Preserving the Spiritual Self

hs-1995-44-b-webEven as we strive to better our human condition through science and technology, inside each of us is a largely untapped reservoir of wisdom that has been neglected, ignored or dismissed throughout modern history. Within each of us is a unique sentient being who is either allowing negativity to interfere with us, or who is waiting for us to wake up and start utilizing the higher level skills that could improve our wellbeing at a grand scale.

While we all begin our lives with inherent spiritual knowledge that could extend into adulthood, too many children face neglect, bullying and abuse that interferes with their happiness, health and spiritual strength. Few can grasp the extent to which a child’s life changes after they’ve suffered abuse, and the way in which these scars heal can determine how difficult one’s life will be. Moreover, the effects of abuse on children is more than psychological, reaching into the very essence of their being and, more often than not, resulting in a spiritual malaise that can further deteriorate their wellbeing on an ongoing basis.

When children bully other children, we becomeBalloons on the Ground outraged because their behaviour is unacceptable.  However, the behavior of adults who bully, accuse, criticize, threaten and abuse children with the excuse of protectiveness or discipline is not only inexcusable or unforgiveable, it also causes irreparable damage at the spiritual level. Once a child’s innocence has been shattered by the frightening experiences of abuse, it can either bring a lifetime of shame, guilt and low self-esteem, or it can trigger a self-preservation instinct that results in constant restructuring, adaptation and determination toward self-preservation. Once their trust in authority figures has been shattered, many survivors of childhood abuse find it very difficult to ask for help and they often become alienated while their spiritual strength weakens over time.

Through my many years as a spiritual problem solver, I’ve learned to identify and eliminate the negative elements extending from higher levels that linger and interfere with one’s wellbeing long after an abusive event that are not recognized or treated through other means.

From my own experience as a child who grew up in rather extreme poverty, I was subjected to various incidents of abuse, as a result of my vulnerability to and trust in the ‘pillars’ of my community. In elementary school, the fathers of some schoolmates made it clear to their wives in my presence that my impoverished appearance made me an unsuitable playmate for their children. (A great way to teach children social skills!) Not long afterward, I was sexually abused and threatened by the village parish priest. (Such a significant religious lesson!) Several years later, the high school counselor accused me of cheating on an IQ test, because he thought my grades did not match my high IQ score. (Definitely how to counsel and guide a child!) Although these other events in my life led to feelings of worthlessness and a state of confusion, I never ceased looking for solution until I found out how to work with my spirit.

Even if spiritual ground has been lost, we are all equipped with a connection to our spiritual aspect that can be restituted from its idle state and put to use! While practicing to refuse and remove the elements of negative interference, we can develop a strong positive spiritual connection using the Light* that will continue to generate sustainable energy at all levels of our being.

As we properly preserve and nurture our spirits, we provide them with spiritual integrity and positive knowledge to help them progress on their timeless journeys.
