I regularly mention to ‘Spiritual’ when I am talking to people, as do many other trainers in the area of personal development. I also refer to connecting with Spiritual, and submitting to Spiritual.
Consequently, I develop common questions about what these phrases mean, and how to connect to ‘Spiritual’. So here is the first in a sequence of articles on the subject.
Please evoke this is just my opinion. Everyone is free to have their own and I courage that helps to inform yours if you have inquiries about this subject.
What Is Spiritual?
To begin with let’s look at what ‘Spiritual’ is.
There a number of dictionary definitions of the word ‘Spiritual’, including:
”a place, person, or thing from which something creates or can be attained.
One that initiates
One that supplies information
The place something comes from or starts at, or the cause of something”
For me this makes sense. I use the term ‘Spiritual’ in lieu of a denominational phrase like ‘god’, but I could also interchange it with ‘the divine’, or ‘the universe’.
I am not associated with a religious belief system but I do have a faith in something greater, a religion of some sort. I choose to call it ‘Spiritual’.
And the word makes sense because of its meaning in our language. I believe it’s from where life creates, or can be found, I believe it to be the inventor of everything, one that supplies statistics through divine guidance, awareness, and motivation. And it is the place from where we come, where the whole thing starts and the cause of everything.
Where Is Spiritual?
On the other hand, I do believe that Spiritual isn’t exterior to us, that we can find ‘Spiritual’ inside ourselves when we seek awareness, and motivation wisdom, guidance, growth and more. I believe that equally we are a part of ‘it’, ‘it’ is a part of us.
I always remember discussing ‘Spiritual’ with a close family member, except that she called it ‘God’ at the time. The imagery she used really informed my belief system and is something I have regularly challenged but ultimately come back to every time. It is like a big frame of light or vitality, and a part breaks away from this big figure, and becomes ‘you’ and you go on your journey through life, and then one day, you return back to this big figure of light or energy. Many years later I read similar in the books and it made perfect sense. It still does.
The vital element to remember is that while you are dispersed from Spiritual, you always maintain a connection with it. It is as though a spark from that figure of light or energy resides within you and connects you to Spiritual forever.
Our Connection to Spiritual
I believe that’s the part, the spiritual essence, that you tap in to when you work with your intuition, when you pursue inside wisdom, or marvelous guidance, and when you have an inspired thought. I trust that whatsoever spiritual improvement work you do develops this connection with ‘Spiritual’. It allows you to remember your mission, your vision, and your reason for being. I also believe that part of your reason for being is not only to experience being a real live human being, but also to remember that you are Spiritual.
