YouTube has become a valuable resource for those of us on the path of spiritual awakening. It's given a platform to this generation's brand of spiritual teacher—the spiritual influencer.
Influencers help to bring a fresh, new and relatable spin to the topic of spirituality.
Gone are the days of conscious seekers revering spiritual teachers who seem to have attained a level of mastery that none of us mere mortals could ever hope to achieve.
Instead, real people who have gone through their spiritual awakening and managed to come out the other side intact are sharing what they've learned along the way to help others like them to do the same.
So if you've found yourself on a spiritual path, check out the following YouTubers who can help to guide you through all of the many phases of your journey (in no particular order):

Follow For: Energy updates, intuitive guidance & how-to videos on a variety of spiritual topics.
Ralph Smart is a psychologist, author, and (of course) YouTuber who runs a channel called Infinite Waters. His video opener and tag line "...we're out here, in nature, breathing in that good ass prana, baby!" has become synonymous with his brand, along with other fun catch phrases like "the cat down the road" and "can I get a hello[ooo] there?".
Ralph's videos are often set outside in nature, where he seems to riff topics based on his mood or the energy of the day. His unrushed, almost hypnotic way of speaking captivates viewers and draws them into his message. The British accent doesn't hurt, either!
