Inner work is the very core and foundation of the spiritual path.
Without it, we’re wasting our time. There can be no purging, healing, transformation, and awakening without inner work.
You want a life purpose, a path to follow? The most worthy path (in my opinion) is inner work. When you commit to inner work, you are both turning your pain into power like a true alchemist and you’re also positively influencing others and the world at large.
What could be better than healing, evolving, becoming happier, feeling free, stepping into your power, living in harmony with others, and sending beautiful ripples of change out into existence?
But here’s the thing. Although inner work is such a worthy path, it is also a path we are secretly horrified by. This subconscious disgust we have towards any form of inner exploration is something you’ll need to understand well if you’re a serious spiritual seeker intent on doing deep inner work.
First, some basics:
What is Inner Work?
Inner work is the psychological and spiritual practice of diving deep into your inner self for the purposes of self-exploration, self-understanding, healing, and transformation.
When we do inner work, we are shining the light of awareness onto our inner landscape which is composed of the various layers of our mind: the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious realms.
Your inner self consists of your hidden feelings, memories, thoughts, beliefs, prejudices, wounds, shadows, and other mental/emotional conditions that influence your ability to transform and feel Whole at a core level. By doing inner work, you’ll be able to move past fears, limitations, addictions, depressions, loneliness, and the feelings of unwholeness that tend to plague human beings.
