A bit about Spiritual Direction
In the old days we found our spiritual direction in religion, most faiths had a way of helping confess our sins so to speak and although its not language I like, it helped people be more honest with themselves about there behaviours. As well as that we would be giving spiritual direction through the morals and values of each faith. These days we don’t have to confess our “sins” but it is good to have someone to help you go through the stuff that is draining your energy. For instance if you feel shame about something, even if its something someone said about you that wasn’t true you will find it will limit your self worth because how can you have proper self worth if you feel bad about yourself. One of the tools I teach is how to clear this sort of energetic burden so you can actually stand in your own power and respect yourself and boy, does everything change when you have self respect. You will never have any boundary problems, ie people treating you badly, lying to you etc because your self respect wont allow it.
All the work we do when clearing out our shadow sides in done from a place of non judgement, discovery, honesty and with a bit of humour to lighten things up, here is just some of the things we can look at
The lies we are telling ourselves on a daily basis
for example: Not being able to keep your word (Even to yourself) I’m going to eat healthy today knowing full well your not.
I’m in a relationship with this person who I pretend to love but the reality is I’m too scared to be on my own.
Shame/guilt/fear/anger about things we have done in our past, or had done to us or people have said about us (feeling judged)
Can we forgive ourselves and or others or are we still blaming
Coping habits we have developed to help us cope with reality – over/under eating, phone addiction, mindless behaviours, smoking, drugs pain/illness, need for intimacy, co-dependency, overspending and debt issues
Creating new routines, habits and behaviours that will enhance your life and becoming self regulating.
