Spirituality

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality isn’t a particular practice. It’s just a certain way of being, and to get there, you need to do a few things. Imagine it like a garden in your house. If the sunlight, the soil, and the plant aren’t placed in the right way, it won’t yield flowers, and you have to do something. You have to take care of those things if you want your garden to be full of fragrance and colors. 

Meaning, if you fertilize your mind, body, emotions, and energies to a certain level of maturity, something will blossom within you–and basically, this is called spirituality. So when the rationale is immature, you start to doubt everything. When your cause matures, it sees everything in a completely different light.

Whenever a human being experiences something beyond his imagination, it is said that it is “God’s will.” The whole idea of God is just–anything that is bigger than us. Seeking a meaningful connection with something of a greater purpose results in increased positive emotion. The transcendent moments are filled with peace, joy, and contentment. 

Self-transcendent emotions are linked to higher levels of spirituality. Various hypotheses say that spirituality is related to the ‘broaden and build’ theory. Though all positive emotions stimulate a self-transcendent state, some increase with practices in spirituality. 

Why is Spirituality Important?

Spirituality is the process of awakening from ordinary consciousness into the higher consciousness and rising above the ego. Meaning your mind starts expanding beyond common knowledge, thoughts, and limited viewpoints about life and the Universe. Spirituality also means a process of freeing your mind from fears, anxiety, and nervous thinking while experiencing inner peace and bliss in one’s everyday life. 

Some traditions, especially in the Far East like Buddhism and Advaita Vendrra, consider spirituality as a search for your true self to discover the real nature of consciousness and gain spiritual awakening. Even today, in the materialistic world, spirituality still has its place, and it’s not something that is going to disappear. Generally, it’s a sense of connection to something otherworldly, involving a profound search of one’s meaning of life. 

Three Elements of Spirituality

Just as God is all in one–Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit, humans were created in the same way as three parts: body, mind, and spirit. All three interconnected parts form a perfect harmony.

Body

Every one of us was created in a certain way with a purpose. The physical body was given in order to assist us on our quest to fulfill the purpose of our existence. Our bodies are referred to as an image of a temple where our soul dwells, and our actions are directed towards desire and satisfaction. Our body is designed to communicate its needs through sensory perception. The body serves the spirit since, without it, we wouldn’t be connected to the vital life force which happens after death since the body is destroyed.

Mind

Our mind works on different levels. It has a close relationship with the brain and soul as such, determines how our body responds. When we are born, we are connected with the intelligence of the universe, and our mind is the natural guide. Over time the mind loses the strong connection to intuition as its environment starts to influence the behavior. It’s very important for our minds to be in alignment with our spirit so we reach the source of infinite wisdom to fulfill our ultimate plan.

Spirit

Our spirit/soul is the core of our being. We can never experience any emotion, happiness, or sadness by surprising them. Life won’t exist if our mind doesn’t feed the soul. This connection contributes to our inner guidance system that raises our consciousness. The soul is nourished by the mind, and we are able to attain profound peace and inner bliss. It’s the element that establishes a connection with the divine-universal so we can become happy both inside and outside.

Spirituality vs. Religion

Before we dive deep into the differences between religion and spirituality, we must define the two terms separately. Religion’s purpose is the ultimate “belief” in God to be worshiped as a higher entity, usually with an expression through rituals or any other specific worship system involving a certain code of ethics. Spirituality can be defined as a “fact of being spiritual, non-physical” or spiritual character shown in thought, life, or spiritual tendency. 

More briefly, religion is a set of beliefs and rituals that claim to get a person closer to God, while spirituality’s main focus is on the higher self and otherworldly rather than earthly things. At its core, religion is about faith. Religions don’t require evidence for validation of their claims. Through religion, you are taught to have faith in God or the scriptures as being the ultimate truth of reality. Accepting and surrendering to the divine forces is thought to be the path that leads to ultimate salvation. 

Spirituality doesn’t dismiss faith. However, it often leans more heavily on the direct experience of the soul to the divinity. Spiritual practices like yoga and meditation allow you to make conscious contact with more expanded states of it, helping to existentially validate the teachings rather than accepting them on faith alone. You know something because you have experienced it yourself and have allowed it to resonate as opposed to taking the word of another. 

Main differences between religion and spirituality

Religion has various lists of rights or wrongs, while spirituality is all about the laws of the universe. Spirituality is not loving and moral codes, rules, nor worshiping any deities, but it does represent various facts and laws in the inner self.

Spirituality is about approaching the inner self and how different universal law affects an individual as an inner power. Religion is about devotion to God that a person believes in as an outside power. 

Spirituality is a more personalized approach followed privately, as an individual practices his own experience. A spiritual individual learns from trials and errors. But once a person is a member of a religion, one learns from different experiences or different people. 

Spirituality is all about finding truths and fulfilling a purpose. Spirituality would encourage humans to follow their ways and make stories. It helps humans set a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment, which is only limited to the inner self. 

Types of Spirituality

The core principle of spirituality is getting in touch with yourself, and there are various paths for a person to achieve that. These are the most common ones:

Mystical Spirituality

Mystical spiritualism is focused on the intuitive part of the soul. People who have mystical spirituality believe there is a greater purpose to every experience in life. Meaning that every experience goes beyond the material or physical world, and everything can be brought into one great unity. People supporting this idea believe that everything happens for a reason, and everything has a greater explanation that would unite all the different experiences.

Authoritarian Spirituality

People devoted to authoritarian spirituality are associated with religious beliefs without following the spiritual set of rules of religion because of conflicts. They develop fundamental religion, which they believe is the most truthful one. Authoritarians tend to discard any other religion, which is, unfortunately, the cause for radical religious terrorism.

Intellectual Spirituality

Knowledge is the core belief behind this type of spirituality. Spiritual people are intellectually prone to gaining knowledge of spiritual theories and analyzing the information they receive. This is called studying theology. However, this type isn’t solely related to studying religion. Intellectual spiritualism helps people improve their spirituality through knowledge.

Service Spirituality

Service Spirituality is experiencing spiritual peace when serving others. This spirituality is achieved by helping others without expecting anything in return. People get in touch with their spiritual selves by doing something that will benefit someone without getting the same things back.

Social Spirituality

Experiencing spiritual awakening when you are surrounded by other people. Many people are proactive by being around other people when searching for a greater purpose in life. This is mostly experienced by being in religious groups. This can be achieved with any other form of nature-related exercises and activities, meditation, etc.

Understanding Spirituality

Spirituality is always thought to be about God, religion, and rituals. Often when a person finds himself in front of a temple, he feels spiritual even though his mind wanders unintentionally, which also happens when he prays. This is why modern generations think that spirituality and practicality don’t go hand in hand, and spirituality is considered impractical. 

Spirituality is more of a way of raising effectiveness o a higher level by sharpening the perspectives of the mind. It is a knowledge of self and its relationship with God and the purpose of one’s existence, and how to achieve that purpose or goal. 

When people ask what the purpose of being spiritual is, the answer is simple, it’s a matter of free will. Everyone tries to be spiritual willingly or incidentally. This often happens when one wishes to forget about the materialistic things, the physical details of people, and luxuries of the world, only wanting to be oneself in peace, love, and harmony.

Who is a Spiritual Person?

A spiritual person remains content with the self and devotes his time, not to materialistic pursuits but to remain in the company of the divide by experiencing true love, peace, and happiness which are more lasting than material achievements. Such a person sees everyone as a soul and loves every person in this world regardless of their religion, gender, race. He would remain peaceful no matter how people and situations around him would be because of how true to himself he is. 

Shadow Work in Spirituality

Our subconscious mind is called a shadow cause we cannot see it clearly, and we aren’t aware of it. Whatever we reject about ourselves, it goes right there in the shadows of our mind, coming in unexpected ways to haunt us. Every time someone says something bad about you, it affects everything you do, even if you appear that you aren’t affected by it.

What we deny in a certain aspect of ourselves doesn’t really disappear. It just fades away from our awareness and stays hidden in the corners of our subconsciousness. The shadow is the inner disintegration that you experience. It’s almost as if your life is being run by two different individuals. 

Imagine meeting the most gentle, kindest, and loving individual, only to have them transformed into someone obnoxious, frightening person. This is because there are parts of ourselves we cease to control, and with the dismissing of the shadows, they have an influence on us in certain situations.  

All it takes is self-awareness to experience inner healing and transformation through shadow work. There comes a time in life where every person faced something terrible in their life that left them with shadows. The good thing is that the entire universe conspires to help us become whole again. Every action is headed towards our direction of growth and healing. 

We are given several opportunities to face our dark shadow self so we can finally become free from it. It doesn’t matter how long you have been avoiding your shadow self; it will keep manifesting into your reality until you finally decide to face it and find peace.

Spirituality and Health

It’s fairly known that spiritual practices are closely connected with better health and wellbeing for many reasons. These types of practices guide you directly towards specific inward-looking reflection, concentrating on specific sensations or concepts. Many spiritual traditions are dedicated to contemplative practices to increase empathy.

There is vast spreading evidence indicating that spiritual practices are associated with better health and well-being for many reasons, including empathy, compassion, attention, and peace of mind.

Spiritual health refers to the innermost self, which is your core dimension, giving you a complete sense of who you are, where you came from, and where you are going. Even if spiritual health and wellbeing don’t take an important part in your life, their significance is stronger than you may think. 

Wellness is defined in the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit. These dimensions show through physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health. We cannot attain total wellness if we ignore any of these dimensions. 

Spiritual wellness may lead to different things and different people. Spirituality can be taken as a synonym related to the quality of personal relationships, the love for nature, or be considered as a traditional religion. The basic foundation for spiritual wellness may be a sense that life is meaningful only if you have found a place in it. 

Spirituality and Science

Even though the relationship between spirituality and science isn’t certainly contentious, it certainly has its difficulties. Taking emotions scientifically can be like searching for the meaning of shapes we see in the clouds. While the experience of emotions varies from one person to another, the experience of transcendent emotions can be seen as more universal than it is connected to spirituality. 

Self-transcendent emotions connect us through prosocial behaviors. Emotions like compassion and awe join us through their prosocial capacity. Transcendent feelings promote behaviors that connect human beings and stabilize prosocial connections.

These emotions possess the power to bind individuals together, as they are linked with higher levels of spirituality, focusing on others for developing more meaningful, purpose-filled interactions. Many positive psychology interventions grounded in ancient religions and spiritual teaching aren’t typically included in treatment for psychopathology. They are validated for the following four virtues: hope, gratitude, forgiveness, and self-compassion.

By exploring the psychological theory behind these fur virtues, science and spirituality together can undoubtedly serve more people. 

Psychology started explaining hope in the 1950s, stating that the simple meaning of hope focused on goal attainment and visualizing a better future. This theory includes both pathways, the path to attaining the goal and reaching the final point. Hope reflects the belief that one can find ways to achieve desired goals and become motivated to use those resources. By this definition, it drives the emotions and well-being of human beings. 

Depending on one’s world’s view, hope can open perceptions on how to connect to divinity and improve well-being even though it may differ from a person’s religion and their point of understanding the role of the divine and the meaning of hope.  

How do you Practice Spiritually?

One can look into spirituality as a mountain climb in which each person takes a different path to reach the top, but all have a common destination. While millions of people still are searching for answers to life’s most difficult questions, truth, traditional religious law, and prayers, others try new approaches fusing different customs from different faiths into modern living. As global communities interact more and more with each other, new practices emerge, bringing up unique blends of spirituality from around the world.

Finding answers to big questions isn’t easy. Daily spiritual practices might not provide the explanation you want to hear right now or ever. Still, they have many positive benefits on overall health and wellbeing. Small everyday rituals can create better lifestyle habits and set positive interaction, slowly developing a more profound purpose.

Practicing Spirituality for Beginners

Here is a small guide on how to get started on your spiritual quest towards a more fulfilling life.

Start small

Don’t worry too much about adopting a new belief system and how to approach its practice. It’s normal to find it kind of abstract and confusing. Look for things that will resonate with you and will be relevant to your unique lifestyle.

Stay Silent

Once or twice a day, take time for yourself and sit in complete silence and focus on your breathing. As simple as it is. Just give yourself time away from the usual distractions like your TV, phone, or Facebook instead of just turning inward.

Commit to your practice

Whatever it is, just stay committed. Create a little discipline that you will follow conscientiously whenever it’s a 10-minute sitting in silence, a run, yoga class, just to do it every day without question.

Practice kindness

Start practicing kindness and act with compassion. But remember to take it into the world; by starting with being kind to yourself first. Connect with what it is in your heart and honor it. If you get that gut feeling that something isn’t right, no matter how rational it seems, you don’t have to commit to doing it.  

Observe and accept

New awareness brings new information. With this information comes insight. Watch yourself without judgment or psychoanalysis. Sometimes you may dislike what you see, but still try to accept it and trust that awareness brings change. 

Don’t be afraid of the change

Change is a constant process in our lives. Embrace everything that comes with it through any practice that invites it. Even though it can be scary, you will never know where it will take you. Once you are ready to get deeper, there are many wonderful books and resources that will support your spiritual development.

Types of Spiritual Practices

Meditation

An experience that takes you to the depths of your being, discovering who you truly are. You, as your real self, stripped down from the perception you had about yourself until that point in your life. In the process, you’ll experience joy and peace. A feeling of love and light warming up your whole being. Meditation will help you let go of the anxious thoughts about everything that already happened or possibly will happen in the future. The present is where you want to find solace, from the innate longing to see and think beyond the chaotic world surrounding you.

Traditions around the world consider spiritual meditation as a way to connect to the divine. There are thousands if not millions of religious and spiritual traditions that include meditation in different forms. A few of those examples in major religions include

  • Mantra Meditation
  • Hindu Japa Mala 
  • Sufi Dhikr or remembrance of God
  • Jewish kabbalistic practices
  • Loving-kindness – metta dedication in Buddhism
  • Maranaunussati Bhavana – reflection on one’s morality in Theravada Buddhism
  • Zazen meditation in Zen Buddhism
  • Trance states in Shamanic traditions
  • Christian contemplative prayer

If you want to experience some of the great benefits of meditation but you don’t know where to start, these tips can help you understand it better. Also, how to make it part of your regular routine so you can truly see how it changes you in many ways. 

Before you begin the practice, it’s important to really understand the benefits of meditation. The more you understand meditation, the easier it will be to stay focused and dedicated to the art form and make it a component of your regular daily routine. 

So, what is the ending result? Well, the reason that meditation has been popular for so long and still remains is that it can truly touch every component of your life, including 

  • reducing stress
  • helping gain focus and concentration 
  • promoting better sleep, improving circulation 
  • increasing self-awareness
  • promoting happiness
  • helping with anxiety and regulating mood
  • slowing down aging
  • boosting immune system
  • helping with memory
  • increasing emotional strength

How to start practicing meditation

Be in a comfortable position

Before you start with your meditation, one of the most important aspects is to find a place that makes you calm and take the position that will be comfortable for your body. This can include a spot away from the city noise where you can surround yourself with greenery and the gentle chirping of the birds. 

Meditation can put you into sleep fast, and to avoid that, you have to be extra cautious about the position you meditate in. Try sitting in Vajrasana, Padmasana and Sukhasana. If you find it painful to sit on the floor, you can feel free to use a chair instead and keep your back straight or lean onto a wall, whatever works the best for you.

Experience the process  

When you want to accomplish a certain task, what do you actually do? You plan it and take everything into progression. However, this is not actually the right way to deal with meditation. From here, you have to let everything go. 

Just free yourself and let it take its course in a natural way. Don’t bother to get it right, but simply concentrate on the outcome and allow the process to happen on its own. 

Accept the thoughts

We live in a world where we are constantly loaded up with information, either through social media or breaking news, making our minds buzzing, disturbing our brains. It is a never-ending game, meaning that you don’t have to respond to every thought coming through. 

Thoughts can overwhelm you even when you sit for meditation. Simply allow your thoughts to go past you naturally and resist the desire to respond to them. Allow them to drift away and try returning to your work.

Say a prayer

Say a little prayer while you sit there to stop your thoughts from disturbing your peaceful composure. Prayer doesn’t necessarily have to be religious in nature. You are free to say anything that is beneficial to you or that you enjoy. It can be a simple word or a sentence. If you are enthusiasts in nature, it may even be linked to something that will make you joyful, like a mantra. 

Maintain your body in a relaxed position and breathe slowly and naturally. Observe as your breath enters and leaves your body. After each mental interruption, return to your body and continue breathing. Then with each breath, recall the previous step.

Reflect on you

Concentrate on your body as well as your awareness and presence in the space. Make yourself aware of your surroundings and take notice of how your body feels. Pay close attention to your breathing and thoughts. 

Relax deeply and maintain your composure. Slowly open your eyes and sit in the same posture for a while. Feel and appreciate the sensations of lightness in your body and observe how you are less irritated than you were before the meditation. Finally, exit the meditation zone, stretch a little and resume your natural routine. 

Yoga

Many people imagine yoga as a clumsy position and extreme flexibility. But many people forget or simply do not realize that yoga is a full-body workout. The practice was developed in ancient India with the initial goal of training to become aware of the body and thought spiritual activities. 

It has evolved into many other forms since then, as each type achieves the same aim of the mind-body connection, but it does it in a different way. 

Spiritual yoga has been increasingly popular in recent years, and many people are wondering how it may help them achieve their spiritual needs. The ability to go to the very heart of who you are and gain the intuitive insight needed to live a prosperous life is the spiritual aspect of yoga. 

Spiritual yoga is a global notion that may be practiced regardless of one’s religious beliefs. It is not about the expensive yoga studios or the sophisticated yoga positions. It’s simple to find an answer to the question “Who am I?”

Benefits of practicing Yoga

Yoga is not a religious practice, but it’s both a technique and a philosophy. It is a way of seeing the world and your role in it from a different perspective. Thousands of years ago, it began in the Hindu monastic tradition as a technique for spiritual philosophers to deepen and more completely perceive their own selves.

To commit to yoga practice, you simply need to have the desire and will to do it, as these practices will meet you where you are regardless of your religious beliefs and background. Anyone can utilize these skills to develop their own spiritual life.

Yoga’s greater purpose is to teach you to let go and be present in every moment, giving you the gift of a peaceful mind even in a state of chaos. You feel liberated from the pain in this extended condition of consciousness. Life becomes more enjoyable and purposeful as you realize your inherent spiritual nature. The most important benefit of yoga’s essence is the reunion of body, mind, and spirit. 

Types of Yoga 

Whether you desire a more physically challenging session or a gentle, peaceful, contemplative class, you can choose from a variety of yoga forms. You will notice that each technique somewhat differs from the others. Trying a few different styles before settling on one will improve your overall yoga experience and push you to step out of your comfort zone. 

Vinyasa Yoga

The Sanskrit meaning of Vinyasa is “to position in a specific way.” Vinyasa yoga is typically considered to be the most athletic form of yoga. It’s a creative way in which postures are connected together in a flow sequence aligned with the breath. 

What makes it so appealing is the diversity because Vinyasa yoga doesn’t have a set order, style, and tempo as it changes depending on the teacher. Classes can be organized around peak posture such as backbends or may focus on a specific theme such as chakras or other aspects of yoga philosophy. 

Depending on the students and their dynamic, it can focus on strengthening postures or may be slower flow emphasizing mobility and flexibility. 

Hatha Yoga

Hatha is a Sanskrit term for “umbrella” for all physical postures, referring to all the other styles of yoga such as (Lyengar, ashtanga, etc.) that are based on the physical practice in the West. Hatha yoga lessons are a great option for beginners since they are often slower-paced than other types of yoga. Hatha yoga is a traditional technique for breathing and movements that is being practiced today. 

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar yoga helps you achieve mental, physical, and spiritual strength. Iyengar is specially designed using bolsters, bricks, straps, sandbags, and benches to help you experience the full benefits of asana and pranayama. 

The instructor often performs positions to help you expand your understanding of the postures and create an overall awareness of body and self. You will also be encouraged to work at your own pace and cope with any injuries or illnesses you may be working with. 

Aerial Yoga

Instead of doing yoga poses on a mat, aerial yoga uses a silk hammock or sling hanging from the ceiling. The hammock’s purpose is to provide support through your yoga flow. Simultaneously enhancing your flexibility and range of motion. The hammock also relieves the strain on specific parts of the body, such as the head and shoulders, making it easier to achieve more difficult positions like headstands.

Affirmations

Affirmations are statements you make to make yourself about who you want to be. They have been used for ages, whether in the form of mantras or prayers since they are effective. Of course, choosing the correct words to communicate your affirmations is crucial. 

Positive affirmations may help you consciously activate and elevate principles like love, selfless service, creative expression, truth, prosperity, generosity, and divine guidance.

You should carefully compose your affirmations, so make sure they are focused on a vision of what you desire instead of what you want to get rid of. So whatever you think, will be empowered. When you speak affirmations, the best way is to simply declare your vision to be true.

Your subconscious mind is powerful enough to hear your words and plan your experience and behavior to reflect and give life to them. Your subconscious is so strong that some of the magic attributed to wizards, psychics, and gods throughout history may be explained as subconscious mind abilities.

Affirmations are so effective on a mundane level; believing that you are meant to be wealthy inspires you to act more confidently and make decisions based on empowerment and security rather than fear of necessity. Approaching life confidently with a positive attitude will usually result in more pleasant and prosperous circumstances.

Law of Attraction

At this present moment, you might not even be aware, but unseen forces may guide your life, and one of them is the Law of Attraction. Just like any other law of gravity, its effect is working in a manner as it controls the circumstances in your life more than you can possibly imagine. 

Each moment of the day, you are the active creator of your reality. Every thought, either being conscious or subconscious, tailors your future, and then comes a day when you think, “Wait a minute. This is a law of attraction?”

Once you understand this law, you can use it to change your life for the better. So if you focus on abundance and good things in your life, you will automatically attract more positive happenings. But if you center yourself on the negative thought, you will ultimately attract misfortune and stray from your wishes and dreams.

Put it like this; if you feel excited and enthusiastic, passionate and happy, you are emitting positive vibrations and energy to the universe. In turn, that positive energy will attract people and opportunities that resonate on the same energetic level. 

On the contrary, if you are feeling dissatisfaction, anger, resentment, and sadness, you are sending out negative energy, which will repel the positivity and attract pessimistic people and events into your life. 

Manifestation

Manifestation is putting all your focus towards something in your life and hoping it will happen, then visualizing it already happening. In other words, the picture you see in your mind becomes a reality. Manifestation subconsciously creates your life as you would like it to be. When we become aware of the power we carry in our subconsciousness, we can control everything that happens. 

Manifestation and spirituality work hand in hand, as they both have a way of connecting us with ourselves. Many people think that manifestation doesn’t work simply because they tried to manifest the perfect spouse or become rich. Meanwhile, they missed opportunities and motivation that could have helped them get their ideal spouse, money, or a healthy body. 

You can’t just imagine a perfect body or your dream job and wait for it to happen. But you can manifest ideas and opportunities that will lead you towards those goals. All you have to do is notice the signs and take action towards them.

Sleep and dreams

Dreams are one of the fascinating phenomena we experience in our lives. We need to sleep to collide with a desire to enter a world where the spirits can roam free without limitations of the physical body.

In various writings, some statements claim that “God embraces worlds besides this one, and creatures apart from the creatures.” Meaning that the world we live in is completely different and separate from our dream world, which is within us, and it’s neither beginning nor end.

Sleep detaches us from all the earthly things, and God lets us travel throughout the realm, which is hidden in the innermost reality of this world. In this dream realm, there are messages to meditate on and secrets to discover.

The question that captivates all of us is whether dreams can foretell the future. Through history and time, many attribute the predictive power of dreams to spirituality and divine intervention. Any individual who enters the dreams states there are numerous instances in which dreams actually do come true, but it happens in ways that were not anticipated. 

Twin flames

A twin flame is an intense soul connection with someone thought to be one person’s other half, also called a “mirror soul.” It’s based on the idea that the soul it’s split into two bodies once it was created. And when the two halves come together, they have both challenging and healing experiences. 

This is due to the mirroring nature of a twin flame. They come to show your deepest insecurities, fears, and shadows. But also help you overcome them and vice versa. Your twin will be equally as affected as you. 

Twin flames union is all about spiritual growth, and its purpose is to awaken their souls. They are challenging because they are presenting you with the things you are escaping. They are different from other relationships because this type of connection cannot be shared with anyone else on Earth–since you are both created together to become one.

How do you know if you have met your twin flame?

Instant recognition and intense attraction

Twin flame meeting is something that will leave a deep mark in your life. There is an immediate sense of recognition and attraction. It happens instantly, as your bond is solidified and all the pieces of your life just seem to come together.

Synchronicity

Twin flames are characterized by a sense of synchronicity. As the relationship unfolds, twin flames find they share the same moral compass and have matching interests. Twin flames can happen to have the same past experiences or plenty of coincidences.

Intense emotions

When you meet your twin flame, you will feel intense emotions. Your world is turned upside down, and everything you feel, both good and bad, will feel overwhelming. 

Exposed insecurities and doubts

Just as your emotions will be strong, your insecurities will be even stronger, as well as your fears and doubts. Your twin flame is your mirror, and it comes to show you the things you are holding back, everything that you astray or resent from bringing it forth, with a purpose to work them through, grow, and become better on the other side.

Drawn to each other

From the moment you meet, you feel a strong magnetic attraction. It’s a constant overwhelming pull. Even though the attraction can be sexual, it can be a simple desire to be in that person’s presence as well.

On-off turbulent relationship

Twin flame relationships are all sunshine and butterflies; they are turbulent and chaotic. The reason behind this is that you are being forced to control the parts of yourself that you don’t like. It’s like coming face to face with your demons on a battleground and fighting your emotions that feel like too much to handle. 

At the end of the day, the twin flame union comes with a purpose to make you a better person and awaken your untapped potential by igniting a deep fire within you. It pushes you to do better and open up to the world of possibilities that you have never dreamed of.

Spirituality Books

Finding ways to enrich our souls and balance our emotions is a never-ending journey. A good read that inspires and nourishes our mind and soul may help us feel more connected and at peace among troubling times. Practicing habits encourage us to be inventive, creative, and kind to ourselves and others. 

For many of us, looking on the inside may be an unexplored option. Reading spiritual literature is a wonderful way to find inspiration to overcome life’s greatest challenges and discover new methods to practice gratitude and attain appropriate mentality and confidence.
