Like most things in life a healthy balance is required on a spiritual journey. It is important to recognise spiritual bypassing in our own journeys whilst also not focusing too much on spiritual bypassing as a means to negate every spiritual experience of ourselves and others.
When we are able to work through our emotions and feelings in such a way that acknowledges their presence, allows them to be and helps us understand why we react and respond as we do, we are able to move forward without employing bandaid strategies. Allowing ourselves to express who we are, loving ourselves as we are, leads to:
Genuinely healed wounds
A Greater connection within to that deeper universal place within,
A more wholesome and loving experience with ourselves and others
Spiritual and emotional growth
A happier life
When we are able to express how we feel in a sincere and genuine way, we are acknowledging our true nature and self. For if we are willing to be authentic and honest with ourselves, we are likely to be authentic and honest with others. We then begin to create a life in which honors the personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal and live with self-awareness and a deeper, more spiritually sound life, a life of integrity and compassion.
