How to Not Fall Down the Conspiracy Rabbit Hole

There is a phenomenon on the internet, wherein we become exposed to information which asserts that the actions of a particular governmental group or institution have a sinister, harmful intent behind it. People come forward with claims and anecdotes and interpretations of things which they use to back up these claims.

Now, when faced with such assertions of ‘evil, harmful conspiracies happening’, it can be easy to go into fear and start wondering and thinking and interpreting everything now according to these claims – going down the Conspiracy Rabbit Hole. And with SO MUCH information out there, it’s important to have a practical structure within yourself to deal with those moments so you don’t just keep feeding your fears and ending up spreading your fears to others like a Virus.

Firstly it’s important to learn to admit to ourselves when we don’t actually have all the facts and information about the topic. When we don’t in fact see directly what is going on. When the information is mostly just opinions and the tone of the words is that of blame and finger pointing. And also learning to admit to ourselves when we don’t really have any practical ability to change or stop a particular event or action being carried out — even if it WERE true. Admitting that we don’t fully understand something, and don’t have any practical control over it anyway, means we have to confront ourselves as the source of our own Fears and Thoughts about these things.

But isn’t it better to empower ourselves to face the world with a clear, practical head, rather than a head swimming with fears and thoughts about worst case scenarios and endless unknowns?

So when and if you find yourself agreeing with, and believing in assertions of evil, sinister conspiracies, practice slowing down and looking at what fears and thoughts and imaginations came up in your mind, and take a moment to write them out and look at them. Seeing and defining your fears is an essential step in being able to stop yourself from going down the rabbit hole of conspiracies. After all, how can we see the Truth of anything ‘out there’ when we aren’t willing to admit and take responsibility for the Truth of what’s going on in our own minds?

Now here are some Self Forgiveness statements to support with re-aligning your relationship to assertions / claims of ‘sinister conspiracies and actions’:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to become obsessed with the idea and premise that there is an ‘evil truth’ behind everything

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize and see that the reason I may ‘resonate’ with certain conspiracies, is because the information ‘resonates’ with the resonance of my own fears and thoughts.

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see and realize that wherever I participate in and define myself and my world according to my own fears and imaginations which I believe to be real, I am able to be manipulated with information which plays into those fears and imaginations of what is real.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to become obsessed with the idea of ‘revealing the truth’ about things, when within this I am neglecting and ignoring the truth of myself, the truth of what goes on in my own thoughts and emotions.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to imagine, think about, and create fears of myself / my family being harmed, imprisoned, enslaved, and killed by the government.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to, through my own actions of thinking and imagining, create worst case scenarios in my mind which then consume me with fear.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to imagine and participate in the fear that the government is going to give me cancer.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to imagine and participate in the fear that the government is going to take away all my stuff.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to imagine and participate in the fear that the government is going to infect me with diseases.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fill gaps in my understanding with my own fears.

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to, when and as I read or see claims of sinister intentions behind events taking place in the world, slow down and look at what experiences are coming up inside my mind / myself.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in whatever thoughts and fantasies and imaginations of worst case scenarios come up in my head without question. Within this I forgive myself that I have closed myself off from my ability to process information with a level head, and critical thinking and practical considerations.

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that an important part of critical thinking and evaluation of information is to admit when the information is incomplete and not able to be verified.

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see and realize that my own fears and thoughts are in themselves IMPORTANT INFORMATION that I need to be aware of, and understand – so that they do not CONTROL me and influence my WORLD VIEW.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to participate in Assumption, Belief, and Opinion about the ‘truth’ behind certain events that take place in the world / actions of the government / companies, etc, instead of seeing and realizing that in this I am committing acts of disinformation and manipulation against MYSELF, and compromising my ability to live my full potential and focus on what is most relevant to me in my life, as I become Fixated on Conspiracies.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to approach researching and learning about current events within a starting point of an Agenda of WANTING to find conspiracies, instead of seeing and realizing that in this I am creating a bias within myself, wherein I close myself off from considering all the information, and I end up deliberately looking in sources that are aligned with my Conspiracy Interests.

When and as I encounter claims and assertions of sinister government intentions behind events or actions playing out in the world, and I experience myself going into a state of ‘oh shit, this is bad, I have to warn others about this’ — I commit myself to first STOP and WRITE out any and all fears, assumptions, and imaginations that I see coming up in my mind, and do self forgiveness on them.

I commit myself to learn about things I don’t yet understand, instead of thinking and creating fears about them.
