This post is a succinct overview of the spiritual wellness treatments and practices that have helped me to reach this point in my awakening. I feel that for any path of focused practice to be feasible to maintain there must be methods employed to increase our awareness. In my experience, I have learned to focus on being able to interpret dream and meditation symbols, and to train to the level of Reiki Master practitioner. The key main components of my path are :
3. Dreams and vision interpretation
A handful of other methods act as additional support along the spiritual journey. However, the crux of the discovery method and tools I've used thus far are consistent meditation, self reiki attunement to maintain my vibration, and leveraging dream and meditation symbol interpretation to receive intuitive guidance. For some people, it may be possible to skip meditation, provided they are able to remain sensitive to incoming intuitive messages and other means of receiving insight and downloads. Tarot card reading does play a role in filling some of the roles performed by direct vision interpretation, but it is absolutely not as flexible and requires more intuitive focus to get to the necessary message. This is because the interpretations from the cards relies at times on the guidance the finite symbols in the cards can provide, and in a waking state it can be a bit more challenging to receive exact downloads that are as specific and directional as dream states or meditative visions. Put simply, visions can have infinite variations, and tarot cards are limited to visuals within their range of options.
As stated, I made a time commitment to reach Reiki Master Level, so that I could give myself, others, and situations reiki energy attunements. By and large Reiki attunements (both giving and receiving from self) helped in increasing my sensitivity to the energies at play.
I cannot emphasize more the point that intuitive clarity plays the largest role in self-growth acceleration. Hearing the divinely guided steps behind every change and tweak, or decision we must make is the most effective aspect of deepening our self understanding and ushering in new levels of our transformation. Prior to having a clear and trusted inner sense of intuition, to be honest, progress was slow for me. Tapping into my deepened intuition, owning my senses as an empath, and being able to unpack intuitive downloads significantly opened up new ways of receiving detailed information essential for my path.
I personally don't believe there have to be hard and fast rules to the personal and individual path to self-discovery. Life itself winds us along the preferred and necessary path. However, I do believe in practice and consistency, as well as benchmarking oneself to understand methods that have best garnered growth and expansion.
I was encouraged into meditation by the first palm/tarot/intuitive reader I ever went to. I had a HUGELY spiritual event occur in my life which somewhat blew my mind open the the possibility of what was and what is. In the bounds of the meditations she requested I do, I began seeing visions or visuals in my mind's eye. I poured through dream and vision interpretation literature to make sense of them. It was then that I discovered that I am at times receiving visions/images/insights in my mind that educated me about certain aspects of myself, my path, where I've been, and at times where I am going. I began to take better notice of these fleeting images and they became more vivid and lasted a bit longer. I also began to have random needs to nap, and those sometimes 15 minute short naps yielded unforgettable and vivid vision based dreams that I have near perfect recall of to this day.
As I meditated and focused more on clearing and cleaning my own energy, reiki became a natural next inclination. I noticed when I meditated that the palms of my hands became very warm. This lead me to believe that if I began training in the art of Reiki, that perhaps I could be adept at it. My boyfriend was the first to tell me "you're an empath." plain as day. It wasn't something that made sense to me, as I don't have the usual personality type or people pleasing tendencies of an empath. Though that is another aspect of self that I began to unearth as I realized that what I felt was the normal human experience was definitely not the experience had by all. The training in Reiki helped me become even more energy fluent and that fluency has helped me tap into my empath abilities to talk about personal growth concepts and challenges with others. Through these discussions, I also learn a great deal about myself and have epiphanies on the human condition and the myriad of reasons why we are all here.
In conclusion, this is my system of practice in a bit sized short post. As evidenced, the path of personal growth and awakening is quite flexible in the sense that it is fully integrated into my life experiences and it does not really present itself as a hobby or personal undertaking - separate from my daily life. As each of us are on our own path in this life, no two paths can or should look the same. I am merely sharing in hopes that whomever needs to find this explanation may, and in its words find new ideas for how to seek answers that are already within them. That was also a key bit of learning, that it is all untapped and within us - we needn't seek for much else outside except for the resources that can help us unburden and return to our true nature. With our true nature being a person guided by the soul, living life day by day being divinely guided by the soul which holds the blueprint for our true path. In my journey, that is when I learned that writing "Inner Glow Up" was part of my work to show others that it is all within them. They just have to clear away the dust of trauma, other people's expectations and earthly shaping, and then they are ready to step into their true selves.
