The Beginning of A Spiritual Life Pt. 4

One of the hardest parts of spirituality is being told by others what you should and shouldn’t be doing. For me, I’ve been constantly bombarded by the idea that I should be some zen, cookie cutter, ball of sunshine. To simply say- that will never be me. I am an Aries Sun Sign and a Virgo Moon Sign- does that spell for shimmering sunshine? No.I am angry, I am a perfectionist, and I am beyond intense. That I’m-So-Hippie-Boho-Let’s-Be-Friends persona most people have in the Spiritual Community will never fit me. And if someone TRIES to push me into that box, I will kick and scream like a toddler at nap time.

Why? Because Spirituality is about learning about yourself, feeling comfortable as yourself, and connecting with the Divine Universe. This doesn’t mean I am closed off- maybe one day I’ll get to the point of that. But creating a fake persona would be me feeding into my own ego of wanting to be an idea versus a person. When it’s brought up to me about this Hippie persona is how I should act I scoff, it’s completely scoff-able that someone is projecting this onto me.

These personas take a couple things from us: Raw, powerful, unimaginable emotions. This persona takes me REAL emotions from me. Its normal to be sad, natural to be mad, human to grieve. That is the point of this journey- to re-connect with our souls. Blocking off our emotions is blocking ourselves off from our soul.

Letting someone preach this to you can be dangerous. People who are newly connecting with themselves need to learn how to be raw and real with themselves. That is the time to open up to the world and seas inside of yourself- perfecting the balance should only come later.

The Day of a Spiritual Momma

If you don’t know, I’m a young mother to a beautiful little boy who recently turned one. When my journey began I hadn’t ever thought a child was apart of my plan, especially at the age of 18. But he is a blessing, a light in my life that wasn’t expected. My experience with the divine and sacred motherhood was healing, uplifting, and powers me. It is powerful, and their is no bond, no understanding like the one between child and mother.

But days can be long and hard- sometimes I am faced with emotional blocks and physical fatigue that I’ve never knew could be possible.

5 am: Wake up- my breakfast for husband and his lunch, start coffee, drink water.

5:45 am: Yoga to soft music.

6:20 am: Read clients and/or work on blog posts and/or newsletter

7:30: Make morning smoothie, make son’s breakfast, wake son up.

8:00: Spend time with son, reply to emails and messages as they come in.

11:00: Feed son, put him down for nap time, make myself another meal, drink water, spend time in reflecting. Fit clients in as needed.

12:00-3:00: teach my son, play games, nurture him.

3:20: Greet husband, watch them play and interact, make wholesome dinner. Celebrate and talk about our days together.

4:00 Shower, cleanse myself, take time to reflect again. Through out my day I try to reflect and consider things- afterwards I fit replies and emails in.

7:00: Bedtime. This can sometimes take awhile since we do not believe in CIO. After this I relax, and reconnect with my husband and attend to  more business.

Indigo Children: The Truth

As a member of the Spiritual Community the term Indigo Child is one of the most known and used openly. You’ll see it a lot, “Known Indigo Child” or “My child the Indigo baby!” They are celebrated and boosted as a trophy. But in reality- what IS this? What the REAL story?

My issue with the articles floating around is that they don’t really explain much. All it is most of the time is an article listing personality traits and diet habits. I mean really- it’s the same recycled piece over and over. Most of the time is is the same list and format.

If you don’t know where the term comes from then Google: Nancy Ann Tappe. She’s a parapsychology writer. If you’re into this type of literature that’s AWESOME, just bypass the negativity of harsh critics.

Indigo children are also closely related to Crystal Children and Star Children. Often they are all lumped together and treated like they’re the same thing. They’re not. Indigo children are less developed- while they have natural powers and can come into it- they tend to almost never really tap into them fully.

They are also prone to being seen as bratty, self center- though this is partly because they aren’t understood. They are the beginning of a change- thus they are a work in progress. They have a the need for room, the need to be heard and understood, and the need to be respected. Sadly though, because they are a middle ground for change they are not fully ready to: A) accept or understand why B) to be accepted or understood. These were and are the pioneers- the ones to start ASKING for these things.

These types of people are the beginning of no longer keeping negative relationships- this is often seen as selfish due to them often distancing themselves from parents. Conservative ideas tend to not accept this as reasonable: this is seen as being none thankful towards family “”effort””. They see through abusive behaviors that are paraded as good gestures, they know and can sense the true meaning of behaviors.

Indigo children want to break down old structures that are no longer working- thus they are seen as trouble makers too. ‘Don’t fix what isn’t broken,” well, they know it’s broken and isn’t working for everyone. These power structures in our society- they know it’s only fitted to the little and not the majority.

They demand a change and that scares a lot of people.

Dreams: Guiding Through Your Soul

Back when I was 16 I worked with a paranormal group- I was in charge of their social media and with that- I started studying everything that was paranormal and occult related. One of the things was dreams interpretations and it slowly became one of my favorite topics. There was a point where I owned and studied multiple books and audio types on it. If you go through my tumblr account (theghoulgirls) you can actually find a lot of posts on this topic on how to interpret dreams and folklore on dreams.

In my first year old college I had a professor who was a fan of Carl Jung- which is mostly known for his ideas on the collective conscious and his ideology on the archetypes.  For those of you who follow me for my spirituality post and tarot work- I attended college and majored in: Addiction Counseling, Clinical Counseling, and was working on my undergrad for Human Services- all of which focus in psychology. One thing about the pioneers of modern day Psychology (Freud and Jung) is how they worked with the dream world. (Unneeded opinion- always go with Jungian theory. Less sexual and more to the point.)

The most interesting thing during my psychology class was this- was the studies that made dream interpreting a reality. I remember sitting in class when my professor told us a story about how he interpreted his sisters in law dream: she stood on the beach with waves crashing around her- with her family far ahead. She was pregnant at the time and withholding the information.

Shortly after this, I had a dream. One that, in a way, changed my life forever. In this dream, I sat in a wooden chair, unable to see anyone, but could hear my husband say, “theres my baby, theres my baby boy” and two weeks later I had a positive pregnancy test, and almost 5 months later my ultrasound revealed I was in fact having a baby boy.

Dreams, they’re fascinating fragments of our subconscious and unconscious mind. Things that our mind keep from us during the day. Stress, anger, despair, worry, hate- your mind will create images that hopefully you’ll take and interpret.

Signs of Deceased Family Members

It’s great to experience the phenomena of having a decease family member visit you– after I delivered my son I was visited by a spirit who in my heart and mind was my grandmother who had passed when I was fairly young. But, what are the signs that one who has passed is near? What are some symbols to look out for?

  1. Sparring

This is a small little bird, which is a commonly known symbols of a deceased loved one being around. You can see them flocking or peaking on the ground.

2. Perfume, cologne, or a scent you closely associate with them.

If you randomly smell them, this could very well be their way of reminding you that they are in fact there with you. This is also a very common way that they will show you that they are there. This is also a common report of people.

3. Things going missing.

Ever have something go missing and you just placed it there? Yep– they are walking among you. This might sign has more energy to it– and a larger message.

4. Dream Visitation

You might see them in your dream, and maybe you’ll be able to obtain an urgent message. You may be able to have a conversation with them. Do not think this is just a simple dream! This is their way of trying to contact you.

5. Electrical issues

Pop. Your light bulb burst. But it’s brand new! Yep, things like this are also a sign. We have all heard the theories of spirits needing to pull energy to manifest themselves– so it can’t be that hard that they would pull and cause surges to let you know they’re here for you.

6. Sensing

The best way of knowing? Simply knowing. You’ll know when they’re contacting you. Trust yourself on that.
