The goals of developing spiritually is to move to a place within yourself of love, peace, acceptance, compassion and away from a place of worry, fear, anxiety, concern and trouble.
It is to move to a place of inner clarity and calm.
For many of us the process of moving to this place is a journey that takes deep emotional work, intense realizations and profound moments of connection and ah-ha. The journey towards a place of clarity and truth is marked with stepping stones and shifts in your overall state of internal being and external environment.
The shift to inner clarity and peace brings increases in intuitive ability expression and spiritual communication ease.
If you have been developing, opening and working on yourself and your spiritual journey, how do you know that change is actually taking place?
