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.

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 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.
