Spirit Mysteries is an online, membership-only Mystery School containing hundreds of hours of courses and thousands of students across the world.
Does it feel like the grass is always greener on the other side? It is the most fitting description of how you feel whenever you go online and check out your social media accounts. Whether you admit to it or not, social media's glossy pages make you fall into the pit of the comparison trap.
Everyone who goes online only shares their highlights, excluding every mundane experience they consider ugly. The endless scrolling will make you wonder how to live a better life. It leaves you thinking that your life is not as good as theirs.
But should you even be comparing yourself to everything that you see on Instagram? The straight, no sugar-coating answer to this is NO.
Even the savviest person in social media could not help but compare their lives to those seen online. Everyone seems to be perturbed by the picture of "perfection" projected by every social media user.
The biggest problem in online...

There is no doubt that life is a beautiful thing. Every day, we are graced with experiencing the gift of existence, and through our individual spiritual journeys, we learn to be more discerning of all the blessings presented to us by the Universe.
Yet, a common pitfall we experience through our sojourn through life is expecting all of these blessings to only come in the ways that feel good to us. Sometimes we forget that blessings come in the form of harsh lessons, the loss of something dear, the stress of everything's overwhelming constant motion, or even through a "nemesis."
As much as the word "nemesis" today is associated with an enemy or an oppositional force, Greek Mythology equates Nemesis with a goddess. Nemesis can be thought of as the goddess of Karma, Balance, or Retribution. Instead of oppositional, think of her as the embodiment of cause and effect. Although her lessons many times (if not most) come in the form of punishment for...
A flexible schedule requires rigid principles, a bright and defined vision, a dependence/confidence upon yourself, and an open heart and mind.
There is perhaps no more seemingly paradoxical self-management question to ask than how to maintain a flexible schedule. It may seem contradictory to be productive and focused yet, at the same time, allow yourself flexibility in the way in which you manage your day-to-day. These are, in fact, not competing for ideas whatsoever. When we can find more alignment with our bodies' natural flow, a relatively flexible schedule does begin to reveal itself. The problem in doing this is many people have not permitted themselves to, nor have they genuinely realized that—in many cases—it creates more growth opportunities, so long as we stay focused on the fundamental things we are creating and not the superficial ones.
Yes, this terminology comes from the motion pictures' version of Atlas Shrugged....
Our aura is the semi-physical manifestation of our thoughts and feelings that we have about ourselves.
There are a ton of different ideas that relate to the aura. Some people can see auras, and some people can read auras. All of the reasons that we make decisions relate to the aura.
As said before, our aura is the semi-physical manifestation of our thoughts and feeling that we have about ourselves. It is not a random configuration of colors. It is not something that occurs from the outside of one's self. It exists as an outcome of varying internal processes, and it is not something that one needs to attempt to "change" to move in one direction or another. There is no useful hierarchy of auric resonance. This is a measurement of sorts, but it is not a judgment.
You don't need to "see" the aura of yourself or another to intuit one's experience. You know that when you feel good, you feel lighter, you feel more like you are glowing, you feel brighter. You know that...
Each of us has what it takes to utilize time most effectively and efficiently as possible. The secret is desire.
There is no arguing that one of the essential variables in fulfilling our desires is our ability to manage our time. There are many methods for time management—and perhaps an even higher number of technological tools. The problem that many people have is that they do not allow themselves to become obsessed with something, to desire it so much that time works for them, not the other way around. The solution is to channel that inner flow state as much as possible in the direction of one's goals and ambitions.
What is it that you desire? How deeply do you want it? Don't look at this desire as something that you must give up other things to achieve, but rather, stay in the wanting of it. This desire to be a better person, to hold a particular title, to maintain a deeper connection with your spouse, to create a more exciting life—these are all strong...
Do you have a mantra to remove negative energy around you? Perhaps you have thought of this before, but never seriously. Every time, you just tell yourself that the negative is part of your life, and there is nothing you can do about it.
One of the great teachings of Buddha is that life contains suffering. Whether it is psychological, emotional, or spiritual negativity, negative experiences dampen your spirits and make you feel helpless.
Before you explore the possibilities on how to eliminate negativity, you must understand what it can do to you. Negativity is not just about feeling bad over something. It is not just about a feeling that’s fleeting or that you can move on from quickly.
Negativity can put you in a dark place. It can make you feel dull and heavy. It can turn your feelings into something reactive and often defensive. Negative emotions can alter your view of the world, and it can make you feel a...
What’s the first thing you can think of when you finally finish school? Perhaps the thought of being in the real world excites you. After all, you have spent the first twenty years of your life in school, learning all you could ever need to prepare for life.
But then, there is a part of you that feels scared about facing the real world. How will you survive? Will you be able to meet all the challenges and come out as the winner? Learning skills and lessons about life from school is just one part of what you need to know.
Are you ready for what’s ahead?
Where will you be from here on out? This is perhaps one of the scariest questions you need to ask yourself. When it’s time to leave school, and you need to move on to your new life, you can’t help but worry about what lies ahead.
There are a lot of things that you need to think about every day. They say adulting is difficult, and it can be. These are...
Recall that any emotion that you are feeling is a communication from you to you of a perspective that you are holding about yourself.
Being accepting of other people is natural and effortless. When we talk about taking, we are speaking about being more present and removing the things that we've added on to our perspective-judgment. The primary compulsion to NOT accept another comes from experience—either explicitly or implicitly—and that is based in some form of comparison, or a relativistic "observation."
Your energy flows where your attention goes. If you look for differences, which is what comparing two things or ideas or people is based on, you will find them. This is often called "observing," and this definition can be cancerous because "We are just observing! So it's ok. We are not judging."
Realize that we all chose to be here and all choose the lives that we create, without exception, and realize that this choice is individually ...
Amid these strange times, people have to learn how to distance themselves from others quickly. The global pandemic has put many people in the midst of being alone despite being surrounded by a lot of different people.
While this circumstance may have been brought about by the world health crisis, the self-isolation that we have to maintain has required everyone to be on their own. But how about those who fear being left alone? What happens to them?
At the moment, people are trying very hard to survive amid the feeling of being socially disconnected. It is not about having people around for support and love. Rather, it is about knowing that they are there and knowing that you cannot be with them.
This fact brings about a kind of struggle that makes it seemingly impossible to overcome. Astrology has become an excellent tool that provides everyone with an idea of how they can cope with these changes in community interaction and...
