I must admit I am rather amused when some of the people I work with try to lie to me. What always comes to mind is--are you forgetting you're talking to a psychic?! Apparently they are.
There is no faster way to lose power than to lie. Essentially you give up your connection to your soul. You give up your freedom. You give up your power to create what you really want for yourself. You even give up the opportunity to even know what you want. You affirm you're both powerless and unable to take care of yourself in the most fundamental way. Over time that energy accumulates in the aura, creates confusion and congestion, and can create physical issues. Bottom line, it's just not a good way to go.
And the strength that comes from knowing your own truth and telling your truth is phenomenal; and it just builds. It creates a wonderful clear aura. With a clear aura you perceives clearly, think clearly. That means you make good decisions and choices. Being true to yourself always heals the body and brings energy and vitality.
It's a choice, but option one is really not such a great option especially in the long run.
