Walking a Spiritual Path

Nature Path

What is spirituality?

It depends who you ask. Spirituality means different things to different people. I define spirituality as awareness/consciousness of a universal presence working in and through our lives. It is experienced as a sense of belonging to something greater, timeless, and infinite in possibility. It is the means through which we feel a deep sense of purpose and connection to all of life.

What is a spiritual path?

Truth-centered/heart-centered path and process of empowerment.

What is the best way to walk a spiritual path?

There is no right or wrong way to walk a spiritual path; it is a deeply personal path that is influenced by your values, beliefs, trust, experiences, introspection, reflection, and practices. It is an internal process of discerning what is true for you and living from that truth.

Truth is the light that guides your way.

Are you seeking a deeper sense of purpose and direction for your life? Feel stuck in one or more areas of your life? Feel less than confident about making changes to your life? Are you ready to create a more purposeful and fulfilling life?

Revealing Hidden Parts of Yourself

JOURNAL ENTRY: I realized over the break that I am living a double life.

I have kept a journal most of my life. I have found it to be an invaluable tool for recording my dreams, clarifying my thoughts, and processing my feelings. It has also helped me to see how much I have grown over time.

As a part of the writing process for Be True to You, I reviewed some of my older journals. I was looking for themes in terms of what I was journaling about as well as statements that were related to breakthroughs and turning points. One of the statements that I found during the process inspired this post. I made a note in my journal that I felt like I was living a double life. I was driven by a need to be accepted and, in the process, not openly sharing the part of me that loves to explore a variety of topics and finds inspiration in many things.

At the time of my journal entry, I was exploring spirituality (through a different lens), the Divine Feminine, and symbolic systems such as astrology. My interest in these topics was real, however, I was not comfortable sharing what I was exploring because the topics were outside of “normal” conversations within my circle of friends and family. I did not want to be seen as “eccentric” or as a “new ager”. In reality, I was judging myself and assuming what others might think about me. I noted in my journal that I was out of integrity by not sharing that part of me. I made a conscious decision to stand in my truth and start sharing my interests with others; not only for my personal integrity, but as a way for them to get to know me at a deeper level.

For the most part, it seems the more authentic I am with others, the more authentic they are with me. Being authentic and vulnerable opens the door for deeper and more meaningful relationships.

Is there a part of you that you are hiding/not sharing with friends and family because you are afraid of disapproval, rejection, or judgment? How might you begin to bring that part of you forward?

Living from the Inside Out

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.

Carl Jung

Do you feel lost, confused, or stuck in the past? Are you allowing others to define you or direct your path? If so, you are living from the outside in–disconnected from your true self and power within.

A new way of living begins when you choose to live from the heart and guidance within.  Your heart is your spiritual core, center of truth, inner compass, and guide to living your highest potential.

You invoke the wisdom of your heart when you ask yourself questions like “What is true for me?”  “What is true about my life?” “What do I value most in my life?” “What is best for my life?” Your heart intuitively knows the answers.

Clarity is power and it comes from within.

Take the first step:

Be still. Be quiet. Be open to inner guidance.

Thirty-Day Challenge:

Take time each day to listen to the wisdom of your own heart.
