Spritual practices for personal growth and wellbeing

As we go through life we are continually changing and developing. Our characters, life desires, goals and beliefs can change. Events and circumstances that happen to us can be life changing. They can be the cause of having to change or can make a person want to change. They can inspire a desire for change, spark inspiration for new goals or make a person reflect on their life and decide on improving their wellbeing. The events in our life can encourage a desire for personal growth. 

At points in our life we adopt new lifestyle changes in the quest for happiness, improved self-awareness, contentment and wellbeing. Whilst everyone’s circumstances are different and change can mean something completely different from one person to another for example someone might want to change careers whilst another might want to start a new exercise regime for health and wellbeing, many people turn to spiritual practices in the quest for personal growth. 

Here a just a handful of spiritual practices that people adopt in their desire for personal growth and pursuit to better understand themselves - 

* Numerology 
In basic terms, numerology is the study of numbers in your life. The numbers help people gain a better understanding of the world and themselves as individuals. Numerology considers that a person’s life is affected by their birthdate, as such the art of numerology uses birthdate to find a person’s life path number. A life path number describes a person’s personality and character as well as summarising challenges and opportunities. Numerology highlights both positive and negative traits so that a person can reflect on both for personal growth and it looks at all aspects of life including personal traits, health, love and career.

* Palmistry 
The practice of palmistry is examining the palm and fingers of a person’s hands. The lines, markings, mounts, hand and finger shapes all spark interpretation of a person’s character as well as predicting their future. Whilst palmistry is associated with predicting a person’s future using major lines on their palm such as life line and heart line, many people practice the art of palmistry not for predicting the future but more about identifying their personality traits and behaviour to empower them to understand themselves better and inspire reflection about their character for personal growth. 

* Feng Shui 
Feng Shui is an ancient art from many thousands of years ago that originated from China. Translated into English the words feng shui literally mean ‘wind-water’. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health so good feng shui developed to mean good fortune with bad feng shui being associated with misfortune and hardship. Part of the practice of feng shui is placement of items within a space and introducing elements into our space to provide balance (the yin and yang principle), use of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water which represented by certain colours) to bring harmony for good feng shui. The art of feng shui includes practices to encourage good fortune in many forms such as love life, health and career. 

Have you introduced the art of a spiritual practice into your life for personal growth, self-awareness and wellbeing?
