Has Your Spiritual Growth Been Stunted?

by | Apr 12, 2022

Here we are in the final of my four-part “Reclaim Your Power” series and we are now entering into your Spiritually Fit Room.

In Chapter 18 of my book The Powerhouse In You: How to lead with greater resilience, courage, and confidence, I ask: 

Has your spiritual growth been stunted? How are you blocking your spirit? 

Avoiding unresolved grief is one way to block your spirit. With every loss comes grief, a natural process that is our human way of emotional healing. But all too often, this normal process gets compartmentalized or pushed underground.

So what I’d like for you to be thinking about is this:

Have you given yourself permission, through all of this unrest, to actually grieve?

This could involve grieving:

  • The loss of hugs
  • The loss of certain relationships
  • The fact that you’ve been pushing yourself too hard
  • The loss of you/someone’s health

I’m a huge fan of creating a Joy List, writing down all of the things that bring out the joy in you. Once you’ve written your list, you can keep it close by and you can make sure you are doing it.

To me, that is where your spirit gets stunted.

Where you are giving away your power is when you are so busy being a “human doer” that you forget you are in fact a “human being”.

I would love for you to share which one action step you will do.

Will you:

  • Give yourself permission to grieve?
  • Do some writing?
  • Do some meditation?
  • Attend a class?
  • Participate in a retreat?

This is a great time to really allow yourself to take your power back. It is simply a choice but it is easy to forget that sometimes.

Have yourself a beautiful day!


BE more kind to yourself.
BE more compassionate.
Be more forgiving.
Be more loving.
