So many of us are looking for ways to simplify our lives and live from an authentic place. We are seeking ways to connect in a more spiritual way with ourselves and others. But for many this can be challenging. We either don’t understand what it means to be spiritual or to have lost faith.
So what does “being more spiritual” really mean? For me it means becoming more in tune with nature and the cycles of the earth, and becoming more conscious in my day-to-day life. It means remembering what it is like to be part of a tribe, a community, and becoming more indigenous. As I stated in my 2012 article, “It is time to return to our roots and create the new indigenous tribes.” For the past 5 years I have been weaving a new life for myself, a life that feels connected and conscious. Coming from where I came from this was not easy.
For the first 31 years of my life I lived in such an unconscious place, I thought that I was doomed. I worked hard at fitting in, trying to be one of the crowd, when all along I felt like a misfit. At that time I didn’t know I was actually a spiritual being looking for ways to connect. I believe this is what is happening with many people today.
Many are looking for ways to connect in an authentic way, yet have no idea how. Becoming more connected can show up in a variety of ways. Looking into the cashier’s eyes when buying groceries or paying for gas, or just saying hello and asking how they are. Another way is to do something kind for a stranger. My mother would always find ways to plant trees and give blankets to the homeless. There are so many ways to become more spiritually connected and live from an authentic place. One way to tune into your spiritual nature is by becoming more aware of not only your thoughts and words but also of what you eat. I used to be a junk-food junkie but in the past 20 years I have worked toward eating healthier foods. Since I cut out foods with chemicals I have found that I have more energy. Recently I started a green cleanse and am amazed at how much more intuitive I am. I have always been very tuned in with my clients but since this green cleanse, my intuition is off the charts. I can really feel the difference in my energy body. What we ingest is vital. Somewhere in our DNA structure there are indigenous cells. These cells are used to healthy foods, foods straight from the land.
Once we clear and clean these cells we can become more dialed in. It is this cellular memory that will assist us in awakening. Once awake our perceptions shift easily and there is no longer a need to stay attached to old ideas. We will begin to look at life with more compassion and understanding, creating more spirituality and authenticity in our daily lives. If you are one who is seeking to become more spiritually evolved, then look deep within. Find out who you are and how you tick. Change things that keep you from living your truth. Trust that you are a divine being with a mission and don’t let others dictate how you should live your life. Trust in your ability to connect and create. From this place you will be able to manifest a rich reality, one where you can feel whole, connected and at peace. It is important to keep a positive outlook on life and journal your progress. See where you are still negative or down on yourself and be kind. Go slowly through this process so you can learn to love and honor yourself. One of our many gifts as humans is the ability to create. We have this beautiful mind from which ideas take root and form. Use your mind and free yourself from old ways of thinking. Blossom and grow into the beautiful being you came here to be. When we become grateful for ourselves, and how we are showing up in the world, things begin to change. It is time to take root in the earth and shine our light for the world to see.
