"Is there a way for me to open the doors deep down in my soul that have closed?"
My Wiccan name is Zeawneis and recently I strayed off my spiritual path for 4 years and got married and had 2 kids. Is there a way for me to open the doors deep down in my soul that have closed? I'm done with my vacation and for now on would like to be back on the right path. Do you have any advice on where I should start?
Hi - well, I think marriage and having children is definitely a huge part of one's spiritual path, as we usually learn more about ourselves, evolve, and grow most profoundly from being in such intimate relationships where who we are and how we go about things is constantly mirrored back to us. There is actually NOTHING that is OFF our spiritual path, since there is nowhere where God is NOT, true? Anything you do, think, feel, or experience is all part of your spiritual practice. Oh - and by the way - having a partner and children is not something that you're ever done with, although I'm glad you have seen it as a vacation and not something stressful. It isn't something one can remove oneself from. However, we can explore and expand our lives to include other meaningful things as well, which is what I hear you asking for.
In terms of branching out to develop other aspects of yourself and your path, well, I'm getting that doing some holotropic breathwork would be a good place to start, as well as becoming involved with some high consciousness women's workshops or circles in your area.
