Guidance for thirsty spiritual seekers...
The path of a spiritual awakening is a pathless path. Its a journey of immense growth and of death. The image I’m getting is of Ourborous. Its a greek mythical creature who is in a circular position and has its tail in its mouth portraying renewal and the cycle of life. The name originates from within the Greek language; (oura) meaning "tail" and (boros) meaning "eating", thus "he who eats the tail".
To me this represents what goes around comes around. You can’t have one without the other as we are always in constant motion of out with the old and in with the new.
You will die many times here in this life, and will continue to purify and will be re-born over and over again to return back to your original child like self, without fear, worry or limitations. Having said this there isn’t an indefinate goal or a finish line…its a journey!
Below is a general overview of some things that have made a big difference in my own life. Im sharing that which I know and hope you can resonate and can incorporate them in your own life if you don't already.
One of my teachers taught me something quite simple. Observe without judgment. This is about how we observe others as well. That which we see in others, we see in ourselves.
We tend be our own hardest critics. Think of the all times we talk down to ourselves and put our selves last. You cannot reach your interior castle if you treat yourself like you’re worthless and expect to receive gifts from source unless you truly and deeply start accepting yourself. This process begins with being honest or I like to say ‘coming undone’. It can take years, and requires lot of looking within, but there are modalities that can help you get to the core of the issue fairly quickly. Thats the beauty of living in this day and age, if you're ready and open it doesn't need to take 20 years to figure it out alone.
I am learning to love myself more and more and it starts with looking in reverse, having deep compassion for yourself and seeing how brave and how far you have come. Its all starts with love and being honest and of course no judgement. Humans have a tendency to always look at the negatives first. This doesn't help. So lets start trying another method and see the positive changes.
What are three things that come up when you look in the mirror? Be honest. This is a good gage on what you have to start working on.
It takes awareness and a lot of work to be able to flow with the waves and allow whatever is coming up emotionally or physically to pass. When we have resistance and are trying to control the issue and judge rather than observe, these emotions get trapped in our bodies and will cause blocks in your energy system. If left idle, these can often manifest in pain and dis-ease. The key here is to allow and not have attachment.
If you get caught in a negative or heavy situation, allow your feelings to surface and see which part of your body you are feeling them in. Without judgment and playing the story in your head feel into that area. Allow, and it will release.
There is a level of inner surrender that is required once you ask the universe for support. Its literally getting out the way and trusting! As you seek and ascend, your strength and limits will be tested. You will be faced to look deep within your core and make peace with the good, the bad, and the ugly as they say. These words themselves are so harsh yet are used in our daily language. What if we didn’t judge using this words? Words hold a lot of power which gets programmed into our cells. What if we just observed when feelings or old memories surfaced? What if we stopped using the concept of right and wrong as a gage and just lived in the now? We are all here to be better versions of ourselves and learn from one another. As one gets confident with themselves and builds a level of inner trust we begin to understand and realize everything that is happening is for our higher good and happening on purpose for us to expand our consciousness and navigate this realm without having multiple attachments (can be psychic hooks), old stories, and out dated child hood programming holding us back.
Love and light,
