Are Our Emotional and Spiritual Natures Not Important Because They’re Invisible?
Isn’t it strange that there are aspects of ourselves such as our emotional and spiritual selves, while so integral to our being and so important, remain such mysteries for so many people? Granted these aspects of ourselves are invisible to the naked eye and so it’s understandable that as of yet that there isn’t really a scientific approach to dealing with invisible aspects of ourselves.
Yet so many of us have felt and experienced so many things that cannot be explained by science or the western world at large at this point. But just because we are not currently able to identify and measure such phenomena, does that mean that our emotion and spiritual selves are not real? Indeed, are they not more real for us experientially than the mere material world that we are a part of every day?
I believe that our emotional selves and spiritual selves are not only real, but crucial to understand if we are to fine tune our wellbeing, and to find genuine and lasting happiness. Not only that, I also believe that our feelings, our spiritual nature and getting in tune with them is the very reason for our lives here in this world.
Given how important the otherwise invisible aspects of our nature are, wouldn’t it make sense that we should be able to understand them and access them in a scientific manner?
It’s Time to Be Able to Measure and Understand the Invisible Aspects of Ourselves
I believe it is time for such a thing. I believe it’s time to demystify the emotional self as well as the spiritual self and to harmonize all aspects of our being in a conceptual model that everyone can understand and apply. That is why I have created a model based on my own experiences with emotional pain and spiritual seeking that I feel makes this task much easier for people. I call it The Being Tree.
What is The Being Tree?
The Being Tree is a new philosophical and conceptualization of what we call the self. Similar to what we’d call the inner child, this model takes into consideration every aspect of our being including our emotional self and even our spiritual self. It is a model that shows how every aspect of our being, both seen and unseen are connected and work together.
By using a visual model of what our inner self looks like, it allows us to be able to have a barometer to measure where we are out of balance in our lives if we are feeling unfulfilled or unhappy in some way. The model of the tree and how it correlates to our being is as follows:
The soil that The Being Tree is in represents the mind in all of it’s aspects: unconscious, subconscious and conscious. This is what could also be called the shadow for those who are familiar with shadow work.
The roots of The Being Tree represent the physical aspect of our being or our bodies, and is where nutrients are absorbed up into the whole tree. Of course, this does not only apply merely to nutrients in the form of food and water, but to mental nutrients as well. This reflects our subconscious conditioning, our mental image of ourselves as a whole, and how we see ourselves, as well as our core beliefs and self talk.
The trunk of The Being Tree, or our core self, represents our emotional self and is the core connection between all other aspects of our being. The branches represent our social self and every aspect of our relationships to others, and the leaves, flowers, and fruits of TheBeing Tree represent our higher spiritual self.
Those with healthy Being Trees are well rooted, having healthy thought processes, a strong sense of self, and enjoy connecting with others along with growing and achieving goals. They are those who are able not to just live but to thrive. On the other hand, some of us have no inclination of our inner selves or Being Tress, and believe that life is simply one obstacle after the next filled with pain and uncertainty.
These souls have Being Trees that are stunted in their growth, perhaps due to lack of nutrients, water, air, or access to the light of the sun in the form of emotional, mental, and spiritual nourishment. They may have even been damaged by outside forces either knowingly or unknowingly.
For those with healthy Being Trees, their goal is to continue to grow and expand in joy and success, and even to reach into the farthest reaches of their being and realize their truest deepest self. This of course is the same goal for those with stunted Being Trees, but a process of healing and rejuvenation is essential before these Being Trees are able to flourish.
It’s Time for a New Approach and Model of What We are As Beings
A new approach is needed to both conceptualize as well as to experience we what truly are as whole, connected beings. It’s time for us to be able to bridge our emotional wellbeing and spiritual growth as well as to be provided with tools that are practical and effective in order to heal ourselves, empower ourselves, and to grow as much or as little as we would like in every area of our lives.
The conceptual model of The Being Tree along with The Whole Life Solution itself is the result of my own journey spanning my entire life to understand the root cause of my own suffering, as well as the suffering of humanity, and how to make things easier for people.
Welcome to the Model of The Being Tree and The Whole Life Solution
I have seen many therapists and have studied and learned from some of the world’s greatest teachers, healers, and guides throughout my life. However, I felt that a few things were missing in each area of personal development and growth that I experienced.
For example, if some schools of thoughts focused on emotional healing, they did not focus on the larger aspect of our spirituality, and vice versa. So after my years of experience, learning, and experimenting with new models that more effectively address these issues that I experienced, I am thrilled to be able to share what I have found and put together with you. I know that if you choose to discover the method of acknowledging, healing, and cultivating your own Being Tree, your life will never be the same.
