Lent: A Spiritual Approach – by Doreene Hamilton

It’s that time of year…

The period known as Lent is the beginning of a shift of energy on the planet. From a Spiritual standpoint, during that time people tend to release or surrender things that they no longer want in their lives, or things that have too much negative control in their lives. In doing this, you make room for the things you do want, from a higher vibration. You can release or surrender procrastination to make room for stronger decision-making skills and the ability to handle the task at hand..

2017 is a powerful year. In numerology it is a 1 which is the beginning of a cycle for the planet. What we do this year lays the foundation for the next 9 years of our lives personally and globally.

It’s a year of new beginnings, dreaming and laying down the foundation of greater things to come. You may have to do something different like step out of your comfort zone and end a relationship that no longer works. You may have to give up an old habit like procrastination, or the attitude of one day I’ll do this. Lent gives you an opportunity to surrender the old, think big and act bigger.

During the 40 day period of lent think of a goal that you would like to manifest that is doable if you focus and put your energy into it. You can write 40 articles in 40 days. You can lose 10 pounds in 40 days. You can submit your project to 10 or 20 viable companies in 40 days. You can change a habit or your consciousness in 40 days.

It Requires Desire, a Plan, and Constant Action.

This is not a period to judge yourself as to whether or not you deserve the good that you are seeking. This is a period to give thanks for the good that is coming. The good that is yours by your birthright.

You can release or surrender candy to make room for a healthier body temple, or to experience the true sweetness in life. You can release or surrender alcohol so you can more clearly hear the voice of God or your Higher Mind. You can release or surrender negative thinking or particular words from your vocabulary, so you can embrace love on a higher vibration, or draw to you positive situations in any or every area of your life. You can release or surrender a person or a type of relationship that you know isn’t good for you, so you can experience unconditional love. Release or surrender ego, or boastful self-talk, so you can embrace who you really are – a more powerful Being than you could ever imagine.

When you are surrendering something, know why you are giving it up. If you have something positive that you want to affirm in your life, this will make it much easier. What you surrender does not have to have anything to do with the positive you are evoking. You can surrender smoking to draw to you a new job, or prosperity. Feel free to create an affirmation or mantra that you recite daily to remind you of what qualities you are anchoring in your life, what it is you want to manifest. Always state it in the “now.” I am now financially solvent. I am now at my ideal body weight. I am now surrounded by uplifting, positive people. I am now vibrating on a higher frequency and draw to me loving situations in every area of my life. I am now… you tell me!

The dates of Lent are different every year and for some can be confusing. Some beliefs don’t count Sundays. However, if you’re building a new spiritual structure within yourself, every day counts. Lent this year is from March 1st through Sunday April 9th. It ends during a period known as Holy Week. A week in which you can commune with your Spirit and give thanks for the many blessings in your life. A week to be in gratitude for everything and everyone in your life. This is a week to visually see yourself filled with light. In doing this you are replenishing the void. The void left by what you released or surrendered. You are replacing it with light, with love, and with power from the Most High. This is actually something you should do on a regular basis to fill the void of what you are releasing. Then Easter on April 16th of course is your rebirthing. The new YOU emerges.

Ask yourself, what do you need or desire in your life? Then ask yourself what are you willing to give up, or release to obtain it? This is the power of Lent, Forty Days and Forty Nights to release something known or unknown that is blocking the resurrection of your soul on a higher vibration. Forty Days and Forty Nights to obtain a new or better quality in yourself, or something you desire in your life. Forty Days and Forty Nights to a better YOU.

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
