What is My Spiritual Index Level
Author: Greg Tharpe
On a scale of 1- 12, what is your academic level of achievement? Now, what would you guess is your spiritual level of achievement or spiritual index?
We are all aware of the academic system and how it is structured with tests and grades to determine one’s progression and intellectual level of achievements. The level you achieve determines your degree of academic success. Often this is relative to determining the job that you qualify for and the amount of money you will be paid for your knowledge. However, this has nothing to do with your minds perception of your spiritual index level.
From a holistic perspective, there are two sides to education. There is the academic or intellectual side of learning associated with the brain and there is the less popular and non mainstream spiritual side of learning associate with the mind. Even though the world does not acknowledge it, spiritual education or your spiritual index is the most valuable knowledge in the world. This is the reason that Jesus said:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” [Matthew 6:33]
On the spiritual side, there are also levels or grades that determine your spiritual index or understanding of spirit and truth. Just like on the intellectual side there are levels of progression. Another way of wording this is that there are levels of consciousness and awareness or faith. The more you remove the blockages or programming and conditioning of the world, the higher you advance in your spiritual index or levels of spiritual awareness or faith.
Believe it or not, the level that you are at determines whether your life is full, mediocre or lacking peace, joy, happiness and holistic success. When your spiritual index is at a lower level, you experience emotions like worry, fear, lack, limitations and life challenges. People who are not thriving at all are at the lowest levels.
At lower levels or grades (1st – 6th, our elementary spiritual index level), we block most of the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit; therefore, pain, stress, limitation, fear, anger, blame and doubt occupy our lives. But, as we progress to higher levels (7th – 12th), love, joy, peace and abundance are gradually more easily attainable. The pain, stress and struggle no longer challenge you and you live the life you truly desire, with grace and ease.
The good thing about life and where you are on your spiritual index level is if you don’t like it, you can change it. You can always increase your faith or energy vibrations. This will put you in a different mindset or place where the worry, fear and lack of happiness minimize and eventually ceases to exist. The further you grow to higher levels, the less you experience the challenges of the lower vibration levels.
If you want to experience more joy, better health, harmonious relationships and prosperity, the key is to raise or increase your spiritual index, energy vibrations or faith level of awareness.
Therefore, be honest with yourself and ask, “What is my Spiritual Index Level,” at this very moment?
