Invisible Enemies of Progress – Who Are the Spirits of Stagnation?

Guide me O, thou great Jehova. Pilgrim through this barren land, I am weak, but thou are mighty. Hold me with thy powerful hand. Bread of Heaven, bread of heaven, feed me til I want no more.

As I sat to write this post… this is the song I heard singing from beyond our world. It is a hymn found in the Christian Hymnal called the Sacred Songs of Solo, and we often sung it when I was a member of the Zion/Revival Church. I wondered why the Universe allowed me to hear this song while I began to write this post, but I realized that the words have everything to do with what I am about to share.

Two months ago we entered into the year 2024, and to all who did not know this, you will now know that this year brings with it the breeze of prosperity and abundance. It is a renewal year for many, because three years prior there was hardship to the point of everyone thinking the world would end. But we thank our Great Source that our lives have been preserved and we are now walking steadily on the road of 2024.

There are so many things that are positive that are waving like banners or flags in the air, spiritually right now. However, while many of us will benefit from the goodness that has been laid out like red carpets for mankind, (and it is our right to reap from it because we have overcome the hardship that had come before), many people will not see or benefit from this good redeemable year, and there is a reason.

I am not the bearer of bad news, I only come to teach or share what I know from Spirit because of my ability to hear from the outer world. And it is my belief, and has always been, that everything that can be seen can be changed, but only if we are willing to make that step.

Mankind are not an easy bunch. And although we are walking through a chaotic world, we are in charge of our life and our fate, and we must live according to not only the laws of the physical world, but also the laws of the spiritual world.

Some people will ask, “But how do I know the laws of the spiritual world?” And I will answer: “We all know the laws. Because it is encoded within our genetic makeup.” In other words, we all know ‘right’ from ‘wrong’ intuitively.

That feeling that comes over us after we have said or done the wrong thing, or for any action that we do that causes another harm or distress, there is an Intelligence within us that will speak to us at quiet times, at first to warn us not to do the harmful action, or after the deed is done, admonishes us for our choice.

Because we are still early into the year of abundance, I want to take the time to point out some defects that some people may display, but has held them back in life, or stagnated them, and what will not allow them to enjoy what “Heaven” (meaning the “Spiritual“) will throw to Earth like bread to all those who are not bogged down with the weight of these defects.

Revenge/Vengeance

It is never good to be vengeful. I have taught my children this because my own mother taught this to me. However, I have met so many people with a vengeful spirit, and yes it is a spirit. It lives within the mind of persons who, often, do not have proof of whatever harm they believe has been committed against them, yet they believe they must “get back” at another for whatever hurt they feel.

To have a vengeful mind is to host a legion of negative spirits within your own auric field.

It creates bitterness, vexation of one’s own spirit, antagonistic feelings, hatred, and more. And revenge is something that stays very long with the person who carries it. Writing it seems just like a word, but for the person who carries it, it’s a weight, a load, and it is the number one reason why many are stagnant and non-progressive.

A man who cuts another man off on the road, and in his moment of being consumed by anger and pride, he revenges the driver by cutting him back off.

This is not good. The Universe sees and knows everything. This is not a topic that most people like to talk about because so many people think it is not a problem, thinking that it is a normal feeling to hurt back when hurt, not realizing that this is a great spiritual mistake. Most of the world is vengeful to the point where some of the most successful action movies are based on revenge. Through revenge comes suffering, and unfortunately, it’s like a disease because it trickles down through generations.

Revenge is one of the greatest blockers of progress, and the reason is because of the baggage that it comes with. Revenge walks with a family of negativity, (again, hatred, bitterness, anger, etc.). These are spirits that those who act on revenge entertain in their lives, and these spirits are chaotic and begin to live with the revengeful person, and because of this, progress will be difficult or short-lived for such a person.

If a persons kitchen is dirty, they will entertain roaches. When you see one roach, know that many are around. Soon thereafter, the whole house will be infested. If you can apply this to a person harboring a vengeful spirit, then the energies that comes with that mindset, are all the above that I have stated. It makes the person a feeding ground for dark energy and an enemy of happiness and progress.

There are many impoverished and war torn countries that carry a great energy of vengeance. This force overshadows these countries like a tarpaulin.

Where there is war, there is poverty. Where there is peace, there is wealth.

Schadenfreude

What is schadenfreude? It’s a German word that means: “feeling pleasure or satisfaction when something bad happens to someone else“.

I have some family members whose picture should be beside this definition.

Schadenfreude is one of the worst traits or personality disorders that a person can ever have. In simpler terms, it is gloating over another person’s misfortune. We live in a world where principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high and low places rule. They are in the air and they are all around in everyone’s environment, and for those who suffer from schadenfreude, they live within them. Imagine being filled with joy when you hear the news of someone’s death or terrible disease, or that someone can not have a child, or has lost his job.

Everything has a spiritual penalty to it, and as such this is one because in order for a person to progress, they have to open their heart, mind, and spirit for the happiness of others to enter. It is a spiritual law that we must serve each other. Servitude doesn’t just mean to give, it means to support in whatever way. Not to do so, holds one’s own self back.

Again, the satisfaction felt from someone else’s misfortune is an energy that is malevolent and it supports and holds the hand of the next defect that I will introduce now…

Jealousy

This is called the Green-Eyed Monster, emphasis on the word ‘monster’. Jealousy has been the cause of many wars, the dethroning of Queens and Kings, and has caused many to hang from the gallows. It has separated families, turned brother against brother, sister against sister — everything described here is destructive, therefore jealousy is destructive.

It is a pawn of malevolent forces and almost inescapable, for it is everywhere and almost within everything. Wherever jealousy isn’t, the causes for it to rise within a persons mind shows themselves up in many ways. In other words, where there might have been peaceful living among friends, there’ll be one person who makes a comment to inspire jealousy between them, and like water on gremlins it starts to breed.

This, also, is one of the ways a person stagnates, regresses, or delays his own progress in life. I want to make it clear, because some of you may read this and say “I know people who are jealous or vengeful and I don’t see any problem with them,” but no one knows another’s destiny, and where a person is in life currently, they will always have further to go.

The progression of one’s life should always be viewed from a spiritual point of view.


There are many other malevolent spirits/energies that have latched themselves onto humans because of hidden vices humans have embraced to their personalities, like the aforementioned ones, along with anger, promiscuity, deception, and more. I wish I could go through all those malevolent spirits that attach themselves to the personalities of humans and cause them to languish in life, not realizing that these very tempting negative impulses are the causes of their own stagnation.

And what makes it worse is that there are many who are proud of these traits, believing it is normal, for, believe it or not, darkness, at times, can make a person feel good and give them a sense of satisfaction.

I am writing these things and they just seem like words that you already know, but these are not just “character traits”, they are spirits. And that is the point. And spirits do not walk alone, they walk with families. So entertaining one negative impulse, is to attract and eventually entertain many.

But there is a redemption… a little hope of light passing through the mind that may allow a reprieve from the Universe: and that is some type of remorse.

When the person begins to introspect, and admonishes himself or feels remorse for what he has thought or done, then he begins to introduce Light within himself. At this point, the Universe begins to send messages to him in response to the new Light, so he might find an Instagram post of inspirational messages, or maybe he gets a dream, or reads a line in a book that is uplifting.

So let your body be a vessel of light, and not of darkness.

Continue to always introspect. Don’t be afraid to look into yourselves, because sometimes we are delusional and like to think that these are someone else’s problems and not our own.

Enjoy this year of abundance. But be careful of materialism, and don’t forget to embrace your spirituality first.

My husband says that God is about Revenge . I don’t believe that and think that. God is merciful & graceful. He says that why he about revenge. My huband is revenge with things &peoples to a degree. Hé a man that don’t let go certain things.

When you wrote this part in the post ,Obara “” Revenge walks with a family of negativity, (again, hatred, bitterness, anger, etc.). ” I could see that andar also agree with that too.

What do you Think about this Obara, God being revengeful?

Thank you for breaking this down and getting so deep with it and making the answer so clear. This is what my husband must be taking about the Christian God. That why he like that. Revengeful. I am sure some other Christian people think the same way like him. I agree with what you are saying regarding , “God, the absolute has no emotions and therefore is not vengeful.” We as human need to be careful indeed with our own interpretation of things from the Bible. From the Christian view of things. Yes, I could read this again and again… Read more »

Sometimes I start flipping through the blog pages (and comments) and just read out of curiosity, and then I find myself putting my phone down and reflecting on your words in my own life… I spoke to my husband today and we ended up discussing this particular post.

This is very insightful. Do these things have the same spiritual ramifications if not acted upon?
Like you mentioned above, things like jealousy are often referred to as emotions or character traits, is it possible to feel or experience jealousy, not act upon it – and maintain spiritual progression?

Change for the better version of myself. Why is it a lot of people don’t want to acceptance their fault or behavior? Why do some believe they are their are the own& they are untouchable?

Very intelligent and helpful publication. It reminds me of when I was a child and would be angry at everything including breaking my father’s television because another wrestler won the one I was supporting . I then started understanding that there was no need for revenge because it took more energy to revenge than the actual deeds.as I grew especially with a very clear mind about people especially those that were more successful around me, like my classmates that scored higher in exams and artists who made great deals in the entertainment industry. I discovered that goodness in all ramifications… Read more »
