How To Make My Spiritual Life Journey Fulfilling

By Ericka Marsh

A strong spiritual life is very fulfilling. It takes time and effort to realize this strength. The first step is a declaration that, I want to take charge of my spiritual life journey. Attaining this strength will require you to undertake several things.

Identify your foundation- this means making a decision to follow a particular spirituality. The spirituality or principles in many cases are based on a religious belief. Further, within different religions, there are opportunities to adapt a particular lifestyle. The options include meditative, charity, evangelical, intellectual, etc. The principles of the religious or spiritual body you join will guide you through the journey.

Be a member of a community- participating in communities is encouraging and reinforces your belief. The experiences shared on daily life will strengthen you in spirit, personal and social life. It also is a chance to learn from those who understand the spirituality better and also share your understanding or knowledge with those who join behind you.

Mentor- having a mentor in matters of faith provides an upper hand since most of them have gone through the experience of faith. Their experience and understanding of the journey of faith will strengthen your pursuit of a fulfilling life. They help you during major decision making intervals and will redirect you in case you get lost. Find a person who encourages you to be better and aim higher spiritually.

Read a lot- reading strengthens your understanding of the things you believe in. There are books written by the founders of your community or religious group. They provide a basic understanding of the expectations of anyone adhering to that religion. Further, there are recent books that help you tackle emerging issues. Read as many of these books as possible. The internet also contains a lot of literature. Be diligent to read as much as possible.

Listen- spiritual leaders and intellectuals provide insightful lectures and audios on different issues. These resources are available on radio, TV, internet as well as on DVDs and other storage devices. Take time to listen to the lectures and take notes to be used in changing your destiny. Be keen to listen to grounded speakers to avoid confusion.

Mediating- a person who mediates understands his surrounding and belief better. Having quiet moments makes reflection deeper and easier. With the use of mediation guides like music or a directed audio, you can delve into a lot of personal issues and enhance your experience in faith.

Charity work- this is voluntary work aimed at assisting the needy in your community. Participating in such endeavors keeps you in touch with your immediate community. It also helps you appreciate the things you already have and therefore be grateful.

Attend pilgrimages- living in spirit introduces you to a lot of people and places. Making a journey to a holy site or attending an event by a spiritual leader enhances your spirit. It provides a practical view of the spiritual reality. It changes what you have always read and heard into real things. A pilgrimage will transform your belief.
