The Journey of a Thousand Petals
The process of awakening and the empowerment of spirit is esoterically called the Journey of a Thousand Petals. This journey of evolution is a journey of recalling our divine mission and understanding the purpose of living a meaningful life. This journey can be seen as a three fold path. Each path relies on the integration of the others. Each road leads back to our source and into wholeness.
Though our spiritual journey is perhaps the most important part of our human experience, our embodiment and integration of spirit within matter, often matters even more. Living in relation to our surrounding and exploring the forces of nature around us are an integral part of the spiritual process of evolution. With this clarity, how do we understand the message our bodies has to share?
It is often said that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our spirit and our soul is the driver within this human vehicle. Living within the realm of spirit is guided by our heart and with a sense of harmony. How do we understand the immense challenge that matter and spirit bring about to our day to day journey. How do we expand our hearts and study the intricacies of a limitless soul?
Relating and relationships are a spiritual journey. Our relationships reflect our spiritual growth and our understanding of our own journey within spirit. Most of us lack the tools to communicate, to express and to set healthy boundaries which will support our growth. However, when embarking on this journey with curiosity and guidance, our relationships can be our greatest ally and our greatest gift.
