Spiritual Counseling – Why It’s Vital Today
Spiritual Counseling – why it’s vital today. Spirituality is a very broad concept. It is a belief in something beyond self. It can involve religious beliefs and traditions that are centered around a power greater than ourselves. It’s a belief that is personal and a connection to the world, nature and the universe.
When many hear the word spiritual they get this belief that it’s either Christian based or on the other end of the spectrum with mystical origins and weird witchcraft. This is far from the truth. Spiritual simply means a connection to your higher awareness where you have a connection to your own personal understanding of what it means to be more than living in this physical time space reality.
Spirituality offers us a view of the world that there is a force or energy more in our lives. Something beyond just what we are experiencing on this physical plane..
Spirituality suggests there is a force much larger and greater than ourself. It connects and runs through all of us. It seeks to uncover your meaning in life and the connection to the divine. This divinity is in all of us. We are all mirrors looking back at each other there’s no separation between another person and ourselves.
Spirituality is a sense of feeling comfort and a release from day to day stress. Many studies have shown that when someone has a spiritual connection their mental health improves as well as their self awareness.

Spiritual Counseling – Why It’s Vital Today
Why do we need spiritually counseling or connection to others that are like minded? We are a society that has become consumed with obtaining material possessions. We want more, bigger, faster, etc. we compare ourselves to others and get our sense of worth from trying to get other to like and approve of us.
What a waste of time. How do you know if anyone really approves of you? Because they said so? Why do you need it to feel good about yourself? Maybe you lacked it from your childhood. You have a longing for others to approve of you.
This never ending cycle always will leave you feeling empty, ungrounded and frustrated. The only source of wholeness and completion is the one we give to ourselves. A deep knowing that you have always been complete and whole. The feeling that you are not is nothing more than your conditioning and programming from childhood.
