You will recognize a true spiritual teacher because they can hold space for you to heal your own wounds without manipulating the healing experience.
A true spiritual teacher will ensure that you feel safe enough to share your insecurities, doubts, questions, and fears. They will hold a space that enables you to heal yourself and explore the depths of your being without judgment or criticism. A spiritual master will not manipulate the experience by forcing his/her own agenda upon you. They won’t tell you what to do and how to do it. They don’t want to control your healing process but rather allow you the necessary autonomy while giving guidance in a way that empowers you to make your own decisions, mistakes, and lessons.
What they actually care about is how much responsibility you are willing to take for your own healing. How far are you willing to go into self-exploration? This may sound like a challenge, because it is!
They step outside the box when it comes to how they think and how they live their lives.
• They don’t think like everybody else.
• They don’t follow the status quo.
• They think for themselves, and they’re not afraid to be different than everyone else.
• They don’t blindly follow trends or popular opinions just because everyone else is doing it.
• Instead, they question things and form their own opinions about what’s happening in the world around them.
• They are open-minded and independent thinkers who know that a good idea is a good idea regardless of where it comes from, even if that means rejecting a popular belief or tradition.
A spiritual teacher is a non-prejudiced, realistic, down-to-earth friend who recognizes people for who they are, not what they are.
When you are seeking to develop a relationship with a spiritual teacher or mentor, it’s important to not be misguided by external factors, such as their physical appearance, what they do for work, or where they come from. Any individual can be the perfect mentor, and any place can become your teacher.
A true spiritual teacher is someone who has discovered peace and happiness within themselves. They may have spent years on the path of self-discovery before deciding to share their knowledge with others. A teacher will help you realize that the path to fulfillment lies within yourself, not outside of yourself in material objects or shallow relationships.
They will love you more than anyone else has ever loved you in this lifetime. They never hold back. They allow themselves to be vulnerable around you.
They will teach you something without having to say a word. The lessons are embedded in the fabric of their being.
A good spiritual teacher doesn’t need to say a word. They can teach you by the way they treat others, by the obstacles they have overcome in their own lives, and by their energy.
They understand that we live in an entropic universe that is constantly falling apart just to rebuild itself more gloriously than ever before. This provides us with one of the greatest opportunities for not just personal growth but universal growth too. The world only moves forward once it has reached a point of chaos or crisis.
Spiritual teachers understand this fact and are able to use it to propel us all toward progress when we are willing to listen to and learn from them. There is so much you can learn from people who have made mistakes, who have failed and risen again because they have been there before. They know what it looks like; they know how it feels as well as what you must do to move past it altogether. And most importantly, the know the path you have to take because they have walked that path themselves before.
Spiritual teachers give their presence away generously and effortlessly.
A spiritual teacher is one who gives you their presence in a way that makes you feel uplifted and empowered by contact with them. You know when this happens because of the way your body feels when it happens. Spiritual teachers don’t take energy away from others; They will not ridicule you or criticize you if you don’t follow your practice on your own as they suggested but they will dive deeper to find out what is blocking you subconsciously from the experience and acknowledge that more training with the presence of teachers might be required before you follow your practice like a master on your own.
A good spiritual teacher embraces your willingness to grow and will guide you with patience.
They don’t identify with the ego. Instead, they focus on the energy that connects us all—the soul, God, or simply put, oneness and love.
Their approach is heart-centered rather than head-centered, but it does not mean that they lack intelligence; quite the contrary! They often possess great awareness along with an ability to communicate their ideas in a simple language without becoming too philosophical or esoteric about them.
When someone talks a lot more than necessary or uses too many difficult words and phrases that are often completely new to you, they are not talking from the heart, they are talking from their ego. If you don’t understand something immediately when someone says it, it means that they are not talking in order for people to learn a new thing but they are talking because they like to hear themselves talk.
So many times I start watching videos of lesser known spiritual teachers only to move away from it after only a few minutes. During this short time they use such difficult and complicated language with about 27 “new age terms and phrases” that I didn’t understand what they were even trying to convey. If I don’t understand it’s not looking good for others who have less experience and understanding of higher concepts.
This is a typically example of someone who uses words to hear themselves talk. The ego love that. And that’s the place where most spiritual teachers start and most get stuck at this stage for a very long time. Unfortunately, many at the beginning of their journey to enlightenment confuse difficult words and super high-tech new age terms with true wisdom.
Here’s an example of a phrase a beginner will not understand:
“The Council of Light will guide you to access your multidimensional avatar through the activation of your merkaba by aligning your electro magnetic frequency resonance field to the quantum experience of multidimensional existence.”
I didn’t understand this, did you? lol but I guess it sounds really “spiritual” and high level.
Here’s the translation:
This reality is not the only reality and you are not just this body. You are a being of light and as you start realizing this more and more the world around you will change.
Do you see the difference? The first example would come from a teacher whose talking from their ego and to their ego, they’re not talking to you. It’s not about you, it’s about them. Someone who follows this kind of teaching will waste a lot of precious time but may still learn a great deal of discernment along the way.
The translation is what someone would say who wants you to understand, to be triggered in a way that will lead to growth. This language is easily received by the heart without the interference of the intellect and that’s exactly how it should be.
There’s no need to pretend to be oh so “spiritual”. Everything comes from spirit. Spirit is the essence of all existence.
Humans are incredibly difficult beings who make things unnecessarily hard for themselves. Spirit is wonderfully at ease.
Relax and listen carefully to what your heart is saying.
Have faith in yourself and believe that everything occurring in your life is happening for your highest good. You will know who speaks from the heart as their words enter your heart naturally. In the worst case scenario, you will get a lesson in discernment.
And so, it is important to listen carefully to what your heart is saying. You are born with the ability to see beyond what your eyes can see and feel beyond the emotions that you may be experiencing at present. You have been blessed with an intuitive nature of knowing what is right and what is wrong, and this ability has been there since before you were born into this lifetime. It will never leave you because it is your birthright as a child of God. So always trust in yourself, trust in your intuition, and you will know who this person truly is when you encounter your spiritual teacher in this lifetime.
Does it feel light, golden, happy and joyful?
Is it easy to understand or are you confused and let yourself be manipulated into thinking that you are not smart enough to understand this and you must read it ten times more?
There was a time when I doubted my English skills… And then I realized, I was listening to a bunch of non-sense from people who loved hearing themselves talk.
And so I found out that part of my role was to simplify and translate higher teachings and concepts into a language that is simple, easy, fun, and accessible to most people on Earth.
Ascension is not meant to be difficult. It’s about realizing that your innocence, joy, and love are your keys to a new golden reality, here and now, while doing the required work playfully.
We love you dearly.
We are here with you.
We are your family of light.
