Keeping yourself from the world
Depending on where you live and who are around you at all times, being balanced as a spiritual being in a human body can be a challenging experience in your everyday life. It can keep you from reaching your potential as the unique individual that you are. Yes, you are a gift to this world! You were born with a purpose that was already planned before you became a human on this wonderful earth of ours. It is the ego and free will that can prevent you from ever reaching your goal. You do have this choice to stay where you are or to evolve beyond your imagination. There really is no middle ground here, you either do it or you don't.
We all live on a different level of awareness. Some people are not spiritual at all and only focus on earthly matters. Others claim that their religious and / or spiritual views are the right one and that yours is wrong. Some are aware that there is more between heaven and earth. All these different levels have their own role to play in the big picture we call life. You will be attracted to be around the ones that align with the vibration you put out. Whatever you focus on most will come to you, this includes people, situations, and things. The people you meet during any phase in your life are there to show you the lessons you need to learn in order to move on to the next level of awareness. The ones that cannot see beyond these lessons often find themselves stuck. They are swimming against the current instead of going with the flow.
There are so many reasons to keep yourself cooped up in your being and never show the world who you really are. The fear of being persecuted for your thoughts and feelings may be one of them that is holding you back. Being spiritual or not, most people don't reach their soul's purpose and mission in life. They are overwhelmed with every day "stuff" and remain unaware that there are different ways to experience life and all the beauty it has to give. Change your perspective and your experience will change.
Days may turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, and before you know it you are at the end of your life. The only way to find your authentic self is to become your authentic self. I knew that if I wanted to move along in my spiritual journey, I would have to find a way to voice myself. And so, this blog was born.
Get to know yourself and unleash the wisdom within
Like everything else, being spiritual and practicing spirituality, is a process. We all have our own set of gifts depending on your soul's experiences. Young souls have much to learn. Old souls have been there and done that but, we all have one thing in common. We are all "light workers", we all share our energy with the ones around us even when we don't realize that we do. It can be a kind word you speak, helping someone across the street or something as simple as a smile. By doing these things we give and receive love, light, and energy.
There is no right or wrong. Remember, you are on your own level of awareness. So, how do you grow in your spirituality? Get to know yourself! You do this by finding a practice that fits you, that makes you excited. Start meditating, it can be as simple as a breathing exercise. Write a journal where you can keep up with your adventures and thoughts. You set yourself free the moment you open up.
Knowledge and education are key in expressing our thoughts and views. When we broaden our perspectives understanding can take place. Read books, articles, do research if you feel like you need to know more. Don't just take someone's opinion as the truth, find it for yourself and then make up your mind. The more you are able to let others be as they are, the more you will be able to reach the wisdom that is inside of you. Let go of judgment, let go of any labels, just be.
Sharing spiritual viewsWhen you get to know yourself better, the need to share your views will become stronger. You can be prone to be judged and ridiculed for what you believe in. Some nations are more open to spirituality, others condemn it. When you are new to this you will most likely loose friends that don't understand your new found perspectives. I've had friends that looked at me like I lost my mind for talking about chakras and energy. I won't even share my opinions with some because I know that they live in a different reality than I do, which is fine. After all, we are all different. The old needs to make way for the new and the Universe will adapt to your surroundings, it is the way she rolls. Join a group to meet like-minded people so you can share your views. This will empower you and make you stronger in your spirituality and stimulates growth.
Set yourself free!
