How To Spiritually Progress Every Day
As you spiritually awaken, you may feel that on certain days you are not really spiritually progressing much, and you end up just waiting for the next stage of your spiritual journey. But there are spiritual lessons to be learned every single day no matter who you are and what your situation is. Instead of waiting for unique and extraordinary experiences to come to you, you can be proactive in finding the lessons inherent in your everyday experiences. So I would like to outline the four key things you can do each day in order to keep progressing and learning on your spiritual journey:
The first thing you need to do throughout the day is to detach from life. This means not taking life so seriously. Life is a game you are playing with yourself as the One Infinite Creator. The less seriously you take it, the more enjoyable your life will be, and the more able you are to find the lessons within your experiences. The Buddha explained how attachment is the cause of suffering. This is because life is always changing, and things are always coming and going, so if you attach to something or someone at a particular point in time, you will eventually experience suffering once that thing or person changes or is no longer in your life. When you are detached, you are receptive to whatever life brings you and you welcome change.
It is important to accept what experiences come to you each day without resistance and without judgement. You do this by realising that the game of life is simply a school which allows you to learn more about who you truly are. Your ego loves to resists the challenges of life as it just wants a comfortable and predictable life. But your soul did not incarnate here for a comfortable, easy and predictable life — it came here for the challenges and to learn as much as possible. Would you really enjoy a life with no challenges? Of course not, yet your ego throws a tantrum when things don’t go as it expects. Once something happens in your life, you have a choice — either accept it or resist it. Acceptance eventually leads to learning and happiness, while resistance leads to unhappiness and prevents you from learning from the experience.

3) Tune In To Your Emotions
Emotions are your most useful tools as you progress on your spiritual journey. All negative emotions indicate that you are attaching to some illusory belief of separation. For instance, whenever you fear the future, it means you feel you do not create your own reality and so are separate from life. When you are angry at someone for something, it means you have believed that that person is separate from you. Instead of suppressing negative emotions, make a note of them (either mentally or physically) until you can do step 4. The fundamental illusory belief at the root of all negative emotions is the belief that you are separate from the One Infinite Creator, or God. Once you come to truly know yourself as the Divine, you will find that you no longer experience negative emotions.
There is something to be learned from every positive emotion as well. Remember, you are trying to reach the enlightened state of unconditional peace, love and joy. In this state, nothing that life throws you can disturb you or change your state of being in any way. You will be peaceful, joyful and full of love no matter what happens. Any emotion is an intense rush of energy and, whether positive or negative, is a disturbance to your state. Positive emotions indicate some sort of attachment to something or someone. For instance, if you experienced joy during a brief moment of the day when you were with your friends, ask yourself why you were not joyful before you met your friends? And why did you stop experiencing joy after your meeting with your friends was finished? In this way, your joy was conditional — you had to meet your friends in order to feel that joy. You have an attachment to your friends because you depend on them for the emotion of joy.
4) Reflect & Learn
After making a note of your emotions, it is important to take some time to reflect and learn what lessons life was trying to teach you during the day. First, you must allow yourself to feel each emotion with no judgement or resistance until the emotion has completely passed. If you don’t do this, a backlog of negative emotions will build up within you and, as I have explained in my spiritual awakening course, this can lead to ill-health, negative karma, depression, and sudden uncontrollable emotional outbursts. Here is my meditation that guides you through the process of dealing with your emotions:
Next, think about what illusory belief of separation was behind each negative emotion you experienced. And finally, start putting into practice daily affirmations and exercises that help you change those negative beliefs into more positive ones. For instance, if you found yourself feeling fearful of the future, start repeating affirmations like “I create my reality 100% of the time”. If you found yourself feeling angry at someone, start visualising that that person is you but in another body.
For each positive emotion, ask yourself what attachment was behind the positive emotion. Then visualise the thing you attached to no longer exists in your life. Using the example from earlier, visualise that you no longer have that friendship group. Do you experience fear or perhaps sadness as you visualise this? Why? Again, like all negative emotions, it is because you have some sort of negative belief. Continuing with our example, you may believe that you will be alone without this friendship group, and you believe that you will not be happy if you are alone. But as we know, you are never truly alone as you are connected to every being in this universe through your consciousness, and once you find happiness within yourself, you won’t need a friendship group to be happy. In this way, underlying every positive emotion is a negative belief and the seed of a negative emotion.
It is important to be honest with yourself about your emotions and beliefs. Your ego will often try to deceive you by suppressing your emotions before you have a chance to be consciously aware of them, and will often try to flatter you by making it seem like you don’t have negative beliefs. So it is vital to always be attentive of your energy and your inner state, and it is important not to believe the ego’s lies. Remember, the goal is not to be an emotionless robot, but to be in a constant state of happiness, joy and peace no matter what happens in your life. This is the state you are in when you have reached 5D consciousness, sometimes known as heaven or nirvana. Follow the above four steps every day and you will move closer and closer to this goal.
