Firstly: What Is Spiritual Wellness?

When you are spiritually well, you are in a state of being in which you find real, deep meaning in your life and existence on this planet. You are able to interpret your spiritual needs and find the most productive and fulfilling ways to fulfill them. Though spirituality does not require that you attend church or are part of any specific denomination, it does require that you accept the existence of the spiritual realm (in whatever way that makes sense to you) and a higher power (whatever you believe this to be) and can plug into that “something bigger” that brings meaning to your life.

How Do I Achieve Spiritual Wellness?

There are many, many ways to achieve a state of spiritual wellness, and they will vary from person to person and belief to belief. We do have some basic guidelines that might help you out if you’re struggling a bit:

 

  1. Find and Connect With Your Faith Community. Now remember, this doesn't have to mean church if you don't want it to! Being around and connecting with people who feel the same way you do about spirituality can strengthen your beliefs and understanding.
  2. Meditate. Many people are still under the impression that you may only practice meditation if you follow certain beliefs, but this is not true! Meditation is a mindful practice that gives you quiet space and time to connect with yourself and disconnect from all the craziness in the world around you.
  3. Spend time in nature. Getting away from daily life and into nature, which is really a human being’s natural habitat, can ease your stress and uncloud your mind, which gives you better access to a spiritual connection.
  4. Express gratitude every day. Nothing is more grounding and humbling than gratitude! If you find a gratitude practice, be it a journal or sharing your gratitude on social media, you can reflect on the positives in your life even when you’re having a hard time. This perspective enables you to see everything clearly and without self-pity.

 

How Is Spiritual Wellness Key to Creativity?

Your creative energy comes from a place deep within you, somewhere that is innate to your being. Yes, you can train yourself and hone your creative gifts, but you cannot alter the essential creativity that lives in all of us. Sometimes, like a blue sky clouded over by a storm rolling in, our creativity is clouded by things that bother us or make us sad or angry. If we are on a path to spiritual wellness, we are on a path to understanding our feelings and triggers and what lies behind them. With understanding, we can deal with spiritual or emotional issues that might drain our creative energy and re-awaken creativity that may be lying dormant. Some people say that creatives who suffer create their best work during those times, but we believe that wellness and happiness are essential to the creative process. When your spiritual health is on track, so is your path to understanding and discovering your creativity.
