Yes!!! First, cheers to you for sharing your story and explaining where things went wrong. Anytime we start looking to anyone else to make our life better, we’re in trouble. Spiritual work is about coming home to the god within us all, coming home to ourselves—it’s not some hyped up version of living in high frequency, altho that can be a side effect (at times).

As someone else shared here, spiritual work isn’t easy and often isn’t pretty. But it can be downright magical when we come out on the other end. Or even on the hard journey if we allow it to be.

I’m an Akashic Record reader and energy healer, and thank heavens I didn’t ever get caught up on YouTube during my awakenings. There’s something extra sticky about that platform… Whether it’s my strong BS detector or the fact I was a marketer for 10+ years, the charlatans usually don’t get past me. There’s so much BS! And where I see it the strongest these days is with twin flames. I’ve had sooo many clients come to me believing they’ve met theirs thanks to YouTube and the “experts”, meantime it’s clearly just another toxic relationship.

The bottom line here is that we’ve got to learn how to be discerning, intentionally discerning in this day and time. There’s far too much information out there, far too many people saying they know it all, and far too many places to find it. If we don’t discern for ourselves then we’ll easily get taken advantage of. It’s something I always encourage my podcast community and clients to do, and I teach what I know so others can empower themselves instead of leaning on me. That’s the last thing I want!

But personally, I can’t hate the people who do it. Simply because they act as a beautiful reminder that falling into those footsteps can happen to anyone, since I believe most started with good intentions. And also, because if I do get burned, it’s a beautiful lesson to come back home and reconnect with MY wisdom.

There are a lot of amazing spiritual practitioners out there, but it will take discernment to find them.

I’m glad you found your path and I’m even happier you shared this story. I know it will help others ♥️🙏🏽
