The time has come to talk about ways to grow spiritually. In this article, you will learn about the most important ways to grow (develop) spiritually. Are you ready to dive in with me on this topic? Let's go!
INCREASE OF VIBRATION.
It is worth mentioning at the outset what an increase in vibration is. I will not go into details of the law of attraction and the law of vibration, because I will write about it later. This time, let me just say that the whole world is made of vibrations that form lines of life. What does that actually mean? Imagine that there are different energy channels (like on a TV) and each channel is built on a different emotional energy. If you are angry, thoughts arise that belong to the scenarios of the vibration channel you are on (anger in this case). The mind is the device that receives and creates thoughts, and it is responsible for attracting certain situations. If you want your life to look like a fairy tale, but at the same time you are still on a lower vibration, the chance that your dream will come true is low. It's like switching to the horror channel all the time looking for some good comedy. Most often people don't take responsibility for their mind, live in fears and resentments, and at the same time want to attract happy scenarios. This is not possible on this channel. The first step is to learn the law of attraction and the law of vibration. What does it mean that everything has vibrations? The situation is similar to playing the guitar. If you hit one guitar string while standing in a room full of guitars, the same string will tremble on other guitars. Nobody touched them and yet they start to play. It is similar with vibration. Imagine that the human being is an instrument that emits different vibrations - different emotional sounds. In such a situation, everything in life on the same channel begins to vibrate and resonate with this person. The moment he plays the vibration of joy, he attracts all the situations that play on the same vibration. The most common mistake people make at the vibration level is trying to change the scenarios instead of changing the channel. We even see it in human tendencies when people complain about what others are doing or write negative comments on social media, instead of changing the channel. The conclusion? If you want to improve the state of your life, take responsibility for your mind and emotions and start steering it to enter the energy channels on which the plot you want is played out.
Another inherent issue of spiritual development is expanding awareness, that is, transforming ignorance into wisdom. More on this in the article on Consciousness (you can find it in the Wisdom à Reality section). In short, the expansion of consciousness is the acquisition of new, proven, universal truths accepted by the mind and experience. Consciousness only expands to wisdom, never to beliefs, theories, knowledge, or guesswork. To expand consciousness, consider life as a place of learning and try to learn from life with humility, knowing that it wants the highest good for you. Everything that happens to you is the result of a lack of awareness about something - you may not have known that it is the mind that draws situations into your life through emotions and thoughts. Only when you check it and experimentally confirm it, will you become truly aware of it. As long as we live in ignorance, certain difficult situations repeat themselves in our lives, they make us suffer. This is an opportunity to learn how to consciously enter a higher level, to become one day the creator of reality. This is the path by which we all discover gradually the truths that liberate us from the karmic cycles. Expanding consciousness is necessary for spiritual development.
SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE: RAJA YOGA
There are many spiritual paths that accelerate and optimize our development. Spiritual evolution is quite a challenge, and various spiritual schools and paths help to understand and improve it. I am not able to name one and the best spiritual path for you, as it would be limiting. I myself believe that the best path is one that resonates with you in the here and now. Perhaps in five years you will feel a different path calling you - this is perfectly normal, and you should follow that path. Among the various spiritual paths, one should mention those related to Yoga, philosophical currents of the Far East, shamanism, esotericism, magic, certain elements of psychology and many, many others. Personally, after studying and practicing many different spiritual paths, for the moment I chose the path called Raja Yoga. If you want to know more about Raja Yoga, I refer you to various external sources, including Wikipedia. Why is it so important to find a spiritual path? This has many advantages! First, it makes it easier for you to find people who are also on this path. You will find them in places with such people. Thanks to people who are at a similar stage of spiritual development, you can broaden your perspectives and grow even faster and enlarge your support network! It will give you a sense of belonging and understanding. Second, following the spiritual disciplines is like following a path that will surely be effective. Many people have walked this path ahead of you with good results! There are many other pluses, such as helping to maintain discipline, actual development, and more.
In the next part of the article on spiritual development, we will explore topics such as the healer, plants and fungi, lifestyle, and more. Second part in just 3 days!
