Life and death are two very important aspects of our existence.  Yet, many of us have little time on a daily basis to recognize the value of the life we live or how quickly it could be taken away, actually or actually.  It isn't really necessary to overthink our existence, rather to respect the life we are given by living it to it's fullest.

Thinking about the future while closing the door to the past

Living life to the fullest means taking on life's challenges, responsibilities & goals.  In doing so, we occasionally find ourselves in a situation where life seems to overtake us.  Our "everyday" is so overwhelming that we can barely keep up with it all.  Soon, one thing affects another and we start to lose sight of what’s most important to us. 

For many of us, we stress over being able to provide for our family, home and spouse.  Unfortunately, as time goes on, the most valued parts of our life lose our attention and all the daily stressors are still front and center.  

As we begin to watch our life change during our divorce, we may start overthinking and worrying about our decisions. We may ruminate over those aspects of our existence, our life and goals in an effort to find a new improved direction. 

Instead of finding that direction, we get buried in our problems and begin to have concerns about "how" to start over.  It's not uncommon to be fearful that we may make similar mistakes as we did when married.  Some of us may fear we’ll never find true love or that we’ll get into another bad marriage. 

The more we consider such things, the worse we feel.  Our self esteem drops and we no longer have confidence to make good decisions.  We can't seem to get out of our own way.

It's easy to delay making effective decisions and focus wholly on the important things in our life while keeping up our daily routine.     But, that doesn't solve our problems either. Where do we turn?

Despite numerous friends and family members giving us advice, these decisions are ours to make.  We need a clear perspective and spiritual guidance to begin a new path towards our future.

Experience your own spiritual enrichment 

It's amazing that when things are so difficult we compound our problems by questioning every little thing we do, everything that happens and everything possible.  We may question ourselves, our faith, even the meaning of life.   While it does complicate things to overthink our life, beliefs and reasoning;  it's completely normal. 

Major life changes will challenge the confidence of even the strongest-willed individual.  Reduced confidence causes us to search for meaning and perspective to explain our loss and help us move forward with the assurances we are making better decisions.  

At that time we also naturally develop a greater sense of faith and spirituality.  Perhaps we seek a stronger relationship with God in an effort to seek guidance While developing our individuality.  This gives us the opportunity to find our own answers and develop a resilience to our problems and fears independently with the help of our faith. 

Through prayer, meditation and relaxation techniques we can be mindful of our present with the skills and experience to make good decisions without the actual events and people from our past, clouding our thoughts and confidence to make decisions.  This brings about a clearer perspective with less emotional turbulence, more strength and courage to face the negative issues that formerly took over our life.

First, find the reasons you wish to achieve a spiritual awakening.  

Answer important questions

  • What are the problems in my life?
  • What problems hold me back from making important, life changing decisions?
  • What ownership do I have for my problems?
  • What can I do to improve my life and rid myself of my problems?
  • Am I ready to be faithful to daily prayer or meditation and spiritual goals in an effort to find my truest purpose?
  • Am I committed to realizing spiritual goodness to provide a clearer path to a better future?

Choose how you will awaken your spirituality

Religion - Many of us are religious but may find ourselves only going through the rituals of our faith instead of fulfilling the greater sense of spirituality that really creates a bond or connection with God, Allah, Brahman or spiritual beliefs.  In seeking more from our religion we should expect to give more.  This will provide for us a sense of greater purpose.  In giving, we receive.  

Ways to fulfill your spiritual goals through religion

  • Join the choir
  • Go on a mission trip
  • Help the poor, aging or sick
  • Volunteer at your synagogue, church or temple
  • Create something with others from your church
  • Pray, seek, give, do, accept
  • Increase your religious practices

Fitness - Realization of the greatest gift, our own human life, can inspire us to spiritually awaken while we improve our health and body.  Regardless of our faith, religion or God, the power of the human spirit comes alive with the protection and value we place on our body.  

Ways to fulfill our spiritual goals through physical fitness

  • Yoga, Pilates or other stretching exercise
  • Meditation and mindfulness
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Improved diet
  • Martial arts
  • Team exercise

Independent - "You know you."  The power of the human mind can outwit the brain and body.  Often, we assume the mind can play tricks on us, causing us to think things that aren't clear, feel pain or have problems that don't really exist.  We often don't realize the power our mind has to do just the opposite also.  A strong mind can also manage pain, develop intuitive strategies and control outside influences that cause our brain and body to suffer.  Using our mind through a variety of techniques to relax, clear our thoughts, sleep, control pain and improve our pattern-of-thought can help us achieve our spiritual goals.  Spiritual and relaxation practices can help you gain greater control of your mind and develop greater emotional intelligence.

Ways to fulfill our spiritual goals through independent thought and mediation practices

  • Music therapy
  • Deep breathing techniques 
  • Meditation and mindfulness
  • Reading books of faith, spiritual guidance or inspirational stories
  • Nature walk
  • Take a vow of silence for the day
  • Help someone with nothing expected in return
  • Apologize to someone
  • Ask someone for help with something
  • Create something that benefits nature or whole living
  • Sing, write or dance

Develop a lifetime bond with your spirit

Life is full of numerous ways to allow you to clear your perspective and find the answers to questions that prevent you from moving forward in your life.  Awaken your spirit and find a closeness to your inner consciousness that will provide a clear path towards a happier future.  Maintain this connection to your spirituality so that you always have courage to understand and solve your problems with a clear mind, strong faith and inner confidence.
