Who is a spiritual advisor?
A spiritual advisor is someone who is really connected to religion. This does not mean that they are someone like a priest or a nun. They are there to guide you in your spiritual journey (as they call it) and they are very much connected to god. And tend to know a lot about god and to connect you with god.
A spiritual leader does not have to be a registered person. To help you with your spiritual guide. There are professional spiritual advisors. Yet if the cause is to get help on your spiritual journey, even a friend or mentor can do it. You may find a professional spiritual leader in the daily church you go to. Or in the religious club, you go to. It is important you choose someone properly as. Your mindset can be affected by the comments or speech they give as well.
You might have certain worries or depression as such. You might not want to go to a psychologist then your option could be a spiritual advisor. They can help you in bringing your mind state to a stable condition. Although you should know that if you feel like there is a serious psychological issue. You should consult a professional psychologist and not a spiritual advisor.
A spiritual advisor is not a professional psychologist or psychiatrist. And therefore will not help you in psychological illnesses. They might sometimes convince you they could cure your illness, but you should be sensible enough to know your health over your mental state.
You can always find a spiritual leader in a church or any religious groups you are in, or your friends are in. It is very important that you should find a spiritual leader who understands god and as connected as you are.
What do spiritual advisors do?
A spiritual guide can guide you, in many things such as anxiety problems. If you are experiencing any issues such as anxiety, a spiritual leader will talk you through the problem. A spiritual leader will help you connect with God. Suggest some prayer activities and will make you a little relieved about your situation. This might help for some people and might not help for some.
It all depends on how well you are connected to god as much as your spiritual leader is connected to god. Making one thing clear, if you have severe anxiety problems, and if you are not that connected to god, you better consult a doctor instead of making your situation worse.
A spiritual advisor can also help you in relationships. If you are suffering from a recent breakup and cannot concentrate on your day to day work better consult one of them.
A spiritual guide will help you divert your mind from your breakup and concentrate on prayers. A spiritual advisor will talk to you about God and always suggest prayer activities that will help you understand that there is more to life than the pain you are going through.
A spiritual guide also can just simply guide you in your spiritual direction to god. They will guide in your prayers, how often to pray how much you should concentrate on what you do. They will talk to you about god, what are things you should avoid, and should do when you are praying. A spiritual advisor will guide you in how your daily life should be and how well you can maintain your mindset by doing prayers.
Difference between a psychic and a spiritual advisor
People often tend to confuse a spiritual leader and a psychic. A psychic is a person, again not a professional in any way. A psychic is a person who will use “extrasensory perception” and they will tell how your future would change and why it would change. They sometimes even claim to know when your death date will be and how you will die. They claim to know this because they have extra visionary powers, and thus believe to know things about your life.
A psychic in any way does not talk about god. But rather would ask you questions and do their “predictions”. Based on your answers to the tricky questions they ask. It was believed that even more than spiritual guides the psychics were much more important to the royal families in the early days. As they believed the psychics could predict the future, whereas a spiritual guide does not predict the future but does simply guide you about your future.
