For so many the “spiritual path” seems like a good idea. I’m not saying it’s not, but just be ready for your life to change.
Whether you’re financially secure, or not, won’t matter. I take that back. For some it WILL matter. You’ll lose everything, along with your sanity. Talking about losing things, let me give you a heads up on other things you’ll lose: Friends, jobs, houses, and maybe even relationships with family members. Sound awful? It is. But now let me give you what you can gain: Friends, jobs, houses, and maybe even relationships with family members.
Going down the spiritual path is not for the faint-hearted. It’s actually for those that are outrageously strong and courageous to figure it all out. It’s facing the skeletons in their closet, and the possibilities of losing face with those that once looked up to them. Going through the layers of purging isn’t easy. When ascending, which is ultimately a rise in vibration, things that don’t serve you any longer will fall to the wayside. Behavior that was once a habitual routine on Friday night, will no longer meet your desires. Your friends that you would get “wasted” with will suddenly feel like a burden to be around. Your home, or decorations/colors inside your home, won’t feel good to you any longer. Even foods, particularly processed food, will make you sick. You’ll question your sanity at times, and wonder if you’re making the right decision. It’s a journey. A marathon. There is nothing quick about it. Don’t expect miracles overnight, although they do happen. When manifesting a better job, you might walk into your current job with a pink slip waiting on your desk. Ask and you shall receive they say. So, be careful what you ask for. Attach the phrase, “all in God’s grace, in perfect timing, please and thank you” to your prayers. It makes a difference. Your angels want to know that you appreciate their hard work.
Is the spiritual path worth it? Yes. You’ll be better for it. Is it easy? Heck no. Can you go back? Nope. It’s been said that ignorance is bliss. I believe this to be true. Once you know the things you’ll learn, it’s impossible to forget. You won’t want to go back. The path is narrow and sometimes lonely, my friends. May you be blessed to find your way.
