7 Behaviors That Keep Us From Living Our Truth
Do you believe you have a pre-destined purpose? Or do you believe that you completely control every event of your life and existence?
If you believe you have a pre-destined purpose, are you living the life that you were destined to fulfill, or are you struggling to live in alignment with what you believe you're supposed to be? Are you living the life that you created with focused consciousness, or are you living according to patterns and programming set by someone else?
Living organically can be difficult, because our societies are founded on control, judgment, and selective organization. In order to belong, we have to act a part that's deemed acceptable.
Do these acts resonate with our truest realities, or the realities that we'd like to create? If not, how can we unravel the programming that's inhibiting our destiny or blocking our manifestation capacity? Is it possible to return to our truest selves while remaining part of society?
I certainly believe so. But first we must become aware of behaviors, attitudes, and emotions that block us from our desired state.
The following Personality Types are meant to help you to recognize when you are experiencing someone who is not coming from a true Source center (self or other). Use these classifications not to judge, but to empower yourself and your decisions.
7 Personality Types That Keep Us From Living Our Truth
The taste of sweet comes in many forms—from the obvious cane sugar and fruits to alcohol, and even in the form of many recreational drugs like heroin. Those who justify excessive use of honey, agave, or natural sugar supplements aren’t fooling us either. Essentially, this person seeks a substance-induced high.
The fire personality type is intense, and their intensity drives them to move. Their movements create friction and that friction exudes magnetic warmth and desirability. They're brilliant at creating stories and illusions as a means of distraction, and they dread being caught in any of their lies. Essentially, they, too, are hungry.Their hunger is far more intense than the insecure, emotional Sugar type. They are typically very passionate, logical yet often angry and reactive. Fire personalities like control. Physical addictions are common with the Fire personality as well, but instead of seeking gushy sugar, they seek fire—in the form of sex, coffee, cigarettes, spicy food, fitness, and image.
The stuffer is often the person who seems to carry the weight of the world on their shoulders, yet, for whatever reason, they do not communicate, process or demonstrate their feelings. As a result, this personality type stuffs their emotions with food, sedative drugs (pain killers, marijuana), suppressive avoidance (tension) and/or becoming the victim of controlling relationships.
Growing numb to how they feel, they tend to have a difficult time understanding their emotions, which means they have a difficult time expressing their feelings. A stuffer seeks to suppress the feelings with which they are uncomfortable. Succumbing to guilt eating denies and ultimately weakens one’s personal power of self-control.
The Airy personality is completely removed from reality. They do not want to know, and/or cannot handle, reality. They tend to lack down-to-earth common sense. They tend to be religious, superstitious, spiritual, dependent and possibly delusional. Airy personality types gravitate towards new age communities and cults. They want to believe that there is a definitive, external reason for their life and that someone else has created and controls it. Since food is a grounding factor to one’s emotions, the Airy may likely avoid food. This behavior can easily be justified as perpetual purification fasting. They fool themselves into believing their enigmatic ways are based on a true, unseen reality, which only feeds the external delusion and avoidance of the present-moment reality in front of them.
The Avoider personality type can be very frustrating in relationships—work and/or personal. They are not comfortable outside of superficial relationships where they can control how they are perceived and what expectations are placed upon them. The Avoider does not become involved with others unless they know: (1) they are held in high esteem, due to their fear of rejection, and (2) that no one needs anything from them due to their fear of responsibility. If an issue arises in a relationship that threatens their esteem or lack of responsibility, they will fly away, making conversation and/or resolution very difficult. By flying away, sticking their head in the sand, or laughing off the situation as unimportant, the Avoider deflects intimacy, accountability, their emotions and fears. We never really know what they eat!
Ever met a person and felt an immediate jolt of resistance? After making an introduction and attempted a truthful impression, you find that nothing you exhibited was accurately perceived? The Wall personality projects their perceptions before a person is able to display who they are or what their true intentions were. The Wall tends to be very judgmental and pre-occupied with their mental perceptions; so much that they cannot perceive each moment organically as it happens.
Wall types are rigid, and they're driven by fear. They associate certain objects or situations with fear, and they learn to avoid the things that they fear or to perform rituals that help minimize those fears. The Wall personality rejects anything unknown, and they have poor negotiating skills because they do not want to hear from anyone else. This fierce belief of control creates a rigid and stubborn personality. Their food selections can be obsessive and repetitive, often eating the same choices every day.
Predators come in many forms and they can be classified by their intention. There are benign Predators, and there are malignant Predators. A benign Predator has minimal desire or intent to cause harm to another person, but they are fiercely programmed to win. These kinds of Predators thrive in business and sales. They love closing deals, starting and acquiring companies, winning a new customer and the like. They feel a sense of accomplishment when seizing control of other properties and entities.
They differ from a Fire personality in that a Fire thrives on being active and being seen as a winner, whereas a Predator type seeks to seize and control other entities, always giving less than they receive. Predator often eat large amounts of meat and animal products.
