Soul family, you are going to feel like you were in a living room getting to listen in on a delicious conversation all about practical spirituality, how to tap into your soul and experience the full array of human emotions and experiences. I was joined by three new kindred sisters talking all about wanting to bridge the world of spirituality, mental health, and human consciousness. Get ready for an insightful convo!
A Grounded View of Spirituality
I talked with Alissa Schwartz, Rhea Spina, and Anna Miranda about the importance of making spirituality practical. Anna Miranda, a renowned psychic medium, shared the practices that help her stay grounded and spiritually connected, which are traditional mindfulness practices and prayer. She sees prayer as the biggest form of connection in action and takes time every morning to talk to her soul and a Higher Power. Prayer can be whatever you want it or make it to be. Spirituality should be an active part of our lives and something we participate in small ways regularly, and prayer is just one way to easily add it into your life.
The Powerful Lessons from Addiction
Alissa Schwartz had a beautiful take on defining addicts, which was that “addicts are frustrated mystics looking for spirit in the wrong places.” In other words, addicts are often some of the most highly sensitive and spiritually connected individuals who are cut off from that connection due to blocking it with whatever addiction is prevalent. As was shared in this conversation, Anna also shared how addiction was the vehicle for her soul’s purpose. Rhea explained that the real healing in addiction (or from any past trauma) comes when you can love the parts of yourself you wish you could change. It’s about forgiving all of yourself first. Forgiveness is an empowering aspect of soulful living.
How To Decipher Your Intuition
The cornerstone of an intuitive knowing, download, or inner voice is that it will always be a subtle and calm voice that feels like pure truth. You will typically notice it in your body first. Intuition grows and is nurtured in stillness. Taking time for mindfulness practices and meditation will help cultivate fertile ground for you to hear, feel and decipher your intuition. Growing your intuition through meditation is a perfect means to practical spirituality and relaxing into soulful living. It covers so many bases, and the benefits are only positive.
Raising The Vibe
This point really stuck out to me; we all thrive when we’re connected. It’s time to connect more not only to ourselves but also to one another. Spiritually Psyched has launched their podcast, Spiritually Psyched, to help raise the vibration of the planet, connect more hearts and create space for others to feel safe, authentic, comfortable, and free. Alissa ended us on a beautiful note-that she hopes the ‘mind, body, spirit’ language is someday a language all of humanity is proficient in.
The beautiful souls of Spiritually Psyched express how important it is to actively participate in our spirituality. That through our connection, we can find deeper meaning and healing. That while prayer and meditation are fabulous ways to connect spiritually, you get to decide what prayer looks like to you. The women of Spiritually Psyched also encourage us all to lean into soulful living, not just for our personal benefit but for the betterment of humankind and the whole planet.
