I just want to talk about something that is immensely concerning to me: the “spiritual” Instagram universe.
I use spiritual loosely– it’s falsely spiritual. It guises itself as being spiritual when it is really ego-based which is the opposite of enlightenment and sacredness.
Rather than being a gathering place for like-minded people to share ethereal beauty, it is an on-going performance piece and a pit of lies, under a mask of being “one with the earth” or “lover of all things spiritual” etc. All I see in my newsfeed and from so many people that I follow that seem to have these hippie/gypsy/boho/witch-y accounts are “FOLLOW FOR FOLLOW!” and “SHOUT OUT TO 100K!”, posting the photos of others without credit, and posting photos of other IG users with pretend compassion just so they do the same and increase their follower count to the next thousand… where is the spirituality in this? What a joke! What an absolute joke!
Feeding the Ego is the most earthly thing a person can do. Nothing keeps you more grounded to these low energies, no matter how many posts you have afterwards that state how much you love the higher frequencies.
It is all a game. It is all a show. A circus act. There is nothing authentic about many of the experiences of spirituality on Instagram.
Obviously, there are a few exceptions to this rule, but if you’re feeding this perpetual black hole of false sacredness, then prepare to live with the karma that follows. Ten thousand followers won’t help raise up a heavy soul. Ten thousand followers won’t authenticate your spiritual experience. This is not the kind of spirituality we want to feed to people just finding their ground. This is the easiest way to get lost in falsehood and remain dissatisfied when a real spiritual life is the most gratifying experience of all.
Stop clowning around and focus on the spirit, not the ego.
Are you finding a disconnect between the spiritual lifestyles displayed through Instagram and other social media? Do you struggle with this yourself? Share in the comments. We are in this together.
With great concern for the spiritual future,
