Finding your SELF Inside of Your SELF.

 

Finding your SELF Inside of Your SELF.

By Suzanne Lie

 

Posted March 20, 2020.

.


Dear friends and readers,
 
Having nothing to do and nothing to read will make the long days of isolation much more difficult. Therefore, I will be putting up something new on my blog as often as possible. After all, my husband and I are staying in our house-- Just as I hope you are doing as well.

Allow your self to read one poem/short story at a time, or read them all at once. Blessings to you all dear strong and very brave ones. If you wish to share any of these in any manner, please do. I wish I could do more, but I have found that if I keep myself busy, and especially if you do something creative.
In fact, do something creative that you did not have "time" to do before. If you enjoy any of these poems or messages, please feel free to pass them on to others.

 
ALONE
 
Alone with my self
in a world filled with fear.
Alone with my self
if I’m there or I’m here.
 
Alone with my self, 
all my boundaries are lost.
It’s the truth that I seek,
 No matter the cost.
 
Alone in my mind
while my heart seems to steer.
My actions are foreign,
their causes unclear.
 
To be in the One
is the call of my Soul.
To know who I AM
is my prayer and my goal.
 
I summon the moment
to give me a reason
to be who I AM 
in this time and this season.
 
Alone in my self,
I call forth the light
to show my true path
and bring down my might.
 
But am I alone
in this time of great question
or part of the Oneness
of which I’m one section?
 
This section’s a portion
of all I might be,
a fragment, a segment
of all I can see.
 
I beckon the One 
to come into my heart
to show me the BEING
of whom I’m a part.  
 
 

 

AMOUR

 
Open your heart, my dear.
The anchor within it weighs heavy
with the barnacles of many
ages of submersion.
 
To sail into the heart of the One,
the anchor must be raised.
Know that as the anchor 
rises to the surface.
 
Then, all the secrets that have been
locked deep inside will be pulled
into the Light of Day.
 
Can you Love yourself?
Can you Accept yourself?
Have you hidden from yourself in order to 
maintain the illusion of who you wanted to be.
 
To raise the anchor in your heart
means to know who you ARE.
You are prepared for misery.
Are you prepared for Joy?
 
You are prepared for heartache.
Are you prepared for Happiness?
You are prepared for darkness.
Are you prepared for the Light?
 
What if you opened 
the rusty old chest which you had 
kept  secret from yourself
and found that it was filled with Gold?
 
Can you face not that which is wrong,
Instead of that which is already Perfect?
You have met your Demons.
NOW is the time to meet your Angels.

You are perfect.
In this moment, 
and live in the lap of Love.
You do not need “to do.”
You only need “to accept.”
 
Allow my words to float
deep into your heart.
I love you unconditionally
and desire to share my Soul with you.
 
Only LOVE is real.
The Rest is all Illusion
 
 


 
ARISE
 
Arise, awaken, the Mother calls.
Alight your wings your tails, your claws.
 
The Earth is ready for a change
and many dread disaster’s range.
 
Fear not for Light and Love and Purity,
but rather know them as security.
 
If you have learned to Love each other,
you’ll love your Earth, as she’s your Mother.
 
But, if in your greed, you’ve taken all
it is that choice that is your fall. 
 
Release them now your many things.      
They close the eyes and clip the wings.
 
For that which is possessed - possesses.
And that which is released - releases.
 
The flight of the Phoenix began with a fire
to cleanse and purify the mire.
 
The streams of Life will flow forever.
  The breath of Spirit, it ceases never.
 
Protect the Earth.
Embrace the Moon.
Accept the Sun.
 
The hour is SOON!
 
 
AWARENESS
 
 
The flower opened slowly
because I thought it must.
The labor was so painful
because it seemed unjust.
 
The sky was dark and dreary,
for tears had blurred my sight.
But, love returned and called the Sun
to turn me towards the light.
 
My Spirit whispered to me
in answer to my call,
“Come here, my dear, and listen
and I will tell you all.
         
You are creator of your life
in each and every way
by the actors you perform with
and the dramas that you play.
 
What moment are you choosing?
What torment are you losing?
 
Open up your heart, my dear.
Fill it full of love, not fear.
 
The journey is beginning.
Your freedom, you are winning.
 
Live life in surrender.
Allow your Soul to choose
Walk upon the path of love.
There’s nothing you can lose.”
 
At last I know, I am aware.
I remember what I knew.
I welcome in a brand new life.
The old one now is through.
 
 
 
 
 
ACCEPTANCE
 
Release the struggle and accept the gift
For heart and mind to make the shift
 
Into the ONE that’s always been
Beyond all fear and free of sin
 
This step is one we know we’ll make
It is the journey we ALL must take
 
We know and own all of our life
To cherish love and release the strife
 
For as we travel where we go
The Truth within, we soon shall know
 
Where once we hid to close our eyes
We hold the Truth and free the lies
 
We have awakened just in time
To feel our SELF that is sublime
 
We accept the call from Heaven’s Gate 
For now we can no longer wait
 
Into our SELF we forge ahead
Towards all we’ve done and all we’ve said
 
Our life will never be the same
For now each Soul will have a name
 
We shall see the ONE in every face
As, collectively, we live in Grace
 
Together NOW, we all shall travel
To find the Mysteries we will unravel
 

Awakening Beauty

 
 
Once upon a time in a far away land, Mother Earth and Father Sky lived happily with all the inhabitants of their kingdom. Their joy could only be improved by the birth of their wonderful daughter, Beauty. At her naming celebration the Fairy Godmothers Wisdom, Power, and Love, came to bless the babe. Each Godmother gave the infant a special gift. 
 
Fairy Godmother Wisdom gave Beauty the gift of a mind that is free of limitation and self-doubt. Fairy Godmother Power gave Beauty the gift of the ability to know and trust her instincts. However, just before Fairy Godmother Love was to bestow her gift, a dark cloud crossed over the sun and the glorious banquet room became filled with darkness. From the very core of this gloom materialized the forgotten Fairy Godmother, Fear. 
 
It was, of course, easy to forget Fear because no one enjoyed her company. "Good Day," crackled the harsh voice of Fear. "I see that my invitation did not arrive at my abode. I, however, have eyes and ears throughout your kingdom and have thus learned of this grand celebration. Knowing that you would not purposely exclude me, I have come to give MY gift to the Princess Beauty."
 
Everyone in the palace was silenced by terror. The Queen rushed to the infant's crib, but found that she could not come closer than a few feet from the sleeping child. Fear laughed her wicked laugh. "Does my presence hinder your ability to protect your child?" 
 
The Queen found that she was mute. Everyone, even the three other Fairy Godmothers, was frozen in position. It was as if time had stopped. Only Fairy Godmother Fear could move, and she was quickly advancing on the infant's crib. The mute Queen gasped in terror. "Do not worry, Dear Queen, I shall not harm your daughter, YET. I only wish to give her my gift." 
 
"My dear Beauty," cooed the wicked Godmother, "enjoy your youth, for on your sixteenth birthday, you shall prick your finger on a spinning wheel DIE!" Fear cackled her evil laugh, spun herself into a vortex of darkness, and disappeared from the great hall. As light came back into the room, everyone awoke from their stupor of terror. The Queen rushed to the now crying infant and held her close to her bosom. "No," sobbed the Queen. "How can my Beauty die?"
 
"Wait," spoke the Fairy Godmother Love. "I have not given my gift to the Princess. Perhaps I can ease Fear's terrible curse." The grateful Queen placed the infant back in her crib to receive Love's blessing. As Godmother Love approached the crib, the infant instantly ceased her crying and starred into the light of Love's eyes. 
 
"My dear one," spoke Love. "I cannot change the entire curse of Fear, but I can lessen its severity. When you prick your finger, you shall not die. Instead, Beauty, you will fall into a deep sleep to be awakened only by the kiss of Truth. I command that somehow, dear Beauty, Truth shall find you and bestow upon you Unconditional Love."
 
 Of course, every spinning wheel in the land was burned to prevent Fear's evil prediction. However, on the exact day of her sixteenth birthday, Beauty followed her "instincts" up a long narrow stairway without a single "doubt" in her mind and pricked her finger on the awaiting needle. 
 
Beauty's last thought as she fell off into a deep sleep was of how much she had loved her life and how much she would miss it. Sorrow that Fear's prediction came true was more than the kingdom could bear and the three Fairy Godmothers mercifully put the entire kingdom into a deep sleep until Truth's arrival. 
 
The story of Mother Earth, Father Sky, and their daughter Beauty quickly spread to the surrounding lands. Following the tale was Fear. The story had, of course, been amplified in the telling. Beauty, along with her entire kingdom, was now believed to be dead. Fear had made sure that this alteration in the tale had taken place. 
 
All who heard this tale ran into their homes and barred their doors against the evil darkness of Fear. All, that is, except one. He was a prince from a distant land and his name was Truth. "I do not believe that Beauty is dead," he said. "I believe that Beauty is just asleep, and I shall be the one to awaken her!"
 
Prince Truth had no idea how he could even find the princess, much less awaken her. However, he knew that he was Powerful and had the inherent Wisdom to seize whatever opportunity came his way. Therefore, he decided that he would make the journey to that distant land of Mother Earth and Father Sky. Along the way, he told everyone how he would rescue Beauty. Gradually, the Prince's great confidence began to ease the hearts of the many that were afraid. These people chose to follow Truth to assist him in his rescue of Beauty.
 
However, even though many followed Truth to the Castle, few could enter the fearful brambles that now engulfed the entire Castle. In fact, for the final few feet through the brambles, Prince Truth was alone. Worse yet, as Prince Truth cleared the bramble bushes, Fairy Godmother Fear awaited him to fill his mind with images of all he had ever feared. For a moment Truth faltered in the face of his own fear. But then he remembered that Beauty needed him to rescue her, and he fought courageously.
 
Finally, Truth was victorious over Fear and the Prince banished her from the land forever—he hoped. Now nothing lay between Truth and Beauty. The Prince rushed to her bedside, pulled her into his arms, and gave Beauty a deep, loving kiss. 
 
I would like to say that Beauty instantly responded to Truth's love and rode off with him on his valiant steed. However, this was not the case. The Princess, as well as her entire kingdom, had been asleep for a very long time. 
 
When Beauty first awoke, she did not think of Truth's kiss. Her first thought upon awakening was of how she had followed her "instincts" into the tower without a shred of "doubt" and touched the very needle that she had been warned against her entire life. 
 
Beauty's instincts told her that Truth loved her, but she had learned to doubt herself. If she could not trust herself, how could she trust the Prince? After all, she had forced the entire kingdom to suffer a long sleep. How could SHE deserve the love of Truth? 
 
"He must want something from me," she mused out loud.
 
"I want nothing, dear Beauty. My love for you is unconditional," the Prince proclaimed. 
"Then," she queried, "will you love me if I don't go with you? Will you love me when I am old and not so beautiful? And will you love me even if I love another?"
Now these questions were very difficult for Prince Truth and he found that he could not find an instant reply.
 
"You see," continued Beauty, "This sleep and the brambles that you say you have parted for me, have offered me protection for many years. Why should I release this protection just because you-a total stranger to me-have asked me to? I cannot trust my instincts for they have led me astray before."
"Dear Beauty, I understand what you say. But I have traveled far to offer you my Love."
 
"How can I accept your Love when everyone around me sleeps? How can I abandon all that I have known just because you say there is something better?"
The Prince now understood Beauty's plight. 
 
"Come dear Beauty," spoke Truth, "You and I shall awaken your entire kingdom together. Let us begin with the King and Queen."
 
"Hmm," thought Beauty, "Perhaps Truth's love is Unconditional." 
 
However, before she could be sure, the Princess would need to heal her own self-doubt, so that she could again trust her instincts. After all, everyone had seemed to love her for her entire life, but no one was able to protect her from the curse of Fear.
 
Truth and Beauty then went throughout the castle awaking everyone from the slumber that had protected them from the pain of Fear's curse. Many awoke with the same misgivings as the Princess had, and it was many years before the entire kingdom was free from Fear's curse.
 
By then Truth and Beauty had learned to trust and love each other—UNCONDITIONALLY. Beauty had to learn through experience that Truth's love was Unconditional and Truth had to learn that Beauty was not someone to seek and rescue, but someone to listen to and protect.
 
You see, Beauty could not find her own Wisdom, Power, and Love until she had personally confronted her OWN fears. Truth could awaken her, but she could only accept his love when she could love herself.
 
The moral is, the sleeping child within you may not want to be rescued, at least not at first. Until you are willing to enter the kingdom of your child and awaken each subject from its long, fearful sleep, your child may not accept your "Unconditional Love."
 
In other words, if you want your inner child to trust you— you must earn it.

The Breath of the Heart

 

The Breath of the Heart

A Message from Archangel Raphael.

Through Shanta Gabriel.

March 18, 2020.


 

 

.

 

 
 
Every time you purposely offer your breath into your heart it is a divine opening to Archangel Raphael and the legions of healing angels. Simply breathing into your heart purposefully is an action that awakens this connection.

Whenever you are moved to tears by sweetness or beauty in your world, it is an opening into the realm of Archangel Raphael. Whenever your heart is in pain from the suffering of the world it is an opening into the realms of Archangel Raphael.

Whenever you touch your heart and breathe into this center you are connected to the realms of Archangel Raphael.

Call on this blessing to help you see new levels of Truth. Open to Love in all that you do and say. Allow yourself to soften so you can just BE love. Be the Breath. Be the Hope. Be the connection. Be the Love.

With these simple truths let a new level of opening come to you that exposes your vulnerable heart, and allows the strength of Divine Love to empower you. There is no more powerful force in the Universe than Divine Love. As you strengthen your connection to your Heart Chakra, it acts as a radiant self-generating force that gets stronger with use.

Remember the area behind your heart as well. Let this part of your body also feel the force of Divine Love empowering your life. The area behind your heart has developed an armor to protect you from the fearful imaginings of your most innocent child self. The part of you that acts as a guardian for your soul’s essence has covered this area with a field that was intended to protect your heart from attacks on many levels. As you take down the armor and let the Breath of God bring healing into that area, more of life can support you. It allows an opening for the attraction of the people and energetic flow that activates Divine Grace. Imagine this armor behind your heart and allow it to soften into a magical angelic cape that you can wrap around you to bring comfort. The realization that you are truly not alone works in your consciousness further softening your heart. As you take down this armor it will empower your life in surprising ways. You will know truly deep within your heart that you are always wrapped in Wings of Pure Love.

When you allow yourself to soften you can bring an open heart into every situation. This changes the frequencies so much that you can literally transform the situation into a greater opportunity for your soul to work in and through every area of your life. This brings you the deeper awareness that which you need in order to thrive in the world. On your breath and with your focus, you have access to God’s Intelligence working in your heart.

As you expand your chest through your breath, yoga or other physical activity, an opening can occur so you have access to the greater teachings available through your heart.

We in the Angelic Dimensions are creating new light structures to stabilize your life. These begin in the heart and radiate through your world. All that is ordinary becomes a gift that offers extraordinary beauty and an opportunity for more love in action within your life. To see the exquisite beauty in the ordinary requires you to slow down and see from a deeper place that allows the truth of your heart to surface.

Reclaim your innocence. Let your radiant trusting heart be the way you walk in the world. Let your heart lead your interaction with all people. Allow your heart’s wisdom to inspire you as you create more alignment with your soul in every moment.

Sacred Geometry supports your vulnerable heart by creating a sacred field of opportunity around your body. The ecstasy of feeling safe to open your heart in every situation is there for you in this field of intentionality. It supports you to bring your soul gifts into a world that needs your Soul’s gifts.

Know that times have changed and though you may not be aware of it, you are now able to sustain the strength of your alignment by the sharing of who you are.

Within all that you are is God working in and through you. Within your heart’s wisdom lay the teachings of the ages. Within all of life, the field of your intention sets forth the awakening energy for what you want to create in your life. It offers you the experiences you need to feel safe to bring forth your gifts into the world.

Align yourself with your Soul Purpose with every breath you take. Even if you do not know specifics, you know that you are here to open your heart and allow it to guide your way. Take the bold step to lead with your heart in every action you take in the world and all will transform. The new love and beauty you experience will empower your life to new levels of Balance, Illumination and Transformation.

And so it is.

Awakening Gaia's Beauty ~ Suzanne Lie.

Awakening Gaia's Beauty.

Through Suzanne Lie.

May 15th, 2019. 

 
.


 
 
Once upon a time in a far away land, Mother Earth and Father Sky lived happily with all the inhabitants of their joint Kingdom. Their joy could only be enhanced by the birth of their beloved daughter. 
 
At her birthing and naming celebration, the Fairy Godmothers of Wisdom, Power, and Love, came to bless the babe. Each Godmother gave the infant a special gift. 
 
Fairy Godmother Wisdom gave Beauty the gift of thoughts that were free of Self Doubt. However, just before Fairy Godmother Love was to bestow her gift onto Beauty, a dark cloud crossed over the Sun and the glorious banquet room became filled with darkness.
 
Then, from the very core of the gloom, the forgotten Fairy Godmother, Fear,arose It was, of course, easy to forget Fear, because no one enjoyed her company.
 
"Good Day," crackled the harsh voice of Fear. 
 
"I see that an invitation did not arrive at my abode. I, however, have eyes and ears throughout your Kingdom. Thus I learned of this grand celebration. Knowing that you would not purposely exclude me, I have come to give MY gift to the Princess Beauty.”
 
Everyone in the palace was silenced by terror…

"My dear one," spoke the Fairy Godmother Truth. “I cannot change Fear’s entire curse on you, but I can lessen its severity. When you prick your finger, you shall NOT die. Instead, dear Beauty, you will fall into a deep sleep to be awakened only by the “Kiss of TRUTH.”
 
Of course, every spinning wheel in the land was burned to prevent Fear's evil prediction. However, on the exact day of her sixteenth birthday, Beauty followed her "instincts" to climb up a long narrow stairway without a single "doubt" in her mind and pricked her finger on the awaiting needle. 
 
Beauty's last thought as she fell off into a deep sleep was of how much she had loved her life and how much she would miss it.

But then, he remembered that Beauty needed him to rescue her, and he knew and he knew that could NOT allow ANY harm to happen to his Beloved Beauty, High Priestess of the world that he had always cherished.  It was then that the Prince realized that he was not just rescuing one person, as this person held the gifts of Wisdom, Power, and Love. 
 
With the Wisdom of this realization, the Prince gained the Power to banish all Fear from the land forever—he hoped. Now nothing lay between Prince Truth and Princes Beauty. The Prince rushed to her bedside, pulled her into his arms, and gave Beauty his Kiss of Love
 
I would like to say that Beauty instantly responded to Truth's love, and she rode off with him on his white horse. However, this was not the case. The Princess, as well as her entire kingdom, had been asleep for a very long time. Therefore, when Beauty first awoke, she did not think of Truth's kiss.
 
Her first thought upon awakening was how she had followed her "instincts" into the tower without a shred of "doubt" and touched the very needle that she had been warned against her entire life.

Will you love me when I am old and not so beautiful?" 
And will you love me even if I love another?"
 
Now, these questions were very difficult for Prince Truth, and he found that he could not find an instant reply.
 
"You see," continued Beauty, "This sleep and the brambles that you say you have parted for me, have offered me protection for many years. Why should I release this protection just because you, a total stranger, have asked me to? I cannot trust my instincts for they have led me astray before."

You see, Beauty could not find her own Wisdom, Power, and Love until she had personally confronted her OWN fears. Truth could awaken her, but she could only accept his love when she could love herself.
 
The moral is, the sleeping SELF within you may not want to be rescued, at least not at first. Until you are willing to enter the kingdom of your inner child and awaken each subject from its long, fearful sleep, your child may not be able to accept your "Unconditional Love."
 
In other words, if you want your inner child to trust you, YOU must earn it.
 
(AND, if you want your planet to be beautiful, you must LOVE it and CARE for it!)

What Is the Halo Effect and 5 Ways It Distorts Your Perception of Others ~ Caroline Hindle

What Is the Halo Effect and 5 Ways It Distorts Your Perception of Others.

Have you ever thought you could tell what a person was like just from a superficial impression of them? You might have been under the influence of the halo effect.
This term refers to a tendency of people to make global evaluations of people they don’t know based on specific perceived characteristics.

There are several ways in which the halo effect can distort our perception of others:

  1. Physical attractiveness throws us off

The most obvious way the halo effect can influence our perceptions of others is that it can make us think that people who are physically attractive will also have attractive personalities. We tend to perceive them to be generally more successful or capable in their lives.
This psychological effect was first noted by Thorndike (1920) who conducted a study entitled “A Constant Error in Psychological Ratings” on servicemen. In this study, he asked commanding officers to rate soldiers that they didn’t know on intelligence, physique, leadership and character.
The results of the study showed that the officers tended to make assumptions about soldiers based on unrelated characteristics. Specifically, if they rated officers as tall or attractive, they tended to rate them as intelligent or more capable soldiers!
Thorndike also noted that colleagues saw similar effects in other institutions. He mentions that superiors were rating teachers in a school in the very same way. At the same time, these ratings were affecting promotions and salaries for the teachers in question.
  1. First impressions count

Another way the halo effect can influence us is that we tend to stereotype people based on a first impression of them. Solomon Asch conducted a study in 1946 in which he gave participants a list of adjectives about people. He ordered the adjectives either from positive to negative or from negative to positive, depending on the group the participants belonged to:
Group 1
  • Intelligent, industrious, impulsive, critical, stubborn, envious
Group 2
  • Envious, stubborn, critical, impulsive, industrious, intelligent
He found that when the first adjectives in the list were positive, the participants tended to rate the person positively. Similarly, if the first adjectives in the list were negative, the reverse would be true. This is an effect that is related to the halo effect called ‘the primacy effect’.
The primacy effect seems to occur as a result of our paying more attention to the information we get first. As a result, we tend to allow the information we get first to colour our perceptions of the information that we get later.
  1. People’s impressions can be easily manipulated

As more studies on the halo effect were conducted, it became clear that this phenomenon was not as clear-cut as it might at first seem. It would be easy, for example, to assume that this psychological effect is as simple as ‘physical attractiveness makes us think people have positive characteristics’.
Well, no, it is more complicated than that: the way we rate physical attractiveness can be manipulated by other factors as well.
Nisbett and Wilson (1977) did a study with students where teachers presented themselves as warm or cold and gave presentations. Students were then asked to rate them in both their warm and cold guises. When the teachers were in their warm guise, the students rated them higher on physical attractiveness and other positive characteristics.
On the other hand, when they were acting coldly the students rated them negatively on physical attractiveness and a whole host of perceived traits.
Moreover, this study also found that the students making these ratings were completely unaware of how this manipulation of one characteristic was influencing their blanket evaluation of completely unrelated characteristics!
  1. Marketing departments and politicians use the halo effect to their advantage

Two groups of people who are very interested in the halo effect are politicians and marketing departments. Since whether you buy a product or not or whether you vote for a politician or not can be so easily manipulated on so little information, it is easy to see why.
It is also pretty scary to think that people who are looking to profit from either your vote or how you spend your money can so easily sway your opinions. As we have already seen from the studies that psychologists have conducted on the halo effect, your global evaluation of a person can be influenced by physical attractiveness, an appearance or warmth, and even the order in which things are presented to you.
This makes the job of an advertiser or a politician very simple. This is why politicians, for example, needn’t talk about issues at all! All they need to do is appear well-dressed and friendly. You are more likely to make a decision based on how they appear than what they are saying. And they know it very well!
  1. The halo effect impacts your whole life

We have seen that the halo effect makes you a terrible decision-maker in terms of who you choose to run the country or who you choose to listen to as your teacher or doctor. Apart from that, however, it is affecting how other people are judging you, too, on a daily basis.
People are making snap judgements about your capabilities and your whole personality based on superficial impressions of you all the time. This can have huge implications: how you dress, your speaking voice, or whether you are coming across as warm and gregarious could be affecting your likelihood of getting a promotion or the size of your salary.
Your boss or colleagues are probably making these judgements regardless of how good you are at your job. In fact, if somebody says something bad about you to someone who doesn’t know you, that could change their whole perception of you, based simply on the fact that they heard something bad about you before meeting you.
And worst of all…?  – the people forming these impressions of you have no idea that they are doing it!

It is worth keeping in mind how much the halo effect can influence us from all of these perspectives.

The bottom line is that although sometimes we can judge people correctly on very little information, we really shouldn’t overestimate how good we are at making judgements.
From the outset, the first psychologist to conduct a study on this subject, Thorndike (1920), showed that people were making false evaluations of others based on this psychological phenomenon.
Later, Solomon Asch showed us that all they need to do to manipulate our impressions of something as positive or negative is to order positive and negative traits in a certain way. Nisbett and Wilson (1977) showed us that not only can we be easily manipulated, but we have absolutely no idea it is happening.
So next time you make an evaluation of somebody, whether it be a co-worker, a potential friend, or a potential leader for your country, try to make sure that you are making a decision about them for the right reasons. Or even better, try not to make any snap judgements without having solid evidence to support your views.
Do you think you have ever been affected by the halo effect, either in forming judgements of others or as regards how others have judged you? Tell us about your experience in the comment section.
