In Search of a Teacher of Spirit: Eleven Conscious Considerations

Executive Summary about Teacher’s by JoAnne Scalise

Teacher's School

The “teacher” and the “student” offer each other great gifts of Spirit, and Lessons beyond what is recognizable in physical manifestation. For the purpose of this offering, I refer to those beings recognized as, or offering structured format or experience, as spiritual teachers. While many are called to be spiritual teachers, a Teacher of Spirit is a powerful Illuminating Force. For some, this teacher-student experience may have been our clearest and closest encounter with our Divinity, with our Source.

Do you resonate with the teacher and/or teachings?

That is, do you find something within you that harmonizes with the teacher’s energy or message?  A Teacher of Spirit’s energy may often be discerned without any form of physical or visual contact.

Are all students—including you—treated with great respect and compassion? A Teacher of Spirit enters every encounter of this type—no matter how brief—with respect for the individual and the commitment each has made.

Do you find the teacher humble?

Are other spiritual teachers and Paths regarded with respect? Needing to “always be right” is a pattern not found in the Teacher of Spirit.

The Teacher of Spirit may be unfamiliar with some Paths, does not resonate with others, and may state this freely. The Teacher of Spirit often offers the observation that the Many lead to the One, and chooses to respectfully refrain from judgment.

Consider if there is a preponderance of talk on money and the teacher’s need, the lack of it, any feelings of energetic “stickiness”. Many student/teacher paths last a lifetime, and often many lifetimes, with the roles experienced by each participant. Other energetic considerations:

Does the teaching or other products or services feel “doled out”, not freely offered and exchanged?  A Teacher of Spirit is clear and without emotional attachment in setting and communicating energy exchanges.

A teacher may prefer to commune with smaller groups within the group. In large gatherings, it may be difficult to engage in discussion with the teacher.  Any encounter with the Teacher of Spirit is positive and affirming.Y

Do you have a sense of the teacher’s integrity?

Do the teacher’s actions hold the truth of the words? For example, if the teachings are of compassion and Light, one would expect these attributes to be manifested in the teacher. This of course recognizes the fact that teachers are also learning the lessons they provide and articulate. A Teacher of Spirit demonstrates integrity through consistent congruence.

Is the teacher truly present with you—is the focus on the student or on the teacher?

Again, every teacher is human, with concerns, physical, emotional, and spiritual, and may be distracted from time to time, and yet—the student and the teaching must take precedence. This ability to be present parallels with and is congruent with the teacher’s humility.

A Teacher of Spirit recognizes that the center of all teaching is the student, and is complete with contributing to this Divine Purpose, recognizing the reward in this great spiritual gift of Service.

Comprehension is individual, and this is not a reflection of ability or inability for teacher or student.  A Teacher of Spirit encourages questions and offers insights. If the teaching must be worked with by the student (and virtually all teaching is), the Teacher offers the recognition that all is received and understood on an energetic level, and may offer approaches to bring this information into physical understanding when appropriate.

A Teacher of Spirit does not consider issues of worthiness, for all are worthy. A Teacher of Spirit holds the energy of inclusive love, respect, honor, and acceptance, without emotional attachment or reward expectation. Loving kindness and compassion are experienced in every encounter. This is the greatest Service of the Teacher of Spirit, to offer the experience of connecting with, and embracing, our Divinity and our Source. The Teacher of Spirit is a Student of Service, and through this Service, Illuminates the Path to the Experience of God.
