I’ve been a metaphysician for over half my life. I keep exploring the different expressions of metaphysics and my spiritual awareness keeps changing.
As it should.
My spiritual exploration gives me powerful experiences
Metaphysics opened up the world to me. It freed me to explore all versions of spirituality. And I have. I loved developing the power of affirmative prayer in the Center for Spiritual Living. I love the concepts I learned in Taoism – unfolding, mindfulness. I love the ideas I get from the Sufi Poet Rumi. I love the concepts of The Village of Nothingness, The Unnerved Block, the Nowhere That I Came From. And now I have shamanism.
When you go exploring in your inner world, you begin to make aware choices that are more aligned with who you want to be in your own life, how you want to shape it. You go within for guidance and support, and you get answers.
Increase your daily spiritual life
Whatever form your spirituality takes, do more of it. Every day. Several times a day. Do conscious work in your inner realms. Listen to your inner urges, your inner voices. Learn to journey and ask questions and learn to interpret the metaphorical guidance of the helping spirits. Then move back into your life with a raised vibration, a deeper self-awareness, and make more conscious choices about how you show up in the world.
Do deep inner work – daily
Create some sort of daily inner work ritual to begin your day. To begin mine, I drum and sing and I have a whole sequence of discovery and affirmative steps I find meaningful.
Throughout my day, I work to increase my ability to express a quality – like mindfulness or unfolding, inclusiveness, and empathy, just plain radiating light.
These take practice, a lot of conscious daily practice, to bring them into active involvement in your life. I’m pretty good at unfolding. I am getting better at mindfulness. I journey daily and that expands and deepens my inner awareness. I am progressing. Because I practice. My spiritual practice is active throughout my day.
Your spiritual life can help you see things differently
When you cultivate your inner life, the outer world begins to change. For instance, the more I focus on increasing my own radiance, the more radiance I see in others around me and together we become lighter and more illumined and share that with the world around us.
Shine light. Be light. That’s an easy place to begin.
Know what you believe and why you believe it
As people in our world become more vocal in expressing their opposing views, we have the opportunity to examine what we think and believe and, more importantly, why we believe what we do. Does our thinking need to change, to unfold, to become more inclusive? Probably. Can we see a situation from several points of view?
Being in light is an incredible common denominator. If I learn to see others as light, in light, I see our sameness more than our differences.
But it may take some practice. It’ll take working on my own light so I can see the light in others. I must learn to resonate with it. And connect with it.
We have choices
I feel much safer when I work on radiating more light into the world. I feel that I’m participating for the higher good and that my inner light work is making a difference, raising the consciousness of not only me but those who come across my pulsating, ever increasing, radiating light are also affected.
Your spiritual life will raise your vibration and increase the radiance of your inner life.
Work on it. Immerse yourself in it. Be light!
