#14 – THE HUNGRY GHOSTS

OBSESSIONS, SCARCITY CONSCIOUSNESS, ATTACHMENT

CHALLENGER

When the Hungry Ghosts come to challenge, it’s a sign that you’ve succumbed to the fear of lack, which is whispering in your ear that you’ll fail. Whatever it is you’ve intended, you’ve stayed too long in the desiring stage. Longing and yearning have become your constant state of mind. Are you comparing your experience with others? Do you envy their success? Do you judge yourself only on your material accomplishments? Are you afraid that there will never be enough of anything and none of your dreams will be there upon awaking in reality? Perhaps you’ve turned to compulsive eating, shopping, working, or drinking to distract yourself. Let go of the illusion of lack, and accept things as they are: perfect, abundant, meaningful expressions of the Divine. There will never be enough for the Hungry Ghosts that challenge you, for the only experience they know is scarcity. It’s not your job to feed them. They will lose their power to haunt you. Trust in the abundance of Spirit.
