Empaths Avoid This Spiritual Advice, It Can Kill You! - Here Is a New Set of Guidelines for You<br />
Traditional spiritual teachings can often be harmful and lead to self-destruction for empaths, codependent individuals, and highly sensitive people if not balanced. Learn to prioritize your well-being, listen to your intuition, set boundaries, surround yourself with loving support, and heal past traumas. Embrace your authentic self and show your light and power, speaking up and sharing your story. This video provides a refreshing and empowering perspective on personal growth and fulfilment, important life hacks, spiritual advice and self-development rules for empaths, introverts, highly sensitive persons ( HSP) and co-dependants to be free and strong, confident, peaceful and happy. Normal, so-called spiritual advice from the world's main religions and new-age is often bad for us, even lethal.  These “commandments” or guidelines are much better to live by for empaths, codependent and highly sensitive persons (HSP).

In the realm of spiritual traditions and modern teachings, paths laid out for liberation and grace often seem ill-suited for empaths, codependents, and highly sensitive individuals. What’s prescribed as a journey toward selflessness and generosity can, paradoxically, become a restrictive experience for those naturally inclined to prioritize the well-being of others over their own.

The Spiritual Conundrum for Empaths

The Disconnect Between Spiritual Teachings and Empath Needs

While the advice to be more selfless and generous is beneficial for many, empaths often find themselves overwhelmed by such directives, exacerbating their struggles with maintaining personal boundaries and self-care.

Religious and New Age Challenges

Religious edicts to turn the other cheek and New Age imperatives to manifest one’s reality can be particularly perilous for empaths in harmful situations, potentially leading to further victimization and emotional distress.

Bad Advice for Toxic Relationships

For those entangled in abusive dynamics, adhering to spiritual guidance advocating passivity and forgiveness without critical discernment can be damaging, even life-threatening.

The Peril of New Age Philosophies for Empaths

New Age ideologies that emphasize personal responsibility for one’s circumstances can unintentionally victim-blame and undermine the experiences of those facing manipulation or abuse by narcissistic individuals. If you live in a violent relationship… listening to this could kill you. It could also prevent you from reporting a rape and asking for help.

Common advice that is dangerous for Empaths

Spiritual Advice That Can Kill

Religion preach:

    • To turn the other cheek
    • Not to stand up for myself
    • That silence is a virtue
    • To love and be kind to people who are mean to me and hurt me
    • To always be humble, generous, and take care of others’ needs before my own.

    New age teachings tell us:

      • “I am responsible for my own life”
      • “I create my own reality”
      • “I have attracted this person/this situation”
      • “It’s up to me to change my thoughts and feelings, so I can change my life for the better”
      • “If I just focus on the positive things and remain optimistic, he/she will be nice, calm down, and treat me with respect.”
      • “If I talk about negative things, I will just attract more negative people/situations”
      • “I probably have some karma left from a previous life that I need to work on”
      • “The people who treat me the worst are my best
      • teachers”
      • “I just need to let go and accept what is”
      • “Other people’s behavior towards me is just a mirror of something within me”

      Common Social Advice:

        • “Don’t stand out”
        • “Don’t think you are special”
        • “Stay out of this”
        • “Speaking is silver, but silence is golden”
        • “Love always starts with a fight”
        • “Don’t make a scene”
        • “Don’t challenge fate”
        • “You get what you deserve”
        • “You reap what you sow”
