10 Exercises To Raise Spiritual Intelligence

Updated on February 14, 2011

What I Do To Raise My Feeling Of Wellbeing

In this lens I am going to tell you how I keep my feeling of wellbeing at it's maximum and hopefully those of you that could do with a spiritual lift will see just how simple it is to achieve and see where you go wrong.

Most of us do these exercises without giving them a second thought and don't realise that it's because of these things that they feel well both in body and in mind. Unfortunately for those people that don't apply these exercises into their regular day to day living their health deteriorates drastically and they feel unhappy and even helpless.

When you hear the 10 exercises that I use to keep my spiritual wellbeing as high as possible at all times you may well think that I haven't got a clue what i'm talking about, but ask yourselves this "would I waste my time and energy writing this information in a lens if I didn't know what I was talking about?"...well would you?..no and neither would I. So, are you ready to hear what it is that I do to raise my feeling of wellbeing to it's fullest potential?...Good, and i'm ready to tell you so here's my secret.

Variety Is The Spice Of Life - Remember To Add Some Spice Into Your Life.

We all have the choice to make choices so add more variety into them to keep yourself enthusiastic for things which after all you have chosen to do and try everything, how else will you gain those oh so important life experiences if you don't try everything at least once and don't be despondent about anything with which you face, whatever it is you should expect it to be fantastic..amazing even. Be amazed at yourself for at least giving everything a go even when the thing itself wasn't as wonderfull as you expected it to be, don't allow anything to be pointless.

Go in search for moments of contentment, know what it is and above all appreciate it, try seeing things as a child sees them which will bring contentment from the simplest things, don't take anything for granted, be content with everything that you do.

Everything that makes you smile should be amazing to you...this is contentment, your own little slice of paradise. So it is totally up to you to enjoy them, enjoy and feel contentment when you see a child smile, a bird singing, even when you have completed a task such as the washing or ironing, stand back and be content that it is done...it's the simple things such as these which we see a lot of so be happy with them and you will feel a lot of happiness.

Having a playful attitude as you go about doing the things which you have to do is very important to your spiritual growth as well as change the way you feel about doing everyday things and chores, face it...it is only your attitude of boredom that makes anything seem boring. Again it is important to adopt a childlike attitude when doing the things you usually see as being boring.

Ok so doing things that you have to do and wouldn't chose to do won't suddenly be amazing but when you do them with a playful attitude you will be amazed at how amazing you will feel once the job is finished, try it and see...it's amazing. lol

Be Cheerful

Whatever there may be to cause unhappiness in your life, there is always the time when you can choose to be cheerful instead. Practice being cheerful by putting on a look of cheerfulness, smile and lightly squeeze your cheeks, this will stimulate your brain to believe that you are happy which will then produce happy chemicals, which do make you happy. Remember that practice makes perfect so after a short time of doing this regularly your happiness levels will be much higher, which of course spirals upwards making you feel even happier each time.

Unload That Extra Baggage & Go Forward Travelling Light.

Discard all of that baggage which you are carrying around...you don't need it.

By discarding your extra baggage which you have been carrying with you for years you will make space for further spiritual development, at the moment you arn't developing as fast as you can because you are weighed down with the baggage of your past, you need to sort out what you need and what you can do without.

Put the past away where it belongs, shrug it off because it is holding you back, you don't need it after all and you know this but haven't been able to let go of it untill now. Today is the first day of the rest of your life...as soon as you put your past behind you you will feel so much lighter and will see things in a much brighter light than you do right now. This is what you need to do to have the happiness that you deserve, that you want so much and is within your reach.

As long as you can keep an open mind and adopt a playful attitude towards life your life will change for the better, what have you got to lose! The choice as always is yours. Positive thinking is terrific medicine and when you think positively and expect the amazing then that is exactly what you will get, maybe not over-night but within a week or two you will definitely begin to feel exactly what you are...Amazing.

You have a natural generosity like that of a child within you so use it and enjoy using it. Enjoy sharing, love helping and especially love giving, giving willingly and never grudgingly.

Soon you will know that you have indeed cured yourself from...from yourself, yes you really are amazing just as I said you were arn't you!. You will begin to get a spiritual lift-up each time you do something for others and that will trigger you to do even more wondrous things because you feel so much better than you do right now.

The Dance Of Life - Dance Dance Wherever You May Be

Dance like no-one is watching

Dance, dance where-ever you may be I am the Lord of the dance said he, for he carry's you all whoever you may be, Dance, dance said he !

Honest and True

Always tell the truth, if you face a situation where you feel as though you may need to lie...maybe to save someone else's feelings then choose to say nothing instead...you never know where you are with a liar.

Most importantly be honest and true to yourself because if you cannot trust yourself then who can you trust! More to the point is, who else will be able to trust you!.

Ask God

Have frequent and regular conversations with God and have faith that he will answer your prayers.

      Fantastic lens! If we would just remember to practice these simple things, we'd be so much happier. My dear mom lived all of these principles, all her life. Thanks for reminding me how wonderful she was, and how much I still love her. I read this lens on what would have been her 92nd birthday! Coincidence? No Way!

      Once again I am so impressed with the method you have of displaying your modules; need to pick your brain sometime. Great information on this lens. I think too many times we only think of the physical (body) and forget the spirit (spirituality). We all may have different beliefs but our end goal is the same.

      5 spirits, a tweet and a lens roll. Great job.
