Self exploration or self-study for spiritual expansion is life changing. The term ‘self-study’ can be triggering for some. I refer to this practice as an indication that you choose the path and timing of your learning and discovery journey into a deeper spiritual experience. This is a mind/body/spirit journey. If you are unsure of your desired path or best practices to support your interests, these are wonderful times to consult with a psychic for insights and ideas from their perspective as to what will help you the most or what is calling to you in the most powerful ways. Or maybe it is just for confirmation of what you have been deeply feeling or thinking. Either way, checking in with your favorite psychic can really be a game changer for you: helping you to home in on what matters the very most to you right now.
This concept could bring up memories from the past of being in school - not always pleasant. Or, it can seem overwhelming - where do I even begin? Just pause and take some grounding and settling deep mindful breaths. Never fear, I am here to clear the path to distractions and overwhelm and shine a light on your path to self-discovery. This will have many twists and turns and that is really what you want. Because each step along your path, you are an evolving you, fine tuning your desires and interests.
My goal is to introduce a variety of new patterns, habits and lifestyles that you custom pick for you. Let go of rigidity from the past and embracing what lights you up inside and out. We will be replacing older resistant and destructive habits that we have all fallen into over time, with those that feel lighter, happier and empowering. Now is the time to create life-giving activities and choices.
This quote by Lao Tzu sums this up as an important viewpoint.
“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” - Lao Tzu
Each person is on a unique journey. We each have traveled up and down a path of happiness, success, love, worthiness, fulfillment and beyond. If you have reached a point in your life that you want more, and know there is much more for you, now is the time to start to peel back the layers of life distractions and discover what it most calling to you. Or, at least the best direction to start this journey.
5 Techniques to Deepen your Experience:
1 - Create a Sacred Space that is Yours Alone.
In this space you will relax and find plenty of time for reflection and the practice of trusting your inner you for direction and guidance. This can be a literal geographic location that feels safe and private where you can relax into the true sacred you. It could also be a mindset and intention when the desired location is not available, and you need deep support. Often it is can be a combination of them both. Try to find or create a secluded, private space where you can truly be yourself at the deepest levels. If desired, you may also consider traveling to a retreat or very desirable location to intensify this experience
As part of this beloved spiritual space you can incorporate items such as:
- Cushions and Blankets
- Meaningful Icons
- Tarot or Oracle Cards
- Essential Oils
- Spiritual Posters
- Spiritual or Meditation Music
- Singing Bowls, Tuning Forks, Imagery, Spiritual Jewelry and Clothing
- Yoga, Chakra and Reiki influences
You can even dedicate a sacred alter space. The list can continue on as you learn, grow and experiment…
2 - Meditation
Meditation is a very personal experience. No matter how you begin, meditating will help you tune into more peace and calm. This is good on a physical level as well as a mental health perspective. In addition, it also raises your consciousness and increases your vibration. These are all very good places and spaces to be. In addition, the more comfortable you become, it will also lead to easier manifesting of what you deeply desire at a soul level. This is all about allowing rather than resisting.
- You may want to start with a guided meditation from someone or some organization that you trust. Psychic Source offers many guided meditations to pick from.
- Choose the length of meditation that makes sense. Consider starting with 10 minutes and working your way up to longer sessions that call to you.
- Trust yourself and be open to being guided to new experiences.
3 - Journaling
Recording your thoughts and experiences can be very helpful on this path of discovering who you really are and what you deeply want. Uncover what is exciting to you.
- Some enjoy daily journaling of life experiences, thoughts, and wonders.
- You may use journaling as a method of brain dump to empty your restless mind.
- Do you like to doodle and by artistic? This can easily be part of this process.
- Keeping a small notepad by the bedside table is also very helpful to record insights, dreams, downloads and aha’s.
- Do not overthink this. Do not make anything too harsh. Allow what helps you, and let this habit develop over time.
4 - Move Your Body
Whether you are called to Yoga, Walking in Nature, Dancing to your Favorite Music or something else, body movement is an important part of this process.
5 - Tune into Mentors and Leaders that Inspire You
Trust where you are being called. It does not matter the budget of time or money. You can and will find what you need next. Whether you follow them on social media, listen to their podcasts, read their books, sign up for their programs or attend their events (live or virtual), follow the path that is appearing for you now.
Of course, you always have a choice of what you do, who you interact with and for how long you participate. But, do not be surprised if you are given options that are unexpected or those where you feel very out of your comfort zone. Based on my experience, these possibilities are simply stretching us in new ways. Give it a try, you can always adjust along the way. And when you look back in a year from now, you will be amazed at how much has changed. And how eager you are to continue your path to exciting new connections and opportunities.
Allow the process to unfold. Along your path, you will continue to go deeper and deeper, until it is time for you to move on to your next steps. In my experience, life guides that process for each of us for our highest and best. The timing and choice on our path is not about listening to or trusting others, nor is it a decision of the mind, ego, or our human impatience with the process. As long as you are communicating with the universe about your true desires, you just need to get out of the way and go with the flow. I’ll see you in the land of wonder and amazement, you have plenty of time to discover.
