Practice a little spiritual selfishness
Updated: Dec 1, 2020
I don’t know anyone who was ever taught that being selfish was a good thing. On the journey to realizing my dreams, and those of my clients, I’ve discovered that unless we are selfish with our time, energy and attention our desires will remain right where they are, in our dreams…
If we took an inventory of where our energy goes on a daily basis, chances are we'd find that its being invested in the lives, dreams, and plans of everyone else instead of our own. Leaving us drained, depleted and exhausted.
Another day goes by with our dreams put on the back burner. Eventually we become frustrated, angry and resentful at anything or anyone we perceive to be the cause of our frustration. However, in truth they are innocent bystanders in the creation of our movie.
Being spiritually selfish requires a great deal of courage. When we decide to withdraw from being overly involved other people’s lives (which can be a great source energy drainage), it may seem to them like we don’t care, but nothing can be further from the truth.
The path of spiritual selfishness is ladened with guilt, doubts, sadness, loneliness, confusion, what others will say and think of us.
However, the transformational benefit of this practice far exceeds the challenges. It'll renew our mind, body and spirit enabling us to create a deeper connection with ourself and desires like never before.
“Spiritual selfishness” is the ultimate act of self love. This is not an act of the ego or to withdraw from others to prove a point. Its simply a way of saying “I am making a conscious choice to uncover what makes my heart sing. What will make me come alive to experience my very best life?”
Eventually, a funny thing will happen – we'll find that we're much better equipped to support the very same people from a healthier, happier and more grounded place. At our core, isn't that what we truly want for ourselves and others?
Here are a few tips to get you started…
Make time every day for some “spirit and me” time.
Find someone who will support you in your endeavors. The bigger your dreams and aspirations, the more “spiritual selfishness “will be required.
Remember you are partnering with the divine, so you will always be supported, guided and protected.
To your outrageous happiness and success!
