Personal Beliefs and Values Change with Spiritual and Emotional Maturity
As you expand your consciousness, you may find that what you once believed as infallible and indisputable truth is not so infallible any more. We open to new experiences. New information, both from our internal guides and from scientific discoveries, alters our view of reality. In the days of Christopher Columbus, people thought the world was flat. See how “truth” changes when more information becomes available?
In my days of participating in organized religion, I was told what to believe, what to wear, where I could go/not go, what to eat or not drink, and what I could do to stay in good standing with God and the church. Now that I’m 15 years into seeking truth from within myself and from my own research and exploration, I’ve noticed that what I believe about life and God now is not the same as it was even a year ago. There’s no doctrine to follow, and everything I hear or read is subject to my internal inspection. I no longer have a plumb line or religious standard with which everything in my life must align to regardless of whether or not it matches my feelings or experience.
Spiritual and Emotional Maturity
We live in a time of rapid change and it behooves us to “update” our personal beliefs and values. Information constantly flows from unlimited sources–including what is channeled from higher realms of guidance. We are becoming emotionally mature in how we relate to one another. For example, as we grow spiritually we drop behaviors such as prejudice, gossip, retaliation, etc. and we find better ways to resolve conflict.
When I gain new information or come across a new teaching, I quickly test to see if I resonate with it. What I believed or taught a year ago–or even yesterday–regarding the topic is open to change. Each day, I get to decide whether I want to hold on to my personal beliefs and values or allow a new idea to merge with or alter my perspective.
“Each of us has our own truth. If your truth is like mine, it is malleable, rather than fixed in stone. My truth changes as downloads and new revelations are given to me either in my dream state, after speaking, signing, or writing in light language, or through my daily experiences. Our collective consciousness is changing as our beliefs, thoughts, and patterns are transforming to allow the body to shift out of its dense state and embody more of our higher or divine self. I would not want to be stuck in one belief system or be bound to what I believed yesterday. It is this kind of openness that allows us to make changes and progress in our personal ascension.” (Excerpted from Yvonne Perry’s book, Light Language Emerging ~ Activating Ascension Codes and Integrating Body, Soul, and Spirit, published in 2014.)
Many personal beliefs and values change as a person grows spiritually wiser or more emotionally mature. Please leave a comment regarding what you have experienced.
