Spiritual Fitness – Bringing it all Together

October 9th, 2012
parts of a whole

In Spiritual Fitness we have looked at how we experience and affect our energy system in four different ways: the physical body; the emotions; the mind; and the “spirit”. Spirit is an opaque term that is hard to define – for me, it is a catch-all for the aspects of us that lie beyond the other three levels. These aspects are by their nature transcendent and so beyond strict definition and knowing, but can be summed up as a higher state of consciousness.  For some

This is a big one in Western thinking and in modern spiritual writing.

The degree and nature of that effect will vary according to the type of practice, who we are, and what our intention is when using the practice. For example, working from the body up through Yoga has a different effect from working with Reiki which is more “outside in”, so to speak. By this mean I mean we are consciously bringing subtle energies into the physical body. Most forms of Yoga concentrate more
