3 Myths About Spirituality That Prevent Us From Enjoying Life

Published

on

When it comes to spirituality, we’re all on our own journeys, whether you’re interested in the subject or not! However, what many of us forget is that “being spiritual” isn’t a full-time job or a lifestyle, it’s just us. We all have souls within us, are made up of consciousness, and are fundamentally connected to everyone and everything. Spirituality isn’t a choice, it’s inherent and is what makes up the very core of our being.

Nevertheless, spirituality can still be something you’re interested in and choose to research. There’s so much information available it can be difficult to decipher what the truth is, or what your truth is. Whether you’re interested in a specific religion or New Age concepts, many people convince themselves that they have to change in order to become more spiritual.

Though transformation and growth are wonderful, you don’t necessarily need to radically change your life in order to connect with the Divine, the universe, your Higher Self, or whatever you choose to call it. There’s no “one path toward enlightenment” or set of rules you need to follow in order to “become spiritual”; you’re already a spiritual being, you’re just in the process of remembering that!

Yes, of course there are practices that may help you along your spiritual journey; however, we all express and experience our spirituality differently. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the study of spirituality (at least I know this has happened to me) that we convince ourselves we need to buy certain things and practice specific rituals in order to further progress our spirituality.

Here are three myths about spirituality that may be preventing you from living your life.

1. Spirituality Is a Belief System

To many people, especially those who choose to follow a religion, spirituality becomes an overarching belief system that completely governs their decisions and lifestyles. People typically accept this belief system as a result of social conditioning from friends and family who also share that religion. Even when people switch religions, it’s typically because they’ve accepted a new ideology that then becomes their beliefs.

Spirituality is so much more than simply blindly believing old books and testaments; it’s about getting to know yourself as a soul and as a human being. It’s about understanding how to further connect with yourself and the true essence of your divinity. You don’t need to believe it; you can feel it.

Even when you look at prominent religious figures, this remains true. Jesus Christ encouraged others to look within and access the same “powers” he was able to manifest. Monks and gurus suggest meditation, yoga, self reflection, and gazing inwards. You don’t need to abide by a set of rules and adopt extremely specific beliefs in order to be spiritual.

In addition, many people look up to monks, enlightened beings, and other prominent “higher ups” in various religious communities, seeking answers through them rather than through the Self. People may also search for meaning in religious texts rather than through life and our inner selves, which is ultimately what we’re here to do.

It’s not just religion that creates constricting beliefs, it’s the New Age spirituality movement as well. Within the New Age community, many people who feel that they’re on the path toward enlightenment may use spirituality to create division between themselves and those they feel are “less spiritual” than them. This type of belief system only creates division amongst us, further perpetuating the illusion of separatism.

You don’t need to hide your emotions and become detached and aloof, nor do you need to spend all of your money on crystals and a yoga membership. Don’t get me wrong — I am a crystal lover and devoted yogi myself, but I’m just emphasizing that you don’t need to adopt every belief and practice in order to get more in touch with your spirituality.

2. Spirituality Is a Full-Time Job or a “Chore”

There are tons of different practices that we preach to help you become more in touch with your Higher Self: use crystals, meditate, yoga, breath work, journal, see channellers and energetic healers, seek enlightenment, practice detachment, and so much more. Though I see value in all of these for myself and my spiritual journey, that doesn’t mean that all of these modalities are meant to be practiced by all.

Spirituality is an individual journey that ultimately will not be expressed by all equally and in the same fashion. Some people will seek enlightenment, others will channel and communicate with their Higher Selves, and others may not even understand anything that I’m talking about in this article; but, none of this makes us more or less “spiritual” than one another.

Sometimes, the best way to practice our spirituality is to simply be with ourselves. You don’t need to spend piles of money on astrology readings and reiki; you can simply silence your mind and be you in the present moment. Ultimately, if your long list of spiritual practices is stressing you out, then perhaps just living your Dharma and surrendering is the best decision.

If spirituality starts to feel like a chore to you and you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed with all of your “spiritual tasks” you’re forcing yourself to do, take a break! Ultimately, you can never take a break from spirituality because we are all spiritual beings, and you can always find ways to practice and express your spirituality in other ways.

For example, I used to get genuinely upset with myself if I didn’t have enough time to meditate. Then, I discovered that I could reach the same level of consciousness or contentment when driving, cooking, or doing other tasks. Meditation doesn’t need to be done in complete silence or in the dark; it can be practiced anywhere and any time! I abandoned my strict regimen of meditation and started to incorporate it in other ways, because that’s what was serving me best at the time.

Keep in mind that if meditation starts to feel like a chore, that could mean you shouldn’t put so much pressure on yourself, but that could also suggest that you really do need these spiritual practices in your life. Sometimes the things we dread or dislike the most are the things our souls are really encouraging us to look at. The fact of the matter is that you are the only person who can truly understand what your soul resonates with and what’s best for you.

Being Spiritual Means Being Happy 24/7

Another common belief within the New Age community and those interested in spirituality is that in order to be spiritual, we need to be happy 100% of the time. We’re often encouraged to only seek the light, abandon the dark, and suppress our emotions.

The reality of life is that we live in a dualistic world and we were incarnated as humans who (for the most part) are tackling a wide range of emotions. These emotions clearly exist for a reason. Why would anger and sadness exist if they didn’t serve some sort of higher purpose?

Sometimes people confuse practicing detachment with suppressing emotions and acting like robots. True detachment involves working through your emotions fully so you can completely let them go, which often means you will have to face darkness head on.

Plus, when you begin to raise your vibration and experience greater levels of empathy and connection, you may find that you’re more susceptible to other people’s energies. At the same time, you’re improving your ability to understand your own emotions and how to process them correctly rather than suppressing them, so that could actually be a very difficult process in and of itself! Though this process is extremely beneficial for our souls and is often necessary to endure along our spiritual journeys, that doesn’t mean it’s going to be enjoyable.

Self-realization can be a painful process, and that’s perfectly okay. However, if you’ve been interested in spirituality for a while and this doesn’t necessarily resonate with you, that’s cool too! Some people have a lot of darkness to face, others don’t. What’s important is that we all respect and support each other on our journeys and recognize that not everyone’s paths will look the same.

To be clear, this article is not meant to put down any religion or spiritual practice! I believe that everything in creation has a purpose and that everything serves us. I truly recognize the value in religion and I attribute Hinduism and Buddhism for inspiring me to get more in touch with my own spiritual nature, and I definitely engage in many of the aforementioned practices.

My hope is that this article serves as a reminder that you are on your own spiritual journey. You are always going down the correct path because it’s yours; your soul chose it for you and you are living it. Don’t beat yourself up for what you have or haven’t done, and learn to live in the present moment; perhaps then you’ll find that you’re becoming more aligned with your Higher Self.

Summer Solstice 2018: The Spiritual Significance & How You Can Reflect In Your Life

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Today, June 21st 2018 is the summer solstice. It is a time where we welcome the season of Summer and can begin reflecting on various things.

  • Reflect On:

    This is the ideal time to consider ways we can balance the masculine and feminine forces in our lives. Where could you use a little more gentle, receptive yin? Where could you yang it up and put in more action-oriented, decisive energy?

The summer solstice is here! This is certainly a day worth celebrating and not just because it represents the longest day of the year for everyone living North of the equator, hello sun — but also because of the symbolic meaning behind it. The summer solstice has been an important day throughout history and for good reason.

The summer solstice marks a time for the celebration of Mother Nature, fun and of course the sun. The sun brings us warmth and light and I’m sure that is something that we can all appreciate.

Solstice At Stonehenge

Stonehenge has been a popular spot throughout recorded time to celebrate this day because it was built to directly align with the solstices, but only during the summer solstice specifically does the rising sun reach the middle of the stones and shine on the central altar. Clearly, whoever or whatever built Stonehenge had this in mind, and it must have been of great significance in order to take on the process of constructing one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.

According to BBC’s coverage of a solstice event several years ago, the event included an interview with those who appreciate solstice the most,

“We believe it is very important for people to move with the cycles of nature, and actually feel them. If you get up early in the morning and you watch that special sunrise, you’ve been a part of it. The rest of the year is shaped by that. And we think it’s a really healthy thing to do and a very spiritual thing to do.”

What Is So Significant Of The Summer Solstice?

Melanie Beckler, the author of Angel Messages, said the Summer Solstice is a time of “energetic opening” and “celestial potential” pouring out from the sun.

She explained: “Symbolically the Summer Solstice represented enlightenment, awakening and the triumph of lightness over darkness.

Aside from the celebration of the sun, it marks the first day of summer, and really, who doesn’t love summer? Many believe that the summer solstice is all about taking a chance to express gratitude for the gifts of harvest, bounty, and abundance.

Pagans hold a religious ritual on the solstice to honor and acknowledge the turning of the wheel of the year and the new season that is upon us.

While to some it may feel fairly insignificant, we are inhabitants on this earth and just as the earth does, we also go through changes. We are in tune, whether aware or not of what happens on the planet and it affects us, too.

According to the astrotwins, The season of Cancer will last 30 days and is a good time to “balance masculine and feminine energies”.

“This is the ideal time to consider ways we can balance the masculine and feminine forces in our lives.

“Where could you use a little more gentle, receptive yin? Where could you yang it up and put in more action-oriented, decisive energy?

“We all contain both energies within us, and in an age where gender is becoming more fluid and redefined than ever, the solstice is an awesome moment to widen our notions of what that means for us.”

How To Harness The Magic Of This Years Summer Solstice

There are so many ways that you can integrate the powerful energy from the solstice into your life. Most importantly, take some time for you and reflect. This could mean setting aside one hour and journaling about some of the various topics seen above in this article.

If you have some crystals, this can be a great time to put them out in the sun to charge and energize them.

Have a solstice party, in whatever capacity this looks like for you. If you aren’t very into the “spiritual” or “fluffy” stuff, simply having a gathering with friends is a great way to welcome this transition. If you are more inclined to the ritualistic types of activities, you can gather with your friends have a fire maybe, go to the beach, share your intentions for the year.

Even if your day is busy, don’t forget, this is the longest day of the year, take some time for some quiet reflection and some time in the sun. Reflect on the past season, let go of what is no longer serving you from the spring and call in whatever you’d like to manifest for the upcoming season. The sun provides powerful energy for all inhabitants of the earth and our entire solar system, might as well utilize it during its peak day.

Manifest that summer love, enjoy community, and welcome all of the new growth, evolution, and change.

Oh, happy day.

Much Love

Who Lucifer Actually Is & Why They Are Here (Part 2: Bloodline Families)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The 'Fall of Lucifer' can be understood as the fulfillment of an agreement to bring evil to the Earth in order to create duality and hence the possibility of free will. Lucifer is a group soul that individuated through 13 sacred bloodlines.

  • Reflect On:

    How would our relationships change if we believed that all the evil in our world was actually here to enable us to have free will? How would it impact our personal evolution?

(Note: If you have not read part 1 of this article, my strong recommendation is to follow the link and read it first, because it provides an essential context for the discussion here.)

As we described in Part 1, Lucifer is considered to be a highly evolved ‘group soul’, having reached 6th density, while our world is currently in 3rd density transitioning to 4th density. The concept of ‘group soul’ is important here, as it suggests that, as individual souls evolve towards reunion with the One Creator, they gather into ever larger sub-groups of consciousness from which they came.

In this context, the ‘Fall of Lucifer’ is actually based on an agreement between Lucifer and the Earth’s planetary logos (creator) known as Yahweh, an agreement designed to introduce ‘evil’ to the planet in order to foster human free will and subsequently accelerate human evolution.

Fallen Angel

In the Bible there is reference made to the fall of Lucifer, characterized as God’s punishment for a self-centered angel who aspired to be above the one almighty God:

“How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;” –Isaiah, 14:12-13

What this in fact represents is the result of Yahweh’s anger at his human population having disobeyed him by succumbing to Lucifer’s temptation in the garden. Yahweh had only reluctantly accepted the proposition that his human subjects be granted free will, and actually went ahead with it believing they would not disobey him.

If you are wondering ‘How could God the Creator be angry?’ it helps to understand that Yahweh is not the One Creator but rather simply the creator of the planet Earth, and as a planetary logos had not evolved beyond anger, jealousy, and revenge. While being fully aware and very powerful, Yahweh’s soul had not grown much since the creation of the planet. It is, in fact, the evolution of the human race that is the vehicle for Yahweh’s own evolution into higher densities.

Lucifer Confined To Astral Planes

And so Yahweh took out his wrath, not only on his human population–which is well documented in the Old Testament–but on Lucifer as well. He confined the group soul to the Earth’s Astral Planes. Lucifer’s ‘fall from grace’ is actually a consequence of Yahweh’s jealousy, because Lucifer, as a 6th density group soul, had become a more highly evolved being than Yahweh was. Here is how Hidden-Hand explains the blowback from Yahweh’s actions:

Now that Free Will had been granted, Yahweh could not retract it, and we have to stay here as contracted to continue to provide the planet with the Polarity choice. Since then, Yahweh has confined us (as a Group Soul) here within the Earth’s Astral Planes (which is very constricting and uncomfortable for a Being of our Wisdom and experience).

The Council of Elders gave us the choice to be released (against Yahweh’s will), but at the cancellation of our contract to Serve the planet earth; or to remain and fulfill our assignment, and endure Yahweh’s self-proclaimed “Wrath”. We stayed, but as a karmic result of our Group Soul’s confinement by Yahweh, our own individuated Souls were given the mandate (by The Council) to “Rule” over Yahweh’s people during our physical incarnations here on your planet.

The fact that the soul group’s individuated souls ‘were given the mandate (by The Council) to “Rule” over Yahweh’s people’ is of paramount importance. It gives us a much greater and more profound understanding of the nature of the presence of evil on this planet. The oft-heard references to a nefarious ‘Cabal’ or ‘Illuminati’ group running the planet, no matter how accurate or inaccurate as those words may be, appears to be validated in this big-picture view.

The 13 Bloodlines

In effect, due to the karma that Yahweh created by his petty acts of jealousy and rage, the group soul named Lucifer would not simply be stoking the fires of evil on the planet from afar, but the individuated souls of that group soul would incarnate on the planet via 13 sacred bloodlines to actually rule the planet from a much higher level of consciousness and self-awareness that humans would have.

The original ‘incarnation’ seems to correspond to the Nephilim or ‘Fallen Angels,’ whose integration into the human race is described in Genesis 6:4:

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them.

This may be where the 13 bloodlines got started. What is important to note is that, while the human race lived on the Earth with a healthy dose of ‘amnesia’ of who they were for the purposes of their own evolution, it does not seem as though the individuated souls of Lucifer were in the same boat. They consciously understood their role on Earth, and have had a structure in place to maintain cohesion in their role as rulers through their understanding that they are part of the ‘Family,’ an understanding that is passed down by every generation. Hidden-Hand, in fact, identifies himself as a ‘generational member’:

I am a generational member of a Ruling Bloodline Family, our Lineage can be traced back beyond antiquity. From the earliest times of your recorded “history”, and beyond, our Family has been ‘directing’ the ‘play’ from behind the scenes, in one way or another.

There are 13 ‘base’ or ‘core’ original bloodlines. Yet there are many many other lines that spring from these, as do rivers from the oceans. If you imagine the 13 Original lines as Primary colour, that can be mixed to create a vast array of other colours, then you will have some comprehension. Again, no competition, just Family.

Disciplines Of Training Within The Family

The Family, then, appears to be essentially the group soul of Lucifer, whose core members unify around their sole and original purpose, to provide the catalyst for human growth through playing the role of controlling rulers of the planet. They do so, according to Hidden-Hand, through a very comprehensive program of training of family members in key areas of human influence:

There are six disciplines of training within the Family, and each member of the Family is schooled extensively in all of them, from early childhood. We all have an area of specialty, though we have experience in all spheres. The six spheres or ‘schools’ of learning are Military, Government, Spiritual, Scholarship, Leadership, and Sciences. In practice, out there on the ‘stage’ of public life, we hold key positions in all of these main areas of importance. With the addition of a complicit Media machine and ownership of your Financial establishments, all bases are covered.

Hidden Hand Of Influence

These positions of power are not what we first think of–politicians, generals, corporate heads, even the visible monarchy. In reference to a question about the British Royalty, Hidden-Hand says the following:

The British Royalty is not the most powerful line. The names that you know, do not hold the real ancient power. There are others above these lineages in the Hierarchy. You will not know the names of these lines.

So the individuated souls of Lucifer do indeed play the role of a hidden hand, and hold the true power behind those people and institutions who seem to exert the most authority in the world. Are these powerful Luciferian souls actually perpetrating evil in the world themselves, or are they just inciting evil within human beings? We will examine this question in part 3.

Why ‘Conspiracy Theories’ & Spirituality Are Intimately Connected

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Refusing to understand how our world truly functions and simply calling exploration into this as 'negative' is a common spiritual bypass. The elite/cabal is here for a reason, we must understand that.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we find ourselves calling conspiracies negative or something we should not talk about? Why do we refuse to face some of the 'darker' things inside, or even outside, of ourselves?

Is it considered ‘not spiritual’ to talk about an elite or cabal running our world? This has become a commonplace today, and there is a great deal of ridicule that comes when people feel looking at the truth of what is playing out in our world is ‘crazy’ or a ‘negative’ thing to do. In fact, the ‘negative’ label on conspiracy theories we place is one of the biggest spiritual bypasses we can do. Let’s dive into this.

The truth is, understanding the way our world truly functions and consciousness evolution (spirituality) go hand in hand. Why? Because it is all part of life here. It is not separate! You don’t have spirituality on one side and conspiracies or truth on the other. It’s all interconnected in our life and human experience. And it’s time to bring them together.

Note: I did an amazing CE Podcast episode on this subject you can listen to here. It goes even deeper into the subject than this article.

The Challenge

This isn’t true 100% of the time of course, but in a lot of cases, we see those in the truth-seeking realm feel consciousness or spirituality is airy fairy and has no place in the big picture and is just a new age distraction. On the flip side, we see those engaged in spirituality-seeking feel conspiracy/truth-seeking people are crazy and negative. While there is truth to some extent in both cases, there is a lot more to the discussion and a very important purpose for both.

You’ve probably experienced it at some point, it’s believable that GMO’s are unhealthy and corporations are using them to make money in a number of ways but it’s damaging to people and the environment, but yet there is no possible way that’s happening with vaccines… or that 9/11 was an inside job. Let me be the first to say, there are a number of conspiracy theories that have no backing, no facts, are far-reaching and in many cases don’t even help us along our journey. But this is not the case with many, in fact, the amount of evidence is often staggering and it’s simply that we don’t want to believe it.

I’m writing this because I’m calling for an end of the reduction of conversation to ‘that’s crazy’ ‘that’s fake news’ ‘that’s a conspiracy’ etc. as it does nothing but maintain division, a lack of awareness and a misinformed world that can’t thrive. Time and time again what is often called ‘conspiracy’ turns out to be true only a few months or a year later. We can end this cycle by learning and choosing to listen instead of dismissing, then checking in with our hearts/souls about what role this is playing in our experience so we can dissolve the need for the cabal.

Why They Go Hand In Hand

Some of us view spirituality as learning techniques to feel good, as ways to cope with life and the challenges we have in our modern world. Some view it as a means to begin to feel better about the prospect of death. Others view it as a way to explore what’s beyond the physical and who we truly are.

From a conspiratorial side, when we’re talking about digging past mainstream media to find out what’s really going on in our world, some view it as a way to disempower the elite that does not have humanities best interests at heart. Others view it as a way to take back our power. Some see it as a way to uncover the truth of how our world truly works so we can begin to thrive. Some react to these truths with wanting revenge or justice, this is an important thing to note as this is where the spirituality comes in.

So it appears we have ‘two sides’ as we often like to do within ego states of consciousness. But what role does the elite and cabal play in our experience? How has that served to suppress our spirituality and why has it all happened? The two are intimately connected because part of the game we are playing on earth here is that we have to uncover what has been happening in our reality and remember who we truly are. This is a spiritual journey, that involves understanding the players in the game and the roles they play.

I’ve been running a conscious media and education company for 9.5 years now. Our mission is to bridge the gap between truth-seeking and spirituality via exploring a shift in consciousness taking place on our planet. We understand that both are part of one big picture in life and you can only go so far in each before you MUST bring in the other to deepen your understanding.

During the 9.5 years since I started Collective Evolution, I have seen thousands of people go through various stages of discovering and learning, both in truth-seeking and spirituality, that has sent them on different paths. Some begin to discover our food system is rigged for a lack of health and they begin eating cleaner. This leads them to understand our entire world is ‘rigged against us’ and suddenly there is a shift in how they see the world. I have seen others attend a yoga class and this begins a journey into connecting with self deeply.

But in both cases, I often see an identity form. The yogi becomes identified as a ‘spiritual person,’ dresses a certain way, talks a certain way and may refuse to look at anything the ‘truth-seekers’ are saying because they don’t want to fall into that crowd. The truth-seekers are often angry, pissed off at the world, call everyone else sheeple and think the elite need to die in prisons. They might look at the ‘yogi’ or ‘spiritual’ crowd as having fallen into pseudo-scientific new age deception because they look at consciousness and spirituality.

Then there are those who have journeyed beyond that stage and are simply authentic and understand how both ingredients, truth-seeking and spirituality, are one in the same and part of the journey. They are both a part of this game we call life and if we truly want to evolve, move forward, remove the cabal and so forth, we must see the truth and learn why it was there in the first place for our own evolution in consciousness.

The video below explores the role the elite/cabal play in our spiritual journey.

It’s A Role!

Remember, what the cabal and elite are doing isn’t negative in the big picture scheme of things. To our mind it might be, but not to our souls. This is why you must connect deeply with self to overcome the vengeful hateful view the mind creates when we observe them.

What they are doing simply is. And for our souls, it is the journey we asked for to challenge ourselves to remember who we truly are in a very disconnected system. The cabal, are just souls having an experience too, and we all agreed on this together. This doesn’t mean we accept what they are doing in the physical and just take it, no, it simply means we must evolve our consciousness and overcome the need for them for it to stop.

How does that look or happen? We must understand why it’s there by going beyond the judgement and the emotion and see what the trap it creates for us. With that understanding, we no longer can get trapped in the angry, hateful emotions that hold this world in place and instead we choose, from a consciousness point of view, to create a different world. This not only affects collective consciousness and helps others awaken, but we then now can create a new world, both physically and consciously, that comes from a higher state of consciousness and not one that is built in fear, anger and judgement of the old one. Remaining in that old state will only create more of the same world.

Again, I feel it is very important to listen to the podcast episode on this one as it goes into deep detail about this.

Final Thoughts

If you find yourself viewing matters in either of these polarized lights, challenge yourself to ask why? Why have this opposition to either side and why are we coloring things as positive or negative in the first place? What is that showing us about ourselves? Our fear of looking at our own ‘darkness?’ Collective ‘darkness?’ In many ways, what the elite/cabal are doing is just a reflection of our own journeys on a macro scale. It’s reflecting humanity’s current state of consciousness as we awaken to the truth. Change Starts Within.
