7 Signs That You May Be Spiritually Bypassing
The road to a spiritual life is different for everyone, but spiritual bypassing is a potential hazard for all. Sometimes our spiritual journey can feel so slow-going that to think that we go too fast seems a far-fetched idea. Some spiritual awakenings can feel like a blissful catapult into a new mind-blowing paradigm where nothing feels the same anymore. Regardless of the route your journey takes, the skipping of important turns happens far more often than you might think.
Are you a STARSEED?
Do you feel a longing for a far away home?
Do you feel inherently comfortable with topics like outer space beings, altered states of consciousness, or metaphysics?
Do you experience feeling "different" from most others?
Do you often find human behavior to be perplexing and counter-intuitive, "Why do they do that?!"
Do you seem to have an extrasensory awareness - seeing through situations and people to a deeper knowing?
If these questions touched on a deep inner knowing YOU MIGHT BE A STA…
How to SPIRITUALLY AWAKEN
We each have life experiences that start to (or attempt to) awaken us at different points in our lifetimes.
Our own Soul has laid out a timeline for these awakenings to occur.
Though we often experience these as spontaneous events, they are well crafted and synchronized to take us along our intended spiritual path.
Sometimes these experiences stand out as “special”, like noticing that our Spirit Guides are speaking to us, finding profound spiritual inspiration while being in nature …
What is your Vibration Level?
What is your unique Vibrational Frequency? What does your energy SAY? And what does that mean in terms of what you attract?
We each have an energetic vibrational frequency that we emit, which fluctuates. Some like to call it an Aura or a Light-Body. It's typically invisible to the limited human eye. But, Empaths and Sensitives FEEL the energy streaming from others, even if they aren't aware that THAT is what they are picking up!
I always think along these lines when I am in a therapy session…
Ask a friend survey
This is one of my all time favorite writing exercise for Self-exploration and ultimately, Self-compassion and Self-love.
It's the ASK-A-FRIEND SURVEY, by Danielle LaPorte in her fabulous book, The Fire Starter Sessions.
Not realizing our own self-worth, our own gifts and value is an epidemic in women, at least in my therapy room!
Sometimes dislodging a poor self-concept requires the candid truths from our most trusted allies. To take this quiz you'll need to bravely call on that one soul, tha…
Energy Vampires & The Empath
I don't like the term "energy vampire", but I know folks search for it online because us sensitive types can pick up E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G around us. The good, the bad, and the downright icky!
Some people are born more “porous” to the energy of the people, animals, plants, or even inanimate objects around them. It can be part of our life purpose to do so. It allows us to “read” the energy at play, which can provide a wealth of information. It can allow us to understand others and situations …
Are you a teacher avoiding the spot-LIGHT?
Whether you are a professional teacher or not; whether you are aware of it or not, you may be here on Earth to be a teacher to others. Some people have a sense that they are meant to “teach” but retract from that light shining on them because it feels much too risky. Claiming you know “something” and standing up and getting noticed does leave you more vulnerable to:
And NOBODY likes that!
Most of us are actually teachers in some fo…
"Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure..."
A favorite poem to many of us Soul Seekers is one written by Marianne Williamson in her 1992 book A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles. This passage is often wrongly identified as having been authored by Nelson Mandela. Whether this quote is new or review for you, I ask that you take a deep breath and take in these statements with your full attention. Imagine that a strong and compassionate female guide is passing on these statements to you knowing it i…
Life with an Open Palm
One of my favorite stories to share with my clients is the old parable about how to catch a monkey. My Inner Animal Activist always pretends it's not a real story, so feel free to imagine with me.
It goes like this:
In the olden days the hunters would carve a hole into a coconut, empty it out and put some delicious fruit inside.
Then along came the monkey, slipped his hand in and grabbed for the fruit.
But with the fruit in his tight little fist, the monkey couldn’t pull his hand out of …
What fills your well?
We humans can be terrible at self-care. I think women often take the cake on this one too. We are well trained multi-taskers.
We are taught to DO ALL and FOR ALL.
I know for myself, life often feels like a game I am playing (not to win, really) but to survive! Can I get it all done, meet everyone’s needs, make ends meet, and keep the house and home chores satisfied, while still being happy and positive at the end of the day?!
The answer is typically, “No, I just can’t!”
