Living a Spiritual life is much more than collecting crystals, reading spiritual books and believing that there is something much greater than ourselves. Living a spiritual life, to me, means establishing a regular spiritual practice that connects you to your own inner truth as well as establishes a connection between you and something much greater.
Living a spiritual life means to put into practice what you know and I hope you will find these tips helpful in establishing a regular practice.
This is huge for a lot of people- we all have a tendency to allow the internal mental “chatter” to create restrictions, confusions, and limitations within our lives. It is super freeing to quiet the mind and just allow ourselves to be. Noticing what comes up for us while in this space creates a pathway to explore how we are truly feeling and dive deeper into our own inner truths.

I also suggest that starting with 5 minutes each morning just focusing on the breath is a great way to start.
Raising our awareness and being mindful with ourselves and with others is critical to living a spiritual life. Being able to separate ourselves from events and finding underlying lessons within each situation instead of just jumping into a space of judgment is something that takes work, but with time becomes second nature and creates more peace and joy in our lives.
Having the awareness to find synchronicities and meaning in day to day life as well as finding purpose and lessons in each circumstance and situation allows you to understand the bigger picture and see it as an opportunity for self-growth and realization.
Finding awareness helps us wth understanding that we are all connected and it also helps with the next point which is…
We all have intuition- whether we listen to it or not is a completely different story. I will be posting more about how to develop your own intuition soon, so check back frequently.
The Bottom Line
For me, being spiritual means putting the above into practice- it is one thing to know it, another to talk about it but the true validity to being spiritual for me is putting the principals into action.
