What is enlightenment? The act of enlightening is defined as "the act of enlightening or casting light where there was darkness". Spiritual Enlightenment is pretty much what all spiritual studies strive for.

This is such a universal subject it would be hard to put it into a can and give it a label. Mystics, theologians even religious fundamentalists all have people within their ranks that claim to have, or can give spiritual enlightenment. The bottom line is this; If you learn something deep, profound and true, and it sinks into your heart and becomes a part of you, then you have achieved, to at least a certain degree, enlightenment.

Many people attempt to directly achieve enlightenment through meditation, fasting, prayer, even occult means. Though many have tried, and many may have succeeded in gaining this knowledge, there exists today no one single definitive source of spiritual enlightenment (very religious people will, of course, disagree...), it is up to you, only you can find this path, and ultimately you must do it on your own. To give you an idea of how diverse the people on this planet are that seek spiritual enlightenment, here is a quote from noted scientist Albert Einstein.


Spirituality involves the recognition and acceptance of a God beyond our own intelligence and with whom we can have a relationship. This God can provide an experience of inspiration, joy, security, peace of mind, and guidance that goes beyond what is possible in the absence of the conviction that such a power exists.

Spiritual healing is when energy is transmitted to the person who needs it. The treatment works on the body, mind and spirit, which are seen as one unit that must harmonize for good health. If a separate healer is involved, the healer will place the hand on the person being treated to channel the energy from the Higher Source. The spiritual healing can help mental and emotional problems and physical conditions such as a frozen shoulder.

Spiritual healing is a huge need in the Body of Christ. According to the World Christian Encyclopedia, approximately 16 million believers walk out of the Christian church each year and most do not return. Spiritual sickness and disillusionment is at an all time high. In North America, an average of 1,500 pastors and ministry leaders leave their post each month, again, most never return to the pulpit.


Spiritual Growth in ways you never imagined with these stuides created for both group and individual use. Save time and money by downloading now and making copies for every member of your class or group.

Spiritual growth refers to awakening your dormant spirit. The goal is attained by listening to your inner voice with clarity and honesty. It mean understanding facts as they are, rather than fighting with them. Make your spiritual journey through these pages of spiritual realizations.

Your life as you know it, even now is a spiritual life. Even if you spend not one second thinking about God, your existence as a soul is a living testimony to God's love and goodness. You are beloved in God's eyes, even if you have no awareness of God or spiritual life. God's love formed the very DNA of your cells, and created you with purity, love and goodness in your heart.


Spiritual health is as important, if not more, as the physical and mental . On the physical and mental health depend our meaningful life and success in this world, but on the spiritual health depends our success and salvation both in this world and in the hereafter. You can perhaps consider spiritual health as an alternative medicine for your mind, body and most importantly your soul.

Spirituality is unique to each individual. Your “spirit” usually refers to the deepest part of you, the part that lets you make meaning of your world. Your spirit provides you with the revealing sense of who you are, why you are here and what your purpose for living is. It is that innermost part of you that allows you to gain strength and hope. Thus let us ponder over this topic over the next few pages. We hope this is going to be a nice journey for you.

For many people, religious or spiritual guidance, practices, and resources offer both great comfort and practical help in the face of death or grief. A number of established and emerging practices are outlined here, along with information on how to locate them. There are many ways of getting spiritual guidance. None of them is foolproof. The best guidance points us in the direction of self-learning; the worst strokes our false egos or pretends to solve our problem in a flash.

Personal Consultation with a Spiritual Leader. When following a religious path, it is often customary to consult the priest, monk, or rabbi. Such one-on-one consultations also occur when following a guru, shaman, nagual, or person-with-special-spiritual-knowledge. If you believe such a consultation would be useful, then I do recommend it; however, I do believe that you are likely to be too prone to accept whatever such a teacher has to say.

Spiritual Guidance is available through personal life path reviews, certified clinical hypnotherapy, shadow release, current life regression or, if you believe in past lives, past life regression.


Ganesha: Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha
Translation: 'Om and salutations to the remover of obstacles for which Gum is the seed.'

Lakshmi: Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei Swaha
Translation: 'Om and salutations to that feminine energy which bestows all manner of wealth, and for which Shrim is the seed'

Durga: Om Dum Durgayei Namaha
Translation: 'Om and Salutations to that feminine energy which protects from all manner of negative influences, and for which Dum is the seed.'

Saraswati: Om Eim Saraswatyei Swaha

Rama: Om Sri Rama Jaya Rama, Jaya, Jaya Rama
Translation: 'Om and Victory to Rama (the self within), victory, victory to Rama.'

Shiva: Om Namah Shivaya
This mantra has no approximate translation. The sounds related directly to the principles which govern each of the first six chakras on the spine...Earth, water, fire, air, ether. Notice that this does not refer to the chakras themselves which have a different set of seed sounds, but rather the principles which govern those chakras in their place. A very rough, non-literal translation could be something like, 'Om and salutations to that which I am capable of becoming.' This mantra will start one out on the path of subtle development of spiritual attainments. It is the beginning on the path of Siddha Yoga, or the Yoga of Perfection of the Divine Vehicle.

The Planet Saturn: Om Sri Shanaishwaraya Swaha
Translation: 'Om and salutations to the presiding spirit in the planet Saturn.'


Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.

Natural balance is key to spiritual enlightenment. Life in the Vedic times could best be described as a harmonious collaboration between spiritually evolved human beings and nature. There used to be a certain sense of beauty and logic in the way our ancestors conducted their lives.

Human beings in those ages had consciously made a decision to live harmoniously — in sync with nature and its rhythms. In fact the knowledge or gyan of ecosystems is not a modern science — our sages had been equipped with the same for thousands of years and it’s that very knowledge that let them lead genuinely happy and fulfiled lives. The concept of the divine feminine, which our ancestors believed in, had a lot to do with nature in itself.
