This is a term that is of course not new and its definition may differ, depending on the context. Within the context of well-being and personal health, being spiritual is a term that refers to how a person feels in relation to their connection with a higher being, something bigger and more powerful than oneself, to the religious beliefs of each person, or also to the sense of purpose and meaning in the life of each individual. In this context, “spiritual being” refers to the practice of looking within. That is, to take action to know yourself.
You may wonder, how can I be more spiritual?
Well, a simple habit to begin to know yourself is to take time to be in total silence, either through breathing exercises or meditation. Remember that meditation is not an activity that is linked to a religious practice. In fact, meditating is not something that is done, it is rather something that is. For example, you are meditative when you say a prayer, when you stare at the sky just to admire the clouds, the color of the horizon, etc. Or when you sit in a park admiring the landscape or go for a walk and focus on how you breathe, the landscape and how you feel, instead of paying attention to the thousands of thoughts that go through your head.
And finally, you will wonder, what good is it being a spiritual being?
Being spiritual promotes feelings of harmony and inner peace, as well as happiness, which play a very important role in overall health and well-being. One of the advantages of knowing oneself, through spirituality, is that it helps us to stop for a moment, leaving daily activities aside. When you stop simply to breathe or admire a landscape or say a prayer for just a few minutes a day, you can identify how you feel, what affects you, what you want to change in your life, and you can even stop to be meditative just to appreciate yourself with mistakes and virtues. This practice also fosters qualities such as compassion and forgiveness.
