Compromising spirituality to suit religious dogma [] ^

These insights are to bring awareness to the conflicts that happen when one tries to compromise spirituality to suit religious dogma.

It is a problem when people try to rationalise the beliefs of spirituality to fit in with their religious beliefs. In doing this they conveniently undermine the teaching of other spiritual philosophies, so it doesn’t appear to cause conflict with their religious beliefs.

Those who are fulfilled in their religion do not have these issues.

Why then do some people search for more than their religion gives them?

They do it because they are not fulfilled spiritually thus, their belief in god alone does not fulfil their spiritual selves.

For many, their souls are leading them away from the limitations of religious dogma so they can explore spirituality from a broader perspective. However, there’s an element of guilt ingrained in them about what they are doing, thus why they try to rationalise things, so they don’t have to face what is being asked of them.

Many will experience conflict from within and from those around them, until a path is chosen rather than trying to blend two different beliefs and philosophies that are very divergent from one another.

One of the reasons many people are still searching for their purpose in life, is because they haven’t been able to discover their spiritual selves, and real relationship to the greater consciousness of the universe.

When they start to awaken to their true selves, religion will be one of the many things that will be challenged. Other issues will be with their families, as their families fear they are moving away from their spiritual roots, so will often try to interfere with their path to stop what is in motion.

As they awaken to their soul more it may challenge them to walk a different path, and one that believes in god from a broader perspective. Being spiritual requires one to be flexible which does not fit with the dogmas of a religion.

Spirituality and religion are not one and the same. Believing in a biblical god does not place one on a spiritual path. Blending the two can present many challenges for the personality about what they believe about themselves, and what they believe god to be.

Psychic ability misuse [] ^

Psychic abilities are not the issue, but rather the misuse of these abilities to prey on vulnerable people who believe in the illusions of a fast track to happiness through predictions, and so-called guidance from the divine.

There are many people on the planet who have psychic and clairvoyant abilities. Each person would have been given this ability to learn from, serve humanity and the greater consciousness of the earth, just like any other gift one may have, thus this gift is no more special than another person’s gift. It is not given to serve one’s glamour’s about who they are or for power or praise.

If it is a person’s purpose to use their psychic abilities to help others, it must be used with integrity and in a way that does not interfere with one’s free will and path to self-realisation.

Many of these psychics will be hiding behind names such as coach, mentor, guide, intuitive counsellor. It is not the titles they are using that is the problem, but rather the way they are using them to groom their potential clients over time. They will often be building relationships with people on social media platforms to build trust.

Predictions interfere with people’s life paths, and the lessons they came here to learn. If a person is given predictions of what their future holds, their opportunities to make different choices, and decisions that change their life for the better have been undermined.

A good psychic will use their ability to help someone know where to look and help pave the way for them to get their own answers. This is not much different than how any mentor or counsellor would work, accept a psychic person may be able to fast track the process of getting a person there because of their ability to source psychic insights about the person.

Those who say they are channelling messages from the divine often have glamours and illusions about what their abilities are, thinking they can dial direct to god. Many are communicating with spirit guides for information. True psychism is higher intuition and is channelled through the higher self, allowing one to seek truth through the higher selves relationship to spirit.
