Welcome to our Transformation Game about Tarot Card # 15 – The Devil and his little brother – The Cynic.

According to Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, a cynic is “A faultfinding captious critic; especially one who believes that human conduct is motivated wholly by self-interest.”

Comedian Stephen Colbert describes it even better when he says, “Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the furthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying ‘yes’ is how things grow. Saying ‘yes’ leads to knowledge.” 

Indeed, the role of the cynic in American culture has been considered an admired and time honored tradition. Yet, there is very little that’s wise or honorable about feeding beliefs that keep people small with one’s energy or attention. 

How Can We Let Go of the Cynic?

Sadly, the Cynic tries to block help even if it would really do him or her some good.

Gaze softly at the Circle below and imagine you can detach yourself from any collective, societal beliefs that being cynical is a desirable way to connect with anyone… with yourself, a mate, a family member, a business associate or anyone you know… even people in general.

In your mind, you can see those old agreements like chains that block your highest good..

“I release agreements to buy into the malaise of cynicism.”

“I burn up negative self-talk about my worth, my humanity, my appearance or my abilities.”

“I release agreements that negate _________.”

“I release agreements to rebel against people, places and things that would actually help me.”


The chakras around a person’s ankles can get tangled when they encounter cynical energy. Release the energetic ties that hold you back:

“I stop tripping over confusion and negativity. I clear away the chains that bind me.”



Empower your ability to transform the Cynic.

It may take a while to expel all that cynical conditioning! Allow this Chart to help you access your divine connection and empower your choice:

“I connect with my spirit to fulfill my true potential.”

“I choose to be open to my highest good.”

I reclaim my authentic source of power and self-worth.”

“I have the ability to face the cynic and dispel its effect on me.”


Take time to REPAIR your blind spot.

Everyone has a “blind spot” somewhere in their consciousness. For some reason, we’ve all been conditioned to turn a blind eye to something. However, The Cynic actually functions out of a blind spot. You may want to see if you can remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, together with these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance all of my senses.”

“I REPAIR my blind spot(s) and access true wisdom instead.”

“I use my senses to become aware of my highest good and the very best my situation has to offer.”

“I can clearly sense what will help me say “yes” to _____________.”

What kinds of help have you been saying “no” to?

Is there anyone who has recently offered you something that you immediately blocked or said “no” to without seriously considering it?

Have you recently poo-pooed one of your own ideas?

In each of those cases, did the “no” come from your Authentic Self? A cynical place…? or somewhere else?

Are messages from your Spirit being blocked by the Cynic?

The Cynic is not our friend!

In this case, delusions are the cause of our suffering – not other people or things. I’ve heard it said that cynicism is the father of disappointment and despair, so let’s detach from the beliefs that create disappointment or despair in ourselves or anyone else.

Gaze softly at the Circle and imagine you can close the door on any collective, societal malaise that feeds these common cynical beliefs:

“I release the belief that people are: 
want to be lied to,
don’t want to help each other,
don’t care,
are not to be trusted,
or that people are ____________.”

It is true that some people are behaving in these ways, yet to declare that it comes from the essence of their being feeds the Cynic, not our Souls! Plus, it does nothing to move us forward as a culture.


What is your Soul communicating to you?

When we allow Soul guidance and access the wisdom of our Higher Selves, we hold that same power of light within. Gaze softly at this Circle and ask:

“What do I need to ask for inner guidance about? What really matters here?” 

Old Soul

Do you feel disconnected? If so, what would help?


You may need to correct the emotional ingredients you’re using to connect with.

The Essential HumanIt might help to detach from the collective personality of the Cynic. If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now may be a good time to use Emotional Corrections A – E between pages 97 and 101 to access and balance energies you’re pulling from the ‘collective malaise”. Choose archetypal  energies between #1 and 42.

Going through this process will help you let go of misunderstandings, harmful behaviors and connect with a more positive outlook and your Soul! 


Now you’re ready to clear the habitual mental and emotional blueprints ~

We all have family patterns and social conditioning that contribute to the malaise of cynicism. You can use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify them in your unconscious mind and clear them out. Just imagine the harmful thoughts, emotions and attitudes are like dark clouds, dissolving away or disappearing into the Sun.

Keep dissolving them until you can see yourself standing in a beautiful field with a blue sky overhead!


The personality of the Cynic might be rigidly held in your energy field. Use this Reiki Chakra Key to help you relax and unlock the pattern.



The Cynic often goes underground to spread his or her lies and distortions. Use this symbol to imagine you can collapse any energetic sewage system that’s spreading contaminates to or from you!

Empower healthier choices.

Now that you’ve cleared all that, it’s essential to turn your attention to what you would prefer to create and feed that instead. Here are some suggested affirmations:

“I empower my ability to have faith in humanity.”

“I am filled with courage and determination.”

“I redirection my attention and energy to ________.”

“I empower my choice to _______.”



Complete your Transformation Game ~

Now that you’ve learned some of what’s involved with The Cynic, be certain to close the door on any leaks or pathways that might lead you back to that pattern. Use this affirmation with the Circle to help you:

“I close the doors and seal the leaks that lead back to The Cynic.”

“I head in the direction of healthy protection.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Congratulations! You have just let go of the cynic and dealt with one of the biggest bullies in our culture. Go out and celebrate by doing something really nice for yourself!


Feng Shui Mandala

Suggested Feng Shui input to counter-act the energy of The Cynic in your space:
By input, I’m talking about the information (data, art, movies, music, objects, color, elements) that you expose yourself to or surround yourself with.
When you surround yourself with genuinely uplifting input, it will produce a sensory response within you that can make all the difference in your motivation.

  • If you happen to have any objects – perhaps coffee cups or clever posters, badges or refrigerator art that displays the cynical mind at work, take them down and replace them with images that inspire and uplift your true nature.
  • If you have had a feng shui or space clearing session done on your home, your environment is already set up to give you support and positive input. If you’ve never tried feng shui, try re-arranging twelve items (objects, knick-knacks, furniture, artwork, etc) in your home or office that increase your sense of self-worth (you can also go through this Feng Shui Game if you like).
