The Four Principles of Spirituality

By Surabhi Kalsi

There are four principles of spirituality that apply to everyone. The way we choose to reflect upon them or understand them in our day to day life can help us find the “higher” perspective and wisdom hidden behind our experiences and challenges. Here is my interpretation of these principles and the way we can apply them in our lives. They are like triggers that lead to inquiry, awareness and action to bring about positive life change. For each principle I have added an affirmation and how to bring in the power of angels to help us.

The first principle states “Whomsoever you encounter is the right one”


No one comes into our life by chance. Everyone who is around us ( or was a part of our past and all those who are yet to come into our lives) are there for a reason. Everyone has or is contributing something to our lives. There are no coincidences. There are no wrong choices as everyone is a teacher who carry within them the gifts to help us learn our life lessons. So stop looking back or looking around and judging yourself or others for the right or wrong. No choice was wrong. No relationship was wrong. Because the lessons were ‘right’ there. There is no duality.
When faced with a challenging relationship or a person who constantly irks you or triggers you – Ask yourself – what is this person trying to show me? Which aspect of me is reflected back at me? What is the gift (life lesson) in this? Take the gift, learn the lesson, you have the power, don’t give it away.

Affirmation : I choose to see everyone in my life as a divine teacher and for that I am grateful. I look for the gift(s) in any challenge so I may learn my life lesson(s). And so it is.

Work with the Angels : Call upon Archangel Metatron and Archangel Raziel to help you see the underlying lessons. Surround yourself with a pink light bubble and call upon Archangel Chamuel to open your heart and fill it with divine love and compassion for yourself and the other(s).

The Second Principle states: “Whatever happened is the only thing that could have happened”

How many times have you re-imagined a scenario, replaying it in your head – if only I could have done it differently, chosen different words etc. If you could have, you would have. There is no point playing the blame game with yourself or the others. If only… Is a waste of time. Because the only thing that could have happened has happened. Singular and past tense.
Instead if you focus your energies on finding the gift in that situation, you will be able to see what you need to learn from what happened. Look at the root, at the cause. Instead of judging yourself or the other(s) look at what caused the behavior or the situation. Look at the triggers. You will gain a different understanding of it.
Affirmation: I trust the process of life to bring me my highest good. I choose to love myself as I learn from my experiences and give myself the space to grow.

Work with the Angels : Call upon archangel Chamuel and archangel Raphael –
Dear archangel Chamuel, please help me fill my heart and the heart(s) of those involved with love. Archangel Raphael please heal any hurt or imbalances that may have been caused to me or the other(s) because of what happened. And now I surrender it completely to evolve for the highest good of all. Please bring to my awareness what I need to learn from this. Thank you.

“Each moment in which something begins is the right moment” is the third principle of spirituality.

When I look at my life, in retrospect:) everything did happen at the right time! But when I was still on the other side, living through the experiences, I was living on a self imposed timeline. I had my shoulds – by this time, this should happen, this should end and this should begin.

Once we let go of the shoulds and start living our lives from a space of divine timing and flow with life – each moment becomes right. Each moment can have only one meaning – only one experience and we can start living that moment more fully because we are not trapped in “this is how it should be”.

Everything begins when we are ready to receive it. So if you want something in your life, look at the blocks, look at your underlying beliefs and ask yourself – Do I really want this? Or I want it because I ‘should’ want it? I believe that God won’t leave you wanting – it will be provided to you when it’s right and ripe. And when you can appreciate it.

Affirmation: Everything I need comes to me in divine time and perfect sequence. I live every moment fully knowing that this moment is perfect and holds the right experience for me.

Work with Angels – I now call upon archangel Michael to help me let go of all my shoulds! I write down all my shoulds on a piece of paper and tear it – energetically seeing it burn in Archangel Michael’s fire. Thank you Michael!

What is over, is over.” This is the Fourth Principle, the final one.

It’s simple. Anything coming to an end in your life has served its purpose. We tend to hold on to people, stay in relationships that have lost meaning, we choose the familiar because acknowledging that it’s over would mean that we will have to get out of our comfort zone. It would mean taking a step that would be uncomfortable – maybe that’s a step you never thought you would be taking in your life ever – it’s beyond your own expectations, hopes and the way you imagined your life to be.

So many times even when we know it’s over, we are still holding on to it. We are holding on to the past or a future which does not serve us. Take a pause and look at your life – what is over? And am I over it?

Affirmation : As I close one door, a new door opens for me. As I leave behind what does not work for me, I create space for the new and meaningful to enter. I am ready now.

Work with the Angels – I call upon archangel Michael to give me the courage to close doors and move on. I ask archangel Chamuel to surround me in love and help me find my path ahead.

Dear Archangels Michael, Chamuel, Gabriel and Zadkiel

Please help me leave behind the things that are now over. Let me leave behind the pain, any negative emotion that was caused to me and/or other(s) and help me forgive myself and the other(s). I now move on with grace, dignity and great peace knowing that what lies ahead of me is what I need to focus upon and live. Thank you.
