Growth, inner growth, is all about becoming a better version of ourselves. Growing is our nature. If you’re not growing, you could be feeling stuck or dead inside.
Inner growth is not about taking big leaps of change. It’s more about growing day by day, experience by experience, and moment by moment—all with your Soul’s guidance.
Becoming better than we were has always been at the core of evolution. Anyone can grow and should grow. It can either be done by setting up a new and exciting goal, or by learning something new that opens the mind and perspective, or by experiencing something different and out of the routine.
Why to grow
Whenever you have a strong desire, idea, or vision and you are not allowing yourself to follow it, you will not feel good. You might feel depressed, you might feel hopeless, or you might feel frustrated at the least. The reason is because you already had a vision and you’re not allowing yourself to go after it.
These visions are given to you by your Soul. They are your Soul's beacons of light towards your growth. If you have a vision that makes you feel you can grow and become a better version of yourself, then it is time to follow that vision. It doesn’t mean that you need to go at it full force—especially when it doesn’t feel good to do so yet. But at least you can start by directing your attention towards it.
When you reach those visions given by your Soul you begin to live a life you are happy with, a life where you feel satisfied and fulfilled, and a life you are proud of. Who doesn’t want that, right? So, if you really want a happier life, you need to support your inner growth.
When you can’t grow
Everybody is capable of growing. It’s just a matter of deciding and going for it. There will be times when growth at the moment might seem it’s just not possible, or it’s just not happening, even when you try.
Well, let me tell you, as long as you are trying, even if you feel there’s no growth, you are still growing; it’s just that you’re growing with pain. But don't worry, all experiences are part of your spiritual growth.
Growth with pain usually happens when there are invisible blocks that are hindering you. This could be because you may need to be more prepared, or you may need to experience something else first, or you might need to first let go of some mental patterns and emotional hurts. But, know for sure that as long as you try your best to grow you are growing and that's always good for you.
How to grow spiritually
When you consciously want to grow life begins to feel easier, less painful, and more pleasant. This is because you’re following your vision. Remember that rejecting, retreating, or staying away from your visions will not feel good mentally and emotionally.
So, the first step to live a pleasant life is deciding that you’re going to follow your Soul's visions. Little by little begin paying attention to the nudges from your Soul as to where and when to go, how to go about them, and how intently. Your Soul already knows all of this; why not follow Its guidance?
Start with these 3 steps to go after your visions:
1 – Be aware of the visions your inner self is bringing to your mind—don’t question, doubt or discard them.
2 – Ask your Soul for guidance toward the one vision that gets your attention—the one you are most curious about.
3 – Do only the-next-natural-thing to do— take one step at a time; the step that you need to take and that feels good taking.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.” —Swami Vivekananda
Don’t try to go faster than your Soul. Remember there’s a time for every-thing—including growth. You should be excited now because this is the beginning of your new life. The life you intended to live when you got to this world.
