What type of relationship do you have with your higher power (god, goddess, or the universe)?
I will tell you right from the beginning – the level of your happiness is directly proportional to your connection to your spiritual source.
For years, I spent a lot of time wandering around the physical world “acting as if” I had the perfect spiritual life. After all, I had all the head knowledge. I knew the language of Kabbalah and other metaphysical sciences like I knew the English Alphabet. But, I had a little dirty secret – I knew the language, knew the words, I knew how to go through all the motions, but I had not applied the principles to my life. In fact, it took 11 years (and a spiritual awakening guised in a brekadown) to actually begin my REAL spiritual journey and create the actual connection to the light of the creator that I truly desired. I realized that spirituality and my personal connection actually took work, effort, and daily practice.
Now, before you get confused. I am not a saint, I did not grow angel wings, and I have not yet learned to levitate. I (like everyone else) have made some stupid life decisions that were not in my best interest. I still get caught up in obsessive thoughts, anxieties, worries, struggles, battles with my self-defeating behaviors, but what I have learned is that I always have a remedy to these particular problems. Applying these solutions has helped me become truly free.
