The 5 Secrets to Revealing Your True Spiritual Essence

“The cage has always been open, and the sky has always been there for us to explore. Feel the fluttering within, spread your wings and be free!” ~Osho
It can happen to the best of us, we reach a stage in our journey where we lose the spiritual plot and begin to struggle within our lives. Like a spider caught in its own web, or a bee who’s feet gets stuck in its pile of honey, we can find ourselves feeling trapped in a potentially enjoyable life situation that we created.
We can easily forget that we have the power within our minds to choose a different perception of reality, a new paradigm and perspective on the way things are. The solution however complicated it may seem, is really quite simple. We just need to stop struggling against life, against others, and use our imaginative power to approach it in a way that opens our hearts and brings a feeling of peace into our soul.
Whenever we feel stuck in life, it’s because of one fundamental reason. The mind is getting caught up in its matrix of desires. When the mind becomes attached to its tapestry of desiring thoughts, it turns them into demands upon life, and begins living in the land of yearning and forgets all about learning. It stops wondering, exploring and discovering who we are, what satisfies our soul and truly makes our heart sing.
The mind has this tendency to get stuck on certain desires it thinks will satisfy its soul, and ends up playing it safe, hiding, pretending, lying, playing games and sticking to what is comfortable and known. It thinks it will find security by repeating what made it feel secure yesterday and the day before. The mind then ends up losing sight of its dreams following everyone else’s desires, plans, and wishes instead.
Whenever we forget who we are and what our heart truly desires, the only direction to turn is within. We must shift our attention to our heart, to the very center of our being, and simply rest there. By relaxing deeply, naturally and peacefully within, we heighten our awareness and increase our experience of consciousness. This allows us to take in and enjoy the soothing refreshing healing qualities of our soul.
We can search lifetime after lifetime for satisfaction in the outer world, and we will never find it. The only thing that truly satisfies and heals us is being connected with our spiritual essence. When we are one with it, we are no longer living in doubt, worry or fear. We are no longer seduced by any thought good or bad for that matter. We are simply not entertained, or interested in the mind’s addictive tendency to follow every thought, impulse, and fleeting desire. We suddenly find ourselves becoming more open, curious and unwilling to become attached to any desperate desire that comes to us.
The 1st Secret to revealing the true spiritual essence within our nature is fairly simple. We must let go of all the ideas of what/who we think we are, and see the truth of who we really are. The spiritual truth of who we are is that which is beyond anything one could write on paper. It is an infinite conscious energy that is behind and beyond the mind. As we reconnect with this truth, all of our ego’s desires instantly get sent to the back burner. We come home to the source of who we are in life and are liberated by the sacred divine blueprint of who we truly are.
The instant we do this, we suddenly realize that we are free. We are no longer caught up in the mind, full of its stories and games. We see the Light that is always there within us, which can never be lost, changed or destroyed. We realize that our Light was just temporarily covered over by the mind’s complex and beautiful fabric of desires.
“It is within our competence to think and become bound, or to cease thinking and thus be free.” ~Ramana Maharshi
The 2nd Secret to revealing the true spiritual essence is to know that our true spiritual essence is always here now and ready to be revealed. The sun is always shining somewhere upon this world. The clouds, storms and nightfall will get in the way from seeing this brilliant clarity hidden inside us, yet once we stop all efforting, searching and scheming to find pleasure or fulfillment outside ourselves, we then turn out attention within. We must bring all of our attention, focus, and energy to the infinite source of love and awareness that exists within, directly to the source of pure consciousness itself.
It’s good to know that when we first look inside ourselves, it is often a very dark, confusing and murky experience. We might feel like we are entering a dim candlelit room after lifetimes of playing games outside in the bright sun. We may not be able to see anything beautiful until our eyes adjust. Our past pains, emotional traumas, and fears may be the only thing we see.
The mind’s attention has been focused so much on getting desires met from the outer world, that our inner world will seem like a jigsaw puzzle with pieces that just don’t seem to fit. Our eyes will need some time to adjust, and so we must be very patient about the time it will take before our real spiritual truth becomes self-evident and clear.
We must learn how to trust walking around blindly, using our 6th sense to guide us. We must trust one very important thing. The small soft candlelight in our darkness (which is our consciousness radiating from the core of our being) is never ever going to flicker or go out.
We must have faith that it knows the way and will guide us all the way through to the very end. We must trust that our little light is bright enough, and learn how to feel it’s gracious warmth, so we may use it to heal the darkest wounds lurking in our unconscious.
The 3rd Secret to revealing the true spiritual essence is having an infinite source of patience. When we begin looking inside, the ego wants to have a special type of experience. It often has a hidden agenda about why you need to meditate and look deep within. We must be willing to feel ok about never arriving anywhere safe, special or sacred.
There must be a willingness to sit with eyes closed in the dark for years, and embrace lifetimes and lifetimes of the greatest pain, horror, and agony that we uncover inside. We need a profound level of patience to dig through all the muck before we reach the gold, and this infinite patience is what allows our heart to slowly open and relax.
Our spiritual ego needs to have no pressure at all to find enlightenment or freedom. We must feel okay with having an infinite amount of time sitting in total darkness. When there is zero rushing, tension or urgency to arrive anywhere, the body, heart, and brain begin to soften and feel safe to open. This is Divine Feminine space allows us to truly feel the connection with our spiritual essence within.
The longer we can sit and relax with every burning desire to be free from all our suffering, the faster grace will fall upon us. However the ego is very sneaky and slippery, and it will make your inward journey seem like it is taking far more time than it should take. Eventually, the ego surrenders yet this usually is only after 48 minutes of sitting in silence with eyes closed. Just like water will only come to a bubbling boil at 100 Celcius, the ancient yogis say it takes 48 minutes for the ego to relax, surrender and come to peace.
When you find inner peace with your mind, your true spiritual essence reveals itself on its own. It just happens and can feel like it is a miracle given from above. It just naturally occurs that when the murky water is not being stirred up, the muck settles and everything becomes crystal clear. We find clarity suddenly, spontaneously, the very moment we are truly relaxed within ourselves. It’s as if a gentle breeze moved through our body, clearing away all thoughts and concerns. We feel honestly at peace with every aspect of who we are and who we were.
The 4th Secret to revealing the true spiritual essence is following the path of gentleness, softness, kindness, and self-love. Truly, the more often you practice being kind to others, the easier it is to be kind to yourself and move through the muck you find inside you. Diving into your darkness can become extremely painful, time-consuming or even tortuous, so it is immensely helpful to have the gift of gentleness.
Practice being like a flower, and allow for each experience you have to be whatever it is. Let everything be as it is. Don’t react or resist anything. Let your heart open continuously to life, as if the warm sunshine was continuously pouring into you. Give yourself full permission every morning to open up to the quality of self-love. Honor yourself, respect yourself, be kind to yourself and let yourself be whatever character in this grand play that God created you to be. You are perfect exactly the way you are!
Be present to the doubts, fears, and negativity of the mind, yet do not buy into its gruesome stories. Allow the pain to be there, feel it, breathe into it, yet dive deeper through it and into the divinity. This is inside the healing heart and divine core of our very soul.
When you allow yourself permission to love yourself, unconditionally no matter what, you feel wonderful. This love is not because of any reason or attribute you have or don’t have. You are loving you simply because it feels wonderful! Your love for you is a reflection of who you truly are. As you open the self-love gates you’ll find out that there are deeper parts inside you that need to be loved.
Learn to love all parts of you, and let this self-love shine upon the world. It becomes extremely helpful to have others in your life reflect your love back to you down the long haul. When you look at your friends and family with eyes of self-love, they see this and feel your love is beaming into them. What you then see is their sparkling eyes of love upon you.
“Love demands everything of you, yet don’t be afraid, go into it!” -Osho
Get your self-love engines churning by dwelling on all the moments of love you felt in your life. Think about who loved you, how they loved you, and how you received this love. Notice what softened you, held you, opened you to the greatest sensations you’ve ever had in your life. With love as your guide, your inner exploration will always be successful, and you will always find your way easily through the darkest night.
This love inside us is what ignites our path and natural ability to manifest any future that we desire. We can have anything we want with love, and we only find resistance and fight without it. In a life without love we tend to fall into “possibility amnesia”, believing that we are limited, disempowered, helpless beings who are not connected to an infinite source of creativity, energy, intelligence, and power. A loveless life leaves us stranded in a barren dry desert of the mind.
The great oasis we all yearn to find and drink from is the source of unconditional love, which is this small candlelight inside your being. By meditating on the awareness within you, the source of this awareness, this great love will reveal itself in time. We will know it’s arrival because we’ll feel the softest healing sensitive feeling which melts away our armor, opens our hearts and liberates our imagination. There is nothing out there in the world that satisfies the soul and assists us in lighting the path ahead more than pure 100% natural organic homegrown love!
The 5th Secret to revealing the true spiritual essence is making it your #1 priority every day to relax and feel into the lightness of your infinite being. Your spiritual essence is like the infinite sky above. It is vast, spacious and has no end to it. This is essentially what you feel like at the very core of you. Hold the intention all day long to relax into the vastness of the Universe. Feel the essence of your spiritual nature is not bound by this physical both. The light within you has many amazing qualities to it that will heal every insecurity, wound, and problem you have.
Don’t scoff at it thinking it’s just the mind making everything up. Your spiritual essence is real, and when you fan its flame all day long you will discover it is more than enough to make you authentically smile, dance, sing and laugh until your eyes are full of tears. Make it your mission in life to discover the resource of infinite energy that resides at the core of you, so you can enjoy your time on earth fully. It is a very long journey.
“Whenever we manage to love without expectations, calculations or negotiations, we are indeed in heaven.” ~Rumi
The journey within is as big as the journey into the outer world. There are many pitfalls, dangers, and many tantalizing seductions along the way. Chances are very slim that you will find your spiritual source. There are logical rational voices in your head who will try to stop you. They’ll tell you to stop looking inside and make you believe that you are wasting your time. Some voices will say that you need a religion or a savior to find Divinity, and try to sell you on their ancient values of what’s right and wrong.
If any voice in your head gets in your way, be patient with it. Let it speak and empty itself out. Just know that any forceful or dominating energy is always coming from pain. listen to your heart, and know that God is right here right now in everyone and everything. Yet, know we are arriving when we feel we are lacking nothing inside. When we feel we are giving ourselves a warm cozy hug all day long. There is no more amazing way to live your life than this. So take your time this year to truly dive deep and look honestly within.
Perhaps the greatest miracle of all is when we discover that there is no greater love than the one that we have for ourselves. Self-love is not a narcissistic selfish experience, it is quite the opposite. It’s like an overflowing river that brings life to all who are it’s presence. When the love we have for ourselves becomes bigger, deeper and more rooted within our everyday presence, we’ll see it manifesting and reflecting itself in everyone around us. Their eyes will light up and we’ll be able to experience happiness and appreciation within every person, place, circumstance, and situation.
