When you are on a spiritual path, there are many pitfalls and traps. We desire to act and be as spiritual beings in the world, but one of the biggest traps is to use what I refer to as “Spiritual Bypassing” as a way to negate and hide our true feelings and buried emotions.

We all have wounds and traumas in our life that need our attention and love. When it becomes too difficult and painful to look at ourselves, we can easily bypass the honest and authentic “work” of facing our deepest fears. It is an understatement to say it is challenging as we are asked to be deeply vulnerable, accepting, and forgiving.

Together, we can become aware of how spiritual bypassing has allowed us to cover up our ability to heal and love in a deeper way… only then can we recognize true spirituality as we become more authentically aligned with who we are.
