My month-long hiatus from social media is coming to a close. I’ve been in hermit mode since the beginning of April. I chose to go this route because I wanted to see 1) if I could do it at all and 2) I needed time away from others to focus on my spiritual studies.
I spent all month trying to focus on one path. This was particularly difficult because it’s syncretic in nature, which ultimately required me to look to the various paths surrounding it.
So, what’s the outcome of all this? What did I gain?
In all honesty, it felt great to be away from people. My energy was spent dedicated to myself, to further my own growth. At the same time though, I couldn’t help but want to share the info I’ve learned with others. That’s just my nature.
I’ve also learned – well, not learned per se, but solidified what I knew already – that it takes YEARS to learn a path. It’s the experience that makes it all come together and I’ve just starting to get to that point.
I think the most important part of this is faith. Faith in myself and that things I’ve done and are currently doing are working in my favor. A confidence if you will, one that I’ve not felt for a very long time.
I’ve been working with Spirits not just the archetypal aspect but the living spirits. I can say that my respect has certainly gone up 10 fold. My dreams are move vivid and the signs coming from the spirit realm have increased. In a way my personal beliefs have sort of molded too. I would still consider myself atheistic, but just from a slightly different angle.
Overall, this was a much needed break from the world to fully realize the state the world is in. This was originally just an experiment for myself which then turned into something greater. I’m grateful to my Ancestors for telling me to do this, and I’m thankful to myself for following through.
This isn’t a one time thing. I will probably do this more and more. I feel like now, more than ever, it’s important to focus on the self and to gain as much knowledge and wisdom as one can get before things get crazier in this world, but that’s for another post. Have a awesome day/night wherever you are 🙂
