Hi All,

I have been posting to the other side of this site, but was directed here (hope this one is right) to ask my question about spirital side.

Q: People keep telling me to learn about my spirital side and I am confused by this statement. I know who I beleive in and what my beliefs are, so help me understand this.

I have recently gone through a divorce, lost my home and he was abusive/addict. It has been 7 months.

hi Zebra...my spiritual side is having something/someone, say a "higher power" (God) being with me and watching over me...directing me and guiding me.

I pray daily, everyday, and have been for sooooo long, I love talking to God daily, I know HE hears me, and I know I need to be patient.

I don't have a job, bills piling up, wished I hadn't made the move to another state, gave up on my great job for "no job"....but there is a path I am on, I believe.

I think having spirituality, is just believing and knowing that I will be ok, no matter what. I go thru good times and bad, but in the end "I survive"...with that, I think cuz of my beliefs in my HP.

I am rambling, and I hope you can understand this thru all my rambles!!

You know what you believe religion wise. You know what you believe concerning God. Sometimes finding your spiritual side can be as simple as taking a walk in soaking in nature (or God's handiwork), it can be as simple as climbing in a tub of hot water, lighting candles, listening to soothing music and completely clearing your mind or reading a book. I know a lot of Christians have a problem with meditating because nature hates a void and if you empty your mind the devil can creep in but don't pay attention to that either. Do things to nurture yourself. Maybe something as a special girly smelling fabric softener for your sheets. Finding your spiritual side and involve a lot more than religion.

These are only a few things because I struggle with it as well.

((Camer)) (((Bisty)))

I do believe in a HP (God) I do beleive he has put me here and through what I am going through for a reason. I do beleive he will take care of me.

I get the impression from some people that I talk with friends (not real close ones) and co-workers that they must think because I am hurting and going through the divorce, which is done with, that I don't know who I am or about my spirital side.

I do know who I am and what I beleive in and in God. I do pray every day and do ask for guidance on my path and for strenght and for patience in my healing process. I do beleive and know I have been blessed a million times over.

Camer you are so brave to have left your job and moved to another state. I so want to do that to, but I must wait until my yougest child is out of high school before I can make any imporant move like that for me.

Thank you both for being here for me.

Hi Zabra,

Only my input, I have a hard time taking care of one if I'm not taking care of all three. Physically, emotionally, and Spiritually, also some refer to mind, body and spirit. The three together promote greatest amount of peace in my mind, body and spirit.

I have found that taking that special time for me helps get in touch with my spiritual side, my belief in God. Also like Bitsy, it can be taking a nice relaxing bath, and feeling the peace from within. It's a feeling you have in your heart that you just feel good...not your physical heart, it comes from the center of your body... if you try to think of a special event or time that you felt that feeling when you may have thought wow that is so beauitul, it's that kind of feeling from within. I also pray, and meditate, and have in the past used sound therapy to help me relax and let the things that might be bothering me go, and I hand it over to God, this is in short how I get in touch with my spiritual side.

Healing and Peace

Perhaps what your friends were refering to is not religion. Spirituality refers to the inner most part of you, your core if you will, and that which you project to others. Similar to attitude but much much deeper.

I would suggest googling Spirituality and discover the many different sides to spirituality. Thay have classes, courses, even counselors that specialize in "Spirituality".

Also, why notask them what they mean by spirituality and how they work on their spirituality.

You all are do wonderful. I do agree and do think the same as most of you on this spirituality. I do know that I am on the right track because I do feel peace within now.

I think just working on all three as I do believe work together will be good for me.

(((Precious))) I will ask them what they man by spirituality...good one.

You've truly got it! It's actaully fairly simple, isn't it. It's kind of like I said on another thread, and I believe you already know just by your own last post here. Your spirit is always with you, and no one can take that away from you. Some people lose it for a while in the sense they're not in touch with it at times but it's always there.

There are times when we are weak or feel that we just can't go on, but that's when you say to yourself, I do have my spirit and I can lean on it, to me this is God's gift that was promised to us, the Spirit of his very essence is shared in all of us.

When I was at my worst health medically after the accident. I was truly blessed with a Doctor that also believed in God, and our spirit being part of who we are.. One day I was laying in the hospital bed truly weak! Weaker then I really ever thought I could possibly ever be, and he came into the room and he kept telling me to look at him, to look into his eyes, it was hard to do because I was at the giving up point, and really weak, and I almost didn't care anymore.. I say almost because my spirit did care, and once I was able to look into his eyes as he kept insisting, he repeated over and over to me in a firm but kind and gentle way.. Do not lose your spirit, he was speaking from his heart, from his spirit, he got through to me. I remember giving him as much of a smile as I could get out, (which wasn't much) but I completely understood what he was saying... with all my heart I had to not let go of my fight, my faith, my belief, and my knowing that my spirit had got me through everything in my life so I couldn't give up.. which was what he meant by saying don't lose your spirit.. to keep going, keep fighting, and don't give up.

This lead to even more of my healing and peace, but that's just too much to type right now.. lol

This happened after that 63rd procedure that I had shared on the other side...I didn't put this in the other thread on the other side because it is faith based, and speaks of God, and my point there was just to say I am empathetic to others, as we all have had or have our own battles, and we have to sometimes look at things in a loving and understand way.

Healing and Peace,

My spirit is alive and well. She helped me deal with an issue today regarding my EX and drama...you can read on the other side (thread: Help need advice). She helped me stay strong and to keep fighting for my peace.

I had to stop and pray at my work desk today over this as it happened through my email at work. It was so hard, but I kept praying and told myself I will not give up or give in and that I am worth whatever God has set before me and I can do this.

I think wow this person has gone through some major accident and has survived...I am only going through heartache...and I will survive.

I posted on your thread on the other side... You will and can do this, you sound so strong hearted.

Not from experince but only through friends telling me how difficult it was for them to go what your going through I know it must be really difficult. I remember how heart broken one of my closest friends was after she found out her husband was cheating on her after 18 years of marriage... I felt so helpless to her. She lost so much weight, that when I would give her a hug she felt like bones.. and I didn't see her getting better for a long time.. but she did and is now married again.

My best wishes are with you... Healing and Peace

It is hard and I know I am strong and will get through this.

Married again would be a blessing to me. Maybe someday.

I am like your close friend and not looking right now...I just want to be alone with myself and do my own thing for now.

I do have children. 3 young men. one is 23 living on his own, but visit often. one is 20 and at home and one is 16 and at home. They love me very much and we do such good things together and for each other. My focus has been on them too as they are very angry over what my EX and their step-dad did to me and us.

My children get very concerned about my weight loss as well and they make sure I am eating at least one good meal a day. I am trying.

Lot of work, but we are managing.
