The term spirituality is one that has been floating around a lot recently. If you read self-help books, subscribe to the lifestyle section of YouTube or just simply have a genuine interest in learning about wellness, you have read or heard of this term.
Spirituality can be related to religion just as much as yoga, meditation, and relaxation methods.
In simple words,
“Spirituality is the belief that we [humans] are all connected to and by a force greater than ourselves which works in our favor and is looking out for our greater good.”
This force whether you deem it as God, the Universe etc is tapped into when you make a decision to not only believe in it but trust and allow it to manifest itself in your life.
I believe that it is through an inward process of self-discovery and developing of our intuition that we then grow in tune with the source and are able to love ourselves and love and understand other people.
Some spiritual practices that are beneficial are:
1. Gratitude – We can express it through writing things down for which we are grateful for. Speaking our gratitudes out loud. Meditating on our gratitudes.
2. Affirmations– The practice of speaking the truth over and over until it becomes a reality. ‘I am beautiful’. ‘I am intelligent’. ‘I am strong’.
3. Faith – Speaking the truth and believing it has happened. When you say you are beautiful, you believe it in your core, even if doubt creeps in every so often.
4. Manifestation – Speaking things which have not happened yet into existence. For example, you can say ‘I am grateful for the car that I buy in May…’ It has not happened yet but I am putting it out in the future that it will happen by saying it has happened. This act of speaking ‘as if’ things have already happens clicks something in my brain that then subconsciously motivates me to move towards achieving that thing.
