Even as a child, I was innately aware of a built-in intuition, which became my ‘eyes and ears’ and ‘spiritual awareness,’ but because I struggled emotionally, it never presented itself in those times, but in my more lucid moments it was there.
The older I got and the more I understood my experiences, the more I was able to control how I felt, then every now and again that part of me would peep out. Spiritual growth is a process of inner awakening, where we start to become aware of our ‘inner-self.’
Being aware of our inner self, may help us to develop a higher awareness, so that we are able to tap into our unconscious thinking. It enables us to go beyond what’s in our conscious thoughts, to help us bring understanding on past experiences, who we are and what makes us, us.
We can all have the ability, but usually that part of who we are, is tucked away behind the ego-personality. Being spiritual allows us to instinctively listen to our inner thoughts, so that we are continually tuned in to them.
Having spiritual beliefs can help us become better, more compassionate people. It may also allow us to live a more peaceful and tranquil life. Spirituality helps us take away fear, anxiety and stress. It can also help us to compose ourselves, so that we are able to remain calm under pressure, with whatever we have to deal with.
