Whether you subscribe to organized religion or believe in God, I think there is a universal truth that we can all agree on…having a soul, the intangible part that makes us who we are. If you Google the word soul, you’ll find various definitions ranging from religious, philosophical and traditional viewpoints.
I like the one that I found on www.dictionary.com. It defines the soul as a noun: the principle of life, feeling, thought, and action in humans, 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.
Define what your spiritual self looks and feels like to you. What does it mean to you? Is it tied to an organized religious practice, or is it personal growth, and/or is it some combination of things and ideas?
Too often we are disconnected from our spiritual power, unable to tap into the tools and gifts that we were born with.
Nuture the relationship with your spiritual self regularly. The answers to many questions are there, you only need to ask.
I believe that prayer is a tool for us to talk to God. I also think that stillness, quietness, and mindfulness (meditation) are tools for us to listen to God. Both are needed if we hope to reconnect with our spiritual self.
Find a way or style that will allow you to be quiet and listen for the answers.
In life, we must care for our souls, taking time to draw on and connect to that divine part of who we are. Whether you call it prayer, speaking to the universe, or a request for help from some greater awareness, it’s an essential habit to learn, in good times or bad.
