What is a Spiritual Counselor?

          

 Many people are now looking for opportunities to expand further into a deeper and personal jurisdiction of their own truth. They have felt something- an energy, a force, flashes of insight, but what they have sensed does not fit within the realm of structured religions. They see that the world is off track and religion has sometimes done more to perpetuate the pain in humanity than it has to assuage it. They feel that they are evolving (this word comes from Latin evolutio, which denoted specifically the unrolling of a papyrus or parchment roll) further into the understanding of who they are as Spirit Beings or Energy Beings living in human form. Through the centuries, the mystics have revealed to us the possibility of the spirit within and many humans are now discovering that truth for themselves. But how do they reconcile what they have been taught in their childhood and culture with what they have felt within their own mind and heart? Where can they go to discover how they may live in authentic relationship to the world they were born into?  They sense that the knowledge they seek is within them but how do they get there from where they stand?

 

    Spiritual Counselors simply recognize the inner spiritual influence in each person’s life and offer to show the client the magnificence of what they see.  When we live from a place of our magnificent Spiritual Self, our human self can experience the ease in which life can be lived. They assist people in their journey toward spiritual clarity. If the client feels she or he has suffered from religious dogma and feels that this hinders her or him in following the inner spiritual urge, the Spiritual Counselor assists the client to heal this wound and to help with the disconnection they feel from their inner spirit.  Spiritual Counselors can support people as they tap into the part of themselves they have suspected was there all along and teach them how to live from that place of acuity. They are a bridge that helps people cross over from lack of spiritual identity to a solid understanding of relationship to their inner Spirit.  In our near future, there will be as many Spiritual Counselors as there presently are psychological and emotional therapists. The world is slowly recognizing the need for this type of help in our human walk.

 

As a Spiritual Counselor, I know that regardless of the religious background or the many erroneous beliefs that undermine our true contentedness on this earth, our inner spirit is moving us toward the expansion of our authentic power. In my healing practice, I assist my clients, workshop attendees, and retreat participants by intense listening and sacred acknowledgment of that spiritual expansion.  I know that the life force in them has always nudged them toward their highest potential and it will continue to do so. It cannot help itself.

There is a great need for a clear identity of who we truly are on this earthly journey. Our spirits want us to know the power that we are a part of and how to be free from the entanglements of the mind and man-made religions.   This earth is a paradise on which we can live joyful and exuberant lives. The only obstacle in the way of that peaceful lifestyle is the belief that we are flawed human beings destined to live out lives of small thinking in bondage to self-defeating beliefs. Our worth is not what we do or what we have done but in whom we are as Source Energy.  I am a bridge that assists people toward this powerful wisdom.
