Have you noticed a change in your relationships with other people lately?  Do you, at times, feel alone in your beliefs?   Have you lost contact with any long time friends recently?  You are not alone!

Have you noticed a change in your relationships with other people lately?  Is it sometimes difficult or awkward to talk to others about spiritual topics?  Do you, at times, feel alone in your beliefs?   Have you lost contact with any long time friends recently?  You are not alone!


I'm fortunate to have a lot of Facebook friends who post similar types of links. Too many times, I see a lot of people who talk the talk but are afraid to walk the walk, due to being ridiculed for their thoughts and posts (GROUPTHINK). I've lost some longtime friends because of this but have made many, many new ones. Once the ego is released, you no longer worry about conformity and peer pressure.


Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that structures various belief systems within a group of people while discouraging individual creativity and independent thinking.  Even within a group of individuals who are spiritually awakened, you will find groupthink. 


If you look at the recorded history of mankind, you’ll find that this history is merely someone’s interpretation of a landmark event or evolutionary process, backed by eyewitness testimonial, scientific data, video or faith.  The actual truth may be hidden or distorted for many reasons, but mostly for control and power.  Look no further than the origins of mankind and you’ll find a plethora of creation myths from all cultures with varying dates of our existence.  Who’s right? 


Can you talk to your friends about the universe?  Do they know what a stargate or chakra is?  Are they willing to talk about ascension or spiritual enlightenment?  


When you talk to people about the creation myth, they tend to remain inside the box with a belief system that supports religion’s story of creation, which dates mankind back to 4000 B.C.  If you raise questions about our true origins, it tends to separate people and relationships between those who think outside the box versus those who think inside the box.  When these topics arise within relationships, they often create dissention.  It’s hard for anyone to admit they’ve been deceived for so long and even more difficult to admit they were possibly wrong in their assumptions. 


This is a prime example of how our educational systems keep us locked inside the box without questioning anything about what we’ve been taught.  Those who remain inside the box are afraid of what others might think if they venture outside the box, so they remain complacent and subservient while conforming to what society dictates rather than relying on their own discernment and judgment.  People could live their entire lives pretending to be what society expects them to be and not even know it!


From an ego perspective, our thoughts are basically cultivated by what we’ve learned from our family, friends, educational systems and religious beliefs, but what have we truly been taught?  What can we say about anything that wasn’t regurgitated to us by someone else?   


As evidenced by past life regressions, our previous lives and soul history remain dormant in our cellular DNA and can be recalled through our subconscious minds through hypnotherapy.   Within your cellular DNA, you actually remember being back with the Source along with all of the things you wanted to accomplish during this incarnation, as well as all of the challenges you wanted to overcome and all of the people who would lead you to where you are.  This includes the people that have come and gone from our lives.


Sometimes, we project to be someone that we expect others to see in us.  In psychology, this is referred to as the shadow self, where we project an identity that conforms to how other people may perceive us versus being true to who we really are. Some people may find out that they never knew who they were because they lived their lives through the expectations of how others will perceive them. 


Those who have begun their spiritual journeys may also be confronting these issues, which initially creates cognitive dissonance.  Cognitive dissonance occurs when you get an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously.  This is the transition period that many of us have gone through, where our beliefs have changed, yet we’re unsure about relating these new ideas to our friends and family, due to fear or rejection.  


As our spiritual journeys continue, we become more comfortable within our own beliefs and less concerned about how our friends and family view this awakening.  This is when the ego becomes separated from the self and fear is dissolved by love.  At this juncture, we begin to talk to acquaintances, as well as friends and family, about spiritual and metaphysical topics, with less regard about what they might think of us or how we may be perceived by others.


In time, spirituality will be the predominant frame of mind and it’s likely that those who have strayed from us will be the first in line to ask for help in adjusting to the new paradigm.


Remember this:  You are not alone!  Those who truly love you will stand by you, no matter what.  Those people who are no longer part of our lives have already played their role in helping us find out who we truly are.  Sometimes, it takes polarity to be able to differentiate who we are and where we're going.  This is where the unawakened help immensely, by providing that contrast which allows us to see the differences.


Envision each awakened person across the planet holding a candle.  While your individual candle may not seem like a lot of light, it greatly contributes to making the world FULL of light and keeps us connected, no matter how far apart we may be.  While it may be painful to lose some dear friends, think about what they have brought to your life and why.


Chances are, you’ll end a few old relationships with people who were, at one time, very close to you, only to create new relationships with like-minded people.  Forgive yourself, as well as your friends, if you feel badly about this.  They came into your life for a reason a season or a lifetime:


Reason, Season, or Lifetime


People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.


When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.


Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.


Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

  • The comments are so true. My friends rarely reply to anything  I say. Iknow Ihave to move on. Cognitave  dissonance could describe the journey Iam travelling.  My daughter denounced as a witch but guess what    with all the flak I  have met in my life has changed me into a better person and much stronger. Lots of Love Yvonne
  • Hi karma,


    Thank you for this reminder, and yet very true. I have a few friend relationships that have been dissolving more and more as the year passes. It's just how it is, as I know it's happening, and now accepted it and detached from it.


    Much Love



  • I think their awakening, or the lack of it in some cases, has also cost me some friends, I guess that's just what's happening right now.  

    I know that many of us feel isolated right now, we are all going through so many changes :)

  • Ienjoyed everything I read . Its very difficult to relate to others at a deep level once you reach a certain level. Ilive at the hervey Bay Ihave been here 12 months and  Ispend most of my time alone. Iam not interested in soapies and those types of things. Sometimes its uncomfortable  like when a friend offers you a drink of flouridated water and some Gmo melon and we say no not because we are fanatics but because we are informed. Its jolly hard. Afew years ago , Iwas going to church with this strict religous woman. Isuggested that that there my be intelligent life in the universe. She was horrified with my statement. Her eyes bulged in outrage. She said, "Did Jesus baptise in the name of the   Father Son and other Planets. Horror Horror.. Friends will come and go. We have to accept that as a part of our journey. Even my Reiki friends Icant get into a significant chat. You see the eyes wander or Iknow Ihave drawn another blank and everthing goes quiet. Still tomorrow is another day and we just might find that special friend who will listen openly. All my Love yvonne
  • Really like this, I feel this is where I am at with a lot of relationships right now and some have been hard to accept when I figure out why a person has come into my life, some I am still figuring this out. Thanks for the post, it helps me understand better. Blessings to you!

  • This is just so true how people come in and out of your life at different times.  Thank you for posting : )

    My twin sister is the only one I can talk to.  We both "woke up" at the same time though through different means.  I'm almost certain a condition for me coming here was only if we came together, hehe, now I understand why. 

  • Thank you for posting Karma's Helper!  I love you!  I have just lost a friend that I had already lost but she came around long enough to hear about what I am since she last knew me...in truth I didn't care for her energy and am relieved she stays away...I am very sensitive and only want to enjoy myself with others that know how to enjoy their self.  However I actually am blessed, my mom, one of three sisters, my dad, are all open to the idea of caring space neighbors,   I am so happy to have this site to go to...the people here contribute daily..there's always something new!  I love it!  I love all of you here!
  • thank you for the posting.

    i too feel alone in the discovery of the space families do exist. i have allways enjoyed reading psychogly, socialogy, human behalvior for many years now it all started when i got hooked in jr.high in the 1960s. boy it was fun for a while the hippie scene, then social change always seems to go back to the term i use "doggie dog life".

    i still feel mankind has changed alot in terms of more heart and soul, at least many of us . i still can not talk about e.t. topics, even with solid proof for i lose freinds and co-workers respect (groupthink mob feeling of belonging). people are for the most part predictable in how they keep thier social struture intact.

    i can't wait for the space families to introduce themsleves to the masses, what a joy  these days will be for all of mankind.

    blessing to all of us.

  • I find it hard to relate to anyone outside anymore, and their are only a few here too. Even if we do relate,  we dont communicate much, I dont bother with "friends", I just look after my little family, and my brothers or Dad might pop in once or twice a year to say hi. But I dont really bother. I have one female friend, who is good company, but doesnt believe in ANYTHING. So I dont bother talking to anyone about said things anymore off of AC. Out of 400 FB friends, only 1 is open to these things. On the greater demographic, when shit does hit the fan... thats not many people in the know...ya know!!

    FYI....I AM all alone with you.  My mother sent a doctor to my house....my sister no longer will talks to me.... my brother is a red-neck...and my Dad looks at me as though I'm nuts.....there is NO conversation other than me, telling them to focus on "their" life and let me do the same.  I never just come out and say,"Hey....you know what?"....i wait.....until asked....like as in, " Hey there....how are you....what have you been up to?".....once i hear this question....i jump into action.....lol....lol....after all...."they" asked.....not the other way around......if you try this method....you will notice IMMEDIATELY that the only response people are looking for, is one that "fits" into "thier" daily routine....a routine that I AM standing infront of.....unwaivering....ALWAYS.  RedDragonWarrior said it best here.....  once the s**t hits the fan.....guess who's going to be there?






    Just sit back knowing that all your hardwork ( reading )....all your dedication....  all your loneliness in these times ......all of it......is WHY you are here. 


    You made it to the finish line.......now extend ONE hand back over "that" line and wait for the strugglers to come.....for they will.......oh will they ever.

I’m not really into biblical stories, unless it starts to make sense.

Let me guess: the ‘angel’ who impregnated the mother of Jesus was actually a Jewish priest with fixed DNA?"
