On Dec. 30, Marshall shared a since-deleted Instagram post that read, “As I cross over tonight, I hope that you follow all that I have taught you in the past. My shackles have fallen. I’m free.”
While some were concerned about what the cheerleader may have been implying with his words, Marshall’s follow-up post illuminated the intention behind his words. The 22 year old posted a slideshow showing multiple images relating to spirituality as well as comments from followers who also confirmed Marshall was fine. The final part of the slideshow showed a video of Marshall smiling.
“Everyone who knows me, knows that I have been on a spiritual Journey and doing a lot of shadow work with figuring out my souls purpose on this earth. Some people ask me how do I do it which is why I post about it a lot. I know my post may have come as a shock. I am in no pain only a blissful feeling of gratitude,” he wrote in the lengthy post. “For everyone who has changed me for the better in this life. I started my journey my first year at Navarro and ran a lot from internal trauma. When I said the ‘shackles fell off’ it was more of a feeling of the restraint certain things had on me in order to elevate into my higher self. When I said ‘ascension’ people who know about spiritual journey knows it’s you moving forward and higher into your purest form of self.”
