What is a spirit worker?

William B. Salt II., MD
Gastroenterology
"Spirit" workers include pastors, priests, ministers, rabbis, chaplains, gurus and mentors who can help you improve the level of your spiritual health. "Spirit" workers help you to find a greater sense of purpose and meaning in life. They help you to identify your unique and special gifts and guide you in using those gifts in a productive and meaningful way.

"Spirit" workers practice at the level of transcendence, which means the ability to rise above or go beyond the limits of physical or material existence. Transcendence is about making the invisible qualities of spirit or soul visible in your daily life. Transcendence helps you to find a greater sense of appreciation for the mystery of life, the wonder and awe of simple things. Abraham Joshua Heschel, religious philosopher and scholar, says that a sense of awe allows you to "feel in the rush of the passing, the stillness of the eternal . . . to sense in small things, the beginning of infinite significance."
