I used to suffer from what I can "new age naivete" because I used to believe that all people were basically good and that there was no such thing as "evil" or dark souls. However, after suffering from 25 years of narcissistic abuse, my eyes have been opened to the reality that the world can be a dark and dingy place. It can be an especially dangerous place for souls filled with light and empathy walking among the narcissists and sociopaths that seem to run things on this earth plane. They create chaos, confusion, fear and drama and then feed off all of that negative energy.
Sloan Bella, a metaphysician who channels celebrities who are living and crossed over, talks about the need for all of us to speak our truth in her latest video on YouTube where she channels the energy of Aaron Carter, whose mother is likely the narcissist Sloan speaks of in the video. It is very difficult to speak your truth when you are afraid for your life, the welfare of your family and loved ones and will inevitably suffer a backlash from those in the world who have not yet awakened to their own truth and who have not yet embraced their own light.
When I counsel people who get stuck in victim mentality, I try to help them see the silver lining in their situation, no matter how grim. I tell them that the shadow defines the light. If they are Christian, I tell them that even Jesus had to go to hell before he ascended into heaven. And I quote Carl Jung who said, "no tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell."
I created a video on YouTube to help myself and others remember their own light. The video features a song, The Light, from one of my favorite singer/songwriter's, Sara Bareilles. It includes images of sacred geometry, crop circles, mandalas, geoglyphs and pictures that represent light and/or heaven. Check it out at: https://youtu.be/OSlqXBeJLPM
