Here's the basic idea. An awakening can be seen as more of your self coming into your awareness. When this happens, "stuff" gets pushed up to the surface to be looked at, integrated, and the resistance released. This is the nature of this article.
The cause of resistance for many people’s experience with going through a spiritual awakening is either 1) lack of awareness that it is happening or 2) lack of acceptance to what it looks like (i.e., expectations).
The perception that the "spiritual" is something that is "out there" is very confusing. Yes, there are elements of the spiritual self that are invisible to the eye - this is nonphysical. This is where ideas are tangible, where you, as an idea, exist. We tend to believe that something that cannot be seen is not "here." If it is not "here," then it is somewhere "out there." This is logical, although it is flawed logic based on the premise that only that which can be observed is real, or "here." Another...
Procrastination is a big problem for many of us. Life would have been perfect if only people were given tasks they'd like to really work on. And yet, that kind of life comes with a price. They rarely come cheap. In fact, many of the things people enjoy today would not have been possible if people only worked on the things that they want.
Wouldn't it be nice if people only did what they wanted? If you are reading this, there probably is a project or passion that you have been putting off for quite some time now. Whether it is a big life transition or a cleaning project at home, then you might be putting it off for too long.
Whatever your reason may be, remember that ending your procrastination is the key. Not only does it mean finishing the project and getting the job done, but it also significantly reduces stress, fatigue and performance anxiety.
The meaning of procrastinating pertains to the projects, chores,...
This is a question that many people are asking right now. As we shift our individual vibrations, we quickly find ourselves moving in and out of friendships. Some of this is totally natural, and some of this is based on judgment and scarcity. Here are four ideas to consider if you are wanting to build and keep strong relationships.
You will never find someone with the exact mix of views and perspectives that you have. That is impossible because it does not exist, nor is it desirable. We struggle to maintain relationships many times because we hold on to the ideals and judgments of others.
We intended to come here to experience much contrast, not much similarity, such that we will be able to be masters in seeing what, from one perspective, is very different, as ultimately the same thing through the view of love and compassion. i.e. this is the training ground for developing...
Saturn has arrived to Aquarius!
Amidst the panicked swarm of our parallel crises of the global pandemic and total economic collapse, he has begun to run his beta-test.
William Gibson, the science fiction writer, and futurist, puts it well when he says, “...the future is already here. It is just not very evenly distributed.” There are still millions of people on the planet that have yet to be hit by the reality of what is happening. But they will. We all will. With Saturn moving on from the Boneyard, we are going to get a sneak preview of what's to come over the next few years.
Aquarius, a Saturn ruled sign, conjures images of humanity, technology, and innovation first in our imagination, yet it also relates to all the nuanced nodes in a network that connects us all together. Think: the Internet. Many worry it won't be able to handle the overload due to our boredom, but only Saturn knows; Think: Airplanes. Many worry that the airlines are going under and we won't be able...
The first part of you is your perspective. Your decisions that you make are based upon the view that you choose to take. Leading with the heart is the idea of perceiving things as the soul perceives things - from a unified perspective.
The problem is the idea that we must lead with our mind to be "rational," and that we have associated the concept of perceiving things in a unified sense as ungrounded or idealistic or irrational. This is the perspective of not having experienced viewing items from the heart's perspective and not having made critical decisions with that perspective being the dominating perspective.
The solution is to allow the mind to relax into it's the more comfortable role of observing and reacting - not projecting out expected values without regard for the more easeful and many times unseen route.
Neurologically speaking, your heart is your brain as much as your mind is your brain.
As the central organ in your physical body, the heart is the FIRST organ that...
Sounding like you know what you are talking about is as easy as admitting when you don't know what you're talking about.
We tend to "pretend" because we are afraid of what someone else thinks. It's important to realize that we are ALWAYS playing a role; we are always performing a character. The more that we judge ourselves because of the nature of the character we are playing at that time, the more inauthentic we feel.
The solution is to accept that we are always performing a role, and as you bring more of yourself into that role, the more you will sound (and look) like you know what you are talking about.
Boom. Wake up. You're in a simulated reality, right now. You've got an avatar, and you can express that avatar however you'd like. Some things feel better than others, and you'll use that feeling to determine better what that character evolves into.
This is not far from the truth.
Where we see resistance in ourselves is when we feel like what we are...
Author Elizabeth Stone said, "Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."
As spiritual parents, it is our job to do much more than potty train, pack bag lunches, and choose a discipline style; we recognize that our children come to this life with their unique spiritual inspiration to express. In a world full of pressure and distraction, how can we support the spiritual awakening of our children? Here are five guidelines to get you started.
1) Follow your child's spiritual inspiration: If you want to help your child maintain their innate connection to spirit, you must support them in following their intuition. With young children, this includes a wide range of cues. If your child feels uncomfortable with a specific person or place, respect that. In so doing, you teach them to trust their gut instincts and maintain their connection to their inner voice.
Their inspiration may...
This SUPER Full Moon is giving us exactly what we need at this time.
Ever after that one sentence, I know many of you are feeling skeptical lol.
"Vic, are you living under a rock brother?
Have you been watching what's going on?"
There's a great book I just finished reading called "The Go-Giver."
One of the main characters, Pindar, would always say…
"Looks can be deceiving… and most of the time… they are."
A couple of years ago, I took my family to this nature preserve in Las Vegas.
There was a nice little stream, lush vegetation (rare for Las Vegas), and a beautiful assortment of colorful flowers.
As my family and I were riding our bikes along the path, we noticed an area that didn't look so good.
In fact, you could easily tell there had been a fire, and most of the trees and plants in this particular area were black and dead.
There was a sign, however, that stated…
What is spiritual awakening? A spiritual awakening is when a person's attitude towards the world and life in general, shifts and perhaps changes forever.
But what does spiritual mean, and how does it relate to a spiritual awaking? Spiritual means something that speaks to your soul or psyche that isn't necessarily material or physical. So, simply put, a spiritual awakening is a process of change in your beliefs or within your spiritual life.
People usually live their lives however they want to, or however they were taught. They have their values and use them as their guide to living, and there isn't necessarily anything wrong with that. But, often there comes a time when something happens, and a person’s psychic awakening is triggered. While some people may be lucky to go through it without pain or sorrow, many have to suffer first before they can see the light.
Spiritual transformation is sometimes associated with discomfort because it can put a person in...
What if you find that special someone who you wanted to spend the rest of your life with? Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a job you love that also helps you achieve financial independence? Learning how to manifest what our heart truly desires is a gift, and if you could have this gift, wouldn’t you want to possess it?
What if you could finally realize your purpose, find your inner joy, and feel fulfilled from the inside? It is your heart’s innermost desires that help you become the person that you are today. Although positive affirmations from the people around you can help you find a sense of stability, it is through grounding through meditation that will truly make all the difference.
All that is required to manifest everything that you desire is a quiet moment of meditation. Find some time every day where you can find some inner peace. This process goes beyond what your conscious mind is telling you. The Law of Attraction is activated...
