How to Become More Spiritual
How to Become More Spiritual
are several ways to help you become more spiritual to be younger for longer:
your life: clear away the physical clutters in your living environment as the
first step to free yourself from material and mundane clutters.
Focus on your soul or more spiritual things, such as compassion
Get to know more about yourself, especially your needs and values.
Remember, needs and wants are not the same.
Learn to look within yourself for answers to your life problems:
you will become more self-reliant and self-sufficient.
Find your inner voice: what you love to do, and what
touches your heart and your soul. Your
inner self knows the truth when you hear it. Nobody knows you better
than yourself, and there is no better physician than yourself, who know what is
best for your body. This intuitive wisdom is self-healing, which makes you
healthier and younger for longer.
Nourish your physical body with nutrients to keep it healthy—a
prerequisite for spiritual health.
Live according to your own highest ideals, which form the platform
for being younger in heart for longer.
Consciously improve your everyday attitudes and feelings, not just
about yourself, but also towards others. Every moment in your day-to-day
interactions provides an opportunity for you to become more spiritual, if you
will consciously avail yourself of that opportunity. Using Mother Teresa’s
example, begin by conveying warmth to someone who least expects it, and this
gesture of compassion is spirituality. Your spiritual thinking causes your
personality and daily interactions with others to become an expression of your
soul: your daily actions speak you
mind. A healthy mind is full of spirituality.
Feed your mind with positive thoughts to avoid distorted thinking
that may lead to depression and other mental disorders. Avoid negative
self-talk, a destructive habit that may talk you out of actions you deem too
scary or uncomfortable for you. Use positive affirmations, and reinforce them
with mental visualization, which enables you to focus all your mental energies
on only positive images, thereby eliminating negative thoughts.
Replenish your soul with spiritual feelings, such as unconditional
love, generosity, gratitude, and forgiveness, among others. Love melts your
resistance to change for the better; without love, you simply continue to
perpetuate that which you resist. Gratitude will not make you compare your
current state (health and wealth) with that of others; gratitude is a great
attitude in healthy spiritual living. Forgiveness is a necessary requirement
for health and healing; forgive yourself as well as others for—mistakes are
necessary for the learning process in life.
Always look outside of
yourself. Learn to pray. There is one
prerequisite: you must ask. Ask and
you shall receive! Whatever blessings,
be they small or great, that come your way, come from above. Prayer works by
altering your brain chemistry. Like anti-depressant drugs, prayer can help you
build up the feeling-good brain chemicals, such as serotonin. Prayer restores
your hope, strength, and health: it makes you younger for longer.
your body, mind and emotions is in itself part of your spiritual evolution.
Live in total harmony with the biological, emotional, mental and spiritual laws
that govern your health and well-being. There are certain laws of Nature that
cannot be broken without dire consequences for your physical, mental, and
spiritual wellness—which can make you younger for longer.
younger for longer, always enhance your spiritual growth.
