What does spiritual self-authority mean? Self-authority is one of the jewels in the crown of YOU. Because self-authority is how you know what matters to you, what is true for you.
Self-authority means your own heart and mind, your gut feelings and the rest of your emotional reactions as well.
Also included in self-authority are what physical sensations int the body tell you, plus common sense and worldly wisdom.
Many a new client has come to me with the popular New Age idea or religious ideal that, supposedly, there is an authentic self, a true self, a more Christ-like version of self, etc. And, supposedly, this must be consulted at all times.
