Spirituality is the place within yourselves where your soul can find a sense of peace. It’s a concept completely liberated from any rules, institutions or hierarchy and it’s dedicated to the human soul.
Spirituality is a personal experience that creates a system of personal beliefs when searching for the meaning of life.
Being spiritual can mean different things to different people. For some, spirituality can be related to religion and even higher power. For others, it can be a non-religious experience such as connecting with nature, art, yoga, meditation, etc.
This type of spirituality is focused on the intuitional part of the soul . People who have mystical spirituality believe that there’s a greater unity to every experience in life.
Every experience goes beyond the material or physical world, and everything can be brought into one greater unity. For example, people with this type of spirituality may support the idea that everything happens for a reason. There’s a greater explanation behind everything and that would be what unites all the different experiences.
This type of spirituality is believing in a hierarchical structure of things or in authority.
Often, this type of spirituality is associated with religious beliefs . There are cases when not following the spiritual rules of religion may cause conflicts.
People with authoritarian spirituality can develop a form of fundamentalist religion.
The core belief behind this type of spirituality is knowledge. Intellectually spiritual people are prone to gaining knowledge of spiritual theories and analyzing the information they get their hands on.
One form of this spiritual journey is studying theology, for example. However, this type of spirituality is not solely related to studying religion. Any knowledge that helps peopleimprove their spirituality is a form of intellectual spirituality.
This is one of the most common types of spirituality. It’s because people experience spiritual peace when they serve others.
There are many ways to achieve this spirituality, but the core of it is helping others without expecting nothing in return. Doing something that will benefit someone without getting something back is a common way for people to get in touch with their spiritual selves. #4. Service Spirituality
Experiencing spiritual awakening when you are surrounded by other people explains this type of spirituality.
Being in religious groups is one way to experience this spirituality. However, this can also be achieved with any other form of a group – exercising, nature-related activities, meditation, etc.
The main idea behind this practice is the power knowledge gives to people. This practice revolves around the idea that ultimate liberation can happen with acquiring knowledge.
This is not only about learning new things about the world but most importantly, knowledge about yourselves. Self- reflection, who you are, why you do the things the way you do are the main principles of this spiritual practice.
To achieve this, people use methods like studying, meditation and contemplation.
Some of the most famous approaches are Buddhism, Jnana Yoga, Kabbalah.
This spiritual practice has liberation from your ego as its core element. This is partly because many people who consider themselves religious will use some of these methods to express their spirituality.
However, it’s not always connected with religion. People also devote themselves to a higher power source or their consciousness to experience spiritual freedom.
Some of those methods are chanting, praying, mantras, and belief to become more spiritually aware.
Meditation is one of the most common methods people are using to get better in touch with their true spirit. Alongside meditation are breathing techniques, asceticism, and teacher relationship.
The basis of this spiritual practice is calmness. People believe that whatever they accumulate through their life can be channeled through these methods. This way, dealing with everyday life challenges becomes easier because there’s a way to let go of all the negative thoughts.
Raja Yoga, Nada Yoga, and Buddhism are some examples of this spiritual practice.
Similar to the service type of spirituality, this spiritual practice is about active selflessness.
The ultimate liberation can happen when helping and expecting nothing in return.
Volunteering, helping in Red Cross, helping those in need, working with people or children with disabilities – any type of selfless act falls under this category.
