Where can I go for a spiritual journey?
Varanasi is the world's oldest city, having been founded over 4,000 years ago. And it has since evolved into India's spiritual heart. It is the holiest site in Hinduism, where people come to bathe in the Ganges, worship, and bury their loved ones. Buddhists say that it was here here when Buddha delivered his first sermon. Witnessing the aarti ceremony at night, when sadhus demonstrate their devotion by raising flaming lamps and waving incense, is a remarkable experience for people of all faiths.
How do you get spiritual guidance?
Meditation is one way to receive heavenly guidance in a practical way. This method allows you to purge your mind of unnecessary information and concentrate your thoughts on the present moment.
Repeat the mantra “I am open to any message the universe might bring me” while you're meditating.
It's perfectly acceptable to substitute the word “universe” with “God” or the name of your higher power. The goal is to use language that have personal meaning for you.
If you've never meditated before or aren't sure where to begin, I recommend starting with this step-by-step body scan.

What does spiritual guidance do?
On our spiritual journeys, we all require company. A spiritual guide is a person who assists you in becoming more aware of God's presence in your life. Spiritual guidance may be sought to help you reflect carefully on your experiences or to incorporate spirituality into your daily life. At times of transition, loss, or disappointment, spiritual counseling can be beneficial.
Spiritual guides have been trained and have a lot of expertise in assisting people with their spiritual lives. Spiritual advice differs from counseling in that its objective is to improve awareness of how God is already functioning in your life, rather than to solve issues. We recommend a $50 payment for an hour consultation with a spiritual guide at Holy Wisdom.
A spiritual mentoring relationship's shape, frequency, and length are all personal preferences. Consider the following questions before hiring a spiritual advisor:
Is it necessary for your guide to have a certain religious background?
How do I get in touch with my spiritual side?
Spirituality is extremely personal and unique to everyone of us. Make an effort to connect with your spiritual side.
- Attending religious services or meditating on a regular basis are examples of active practice.
What happens when you have a spiritual awakening?
As Kaiser argues, this is the start of your spiritual journey, as you begin to doubt everything you previously believed. You begin to purge certain aspects of your life (habits, relationships, and outdated belief systems) in order to make room for new, more meaningful experiences. You may sense that something is lacking, but you aren't sure what it is. It's common to feel disoriented, confused, and down during this time.
What is a spiritual mentor?
The Holy Spirit, the mentor, and the mentee form a spiritual mentoring relationship. The mentee strives to learn what God is already doing in his or her life through this relationship, and thereby grows in friendship with God, identity in God, and knowledge of God's call.
What is your higher self?
The word “higher self” is used in a variety of belief systems, but its core premise is that it refers to an everlasting, omnipotent, conscious, and intellectual being who is one's true self. “Atma, the inseparable light of the Universe and one self,” Blavatsky formally defined the higher self.
