Anything that disturbs our peace… have any?
Navigating through life doesn’t always have to be a struggle and we all need clear guidance every once and a while to help us see our way through. This guidance is available to each one of us and is the most intimate relationship we can foster. The relationship with our own inner guide is the one that I am committed to helping you develop. Building this relationship with our self by learning to first listen and secondly, to trust ourselves, allows us to finally give ourselves what it is that we are searching for in our jobs and our relationships.
Once I was frustrated with an old pattern that kept rearing its ugly head, even after years of traditional psychotherapy, and a wise teacher of mine said to me, “Laura, knowing what caused the cancer doesn’t cure the cancer”. What I began to realize was that the continual digging into the past to find the cause of my suffering wasn’t the complete answer for healing. The microscopic focus on the part of my story that cast me as a victim to some life situation left me feeling helpless or self-righteous instead of empowered and alive. I was so focused on how I was wronged that I stayed bound up inside.
With Sanctum Spiritual Psychology counseling, I want to share with you what I found that set me free. I have been through it and come out the other side and what I am offering to help you do is not only find the cause, but also to activate the cure through the healing of memories, radical forgiveness and consummate action. These three steps are the key, I believe, to living a life with deeper meaning, purpose and fulfillment.
These words flying out of our mouths should be a red alert signal that you are about to enter the classroom at earth school again. Spiritual Psychology believes that we are never upset for the reasons we think we are and that no one else has ultimate control over our emotional state. We may not be able to choose what happens, but we do have the choice to be empowered in how we react to what life is dishing up for us. This, in turn, determines how we actually experience our life on a daily basis as one bathed in peace or problems. The only reason I am ever upset is because I have decided that there is something unfair happening, and I am the victim. What happens when there are no longer any victims and you subscribe to the belief that life is happening for you rather than to you? How does your perception of situations change when you realize that the life, God, Spirit or whatever you choose to call it is actually conspiring to help your soul evolve and grow to its fullest potential.
