You may already feel a connection to an intangible, omnipresent force (often called God or the Divine), through a regular religious practice or a general spiritual outlook. Or maybe you’re just starting to explore spirituality and are unsure of what to believe. Either way, you can live more spiritually every day by focusing inward.
Let's try something! Before you jump out of bed, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and allow any outside thoughts to move through your mind. Ask yourself what you want your day to be about. Say a little prayer even and think about this greater being. You can also access this higher energy at any time of the day by taking a quiet walk, sitting in silence for a few moments or expressing your gratitude.
This belief in something greater than yourself does not require a label. You can name it whatever feels right: God, Allah, Buddha, Krishna, Ram or even your Friends Upstairs. You can connect to this force or energy through meditation and prayer, or perhaps a connection to nature, a certain type of calming music or a creative outlet like writing or painting.
