5 Reasons Why I Love Spirituality

Hi everyone
Today's blog post is a rather personal topic. I wanted to share with you 5 reasons why I love spirituality.
I haven't spoken about my spiritual side much on BunnyMoonstone because I wasn't ready to open up and talk about it. But now I feel like I'm ready to share :).
1. Identity
My spirituality is a strong part of my identity. The more that I accept my identity then the more I love myself.
My spiritual path has helped me an enormous amount of self-love which then has resulted in a massive boost of confidence and assertiveness. In the past, I was a giver with no limits. I gave all of my energy and time away without thinking about myself. This would lead to exhaustion and anxiety.
I've learned that I can be the sensitive, big-hearted soul that I always have been but I don't have to be a pushover. I can do whats right for me without feeling guilty because I am my own best friend. I've set healthy boundaries so I don't give all my energy away freely. If you respect yourself then so will others around you.
Doreen virtue's book "assertiveness for earth angels" book helped me and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with assertiveness or feeling as though you give too much to others.

2. Growth
I find it truly fascinating to reflect how much I've grown as a person in knowledge, physically and emotionally over the years. Spirituality teaches me that growth is essential to become a better person. Each day I try and be a better person than I was yesterday. I've made mistakes and I continue to make them because it's apart of the human experience.
Spiritual growth has helped me to become more conscious about what I put in my body to consume and also for beauty purposes. I switched slowly to cruelty-free beauty last year in April and it took me a year to slowly change over my makeup whilst learning about companies who do and do not test on animals.

Recently I purchased a Salt Of The Earth Travel Size Unscented Deodorant because I was watching videos about harmful chemicals in standard deodorants. This is why I decided to switch to a natural one.
As you are reading this blog, i'm looking into transitioning from cheap sanitary towels for natural chemical free versions as I'd like to go more natural with my menstrual cycle. Reviews of what I decide to purchase will be coming soon.
I do the best that I can with what funds I have. I make little changes which all add up to make a big impact. I live by my own rules because it makes me feel better and happier.

3. Gratitude
Today is 21st September which means it's World Gratitude Day. What are you grateful for? leave me a comment below :)
To have an attitude of gratitude has changed my life for the better. I've learned about gratitude and about how important it is.
Taking a moment each day to stop about how you have a roof over your head, food and water in your belly and everything you have. Stopping to thank people who make a difference in our lives. It's not happy people who are thankful but it's happy people who are. I'm glad that my spiritual path has shown me gratitude because I think that it keeps me focused on the positives in life.

4. Relaxation
Meditation helps me to relax and to sleep better.

5. Everything Happens For A Reason
Spirituality has shown me that everything happens for a reason which is the good, the bad and the ugly.

Let me know in the comments below what you love about spirituality and how it's helped you.

Bunny Hugs,

  1. I have definetly started to feel more at peace with myself since embracing my own spirituality. Yoga, asking the universe for signs and I'm also trying to transition to more natural products ☺️
