Can You Make A Spiritual Growth Assessment?

A Guide to Personal Spiritual Growth

If you’re looking for change in your life, a way to add peace and blessing, there are a few steps you can take to obtain spiritual growth. To grow spiritually does not mean by the spirit (or ) alone.

It’s the concentration of the entire being. It’s both a person’s outer and as well as the way he or she affects other people. The outer life is a manifestation of the growth that takes place on the inside.

When a person grows spiritually on the inside, he becomes more self-confident, kinder – more positive and more generous in the desire to help others. This outer manifestation then attracts back blessings or good things in life.

The first step in this growth type occurs when the attitude is changed. If a person’s attitude is to look out for number one, to be ungrateful or have a strong self-focus, begrudging what he doesn’t have (rather than focusing on the good he does have), then good is often repelled by that.

Take a few minutes out of every day and engage in the act of meditating or praying and about what’s good in your life. Some call this having an ‘attitude of gratitude.’ Some find it helpful to keep a journal of all of the things in a day to be thankful for.

Step two for spiritual growth is to develop a sense of personal introspection. It’s a time of examining what you feel and think. Some people refer to this as self-examination. The purpose for this exercise is to focus on your thoughts and actions and see where changes need to be made.

For some people, this step can be emotionally painful if there are situations in the past that have wounded them and need to be put down. Dragging around emotionally baggage only wearies you. Deal with whatever has slowed you down spiritually, release it and walk in freedom.

Step three is to stop running from hard situations. Whatever is in your life right now that’s causing you to feel a disconnect spiritually, deal with it. It won’t get better until you do.

This might mean letting yourself deal with emotions (like grief or ) that you’ve been pushing down for awhile. Holding onto negative emotions can block your inner calm and stop you from achieving a spiritual peace. The energy and the power are within reach if you want it.

Guided Meditation for Spiritual Growth

Last but not least, spiritual growth is a step of maturity. It’s getting healing for your spirit – it’s bringing together again all of the pieces of you that were lost. Whether a difficult childhood took them, a heartbreaking relationship or stress overload doesn’t matter. You can be whole again. It’s within your reach.

In doing Spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, and the like, we gain spiritual growth, or at least we hope to grow, in the sense of what we call the spiritual. While it is very difficult to comprehend the meaning of what spirituality or the spiritual experience is, it is also very easy to misrepresent it, miscalculate it, and misjudge one’s own experiences even when doing it.

Often time spiritual seekers find themselves in a quandary even with all their years of yoga and meditation practice because of an inability on their part to judge their personal experiences from a proper perspective. Spiritual experience, does not drop from the . It does not come from somewhere else.

Your spiritual growth comes from within.
