The truth bombs about reinforcing a mentality of shame due to lack of something in one’s life need to finally land. I’ve dropped these bombs on myself because this way of thinking led me and my friends to a life of torment, no matter how many stupid memes we post about how our life is a rancid garbage fire. The “lack mentality,” meaning the constant focus on what you don’t have or the habit of running away from the truth of your reality, is a slow, subtle suicide. As I break down how the “lack mentality” festers within us, the end of each point will propose what I call “Challenge the Illusion” statements. Please apply them to yourself if you struggle with this mentality or find yourself relating to the following points.
No, I’m not talking about the root chakra, aka Muladhara, but the fact that the earth star chakra is reminding you of the root chakra is a good start. Earth is the element of prosperity, resources, and abundance. That’s why tarot decks often use coins or pentacles for signs of financial gain, hard work, manifestation. “Earthing” or grounding is essential for getting your bearings and preparing to face the present moment as it is. The whole existence of humanity is dependent on the interconnectivity of nature itself and I believe that’s why we all have an earth star chakra, the energetic link to Gaia herself reminding us that she provides everything we need and connects us all. So…why aren’t we talking about this more?
You know what your heart chakra is. You just need tools to help open it up so you can work through self-acceptance and forgiveness. I got you.
Abandon the belief that you won’t become a whole person or feel completely fulfilled without “the one” or your twin flame in your life. I promise you it’s the worst type of procrastination because not only does it decrease your self-worth, you’re also encouraging your twin flame to not take you or themselves seriously. In the realm of spirituality, twin flames can be defined as “a divine union with a divine purpose” (Twin Flame Connection 2015). As someone who is currently going through the twin flame process, I truly feel that is one of the most succinct and accurate definitions. It tells you it’s more than a love story, more than living the perfect life. It’s a calling to become more focused on the purpose of the relationship. I promise you, this isn’t some religious, radical mission God gave you or whatever you may think “divine purpose” means. It simply refers to becoming whole. That wholeness has sort of a ripple effect on…well, everything in your life.
So, how many “10 Signs You’re an Empath” articles have you read before you got here? You’re another walking radar of emotion and you just want to understand how that constitutes as psychic. Basically, this means that you are one of the few that intensely feels the emotions and sometimes the thoughts of others. Most people don’t see emotion as something you can sense and physically feel, but you’re proof that it’s possible. It’s not just a chemical in the brain or the imagination going haywire. Emotion and thought is energy and you can detect it, which is why you most likely have psychic potential.
The mind and body are constantly communicating. We don’t think about how natural it is until we try out our mental energy on something that isn’t inherently natural to us, but some people have tried and supposedly succeeded in making the inanimate animated without physical strength. Telekinesis, also known as psychokinesis, is described as, “…The ability to mentally influence objects or conditions in the absence of intervening physical energy or intermediary instrumentation,” (Weschcke and Slate 2016). Basically, mind over matter.
