Are the Delusions of the External World Keeping You Stuck?

It’s easy to stay stuck in the illusions of the external world, as they’ve been conditioned in us since childhood. I believe it’s how we’ve come to accept false beliefs as our truth? Typically false beliefs are inherited from influential figures in our lives; parents, teachers, partners, friends, politicians, … People who we consider to be unquestionable authorities. Many of these people live from the illusions they speak of which tend to be  unhealthy and unbalanced. They life us have been told be someone other than themselves.

No judgment here. It’s just what a person believes to be true until a time comes when it is no longer the truth.

In my experience, the delusions of the world keep us stuck and are based on false beliefs. They move us away from clarity, confidence, and courage. Away from who we are destined to be. Why? Because a false belief is usually a conditioned one, inherited by the fears and ego of another. It’s likely to be part of the collective illusions of society.


The collective delusions of travel and typology, chapter one from my debut book; Unpack your Personality: Let Your Inner Guide Be Your Travel Guide goes into detail as to why looking outwards, and believing what you’re told online is right for you. It may be, but more often than not you need discernment. Nina Zapala, author, introducing spiritual personality typing, a modern day tool for self-discovery.


Do External Delusions Keep Us Focused Outwardly Instead of Inwardly

 Are you bowing to the delusions of the external world pressures: do this,  be this, or need to wear this to be accepted? These are false beliefs and illusions that separate you from your true self.

Many of us overlook the importance of a healthy and balanced personality type. In Western cultures, we are not taught to find ourselves and live heart-centered lives? We are taught: 

  • making money is the only way.
  • work hard,
  • look a certain way,
  • fit in, 
  • power-down what makes you different.
  • live consumptively,
  • And then retire.

Society claims, retirement is the time to enjoy life. But at that point in life do we even know how to do this?

So is society telling us our lives aren’t to be enjoyed until we retire?  Not to enjoy our daily life? To live in joy, peace, and the wisdom of being present. In my opinion, we are here to learn about ourselves, and become more God-like, not bend to the illusions of power, and wealth.

What if we are all here to create ourselves anew every day? It doesn’t have to be in a big way. It can be in small ways. Regardless the idea is to learn, grow, play, and evolve.  I don’t believe it means dedicating every day to making a buck!

Are you Anchored in the Delusions of the External World Being the Only Way?

Are you anchored in the illusions of the five senses? If so you’ll want to ask yourself these three questions. If you answered yes to these, your beautiful soul is likely to be separated from your true self: your sacred personality type, and the soul self, the spirit mind which should always be leading your life.

#JOURNAL PROMPT: Time to get out a journal, tape recorder, or whatever your personality does to help think through the questions below.

1. Are you unclear about the way forward in life? Is your ego, shadowing your truth, powered by the delusions of the external world?

2. Do you live life overwhelmed and make decisions out of fear, relying on external answers, thinking you are not enough, being told by another what’s best, afraid to let go and do things differently…

3. Your emotions mirror a roller coaster ride up one day and down the next. Why? Your True Self conflicts with who you are, keeping the emotional roller coaster alive and well.


Is There Another Way Beyond Delusional Thinking?

Every coin has two different sides, which make it one.

We as human beings have a front and back; both are different, yet they make a whole person.

So I pose this question. Can we agree we are human beings having a spiritual experience?

If so then do you believe as human beings, we are made up of two completely different aspects of self; the human self, ego, and the Divine Self, the higher self; spirit, your soul?

The human self lives in the physical world, experiencing itself through the five senses. The beingness aspect of self lives in the nonphysical world, the world of intentions, serendipity, and surprises: the multi-dimensions of the Divine Intelligence. Both parts of the self must work together to bring about an organic whole, which I’ve determined to be the true self the truth of who we are.

When we live by the true self, we communicate Divine messages taking inspired actions expressed through our personality, aka our personal reality.


“Knowing yourself is life’s eternal homework.” Felicia Day, an American actress, writer, and web series creator.


What if Your Inner Divine Self Could Show You Another Way?

What if inner Divine self was an invaluable tool? I belief when you rely on your Divine self, and let it inform your logical self you open the gateway to higher consciousness, allowing the spark of the Divine within  inspire your best life. When you allow it to speak through your five senses you’ll consistently take inspired actions?

Knowing yourself is a daily practice of self-examination and questioning. A practice that is foreign to many of us. You must journal, meditate, pray, and work to stay in the presence of Divine Intelligence; which means stopping the busyness, the mind-numbing consumption of food, “tell-a-vision”, scrolling, and work. Get out in nature, in stillness, and hear the whispers of Divine Intelligence. What are those messages? Take them into your heart and learn. Learn it all, Each day, each hour, each moment!


It’s about human imagination and curiosity. What’s out there? What’s in the great beyond? What exists at levels we can’t see with our five senses? – James Cameron.


What If The External World Told You …

– Follow your dreams,

– Do what you love,

– Have faith in knowing the world works with you, not against you?

Suppose the vast majority of us had been taught self-love, to reflect upon choices beyond physical world ideology, and had been shown to embrace our higher selves. In that case, I think we would naturally take full responsibility and not let another person become the author of our lives.

What if we were taught there is a six sense that are beyond our physical world senses that actually inform the five senses?

Our choices would stem from trusting ourselves, and we would be crystal clear moving forward in our lives with courage and confidence. Likewise, our commitment to finding the center of who we really are would be as natural as breathing.

I think we can all agree, that chasing after the perfect career is an external battle that never resolves itself. It’s why over 86% of people are unhappy with their careers.

How do we arrive at our truth? It begins with a daily examination and questioning of all the information we’ve encountered. It’s asking the question, is this information for our highest good or the good of humanity? If not, throw it away.


I boldly claim that finding yourself is your life purpose. Is it critical to a joyful, soul-centered, peaceful existence? Another post to ignite your passion for getting to know the True Self is this blog post, Discover You True Self!

More About Spiritual Personality Typing

I hope you found “Are You Anchored in the Illusions of the Five Senses Being the Only Way.” eye-opening. I’m doing a happy dance if you say yes. You see, I’m passionate about introducing the idea of spiritual understanding as a component of personality typing.

While the career personality type of the 1950s model is fantastic, as we awaken to our spiritual needs, we must incorporate the gifts of a healthy personality type to align with our signature, Soul Self. When we do this, we express our soul’s intentions through our personality, taking inspired action in all we do. As a result, we show up in the world with great clarity, full of joy, passion, and purpose.
