Stress and Spiritual Awareness
Whenever I am feeling stressed and I need a mental booster, I look at God’s beauty for spiritual inspiration and encouragement. When you take the time to witness God’s natural beauty it will help you to reduce your stress and maintain your inner peace because you are reminded that there is a higher power at work in your life and all you have to do is align yourself with God’s plan.
#1 The Sky and My Spiritual Journey
Too often I get so caught up in my life, my affairs and the stress from my job that I forget to see that there is a bigger picture at work in the world. What helps me to regain my peace and become aware of my spiritual awareness is when I look up at the sky and I see so many stars that I can not even count them or when I attempt to measure the length of the sky with my eyes but I can not because the sky stretches as far as I can see.
When I search the sky and count the stars, I am awed by God’s awesomeness and I reminded that I too am a part of God’s plan. In fact, my inner [eace and my spiritual journey depends on me learning how to get in tune with God’s plan for my life.
#2 The Moon and Spiritual Inspiration
Moon watching also helps me to manage my stress. I enjoy looking at the size of the moon and how it changes phases from full moon to a half moon and then to a new moon. The moon is so huge and although it seems to be so close to the earth, it is so far away. When I look at the moon and the way that this great mass is suspended in the sky I am awed. I say to myself, that their is a Higher Being that is at work in this world and this Higher Being has a good plan for me and the world.
#3 The Ocean and Spiritual Meditation
Out of all of God’s natural wonders, the ocean is my favorite because of it’s roaring waves and it’s smell. There is something about the ocean that captivates me! I actually go to the ocean to pray and mediate.
If you have ever been to the beach, you can bear witness that it is a marvel how the ocean roars and yet it too is under God’s command. The ocean stops on point and does not cross the shore line. The ocean also helps me know that I am a part of God’s plan and that God’s plan is a plan of order. When I look at the ocean, I am reminded that my inner peace is going to be based on my ability to get in order with God’s plan for my life.
