The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path

Michael Mirdad

Cover of The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path

All human beings experience seven major initiations on their journeys toward wholeness. We are always going through these initiations, whether we are conscious of it or not. However, becoming conscious of these tests offers a quantum leap forward on our evolutionary journey.

We all have an indwelling spirit. This means that no matter what paths we've walked, or roads we've chosen, because our spirit was present, they were all spiritual paths. There are no exceptions!

      Discover how everyone must walk, live, and balance the two paths toward wholeness—the spiritual path and the healing path.
      Learn how all roads lead Home and how every path we have walked has been part of your spiritual journey—no matter what it looked like.
      Learn how ancient civlizations used conscious intent to walk through the seven initiations into higher levels of awareness.
      Discover the secret map to enlightenment that has always been used by initiates throughout history.
      Discover the difference between learning life's lessons the easy way versus the hard way.
