What happens when we step out of Spirituality?
I always remember when I have started to experience my spiritual life by doing meditations, breathing exercises, forgiveness prayer, healings, etc. It was a feeling that really completes me and let me makes understand about myself much better but somewhere down the line due to some unavoidable reasons I stopped doing all my spiritual practices.
It was really not a good experience. I totally become incomplete and feeling like discharge. I have also taken a survey from many spiritual practitioners that what happens when we step out of spirituality? The comments were unbelievable.
A lady said that sometimes my breath becomes choppy, heartbeat increases, palms sweat, my hands shake, my thoughts bounce between “What the heck’s wrong with you?” to “Why can’t you just suck it up and go to work?” and from “Am I going to have a heart attack?” or to I quickly need to go back to my spiritual practices again.
A young person has said that he becomes lethargic and couldn’t stop himself being emotional. Cries for little difficult conditions. Always ask for help from friends, relatives, God, etc.
A 50 plus uncle said that he becomes very weak. His immune system hardly works when there is a climate change. And always finds himself lazy for any work.
One beautiful young girl said that her glowing face seems to feel dull. Her happiness decreases. She becomes like an angry bird, always shouting.
And in my case I use to sleep as long as I can, becomes fearful, stress increases, tend to use abusing words more, etc. And many other changes I have experienced.
This is those changes which are physical, emotionally and mentally but apart from that, there are also some changes which are ethrical. Means which are related to our aura, chakras or to our energy body.
So these changes are also there because they are all inter-connected with each other. Means our energy body and physical body respond to each other in the same way, the only thing is that their experiences differ from one another.
There are many other common changes like headaches, flu like symptoms, nausea, loose bowel movements, even diarrhea, extreme tiredness, excessive energy, less energy, crying for no reason, feeling emotionally vulnerable, hot flashes and night and day sweats, muscle aches and joint pain, fluttering in the heart area, and pain, breathing problems, putting on weight, losing your memory or feeling spacey, pains in the ears and hearing problems, extreme sensitivity, depression, blowing light bulbs and fizzing electronics, animal reactions, food changes, etc.
So when you feel like that, check in with yourself on what your thoughts and beliefs around spirituality are. Do you talk down to yourself for feeling like this? Do you judge yourself or criticize yourself? Can you be more compassionate instead and start doing your spiritual practices again? Do you believe you are a non-spiritualistic person? Can you be willing to see yourself as something different?
By becoming aware of the stories we tell ourselves about how we are and how the world is, we can consciously choose which stories serve us, and which need to be rewritten in a positive manner. You have the power to rewrite your spiritualistic story. The question is: will you do it? Tell us your story or problems so that we will try to fix it in a new improved way.
