Spiritual Growth Means Knowing Something Is Greater Than Ourselves

Updated: Aug 16, 2021

I wanted to pass along a few thoughts that have been rolling around in my mind and have been the hot topic (in a good way!) between myself and Spirit the last few weeks. If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you know that I follow patterns of messages/insights/conversations, and trust those are nudges from Spirit of what they’d like me to pass along to my students and clients.

In the last few weeks, I’ve had a number of clients and students chat with me about not only the need to keep on growing spiritually, but trying to understand the *why* of doing so. And while there are no cookie-cutter answers (nor would I want Spirit to give me one, lol!) that I have for you -- I feel like Spirit has left me with some loving thoughts that I am hoping you need to hear this week.

Self-Care; Being at Your Best, dedicating time to what you define as YOUR Spirituality --- all foundational pieces to keeping a strong and peaceful life. Spiritual Growth has a different meaning to each person - we on the other side, define it as a deep sense of connectedness, belonging, wholeness, and opening to the infinite wellspring of possibilities in front of each of you! When you continue to choose to grow in whatever way you can (spiritually), you end up creating a supportive energetic current of energy that can help you deal with life’s challenges and grow into a better, more whole and happy individual.

Choosing growth adds a continued sense of hope and optimism, and it should remind you that ANYONE can have a better future - you are not defined or destined by what you’re going through in this moment. You will always encounter challenges in life, but if you stay hopeful during these trying times you will persevere. Growth enhances your ability to deal with life’s ups and downs, and bounce back from those difficult experiences.

It is easy to look at others with judgment and criticism, but when you start to grow spiritually, you realize how much healthier it is to cultivate compassion and understanding for others instead. Spiritual Growth provides you the wherewithal to serve, and to help others! Spiritual Growth improves your personal well-being and teaches you to look at life through a compassionate lens, so you can grow through your connections to others. A feeling that your life is worthwhile is powerful - you can share that kindness and compassion with others. We are all alive for a reason, and each of us are meant to contribute something to the world.

Life is full of inspiration when you are looking for it. There is also much to be grateful for despite the struggles and challenges you might face. Whatever name or label that you give to your spiritual source is personal -- the most important thing is the sense that there is something greater than ourselves, and that we don’t have to carry the entire burden alone. You are always heard, loved, and looked after - that is an absolute promise from our side.

See what’s coming up at Reflective Harmony including the brand new Reflective Harmony Spiritual Store. I have lots of workshops and classes planned for the late Fall and early 2022 - dates and information will be updated shortly. Wishing you joy, love, and happiness!
