Ok…So this is a hot topic. Have you ever experienced weird, possibly magical, occurrences when you were in a fit of emotion? Have you ever been able to tell the future? Have you ever been able to read people’s minds? See spirits? Talk to spirits? Well, you may be on the right path reading this. There are tons of ways people find their way to the spiritual path and there are that many ways times ten to practice it. We aren’t going to go over every single way to practice spirituality today, but we will touch upon a broader understanding of it.
So first you must be wondering, where do I start? Well, unfortunately no one can really help you with that. The only thing anyone around can help you with is exposing you to different ways to practice so you yourself can find one that fits you. This can even change overtime! That means that what you choose in the beginning can either morph or completely change as your life goes on. Like me for example…Started out Christian, went to Wiccan, became a Shaman in the native tradition, and then now I’m a practicing Pagan with a Shamanic lifestyle. Although the most important thing to remember when starting spirituality is that you are going to have a ton of self-doubt. This self-doubt is rooted in the fact that during the course of your life so far, you have been taught that magick is not real and that humans are not powerful. As you are probably realizing now….this is just not true. Humans are extremely powerful.
So, what do you do with this newfound knowledge? The biggest part of most practices is, don’t harm yourself or others. This is generally a golden rule amongst most practices and the only reason why I say most is that I do not know every single practice in existence. Also on top of that, there is a time and place for everything and a balance to the world so in general, what you may think now as good and evil has to coexist. Another big thing is, to circle back around to the self-doubt, try your hardest to trust yourself and what you are experiencing. It can be very hard to accept that your not just making it all up whether it be experiences while meditating, astral projecting, receiving messages, any psychic abilities arising, etc. This is the point in time where you should be strengthening those skills instead of doubting the gifts that have been given to you.
Crystals that can help this which are great for any beginner are those in the quartz family. This would include Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Citrine, and Smoky Quartz. Amethyst will help open your third eye and allow those messages to come through clearly. Clear Quartz will be great for connecting you to the divine spirits you are currently working with and will help connect you to the other realm easier. Citrine will help start healing the wounds in the Solar Plexus chakra which houses past emotions and traumas that we have held on to consciously or subconsciously. Smoky Quartz will ground you during this whole process and help keep you in a calm space when dealing with everything being thrown at you in the beginning because it can really be a lot sometimes. Remember these are tools that have been given to us so we can navigate life easier and move forward quicker and more efficiently than if we had nothing helping us.
To wrap up, this is just a good introduction to let you know that you are not alone and there are thousands if not millions of people out there going through the same thing you are right now. We are in the awakening period of our human existence. Everything we touched upon in here will be written about in the future so if you feel like you need more information it will all be right here!
