Sometimes I feel disconnected spiritually. It happens when I rush my morning practice because of 'things to do'. It happens when I don't get up early enough to journal and greet the day with grace. It happens when I'm projecting my issues onto someone else, when I'm trying to control the future and when I forget to give thanks.
The people who come to work with me are often disconnected spiritually too. They may feel lost, lacking clarity and unable to see the way forward. I support them to come back to their inner knowing as well as to be connected to their spiritual self. This often means arriving in the body for starters. Being grounded is not as common a practise as it needs to be for our well being. I'll write more about that another time. Recovering our spirit/energy/power from the myriad of places we have projected it, understanding why that is and becoming present can take some time.
Once we're in our body we can connect with how we are actually feeling rather than getting into stories with our thoughts about our problems and why they are there. That kind of thinking is a distraction from emotions that want to emerge so we can heal and feel lighter.
When we are aware of how we are doing physically, emotionally and mentally it becomes easier to connect to our spiritual being from a place of awareness.
Feeling disconnected spiritually can look like despair, depression, questioning your self worth, loneliness, emptiness and a lack of meaning in your life. These are signs that your spirit needs some attention, that it's calling, "Be with me, attend to me."
The challenge for each of us is to recognise what we use as an excuse for not setting aside the time to connect on this level. For some it is health, for others time, family commitments or not enough money driving us to keep on pushing.
When we deny our spirit we deny our essential nature. This soul aspect of our being would love to speak to us in cherished moments but because we have become conditioned to think and do it speaks to us through pain, suffering, struggle and fear instead.
Your greatest source of pain comes from denying your spiritual nature. It is important to create a sacred space and make room for this connection. Become aware of your spirit's needs. Ask, what do you need from me? What do you need to share with me? You may need to sit quietly by yourself and journal, or let images and impressions come.
Restore your spirit by feeding it with imagination, passion, beauty, creativity and harmony. Have beautiful things around you. Listen to music. Pray. Journal your gratitude. Meditate. Read spiritual texts. Enjoy nature. Be alone in peace. Connect with animals. You instinctively know what your spirit needs. What is coming to you now as you consider that?
Know the signs that you are disconnected and enjoy the full hearted feeling of reconnecting to your Spirit and coming home to your essential nature.
wishing you many centred spirit moments

Are you a Healer?
Do you have faith?
This question is vital for you to get clarity on.
Faith is knowing, Truly knowing Spirit. You may say The Universal Consciousness, God, Higher Guidance or Divine Intelligence or something else, That doesn't matter. It is faith in a higher unseen power that is important.
Your own Higher Self is at play in your world and in your healing practise. Knowing rather than hoping or liking the idea of that is real faith.
For me knowing is a deep sense that is unwavering and has big Clarity. It has no need to be questioned,
You may have faith in some areas and not others. Explore that.
If you are healing from a place of curiosity that is ok, Know this and be clear on it. Doubt may be beneficial as your healing journey evolves. If this is the case allow your self minutes sometimes where you are a clear channel and your ego is out of the way so you know what that feels like.
The ego wants to protect us. If and when we know we are safe in our own Higher Powers hands Real Magic begins to occur in our healing work. (and in our Life!)
The kind of magic that is possible when a higher Light vibration of Real Love is involved.
I encourage you to honestly explore your faith.
