The goal of spirituality is for us all to find inner meaning and connection with our deeper self. The benefits of living from our authentic selves, expressing our emotions, is when we do so, others are not afraid to do the same. It becomes a rippling effect, with more and more people realising, it’s ok to have moments of frustration, anger, sadness and to experience pain. This is part of being human and when we acknowledge these emotions, we begin to love ourselves unconditionally which is the core essence of living a spiritual life.
We can do certain activities to work towards living our most authentic spiritual life.
Self acceptance work. When we understand our shadow is not our enemy and our emotions are not shortcomings, we are able to work with these emotions to move forward
Accept our emotions and work at processing :
Journaling lets us express our emotions in written form
Practicing Self compassion and non judgmental awareness of yourself
Connect to things that are meaningful to you, Meditate, pray or read scripture to ask for guidance
Seek counselling or therapy
What we can do for others:
Provide a safe space for people to share their emotions genuinely, by showing patience, kindness and understanding
Practice our own self love and acceptance so we are able to accept others pains and sufferings without judgement
Encourage regular counselling or therapy, so people are able to voice emotions and feelings
Honouring and Serving,
