There is an alarming trend sweeping society these days, and it is born directly from Ego. We will call it Spirituality Gaming: When a spiritually-minded individual refuses to support another, due to fear of the other person becoming more successful than themselves. This is rampant in our circles, and it is particularly noticeable in a community of energy workers, because it directly conflicts with the message we are attempting to convey. What if you could trust that there will always be enough? What if you allowed everything to gravitate naturally toward what flows, rather than trying to validate your own Ego by pulling everything towards you?
This is an attitude born of a “lack mentality”. Most of us were taught that there is only a certain amount of money, success, etc., and if we do not hustle and outmaneuver others, we will miss our chance. I live in a town of 70,000 people, a university town. If even half the people in this city need spiritual guidance, there are not enough energy workers to help, as it stands. So, why are we all scrabbling among each other? It is the lack principle, and the patriarchal system at work, telling us “If you don’t work hard, you will fail”, or some other nonsense. There is enough; in fact, there is more than enough for all of us to be 100% successful, and if you can simply trust this, and let go of your need to feel validated (Ego), you will see this very clearly.
A “lack” mindset makes you stressed, and creates fear, doubt, and worry. Trusting that there is an abundance frees you from these shackles, and allows you to create from a sense of excitement again. You cannot truly create in your passion from fear. Consider the situation which unfolded in my community recently, where I met a young woman who was in need of some guidance, crying and upset. We spoke briefly, and I soon realized that she might benefit from an energy reading, for clarity. I offered her a session, and she brightened up, nodding and saying she would contact me soon. After days had gone by, with no word from her, I was able to ascertain what had transpired. She works with another “healer” in the community, and this person had advised her not to work with me, out of fear that I might “take” her client. To me, this is not only spiritually unethical, it is the height of Ego that you would assume that you have all the answers for someone. First of all, everyone has their own answers. Secondly, I truly believe that working with a variety of energy workers has great value, for each person will mirror different energies back to you.
When you are afraid of “losing” an opportunity, that is your inner doubt. If you can follow this energy thread all the way to its origin, you can address it, and shift it. For many years, I have been a believer in the lack principle, and that has not proven fruitful for me. I do not see it as truth any longer, and suddenly, I feel the desire to help others. I feel compelled to support my peers, and the more I truly love, and lift up, my fellow energy workers, the more that is flowing in my direction. Abundance is an energy, and if you align yourself with this vibration, you will find yourself in the flow.
There is a woman who is a good friend and colleague of mine, and she embodies this for me on a regular basis. She had a client who she felt would benefit from what I teach, so she sent her over to me. This woman has blossomed and expanded her awareness so much in my classes, and I am so proud of her. I have sent her to another colleague in the community for another facet of her growth now, and she is thriving. We are happy for the client to receive the information she needs, from ALL of us. It is about helping each other, pure and simple. If you truly wish to help people, then you must address this within yourself, and recognize when your Ego is out of control. There is never fear, or doubt, when you are genuinely in the flow. Consider disappointment as The Universe’s way of showing you a different path. When things don’t “go your way”, consider that you may have no idea what you are doing, and step back. Allow the energy to bring to you what is FOR you, and release the need to control what comes in. This is truly what it means to be in the flow.
