9 Reasons Why We Cry In The Shower

There’s nothing wrong with getting in touch with your emotions – male or female. Many walk around stone cold acting as if such a thing is silly and inconsequential. We bottle up years worth of overdue and toxic emotions, thinking we’re fine.

“Everything is good. Everything is fine”, we say. And then we wonder why we can’t get close to people. We wonder why we can’t open up to people. We wonder why our most intimate relationships just don’t have the pizzazz that it needs to make it sparkle. We wonder why in a world with billions of people we still feel so alone.

In our youth, we are told “Don’t be a crybaby!”, “You’re a boy, and boys don’t cry!”,  “Crying is weak and crying is for sissies.”

In our adulthood, we become ensnared in the trap of the daily grind. We are told to be strong. Our jobs tell us there is no room for feelings in the workplace. “Suck it up”, they say! “We have money to make!”

We get very little time to process what is happening to us and that includes the tortured emotions we are generating. These same emotions that end up getting buried for years, many of which we end up taking to the grave because we did not take the opportunity to acknowledge or express them. These same emotions that end up putting us in the grave, because it’s the pent up emotions (in our emotional bodies) that manifest disease in our physical bodies.

It’s no wonder so many resort to crying in the shower. I’m not going to say it’s the perfect solution to our emotional needs, but I will say that it’s therapy to many. Sometimes we have no other way of releasing our pent up frustrations, and if crying in the shower is a way to help that, then so be it.

Which that said, here are 9 reasons why I believe we end up crying in the shower.

1. IT’S PRIVATE.  Sometimes, all we want is some privacy and for many, the only place to get it is in the shower. The door is locked and no one can barge in on you. There is no one to see you cry, so you don’t have to explain to others why you are crying. Sometimes, only you will understand and it just feels good to not have to explain your emotions to anyone. Sometimes, it’s no one’s business but your own.

2. IT’S COMFORTING.  There’s just something about warm water that is comforting to our bodies. It envelops you like a warm cozy blanket and surrounds you like a hug. Hot water has a way of relaxing your muscles when you are tense, especially if you have one of those super cool shower heads where you may even get a massage. When you are cozy, you can more easily let your guard down and allow the tears to start flowing.

3. TRICKLING WATER SOUNDS.  Just as the sound of water will make you tinkle, for some, the sound of water trickling can also well up the eyes. When sad, it becomes an involuntary response and you become unable to hold back the tears.

4. IT’S DECOMPRESSION TIME.  With life being as hectic as it is and almost everyone being on the go-go-go, there is hardly any time to process anything. At work you are kept busy and the commute home may not be any better. Even at home and during your spare time, you are busy taking care of your household, your family, or focusing on matters of leisure. The emotions you’ve kept buried all day will oftentimes rise to the surface only when you are finally alone in the shower. These are the times when there is nothing else to focus on, nothing else to keep you busy. These are the times when you can no longer ignore the feelings, the times when you hit a realization, the times when the memories come flooding in, and the times when your Highest Self will start speaking to you.

5. IT’S A PLACE TO GET CLEAN.  The shower is the main place we go to get our physical bodies clean. So why wouldn’t you associate it with getting your mental and emotional bodies clean as well? When it comes to toxic emotions, you subconsciously want to wash them off. You relate them to dirt on your body and you want to wash them away, let them flow down the drain, and feel clean again. This is why you love to jump into the shower after a long stressful day, even if you may not be physically dirty. You want to wash away the day, wash away the troubles of the world, and start off fresh again.

6. IT’S WHERE WE ARE NAKED. The shower is also a place where you are always naked. It is a place where you can be naked without shame, a place where the only option is to be naked, a place where you can allow yourself to be in your natural state, and a place where you can feel free. Your nakedness reminds you that you can also get naked on the inside and bear your soul, even if it’s only to yourself.

7. IT’S LOUD AND NOISY.  Let’s face it. Most showers make a lot of noise. Oftentimes, the sounds of water splashing can be heard from outside the bathroom door or from an adjacent room. For those who don’t easily cry, it can be a daunting experience to hear yourself cry in silence. Your rawest emotions are sometimes intimidating and may even make others uncomfortable. In a world where emotional expression is glossed over and shunned upon, we are sometimes unable to deal with anyone crying. If you know you’re about to drop some major tears, the sound of the water will definitely help to cover up your sobs so that no one, (not even yourself) will hear you.

8. IT’S MAKEUP FREE.  This one’s for the ladies. If you happen to be one of the women who wear make-up then you know quite well that in the shower the make-up is already off. It’s a place where you don’t have to worry about messing up your foundation or your mascara running. It’s a place where you can be free to cry as much as you want, where you can allow as many tears to run down your face without having to dab your eye every so often with tissue.

9. IT’S FAMILIAR.  Showering is something we all do on a daily basis (well hopefully 😉). It’s a routine that has become a ritual. Most of the time it takes place in the home, the place where you can feel the most safe and the most in control. Humans are known to be creatures of habit. So is it a surprise that when you are in familiar surroundings, it becomes easier to lower your guard enough to deal with your emotions? When a part of you is about to go out of control, it’s always reassuring to know that you can at least be in control of another part – and that is your surroundings.

*********

It’s great to know that so many of us can cry. This is a sign that we can still feel and that we’re not the cold sterile beings that the world is trying to make us into.

Perhaps in the future when humanity has learned to embrace our truest nature, and raw emotions are no longer so intimidating, we won’t have to resort to crying in the shower.

But until then, we will need ways to release our deepest frustrations and a place where we can be honest about our feelings, even if it’s only to ourselves. So if crying in the shower is a way for many of us, then it will just have to do for now.

9 Reasons To Stop Watching Television

I don’t watch television. I haven’t since 2011 and find I don’t even miss it. When I’m able to stay current using the vast selection of online media that’s out there, why would I need to watch television?

It all started back in 2011, when I had lost interest in watching anything that was on. I called my cable provider, cancelled my subscription, and liberated myself from mainstream media’s mental enslavement.

But it wasn’t until years after the chatter machine was turned off that I fully realized all the negative ways it had affected my life.

I now appreciate the silence I have at home and will never subscribe to that noise machine ever again. Since gaining freedom from this all-too-common trap in today’s society, my life has improved significantly, and I can promise you that yours will too if you so choose to pull the plug.

So without further ado, I’d like to give you 9 reasons why you may want to stop watching television and why you’ll probably have no regrets about it.

1- IT’S A TIME WASTER.  There are so many things you could be doing with the time you watch TV. Study has it that the average American watches 35.5 hours of television per week. That’s practically a full-time job! Can you imagine all the stuff you’ve been missing out on? All the books you could have read, all the conversations you could have had, all the talents you could have cultivated? Realize you will continue to miss out on these insanely enriching activities as long as you continue giving your undivided attention to your beloved TV set.

What about the entertainment you ask? Well, we all have to ask ourselves just how much entertainment do we need? There comes a point where you have to wonder if your quest for entertainment stems from you not having anything better to do. If we were all passionate about our dreams, with a burning desire to dive into them, would the first thing we do when we have some free time is plop ourselves in front of the TV and zone out for hours on end? I don’t think so.

It’s time that many of us looked inside ourselves and found out what we really want out of life and then just go for it. Zoning out in front of the TV only helps to keep you pacified and indifferent to your life’s goals. Everyday you are being lulled to sleep with cheap entertainment while your dreams are being snatched away from you. And the worst part is you don’t even realize it.

Do yourself a big favor and choose to no longer let that TV screen keep you from manifesting your dreams.

2- YOU DON’T NEED TO WORSHIP OTHERS.  They want you to worship who? Ain’t no one better than you. Not to say that you’re better than others, but you certainly don’t need to bow down to anyone else. We are all equal in the eyes of our Creator. Needless to say, you don’t need to buy into the celebrity worship culture of today, much of which comes from television.

Television has a way making others seem larger than life simply because they appear on your screen at home. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but these people on your TV screen are not gods. They’re regular people who sit on the toilet everyday and scrub their butts in the shower just like you and me. The fact that they may seem larger than life is because your corporate elitist media would like you to think so. They want you to believe that you are an unworthy sucker and that you need to look up to them because they have all the money, beauty, talent, knowledge, connections, and power. Why shouldn’t you feel left out? They’re part of the inner circle, and you’re not.

Know your worth and don’t fall for the foolishness. Realize that the folks of TV Land have nothing of value to offer you, but they’re desperately seeking your attention. Turn that TV off and choose to no longer give them your time of day.

3- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE PROGRAMMED.  What a great way to mass hypnotize the public than through television. There’s a reason why they call the shows TV programs. And they have a program for everyone. There’s even one just for you.

This is where they program you on what is PC and what is not. What’s cool and what’s not. What’s real and what’s not. What you should want, what you should wear, how should think, how you should talk, and how you should act. You get the gist…

You’re not supposed to think for yourself. That’s their job. You just leave the thinking up to them and all will be well.

Oh, and I almost forgot about those slick subliminal messages and symbols. Yeah, the ones they like to secretly stick in the commercials, music videos, and movies. The ones they’re hoping you didn’t catch. And most of the time you actually don’t. But your sub-conscious always does.

When it comes to the media’s programming, you must wonder what they’re suggesting or the ideas you’ve already agreed to without your conscious knowledge. If you knew what they were, you would most likely reject them at once. This is why hypnotism is required to slip them in. It’s a slick trick, but it works every time.

Your mind is your most precious asset. Keep unauthorized ideas out of your mind and choose to no longer be hypnotized against your own will.

4- TO KEEP THE NEGATIVITY OUT.  Why is it that when you watch the news, all they ever report on is the bad stuff? Does anything good ever happen?

There’s always some major controversial debate. And depending on which network you watch, they always have a side to take. (Why can’t TV reporters just report? Who are they to counsel the public on which side to take?)

If it’s not some controversial subject that they have to instruct you on, then they have all the violent crimes that took place for the day. The thing is, you’re not supposed to think this world is beautiful. In your mind it’s supposed to be a hostile, dark, and scary world. You had better be scared. You had better be on the defense. You had better pray that the sky doesn’t come crashing down. And most importantly, they set it up so that your hero government can come to save the day!

How about all of the crime shows depicting details of violent rapes, shootings, and murders? There’s also all the sexually explicit content they shove in your face? Do you really need to be kept on the horny all day? Could it be that there’s nothing more important than sex in life?

One has to wonder if life is really that morbid? I can tell you from this side that it’s not. But you have to be willing to kick the negativity machine out of your house for you to be able to finally see this.

5- YOU DON’T WANT TO BE LIED TO IN YOUR OWN HOME.  Most people believe everything they see and hear on television. As the old saying goes, “If it’s on TV, then it must be true.” What’s funny is that this saying couldn’t be furthest from the truth. When it comes to the word television, its true meaning is actually staring at us right in the face. Quite simply, it’s a machine that tellslies-to-your-vision.

When you are fed a bunch of lies everyday and believe without question, you build an immunity to them. Particularly if the lies are always from the same source, your mainstream media. Their lies become your norm, your logic, and your reality.

But once you realize there is a world of alternative media out there and have stopped subscribing to the talking heads of the mainstream media, you’re eyes and ears will become quite the bullshit radar they were designed to be. You’ll have multiple sources to compare reality to and will see the varying contrasts between each one. And this is when you’ll get better at detecting truth from the lies and the real from the fake.

I personally would not allow anyone, no matter how expert they claim to be, to come into my home, lie to me, and then take me for a crazy ride. If you don’t want anyone insulting your intelligence in your own home, and if you don’t want to go for that ride, then I’d advise you get a grip on what is reality and seek out other sources for your news and entertainment.

Then after a good dose of truth and reality, you will want to throw that fake lying machine right out of your house.

6- TO SAVE MONEY.  Gone are the days when TV service was free. Today you gotta pay for it all. Whether its cable, satellite, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or whatever else is out there. I don’t keep track anymore. All I know is they’re all gonna cost you.

Why waste your money on something that’s there to lie to you and take up your time? I can think of so many useful things this money could go towards.

How about keeping your money in your pocket and using it to fund an upcoming vacation, to further your education, to start that business you’ve always wanted, or just add it to your savings.

You’re smart like that. I’m sure you’ll find something awesome to make use of all that extra money that you’ll be saving.

7- TO NO LONGER SUPPORT MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THEIR SPONSORS. The more you engage in the programming that the networks have laid out for you, the more you support their advertisers. And the schmuckier you get, and the richer they get.

I won’t imply that television is all about “making that money”, but I will say that money does play a large part in their world.

The puppet masters not only want to have you under their thumb, but they also want to get rich while at it. It’s a win-win situation for them. The higher the ratings, the more they can pitch to advertisers, and the higher the chance for their advertisers to brainwash you into buying their toxic products. Everyone wins (except for you).

Wanna be the perfect pawn for their agendas?  Then by all means, please continue watching television.

8- IT’S BORING.  Ok. How long has TV been around now? Some 70 years or so? Do we realize that it’s still the same old-same-old since the back in the day when it first began?
The same old sitcoms, laugh tracks, talk shows, sports competitions, news broadcasts, politics, celebrity line-ups… The faces may have changed over the years but it’s still the same show repeating itself over and over. Does anything ever change in TV Land???

Who wants to watch these lame-asses on a late night talk show and be conditioned as to what is funny and then cued when to laugh? The laugh tracks are so obvious.

Who wants to watch a bunch of robotic, tight-ass politicians debate over which party (Democrats or Republicans) is more superior? They’ve been at it for more than a century now. Somebody please make it stop!

Who wants to listen to a bunch of self-important celebrity elitists go on as if their word is law, most of which is scripted anyway. The general population can’t even relate to these paid actors. The same ones who will never go off script. And those that have dared to go off script, we know they always end up on the unemployment line.

It’s about time we watched someone else for once.

It’s become quite obvious that with the success of social media, the current generation is much more interested in watching and listening to real people.

It’s becoming extremely painful to watch the people of TV Land, because at this point they’re just plain boring!

9- IT’S OUTDATED.  With the internet era upon us, I seriously think television will die within the next 20 years.

The current millennial generation has absolutely no interest in what goes on in that world. As fast as our world is changing, I can’t imagine what the next generation will care about. All I know is that it certainly won’t be about what those boring dinosaurs have to say on their serious news networks and talk shows.

The glory days of television are over and its days are numbered. The puppet masters know this. This why they’re scrambling to get their networks and celebrities established on YouTube and other web-based platforms before they become irrelevant.

What’s funny is they don’t even realize that they’re already irrelevant.

9 Things They Never Told You About Halloween

Every year millions of people celebrate Halloween. They think it’s a fun-packed holiday where everyone gets to dress in scary costumes, do-up their homes with creepy decorations, and all the kids get to go out trick-or-treating.

If you happen to be one of those who think Halloween is all cute and family-friendly, I’ve got some big news for you.

It’s not as innocent as it seems.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. And sorry to have to crash your party too. But I think you might want to know this.  So without further delay, here are 9 things they never told you about Halloween.

1- HALLOWEEN WAS ENGINEERED BY DARK FORCES.  For those of you that still don’t want to believe in the existence of dark forces, you may stop reading right now. This article is not for you. Feel free to excuse yourself and find some happy-go-lucky Halloween thrills to tickle your fancy. I hear there’s plenty out there on the internet. So bye!

For those that have decided to stay, let us proceed.

Yes, dark forces do exist and this holiday is just another one of their ploys in their quest to steal people’s light.

2- DARKNESS IS ON DISPLAY FOR A REASON.  During the Halloween season, dark images are seen all throughout. Theses images make it into your conscious and subconscious minds. Their main purpose is to harm you spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, and to slow down your growth.

So perhaps your neighbor will be putting out his spooky lawn extravaganza again this year. And you may also have to go past that costume shop with all the creepy displays in the window. The best thing you can do is to pass them by without taking them in.

3- THERE IS NOTHING “FUN” ABOUT BEING SCARED.  Being scared is nothing to laugh about, as it always releases light and opens your subconscious mind to dark forces.

You may think it’s all in the name of fun and games, but you unknowingly place yourself in a position where the dark spirits can feast on your light. They are always waiting for the next person and they never miss a chance.

Everything isn’t la-di-da! Don’t be the next fool.

4- DARK SPIRITS ARE EXTREMELY ACTIVE AT THIS TIME. For those who are sensitive and those who can see past the veil, there will be many dark creatures and entities lurking around at this time of year

Halloween will also bring a black cloud of fear over the nations that practice this yearly ritual. The cloud can be seen lingering for weeks, even after the holiday has passed.

This is not to scare you. This is simply reality.

We call the dark beings out every year. How can we not expect them to show up?

5- HUMANS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR UPHOLDING THE DARKNESS. Consciousness creates reality. This is a universal law and has always been the case.

Humans are co-Creators with the Universe and are always creating reality with their minds. This is the ever-popular Law of Attraction. I’m sure you’ve heard of it.

What you place your attention on will always manifest.

Though Halloween was engineered by the dark forces, it is humans who took the bait and now willingly uphold it.

It’s crazy to think how humans happily work against themselves and on the dark’s behalf each time they take part in the festivities. Every year we bow down and pay homage when we put on the costumes, throw the wild parties, and send our kids out for trick-or-treating.

How humans love to dwell on these dark idiots. And as the universe always says, “Your wish is my command.”

6- OCTOBER 31st IS NOT RANDOM.  The final week of October marks the beginning of the darkest time of the year for most of the nations that celebrate Halloween. In the northern hemisphere, the sun goes down much earlier and it starts to get colder.

This is also the time of year when many people will go into depression. The depression will oftentimes stem from the Halloween pageantry, after taking in so many dark images. It may continue for weeks after that and into winter.

Christmas was meant to be a time of light during the winter solstice, otherwise known as the most darkest days of the year. However, depression and suicides are usually on the rise by the time the Christmas holiday rolls around because those who are already depressed find it hard to join in on the Christmas spirit. They therefore end up feeling worse and sometimes even suicidal.

7- HOLD A PARTY OF LIGHT.  Instead of celebrating darkness why not use that time to celebrate light. This can actually help to counteract all of the darkness that is so prevalent at that time of year.

It is something you can do together as a group. Have your own party with everyone dressed up in costumes of saints and spiritual figures, while invoking light throughout the evening.

And remember, no ghoul costumes allowed.

8- SPIRITUAL PROTECTION IS NECESSARY.  It’s inevitable that no matter how hard you try, you will be exposed to some of the darkness generated by those who take part in the dark festivities.

So, this is not a good time to be slacking on your spiritual protection. Better amp it up right now, to keep any pesky spirits from attaching themselves to you.

What better way to protect yourself than by invoking a strong shield of Archangel Michael’s vibration around you. Use Archangel Michael’s decree or Archangel Michael’s rosary diligently on the days before and after the holiday.

Everyone knows Archangel Michael don’t play. And all dark spirits will know not to mess with you either. 

9- LIGHT WORKERS DO NOT PLAY IN THE DARK.  In every walk of life there are always the fence sitters.  These are the ones who rationalize that as long as they are not wearing a dark costume, then it’s ok to participate in the Halloween festivities.

As a mystic, a light bearer, or a light worker it’s counterproductive to work with the light and then excuse yourself once a year so you can play in the dark.

Don’t stand in both places. Make the decision that you will do your best to protect yourself and your children, and no longer take in the dark images that can wreak havoc upon your manifestations.

You are a conscious co-Creator with the universe. I would not want you to place your attention on something you wouldn’t want to manifest.

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.

Some of these gurus are quite famous and influential, while others are more obscure and choose to operate on the fringes. 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.

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.

2-  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 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.

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

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.

the-fake-guru4- YOU MUST WORSHIP THEM OUT OF BLIND FAITH. Some 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 are quite similar to their leader- self-important and concerned with fancy rituals and pageantry.

If a guru allows you to place him on a pedestal, then it’s quite obvious they have a superiority complex. 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.  Making progress on the path shouldn’t break your budget!

It’s understandable that some gurus will charge a small fee, ask for donations, or accept services in return. But raising your consciousness should not be a luxury product that’s exclusive to the rich.

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?

There are certain types of gurus who love to hold big budget, high falutin events that come hand in hand with big money and big fame.

They may not charge high rates as they are not interested in taking on personal students. But they get rich 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 sometimes 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 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 pure masters of deception and distraction to non-discerning followers. These impostors come straight out of the astral realm and are there to milk you of your light.

If a guru is claiming to channel aliens, he will attract those who’d 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 which is taking place right here and right now.

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 a guru is evasive and fails to talk to you about God, 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 there.

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

***

If you followed a fake guru, it was not a waste of your time (or money)? A fake guru is always a lesson in discernment, among some other lessons. Many of us need this on our journey in order to take us to the next stage.

If you are able to look back at the situation, then it symbolizes your growth from that level of consciousness.

The problem only 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.

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 when you find 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 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.

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.  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 promiscuous 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 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 may significantly cut down on your intake of red meat and animal products.

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 clearer, your body becomes lighter, not to mention your appearance and health will 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!

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 load 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.
