• Ego inflation
  • Spiritual materialism
  • Spiritual bypassing
  • Messianic visions
  • Don’t forget to inform the people you’re working with before you offer them the experience so they can be active participants
  • Do not capitalize on what the sound does! Allow and remind them, to own the experience and to feel self-empowered
  • Be aware of what feeds your ego in a negative way and hinders your own process
  • Spot and stay away from gimmicks, dogmas, cults, hooey and hokey stuff, unconfirmed rumors, wishful thinking, wishful believing, myths, and fables. They have proven not help on the personal or community levels. Real spirituality is never about any of this! But understand why people are drawn to them, and the nature of their manifestation and gravity. Be compassionate toward those who are still stuck in them and help in bringing awareness
  • Think and observe carefully before you exteriorize an experience
  • Be skeptical but not doubtful or cynical. This helps to not make assumptions but to look for proof and to validate the work in the field and your opinion regarding it.
  • Avoid using stock words and expressions that are à la mode these days and try to find a more meaningful way to articulate what they intend to communicate
  • Meditate on what intentions you have before you do anything significant
