Spiritual stagnation is a term that you may see pop up now and then on my blog. It is a term that gives you an excellent way of understanding how truth, action, and change interact. What is spiritual stagnation? It is a vital aspect of understanding vitality and wellbeing.
Spiritual stagnation occurs when you resist life, no longer grow spiritually or restrict what is possible for you, which results in forced change, which is often quick and painful.
In tarot, spiritual stagnation would be represented by the tower card. The tower card depicts a sudden and forced change. Change where your only option is to go along with it to reduce pain caused by such a catastrophic change. Resisting the change is no longer possible.
The change that comes from spiritual stagnation is necessary. It seeks to bring you back into spiritual alignment and present lessons that have not been learnt. This is ultimately what your life purpose is, to learn, grow and develop from all your experiences. It is through these experiences and growth that you may be able to bring healing and vitality to your life.
These are only a few signs that spiritual stagnation may be occurring.
Spiritual stagnation can affect anyone from masters and spiritual leaders to the person in the street. You may avoid spiritual stagnation if you learn, grow and discover from all your experiences. There is only ever a journey and no destination, which means that you will always learn and grow (overcoming stagnation (is the grass greener?)). If you ever reach a point where you think you know all there is on your spiritual journey, then take a step back and reconsider this view.

Use it as a vehicle for self-development and increased personal power, vitality and well-being. Spiritual stagnation can be a real spiritual blessing if you choose to work with it.
