Spiritual narcissism versus being in the spiritual closet – how to find a balance?

spiritual narcissism versus spiritual closet

Today in my little voice notes, I discuss how important it is that spiritual & new age communities find a balanced way to practice spirituality and to show up authentically without displaying signs of spiritual narcissism or the opposite: not daring to come out of their spiritual closet at all.

Toxic spirituality is a thing. And so is the fear of being seen as too “woo” or “out there”. What are your thoughts on this? Have you encountered spiritual narcissism or people in their spiritual closet? What would you advise? Share in the comments.

What is spiritual narcissism?

Essentially, I see it as a “feeling more awake than” or “better than” or defining oneself as “woke” and others as “sheeple” or “asleep”, “toxic” or using hashtags such as “highvibesonly”. I go deeper into it in the mini voice note below.

What does being in the spiritual closet mean?

Being in the spiritual closet means not daring to show up as all of who you are post your spiritual awakening or post doing self-awareness and self-development work. Or being afraid of shining your light brightly and owning it. Being afraid of being perceived as too much. For this I wrote a mantra:

I am allowed to outgrow old parts of myself.

I am allowed to outgrow people.

I am allowed to outgrow situations.

I am allowed to expand into a higher version of myself without feeling guilty.
