Do you hear the whispers of the universe?
These days many people feel called to start on a spiritual path – maybe, like me, you feel that there has to be more to life than this; there has to be an easier way. For me, at one point it became hard to believe that life is supposed to be such a struggle and that it was all about just paying bills and buying things. I kept reading about people who had found deeper meaning in their lives, who had learnt to connect with some higher power and use the law of attraction to change their lives and find true happiness on a very deep level of their being. I thought, since I’m miserable living the way I live now, I might as well try to find this magic in life, I have nothing to lose.
So I started on the craziest, most challenging yet the most rewarding and exciting journey of my life. The only journey worth taking. I spent many years reading, studying, meditating, journalling, spending a lot of time in solitude, getting lost and finding myself and my connection to the higher power of the universe that is available to us all. The journey is about re-training your mind, it’s about letting go and un-learning, going within, healing old wounds and learning to trust yourself and your inner guidance.
I am a dedicated student of A Course in Miracles and have studied various spiritual teachers and traditions for over 10 years. Along with ACIM, my other major influences are the teachings of Eckhart Tolle and Michael A Singer. I like the straightforward, practical approach of these teachings, there is no need for rituals or tricks, no new age trinkets or tools; ultimately, you don’t really even need teachers or books, all the power and wisdom is within you and whatever is in front of you is all you need to work with in order to get closer to that power.
Spirituality is not separate from life – all life is spiritual since we are spirit (or energy), how could it be otherwise? The laws of the universe (mainly the famous, yet often misunderstood, law of attraction) are working all the time in every part of your life, in every situation, whether you are aware of it or not; there are no accidents or coincidences. For me, the first evidence of this was the fact that everything in my life was a struggle which, with a little self-observation, I could see perfectly reflected my inner state and it was exactly what I expected life to be, so how could it be anything else? Therefore, every day life with its challenges is the best tool for spiritual growth – in fact, that’s why things happen in life, to teach you and to wake you up to your own power. So the best place to start is right where you are, work with whatever is in front of you. When you understand that everything happens for you life becomes far easier.
Though the journey never ends, I’m pleased to have reached a place where I am able to offer support and guidance to other women on this path. I am free of the constant fear I have lived with ever since I can remember, I rarely stress or worry and I know that whatever I want in life I can make happen not by hard work and hustle but by aligning with it energetically, clearing all my blocks, living in the now and taking only inspired action! It is truly mind blowing to realise how powerful you are when you learn to connect with the power of the universe within you.
Above all else, I have found the way to be happy in any situation; to live fully every minute regardless of what I have or don’t have or what is going on in my life. Happiness is an inside job; if you cannot be happy with little, you won’t be happy when you have a lot – this is a fact. The best time to learn to be truly happy is when life is hard, believe it or not, so if you’re struggling right now, see it as an opportunity to find true happiness so that you can really enjoy the success and prosperity that waits for you in the future. Success is inevitable when you’re truly happy. ‘As within, so without’ in other words, inner abundance leads to outer abundance – this is the law of attraction!
So when you’re ready to start making some serious progress on your path, it’ll be my honour to support you!
