What is spiritualism?

**Spiritualism by JJ Wicks **

If you look up the word in any dictionary or on any computer in the modern world you will find that there is no fixed meaning of the word  – this is important because its true there is no fixed meaning of a word which evokes not only a physical way of living but also so much emotion.

You are not spiritual by gain nor by gift- it is not a religion – it has no rules…………. Everyone to some extent on this earth is spiritual (You are a spirit soul having a physical experience) – its the humanity effect which confuses the lines.

To be Spiritual is WITHIN you all – it is a way of life, it is the way you react, its in your words, in your thoughts, in your heart and in your soul.

It is not a set of principals you have to follow – it has no rules – it is just YOU. The more awaken you are the more you will see and feel this. And awaken is just a term to say how close your physical body is to the spiritual soul you have.

However, in saying that there are attributes you could use in order to say that person has a good soul – is an earth angel – or has wisdom – OR is Spiritual…. These attributes should include:

  • Love
  • Awareness
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Wisdom
  • Trust
  • Faith
  • Resolve
  • Forgiveness
  • Comparison
  • Caring
  • Giving
  • Balance
  • Tolerance
  • Guidance/teaching

The problem is that everyone comes here for a physical experiences and emotions  –  some of your soul journey contracts would have included to feel and understand these emotions – some of these you would not describe as Spiritual:

  • Fear
  • Anger
  • Aggression
  • Abuse
  • Hatred
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Yet these are all emotions which we may have encountered at some stage of our life here on earth as that is what we have asked for. They are not the problem – they are the emotional result of the problem – which is not even a problem its a lesson – the ultimate lesson is to recognize them and let them go.

If you carry hate with you all day long it will eat into you – the same as if you carry Love with you all day long it will eat into you… Yet you have the power WITHIN to decide which emotions you allow yourself to eat.

WITHIN….. This is the one word JJ keeps saying . Teachers can open the door for you – and I hope this note opens more than one for many – but it is up to you if you step in and go away and look within.

Look at the things which annoy you – which trigger those darker emotions – are these but a reflection of the things you do yourself? Is Karma reflecting back at you and trying to show you what is WITHIN?…. Could you react differently to the way you did before?….. Can you learn from a mistake?…. Can you forgive?….. Can you let go?…. Can you move on?…….. Can you grow?…….
