the various health components

Spiritual health is an important component of an individuals well-being and an integral aspect of the holistic health philosophy.that is why I will like to start with this basic component.

Physical, mental and spiritual health are deeply intertwined and have a profound effect on one another.

This truth is clearly exhibited for instance when someone who is sad on the emotional level experiences fatigue, a loss of energy and/or decreased appetite on the physical level and on the spiritual level they feel out of touch with their true self and disconnected from the Universe and the lord who created it.

Another clear example would be that when spiritually we feel lost and unbalanced, this may cause us to be moody and discontent with life, perhaps we grow emotionally distant from our loved ones and on the physical level we may experience stress or fatigue.

On the other hand, when we feel spiritually connected and fulfilled, everything in our life including physical and emotional pain, are easier to deal with. We feel lighter and happier.

There's no denying it - when we feel connected and balanced spiritually we feel better physically and emotionally. Nourishing our spiritual self is as important as food, water and exercise.

Some people claim to experience complete healing from certain health conditions through a variety of spiritual methods, but this doesn't happen all that often.It's important to note that we aren't talking about religion here. Some people may find spiritual fulfillment in religion, but it is only one of many ways. Religion and spirituality are not one in the same. Spiritual connection is about finding meaning and purpose in your life, discovering who you truly are and connecting with the God that provide you inner strength, comfort, hope and inner peace.

Be still and listen. Tune into your inner voice and identify what it is that makes you feel whole, alive and connected to the God of the Universe; this is your spiritual food. When do you feel most fulfilled and complete? What gives you inner peace, comfort, strength and harmony? Your spiritual health, as well as your emotional and physical health, may be improved by cultivating more  of those things ,together with humor and gratitude in your life. Remembering to appreciate the simple things in life and not taking yourself too seriously.
 Once you identify your spiritual needs, nourish them on a regular basis. Don't ignore them or put them off. If you neglect your spiritual health, then you become hungry and search for food in the wrong places, which is destructive and zaps you of your life sustaining energy.Experiencing life completely and consciously, even in the midst of great pain and suffering, is the essence of spiritual health.
