The beautiful thing about Spirit is that we don’t need to wait for special occasions to access our connection,” explains Agapi Stassinopoulos, a world-renowned spiritual teacher, in her upcoming Speaking With Spirit Quest on Mindvalley.

Why? Simply because we, as the human race, are so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. We’re so focused on our agendas, and, as Agapi points out, “we so often forget what makes us feel joyful and alive and focus more on achieving.”

That leaves many of us feeling lonely, lost, and listless. And we end up looking here, there, everywhere for something more profound—a connection that roots us to our core being.

In her sit-down on The Mindvalley Show with Vishen, the founder of the transformational platform, Agapi touches on these points as well as how to connect with yourself spiritually and never feel alone.

Agapi Stassinopoulos, the Spiritual One

Have you ever heard a name and thought, “That sounds like it holds a story?” Agapi’s name does more than just that. 

Translated to “love” in Greek, it feels like she was destined for the spiritual journey long before she even embarked on it. But let’s not get swayed by just a name, no matter how poetic it might be. What truly resonates is her life’s work, the legacy she’s creating.

While Greece, her homeland, often echoes in the alleys of history and myth, it’s also the cradle of spiritual and philosophical wonders. And it seems Agapi soaked it all in, transforming those ancient whispers into lessons for the modern soul.

But don’t be fooled by her playful and effervescent nature; beneath that lies a deep well of spiritual wisdom and expertise.

Dive deep into her books, Speaking With Spirit and Wake Up to the Joy of You, and you won’t find regurgitated age-old mantras. Instead, you’ll find fresh, present-day interpretations that strike a chord in the here and now.

Now, you might be thinking, “Stassinopoulos? Isn’t that…?” Yes, she’s Arianna Huffington’s sister. But their bond isn’t just familial; it’s a shared mission. 

Together, they’re painting a bigger picture. Arianna’s company, Thrive Global, pulses with Agapi’s energy, enriched by her meditations and workshops.

And to say Agapi teaches would be an understatement. She immerses you, gently nudging you to find higher consciousness in the mundane.

In an era where everyone’s speaking but few are truly saying something, Agapi’s voice rises above, not louder but clearer. And it guides those willing to listen.

Being One With the Force

Clinging to our smartphones. Chasing deadlines. Drowning in the ding! ding! ding! of notifications.

This is the reality of modern life. And while it’s made our day-to-day efficient, the quiet moments are too few and far between.

Yet, it’s within those quiet moments, when the world stills just a smidge, that spiritual awakening signs appear. The pull, the tug, the yearning towards something beyond the tangible—a realm where logic and reasoning bow to intuition and faith.

Our spirit wants us to awaken,” says Agapi. “That’s when we go, ‘My God, I’ve got to find it!’ And then when you go inside and you go, ‘I’ve got it.’”

This sentiment, though seemingly paradoxical, finds its roots in science. A study published in Social Neuroscience revealed that spiritual experiences activate the brain’s reward circuits, the same regions sparked by love, music, and even chocolate. 

Our brains, it seems, are wired to seek and resonate with deeper connections.

How to become more spiritually connected

It’s tempting to say, “That’s great, but how does one even start?” 

In our ceaselessly buzzing world, self-introspection, even briefly, requires valor. But here’s the silver lining, as highlighted by Agapi: you don’t need to perch on a mountaintop or delve into decade-long practices. 

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Pour out your emotions with someone you trust in a safe space, 
  2. Come into the present, and 
  3. Let your spirit guide you to the solution.
Let your spirit guide you through this challenge; let your spirit tell you whatever it is what you need to do. — @AgapiSays Click To Tweet

It’s like in Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens, when Maz Kanata tells Rey about the force. “Close your eyes. Feel it. The light… It’s always been there. It will guide you.”

But the narrative of life isn’t solely about the individual. It’s interwoven with countless others. 

Each moment of connection, every shared experience, could be a nudge from the universe. It’s a reminder that beneath our daily lives, there’s a spiritual bond uniting us all. 

And our true journey? Tuning into these signals and feeling that deeper connection.

6 Guided Meditations to Connect With Yourself Spiritually by Agapi Stassinopoulos

Our inner guidance is like a wireless network,” Agapi explains in her Mindvalley Quest. “To tap into your inner knowing, you just need to enter the password.”

And that password? A moment of mindfulness—a prayer, a deep breath, and even a meditation.

Through meditation, you have the power to elevate your spiritual intelligence, attuning more intimately to the Universe’s whispers. It’s something like dialing into a special frequency where profound insights await. 

By embracing these moments of stillness, you nurture a deeper connection and gain a richer understanding of your surroundings. Here are some guided meditations by Agapi, each designed to strengthen this bond.

It’s a journey to rediscover a profound connectedness, both internally and with the world’s vast expanse. By releasing those tendrils of disconnection, embrace a life rich in love, belonging, and harmonious connection.

2. Increase Self-Love & Acceptance

Here’s the beauty of life (if you choose to see it as such): the challenge of it doesn’t often lie in confronting your external chaos. Rather, it’s in facing your inner tumult.

This particular meditation guides you on a quest for self-acceptance. It serves to remind you that what you resist often lingers. 

As you journey within, envision thoughts drifting by like leaves upon a serene river, letting tranquility and acceptance bloom in their wake. It’s an invitation to release, relax, and warmly embrace every facet of oneself.

3. Overcoming Fear & Anxiety

Fear can be a nuisance. But like Rey in Star Wars, letting go of those anxieties can help you be at one with the Force.

So just as Rey had mentors in her journey, this meditation serves as your guide. It offers tools to find your inner calm, understand fear better, and step confidently into a world lit with empowerment and tranquility.
