31 Examples of Your Spiritual Progress

Share Button

Sometimes the most spiritually aware and evolved individuals question whether or not they are good people, which is a sign of humility. Alternatively, some of the most difficult troublemakers on the planet assume they are advanced souls.

Many humans strive to treat others as they want to be treated. Others are too focused on themselves or don’t comprehend the spiritual importance of it.

You probably accept basic spiritual tenets, such as karma and fate, if you regularly read our articles. Thus, you likely value spiritual awareness and doing the right thing, and may have made more spiritual progress than you realize.

Below are 31 examples of your spiritual progress of which you should be proud.

You are gentle and understanding with yourself and others because you know Earth can be an extremely challenging place of learning.

You are humble and try not to let praise go to your head.

You love yourself unconditionally first instead of projecting all your love onto a romantic partner, especially someone who doesn’t respect you and, or isn’t in love with you.

You avoid attempting to control people in order to meet your needs or desires.

You give your partner the freedom to be true to himself or herself.

You love a friend enough to gently tell him what he needs to hear, even if the truth stings.

You let the little things slide and focus on what really matters.

You don’t pursue friendships or relationships for the wrong reasons.

You put your child’s needs ahead of your needs or desires.

You refrain from judging something or someone before you know the facts.

You respectfully stand up for your rights.

You question everything rather than accepting anything blindly, even when the source is a doctor, religious leader, scientist, or other widely respected figure in society.

You trust your intuition instead of only believing in what you can see, hear, touch, or prove.

You keep intuitive insight about someone’s personal life to yourself when there’s no good reason to share it; with awareness comes responsibility.

You try to be civil to people who aren’t.

You’ve done something nice for someone because you knew they were having a bad day.

You do the right thing even when no one is looking.

You judge people based on the content of their character rather than their color, sexual orientation, sex life, gender, appearance, status, or material possessions.

You’ve helped or mentored someone who needed it, with no expectations of anything in return.

You consider and care how your actions affect other people, and you take responsibility for your actions.

You look for the truth and scrutinize your own actions before you blame someone else.

You’ve stood up for the truth and defended someone you knew was innocent.

You’re honest with yourself and others as much as possible.

You give credit where credit is due.

You say what you mean and mean what you say.

You respect yourself enough to guard against people using or corrupting you.

You try to see bad people as teachers rather than devils.

You try to focus on the lesson and bright side of difficult situations.

You accept what you can’t change and focus on what you can.

You strive to remain fair and reasonable rather than getting carried away with emotions.

You realize it’s normal to feel negative emotions, but make an effort to detach from them in order to avoid negative behavior, which can be the result of unchecked emotions

No one is perfect and most people don’t manage to always live up to every one of these ideals. After all, everyone is here to learn and grow. But as long as you make an effort, you will be making spiritual progress, creating good karma, and contributing to a better world.

Life After Death–A Tale of Two Different Viewpoints

Share Button

The life after death debate includes two main viewpoints. Either you believe in life after death (the afterworld, or heaven), or you believe that once you die your consciousness simply ceases to exist.

Below we outline the two general belief systems regarding the life after death debate symbolized by two different individuals.

1. The first person believes in the body and mind and nothing else.

He believes the concepts of heaven and hell are myths and the universe is chaotic and isn’t interconnected with humans.

Modern scientific tenets are the foundation of his beliefs; his schooling taught him that if it can’t be proven by today’s scientific method, it’s not valid.

After all, if metaphysical concepts were “valid,” they would be embraced by modern science, right? To believe in such mystical matters goes against everything he’s been taught and he certainly doesn’t want to be known as someone who has fringe beliefs.

His wife died over a decade ago when he was in his early forties and, understandably, it was one of the most difficult times of his life.

He appreciated his good friend suggesting he consider that maybe she’ll be waiting for him on the other side, but he won’t have anything to do with the idea of heaven or an afterlife. It’s unfortunate, because if there is an afterlife, and we believe there is, an understanding of it makes death easier to deal with.

2. The second person embraces the concepts of reincarnation, past lives, karma, fate, and the afterlife. He believes the soul is eternal and that it experiences a series of existences, with various levels of awareness and karmic debits and credits.

To those who believe humans are exclusively a body and brain, without a soul and spiritual connection to a higher power, he suggests they have a session with a talented medium.

It may sound heartless to suggest that everyone has their destined time of death, particularly when loved ones are suffering from the loss. But our findings show that those who cross over to the other side watch over you and you will see them again. They’re always around to help when you need them and they hear you when you speak to them.

Recently an acquaintance’s father died and not long after, while thinking of him, he appeared to come forward while we were in a meditative state. It seemed he thought since we acknowledged his presence on the other side and knew his son, we would be able to send a message to him.

It wasn’t clear what he was saying and it may have been simply to tell him he loves him and will see him again, but it presented a problem. We know the son isn’t receptive in the least to the concept of the afterworld, and if we told him his father made contact with us, our acquaintance likely wouldn’t appreciate it. Thus, we refrained from doing so.

Regardless, it was amusing when the deceased father said something like “you shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house” after we had a fleeting thought of past (innocuous) bad behavior on the part of the son. “Hey, we’re not judging, it was just one of several memories relating to your son, who is a good guy” we said to him with a smile.

Although the loss of loved ones is never easy, it’s comforting to embrace the hope of seeing them again. Understanding reincarnation, karma, and the other side also gives greater meaning to life and empowers you with a sense of interconnectedness with everyone and the universe.

Spiritual Advice You Should Ignore Part II

Share Button

Thanks to modern technology and the Internet, you’ll find an abundance of spiritual information online when you seek answers to your spiritual questions. Unfortunately, so much of it is spiritual advice you should ignore.

Throughout over 30 years of extensive metaphysical and spiritual exploration, we’ve never adhered to only one system, religion, or outlook. Instead, we use intuition, reason, common sense, and long-term observation to discover what works.

Below is some of the spiritual advice we’ve found that is best ignored since it’s unhelpful or even dangerous.

Vegan and vegetarian diets are the most spiritual. If this kind of diet works for you, great, but eating animals doesn’t incur negative karma. Also, every body is different, and some people cannot thrive on such a diet, especially over a long period.

Feng Shui will bring you everything you want. We’ve found that Feng Shui can be helpful if the focus is on directional Feng Shui and the structure of the home, not simply colors or lucky charms. Also, it won’t override your fate or enable you to create what isn’t already destined for you.

Your problems are the result of bad energy or a curse. Any psychic who makes this claim and says she can clear your aura for thousands of dollars probably doesn’t even know how to identify negative energy or clear it.

Demons (or dark energy) don’t exist unless you give them energy. We used to believe that, until we delved deeply into the topic, and learned the truth about spirit releasement, possession, and Spiritual Detox, and cleared our own energy fields of spiritual debris. Since then, we’ve learned to recognize the signs of possession and attachment and cleared many people and places.

Black magic is not bad, just another form of energy. Any form of black magic is tapping into dark energy and is usually about manipulation instead of wanting what’s best for everyone involved. Avoid it at all costs or you’ll be a slave to dark energy for a very long time. The saying “selling your soul” is exactly what happens when you exploit dark energy.

Use spells to create what you want. Be very careful with spells, especially old spells that can draw forth generations of fears and negative energy. Have only good intentions and never attempt to control someone or you’ll create negative karma for yourself.

Some psychics can bring a lover back. Anyone who says that is a charlatan and should be avoided. Even if they do have the ability to influence your lover, it will create negative karma for you and you can’t cheat fate if they’re not destined to return.

A soul has to wait a certain number of years before reincarnating. Every soul is different. Some may wait many years, and some jump back into a body as soon as possible, depending upon what they need and want to accomplish.

Each soul incarnates a certain number of times. There is no set number of incarnations. Some get it right in fewer incarnations but most choose to return over and over to work through their karma.

A soul only incarnates into a certain race, country, religion, or gender. Most souls choose to experience all of them.

You only live once. Your current personality may only live once, but your soul comes back again and again.

You are doomed if you don’t follow a particular religion or belief. You don’t need religion to do the right thing and treat others as you want to be treated.

Your Twin Soul is your perfect match who was created for you. Our findings completely invalidate this notion.

You only have one soul mate. Yet another romantic myth. You have many, and most are more for personal growth than romantic bliss.

You can manifest your soul mate. This is wishful thinking. If you are destined to meet a compatible soul mate, you can use your free will to reach that goal. If you are not destined to meet a good, lasting match at this time, you won’t.

Spiritual Advice You Should Ignore Part I

Share Button

There’s no shortage of spiritual information online. Seek answers, and you shall find helpful information. But you’ll also find plenty of spiritual advice you should ignore.

We started exploring metaphysical and spiritual subjects over thirty years ago. In our exhaustive searches and studies, we never followed only one religion, outlook, guru, or system. Instead, we like to try and test many options, then apply reason, intuition, and long-term observation to determine what works, and what doesn’t.

Below is a collection of the spiritual advice we’ve found isn’t helpful, or worse, even harmful.

Check your horoscope. Horoscopes and computer generated astrology reports are too general to be accurate.

Have your chart done. Unless the astrologer is very psychic and uses a basic chart as a touchstone for insight, one single chart, the basic natal modern astrology chart, is merely an introduction. Your comprehensive natal and timing patterns, comprised of hundreds of factors, tell the real story, mitigating or supporting any single notion found in the basic chart.

Numerology and astrology are only about possibilities, not predicting fate. We’ve found that ancient, comprehensive numerology and astrology can predict fate, if you go deep enough. The “only possibilities” mantra is based on trivialities and distortions of these ancient sciences.

You can change your destiny and nothing is set in stone. We’ve found that most significant events in your life, those you need to experience in order to learn, balance karma, or reap your rewards, are set up before your birth. Thus, many of your core life circumstances and events are set in stone.

Take drugs for a vision quest or spiritual trip. All drugs lower your resistance to and attract spiritual troublemakers and parasites. Use meditation, not drugs, to grow spiritually.

Past lives don’t matter. They don’t matter until you realize how much (a lot) the subconscious memories, emotions and karma from them are influencing your current life. You are a collection of your experiences from past lives, and your current life often mirrors your past lives.

You can erase your karma. It’s obvious to us, after 1000s of past life regressions, that everything you do and say will come back to you, even for people who don’t believe in past lives. Forgiveness and acceptance can ease karma, but you can’t overcome it without wading through your (karmic) experiences.

You need to be in a relationship to grow spiritually. Perhaps for certain lessons with certain people, but relationships can also keep you stuck. Learning to enjoy being alone at least some of the time can help you make strides in your spiritual and personal growth.

The Secret, a popular book published in 2006, can help you achieve any goal you want. Unfortunately, such New Age advice about the law of attraction leaves out very important parts of the puzzle: It’s only one law, and other spiritual laws, such as the laws of karma and fate, supersede the law of attraction. In other words, if it’s not your fate to be fabulously wealthy, famous, or a best-selling author, it’s not going to happen. The good news is that if it is your fate, you will be able to use your free will to make it happen. Even if it’s not, from a spiritual perspective, the experience of trying to reach a goal is more important than reaching it.

If you believe you can achieve. By all means, shoot for the stars. But it’s important to be realistic too. Otherwise, you’ll burn yourself out and not have enough energy to focus on meeting the goals that are part of your destiny.

What you desire is your “birthright.” Sometimes yes, other times no. Just because you want something doesn’t mean you’ve earned it through good karma.

A vow of poverty is pious and honorable. This implies that making money is a bad thing, which is false as long as you earn it honestly. If you want to be a martyr and add more struggle to your life, go ahead, but we don’t recommend it.

26 Things You Won’t Say or Do on the Other Side Part II

Share Button

Based on life-after-life accounts from past life regression, the research of Stafford Betty, and Near Death Experiences (NDEs), the afterworld is quite different than life on Earth. One main reason is that you, or your soul, is no longer confined by the limits of your body and mind.

The list in this article is about life after death in the Light, where most souls go after shedding their body. Some souls go to levels of a lower vibration, but they always have the choice to call out for help, embrace the Light and work to progress to higher levels.

Below are 11 things you won’t say or do on the other side.

Be racist or accuse others of race privilege

You’ll be able to clearly perceive all your other lifetimes you’ve lived as all or most races. Because of this, souls understand race is a temporary facade, so racism doesn’t exist on the other side. Souls can also see that those screaming the loudest on Earth about privilege likely abused it in past lives.

Be sexist or accuse others of gender privilege

All souls can see that they’ve experienced lives as both male and female in order to learn and grow, so gender privilege is a non-issue.

Feel guilty or envious about finances or status

Instead, you’ll perceive all your previous lifetimes spanning back thousands of years as rich, poor, and in-between, and realize the karmic reasons and lessons for each.

Feel cheated about family, friendships, love life, or health

You’ll understand that everyone earned it, or needed to experience it for growth and that they chose it, on a soul level.

Feel guilty for not strictly adhering to religious doctrine

There is no required religion, thus no one will give you any rules about how often or whom you are supposed to worship.

Be an atheist

On the lower planes souls can choose to deny a higher power. But once they go into the Light, they realize there is no religion, yet it’s also impossible to ignore the energy of God or a higher power. They also realize that it’s okay to be an atheist while incarnated; it won’t disqualify you from entering the other side after death.

“I’m too old”

While souls have varying degrees of wisdom and numbers of lifetimes, there are no physical body constraints. Many souls appear as they did on Earth in their last lifetime, but at their most vibrant and in their physical prime (many who’ve had near death experiences say souls look about 30 years old).

Forget your loved ones who are still incarnated on Earth

Many on the other side help their incarnated loved ones by sending them love and inspiration.

Be lazy

After souls rest and recuperate, particularly after a rough incarnation, they have more than enough energy to reflect on past life mistakes, learn, and plan for their next incarnation or the next level of their growth.

Assume that in order to be metaphysically aware, you must wear a robe, meditate all day, and live in a remote mountainous region

Instead, you’ll look back on all the people in your previous incarnation and you might be shocked about the soul level of some of them beneath the surface. Some of the most seemingly mundane individuals are sometimes the most spiritually advanced souls.

Make metaphysical concepts seem much more complex than they really are to sell more books (hi Deepak!)

Spiritual truths are simple on the other side.

26 Things You Won’t Say or Do on the Other Side Part I

Share Button

Based on our experience with past life regression, life-between-life regression, documented near death experiences, and the after life research of Stafford Betty, we believe there is nothing to fear about death.

When you shed your physical body, your soul moves on to a different dimension. Once there, since you’ll no longer be confined by the limits of your physical body, mind, biases, excuses, fears, and earthly programming, your perception of yourself and your actions in all your past lives will be crystal clear.

You likely have a lot to look forward to after this life, especially if you try to be a good person in this life. Bad people are not punished on the other side, but they will have to return to Earth and make up for their actions.

The list below applies to the after-life realms we call “the Light.” This is where most souls go after death of the body. Dark or lower vibration realms also exist, where souls who match that energy go, but they always have the option of turning away from the darkness and progressing to the higher realms.

Below are 15 things you won’t say or do on the other side.

Deny reincarnation

After death of the body and entering the other side, it’s obvious to all souls, sometimes painfully, that reincarnation and karma are far more than just theories.

Hold a grudge

Your soul will understand both sides of any conflict, the intended lessons, and why it’s in your best interest to forgive yourself and anyone who ever hurt you while incarnated.

Feel prolonged despair over a lost love

Since you’ll be reunited with lost loves on the other side, understand the reasons for the loss, and more importantly, see through all the romantic and earthly illusion, you might think you made life more difficult for yourself by prolonging the suffering.

Feel like time is running out to find a partner, have a baby, get rich, or reach other earthly goals

You won’t strive for these goals there, but you might plan for them in future lifetimes, and realize you’ll experience what you need to at the right time in the right lifetimes.

Feel lonely

You’ll experience so much love and support that you won’t have room for it.

Force a friendship or relationship for the wrong reasons

All your needs are met, so there’s no reason to exploit anyone for anything.

Be unhappily single

There’s no lack of love, thus no need for romantic relationships, but you can experience one if you choose to.

Lie to anyone, including yourself

Most humans tell white lies occasionally, but after death all is seen in the Light of truth, so it’s impossible to be anything but completely honest. There’s no hiding from the truth after you shed your earthly body and ego.

Manipulate a loved one

Love can only be unconditional there, so you won’t be able to control anyone or carry out a hidden agenda.

Be excessively selfish

Everyone on Earth is selfish to some degree, but since you’ll be extremely empathic, you won’t want to be.

Feel guilty about sex

You won’t feel the need to have sex, but you can if you choose to. You also might feel bewildered by the amount of shame associated with sex and nudity on Earth.

Be plagued by excessive morality and dogma

For example, you’ll realize that “sex without marriage is bad” is a belief of man, not God.

Believe that money is evil

You’ll understand that it’s not bad to make and enjoy money while incarnated, as long as you aren’t hurting anyone in the process.

Work for money

Souls work on themselves, rather than for a paycheck, in between lifetimes.


You’ll have all you need so you won’t need to. Also, you’ll fully understand that even minor theft and other negative behavior when incarnated will incur negative karma that you’ll have to balance.

The Five Stages of Mysticism

Share Button

The five stages of mysticism aren’t as complex as you may think. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to have a long mane of white hair and live in an exotic, remote part of the world to be a mystic.

The American Heritage dictionary defines mysticism as “…consciousness of transcendent reality or of God through deep meditation or contemplation. Mystic is defined as of or relating to religious mysteries or occult rites and practices; one who practices or believes in mysticism.”

You may have deep mystical tendencies and not even realize you’re a mystic, by definition.

Spiritually sensitive individuals, those who search deeply for the meaning of life, and those who make self-realization and personal growth a priority are also mystics.

The stages of mysticism involve introduction, exploration, discipline and application, accessing the other side, and then absolute detachment and acceptance of everything and everyone, including what you can’t change.

The process of becoming a spiritual wizard is as challenging as any you’ll encounter, but if you’re like us and are willing to work at it, you can make good progress.

Below we list the five stages of mysticism, according to our long-term empirical findings:

1. Metaphysical topics such as astrology and past lives get a laugh in Hollywood movies and TV shows, and they are targets of attack thanks to conventional wisdom and indoctrination. Yet as a mystic or aspiring mystic, something deep within your being tells you that there’s more to those occult topics than at first glance. Later you learn that they’re gateways to the meaning of life.

As kids, we enjoyed the show “In Search Of,” hosted by Leonard Nimoy in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The show covered topics such as reincarnation, psychic phenomena, pyramid secrets, and astrology.

We still recall an episode with a psychic who predicted something that came true years later. It may have been the first time, in this life, we seriously considered the concept of predestination.

As a mystic, perhaps you already realize that the reason you are drawn to metaphysical topics is because you’ve studied and, or practiced them long ago in previous lifetimes. Also, while that last sentence may seem laughable to someone who has no experience with these topics, you simply “know” that it’s true.

2. Exploration of mystical topics becomes a fun diversion or hobby in the second stage. You may seek the counsel of a psychic or astrologer, or try past life regression, and spiritual books that offer ancient wisdom (not just inspiration) become a gold mine of spiritual knowledge to satisfy your craving.

Unfortunately, dead-ends are quite common in the second stage. But you eventually find your footing and the mistakes become guideposts that allow you to advance your spiritual growth.

In the early years, we spent countless hours pouring through every source related to our current areas of expertise. It was exhausting, but worth it.

Another downside of the second stage is that friends and family may not be very accepting of your pursuits. As we explored the paranormal in our youth, someone close to us told us, “You’re just going through a stage.” How wrong she was.

3. The third stage of mysticism is application of mystical arts and sciences. Through consistent discipline, you begin to see, firsthand, the links between the here and now and the other side. For instance, your regular meditation leads to prophetic dreams and visions that make it easier for you to deal with challenges in life. You might also become acquainted with archangels and your spiritual guides of the Light.

4. In the fourth stage you acknowledge the divinity in everyone and see patterns and signs in everyday life (e.g., “as above, so below”). You consistently pierce the veil between the mundane and higher dimensions.

The esoteric sciences, including astrology and numerology and other psychic arts, also give you insight about situations and everyone you meet, particularly their karma and timing, and what you mean to each other.

Detachment (letting go), gratitude, and faith are three of your most powerful spiritual tools.

5. The fifth stage involves absolute detachment from and acceptance of everything and everyone, including what you can’t change. We have yet to meet someone who practices this authentically at all times. We aspire to attain this level of being some day. Those who do remain in a state of bliss and nothing fazes them. Typically, people may bounce up to this peak temporarily, but then tumble back down to a lower level when life happens.

Ultimately, the five stages of mysticism involve developing and following your intuition, looking beyond conventional logic and seeking the truth, exploring metaphysics, consistent discipline, making the most of yourself and your life, and accepting what you can’t change. The benefits are authentic spiritual growth and a deeper understanding of yourself and others, which all lead to spiritual riches well beyond what most people can fathom.

Numerology and the Supernatural Date of 9-9-2016

Share Button

September 9, 2016 is a date of significant mystical meaning, as are the dates September 18th and 27th, 2016. The Universal Year of nine occurs this year, as it does every nine years, and nine is a number with great occult meaning.

The Universal Year (e.g., 2016 = 2+0+1+6 = 9) peaks each year in September, and the 9th, 18th, and 27th days of September (9-9-9) represent even stronger transcendental energy.

We wouldn’t refer to the numbers 1953, 1989, or 1998, for example, as possessing a higher than average amount of supernatural energy, but we would refer to 2007 and 2016 as such, in part due to the number 2000 as a base, and 7 and 16.

The modern calendar, we believe, is linked to universal intelligence. Its gradual formation wasn’t random; it was carefully calculated, has mathematical reliability linked to cosmic time, and serves perfectly for calendar-based numerology.

Just as our modern calendar begins a new yearly cycle on January 1st, the Universal Year also changes on that date, as does the nine-year cycle and others.

The world continues to undergo a transition period between centuries and millenniums. There’s a cusp period of roughly 25% between any given year, century, or millennium. For example, 1975 AD to 2025 AD spans the 25% between centuries.

You may not notice anything unusual about 9-9-2016, 9-18-2016, or 9-27-2016, but it’s the peak of the end of an important nine-year universal cycle (2016 is also the start of a new 7 Universal Cycle).

We don’t have a forecast for you about what will happen on these dates because we tend to avoid predictions about mundane, worldly happenings (e.g., geopolitical events, natural disasters), unless we see patterns in multiple individuals’ comprehensive charts that firmly suggest such events, as we do with a 2016-2018 financial market crash.

Without functional quantum computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, it’s just not feasible to offer (often, and with consistently high accuracy rates) broad, universal predictions that don’t sound like trivial, so-vague-they-can-apply-to-everyone horoscopes. There are too many variables to consider, and it may never be feasible. Thus, we won’t give numerology or astrology predictions like, ”You’ll see these events happen at these locations on September 18th, 2016.”

Does that diminish the science of numerology, make it “for entertainment purposes only?” No. We could have said something like this January 1st, 2016: “You’ll see at least a few famous musicians die in 2016.” Such a prediction would be appropriate for a Universal Year of 2016, but then again that could happen, and has happened, in other years too.

Rather than focusing entirely on Universal cycles, such as the Universal Year of 2016, the best way to utilize the inherent symbolism is to connect them to your personal cycles. In fact, they serve as undercurrents and are used to form multiple personal numerology cycles.

Unfortunately, learning numerology is like learning a foreign language. It takes a lot of time and application, but the everyday practical and spiritual benefits are enormous. It, like other metaphysical tools such as astrology and meditation, gives you access to the other side. It helps you prepare for challenges and make the most of your personal fate.

The number nine in a symbolic sense, such as the Universal vibration of 9-9-9 relating to the supernatural, is much more noticeable with individuals born on such a date, or with those with a lot of the number nine within their comprehensive charts. Patterns, comprised of multiple factors, tell us a lot about personality, timing, karma, fate, and compatibility.

Life is a never-ending series of cycles and although the Universal Year of 2016 is one of the more significant ones, don’t worry about 9-9-9 or any other date being a mystical window of doom.

One Major Indication Someone is Possessed

Share Button

How can you tell if someone is possessed? Does possession really happen, or is it a myth?

When we mention possession most people express skepticism or fear. Thanks to scary movies and novels, demonic and spirit possession seem like either science fiction, or something one has no control over.

We’ve found in over 20 years of empirical research that demonic and spirit possession is neither of these things once you understand the concepts, and it’s far more common than most people realize.

Father Cipriano de Meo, who runs an exorcism school in Italy, says that there is one major indication someone is possessed rather than being mentally ill.

Father de Meo says it’s important to differentiate between the two, and that prayer can help shine a light on the problem. He uses a “prolonged prayer to the point where if the adversary (demon) is present, there’s a reaction.”

“A possessed person has various general attitudes towards an exorcist, who is seen by the Adversary as an enemy ready to fight him,” he said. Reactions include ”facial expressions, threatening words or gestures and other things – but especially blasphemies against God and Our Lady.”

We’ve noticed the same thing; a violent reaction to the idea of God, prayer or religion in general is a sign that demons might be present. A disinterest or dislike of organized religion, however, usually isn’t.

Freedom of religion or to be atheist or agnostic is a right in the USA. However, we believe some atheists go too far.

We understand many people have had bad experiences with religion, but when they use it as an excuse to be rude or even violent, they might have demons onboard fueling their hatred. At the same time, we’ve found that religious extremists can also be possessed.

We believe that someone can be mentally ill without being possessed, but that possession can cause mental illness, and mental illness, or what caused it in the first place, can open the door to possession.

Other indications someone is possessed include a negative reaction to the idea of a Spiritual Detox (which might be the reaction of a lost soul or dark energy; it’s easy to confuse their thoughts with your own), feeling blocked, drug use or alcohol abuse, sex addiction, depression, thoughts of suicide, reckless behavior (especially while under the influence), feeling drained, and nightmares (especially of being chased or watched).

Father de Meo says that one must be trained by the Catholic Church in order to conduct depossessions, but their procedure is only one way. Those not trained by the Church clear lost souls and demons from people and places just as successfully with different methods, but most of them usually involve calling in powerful helpers of the Light to assist in the process. You don’t need to be religious to ask for and receive the help of God, Archangels, spirit guides, or other helpers of the Light, which all existed long before organized religion.

He also blames the increase of possession cases on the rise in popularity of the occult. We agree that using black magic and negative spells, or any agreements with dark energy are to be avoided at all costs. However, we strongly believe that astrology, numerology, palmistry, energy healing, Spiritual Detox, meditation, tarot cards, mediumship (as long as you stay in the Light and protect yourself during the process), and other metaphysical tools are harmless and can be very valuable.

Possession is a serious and often overlooked problem, but once you accept that it’s real, it’s much easier to identify and remove the spiritual troublemakers.

Meditation Truths and Falsehoods

Share Button

The truth about meditation is quite different from what the average, inexperienced person thinks of it. Public opinion is shaped by a lifetime of societal influence, such as through Hollywood comedies, written by people who know little about meditation, that lampoon meditation and other “kooky” spiritual practices.

You can benefit by knowing the truth about meditation. Once you start practicing regularly, you won’t want to stop.

Below we list common truths and falsehoods about meditation.

1. People of all walks of life practice formal meditation.

This is true. It used to be that only those whose religion encourages regular meditation or those who were considered social outcasts would meditate. 30 years ago, announcing at a party that you meditate invited snickers and ridicule. Not any longer. Today, all types of people do it.

2. Other than attaining a little peace of mind, there’s nothing to gain from it.

This is false. Medical studies have routinely proven the health benefits of meditation in recent years, including stress reduction.

You’ll gain much more than a little peace of mind. Everyone experiences monkey-mind on occasion, some more than others; your mind is wound up from life’s everyday pressures and it takes on a life of its own, such as when you can’t get a particular song out of your head or can’t stop worrying. You can stop both through this spiritual discipline. Turing the channel in your mind, so to speak, becomes much easier. You’ll sleep better too.

3. It takes too long to do it.

This is false. 20 minutes each day is all you need. Turn off the TV in the evening, or get up 20 minutes earlier in the morning.

We meditate for an average of 30 minutes each day. We’ve meditated on planes, trains, boats, and buses, in taxis and hotels, on mountains, at the beach, and elsewhere. As long as you set aside 15-20 minutes, or even less, you can put your mind at ease and reap other benefits through this discipline.

4. It won’t tell me any secrets that I couldn’t get from asking myself simple questions.

This is false, and we prove it to ourselves almost daily. The subtle glimpses of insight you’ll get from regular practice are absolutely astounding. For example, you can ask yourself about a work-related issue, and in the following hours, days, or weeks you’ll get a (sometimes stunning) flash of insight about the situation.

The main goal with sitting down and going inward is to slow down and detach from your conscious mind. In doing so, you tap into your subconscious, and also your super-conscious, otherwise known as your higher-self or spiritual self and gain access to insight from the other side and, or guides of the Light.

It’s entirely possible to regularly get insight through this spiritual discipline that can change your life for the better.

5. I won’t be able to do it regularly because I’ll tire of it.

This is true, but only to a point. At first, your mind will be trying everything in its significant power to distract you because it feels threatened and wants to stay in control. But once you make it a daily habit, you’ll find that it’s automatic and you’ll look forward to it, similar to exercise. Plus, you’ll get used to the feel-good, healthy brain opiate release that comes from deep meditation and you won’t want to stop.

Find the truth about meditation yourself–start the regular practice and increase your self-understanding and understanding of others and everyday situations, reduce stress, and upgrade your intuition.
