Today I kick off ‘The spirituality series’ with the first episode. You do not to have to be religious or spiritual to benefit from this series. This series is here to introduce new topics to you, to help you ask questions and for you to use as a basic guide in your recovery from your mental health or addiction.
hi my lovelies happy Wednesday thank you so much to those who joined me for my livestream on Friday it was so nice interacting with you all and I apologize to those of you who missed it because I didn't kind of put out any details before it was a real last minute thing but I am hoping to make it more regular whether it's fortnightly or weekly I just kind of have to work out good time because a lot of my subscribers over in America or Canada or other places in the world and I'm in the UK so I'm thinking in an evening is good the only problem of an evening I'm usually in onesie with my makeup off and I don't want to be on camera you know onesie with my makeup up so I need to work something out which I will do and the only problem I found I came away feeling so bad I didn't get to say hi to everyone individually I didn't get to read all the questions and messages let alone answer them because I find it so difficult to I can read and not talk or I can talk and not read so I I'm hoping it's because this was only my second ever live stream that I will get better that's it say on Friday's video I mentioned that I want to do a series of videos on spirituality and today is the first video on that and I'm really just going to give you a little bit of an overview on the things that we will be discussing I open to ideas if you have any ideas of things you want me to talk about please leave it in the comment section and I can do that and I also want to point out I am NOT a guru I do not have all the answers I I kind of feel we're living in a really dangerous time at the moment there is so much information out there on everything that spirituality Law of Attraction there's the New Age movement and I feel there are people that are going down the kind right path I don't think there is one path by the way I think spirituality it can't be defined it's so different for so many different people but there are people that are genuinely spiritual and going down their spiritual path whatever path that may be but there's also people that think they are spiritual but they are being run by their ego there are people that are following gurus who have all the answers and I just I feel it's dangerous because what's right for one person isn't necessarily right for another like I said I don't have all the answers I don't believe anyone has all the answers so anyone that claims that they do I'd be worried about the saying like that I love is religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell spirituality is for people who have already been there and that really rings true to me I was raised a Roman Catholic my mom made me go to church every Sunday and I hated it and I pulled away from religion and I believed I did go through hell and during that time I questioned everything like first of all I believed I did believe there was a God and I believed he was Old Testament God hardcore God really punish you because you're such a bad person and you've got to do right and then I started to believe there is no God and now I'm not religious I believe there is some kind of higher power out there I believe that we know so little I believe there are forces at work like Law of Attraction I will do a separate video on it I don't necessarily believe law of attraction it's a wonderful thing I will discuss it in another video I believe that we have power within us within our mind again I don't think we necessarily always use it for the right purpose I believe I believe that we do have soul now I'm not saying we have a soul I'm saying I believe we have stone what you believe is up to you but I believe we have a song I love science and I suppose to start with the word spirituality freak me out because I really just kind of associated it with religion I now know you can be religious and spiritual you can also be spiritual and not be religious you can be religious and not be spiritual like but I didn't like the word spirituality because for me it kind of just conjured up Old Testament got basically now I don't think that way I like the word metaphysics because I like sciency stuff spirituality and metaphysics are very very kind of kinda similar kind emerge but they have differences I suppose metaphysics is looking outwards at the world around us at the universe and asking those deep questions a spirituality is about looking inwards metaphysics is about looking for evidence it's knowledge based spirituality is more of an experience so there are differences but there are similarities and I do believe there's so much that we just don't know and I know there are scientists that say metaphysics spirituality it's all kind of pseudoscience but there was a time where people believed the earth was flat apparently people nowadays are still questioning that but um science is kind of catching up in some ways with spirituality going way back before anyone was like before science had really evolved it was everyone was either spiritual they believed in like spiritual healing but now with science that's going to really dismiss and I think it shouldn't be I think the two can actually work really well together I think it's really important science it's really important I also believe spirituality is also really important so I believe we have a song I believe well science tells us that energy never dies energy can change form so for example if you have an ice cube you're warming up the ice cube doesn't disappear it will change to water so it will change but it won't go and I believe in reincarnation again I'm not saying to you reincarnation is real because I don't know that I don't have those answers how do I know that I'm telling you just what I believe the reason I believe that is the sheer amount of young young children who have these bizarre experiences where they know names and dates and when it's like looked up it's accurate and there's no way these children could know this stuff and so for me it rings true and it makes sense because I believe in the energy changing form and it doesn't die so it makes sense to me do I believe in past life regression I don't know people obviously can say they've been requests but obviously they're adults when this happens and they have information in the head it may be a figment of their imagination I don't know I don't have the answers I'm not saying yes people can or no people can but I do believe in reincarnation because I believe in reincarnation I kind of believe that we are here for a reason I believe we our soul has a purpose we have a soul purpose and many of us don't know what that is and it's kind of for me spirituality is trying to find out what what is it what is the meaning why am I here what am i what have I got to learn from and grow from within this lifetime so it is asking lots and lots of questions there is no right or wrong answer I said I believe we're kind of living in a dangerous time do you know I like I I was only I was watching a video the other day on this lady who does YouTube videos she's a makeup artist and she's fantastic and basically she has been bombarded with the most awful messages about herself like so horrible and I think I see that all the time people just turning on others and being so vicious and vindictive and I and I think is that how is is that how people treat each other nowadays why do people think that's okay why wouldn't people treat others how they would want to be treated I think a lot of us run on ego we think we know what's right we think we have the answers I think a lot of us can become materialistic like and want the nice things that we can see but I don't believe they make us happy either I I see like youngsters nowadays like especially young girls and they're like eleven years old they look like they're in their 20s big eyelashes and doing the PAL and all the makeup when I was 11 are still playing with my dolls like that we have a couple like with this world is becoming so image-obsessed materialistic and this can really pull us away from learning what our sole purpose is why we're here why we've been through what we have been through spirituality has like practicing spiritual practices have shown to have a really positive impact when our mental well-being now we're here because our mental health has suffered and the way I see it what have we got to lose with just trying some new things I like I said I'm not telling you to believe anything you might not believe that the soul exists you know it might not believe in a spirit but that doesn't mean you can't meditate that doesn't mean you can't practice gratitude will just be a nice person so you can still partake in this and try these things without having like being myth made to feel you'd need to believe a certain thing because like I said nowaday I really believe we're in a kind of time of change you're hearing about people all the time becoming spiritual and more and more gurus or of hearing I say gurus because how do they have all the answers but people so easily can fall into and think how that person knows everything they've got the answers because they might sound good and I think it's really dangerous you hear about like with the New Age movement and cults because people are just wanting to believe something so much and they just go along with it and I think it's really really dangerous so that's the last thing that I want to do with this channel because like I said I don't have the answers you don't have the answers none of us do there is so much that we don't know I really believe that our mind is so powerful that we haven't even scratched the surface and [Music] and I just believe that spirituality can be a wonderful thing but your spiritual path might be completely different to mind someone else's and that's okay just do what you're comfortable with and I think along the way you start to form your own thoughts and feelings on certain things I'm here just to discuss them with you and tell you my thoughts I'm happy to share my beliefs with you I'm not saying my beliefs all right I know I keep saying that but I'm not saying all right because I don't have all the answers and yeah cuz I just don't want any of you to feel like I'm trying to sway you one way or another all I'm just saying is when you've been to hell like we have spirituality is something that we're worth looking at it's worth us giving me a chance and just trying some things what you try and do is up to you and but I would just want to have those conversations with you like I said if you've got any questions please feel free just to ask them in the comments if there's something to discuss if it's something that I just have no clue about I will tell you that's not to say I have a clue without any of it but I can give you my opinion so I'm looking forward to doing this series I spoke with Corey from the borderline life and she might join me on my channel and we might do some videos together and she might give her views on certain things as well I think it's always good to have a variety of thoughts on this yeah I'm gonna leave that there guys I'll be back on Friday love you all later
