gurus are never wrong and never make mistakes.

They usually come with a string of blind followers who have bought into the same delusions and will fight you to the death to defend his honor. These are usually not the most joyous people either. Quite similar to their leader, they’re usually very self-important people concerned with fancy rituals and pageantry.

They treat the gurus word as law and bow down to her as if she is some kind of goddess.

Some of these gurus even come with pending criminal allegations and their followers still don’t even care to raise an eyebrow.

If a guru actually allows you to bow down before them, then it’s quite obvious they have a superiority complex.

If he allows you to place him on a pedestal, then you know you can pass on that one. We are all Divine Co-Creators and no one is above anybody else.

5- THEY CHARGE AN INSANE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO STUDY WITH THEM.  Wow, I didn’t know that making progress on the path could break your budget!

It’s understandable that some gurus will charge a small fee, ask for donations, or accept services in return. In life, you can’t always get something for nothing. Everything on earth has a value and a price attached to it, even time.

However raising your consciousness should not be a luxury product that is exclusive only to the rich. This is similar to the healthcare industry charging you insane amounts of money to save your life. Your spiritual development is equally as important as your health, and any guru with a high level of consciousness will know that this is something that should be made available to all.

Financially exploiting those who come to you for help is not of the highest consciousness.

If your guru has his hands deep inside your pockets, you have to wonder if he’s really trying to help you or if he’s just trying to get rich?

6- THEY HOLD BIG BUDGET, POMPOUS EVENTS. Have you seen your guru on a billboard lately? Perhaps you’ve seen them on television advertising for the next stadium event.

Not that there’s anything wrong with informing your students or holding events. If a message needs to be spread then by all means hold an event.

However, in the realm of fake gurus, there are certain types of gurus who love to hold big budget, high falutin events that usually come hand in hand with big money and big fame.

These self-proclaimed  gurus who take part in the fanfare may not charge high rates as they are not interested in taking on personal students. However, they get rich anyway through massive ticket sales. Not to mention the attention they receive from such a massive following.

Their events are usually filled with fluffy words of encouragement and then later they get people to line up for hugs. These are the attention seeking celebrity gurus whose main concerns are fame and money.

7- THEY CHANNEL ALIENS.  Ok, this is where it gets weird. Some gurus will not only make a strong attempt to get you under their spell, but they also channel beings who have a special message for you.

And sometimes they’re from another galaxy.

If you fall for this, you’ve been watching way too much Star Trek.

Just because someone can channel entities doesn’t make them advance enough to be your guru. It’s actually become quite common for people to tune into other realms. This is really of no great feat. Simply invite these entities, and trust me, they will come.

Some of these “galactic beings” have managed to get so many true seekers to deviate from their path. They are experts at mixing truth in with lies and make everything sound so good. These are pure masters of deception and distraction to non-discerning followers. These impostors come straight out of the depths of the astral realms and are there to milk you of your light.

If a guru is claiming to channel aliens, he will only attract those who would rather keep their minds in outer space and in places that don’t even concern them. Outer space is irrelevant to your life on earth that is taking place right here and right now.

You want a guru that will help you raise your consciousness so that you can take care of your business on earth.

8- THEY NEVER MENTION THE CREATOR.  Some gurus have a deep aversion for the Creator and they fail to mention God in any of their teachings.

Their main intent is to stand between you and God so that you never form a communion.

If your guru is evasive and fails to talk to you about your Creator, your origin, or forming a direct inner relationship with an ascended teacher, then he’s probably not looking out for your best interests.

If he uses vague words like universe, love, and light, but always skirts the topic about the Ultimate Creator, then you know you got a fake one in your hands.

9- THEY WANT YOU TO BE CO-DEPENDENT ON THEM.  The door should always be wide open when it comes to your relationship with your guru. You should be free to leave when you feel you’ve had enough and want to move on to a higher teaching.

One guru will never have all the answers or the ultimate teaching. There’s is always a higher teaching up ahead.

His main purpose is to be the bridge that will take you to the next level of your journey. Any true guru should know this and not set themselves up as the end all be all.

If he tells you that there is no teaching higher than his, then he basically wants you to become dependent on him.

If your guru has an issue with you leaving and moving on, then it can only be that he needs you more than you need him.

***

So have you followed a fake guru? If you have, there’s no reason to beat yourself up for it. You needed their teachings at that point in your life. So it was not a waste of your time nor did you waste your money.

A fake guru is always a lesson in discernment, among many other lessons.

You will at times need this during your journey in order to take you to the next stage. The fact that you are able to look back at the situation is cause for a celebration, as it symbolizes your growth from that level of consciousness.

The problem lies in falling for a fake guru for an entire lifetime. The more you can admit that no human being on earth has the ultimate truth, the less inclined you will be to claim any guru as perfect, and the less inclined you will be to attaching yourself to a teacher and never letting go.Screen Shot 2018-10-11 at 12.19.14 PMFor more in-depth information on this topic please visit the links below:

9 Things That Change When You Find the Mystical Path

So you’ve found the mystical path.  Not only do you realize that so much has changed, but you also realize that so much more will change. Not everyone is open to change, but you, you’re a trooper. You’re ready, you’re willing, and you’re on the edge of your seat, shouting, “Bring it on!”

But hold your horses! Perhaps, you haven’t realized what you’re in for?

Sure transcendence is your sacred right, but sometimes major change can catch you off guard if you’re not prepared for it.

To give you a quick glimpse of what lies ahead on your new journey, I’ve put together a list of 9 changes that will most certainly take place in your life.

Preparation is key to making things much easier and less complicated, and that too applies to the mystical life. So with that said, here are 9 awesome things that will change once you’ve found the mystical path.

1- YOUR ENTIRE OUTLOOK ON LIFE.  Life takes on a new meaning once you’ve found the mystical path. It’s as if a haze has been lifted and you can now see so many things much clearer than before.

Most of what you thought was so important, you realize aren’t all what it’s cracked up to be. You no longer want the same things in life and so many things that had special meaning to you have now become meaningless.

For example, perhaps you thought that education, career, money, and material objects were of the utmost importance. How could you help it? It’s what you were taught by your society. Sure you gotta work, earn money, and buy things to live in this world, but you come to find out that it’s not the end all be all in life. Needless to say, these things can now take a back seat, as you come to realize that some things are more important.

You also find that you no longer chase after the same things as everyone else. You’re no longer impressed by riches, fashion, fame, or whatever else is trending. Fitting in with the flock and the popularity contest is not of great priority to you and you find that you’re better off not obsessing about such inconsequential things.

You start to analyze if what you are currently doing serves you, and if it doesn’t, you take action towards the things that do. Your future is now dependent on following your inner calling and your personal growth is what matters most.

2- THE QUEST FOR MORE.  It’s always fascinating how when you find out the world is not as you once knew it, you also realize that you don’t know Jack! There is so much more than meets the eye in the world of politics, economics, education, health, and spirituality.

Your newfound sense of curiosity now has you getting your hands on as many books as possible – not to mention your eyes and ears on as many podcasts, websites, and videos as possible.

Knowledge is infinite and you will never know all there is to know. But it sure is fun to take a crack at it! 

As long as you cry out that there must be more, then there will always be MORE.

3- YOUR IDENTITY.  You’ve walked away from your old identity as a simple human being. You realize you’re not just a mere bag of flesh and bones, nor are you a sophisticated monkey or miserable sinner.

You are more than the body and you will go on after the body.

You are an energetic being having a mystical human experience.

You were created in the image and likeness of your Creator. You are a Divine Creative Being with the power to command the universe.

Yes, and you’ve been creating all along. You now just have to do so intentionally.

4- THE PRACTICE OF DAILY RITUALS.  You can’t expect to have a new identity and a new outlook on life without expecting it to change your everyday life. Yes, your daily habits and rituals will certainly be affected by your new mindset.

You will prioritize some of your time to make room for these new things that you find most important.

You’ve now come to see that your physical body is the vehicle you will use to accomplish your greatest goals in this physical world. Manifesting your goals in life is really no fun when you’re suffering with pain and sickness. So now your daily routine includes caring well for your body so that you can have the best experience and the best possible health throughout your lifetime.

Perhaps you’ll start a journal and even meditate on a daily basis, because you now know  that everyday “quiet time” and everyday “me” time is all too important for keeping your sanity on a nutty planet like earth.

You may also start to practice commanding the universe by reciting decrees, affirmations, and invocations out loud. This is an all-too-ancient practice that still works like a charm, even in today’s world. Want to be a powerful co-Creator with laser-like precision? They say practice makes perfect!

5- HOW YOU SPEND YOUR LEISURE TIME. With your newfound reality, there will be many things you no longer take for granted. For one, it will be your time.

You know you are on this planet for a limited time, you know you made certain plans before you got here, and you know you don’t have time to waste. You also know that everything you do has meaning and consequences.

There will be many activities you use to take part in that now no longer interest you.

There are so many things in the world that are useless, distracting, and even detrimental to you reaching your highest potential and you now opt to ditch them all.

You consciously choose to no longer participate in the party life. Smoking, drugs, alcohol, porn, junk foods, toxic relationships, promiscuous sex, violent movies, mindless television, and video games could all take a hike. You got better things to do with your time!

They all just serve to take up your time, make your life miserable, and divert you from your life’s purpose. Many are just mere forms of escapism. But as a mystic, you welcome tackling your personal issues head-on and no longer need the escape that these activities are good at providing.

Because you no longer drink, party, and have sex, everyone thinks you’re a goody-too-shoes and that mystics live a very boring life. But that’s far from the truth. You now realize that others live a boring life, and that’s why they have to drink, party, and engage in promiscuous sex.

6- YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS.  This is one change that you will notice immediately. As you shift internally, others will sense this and act accordingly.

Many things will be revealed. You will come to see who actually values you as a friend or relative and who doesn’t.

Since you are no longer willing to participate in some of the activities that you used to, some may even find you boring and no fun. Some relationships will fall to the wayside, as people may reject you and call you a weirdo. And some you will choose to simply walk away from on your own.

But it’s not all violins, heartbreak, and tears here. You will eventually gain new friends that have more in common with you. This has always been how the universe works.

Your vibe will always attract your tribe.

7- YOUR EATING HABITS.  Now that you realize your physical body is a critical factor in manifesting your life’s goals, you want to treat it as best as you can.

You become very selective with what you put inside your body and the foods that you eat are now more important than ever.

You choose to eat a simpler and cleaner diet. This means no more toxic or heavy foods. You significantly cut down on your intake of meat and animal products. You may even choose to go completely vegan.

You know that certain foods are not conducive to keeping your vibration high. As a mystic, vibration is king. You understand that physical matter and the physical body can easily affect your mental, emotional, and spiritual faculties, and you don’t want anything slowing you down. Not only can certain foods clog your arteries, but they can also clog your higher faculties so that you are no longer sharp.

With cleaner eating habits, your thoughts become crystal clear, your body becomes lighter, not to mention your appearance and health will also improve.

8- YOU NOTICE THE SIGNS FROM THE UNIVERSE.  Our universe is a living entity who is always in communication with you. By default, it sends out a constant stream of information to all co-Creators so that we can all make the best decisions when it comes to making progress on our paths. The signs are there for your growth and expansion in consciousness, as this is the ultimate accomplishment as a Creative Being.

As a Creative Being your actions and thoughts send out impulses to the universe at all times.

The signs you get back from the universe in the form of events and circumstances are actually the feedback letting you know how you are currently doing. This is kind of like a universal report card showing you where you are succeeding and where you need to make adjustments.

Prior to finding the mystical path, you had no idea what was going on around you. Things seemed to happen randomly and you had no idea why they were happening.

Now that you are on the mystical path, the signs have become more apparent. You not only notice the obvious ones, but many times even the subtle ones. You find that the more you take notice, the more signs you uncover.

You find that now so much more makes sense out of life. Funny and strange things start to happen around you, what some would even call miracles. The truth is, they were always happening. It’s just that now you finally take notice.

9- YOU BECOME MORE INTUITIVE.  The whole point in following a mystical path is so that you can learn to make your own decisions, so that you can get better at it, and become confident with your decision-making skills.

As a mystic, you will find that the better you are at making decisions, the better you can handle the difficult situations that sometimes crop up in life.

The art of making decisions is not dependent on any particular formula, as there is no cookie cutter solution to every problem. Every circumstance in life is unique, and the rinse and repeat process cannot always be applied. This is where intuition comes in.

Intuition is the transistor radio that picks up the signals that you get from the universal radio station. It is also the guiding compass that points the way to the next part of your journey.

As a mystic you become more in tune with your intuitive faculties and you start to use it more often. It’s one of those things where if you don’t use it, you lose it. So you try your best to use it as often as possible and keep it well-sharpened.

You no longer need to consult with anyone to make a decision. You can now do that for yourself. You can also do away with the fortune tellers because they can’t tell you what you don’t already know for yourself.

You’re no longer lost or afraid in this world. You know that the universe has got your back and that you’ll always be ready to catch the ball.

9 Ways to Stop Following the Herd

Throughout the ages, society and mankind have always had a set of invisible rules, dogmas, and doctrines that we’ve all had to follow. So many of us don’t even bother to analyze where they came from or find out who put these rules and ideas into effect. Most of us just take them at face value, thinking that it’s just the norm and that’s just how things are.

Subconsciously, we reason that if we oppose any of it, things just might get a little uncomfortable for us. We reason that if we follow our own set of rules or try something different from the norm that perhaps things might even get difficult. You worry that others may look at you strange, you might lose credibility, people may put you down and laugh at you, or worse yet, they may even ostracize you!

Here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself:

Who ever mandated that you had to go with the standard programming?

Who are these puppet masters controlling you from a string?

And last, do you actually enjoy being a clone to everyone else?

If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’re one of those who sense there could be more to your self-expression than the status quo. I

‘m guessing you want to be free to be who you truly are regardless of what others think.

I’m guessing you want to be free from the herd and the hum-drum consciousness that usually comes with it.

If this is the case, then these 9 tips below were created for you. No, you don’t have to be stranded out in the pasture lost in a field of black and white. You have the right to stand out in bright colors if you so choose!

LET-THEM-STARE

1- KNOW YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU ARE.  It all starts with how you identify yourself. Are you just a mere human being or are you a Divine Creative Being? Society doesn’t want you to question this, but it is an important question you will need to answer for yourself.

Did you know that you have amazing built-in creative powers quite similar to your own Creator? You are a co-Creator with the Universe. You have the right and the power to call into manifestation whatever you see fit.

Our experiences and Divine Powers are different from everyone else so that we could all stand out from each other?

Did you know that a Divine co-Creator takes no crap from anything on earth imposing it’s self-expression?

Once you accept who and what you truly are, you will find it quite difficult to worry about what others think of you. You will simply find joy in the Being you were created to be and in expressing yourself the way you were created to express yourself.

2- KNOW YOUR PURPOSE AND DIVE INTO IT.  For many of us, life doesn’t seem to have a purpose. We think it is all meaningless, all is random, and anything goes. Without a strong sense of purpose you may fall into depression, subject yourself to unnecessary abuse, or worse yet spiral into a crapload of self-destructive habits and patterns.

It is your purpose that is the guiding force to knowing that everything you do matters and accepting that it is perfectly ok to be different.

Your purpose is not one big master plan that you will know all at once. It takes shape in different forms throughout your life and will reveal itself gradually at different stages.

At times it will be to raise your children to the best of your ability. At other times it may be to learn a new talent or profession. And at other times it may simply be to work on your psychology or spiritual development.

Your purpose is meant to build on itself, so that ultimately at the end of your lifetime you become the much more evolved person you had planned to be.

Knowing your purpose means you have to sometimes tune out the world and go within to see what visions you get or what is tugging at your heart. You can do this by simply sitting alone with yourself, contemplating, and writing down the aspects of your life you care about so much that you are willing to run to the ends of the earth for. If you do this everyday for a short period of time, the answers will eventually come to you. Simply know that the answers will change at different phases of your life.

3- TUNE OUT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA.  This is where you get a lot of your fears and self-depreciating beliefs from.

The direct and subliminal messages are there to mold your mind so that you think that the ideas behind them are true, for the greater good, or that you came up with them yourself.

Messages like, “You are not worthy.”

“You need to look like this.”

“You suck if you don’t have what everyone else has.”

“You must compete with everyone else.”

“Celebrities must be worshiped.”

“Your main goal in life is to work hard, live the American dream, then retire at a ripe old age.”

“And while you’re at it, be sure not to rock the boat!”

If you truly wanted to know where the puppet masters reside, you can start by looking at your mainstream media. You may think you can easily filter out the bad messages or that those few hours of television you watch per night couldn’t possibly do so much damage. However those subliminal messages will get you every time.

Don’t fall for the tricks. Just shut them out!

4- LEARN TO LOVE SPENDING TIME ALONE.  Are you afraid to face yourself? Afraid of what you might find? Afraid to face your fears? Perhaps even afraid of your own power?

Well, if you want to stand tall and stand out from the crowd, you must be confident in who you are. To know who you are you must be willing to spend some time learning.

Spending time alone is one of the best ways to face yourself and find out who you truly are.

So go ahead and take that solo-vacation. Go for that long walk by yourself. And please close that door and tell everyone not to disturb you for the next three hours. You deserve the time alone and you will thank yourself for it.

5- GET AROUND.  Always staying in the same environment tends to keep you trapped in a reality where you think the entire world is the same and the rules that dominate your reality are the same everywhere.

However, that is far from the truth.

What’s strange in your neck of the woods could be widely accepted just a few miles away. And what’s normal in your country is sometimes highly inappropriate on the other side of the planet.

Changing jobs or moving to a new community can sometimes help you to see this.

Even better, traveling to different parts of the world (or your own country) can have huge effects by sometimes shaking up your reality. A good dose of culture clash works every time to get you out of your current mindset and realize that your own society’s rules hold no power. It becomes obvious that other societies are getting by just fine without them.

6- DRESS UNUSUAL.  What better way to practice confidence and individuality than by deliberately and physically standing out from the crowd.

Start by adding some bright colors and bold patterns to your wardrobe. Wear mismatched socks. Dye your hair purple. And if you’re truly gutsy, how about that chicken suit that you’ve always wanted to show off?

It doesn’t have to be forever, but it will serve to get you out of your shell and not be afraid to be different.

So let them stare if they must. It will be your game and your gain.

7- TAKE A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA. Of course, with the advent of social media we can now all stay connected with our friends, family, and acquaintances from across the globe. But, it does have its downsides, as it can turn us into total narcissists obsessed with how others see us.

Again, it is the obsession with other people’s opinions that’s got us all conforming to molds and society’s standards and not ready to stand out on our own.

The more likes we get, the more we feel accepted, and the more inclined were are to conform to a certain image in order to keep the likes coming.

If you are struggling with this all-too-common phenomenon from our modern world, perhaps it is time to take a break from social media. A break is not permanent, but it will give you the time to reflect on your previous behavior to see whether or not it was beneficial to your self-esteem. It will be the best thing you can do to break the cycle of the need for applause and approval.

Remember, the power to live a great life lies in you, not the camera. You don’t need to post every meal, vacation, or new outfit to the world for validation.

8- QUESTION EVERYTHING. Know that most of what you’ve been taught about the world around you are half-truths or complete lies.

When you learn to question everything you will come to know that there is so much more than meets the eye and so much more to learn.

Accepting things at face value not only inhibits creativity, but it also puts the mind to sleep.

How can you expect to be unique and stand out from the crowd when your set of beliefs is the same as everyone else?

Inherit a sense of curiosity and take joy in researching, digging for truth, and learning new things. When everyone says “Ok”, you say “No way!”

9- HAVE DAILY REMINDERS HONORING YOUR INDIVIDUALITY.  The herd has always had a strong pull on so many of us. Many times it will act as a single entity trying its best to keep you from breaking free.

When attempting to separate, excuses, guilt, shame, and all kinds of paraphernalia will reach out to grab and pull you back in.

What best way to avoid getting snatched by those grubby hands and forgetting the fact that you are unique and Divine than by having daily reminders.

So go ahead and use post-its where you see fit. Talk to yourself in the mirror. Mount quotations on the wall. At first it will seem difficult, but with constant daily reminders you will come to accept this and it will eventually become your living reality.

Whatever you do, don’t forget who You are and your Great Potential. You were born to stand up, stand out, stand proud, and to stand your ground.
