As I've been attending various healing ceremonies and weekends of late I thought I'd write a guide for anyone seeking to engage in some deeper spiritual work on themselves. Often people don't know where to start or what to look for so I thought I'd give a few pointers that may be of use.
I could actually finish this post by just saying : Trust your gut, but I'll elaborate a little.
Follow your instinct, you may feel its time to engage in something light, that makes you feel good and enjoy life, perhaps yoga or meditation, some kind of spiritual discussion group. Go for it, get out there, there really is so much to choose from these days both online and locally to open our minds to a new way of viewing the world. Meditation many think is about being blissed out, I don't think it is, I've written about the challenge that is meditation here, a realistic view.
This is the second of three parts on reality. Read Part 1 There Is No Spoon - How To Manipulate Reality here.
To carry on from part one, we may struggle with some heavy experiences in our lives such as deaths, accidents, abuse etc. It's not easy to take responsibility for these things and it takes time and regular reminders as its very easy to slip into blame or victim mode.
A couple of points I am exploring regarding those heavy and dark experiences we've had:
It's not that others are not real, it's that what you experience is made out of your own energy in your reality. - Bashar
This is the first in a three part series on what reality potentially is, from a truly practical perspective, forget philosophy and spiritual theory and pondering, what the f%*k can we do to actually get free, to improve our lives, to heal? That is the purpose of these three pieces.
The first step to improving any area of our lives, changing anything we are unhappy with or that needs adjustment is taking responsibility for what we don’t like. The more areas of our lives we can take responsibility for, the more power we have to make changes, and thus improve our quality of life. Makes sense.
Talk to most spiritual people and they’ll agree, sure, we create our reality. Start asking questions and you’ll soon be told that maybe they have created some good kids, but they don’t know why they misbehave in school, or they created the great job, but not the asshole co-worker, or the lovely house but not the central heating which continues to cause problems, or the traffic on the way home from work, or the war in the middle East. You see where I'm going.
How about everything that enters your life, I mean absolutely every single thing, is a mirror of your consciousness.
