According to this author spirituality is that state of balance that must exist between mind, body and soul, if that balance is achieved peace will be achieved.
This author presents an interesting post about energy management and the energy vampires that consciously or unconsciously steal our energy, and gives us some recommendations to identify them and cancel their effects.
For Evelyn spirituality is a state of absolute joy and fulfillment based on love, which presents itself as a natural condition in every human being.
For @jynura spirituality is present in us from the very moment we come to life, from the womb we have the first connection with love which is, in her opinion, the inexhaustible source of spirituality.
In this beautiful post, @yumelys25 tells us that her spirituality can be experienced through her Faith, seeking God within her being every day through prayer and communion with herself.
For @regenerette it's time to unite with people who are vibrating at a high frequency level, to move forward in creating the new social systems we need as humanity, and to beware of spiritual predators.
Every encounter with human beings, animals, trees, mountains, lakes, even abstract situations and concepts, enriches our own existence. It co-creates who we are and helps us to continue creating. Having mindfulness in these encounters is "spirituality" for @stortebeker.
For her, we must understand that to achieve spiritual development we must empty our mind, try to forget what we "think we know" so that with a more flexible and open mind we can explore new concepts.
This author shares her mystical experiences, highlighting as a learning that the connection with the spiritual makes her lead a more focused life, while when she moves away from it, she returns to the superficial.
In her words "we need love to be happy, and creation shows love for each and every one of its beings", her experiences have led her to realize that we come to be happy in this world and we all deserve happiness.
@ubani1 shares an amazing story about reincarnation in her family and tells us how that experience has brought her closer to spirituality.
In a wonderful story of self-improvement, this author shares his experience about spirituality and how he overcame his anxiety crisis by reconnecting with his spiritual essence.
Connecting with our hobbies and passions is a good way to connect with spirituality according to @jicrochet. Appreciating every detail of life and being congruent with the truth are key in it.
A heightened spirituality is the result of having all connections balanced, your own mind, body and soul in harmony, pointing in the same direction so you can find inner peace.
For this author, spirituality does not come packaged in dogmas, a book or in the belief and veneration of some supernatural entity. You find the connection with the whole in every act of life, appreciating each of its details.
In this wonderful post, the author tells us about Sanatan Dharma and highlights that spirituality is related to spirit and elevation of that spirit is the main goal of spirituality, although it is related to religion, but its essence lies in dharma.
@lisfabian brings us two stories of resilient men who were able to overcome physical limitations and become motivational role models. For her spirituality is knowing that you can do many things and doing them, it's taking action, it's praying but also setting out to serve others by example.
In this wonderful post @care1869 fills us with energy and good vibes. For her spirituality has to do with the awakening of consciousness, she defines it as an internal healing process that has to do with making significant changes from our being in a conscious way.
For her, spirituality is "to be an agent of change, to enjoy the spaces, valuing every second and every detail that one learns. Feeding on the energy of the stars and the universe. Becoming a complement, a whole".
This author makes some very interesting questions about the way we live and defines spirituality as the capacity we have to reach our spirit, for which we need to forget what we have learned and let ourselves be carried away by what our conscience tells us.
She gives us a beautiful mantra sung by her and tells us that spirituality is connecting with our highest potential, discovering our gifts and what we came into the world to share.
In @latifah1 words, Spiritual value is self-awareness of origin, purpose and destiny, while religion is a testimony of faith that is considered the absolute truth of the life a person lives on earth.
For him Jesus Christ is a spiritual master, not because of what religions say, but because he proved to be a non-violent person, who had a connection beyond feelings. Spiritual people are people full of kindness, simplicity, humility and love for their environment.
What practice would you recommend to achieve a spiritual connection or development?
@keritroberts recommends the practice of Yoga and meditation, because these activities have helped her connect with her inner self and her spirituality.
Natural Medicine Contest : My spiritual path
For her, spirituality is about recognizing that there is something much greater than our limited humanity, that there is a higher being who has created all things since the beginning of time. She shares with us an incredible healing story.
Your Inner Voice
She tells us that spirituality is a personal dialogue, the force that says we are in sync because the organism is aware of sensations for one's own good. You experience a state of calm even if you are in the middle of a hurricane, there is no interference, but you also don't forget to attend to the problem, it means you have achieved clarity.
Are You Spiritual? Am I Spiritual? What does "Spiritual" Mean?
She poses a series of potentially controversial questions about spirituality and highlights how subjective this concept can be. He then states that spirituality is within us, it is our energy, vibrations, aura expanding and becoming more active. Finally she leaves this question open for reflection: is spirituality life?
Spirituality / A reflection of the soul
In a beautiful and moving post, @parauri tells us that spirituality is the result and reflection of what is within us. She highlights that it is important to understand that to speak of heart is to speak of the spirit and in turn, the soul, therefore spirituality is the result of the connection with the energy center or spiritual core: GOD.
From the tangible to the intangible
She tells us that spirituality does not belong to any religion in this world, nor outside of it, she states that spirituality is inherent in being human, and once we understand this, we will regain our center and begin to fill that empty space.
Some recommendations for your spiritual journey
He shares with us many tools and resources that have helped him connect with spirituality, ranging from reading some parables and books, practicing meditation and yoga to taking shamanic medicine.
Who is a spiritual master for you? - Who is a spiritual master for you?
For her spirituality is above men, however a true spiritual guide is coherent with what he professes and his morals and ethics must be in harmony. A Spiritual Master is then the one who transcended form, time and space, who left a message for those who want to follow him, an enlightened one, a saint, who came to leave a teaching when he was alive and that will last forever.
For her spirituality is the force that moves the human being, is the food to face the different vicissitudes that life presents us, regardless of religious beliefs or spiritual practices, man always seeks to believe in something higher.
This author makes a very interesting dissertation on the different aspects of spirituality and concludes that it is about bringing to life actions that contribute to the energetic elevation of our own person and the environment.
For this author spirituality is that connection you have with yourself and what you do, so that your energy is condensed in that intimate situation where you give all of yourself to achieve something.
