Are you a modern mystic? Whether you are a new age, crystal lovin’ millennial or an adept soul that has been studying esoteric mysticism for decades, here are 9 signs you are a true blue modern mystic.
1.) You are open-minded.
You’ll try practically anything once, and you are highly respectful of diverse opinions and beliefs—even if they differ from that of your own. Instead, you exercise compassion for others, promote equality for all, and hold sacred space for philosophical debates, spiritual discussions, and continued personal development.
2.) You are a lifelong learner.
You yearn to know the mysteries of this earth. You crave to unlock the secrets she holds. Naturally inquisitive, you have an insatiable desire to devour spiritual wisdom and esoteric information. This thirst drives you to continually take classes, watch webinars, read books, and soul search.
3.) You are self-aware.
You possess a highly introspective nature, so you are very conscious of your limiting beliefs, destructive patterns, and emotional blocks in this lifetime. You also celebrate your unique talents and valuable gifts. You know yourself well on so many levels and are mindful to take steps towards balancing out any behaviors that may be hindering your growth.
4.) You embrace ancient wisdom.
You pay homage to the sage knowledge of the ancients, and revere the wisdom of these longstanding teachings. You recognize that although old, these pearls of antiquity hold great meaning that has withstood the test of time. You understand that wisdom traditions still have a special, sacred place in this modern world and are already beautifully present amongst many indigenous cultures.
5.) You are attracted to anything mystical or metaphysical.
Astrology, numerology, tarot, chakras, auras, psychic development, shamanism, plant spirit medicine…pretty much if it’s esoteric in nature, these are a few of your favorite things! Some of you might have been into these subjects since you were a child, and some of you—once you came across it—instantly grabbed onto it with all your might because it resonated so deeply within you.
6.) You find ways to rejuvenate your spirit—and energy field.
You create and engage in regular personal rituals and self-care to cultivate your sense of spirituality and support energy levels. Although this is totally individualized, your practice might include meditation, visualization, mindfulness, gratitude, breathwork, spending time in nature, and conscious movement like qigong or tai chi to revitalize yourself.
7.) You understand that everything is interconnected.
You recognize the divine matrix that intertwines and entangles everything on this planet, from all living beings (plants, animals, humans) to the tiny pebbles under our feet. You deeply comprehend how the energy we put out—our behaviors, beliefs, words, thoughts, and actions—can profoundly affect others (and vice versa) for better or worse. Therefore, you are mindful of this universal truth and hold it sacred.
8.) You are a teacher.
It’s not enough that you want to spiritually evolve yourself in this lifetime, but you also want to help others on similar paths. Because you “walk the walk and talk the talk,” you’d make an excellent guide and co-creator for others. You are attracted to (or already in) career fields like coaching, psychology, holistic health, higher education, energy medicine, social entrepreneurship, and the like.
9.) You ain’t no sheep.
You’re not afraid to go against the grain of society. You buck the system. You’re unconventional and a nonconformist. Heck, you have even been labeled a misfit or rebel, but the point is you could give a f*ck less about doing what everyone else is doing since you do what feels right for you on the soul-ular level. In fact, this is one of the reasons why you’re here: big changes in this world never came from those who just accepted the bullsh*t and griped about it behind closed doors. You’re a changemaker who’s here to help usher in a more holistic, peaceful, and spiritual era for this world.
Welp, this is exactly the kind of human we need in the world today: one that has great aspirations of what the world could look like one day, and takes action steps right now to begin moving towards that great vision. As a modern mystic, you’re not afraid to stand up for what you believe in and fight for those who feel voiceless. You continually find ways to bridge the gap between your own spiritual beliefs or practices and modern day life. And as you lead by example, it helps others to do the same. So for all ya’ll modern mystics out there…OWN it! #modernmysticsunite
