When you learn to love yourself you might not always think that spirituality is playing a role, but it is. We know that spiritual well-being and health can help us find meaning, peace, and joy in our daily lives, no matter what is happening around us. So spirituality and health are more closely related than you might think.
Learning to love yourself inspires you to take care of your spiritual health. And the more you cultivate a spiritual perspective, the better you feel on the inside. Here are 15 simple yet effective ways to love yourself while improving the health and wellness of your spirituality.
Our breath is a gift that we take with us wherever we go. We always have it, as long as we are alive. The more time we take to breathe from our stomachs, without doing anything else, the easier it becomes to be a witness to ourselves, to others, and to our lives.
And the more easily we can access higher wisdom.
2. Connect with mother nature:
Being in nature is where we experience the real magic. When we look closely at a woodpecker, the trunk of an old tree, or a trillium, we cannot help but see the magnificence of the universe and gain a new perspective on our situation.
White birch trees actually emit serotonin to calm our minds and body!

3. Keep a journal about what you’re grateful for:
It’s the best way to shift our thoughts from negative to positive, increase our self-esteem, help us relax, and feel happy inside. It’s impossible to focus on what we lack when we see how much we already have.
4. Read books about spirituality:
Most of my spiritual knowledge comes from reading books. Whether you read ‘A Course in Miracles’, ‘Journey of Souls’, or the Bible, your wisdom and inner peace will grow.
Spiritual books can teach you how to communicate with your angels, spirit guides, and higher self. They can help you understand the symbolism that the universe shares with you every day.
5. Use angel cards:
You can buy these cards online and pull one whenever you want high-level advice in dealing with an individual or circumstance.
6. Decipher the messages sent you by the universe:
What would we do without Google? Now we can just type in “robin symbolism” and understand its meaning for ourselves. We can do this with animals, reptiles, insects, numbers, flowers, and whatever seems important in our path.
This is how we connect with God and spirituality. The idea is to build a relationship with God. We cannot just continually ask for God’s help without thanking Him.
How many times have you felt completely helpless, prayed, and then felt immense relief? Our prayers are always answered if they are for our greatest good and if we are willing to be patient.
This is how we can hear the answers to our prayers. Meditation begins with simply breathing deeply. Eventually, we can receive wisdom and even connect with the spirits we knew on Earth. The practice is all it takes to get the perspective we need to feel at peace.

9. Get a personalized flower/tree essence elixir:
The healing abilities and high concentration of life force found in flower and tree essences adjust awareness and karma (unresolved traumas and conflicts from past lives) which creates an imbalance in our body and mind.
10. Have a reading:
Having a reading, whether it is a regression from the past life, reading with a medium or an astrological reading connects us spiritually to the universe, helps us to know ourselves, and brings us peace and understanding.
Make sure you meet with someone who is highly recommended!
11. Find the right constitutional homeopathic remedy for you:
Homeopathic remedies are derived from the vibrational essence or energy of plants, animals, insects, reptiles, and minerals.
These remedies provide frequency-specific vibratory energy at the cellular level to the physical, emotional, and spiritual body, and bring balance. A recommended homeopath can determine the right constitutional remedy for you.
12. Reiki courses:
Reiki practitioners allow universal healing energy to come through their hands and help others heal. When we receive Reiki, we can obtain the guidance we need to move forward in our lives, change an unhealthy belief, see our lives more positively or become centered in our power.
This practice has improved our energy and reduced our stress and pain for thousands of years.

13. Essential oils:
Oils actually cross the blood-brain barrier and reach a deeper level within ourselves. The complex and unique scent of each essential oil triggers emotions and memories by activating regions of the brain’s limbic system, which can help individuals clear their emotional blockages and rediscover peace and joy.
14. Use crystals and gems:
When the healing energy is focused through crystals and gemstones, it is sent to the areas of the body that need it most. Quartz crystals, for example, can unblock chakras, remove any imbalance or negativity, enhance meditation, and increase an individual’s connection to the spirit.
15. Love deeply:
Spiritual well-being and health equal love. The more we love ourselves and others and can see the beauty in our circumstances, the better we are spiritually. The more we focus on spiritual well-being and health, the more love we will feel in our lives.
Spiritual wellness and health have allowed me to heal from everything that has happened to me in my life. Whenever I have not been at peace with a circumstance or a person, I have drawn upon my spirituality to process and transcend. I will spend the rest of my life helping others to do the same.
