What About Spirituality and Spiritual Connections?
There are moments if life when a human being wonders if there is something beyond this physic life/existence. All human beings ask themselves this type of questions, sooner or later. But the vast majority doesn’t care too much about it.
There are also many ways to answer these questions. Some take the scientific approach, others religion, others philosophy, etc.
Spirituality has to do with what we are, where we come from, and where we are going to as living beings.
Consider that science says, EVERYTHING in the Universe IS basically ENERGY.
The word Universe comes from the Latin ūnus (“one”) and versus (“turned”), hence literally “turned into one.” Then all this means that living beings, and also rocks, water, trees, stars, etc., are a part of a “unique” body of Energy, substance, or the word you prefer.
What is Your Spiritual Connection?
Then, we are all connected. As simple as that.
Many people want to experiment, to feel some kind of spiritual connection – or at least to know if they have some kind of spiritual connection in their life. This is because it’s natural for us as intelligent beings to have these questions.
Let’s take a deeper insight about this.
General Signs of a Spiritual Connection
Basically, we can speak about three types of spiritual connections:
A connection with another human being. A connection with an element of natureA connection with a way of life
It’s important to note that to have a spiritual connection is not a goal in itself. It’s more like a tool or a means.
When you connect to someone or something in a spiritual manner, the reason behind it is to learn and grow.
So, how do you know you are connected to someone or something? What are the signs?
Let’s take a look at the main signs you need to pay attention in order to know this:
You might feel you have known or been related to that person or situation (an activity) for a long time.
Do You Feel Comfortable?
You feel good. It doesn’t matter you didn’t feel this way at the beginning; it can happen over time.
Sharing of Values
You agree with the principles on which something or the way of thinking of someone is based.
Will You Experience Personal Growth In Your Spirituality?
With no doubt, you feel you’re learning new things that help you mature and to be a better person, in harmony with life.
Spiritual Connection with another person
There are basically three types of spiritual connections with persons.
Are They With a Soul Mate?
They are souls we have had some time of relation in other lives, and we continually found ourselves to help each other. A relation of this type can be romantic, friendly or parental.
With a Karmic Soul
This type of relations is usually more intense than soul mates. This is because they come to our life to help us heal old wounds. This type of relations tends to be obscure, and they’ll be with you until you have growth enough to end the relation.
With your Twin Flame
The must powerful spiritual connection you can have, and it can’t be break. Your Twin Flame appears in the exact moment when your own soul was created. It’s the final connection you will have in your life, and it’s essential to your final spiritual goal.
When we are connected spiritually to another individual, we can experiment in ourselves the aforementioned signs in some degree. But bear in mind these signs won’t be always “all perfect.”
This means you don’t have to expect that you’ll be always happy with your “connection”; part of life growing is to suffer to be able to learn. This is something necessary sometimes, but it’s not always the case for all people.
Sometimes when you find someone you’re connected with, you will know it immediately. You feel something special, and this feeling is usually within the context of our well established signs.
Just remember something, the degree of happiness you have in a spiritual based relation, will depend on the type of that relation. And in some cases, it could be really tumultuous.
Spiritual Connection with an Element of Nature
Nature is essential to our physical survival, but it’s also an essential part of our spiritual growth.
The ancient Celts believed that all the elements of nature (trees, rocks, animals) had a personality or spirit within. They adored nature. They were connected to nature.
Sometimes a person needs to learn something for their personal growth that only nature can teach. It might be that person has some kind of karmic debt with nature, and he/she needs to pay in their current life.
Have you seen “Free Willy”, “White Fang”? Do you think a human being can have some kind of spiritual connection with an animal? According to our list of signs or principles to detect a spiritual connection, the answer is yes.
There are many people that prefer to live in the countryside instead of the city. If you ask them why they have that preference, usually they will tell you that they feel a special connection with nature. This is true.
These people need to learn something or do something related to nature that even any human cannot teach them.
The sensations that usually are described related to this type of spiritual connections, is that they’re feeling part of Mother Earth, and be in peace while contemplating nature.
Spiritual Connection with a Way of Life
Maybe many people aren’t aware of this type of spiritual connection. This is usually described with other words, but from other point of view, it’s also a connection anybody can experiment.
Sometimes people say they have a mission in life. This is true in many cases.
These people feel they need to do something that is inevitable. Some feel a strong impulse to be artists, scientists, doctors or to change the world…
The reality in these cases is, they can’t be connected to something that is abstract. Any kind of art or science in the human world cannot exist without humans.
So, what you can really connect to, is the group of people conforming and performing an activity in a specific space-time.
Take the example of famous Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves. He is a successful film professional, but he has suffered very hard moments in life. This well balanced man once said, he didn’t leave his job as an actor because it is the only good thing that has kept him sober and fighting.
This person has learned something from his work environment, and he also has taught something to his numerous fans around the world. That is to be spiritually connected to a group/activity; it’s about growing spiritually and promote spiritual growth.
Bonus: How to improve your Spiritual Connection
Sometimes we want to be in harmony with our environment and the people we love, but the problems we face daily don’t let us.
We feel stress, frustration, void… It’s not something we want in our life, but it’s part of it.
In order to recover your balance and good connection with your environment, try to follow the steps below:
Try To Get Relaxed
To be stressed means to be out of balance in body and mind. You need to free that tension in order to focus your attention in what you really want: your spiritual connection. Try to get relaxed through a physical or meditative practice.
Try to understand what’s the problem
You must think carefully about what circumstance is causing you to be unbalanced.
Once you find it, think if there is a need for controlling something or to change something.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to accept things the way they are. Or you can also try negotiating a good 50:50 deal to recover peace.
Train to develop your internal power
Remember you have the capacity to control your mind, your emotions. Have you ever heard about Emotional intelligence?
Think the most powerful tool you can ever have, is your mind; there is always a solution for any type of problem that can arise along your way. Don’t give problems more power that they really have.
Final words About Spirituality
Finding a Spiritual Connection is something all we need as human beings to advance in our way of life.
As we’re all connected as part of a whole, we depend on each other for the achievement of our spiritual objective in this life.
Remember something: Love is always the key that opens the door to spirituality. When you love enough, you are able to connect easier with that soul that came to this world to help in your spiritual growth.
That is because love is the force, the law that connects all things – because we are all part of the same being. You can only connect to someone or something you can love. And only what loves you, can be connected to you.
You can be sure you’ll find what you’re looking for if you want and love enough for it.
