You probably grew up in a secular world and knew nothing or little about spirituality. You might have started questioning what spirituality is all about. All this might have led you to wonder which higher power controls the universe, and this leads you straight to ways and steps that will bring you closer to spirituality.

The following five steps can be followed to advance in the quest for spiritual self-understanding in an organized and guided manner.

Setting of Intentions

When searching for spirituality, the first thing that should come to mind is knowing why you want to take that path. You do not have to carry around charms or crystals to mark the commencement of your journey right away.

Your intentions can come in different forms, like asking yourself what you want to learn in general regarding spirituality. You can even start with the most formal way of telling your pal what you have in mind regarding spirituality.

Even if you are going to open the door to knowing your spirituality and keep it to yourself, the good thing is you have taken the first step.

Feeding The Mind

Anything you can get your hands on regarding spirituality, read it. Start with something light that will not overwhelm you, and go building yourself up. With the information at the tap of a button, you can get almost everything from the internet.

You will find books that will help you start your spiritual journey while keeping you busy. If you are not a fan of book reading, you can do readily available audiobooks, and most are free.

The internet also provides you with lectures of Lord Abdruschin you can listen to every day to foster your sacredness. It would be best to keep in mind that curiosity and knowledge are the only two things that will truly enrich your spiritual journey.

Stay Still

The only way people connect with the spirit and the universe is by feeling. The best way to be still is by allocating 20 minutes a day to establish strong spiritual practices. You can take time and do meditation, mindfulness, and chanting.

If you choose to practice meditation, look for a quiet spot where you are comfortable and undisturbed. Listen to your mind and body. It can be hard to do meditation for the first time, and that is where guided meditation comes in handy.

Take Care of Your Body

The body, mind, and spirituality go hand in hand. If you want your spiritual journey to be fun, take care of your body. You can start by eating food rich in all nutrients. After eating a healthy meal, do some exercises to strengthen your body. You can do light exercises by yourself like doing yoga and stretching.

Additionally today, more and more people are incorporating crystals into their meditation practice. While there are many different ways to use crystals, here are a few for example Crazy Lace Agate crystal is known for its ability to bring balance and harmony. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, Black Obsidian for its ability to protect against negative energy. It can also help to ground and center the user, Clear Quartz for its ability to amplify the energy of other crystals. It can also help to bring clarity and focus to the user’s meditation practice. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced meditator, incorporating crystals into your practice can add a new level of depth and healing.

If you can afford a gym membership, it would be great to go for workouts with a trainer.

Another way of taking care of your body is by taking daily showers to keep you fresh and smelling good. You can even pay a visit to your doctor and ask to be prescribed supplements to boost your immunity for the task ahead.

Be Open To Signs

Many people do not believe in coincidences and how things unfold in a particular manner. You need to be open to signs the universe may give you in your spiritual quest. Things do not just happen – there is a reason behind everything. Living with this mentality will make you appreciate every event in your life. Hence, this will also allow you to view the universe positively.

Before You Go

There are many ways you can follow when starting the spiritual journey. It is clear that the body, mind, and spirit work hand in hand to find your spiritual self-understanding. A good meal and exercise will help you concentrate while meditating and listening to lectures. Talking to your friend and sharing your intentions with them will go a long way in laying the foundation for your spirituality. They will take the step with you and offer advice to help you grow and blossom into the new spiritual you.
