I was asked recently: “How long does the purging period take for one’s pre-spiritual life (ridding of toxic friends, unhealthy lifestyle habits, behaviors that no longer resonate with you?”
I can’t really say how long this might take as it is unique to each individual and all situations. It may seem like there is a before and after to our becoming spiritual, but in reality, all life is spiritual and there is no before and after time. For myself, once I get the clear message that change needs to happen in my life, I try and make the changes as quickly and as gracefully as I can, for all the involved parties. My energy always wants to move quickly into what is next for me.
The purging processes is an ongoing process which lasts for the whole of our life. There will always be people who enter our lives, who we will eventually need to let go of for various reasons. We need to keep growing after we received the lesson or fulfilled the karma for why that person was in our life. Along the way, we will always be making lifestyle changes, which supports new growth. After learning to make better choices and to be more discerning as to who and what we let into our lives, the purging can become more refined.
Purging is a sacred, necessary process for us to fully move into the next vibration waiting for us. If we can bless the beings and things and the parts of our self we are letting go of and be kind about it, it is best. We must be responsible for our choices. Purging with consciousness helps us to be more mindful of being a student of the Earth School and to realize every part of existence is designed for our growth and the growth of others. The more we let into our life, the more we will be held responsible for the caring and the letting go of when we or they need to move on. Purging is a lesson in living in balance as well as a lesson in non-attachment and taking responsibility for all of our actions at all levels.
