Spirituality – how do you care about it?
Since you already know who you are and what spirituality is you probably wonder how to take care about it. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as taking care of your body. There is no mask or cream you could put on your soul, it needs a little bit more effort, but it isn’t complicated either. How do you care, so?
Spiritual awaking happens usually during some dramatic life events, hard experiences or it could be a result of your growing process as you know from previous posts. It doesn’t have to be always hard. You don’t have to go to Peru or India looking for magical herbs or some mystery practices. You can awake daily through your everyday life, at your home.

Expand your mind.
Explore new ideas, outside your comfort zone. Go to a gig of a band you don’t know only because its name sounds cool. Go to the theatre to see a play you never thought about before. Do it by yourself. Listen to your intuition, not your friend or partner’s taste. Try to go on your own, without a company. It could be strange the first time, but you will see that

Learn to let go.
Don’t attach yourself to one idea, belief, thought, thing or feeling. Let go means let it be.
Don’t nurture negative emotions, even if you think it is not possible. Let them go. Don’t live in the past. Let it go. Don’t live in the future. Focus on now and here.
Find a spiritual practice and technique and stick to it.
