What is A Spiritual Bypass?
Sometimes, we are blessed with such beautiful expansive, powerful spiritual experiences that we believe that we’re done, that we’ve reached the highest state and don’t have any more work to do. But a powerful experience of the Divine doesn’t mean that we are now free of our human traits, patterns, issues, triggers and other issues. To try to whitewash or ignore all of that which is still very human in us is referred to frequently as a spiritual bypass.
In this beautiful video, filmed on the holy banks of Mother Ganga, Sadhviji delicately explains the traps that our Ego falls into, even when we’ve had very real, very powerful spiritual experiences on our spiritual path, and the importance of truly acknowledging, facing and healing our shadows.
