Spiritual Enlightenment: A Woman’s Emotional “Neti Pot”

If you have allergies than you know what it’s like to have perpetually swollen and stuffed-up sinuses.  It’s not pleasant; you can’t breathe; and you look (bloodshot eyes, red nose, blotchy skin) and sound (gravelly voice, lack of brain activity) like you just got up when actually you’re well into your day.  So, Kellie, what do chronic allergy symptoms have to do with spiritual growth? Glad you asked.

Stuck, Stagnant, and Spiritually Dead

It dawned on me today that when we are not spiritually and emotionally sound, we can’t be our best – the women that we are meant to be.  You know, like when your allergies are acting up; you don’t put your best foot forward because you’re too busy blowing your nose and trying to breathe – nothing feels right.  This is the equivalent of being emotionally stuck in second gear; you can’t seem to get where you want to go at the speed you need to get there.

Flushing Out the Garbage

After using my Neti Pot the other day, I realized how much better I felt – how much clearer not only my sinuses were but my mind as well.  The flushing of my nasal cavity brought clarity and opened me up for the activities that I’d been avoiding (housework, playing with my children, exercise).  With the pressure gone I could again participate in the things that usually brought pain otherwise.

Then I started thinking about what events bring emotional clarity – the kind of clarity that brings freedom.  My analytical mind came to the conclusion that when we are spiritually grounded, we are more open to experiencing emotions, engaging in healthy relationships, and journeying toward wholeness – the emotional “Neti Pot”.  Having a grasp of who you are as a living, spiritual being cleanses you of the negative hindrances that can hold you back as a woman.

Your Deeper Selfspiritual awakening

I’m not talking about getting “religion” or joining a church; I’m simply suggesting that you become aware of a deeper part of yourself that may be stagnant and “stuffed-up”.  Spiritual awareness and enlightenment takes time and patience.  And though you may have already experienced a spiritual event that changed your life, you owe it to yourself to go further; ask questions; seek the answers until you get them; then ask some more.  God, the universe, and your fellow humans will answer; they will join in your quest for peace, joy, and life fulfillment.  Be spiritually and emotionally well- find your “Neti Pot”.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

  1. Spiritual Enlightenment for me, is a waking-walking meditation. It happens everyday, all the time, with everything I encounter. It all is a reflection back to me of some aspect of myself, no matter how much I don’t want to look at it, or that I enjoy the view, it is all the same. I think that is why people like to be out in nature so much, it reflects back to them the beauty they feel on the inside…that simplicity to just be, free of judgment.
    We hold spiritual retreats in Hawaii & Mount Shasta, based on the principle that the island or mountain is your teacher/ your mentor, and you learn from it as it teaches you what your heart & soul are crying for. We simply facilitate the retreat, & our methods are based in NLP, Huna & Shamanism.
    We make a difference in our online community daily on Facebook, just look up Transformational Voyages there and be inspired by our daily quotes from Maui.

    Aloha Always,
    Tanja
