Ever meet someone who seems to want to take over your spiritual well-being? How about someone who has dire proclamations from your guides/your goddesses/your ancestors? They might tell you you’re going to *die* if you don’t follow this advice exactly or maybe your soul is in peril. They probably tell you that they have your best interests at heart and that they care so much about you.
Nah. They’re a spiritual bully.
While this term tends to be used most often for organized religious bullying – see religious cults – what I’m talking about tends to happen a lot with psychics or other sensitives.
I had a friend once who was having a rough time in her life and went to a psychic. She invited me once and I wasn’t impressed. (Later she told me her psychic was scared of me because I was an “old soul.” Pretty sure what she saw was my bullshit detector going off.) But my friend had been going for several sessions – even when she couldn’t afford it – because her psychic told her, and I quote, “she had a curse on her that only the psychic could remove.” ….for a fee, of course. I never knew how much my friend paid her psychic in the end, but I’m sure it was quite a bit.
That’s all bullshit. It’s a way to pry cash out of your wallet and to put you in a fear-based mindset.
There are two main settings from which you can view life – this is oversimplified, but sometimes we complicate things too much. You can approach life, the universe, and everything from a fear-based position or from a love-based position. People who want to manipulate and abuse you don’t really want you sitting in a love-based mindset. Fear-based is much more useful to them because you’re more likely to do what they want you to do, whatever that happens to be.
So when someone shows up in your inbox or somewhere else with messages from your guides/your goddesses/your ancestors, assess what they’re telling you. Is your soul in danger? Is the message only one that’s dire? Are you going to literally *die* if you don’t follow this advice, right now, exactly like this? Because here’s the thing: These are YOUR guides, goddesses, and ancestors.
This attitude comes from manipulation and control, NOT from making sure that you’re getting what you need. This messenger? This bully? Does not care about you at all.
Your guides/goddesses/ancestors have a lot of ways to get messages to you. I’m not saying that there won’t sometimes be intermediaries, but if the intermediaries you’re encountering are unnecessarily dire and are pushing you, literally or figuratively, to do what they want you to do, they’re a bully.
True messages for you will get to you. The Universe is not new to dealing with humans. We need a clue-by-four over the head to get stuff. You’ll get your message, but you don’t need the bullying.
Like this and wanna buy me a coffee? You can do that and hey, thanks, friend! We writers run on coffee. 🙂
