Welcome back to another episode of the show. This is the show that helps and encourages you on your journey to unlock your magic mojo. With me, as always, is The Spirit Doctor, Kelle Sparta. Kelly, I want to ask how you’re doing, but I know how you’re doing.
Ninety percent of my life is in boxes. That’s how I’m doing. I’m learning how much I don’t need.
That works, then. It’s a perfect time of year to have all kinds of turmoil and upheaval in your life.
We didn’t do the holidays because we were too tired from moving. We were like, “We’re going to do it this year,” and then not so much.
You are creating a new tradition and I don’t know that you like it very much.
That’s all right. It’s worth it. That’s the thing. You’ve got to recognize that while it may be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and icky at the moment, it is a means to an end and that the end is worth it. You’ll get there. Try not to bitch too much along the way and try not to get into your victim self because it’s very easy to go, “What does this mean?” That doesn’t help. It amplifies the ick and it makes you more upset. It serves no purpose. Stay in the state of, “Things are a little bumpier than I’d like right now. I’m not calling uncle yet because it’s not horrible. It’s just not great.”
The good news is that when I get there, I get to have my new house and hot tub, which has been my definition of success for the last few years. It would mean I own my house and I have enough extra money to buy a hot tub. That’s what success has been defined as for me. I get to be like, “I’m successful.” There are little bumps along the way, but it’s no big deal. Life goes on.
That ties in well to what we’re going to be talking about, which is along the lines that things can get bumpy, but it’s all for the greater good of your own journey. We’re talking about spiritual awakenings.
What’s been happening is that I’ve been getting so many communications from people through Facebook and online. People have been setting up discovery calls. There is any number of ways in which people have been connecting to me. They’re all coming in and going, “Weird shit’s happening and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know that I want to be this person. I think it’s cool, but I don’t know what to do. I think it’s cool, but I don’t want people to think I’m a freak.” There’s this theme of people waking up and suddenly they can talk to ghosts or they’re channeling. They know things that they have no right to know. They have prophetic dreams. I wanted to talk to people about this because it does wake up some people. It’s right there and you’re like, “Now what?”
I get this from a lot of people who are tuning into this show. I feel like the show is drawing that particular group of people. I felt like it was time for us to have this conversation. If you are not one of the people who have reached out, but you still have that experience and you’re digging through the show trying to find an answer, I thought I would give it to you here. I thought that might be nice and kind.
A spiritual awakening is where you suddenly stop being oblivious to the spiritual world in some fashion. I say stop being oblivious because we’ve always been connected. Sometimes, we convince ourselves better than others that we are not connected. The awakening process can be subtle or it can be extreme. Based on the feedback I’m getting, it seems like now is a time when a lot of people are having that experience of the more extreme awakenings.
Those can be quite disorienting. Being able to know how to navigate the process is useful. When you’re waking up, the first thing I want to tell you is nothing happens without your permission. If ghosts are talking to you and they won’t shut up, you need to know that you have the absolute right to kick them out of your house like you do anybody else. Politeness is not required.
Spiritual Awakenings: Nothing happens without your permission. If ghosts are talking to you and won’t shut up, you have the right to kick them out of your house just like anybody else. And politeness is not required.
That makes the movie Ghostbusters a farce now.
Ghostbusters was never based in reality in the first place. The movie Ghost is closer than the movie Ghostbusters. When Oda Mae Brown told them to stop, they finally did stop, and that’s what I want to say. If you are not happy with what is happening, you can tell it to stop. We’ll start with that. Be careful that you don’t shut it down because if you shut it down, it’s harder to get it to open back up. The fear piece can be a big factor because if you tell something to stop while you’re afraid, you could shut down your abilities in a way that would make it very difficult to get them to open back up again.
Fear is a powerful emotion, and therefore, it is a powerful turbocharger. Therefore, anything that you fuel with that fear is going to be solid. If you say, “I don’t want to see ghosts ever again,” and you put a lot of fear behind it and you’re solid in that commitment, you can shut it off entirely. My mother did that. That’s why she raised me in the New Age movement. It’s because she scared herself. She shut it down with her fear and she never got it to open back up again, no matter how hard she tried. What I would say is if you want it to shut down, get out of your fear before you do it unless you want to shut it down permanently, in which case that’ll do it most of the time.
The second thing is there is a moment in this work where you come to a realization that you are no longer normal. The sooner you accept that you are no longer normal and that is what it is, the happier you’re going to be. The more time you spend trying to convince people that you’re not weird, the more effort you’re going to waste.
I want to stop you there for a second. There was something important in what you said. You said that you need to accept that you’re no longer normal, but you also said to stop trying to convince yourself that you’re not weird. I think that people equate not being normal with being weird too often. That’s an important thing you said there. It doesn’t mean that you’re weird if you don’t necessarily follow what is considered perhaps mainstream by societal expectations, and that’s important.
This is what I’m hearing from a lot of other people too. They’re like, “I wanted to have these gifts and I wanted to be this person, but I didn’t want people to stop taking me seriously.” There’s a way in which the woo-woo stuff makes people write you off, or at least that’s the perception that you get. The fact of the matter is that I’m grounded and solid. I have a lot of things about me that are non-woo woo. I didn’t want to lose my credibility, so for a long time, I hid out in the spiritual closet.
The thing that I’ve learned over the years is that the number of people who suddenly love you and think you’re amazing because of your woo-woo far exceeds the number of people who no longer take you seriously. If you are serious enough and grounded enough in everything else you do, they generally consider you eccentric. They continue to communicate with you with the obvious exception of the extreme Bible thumpers who’ve decided that you truck with Satan. You can’t do anything about those people. You’re going to meet people in life who like you and don’t like you. The more you show your true self, the more people are going to like you and not somebody you’re trying to pretend you are.
It’s the ability to show your authentic self. That is what draws people in.
I posted something on Facebook. I’m often getting the phrase, “Kelle’s a real deal,” which evidently is a catchphrase that I didn’t know. They want to be the real deal too, so they try to be “spiritual.” You don’t become the real deal by trying to be spiritual. You become the real deal by digging into your own self, getting into the muck of it, and learning how to love and accept all of who you are. That’s what makes you the person that people go, “They’re the real deal.”
The basic premise is you don’t have artifice. You’re just who you are. It is what it is. There’s no manipulation that’s necessary of others to make them like you because you like you. If you like you and they don’t like you, it doesn’t matter. That’s the challenge there. A spiritual awakening is going to bring you to that journey. The ultimate spiritual journey is into yourself.
I know it sounds like, “It’d be great to talk to my guides. I want to work with the crystals. I want to be this medium that can translate for people. I want to be of service to others,” which is where most people, especially the people who resonate with me, tend to go. They’re like, “I want to be of service to others.” You can’t be of service to anybody until you know, love, and trust yourself.
We’ve talked about how a lot of this journey is getting to know yourself. This journey of getting to know and understand what it is that you’re going within on, there’s an effect that it has on those who are without, specifically the existing relationships that you might have with loved ones, family, and friends. What happens there when something like this goes on?
Spiritual Awakenings: There are people in life who like you and don’t like you. The more you show your true self, the more people are going to like you and not somebody you’re trying to pretend you are.
The answer to that is it depends. I want to split this into two parts. There’s the waking up and seeing visions, having channeling, or all this other stuff that we’d talked about, and then there’s the choice to explore yourself more fully on a spiritual path. Those are distinct and separate things. With the waking up and the visions, if your partner is open to it, then generally, it’s okay. If your partner is not open to it, then you could have issues around losing respect, being mocked, or them telling you that you’re trucking with the devil if they’re super religious, in which case, that can be a challenge for the relationship. It’s very much about whether or not the other person’s on board.
I remember when I told my dad that I was practicing Wicca, he was like, “They burned people up there in Massachusetts for that 300 years ago.” I said, “They used to feed you guys to the lions 2,000 years ago. What’s your point?” His point was that he didn’t want it to be the case, but he wasn’t going to tell me that because he knew better. It did not bring myself and my father closer. We were not closer as a function of it. My mother, however, was super excited. She loved it. It depends on the person that you’re interacting with, whether it’s a friend, family member, partner, child, or parent.
On the spiritual development side, it is more significant because there’s the credibility factor piece that we talked about on the woo-woo side. On the self-evaluation side, I want to talk about romantic relationships in this for a moment because that’s the most significantly impacted one. Your partner either has to take the journey with you or it is very likely you will leave them behind. It can happen that you can take the journey without them coming with you and be okay with it, but most people aren’t okay with it.
What happens is that most people, especially those of us who control freaks, try to drag our partners along with us and say, “You would be so much better this way. Wouldn’t that be fantastic?” They go, “No. I don’t want to grow. Leave me alone.” Suddenly, it becomes this power struggle over who’s going to win the growth challenge. If you can allow your partner to remain who they are and not become dissatisfied with them for not growing with you, then you can continue to have a relationship with them. If you can’t and they don’t want to grow, the relationship will eventually peter out.
That goes for any transition you go through in your life. If you’re expecting everybody else to believe in what you believe, feel, or experience, you’re going to be setting yourself up for some heartache there.
This is one of the things that people have to come to terms with when they start doing this sort of work. The people that you are with in your life are people who are there because they’re at the same level of spiritual development as you are. They’re there because they resonate with where you are. As you grow, they will do 1 of 2 things. They will either grow with you or they will try and hold you back. The reason they try and hold you back is that they don’t want you to leave them. You growing forces them into a position of either letting you go or feeling compelled to grow with you, and they don’t want to.
The cognitive dissonance that’s created from that causes them to try and drag you back to be the person they’ve always known you to be because that’s who they’re comfortable with. You have to come to terms with the fact that if you start doing a regular path of personal growth, you’re going to go through fallow periods where you have let go of all of your old friends and you haven’t yet made the new ones. That’s a theme that will follow you in your life over and over again as you go through this process of up-leveling. Each time you bring in a new group, they’ll take you to the next level.
There are a lot of crossovers here to other aspects that people may be sharing about changes in their lives or changes in their lifestyles that go with personal growth in general, not just spiritual awakening, but anything that you’re opening up to your loved ones about that may be different than you shared before. There’s a lot here that comes to acceptance and understanding that you’re looking for. Also, you need to give it to them as well.
Another piece that happens is the hardest one to say because it sets people up for a problem. I’m going to tell you what the problem is. Oftentimes, people will go into a personal growth process and what they really want is the other person to change. They’ll start taking classes and then share the information with the other person in the hopes that the other person will change. That’s not how that works, whether it’s your partner or your parents.
The only way that you’re going to get a different response from the other person is if you become another person that’s interacting with them. If you behave differently or you are someone different from them, then you will elicit a different response, theoretically. It doesn’t work all the time. You can’t guarantee it. You can’t count on it. It’s not a good reason to do the work.
Trying to change someone else’s behavior is not a good reason to do work on yourself. You need to do work on yourself because you want to be different. You want to feel different because you want to take the journey. Sometimes, as a consequence of the journey you’ve taken, you behave differently. You interact differently. Therefore, sometimes, somebody else will behave differently back to you, but there is no guarantee. What I find more often is that people start the journey with the intent of trying to change somebody else and then they end up getting frustrated because they don’t want to do the work for themselves.
That’s very true. That’s important because you can’t force somebody else to make the change and you can’t base your change on what you want from somebody else. It needs to be for yourself. This is a lot of very deep, impactful stuff. You’re saying that people are noticing this. They’re feeling this and you’re getting a lot of communications about it.
Spiritual Awakenings: Trying to change someone else’s behavior is not a good reason to do work on yourself. You need to do work on yourself because you want to be different. You want to take a different journey.
It’s been an interesting journey. I’m seeing a lot of people waking up, which I’m attributing to astrological changes or we’re hitting some tipping point energetically. Something is happening that’s causing a lot of people to wake up. I saw the emotional awakening start to happen right after the 2016 election when so many people were upset and felt out of control. They started to say, “I can’t control the outside world. I’m going to control my inside world.” I saw a lot of emotional awakenings from that.
Now, it’s more of a spiritual awakening. I don’t know if it’s the same people. It could be. It could be that the emotional awakenings took a couple of years to percolate and then they’re resulting in these spiritual awakenings. It could also be that there’s another wave of energy coming through that is creating the spiritual awakenings with all of the downloads that we were talking about in the last episode that could be part of the cause.
A lot of people are having these woo-woo wakeups. It’s bringing them into a different state of awareness. With that, it comes with its own challenges. The one thing I want to leave you with on this topic is don’t try to control so much, specifically other people’s perceptions. No matter how hard you try, you can’t. The sooner you give up trying, the happier you will be in life.
I am going to encourage all of the people who read this episode to go back and read again, but this time, maybe with a notebook, because you gave us a lot of information in this episode that is going to help people. They’re going to have to go back and read it a second time because there’s good stuff in there. It goes beyond even the initial question of the impact of spiritual awakening. It’s the personal work in general and how significant that can be.
I say this a lot. This is the type of stuff that happens when you ask questions in our Facebook group. If you ask questions in there or you reach out to Kelle and ask your questions, it turns into an episode. Go in and join the Facebook group. You can find it by searching Spirit Sherpa by Kelle Sparta on Facebook.
Join the group. You can catch up with a lot of the people who’ve been guests on here. You can ask your questions. You can interact with the community, which is a huge and important part of the work that you’re going to be doing that we talked about, which is finding your tribe. That’s a lot of what you’re going to be able to do there in that Facebook group.
There are people who have said to me that they’re grateful for the group because there isn’t anybody around them who is of the mind for this, so having access to the group is a great way to create that community.
If you like what is going on here, then we ask that you subscribe to the show and rate it on whatever application you’re using. We would greatly appreciate that. There are lots of ratings coming in and they’re all very wonderful. It gives good feedback on the work that’s being done.
Thank you so much. If you’re one of the people who’ve rated already, we appreciate you.
That is all that we have for this episode, but be sure to join us next time as Kelle adds another chapter to your guide to energy, magic, and the spirit world.
