I get it. You are trying to live your best life and keep the whole show on the road in realtime, when someone comes along and tells you to adopt a spiritual practice. It sounds a bit woo woo and airy fairy and although you might be curious about the idea, you just don’t know if all this “alternative” stuff can actually help you get your shit together, or if it’s just designed to help you escape into fantasy for a little while. Can a spiritual practice improve your confidence and wellbeing?
I started my conscious spiritual journey reading tarot and exploring meditation over 22 years ago. I say conscious, because prior to that I had dabbled and had a keen intuition as far back as I can remember, but never sought to develop it until in my mid 20’s. So much changed for me at that time as I began to identify everything in my life that was out of alignment and integrity with what my inner being was feeling and pulling me towards. It took me years to understand that I had a choice – to follow the crowd or to follow my soul’s calling.
When you first start on the journey, light and dark come into very stark contrast, making the transition from what life is damanding of you, to you directing your life the way you want it, can be terrifying without the right guidance. It’s this dichotomy that makes us question whether a spiritual life and practice is right for us. I get that it is hard to see how you can actually make your life change to fit your new found understanding.
It took me just an instant to understand that the life I was creating was making me exhausted, ill, unhappy and really lonely, even when surrounded by countless people in my life, but it took me years to figure out how to transition into a life that filled me with energy, confidence, real connection (albeit on a smaller scale) and wellbeing that I could manage and replicate just by making small adjustments along the way.
I became the oracle, the interpreter of universal law and angelic wisdom, so that others can benefit from the years of work I had put into finding the spiritual path to freedom, empowerment, self-love and wellbeing. I created a life that didn’t include a spiritual practice but instead became a spiritual practice… the practice of listening to my own truth.
Can a spiritual practice improve your confidence and wellbeing? It really isn’t the right question. The question you should be considering is: can confidence and wellbeing become my spiritual practice? Now you are lining up with your soul’s purpose and asking for the universe to get behind your mission.
Once you make this distinction, every action you take in the direction of your intention… meditation, oracle cards, angelic connection, yoga… skydiving, partying, sex, cake… it all becomes a spiritual practice. You stop trying to distinguish between your day-to-day realtime, boots-on-the-ground existence and your connection to something bigger.
Your confidence and wellbeing will begin to improve the minute you stop trying to be something you were never designed to become. Stop trying to live upto the standards and expectations of others. Stop trying to fit the square peg in the round hole and stop beating yourself up for failing to be perfect.
Everything about you is perfect already… with the exception of the fact you forgot (and even that was a part of the greater plan).
If you are considering starting a spiritual practice of your own, ask yourself if it allows you to explore who you are and how you feel? Ask if it leaves room for you to adapt and transform as your connection to your own wisdom evolves? Ask if it restricts or expands your experience of your physical reality? All these questions will tell you if you are stepping into an empowering practice or giving your power away.
Will you always get it right? Nope! (I still get it wrong and I’m still on the path). We’re always on the path. What I can tell you is: the further you walk it hand in hand with Spirit, the more confident you will get and wellbeing will be yours no matter what storms come your way.
