Spiritual Immersion is a process of revealing the ever deeper and richer layers of our spirit-selves. This Spirit-Self resides within our human form and can only be fully known through direct, personal experience. Only through this direct experience can you explore, experiment and discover your truth and live that truth.

Through these Podcasts we will gently immerse ourselves in the layers, the processes and the transformative experience of discovering our human-spirit. We cultivate a dynamic and awe-inspiring relationship with our selves. How great is that!

The 11 Big Take-Away's from Spiritual Immersion

These 100 podcasts have revealed so much to me. Here are the top 11 take aways, that at least for me, are the ones that will stay with me.

  1. We are always operating from a set of Principles set either by Consensus Reality or set by our High Selves, aka Spiritual Principles.
  2. No Path in Front of You is Your Path!
  3. I’m the creator of it all: Whether I experience issues related to money, health or relationships, the opportunity to reveal all of the ways I’ve created the scenarios allows me to make choices that can change the outcome in a heartbeat!
  4. Your attention is required right now, right here, at the deepest level.
  5. My intention and training to be dedicated to my intention will bring me to Light and Love. What is my intention? What is my deepest desire? What is my motive within this situation?
  6. The Now is the highest vibrational outcome of my life thus far.
  7. The process is simple, but not easy.
  8. Our attachments to the beliefs, perceptions, and desires hold us back from experiencing limitless potentially, as well as what is infinitely pleasing.
  9. Expectations too often veil the beauty and awesomeness of who you are, now, in this moment.
  10. To Thine Own Self Be True - Defer to No One! No more need to appear vindicated or validated in the eyes of others. One realizes one’s independence and one’s sovereignty.
  11. Compassion, generosity, & gratitude for 'the way that it is' grows exponentially as I release myself from the belief that I’m alone, that no one is to be trusted, and that I’ll never be enough. Needing to be right about all of that means I need to try and control the outcome always and everywhere. I’m imprisoned by my own belief system. To train myself to BE open to seeing myself and the world differently - developing a set of principles that honor my highest truth, then live in those truths - only then will I come to experience the engaged connection that I long to know and be. Yes. I long to BE engaged connection.

Thank you for your presence and your listening. I hope you have gained insight into your own personal spiritual immersion through these podcasts!

Life is a Who-Done-It Mystery Over and Over Again

Every circumstance is an opportunity to attend to the clues available always and everywhere. These clues have been placed there for your own discovery - so that you may stumble upon them and experience revelations and truths.

Where you initially may ignore them or deny their existence, inevitably you will begin to slow down and take stock of all the elements of the situation. Like Sherlock Holmes, as you train yourself to see and let go of what you are afraid to lose, intuitively you become more conscious of sensations that are caused by triggering thoughts. You can sleuth your way back to the source of the calamity and realize that you are the one!

Is My Life Experience the Chicken or the Egg?

Over my lifetime, did my beliefs and perceptions cause my experience - which reinforced my beliefs, or did the experiences create my beliefs?

We have to cultivate greater degrees of awareness of the source of our thoughts and the source of our experiences.

Only through the practice of mindfully discovering and revealing the beliefs that are the catalyst for our experiences can we elevate ourselves, our vibrations, and the optimum realization of our potential.

Cultivating Awareness of How We Create Limits to Our Full Potential

More and more often, I am aware of the times when I trigger anxiousness and worry. Do you see how I owned that I triggered it? I then become aware of the thought that is habitual, which is founded on the belief that something is wrong and needs to be fixed - and that that something that is wrong is caused by me - and I need to try and control what I broke or what I caused to break or be wrong.

In the middle of the night, when I have a triggering thought after hours of peaceful sleep, I have trained myself to be able to be aware of what just transpired, of what took me from peaceful presence to anxiousness, as well as to be more responsive to it in the moment. What happens is that I have a thought, and I follow that thought into my worst fears - more thoughts!

Because I’ve been training myself over and over again to be mindful and aware of what thoughts cause restless, irritable discontent, I’m able now to stop that trajectory of thought. I’m able to pivot, or to switch my thinking pattern to that which I now know to be my highest truth and knowing - that nowhere in my list of spiritual principles is there any mention of the value of anxiousness, worry, or fear. They don’t live within my spiritual truth. At this point of awareness, I can choose to remove myself from that old line of thinking, "disappearing" the anxiousness all together.

A few months ago I began a new hobby of keeping fish. As any new fish keeper will tell you, fish get stressed easily and can die. Sure enough, I experienced this, losing all of my tiny blue shrimp and a couple of my fish. I was in anguish and despair. I felt totally responsible for their demise, and totally helpless to do anything about it.

I continually study good fish keeping practices and have become somewhat more confident. And, yet, my fish are developing issues that, although normal for the hobby, still cause the fish and me a lot of stress.

But I’m no longer triggering myself into anguish and despair. Though I’m concerned and am being responsible as best I can, I now choose to take a different perspective of myself and this hobby.

I realized that I need to respond with confidence, respecting that I am being responsible and doing the best I can. I can drive myself crazy if I continue to pummel myself with thoughts of "pathetic, inept loser." Instead, I'm learning to see myself and my fish differently, so I can derive more joy from the experience.

This is also true with my dog Gracie, who is going through a few days of digestion problems. I can be responsible and calm without worry and guilt. I'm trusting that I'm doing the best I can with all the resources available to me.

These are practices that train me to continually come back to the spiritual principles that can guide me towards freedom and liberation from that mindset of limitations that was the only reality for most of my life. Hallelujah!

When Will I Arrive?

Lao Tzu, the great Chinese philosopher said, "The Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

What I want you to know is, with each step, there is an arrival.

With each step you are somewhere you've never been before.

With each step you have the opportunity to experience life anew.

Something is different within you, that you can come to notice and recognize the you that has just arrived.

Over and over again, you will arrive!

What's Really Happening When Nothing Seems to Be Happening

What else can be happening when nothing seems to be happening? Perhaps we are expanding our capacity for patience, tolerance, and our ability to surrender control and righteousness. Perhaps we are learning to be with "what is" with Patience - no waiting, just being. Perhaps we are building reliance. Perhaps we are discovering what it is like to live outside the paradigm of control, right and wrong, productivity and stress. Perhaps we've arrived at a level where nothing matters, and what if it did?

Trials and Tribulations of Becoming Enlightened

We tend to imagine that with enlightenment comes pure bliss, nirvana, joy and love. This is mostly true, but sometimes, more often than not, we are still challenged to witness ourselves enmeshed in the trials and tribulations of having our human experiences.

Dis-Identifying with My Past is Hard Work!

I’m not what I do. I’m not what I accomplish. I’m not the outcome that results from my actions. I’m none of it!

With the nearing completion of my intended 100 episodes of these Spiritual Immersion: Taking the Plunge podcast episodes, as it was with the previous podcast series, Aging Like a Guru - Who Me?, as well as with the completion of my most recent book,  I’ve Arrived! Well, Sort Of: 101 Discoveries and Revelations Stumbled Upon While on the Sacred Path to Who Knows Where, truthfully, I am at a loss.

 

On the one hand, I have an intention that my work reaches and inspires a lot of people. On the other hand, I train myself to dis-identify with the outcome of my work. It’s a challenge to hold both! Can you relate?

Looking to the Evidence of the Past - NOT!!!

Looking at the evidence of my past history reinforces me to not trust anything -- not my intuition, not God, and certainly not people. At almost every crossroads I’ve come to, I’ve been required to choose to either follow the belief of my past (aka, not to trust), or to voluntarily suspend my beliefs in the past and experiment with Faith-Leaping.

Let me tell you, Faith-Leaping is getting to be so much more fun. Try it!! You'll like it!!

Revealing Yourself One Layer at a Time

Throughout this spiritual immersion process, it often feels as though you are covering the same ground over and over again. It can feel as if you aren't make progress whatsoever! Yet if you were to really acknowledge how you have changed over the course of this lifetime, in relation to any particular situation, you will view yourself in a way that allows you to see how you have changed, and how you have grown wiser, more mature.

 

Taking the time to truly acknowledge the ways in which you've changed and matured will reward you with a strong sense of confidence, self-trust, and self-respect. These are valuable gifts that you can give to yourself with this simple practice.
