The spiritual journey is a windy path with many twists and turns and contrary to popular belief isn’t filled with rainbows and unicorns. Of course, the spiritual path can be blindingly brilliant and beautiful, radiant beyond imagining, illuminating, and enlightening. But it is also riddled with pitfalls, wrong turns, temptations, traps, and darkness which while very much part of the journey must be seen through in order for inner realization to fully dawn.
“We are in need of a spiritually informed psychology, or conversely, for a psychologically grounded spirituality.” ~ A.H. Almaas
We cannot separate psychology from spirituality. 90 percent of the spiritual path is initially psychotherapy. Dealing with our biographical psychodynamics is critical for our spiritual growth so that when we encounter mystical states of consciousness. If we fail to process our unresolved personal unconscious aspects we are able to integrate them and they end up becoming a stumbling block on our inner journey.
Mystical or transpersonal experiences can be extremely helpful, they have incredible potential for our healing and they can also be very disturbing and unsettling if we do not have a healthy psychology, to begin with, and if we aren’t able to integrate them into our psyche. Having a support system and a guide to help us interpret and integrate these experiences become crucial in the healthy processing and integration of these altered states of consciousness.
“We could simply say that a spiritual awakening is the beginning of the path of waking up from the dream of illusion to who you really are. It’s the starting point on the road less traveled. The spiritual journey is the path that you will walk once you accept the challenge that you are now faced with.” ~ William Bulter Yeats
At integrative coaching, we work on multi-dimensional levels; as much as you are willing to open up and explore. For each person the speed and depth is different and we have to respect your unconscious so that you begin to unfold the deeper layers of your being and build a stronger relationship with your spirit in a respectful and loving way.
“Materialistic science does not have a place for any form of spirituality and considers it to be essentially incompatible with the scientific worldview. It perceives any form of spirituality as an indication of lack of education, superstition, gullibility, primitive magical thinking, or a serious psychopathological condition. Modern consciousness research shows that spirituality is a natural and legitimate dimension of the human psyche and of the universal order of things. However, it is important to emphasize that this statement refers to DIRECT AUTHENTIC spirituality based on PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and not to the ideology and dogmas of organized religions.
Consciousness Is A Fundamental Primary Attribute Of Existence.
New observations show that consciousness is not an epiphenomenon of matter – a product of complex neurophysiological processes in the brain – but a FUNDAMENTAL PRIMARY attribute of existence, as it is described in the great spiritual philosophies of the East. As suggested by the Swiss psychiatrist C.G. Jung, the psyche is not enclosed in the human skull and brain, but permeates all of existence (as anima mundi). The individual human psyche is an integral part of this cosmic matrix and can under certain circumstances experientially identify with its various aspects.” ~ Stanislav Grof
