Starting Out

The spiritual journey has different phases, and so we begin like caterpillars.
Welcome to my starting out section. The following posts are here to help you build your spiritual practice so that you become more conscious of yourself and the Divine Truth in all of life. This section is great for someone who is a spiritual beginner as well as for those of you who have experienced a lot on the spiritual path but are just getting to know my teaching and are filling in some gaps in your spiritual learning.

Before you get going, here are two blog posts dedicated to helping you sort through all the posts on this spiritual awakening blog.

If you'd like an ebook on starting the spiritual path as well as getting to know yourself on multiple levels (which can be helpful at any time on all of our paths), you can buy my ebook on this link:

Everyday Spirituality: Cultivating an Awakening.

Getting Started on Your Spiritual Path

I really want to emphasize that all spiritual paths are sacred. We are all different, and we are all journeying towards different things in life. While ultimately we are all one, there is an importance in honoring our unique divine intelligence within us and how it is moving us individually. To that end, this section is aimed to help you listen to your intuition/inner knowing as you build your spiritual practice.

A regular spiritual practice tends to be key for most people to break out of unhealthy patterns and ignorance. In committing yourself to regular meditation and other spiritual practices, you can enrich your life and deal with adversity all the better.

Here are some posts to start to give you a firmer grounding in what the spiritual path even is.

Developing Your Spiritual Morality

The beautiful thing about spiritual truths is that they lead us towards certain morals. One spiritual truth is that we are all interconnected; we are all one. From such truths, we find ourselves realizing the importance of morals like being kind and honest. The more you develop on the spiritual path, the more it is only natural to discover your own spiritual morality.

In this time of technological advance, however, it is also important to consider the new questions and challenges technology poses to us and how that relates to morality. We need to ask ourselves what is the morality of what we develop technologically and how we use it. In this vein of thinking, I wrote this blog post:

A New Morality in the Age of Technology

SPIRITUALITY BLOGS ABOUT HEALING

For many, the only real healing that can address their wounds is spiritual healing. In this collection of spirituality blog posts, I offer tips and ideas for healing on the different levels within us.

Of particular importance are healing things like trauma and abuse. The below blog directly discusses what it can take to achieve true and complete healing of sexual abuse:

SPIRITUALITY BLOGS FOR DEEPENING YOUR PRACTICE & CREATING SPACE FOR AWAKENING

Once you've established a practice, it's helpful to have some guidance in terms of deepening into it. For instance, meditation is meditation, but you can go into all kinds of different depths with it depending on your focus. This and other tools are suggested to help you create space for whatever chooses to arise within you.
