Spiritual well-being is where you access peace, bliss, love, compassion, joy and all of the highest qualities of what it means to be human. Spiritual wellness is that place of peace and purpose within that gives you the grace to handle whatever challenges and joys life brings your way.
You can never lose these qualities. They are a permanent part of your being!
But you can lose touch with these crucial parts of yourself – especially if you get too caught up in the busy-ness of life.
Your spirit listens by responding with joy, peace, bliss, love, gratitude, happiness or compassion. It listens with expansion – especially of your heart.
Have you ever been to a live concert of your favorite artist and felt completely absorbed by the music? The magic of music allows us to communicate soul to soul and heart to heart.
When you are experiencing this connection, it is like nothing else in the world exists. It is a masterful artist who can create this connection with his or her audience.
And it allows us to deeply immerse ourselves in listening with our soul or spirit.
Another way to open the door to listening from the spirit is a sound tool like a singing Tibetan bowl, crystal singing bowl, rattle or drum.
We have brought our singing bowls to Trade Fairs across Canada over the years and one thing we always hear from people is how much their singing bowl or drum brings them peace.
Also, recorded sound that stimulates a deep brainwave state like Theta or Gamma brainwave state can assist you to reach a place of listening with the spirit.
And there is always the magic of your own voice!
Sound is one of the most powerful ways to reconnect to your spiritual self, especially the sound of your own voice. Your spirit or soul thrives on harmony and always motivates you in one way or another, through illness or angst, to return to this state of harmony.
Try this out:
- Bring your awareness to your heart or your heart chakra.
- Think of something you are grateful for. Really feel this gratitude.
- Feel your gratitude expanding to fill your whole body and even beyond.
- When you feel this expanded gratitude, give it a voice. Sing ahhhh…right from your heart and this feeling of gratitude.
- Sing the ahhhh… for at least two minutes or longer.
- Sit in silence for a couple of minutes and notice how you feel.
And there is always your own breath.
Take a few deep breaths and reconnect with the present moment. Your spiritual self thrives when you are living your life in the moment. Here you access presence, authenticity and compassion and so much more. Mindfulness is a practice that helps you to stay in the present moment.
