Often, it is quoted by the wise that our thoughts are so powerful that if we could ever know their impact on our lives, we would never go a day without thinking positive spiritual thoughts. Humans are blessed to have the ability to think which distinguishes us, and thus it would be practically sound to use our heads a little more than just hat racks. This thinking ability further connects with the heart and souls as a gift from God so that we live a balanced life, conquering this world on our own.
This world has been spread out as a playground for the man on whom he must display his best moves to give his best shots keeping the worldly matters, and his souls spiritually connect to affirm his grip on the course of life. Spirituality begins at heart, travels through one’s thoughts and ends right at the divine peace. However, it will not be a one-time effort as the daily practice of spirituality gives you the strength to keep going the positive way. The act of practicing spirituality every day revolves around the thought process where you drift away from the world around you, pick the positivity you see to accompany you when you wander in your world. ‘Thinking with God’s wisdom’ as spirituality is often defined can sneak into your thinking lifestyle whenever and wherever you let it. Following are a few spiritual thoughts for you to incorporate spiritual insights in your life.
1) Adapt to New Ways
Thinking about new things or changing your pattern of thoughts every now then directly affects your brain by creating new neurons and changing your brain’s wiring. Instead of getting too consumed in the way your thoughts usually are, opt for novelty about the things you think. Renewal plays a significant role in spiritual healing.
2) Acknowledge God’s Love
God has a never ending circle of giving to His creations so before you develop negative perspectives to things around you. Remind yourself that the entire universe is interdependent on the eternal creator. Therefore, one cannot live despite things which are based on loving themselves. Eventually, this will become the center of your thinking cycle and your brain will grow more healthily.
3) Recognize Immorality as the Disruption
Given that our lives proceeding to a destiny and every incident which happens in our everyday lives brings us closer to it, we often overlook the need for going with the flow. Looking for loop holes to win over others usually gets us to committing unethical things which may affect someone or even ourselves adversely. This will disrupt the entire journey, thus avoiding immoral deeds must be acknowledged as a de tracker.
4) Humility is Empowering
Victories of life give us that extra self-admiration misleading us to being arrogant. Spiritual thoughts, however, can be relied on to keep self-destructive habits out of the way. Such spiritual thoughts eliminate the belief that our abilities will always prove us victorious which further increases our dependence on the victory for survival.
5) Think in a Prayerful Way
Every day we counter setbacks and happy moments, they make us draw irrational conclusions depending on our emotional state of mind. Either we get too overwhelmed or dwell in sorrow. But thinking prayerfully simply means that we seek refuge in the spiritual powers present around us so that we eliminate the factors and people affecting the incidents we encounter. This way, spiritual thoughts keep us from drowning in anxiety just because over thinking is easier than being calm and hopeful even during the test of times.
6) Pause and Reflect
Stepping back from the crushing daily routine is essential for a broader perspective on life. For similar reasons people fly off for vacations to have their self-time but even if leaving your surroundings is not possible, just drop your chores for some time and spend time with yourself. Is it not necessary to draw a successful outcome each time you have this ‘thinking retreat,’ rather being able to reflect is a success in itself. Spiritual thoughts will enhance your ability to reflect as you keep on practicing.
7) Reaffirm Yourself
We often visualize our failures instead of success in an attempt to lower our expectations. But it is time to correct the thinking mechanism we have gotten used to; spiritual thinking teaches us how to reassure ourselves that we are getting there by visualizing the journey to our dreams. If you are an aspiring film maker, think about the premier and flashing paparazzi and then imagine hours of hard work you have to put in to touch the stars. This way you will reaffirm your commitment and eagerness to get to the destiny by sneaking into your spiritual thoughts.
8) Discipline Your Thoughts
With every passing day, you will realize that you have grown accustomed to the spiritual way of thinking. We think for the most of our day anyway, but now you will lead your thoughts in the right direction. Spiritual thoughts are those meetings you do not want to miss at any cost, therefore take time out of your busy life even if it is a few minutes because what you get to think in a spiritual state multiplies the effective output for you. It will construct your chain of spiritual thoughts as a positive boundary around you to prosper in it even during the test of times.
Now that we have gotten familiar to how we can shape our spiritual thoughts, we are now ready to embrace the greater approach on life. Reality definitely is subjective, but we do have a way to command reality to some extent if we get our grip on our spiritual thoughts, starting from the grass root level.
