Are you ready for a Spiritual Quest?
To venture on a spiritual journey is no longer a leap in the dark. We are living in an age when old belief systems based on authority structures are being questioned.
There is a new sense of personal sovereignty – people realise that common sense is a solid barometer of truth and nothing beats validation through personal experience. Spiritual ideas can be shared and discussed in forums with like-minded people.
Still, there are times when life demands and challenges seem to weigh you down or test your mettle. Even the most dedicated person needs encouragement and a spur to continue at some time in their life. It might be when there are hard times, or you go through a dark night of the soul which really tests your faith in yourself and the universe.
Spiritual growth is a matter of the heart. It doesn’t need to be justified. It can only work if you are genuine. This is a good thing, because you can’t fake it, not to yourself anyway.
With each step forward, and with time, consistent effort starts to produce positive results. You will live and breathe it and nothing will make you want to revert to your old outlook.
Even so, we all need to build strength at times if we are to reap the gain from our efforts and see real tangible improvements in our state of mind, goals, and personal relationships.
This section gives you spiritual armoury, not in the war-like sense, but to help you in those times that you feel distracted, are struggling with mental resistance, or events in life seem to be pulling you in an opposite direction from your spiritual resolve.
Some basic spiritual armoury are the following tools and resources that will give you clarity, strength and a good sense of direction:
1. Mantras – when practiced, tone and tune your mind and body.
2. Affirmations – build new positive ways of thinking and remove old mental grooves that don’t serve you.
3. Spirit Guides – every soul has a guide, or guardian angel, who they can seek help and advice, or inspiration.
4. Media Savvy – an insight into the ways mass media limit our world view and feed the ego mind.
If you ever feel dispirited by the hardness and vulgarity of this society, take heart because you are a Soul Warrior and highly regarded in the spirit world. If you have any doubt about this check out Spiritual Boot Camp: Earth.
