By Delphia: Spiritual guidance is the process of becoming closer to God, or of learning and experiencing a personal relationship with Him. The seeker who seeks guidance shares stories about their experiences of the divine, an experience that transforms them and their relationship with Him.
This sharing of personal spiritual growth can take place in a group setting, with a teacher, or in solitude. Most seekers begin with personal readings or journaling, either alone or with a group. Many find that the most rewarding and meaningful work of all is when they are not following a spiritual path but are discovering and using a deeper level of connection with God.
Spiritual guidance is necessary for anyone who wants to grow spiritually, especially those who seek a relationship with God. These relationships often result in miracles, such as the raising of a person from the dead. They also provide us with encouragement, strength, and wisdom. A religious or spiritual guidance can encourage us in difficult times by pointing to resources and examples of people who have overcome great difficulties.
Their words of wisdom can help us avoid doing or saying something that might bring hardship to ourselves or others. They can also point to areas of life where we may be confused or discouraged.
Often, people enter into a long-term relationship with a spiritual teacher or mentor, someone whom they have felt close to since childhood. However, because of changing priorities or circumstances, these relationships fizzle out, and when they do, the people involved feel lost and alone. Sometimes this abandonment is out of fear of aging or simply out of a lack of interest. However, if a person has entered into a spiritual relationship with someone whom they love and find that this relationship is no longer fulfilling their purpose, they need additional guidance.
Spiritual guidance can assist people in leaving behind this past relationship, choosing a new relationship, and starting a new life of meaningful relationships within the bigger picture of God’s plans for them.
Some people find that their spiritual journeys have led them to places where they face issues with self-doubt or depression, loneliness, fear, guilt, and anxiety. It is important for these people to find a way to connect with others who are experiencing similar experiences. Sharing information with people within your own network of family and friends can help you find encouragement, as well as find the support you need to keep you going within your own life.
Spiritual guidance is not always provided in a one-to-one setting. There are many services that can be found online, in books, and through other forms of media that can be used to support a person’s spiritual journey. These services can be very effective when used in conjunction with counseling, therapy, and mentoring. If you find yourself struggling in one area of your life, such as your finances, you may want to seek professional advice and assistance. However, if you are struggling in several areas of your life at once, you may find spiritual guidance to be a great ally.
When a person has the proper amount of support from the right sources, they can use their spiritual guidance to help them with their lives in a number of ways. Often, people will know how to use these tools properly and effectively, but they may not realize that there are resources available for anyone who wants to tap into them. If you find yourself having difficulties in any part of your life, you may want to consider looking into the possibility of spiritual guidance. There is life after all, and being successful in life after the trials and tribulations is possible. You may be amazed at how well you can perform after you put your life on the right track.
