For those awakening divine humans

Spirituality Is So Yesterday


Art by Maria Chambers

Recently someone said to me that they have found a highly evolved spiritual community of millennial empaths on Instagram.  And that WordPress has ‘lost its vibe’  I found the comment quite revealing.

I know the comment was designed to insult me, but it got me thinking that where I am, where many of us are in our embodied enlightenment is actually not even spiritual anymore.  For me, the spiritual community feels passé.  The one she described is more of what I consider the new age community: Tarot cards, crystals, psychics, and a lot of feel-good catch phrases.  I call it the honeymoon stage of enlightenment.

Many of us went through that stage, and it’s a totally appropriate stepping stone for the awakening process.  We hung out at the shallow end of the pool but knew we were going to have to dive into the deep end eventually.

She mentioned there were empaths in that community.  Again, there is no judgment, but empathy does not fare well in our awakening.  In fact, it’s gotta go entirely.  Fortunately it’s on the way out.  We can’t drag old, outdated tools, one of which is empathy, into our enlightenment.

Many of us know that holding and processing energies for others, and for mass consciousness no longer applies to us.  Nor do things like prayers for world peace.  We are beginning to understand that not everyone is ready for or wants peace.

We are not interested in pushing our personal agenda on anyone.  Whether it’s peace, or healing. Some people are zealots in their belief that others should be at a certain place in their development, a place they determine for them.

So, rather than empathy, which is feeling others’ pain, we have compassion for others, which is a tool of the new consciousness.  It is the acceptance of where others are, and allowing them to continue on their own path.  Even if it is war.

After a point, we are not so interested in causes, or in being activists.  We find political news more often just a distraction, and a reflection of a patriarchy doubling down in fear of losing its power.  We are not so triggered anymore by that outside world.

We essentially are detaching from humanity, but in a healthy way.

But to get here, we had to go through the underbelly of ascension.  We had to face our darkest and deepest fears, which often brought us to our knees.  It shook us to our core and crumbled our very foundation.  But we came out the other side realizing that those fears are manufactured by a mind that has been trying to stay in control.

So those in that spiritual community will eventually have to go through their own life-altering dark night of the soul.  Because if they focus only on the light, they will continue to project their shadow outward.

If they are not in touch with their own anger, and their own sadness, their own self-judgment, they will continue to see it only in others.

Empathy, by the way, is being replaced with sensuality.  With having more human and soul sensual experiences with music, art, nature, food, our environment and the body.  We become highly sensitive, but eventually no longer take on others’ emotions or issues.

We become self-directed, not outer-directed.

So I am grateful for the attempt at an insult because it helped me to realize that I am really not part of any spiritual community.  I am a sovereign being who is experiencing the integration of her divinity and her human self.  Full stop.


When I publish my posts I often use spirituality as a tag because there isn’t much yet to replace the word.  Embodied enlightenment, ascension, awakening, consciousness, soul, divinity, are all good tags, too. But spirituality tends to encompass religion and the new age so it is not perfect.

But the words are not as important as the energies.  As the heart and soul.  And, it doesn’t matter where we publish or share our soul’s expressions because whoever needs to see those creations will find them.

Because I have nurtured this blog now for a decade, and it has brought me so much joy, google has rewarded me with a significantly high Alexa ranking without having to figure any of that out by myself.

The beauty of the internet is things can go viral.  Your messages can spread throughout the world, by other people, in all languages.  Many of my posts have been reblogged and translated into a variety of languages.  There are no limits.  In the good old days you had to put up expensive billboards, run ads, find publishers, and those reached a limited number of people.

In a way the World Wide Web puts everyone on equal footing.  You can become visible even among millions of other domains.

Your only job is to show up, be creative and feel passionate about your creations.

So, spirituality.  There is nothing wrong with the word.  But for those of us who are becoming sovereign masters of our own domain, it is kind of yesterday.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Almost a decade later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Laughing a bit at this. “I am a sovereign being who is experiencing the integration of her divinity and her human self. Full stop.”

    I like to say I’m a Sovereign LoveBean. heehee

    I am seriously pondering your words about being an Empath…….I have been one my whole life and it has fucking ruled me or I should say, I let it rule me……when I finally figured out what the fuck was going on. I used to think I was such a nutcase. I LOVE the idea of letting it go…..I think I have gotten there a bit to the extent that I do feel HUGE compassion for all.

    So, Maybe I have been letting it go and not exactly realizing it. I just find myself not drawn to certain people or situations and so I just don’t go there. Or, if I get caught up in something that I used to do, I get exhausted and realize that is 3D shit and I don’t need to do that anymore. “We can’t drag old, outdated tools, one of which is empathy, into our enlightenment.”

    I am certainly suspicious of anyone who tells you that you MUST be or think a certain way. ha! No Thank YOU!

    So, loving this new shift……and the word spirituality has been so loaded and just doesn’t work….and it tends to lump all into some kind of woo-woo category, eh? So yesterday. Ha! Taht made me laugh.

    So, as one Sovereign (LoveBean) to another Sovereign (Master)…..thanks, dear Sistar!

    love you!

    • I like your term, ‘loaded’ in reference to the word, Spirituality. And, I agree, we are letting go of being the empaths without even realizing it. Like you say, just not participating with certain things or certain people because it’s an energy drain.

      And I am sure as we raise our vibration more and more we won’t be as impacted by any of the 3D energies so much at all.

      But meanwhile it does seem to take a bit more of Our discernment to not allow feeding from others and even from our own mind and its tricks to keep us engaged in its nonsense,

      Love you, siSTAR!

  2. In defense of the community of enlightened people that post positive things, we are in touch with our shadow selves. We are past, or some are going through, their negative karma and have faced their fears of the self. Compassionate empathy is also a concept. Good read, I felt it was a bit biased and not very compassionate for people who are genuinely expressing themselves on another platform or in a different way. We are all one.

    • I apologize for lumping in everybody in the New Age community like that. 

      I guess I’m a bit hard on some of the New Age community because I’ve been there myself. And admittedly as a seasoned Ascension pioneer, I am guilty as charged. I lose patience with a lot of the BS, even if it’s well-intentioned.

      And, of course there is enough BS to go around even in other aspects of the so-called spiritual community.

      I’m still dealing with my own BS. I think we all are. And, it is wonderful to have compassion for that part of ourselves and it’s necessary. But it’s not always practically happening.

      I’ve discovered that becoming more of my authentic self comes with inpatience. I’ve discovered that becoming more my soul doesn’t necessarily mean I’m always understanding and empathetic.

      It means sometimes, that I am an intolerable son of a bitch! It’s one of the fascinating discoveries about embodied enlightenment.

      Kind of a rude awakening for those who really thought that becoming more conscious meant being more understanding, and always compassionate. 

      Not at all.

      And, I am confident that the younger ones like yourself have come in this lifetime with a beautiful light and less baggage to deal with. This is a good thing. 💜
