Firing up the spirit will revolutionise your life from the inside out. New power flows in, spontaneity and inspiration abound, and a sense of inner joy and peace set their foundation in the bedrock of your soul.

You will feel a deep connection with life, nature and the universe.
As an average Joe Bloggs having a hole in the soul, a spiritual thirst or a massive empty feeling in the middle of your being is bloody annoying to say the least. It permeated every area of my normal life and daily living activities. It rises from the murky depths of self that even my consciousness is not aware of. If your like me, you’ve planned for a successful life, full of money, property, luxury and security. These are not unnatural goals for the average person. Most kids want to be rock stars, most adults want to succeed financially and romantically and we set about trying to attain these things. Continue reading “The Hound Of Heaven”
Sometimes the crushing weight of doubt bears down on the spirit like an anvil squashing a blade of grass, especially in these times. When corruption and the darker side of humanity seems to reign supreme from our leaders down to our neighbourhoods, it can be hard to see the good, feel any joy and get awestruck by the sheer wonder of life itself. Yet it’s still there staring us right in the face, every atom and molecule infused with life giving energy. The trillions of cells that make up our bodies perform their work fired by the primordial life energy that imbues every living and inanimate thing in the universe and beyond.

So your a druid? Or a catholic? Or maybe you are a hardened atheist?
SO WHAT …?
What has your belief got to do with anything. Do you suffer from an empty, depressing, uncomfortable and barely-tolerable sense of being within? If you do, it’s got nothing to do with your belief system in the origin of the universe or whether there is, or is not, a God. When the diabetic is diagnosed with suffering from diabetes, it’s not about his or her religious view point. It’s an illness for which there is a remedy. It’s the same with a hole in the soul.
I don’t believe in the soul I hear some of you say. Continue reading “Druids, Catholics, Atheists & The Rest Of Us”
When I am in the spiritual desert it is a dark, lonely and unforgiving place. It’s as if all the vast emptiness of space resides in this place. I have found myself in this empty wasteland many times in my life so I am familiar with it’s setting. I both fear it and dislike it. It fills me with dread, a kind of soul-foreboding and a sense of inner isolation, cut off at a soul-level from the universe and any higher power that governs it. In this place the darkness looms, the ground is hard and God is nowhere to be found. It’s like the universe has given me the naughty step. Continue reading “The Spiritual Desert”
No one likes to admit they suffer from self pity, least of all myself. When under attack from this dark attitude we tend to dress it up as something greater making ourselves out to be helpless and poor victims of life, abandoned by God and rejected by the world.

Doctors might diagnose a spiritual void and its symptoms as a form of depression or borderline mental illness, writing out prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-psychotics and sleeping pills. Medical practitioners do their best to tackle the symptoms and eventually may write you off as one of the defective human beings in life who don’t quite make the grade.

The mind slowly decays into insanity and starts to turn on its owner. Its negativity is lethal and can lead some people into taking their lives.

The ‘Punishing Mind’, termed in one therapy model the ‘Pig Parent’, is a forever critical and punishing mental state that affects one from the moment of waking to sleep. In this mentally ill state the mind turns on the person in a very similar way to when the physical body undergoes starvation; the physiological and emotional effects are extreme and dark. Physical starvation affects the mind’s ability to work healthily and the same occurs when the spirit is undernourished. Continue reading “Mind Decay”
