Have you ever had someone think you were crazy?
It’s a risk that all of us spiritual people run simply by being ourselves. Being OK being unusual and never wanting (or needing) to follow the crowd isn’t exactly a formula for being understood. But in my eyes, and I’m guessing for you reading this too: that’s really not what we’re trying to achieve.
If you’ve gone through a spiritual awakening or been spiritual since childhood, you’ve probably been seen as strange by others at some point. Or worse – stupid…
I’ve noticed a trend on Instagram recently where people send me messages trying to use spirituality as a weapon. One man had created an Instagram account and reposted a ton of spiritual memes all at once to make his page look legitimate, and then asked me (out of the blue) to send him $1000. With his full bank account details and everything!
I also get loads of messages from network marketers, some of whom try to claim that it was “fate” that they found my page while in keen pursuit of their own agenda. From my eyes – it’s definitely not fate if I don’t want it, haven’t asked for it, and it’s not in service of my life purpose as a spiritual messenger.
This week has really made me wonder, don’t they know?
I’m spiritual, not stupid…
I’m really interested to know if you’ve ever encountered this too.
Perhaps someone at a dinner party thinking you’re naive because you truly believe that anything is possible. Or maybe someone looking at you like you’re deluded because you talk in terms of energy. It seems like while the East were busy laying down their rich spiritual traditions, we never got the memo in the West.
However, I do believe that change is possible and that the world is progressing. As the internet connects us and wakes more people up, we can stand together in an ever stronger and ever larger spiritual community. A community where you don’t need to fit in and where you can come exactly as your soul shines.
If you ever feel alone, ridiculed or taken advantage of for being spiritual, remember that you are different because you’re meant to move the world forward in your own unique way. You are here for a purpose and a reason – your spiritual awakening has happened to prepare you for that.
It’s time to take pride in your sensitive spiritual nature as a point of difference rather than a symptom of delusion.
If people try to take advantage of you for it, then that’s on them and never on you. When they aren’t ready for something, they’ll never know what to do with it. Stand firm in your spirituality and always use it for the greater good it’s intended for.
You are spiritual – and never stupid ❤️
