To Use or Not Use Social Media?

To Use or Not Use Social Media?

Many spiritually-minded people are cautious about social media. They’re wary of the ‘external-ness’ of it; the way it compels you to watch others, and always be up-to-date with everyone and their business.

Many people are also wary of the way social media allows us to portray ourselves in any way we choose, and many feel this glamorisation and over-emphasis on the positive in life creates an untrue image. Because nobody’s life is always perfect and positive, this makes us feel unworthy and sets us up to experience comparison, envy and disappointment.

Recently I’ve been asked why and how I use social media, and how I stay centred in my own self whilst doing so. I’ve also been asked why I use social media if I’m ‘anti social’ media. (I never said I’m anti social-media but I can understand why people may think this).

I use social media – Facebook and Instagram – because I love these channels for sharing the message, my business and inspiring and connecting with people. Every time I post through these channels, I send out a beam of white light.

So, I do use social media. But I use it consciously and cautiously.

It’s true that I rarely check my Facebook and Instagram streams, and currently, I’m not subscribed to any mailing lists nor do I use my private Facebook page. I also feel that spending lots of time on social media is a big waste of time.

For me personally, I also chose to use social media sparingly because I prefer not to be inundated by information. I find the nature of social media and the web very confusing and overwhelming for my sensitive empath nature, and social media often feels like an endless loop of broadcasting and events… and it makes my head spin!

I also prefer to be focused on the insights and information I receive within the space of the white light. I like living in my creative and spiritual bubble in which I’m only minimally influenced by trends and other people’s interpretations of their truth. My inner artist loves space, quiet and reflection, and that is also why I read very few self-help and spiritual books. (I prefer to rely on the direct insights I receive).

However, one of my daily joys is sharing and connecting on Facebook and Instagram. I love those spaces. I love the people I connect with there, and I endeavour to read every single comment someone makes.

I also love and am truly honoured by the fact that the people who follow me want to hear from me! For someone who is very cautious about who they let into their sphere, I’m deeply honoured that you’d want me in yours.

How to stay calm and confident in a world going crazy

Is this missing from your spiritual practice?

In a world filled with polarity, hatred, violence, division, and chaos, we can be the bearers and bringers of the light by practicing loving compassion towards ourselves and others. Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Having spiritual discernment 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.

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.

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.


How to stay strong in your energy (and 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?
