Why Spirituality is Good for Your Mental Health

Spirituality, or being concerned about your connection to the human spirit and the light all around us, is beneficial and uplifting for our overall mental health and quality of life. The secular world often looks at spirituality as hocus pocus when dealing with mental health or physical concerns, but the truth is the human body is not a car, it is more than just mechanics. Technology and science are needed and beneficial, but they are not the solve-all that some people hope they are. We have a growing disconnection from that sacred light and love within our bodies, even our physical environments have grown into more concrete and steel with less nature and beauty. This lack of spirituality leaves a void; which we fill with overeating, anxiety, sex, money, fighting, career or some other placeholder which we shove into that void thinking we are doing just fine.

Turn Your Emotions Into Power

Your emotions can be a source of power, but only if you embrace them instead of pretending they don't exist.  Across the world and generations, women have been told that our emotions make us weak and vulnerable. Men are often seen as less masculine if they demonstrate an emotional response. These cultural stereotypes are cages that keep women and men locked up inside of themselves afraid to truly express what they feel because of how society will react. In turn, we see people exploding or having emotional break downs because they tried to cage their heart for so long. Yet, for those who control their emotions without ignoring them and understand how to wield them effectively and when to let them flow, emotions can be turned into power. Your emotions can be like your own personal fuel source. Your spirituality and your emotions are very connected, often for those who seek higher levels of spirituality they find their emotions become stronger.

Learning How to Trust Again

We have all been hurt and experienced pain at some point in our lives. That pain compromises our trust and can transform our perspective on life. It is natural psychologically to defend ourselves when we feel vulnerability would be dangerous, but trust is as much a blessing for our own mental health as it is a gift for those we chose to trust. When trauma or pain takes away our ability to trust others, this means it is continually hurting us and depriving us of deep, meaningful bonds. Our spiritual heart-felt side cannot thrive if we keep ourselves walled up. While we must be careful with whom we decide to open up with, it is not healthy to withdraw trust from everyone. Every relationship whether intimate, professional or family based requires a certain level of trust.
