-They recognise the importance of creativity : creativity is an expression of the soul. It is a two way conversation between us and the universe. Tapping into our inner pool of inspiration and pouring out ideas that are a reflection of ourselves, or who we want to be, is a wonderful way of reminding us what we are capable of. But creativity also encourages the growth of one’s soul because it requires that we are forever connected to something outside of us that is much bigger than us, and can provide us with that flow of energy. It is the greatest therapy for helping us release pain or conflict that is unresolved and that which we are unable to face. When we begin to create something that comes from a painful place within, gradually as the expression that comes from this begins to take shape, we will find that the pain that influenced us to create, begins to ease inside. Because we are transforming it into something that results in beauty, something that empowers us, and allows us to also interact with that pain in a form which we are happy and comfortable to interact with it in, rather than burying it or dismissing it. Creativity is wonderful not only for helping us recognise our own capabilities and how much expression we truly hold inside, but also how to release anything weighing us down. Authentically spiritual souls know that a day without creativity, is a day that greatly lacked connecting them to their deeper soul needs, and they will use any opportunity they can to express themselves be it via dancing, a particular form of exercise, cooking, writing, playing an instrument and so on.
-They recognise how openness, honesty and letting go, will change their life :
It is in discovering a world that is beyond our conscious and previous inhibitions, one in which we are unlimited, one in which our persona falls away and we forget the version of ourselves that others around us may be familiar with, or the version of ourselves we have come to feel comfortable in the presence of and instead bring our attention to the many versions of ourselves we have the possibility to become.The majority of us become so preoccupied with designing and maintaining this mask, that we neglect or do not even begin to build awareness towards the feelings, wishes, and ‘shadow’ self in which most of our darker yet also desperate needs reside, along with our ultimate truth. Which means the greater majority of our lives, is spent primarily, or only, in becoming acquainted with the self, the persona, that we feel comfortable with and settle with. In other words, much of the wealth in which we provide ourselves with may nourish and contain the ego, but this is the very part of us that hinders our progress in expanding beyond our current identity, and searching beyond our attachments and superficial concerns, in order to nourish what exists internally, and forever progress on a soul level which will ultimately help us let go of the emotional baggage, self-imposing limitations, blocks, and negative patterns that we are often too unconscious to recognise. In being open and brutally honest, we learn to recognise what and who we must let go of, even if we believe that those things or people still serve us, sometimes our attachments blind us from acknowledging that more damage than good these things present in our life. Letting go presents us with challenges, but holding on will only hurt and hinder us, with all the hardships of the past and worries for the future weighing down on us like a ton of bricks, challenging us to maintain our sanity and peace of mind as time passes. So it is important for us to ask “how are things working out in my life right now with the current belief-system I uphold” and then access what it is that may be crushing or cracking us both physical and emotionally. Both holding on and letting go hurt, but only one of them allow us to come out on the otherwise as a stronger, happier, resilient and more enlightened soul.
-They understand what they must face, to explode with all the power they contain :
When someone aims to reach an authentic version of themselves, in means dealing with that which holds them prisoner to their development. Can you imagine climbing mountain upon mountain, swimming through the most treacherous and the most violet of seas, walking across deserts barefoot in the burning sand, battling vicious and savage storms, in order to become united at the end of the expedition, with a treasure chest which inside, holds all of the answers that will allow us to reach our greatest capabilities, but when we reach the end, in seeing the treasure chest before us, rather than marching purposefully towards it wit the key around our necks, commending ourselves for coming so far, we stop, and retract, too fearful to bare what we must acknowledge and face from the answers provided, and instead, we turn around and run. This is what I see in those of us that are thrust into a state that presents us with the opportunity to expand and rise, but instead, we choose to remain a diminished version of ourselves by not confronting what will be required of us. Rather than turning away from the hideous or horrifying mess that may be presented (yes It sounds extreme but so often what we hide, we may find frightfully off putting) acknowledge it with kindness and compassion. Do not look at it with distain, shame or guilt. We rarely ever treat ourselves with the same kindness or sensitivity that we would with those around us, but at times when we are facing our truths in order to evolve on a soul level, the worst possible thing any of us could do is humiliate ourselves for our past mistakes, current disposition or uncomfortable aspects of our character we deem unappealing or unworthy of love. There is not a single soul in this world that contains all the qualities of a saint yet is devoid of any darkness. Those who are searching to be spiritually authentic very much embrace both sides, for it is in the familiarising of self that allows us to surpass much of what we hold ourselves prisoner too. We must face our battles if we are to truly honour our existence in this life.
-They want to continuously transcend :
In order for the expression of the soul to come about, there must be no obstacle, no inner force or external influence that limit, detract or hinder that process. It is why it is of great importance to reconstruct and re-access oneself away from one’s experience so far, and reclaim the elements that are a reflection of one’s true nature. It is this reconstruction that eventually leads to us becoming more familiar with a wider aspects of dimensions we carry. And it is this reconstruction that allows us to forget what we have been taught and carried with us over the years, and reject and abandon in order to develop a true expression of oneself and not a repetition of what has come before. It is this reconstruction that allows us to be a reactionary, and rather than go with the age, re-emphasising and adjoining to the ways of the world, we stand out against all this, and recondition ourselves by restoring what has been lost through previous conditioning that has not be a result of our own choice, we refashion what we see, by perceiving it through a polished lens that is untainted and no longer blurred by previous associations and unaffected by the limitations at hand. In order to become a soul that encompasses infinite liberation, where one recognises what the world lacks, what must be changed, or what has not been done yet, it is of the utmost necessity that we acknowledge that the type of soul strength we must develop for this change, begins in the darkness. A strength that will be required in order for us to launch ourselves into finding these more revolutionary ideas, enabling us to not only be creators but also pioneers, allowing us to re access, recreate and renovate ourselves. To put is simply, we must discover ourselves and the world all over again. Authentically spiritual people recognise that who they are now in this moment, is only one of many versions that they could be. They will never stop searching for the elements within them and outside of them, that will aid them into transforming continuously in order to reach a higher and purer power.
