Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.
There comes a point in your life when you question “Is that all? What else is there in life?"
Everyone turns to spirituality for different reasons. Some are bored while some had gone through a major shakeup in their lives.
For whatever reason you seek spirituality it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you have embarked on this pursuit and how this may affect or change you. The fact that you are reading this article is already a sign that you have started the journey.
Many ask, “So what?” What does it mean? How should it feel? What is spirituality? How do I know when I’m enlightened? How long will this take?
In my own pursuit of spirituality, I’ve met many practitioners.
From angel healers to reiki healers, clairvoyants, psychics, empaths, you name it. And yes, apparently there are differences between clairvoyants and psychics.
I’ve attended many healing sessions, talks, seminars, rituals and ceremonies. I’ve spent money on personal sessions with healers and psychics seeking answers to personal situations. You can imagine that this pursuit has been quite an investment for me! I thought to myself, why spend $1000 on a handbag when you can spend it in the name of spiritual pursuit?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a believer in the work of healers. “The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind.”.
I remember attending a healing session where the practitioner talked about how we’re gathered here on such a rare occasion on a super blood full moon eclipse with planets in direct motion, none in retrograde, all in their home signs.
Okay, maybe I need a lesson or 2 on astronomy and perhaps astrology but fact is I didn’t understand a single word then. There was silence in the room, I didn’t dare to ask what all that meant because it seemed like everyone else understood it except me.
And so I just went with the flow and at the end of the session when everyone had to say how they felt, of course I said I felt something because you are suppose to feel something otherwise you are not spiritual! Well truth be told, i found it rather entertaining with all the candles and aromatherapy and mingling with people who attended!
I enjoyed these sessions despite not understanding what they meant or what they did for me. It was just great to be able to feel like you are part of something spiritual.
It wasn’t until a period in my life when I decided to go on a sabbatical that I really started to question. This time, not questioning any healers or psychics but questioning myself.
I stopped seeking answers externally. I realized that if I don’t know Me how can I expect someone else to know me and have answers to my questions.
It sounds easy for me to tell you that You have all the answers within you but that is so true!
The path to spiritual enlightenment begins with knowing yourself.
Seeking everyday to know yourself better, spending time alone with yourself, reflecting on your own words, emotions, feelings, thoughts and reactions. Asking yourself why you feel a certain way about a situation or a person. Experience something new for the first time. Get out of your comfort zone.
Stop trying to be the person someone else expects you of and begin to discover the true essence of who you are.
No one said that it will be an easy path to spiritual enlightenment but I can tell you that it is a fulfilling journey.
I was lucky to have the chance to go on a sabbatical but I’m no different from you. I work in a corporate world like many of you do and at 45 I am now crystal clear who I am, what is important to me and what I love to do.
Every week, I share my passion of sound therapy with people from different walks of life. Some I meet for the first time, some whom I’ve become friends with over time.
I am not your healer, you are. I only facilitate gong bath and singing bowls sessions to help you along this journey of spiritual enlightenment.
