Discovering, developing and connecting your personal voice and spirituality is the key to achieving excellence and peace in your life
Building a bridge between personal voice and spirituality can take a person to a new level of excellence in everything he or she does. But first, it requires a lot of dedication to create a life-soul balance that incorporates mindset building, personal development and your overall well-being.
What is Personal Voice?
Your personal voice relates to your private thoughts and reflections on things around you. Your personal voice is your unique outlook which people see in the way you speak, write, and express your moods and feelings. Just as everyone has a unique and distinct voice for speaking or singing, people also have a unique personal voice which is reflected in the way they act or behave.
What is Spirituality?
Although spirituality is often linked to Christianity or other religions, the term ‘spirituality’ has over the years, come to mean other things. Wikipedia claims that the modern usage of spirituality has been attributed to a belief in the supernatural realm, encountering one’s inner dimensions, religious experience and so on.
It is clear that spirituality is a very broad concept. Regardless, the defination of spirituality that I am talking about is the one that defines spirituality as the deep values people live by. The definition offered by Christina Puchalski, the director of the George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health, is…
Spirituality is the way humans seek meaning and purpose as well as how they express it.
7 Ways to Build a Bridge Between Your Personal Voice and Your Spirituality
1. Find your life-soul balance
If you want to build a bridge between your personal voice and spirituality, you need to ignore the stress and pressure of the competitive world and avoid living a life driven by a standard set by others. Instead, live in alignment with your values — not those of others — and strive for a life-soul balance that creates harmony between your mind, soul, and body.
2. Align your life and soul purpose
When you have a life-soul balance, you’re sure to achieve a deeper awareness of yourself (your personal voice and spirituality) and you will be much more able to realize your life purpose. This involves aligning your life pursuits with your soul’s journey and purpose. Of course, this also involves finding that purpose that is ingrained into your soul which you know you are meant to do. Aligning your life purpose and soul purpose is the key to advancing and evolving toward ultimate fulfillment.
3. Adopt a growth mindset
When you have a growth mindset you will be able to move ahead by developing your talents around those things that come naturally to you. You can’t afford to have a fixed mindset if you want to build a bridge between your personal voice and spirituality because people with fixed mindsets hardly ever feel the need to develop themselves. With a growth mindset, you can deal with — and learn from — the challenges and setbacks that may occur in your journey to build the bridge between your mindset and spirituality.
4. Get inspiration
In order to successfully build your bridge, you need to be inspired. When you’re inspired, you’re sure to get better and faster results. One of the ways to get inspiration is to reflect why you decided to connect your spirituality and personal voice in the first place. You can also get inspired by studying the life and practices of others who have successfully bridged their spirituality and personal voice and gotten desirable results.
5. Promote your wellbeing
On your bridge-building journey, ensure that you are taking care of your mental, emotional, and physical health as well. There are myriad resources of rich information on practices for self-care and well-being, including many articles found on this site. Experiment with new modalities and find ones that works for you and then apply them consistently.
6. Hold strong values
Without strong values, you can’t be at peace with your spirituality. The reason why a lot of people easily get angry, are unnecessarily aggressive, or feel inferior to others is due to their discord within themselves. Having strong values that you absolutely standby is an essential part of spirituality because it maintains your integrity and thus comfort with who you are. You don’t need to push your values on other people to be spiritual; if you are comfortable with yourself, you will experience peace.
7. Personal development
Personal development is a life-long journey. If you stop learning and growing, you can’t possibly maximize your potential and complete your life and soul balance. While developing yourself personally, you also will want to evolve your personal voice to make it grow to the extent that it can shine and attract others.
Tips to further develop yourself:
- Identify a clear vision of where you want to be and what goals you hold for yourself
- Learn from the successes and mistakes of others
- Challenge yourself to learn new things and move beyond your comfort zone
- Don’t be afraid of your flaws; own them and make them work for you… or get rid of them
- Adopt mindfulness and self-care practices that will keep you open, healthy and nurtured
