By lying to people and manipulating them, you are serving your Ego and Lower Self. Always treat others as you yourself want to be treated, with love and respect. As soon as you get into lying to other people and manipulating them for your own gain, you are creating bad Karma for yourself. You are no longer sharing Light but are in fact acting like an energy vampire. This means that you are just stealing their Light and using it to feed your Ego. This is a very demonic activity. You are actually clouding your Soul with negativity and separating yourself from it through this kind of behaviour, so don’t do it. As soon as you find yourself in a lie, or trying to manipulate someone, tell them the truth. You will be surprised how much other people will respect you for confessing the truth and you can get on the right track with them.
