Spiritual has a different meaning for each person; however, for many, spirituality is equated to their religious beliefs. The spiritual pillar is the most important of the four pillars used to build the foundation for achieving your goal of living your optimal life. A life where you can experience peace and contentment daily despite the trials and tribulations.
there must be something that keeps you going when all the evidence is screaming “give UP!”
For many it’s their faith and for me, it’s my belief in God.
Despite the evidence and what you may be feeling, God never gives you more than you can bear; and He does indeed, turn what was meant for your harm into good if you are patient enough to wait on His timing.
getting the most from your practice
Practicing your spiritual routine(s) daily will help you stay grounded and allow you to regain your focus when things become stressful or chaotic. Taking a moment to pray when you need clarity may not seem possible when you are strapped for time; however, a simple “God, please help me” is enough to bring calm to your mind and soul. A mindful pause may also be helpful for many.
staying spiritually healthy
There is no reason why you cannot employ several activities. A combination of prayer, reading the Bible, meditation, yoga, and going to church gives you a well-rounded practice. Other ways you can enhance your spiritual health is by listening to music, dancing, and walking in nature.
Sometimes, you have to use what is immediately available and simple meditations and/or positive affirmations can come in very handy when you do not have a lot of time or privacy.
the quality of your spiritual foundation is key
Having a spiritual foundation does not mean that all will be smooth sailing; quite the contrary. However, it is the strength of your spiritual foundation that gets you through the trials and tribulations that are a part of life.
