Spiritual direction is needed in such cases, as you are entering the spiritual realm. Without direction, we can fall prey to the leading of a passing spirit. This is why the Apostle John, in his first letter, advises us to test the spirits (1 John 4). The Holy Spirit, through Whom all good is accomplished, gives us gifts. Those gifts are intended to produce His fruits in each of us. See Galatians 5:22-23. As well, the catechism teaches on the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit:
1831 The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. They belong in their fullness to Christ, Son of David. They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them. They make the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspirations.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God . . . If children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ.
1832 The fruits of the Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them: “charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity.”
Any spiritual journey that you make is intended to produce these fruits in your soul. I would encourage you to seek spiritual direction through your parish or your diocese.
May Christ’s peace be with you.
