I have felt deeply in touch with a higher power over the last few years and its incredibly comforting.
But there’s something happening on social media where its almost like you have to be part of a clique to be spiritual.
A clique where if you’re not meditating regularly, doing yoga daily, and taking yourself off on retreats then you’re not doing it right.
Let me tell you something. I meditate and do yoga when I can. I practice and swear by the Wim Hoff Method. I’ve had some experiences where I have transcended astral planes and I’ve had somewhere it’s been all I could do to just focus on my breath.
But do you know the most spiritual experience I had in the last year? I was on the beach in Crete with my daughters. The sun was beaming down on us, the waves were crashing on the shore and my beautiful girls were running around dancing in and out of the waves.
In that moment I saw and felt God. The Goddess. Gaia. Call it whatever you like. Pure Universal Energy in all its glory.
I felt it in the sunshine. I saw it in my children. I felt it from the sea. I felt it in me and saw it in every beautiful soul on that beach and it was bliss.
And it wasn’t yoga or meditating, or breathwork… It was just an overwhelming feeling of immense gratitude and pure love.
And that’s what spirituality is to me. And that’s what I need to remind myself of.
It doesn’t have to be an online clique of bendy girls in Bali drinking fresh from the coconut (may or may not be being said with a hint of jealousy 😬)….
……. It can be just taking a moment to feel truly, truly grateful 🙏❤️
