New Age’s unhealthy obsession with spiritual, mental, and physical purity is nothing new. We’ve all seen endless articles, blogs, posts and marketing campaigns that promise to help “cleanse” and “detox” you from all types of unwanted parasites that lower your vibration. This need to cleanse and keep your vibration high at all costs also ties into another staple of New Age beliefs: The Shift.
The Shift is based on the idea that the world will go through a massive energetic “shift” that will trigger a worldwide spiritual awakening. The term is often associated with spiritual purity, in that new agers believe that only those who are enlightened or high vibrating enough will “survive.” Some believe the “shift” to be a return to the “Divine Feminine,” where the world will be filled with nothing but “love and light.”
As expected, this type of belief also opens the door to a myriad of unethical statements, where terms like “cleansing” are carelessly used to rationalize worldwide, tragic events like COVID and the millions of deaths it has caused.
