Spirit Mysteries is an online, membership-only Mystery School containing hundreds of hours of courses and thousands of students across the world.
“What are you so afraid of?” When young children are asked this question, they usually automatically talk about monsters and ugly creatures that come in their sleep and give them nightmares. For young adults, they think of everything that makes them feel insecure about themselves.
While everyone tells you to embrace imperfection, it becomes so much harder to do when you also have to keep up with other people’s expectations. You hate to disappoint those you care about, so you try your best to achieve perfection or something close to it.
You are not perfect, nobody is, but your attempt to overcome your imperfections is slowly hurting you in ways you cannot imagine. Your refusal to accept these imperfections is taking you farther away from who you are.
Embracing imperfection, they say, is your gift to the world. But how does that happen?
Imperfections are a part of everyone. It is one of the things that...
Have you ever found yourself feeling down after listening to a friend talk about her problems? Or have you ever felt enormous joy after learning that your good friend gave birth to her first baby? Did it seem like good and bad situations happened to you?
These instances where you show care and compassion towards people you care about are experienced by many people. It is called having empathy.
While people experience the feeling, they know very little about what empathy actually is. It is considered as the experience of feeling what others feel and understanding their thoughts. Simply put, empathy is all about putting yourself in other people's shoes.
Often, emotional empathy is confused with the concept of sympathy. While the two ideas may be similar in thought, sympathy is the feeling usually expressed in sorrowful situations. Empathy, on the other hand, covers both happy and sad times.
Empathy in the workplace is...
Bad things can happen to anyone, both in their personal and professional lives. Sometimes, relationships, no matter how hard you work on them, just end. Significant people in your life could die, and they leave you brokenhearted.
There are days when you don't want to go to the office, knowing that a colleague will be getting the promotion you wished for yourself. Sometimes, the burden of doing a lot in the workplace with little to no thanks can take its toll on you.
In the advent of all these negative situations, how can you keep yourself from falling apart? How do you teach yourself to move on and start anew? Is there anything you can do to become more resilient?
A "how to live a happy life" essay would always end on a positive note. It would speak of the importance of happiness and how one could bring joy in his own life. A happy mind happy life mindset can always do wonders. But before you reach that aspect...

When it comes to talking about aliens, most people have an immediate reaction to the subject, and it's rarely warm and fuzzy. If you're like most people, your only experience with aliens comes from watching movies and television, and that programming is filled with scenes of abduction, horror, suspense, and feelings of being powerless in the presence of a UFO.
How many of you reading this have a fear of aliens? I find this to be a fascinating subject because I once had a fear of aliens too. I didn't want to look at them, talk about them, or even think about them. When I thought of them, I only saw grey aliens' faces and had flashbacks to scary scenes in Unsolved Mysteries episodes from my childhood.
That all changed about four years ago when I moved to Sedona, Arizona. I was participating in an Alpha brainwave training at an institute called Biocybernaut. During the seven days of training, your brain is hooked up to biofeedback...
First, let me say that trusting yourself is not an activity that you do once, and it is done forever. There are multiple levels and dimensions both of TRUST and SELF. As you level up your ability to perceive more of you, you will be redefining the idea of “you” altogether. Therefore the process of getting to know and trust yourself is a practice, not an achievement.
Initially acting upon synchronicity does take a bit of blindness, but it can be done rationally and experientially, with feedback.
To more fully act upon synchronistic opportunities, you have to be ready for action.
Think about a lightning strike. In just a few microseconds, the energetic equivalent of over 100 barrels of petroleum is released. Consistently channeling this energy into an electrical grid would produce an enormous amount of sustainable energy for a very long time. The excitement of that fraction of a second would energetically carry itself into the future. All that is...
Comprehending synchronicity is important because understanding the mechanics of how something works empowers you to own it and eventually live it. There is a high tendency to look upon spiritual matters as mysterious, and therefore unknowable. This is not the case. As with anything, there is a rational and intuitive aspect, or rather, there is a practical perspective and an intuitive perspective. Bringing some rationality to the equation is vital to move through the awe state that most everyone experiences when they begin to recognize synchronicities.
Though individual deduction and rationality have mostly been absconded by mainstream belief systems that are more rigid (yet becoming loosened) than what is required to comprehend some of the "miraculous" events and experiences happening in our world, simply put, long-standing, left-brained, cultural evidence-based rationality is being introduced to the intuitive truths...
As you have more and more synchronistic experiences and can perceive them with greater accuracy, there will be moments where you will ask yourself to take action upon them, to utilize the guidance that you are perceiving.
Before you can sustainably do this, you will need to trust it, honestly believe it.
Typically, there is so much self-doubt to overcome when trusting synchronicity, because, as I am going to talk about, it is more about trusting yourself. It is not about believing something that you perceive to be outside of you but rather building upon your comprehension and intuition to place yourself in a place of trusting.
Remember that everything that you experience is experienced through your perception. This means that nothing that you can perceive exists outside of you.
There is a fundamental choice that each of us makes consciously or subconsciously, in every moment, and collectively we make together, and it has to do with how we perceive the world...
The idea of owning synchronicity is an extension of comprehending synchronicity, and more broadly, integrating your highest levels of truth—or your beliefs—about the nature of reality.
Having TRUE ownership of your creations and what happens to you in your life is not an activity of the ego; it is a balancing of the wisdom of both the mind and the heart.
It is my truth that we all have a fundamental belief—either consciously or subconsciously—that we are either the creator of our experience or the victim of it. I do not see any real middle ground here other than the process of moving from one to the other.
Where most people get hung up on this idea, and its application is when we discuss experiences relating to what we call trauma, or more judgmentally, “bad things.” The purpose is essential, “I would never choose for such terrible things to happen to me, or to happen to people that I love. Therefore, I am not the...
What is the one thing that you desire the most in life? Practically everyone has their idea of what they want, but they all point to the same idea—the concept of success.
You can be who you want to be in life as long as you know how to focus on one thing. This idea may come as a surprise considering the fast-paced multi-tasking life everyone struggles to live by.
Some people think that doing multiple things simultaneously will bring them the success they want in life. But successful people say that you should be ready to do one thing at a time.
The book "The One Thing" by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan reveals this simple idea. But do not be fooled. Putting your heart and soul on one subject matter at a time is easier said than done. It takes a lot of courage and hard work to make it happen.
The beginning will always be a struggle, but once you have incorporated it in your life, everything will come easy.
Most of the time, people are advised to think positive and wait for good things to happen. Some are even told to stay strong amid a crisis because soon things will work out just fine. There is no doubt that these words of wisdom have merit, but they do not work when people still choose to engage in their unhealthy behavior.
Negative thoughts, emotions, and feelings are sabotaging you in so many ways. They hinder you from building up on your mental health. Doing away with all this negativity can bring back the life in you.
People who want to build up their physical health go to the gym and exercise regularly. On top of that, they also control their food intake to make sure that they lose fat and build muscle.
And yet, what people...
