We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Your spiritual health and healing depend on how you feel about yourself as well as your sense of connection with something beyond yourself.
You can build and access your spirituality in many ways — through meditation, religion, music, art, literature, nature and through your connection with your loved ones and other people in the community.
You can achieve the highest level of personal success, happiness and well being through integration of your spiritual growth with intellectual, emotional and physical development. It is possible to achieve personal success without developing your spirituality, but it would be difficult to be truly happy.

Your spirituality can connect you to what is good about yourself — it can connect you to the very best part of yourself. It can help you rise above harmful biases, selfish concerns and petty annoyances in your life. It can help you transcend disturbing and toxic forces in your life. It can help you prevent and solve problems. It can help enhance your appreciation of yourself, your life and your loved ones.
Your spirituality is one of the most powerful ways you can achieve personal success and true happiness. It has the potential of transforming and enriching not only the way you live, but the entire way that members of your family and your community interact and live together.
Spiritual Practices and Exercises That Can Boost Your Spiritual Health and Healing
Your spiritual nature can be subtle and difficult to fully experience. It can be buried deep down inside your heart and soul that you can barely feel it. Overloading your mind and body with experiences and sensations tend to drown it out.
Spiritual practices and exercises can help you learn to get in touch with your spiritual nature. You can integrate mind, body and spirit, family and career, caring for yourself and others. You can learn to fully experience the depth of beauty, joy and love that surround you.
You can boost your spiritual health and healing by developing rituals or habits that can help you make a deeper connection with yourself, your life and other people in your life.
Your spiritual practices and exercises can provide you with spiritual healing and power. It can help you put all of your difficulties and heartaches in perspective. It can open up possibilities of dealing with things that are beyond your control. It can help you find answers to important questions in your life — the meaning of your life and your sense of purpose.
Your spirituality may not reveal the answers to your questions instantly. Instead, they may unfold slowly, in a subtle and step-by-step process as you’re feeling, seeing and hearing things more clearly. Suddenly, you realize that the way you perceive your life has changed dramatically. You discover new insights and inspirations… you feel a sense of joy, beauty and love in everything you do and see… you find serenity, peace and contentment.
