We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills.

“Self-awareness is not self-centeredness, and spirituality is not narcissism. ‘Know thyself’ is not a narcissistic pursuit.” – Marianne Williamson
In previous blog posts, we examined the various dimensions of health to include: emotions, stress and raising your consciousness. Let’s now examine spirituality as a basis for awakening your authentic self. To recap, the three components of living an authentic life are health and well-being, spirituality and personal development.
Being spiritually aligned means discovering the essence of your being and the deepest values by which you live. You connect to a higher source of intelligence or power in the universe, identifying something greater than the material world. Being spiritual becomes a way of life. People often embark on a spiritual path, devoting time to principles that will bring them closer to their source. Prayer, meditation, yoga and self-awareness are a few practices undertaken to connect with the infinite intelligence.
Add to myWE:
When you are spiritually aligned, you connect to the source of intelligence which guides and creates the universe, including you. There have been numerous studies conducted about the effects of prayer on healing and recovery. Hope and belief are two components of spiritual life often mentioned in texts as the basis for healing and well-being.
In the book, Soul Medicine, co-authors, Dr. Dawson Church and Larry Dossey, state: “paying attention to your spiritual life is the most important thing you can do for your health.” They identify twelve characteristics common to people with a vibrant soul connection:
Aligning with spiritual truth means developing a profound belief and inner knowing outside of the material realm you’ve come to know and trust. You begin to develop and be guided by other faculties such as intuition and synchronicities. We are not beings limited to our five senses.
Meditation allows you to understand and commune with the deeper self, to know the essence of spirit. You discover purpose and meaning in your life through self-discovery. In order to live a truly authentic life, rich and prosperous with health and happiness, you must connect to that source which nourishes you.
Whilst the concept of spirituality may seem to confront and outside the understanding of many, the ideas and principles remain grounded in goodness. You need not become a hippie, surrender your worldly possessions or live in a commune in order to realise a spiritual life. Some of the world’s wealthiest people are spiritually aligned. They understand that for them to be where they are in their lives, some force beyond their knowledge had to be guiding them.
This knowledge brings peace and contentment to our lives. When we stop resisting the energy of life, we come from a place of allowing that which chooses to come forth into our lives. We are open to receive in each moment and surrender to it.
Spirituality allows us to have a deeper understanding of our place in this purposeful universe. We are at peace within ourselves, creating a safe house for the source to commune with us. In doing so, we give up needing to strive and become. The more we let go of, the more flows into our life.
