In a busy world, it's easy to forget to take the necessary steps to spiritual growth. We're all caught up in the game of life. We need to improve our chances to “make-it” in the real world. We are trying to move ahead, or treading water frantically just to stay afloat.
Sometimes, life seems too full to consider spirituality. Sure, we may go to church, mosque, or temple, but that may not be enough. We may simply be paying lip service. It may be simply a social thing.
Is this enough? Is it fulfilling to our entire being to neglect this particular aspect of our make-up? Even if we don't believe in a supreme deity, should we ignore the mind-body-spirit connection? If we want to become complete entities, if we want to help our physical selves remain strong and healthy, the answer to this last question is “No.”
More and more research is indicating the link between the physical, emotional and intellectual selves to the spiritual entity. Stress disperses, or decreases, when through such things as meditation we reach within ourselves. Energy medicine is one form that recognizes the need for individuals to use the Qi (Chi) to achieve balance using the body-mind-soul connection. Through meditation, people who are ill help decrease the pain and achieve a sensation many would call spiritual.

Off the Edge: Learning & Living Spiritual Practice sums up a very Eastern approach to
spirituality. She writes, “Your life is your spiritual path. It's what's
right in front of you. You can't live anyone else's life. The task is to live
yours and stop trying to copy one you think looks better.”
It all begins by looking deep within. Only if we work from the inside out can we make changes that will last. Yet, just because the steps to spiritual growth start from within, does not mean we should avoid formulating a spiritual growth plan. By examining our lives, looking at what makes us happy, content and responsible and applying that to others in our lives, can we move forward in our spirituality growth patterns.
For a plan to be successful, you need to devote yourself to it. When it comes to the stages of spiritual growth, begin with gradual changes. Be mindful of where you tread and how hard you are walking on this earth. Be more compassionate, be more loving and, above all, be more mindful of all your actions.
Actions do speak louder than words. They speak to who we are and where we're going. If we continue along the path of mindfulness, we'll find we don't have to wonder about spirituality and its existence. We will find ourselves in harmony with our own bodies and the universe.
When we take the first few steps to spiritual growth, we're on the start of a long and fulfilling journey. It's no longer a question of “what is spirituality, and what it means in our lives ?” We're now well on a journey of self-healing. Whether we reach our goal through meditation or prayer is, in the end, irrelevant. It's the journey of self-discovery that matters.

I went to Massimo for a healing session in which I experienced calmness and opening of my heart.
All the sadness I had as a child and images from my childhood went by and were gone. An hour treatment went by like ten minutes. In other times I experienced very deep meditations, quietness, yet very alert and awake. Thanks Massimo for helping me get in touch with the healing force within me.

Dear Massimo, thanks so much for your healing sessions. So many things changed and improved since the beginning of your treatments. You are very gifted and all you are doing arises from the depth of your heart and the depth of the knowledge you channel. I highly recommend you as a healer.

Good luck: with this single word I can express what I feel to have met Massimo.
I have been knowing him for 10 years and working with him I have done a path to awareness.
He is a good teacher, sincere, honest, which guides you to the truth and peace that our heart desires and can achieve.

For me, healing means integrity and the consistency of living my daily life, relationships and job in the way of my true "I".
Massimo has the rare ability to lead people, and therefore me, to
transform obstacles that stand between you and what you want to realize in available energy. He does so with great respect, patience and lack of judgment.
Massimo, thanks for all that I get from you.

When Massimo gave me healing sessions online, I experienced him as a sensitive and dedicated man who has the gift to sense into deeper layers of the soul and affect them in a gentle and non intruding way. His careful way of approaching the pain in my eyes and the feedback he gave me from his sensitive perceptions helped me to gain trust and confidence in my healing process.
