10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs

Wow! It's 2015 already, and it's time to finalize the list of most popular spiritual blogs for 2014. I originally wrote this spiritual blog post with a list for the blog posts that were most popular based on the amount of the Web traffic my site received in 2012. Now, for the third year, I'll take a look at what caught people's eyes the month for 2014.

Some of the most popular from 2012 and 2013 continue to make the list, but will they all? I'm sure that you may recognize some of these because if they were popular, it's because you were reading them. For newer readers, these lists may be a welcome compilation to get you started discovering all the content on this spiritual awakening site.

10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs of 2015

Obviously, I don't have a list yet, but check back some time later. I like to put in a list of the current favorites by mid-year. And if you'd like to get a few spiritual posts moving in the right direction, here are two that I'd love to see get popular for 2015:

Identify, Accept, Embrace, and Let Go

Limiting Beliefs and Core Beliefs

10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs of 2014

Let's start off with some honorary mentions. At number 12 is a newbie: Energy Sickness and Feeling Drained Energetically. This was written in 2014, and it grabbed lots of people's attentions. Perhaps it'll crack the top 10 in 2015. At number 11, Chronic Fatigue and Spiritual Awakening couldn't quite catch "The Dark Night," but obviously, this is a really common issue people can have when going through spiritual shifts.

10 The Dark Night of the Soul

This is a popular phrase that people use a lot when things aren't going their way in a fairly significant manner. In this spiritual awakening blog post, I help people understand what is really going on here and how to let go of ego preferences that are misconstruing the change happening in your life or which are creating extremely challenging and/or unhealthy situations.

The Process of Releasing Pain From Your Energy Body

This is a regular on the top ten list. I still highly recommend it to help people have a better sense of how healing and spiritual growth work in everyday terms.

Opening a Closed Heart

Here's another long-timer, but then again, most of the top 10 are long-timers. Opening a closed heart is so important. It's how we can feel ourselves, enjoy love, and figure out things that don't feel good to us. When our hearts are closed, we feel nothing and can subsequently get caught up in a lot of unhealthy situations because we can't feel how bad they are for us.

7 5 Signs of a Spiritual Awakening 

People want to know what's going on with them, so this post helps people understand what awakening is really about. These signs are what I call primary signs, the fatigue and other things are secondary signs. If you aren't melting into love and clarity, then being really tired could easily be something not related to awakening.

Understanding How to Hold Space 

Holding space is a beautiful gift to offer ourselves and others. This post continues to help thousands of people each year appreciate and cultivate this important practice.

What Is a Spiritual Awakening?

Moving up from number 8 to number five makes this blog one of the big movers and shakers on the list from earlier in the year. But, of course, it's not that surprising given the context of this Website. In 2012, it held down the number 2 spot.

Facing Your Ego's Death

To be clear, ego death is the death of the unconscious ego. We'll always have an ego, but the conscious ego is simply a clear lens to help us filter through billions of stimuli and external and internal data we encounter so that we can make sense of living our lives.

How Long Does a Spiritual Awakening Take?

Ah! When do I get off this bus? I get this question a lot. It's no wonder why this is the third most popular topic on my blog.

Spiritual Awakening 2015, 2016, 2017 and So On

This post gets its title updated yearly. Next year it'll start with 2016 and 2015 will be removed. Ultimately, there is no grand new meaning to each year (the new year is an arbitrary date after all). But we can choose any year and any moment to be the one to embrace our spirituality more deeply.

1 10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs

What can I say? This is a popular blog. It beat out the runner up more than twice over, so thanks to everyone for enjoying it!

I encourage you to read on to past years to see other blogs that didn't make the list this year.

10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs of 2013

10 Understanding Spiritual Sexuality

This post has dropped a few places since last year. It is actually a compilation of spiritual sexuality posts. I tend to disappoint people because they still think of sexuality solely in terms of relationship with another. While sex with another is stupendous fun, it is even more so when you truly know your own sexual energy and space. This blog helps people get started in that space of inner knowing.

9 Healing Desires: The Differences Between Urges and the Need for Fulfillment

This post has been hugely popular in the past, and while it didn't make the list last year, it's back in the saddle again. In this post, I help people to understand the difference between the natural arising of an urge (like wanting to eat) and the need for a specific kind of fulfillment (like I need to eat a hamburger to feel good).

8 The Process of Releasing Pain From Your Energy Body

I'm really glad that you've made this a popular post. I put a lot of time, energy, and focus in it to do my best to distill what it can feel like to release pain from our energy bodies. Since this isn't exactly common knowledge, I'm glad to see it growing in popularity to help many of you better understand the subtle levels of your own nature.

7 Opening a Closed Heart

This is another oldie, but goodie that seems to come around and pick up in popularity every so often. It is pretty much what it says it is. There's also a video at the bottom of the post about the topic that you can check out.

6 Spiritual Awakening 2014, 2015, 2016, and So On

This was originally "Spiritual Awakening 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and So On." But clearly, those first two years are long gone. Nonetheless, the point remains the same: awakening is here and now.

What Is a Spiritual Awakening?

Dropping down from number 2 is "What Is a Spiritual Awakening?" Personally, I'm glad that people are trying to understand my definition as well as creating their own. When you start to look at your definitions, then you start to understand your world and how you create meaning in it.

4 Letting Go of Resistance

I love this line, "Awakening comes because at some point in time, you fully let go." When we let go of our stories and all the resistance we have to how life is, we naturally drop into ourselves. The more deeply we release, the more profoundly connected we may become to ourselves and to all of consciousness.

Understanding How to Hold Space

Jumping way up from number 10 in 2012 is this post. I'm really happy that this spirituality blog post has been so popular. I think learning how to hold space for each other is an essential tool for all relationships because we learn how to respect others and look and listen with non-judgment and love.

Facing Your Ego's Death

Moving up from number 3 is "Facing Your Ego's Death." For many of you shifting in awakening, you will be watching aspects of your old ego self dissolve. At times, it can feel like you are dying, but this is why it is important to dis-identify with the ego self. The more you can see that an old way of acting and seeing the world is dying, the more at peace you will be during the process.

How Long Does a Spiritual Awakening Take?

Holding strong at number 1 once again for 2013 is the question, "How much longer do I have to stay on this bus?!"

Indefinitely. You chose it. But the initial shift will come to a resting rhythm. You will find that life still shifts and changes, and you will change with it. But the initial part does come to a completion. Click on the above link to find out more about that.

10 Most Popular Spirituality Blogs of 2012

Read on to see what posts used to be popular, and maybe you'll bring them back around for 2014.

10 Understanding How to Hold Space

Well, you already know what I have to say about this one. For the posts already mentioned above, I've left the link, but without additional commentary.

9 Spiritual Awakening Signs Subside: You Come Fully to Life

This post was written for those who want to know if the inner shifting ever will end. During the initial shift to embody your light, you may never feel stable or safe. Everything is being churned up and cleared out so that you can be a clear vessel for your own light. But as with all transitions, this too will pass.

8 5 Signs of a Spiritual Awakening

I'm careful about talking about "signs" of a spiritual awakening, so whenever I do, I try to distill it down to the essential signs, which typically are deep senses of love and service to yourself and others.

7 Understanding Spiritual Sexuality

6 Soulmates and Other Myths that Bind Our Love

Ah, soulmates. This is one of the ideas of perfect love, although lately the term "twin flames" is trying to replace it. Relationships are beautiful. However, true beauty in love comes with complete and total self-love. From that space, having a soulmate isn't quite so important. Click on the above link to see what else I talk about with that one.

5 Awakening the Mind: The Intellect Knows Its Place, The Internal Waters Still

I think this one got popular partially because of StumbleUpon traffic and partially because people just want to know that its possible for their minds to finally quiet down. So, yes. It is possible, and you don't have to wait around for an awakening if you want this. You simply start to go within and pay attention to your thoughts instead of getting lost in their stories or fighting them.

4 2012, the Global Awakening, and the Apocalypse

 Egad! Are we all still here? Did we survive the Apocalypse? When you read this spiritual post, you'll see that how I view these "events" is very different than the commonly accepted ideas.
