Hello my sweet sweet friends. I’m sitting at my computer right now, with a candle burning, and thought that I would do a post that people have been asking me to do.
Disclaimer: This is what I believe..I respect all beliefs and I don’t want any negative comments on here. If there are negative comments, I will delete them because my blog is to encourage people, not to spread negativity around. Thank you.
So if you would like to know more…keep reading……
As some of you may know, this year I took myself on a self awareness/self reflection journey. It has been amazing and I can’t wait to continue it into the year of 2017. In this time, I have learned a lot about myself, and one of them is about religion. Now I am a Christian, I have been my whole life etc. I’m currently 27 and just this year 2016, I have realized what I really believe in. This is what I believe…my own personal belief, not taken from my parents or friends….just me. One thing I have realized is that I’m more spiritual and faith based than religious. And you might ask: ok what does that mean?
Well, I believe in God, I believe he had a son who came to this earth and died on the cross for our sins. I believe we all are sinners and that our sins can be taken away by repenting and asking God for forgiveness. But going off from that, I also believe that faith has a huge part in believing that there is a God or a high power…however it is that you choose to think of it. One of my life verses is 2 Corinthians 5:7 which says “I will walk by faith, even when I can not see.” This verse has meant so much to me and has played a huge part in my life as I have gotten older. I have gone through so much where I have needed faith in order to get through it. I’ve needed to believe that God has a bigger plan for whatever has happened. When I feel I have no idea what to do, I turn to God, and I turn to faith…I remember that faith can move mountains…Matthew 17:20 basically says “that if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, then you will tell this mountain to move, and it will move.” In this specific verse, Jesus was trying to get the people to understand that you need to have faith in order to really believe that something can happen. “For nothing is impossible with God” Luke 1:37. So for me, I really believe that faith can truly make a huge difference in your life. I’ve noticed it so much in my life, and that is the core of my belief. So then you might add…ok well what do you mean by spiritual?
I do yoga, and I practice meditation. No where in the bible, as far as I know…it talks about yoga or meditation. For me, yoga and meditation are a way to really focus into mindfulness

I have really bad anxiety especially driving, so for me it helps to calm my mind and my body so that I can do what I need to do for that day. So all of this goes together for me because, I’m nurturing my soul with my faith in God, i’m nurturing my mind by practicing meditation and i’m nurturing my body by practicing yoga. This for me is a spiritual practice; I do this most days…I work nights so I do this once I get home and settled…so I get up/home and get coffee, do my devotions, and prayer for that day to nurture my soul, I then meditate to nurture my mind and I then do a 5-10 minute yoga flow to nurture my body. So this my spiritual practice and what I believe.
If you like this, comment, share and follow…and let me know if you would like to see more posts like this. I respect all beliefs, so if you belief something different, it’s ok with me…you do you 🙂
I encourage you all to explore what you believe whether that be in crystals or reincarnation or God or whatever…explore for yourself…by yourself…not for others or because of what someone else believes or because of the way you were brought up. You are an individual and you are allowed to believe or practice whatever you feel comfortable with…and that I feel is so beautiful and precious about religion or spirituality…there’s no right or wrong way…there’s just you and your belief and what you need to nurture your soul, mind and body. No one can take that away from you no matter how hard they try.
