Spiritual Shiny Object Syndrome

Something I’ve noted with clients over the last several years is the level of discovery that they are engaging in.  I think that it’s great.  Before it was I will do me the business person, mom, whatever and I will go to my Spiritual Guide for the other stuff.

I have clients exploring spiritual modalities and experimenting with different techniques and I can share what I know with them.  But, what I am also seeing is Shiny Object Syndrome.  Literally, the attempt to amass mastery in many fields simultaneously or one after another.

While I understand that not everything you try will work for you, it’s more that people are trying everything at once.  One it becomes very confusing.  Two you don’t really know what is working and what isn’t and three, you haven’t stayed long enough with a topic to achieve any wisdom or skill.

I was talking with one young lady who told me she had taken an online course over the weekend with regard to the I Ching.  Very impressed with that I told her how proud I was of her, that it was indeed a study that would surely be very satisfying.  Oh, but wait, she was not only done with her study, she was marketing I Ching readings for others.  Wait, what?  You’ve studied an ancient tradition for like five minutes.  Sigh…..

I know there is a lot out there and there is great information too and you can feel like a kid in a candy store when you start to wake up but do yourself a favor.  Pick one thing, delve into it deeply, richly.  Truly experience what it has to offer and what you can bring into your own being.

Much of what you achieve in the study of any practice is equal to what you give to it.  The journey takes you on a spiritual path and what you learn about the practice, you equally learn about yourself.

There is no hurry.  No rush.  What you are meant to find will find you.  Stay open, stay curious and Enjoy the richness of the journey.
