Connecting to your spiritual side

 
 
 
Connecting to your spiritual   side
 
Spirituality  – a connection with yourself, development of   your value system and a search for meaning and purpose in life.
We can feel this at anytime in life. Sometimes it’s mid-life. Other times, its due to major illness or transition that forces us to question   life.
If your can relate to the definition above then you are on the   road to self-discovery which is a spiritual awakening.
To continue your path of self-discover and personal development, here are a few questions to help you on your journey.
 
1. What are your most important relationships? Make sure to nurture your important relationships. Remind people often how much you care   and love them. daily check in’s are great and can help anyone through a rough   time.
 
2. What do you value most in life? Does your life = your value  system? Do an evaluation. Write down your values then see if your actually   living in accordance to your values. If not, time to make some   changes.
 
3. What people give you a sense of community? Do you spend  enough time with them? Socialization and community bring us a boost of   happiness and a sense of belonging.
 
4. What inspires you and brings you joy? Who inspires you and brings you joy? The people who do this are they included in your most   important people? When working on the “What” make sure you include those activities that bring you joy. The more positive emotions we feel such as joy, inspiration, awe, hope, love, etc, the longer we live.
 
5. What are your proudest achievements? Are you reaching your goals? Be proud of what you have done. Be proud of all your mistakes because you learned so much from them and without those learning experiences you wouldn’t be here today.
 
When you answer these questions, it will help you to identify  your most important people and experiences which you can build from and make   changes where needed.
 
My challenge to you is to answer these questions honestly and start making the changes so you can be on the right path.
