"Healing + spirituality isn't making money off people desperate for love, comfort, + clarity.
You can't sell those things.
Don’t get me wrong: charge for your time. But you can only go so far before it’s taking advantage of ignorance and desperation and no longer genuine or serving to anyone."
This statement appeared on my Facebook timeline in November of 2017 and it literally summarized my entire year.
As you can see, I'm not the only one who went thru this in 2017
Spirituality is based on love, NOT FEAR!
Question Peoples Motives
Every time I questioned her ethics, offered counsel on how to handle a situation diplomatically~ she pushed me away using spiritual bypassing and to keep me at a distance. Except for when it involved me spending money on her classes. I started to notice she didn't have repeat clients and people who had been supporting her before I arrived on the scene began to keep their distance. And yet I continued to support her wondering why these people were no longer supporting her?
I was in denial with every bit of proof. I refused to believe someone could serve both darkside and the lightside. The truth is you can't. But you can pretend to serve the lightside while actually serving the darkside.
And the worse part, she had a team of people who all felt similar [wondering about her actions] yet still enabling her to stay this way. Why?
M O N E Y, status and and a genuine desire to study in metaphysics. There seems to be a collective reasoning in the spiritual community. The inner thought process appears logical; If so and so says she's legit, than she must be. Its part of the charm. Lure them in, ask them to write a review about their experience "if they feel guided" and then it began to unfold. What appeared to be person after person loving what she had to offer. But its not the whole story.
I tried so hard to have a heart to heart with her. She denied me over and over. When I realized I could no longer talk sense into her and that in reality, I was actually enabling her -
I backed off but not before realizing... Her behavior is Cult behavior. And it broke my heart, really.
When Spirituality Goes Dark
The Thin Line Between Spiritual and the Occult
I wondered, how could people operating like this be allowed to thrive? I've never seen anything like this. People are flocking to the spiritual community to get away from the abuse of the world. Only to be reminded that nowhere is safe from ego once money gets involved. Phone call after phone call, I am still receiving complaints [about how she operates] from people who think I still support her. Yet no one has gone public with it out of fear of retaliation from her. I am NOT afraid.
This blog is not about her, per se, it's about her path and how she is leading it!
Like my friend Kelley Kline says, "all paths are honored but not all paths are divine!"
This is my truth, my experience but most importantly, the experience of many many people who have gone thru the same with her. Not just her, there are others.
1. It's part of the what we don't want experience that leads us to what we do want
2. When we begin to awaken we realize everything in 3d is an illusion and we do need support to heal the wounds of the past to prepare the body for ascension.
3. Spiritual Abuse is very real.
To learn more about Spiritual Abuse read my blog, Breaking Away From Spiritual Abuse.
And people like her, this is what they are thriving on~ the money of the newly awakened who haven't fully stepped into their power.
This is not the case with me, I am not newly awakened. I had my first experience outside of religion with my gifts at age six and first spiritual awakening age 9. Long before spirituality was trending when there was no need for the word spiritual bypassing.
This is why I am able to see with clarity what the intentions are. There is no mistake in my observation. But you don't have to believe me, you can find out for yourself.
This person (and others who see the $$ potential of the current spiritual awakening) is using the way of the times (clever spiritual branding, a flashy website and sound knowledge of SEO & how social media works) to funnel in those who follow blindly. The weak willed lookong to belong to a part of something greater than what they have previoualy experienced.
It is a deception of the worse kind.
And it makes all Spiritual Leaders and Energy Medicine Practitioners look bad. How so?
1.Because support and love are not given nor taken away like some kind of reward or punishment system.
2. Spirituality is not a cash cow.
3. There's nothing enlightened about threatening to remove someone from enrollment in future classes for cancelling an appointment without a refund.
4. Abandoning supporters if they get sick, or run out of money is not spiritual in the slightest.
All four describe cult behavior. Who would know different if they were bullied into staying in one circle?
Defining True Spirituality
Spirituality defined simply is ~YOUR connection to all that is, as it is. Period. You don't need a teacher, guru, pastor, nor High Priestess to show you the way!
Anyone claiming to be the ultimate or only source of [accurate or quality] information is what is referred to as a fake, charlatan (words used to help others understand not intended to judge). By the way, in case you didn't know, Spirituality requires no theatrics. We are living in the time of the empowered human.
👉The most powerful person in your life, is YOU.👈 Your body's ability to heal itself is far greater than you have been taught to believe
IF YOU ARE, it means you have been charmed.
Be a Leader Among Leaders
Don't worry about hurting someone's feelings. Instead worry about the people being harmed by their practices.
