Many people think that being spiritual means being positive, but being spiritual means being conscious and aware. To become conscious is a much different thing than to become positive. To become conscious and aware, we must become authentic. Authenticity includes both positive and negative.
I completely agree, many people on the spiritual journey tend to shield and dissociate from the negative components of themselves and their experience inevitable to show up. I often find in times where I am receiving and allowing more upgrades into my existence, I must go through a period of time which many would classify as negative. Awareness is everything, and in its acceptance we can flow with an abundance of gratitude for all there is and all we are. I loved your post and the authenticity you have shared with us, sending peace and love.
Could not agree more. Another misconception that I think people have is that because your spiritual you should be okay with people disrespecting you. Kind of like you should be a pushover. Or that if you are not a pushover that must mean that you're not that accepting of everyone and everything.
If I get upset or have a day that I’m feeling off, my husband tells me “I thought your not supposed to get like that if you’re going through a spiritual change. I have to remind him that I’m not perfect just a human being trying to be better. Funny how we jump so quickly to point others fault but clueless to catch our own.
