Many people have their own definition of what spirituality is. I scoured the internet to find a definition that resonated with me.
“Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life.” For me, that has got to be the best description of spirituality.
I was talking to someone several years ago before my spiritual journey began, and she said “OH I sense that you are really spiritual.” I replied with “oh yes, I go to church consistently.” She laughed and said that is not what she meant nor is it what she sensed. While that was not the beginning of my spiritual journey, it was certainly the beginning of my understanding of the meaning.
When people say they are spiritual, others look at them like their lives are all gravy. Like all that spiritual people do is light candles, meditate and do yoga. The reality of a spiritual journey is FAR from that. I mean there are some yoga days, meditation and Saging going on but for the most part, being spiritual is experiencing life from a holistic perspective and learning how to react and respond to all that life has to offer.
As I journeyed down my spiritual path, I experienced a LOT of lessons. Some were tough and painful while others were quick and painless. Some lessons repeated themselves. I viewed everything and everyone from a different perspective. The real reality of spirituality is that it looks different for everyone. Everyone’s experiences and journeys are different. My whole reality of the world had changed. How I watched TV and movies changed. I would go to the movies with someone and after say “OMG did you see how the main character did X,Y, and Z? And the person would look at me and say NO, and ask how did I arrive at that? LOL
I became an ordained minister in September of 2014 and added that title to the NUBODI business. I felt like people thought I was a preacher or some scripture quoting person from how people responded to what they saw. For me, I didn’t feel like the title of ordained minister reflected who I was as a person or how I wanted to interact with clients. I researched spirituality and reviewed my experiences to later change the title from Ordained Minister to Spiritual Advisor. That title fit me more with who I was becoming and the journey I had been on. Many people responded to that title more positively than the latter.
For me, to be spiritual is to be in tune with self, with spirit and to strengthened my relationship with my spirit. I have developed programs to coach people on beginning their spiritual journey as well as constructed unique ways to counsel individuals through spiritual direction. There are many ways to a spiritual journey. Let NUBODI assist you with yours.
