Is your spiritual journey faster when you’re single or in a relationship or with a family?
I’ve noticed this phenomenon several times. I can so easily get to this place where I feel a deep and divine connection when I’m on my own. The energy flows through me so powerfully. I feel like I’m vibrating at a really high level… then the door slams and my son yells- Mom tell him to stop bothering me~ sigh. It’s as if feels like I was floating and then came crashing down.
Those are the moments when I envy my single friends. They have control over what they do and when. Not having to answer anyone, only having to take care of themselves. Being able to meditate anywhere any time, using any method they want. Able to bring whatever crystals, decor, inspiration, music they want into their home, because it is their sanctuary.
And yet, when I stop to reflect, I know that I’m having experiences with my kids that take me to a new level in another way, as I witness how they live their life and how who I’m being impacts them. They are my mirrors, they show me where there are opportunities for me to grow. We get to have interesting conversations. They bless me with mind-blowing, thought provoking interactions and teachings from both them and my husband… I can see that this all helps me in my journey. To learn more, deeply and wildly.
So is one’s spiritual journey faster when your single? There’s no use trying to compare my journey with anyone else’s. They have their own stuff going on. The grass is usually not any greener on the other side, just a different colour of grass.
I picked this life and all of the juiciness that goes with it (although sometimes it feels more frustrating that juicy). The contrast, the learning experiences, it’s like things get up-leveled for me when I’m in that high-vibing space. It’s like I’m taking giant leaps on a bouncy castle having a grand time when I’m on my own. Then someone comes along and trips on the inflater and the bouncy castle starts to sink and curl up into itself. And I hit the ground and think man, what happened, how can I keep this thing inflated? How can I pump it back up effortlessly? And that’s the journey. How to be me, my true self more of the time.
I don’t think we can judge anyone’s journey as being faster, slower, better or worse. Each one is so unique. It’s like comparing clouds. All I can do is enjoying what is showing up for me. And see the beauty in it to enjoy each step of the journey.
