Just as we have our own physical fitness level, we also have our own spiritual fitness levels – and these determine how energized, happy, engaged, and aligned we feel in our everyday lives.
To help you understand where you stand on the spiritual fitness scale, master energy healer Jeffrey Allen identified the six areas of “spiritual fitness” that comprise a meaningful life.
The 6 Muscles Of “Spiritual Fitness”
1. Spiritual Muscle
Our spiritual awareness can give a whole new meaning to our lives. Instead of focusing solely on your personal experience, your consciousness expands to include those of other planes; things we may not logically understand, but intuitively know.
IF IT’S STRONG: You know where you are going. You can let go of control because you know you’re being guided by something bigger than you. You feel connectedness, abundance, and peace.
IF IT’S WEAK: You experience unnecessary struggle in your life. you feel disconnected, lonely, and unfulfilled. You feel as if your life is driven by guesswork and lacks real direction.
2. Self-Awareness Muscle
Self-awareness is pivotal to the human condition. More than just being aware of our physical, mental, or emotional well-being, self-awareness means that we are truly awake; that we have consciousness.
Two Forms of Self-Awareness:
1. Location Awareness – Experientially discovering the “self” independently from your body, mind, and thoughts.
2. Time Awareness – Finding Happiness in the now, not the past or future.
IF IT’S STRONG: You feel in charge of your life. You know you are the driving force behind what manifests in your life, and you have the ability to change it.
IF IT’S WEAK: You feel like life is happening to you, rather than by you. You have feeling of hopelessness or despair. You feel like you have no control over your own life path.
3. Mental Muscle
Our minds are incredibly powerful and craft the way we experience the world. If we don’t actively use our minds well, they can work against us — without us realizing it.
IF IT’S STRONG: You are in control of our thoughts an , therefore, your own reality. You are present with others and have a awareness the world around you. Yo are open-min e and you filter out prejudice.
IF IT’S WEAK: Undisciplined mind can cause arrogance, stubbornness, & distracted thoughts. Your focus is wasted on unimportant and damaging thoughts because you haven’t harnessed the power of our mind.
4. Impact Muscle
Living a life of impact is important to all of us. Knowing that we are impacting others positively brings contentment, and the more we maximize this, the more we feel fulfilled.
IF IT’S STRONG: You know you are positively impacting others, and embrace opportunities that come your way. You have an outward focus of the world and how you can make a difference.
IF IT’S WEAK: You feel unfulfilled and bored with your life. You experience jealousy others’ achievements, feel overwhelmed by work. You hide away from success and play small
5. Emotional Muscle
Our emotional state affects all of our relationships with others and ourselves. When we are in touch with our emotions, we’re able to express ourselves more fully.
IF IT’S STRONG: You relish your emotions and how they are expressed. You enjoy all of your emotions, are empathic, and you easily build trust with others.
IF IT’S WEAK: You feel a lack of emotions, or alternatively, overly emotional. You may not understand your own emotions, or feel drama recurring in your life.
6. Physical Muscle
We primarily experience life through our physical bodies so it’ crucial to have a positive relationship with your body.
IF IT’S STRONG: You feel present, alert, and seen. You are coordinated, aligned, and not concerned with what other people think. You’re present and exited to be alive.
IF IT’S WEAK: You feel faint, weak, or detached from your physical body. You feel less coordinated — in your body, and echoing into your life.
