  1. Thank you for everything you said I’ve been dealing with a lot the last 2 years, what I’m about to say is not for sympathy, my son committed suicide and I found him, that was the beginning of 2020, actually Jan. 2 to be exact, then I left my husband of 35yrs. Which would have happened anyways. Then later that year two of my best friends passed away 2 weeks apart. I think I have done all five on your don’t list. So thank you for sharing this video it means a lot. Sending love to everyone

    1. Diana, blessings to you on your journey. No one can ever fully understand the pain of another.. but we can stand strong and be here for each other πŸ™‚ Im glad you are here with us πŸ™‚ Sending you love – Mike

      1. I agree with all you said! Life is a revolving door it goes right back from where it started at some point. This is why I stay away from other’s now. The end of the rainbow. Their is no pot of gold. Just refraction of light through water vapors. What really hurts is when something happens to you altering you physically, and mentally comes after it. Some thing’s get changed, and will never be the same. Some thing’s remain the same. But that has a lot to do with what we are referring to. I hold on now just more cautiously. Weather we love other’s or not doesn’t mean they are going to love you back, trust me I know.

        1. love this Muriel πŸ™‚ this is one of my favorite quotes… “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” the only thing that really changes is the happiness we have for the chore πŸ™‚

          1. Thank for the reference! At a point of it seemed like no return, in may I started to cut and stack wood at the cabin, a storm took down 32trees. Everyday I got up and cut for 3to4hours and took breaks sitting by the lake , stareing into the water then stacking up each days work , I slept great and was refreshed to begin again the next day! After 4months of this I have come to love my existence here! And I look to myself for creating my own joy.

          2. so reminiscent of the old phrase… “Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water”. We truly find ourselves in all activity when we are ready. Glad you are with us Debra πŸ™‚ – Mike

    2. Diana,

      I am so sorry for your losses. That is a tremendous amount of trauma to deal with. I wish you tons of healing, love, and light. These past 2 years have been pretty hard for myself. Lots of tower moments that were unexpected. I never would’ve pictured my life turning out the way it has. Those changes, along with what I suspect to be mental illness, have left me isolated. Hang in there, dear. I really am proud to see you here. ?

    3. Thank you for sharing that part of your life with us, Diana. I went through a period of loss myself, and it just kept me down and out. I know that the people I lost, one to suicide, one to cancer within 3 days apart would never want to see me this way. This was after a failed suicide attempt on my part. I was already on the verge of caregiver breakdown with my mother when I found out my father had stage 4 colorectal cancer. Not until the cancer did any of it make sense to me. the 200 hr Yoga Teacher certificate. The meditating, almost made my neuro divergence worse. Such a long spiritual path that seems to keep happening. Continuous change. Taking things personally when I know first hand myself (I have MS) that these things I am taking personally are because I never valued who I am. So often it’s just a reaction to my initial abusers that NEED me more than I NEED them. I had to choose, caregiver or start anew. I have healed but it has always dissipated. Now my entire life at 37 years old has made me into a caregiver for the people who in essence didn’t prepare me the best they could for the world. I always wanted children, and now I am mothering my parents. I never had an idea I was this strong. It makes me feel so silly to have doubted myself and subject myself to the idea that there are people that do cause intentional harm. No pity here, I hate that feeling myself. Pity is temporary. Love is forever. Hugs, Diana. Keep going <3

  2. Thank you for your timely message about not judging people. My grandchildren rarely make any contact. They’re busy with their own lives. I understand that but My husband and I feel neglected, angry, hurt and lonely. We are in our eighties and this pandemic has left us vulnerable. We had toyed with the idea of cutting them out of our lives. The think was that if we had no expectations from them then we could move on and not be hurt. When it came to I just couldn’t do that. I decided to put our mixed emotions in the lap of the Lord and see what happens.

    1. oh my dear Maureen.. I so understand and appreciate your words and your journey. Its so hard when we have that expectation and it’s not met. I always come back to “what if I simply honored them on their own journey and loved them exactly where they are”… every single time I do this, the person who I no longer want to be anything different then their amazing beauty, becomes more than I had ever hoped for, but because they want to , for themselves.. not because I wanted them to. Its amazing, beautiful and divine. There is much we can learn by walking the path that was so clearly shown to us. You and your husband are wonderful to place this in the hands of the lord and to do so without judgement and to always speak to your loved ones as though they were first time guests in your heart πŸ™‚ sending you love Maureen – Mike

  3. Thank you so much for your wisdom. I was meant to find you on my journey, regardless of the trauma it took or not. Much love- Marisa Xx

    1. Im grateful for you Marisa πŸ™‚ Our trauma is our greatest gift, just so hard to see at the time πŸ™‚ im so elated you are with us now and hope to see you posting in the FB group. love – Mike

  4. Diana you are super hero strong. I to had similar incidents happen. In the span of three days. And it was a nightmare. And I don’t wish that on anyone not even my worst enemy. And you my dear just confirmed that I am not alone. I thought I was the only one going through the most saddest times anyone can ever have. I am so proud that your still together please stay strong your a Beautiful person. Sending love and light your way….olav

  5. I want to say Hello to All and I’m Happy to feel that everyone is looking, searching, and going deeper to… Understand what each of us feels and for myself something that has been in, around, on the side but always there and is becoming more yes More, prevalent, And impossible not to feel…Something has been building (?) For quite sometime now…and all of you are going through my own filtering system, knew you were there but it’s still an awakening that will take its own time for me to get a better grip…So that’s what I’m doing at the moment, I have no doubt that I will seek,look closer, when that fits a little better… Then it’s time for learning…No always learning, Time for a better understanding. Till then Enjoy…

    1. it is time Dwight and I’m so glad you are here with us πŸ™‚ thanks for sharing and for supporting. It is indeed time to understand and to accept each, as we are πŸ™‚

  6. That should be natural thoughts in every being. GOD is love. Evil unfortunately also exist. Up to each soul to decide what side? I choose GOD for all came to me natural and I couldn’t understand. Thanks for all you wonderfull souls. Now I have vision.

    1. we love you Henry. All things you have said are of course true. I also choose God and Im grateful for you being with us, we need more of our brothers in God to stand up and be counted πŸ™‚ – Mike

  7. Your message of love for self and others, as well as the lesson of letting go ego and judgement, resonate so strongly with me! It is what I need to hear…again and again. Thank you for your gentle and loving guidance!

  8. The pain goes deeper than any disease that could become attached to you. When love is used as a tool to keep you submissive, to confuse your emotions, ther in lies the hurt that devours your very soul. There seems no way to climb out, and you slowly die inside. And yet, you still love the evil that has control of your emotions.

  9. Alot has happened to me and iam still in limbo I was married for 20 years and oh what a mess still trying to figure it out ?

  10. Thank you so much , I’m really at a loss for words ! Amazing message and I’m truly touched . Exactly what I needed to hear , I suddenly feel more connected !

  11. Hi everyone I am Janice there has been is lot of uncertainty as you know what is happening in Life we start to look inward to ourselves what have I done wrong knowing I try to keep our grown up kids close to me there don’t want to spend with you as I feel you never know what could happen around the corner as they have no time for me I know they have the own lives.

  12. I understand the need to forgive and love those who have consistently abused you, I know a majority of abusers were victims themselves, but they make a choice.
    So often I have forgiven and loved family who simply denied my reality and refused to love me. I deeply love my sister, but just recently her mental cruelty and constant knife to the back wounds my heart. I believe I’m still able to love her but for my own healing the toxicity in the relationship isn’t healthy. The main question I’m still debating is in 2017 my daughter was charged with exploitation of an Elderly person and stole over 50k. Others covered this up, yet she was the only one charged. She was able to become my guardian, yes, I was having issues at the time, but she divulged medical records from 1977 which my brother insisted everything I said was imagination. He carried this guilt for all of his life. My daughter knew the truth, yet she also neglected to inform anyone of the family history. I don’t understand how anyone with 3 felonies and lying on their medical application and on psychotic medications wasn’t required to take a background ground. When I was a former PCA I had to be fingerprinted and do a background check. So where does accountability end? I feel all those lost years my voice was never heard as a child and teenager and adult. And as Ward once again I had no rights. Am I wrong for wanting accountability? I do love my daughter but no relationship, court ordered no contact. I had to leave FL in order to earn my rights back.

    1. when the pains are deep, forgiveness can be hard. You are not wrong for seeking accountability (its normal), the real question is.. “will it make you feel better and will it help you to forgive?” I have found that forgiveness is not tied to another’s suffering, it is actually the complete absence of needing retribution for a past transgression.

  13. Am really impressed by this spiritual guidance, and a higher gratitude for every word.i think it’s easy to love than to hate why make it so difficult, brothers and sisters let heal the world together with love ❀️ one love

    1. The attachment to hate is something my mind can understand psychologically, but spiritually and personally, it makes no sense. Love is the only way for me and im glad to have you with us John. – Mike

  14. Thank you so much for this wonderful message. It is helping me at the moment to understand better and to embrace my past while trying to walk a newly found journey and loving who I was whoever I was while creating a better version if me.

    1. love it! and you were before before and now Khey πŸ™‚ eventually, I promise, you will see that it was always perfect and you were always amazing, even when you were not seeing the world the same as you do “now”, whenever that is πŸ™‚ – Mike

  15. Sometimes when things are not going well with you, it make you feel like the entire universe is against you but the moment you get the right information and right people into your life the burden becomes less heavy. I’m very grateful for this opportunity.

    1. yes, this is because our ego WANTS things to be different. There is an amazing book called “Mans Search For Meaning”, I would highly recommend it for you. Things will always go “wrong” in life, but thats purely a reflection of our ego saying that they want it to be like this, instead of that. There’s another book called “The Surrender Experiment”, but for some reason, Victor’s booked called out to me first for you πŸ™‚ sending you love Emmanuel – Mike

  16. I’m having difficulty with dealing with everyone’s emotions. It’s hard for me to go places because I get bombarded with everything from everyone around me. It causes massive panic attacks sometimes to the point of blacking out. Few understand what I’m going through and most avoid at all cost. I really just feel alone. Sometimes that’s not a bad thing but I just want someone to love me as I am.

  17. I received your message, thanks for the previous mistkes reasons. I really have all these inwardly, that you talked about. Other than the one related to the relationship and my talents, it resonated with me, rigt now becouse, I’m making some changes for me… I feel like I have to make them because I know it’s going to be a harmony, but I’m really not 100% sure if this is the only way … and the time slowe me down to see…will go slover.

  18. Hi! thanks for opening my eyes, that I don’t need a guru to do things in my spiritual journey.If I’ be known this early I wouldn’t have spent all the money that I had, thanks a lot, yours truly Thandekile

    1. you are very welcome πŸ™‚ Don’t get me wrong, a TRUE guru will never ask you to follow them and you can get great advice from some amazing people. The point is not to give away your power to another and to know that you are a divine being. πŸ™‚ thanks for being with us! – Mike

  19. In 2007 I was in a bad car accident,missed a curve and went off road through a fence and stop. Broke the t top to my camaro with my head , was unconscious an hour or so .when I awoke I had blood running down my face ,started it back up drove out of there ,on 2 flat tires ,if I would have stayed there I surely have perished . fast forward 2015 .an awakening , it feels like I’ve been unconscious for many years ,unable to speak my mind ,foggy thoughts and unclear head , suddenly I feel great . my memory returns little by little. 2021 I feel I have an intelligent out look again on life but somehow different . at the time I did not know I was changing ,all my prosperity,jobs things I had for sale suddenly stopped. Its as if someone is orchestrated my cash demise ,no promises of any money coming in , could not find employment, its like I was cursed or a convict or something.I didn’t even consider I was being called for a higher purpose , I have learned quite a bit of what I’m going through and I’m not alone . I really appreciate all the astrological advice you can give me as I complete my journey.
    Thank you .

    1. What an amazing story Michael! You are being called for sure. If you are not in the course yet, please email support and they will let you in. I am grateful for your presence and share πŸ™‚ – Mike

  20. Thank you for your words of wisdom. These past 3 years have put a tremendous strain on every relationship in my life. After becoming clean of 25 years of psych drugs, it was a jolt to my body, soul and spirit. Everything I have ever known was a lie. I lost my husband/partner of 27 years, my 2 sons, their spouses, my grandchildren, friends, sister, brother. I felt abandoned in the worse way. It was as if my life never existed after all the love I gave them, the things I did out of love for them. I did my best to be a good wife, mother and friend. This feeling is heart ripping knowing they are all very much alive, but act as if I’m not. I am realizing I am the only one who can bring happiness to my life. I have 2 beautiful dogs who have stood by me during these past years of solitude in which I thank Almighty God. I too spent money for stuff, not much but I am guilty of it. I too gave away a lot of my past as well as sold some of it. For some reason i haven’t sold much, I perceive certain things are meant to remain with me. My relationship with my now ex husband is somewhat good. My sister is starting to talk with me, my sons are somewhat talking with me. I haven’t heard from my 3 eldest grandchildren, their mother and stepfather, but that’s ok. They may come back in my life or they may not. I will always love them either way. I can forgive, I understand I had my part in this as well. Coming off those drugs for all those years was the best thing I could have done for myself even though it destroyed my life for a reason. It’s quite possible I had to face past emotional trauma in which the drugs masked, which I am still doing to this day. I look at it as I chose the easy way out of my pain since I got sober from alcohol 29 years ago. I just switched to psych drugs thinking it was ok. Not a chance! I do feel deceived by the doctors. I feel like I was a guinea pig. Yes, I am angry with them as well as myself, but I am learning to forgive myself slowly. I didn’t know what I was getting into at the time, I just wanted the pain to go away, but in all actually I made it worse. I am VERY GRATEFUL to my higher power for all she has shown me. God has given a new meaning to my life. I love and pray for my family and friends…to all those who suffer. I can and do forgive, forgetting is the hard part which will eventually happen. One day at a time. Thank you God, and thank you again Mike and thank you to all those who commented on your video. They are all words of wisdom as far as I’m concerned.

    1. I have had to watch my mom go through a journey similar. I do know that psych drugs CAN be very helpful in cicrumstance, but like you, I have also seen them do great harm, not only for those who are taking them, but also their families, communities, and the world at large (anyone can easily research their affects on water systems and drinking water and animals). No one can ever know the pain and journey you went through Brenda, I’m just glad you are forgiving. The only person who looses when forgiveness is not present is the person who is holding on to that pain. Surrender it all, let God have it and send love to ALL. And specifically, take actions to send love to that family and your children, even when they wont, no matter what, never stop. You are the example of God for all πŸ™‚ sending you love – Mike

  21. I could feel your authenticity and appreciate the 5 pointers. I’m trying not to feel proud about getting glimpses of grace. But one can hardly not feel good when it happens. and that number 1 had me LOL! Somehow I know we will meet again.

    1. Thanks Lynda, I truly appreciate your words πŸ™‚ Grace is good! Pride for the sake of vanity is all I meant here πŸ™‚ When we surrender and know its all part of the God force, its amazing. sending love – Mike

  22. Wow for the first time in my 71 years I believe that you have nailed the 5 mistakes which all of mankind falls prey to. I pray daily that God keeps me in his hands.

  23. Spreading love is my life goal. I’m highly grateful for this video. I help me understand that just because I found my way to a stronger spiritual journey, doesn’t mean others have. We all need a push. I pray that my new found hope gets spread through me. And my love and light pour out of me for others who had a rough life

    1. you are amazing lee! You are a vessel of love. I always listen to the billy joel song “innocent man” because it is often how I feel. Not that I am innocent, but that we can all be innocent for each other and be there for each other. Sending you love πŸ™‚ – Mike

  24. Thank you for this video. But these are gurus & growth seekers, what about those who claim to be mediums & clairvoyance & intutive abilities etc & after sending all our birth details they email back exactly telling the truth about us as to why it is happening or the exact reason, & ask that we send the money thru Debit/Credit Cards online & they would carry the rituals to the higher Heavens, creatures of light, or various other things that Providence or my personal Gaurdian Angel want them to carry out the rituals for great money, love & relationship. They send us the Talisman to look at it for few seconds & touch it that they in return get our frequencies & vibrations for better results.

    1. thats still giving away your power πŸ™‚ it’s one thing to listen to someone who has some solid advice, it’s another to try to have someone else “do the work” for you. You are connected to the heavens just like every other being here on earth and beyond. Sometimes “we” (a person on their journey) may think we need to believe in another, to end up believing in the true self), but in the end, all answers are within after we can clear the mind and our fears. Love your clarity on this Ruby and sending you love πŸ™‚ – Mike

  25. I have spent quite a bit of money on discovering myself and was just coming to your conclusion of how much is too much. I have no regrets thou, I did learn a lot about myself and what I can do. Would I spend that much again on one β€œGuru”, no.
    I also gave my power away, I know that now and I’m in the process of reclaiming it.
    I don’t tend to judge situations or people. Mostly because I don’t see most differences. What I do β€œsee” or rather feel, is someone’s heart, where they are with their heart. So I don’t really see other things.
    Ego is actually my issue right now. I saw my Dad’s arrogance as a child growing up and vowed I would never be like that. I’ve been so obsessed with not being that, that I’ve lost my self confidence and gave away my
    power so that I could never be arrogant. I realise now that I can be confident and sitting in my own heart centred energy without being arrogant. I wouldn’t say it can never happen but I just need to do everything, from my heart and love.
    I feel for those who have had such a hard time and lost people close to them. Sending you all much healing and love ?
    Many blessings to everyone for 2022 x

    1. wow Tehmina! love this so much!!! you are so blessed for your journey and we are for hearing it πŸ™‚ a great post to start my new year! Much love – Mike

  26. This was so eye-opening for me. Thanks Dude ? I greatly appreciate this in so many ways. I want to learn more about myself and this spiritual awakening I coming upon. I think this information is amazing. ???

  27. Spot on! I love deeply, and if there is a time when I feel unloved, not loving enough, or just unsure I just keep giving it to God. God ALWAYS will put you where you need to be. TY so much ?

  28. Thank you for your inspiration! I often feel so alone, because no one understands what exactly I go through inside each day, even when I try to explain it, it just makes me sound crazy to them. The more I do for others, the more they expect, this is a hard topic for me to personally understand. I want to do what I can, at the same time I don’t want it to feel like an obligation or that I am doing things I do in vein. I feel like others take pleasure in undoing my hard work or even worse, taking credit for the hard work I have done. I am so lost most days, I find it hard to get out of bed. My life if full of resentment and anger all around me, and I feel like I have no voice to be heard. I am losing myself to nothing and my existence feels like a black hole, sucking in the life from the world around me. I don’t want to feel like a problem anymore. I just want to love and be loved in return.

  29. I experienced all 5 things two. I always thought I need so much to learn so I spend many money in courses and books. Sometimes I judge my kids and in next minute I back in my heart and excuse me. But I have done just some of that courses I bought. Haven’t time for all until now. And I love everything in most moments. Thanks for your work. Be blessed

    1. Love that you see the judgement and then come back to the heart πŸ™‚ that is truly where we find ourselves. The gap in the time it takes has become smaller and smaller for me as I practice this πŸ™‚ thanks Fabian – Mike

  30. I very much enjoyed listening to these points that you made! There was a lot of wisdom in everything that you talked about! I feel a bit stuck with being judgemental towards some of the people I have encountered in my life. I suppose it would be good to let go of this judgemental attitude!
    I appreciate the warm way that you have responded to all of these comments!
    Warm regards,

    1. it’s so much easier to release when we realize we are only judging ourselves for our past, our present, or somewhere we have not allowed ourselves to be. There are great lessons for us in that acceptance and love for the other πŸ™‚ sending you love – Mike

  31. I am so sorry that it has taken me awhile to read my emails. What has happened for me and does often it seems to be the right time for me to learn something new. I enjoyed this because you keep it real and relatable, and is a good catch up time for some the things that we have learn’t from yourself or others in out lives. I so liked the Enlightenment saying about going out and chop wood. Kaia Ra did something similar before she set about writing her Book -The Sophia Code.
