Spiritual Awareness

By Rev. Patricia Buben

Much of this class is organized around the fact that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.  It goes on to discuss definitions of spirit.  To me, spirit is the breath of life—the essence of a person.  It can also be described as being both immortal and intelligent energy.  As spirits, we go through lifetimes (reincarnate) to learn life lessons.  We continue to reincarnate as we have lessons to learn and when we have learned them all, we become ascended masters.  An ascended master is one who evolves to pure spirit.

The concepts of spirituality are easy and must be lived on a daily basis to become valuable.  There are many elements of spirituality that are discussed and all have aspects that are needed to develop spiritually.  The ones I liked best are:

·              Having heart or being compassionate
                 Understanding how karma works
                Learning to use your intuition
                 Reincarnation – how it works and why
                Being of service to others
                 Understanding death as a natural transition
                evolution of the earth – coming earth changes

                 Practicing meditation and several meditative techniques
                 Understanding energy and using it for healing
                Perceiving good and evil
                 Knowing thyself or "Gnothi Seauton"
                Learning how to see auras
                Developing your psychic abilities
                Being able to develop self-love
                Unconditional love for others
                learning to work with your spirit guides

Most of the concepts are very familiar to me and I have studied these concepts through research and reading a variety of books.  This course is unique in that it contains so many spiritual concepts in one place.  I especially enjoyed the different meditations and learning to work with my spirit guides.  In summary, I would highly recommend this course as it is clear, concise and all-encompassing.
