Media personality Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung has cautioned fans never to let negative energy from external forces come into their space as it may be the main cause of their anxiety. He said he knows this very well as he was tested this week after he suffered a lot of anxiety though everything in his life was aligned.
In a video he shared on Instagram, Somizi explained how even though everything in his life was “good”, something at the back of his mind told him “something bad was going to happen” which led to his anxiety.

It hurts me to see you give up 'Cause the battle is not flesh and blood It's all a delusion to live in confusion So you gotta set your mind on things above Don't forget who's the real enemy And they hate you've been granted victory But still life feels wrong You can't fix it on your own You'll never be free If you live by what you see
He, however, acknowledged that sometimes the anxiety was fed by the energies one was giving power to in their life which, according to him, was the biggest mistake that one could make.
“That’s the biggest mistake I did this week cause I was like, ‘Why am I allowing outside negative energies to come into my space?'”
He then added how a gospel song by Kirk Franklin called Spiritual gave him more perspective that “everything is spiritual”.
“The song says, ‘You lose the battle when you start fighting everything that you see’ and it says the devil really thought they had you down but they are looking at the physical and they can’t have your spirit and they have lost.
“The devil also shakes every time he sees how blessed you are and that you’re being blessed … and that’s my case. I’m like ‘no, Somizi, you’re starting to lose the battle if you want to start fighting everything that you see. Everything is spiritual, I am spiritual.’”
