Your Spiritual Path

Many of my clients who are discovering the world of Angels and the metaphysical, report that they are living a double life. They can speak their beliefs to a small, select group, but when around family or co-workers, they have to "play along," and pretend to share the beliefs of that group or be shunned or drawn into an unpleasant argument. The beautiful thing about the Angels, is that they do not demand that you acknowledge them in public. They are happier to have your one-on-one attention and even happier when you ask for their help.

Spirituality and the 'Real World': Out and About

While you may choose to keep your spirituality to yourself and be respectful of those who follow different paths, you will always run into those who will not return the courtesy.

Spirituality and the 'Real World': Your Friends

You just get out of a great meeting or discussion group with others who share your spiritual beliefs and you're still feeling emotionally "high," and you see some friends. You want to share the experience you just had with people you care about, but you know they won't "get it." If you push your beliefs on them, they might not want to be around you anymore. Your spirituality is much more than what you experience at a gathering, it is how you live your life. Instead of preaching about how great your church or meeting group is, simply, show it. Your spiritual experience is between you and Spirit. Your friends may choose a different experience. If you cannot be happy...

Embarking on a new spiritual path can be educational as well as exhilarating. To develop a fresh, new relationship to the Divine Source always feels good.
