"cuz we are living in a spiritual world & i am a spiritual girl, ya' know..."
can it? studies say yes & it's not about a certain kind of faith or belief, not even about religion at all (don't get the 2 confused) it's about a belief in something greater than yourself, anything: nature, the light, reincarnation, GOD, Madonna...whatever "it" may be that gives you that connection so that these benefits can then come through.
1. PEACE OF MIND
meditation or any spiritual activity has been proven to be beneficial to our now stressed-out world. our crazy schedules leave us mentally & emotionally exhausted. channeling all of these daily emotions into something more calm & useful is very powerful & more useful. there's a sort of relief in letting go of negativity. this is why praying can bring peace of mind & leave you genuinely more happy.
spirituality provides the notion that whatever your skills you may have or possess...didn't come from just you. those who don't focus too much on themselves naturally attract the right attention. & though it's crucial to take pride in what you do, too much clouds judgment, alerts our ego & turns confidence into arrogance. simply put, people admire humility.
3. MORE THANKFUL
with humility comes thankfulness. of course you don't need to be spiritual to be thankful but it does inter-connect on your level of awareness. we forget that we have it better than many people in this world do. while it's always good to progress & strive for better things, appreciating what we already have instead of worrying about whether or not we're going to get certain things gives us a much healthier outlook on life.
4. LESS LONELY
be it an introvert or extrovert, like having many groups of friends or just a few best buds...no one like feeling lonely. for some, religion fills an empty gap for others it creates it. for those without that comfort it's rational to turn to spirituality. the feeling that you're being listened to helps a lot when you're going through difficult times, even if you're not being listened to by an actual person.
5. LIFE OF PURPOSE
whether it's love, happiness, success, spiritual people work hard to gain more than just material wealth & their spirituality provides that gateway to those abstract goals. whatever you believe in, living your life for something greater than yourself provides you with another purpose, a greater one.
