Spiritual Teachers, Groups and People are a Dime a Dozen – Especially on Social Media

As more and more of us are “waking up” to consciousness, and as social media connects us to more and more people, it seems, at least to me, that Spiritual Teachers, Groups and people are a dime a dozen, most of which, in my opinion (and from the energy I feel/sense from them) are not for me. We all want to “find our tribe” and find a group of like-minded people where we feel that we fit in. Some of us are looking for mentors to help us along the way. As you explore different people and groups and teachers you want to include with you on your journey, my advice to you is to take a step back and see how these people “feel” to you.

Many people and groups (both in person and on social media) that I have experienced can have low energy, and at times, even toxic energy (drama) that they air on social media. You know, the ones who claim to be spiritual gangsters or healers, yet they post or discuss “sensitive” (violent or graphic) content and language that spiritually advanced people wouldn’t do or use?

In the group(s) that you belong to, do you find that the majority of members are constant complainers or whiners? (When you complain, you remain – most of us looking for spiritual growth want to move forward.)

What kinds of energy do those in your “group” carry? A high-vibrational energy? Or a low-vibrational energy? Are they draining to you? I have found that I am (and my gifts are) too sensitive for most groups and I’ve had to exit stage left more than a handful of times.  Learn to “delete” the things and people that drain you! Energies are contagious. The right people who match your vibrational level and find you.

How many people are you connected with whose goal is to “sell” you something – an oil, a crystal, a piece of jewelry, a class, distance healing, a monthly membership, whatever it is, fill in the blank. Does it feel like they are trying to get more followers for their own benefit? Or are they genuinely interested in helping people with their goods and/or services? Maybe they started a meet-up or online group with the intention to solicit to people like you? Don’t get me wrong, we all have to make a living and we all do it in different ways, but if a person, group or teacher feels inauthentic, they probably are and it probably is.

scamWhen it comes to buying goods or services, also take a step back and ask yourself if the prices seem reasonable. Where are the items sourced? If you shop around a bit, you will be able to come up with the average cost of different types of crystals, oils, and energy services for where you live. If something seems to be priced too good to be true, well, as the saying goes, it might just be.  Sometimes the item may cost a little more, but the person or the knowledge that comes with it, can make all the difference.

As far as teachers and mentors go, I feel we all have something to learn from everyone – both good and bad. Some people claim to be “teachers” but I have found that they should be doing their own inner work before trying to teach or help others. You may also cross paths with a teacher who you want to be NOTHING like. (There is still a lesson in that.)

The best teachers and mentors I have had, always gave me the “tools” (not necessarily a program) that I needed along my journey, at the right time. I have been able to incorporate what I have learned from them, into my life, to help me to grow or heal or to expand my gifts. The best teachers have also opened my eyes to different things, but didn’t always give me the answer. They would lead or nudge me to figure out the answer – sometimes on my own and sometimes with their assistance. The empowering ones are the best ones.

I have also found that some of the best mentors, though many ARE on social media, are a bit more under the radar and they post with what I call “grace.” (Not necessarily selfies that look like they belong on a dating site or images filled with “ego.”) They aren’t all “Look at me!”

The “teachers” who try to get a bunch of followers under them or the umbrella of their business, I have not found are the teachers for me.  These are usually the ones asking for a financial arm and leg from their students (or groupies), or a bunch of volunteered hours in order to be certified in something. (As a reminder, we all have intuition, you don’t need a certification that says you have it!)  The ones looking for a monthly, re-occurring membership I haven’t found to be necessary either on my spiritual path, either.

We are all energy. And energy is always in contact motion. With that said, we shouldn’t and aren’t meant to stay in one place forever, whether that means in the same group, around the same people or with the same mentors forever. The universes places stepping stones in front of us and as we advance, new people, teachers and resources are put in our path – if we choose to follow.

Are You and Your Social Media Account(s) Putting Positive or Negative Energy out into the Universe?

How many of us take a step back and observe what we put out onto our social media accounts? How many of us stop and think before we hit the “like” or “share” button, or offer our two cents on in the comments section of someone else’s status?

I recently had someone suggest to me that social media isn’t real, therefore it doesn’t matter what we post. (It’s not real? Then why are we are all spending a crap-load of time on it these days?)

b0cc205a7f3f6b4d94493ec7fd43ba1aSomeone else suggested to me that social media doesn’t necessarily reflect who you really are. (I’m calling bullsh*t on this, too.) If it isn’t really reflective of who you really are, perhaps your evil twin is posting things on your behalf?

Another person I know tells me that she likes to post funny things, mean things and political things but that it DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING just because she posted it –  I disagree.

If you posted it, you put it out there.

Not just on social media.

Not just on the internet.

But you put it out THERE…into the Universe.

You see, we are all made up of energy and energy moves from one person to the next. Everything we do is filled with energy including your thoughts and actions. Energy can have different frequencies and those frequencies can change. Lower frequencies are negative, heavier energies, while higher frequencies are positive or lighter energies. Energy is always in constant motion and it continually can move from dark energy to light energy or from a lower or to a higher vibration.

no neg energyWhen you allow your focus or your attention to be on something, in this case images, comments, memes and articles…You are feeding the energy. So for example, if you if you are spending time posting something mean or negative, forwarding something mean or negative, and even if you are spending time reading something mean or negative that you have allowed in your news feed, you are feeding the negative energy. And better yet, you are keeping that negative energy alive by doing your part to feed it.

By spending time with “negativity” (even on your electronic devices) you are allowing negativity into your energy field. And in return, when you send out energy to the world around you, you are sending out negativity.  In the physical world, we experience the echo of the vibration that we emit. We attract “like” or similar vibrations to the vibration that we are putting out.

What if you take a moment and review the energy on your social media account(s).  Does your news feed have a negative tone to it? After you evaluate your news feed(s), I want to you take a look at the energy in your life right now. How are things in your household, personal or professional life? What about your finances or your love life? Are there any situations that continually pop up or don’t go away?  Are you on edge or angry a lot? Are you surrounded by negative relationships? What about anxiety or depression? Though there can be many reasons why you are suffering from one, the other, or both, negative energy has been known to bring on anxiety and depression in some. Do you feel like you are constantly trying to swim against the current of life? Have you injured yourself, had accidents or been clumsy lately? All of these things can be a reflection of negative energy in your life.

be postive vibeOn the flip side, if you want to attract more positive things into your life, start sending out sending out positive energy in lieu of negative. Did you know that *Love* is the highest frequency that we can emit? So in a world that needs more love, why do we spend time sending out, posting and commenting with negative energy? Why not vibrate at the highest frequency possible? I’m here to remind you to level up.  Everything a person puts out, even on social media (images, comments, memes, etc.) IS energy, just as one’s actions and words are energy as well.

Be responsible for the energy you put out.
