Connection is one of the most beautiful parts of existence. Everything in this world is connected, a grid of divine energy flowing through everything in existence. A spiritual pulse, circulating energy throughout existence, bringing forward sickness, and health. Love and hate. Dark and light.
When we ignore this connectivity and begin existing in a selfish mindset, we lower our vibrations. We create a spiritual sickness in which consumes us. We begin putting the blame on this sickness on others. Refusing to take ownership for our experiences and for our choices.
We begin placing our power in the hands of our oppressors. We succumb to the external gratifications that which bind us, living in a false bliss fueled by lies, illusion, and lust.
We place our power in external objects, in external idols such as celebrities, sports, deities, and people. It is this basic action of placing our power in an external thing where true oppression begins. When we believe that our happiness is contingent on an external factor, we will never find happiness in our lives.
Over the past few years, I’ve seen so many souls succumb to their shadows. A darkness that resides within each and every one of us which justifies lust, encourages envy, stokes the flames of wrath and places our pride on a pedestal. A darkness that exists because of greed, pushing us to over consume and obsess over materialistic desires and possessions. Growing until our possessions possess us, binding us in a cycle of sickness. Eventually crushing our desires, pushing our natural gifts down deep beneath the surface, the shadow within us extinguishes the spark, ultimately removing us farther from the divine energy that flows through all of creation.
When the divine energy stops flowing our faith is truly tested. An untested faith is worthless, as it’s value is never seen. But a faith that is tested, and found to be pure and strong can achieve great things, and carries a value of such great level, it is immeasurable.
As the pulse of divine energy grows weaker, we begin to see our mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness begin to diminish. We begin to experience depression and anxiety, physical health problems such as endometriosis, fibromyalgia and arthritis as well as emotional instability and the loss of our faith!
In this period of vulnerability we succumb to each and every desire that enters into our minds. We hand the reins over to our shadows, allowing them to completely call the shots without any kind of accountability or ownership of these actions.
We alone are responsible for the turmoil we are in. We alone can change the reality that surrounds us. Not by wishing it away, or manifesting in our journals and with our candles and prayers a different reality. But rather by healing our imbalances. By quitting the bull shit.
By looking within ourselves and addressing the issues that we see presenting in our wellness. I have come to learn some hard lessons on this path, one of the hardest lessons for me to learn appears to be so simple, yet has been incredibly difficult for me to accept. The only people I can truly help, are those who are willing to change their lifestyle and take true ownership for their behaviors.
It doesn’t matter how much work I do, how many articles I write, or courses I create. If you don’t want to change, then you won’t.
