Spiritual Integrity: Live a Life of Purpose and Divine Connection

Jan 19, 2008
Have you ever made a commitment to yourself and not followed through? Do you wish you had more energy and space to create change in your life? Are you often confused about what your purpose really is, or how to manifest it?

Are you ready to step into your innate fullness and integrity?

Spiritual Integrity is a path to wholeness. When we live from our own Spiritual Integrity we follow through on our commitments without stress, confusion, or fear. We are constantly inspired and energized to respond to change with eyes wide open. We are clear about who we are and where we are going. Our actions are in alignment with our heart. Each day is a playful co-creation with the Divine.

Many of us learn what integrity is from the outside in. We take on rules and beliefs that are handed down from our parents and grandparents, church, schools, and communities. Often these rules are not in alignment with who we are, or are completely contradictory. And yet we still try to be good and follow what the outside world tells us we should be. Or we rebel, throwing our energy in the opposite direction without really knowing what is true for us.

Spiritual Integrity teaches us how to reclaim our truth from the inside out. At our core, we each have a beautiful and unique essence and purpose. But we cover this shining light of clarity and inspiration with layers and layers of other people's opinions, thoughts, and desires. We live not who we are, but who we believe others want us to be. We ignore our own truth with the hopes that we will be accepted and loved if we are nice. Or we spend all of our precious energy fighting other people's opinions. Spiritual Integrity is about the willingness to go deeper into yourself to find out who you are, beyond the walls of the known.

Spiritual Integrity is a re-membering, a weaving of our scattered parts into a solid whole. We step back into our Spiritual Integrity when our thoughts, actions, and emotions stem from our essence, rather than our strategies and old patterns. Each of us has tasted integrity, those moments when we feel open and aligned with our highest selves. These times are the ones we look back on and say, "Yes, that was my integrity. That was wholeness. That was my essence shining brightly in the world."

Mental integrity comes when you release your inner judge and stop punishing yourself. You view yourself with compassion instead of criticism. You learn from your mistakes gracefully, and can quiet your mind's chatter so you consistently hear your own true voice.

Emotional integrity allows you to release old hurts and find forgiveness for yourself and others. You are no longer trapped by the past. Anytime you are triggered by outside events and feel emotional pain you do not blame others, but use your tools to clear and open back to emotional fluidity.

Physical integrity arises when your actions align with your heart, not your strategies. Each of us takes on a strategy to help us understand the world around us and make us feels safe. When you understand what your primary strategy is and how you physically act it out in the world you come to a place of choice rather than habit. Choice is the foundation of physical integrity.

Spiritual Integrity is a cellular recognition that you are not your mind, emotions, or body, but the light that illuminates from within. As you move more and more into Spiritual Integrity your mind, emotions, and form become sweetly transparent, so the luminous light of your spirit radiates out.
