The success of films such as “Eat, Pray, and Love” reveal that we are more in touch with our spirituality, than we are often prepared to admit to ourselves.
It is this spiritual approach we’ve even seen in the business world as well.
From Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday to Jack Canfield’s bestselling book series, “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” successful entrepreneurs far and wide are embracing not only a spiritual approach to life, but to business as well.
There are increasing numbers of people deciding to take a path of spiritual discovery exploring a side of our humanity that for many of us we have not thought much about. Yet when we do decide to accept that we are not just a physical body, we may choose to go on a path of spiritual self-discovery.
Here are the three keys to creating spiritual growth that will guide that journey:
Do not be afraid to think outside the box. Expand your mind to the unseen world.
This first key is self-explanatory.
There can be no spiritual growth without acknowledging that there is more out there than the physical dimension of our existence.
Your emotions, intuitive nudges, even inspiration or a sense of faith in something greater affirms the believe in presence of the non-physical elements in life.

Spend as much time considering how to care for yourself spiritually as you care for yourself physically.
We spend a lot of time and money ensuring our physical growth is healthy. We follow the latest fad diet and spend countless dollars and hours at the local gym, seeking to look our physical best. We try to choose a balanced diet and make good lifestyle choices.
The second key to creating spiritual growth is to prioritize it in the choice of how we will spend our day and the things we choose to do in our day. Just as there cannot be good physical health if we do not commit to healthy living, there can be no spiritual health and growth if we do not commit to spiritual health.
Exercise Your Spiritual Expression Right Where You Are
Who says you have to be the Sensei of spirituality to start using your current understanding for your growth and development?
We have all heard the old saying “no pain, no gain” and this is equally true of spiritual growth as it is for physical and intellectual growth.
Therefore, the final key to spiritual growth is to spend time exercising our spirit by asking ourselves the tough questions:-
- Why am I here?
- Where am I going?
- How will I get there?
Asking yourself these existential questions will help you deepen your own personal awareness and center you as you navigate the world around you.
Your Spiritual Growth Matters
Whether we choose a formal religious path or a more fluid journey to your soul development, how you find the answers is a personal choice.
However, unless we are willing to consider these questions and what they mean to us personally, there can be no spiritual growth which helps us make sense of ourselves and natural world around us.
