The Bible says that God is a spirit. In fact, I have often heard people say that we are all spiritual beings having a human or physical experience. If we don’t nurture our spiritual being, then we aren’t living through all the dimensions of who we are. Neglecting our inner or spiritual nature can often lead to feelings of emptiness and unfulfillment. The Bibles tells us to walk in the spirit and we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Living only to fulfill our physical needs does not lead to a whole and balanced life. You can grow spiritually and cultivate your spiritual awareness with these simple steps.
The first and the most important step would be to develop a habit of meditating. Meditation is a powerful tool for introspection of the soul or spirit. It is a great way to clean your thoughts and feelings of all the impurities. Meditation is not that difficult to learn, but you must practice it on a regular basis for it to be effective. You can find guided meditations, Christian meditations, and find many tutorials on the internet on how to meditate. Don’t get hung up on the negative connotations often associated with meditation. You can find meditation practices that are safe and will not conflict with your beliefs of faith.
Spend Time in Nature
Spend some time daily or at least weekly in nature. Most people feel safe and secure when they are close to their mother. Similarly when you are close to Mother Nature a similar comfort overtakes you. A simple walk in the park or garden can bring you close to it and smell of the flowers is surely going to relieve all your day’s stress.
Fill Your Home with Positive Energy
Your home should have an ambiance that creates positive energy around you. Such an ambiance can be created in both natural and artificial ways. You can have flowers that you think will create a positive atmosphere or you can make use of artificial scents also. In addition, clear away clutter and keep your home clean. You will feel the positive effects immediately and will thus relax your mind, body and soul. Play uplifting music that bring joy to your heart and inspires good feelings. Surrounding yourself by things you love, helps to nurture your inner being and brings out your creativity.
Live By the Spirit
Jesus let his disciples know that once he ascended to heaven that he would send the Holy Spirit that would live in us and guide us in all truth. Reading spiritual or enlightening books like the Bible will also enhance the spiritual person living inside of you. By focusing more on the spiritual aspects of life, when train our minds and hearts to live a more spiritual life. It is important that we learn to “be still” so that we can hear the still, small voice of the spirit that speaks to us. When we are prompted or feel an urge to do or more in a particular direction, trust God’s spirit in you and follow your heart.
