‘Half-truths’ are the most trapping. These words come from Tobias L Jonsson, a well-known spiritual teacher residing in Sedona, Arizona. For the past 25 years he has been on a journey of spiritual study, spending time with master teachers in India, shamans in Southern America, as well as studying holistic concepts such as heart centered Tantra, ego confrontation, and the path of divine romantic love. During his journey, Lars experienced a series of ‘wake-up calls’ through business ‘failure,’ divorce and bankruptcy. These events were the catalyst for his societal emancipation which spanned over 5 years following the collapse of his career and marriage. It was during this withdrawal from day-to-day life that he experienced a new level of soul awakening, one that completely shifted his conscious perspective.
Today there is a collective interest being shown for Lars’ work, perhaps in part due to his “no BS” approach to spiritual awakening, an approach which sets Lars apart from the commonality of most spiritual educators. His workshops and Youtube channel offer seekers practical knowledge about the shifting paradigm we are currently experiencing.
In one of his Youtube videos, Lars explains the dangers of half-truths, something that we all are prone to. “The closer you get to the truth,

the most trapping the half-truths can be”, Lars states. What is the half-truth Lars is referring to? It is the oldest trick in the book, still being used because it still works. Our soul, which is unlimited in its etheric energy (accessed through the 7 Chakra points), is being drained through the use of bait. The trap is anger and blame, an ego reaction. They (puppet masters) create a war in which we feed our energy against something, i.e. cancer, politics, health. We become a crusader against something rather than just being and enjoying our natural state.
We are light, and are full of light, but only potentially. Our etheric energy is being harvested for the most part, and in this case the puppet masters always win. Thus, a mechanism to bypass this harvesting is often followed by many spiritualists, a common trait Lars notices within the spiritual community. People will respond to the negativity of the world by saying ‘Well I’ll just ignore that and stay in peace.’ The problem with this, Lars goes on to explain, is similar to a problem one would have if they painted over toxic lead paint. The poison is still there. The problem and trauma is still there and needs to be released. He uses the analogy of swallowing a fish hook, “the hook needs to be removed in order to heal.”
All of us need to do the work of clearing karmic/egoic baggage, but in order to do this we need to face it first. Lars explains that through various methods we can truly face this baggage allowing us to release it for good. His personal account with the Amazonian brew ayahuasca has helped him to do this, he says.
“If you don’t pull out the hooks, you’re still hooked. You are still avoiding it.”
Lars explains that many spiritual teachings seem to avoid the cleansing aspect of soul work, teaching students to ‘rise above’ density. Instead, Lars promotes a simple concept to help people truly ‘win’.
“Let the evil trigger you. FEEL IT, FACE IT, and FREE IT. We cannot keep denying fear to truly be free and ascend.”
By using the power of alchemy, we can absorb these denser energies (anger, frustration, blame) and transform them into something beneficial for the whole. By understanding the trap that we pit ourselves in, we have the ability to free ourselves in ways we’ve never realized before. Much love <3
