You may believe that your cynicism protects you, shields you from ignorance and keeps you from being duped into believing what isn’t true. However cynicism is a very low frequency energy and does not serve you, protect you or enlighten you. Cynicism at its core is fear. Fear is the opposite of love. And love is the essence of this divine universe and what we came here to swim in.
When you view life with cynicism, you’re wearing your ego lens. Its dark filter is revealing shadows while obscuring light. This is a skewed macro view of the world that focuses on shadowy corners while entirely missing the golden light that infiltrates everything.
Cynicism is the natural state of your left-brain logic mind. It only shows you half of the picture and it blocks the essence of what you need to know. The higher truth, that which is essential, comes from your divine illogical intuitive right brain. It defies logic.
It’s the job of your left-brain to filter out everything that lies beyond logic, beyond your five senses, so that you can focus primarily on this physical world to survive, finding food and shelter, and navigating through dense energy.
Yet without your inner guidance, your access to the divine, you‘re completely lost, unable to see the essence of things or remember who you are. Without your divine perspective, which is free of logic, unbridled, in the creative flow, and immersed in sacred knowledge, you quickly become a lost soul.
Cynicism blocks your inner guidance and your access to the right brain. Cynicism does not exist in your divine lens perspective.
Wearing your divine lens, you understand that everything is evolving for your highest good and the good of all souls. From this perspective, your heart knows that each soul, no matter how they appear on the surface, is behaving exactly as well or terribly as their consciousness allows. You realize clearly that you came to this physical world to help shift consciousness, to shine your love and wisdom on all the lost souls and help them evolve.
Your cynicism only hurts you. It protects you from nothing and no one. It shuts your heart down and disconnects you from divine guidance and flawless intuition. It disconnects you from love.
Cynicism in relationships is a deal breaker – a love destroyer. It brings you into a low vibration frequency where love does not exist.
Name it what it truly is: cynicism is fear. Nothing more. Nothing less. When you live in the murky waters of fear, you suffer. You fall far from grace. You swim amongst the sharks. You plummet into the hell realm rather than swimming in the sweet ethers of divine love.
Cynicism does not protect you. To be protected, you need clear access to your divine intuition. Your soul reveals truth to you 24/7. You may be used to shutting this voice out, this divine whisper, but your inner wisdom (which comes from the heart and speaks in the voice of love) is the key to your success and happiness on earth. This wisdom tells you where to take your next step, whom to love, and what career to embrace.
Cynicism attracts lower frequency experiences and less evolved souls. Cynicism attracts empty jobs, meaningless work, and futile effort. Everywhere you look, you see the harshest lessons, the cruelest acts, the unkindest people. And you have now become one of them. You have become what you feared most. And your fearful energy contributes to the darkness.
There are infinitely more awakened and conscious beings living on this planet than non-awakened beings. You are one of these awakening ones, working behind the scenes to shift us into the light – when you’re wearing your Divine Lens.
All lessons are learned in the end. Light trumps the darkness every time.

From my new book: Your Divine Lens
This is from one of my Bridges to Heaven grief workshop attendees in New York who writes for the New York Times. She recently lost her partner, Laura, to cancer. She writes about her healing experience in my class:
Yesterday I went to the ‘Healing Our Grief’ workshop at the Open Center. It was a beautiful sharing experience hosted by Sue Frederick author of Bridges to Heaven. Sue’s husband died age 37 from cancer and her best friend died the same year. These two tragedies transformed her life, reawakened her intuition and her spiritual side and prompted her to quit her job in journalism.
Sue came to understand, she says, that, ‘We take the soul journey of loss with our loved ones for a divine purpose’. It sets us on a path to reinvention and reconnection with spirit. Over the day, the mood in the room turned from sorrow to uplift.
Timidly at first, everyone began to share stories of their departed loved ones reappearing in their lives. Incredibly I was sitting in a Lucie-Laura sandwich; my neighbors were Lucille, Laura and Lore-Donna. Lore-Donna said roses magically grew around her window in time for her birthday after her husband died. Liz, who had just lost both parents, experienced her mother as a beautiful moth that sat by her side and rested in her palm.
These delicate experiences are easy to pick apart or dismiss as fanciful imaginings with our cerebral left brains. But they are the tissue that connects us to our loved ones and the spiritual world.
Once we stop doubting and see them for what they are, they are an amazing joy.
Several people, including Sue, commented on how comfortable I am with all this. Of course, I’ve had the best spirit guide in Laura. She was holding my hand and tickling me during the day.
But Sue also thought my intuition might have awakened earlier due to having battled Multiple Sclerosis for most of my life. I’ve healed myself using alternative methods and a lifetime’s symptoms have vanished (that’s a story for another time) but shortly after I was officially diagnosed in 2004, I had a vision that a large piece of my head was missing, almost half my skull was gone.
And then just as I was feeling sad, into this hole poured the most beautiful golden light. I felt that my illness had cracked me open and let the light in. That out of this suffering, beautiful things would come. And they did.

Look at this lost and pained soul standing before you who has just hurt you, acted from their ego self, and know that you no longer want to look like them, act like them. They’re showing you a part of yourself that you’re ready to surrender.
All that’s required of you in this moment of anger is to see the other person as a wounded soul doing the best they can from their own level of awareness. Love them for their pain and struggles because you’re just like them. By loving them, you’re healing yourself.
Rise above the unconscious ego behavior they’re showing you – because it’s ugly, selfish and desperate, and that’s not who you are. That’s not who you aspire to be.
One simple breath and a request for guidance, pulls you away from habitual reaction and raises you a notch towards your great soul potential. Thank the messenger for the lesson; thank the soul standing before you who triggered your reaction. Your anger is revealed so that it can be healed.
The next time someone says or does something that triggers your anger, you’ll already be removed from the ego experience, more in touch with your soul’s wisdom, watching it all unfold from your divine lens. You’ll pause, take a breath, adjust your lens, and choose your words gracefully. Compassion will pour through you if you allow it.
This is the gift of your anger. This is the gift of your opponent arriving with their sword drawn, eager to slice a piece of you. In that moment of sacred recognition, everything changes, and you realize that nothing and no one can ever hurt you or tarnish your lovely soul – when you view it through your divine lens.
You already know how this ends…
You know that in the end you will be fully revealed as who you came to be and you hope that this revelation won’t be on your deathbed when the illusion finally fades and it’s too late to change everything.
And you hope it won’t be when you’re too feeble to do your soul’s work. And you hope it will be now. Today. Not tomorrow, although tomorrow is not too late.
But today is always better.
Today is always the best day; to start everything, change everything, love everyone like you never have before, drop your fear on the ground and forget to pick it up.
Because today is juicy and alive and tomorrow may never arrive.
And today is when you planned to finally listen to your soul’s wisdom, use your divine lens to see what you never saw, to know everything you’ve needed to know.
Today is the day you meant to transcend all limitation, to release all fear, to take the big step, to throw out the old, to swing open the door to your heart and see everything fearlessly, recognize your shit, embrace your gold, and get it done the way you came here to get it done.
Today is that day…
Because I couldn’t see the logic of not jumping off the cliff and instead felt, with all my heart, that the jump must be made, I took the leap; it was the leap that changed everything and brought me into the glory of a luminous world that lives within everyone and everything.
And once I’d made that leap it became so easy to do it again, and again, whenever I found myself in a corner and couldn’t see the light. I had discovered that light lives in the leap. And love awaits the courageous act.
And now nothing could ever keep me from the leap or dampen my courage. What a gift this was and I am still so grateful. It is the best truth I ever learned and worth every bruise I ever suffered.
Without the leap we don’t understand a thing. We think the glory is in the withholding, the caution, politeness, acceptance, boundaries.
But none of those places hold truth. And none of them teach us to fly.
Caution is a weighted thing and it puts you on the bench to watch the game.
Caution keeps you seated nervously on the cliff’s edge viewing everything you fear below, counting all the reasons that a leap would ruin you, explaining all the ways it could go badly, telling stories of how to live with planning and steadfastness without ever being foolish.
At the end of the game, you’ll see that it was you being foolish.
Because everything that ever mattered lived in the leap; that one moment of taking a breath and trusting in the wind to carry you, seeing suddenly that letting go was everything – it was always the point of your existence and the reason for your story.
