Highly awake people tend to be ultra-conscious, which often translates into being overly critical of everything they do, and even who they are. In spite of pure intentions, good deeds and spiritual striving, the weight of self-criticism can bog the spiritual seeker down in Earthy mud and muck! No matter how hard those chakra wheels spin, there is little traction to get unstuck. A belief rises to the surface:
If I were only spiritual enough, everything in my life would fall into place.
Is this conviction keeping your contentment hostage? Are you constantly trying to “change negative thinking” or “process fears” or perfect your spiritual practices? Are you really sure you are doing everything RIGHT?
Perhaps you should learn to meditate in that Earthly mud… or better yet, just play in it!
Yes, dear seeker, this moment – as you recognize just how inadequate you are and how many more miles there are to walk on your spiritual journey – is the perfect time to take a long, deep, loving breath and exhale gratitude with a heart-felt “OM.” Put that soft Buddha smile back on your face before you read on.
Like any good, spiritual enthusiast, you likely did as instructed… and perhaps you feel better… or not. The question is, Do you believe there is an ever-evading perfect life waiting for you to ascend to it?
Rather than process your beliefs about this one, or give you some affirmations to repeat for the next 21 days, here are some essential truths for your heart to behold:
Maybe, wise one, you are already evolved and your only “lesson” is to embrace your Perfection now? Perhaps it is time to stop taking it all so seriously (as you are oh-so-beautifully conscious that you actually know you are always emanating your best anyway). It’s time to have a bit of fun for a change!
Need ideas about what to do at recess, spiritual student?
Life is an amazing unfoldment of the All That Is, ever-changing, ever-Perfect, ever-mysterious. As we awaken further to our higher spiritual consciousness, we will discover what we perceive to be obstacles along the way. Are they obstacles? Did we create them? Perhaps.
Allowing your Perfection is remembering that you are absolutely spiritual enough, your life is a Divine reflection of your expanding soul, and the present moment is where you get to embrace it… mud, muck and ascension.

Great article, Veronica!! Thank you!!
Thanks, Shannon! The complimentary video JUST uploaded after about 12 hours! I first uploaded the unedited version by mistake, which took many hours, but the second try with the edited version took even longer as my internet was super slow with all the activity. Glad you enjoyed it... and perhaps the video now that it's up.
Hi, Veronica. I'm forwarding to the publishers for the magazine. I have just one question. I love the "play in the mud" phrase,. Is there any way to add it to the title to capture reader attention? Maybe something like, "Playing in the Mud: Are You Spiritual Enough to.....?"
I don't focus too much on this one aspect in the article; it's more of an offering amongst other ideas to help us lighten up a bit and although it resonated with you, it seems like a stretch to add one of the tips as part of the title.
Then again, I don't know what "hooks" people in titles, so I will trust the editors to make this call.
This really came from my experience of spiritual people believing that if they just got things "right" spiritually then everything would be perfect in their lives... money, relationships, emotions, health, etc. Thanks for passing it on!
Also, I'll be submitting the audio recording of the article by tomorrow.
Great phrase, though
