Every so often, I get asked by someone if I would help someone they know who is struggling but adamant they are not open to a spiritual approach. There are those who have been struggling for years, yet unwilling to explore a different way of finding a way out. They seem to think that spirituality is impractical and that they only want “practical” help. They belief that if they ‘go spiritual’ they would ignore their problems and then their problems would escalate – and they would end up losing everything else they have. What they fail to see is that the spiritual approach can be the most effective way of solving problems in the practical world.

Almost everyone has had moments in their lives when they feel as if they have run out of resources, solutions, answers. This may be paired with symptoms of anxiety, depression, addictive behaviours or self-beating patterns. The bottom line is, you feel stuck, trapped in a place where you don’t want to be, and you can’t see a way out. In this state, it is easy to conclude that you have nothing left.
It is an illusion that you have exhausted everything you have. It is simply a state you find yourself in, and it is just one perspective. Depending on the angle of your perception, that can be true or that can be untrue. With a slight shift in perspective, you can shift into a whole different reality where suddenly you can see and access so much more.
