Here at Mountainlife, we love nothing more than sharing our wild and natural health products with you and revealing the amazing ways you can benefit from them. But we're more than just our products. We don't want our blog to become a selling space but rather a place to share our thoughts, beliefs and knowledge with like-minded people. Our founder, Thomas' brain, is buzzing with ideas, and we hope, through our blog, we can build a deeper, more authentic connection with readers.
And what better place to start than with the topic of spirituality?
So you've come here looking to learn the basics of spirituality? In that case, there is already a part of you considering the idea of something beyond your human existence. Spirituality recognises that we're more than our brains and bodies. It questions whether there's more to what we've learnt of our existence and what we've allowed our senses to tell us.
For many, spirituality gives their lives a sense of meaning and coherence - purpose and direction. Your beliefs shape how you think about your life choices and what happens after death. Some people believe in a higher power like God, and for others, it's the universe. There's no right or wrong answer.
Spirituality is often linked with meditating, mindfulness, saying affirmations and reading material related to spirituality. Ultimately, it's about bettering the self and becoming more aware.
Spirituality is a very personal thing, and people might seek a spiritual awakening for various reasons. Still, generally speaking, it comes from a place of dissatisfaction with one's life.
For many, spirituality makes them feel part of something, gives their life significance and helps them be more at peace with the world. Others enjoy the feelings of love, connection, community and completeness that comes with spirituality. But the reason we think spirituality is important is that it encourages curiosity and reflection. Spirituality pushes people to grow both intellectually and emotionally.
People would have you believe that something big needs to happen for you to have a spiritual awakening. A trip to an exotic destination, a life-changing event, or even a relationship break up. But the truth is, spiritual awakening doesn't require a dramatic event. You can start your spiritual journey at any time for any number of reasons.
Get rid of anything you no longer need. We're not talking about physical possessions. Rather anything in your mind that serves as a distraction to your life. Allow your thoughts to pass through your mind without judgement. Sit in silence. Meditate. Whatever works to relax you and provide the opportunity for you to build a stronger connection with your intuition.
We all have beliefs, but what are yours? Be conscious of them and ask yourself whether your views are aiding your spiritual growth or restricting it? To experience a spiritual awakening, you may find that you need to let go of life-limiting beliefs that you've always held.
Once you've let go of any beliefs that were holding you back, your mind is ready to discover new ideas and possibilities. Read books and blogs to expand your knowledge. Don't be afraid to have deeper conversations with people from all walks of life. Dare yourself to learn something new and genuinely awaken your mind.
Many of us are guilty of spending far too long stuck indoors behind a screen. Whether working from home has taken over your life or you're forever scrolling on social media, staying indoors damages the connection you have with yourself and the world around you.
The answer? Go outside! Enjoy a peaceful walk without distractions from your phone or other people. Breathe in the fresh air. Appreciate your surroundings. Feel the energy and magic that comes from simply connecting with nature.
Spirituality is all about connecting to yourself and your higher power. And you can't do that without taking care of yourself. Keeping your mind and body clean and clear keeps the energy flowing and provides the opportunity for spiritual growth and awakening.
Eat natural, unprocessed foods and move your body in whatever way feels good! If you need a boost, seek out natural health supplements, such as our Siberian Wild Harvested Shilajit and our collection of Di Tao mushrooms.
While these tips will undoubtedly help you open up your mind, you can't force spiritual enlightenment. Please don't get too caught up in what your spiritual awakening looks like or how you will achieve it.
It's also worth noting that it's not necessarily a one-time occurrence. You will continue to develop your spirituality more and more as you grow, age and enjoy a new sense of awareness.
We all lead entirely different lives and have different beliefs, so your spiritual journey may look unrecognisable to someone else's, and that's perfectly okay. The beauty of spirituality is there are no rules or boundaries. You are permitting yourself to be free, be curious and be open and accepting of all possibilities.
And we'll end with these wise words by French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin...
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience."
