Modern Day Mystic & Path To Enlightenment

 I recently just finished reading one of my favorite spiritual teacher Caroline Myss’s book “Sacred Contracts” and has really raise a lot of questions like “am I on the right spiritual path”? or “why did this happened to me? did I do something wrong to experience?”

Since I was a kid, I’ve always be interested in any stories or books about religion and spiritual stuff. As the time goes by, people grew up and start to worry about more and more things in their lives such as schook, work, money, relationships… all those has distracted me away from searching for my spiritual path. Untill the day of September 11 in NYC, I was living in Manhattan while all the madness had happened, it has brought out a lot of hidden issues I didn’t even know I had and I started to develop a very strong anxiety attack, worry and scared about just about anything ( it’s understandable after the dramatic experience we had as a New Yorker during the September 11 ). So I started to see a therapist and nothing has worked. so one day I just can’t deal with this anxiety problem anymore I pray to the universe ( I pray to all Gods, Jesus, Buddha…etc ’cause I believe all Gods are ONE! they just trandsform themselfs into different “forms” in different regions so people at that area can relate to him/her more easily, just my opinion) and say ” Please help me to take this pain away, I don’t want to have this anxiety attack anymore…” I was praying while I was at the barnes and noble store while my anxiety attack was about to start again…. after the prayer, it felt like my prayer was heard I found my very first Meditation CD by Caroline Myss “Spiritual Power, Spiritual Practice”. This 2 CD set has changed my life!

In no way I am writing this to say I’ve reach the enlightenment & has figured out all things, infact I am still on my spiritual path trying to find my way. But I thought just to share this with my readers how wonderful to have a spiritual life and practice and can enrich your life to be that much more colorful and fill with happiness!

From various of Carline Myss’ and some other spiritual teacher’s books and meditation CDs, what I’ve learned that benefit me the most is:
* Let go the desire to know why things happened the way it did, let got the need to have too much expectation of the future, instead live in the now and knowing that everything happened in my life are always happened with the best intention of me in mind and the universe is always watching over me! *

As many spiritual teachers trying to teach us there are a 7 powerful energy in our body called “Chakra”, by balancing each Chakra is the way to reach full enlightenment. Please click on the picture below to see the animated Flash Chakra charts that will help you to have a better understanding what chakra is.

One point Caroline pointed out that’s very interesting is that now the days, there are tons of those totally “Out there” new age groups & practices, try to reach spiritual enlightenment with out really “Working” on it! Thought just by chanting, dreaming or “manifest it” then you’ll find the perfect job, perfect lover and make a lot of money! Instead, Caroline pointed out that seeing your own energy is like a “spiritual energy bank”, everyday you have $100 worth of “Spiritual energy” to spend. You loose $5 here by thinking negatively about yourself, another $10 there jelous of that person or $20 dwilling on why this happend to me and feeling sorry for yourself… ect. so before you go to sleep when you meditate, you will need to “call back” the energy you’ve lost today and learn where you’ve lost your energies and try not to repeat it tomorrow. Without calling back your energy, you’ll go into debt! your body will be lacking the energy it requires to functions, then will start to effect your mind, spirits and health. So many people thinks just by holding a piece of crystals will heal you, but without having enough energy “saved” in you, you can’t unlock the “magic” of that crystal and it will remain just a piece of rock!

Ok, I am not going to babble on and try to sound like boring nun haha, here are some of the meditation CDs and audio books that has helped me to start my search on my spiritual path and all with very straight forward, easy to understand, no nonsense “out-there” new age bull! Also some beautiful incenses that only it smells good, but also offers employment for widows, abandoned mothers, and physically handicapped or unmarried women who otherwise would have no means of earning an income. A large perentage of profits from sales of the incense contributes to the health care, education, and vocational training for local villagers through Shanthimalai Village Trust in India, founded in 1985. check it out
