Spiritual Guidance Method
Welcome. Life can be a roller coaster ride and we all need some spiritual guidance every now and then to help keep us on track and balanced. My method in spiritual guidance is simple, but powerful. First, I offer deep listening for you to express any personal issues that may be presently challenging for you. As appropriate, I offer you emotional support, insights and prayer. Then I simply work with you to facilitate getting you back on track with your own personal spiritual practice that is in tune with your own faith. It has been my individual experience, and what I’ve witnessed with those I’ve worked with, that it is our own dedicated spiritual practice, if done consistently over time, with enthusiasm and without break, which makes our lives spiritually strong and shine with happiness, well-being and gratitude.
The trick is a steady and consistent spiritual practice. It’s just like going to the gym, if we want strong healthy bodies, we need a daily exercise routine. The same holds true for our spirit, we need a daily spiritual practice to stay strong and balanced spiritually. Personally, I use the various paths of yoga to fulfill my daily spiritual practice. However, as an interfaith minister I work with you within your own precious faith and beliefs to either, discover and establish your own personal daily spiritual practice, or to support and guide you back to your established spiritual practice. Sometimes we simply need some support and inspiration to get back to an established practice that was derailed due to some deep loss or other major challenge in our lives at a time when we might have needed it the most.
Spiritual practices can range from such simple but powerful forms as prayer and meditation to more complex forms of spiritual rituals, selfless service and spiritual study. Ultimately, we want the outcome to be a heart full of, and a mind focused on, peace, joy, love and light. Therefore, to this end, I look forward to supporting and working with you whenever you may wish to contact me.
