Whether you recently went through a drastic life-changing event that is making you re-think your beliefs, or you simply want to expand on your spirituality in general, being on a spiritual journey is a very rewarding journey to be on. However, it can feel a little overwhelming in the beginning because there is so much to learn and understand. Here are some tips to help this transition go a little smoother.
Start One New Spiritual Practice at a Time
It can tempting to start multiple practices at once, especially when you get excited about learning more and tapping into your spiritual side. But this sometimes gets overwhelming and keeps you from properly focusing your mind on any one thing. The best thing you can do is pick one or two practices at a time, do them for a while until you feel much more connected to them, then move on to the next one.
Take Time to Be Alone and Reflect
On your spiritual journey, it can be beneficial to have a little more alone time. If you live in a house full of people, it might be a little more difficult for you, so try to find time where you can be alone in your thoughts. Spirituality grows when you have the time and peace to reflect and find clarity. From meditation to being more mindful and tapping into your intuition, it is very hard to do when surrounded by noise and chaos.
So, if you are someone who is alone a lot, no need to worry! It is actually a good thing in this case. It doesn’t mean you need to be isolated, but you can take advantage during this time in your life and really work on growing your spirituality.
Don’t Feel Pressured to do it the “Right” Way
Spirituality is unique to you and you alone. You don’t have to do it any specific way or participate in activities you don’t enjoy. If you don’t feel connected to crystals, don’t use them. If divination like tarot makes you uncomfortable, don’t use them! You can make this your spiritual journey and it never has to look like anybody else’s. While it is good to experiment and see what resonates with you, there is no right or wrong way to be a spiritual person.
Balance Your Mind, Heart, Soul, and Spirit
When it comes to your spiritual journey, focus on balancing out every part of your being. This includes not just your soul and spirit, but your mind and body as well. There are spiritual practices that are unique to each chakra and each part of yourself.
Journaling and meditation is great for your mind and spirit, while using healing stones and herbs can be for just about everything. Some activities like cleansing spaces is more about your soul and spirit, while kundalini yoga is good for your body and mind. Look for practices that cover different part of your spiritual growth, not just one or the other.
