Does being “spiritual” matter in daily life? Does it make any impact on whether you are happy and successful? Yes, it does! Research shows over and over that if you cultivate a warm, loving connection with the Divine and with a community of like-minded people, it makes a HUGE difference in the quality of your life.
One primary difference is in your mindset and emotional state. Feeling connected to something “bigger” than you gives your life a sense of meaning. You don’t feel so alone or isolated anymore. It also gives you hope if you believe things happen for a reason. When things don’t go your way, you are able to let go of the disappointment much faster when you accept that Someone is in control and working out an unseen plan.
I often encourage my clients to connect with the Spirit of Truth. I have learned from personal experience how powerful this is! The Spirit of Truth reveals Reality to you – you see things clearly in your life and in your relationships. This allows you to make better, wiser decisions. It reduces your confusion, discouragement and gives you a sense of direction and purpose. I love the Spirit of Truth! [Exercises for connecting with the Spirit of Truth are in my books.]
I also make sure I am connected with my spirit daily. I practice “breathing with God”. It helps me to stay grounded. I posted this earlier this year. Here’s the link – it’s a great practice for the month of November when we are focused on being grateful. Do you know that if you practice being grateful for 21 days it changes the way your brain is wired? It helps you to become a more positive person. Try it out!
Being spiritual and cultivating a close connection with the Divine DOES matter.People who do it are happier and have a sense of purpose. Some of my clients have asked me to help them cultivate their spirituality – I love to do this! It’s one of my favorite things – so please, don’t hesitate to ask me about it. I have been a spiritual seeker since I was very young so I have many years of experience. I love to help people discover the spiritual connection that will enable them to be happy and fulfilled.
I can’t imagine life without spirituality, can you? It’s like the difference between watching an old black and white movie versus a movie in color on HDTV. You owe it to yourself to try it out – you won’t believe the BIG difference it makes. [By the way, don’t confuse religion with spirituality. Some people have tried “church” or other religious rituals and have come away feeling empty and disappointed. If that’s your only experience of “spirituality”, then let me encourage you – there’s something much more than that! Contact me and I’ll explain – 305-781-6229 or firstname.lastname@example.org]
