I like to think of the raising of consciousness like a pursuit in life that one will never totally reach, a bit like happiness, you can find fulfilment in your life through your general attitude, but you will never fully arrive at that place where all the problems disappear.

This is also true for consciousness, you can become more conscious, present and aware. But you will never fully arrive at the place where your mind is totally in the moment all the time.

This is fine, because we need our unconscious mind to guide us through life, as if we done everything fully aware and in the moment we would have to relearn how to do everything, every time we wanted to do it.

Being more conscious is like exercise for the brain, each and every time you throw yourself into the present moment it is a reminder of the beauty of life and the world around you.

To be more conscious is to be more aware. On an individual level this means, being aware of yourself and on a collective level this means being more aware of your surroundings and the world that exists outside of yourself.

Here are 13 Simply Effective Ways To Expand Your Consciousness-

Be Present-

There is no better moment than the one you are in right now, so live in this moment. Don’t spend your time in regret of the past and worry of the future.

Instead embrace the moment you are in right now and make sure you are doing everything in your power to be the best you can be. Do this and the future will take care of itself.

Take time out to enjoy the scenery. Chew every mouthful of your food and really taste it. If you are in a conversation, give it your full undivided attention. Whenever possible, do what you are doing and don’t be distracted.

If You Can’t Be Present, Practice Being Present-

When you have had a life of disconnection from being present, it can be hard to fully focus on being in the here and now.

Take time out every day to practice being present, this can be done through meditation, yoga or just by consciously re focusing every time you feel your mind slipping off.

Your brain is like a muscle that needs to be stimulated, so take your brain to the mind gym from time to time and get into the habit of being fully aware.

Find Your True Nature-

We all have things that we naturally feel drawn to, your job is to remove the years of cultural conditioning and get in tune with your true nature.

For some people this will be glaringly obvious, for others maybe not so much. But if you start the search and actively seek to find what matters to you, with persistence and determination you will eventually find it.

Accept Your True Nature-

Maybe you are an introvert trying to be an extrovert or a socialite who is spending there days cooped up in the house. Maybe you work in the city, but would be happier working from home or you get drunk every weekend just so you feel accepted by friends.

Whatever your true nature is, do not fight it. Accept that you are a unique individual and that there are other unique individuals like yourself who you can connect with.

Don’t try to be someone you are not as this is the most spiritually disconnecting and disempowering thing you can do!

Accept you true nature and fully live and embrace it!

Do What You Love Everyday-

Some people are lucky enough to have a job that fulfils this need. But if you don’t, make sure you still find time every day to do what you love.

If you like music, listen to music when you wake up. If you like to read, take time out for a book on your lunch break. Whatever it is that makes you feel alive, take time out and do it every day.

Immerse Yourself In Your Life-

If you live in the concrete jungle or a remote countryside with no sign of life for miles, embrace it, accept it and fully immerse yourself in it.

When you open your eyes and throw yourself into life you will start to see that there is beauty in everything, manmade or natural.

Walk down the street and observe people or plants or even inanimate objects and fully take in what is going on around you and you will start to notice the miracles that exist every single day.

Be Open Minded-

Don’t ever allow yourself to get to the point where you know everything, be a student and always question everything. If you think you know something never fully know it.

The sky may appear to be blue, but is it really? Or is it an illusion?

The grass may appear to be green, but is that just your perception? Does an animal or even a different human being view it in the same light?

This way of thinking may seem strange, but what it does is open you up to a different way of viewing the world, you don’t have to do this every moment of everyday as you might get a little exhausted. But take time out to practice viewing the world in a different way.

Absorb Knowledge-

Always be on the lookout for new information that will serve you in life. If you have a subject that you love immerse yourself in it.

Read books, but more importantly study the good ones. Take courses from people who have the knowledge you seek. Find a mentor who is an expert in the subject you love and fully submit to their guidance.

We are currently living in a very automated world, in which our phone tells us which restaurants to eat at, our car tells us the direction to drive in and we can just Google the answer to any question we have.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, but means our brains need more conscious exercise, so make sure you give it what it needs!

Accept More-

There is a difference between settling and accepting. Settling is lazy in nature and you saying to yourself- “This life will do” Accepting is an awareness that life will not always go in the exact direction you plan.

There are plenty of things in life that you have full control over, so focus on what you can change and learn to accept the uncontrollable things that are presented to us.

A good example of this is someone else’s behaviour or reactions to something you present them with. You have no control and no right to control this.

So change the things you are unhappy with, but have full control over and accept things that you cannot control!

Understand You Cycles-

Life is one big cycle, made up of lots of little cycles. A day is a cycle, a week is a cycle, but you will also have your own cycles of different emotions. Take note of how you feel and what evokes different emotional responses within you.

If you have moments where you feel down, it doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. Figure out what you are most productive doing in your different emotional states and don’t go against it.
If you are best networking and having conversations when you are high energy then do them tasks in that state.

If you are best being creative and thoughtful when you are low energy, then do your creative work at those times.

Your life is one big vibrational cycle, try to vibe with it and not against it!

Get Clear-

If you are not clear on what you want, you can’t create the life you want. Before you even think about setting goals and creating an action plan for life be sure that what you are chasing is what you really want.

Find out what makes you tick and what you could see yourself getting out of bed in the morning for every day. These things will change over time, but just flow with it and accept it.

Brainstorm, find your values and get clear on what is important to you. This will be your map, and once you have this map you can start thinking about jumping aboard the ship of life and sailing across the stormy seas.

Face Fears-

You usually need to do what you are scared to do in order to progress. Get into the habit of facing your fears every day, as when you do real magic starts to happen.

In the journey of life the people who can be uncomfortable the most without cracking up will do the best. So learn not to fear your fears themselves, but to embrace them.

I am not saying you have to face your fears just for the sake of it or that facing something that is scary but not in line with your values will serve you in any way. But when you start to connect with what is important to you, there will be moments of intimidation that you will just have to face.

Reflect On How Far You Have Come-

Never get to busy or to focused on progression to reflect on how far you have come as a person. Take time out to celebrate your successes, no matter how small they are.

If you want to find sustained enjoyment from your big goals, you will need to learn to celebrate the small ones too. Learn to take something out of everything, even if you feel like you are in a worse position today than you where yesterday, learn to look at the bigger picture and take the lesson out of everything that happens- Positive or negative.

Reflect on how far you have come, because you have certainly come a long way!

What Now?

What you can do now is to practice being present, meditation is the best way of doing this, so if you have not done any meditation before or have, but haven’t had the results you might of wished, get started today. Right after you finish this article.

“Don’t let toxic people infect you with the fear of giving and receiving one of the most powerful forces in this world… LOVE!” ― Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir

I got to a place in my life, where I have learned to honor everyone I come into contact with. To treat everyone with love and respect. To be kind, sincere, transparent and loving with all human beings. It’s how I treat myself, so it feels natural to treat those around me in the same way. But there are times when I ask myself whether that’s a right thing to do. Whether it’s okay to think that there is goodness in everyone and that all people are kind and loving.

When you encounter people who use one another for their own selfish interests, including you, perceiving others as tools and objects that are meant to help them get the things they want in life, and when they lie and act with a lack of love and integrity, you start to question your own behavior. You start to question whether you are right to think that all people are good, and whether you should close your heart to people just so that you won’t get hurt.

“Of course, when I say that human nature is gentleness, it is not 100 percent so. Every human being has that nature, but there are many people acting against their nature, being false.” ~ Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama was right. Underneath it all we are all good, we are all pure, kind and loving, but unfortunately not everyone lives life from that place. And in order for you to continue to live life with your heart wide open, no longer fearing that the toxic and unhealthy behavior of others might affect you, you need to make sure that you get clear on who you are, what matters for you, and how you want to live your life. Because by doing so, you will know how to protect yourself from toxic people who act against their true nature, without allowing their toxic behavior to contaminate your heart.

Here are 8 clever ways to deal with toxic people:

1. Pay close attention to the signals of your heart.

“The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know. We feel it in a thousand things. It is the heart which experiences God, and not the reason. This, then, is faith: God felt by the heart, not by the reason.” ~ Blaise Pascal

If you love to live your life with your heart wide open, and if being kind, generous, loving and compassionate are things that come naturally to you, continue doing what you are doing. Continue being yourself. Don’t keep your light from shining and don’t try to shut your love from others simply because some people have a problem with that. But make sure to always pay close attention to the signals your heart and soul are sending your way.  If you feel that something is off about a certain person, and even if to your rational mind it makes no sense to feel what you are feeling, choose to listen to your heart. Pay close attention to the signals your heart is sending your way and act accordingly. Keep in mind that people are not always what they seem.

“People trust their eyes above all else – but most people see what they wish to see, or what they believe they should see; not what is really there” ~ Zoë Marriott

2. People are not always what they seem to be. 

“And thus I clothe my naked villainy With odd old ends stol’n out of holy writ; And seem a saint, when most I play the devil.” ― William Shakespeare, Richard III

Whether we like it or not, we live in a world where people wear all kind of masks, pretending to be something they are not and constantly playing different roles and adopting different attitudes based on the people they interact with. One moment they wear a certain costume, and the next one, a totally different one. Depending on who they interact with, and depending on how much they think you can help them to get the things they want out of life, they are either charming or not so charming.

Pay close attention to how people interact not just with you, but with everyone else. See if there is attitude-behavior consistency and if you notice that their behavior changes based on the importance of the person they interact with, you should keep your eyes wide open and see them for who they truly are and not for who they pretend to be.

3. Be slow to fall into friendship.

“Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.” ~Socrates

Even though it’s nice to have a lot of friends, you have to remember that real friendships take time. They don’t just happen overnight. In order for you to build a real and valuable friendship, and in order for you to have a deep and profound connection with someone, you have to first lay a strong foundation. So make sure you lay a strong foundation first before rushing into calling someone your BFF.

4. Respect yourself enough to walk away.

“There comes a time in your life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.” ~ Karl Marx (composer)

Respect yourself enough to walk away from all those people who are poisoning your heart, your mind, your soul and your life. Listen to what your heart is telling you. Pay close attention to the feelings in your body, and choose to be honest with yourself. Let no one keep you from living your life in a loving, peaceful, harmonious and balanced way.

5. Don’t take it personally.

“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

No matter how many times you get hurt because of what others say or do to you, you should always remind yourself that their toxic and unhealthy words, actions and behaviors have little or nothing to do with you, but a lot to do with who they are. Keep in mind that people give what they have in their hearts to give. And if they act in selfish, mean, unkind and loving ways, that’s because their hearts are full of fear, full of darkness, and full of pain. Don’t take it personally.

6. Don’t let the toxic behavior of one person make you think that all people are toxic.

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Chances are that you will encounter quite a few people who will use you, who will lie to you, and who will do things that will cause you to feel hurt, disappointed and betrayed. And even though your mind might try to generalize, wanting you to think that all people are mean and evil, and that you can’t really trust anyone, you have to make sure that you don’t allow those things to become your beliefs. Don’t allow the toxic behavior of one person to cause you to think that all people are bad.

7. Never fight fire with fire… you’ll end up in ashes.

“People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.” – Pauline Phillips

If someone acts against their true nature, being false, and projecting their pain and hurt onto you, you have to be very careful not to fall into the trap of thinking that you have to “fight them with the same weapons”. Because if you do, if you fight fire with fire, and anger with hate and resentment, without even realizing it, you will start acting against your true nature; being false and allowing your heart to be poisoned by all that darkness and negativity. Don’t fight fire with fire, because “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

8. Let love be your guide.

Love is who we are. Love is what gives us power, radiance and strength to continue to believe in the goodness of people and the beauty of life. There is no force more powerful than that of love. A pure, honest and loving heart, even though it is seen by many as a “weak” and “soft heart”, it is one of the most powerful weapons you can have against everything that is dark, evil and unkind.

Love is your superpower. And if you can let love be your guide, keeping your heart safe and protected at all times, then you will know how to live in peace and harmony among people who aren’t always acting in alignment with their pure, kind and loving nature. You will know how to love those who act in unkind and unloving ways towards you. And by doing so, your heart will be filled with more and more love and radiance, and your life with more and more beauty, prosperity, happiness and abundance of all kind.

When faced with a toxic person, do you you fight fire with fire and toxicity with toxicity, or do you “fight” back with LOVE? You can share your comment in the comment section below :)
With all my love,

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson

When was the last time you took a break from everything and everyone just so you could spend some time alone with yourself? When was the last time you gave yourself as much love, appreciation and affection as you give to those around you? Most people give a lot to those around them, but very little to themselves. And because of that, they get imbalanced. They neglect their health, they forget about their dreams, needs and desires, they forget about who they truly are underneath it all, and gradually, without them even realizing it, they become a stranger to themselves.

This isn’t how we should treat our own selves. When you deeply love and care someone, you spend time alone with that person. And the same you should do with yourself. You deserve as much acknowledgment, love and appreciation as everyone else. And before expecting to get all of these things from anyone else, you should first learn how to offer them to yourself.

“We need solitude, because when we’re alone, we’re free from obligations, we don’t need to put on a show, and we can hear our own thoughts.” ~ Tamim Ansary

Here are 9 Reasons Why You Should Spend More Time Alone With Yourself:

1. You get to know yourself.

“A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.” ~ Meister Eckhart

You are the most important person in your own life, the hero of your life story, and by taking the time to be alone with yourself, to be yourself and to know yourself, you will reach deep into your own heart and Soul, and you will get to experience the beauty, the greatness and the wonder of you. And what can be more beautiful than that?

2. You learn how to be alone without feeling lonely. 

Orson Welles was right when he said that “We are born alone and we die alone. We come into this world all alone, and even though along the way we will find companionship in our friends, family, and the many people we will meet along the way, there will still be moments when we will be all alone. And even though this can be a scary thought, if we take the time to be alone with ourselves – to love, accept, embrace and make peace with who we are, eventually we will learn how to be alone with ourselves without feeling lonely. And we will no longer have to live in fear… 

3. You learn how to love and accept yourself.

Believe it or not, the more time you spend alone with yourself, and the more you learn to embrace, accept and make peace with your so called flaws, mistakes and imperfections, the more love you will have in your heart not only for those around you, but also for yourself.

“Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” ~ Leo F. Buscaglia

4. You learn how to live in alignment with your life purpose.

Rumi said it so beautifully, “Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” Your heart and soul know the path you are meant to walk upon, the life you came here to live and the work you are supposed to do in this world. And if you take a few steps back from your daily routine, away from the people around you, and away from all the noise that surrounds you, you will be able to connect to that side of you that knows why you’re here on this planet, what the purpose of your life is and what the reason of your existence is.

5. You learn how to become who you are and not who the world thinks you should be.

“There is a voice inside of you that whispers all day long, “I feel this is right for me, I know that this is wrong.” No teacher, preacher, parent, friend or wise man can decide what’s right for you–just listen to the voice that speaks inside.” ~ Shel Silverstein

From a very young age we are taught to conform; we are taught to be more like others and less like ourselves. And the beautiful thing about spending time alone with yourself is that you will free yourself from all these mind traps, beliefs and limitations about you having to be like everybody else. And you will find within you the strength and courage to embrace and become who you truly are and not who the world thinks you should be. No longer having to pretend, and no longer having to hide yourself from yourself.

6. You discover that you are bigger than all your problems.

It’s wonderful to have friends and family to help you when you are faced with challenges and difficulties. But there will be times in your life when none of them will be able to help you. There will be times when you will need to “fight your battles” all on your own. And by spending time alone with yourself, by strengthening your sense of self and by allowing the courage, the wisdom and the power that lies deep with you to be unleashed, you will eventually realize that you bigger than all your problems and that you have within you everything you need to deal with whatever challenges life sends your way. And you will no longer feel afraid.

7. You discover the value and power of silence.

When the mind is quiet, when there are no thoughts and no words to be said, that’s when you can hear your own heart talking to you. That’s when you can hear your own soul and our own intuition communicating to you. Silence is a wonderful teacher, whispering things in your ear and helping you understand things that you won’t be able to discover from anywhere else. And by taking the time to be alone with yourself, to breathe in and breathe out without the need to force yourself into saying another word or thinking another thought, you will understand what Ausonius meant when he said: “He who does not know how to be silent will not know how to speak.”

8. You learn how to honor and respect yourself.

Most people are so used to begging for approval and validation from outside of them, so busy looking for love in all the wrong places, that they can no longer connect with that side of them that knows that they already are enough. That’s why they stay in relationships that make them unhappy, in environments that are toxic, jobs that they hate and so on, thinking that they aren’t worthy of more. And the beautiful thing about spending more time alone with yourself is that it will teach you to honor and “Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.” ~ Robert Tew. Boosting your self-image and self-esteem so that you will no longer allow anything or anyone to make you feel like you are not enough – good enough, smart enough, worthy enough, beautiful enough, etc..

9. You learn how to let go.

One of the hardest things in life is to let go of the people, memories, things, experiences and places we love the most. We hold on to everything and everyone so tightly, fearing that without that to which we cling, we will be nothing. Failing to realize that our attachment interferes with the love we have for that which we cling to, taking away from the purity and the beauty that love has to offer. But as you spend more time alone in your own company, opening your heart and connecting with your inner wisdom at a deeper level, you will be able to distinguish between true love and attachment. And as time goes by, you will understand that true “Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.’” ~ Dr. Maya Angelou

With all my love,

A few nights ago I was sat in a park, which was around a mile from my home. I was sitting there alone, in the dark watching the world go by. This park was next to a main road, so I could see everyone coming and going, cars were passing, people were jogging, but no one but me was in this huge park.

Anyway, as I was sitting there I started thinking, why is there no one here? I thought a bunch of things, but the overall conclusion was that we are (at least in London where I live) spiritually disconnected.

I cannot speak for an entire city, but in a collective nature there is a huge disconnect, here are some of the conclusions I came to while sitting in the park.

We Are Afraid Be Connected

When I sat on the grass I could literally feel the energy pumping through me, this is not something a lot of us are used to feeling.

It is invigorating and powerful to feel this deep connection to the ground below you, yet most people would question, ignore or not even notice this energy.

Historically throughout the world spirituality has always been a real thing, yet in this current age of science we are constantly trying to prove and disprove the existence of things and as a result we have lost connection to spirituality.

Spirituality cannot be contained in the quantifiable box of science, it is not a standardized thing that everyone can learn through reading a book or text and is therefore an unknown.

Spiritually disconnected people get a glimpse of spirituality every day, yet they try to justify, rationalise and make sense of it, instead of just letting it be. This is due to the unknown and we have a deep fear of the unknown.

Don’t be afraid to connect, express yourself and be the person you are supposed to be because you are afraid! We are all afraid, it is just those who do it anyway that reap the rewards.

We Are Afraid Of What Others Think

I was sitting in this park for around 2 hours and I have to admit during that time I was concerned. Concerned that someone might walk by and think I was strange or be scared of a lone man in a park.

While I was there I took a walk around and saw a woman walking her dog and was concerned that she might be fearful. I was concerned that the police might come along and ask me what I was doing in the park alone at night and it is sad that culturally that is the way we feel about just being somewhere.

But I also affirmed to myself that I have the right to be here and don’t have to be apologetic for doing something that I find beneficial.

This was one of the moments of enlightenment I had- that instead of being afraid of what people might think, just do what you are doing and disprove them with your actions.

We Are Afraid To Feel

Being in this park I felt the energy coursing through me. It made me think about my life. It made me think about society. But mainly it made me feel, feelings flowed through me in a way not possible when in doors sitting in front of the TV.

If you are not used to feeling a certain way it can be quite intimidating. If you live an artificial life, wake up and load up on processed coffee, eat fake foods, jump on a manmade train and go and sit in an artificial building, you will be used to living a false life.

When you disconnect from this and enter a world that is real and natural it brings up feelings. Nature has a way of energising you, but it also makes you stop and think and when you stop and think you really have to face yourself. This scares a lot of people, we can get so wrapped up in “life” that we forget to spend time with ourselves. We can become so disconnected with our true nature, that when we do finally get this alone time, we don’t know the person we are sitting with. This is terrifying for many people.

We Are Afraid Of Our System

One of the things that really struck me while I was sitting there was the fact that no one was there but me and 2 dog walkers which passed by.

Why are there no families in a park at night, sitting watching the stars, talking and sharing stories? I was not surprised  by this, as this is the world we live in. But I feel it is a shame that so many people are missing out on that sacred time and space, due to an invisible barrier that has been put up.

I think the reason for this is because we are culturally conditioned to thinking that a park at night is a scary place. A place where hooded thugs hang out waiting for vulnerable people to prey on.

And while in some places this may very well be the case, this is only possible because there is no one else in these places.

When did we become so disconnected to one another that we are scared to leave our homes and sit with one another in a safe, natural and communal space?

Every once in awhile in life you have a deep moment or what I like to call a moment of enlightenment. This can be brought on by a thought, a smell, a feeling or an experience. These moments can lead you down all kinds of roads if you just stop and listen to them! This experience in this park was one of them moments for me and I hope it can evoke a moment for you!

The point of this article is not to try to exclude certain groups of people from one another or appeal to a certain type of audience.  The point of this article to provide comfort and a sense of relief to people who get bullied, called names, and judged for not fitting in with the rest of society.

Some people are just old souls and need to be accepted as such.  If you are one of the people that gets called crazy for thinking you can feel people’s energy, or a hermit for needing to have time alone, or a ‘weirdo’ for believing in alternative things, the best thing you can do is continue to be true to yourself.

As an old soul, trying to conform to a society that is hollow and spiritually void will only cause you pain and suffering.  Don’t let authority figures or institutions pressure you into betraying your passions, desires, and natural state of being.

Here are 5 things that only old souls will understand:

1) THE NEED FOR SECLUSION AND ISOLATION

Every old soul knows the extreme importance of taking time away from life, people, and obligation and spending time alone in isolation.  Life can be overwhelming at times, and the energies of other people can be exhausting.  Spending time alone in nature, or sitting by yourself on a park bench, or spending all day in your room are things which have become necessary for your spiritual health at times.

Some people may call you a hermit or say that you are socially challenged, but you just know the value of spending time alone to detox, reflect, and nurture yourself.

2) THE DESIRE FOR GROWTH

More than happiness and living comfortably, you want to live a life that encourages growth and expansion.  You value growth and experience so much that you are willing to go through pain, suffering, and depression in order to learn more about yourself.

You take risks and go on adventures that other people may think are unwise, but playing it safe is just too boring for you.  At the end of your journey here on earth, you would love to have experienced a life full of ups and downs, suffering and joy, and amazing adventures as opposed to having experienced a life playing it safe.

3) BEING HIGHLY OBSERVATIONAL AND INTUITIVE

From a young age, you have been able to get a really good read on people.  From watching someone interact for just a few minutes, you are able to identify the characteristics that person would have and the lifestyle they live.  It’s almost like you have this software that allows you to look around and download the information on other souls.  This is because you have seen the archetype of that person before in a past life and are familiar with the general behaviour and psychology of that archetype.  You have interacted with thousands of people throughout the course of your souls history, so there is really no archetype you haven’t interacted with yet.

This doesn’t mean you are judgmental, it just means you are observational.  You may find yourself at parties or social gatherings looking around every once in a while checking things out.  Watching people interact, observing the exchanges of energy that are occurring during conversation.  You may even feel more comfortable as a distant observer than as a participant.  It feels natural to you.

Having the ability to get a good read on people has also given you a really good bullsh*t detector.  When someone is lying to you, you know it.  You notice the disassociation in their eyes, the shift in their energy field, the change in the way they pronounce words.  You’ve been through this place many times before, so you aren’t socially naive, even though you may have not had much social interaction in this life.  You’ve always been hard to manipulate because you can see into the real intentions and desires of other people.  You are just good at feeling people out intuitively.

Some people may call you creepy or think you are a wackjob for trying to be psychic, but it comes naturally to you to pick up on the thoughts and energies of other people.

4) THE REJECTION FOR ANYTHING ‘MAINSTREAM’

Mainstream music is heartless, passionless, and washed up.  Mainstream media is polluted, biased, and deceptive.  The mainstream lifestyle is dry, boring, and disappointing.  Because you recognize this, you have adopted ‘alternative’ ways of thinking and living that may seen weird to other people.

Personally, I listen to a lot of atmospheric metal and post-rock because it offers me what I desire to receive out of music spiritually and existentially.  I can’t stand the radio. I remember showing some people the music I liked and having them reply with “that’s not even music”.  I’m sure I’m not alone in knowing what it feels like to feel excluded based on your alternative beliefs, tastes, and preferences.

5) THE APPRECIATION OF THE JOURNEY

You have learned to trust and appreciate the journey.  You aren’t trying to be “deep”, you simply can’t help but be overwhelmed at times with feelings of gratitude, thankfulness, and humility.

You understand that life is impermanent and don’t take anything for granted.  Others around you don’t understand why you like spending time in nature so much, why you meditate so often, or why you stare at the stars all the time, but that’s because they are simply too distracted with worldly matters to see the big picture.

If you identify with any or all of these 5 things, then you can be sure that you are either mature beyond your years or you have lived a life or two on this planet in the past.  The vast majority of the human population does not understand these 5 things, and actually takes pleasure in ridiculing and making fun of those who don’t seem to fit in.

You aren’t trying to be different, psychic, intuitive, or deep.  Your soul is just hardwired a different way.  Don’t let anybody tell you that you need to change to fit the expectations of the world around you.  The world doesn’t need more carbon copies.  It needs more individuals following the things that make their souls come alive.

By Seth M

The narcissist is the type of person who is thought to to be in love with him or herself.  While this often leads people to believe that they are arrogant, confident, or sometimes just plain obnoxious, most narcissists are in love with a made up image of themselves that they project out into the world in place of their true selves.  This is because they are wounded individuals who feel extraordinarily inadequate.

Recognizing when you are dealing with a narcissist can be difficult, as they typically do not openly exhibit negative characteristics.  They’re not quick to brag and usually do not have a pompous air about them; on the contrary, they usually come off as pleasant, alluring and attractive.

Here are five signals that you’re involved with a narcissist:

They lack compassion – Narcissists very easily appear to be sympathetic because they are familiar with all of the right things to say; they know how to listen and then appeal to people’s emotions.  This makes them come off as honorable individuals, but after time this fades, and their sympathetic attitude toward family and friends becomes noticeably phony, as it lacks any real compassion.

Pay attention to how they treat others that occupy ‘lesser’ positions than them, for example: people who work in the service industry, like waiters and servers.  It is easily observable in how critical they are of other’s mistakes.

They twist the facts – Narcissists have no problem tweaking history just a bit so that it suits them.  Leaving out little facts or details and embellishing others just so their point comes across strongly is typical of the narcissist.  Sometimes you’ll catch them changing little details of their story around each time it gets told.

Narcissists manipulate – Narcissists hold incredible apprehension for being rejected or told “no.”  They often find ways to alter circumstances ahead of time to ensure that they will not be told “no.”  Twisting the facts is one way that they do this.

Narcissists seek compliments – Even though they appear confident and charismatic, the narcissist lacks any self-confidence.  Their low self-esteem feeds their insecurity which continuously motivates them to prove their self-worth.  This can be seen when they are fishing for compliments, even going so far as self-deprecation in hopes of someone saying something positively contradicting.

It should be noted that they also commonly praise themselves for their accomplishments and boast about achievement or status.

Narcissists like to look awesome – The narcissist is always puts off a well-put-together vibe.  They know when they look great and they take the time to look great.  They’re highly aware of their looks and the appearances of those who are close to them, meaning they care about the appearance of their children and spouses.  Mind you, not for the sake of the person, but because they are associated with the others, and it would reflect poorly of them.
