Over the years I have developed a very strong spiritual faith and alignment with God. This has been accomplished through searching, exposing myself to many various beliefs of others, reading, and practicing my belief on a daily basis and integrating it into my psychotherapy practice.
Essentially my belief has allowed me to suspend my worldly ego judgment in order to increase my awareness and understanding of the people that I work with. This, in turn, allows them to increase their self awareness, allowing them to learn to be forgiving of themselves and others. This will, over time, allow them to feel closer to their spiritual belief and feel more peaceful.
Those who appear to have the most struggles, seem to have less belief in God and are generally more resistant to having a belief. Belief is not something that can be force fed, it is something that people need to have a clear understanding of. They need to develop their own personal touch of a belief prior to expanding that belief into other areas of their life.
Our chosen beliefs are very empowering and direct our minds, our bodies and our lifestyle.
My belief is that we are either moving towards God or away from Him. It is primarily our egos that create the resistance in being with God and it is that resistance that I work with, inviting God's help as I work.
