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:
1. You are a spiritual being
Thinking of yourself as more than just a body may seem far-fetched, a little ‘new age’ even, but there is a consciousness inside you that has given you life and continues to do so every day you remain on the planet. As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin says ‘we are spiritual beings having a human experience’.
2. You are a vibrational being
Everything in this universe vibrates, even you. Every second of the day you are emitting a vibrational frequency corresponding to your feelings. It is these vibrations which bring about the experiences in your life. You can only attract those events, people and circumstances that you are vibrating in compatibility with, so tuning into how you are feeling is integral to attracting situations that feel good to you.
3. Every relationship is designed to teach you something
Nobody enters your life by accident and everyone you come into contact with has something to teach you. Whether you know someone for a day or for a lifetime, each relationship you share is your chance to learn something about yourself, about someone else or about life.
4. The purpose of your life is to feel good
Ever heard someone say that life can’t have fun all the time? Well, this doesn’t need to be the mantra that you tell yourself. There is a reason happiness and other such emotions feel good and that is because they are natural. Hardships don’t have to be a fact of life, so don’t listen to those who tell you they do.
5. You are more powerful than you realise
Inside your body is a force more powerful than you may be aware.
Although life may feel like it is something that happens to you and that you are here to ride it out as best you can, the reality is that this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Acknowledging your spirituality can give your life a depth of purpose and meaning. It can also help to offer perspective when things just don’t seem to be going your way. Next time you find yourself under pressure at work, or fighting with your partner, remember who you really are: a creative, powerful and spiritual being here to enjoy the human experience of life and all that it has to offer.
