What do you think is ‘Spirituality’? Or do you consider yourself to be a spiritual person? If yes, what are the signs of a spiritual person? If not, then how to become a spiritual person?

It’s possible that you may confuse this word with the divine gurus and their philosophies and teachings. Many a time we often get confused between religion and spirituality. But that’s not what a spiritual person is or what spirituality is.

Spirituality means ‘knowing yourself’ or in a better way, we can say discovering yourself. It means to find peace and serenity within yourself that is, in your inner world, within your thoughts and vibrations. Your spirituality is your awareness of what you are “being’ at the moment with much less attention on past experiences.

And to be a spiritual person, you don’t need to start giving motivational speeches or Gyaan to anybody anywhere. You don’t need to be a Dharma guru or a 24-hour meditation practitioner. You can discover spirituality within you at any age at any time irrespective of the sources of knowledge you possess. As spirituality is itself a very divine source of vibrations or energy.

In this article, I will discuss with you some of the major signs and characteristics of a spiritual person. If you can resemble most or all of the signs discussed here, then you are on the right path in life.

1. You believe in the universe, God, and yourself

As a spiritual person, you trust your instincts or your guts more than anything else. You possess a very powerful belief system over the whole universe; because of which The universe and your life always guide you towards the right path.

2. You follow more acceptance than complaints

Nobody’s life is perfect. Despite knowing this fact, many of us keep on complaining about many kinds of stuff on a regular basis. But this is not the case with a spiritual person. If you believe in spirituality, then you know the importance of acceptance over complaints. You don’t criticize or blame anyone or anything for the obstacles in your way, rather you just accept it and you go with the flow while learning from your mistakes.

3. You are comfortable with ignorance.

Ignorance is bliss for you when it comes to unimportant stuff. These kinds of stuff include wastage of time in judging others, caring about their opinion every single time, comparing yourself to others, and many more. You live your life in your way. You don’t find interest in giving everyone an explanation about what are you doing with your life. Moreover, why give someone else the power to play with your mental health? Click to tweet.

4. You always find a reason to be happy despite all the adversities

The changing seasons of your life have now taught you how to deal with adverse circumstances. You have now actually realized that you can’t find happiness anywhere else apart from your mind, soul, and vibrations. It’s not that you never become upset, but as discussed above, you accept all the emotions equally; whether happiness or sadness.

5. You are more humble, kind, empathetic, and compassionate

It’s not true that you are a storehouse of ultimate knowledge and information, but even in the state of not knowing something, you remain humble. After your spiritual awakening has taken place, you have become more calm and composed. You are in favor of more love than hate, more compassion than abhorrence.

6. You are always optimistic

Optimism is the most supreme quality of a spiritual person. And they just hate negative thoughts or negative vibrations. Even a smaller quantum of negative energy is detected by their extremely sensible sensor.

If you are an optimistic one, you will have eyes that can see something good even in the worst. Even after experiencing a lot of struggle, pain, or darkness in your path of life, you embrace everything with thankfulness believing the fact that everything will work out for you, in the end.

Optimistic emotions like practising gratitude or affirmations, and appreciating people or things are on your to-do list daily.

7. You are more energetically charged than others

The aura that you create in your surroundings is different. People enjoy your company as they feel more aliveness and connectivity with you. You are full of enthusiasm and positive vibes that can make someone forget all their problems and develop a sense to enjoy more.

8. You possess an intensified perception of every little thing in nature

A spiritual person is the closest to nature. Always fascinated by nature and its beauty, you cherish every little blessing of nature. It’s overwhelming to enjoy spending some time alone gazing at the natural landscape, the plants, animals, sunrise, sunset, moon, etc. You try to find the meaning of life by observing nature and its components.

9. A higher state of well-being and mental quietness

You might be familiar that meditation is an important chapter in the subject of spirituality. Do you know why? Because it enables us to concentrate on our thoughts and provides stability to our minds.

You desire to reconnect with yourself more and more with your increased consciousness. Not only this, you possess an excellent power of manifestation as well as visualization. Cheers to your intuitions or gut feelings!

10. You Know the importance of being in the present

The secret to a happy and satisfying life is to always live in the present, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. Our mind concentrates less on the present and more on the thoughts of the past and future.

As soon as you begin to strive and focus on the present moment, more than half of your thoughts are eliminated. As a result, you can focus only on what is important right now at the moment. By doing this, you gradually lose interest in worrying about other things which are not as important as it seems.

11. You are willing to love and give without expecting anything in return

Suppose you are a helping hand to someone. A spiritual person doesn’t help or give something to someone while expecting that he will receive the same. He just does so because he finds happiness in doing so. That’s the reason a spiritual person is loved more because he loves more.

12. You are intuitive in nature

You trust your intuition and can even solve difficult problems with the help of your intuition. Most of the time you notice the vibes around you and your surroundings which makes you further intuitive.

13. You forgive and let go.

Forgiveness to yourself and to others, reduces the web of doubt, fear, and guilt that keeps you stuck when you recall your mistakes. This simple act of forgiveness displays honor and respect from your side. Moreover, as you forgive you not only let go of mistakes; you also increase the rate of vibration of your energy since you’re immersed in compassion.

Bottom line

We are not human beings on a spiritual journey but we are spiritual beings on a human journey.
