All Forms Of Self-Care Are Spiritual

When discussing the topic of self-care, the conversation is typically focused on physical, mental, and emotional self-care all of which are very important for one’s overall well being. That said, many believe your spiritual self also requires some love to help you feel grounded, connected to something larger than yourself, tapped into a sense of purpose, and aids you in navigating the curveballs life throws at you (here’s looking at you, 2020).


Meghan Rose, a spiritual advisor and tarot card reader, says spiritual self-care boils down to mindfulness practices that allow you to connect to your higher self — the most authentic and aligned part of you — and hear your inner voice and what it’s telling you it needs. From there, Rose says, the self-care part comes into play when you take action to satisfy your spiritual body’s needs.


As with all types of self-care, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Some practices and rituals will work better for others. To give you some inspiration, below, Rose shares seven spiritual practices and rituals for tending to your spiritual self.


Meditating

According to experts, meditation — whether it’s guided (via a meditation app or YouTube video) or self-guided — is one of the best ways to nurture your spiritual self. “Meditation is the practice of focusing the mind on a particular thought or object in order to bring awareness and gain mental clarity,” Rose says. She adds that there is no right or wrong way to meditate and any activities that bring your mind into a flow state such as painting or cooking also help achieve clarity. Austin recommends not being stringent about how you meditate as that defeats the practice’s purpose.


Walking

If sitting still during a meditation is not your vibe, Austin says you can also reap the spiritual benefits of meditating by taking a walk — think of it as an active meditation. “Connecting with our bodies is a huge part of spirituality,” she says, and a walk can help you ground into your body. Furthermore, she says, allowing your mind and your body to wander and just experience walking without an intention or destination can help to better hear your intuition.


Practicing yoga

Yoga is good for getting a sweat and workout in but it’s also a great spiritual practice that brings together the mind, body, and spirit. “Moving the body through a yoga flow allows you to build dedication, clarity, awareness, and self-regulation that can follow you off of your mat,” Rose says. “It allows us to find mastery over our thoughts, a deeply grounded understanding of our bodies, and an alignment with our truth.”
