Don’t Park Your Spirit
I can’t come from ego. When I say how unbelievably brilliant my spiritual journey has been, it is not from ego. I’m not waving a medal saying, “look at me, I bet you want some of what I have.” The reason I say anything is because I am the potential we all have. I am living the promise. Every one of us can get to where I am spiritually, but most of us stop somewhere along the way, and we park our spirit.
After walking away from the childhood abuse victim role I played so well for almost 35 years, my entire adult life has been seeking and searching for something. I took countless courses, workshops, and seminars, hoping to figure out what that big thing was I was supposed to be doing while I was on this planet. I always knew I was close, but every time I thought I was finally on the right track, I came up short, having that empty ‘where do I go from here’ feeling.
I have been in such a beautiful place of peace, tranquility, and happiness for the last three years. I am present at all times.
I realized a few days ago that I never call anyone. I never reach out or text anyone – ever. If there is a need, or if someone calls or texts me, I will respond. I realized I never initiate any conversations. I wrote this down in my journal the other day, and then I also knew why I am this way.
Because I am present, I’m not in the world of thinking about anyone, anything, or a to-do list. Stuff doesn’t cross my mind. I never can miss anyone because I’m not thinking about them. I don’t worry or fret about anything. It’s not personal, but no one ever enters my mind. Nothing does.
However, when someone calls me, I will scale the couch to get to the phone. The handful of people who call me every time we talk is a beautifully profound conversation. We both always leave each other with a gift and a beautiful take-away.
I have known for the last few years what I was searching for all those years ago. The search ended somewhere along the way, and I realized I found the golden ticket. This is the brass ring we are all searching for. Living Nirvana daily was worth the journey. But it is a way we can exist still as a human, but living fully from spirit. It truly is a thing, and any of us can get here. If I got here, believe me, anyone can.
I’ve had many friends and acquaintances since I started my spiritual journey in mid-2016 who have come into my life and then went away almost as fast. We came together at the same frequency on our journeys, and while I kept evolving and expanding and learning more, they felt comfortable and cozy where they were. They just pulled up a chair and parked their spirit, and off I went.
As people I left behind stopped at non-duality, EFT, Reiki, or Law of Attraction, I’m here to encourage you to never park your spirit. Don’t find one teacher or guru and hitch onto their wagon thinking it is all there is. Read everything you can find on every single subject. Open your mind to receive recommendations from others, as they tend to be precisely what you need next on your journey. Don’t stop expanding. This will always be a journey, so don’t park your spirit thinking what you have will be all you get for the rest of your life.
We are eternal beings with unlimited potential. We create our own reality. Why would you stop anywhere along the path? You have the power within you to create worlds. Keep going so you can claim your power. Life is forward moving.
I know the next steps you have to take are scary, but they are so worth it. We did not come here to be afraid. We came here to boldly go where most people will never go. Where that is, is a place of unbelievable bliss. Living with this feeling is what you are seeking. You know it when you get here. You will see; it is unmistakable. You will also understand that you no longer fit in anywhere that you fit in once before. You know you are nothing like you once were, and you are in love with every part of the experience.
Most humans will never get to this place because it is unthinkable when you look at it through a human lens. The people you have surrounded yourself with your entire life are not on this journey with you. They are not ready to soar, and most of them want nothing to do with anything you have to say.
By listening to the guidance you receive, you know it is asking you to step light years out of your comfort zone. Taking any of the steps requires telling people that you love them but realizing they will never understand, and off you go to do the thing you must do. You will uproot everything that was your normal. Or, you will park your spirit and hope to pick up where you left off in your next life and live your mere human experience. You must take the steps.
Your guidance will take you places that 99.9% of us would never go. It completely disrupts the human dream that our beliefs have created. You have to remember, none of this is real. We all came here as a solo act to create incredible obstacles for ourselves, to get through them, and then move beyond. When you get beyond an obstacle, you open the door for so many beautiful experiences to arise. Until you come out on the other side and look back, you will never understand why we’ve designed such a crazy experience for ourselves. We must keep going as there is so much ahead waiting.
Sadly, you will walk away from relationships you vowed to never walk away from; but that was because of human programming and beliefs. You are not on the same journey as any other human being. You may cross paths throughout your days on this planet, but ultimately, each one of us has a very individualized plan.
While I thrive in bliss and peace every minute of every day, this is still a journey for me as well. I am here to teach, hold hands, and inspire others along their journeys. I just want to let you know that there is a level you will achieve after you’ve made those difficult decisions, where you will find that ultimate happiness eternally.
Don’t park your spirit. Keep raising your vibration, expanding, learning, growing, and above all else, listen to and follow your guidance. It will never do you wrong. Ever. I am living proof.

Excellent piece here Cari ! You really lay it on the line! Once we are “there”, there really is nowhere else to go, do or say. The enlightenment of the moment is, for me, more serenity than bliss, but that does not change it’s essential nature, merely my reaction to it.
There are so many good lines in your comments I hardly know which ones to praise! You have “arrived” – Well done! And you are informing others of how to “arrive” – Well done!
No need to write anything else, but if you do I shall be interested.

Thank you for your comments. My world has been spinning me in this direction for almost five years. The words are just now able to come out as I am no longer looking for anything. I’ve written thousands of pages over the course of my journey. Each one was the beginning of the book, until the next day and more evolution. Now, I have come to the place where I can share everything. So thrilled to be here in the company of people such as you, and Vickie.

I am so thrilled you are here too, Cari! Love you!

Cari, you might have been describing me a little in your post. I don’t contact people either and then I feel badly but it’s not like I’m ignoring them, I am just so into my “now” and on such a different spiritual journey. I love my “bliss” too and can’t imagine how boring life would become for me if I “parked my spirit”. I agree with Gordon here, Cari; This is the best piece you have written.

Thank you Vickie. So much is pouring out of me. I’ve reached the point where now I put it all out there. I am changing where I live and uprooting my entire existence as the piece mentions. When we follow our guidance, life is so incredibly beautiful – but it is the hardest challenge we ever face (following guidance), because it doesn’t care about who your friends and family are. It knows so much more; you just HAVE to trust that it will take you places you never could have imagined. And OMG…. it does!

This post has been the number ONE most read post, almost every day, since it went live on SA. This is a subject lots of people are drawn to, Cari. Great post!

Thank you Vickie!!! More is coming out of me at lightning speed. I am on fire.
