Spiritual Growth

How do you measure

Your spiritual growth?

Do you hope to achieve

New skills or sensitivities?

Or do you focus on

Your ability to love


Dear One, many who read this blog seek guidance for spiritual growth. This is why we ask you the question this day, how do you measure your spiritual growth? Many seek the ability to see auras, achieve mastery of psychometry, or astral travel. But is the study of these skills the true path to spiritual awakening?

Do not be distracted by the desire to add new skills to your list as if applying for employment. Is a person who can master many of these modalities more spiritually advanced than another? Do not compare yourself to another through the ability to master these skills, for this is food for your Ego disguised as spiritual advancement.

Dear One, self-reflection, and love are the true way to spiritual growth. It is not possible for you to love another unconditionally if you are unable to love yourself. How can you meet another without judgment if you judge yourself harshly?  How can you honestly show forgiveness or compassion for another if you cannot do the same for yourself?

To grow spiritually, it is essential for you to love yourself. For Dear One, are you not one with all of creation? The true power lies not in the ability to read the aura of another but in the ability to love.

If you focus on love, your heart will begin to open. And as your heart begins to open, it will unleash your gifts to be used for the highest good. Many of you have been focusing your attention on the wrong path. Worry not about your abilities to master these skills. For, indeed, your true gifts are often not what you have always believed.

Can you sit comfortably and give your full attention to another who may need someone to listen? Can you converse with someone with different beliefs than you and not judge them? Are you aware that every person you meet can teach you something to help you on your path forward?

Can you accept the truth that you are loved unconditionally by those from the higher realms, by your Creator? The way forward, Dear One, is to begin releasing all of those untruths you have believed about your limitations, worthlessness, and lack of connection.

Rather than surrounding yourself with those who wish to pursue mastery of specific skills, surround yourself with those seeking self-realization and healing. For, Dear One, it is through your healing that you will grow exponentially. Through your self-forgiveness, you will increase your sight and true perception of this world and your role in it.

Can you trust this process? We are not saying that mastery of some of these skills is not helpful for others. We encourage you only to pursue achieving these skills by first opening your heart to the love within and around you. Once again, we wish to impress upon you that true power lies in love and only love. It is the first step to spiritual growth, after which everything else will fall into place.

You are a wondrous being filled with light that wishes to shine from every pore in your body. Your higher self, your personal guide, wishes to guide you daily. Embrace this guidance by breathing in and out through your heart area.

Begin with your heart and allow it to guide you forward through love for yourself and others. Do not forget that All are One, and each of you has unique gifts and placement in this world. And often, it may be your mere presence that will best serve another in need. Trust in yourself and in your connection to the All.

Focus on love

And all else will follow.

Follow your heart.

Trust that you are capable.

Of miracles through acts of love.

Know that you are loved unconditionally

And strive to do the same.

Dearest One With All of Thee.


Join the Prayer Circle tonight, Sunday, @ 9PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time:

Send love out to this world as you join kindred souls offering up their prayers.

Keep the momentum going. Your input is needed, now more than ever.

I will add my energies to the loving thoughts you have for the world and your loved ones.

I’ll hold space for all across this globe to begin to love themselves as the first step in spiritual awakening. To be open and receptive to their connections to their higher selves. That all may understand how we are moving towards Oneness as we open our hearts to the All of Creation. May we all hold each other up with loving support as we inch closer to a new way of being.

Connect when you can and bring change and love to this world. Understand that there is a constant stream of collective prayer circling this globe at all times.

Much gratitude and many blessings to you.
