Growth: Why books, classes and information only gets you so far

When you are dedicated to your spiritual growth you often go through a period where you are so excited about it you read everything, watch everything and search for it all on the Internet. The reason we do this is to learn, to educate ourselves and to find all the information we can that's out there.

But this only gets us so far.

At a certain point, we need to begin looking within for the answers to our questions. We need to start to trust that maybe we have access to the answers we are looking for. 

There is no doubt that validation from others is absolutely essential to learning. It is so important to find teachers you resonate with and who can help you on your spiritual growth journey.

However, it's important to remember this:

The truth is, no one else is like you. No one else can do exactly what you do. We all have special and unique roles to play. YOU play an essential and vital role in the evolution of the world. The world will only benefit from your gifts if you are true to who you are. This is why it's so important to stand in your truth, to trust what you get, how you get it and what techniques you develop in your practice. Chances are, you are going to find something no one else has yet.

As we grow, we do need validation and this is why working with teachers and peers can be invaluable. And, there comes a point when you can step away from all the information that people have put out there and trust your own perspective. Maybe you see different things in your meditations, maybe you have discovered new techniques in mediumship, and maybe you are accessing new levels of consciousness and information. Beginning to see how you are different from what you have learned, heard and seen out there is when you begin to see your uniqueness – your specialness. You are developing the exact gifts that the world needs and only you can give them. You have something special that is needed and necessary to the growth of us all. Your perspective, techniques and information can perhaps be the very thing that helps others to find their truths and will shed new light on Spirituality and Spiritual growth.

Teachers are here to help us get from one place into another, and then it is our job to take that information and run with it. Walking a spiritual pathway is about discovering the truth that's within you-and then learning to trust it. You have something nobody else has and it's your job to uncover that diamond in the rough and buff it out. By all means, work with the teachers whose message speaks to you and follow the guidance from your spirit team to help you on your path. But remember, all teachers and Guides serve ultimately to empower you in growing your soul and consciousness into the whole truth of whom you really are. The whole point of all of growth is to put you in your own power. This means that ultimately trusting yourself, your path and your way is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to the world.

Martha Graham, the great modern dance choreographer put it this way:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
