So many people want to be ‘spiritual’. Workshops to learn how to be intuitive, psychic and spiritually connected are all over. Ceremonies that open people up are happening all the time.
People want to feel less alone, get spiritual downloads and have the information they receive lead them to more love, money and purpose.
But, honestly, this path is not all about bright lights, chubby angels and everything feeling good.
When you are open to spirits, when you are open psychically to the world you are open to more than just the ‘good stuff’.
The unseen world is massive. Psychic information is not always easy to process.
People want to have spiritual connection… until they realize that part of the job description is sometimes helping suffering souls to the other side.
And that sometimes means seeing and feeling the pain and torment of spirits that have been trapped and learning how to effectively help them leave this plane of existence.
People want to be energy healers… until they realize that part of the job description is sometimes feeling in your body the pain of another person and being present to a person’s darkest moments.
We have been sold a strange bill of goods. The new age has made it seem like this path is angel cards and unicorn farts. It isn’t.
It is often deep trips to the underworld.
It is meeting with guides that scare the shit out of us.
It is removing hooks and cords and dark, sticky tar.
It is being flooded by the intense pain of a being who has been murdered or witnessing the past life of someone tortured and abused.
And being centered, grounded and present enough to stand in that and do the work that needs to be done.
When you are tuned in this way you are a beacon for this work. You decide at a certain point to be okay with the weirdness of it all and commit to service.
That service will not always look or feel ‘good’.
You will confront the darkest parts of yourself as you are schooled by your guides into the layers of the underworld.
Through that, you become strong, effective and a true light.
This work is needed. Yet so many push it away, trying to be ‘normal’.
Fuck that. You can master this service which is often uncomfortable. You can be safe inside of it all. And, imagine what a human you will be at the end.
So, if your spiritual, energetic development feels like it sucks sometimes… that’s okay.
Part of the path.
And it is totally worth it.
