Today I planned on writing my blog about proper techniques to ground yourself. No worries that one is coming soon. But I got a little sidetracked in my thinking and it must be put out there as I feel this is what I am supposed to write about today. So my apologies to those waiting on the grounding techniques..today just was not the day.
I want to talk about spirituality, and our true spiritual purpose.
The quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
-Oxford Dictionaries, https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/spirituality
Spirituality may refer to almost any kind of meaningful activity, especially a “search for the sacred.” It may also refer to personal growth, blissful experience, or an encounter with one’s own “inner dimension.”
I would like to delve a little deeper into the meaning of spirituality. First I want to make it very clear that spirituality is not associated with just one religion or one set of beliefs. Spirituality is something we should all want to work on no matter what our core belief system is. Like it says above it is about our spirit and our soul. It is about finding a meaning in this life and bringing to ourselves a closeness to all that is. It is about becoming a better person, someone that begins to understand themselves and others as well as the world we live in. Spirituality brings to you patience, love and the ability to be responsible for yourself and your actions. Spirituality can refer to different activities such as going to church, prayer, meditation, yoga, self reflection, and communing out in nature. All of these things can lead to spirituality, it is different for us all. There is no “right way” to practice spirituality because it is a personal experience. Regardless of the “how”, it is a practice we all should make a time every single day to practice. When you include this practice into your everyday schedule you will start to notice changes with in yourself. You will be vibrating on a higher level, meaning you will start radiating more love and happy positive energy. The way you deal with stress, anger, sadness and depressive thoughts will start to change. You will have found your very own technique to alleviate all of those emotional blocks. Now not to say that you will never feel those emotions again but you will be better equipped to deal with them in a healthy manner. Spirituality should be something that keeps you growing, there is no end goal here, you will keep practicing and keep growing. During your spirituality practice you will start to feel at peace and start to feel connected to the universe, creator, and/or all living things.
So take some time and think about what spirituality practices you would like to include into your day to day routine.
Spiritual purpose is all about your purpose here on this earth and what brings you peace, love, passion, excitement and pure bliss. This is what drives your very soul. It can be natural born talents, an inner drive or direction, or maybe just the feeling you have inside that tells you need to be doing this. This comes very easy for some people, while others may spend 30+ years trying to figure it out and striving to reach their purpose. I was one of the latter, even though I have always known my love for stones was my passion and excitement it was not until the more recent years that I fully understood that that love of stones was leading me to my spiritual purpose of helping people with those stones. So while I had a natural born love and obsession of stones I had to learn the ability to identify them and learn how to use them in healing and spirituality. I also want to add that your spiritual purpose does not have to be something that helps others, helps animals or even the planet. Your purpose can be whatever gives you that feeling of bliss, that excitement and happiness. After all if you are fulfilling your spiritual purpose you are raising your personal vibration and if we all raised our own vibration imagine how much better this world would be. So you are indeed still helping the world.
I wanted to talk about these two things today because I feel so strongly about both of these areas. I want to help people reach these areas in their life and be the best they can be. This world is in such dire need of spirituality and love that can be shared between all religions, cultures and races as well as the acceptance of all people that reside on this planet.
