What is Spirituality?

Spirituality means different things to different people. Some people define their spirituality as their religion, while others believe that their connection to the world and nature offers a better definition.

Regardless of how it is defined, spirituality is something that we all share in common, because we all have a soul. Just as the body requires food to survive, our souls require nourishment to thrive. Although we are spiritual beings by design, we can and should grow in our spiritual awareness.

How to Grow in Spiritual Awareness

To grow in spiritual awareness, first acknowledge that you are a spiritual being.
Then focus your consciousness on things other than the physical world and its material possessions. For instance, you can grow in spiritual awareness by praying to God, meditating, going to church, taking a walk on the beach, or simply following your innermost joy.

Here are a few specific steps you can take right now to grow in spiritual awareness:

  •  Take some time for a quiet moment of reflection.
  • Read a few pages from an inspirational book.
  • Take a deep breath.
  • Do something that makes you happy.

Final Thoughts

The most important thing to remember is that spirituality works from the inside out. It should be personal to you. Think of spirituality as what you do to feed your soul. What is your soul craving today?
