Beware of the Influencers

Beware of the Influencers

As a spiritual leader and as a human being who has felt very connected to Spirit since I was five, I have always been fascinated with the idea of why people do not change that much. I have also been fascinated with why people become disenchanted and feel disconnected so early in their lives. I totally understood this in the area where I was raised because people had already been so heavily influenced by being told what to do, what to feel, what to believe in, and how life was going to be. “Don’t expect too much, and you won’t be disappointed” is a mantra I remember all too well. When we have sacrificed our ability to use free will and choice and have given this powerful ability over to preachers, doctors, 24/7 news, and other realities, we can change only as the influencer changes.

These influencers cast a great shadow over us and limit our ability to grow into who we are meant to be. A tree with another tree hovering over it will eventually bow down. The same is true for us as we continue to give up our seat, our place in this life. All of a sudden life does not have a place for us. Our childhood dreams and goals become nothing more than shadows left on our trail.

In fact, the believers each had their own special place outside the village where they went to pray in solitude. The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. When grass began to grow…

A Full Life

A Full Life

We have sacrificed the true message of Jesus that says know your connection to your true Father/Creator and you can have a life full of miracles. We have been taught a very misguided and misleading message that has caused us to live a miracle of being dead while we are alive. We have sacrificed a…

What is Sacred

What is Sacred

We have gone amiss by losing the sacred art of ancient rituals and symbols in our culture. It is evident that we want these rituals and symbols, however, because of the popularity of books by J. K. Rowling and Dan Brown and films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones. We long…
