In today’s society there are so many misconceptions about what spirituality is. Many view spiritual people as those crystal wearing hippies. Others think that being spiritual runs counter to their religious beliefs. And then there are people that have become so entrenched in their egos that they don’t even know that they have a spirit.
For starters, the Oxford American Dictionary defines Spirit as the part of the person that consists of their character and feelings rather than their body, often believed to survive after their body is dead. Spirituality is defined as relating to the human spirit as opposed to material or physical things. I believe spirituality is being able to go within to seek the truth about who you are.
In doing so, I have found that there are certain qualities that are inherent in an individual that becomes enlightened about their spirit. Simplistically, it is a person that on the outside appears to have it all. Imagine for a moment someone you know that has loving relationships, is in excellent health, prosperity and abundance are present in their life, they have a career that inspires them, giving back is important to them, they understand the inter-connection of life and they honor that bond, and in general their entire life is seemingly filled with magical moments. People like this are living a life that represents the best version of them. We all know at least one person like this. And if you don’t, I can attest that these people do indeed exist and are thriving.
Seems too good to be true doesn’t it? The good news is that each and every one of us can have a life like this. It is a matter of finding out what your spirit is telling you to do and adjusting your life and circumstances so that you can follow the guidance. Each of us has an inner light that can transform life so that we are allowing our own soul’s highest vision to become a reality.
There are many ways to accomplish this, but to start you must bring your life back into balance. Finding the perfect balance of body, mind, and soul will assist you in uncovering your life’s purpose. This brings your will in line with God’s will, thus allowing miracles to happen. This journey can be difficult, depending upon what you have to unravel in your life. The good news is that it can be done and you control the process. In fact, it is your Divine responsibility to cleanse and heal your body, open your mind to a higher consciousness, and fill your heart with loving intentions.
I know this must seem like a lot of work and work doesn’t usually equate to being very sexy. When a person begins to unveil the essence of their spirit they start embarking on a journey of discovering their inner self and who they truly are; sans material goods that represent a false identity. This helps one align to your own unique purpose and mission in life. There is truly nothing sexier than living everyday with a passion and joy in your heart, knowing that you are following your life’s purpose and doing exactly what you were meant to do. In doing this, you are showered with peace in your heart no matter what life throws your way. This helps us to start understanding that we are all interconnected and here to learn and help each other in some way. Spiritual and sexy start coming together when one allows their spirit to light the way. They then must have the strength and faith to follow this guidance, thus knowing that they are protected in this process.
Let us make no mistake that it is not sexy when a person is cut off from spirit. This is the person you know that is out of balance, life is a string of struggles, they have much unhappiness, are living with the thought forms of “lack-of”, living in darkness, addictions, feelings of being run down, feeling like they have nothing left to give, no joy in life, abuse, victimization, and seemingly no positive options. It is important to remember that life is a classroom and you are the student. You have two options open and available to you. You can relish in the beauty of the lessons and learn them with ease and joy OR you can dread going to school each day and close your mind to anything new being taught. You decide which type of student you are going to be.
I say it is time to wake up and try something new. You have the power to transform yourself into a sexy spiritual person, just like I have. My life was once the twisting tale of living out of balance, but no longer. I knew that that life was dragging me by my Jimmy Choos and I exited that classroom as soon as my heals broke off.
Let me point out, that this is not about physical appearance, but what you look like inside. Tapping into this inner beauty gives you the power to change your life for the better and that of every person you encounter. By finding your spirit you begin the process of polishing the diamond that lies within, so that all may see how brilliantly you shine.
