To live fully embodied lives, we must cultivate health on all levels of our being. In a series of post, I have identified four “bodies” that are non-negotiable when it comes to moving out of pain and frustration and into vitality and a greater sense of purpose in our lives.
The four bodies of health are:
- Physical body
- Mental body
- Emotional body
- Spiritual body
In a series of four posts I review each of these bodies of health.
Here are a few suggestions on how to maintain health and harmony in the fourth body.
There is no faster way to connect with the abundance in our lives than to practice gratitude. When we recognize all that we have been blessed with in our lives, we can see that the root source of our blessings is connected to something higher than ourselves.
It is a very humbling and at the same time comforting to know that even in our deepest heartache, when we have been completely broken open, we can connect with the something higher than our own humanity. There is a flicker of light at the core of our being that can never be extinguished. This is a great place to start our gratitude practice from.

Time in nature
Something just magically happens when we spend time in nature. Without even trying we begin to feel connected with every living thing around us. We may not be cognizant of this “oneness”; we just know we feel better. Even if you live in a city, find a park where you can spread out a blanket and enjoy the open sky. And don’t forget to turn your ringer off.
Service towards others
Dedicating some of our time and resources to being of service to those in need has always been a part of spiritual traditions. The act of giving to those less fortunate immediately reminds us of all we have to be grateful for.
Taking a few minutes each day to connect with your highest purpose is a great way to attune with your spiritual nature. If you haven’t already, download my free Daily Attunement Guide as a resource to get started with your own daily ritual.
“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.”
Remember that the spiritual body is just one of the four bodies of health that we need to care for in order to live a vibrant and energized life. Please check out these other posts to get tips on how to take care of your physical, mental and emotional bodies.
