How to Be Spiritual Without Meditating
I don’t meditate.
I know, I know. I’ve read everything you’ve read about meditation. It’s good for your health, it helps with manifestation, it keeps you young, it enhances your intuition, it increases creativity and productivity … the list of positive benefits is endless, right? And according to our beloved Kris Carr, it’s a prerequisite for Crazy Sexy success!
Ouch. Am I in trouble?
I’ve tried meditation. Yes, I have! While it was supposed to reduce my stress, I found the results to be just the opposite. I did it so wrong so many times that I gave myself quite the head trip. Furthermore, on the days I didn’t try meditating (which were many), I felt guilty. Oh, I thought, if I could just manage that five minutes a day, my life would be completely transformed for the better!
But I couldn’t.
And it wasn’t.
Not one to be deterred, I continued my search for the transformation I was seeking, and, ever so fortunately, I found it.
It all started in a class (a meditation class, might I add!), where I overheard two women speaking about a book that they enjoyed. The title of the book caught my attention, and I mosyed (butted?) my way into their conversation.
“What’s that you say?” I asked.
They gave me the scoop, and what happened next was a long story I’ll make short: I bought the book, called the author, hired her as my life coach, flew to Vermont and spent three transformative days in retreat with her and her husband, twice, I broke through writer’s block after 10 years of trying to do so, worked through a ton of emotional stuff, yada yada yada.
What’s more, I learned all about my past lives and that I have spent multiple lifetimes in meditation. Further, I learned that when we have experienced something enough over the course of many lifetimes, we don’t need to come back and repeat it again. We’re supposed to do some new things. Switch it up.
That means I don’t have to keep pushing myself to meditate anymore.
That might not be the case for you, but there is one more extremely important thing I learned by going through this process, and this one does pertain to you.
I learned about my Soul.
I actually met my Soul (well, ahem, that was in a meditation). I saw what my Soul looked like and I found out its name. I learned what my Soul’s personality is like (yes, our Souls have a personality!). I even learned all about what my Soul brought me into this lifetime to do … aka, my Soul Mission.
Additionally, I learned about Soul/Personality Integration. What that means is I learned how to integrate my Soul’s personality with my own personality in order to become uber-connected at all times.
Whether I’m working, playing, exercising, hanging out, sleeping … you name it. I am in touch with my Soul at every moment, every single day of my life, without meditating.
How can you do that too? I will give you my very top tip, the easiest and simplest one of them all.
Talk to your Soul.
That’s right, just talk to It.
Start asking your Soul questions. You can simply say, “Hi, Soul. What’s your name?” And wait for your answer to come to you intuitively. It may not come to you immediately, but it will come to you, alright.
You can say, “Hey Soul, I need some assistance here. Can you please help me figure this out?” Your help will be on the way, I guarantee it.
You might also say, “I don’t know how to do this, Soul! Will you please do this for me?” Sometimes you can just put things right into your Soul’s capable hands. I do it all the time!
Your Soul is God. It’s a piece of God within you. When you connect with your Soul, there’s a heck of a lot of power that comes along with that.
Guess what else? Your Soul actually wants to connect with you. It wants to be known! It wants you to talk to it and ask it for help. It very much wants to be a part of your life.
And here’s the bonus (at least it was for me): Your Soul is not going to hold you to a strict meditation practice in order to be in a relationship with you. You can be a non-meditator and also be completely soulful.
Try this and see for yourself. It’s utterly mind-blowing, really. Once you get hooked, you’ll never turn back.
As for all those other health benefits you might miss out on by not meditating? Well, for that, I’m relying on green juice.
