Why spiritual growth is important?

What is Spiritual Growth?

Spiritual growth is a process of moving towards a greater understanding and awareness of oneself, others, and the world. It is an evolution of consciousness from the finite to the infinite, from darkness to light, from selfishness to selflessness, from isolation to unity with all things.


Why spiritual development is important?

Spirituality is a personal journey of growth and discovery. When shared with others, it strengthens relationships and makes life more interesting.

The spiritual growth journey includes the development of the soul, mind and heart.

It is the process of becoming more self aware, healing what is necessary to move on, maturing emotionally and reaching a higher moral standard.


The benefits of spiritual growth

Leading a spiritual life results in spiritual maturity. The spiritual growth journey also has several benefits such as:

  • It provides a purpose to life
  • It gives a sense of belonging and connectedness to a higher power, wholeness and wellbeing
  • It offers a sense of balance, responsibility and hope
  • It makes one realize that we are all interconnected beings of energy

The process also helps our soul to be more loving.
When we love others, we give a meaning to our lives.
Our hearts become more forgiving and we uplift other beings.
We find serenity and express gratitude and appreciation for all that life has offered us.

To grow spiritually, we must let go of our limiting beliefs, from the things that are holding us back from our true self.
These can be in the form of habits, emotions or even certain relationships.

Detach from the material world


How to develop or grow Spiritually?

If you feel driven to improve your spiritual life you should consider practicing meditation (ideally mindfulness or Vipassana), spreading compassion, loving kindness with your thoughts, words and actions, and having faith and trust in the Universe or the Source.

Along with that, make a conscious effort not to identify yourself with anything that is not you.

Based on ancient wisdom, attachment holds you back from growth. We are beings of light, visiting the earth on our short trip. Let go of the ego and detach yourself from pleasure (addiction) and pain (aversion). These are what holds you back from recognizing the light within.

“You have a higher purpose in life and you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.”



Always remember

“We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience”

In terms of our physical realm, spiritual growth helps you deal with your problems, make others around you happy, manifest success and self-confidence, most importantly, helps you find bliss in this frantic world.

In terms of the spirit realm, it has been discovered from accounts of past life regression sessions that it is essential to grow spiritually as all souls yearn to unite with the divine or source energy.

Spiritual growth is accompanied by an increase in vibrational frequency. The soul increases its frequency over lifetimes of physical incarnations, and also while developing in the spirit realm. This contributes to accomplishing its highest purpose, that is – to unite with God.
