Spiritual wellness is the ongoing process of discovering and cultivating your spiritual inner self.
Spirituality, spiritual wellness and faith can be defined as a belief in something and can take on many different and unique meanings and forms for each individual.
Many factors such as religious faith, values, ethics, principles, morals, attitude and gratitude play a part in defining spirituality.
Spiritual wellness can grow into or strengthen a religious believe or have nothing at all to do with religion. Some people have a religious faith belief system, while others have little or none.
Everyone is different and we're not here to judge others. I strongly believe however, that everyone can benefit from having some type of spiritual wellness in their life. Regardless of whether or not you believe in a particular religious faith, there are always things to learn about yourself and world around you.
Spiritual wellness is a wonderful process that can help you find meaning and purpose in your life. It may involve meditation, prayer, affirmations, or specific spiritual practices that support your belief system.
Spiritual wellness is really more about our intensions and how we view and treat ourselves. It's also about how we view and treat everything and everyone else around us.
Spiritual wellness is when our thoughts, emotions and actions are aligned with love, peace, compassion, joy, knowledge, freedom, appreciation, gratitude, forgiveness, passion, happiness, positive beliefs, optimism and hope. Spiritual wellness is when we know that we're a part of, and able to view and absorb nature, the world and the universe. Spiritual wellness together with a strong positive attitude can bring about positive changes in our lives and in all that surrounds us.
Your spiritual wellness must be nourished and exercised regularly. Your spiritual growth relies on a process that can only occur when you create opportunities to engage in meaningful reflection of your inner core self.
