Things You Can Do To Become More Spiritual

t's a common misconception that you have to be religious in order to be spiritual. But in reality, there's no single way to be a spiritual person.

It isn't a class, a church group, or a belief system. It is the moments when you are quiet, reflective, and intentional that you become your own teacher and guide—and it is in those moments that you commune with your own higher power and answers become clear."


Help Others

In order to become a more spiritual person, you must first realize that "we are all here on earth to help each other,"


Make a Wish List

A spiritual wish list doesn't contain Amazon goodies and concert tickets. Rather, it should include items that foster "self-love, self-compassion, self-acceptance, self-respect, self-appreciation, and self-gratitude.If you're still not sure what to put on your list, Pirtle suggests to start with things like "I wish for me to treat myself like my own best friend," and "I wish for me to relax and spend time in quiet and peace." In other words, think about "the energy of desires, wishes, hopes, happiness, gifts, dreams, and feel-good intentions."


Spend 15 Minutes Every Morning with the 555 Practice

The 555 practice is a morning mindfulness practice that can put the mind in a state of spirituality. "It basically just involves spending five minutes in meditation, five minutes stretching, and five minutes mentally preparing for the day.


Learn to Forgive

Forgiveness is crucial for spiritual growth Whether you realize it or not, we hold onto so much trauma from as recently as yesterday (when someone was rude to you at the checkout counter), all the way back to your oldest childhood memory (when kids called you weird)." To assist in the process of letting go, Shanmugam suggests that you "write a forgiveness list" that includes all of the people who you believe have wronged you, and then just decide to "forgive them." You have the power to do it!


Practice Patience

You don't have to go out and buy a bunch of new things like books, salt lamps, and essential oils in order to become more spiritual. It's more about taking advantage of "the opportunities that are all around you.


Listen to Your Instincts

Spiritual people know about the value of using their guts to make informed and intuitive decisions. "Our gut is extremely accurate at telling us what feels good and what doesn't—but most often, we ignore it and ask our brain to make the decision instead," says Shanmugam. "Take more opportunities to listen and follow what your gut tells you to do."
