Spirituality

Background

This information is about the specific health area mentioned above. It comprises a combination of textual and video information, on our site and on external sites.  We will be adding new specific health areas and further information continually.

The idea is for you to understand more about the health area you are addressing before you get too far building your action plan.

General Information

Spirituality – noun
the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.
“the shift in priorities allows us to embrace our spirituality in a more profound way”.

It involves the recognition of a feeling or sense or belief that there is something greater than myself, something more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater whole of which we are part is cosmic or divine in nature. The wise shamen and healers said that human spirituality is composed of three aspects: relationships, values, and life purpose. For many people, it is connected to large questions about life and identity. For some, it’s associated with their church, mosque or synagogue. For others, it’s a personal relationship with a higher power, whether the universe, the divine or a person’s God.

We believe it is a key part of a person’s overall well-being or health.

If you want a quick intro to spirituality, see Sadhguru’ short video explaining how to get started with spirituality

If you are prepared for a long no-bullshit intro to spirituality from Actualized.org – the video says: “What Is Spirituality? – A clear and concrete explanation of spirituality for scientifically-minded, rationally-minded, atheistically-minded people.”  This is two and half hours long!  He discusses life coaching and the “wheel of life”, which is similar to what we use on our site, with 8 spokes on the wheel, etc.

If you want a more scientific view, watch the video “A Neuroscientist Looks at Parapsychology with Marjorie Woollacott

Background Information

There is information available which will help you formulate your action plan – both on our site and on external sites.

SuccessDrive looks at how different views of life affect whether we believe we’re successful or not, and this leads us to consider things other than material success.

We have relevant information on SuccessDrive

IMERE is the Institute for Mystical Experience Research and Education.

Their mission is ” to advance the creation, communication, and application of mystical experience knowledge to help unite people throughout the world and to assist individuals in their spiritual growth.”  It respects all religions and world views, and isn’t affiliated to any one religion or religious body, and welcomes any spiritual person.

“A human being … experiences himself … as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness …. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature …”

— Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate in Physics (1921)

If you have ever had a mystical experience and are prepared to share it, they have a a safe and secure way of contributing it.  You can see the experiences that other people have submitted here.

Psychology Today have some thoughts on spirituality which are interesting – not talking about whether these ideas and concepts are right or wrong but more about their effect on people.  See an except below.

“Spirituality means different things to different people. For some, it’s primarily about a belief in God and active participation in organized religion. For others, it’s about non-religious experiences that help them get in touch with their spiritual selves through quiet reflection, time in nature, private prayer, yoga, or meditation.

Many people identify as spiritual but not religious: With a few exceptions, the percentage of adults who identify as religious in many industrialized countries is declining, while remaining generally high in less developed nations. Even as religious affiliation decreases, though, a sense of spiritual identification could remain steady or even increase.”

Video

Sometimes the owner of a video will not allow the video to be played on external sites.  If you see the video is unavailable on the left just click the ‘WATCH NOW’ link on the right and the video will play in a new window.

A Crash Course on Spirituality

Vishen Lakhiani is the founder of MindValley, and this video cover a crash course on spirituality – 4 levels of consciousness and the big questions.  It says:

“In this talk Vishen Lakhiani, author of “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind” shares his model for understanding how human beings expand their levels of consciousness and brings into place ideas from the leading teachers at Mindvalley including Alan Watts, Neale Donald Walsch, Lisa Nichols and Michael Beckwith.

This talk attempts to unify ideas from several great philosophers to create a map for understanding how to expand your consciousness and function in the world in a more spiritual and effective way.”

It’s longish – 47 minutes – but contains some interesting ideas.  The 4 levels of consciousness are worth looking at.
