Top 5 False Spiritual Teachings

Top 4 False Spiritual Teachings in Modern New Age Culture

Spirituality becoming popular among the masses and the wide availability of spiritual teachings from many traditions for all to explore seem like wonderful things. In many ways it is, as it allows people to explore their spiritual leanings and self-development through many different avenues and many different viewpoints. It is a beautiful thing that we can look at different cultures, different opinions, and different spiritual teachers’ experiences side-by-side and make our own decisions about the teachings that are available to us in a sovereign and empowered way.

Unfortunately, it also leaves openings for many misinterpretations of traditional spiritual teachings which can actually do more harm than good in many cases. Couple these misunderstandings with social media, and in no time you have viral toxic spiritual falsehoods that spread like wildfire across the internet. These misunderstandings or distortions of spiritual truths can do a lot of harm, as they can cause people to blame themselves for not being able to achieve what they are told they should be able to achieve. False spiritual teachings can contribute to mental illness, depression, hopelessness, and can lead to a spiritual awakening coming to a screeching halt.

Aligning with your highest good

What Does the Intention “For the Highest Good” Really Mean?

Any time I do healing and energy work for myself or others, I always intend for the outcome to be for the highest good of myself (or the individual I’m working with) and all of creation. What this means is that I intend for the energy I put forth to serve not only my growth and well-being, but also the growth and well-being of everything that exists. This method of intention-setting acknowledges that our success, abundance, healing, joy, enlightenment, and other benefits we gain from energy work or actions of any kind are only truly in alignment with the light and soul growth if that growth benefits all of creation as well.

This simple intention does many things. First, it allows only beings that are in service of this intention (unconditionally loving beings of the middle path) to connect with us. This is a very effective protection against infiltration from beings who might “help” us get what we want (or think we want) in exchange for something that benefits them. These types of beings are not of the middle path and ultimately are service-to-self in that they “help” or “give” to get what they want or need. In the process, you may get what you think you want, but it comes at a price of taking from others, entering into detrimental or parasitic contracts, or even doing harm to yourself or others.

law of attraction secrets

What Spiritual Teachers Aren’t Telling You About the Law of Attraction

The law of attraction has been a hot topic for quite some time. Spiritual teachers reference this fundamental law of the universe when teaching ways to attract abundance and live your best life. The basic premise of the law of attraction is that like attracts like. Energies that we hold in our field serve as magnets to draw in energies from “out there” and as a result we attract into our physical lives what we hold within us.

Many spiritual teachers talk about changing your attitude and your actions to align with what you want to attract in your life, but this is an extremely limited perspective on how the law of attraction actually works. It’s not as simple as slapping a smile on your face and getting a house with a two car garage hoping the second garage bay will be filled some day. This is why so many people feel as if they have failed and become very discouraged when following this advice. We all want a simple formula for living our best lives, and there is nothing wrong with that, but when it comes down to it, there are a lot more factors at play with the law of attraction than just attitude and intention.

The law of attraction is non-discriminatory. It is not selective with the energies in you that are used to magnetize the experiences, relationships, and circumstances that you have, and we have a lot of different energies that we emit and hold within us. Our thoughts and actions are only part of the picture.

what is the middle path

What is the Middle Path?

I frequently refer to the benevolent beings or guides that I work with as “beings of the middle path,” and am often questioned as to what the middle path actually is and why this is a terminology I use. Many say that the middle path or the middle way is a term specific to Buddhism referring to the balance between over-indulgence and extreme deprivation. While I do not specifically practice Buddhism myself, and am certainly no expert on the practices of Buddhism, I find that the concepts behind the teachings of the middle path generally align with what others’ refer to as Christ Consciousness. There are many different names in many different traditions for the same or similar truths. The middle path, as a term, resonates most closely with my truth and this is why I use it.

Taking the term outside of any religious context, though, the middle path is a specific energetic alignment. Firstly, it is not exclusive to over-indulgence and self-deprivation, as it encompasses far more than these two specific extremes. My understanding of the middle path encompasses polarity and duality in general and is not specific to any two opposites. It is the middle path of any and all extremes or opposing forces.

does kale raise your vibration

Have You Eaten Your Kale Today?

What are the fastest, easiest, and best ways to raise your vibration? This is one of the hottest topics of discussion among spiritual seekers today. There seem to be a wide variety of opinions, many of which center around diet, exercise, lifestyle, and spiritual practices. While eating your leafy greens can improve your overall health, make the body stronger and run more efficiently, and ultimately raise your vibration, there are a few caveats to these commonly suggested tools for raising your vibe higher.

When we first enter our spiritual awakening process, we often rapidly become aware of the habits of our past that are not supporting our growth. Changing diet, drinking more water, reducing the chemicals we consume, starting a meditation practice, and doing yoga are all great ways to raise your vibration during the initial phases of awakening, and there is nothing wrong with these practices. The problem, though, is that we become accustomed to being able to make relatively small external behavioral or routine changes in our lives, and see quick results in our overall vibration during this phase of our journey. This looks like our mood improving, having synchronicities day in and day out, downloading all sorts of information, opening the third eye and the intuition, and many other positive effects that come with spiritual growth.
