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!

I Feel So Alone!

Even though millions of people are simultaneously experiencing themselves in a spiritual immersion process, we tend to feel so alone in our own little world.

Even though millions of books are available, millions of videos and podcasts, thousands of Spiritual Teachers and Spiritual Coaches are available for support, as we go through our own journey, we tend to feel like there is no one else doing what we are doing. Why?

Each of us, in solitude, has to discover for ourselves who it is that is within us. We can only know ourselves through our own direct experience with ourselves. Who is in me, how I be me, how I do me, is unlike anyone else on the planet.

My own personal work, and these podcasts, can only suggest ways that have been part of my experience. I can share what I've learned from other spiritual teachers, but you have to realize for yourself who you are, how to do you and be you, by yourself. It's pretty amazing I think!

We Like Rewards!

Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts take on challenges to earn badges. They expand their breadth of experience to include activities that up until now have been perhaps outside of their comfort zone. But, for the sake of earning the badge, they assail the unassailable. So it is with life as a human-spirit.

A lot of people enjoy electronic games. There are all sorts of awards and rewards built into the process of advancement. There is acknowledgments of accomplishments - woo-hoo! There is also the training of one’s self to be responsible for the level of advancement attained and to be attained. These are very cool. Taking responsibility for your own life is key in gaming and in the real world.

So where are the awards and rewards of spiritual work?

Some religions and spiritual traditions say, "work hard now so you can get the rewards when you die." Racking up Karma Points - Yahoo!

Intrinsic rewards are built in to a lot of activities now that I think of it. Sports bring people to those sweet spots, those moments of flow, union, one-with-the... that brings then back for more. That’s been my experience of this spiritual immersion process as well.

Like any discipline - scouting, gaming, sports, surgery, with advancement comes fulfillment. Discovering the aspects of this spiritual work that will keep you coming back for more - well that's the real reward!

If You Are Exhausted Go Rest!

Quite often people who are going through a spiritual immersion process find themselves very tired. Why? They are detoxing and purging old patterns and old energies which takes more out of us than we realize. 

Instead of making time to rest it's easy to rationalize the fact that you don't have any reason to be tired, so you shouldn't be tired, so you ignore the signals that your body and energy field are sharing with you.

It is a normal part of this Spiritual Immersion Process to experience fatigue and exhaustion. And, it's really important to listen to those cues and take time to rest, meditate, listen to music, walk gently in nature, or just sit quietly, and of course drink plenty of water. Bringing your body to a state of equanimaty will allow the important detox process to occur. Rest brings your body to a state where it can heal itself in so many ways. Therefore, when we bring our bodies and our beings into stasis, our spiritual evolution can unfold so much more effortlessly. That is what I want for you, and I hope you will allow for yourself.

Canaries in a Coal Mine - Who Me?

Many of us on a spiritual path are highly sensitive to "the noise" of the world. In fact, we have little tolerance for a lot of what Consensus Reality takes for granted.

It's easy to judge ourselves for being wrong for being sensitive. And, it's easy for others to judge us for being too sensitive. The truth is, we are like Canaries in a Coal Mine. And we are essential as informants of what may need to change in the world to make it a viable place to live and thrive.

Learning Takes Place Only in This Moment

Quite often I'm frustrated by the fact that I seem to return over and over again to a "problem" that I thought I had a handle on. Over time I've come to realize that the degree to which I came to solve that issue has brought me to now, and this moment, and this deeper level of presence that I need to bring to the issue at hand.

We are never finished with our core essential life challenges. We are just learning to be present to the more subtle and refined aspects of what keeps those challenges in place. And so it is. In this moment. We learn.

Saying Thank You to Your Grumpy Self

We are so used to judging ourselves for being "less than." Thus, it's a very challenging practice to truly listen to those parts of our self that whine, judge, emotionalize, traumatize, and/or mentalize everything.

This podcasts supports and encourages you to listen to that part of you that perhaps had expectations of how the world would be and is in a constant state of grief for having it be otherwise. Anger, sadness, depression, despair, blaming, shaming....

Simple But Not Easy

Many spiritual leaders emphasize the simple steps it takes to get to spiritual enlightenment. Many forget, however, what it was like to discipline themselves to study, train, and be present to all the multiple dimensions that need to be attended to as one who aspires to, if nothing more, emerge from suffering and the agony of humanness.

Like any endeavor, one needs to have passion to even start to create the dedication and discipline required to make progress. Spiritual evolution is no different. It is grueling work. The rewards, though, are so worth the effort!

Dark Night of the Soul - It Occurs for All of Us!

Dark Night of a Soul is a process every human being goes through at some time in their lives - maybe even more than once. You are not alone, though you look around and wonder why nobody seems to be in the same degree of agony that you are in.

Though it is sometimes tremendously difficult to be immersed in the Abyssness of the moment, please know that you are not alone, and this too shall pass.

Karma - The Best Teacher in the Universe

Karma isn't something we have to be afraid of. Nope. Actually, karma offers us opportunities to be true to ourselves, to our principles, and to our values. Karma gives us the opportunity to question the reality we've created thus far, and the ability to see things differently if we wish too.

It's Like Getting a Rocket Ship Off the Ground

The momentum it takes to begin a spiritual journey is enormous. The trajectory is set - you know you are on your way, and yet, it feels like there isn't enough energy to get you off the ground.

Like a rocket ship, initially it takes a lot of energy to get off the ground. But once it's out of reach of the gravitation pull of the Earth, it's easier to move closer and closer to your trajectory.
