Are You Overspiritualizing?

I often witness friends and clients overspiritualize their issues without dealing with them in an honest way. Some folks throw affirmations over their problems without getting to the root cause of their discomfort, while others spend hours talking about forgiveness with no real desire to let go. In this video Iíll help you get honest about how you handle your feelings and give you a concrete tool for truly moving through your issues.

You want to see over spiritualizing - look at the fanatics, being fed lies and fake Bible quotes getting them riled up and marching to stop all of us, me included, sinners trying to take over this wide wonderful world...How about advice for them - I, for one, would greatly appreciate it.

I think of emotions as the guidepost and street signs, not the road or path itself.
We all have the capability to choose a different road.

But reading, acknowledging and making a conscious choice to go differently is important.
Know your anger, your disappointments, your losses, all the things that weren't in your fantasy script for your life. Embrace them, even temporarily, and decide if it is time to wrestle with them or not. But painting them all over with platitudes and avoiding doesn't make the root problems, or our authentic reactions to them, disappear.
Instead, I find they fester.
Bring them to the light and finish the dance, and send them on their way.

This sounds like a person who has learnt that there are certain steps that they should follow in certain circumstances. It's almost as if they want input from the listener - who may be more knowledgeable. Where's the communication - only judgement..
