The other day I was watching a Discovery Channel special about preparations for the 2018 launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (just completed today!), the complex infrared instrument that will allow us to peer further into space than ever before, while it prompts astronomers and astrophysicists to speculate about the prospect of finding more planets in the Goldilocks zone of their stars. As we’re about to make this historic visual leap into unknown regions of the universe, once the James Webb launches we might all feel a flash of excitement about the prospect of finding signs of intelligent life in our universe.
From a spiritual perspective, I believe that our lives are a reflection of our apparent spiritual advancement and that, with acquired awareness, we can more clearly focus on our innate responsibility to promote our own spiritual progress. Each one of us is presented with multi-level challenges, as we embark on the complex journey that is our individual lives, and some of us undergo greater endurance testing than others. In this way our strength, resilience and adaptability are proven, and how we deal with difficulty translates into how our spirits will progress.
Our ability to observe ourselves in a positive light is of utmost importance, because the decisions we make to ameliorate or worsen our condition will help or hinder our spirits on their timeless journey. Over the past 30 years I’ve worked with clients who have raised a plethora of questions about the purpose for their existence and, once they’re aware of the nature of their spiritual aspect, their focus shifts to the import that a positive spirit could have in their lives. When approached through a spiritual lens, there is a clearer understanding of the cause and effect of why adverse conditions are presented in their otherwise ‘normal’ lives. In addition to being challenged physically, mentally and emotionally with negative circumstances, many have been suffering the effects of having been accosted spiritually.
Similar to how the James Webb Space Telescope will be able to penetrate through dense cosmic dust clouds to send back incredibly clear images of previously unseen stars, when you work with your spirit you’ll be able to break through the negativity that interferes with your wellbeing. Since your spiritual self inhabits a higher plane of existence, the acquisition of positive spiritual knowledge will enhance your ability to view your life experiences with more clarity. Once you learn how to recognize and counteract the impact of negative challenges in the immediate moment, you can emerge stronger, healthier and happier as you move forward. As you visualize a positive outcome to your endeavors, your spirit can provide inspiration that will make a real difference in how your future will emerge!
Although the efficacy of working with one’s spirit has too long been hidden from sight, this enlightening practice brings immeasurable clarity at all levels. We can begin to expand our positive spiritual knowledge within this lifetime to allow our spirits to progress, so they can attain and maintain a purely positive stance.
