Today’s episode I discuss how a spiritual practice can improve relationships with others and self, how it can help your daughter, what it is and what it is not and intuition. I love having this type of conversation with clients and others about their spirituality and their inner knowing.

What is a spiritual practice?

  • Spiritual practice can include religious practices
  • Morality deals with issues of right and wrong
  • Ethical system set of values or beliefs and how we conduct ourselves in social scenes or relationships
  • Spirituality is the inner knowing, connection to universe or higher power, higher awareness
  • Maslow hierarchy of needs-used the terms “physiological,” “safety”, “belonging” and “love”, “esteem”, “self-actualization”, and “self-transcendence” to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through.
  • Investing in yourself is supporting your mind, body, and spiritual self
  • Journaling, meditating, chanting, taking walks in nature, body movement are all spiritual practices

Why role model this to your daughter

  • When young girls or women see their parents practicing “being” vs “doing” it helps give themselves permission to slow down
  • Encouraging your daughter to have a spiritual practice can help maintain a connection to her own intuition and self-assuredness
  • Can decrease the perfectionism or people pleasing behavior
  • Can assist her in staying true to herself vs needing approval from others to follow her life’s path
