I’m not good enough. Who am I to do this work? What if no one wants to hear what I have to say?
This is the exact inner dialog that kept me stuck in the illusion commonly known as writer’s block. As a result, creating content for my business was pushed to the bottom of my to-do list. I sincerely apologize for the lack of content lately.
I allowed my mind to convince me of my inadequacy as both a healer and writer..
The ever-present critic can sneak up on us. As a result, our goals and desires can be postponed or completely forgotten. This doesn’t have to be your reality.
Silencing the inner critic takes time, lots of compassion for yourself, willingness to question your beliefs, and tons of patience. I know you can do this!
Although I have resisted journaling as a spiritual practice for a while, I have to admit that it is a powerful tool for healing and growth. Recently, I’ve been inspired to use journaling as a tool for setting intentions for the day. This exercise only takes a few minutes, and it can be very powerful.
Either first thing in the morning or prior to going to bed, I journal about the upcoming day as if I’ve already experienced it. After completing this exercise, I’ve found that a majority of my intentions had come to pass. However, there were one or two of my intentions that haven’t manifested because I allowed my mind to convince me that they wouldn’t happen. If you plan to try this exercise, don’t be discouraged if your intentions don’t manifest right away.
Sometimes, we allow our minds to sabotage our efforts. Also, the universe needs time to work its magic.
Why take a bath if I’ll just get dirty again? Why bother making the bed if I’m just going to climb in it at the end of the day? Furthermore, why bother with spiritual development if we’re definitely not perfect, and we can’t fix everyone else or the world at large?
It is not our job to save the world or to fix others, and we’re definitely not expected to be perfect. For me, spiritual development is about connecting with the divine as well as becoming the most authentic version of myself that I can be.
It would be easy for me to dwell on my own imperfections or recent world tragedies and give up on the idea of spiritual development altogether. However, I don’t believe that any of us who are on a spiritual path can afford to do that.
For example, if your life purpose included helping others to remember their divinity, how could you be expected to carry that out if you were to abandon your own spiritual development?
If your life purpose includes bringing a sense of peace and unity within the world, wouldn’t it be beneficial to cultivate that within yourself despite outer circumstances?

Life transitions are inevitable, and they can sometimes bring a case of the blues with them. Here are some suggestions that have helped me to navigate these times.
First, it is important to remember that these situations are only temporary, and things are likely to get better. You may have to remind yourself of this several times a day.
Also, take time to engage in your favorite activities in order to bring more joy into your life. Don’t forget to take some time to laugh. It may feel forced at first, but just go with it.
Another thing that helps me during these times involves engaging in my spiritual practices. For example, I like to use my daily walks as meditations. During these walking meditations, my thinking mind is out of the way. This allows room for insights, solutions, and a fresh perspective.
Also, make sure you get plenty of rest, even if that means sneaking a power nap into your day.
Don’t forget that it is okay to let yourself cry sometimes. It is healthy to allow yourself to express and release pent-up feelingsFinally, and most importantly, ask for support when you need it.
You set your intentions, said your affirmations, and cleared out some limiting beliefs. You engaged in your spiritual practice, took action on your goals, and continued your mindset work. Now, you are in alignment with your manifestation efforts.
However, time has gone by, and nothing seems to happen. What’s going on? Were you so focused on the timing of your goals that you missed the blessings? When we focus on the “when” and “how” something will occur, we miss the signs, synchronicities, and messages from the universe that are directing our steps.
Several days ago, I took uber to the bank. The driver asked me whether I was working or going to school, and I explained that I am a psychic medium. He told me that his family received comfort from visiting a medium, so I took a risk and offered some business cards. The message from the universe was clear. Take action, engage in your manifestation practice, and Spirit will work out the rest.
When you think of implementing a spiritual practice, what comes to mind? Going to church or another sacred place? Meditation? No matter which practice you choose, implementing a spiritual practice has several benefits.
1. You get to connect with the divine and learn about why you came to this planet.
2. 2. Develop your intuition, and allow it to assist you with everyday decisions.
3. 3. Sleep better! There’s something about connecting with God that just brings me a sense of inner peace and deep relaxation.
4. 4. Bring healing into your life! There are several studies that demonstrate the healing power of prayer and other spiritual practices.
5. 5. You’ll know that you’re never really alone.
6. 6. Your higher power/higher self/spirit guides/other beings will never dessert you, and they will never judge you.
7. 7. It’s free! There are plenty of free resources around the internet that can help you to begin your spiritual practice. As you deepen your practice, then you can decide whether to spend money on courses or find a mentor.
8. 8. You can start it right away! You don’t need any special skills or abilities. Just come as you are!
9. 9. You may notice that you become less reactive to situations.
10. 10. Many of these practices require you to be completely present, which can improve your memory and emotional health.
