Many of us have heard that spiritual healing is an integral part of recovery. But getting started can feel so daunting.
Do we need another person to guide us?
What if we haven’t practiced any “spiritual stuff”‘ before?
How do we know if we are doing it the “right” way? How do we even begin to do it at all?
The good news is, there is no right or wrong way to embark on a spiritual path or begin spiritual healing. You do not need to belong to a congregation, nor do you need to have attended church in any capacity to be in tune with your spiritual self. No matter how you define yourself or your belief system, you’re doing it right, even if you don’t know what you believe yet.
The beautiful and freeing part of spirituality is that you get to define your own healing, go at your own pace, and choose what is right for you.
You can connect to something higher than yourself, no matter what you call it, and no one can control or interfere with it.
Spirituality Can Mean:
- Taking time for reflection
- Spending time in nature
- Attending AA/NA meetings
- Making art
- Making Amends
- Committing to mental health and substance abuse support
- Honoring your dreams
- Forgiving yourself
- Mentoring others in recovery
- Spending time with loved ones
- Playing music
- Turning your life around
- Learning new talents
Whatever supports your healing and contributes to positive, sustainable changes in your life can be defined as a spiritual path.
