We all know that life is full of uncertainties. Our spiritual wellness has a lot to do with our strength to face the many changes that are beyond our control. There may be a lot of things we want to achieve, to maintain and possibly take back, however, in reality, there are instances wherein the outcome is out of our hands. Most people don’t realize that our spiritual well-being is highly connected with our emotional and mental capability to handle the stress brought by changes.
Being spiritually healthy can help us handle changes better and maintain balance amidst the negative effects of changes. Losing someone we love or something very valuable to us is a change that we have to face in this life. Our attachment to things and people we hold dear can be a thin line between them being the source of our happiness and them contributing to our unhappiness.
Spiritual health means being connected with ourselves and being balanced with our views of what is valuable and what’s not. Our relationships and achievements are great factors in making us happy, however, genuine happiness comes from within – by being contented and satisfied regardless of external factors. Being happy can be achieved by understanding that everything in life is temporary. Understanding our attachments can provide openness and strength to let go and handle the pains of losing people and things we hold so dear in our lives.
Spiritual health also helps us to let go not only of treasured attachments but also of negative emotions and thoughts. It gives us the strength not only to accept the natural cycle of life in general but also helps us positively live our life by letting go of grudges and frustrations. Our ability to experience new things comes from our openness to embrace change and letting go allows us to free up some space within ourselves so we can welcome these new things.
The strength of letting go and facing the changes can be achieved if we are centered and connected with ourselves. And we cannot have that connection with our soul if we are spiritually empty or exhausted. Just like our physical body, our spiritual side needs a good dose of nurturing and a spiritual retreat is the best way to rejuvenate it. Therefore, a spiritually empty individual may either be too depended on external sources of temporary happiness or have a very difficult time dealing with losses.
Having a meaningful spiritual retreat can help us reconnect with our spiritual being. Spiritual holidays are like a spa for the soul. Sedona Soul Adventures has been providing customized retreats to help people reconnect with themselves and nourish their exhausted spirituality. By being spiritually well, we can have enough strength to face life’s never ending challenges and changes. For more information on spiritual retreats, Click Here.
