The story of selling your soul to the devil is a cautionary tale with many variations.
The basic premise of these stories remains the same: there’s something evil out there, and to get what we want, we have to give up our souls.
The idea of selling one’s soul has been around for thousands of years, and it appears in almost every culture around the world.
It’s used as a plot device in everything from novels and films to video games and music.
How did this concept get started?
Where does it come from? And is selling your soul to the devil real?
Fortunately, knowing the answers to these questions isn’t nearly as difficult as understanding why anyone believes that someone can sell their soul.
But before we look at where this belief came from, let’s take a look at some supposed indicators when you sold your soul to the devil.
1) You’re constantly tired, even though you get plenty of sleep.
When you sold your soul to the devil, you will develop a rather unusual appearance.
You’re constantly tired and exhausted all the time.
You’re always dragging yourself out of bed, rushing to make it to the office or school, and then collapsing in a heap of exhaustion once you get there.
And the worst part? You don’t even know why.
You get plenty of rest, but you still feel exhausted. Even after a good night’s sleep, you always look tired.
Why? Maybe it is because your soul is restless and can’t relax.
2) You have no interest in the things that used to make you happy
When you sell your soul to the devil, you have no interest in what makes you happy.
When you give up your soul, you are giving up everything that used to make you feel good.
You start to feel empty and lost. You lose your sense of purpose and meaning in life. You will also lose the ability to feel love, joy, and fulfillment.
Why is this happening?
Well, when we sell our souls, we are trading away the things that bring us joy in exchange for material possessions, money, or power.
This is a big mistake because it makes us unhappy and unsatisfied with what we have.
It keeps us chasing after more and more without ever feeling satisfied enough with what we already have.
This leaves us feeling empty and angry with ourselves for wanting something we can’t achieve.
This is a big mistake because it makes us unhappy and unsatisfied with what we have.
3) You’re always in a bad mood and quick to anger
If you are constantly complaining about the things that happen in your life and if you are quick to anger, it can be a sign that you are selling your soul to the devil.
This is because the devil is real and it is always trying to get as many souls as it can.
Therefore, when people sell their souls to the devil, they are agreeing to give their souls over to it.
This means that they are no longer in charge of their soul and that their soul is under the control of the devil.
When someone sells their soul, they cannot take control of it or have control over their emotions.
Instead, the devil takes full control of them and controls them through their emotions.
The devil does this by controlling how people feel about everything that happens in their lives.
The devil does this so that it can have more power over them and so it can feed off of all of their negative emotions.
The more negative emotions that the devil has access to, the stronger its powers become and the better it feels about itself.
When someone sells their soul to the devil, they cannot fight back against this situation because their soul is under its control.
Therefore, they will always feel like they have no control over what happens in their lives and that everything bad is always happening to them.
4) You find yourself making deals with people, even if it’s not in your best interest
There are times when you can be tricked into making deals with people, even when it’s not in your best interest.
When you are selling your soul to the devil, there will be times you feel like you have no choice but to go along with whatever the devil offers.
This is called the “bypassing” effect.
The bypassing effect happens when the devil takes control of your lower mind and convinces you that you have no other choice but to do what it wants you to do because it knows better than you do how to get what you want and need.
When this happens, your intuition is completely shut down.
You cannot trust your intuition and thought processes anymore because they are controlled by the devil.
You will only be able to trust what comes out of the mouth of the devil himself.
This can make it hard for anyone who sells their soul to know what they should do or what they should say because their instincts tell them one thing and their mouth tells them something entirely different.
5) You’re always thinking about ways to get ahead, even if it means stepping on others
When you’re selling your soul to the devil, it will tempt you to do whatever it takes to get ahead.
It will make empty promises that sound good on the surface but are just lies.
It will make you feel like you can accomplish anything, even if it means stepping on others in the process.
And it will give you a false sense of security so that you don’t feel like you need to take care of yourself or stand up for what is right.
When you sell your soul to the devil, you might lie to yourself about why you are doing certain things.
You might tell yourself that it’s for your own good, even when you know it’s not. You might convince yourself that it’s okay to step on others because they “deserve” it.
Or you might convince yourself that everything is fine, even when it isn’t.
When the devil tempts you with these lies, it acts as your blind spot – it makes sure that you don’t see what is right in front of your face.
And when you sell your soul to the devil, it will also tempt others around you with these lies too.
It will use other people as cover if it feels threatened.
6) You become antisocial
A person who sold his soul to the devil does not like people.
He does not even like to be in a crowd and will rather walk alone or stay at home.
This is often accompanied by low self-confidence and even depression since he feels that nobody loves him or wants to be around him.
If you sold your soul to the devil, then you may always want to be alone and spend a lot of time by yourself.
You don’t seem to like human beings or other people in general so you prefer to spend time by yourself.
This is especially true for romantic relationships. It is worth noting that you will sometimes have several girlfriends or boyfriends, but you’ll make it clear that you never want to take that love seriously and prefers not to see them.
Talk about being a jerk.
7) You’re always trying to get something for nothing
When you sell your soul to the devil, You are always trying to get something for nothing.
When you give away your time and your talents and your time and resources, you’re always trying to get something for nothing.
When you do something completely out of your comfort zone to make money, you’re always trying to get something for nothing.
And when you do things that make no sense at all but deliver a lot of results, then it’s always about getting something for nothing.
Why? Because the devil is always willing to pay in one way or another.
And when someone is selling their soul to the devil, they are playing that devious game of the trade where they are putting everything on the line – including their health, their relationships, and their happiness – in service of a dream that may never come true.
So if you want to reap financial benefits from any endeavor, then it’s important that what you’re doing makes sense.
And if it doesn’t make sense from a logical perspective, there’s also the possibility that it’s being done under pretenses – which means it will likely not be profitable in the long run.
8) You will lose the ability to love
A person who sells his soul to the devil does not love anyone. He will even refuse to give love to his family.
His actions do not match any logical explanation, but this is something many people think about selling their souls to the devil.
A person who sells his soul to the devil thinks that emotions do not exist and that it’s better not to feel anything. It is impossible for a person to not feel if he’s truly in love.
When the devil takes your soul, he takes all your love as well. You can’t trust anyone after this process; you will be forced to love only yourself.
As a result, you won’t have any friends or relationships.
In this case, the devil takes away all the positive things from our life and replaces them with a new foundation of negative emotions: suffering.
This is what makes a person who sold his soul feel so bad.
On one hand, for him everything is horrible and he does not like anyone; on the other hand, people around him are often feeling pain and loneliness.
What a sad life.
9) And lastly, you will feel tormenting and tormented
A person who sold his soul to the devil is a victim of constant mental torment and suffering.
This is because he has to realize what he gave up in return for supernatural power, while others have no idea they are tormented by demons in their surrounding environment.
A person who sold his soul to the devil is often being tormented and tortured because of something they did, so this leads them to think that it’s all their fault.
He feels he deserves that punishment and often agrees with the demons’ point of view.
It leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy of thinking negative thoughts and therefore creating more negative energy around him.
This leads to an increased sense of evil around him and sometimes even an increased feeling of anger or hate.
For this reason, people often think they are being tormented by demons when actually the opposite is true.
When it comes to the question of whether you can sell your soul, the answer is a resounding “No.”
In fact, selling your soul to the devil is something that you don’t want no matter what kind of power you think you’ve obtained.
When selling your soul to the devil, your spiritual journey is over as you will be fed with toxic ideas.
Now, listen. Ask yourself these questions.
When it comes to your personal spiritual journey, which toxic habits have you unknowingly picked up?
Is it the need to be positive all the time? Is it a sense of superiority over those who lack spiritual awareness?
Even well-meaning gurus and experts can get it wrong.
The result is that you end up achieving the opposite of what you’re searching for. You do more to harm yourself than to heal.
You may even hurt those around you.
In this eye-opening video, the shaman Rudá Iandé explains how so many of us fall into the toxic spirituality trap. He himself went through a similar experience at the start of his journey.
As he mentions in the video, spirituality should be about empowering yourself. Not suppressing emotions, not judging others, but forming a pure connection with who you are at your core.

Even if you’re well into your spiritual journey, it’s never too late to unlearn the myths you’ve bought for truth!
Love yourself first and everything else falls into place
It may sound conceited or narcissistic to focus on loving yourself first. But it’s not.
The point isn’t to believe you’re better than others or to accept things about yourself that you really do need to change.
It’s about developing a healthy and nurturing relationship with… you!
Loving yourself is about committing to who you are, understanding the many different nuances to your identity, and showing yourself a level of care and intimacy that we usually reserve for other people.
Unfortunately, we’re not taught how to love ourselves from an early age. And we end up caring about what others think of us rather than focusing on what we need at a more fundamental level.
This is why we partnered with Rudá Iandê to produce a free masterclass on transforming our relationships through the practice of self-love.
It’s currently playing on The Vessel (one of our partners) but only for a limited time.
Thousands have attended and told us that the masterclass has completely transformed their relationships for the better.
It’s a must-watch and we couldn’t recommend it more highly.
