Santa Claus is a lie! A liberating lesson about false beliefs in any system


When I first heard those words from my spiritual teacher, “Santa Claus is a lie,” I was shocked even though I knew it was true! The truth sank into my core, and I  was finally free of the illusion and all the stress, obligations and expectations that accompanied it. 

As adults we experience the stress of doubt in our spiritual life without consciously knowing the reason. Lies and illusions can spread to include distrust of ourselves, our inner knowing, and even prompt us to make accusations against others in our self-righteousness unless we take steps to change. 

Traditional lies

During our childhood we are taught to believe in traditions, even false ones, but eventually we learn the truth. We learn that people lie to us, blindly believing it is a good thing to do.

Though we are all reaching for Love, we may feel like we need something to believe in to make us happy and feel like we are part of something. 

Dream the dream of illusion

A great fear of ours is to be left out! That fear of being left out and the desire to belong feeds the subconscious ego and we blindly become ‘followers.’ This can lead to misunderstanding, doubt, impatience, anger and hatred because we can become self-righteousness. We see so much of this in our world. 

We can invest so much emotional expectations in a blind belief that when those expectations are not met we experience stress and heartache. And, until we face and reveal to ourselves the cause of our stress, doubt and pain, we will continue to dream the dream of illusion. And, we will continue to experience the pressure, expectations and obligations accompanying it. 

Liberation comes through conscious awareness and Love

Until we consciously awaken, question, discriminate and listen to our inner Love and guidance, we will accept every belief, superstition  and prejudice without discrimination. 

How do you even begin to listen to your inner guidance? Follow your feelings, your emotions, to their source. The true reason back of them. 

When you consciously experience your emotions you can sense a problem and ask yourself questions as to why you feel that way. Expand your consciousness and open to the tenderness of your heart. And, your Higher Self and your connection to your sacred heart center will lead you to the answer. 

Such insights and inspirations are messages from your soul. And, we all have additional help, including from greater realms of Harmony and the Great Principle. 

And, live in the moment. When you mentally focus on your body in your surroundings then you can focus on your inner presence and be grateful for so much you may take for granted. 

Truth or consequences

The way you respond to conditions in life determines the way you evolve. It determines your power, health, success and happiness. You can be conscious of creating in the Light of Love or circle unconsciously in the consequences in the action of karma.

But, even the path of pain, stress and doubt can lead us through the lesson to love and compassion. When we’ve suffered enough we will look for the reason why and do something about it.  

Being free of a false belief opens you to be conscious of the Light of Love. It releases you from expectations, obligations and the mass dream. A burden lifted off your back!

All lessons lead us to remember Love eventually,

which is the base of unconditional Love.

“Let us lift our eyes from this increasing darkness to the pure Light of Knowledge, aflame with Love – that bright Star on the firmament of Life, which is heralding now to mankind, the Dawn of a New Day, the Day of Spiritual Regeneration, which is to bring to man lasting Justice, Peace and Happiness.”

Consider watching a 3 minute video on how the modern Santa Clause was derived:

Releasing False Beliefs about Yourself, Part 4


grasp the significance 3, foto76

If you feel aggravated while interacting with someone then a low-frequency ego trait was most likely activated. Yet, that uneasiness can be your great asset! 

Your emotions can lead you to realize the Wisdom and authentic Power of your Soul. When you become conscious of being tempted by a negative emotion or behavior it inferably is your Superconsciousness gently letting you know something is not in harmony with your soul! 

First things first!
When I feel some uneasiness during an interaction with someone, I use the FourSquare, as discussed in Part 3, to help me pinpoint the reason and name the trait or thought that was not in harmony with the qualities of my soul.

Once I consciously realize that I was tempted to engage in a harmful trait that is based in fear, I then will myself to relax mentally. This is important so I can focus on going further in my attitude adjustment! I then mentally step away from that adverse criticism and let it go. I let it pass me by. I turn it away; I throw it away; I blow it away! It is such a liberating and empowering feeling!

The next step is life changing – I mentally look up within to connect with a Higher Power – Universal Life Energy to help further harmonize and inspire me. I realize and make a declaration of Truth to align with love instead of fear with a statement like:

This brings my awareness and gratitude into the moment before speaking or acting. I manifest that attitude adjustment in some physical manner. It may be something very simple, like a smile to a stranger or sincere listening and to what the other person is saying. It will be a choice that is motivated by love rather than fear.

You’ll know a change has taken place within yourself and so will the other person if they acknowledge it or not.

Temptations of the Ego
We experience detrimental emotions and traits because of choices we made in the past and choices we make now. Through the law of karma, the Law of Cause and Effect, we unconsciously create harmful conditions that become habitual by frequently engaging in thoughts of worry, impatience, anger, procrastination, or carelessness! 

The subconscious ego aims to dominate us with these temptations, and thus we come to believe the illusionary personality traits we engage in and claim them as our own. You may come to think that is who you are, including that you are a terrible person at times, not good enough, not lovable or loving. You are not your thoughts! 

Your Soul Mind Connection
You may be tempted by fear-based emotions, yet that feeling of something not being right is your Higher Self awakening you consciously to the illusion of the insecure ego. Your Higher Self or Superconscious is your connection to Universal Mind. You are tapping into Divine Mind when you listen to your intuition. Be grateful!

You have the Eternal supporting You and helping You unconditionally! Take the opportunity to release subconscious traits in the moment and choose to align with Love instead. In this way you will  bring out the qualities of your Soul in your life and empower yourself to attract more conditions for your happiness, and indeed the world!

You will come to know that You are a beautiful Soul and so very good at heart.

With Light and Love, Portia SLB

Consider this quote to reflect upon:

“Without our knowing it, Superconsiousness plays a more important role in our lives than subconsciousness because it is always watching us and reminding us when we make a mistake.”
