Spirituality is something that is distinctively different for each individual. Some people will connect their spirituality to their belief and faith in a higher power, while others would say it’s their connection to the universe. Having a clear mind is essential to your spiritual wellness. Spirituality can encompass the entirety of your health and well-being.
Clearing one’s mind can be done in a number of ways, such as: prayer, mediation, exercise or writing. Whatever medium one may choose, it is important to be locked in and centered on that medium, which can be difficult in today’s world of mobile device notifications and social media alerts. Tuning out the busy world can help increase your inner peace of mind, give you the chance to shed the day away, give new light to an old problem and allow you to become one with yourself.
Mediation is a chance to relieve the negative thoughts of the day, increase self-awareness and be present in the moment. Placing yourself in a quiet setting, in a relaxed position, while controlling your breathing and focusing your attention on something positive, can help to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul from daily stressors.
During meditation, envisioning something positive can set the tone for the rest of your day. Some people repeat mantras or positive affirmations, while others find it beneficial to just be quiet. There is no specific way to do this, but the goal is to remove yourself from anything and everything that can become a distraction to you.
Tuning out the world around you may seem difficult at first, as we live in a time where the world is literally in the palm of our hand. However, changing a few things in your daily routine can help improve your serenity. In that space of time where you opt to be alone, be it 30 minutes or an hour, put your mobile devices in another room. This moment is for you and you alone. Sometimes outside distractions can become poisonous to your personal growth, so it may be best to even remove them from your life all together.
We feed our bodies with more than what’s on our plate. The intake of energy we allow in our lives can control how we expend it. The Law of Attraction teaches us that we attract what we are. This is why it is important to be remember, that as you take the time to mediate and reflect, you are becoming a better person for not only yourself, but for those you will ultimately share a common space with on this great planet we call home; become the person you want to have around you.
Giving yourself time away from the distractions of the world will help you become in sync with who you are in life and what you want out of it. Doing this will give you a better purpose and sense of your existence, which you will manifest. Becoming one with yourself will strengthen your spiritual wellness and overall happiness.
