How To Trust Your Spiritual Teacher

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIf you have a spiritual teacher, how do you know you can trust her? Weren’t you told to trust yourself first? Wait, how do you know you can trust your therapist, or even your doctor? Especially with all the sexual assault cases coming to light these days, it is scary to think that someone who is supposed to be your protector, care-giver, or mentor will use that position to manipulate you into a situation that is abusive, sometime violently abusive. Thinking about this can be horrifying, but so is not thinking about it.

What about the idea ‘trust yourself’? The problem with just trusting yourself is that if you grew up in an alcoholic, drug-abusing, violent family, or in some of the more subtle dysfunctional family dynamics, such as having a narcissistic or wounded parent, your radar for self-care is damaged. You do not yet have the skills to discern what is healthy for you. Your brain and nervous system is literally wired for dysfunction as your default normal setting. This means you will choose the dysfunction you know, because it is all you know. You will seek out an alcoholic lover; or you will find jobs with narcissistic bosses, for example.

Needing The Love Of A Spiritual Teacher

click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe love of a spiritual teacher is not human love and this is often misunderstood in our Western culture. Many people are drawn to spirituality because they are profoundly lonely. For those looking for the love of a teacher, you can count on that loneliness to be a profoundly unconscious desire to be connected to the Self and to Spirit.

On a dangerous note, this is how cult leaders thrive, by preying on those who don’t realize they are seeking spiritual love, and by offering a manipulative human love. Human love can never fill the gaping hole, and because cult leaders tend to be sociopaths, it can take years for cult followers to wake up. By then there will be a great deal of damage control needed in order to heal.

Meditation Is For Everyone

click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comMeditation is a wonderful technique to reduce stress. It is commonly used with the aim of reducing anxiety, stress and depression. Reducing stress has the potential to improve your quality of life. It’s believed to improve health and that reduces healthcare costs.

Meditation is basically a spiritual practice to focus the mind on a object, activity or thought. The goal is to achieve a clear, calm and relaxed state. Meditation involves a state of awareness in which the stress activity of the mind is neutralized.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years in religious traditions and spiritual belief systems. Since the 19th century, it has spread from its mostly Eastern origins to other cultures, where it is practiced today in both personal and professional settings. Meditation is not a form or prayer. Meditation is awareness. Awareness is meditation.

Applying Advice Correctly

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comGood ideas come not from going against, or trying to form contrary reactions. Good ideas come from intuition and instinct, those which feel natural in the sense of being able to nurture, rescue and look after oneself. Should the idea feel good to oneself, then it should be applied to others.

Does this sound obvious to you? Well, it is not always so. What I have found in offering advice, is that paid advice is usually the most helpful to my clients, as the person will then be more prone to follow the advice. They have made the effort to invest in it.

Should one perhaps listen to a teacher you do not like, or a neighbor or acquaintance you feel may frustrate you, then good advice can become harm. Why? Because they are trying to take well-meaning intuitive and instinctive rational efforts to obstruct the passage of someone else trying to live their life, and it may turn into gossip, or information with a bias. It can be seen as controlling, or meddling.

Power And Protection From Your Ancestors

Click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI come from a long line of female herbalists of European origins on my mother’s side of the family. They were seers, healers, and prophets who combined their psychic gifts with ancient healing practices. Today, they still come to me during meditation, to offer wisdom.

The family’s mainly Germanic connection is one I’ve researched for many years, but more recently I discovered that my ancestors crossed into Scandinavian and Norse territories too, which suggests a bloodline of fierce women who were warriors of their time. It’s really not surprising to me, as even my own mother today, who is 84 years old, can still kick anyone’s butt who crosses her path in an unkind way! I always knew she was strong when I was little, and I always admired her power and independence.

How To Truly Help Others Without Ego

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAs a spiritual or metaphysical practitioner there is no substitute for having a spiritual mentor or teacher of your own to guide you. People typically tend to continue the same ego-driven behaviors in their lives, over and over, not catching it. They can’t catch it without practice and guidance from someone who can help them see the nuances of slipping back into ego-dominated behaviors.

In other words, a workshop or certification course, or reading some articles and books, and then practicing on your own, typically will not offer you much success in personal transformation or your field of work. As Einstein said, you cannot solve problems with the same mind, i.e. mindset, paradigm, consciousness, level of awareness, that created the problem in the first place. This is why people go to 12-step meetings, psychotherapy, support groups or work with a mentor, guru, or teacher – to get viewpoints, input, suggestions, guidance from other people who are also on a journey.

Religion, Superstition And Personal Spiritual Practice

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comReligion is not only a codified system of beliefs, it also includes rituals that some might label as superstitions. The difference between belief and superstition is experience. If you experience something it is a reality, for you, and you will believe it. If you don’t experience it, then it is only hearsay and without proof you don’t necessarily believe it. However, you might still engage in it, because you were ‘told’ it is true. The latter usually applies to religion. Sound familiar?

Superstitions are the building blocks of present day religions. People tithe the church, for example, because they were told that is what God expects and they will be rewarded with prosperity. Some people use guided meditations, or rituals and spells, to manifest what they want, without having any real experiences of feeling an energetic connection themselves.
