Every person who claims to be "spiritual" goes on to state what they believe. The object of that faith can be anything, but the FAITH is the same.
Without faith, there is no spirituality, and vice versa.
Well first I think it should be cleared up what faith actually means. Whenever anybody hears the word faith, they think religion when in all actuality, it is applied in many areas of my life. Faith is simply believing and trusting in something that is uncertain. For example, if you get a car with another driver, you are having FAITH that the person is not going to swerve into the oncoming traffic. We have faith everywhere in our lives, just in different amounts. So in your question, if you consider spirituality to be completely convinced of the truth in your beliefs, then I would say faith would have to be a part of it. Cold hard facts and evidence only get you so far, and then faith is like the bridge from that point to 100% certainty. I happen to be Christian so I have faith in my beliefs. But I am glad that I don't need as MUCH faith due to the sufficient evidence and facts supporting what I believe.

I'm thinking about people who have seen or experienced spiritual things prior to having faith in them.....
