I’ve had chronic arthritis since I was 19 years old. The arthritis was bad in my 20s but the worst was yet to come, just as I began my spiritual journey.
Many painful truths had to be acknowledged. It sounds very dramatic and terrible… and it was. The lie I lived was exposed to find my Divine spark. I’m not going to sugar-coat it, the Spiritual path was cruel, devastating, rewarding and peaceful. All the wonderful and terrible things at once and I would not change a thing.
I found myself anxious, depressed, challenged by external influences, challenged by my own physical body, challenged by my own mental processes, anything that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I transformed that energy into healing. No-one did it for me. I wanted them to. I was angry and I wanted the teachers and healers to take it all away like they said they could. I was living as the victim and had to transform to the warrior.
You are your own healer. You have the power. You have the power to make the changes. You have the power to decide you want something better than what you have. You have the power to decide what is best for you. You have the power to make mistakes and amazing discoveries.
It’s not about working it out all at once. Decide! Decide that life has to be better than this. Tap into the power of the Spirit through meditation, tarot, reiki for example. Use the feeling you have in those moments to focus on your ‘Big Picture’. This is how I learned to trust my intuition, my guides and my Spiritual path.
Be prepared to change course! Using your Big Picture focus you have a sense of what is possible. You will get stuck, you will be confused, you will be stubborn. Be flexible. I always sat in the FEELING of my Big Picture when I was confused. What it LOOKS like will change as you go with the flow. The FEELING is important, it is your ANCHOR.
And you know what? I began to heal… I healed my Soul and I healed my life. My body still carries the arthritis. I don’t like it but I understand its true purpose.
Teachers, healers and gurus are there for guidance and support. They work beside you to find your personal relationship with your Body, Mind and Spirit. You will encounter loving and not so loving people. Each and every one of them are support, cheerleaders, or motivation.
Self-awareness is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Knowing yourself and being honest with yourself is the only way to break those old patterns and begin to live your best life.
My new program The Conscious Mystic Collective provides the perfect space to explore your personal relationship with Spirit.
It’s time to become The Warrior.
