Many of us are looking for communities and people that can enrich our deeper journey. The amount of Ascension Groups, Online Courses and Spiritual Blog Sites in Social Media and the internet have been exploding in the past couple of years. It shows us the need for guidance in this area of self-improvement and spiritual emergence, but how can we discern the often redundant and often single-sided information? What if we want to grow beyond channelings from 'spiritual beings' or the mainstream how-to's of 'becoming more spiritual'?
Not sure about you, but what catapulted my personal journey to a whole new level of understanding myself and the purpose of my life were not the OBE's and other cool cutting edge technologies of consciousness research I experimented with, but the hands on uncovering of those powerful layers of my ego that limited my perception of myself and the world we live in. At that time, the ever positive message of 'love heals all' didn't really make sense to me, as I was mainly caught in my mind trying to 'figure' out my emotions and why my life didn't feel true to me - not to mention deeper questions such as the purpose of my life...
On my personal journey, the deeper meaning of heart-centeredness and how I can utilize my energetic sensitivity to create a life and understanding of life that goes way beyond my mind didn't reveal itself to me until much later. In order to 'get it' I had to learn how to let go of my mind and my ego first - and so I spent a considerable amount of time chasing books, workshops, teachers and yet often running in circles. From my perspective it felt like everybody else got it - except me - which made me feel not good enough or not 'spiritual' enough. It took me 20 years to learn how to meditate, how to have a happy and lasting relationship after two failed marriages and being a single mom, to find what I really want to do after several unhappy careers and starting my life over again at least three times, until I realized that my journey is really just a repetition of the same old pattern in every area of my life.
