Podcast #60: Dangerous Devotion

In this episode we explore the various toxic forms of worship that can take your power away from you, and how to protect yourself from them. These unbalanced relationships can include cults, religions, celebrities, and possibly even some of your friends and romantic partners. Once we are conscious of the dangers they present, we can take our power back and live authentic lives in total connection with Pure Source.

With my cohost Crystal Fambrini, we discuss what worship really means and why I don’t like it when people say they worship me or anyone else. We talk about different types of cults and religions, and the seductive power of cult leaders, religious icons and gurus. I explain why so many people of all ages have been controlled by these forces, as well as how to identify if you are under their influence and get out of that situation and reconnect with who you really are. 

I address the worship of celebrities, politicians and sex, and the spiritual problems that this presents especially with the power of social media behind them. I emphasize the importance of not giving your identity and power away to any external person or organization, so that you can live your life from a genuine empowered space.

I talk about my experience at my Divine Atrocity event in Denver, Colorado where dark forces actually attempted to stop my seminar on the dangers of religious devotion. I explain how I pushed past them despite several major obstacles, and the value you can get by facing any force oppressing you in a similar way. 

Crystal and I discuss how you can be religious or spiritual without giving away control of your life, and what it takes to get to that space and stay there. I remind you of your divine nature, and how you never need to look outside of yourself to feel complete. You always have everything you need within you. 

In the customized Medihealing, a powerful meditation and healing in one,  I’ll help you examine your relationships to find those where you may have given your power away. Armed with this awareness, you can change or remove these connections and live your life from a place of empowerment, strength and confidence.
