Mentoring for Spiritual Development and Self-Mastery
Death Counseling – To help prepare for Death and the Experience of Transitioning
Spiritual Mentoring differs from other type of mentoring in terms of its subject and relationship to God (higher powers) and learning the practical processes necessary for developing ourselves to be “like God” by cultivating a virtuous nature and exercising our higher capacities to self-create.
Mentoring is different from coaching in the sense that mentors depart knowledge while demonstrating the attitude, characteristics, and behaviors of what they’re teaching. The most natural form of teaching comes by demonstrating and “being” the enactment of what it is your teaching. A Mentor is experienced in applying the higher knowledge being taught in their daily lives to produce the results it claims to produce. We can only really teach what we know how to do, and we can only provide meaningful instruction when we’ve used it to create in our own lives and we’re speaking from experience.
Teaching and training always involves clear practical assignments and direction for applying the knowledge into your daily life in order to consciously create by way of it. We only truly learn from experience, and we only have “knowledge of” what we can also do. It always involves a disciplined practice as the way of “becoming” one with the idea being actualized. The end objective of spiritual mentoring is for the student to become similar to the master, and therefore become a master and teacher for others.

What do we Mean by Spiritual?
The term “spiritual” as it’s being used here is not religious in nature in the conventional sense and doesn’t pertain to Christianity in any of its forms or variations (although it can be), but rather to the Universal Laws that govern all of life and the individual mind and body, which are the vehicle the soul uses to self-express and attain experience of itself through the reality of it’s own making.
It pertains to the invisible, energetic realm that underlies, produces, and maintains the material world, that are active in every one of us as our personal consciousness and life-force energy. It refers to the Soul as our individuality built up and formed through the evolutionary process of life experiences and memories acquired through many lifetimes of self-creation.
The Art of Becoming . . .
Being Mentored by a spiritual Master helps us to fully integrate various personal, social, sexual, professional, and ideological elements into a cohesive and coherent identity. It provides us with the processes and skills for learning how to intentionally create ourselves and our life with a deep sense of purpose. A Mentor helps us to recognize our shadow nature and integrate the fragmented aspects of our unconscious mind back into our whole being.
Spiritual Mentoring is a “relationship” between a spiritual teacher and student in the masterful process of learning how to employ mind-over-matter as the means of self-creating. Where you learn how to use your higher mind to regulate and control your lower mind, in order to create from a fully conscious state.
It doesn’t relate to any “specific” religion, spiritual tradition, or philosophy, but rather to “spiritual sciences” which forms the basis for all of them as specialized paths with the same ultimate destiny of transforming oneself to become “god-like” or of a similar nature to our Higher Self or Soul, and therefore an appropriate vessel for higher consciousness to inhabit and use as the means of working in the world.
The ultimate goal of all spiritual development is to rise above our formative conditioning as a “trained mindset” and use the higher creative capacities of our mind and soul to continue growing and developing ourselves through self-mastery.
The ultimate goal is one of transformation to a higher more virtuous state of being. The aim is to use the higher capacities of our mind to self-create and become fully actualized as our highest potential.
What is Spiritual Development?
The most fundamental purpose of spiritual development is to continue our creative journey of “becoming” through learning how to use our mind to create ourselves and our life experiences. It’s the practice of personal transformation by recognizing our own conditioning and poor character traits and using our ability to realize, choose, and actively bring those choices into fruition through our deliberate and calculated actions.
It results in mastering our higher mental capacities to facilitate the process of personal transformation by transforming vices into virtues, recognizing and correcting our own errors in perceiving and thinking, mastering our ability to control our passions, desires, and emotional states, and instead free up and direct our conscious energy into higher, spiritual ideas designed to ultimately allow us to embody our higher self and begin living out of our true identity as higher immortal beings.
We learn the knowledge and creative processes necessary for creating ourselves and how we experience ourselves through our own self-made reality. It’s ultimately a form of self-development and growth that intentionally evolves us to higher states of being.
Spiritual development can be equated to higher forms of moral development where you begin creating yourself in a fully self-aware manner. It comes through the transformation of existing patterns into new patterns that are more beneficial and produced through striving and willful effort. It works to transform the mental paradigm being used as the means for defining yourself by how you form your life story, so you can begin actively pursuing your true life purpose.
Spiritual development is a form of personal development that comes by developing a greater level of self-awareness in order to begin creating your life with a true sense of responsibility. It’s the most natural way we act on ourselves to evolve ourselves to higher forms of self-expression that have meaning and reason as its primary focus, and deals more with “morality” cultivated through the practical applications of universal laws rather than as rules and regulations imposed on us by others or religious institutions, which only require mindless obedience.
It comes as practices based on the application of universal principles in our daily life as the means of creating ourselves with intention and a heightened sense of awareness. It’s based on bring universal principles into daily practice as a means of creating yourself by way of them and becoming an instrument for higher powers to work in the world as a result. It requires you to master your ability to use your mind based on a practical understanding of the laws involved.

How do I Pick a Mentor?

2 – The teacher you choose should be a master at the “type” of spiritual path and practice you relate to most and are interested in pursuing as your means of self-development to higher forms of consciousness.
3 – They should be credible in their field and the living demonstration of what they teach.
4 – You want to make sure you feel comfortable with their demeanor and style of communicating as well as the type of language they use. Thorough understanding is necessary for practical application of the Principles involved.
