Pain is often passed down through relationships. Why? Because sometimes it's easier for us to cause another person pain than it is to accept and heal our own. In this episode, I reflect on the pain that I have passed on to other people through my relationships and why. I've found that we often pass on the pain that we received growing up on to other people. Until we become aware and heal those wounds within ourselves, we’ll just keep on hurting other people as a way to defend ourselves from experiencing certain pains again. But protection doesn’t heal, compassion and love for yourself as well as other people does.
At this point, I can confidentially say that I am fully engulfed in all things unknown. In this episode, I take a step back to in order to not just reflect on my travels, but also how I got here. This trip is showing me that no matter where I end up, it’s not as mysterious or surprising as I thought it would be… instead it just makes sense. Only by letting go of who I think I am, can I truly and freely step into the person that I was along. As I begin to see the bigger picture, not just of my travels but also myself, Im realizing that I’m being drawn to all the right places and circumstances, I just failed to recognize it before.
We all hear the terms Spiritual Awakening and Ascension, but what does that actually mean? In this episode, I try to answer the question “What is a spiritual awakening”? I try to understand this concept both philosophically and as I try to work my way through my own awakening process. I’ve come to terms that I am beginning to awaken and hopefully my experience can give some insight to you on your journey.
No matter how or where we are headed, there comes a time when we need to travel onwards. In this episode, I talk about the one place that I have a difficult time leaving: the past. No matter how much I hate to admit it, the past still has a hold on me because I am affected by past pains and memories. The more I try to move forwards, the harder they pull me backwards because it is clear that I still haven’t dealt with them. Traveling onwards means being honest with ourselves and where we are at before we are able to fully let go and move forward. Understanding how and why we are hurting is just part of the process of moving on so we can eventually get to where we are going.
Spiritual journeys can take on many forms, for me it is becoming clear that mine is a healing journey and this trip is just more proof of that. Israel had been calling my name very loudly and very clearly for the last month, so I knew that I had to go in that direction. Once I got there, I realized that the energy I was feeling was a source of love, but i didn’t understand why. It wasn’t until I got to the Dead Sea did I realize that the love I was feeling was a reflection and one that I forgot I had. Sometimes we need a mirror to see the things in ourselves we cant see without it, and the Dead Sea was just that.
In order to live authentically and honestly, we must be able to fully and completely express who are are. In this episode, I talk about creativity and why it is an important part of the spiritual journey. I talk about some creative blocks that I face and what that means on a deeper level. Ultimately, how we express ourselves becomes an indicator of who we are and what is inside of us, even if were not completely aware of its contents.
