What is your spirit?

I have never considered myself a religious woman. But I am spiritual. In fact, connecting to my spirituality has been one of the most healing things I have ever done.

There have been times in my life when I needed and wanted to find the sweet spot that I would see highly religious people experience. I always envied the sense of community, the mutual love, and the true belief their God would guide and care for them.

So I started looking for something that would give me those things. What I have learned on my spiritual path is that it doesn’t matter who you consider to be your spirit or how you connect with it. You just need to believe in something.

I consider the Universe to be my spirit. I ask for what I want in my life and am grateful for what I am given, good or shitty. I listen to my spiritual lessons and do my best to care for myself in ways that my spirit cares for me. I believe that I am part of something bigger and that my path was set out for me long before I arrived on this earth. Change is my reminder of that path and sometimes that is clear, sometimes not so much.

I believe that people who leave us for the next realm have followed their own path and are being loved and cared for along with those who have passed before them. I also believe that if you look hard enough for signs, you can communicate with them.

We are part of something bigger than us and this thing we call our life. It’s that belief that keeps me connected to what is important to me, what I need to feel good, and how I need to get there.

It is spirit that connects us to our own humanity and that of the community around us by reminding us of our values and helping us see where we can spread our love around.

Connecting to spirit is a true act of self care and part of a healthy diy ass-kicking life. It’s like having backup to your deep core. Backup that knows everything about you and is always supporting your highest self. For me it’s not about turning my life over to spirit, its about having spirit as my partner.

If you have a spiritual practice of your own you would agree that it’s strength can be overwhelmingly powerful. In a good way.

And if you don’t have a spiritual practice…

What are you waiting for?
