8 Reasons to Become More Spiritual
Do you love your life as it is?
I know many people who don’t. And if you’re looking for that special something to enrich your life, then spirituality may be what you seek. Here are eight reasons to become more spiritual and make the most out of your life.
Now, I for sure know that starting your spiritual journey isn’t a walk in the park. It takes a lot of commitment and consistency to see the results you’re hoping to see.
But I also know that ever since I set out on this path, I’ve grown much more than I’ve ever thought possible. And you can do the same.
Read on to get some much-need inspiration to make the change you know you deserve!
1. You learn that your physical body doesn’t define your worth
We’re bombarded with images of what the ideal body is supposed to look like. And if yours doesn’t, then uh-oh, here comes trouble!
One of the main reasons why I love spirituality is because it taught me my physical body
looks doesn’t define the worth of my soul. They’re two separate things – each beautiful
in its own way.
Here’s a video of mine where I talk about what is a soul and how your soul isn’t the same as your physical body. (it’s actually so much more!)
2. You start living in the present moment
How many times per day does your mind wander back and forth?
If you’re not aware, I challenge you to track your thoughts for a day and see what happens. You’ll be surprised to learn just how much you miss out on the present because you’re either overthinking about the past or worrying about the future.
Spirituality shifts your focus to the present moment. It makes you aware of what’s happening right here and right now. You become more mindful – and you start enjoying all of your activities much more!
3. Your mental health improves
Spirituality is one of the best tools you can use to improve your mental health.
The “secret” here lies in the fact that spirituality helps you to get to know yourself. The more you dig under the surface, the more you find the underlying reasons for whatever you’re going through.
Meditation has helped me ease my anxiety & cure my depression.
This isn’t to say that I never feel anxious or depressed. It’s just to say that now, I’m safe in the reassurance that those feelings will eventually go away and there’s a glimpse of hope on the horizon.
4. Your self-esteem rises
If you’re struggling with your confidence, then I think you’ll benefit a lot from looking into spirituality more.
Your level of self-esteem is a sign of the relationship you have with yourself. The better relationship you have with yourself, the higher your self-esteem will be.
Spirituality improves the quality of that relationship by pointing out the good sides of who you are. And we so often forget about the good sides, don’t we all?
5. You’re calmer & more content
You know how sometimes you’re overwhelmed by FOMO – the fear of missing out?
Social media managed to – somehow! – convince us that there’s this better life somewhere out there. (and never where we are at the moment!)
If I’m thankful for something that spirituality gave me, then that’s the feeling of peace and content in my head & my chest. I no longer feel like I’m missing out on anything because I know I’m not.
6. You make better decisions
Ever since I’ve started practicing spirituality on a deeper level, I’ve become much better at making decisions. The reason? My intuition got sharper!
Meditating daily taught me how to calm my mind. That alone was enough to drown the everyday noise from my head and allow for the voice of my gut feeling to rise to the surface.
7. You enjoy life more
How much do you enjoy your life?
I didn’t enjoy my life enough because I was constantly overthinking about everything!
But once you realize you’re not missing out on anything and the present moment is where your happiness is, you literally become unstoppable.
You no longer wait for anyone or anything to make you happy – and that’s a whole new level of freedom.
Now I’m able to find joy in the little things. Playing with my cat Leo, watching a marvelous sunset or simply sitting in my favorite café sipping coffee… I know that’s enough to make my day ten times as better.
8. You attract positive people & positive experiences
Becoming more spiritual doesn’t mean your life will transform overnight.
However, you will notice that once you change your mindset, you will start attracting more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff. That means – more positive people and more positive experiences!
I’ve also noticed that even if something bad happens, I no longer think of it as the end of the world. I manage to keep my optimism high and guess what? Things always work out for me in the end!
