S2 Ep: 02 | Spiritual Bypassing

In this episode of Self / Aware we talked about the idea of Spiritual Bypassing which was modeled from a Buddhist in the ‘80s. The idea of Spiritual Bypassing is when you begin to use the model that “if I just stay positive, everything will work out”. A spiritual bypass or spiritual bypassing is a tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks. We have to come to terms that taking bubble baths, pointing fingers, or just focusing on the positive is not addressing self trauma or shadow, which is so important when it comes to self growth.
