9 things I discovered through my spiritual journey

It was Easier to Hang onto to Pain

It had become like an old friend, a sado-masochistic relationship at best, but still familiar. It was much more difficult to put the pain behind me then to find out who I was without it. I mean, I believed that without the pain, I would be nothing…I couldn’t even possibly exist. Can I say that releasing all the pain that I had stored up for years was a surprisingly enlightening and empowering experience that I cannot even explain to you in words. You must actually go through the steps and do it, nothing is better than experience. I felt like I’d shed 100 lbs of waste in 1 hour…when I finally released it, I had never felt lighter in my life. It was as if I was looking through someone else’s eyes and it was the most exhilarating feeling in the universe….at the time, little did I know, more amazing things were yet to come.

Who I am matters

Always and forever, stamped it, no erasies…lol…enough said on that point!!

I have to Forgive those who have Wronged Me

Even though, at times it seemed like the most impossible thing to do. Forgiveness is one of the most powerful healing medicines in the universe...not only the act of forgiving others, but the most difficult forgiveness of all. The act of forgiving yourself for allowing all of this pain and wrong doing to happen in the first place and for carrying it around for so long like luggage.

I am Never Alone

Even when there is no one else around. First of all, the source, god, Allah, Buddha, whatever your belief leans you towards, that higher being is always with you, in you, around you, and beside you…always…and I don’t have to be in some special house to speak to that powerful energy, I can do it anywhere, anytime, anyplace. Secondly, I believe that I have spiritual guides and that they are always with me. I have even named them and I call on them whenever I feel like it, as they are a big part of my life on this plane. You may think that is weird, but hey, I’m never alone and I feel awesome that they are with me, weird or not, it works.

Meditation is Very Important

Meditation gives you the time you need to shut everything else out and reflect. This is when that voice in your gut is heard with much more clarity, but you must allow it and it takes some practice. You must also learn to release your ego, you were not born with it, and therefore you do not need it. It’s a hard habit to break but well worth it.

Loving Myself

Loving myself, being “in love” with me…how in the world can anyone else love me the way I deserve to be loved if I don’t even do it. You must do for yourself what you would accept from the others around you. You want respect? Then you must respect yourself. You want someone to care about your feelings, then guess what? You got it…you must care about your feelings. I’m sure you get my point here.

I am Enough

This lesson was the hardest for me, after the forgiveness lesson, and I actually had to do several past life regressions to get it…I am enough. I am good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, thoughtful enough, spiritual enough, strong enough in every moment of every day. I am enough!! I have much to offer the universe and the souls around me and if I just listen to that voice “the gut”, I will always stay on my path.

The Law of Attraction

We have all heard of this. Our thoughts are energy and what we think goes out into the universe and it becomes reality…that is basically the meaning. So if you think for instance, you deserve bad treatment, then guess what my wonderful soul that is reading this…you will get just that…or if you think you never have enough money, here we go…you know what I’m going to say right…you will never have enough money. You must start putting out there what you want and think from the end. You will hear me talk about this a lot, think from the end and act as if you are there already and the path will become clear. You must believe it, from your “gut”, you must truly believe it….like it’s a done deal.

Never Forget

That others are also living their life, walking their path, or they have veered from it so maybe try to look at those that have lost their way with compassion instead of malice or hate….another big pill to swallow…I get it.
