As you go through your spiritual journey, you must learn to control the toxicity that you allow in your life. You must understand that it may force you to change the outside factors that affect you within. This journey is about becoming better in all aspects of life. What you put into yourself is what you get out. Everything is a seed, but you must understand what you are planting to know what will grow. If you plant seeds of abundance, you will see abundance as a result. But if you plant self-limiting beliefs, then it is guaranteed to manifest. You are the creator of your reality, and you are in control of what goes in. Four aspects of your life are affected and must be intentionally protected while on this journey.
Vices are anything that you do to escape from life. It is not wrong to enjoy participating in activities that provide you liberation, but you mustn’t become dependent on those activities. Dependence implies that you are not in control. If you lose power, you cannot be intentional.
Everyone has a vice, and no one has the right to judge you for the vice of your choice. Also, understand that sometimes people’s judgment is a direct result of subconscious beliefs about the situation yourself. You are allowed to enjoy life but enjoy things in moderation. You must keep your control because that is how you elevate. Most people feel the need to overindulge because they are trying to numb out, avoid healing, or are programmed to think it is normal.
The truth is that some vices can be deadly and harmful to your well being and the well being of those around you. I encourage you to try to see if there is any way that you can try to substitute a deadly vice for one less harmful. Try to set limits on how much you indulge in a particular vice. If you can’t put limits, ask for support. Vices need quality control because we need to dedicate time to focus on the things you want to manifest. For example, when you overindulge in drugs or alcohol, it takes you away from your focus. Your spiritual and personal growth takes a toll because you need recovery time.
Warning, what you think about you bring about, this includes the conversations you have. I hear so many people talk about how they want a good relationship; then I hear people having “Amen” conversations. These conversations usually have phrases like “all men do _________” or “all women are ______________”. The truth is that all women and men in your reality are a “certain” way because you can only attract who you are or what you believe.
Try to remove yourself from conversations that discuss the opposite of what you would like to experience in life. You can have anything you want if you change your mind, and you once you’ve changed your mind, you have to stay out of those kinds of conversations. Toxic conversations will create a disconnect between what you may want to manifest and what is actually manifested. Having intense conversations magnetizes your trajectory because of all the passion and energy you put into it. Your words command action, so you must be healthy and intentional about your conversations.
Music, Social Media, and Television Programming
We all have favorite shows, artists, and social applications, but take caution in letting those things consume your time and consume your energy. Even though we may understand that these platforms are for entertainment, they greatly influence our manifestation. We create from our mind, and the main goal of these industries is to maximize engagement.
I don’t know if you have ever been listening to music or heard a story that really captivated you, and then for some strange reason, that situation was apart of your reality. You might have responded like, “ I was just watching a show, and they were talking about ________” or “I saw a lot of people posting that same thing earlier today.” It has appeared in your real life because you created space in your mind for it to manifest. I challenge you for every hour you spend engaged in programming, you spend another hour programming yourself with the things you want and desire. All programming is not toxic, but it leaves room for you to be trained the way the content creator wants. You must remember that you are the creator of your reality, and you must have the power to dictate your reality. If you are always tapped in and engaged outside of yourself, self cannot elevate.
If you find that you are over engaged and your manifestations are suffering, it may be an excellent time to disconnect. Try a weekend fast from television, social media, or music with words. The fast allows you to stop getting random downloads from things that are not beneficial to your ascension.
It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to have a healthy diet. Food, water, and herbs are to provide nutrition and fuel that is necessary for living. A strong culture has been created around living to eat instead of eating to live. So many toxins are sold to us, especially in America. It is sad to think that even what they say is “healthy” is really trash. It can be frustrating and overwhelming at times if you are trying to do better. It can also be challenging to exist socially because of the heavy marketing of alcohol and processed foods.
I am not casting judgment because I, too, live in this world, and I am human. I just want to bring awareness that diet is a habit just like everything else you consistently do in your life. The goal is to enjoy life, enjoy the people around you, but ultimately grow thyself. Try just to make small changes, and you will start to notice significant results. Remember, a healthy diet is good for the body, brain, and your frequencies to create. To maximize the law of attraction, you cannot be operating in a low vibration. Improve your diet, raise your frequency.
Toxins exist in all aspects of life, and we can’t escape them all, but we can make an active decision to remove or limit them as much as possible. It is also understandable that some toxic activities provide us with experiences that we have come to treasure forever. They also have provided us with life lessons, created life long relationships, and unique opportunities that may not have manifested otherwise. A lot of that has to do with the fact that we allowed ourselves to be free while participating in those activities and removing resistance from our energy. We cannot create what we truly desire with resistance, but we can’t maintain what we truly desire with toxicity. So I challenge you to find healthy activities to partake in so that when you receive what you want, you are able to maintain it.
