What does it takes to unite body, mind and spirit?
Understanding this will allow us to achieve the balance that nearly everyone wishes they had in their lives.
Do you know what you need to do for yourself in order to manifest this balance?
Part of uniting these three elements is knowing what makes you tick.
What are you passionate about?
Knowing your passions will help you get in touch with your soul, which will lead to feeling more creative and truly alive. Spiritual or creative passion can help you to achieve these feelings.
Whether it’s through faith, music, or some other type of artistic expression, find what will awaken your soul in order to strike balance in your life. Here are some tips to guide you on your journey:
1. What are your goals for the future?
What would you like to ultimately achieve in your life? Is it spiritual enlightenment? Is it social status? Or, is it merely to be the best person you can be by contributing to society? What is important, though, is the process by which you attain your ultimate goal. That is what will generate your passion. You will never be an artist unless you actually pick up a paint brush. Every passion must start somewhere. By realizing your goal and recognizing the steps you must take in order to achieve that goal, you will set your passion on fire.
2. Try to focus on the positive and do not dwell on the negative.
Recall your accomplishments and good deeds. Doing this will help keep you stay positive and keep your spirits up. If you constantly remind yourself of your mistakes, you will find it harder to succeed down the road, and your mind, body and spirit will work against you. Remember, we learn from our mistakes, but if we constantly look behind us, we’ll never see what’s in front of us. And since we are what we think, let’s think positive!
3. You’ve heard of finding your “happy place,” right?
This form of meditation helps you take your mind and spirit to a comfortable place that fills you with happiness. This is an ideal thing to do when you are in the middle of a stressful work day. In fact, it provides the perfect opportunity to regroup no matter what the situation may be. So, whether you only have a second while sitting at your desk or you have 15 minutes while on lunch, the next time you need a lift, think of your happy place and let a smile drift to your face as your stress melts away.
4. Spark a change.
Plan a vacation, even if it’s just a weekend getaway. Nothing does the body, mind and spirit better than a little change of scenery. Find a place that will make you happy. Let loose and have some fun. Be adventurous and try it out. It might sound scary, but you will be surprised at how relaxed and refreshed you will be after a weekend all to yourself!
5. Try some daily affirmations.
Pick three things that you can say out loud in the mirror that will help you stay centered, positive and focused. Saying something often enough has the power to make it true for you. Remember not to dwell on the negative. Always focus on the positive and speak your affirmations in the present tense as if they have already happened. Three basic affirmations that you can work from include:
“I am safe and secure.”
“The Universe gives me everything that I need.”
“My income will continue to increase.”
So, are you ready to add more balance to your life? You’ve already taken the initiative by reading this article. Why not take it one step further and start incorporating these simple tips into your life in order to achieve big changes?
Find out what makes you tick.
Add more creativity to your life and let your passion guide you.
Your body, mind and spirit will thank you.
