Most of us have had physical, mental, or emotional drain over the last 3 years. With the uncertainties in life increasing post pandemic, many of us are contemplating on real meaning of life.

While it is difficult to get away from material life, once can surely take some effort towards improving one’s spiritual grounding

Why Spiritual Grounding?

Focusing oneself towards increasing one’s spiritual grounding helps in taking stalk of things in a more realistic manner. Sometimes with the flow of emotions at its peak and the environment around us as hostile as possible, one losses the ability to think in a rational manner and reacts in an extreme way. This is where spiritual grounding comes into picture. It helps one to pause and take stalk of things and enables a person not to react but to respond in the best possible manner

How Can one become more Spiritually aware in 2023?

Practice mindfulness

It all starts with building mindfulness. Mindfulness give immense power so that one can pause and assess the situation to best of his/her abilities. Mindfulness can be built over a period of time by practicing different type of meditation techniques that are gaining popularity around the world. Many Mobile applications enable structured learning of mindfulness so that the learner can evaluate his/her progress.

Being present in the moment and aware of your thoughts and actions can help you respond to others with kindness and empathy

Show gratitude

Another wonderful quality that one should learn is the quality of Gratitude. Sometimes we are driven so much to want more in life that we lose sight of things that already exists. Gratitude is one such attribute which when developed enables one to be grateful of things around before wanting to ask for more.

Expressing appreciation and thanking others for their actions or efforts can help foster a sense of connection and positivity.

Practice Empathy

One way of practicing empathy is by being a good listener. Active listening involves paying attention to what others are saying and trying to understand their perspective. This eventually can help one show kindness and support to those around you.

This can be as simple as holding the door open for someone or offering a compliment or just giving a smile. Make a conscious effort to be kind in your daily interactions with others. This can help you stay focused on your goal of being more kind and allow you to eventually make it a habit

Remember, being more Spiritually aware and awakened is a journey and it’s okay to make mistakes along the way. The important thing is to keep striving to be on the path.
