Never Blindly Follow A Spiritual Teacher

You live in a time of information. Lots and lots of information. At the touch of a button or a swipe of a finger, you can access more information than previous generations could ever have dreamed of accessing - let alone while sitting in a cafe or maybe on your sofa! For the first time in human evolution, you can answer your question in seconds with minimal effort. This has been extremely helpful for advancing spiritual knowledge and understanding. Lightworkers (What Is A Lightworker?) now have the potential of getting a more extensive understanding or gaining different views, insights, and perspectives into their spiritual learnings. In many ways, it has accelerated the spiritual growth of the planet.

During my week I get lots of questions about what I think or feel about this or that. Often these questions are due to curiosity, confusion, or for gaining experience validation. All of these reasons are valid, and I love spending time discussing different views and perspectives. However, one reason for these questions that stands out is that much of the mainstream lightworker information and perspectives seem to be at odds with their experience.

Never Blindly Follow A Spiritual Teacher

All too often a question begins as follows: ‘I was reading an article from a well known and respected spiritual teacher that said I should do this but it doesn’t make sense or feel right. Why is that? Because it is that well known spiritual teacher teaching this, then it must be true.’. The truth (What does truth really mean?) about this is that much of the information out there in the lightworker community is inaccurate or corrupted. How can I say this! You see so many concepts of energy healing and spirituality are built upon someone’s perspective. We all have a view that is unique to us, which means the insights spiritual teachers have are not necessarily yours. Their initial insights are then expanded upon and taken as truth.

To make matters worse, these ‘truths’ are accepted without any questioning on our part. It is a sad thing when you see spiritual teachers teaching principles that are clearly just repetition of a concept that has never been understood or thought through. How many times do you see the same information being churned out about things that you have no or very little connection with? As an example, we are taught there are 7 main chakras, each with a certain look, feel, colour, etc. That if a chakra appears in a certain way then it means this? But what about your unique perspective? I work with so many people who get upset when they say that they don’t see a chakra in the way that you are ‘supposed to’. Or they do not intuitively get the same meaning of what a certain chakra is ‘meant’ to symbolise. What about other energetic and spiritual concepts such as soul mates, starseeds, guardian angels, etc?

You will find mainstream lightworker narratives that are taught as truth. If it resonates with you, that’s great. But if it does not then do not accept it as meaning, you are wrong or mistaken. If you do, then you are not speaking your truth. You are a unique being, so your unique perspective is absolutely valid. The other point to remember is that truth changes with perspective, so what you see as truth now will almost certainly change in the future. So never hold on to the truth as an absolute, it is not.

Your Truth Is Just As Valid As A Spiritual Teacher's

The point of this blog post is to stress that you should never accept knowledge or a mass viewpoint as the truth. This includes the lightworker community. Just because the knowledge is spiritual or from a well known spiritual teacher does not mean it is correct. Just because it is a spiritual truth does not mean it is your truth. Always question everything. Seek to have a direct experience of what it means to you. By following blindly what the lightworker community teaches is a slippery road as it puts you in a box - a reality that is not created by you.

Question, discover and follow your own truth. It is just as valid as any truth a renowned spiritual teacher will be teaching.
