Following the death of her youngest son, Amie Templeton spent years fearing for her sanity. It took several more years before the fog started to lift, and she began viewing the world through different eyes. Amie went on a spiritual search, and with each moment of enlightenment, a bigger picture was gradually revealed. The picture became clearer the deeper she sought.
Often, spiritual searching can be triggered by trauma, such as the loss of a loved one. It can begin at a time when we are at rock bottom, when everything that was considered of value is lost. At such times, we plead for answers. What is this life all about? What is there to live for now? There must be something more.
Anchored to the Earth, it becomes natural to concentrate on the physical side of life, when it is instead necessary to expand our minds. We need to learn to live as spiritual beings, each of us possessing a little bit of the greater subconscious. We all have the same potential for spiritual growth, which leads to a clearer understanding of others and ourselves as human beings. Just how long it takes for these changes to come about depends only on how enthusiastically we pursue our goal toward healing and enlightenment.
