For you today I wanted to share an email I received from a client after she did the “Get Your Energy Back” Process I offer in my business. How it works is you take a 20-minute online self-assessment and then we schedule 75 minutes to debrief your results. During that debrief session we uncover where your sources of stress are coming from and what you can do to alleviate it so you greatly reduce, and for some completely remove, those triggers for stress. It also gives you a process to continue this work as you become aware of other triggers that hide under the surface until the crop up and blindside you. You all know what I’m talking about. J
Even before meeting me this particular client had been working on developing a greater level of consciousness and she was in a place where she felt caught between the new perspectives, thoughts and ideas she was being exposed to and her parent’s counsel to seek her truth from a more traditional source.
Here’s what her email said…
I'm having a hard time relating my personal feelings of "Aha!" that I felt when I read [Eckhart] Tolle's work to the background both of my parents have in the bible.
That's a poorly worded sentence. How do I explain??
When I told my parents about my new discovery of enlightenment, they were quick to try to redirect me to the bible (dad, especially). Almost as though what I was learning was wrong, and I needed to get closer to God to fix this. But I've never felt closer to God than I do now.
So how do the teachings of the bible fit in to this? Admittedly, it's been a loooong time since I've attended church, and the style of the bible's writings just don't interest me. I have a hard time following it. But I want to understand the connection so that I can bridge the gap with my Dad.
I ask because you mentioned God a few times during the assessment, and I thought you might have some insight.
I almost feel like the bible is the basic how-to guide, and maybe even a little bit of backstory on why, while this new consciousness trajectory is simply mankind finally "getting it" and seeing the bigger picture of where things need to go in order to reach that final destination of heaven on earth. How do you see it?
Ok, back to work I go! ;)”
What a great question!! What was so special about this question for me is it paralleled my own internal journey with my faith and spirituality.
I’m sharing with you my response to this email and I want to be clear, I have no degrees in theology, I do not represent any organizations and I am not an expert on God, consciousness or human evolution. My response to this email reflects my journey and my perspective. I offer it here because it was helpful to the woman who reached out to me and it may be helpful to some of you.
Here was my response...
