LISA RENEE: “Cord Cutting Visualization”

“Below, I have included a Cord Cutting Visualization as a guideline for working with releasing and healing Attachment Cords.”

~Lisa Renee

 

Find a quiet uninterrupted space to let you relax and take three deep cleansing breaths.

 

Imagine yourself standing within a beautiful peaceful place, a meadow, lakeside, or a sea shore.

 

Take a few moments to feel the surrounding nature with your imagination.

 

Ask your higher self to blend with you or be present.

 

Place yourself within your 12D shield.

 

Then imagine to create a larger flat area in your peaceful place and see yourself contained within a circle of light around you (the 12D shield), as this circle delineates your protected space.

 

Call in the higher self of the person you wish to release attachment cords with.

 

Draw another circle of light (not touching your circle or 12 D shield) around them as you visualize them standing in front of you.

 

Explain to them why you are doing this exercise, that you wish to be free of old emotional conditioning and psychic bonds that have built up in the past or from expectations of the future.

 

That you intend to keep unconditional love flowing between you and be released of mutual expectations for the highest good.

 

Look and see if you notice the cords symbolically and how they manifest themselves.

 

As you sense them, snip them off with giant golden scissors, first from yourself, snipping and removing them and healing and sealing the places with light, then removing them from the other person.

 

Make sure you get snipped all the cords you sense, even looking around the backs of both of you.

 

The snipped cords can be piled aside or left aside.

 

Where possible, let unconditional love, forgiveness and acceptance as an energy of intention flow everywhere, every cell and pore through you and the other person.

 

Then see the person in their circle of light in a space separated from yours. Gather all the cords and see them in a Cosmic Christ White Gold flame bonfire being transmuted and burned away (or you can call in the Aurora flame or Celestine Fire of Transmutation and ask all the cords be transmuted into purity of God perfection).

 

Take a moment to feel the sensation of the bonfire of Aurora Flame energizing, warming and healing your body as you watch the fire destroy all cords and simultaneously revitalize you.

 

Amplify your 12D Shield tube of Christ light encasing your entire being.

 

Bring your attention back into your room and allow a few moments to readjust and breathe in.

 

Use your grounding technique or envision your feet grounding vines of pure and loving energy deeply into the center of the earth.

“We command dominion on this beloved Earth to return to God’s natural laws, the Eternal Living light of Unity Consciousness.

We are Unity.”

Transit to Mother Arc

“We commit and dedicate our spiritual light to completely and totally serve God’s highest plan of Self-Sovereignty for all. We gather our group resources to bring forth the Truth of the light, as we bring all the soul~fragments, entities, sacrificed aspects, mis-qualified vibrations, all energy reversals to be routed through the Mother Arc portal system, in a Return to Rightful Owner release and into the highest expression of God.”

We reunite our beloved human family to be aligned with the Mother’s heart of God, and that the loving benevolence of Christos to be bestowed upon all to heal and resurrect all beings from Moloch’s dark enslavement and nightmare. To be risen in Ascension into the oneness that is the true eternal light of God. Beloveds, rise and ascend in the perfected diamond light of the Mother Arc herself!”

“We have created a container within the Aqua Portal for the purpose of release of all Moloch’s Ritual Bindings via the SRA Grid System to contain these Individuals, Group entities and ancestral energies to be properly healed and transitioned in grace and peace.”

“We command this space as sacred in the name of God and consecrated to the service of the One Source Light.”

“We now prepare this portal for transit out of embodiment and imprisonment for all souls bound to Moloch. Beloved teams please support and provide appropriate transit through Mother Arc Portal.”

“Now we call forth the Aquamarine Light. Beloved Mother please flood our portal vortex with the grace of your Light!
We amplify now the Aquamarine Flame and Current. Hold portal steady.”

“We focus on the Mother Arc Aqua Portal to send all beloveds who have been trapped and bound to Moloch back into the mother arc hub gateway for protection, rehabilitation and recovery. We hold an open heart with an open bridge and allow all bodies, ancestors, fragments, to be surrendered and released from Moloch. All soul fragments are to retrieved and merged back into the heart of Mother through her Aqua Portal. We now see the group and individual souls bound to Moloch relieved of pain and suffering, and healed of their cosmic rage, finally returned to peace and love, reconnected to their true origins and divine right, liberated, free and at one with the heart of God Source. May peace restore the earth to its natural laws in the Glory of God, and the light of the Cosmic Christos returned and fulfilled!”

Release of Bindings

“All who here seek release from the Satanic Ritual Abuse Binding of Moloch, depart now. All who here seek release from the Satanic Ritual Abuse Bindings of Moloch, depart now. All who here seek release from the Satanic Ritual Abuse Bindings of Moloch, depart now.”

“Beloved Beings, go forth in Peace and Wholeness, sustained in Love forever.”

“Beloved Guardians, please oversee appropriate transit.”

(pause to complete — it may feel supportive to tone here, Ka Ra Ya Sa Ta Ha La…… and repeat several times to further establish the calm and serene holding of this process. As we complete, we flood our own beings and bodies with crystalline cleansing light. Breathing the Krysthala through all our systems. pause for breath, 3 or 4 deep breaths.)

“All beloveds gathered here we thank you. We send forth our love with all Beings Released from SRA Bindings of Moloch now. We hold the truth of our Oneness in God’s Light. We seal and end this procedure, we seal it into the Light of Unity Wholeness Truth.”

“We command this space as sacred in the name of God and consecrated to the service of the One Source Light. I hold in my heart the truth of God’s love and perfection, the truth of the Inner Christos in my heart. Through the Avatar of Ascension, I hold all that is God’s promise of eternal life and resurrection to be at one with God’s Eternal Spirit, the God Source. I command this in the Cosmic Sovereign law, as a vessel of God’s Eternal light.”

“Sovereign freedom consecrated to God Source with all intention now is chosen, thank you. Please seal and end our communication tranit portal.”

“Thank you God, Thank you God. Thank you God!”

“And so it is. I love you!”

“I serve the Law of One, and I am the Cosmic Sovereign Law made manifest!”

LISA RENEE (Meditation Library): “Clear Attachments to Consciousness Traps”

Transcript

In this meditation we will address the attachments to our ego personality filter that may skew our perception and connect us to consciousness traps. There are spaces that are used as consciousness traps, which are used to keep a person’s consciousness stuck like a hamster on a wheel, going in circles and not moving anywhere. They feel machined, artificial, sharp. May feel or sound tinny like aluminum foil.

When one is active in the pursuit and dedication of expanding one’s consciousness, knowing these consciousness traps do exist, you can avoid them. To dismantle consciousness traps, we will need to ask ourselves what we are attached to and what we may still blame others for, as a result of our condition in this material world.

We now set our intention to know our unconscious attachments and to release ourselves from any consciousness traps that have been set to bind us to enslavement.

Prepare for meditation.

 

Beloved Holy Presence of God. May we open all channels of Light, clearing all Light fibers to be fully connected and resonant with the Eternal Living Light code.

Prepare to connect to your inner core. As you declare your intention from your heart to resolve any authority issues and defer your ego to serve God and Oneness.

My declaration of intent is to serve my God Source. I commit to serve my Highest Power fully, completely and totally.

Intend to activate your inner spirit and core shield. Amplify your 12th dimensional shield. From within your own 12th dimensional hub, intend to create the handshake with Unity Intelligence and Krystal Star. Taking a nice, deep breath into your heart, exhaling out the breath through your heart, sending it out into your space moving counterclockwise. Set your boundary test: I am God. I am Sovereign. I am free.

We call upon our Beloved Holy Mother Arc. We call upon our Beloved Holy Father Arc and the Aurora families to connect with the re-animator forces of Aurora.

Beloveds, all aspects of the mirrored reflection of Krystal Kaleidoscope, may we support the re-encryption of our cellular bodies and their spiritual energetic memories to be remade in God’s holy image.

All personal and group body guidance teams and ascension teams, may the inner God’s spirit of each and every being utilize only what is required in Divine perfection of God’s plan and God’s will. For those new with us, please provide the sequence levels required to activate each being into their God Spirit Light Bodies in Divine harmony and in the Divine grace of God.

Now let us bring our full attention to the process of reconnection. The process of reconnecting every single part of your body to be aligned and directly connected with God Spirit.

Beloved God self, please open all spiritual energetic communication links between God, mental bodies and body parts. Imagine your direct connection with God. Feel the presence of unconditional love surrounding you, filling you. Every cell and pore of your body is feeling the deep warmth, comfort and peace, in a soft blanket of unconditional love, kindness, feeling completely, safe, secure, loved and protected.

Bring your awareness to sense the omnipresent loving feeling of God as with you now. Inside you now, all around you now. Bring to your mind and start to place the deeper connections which penetrate all aspects of your body to be fully saturated by this feeling of being in love and peace with the Holy omnipresence. Connect your deeper feeling with this Holy Presence. Sense its connection with Christ. Feel the presence of Christ consciousness. Feel the presence of love, wisdom, compassion, transmitting from feeling at one with Christ Sophia.

See your inner male and inner female inside your body. Call upon an image of your inner male and female, unified inside your heart. See them holding hands as one being, wearing the wedded garment, the white robes of Holy Presence. Feel the connection of this unified male and female, sending unconditional love to your Monadic Spirit. Sense this connection of inner Christ Sophia uniting with you, throughout all of your Monadic lifetimes.

See the unconditional love moving as a pink golden light, moving through all perfect peace and love. Through the Monadic identities that unite all histories into a golden fabric woven throughout time. See the Monad family awakening into the realization of peace. Awakening into the higher consciousness of perfect peace and love.

As the Monad family becomes as one, now see the unconditional love from the Monadic spirit body remembering the soul. Connecting deeply to the soul. Remembering to be the parent to the soul. Loving the soul back into Oneness. The Monad extending the hand to the lower dimensions of the soul, reaching out to unify and bless the soul.

Coming into your heart and feeling the depth of love for your soul. Feel the all-encompassing love for your heart and soul, appreciation, gratitude, acknowledgment of your Divine purpose. Allow the feeling of purpose and living your spiritual truth to fill you with gratitude.

Through the eyes of the soul, through the window of the soul, we connect our soul purpose to the wholeness with God. To the etheric layer of your body, see the soul connecting through the many fine etheric webbings through your heart and soul body that give you the privilege of feeling emotions. To be able to receive and feel a spectrum of emotional states: to feel, to love, to sense, to taste. All of your senses, all of your spectrum of emotion are a gift from your soul. Allow yourself to feel deep appreciation for these intense emotions, allowing your unconditional love to go even deeper inside your heart. Connect this feeling of unconditional love to your mind.

With all of the love in your heart send this pink golden love to your mind. Intend to connect your heart and soul to your mind. See your brain. See your thoughts. See your mind. All filling up with the unconditional love from your heart. The love that flows directly from the Cosmic Heart of the Holy Presence. See your brain as it fires in its little electrical storms, igniting every area of your brain with the pink golden light of unconditional love. Intend to light up your brain neurons, your brain neural net with love. Now send that love into your entire central nervous system. Imagine your central nervous system with millions of the tiniest little sparks of light, generating unconditional love from your brain and central nervous system.
With every involuntary action, with every breath, your body is lit up in the light of unconditional love.

Running these love energies throughout your nervous system. Follow the pink golden light of unconditional love throughout your spinal column, igniting a massive force of love down your back. Starting at the back of your head, see a large blast of white and pink golden light igniting from your crown. Generating that blast of light moving down your back, following down your spinal column. Feel the warmth generating at the top of your head. Follow that warmth down your body, down your back and spine. Allow the energy, warm and soft. Allow the power of love to flood your spine. See it igniting the chakras, pushing out from inside your center vertical channel in line blasting out the white force of love moving down your back.

Focus on the back of your neck, see a massive boost of white light and flood of unconditional pink love bursting out, emanating from the front and back of your neck.

Focus on the back of your heart. See a massive boost of white light and flood of unconditional pink love bursting out, emanating from front and back of your heart and chest. Focus on the front heart area. See a massive boost of white light emanating out of your heart with ribbons of unconditional pink love bursting out from your heart center and moving down into each shoulder and arm. Moving down into the palm of your hands. Moving this love out from all of your fingers. Feel your fingertips completely activated with love energy.

Now focus on the back of your stomach. See a massive boost of white light and flooding unconditional pink love, bursting out and emanating from the front and back of your mid-back area to the front of your stomach and solar plexus.

Focus on the lower back of your hip area. See a massive boost of white light, flooding unconditional pink love bursting out and emanating from the front and back of your entire hip and pelvic area.

Bring your focus in between your legs at the perineum. Again, see a massive boost of white light, flood of unconditional pink love bursting out from the entire areas underneath you, throughout your sexual organs and perineum.

Now focus on your knees. See a massive boost of white light, a flood of unconditional pink love bursting out from the entire areas on the front and back of your knee caps.

Now focus on your ankles. See a massive boost of white light. A flood of unconditional pink love bursting out from the entire areas emanating from the front and back of both of your ankles.

Now focus on your feet. See a massive boost of white light and a flood of unconditional pink love bursting out and emanating the entire areas on the top of your feet and the soles of both of your feet. Feel each of your toes completely activated with love energy.

Now bring your focus to the base of your 12th dimensional shield. Intend to send that unconditional love into your shield, into the base.
Now intend to go down further into the Earth core. Push the love energy down to the Earth core and intend to say, “Hello,” to the Mother Presence. Send all of the unconditional love as a powerful force of the Holy Presence into the Mother Earth aspect, igniting all of her crystal shelves. With all of the love you feel in your heart.

As mother feels you, she will send her love back. From the Earth core, Mother returns her love through the Aqua Ray and Divine firewater. Feel the crystalline flood aqua blue light, infused with the spirit of ether of our Mother returning back to you through your central column. Allow the crystal mixture of fire and water in a liquid blue mist to fill you. Mother’s gift of revealing to you that she is protecting you. She is supporting you.

Now ask your God self: is there any part of my body that requires reconnection to God? You may be completely connected or there may be parts that need intentional connections. Listen for the name of the body part to be given when we asked the question again. And in your mind’s eye, intentionally connect those specifically named body parts and intend to give them directly to God.

Beloved God self is there any part of my body that requires direct connection to God? Please reconnect those parts now.

If you are able, say the parts out loud by name.

Beloved God self as all parts are completely reconnected and under the direct authority of my God Christ self, please axiatonally align all of my body parts to be completely unified with God’s Spirit, vertically, horizontally, diagonally and spherically.

Beloved God, thank you.

We now set the space required in our consciousness in order to be made aware consciously of any attachments that we have. Either thought forms, fixations, traumas or spirit attachments that have connected our aspects of consciousness to be trapped in any kind of enslavement device used as a hyper dimensional pocket, astral plane trap, consciousness trap or any aspect of my identity for any sub personality or connection that I may have from past, present or future that has subjected me to this consciousness trap.

See the transmutation of white fire, Celestine Fire filling up with white golden light of God’s unconditional love where any attachment has been.

Beloved God, I completely renounce any attachment cord and consciousness trap that has been cleared here and now. They are made null and void throughout all timelines. My authority is fully with the one heart, mind and body of God. All previous authority that has been made is terminated from access over my consciousness in any timeframe and time zone. I collapse any consciousness trap. I collapse any astral trap that has been used to confuse me. I cast this burden of structure to be given back to God.

Beloved Holy Cosmic Mother please remove all raw materials that were used in this structure, return them back to the Godhead, made neutral through the Aqua portal now.

Beloveds, thank you.

And as we clear memories and influences, we move this clearing from the quantum spaces into the in-between of the un-manifested spaces and into the manifest.

I am the Cosmetic Sovereign Law made manifest.

Now bringing your focus back to your breathing. Feeling the sensation of your physical body. Firmly grounding your presence into the now.

System-to-system balance and align. Beloveds, thank you for this opportunity. It is with reverence and love we are home in the Light. Our infinite stream of love is with you. As we seal our session, we seal our container into Light of wholeness, union and truth. And so it is. Beloveds, thank you.

MATEO SOL: “11 Traps That Sabotage Spiritual Growth”

“No matter what the practice or teaching, ego loves to wait in ambush to appropriate spirituality for its own survival and gain.”

~Chögyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

 

Spiritual growth is an experience we all go through once we have experienced the spiritual awakening process. As we begin to awaken to the truth of who we are, we develop a connection to our authentic essence, higher nature or Soul.

As we progressively advance on our paths, our spiritual essence begins to blossom like a luminous flower deep in our heart. And the more we clear away the dead, gnarled and overgrown beliefs, perspectives, and emotional baggage within us, the more clearly we feel our divine essence. When we maintain our inner garden, we feel more and more love, wisdom, peace, and wholeness as our True Nature is revealed slowly to us.

Yet, like any garden, our metaphorical inner landscapes can be consumed by weeds, plagues, and forms of pollution that strangle anything beautiful we have been nurturing. Sometimes, we even sabotage the growth occurring within us ourselves, without knowing it.

What is Spiritual Growth?

“This isn’t a journey about becoming something.  This is about unbecoming who we are not.”  

~Adyashanti, The End of Your World

 

Spiritual growth is the process of awakening to your true nature, purpose, and potential. When you undergo spiritual growth you experience an expansion in awareness and insight, also known as higher consciousness. All spiritual growth has one objective: to help you embody your Soul, Higher Self or Atman. Once you are able to unite with your Soul, you will experience what is understood as enlightenment, “heaven,” Oneness or moksha.

The problem with the spiritual journey is that it is often laden with traps of many kinds. These traps are not physical, but they are instead mental and are often referred to as anti-awakening forces.

As we process life primarily through the mind, we also tend to approach spirituality with the mind. The issue with this is that spirituality cannot be contained by the limitations of thought. Once spirituality is captured within a thought, it ceases to maintain its true essence and instead becomes a constricting belief or dogma. In other words, spirituality loses its alive, ever-flowing essence once it is compartmentalized within the mind.

Think about it this way: have you ever felt immense awe and wonder in the presence of something beautiful and enchanting like a sunrise? The moment you stop immersing yourself in the feeling of the sunrise, and start taking a photo of it or describing it in a text message, is the moment you are no longer truly present with the sunrise. Instead, you are filtering it through your thoughts or through a lens of some kind. The same can be said with spirituality.

The more we use the mind to approach our Soul, the further our Soul feels. But the moment we drop our thoughts and allow ourselves to purely feel our Soul, suddenly we feel at home once again. Think of it like this: when you chase the sun on the horizon thinking you will reach it, you never will, because it is an illusion. But when you stop and feel the sun’s presence shining on your skin already, you will no longer chase anything.

It is difficult for us, as mind-oriented beings, to become conscious of our thoughts, as we have been conditioned to identify with them since a young age. But once we can observe our thoughts and how they tend to sabotage our happiness, we will experience true spiritual growth.

11 Traps that Sabotage Spiritual Growth

Below I want to share with you eleven of the most common traps that we fall into on the spiritual path. I have personally experienced these pitfalls many times, and they have resulted in a lot of pain and struggle. See how many of these traps you can identify with:

1. The trap of spiritual bypassing

Spiritual bypassing is the practice of using spirituality to avoid, suppress or escape from certain emotions or situations in life. Common types of spiritual bypassing include:

  • numbing one’s emotions through “spiritualized” repression and avoidance
  • unhealthy obsession and attachment to the positive (e.g. positive thinking) and adopting a passive-aggressive “nice” mask
  • debilitating judgment about one’s negativity or shadow self
  • anger-phobia
  • weak personal boundaries
  • blind or excessively tolerant compassion (to the detriment of oneself and the other)
  • forcefully trying to “kill” the ego and condemning it as “bad/evil”
  • exaggerated detachment
  • getting stuck in theoretical spirituality and dogmatic beliefs about “truth”
  • denial of self-responsibility by placing it on another higher being (e.g. spirit guide, angel)
  • delusions of having arrived at a higher level of being
  • using spiritual practices to escape unpleasant emotions; for example, using meditation to dissociate from emotions, rather than transmute them

2. The trap of superiority

This manifests as the tendency to “look down” upon others who are not as “consciously advanced” or “awakened.” The trap of superiority can be seen as a subtle feeling of “being better” than others who aren’t “spiritual.” In more extreme cases, this trap can appear as the tendency to lash out at people who are still “asleep,” “blind” or “sheep” of society. This kind of reactive behavior can often be seen in people who have just “woken up” to the state of the world, yet have undergone minimal spiritual growth. We need to remember that everyone is doing the best they can at their level of consciousness. When the time comes, they will awaken too.

3. The trap of forcefully trying to wake others up

Once we have awoken out of the “matrix” it is common for us to desperately want our loved ones and fellow peers to awaken. We can see how much pain and delusion other people are in, and that riles up in us the intense desire to “show them the truth.” However, often our attempt to forcefully awaken people misfires quickly. Even though we have good intentions, our desire to “save” others causes them to backlash in ways that infuriate both them and us. The less responsive they are to our pushy attempts to “wake them up,” the more frustrated and alienated we become. Eventually, trying to force others to wake up ends up harming both ourselves and others. Not only that, but this trap generates a lot of anger and misunderstanding, which results in further ego ensnarement, sabotaging our spiritual growth. Let people wake up when they are ready.

4. The trap of wanting to help others

This trap is closely entwined with the previous trap except it is more geared towards giving others advice. There is nothing wrong with wanting to help others, as long as you respect their boundaries. But sometimes developing an expanded spiritual perspective gives the ego an opportunity to feel more “knowledgeable” than others still trapped in illusion. When unsolicited advice is given to others, the results can be disastrous (think anger, upset, offense etc.).

Wanting to help others can also be used as a way of escaping our need to help ourselves. Under the guise of being “spiritual” and compassionate, helping others can be just another form of spiritual bypassing.

5. The trap of wanting to revolutionize the world

Once we wake up to the lies and corruption present in our current societal structure, many of us want to desperately change society. We fall into the trap of thinking that freedom, honesty, and justice can be created by changing the external system. As a result, we buy into the “us versus them” and “divide and conquer” mentality that is a product of the ego’s tunnel vision. We don’t realize that we’re actually fuelling the corrupt system which depends on anger and chaos to thrive and survive. Instead of understanding that all true change comes from an internal revolution, we get caught up in the pursuit of external revolution which is fragile and transient.

6. The trap of meaninglessness

Once we experience divine and transcendent states of being in which we become One with all, we can fall into the trap of spiritual nihilism after the experience passes. In other words, once we realize, from the perspective of the Universe, that nothing we do ultimately matters because all is passing, we can fall into a depressive mindset. Using truths such as “All is an illusion,” the person who falls for this trap tends to filter life through the mind. By mentally clinging to these truths, they become beliefs that the ego uses as an excuse to paradoxically feel separate from existence.

7. The trap of avoiding everyday responsibilities

Some people get so infatuated with the spiritual path that they avoid dealing with ordinary, everyday affairs. This form of escapism can lead to leeching off others, not paying bills, evading taxes, obsessing with “living off the grid,” etc. When avoiding everyday responsibilities is worn as a badge of being consciously elevated or “more spiritual” this too is a form of egotism in disguise. Avoiding ordinary responsibilities which are not perceived as being “spiritual enough” can also be a form of distraction that the ego uses to limit spiritual growth. The more concerned and obsessed you are with living an outwardly “spiritual” looking life, the more distanced from your inner work you become. Sometimes we need to feed the sharks to keep the calm and live balanced lives.

Remember the old Zen saying: “Before Enlightenment: chop wood, carry water; after Enlightenment: chop wood, carry water.” We need to be humble and recognize that ordinary daily life is the perfect place to spiritually grow and mature.

8. The trap of self-victimization

Soon after we experience a spiritual awakening and wake up to the insanity of the world, it is common for us to get stuck in self-victimization. We may start to perceive the world as a “prison” and other people as the “captives” or even “capturers.” The shock of awakening may send us spiraling into anxiety and paranoia. Inevitably, we may start feeling like victims resulting in us blaming other people and the higher powers for how we feel. The spiritual trap of self-victimization can be seen a lot on social media which often tends to become a pity party for spiritual fledglings. At the end of the day, we need to see that it is actually our thoughts that cause us to suffer, not other people or situations. Once we can take self-responsibility for our perspectives and beliefs, we can become empowered once again.

9. The trap of the Savior Complex

This trap is related to the previously mentioned trap of wanting to help others. The Savior Complex is adopted by people who feel a sense of superiority to the rest of humanity. Their sense of being “different” and more “spiritually elevated” can make them feel as though they are destined to fix the world. The Savior Complex can most often be seen within the “lightworker/Starseed/healer” circles who tend to put themselves up on pedestals, believing it is their cosmic duty to “save the planet.” This perception aligns with the belief that there is something “wrong” with reality and that other people are “broken” and need to be fixed (which is an ego perspective). This perception also reinforces the ego’s sense of “specialness” and self-importance.

The Savior Complex can go one step further and evolve into a Martyr Complex. Martyrs believe they must “bear the burdens” of others. Obviously, this is an extremely unhealthy way of living which is based on Christian conditioning (think of the story of Jesus). By “carrying” other people’s pain, Martyrs bypass taking responsibility for their own happiness and enable other people’s immature behavior. Read more about the Martyr Complex.

10. The trap of attachment

After experiencing profound and expansive mystical experiences which often come after significant spiritual growth, it is common for us to attach to the experience. It can be painful to come down from these experiences and return back to usual, unenlightened reality. We can also attach to our “stories” and beliefs about spirituality. Because the mind tries to make sense of this transcendent experience, it will often latch onto various ideas as a form of control. But the more we attach to our beliefs, stories, desires, and mental interpretations, the more we suffer. We forget that everything passes, even transcendent experiences. Enlightenment isn’t a destination, it is a complete surrender; a fundamental shift in the way we approach life.

Attachment is perhaps the most common trap that sabotages our spiritual growth. On one hand, attachment to ideas helps us to grow, but ultimately, those ideas that we are unwilling to let go of end up stagnating our growth. When ideas become protection blankets rather than catalysts for our growth, there is a big problem. We need to realize that freedom cannot be experienced through the mind. Freedom is felt when we can be liberated from attachment to our thoughts.

11. The trap of relying on external answers

As we progress through our spiritual paths it is normal, and beneficial, for us to seek out external support. Reading books, attending workshops and seminars, going to retreats, practicing holistic techniques, and getting a personal guru all help us experience spiritual growth. However, after a while, it is common for us to become too dependent on external answers for our freedom and happiness. This pitfall can be seen in many spiritual seeker’s obsession and glorification of their gurus (in other words, projecting and disowning their divinity onto another).

Eventually, as we become accustomed to constantly searching outside of ourselves for answers, we forget the presence of our own Souls. We forget that our ultimate source of guidance and wisdom comes from within us, and instead, we keep chasing things outside of ourselves that we believe will “enlighten” us.

We need to stop, pause, and reflect on our spiritual journeys. Are we seeking out first-hand experience or second-hand experience given to us by others? Don’t forget to look within for your answers as well because it is by connecting with your Soul that you will ultimately experience freedom.

Final Thoughts

In order to see through and extricate ourselves from these traps, we need to be radically honest with ourselves. We need to be willing to see that we have indeed gone astray and have fed into the ego. We will also immensely benefit from exploring our Shadow Selves and exploring our mistaken beliefs.

Don’t worry if you have fallen into any of these traps. We all become ensnared by the ego. It can be particularly difficult for us to see clearly when the ego “spiritualizes” certain beliefs and ideas. The more open, humble, and honest you are, the more you will be able to see through these tricks and liberate yourself.

Finally, don’t be afraid of the dark. Don’t be afraid of being wrong. Everything, no matter how painful, is a learning opportunity. At the end of the day, your Soul is everything you have been searching for.
