Being discerning in the New Age

Being discerning in the New Age

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Wizardry does not equate to wisdom. Magic does not equate to self-realisation.

Sure, magic is impressive. My eyes almost popped out of my skull when I watched a guru materialise a ring. The ring literally dropped out of the sky and fell into my open palm. It was silver with a peridot stone, and fit my finger perfectly. This was our first meeting, and I have very small fingers. So, he was legit.

(This guy could also materialise ash that smelled like roses, gold coins, and healing stones.)

But I distrusted his powers. I pulled away and hurried out the door when he offered a collaboration. (He’d heard about my psychic ability.)

The next day, I realised it actually wasn’t him that I distrusted. It was my own feelings about this type of power. It stirred in me a longing that didn’t feel right. It felt seductive, and lucrative. I didn’t like it. I had to walk away.

I discerned that—for me, at least—this wasn’t spirituality, rather showmanship.

I understand why many of us get taken off track, or taken advantage of in the New Age.

It’s hard not to be impressed with magic. Nor is it easy to go this road ourselves, when it’s so much easier and less scary to depend on others, or New Age paraphernalia.

Tarot cards, mandala beads, white sage, crystals, talismans, runes, goddess figures, healing wands, chakra stuff, etc. can become vices—objects of magic not of soul, if you’re unaware.

If you’re not careful they’ll point you away from yourself, instead of towards yourself.

Finding yourself and walking towards yourself is what you signed up for when you came here. You chose to choose free will, and to follow your north star which is located in the centre of your heart.

You chose to walk the path of “thine own self be true.” … This means you have to navigate the light as well as the dark of the New Age.

But if you keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, your mind still, your heart open, and your solar plexus strong, you’ll clearly see the charlatans from the saints. You won’t get distracted or dependent. You’ll keep following your north star.

Feet firmly planted on the ground.

Mind still.

Heart open.

Solar plexus strong.

In White Light + Love,

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

Belinda Davidson, Modern Mystic

I’m bilingual. English is my native tongue, and I also speak German. I didn’t learn German until I was an adult.

Belinda Davidson, I Love Feng Shui

I have a new love. Feng Shui. And I have a new mentor. Her name is Grace Niu. She’s a Feng Shui consultant, intuitive, and graduate of School of the Modern Mystic®. I met Grace in-person years ago at an event I gave in Melbourne.

Life has served me some severe blows in the last two years. I’ve experienced deep loss and pain, that at times, makes me feel like I don’t want to take another…

Belinda Davidson - Modern Mystic

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.

Belinda Davidson, How to Not Get Dragged Down By Others

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.


Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.


Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.


Struggling to stay focused when you’re meditating? Can’t get through a whole chakra cleanse? Can’t stop the monkey mind? Or perhaps you want to go deeper into each one of your chakras and feel and experience the power and magic of your amazing energy field and energy anatomy?


Belinda Davidson, This Is True Healing

I got a distressed call from a client some days back. Her friend had had a session with a kinesiologist, and the kinesiologist had removed an “entity” from her energy field. “My friend’s a mess,” my client told me. “The session was five days ago, but she’s still sick, shaky, and out of it. The experience was really scary. My friend felt like she was being pushed out of her body, and the kinesiologist was thrown across the room.”


Belinda Davidson, Beyonce Healed Me

I’m not plugged into mainstream media and music. I don’t know about pop stars, pop music, and all of that. Occasionally I’II hear something, because I have a nine-year-old daughter, but mostly I’m uninterested. Also because I don’t care for hyper-sexualised music videos of young, half-naked women writhing about with pink lipgloss giving me deer eyes.
