Would you call yourself a spiritual person? Do you love everyone and everything above and on this planet? Is your life perfect in every single way imaginable?
Yes to the first, no to the second and third?
The traits of being human are what make us special. It shapes us, moulds us and gives us our own unique personalities, foibles, quirkiness (a word that is accepted in MS Word but not in Word press), which beautifully brings me on to my rationale.
Individual, spiritual, inquisitive, uncertain, candour, integrity. There are so many words to describe our personalities, but there is no “one shoe fits all” and I feel that is how it should be.
Total perfection is an extremely difficult quality to achieve.
No one on this planet is completely flawless; although, by air-brushing ones real character you can certainly disguise a multitude of sins, from our fellow souls. All the while, our true self is dying to be a little mischievous or someone, somewhere finds us objectionable, even if we are the nicest sweetest thing imaginable.
For me, being spiritual is less about religion, your belief in the spirit world or spiritual theory, it is more about knowing who you are. It’s about accepting and knowing your self and about managing and accepting your expectations of, and respect for, others.
So who am I?
Well I hope I am just little old me.
I believe in the paranormal, I believe in communication with people who have passed on, I believe we all have a specific purpose, I believe in the law of attraction.
I like punk rock (my ringtone is The Kids Aren’t Alright by The Offspring). Some people possess an irritating gene, which I respond with similar irksomeness – some might call “small person syndrome”. I like the sun but the combination of wind and rain is aggravating. I love to shop but feel an air of disappointment when my bank balance is at the wrong end of the happy scale. I am both inwardly and outwardly noisy, so you could say both my brain and voice box are on continuous chatter mode. I am consistently right – which means I am accurately delusional. I rarely drink, as I am horizontal for two days afterwards, but I do smoke. Yes, I know already!
My husband likes 80’s music, our youngest likes anything catchy, our middle earth child like R&B and (ahem) ‘RAP and our eldest favours my kind of tunes. The immortal words of Madness……..“there’s always something happening and it’s usually quite loud”…….sums up our incessant music channel hopping household. My husband is also very much into meditation, believes wholeheartedly in universal law, and is a very good Clairvoyant Medium. But get him behind the wheel and he becomes angst personified!
But it’s OK, we are who we are.
We all think differently, we all like different things, people, experiences etc. But there is a connection between us. You have visited my blog because you have either been here before, you are curious, like-minded, or my post tags are completely irrelevant and totally off the mark! But then again you have read nearly the entire post haven’t you…………..…….?
Anyway that’s a tiny snippet of me*, outside of my “typical” spiritual reflections.
But that’s it, that’s the thing. You don’t have to compromise or change (not unless you really want to) your brilliant, diverse personality to retain your spirituality.
You are the wonderful and uniquely spirited you.
