How will living more spiritually change my life?
Embracing your spirituality will help you feel happier and less stressed. I say that if life is a plate piled with friends, family, career, and hobbies, then the plate should be your spirituality--the solid part of your life that doesn't move no matter what gets threatened or taken away. If you have your spirituality as support, you can handle whatever life throws your way.
How can I let my spirit guide me instead of being ruled by my head?
Tap into your higher self--the part of us that is patient and kind and that thinks before reacting. And find the good in people: Think, If I saw this person only as a soul, what would I see that makes her wonderful? It'll help you focus on doing the loving thing instead of letting reason alone guide you.
What are some challenges I may face as I begin to live spiritually?
It can be confusing as you question long-standing beliefs. The insights you gain may lead you to cut off a toxic relationship, listen to something you don't want to hear, or even shift the direction of your life. But on the other side, you'll find a sense of peace and contentment.
