Spiritual self-care

Spiritual self-care is the activity we engage in to find and nurture a sense of connection to God or a Higher Power and meaning for our lives.  It is necessary to nurture your soul with spirit, just as you nurture your body with food. A certain amount of effort and discipline are necessary to nurture and maintain our spiritual self.

Connecting with God or a Higher Power

Higher Power – Feeling connected with a greater energy source, with God, or a Higher Power perhaps is the beginning of our spiritual self-care. All of us have a vital life force within that brings meaning to life.  Feeling this presence, means we are connecting to God or our Higher Power.

When things are going along smoothly in your life, you may not think often of your Higher Power or God, but when life becomes challenging and we need support, a disconnect to God or your Higher Power can happen and we feel like we don’t know how to move forward in life.

The thing is finding the inner strength to believe in God or your Higher Power to help you feel you can go on.  Whether you are at a time of peace or crisis in your life, there are a few things that can help you on your spiritual journeys, such as meditation and contemplation.

Meditation

Meditation – A common key to balance and inner peace in many people is meditation. If you practice meditation daily, it can be extremely effective, and a natural part of life that is so simple. Meditation is sitting quietly and detaching from your thoughts, even for a short time period.

Through life, we learn that we should focus on our physical selves, and forget to know how to look within. If we meditate each day we can recapture and restore a sense of peace to our lives. Many say if they meditate on a regular basis their lives seem more manageable. That after meditating they are able to detach from worries and concerns and get back to a sense of balance.

With meditation, we can experience God’s or a Higher Power presence and it gives us direction in our lives. We can strive to unite our will with the Will of God, which we express through our actions.

Contemplation

Contemplation is reflecting in deeper thought and going beyond meditation. Contemplative prayer is not a prayer that we can cause to happen.  It begins with a meditative practice where we focus on a word and repeat it over and over clearing our mind of outside issues which then allows us to receive the graces of God.

We should live the life of the Gospel and listen for direct guidance from God, and feel His presence. God’s gives when and where He wills. Therefore, all believing in Christ are invited to strive for the unfailing holiness and perfection of love of their own state of life.

Do not let the use of worldly things or attaining riches, hinder them in their quest for perfect love.  Jesus said in Mark 4:24 “And he said unto them, Take heed what you hear: with what measure you use, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.”

Contemplative prayer has slowly increased in popularity along with the rising church movement, which welcomes many unscriptural ideas.

A sense of higher purpose

Purpose – Daily events of life become more meaningful when we have a sense of higher purpose.  You experience a greater sense of well-being and confidence.  You are more likely to let go of blame, regret, guilt, and many of the things that leave us feeling stuck with nowhere to go.

Involved with a spiritual community

Spiritual Support – Whether it is worshipping God or a Higher Power, being involved with a spiritual community gives us the support of people believing and following a similar path we follow.  Churches, spiritual groups, and meditation centers can provide the support you might need through meetings and events that celebrate life.

If we care for ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, we can find a sense of peace and meaning in our lives.

  1. Thank you Louise, I appreciate your feedback! When I write these posts I try not to offend anyone but share different viewpoints on what God or a Higher Power can mean in people’s lives! I love reading your posts and Betty’s, and how you present and share your relationships with God and all the ways we can share and grow in what we believe!

  2. Denise, what a powerful post! I love this, and especially meditation. I feel that if everyone would connect spiritually within themselves, life would be so much better for so many people. Thanks for sharing, my friend. 🙂

    1. Thank you Brenda, I am so glad you enjoyed it! I find different ways people connect with God or a High Power so interesting! I agree, and people seem so angry today, and many times instead of trying to find a way to get closer to God, they turn to social media to criticize other people and what is going on in the world!

  3. This post resonates with my life recently! I love reading the Bible as my guide. I grew up very active in the church community and making friends in the religious community. It’s nice to have friends who share the same beliefs as we do. Thanks for sharing this. I appreciate all this and as always well put together.
