My Story

Jennifer GraingerHi, I am Jennifer T. Grainger, B.Msc.

  • I teach, mentor, and coach seekers on their path of spiritual development.
  • I am a guide and a resource, not a missionary.
  • I have no dogma or doctrine, only a vast knowledge of the spiritual growth process gained through my own journey into awakening.
  • I have been on the path of spiritual awakening since 1989.

My journey into awakening . . .

was pretty turbulent (as in tsunami from hell!) OK, I may be exaggerating just a little. But really sometimes it did feel like hell. In the beginning of my journey (ohmigosh, that was almost 20 years ago) I didn’t know I was co-creating the circumstances of my life for my highest good. Because I didn’t know that, I was always looking for ways to get away from the experience instead of focusing on the nuggets of wisdom so readily available. Fortunately, I eventually became conscious enough to see the truth. Life has been much better ever since!

My passion is . . .

sharing my journey with others on the spiritual path so they won’t be as alone as I was. Oh how I had wished for a community of like-hearted people to share with during those times when I thought for sure I was going crazy! I got through those times by assuring myself that crazy people don’t think they are crazy. That meant that if I was worried that I was going crazy, the fact that I thought I might be going crazy was a sure sign that I was not! (There may have been a few of my family and friends who would have begged to differ!)

It was hard . . .

Nobody I knew had any interest in spiritual growth. There were no local classes or workshops. My spiritual teacher had moved across the country. Although I was fascinated by her, I found her to be so “far out” that most of the time I didn’t know what to believe.

Fourteen years passed . . .

from the time I started my spiritual quest before I finally “got it” that my outer life is a reflection of the state of my consciousness. And that spiritual growth means to be continually expanding my consciousness in order to know who I am beyond my ego. And that spiritual growth means developing enough awareness to know what I am thinking, what my intentions and motivations are. And to know (not just believe) that every single thing that happens in my life is for my highest good. And that I am a co-creator of every situation I find myself in.

In other words, my spiritual growth was about transcending victim mentality and taking responsibility for my life, while developing a strong, dependable connection to the Source of my well-being . . . The All-That-Is, the Universe, Divine Intelligence, God . . . whatever you want to call it.

My daily spiritual practice . . .

begins each day with making conscious connection with my Source, imagining my day and asking for guidance. After the usual exercise routine, shower, teeth brushing, breakfast, etc. I spend a few moments in my meditation chair asking for guidance on what to do next.

All through the day, as I complete a task, I return to “the chair” and ask “what next?” I am not thinking about what I “should” do, although I am very aware of schedules and deadlines. I just include them in my awareness when I am asking “what next?”

Whenever I find myself struggling to figure something out, I stop, go to my chair, ask “what needs to happen here?” The answer comes . . . no struggle. Yeah!

So that’s my story . . .
