Another technique [of the dark forces] that is very prevalent these days is called a “you know, you are” technique. Dark forces, seeing that in the future you can be a leader of light, slowly inject into your aura the feeling that you do not need to study, learn, search. “You know already; why waste time,” as if you had more important things to do! They also suggest that you do not need to work on yourself because “you ARE already...” Years pass and you remain ignorant, and your beingness remains the same. You become an obstacle on your own path and on the path of others.
