When it comes to health, people often talk about exercise and diets. But, they often forget about an integral part of a balanced life, that is mental health. It refers to the psychological well-being of an individual. While there are a lot of myths about mental health, people don’t give any importance to spirituality in the same regard. Spirituality has a very significant impact on mental health. The most basic attribute of spiritualism is to know oneself and the person deep within. Since everyone, including you and me, are facing one or the other issue with mental health, especially given the current situation, it is imperative to find inner peace. Hz spoke to a spiritual guru, Shivatman Rudransh to better understand spiritualism.
“Spiritualism is the journey that one embarks on connecting the soul with the almighty. Our thought process has a big role to play in this regard. When we get stuck on a certain thought and are unable to think ahead or take a step back, it leads to clogging of our mind and often allows anxiety and negative thoughts to settle. That thought is somewhat like a poison and can be fatal for our mental health. The path of spiritualism cleanses our mind of such thoughts, thereby setting our mind and thought process free,” explained guru Shivatman.
Tips To Achieve Mental Well-Being
Keep Distance From Unattainable Desires
We all work hard and try to achieve our set goals in life. However, it often happens that people attain a lot of things, still, the desire of getting things that they couldn’t accumulate remains intact. And, when they do not get what they desire, their mental health gets adversely affected.
“The reason might be that the condition was not conducive to the fulfilment of the desire, but it ultimately resulted in the person not giving 100% towards the set goal. Such situations compel people to reach out to a psychiatrist or a doctor to get help, which is absolutely fine and sometimes necessary as well,” said the spiritual guru.
Know Your Strengths
There are also people, who do not feel satisfied with their therapies and sessions. In such situations, the path of spiritualism eventually helps in healing mental issues. “I believe in a slogan – Khud Ko Tu Pehchaan, Tujhme Hai Bhagwan (Recognise yourself, for the God is within you), so it’s imperative to know your strengths to overcome obstacles coming your way,” he suggested.
Try Identifying Yourself
We all have a certain image of ourselves in our heads. While some are confident and feel most of the time, that they are capable of achieving anything they desire, on the other hand, some lack that strong sense of identity. These traits are vital in order to feel secure and comfortable. This can only happen if you work towards identifying yourself completely, other than your strengths.
“When you get closer to yourself through spiritualism, you get to know your own cosmic energy. If your car tank is filled, you might go to any place of your choice. Similarly, when a person gets attached to the cosmic energy within, then their strengths get unleashed. In other words, spiritualism acts like the mythological character of Jamvant, who helped lord Hanuman recognise his strengths and overcome all obstacles en route Lanka,” he said.
“However, the road to spiritualism is no cakewalk. A matchstick needs to face friction with a surface to ignite the fire, and in the same manner, you need to face and overcome obstacles or unwanted situations that come your way to successfully embark on the spiritual journey, which resultantly makes your mental health fit and fine,” concluded life coach and spiritual guru, Shivatman Rudransh.
