With spirituality on the rise and an increasing interest in the law of attraction, affirmations have become commonplace for many people.
Life coaches and motivational speakers are full of praise for affirmations and it’s not hard to see why: they have the power to transform any and every area of our lives. But it can be tricky to find the perfect affirmation especially when we have numerous aspects of our lives that we wish to change.
It’s easy to forget who we really are. So many of us fail to look past the body we live our life in and are unable to see ourselves as more than just flesh and bones. But the truth is that we are more than just flesh and bones, our thoughts being the perfect example of a non-physical part of who we are.
Recognising our spiritual nature allows us to appreciate the magnificence of life and places our day-to-day dramas in context.
If you feel your life needs a little more perspective, take at a look at these spiritual truths:
With the summer quickly fading away and the cold nights drawing in, now is the perfect time to think about what you’d like to achieve for the rest of 2016.

You can do this by incorporating the following steps that can contribute towards your spiritual happiness:
What is the soul? Is it the principle of life, a feeling, a thought, an action in humans. The soul has been regarded as a distinct entity separate from the body, and commonly held to be separable in existence from the body; the spiritual part of humans as distinct from the physical part.
Benjamin Franklin wrote in a personal letter, “…in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes!” Every minute on earth, 108 people die. Ultimately, everyone dies. It is not a matter of if, but when?
However, is the soul also something that is certain?
This is what the experts say:
‘Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul’
Popularized by DR King, yogic prayer is a way to ‘transmit energy from point A the prayer [i.e. the person praying], to point B – the person who needs that prayer’. The prayer points are known as chakras, an Indian term referring to the seven centres of spiritual energy in the human body.
Emotions like anger and resentment are sometimes the hardest to let go. A lot of the time moving on and learning to forgive is far easier said than done. They can affect us subconsciously in both our personal and professional lives while we continue to blame outside sources.
We end up walking around with these negative emotions stored up until one day we realise the damage it has done and how our spirit has been stunted in the process. The day you realise you are carrying around all these different bags of emotion that drag you down, is the day you can take steps towards forgiveness and ultimately your soul will become lighter and freer.
