Webinar: Spiritual Awakening and New Sensitivities

As people awaken or generally shift on their spiritual paths, they often have new sensitivities to life. In truth, this is part of the un-numbing and re-sensitization process. People have been so numb and out of touch with themselves that they can barely feel. If this is your general state of living, then that lack of sensitivity becomes "normal." There are all sorts of ways where people are trying to "tough it out" and push down emotions. Those behaviors reduce and minimize our natural sensitive nature. So when we get re-sensitized to life again, it seems like it is a new thing and that life has been cranked up to a much higher volume. It hasn't. You were just "deaf" before.

In letting go of old unhealthy behaviors as we shift, we often go through a transitional period of increased sensitivities that generally require us to make adjustments in our lives. These adjustments include not using drugs, depressants, and stimulants as much if at all. When we are no longer numb, a lot of entertainment and other activities are simply too overwhelming. It's like going to a rock concert with earplugs, a headband over your ears, and earmuffs for most of your life. If you take off all three, the music goes from being comfortable and fun to unbearably loud. There are lots of parts of life where this is true for people, and this does not even include the highly sensitive people.

When I talk about sensitivities in this webinar, I'm going to be talking about some of the new energy sensitivities people have, but I'll also be discussing:
  • Recovering emotional sensitivities
  • Discovering your physical sensitivities
  • Getting comfortable with your mental sensitivities and abilities to see life clearly

A Spiritual Appetizer: The Trap of Spiritual Ideas

Words and ideas are tools tell help us express ourselves on the spiritual path. They should not be our masters and constrict our ability to understand life or ourselves. The spiritual path shows us that words and ideas simply point to things. They are not the things that they point to. I can write about "oneness," but that word is not the totality of oneness. It is an idea.

Too often people get stuck hanging onto ideas or searching for the best ones. This is particularly problematic on the spiritual path. Many religions and spiritual traditions tell people what to believe and what to do. In truth, this is what most people want. But if you're reading this today, I assume that you want a greater level of inner freedom and do not want to be tethered to the ideas of others. To do that means that you have to untie yourself from your own ideas.

Because ideas and beliefs will not keep you safe. They very easily become obstacles to embracing the truth since people want to believe in stories and fantasies and can actively deny the truth. Fortunately, the truth requires you to believe nothing at all. Embracing the truth simply means allowing yourself and all of life to be as it is.

Spiritual Small Bites: Doubt

Doubt is one of the great absurdities of the ego. I'm not talking about doubting ideas and conjecture. There are lots of ways that questioning the words of another are important with so many people speaking falsities and half-truths.

No, I'm talking about when doubt arises in the face of what you are actually experiencing. I'm talking about how people doubt their own truth and their own pain.

For instance, a powerful memory re-emerges, and the person doesn't want to believe it. When someone remembers repressed childhood trauma, it often upsets their ideas of their family life, who their parents and siblings are, and who they are. Simply, this memory doesn't fit in with their ego's story, so they try to turn a blind eye to it when emotions and even physical pain are erupting to tell them that the event really happened. Or a difficult situation is happening right now, and the person doubts that this situation is real. "No, I can't be in a car accident." But you are! That doubt and denial is getting in the way of addressing it. Or perhaps it's a psychic experience occurs that doesn't fit the ego's idea of what is possible to perceive, and doubt comes in once more to deny the truth of your experience.

On the spiritual path, we learn to let go of doubt and simply see what is. If memories or difficult experiences arise that upset us, we need to accept them to engage with them with clarity and love. Otherwise, we get stuck and trapped in our spiritual growth, and we continue to suffer.

Webinar: Natural Spiritual Growth and the Calming of Awakening

The intensities of the initial spiritual awakening can be many and destabilizing, and that's to be expected when people have been living lives so cut off from their truth, kindness, and love. The rush of your own divine energy in the space created by awakening takes many off guard, shaking up their whole world. Most just want to get this whole thing over with. Very few embrace it, but to those who do, a great gift may be in store. It is the gift of coming into your natural spiritual growth.

Your natural spiritual growth would be what we all would do if we had a few spiritual tools growing up and simply allowed ourselves to flourish in whatever direction love most strongly took us. When awakening arises, it's like all the growth energy that has been dammed up bursts forth. We try to do decades of growing all at once, and that's exhausting!

But as the flood waters recede, we find that there is an inner flow that keeps moving if we have embraced this spiritual rebirth. As such, we continue changing, and as we come into natural growth (and not a spiritual plateau where we try to hold onto some new identity or avoid our next wave of inner changes), we can find an inner ease that keeps us moving and changing even as we remain connected to the timeless self that is changeless.

A Spiritual Awakening Morsel: The Awakened Turning Point

The awakened turning point is a sacred moment when someone moves from being in resistance to their inner growth to embracing it. It often comes as someone finally has enough perspective on who they were to see the depth of unhappiness or out-right misery that they'd been living in. This is vital because most of resistance people place against their own growth and letting go of their ego comes from the assumption that they're "losing" something important and will somehow be hurt. Seeing how much hurt they'd been in undermines this perceived "threat."

Additionally, the turning point also tends to come as the person realizes how much more loving, at peace, healed, and wise they now are because of all these shifts and growth. So the ego threat that you're going to be hurt by the spiritual path is now seen as a lie, and depending on how deeply in your truth you are, it can become truly laughable.

This clarity and perspective creates the awakened turning point. The person realizes that this path and awakening truly are benefiting them beyond their wildest hopes and dreams. As a result, they whole-heartedly embrace their shifts because they may sense how many other hidden issues are still impeding their growth. At this turning point, you no longer want anything limiting your love. Thus, you pass from the dispelling the darkness phase into your embracing their light phase.

Spiritual Sound Bites: Alive and Natural Relationships

For the next couple of months, I'll be scaling back the length of my posts into these short spiritual sound bites. I'm focusing most of my writing energy on writing a second book, so for the time being, I hope you enjoy the plethora of spiritual awakening posts that are already on this site as well as these quick spiritual thoughts.

Alive and Natural Relationships

As you open up to your own inner life and vitality, you will notice from time to time that some relationships are particularly hard to define, but also are powerful, flowing, and deeply connective. They are, in fact, alive. An alive relationship is a natural relationship; the two terms are synonymous (although I am still figuring out my terminology on this). The relationship grows and moves in its own way with just a little commitment from both parties.

Because most people aren't used to this aliveness, people can be quick to put it into an old ego idea and call it romantic, friendship, this or that, or discount it entirely because it is so new and feels so different. But the more you open up and step out of old behavioral patterning, the more you're going to engage with people who don't fit any of your descriptions.

So go slowly.

Explore the aliveness with the other person/people and let go of judgment. You'll spend quite a bit of time in uncertainty and are likely to have your fear of the unknown exposed. But if you and the other person are sincere, the relationship will show you what it is and grow and evolve in ways that you might never have experienced before.
