Attending this class or reading this blog, you are finding a way to connect with your spirit. Some of you may be searching for some form of spirituality that resonates with you, or you may be struggling with some area of your life and have begun to question your beliefs. And for some, you may be expanding you own ascension to be closer to your spirit. Whatever the reason, know that you have listened to your spirit and you are connecting now at some level.
So what is your Spirit?
Your physical body is your temporary vehicle for your spirit whilst here on earth. You spirit is your eternal essence and it lives on forever as unconditional love and light of the divine. Our lives on earth are in a dense vibration and to live with connection to our spirit we have to choose to live consciously. When we connect with the divine unconditional love magic happens and we live Heaven on Earth.
How does our connection with spirit change our lives?
When we welcome our spirit into our daily lives we can begin to find peace in our heart and peace in our mind. We also start to listen to our inner values that help guide us in our daily interactions with ourselves, with others, the natural world and the contributions that we make to our communities. How we connect is very personal and different for everyone. Some people connect with their creativity in the arts or music, some connect in nature, whilst others connect in churches and faith based groups, to name a few.
When you connect with your spirit it can offer many benefits including being in a better mood, experiencing less anxiety and depression and reduced bouts of physical illness.
What blocks us from connecting with our spirit?
FEAR is the number one block to your spirit. Take a moment to think of all the things in your life that is driven by fear… Are you working at a job you hate because you are scared of change or less money or failure in a new career? Do you fear which foods to eat because they might cause cancer or give you a heart attack? Do you fear judgment from others, so in turn you are a people pleaser?
Fear is your ego telling you that you are not good enough.
Ask yourself this question…”If I am a part of the divine, if I am love, how can I be anything less than perfect?”
Each and every one of you are beautiful, are love, are joy and peace… you just need a chance to remember who you really are.
How can I tell if I am connected to my Spirit?
Remembering who you are automatically displaces your ego from running (ruining) your life. When trying to distinguish between your ego and spirit, just tune in with your vibes. If you feel good, happy, content and at peace then you can be assured that you are connecting with your spirit. If you are fearful, anxious, depressed, tired or self critical, ego is in control.
How do I nurture my spirit?
Our lives are very busy in today’s society and we are more than often plugged into the television, Internet and our jobs and less plugged in and connected to our inner selves. To nurture your spirit it is important for you to find out who you are and what you want in life. Find time to figure out what is really important to you. This can be done each day by:
· Looking for the good in others and in situations around you. Focus on the positives.
· Pay attention to your feelings and emotions and make decisions on what ‘feels good’.
· Follow your passions.
· Being joy, being you.
· Listening to your intuition and trusting what you get.
· Accepting and appreciating what each moment offers
· Not judging yourself or others.
· Spend time each day being mindful. Focus on the ‘now’ in order to see and feel the joy.
Is my physical body important when connecting to spirit?
Do you service your car? Change the tyres? Fill it up with fuel and give it a grease and oil change? Of course or it would not be able to get you from A to B.
Your body is a sacred vessel that houses your divine spirit.
Is that not the most important role a living vessel could have?
It is your very own temple. It houses your heart, which is your direct link to your spirit. Love it, honour it, and be grateful that it can do all the wonderful things it can do.
Your body is energy; it communicates with you and gives you signs and warnings when things are not right. Pay attention to how your body feels emotionally, mentally and physically. When you listen to your body and keep it well tuned and it will become your best intuitive feedback system. Your body can give you signals when your emotions are not resonating with your true self. It will start to get sick when there is a build up of blocks or negativity in your energy system, letting you know that it needs clearing. It will validate your good judgments’ with excited feeling, or butterflies in your tummy. It will let you know when you need to get out of a situation by a feeling in your gut or chills running down your body. Your body will always lead you in the direction that is best for you.
In order to welcome your spirit into your life it is important to create a loving, grounded and healthy home for it to reside. Not to do so is disrespectful to your spirit. The more you tune into the body the more you can welcome spirit into your life.
Tuning into spirit will give your life a sense of purpose and meaning. It will help you focus on a force greater than this physical reality. It is also a way to help you understand suffering and a way to connect with others. But also it is a wonderful reminder of all the good in the world.
“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” - BUDDHA
