Welcome to our Transformation Game about Tarot Card # 15 – The Devil and his little brother – The Cynic.
According to Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, a cynic is “A faultfinding captious critic; especially one who believes that human conduct is motivated wholly by self-interest.”
Stephen Colbert describes it even better when he says, “Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the furthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying ‘yes’ is how things grow. Saying ‘yes’ leads to knowledge.”
Indeed, the role of the cynic in American culture has been considered a wise and time honored tradition. Yet, there is very little that’s wise or honorable about feeding beliefs that keep people small with one’s energy or attention.
How Can We Let Go of the Cynic?
Sadly, the Cynic tries to block help even if it would really do him some good.
Gaze softly at the Circle below and imagine you can detach yourself from any collective, societal beliefs that being cynical is a desirable way to connect with anyone… with yourself, a mate, a business associate or anyone you know.
Release your agreement to block or reject things that are helpful.
In your mind, you can see those old agreements like piles of legal contracts burning up into ashes.
“I release agreements to buy into what others say about me.”
“I burn up negative self-talk about my worth, my efforts, my appearance or my abilities.”
“I release agreements that negate _________.”
“I stop tripping over my own self-hate. I release the chains that bind me.”
It may take a while to burn all that cynical conditioning up! But once it’s clear, make some new agreements with yourself that honor your potential and humanity:
I now tap into my true source of power and self-worth.”
“I respect my Soul and its purpose.”
“I lift my spirit to fulfill my true potential.”
Take time to REPAIR that blind spot!
Everyone has a “blind spot.” For some reason, we’ve been conditioned to turn a blind eye to something right around us. However, The Cynic actually functions out of a blind spot. You may want to see if you can remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, together with these positive affirmations:
“I REPAIR my blind spot and see things as they really are.”
“I use my senses to become aware of the very best my situation has to offer.”
“I can clearly sense what will help me to _______________.”
What kinds of help have you been saying “no” to?
Have you recently poo-pooed one of your own ideas?
In each of those cases, did the “no” come from your Soul? A cynical place…? or somewhere else?
Is a message from your Soul being blocked by The Cynic?
The Cynic is not our friend!
In this case, delusions are the cause of our suffering – not other people or things. I’ve heard it said that cynicism is the father of disappointment and despair, so let’s release the beliefs that create disappointment or despair in ourselves or anyone else.
Gaze softly at the circle to your right and imagine you can close the door on any collective, societal agreement to feed these common cynical beliefs:
“People are stupid.”
“People have bad taste.”
“People want to be lied to.”
“People don’t want to get better.”
“People are basically dishonest.”
“People don’t care.”
“People are not to be trusted.”
“People are ______________.”
It is true that some people are behaving in these ways, yet to declare that it comes from the essence of their being feeds the Cynic, not our Souls! Plus, it does nothing to move us forward as a culture.
Correct the emotional ingredients you’re using to create with.
So, let’s turn those sour grapes into fine wine by transforming disappointment and resentment into dignity and self-worth! This quick series of charts from The Essential Human will change the ingredients we’re drawing from the “field of potential”:
“I let go of being overwhelmed by others. I now reclaim the will to be tolerant and respectful.”
“I close the door on my obsession with the negative. I now choose live with satisfaction and optimism.”
“I close the door on lies and deception. I now perceive clearly by shining light on the truth.”
“I close the door on disappointment and frustration. I now accept healthy nourishment that supports me.”
“I shut the door on past resentments. I now hold hope in my heart to heal me in the present.”
Clear the habitual mental and emotional blueprints ~
We all have family patterns and social conditioning that contribute to the tendency to be cynical. You can use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify them in your unconscious mind and clear them out. Just imagine the harmful thoughts, emotions and attitudes are like dark clouds, dissolving away or disappearing into the Sun.
Keep dissolving them until you can see yourself standing in a beautiful field with a blue sky overhead!
Shut the door on all that pain and suffering and head in the direction of Self-worth!
Now that you’ve learned some of what’s involved with The Cynic, be certain to close the door on all openings or pathways that might lead you back to what you’ve just cleared. Use this affirmation with the Circle to help you:
“I close the doors and seal the leaks – as if they were never there.”
“I head in the direction of healthy protection.”
Congratulations! You have just let go of the cynic and dealt with one of the biggest bullies in our culture. Go out and celebrate by doing something really nice for yourself!
Suggested Feng Shui input to counter-act the energy of The Cynic in your space:
By input, I’m talking about the information (data, art, movies, music, objects, color, elements) that you expose yourself to or surround yourself with. When you surround yourself with genuinely uplifting input, it will produce a sensory response within you that can make all the difference in your motivation.
- If you happen to have any objects – perhaps coffee cups or clever posters, badges or refrigerator art that displays the cynical mind at work, take them down and replace them with images that inspire and uplift your true nature.
- Look back at the tastes that you had as a child. Consider playing the kind of music you really enjoyed or re-read your favorite adventure story. Your psyche will respond very positively to any input that you loved early on in life.
- If you have had a feng shui or space clearing session done on your home, your environment is already set up to give you support and positive input. If you’ve never tried feng shui, try re-arranging twelve items (objects, knick-knacks, furniture, artwork, etc) in your home or office that increase your sense of self-worth (you can also go through this Feng Shui Game if you like).
