I listened to a webinar recently hosted by the awesome-beyond-words Jeneth and she talked about a really simple concept. Truth = lightness, Untruth/Gremlin = heaviness.
As you start to heal, cleanse and wake up to your truth, you will notice negative voices/thoughts coming up. If you tell yourself that’s not true, or beat it or your choice of statements of repudiation, if you feel a negative comeback or reaction or a doubling down, so to speak, that’s more than likely a falsehood/gremlin coming from your ego that doesn’t want to heal, never mind change.
However, if the response back feels calm and soothing or just plain is calm and soothing, chances are high that’s spirit guiding you.
