The New Age “love and light” philosophies get plenty of criticism for being ignorant of the darker side of reality, for being steeped in denial and wishful thinking, and for turning its adherents into weak doormats. The “You Create Your Own Reality” concept (YCYOR) is central to the paradigm, based on the assumption that everything that happens outside of you is a reflection of what goes on inside you.
Proof of this is offered via the
observation that positive thinking attracts positive experience and
negative thinking attracts negative experiences – which is accurate,
as far as I can tell.
Likewise, the darkness outside of you, namely the plethora of predatory forces in human and nonhuman forms as well as the external consequences of poor choices made over the years, will inevitably give you a rude awakening from denial. In other words, when wishful thinking and denial is chosen over awareness and responsibility, things catch up with you sooner or later.

For instance, if YCYOR does not work out for you, it is easy to get bitter and throw the baby out with the bathwater, rejecting “positive thinking” as a form of weakness and denial when, in truth, the problem was that the positive attitude was not accompanied by balanced awareness.
So instead of positivity combined with
awareness, you might choose awareness at the expense of positivity.
This is bad because while awareness prepares you to deal with
negative phenomena, a negative attitude actually increases the
occurrence and severity of such phenomena. It’s like becoming aware
that a pipe has burst and fighting to patch it without first turning
off the water valve.
Those steeped in this mindset boast
about being realists while justifying their stance by scoffing at
more subjective alternatives like
the New Age paradigm. Of
course, they are thinking in binary terms because they are not
aware, or unwilling to acknowledge, a third and more holistic
perspective. They see only what is false in one half-truth, true in
another half-truth, and push the latter as vastly superior to the
first when both are equally defective.
What kind of phenomena?
Depends on their belief system, but here I mean something like a massive increase in suspicious characters following them in public, black helicopter harassment, signs of tampering and monitoring, constant tormenting by dark astral and etheric entities, ongoing violent alien abductions, and so on. These things may have their own independent existence, but they are drawn in and enabled by skewed awareness and negative attitude, especially – and this is important – when one mistakes these “attacks” as necessary confirmation that one is on the right track, that one has irritated the dark forces by throwing a wrench in their works.
This mistaken belief only serves to
further reinforce what has already become a turbulent path in life.
Still, something like the five-stages of grief can take place:
New Age wishful thinking is located in the first stage.
Combative dualism is stuck at the fear
and anger stages, where awareness of the problem is unaccompanied by
higher understanding, a more balanced attitude, or awareness of the
positive side of reality. Its center of gravity is the ego, and the
ego’s idea of positive is whatever strokes, soothes, and feeds it.
The key is to be aware of both halves of
the duality and how each fits into the greater whole. There is unity
in the essence of duality, and duality in the expression of unity.
Understanding this greater context gives you the needed perspicacity
and wisdom to effectively deal with problems without loosing your
Treat the threat as you would the danger of being run over when crossing a road – don’t get bug-eyed and madly dash across or you might trip and indeed get run over, or hop around the street shouting and flipping off traffic or you might get shot, just calmly look both ways and cross…
Acknowledge and nurture the spiritual power and confidence within you rather than depending solely on external gimmicks and gadgets. And if you try any sort of manifesting or prayer routine, keep in mind it’s not the content of that routine so much as the deep-seated attitude behind it that produces results. If you pray for being saved by a higher power, yet maintain a deep-seated attitude of victimization and disempowerment, then the latter is what you’ll manifest.
When belief is tied to ego-based identity, anyone challenging that belief will be perceived by the ego as an attack upon its own existence, and the response can be quite nasty. Become aware of these issues and then you can deal with them.
If you really are a threat, these forces won’t play around with flashy theatrics:
I know this from experience.
The purpose of all this is mainly to get your vibes back up so that you’re no longer neck-deep in shark-infested waters (see Realm Dynamics). Even if conditions are shitty, make a conscious choice to stay lucid and emotionally above water instead of drowning in negativity and self-loathing. Keep a check on your thoughts and emotions, as what goes on within does correlate loosely with what goes on outside.
The erroneous, the bad, and the ugly must not prevent the soul from finding the true, the good, and the beautiful wherever they are present.
We must not confuse positivity with being artificially uncritical or arbitrarily closing our eyes [YCYOR] to things that are bad, false, or inferior. It is possible to admire a dead animal’s “beautiful teeth” and still see the decaying corpse; the corpse does not prevent us from seeing the beautiful teeth.
We cannot consider bad things good and false things true, but we can reach the point where the bad does not prevent us from seeing the good and errors do not keep us from seeing the truth.
