Tips On How To Empower Yourself Spiritually:
This may seem like an obvious one when it comes to spiritual empowerment, but it’s because meditation is an incredibly powerful, if not, themost powerful tool in your spiritual empowerment tool belt. You can get a lot of spiritual growth and development out of just 10-20 mins of meditation a day. The key with meditation, if you haven’t tried it, is to start small.
Even just sitting still in a quiet place for one minute at a time is a great place to start. Meditation isn’t just about clearing your thoughts, which is what may seem so intimidating about it, to those of us whose minds don’t stop running. It’s about reflecting and focusing your thoughts on what it is that you want to meditate on.
To meditate effectively it is also important to do it in a location that you’re comfortable and can relax in, preferably the same place every day. You can even light candles, or decorate your meditation area with some crystals and other objects that carry good energy. You can meditate silently, or play some music, even a guided meditation if you aren’t sure what to meditate about or need some meditation inspo. It can really turn into a fun activity that you look forward to every day!

2) Go outside and connect with nature
Nature is another great spiritual empowerment facilitator. In fact, you can even combine tips 1 and 2 and meditate outside in a quiet part of nature that you love. Nature is awesome because it’s filled with calming and high frequency energies.
I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say that nature stresses them out, have you? Well, maybe mosquitos, but that’s another story. Insects aside, the elements of nature and the energy they carry and charge you with are ultra grounding and can serve to balance out the energy within you so you can focus on your spiritual empowerment.
Disconnecting with technology, the chaos of society, drama with people, stress of work, etc. and just taking some time to shut off and connect with nature is one of the most spiritually empowering things you can do. After a long day of sitting at a desk and staring at a screen, the one thing I love doing is taking a walk with my dog, or just gazing at the sky, a tree, a waterfall or a bright patch of grass, anything that isn’t man-made—and I instantly feel a refreshing charge of energy.
Connecting with nature outside of you is therapeutic and calming, but you can also connect with the nature within you to feel the same results. Reflecting on the fact that you, yourself are part of nature brings you to a very grounded and humble place, where you can look at yourself as connected with, and part of the universe, allowing you to assess who you are at your most basic state.
Seeing yourself as nature and appreciating that you have divine energy within you can also help you to see your value and beauty. The same way God made nature and nature is perfect and beautiful, God made you and you are perfect and beautiful just the way you are, naturally!
Tapping into nature and the nature within you and around you is a great way to feel connected with the earth, the divine, and ultimately yourself. Connecting with nature allows you to appreciate the little things in life: the warmth of the sun on your skin, the beauty of the blue sky, the ground beneath your feet, a cool breeze on your cheek. It can remind you why it’s so great to be alive, and so great to be you! Nature can deepen your spiritual connection to the universe, and more importantly to your true self, and the nature within you.
3) Think positively and choose faith over fear.
This one can be tricky because it is much easier said than done, so have some patience with yourself when practicing this tip. Spiritual empowerment is living in, and seizing the present moment, and this is pretty hard to do when you’re in a state of fear or negativity.
That’s why it’s important to shift your mentality to a positive and faith-based one in order to be spiritually empowered. How does one do this, you ask? Well, it’s all about detecting when those negative thoughts, or that fear creeps into your mind and catching them before they get too engrained.
Then comes the tough part, changing the fear and negativity into faith and positivity. This is all about perspective, and sometimes you can trick yourself into a positive mind-frame by doing things like forcing a smile, or repeating a positive mantra, until your mind begins to follow your actions.
One easy way to change your thoughts positively and empower yourself spiritually, is to just think of the things that you love about yourself. Go on, don’t be shy! It doesn’t even have to be that deep, maybe you love your eyes, or your dimples. That’s a good start and eventually you’ll be able to think of qualities and characteristics you love about your inner self, which is what really matters. And that’s what spiritual empowerment is all about, folks! Loving what makes you you, on the inside!
One way to conquer fear and turn it into faith is, you guessed it, to face your fears. Step out of your comfort zone, you may hate it, but you also just may love it and wonder what it is you were afraid of all this time. If nothing else, you can be proud of yourself for trying. After all, you can’t empower yourself spiritually by doing the same things you’ve always done, it’s about changing things up in order to grow. Have faith that uncomfortable changes will result in spiritual, and even mental and emotional growth.
And remember, life doesn’t always go your way, and it’s about progress, not perfection. Don’t expect to be able to always think positively and cast out all fear in your mind overnight, even the most spiritual gurus of all time have an occasional fear or negative thought.
Just keep in mind that every day is a new beginning, and a new opportunity to improve yourself and grow spiritually. Every day is a new shot at empowering yourself spiritually and an inch closer to your goal of loving and connecting with your true self. Let the light in, and every day you wake up, decide that it’s going to be a great day no matter what happens. Get excited about the potential each day brings, cuz the universe has your back, girl!
Growth and abundance don’t come from negativity and fear, they sprout from love, faith and good vibes! Focus on the high frequency vibrations of faith and love and not much can go wrong. We all know that you can’t always control your surroundings, but you can always control your perspective. There is always something to be grateful for and positive about.
By being in a positive mind-frame you release good energy and allow abundance and love to come back into your life. Be the change you want to see in the world; sending out love and good vibes will help you love yourself and attract good vibes into your life, furthering your spiritual journey. Loving others and allowing them to be themselves, without judgment, will allow you to love yourself and be who you are, without judgment—and that’s the ultimate goal of spiritual empowerment.
