We are Spiritual beings having a human experience.
A recent conversation with my 4 year old grandson, Jax, warmed my heart and confirmed the natural inner knowing, purity and innocence of a child that I know to be true. Jax is a very bright light; He is brilliant, compassionate and so intelligent. Jax loves animals. He calls himself the animal whisperer. Therefore, I could not wait to inform him we were on "pet patrol" for both our neighbor's dogs since they had to go out of town due to deaths in their families. To my surprise, Jax was more interested in who died than taking care of the dogs. I explained to him it was our neighbor's brother and mother in law that had past away. He immediately interrupted me,"Nina! When you die, Your spirit does NOT die. Your Spirit lives forever." My daughter and I looked at each other speechless. My daughter, Stephanie, asked Jax, "Who told you that?" Jax repied, "No one did. I just know that." Later that day, Jax boldly assured me, "Nina, When you die, You'll be my Angel!"
I live, teach and coach my clients from the perspective that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. We are not human beings striving to be Spiritual; we are already Spiritual Beings. Digest this statement for a moment. We existed in spiritual form before we were born. We are eternal Souls. Our authentic power is our Spirit, our Light. And we are more than just a physical body. We are a Soul with a Body.
When I say, "Spiritual" I don't mean religious. I believe we have a mind, body and Spirit not a mind, body and Religion (I love, honor, and respect all paths to God). Spirituality is OUR personal relationship with the Divine, God, HigherSelf, or Universe (whatever resonates with you). It's the energy that makes our heart beat. Our Soul is a little piece of The Divine in each of us. It is here to experience this life, its lessons and evolution. It is where unconditional love, forgiveness, compassion, harmony, peace and Joy exist. Therefore, being Spiritual really means living more from an open heart. It is our most Sacred Self.
It is important to appreciate the value of growing and learning at a "Soul level". If we miss an opportunity to grow our Soul, The Universe gives us the same type of issue over and over again until we learn the loving lesson presented. This is often referred to as Kharma. When we grow Spiritually, we overcome these challenges and in turn they become blessings or Dharma; we then actually become more loving. Love is at the core of us all.
How do we access this Spiritual part of us? Our most Sacred Self? The simplest way I know how is through our Breath (Spirit/our Life force energy) by meditation and or prayer. Easy to do? We breathe every moment of everyday. Just not consciously. And from the connection to our Breathe we can access our own internal GPS (Guidance Power System) and quiet or still the mind. That is where the magic and miracles exist. All the answers we need to know to evolve our Soul are within. Truly, life is an inside job. And like my grandson, Jax, he knows innately, we are, indeed, Spiritual Beings having a human experience and the experience is formless, brilliant, magical, powerful, miraculous, and so loving.
