Are You Over-Spiritualizing Everything?

“God has it all under control; go to sleep.” ~ Unknown

You’ve probably met someone, or maybe you’ve been this person at some point or another, that has a spiritual reason behind everything that happens in life.

“Oh you can’t seem to manifest abundance? It must be because you have blockages in one of your chakras,” “You constantly are running in to setbacks in life? Oh that must be because you are still clearing karma from your past life,” are things we often hear people saying.

It’s almost as if the more we dig deep into the vaults of metaphysical topics, the more reasons we uncover for why things aren’t going like we want them to. Suddenly, we are spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars trying to get our chakras balanced and our past life karma cleared.

But is all of this really necessary? On one hand one could argue that, yes, energy is a very real thing and until we get to the energetic root of a “problem” we will find ourselves in a cycle that brings us to one similar situation after another so that we can have opportunities to heal that energetic root once and for all.

For those that are in touch with life beyond the five senses they know that clearing blockages out of an energy field is a very real thing that can have lasting impact on our lives.

However, on the other hand we must come to a point on our path where we are able to discern whether or not our spiritual process is actually keeping us stuck in a painful or toxic circumstance longer than is required due to our insatiable need to diagnose the spiritual ailment that has brought us to that particular situation.

Is it possible that our thirst for an intricate solution is actually inhibiting us from seeing the simple answer that is right in front of our faces?

overthinkingGod isn’t stupid

“Everything that is happening, should be happening.” ~ Matt Kahn

What so many of us fail to realize is that the Universe, God (whatever you want to call source) is fulfilling it’s desire of living as a person named whatever our name is perceiving itself through our eyes, just as we think we are a person attempting to fulfill his/her dreams and goals by looking to the Universe for answers.

What this means is, the Universe wants our happiness and success just as much as we want it, because it IS us. An entity that WANTS us to succeed isn’t going to set up a bunch of random and difficult roadblocks for us just for fun. The Universe isn’t stupid. It is going to attempt to move us through our life in the easiest and most effortless way possible.

With that being said, are there energetic blockages that must be cleared in order evolve? Yes. Are we going to find ourselves in situations that are attempting to unravel our limited belief systems that are preventing us from living our most fulfilling reality?

Yes. Will some of these situations be unplanned and/or painful? Yes.  But our limited human perception is not the one that needs to keep track of all of that.

This is where the ever intelligent Universe comes in and dictates the rhyme and reason behind why things go the way they go, and this force never makes a mistake. Point blank, if it’s happening, it’s supposed to be happening.

Most of the time, we won’t know why. From our limited perspective, the only thing we need to be aware of is whatever is happening in the present moment holds the answer to so many of our concerns and worries.

Rest assured that all information that is needed to live this exact moment is within and available to you. The moment more insight is required, like magic, it will appear in your life.

In this present moment, we are able to go within and feel our heart space.

Simplicity is key

“Some things arrive in their own mysterious hour, on their own terms and not yours, to be seized or relinquished.” ~  Gail Godwin

The way we feel about something is the number one indicator of whether or not said thing is meant for us, or meant for us to leave. Unfortunately, so many of us over-spiritualize toxic relationships or life situations and rather than walking away from someone who simply doesn’t make us happy, we internalize everything and begin to blame ourselves for someone else’s unsavory behavior.

‘What have I done to attract this?” We may find ourselves asking. Or even, “what terrible traits am I seeing in them that I am not seeing in myself?” Soon years are being spent in a toxic partnership or at a job that isn’t making us happy, simply because we are trying to figure out what is ‘wrong’ with us to have manifested such a thing.

And while yes it can be true that we meet people or are in partnerships that teach us something about ourselves or catalyze something within us that needs to be acknowledged for healing purposes, long periods of time spent in these types of emotional states are never healthy for anyone involved.

The simplest solution that the universe is always trying to relay to us, is if it makes you happy, joyful and is effortless than it’s good for you. If it continuously makes you feel sad, angry, or frustrated it may be time to move on to something else.

So if you are like most people, and find it hard to just pick up and walk away from a job or a long-term relationship, this is where the universe prompts us to go within and reflect on what fear based belief systems are we holding on to that are keeping us stuck in a situation that is making us feel anything other than happy.

Don’t make life harder than it needs to be

What the Universe is most likely trying to get through to most of us at any given moment is this: don’t make things harder on yourself than they need to be. It is not up to you to solve the riddle behind every energetic block.

It is not up to you know exactly what happened in your thousands of past lives that could be responsible for you attracting the wrong type of relationships.

It is not up to you to diagnose yourself and others and tell everyone you meet what is ‘wrong’ with you or ‘wrong’ with them, especially if no one has even asked. It is only up to you to love. To accept every thought, emotion, person, situation, and perceived problem in your life as another manifestation of source that it is, accept it and love it.

I think most of us would be surprised to see that if we stopped trying to solve our lives and instead experienced them, we would actually open up and allow an intelligence much higher than our mind to move through us and move us to the next fulfilling possibility that is in line for us to experience. No questions asked.
