As our lives progress into adulthood our beliefs can change in incredible ways. What we may have been taught to believe in as a child may cease to make sense as we transform and evolve. Our knowledge and experiences grow over time which can have a profound effect on the religions we practice or the metaphysical beliefs we incorporate.
Many people are born into families which have a certain faith and regularly attend church services, classes and events as a family. They may expect that their children will follow their lead and remain faithful to their parents’ religious beliefs. Others grow up without religious training or parents who leave it up to their children to decide what path to take in regards to their spirituality, without judgment. While there is beauty in keeping the faith and following certain beliefs throughout a lifetime, it’s important to remember that others are free to believe as they wish.
Regular spiritual practice or following a certain religion helps us to feel supported and grounded in our life and helps calm our anxieties about life after physical death. When we question long-held beliefs and practices we begin a journey of freedom to explore and seek clarity. Our personal life experiences, flavored with curiosity, can lead us to pursue other paths which feel true to our soul. Someone who is highly intuitive or psychic has unique connections to the spirit world in very profound ways. Certain religions are not accepting of these attributes and may have strict rules against it. Someone who is from the LGBTQ+ community can also face criticism and extreme judgment. They may want to practice the religion they were raised in but suffer from the lack of support or understanding, becoming fearful of living in their truth. So many are afraid to speak up and they remain isolated. Others reach out to those who are more accepting and are able to thrive in their newfound community, feeling love and appreciation.
When we seek to have clarity in our soul through expanding our spiritual knowledge, we can gain incredible courage. It becomes extremely important for us to accept ourselves even if we don’t fit the mold of what might be considered ‘normal’. If we believe that we are here with a purpose and know that our struggles and challenges are part of that purpose, we learn acceptance. We can live without judgment of others, even if we have been judged. Fear can hold us back from expressing ourselves! In the same way fear causes others to lash out at what or who they are unable to relate to.
As we evolve into our true selves we are free to live our lives. Finding our soul friends and communities is also key in feeling we have support with others who live and believe as we do. The journey of finding new ideals, leaving others behind, is a process. Our souls crave to find peace and understanding while we live out our lives on Earth. When we feel acceptance on our quest for spiritual independence, we open up a whole new world of possibilities.
As we examine what resonates with us spiritually, it can be incredibly exciting to discover things we had never considered or been exposed to in the past. The study of metaphysics, energy healing, unexplained phenomena and psychic ability opens our minds and hearts to other possibilities which transform us for the better. The more we educate ourselves through these studies, along with all the good of the religions of the world, the more we realize there are many ways to celebrate our amazing abilities as soul energy.
When we all learn to respect each other, no matter what our religions, beliefs or way of living, we realize that what we have in common is much greater than our differences.
