Spirituality and health are connected. Just as physical wellness describes health in the body, spiritual wellness describes health in the spirit. It is actually quite common to have questions about your faith. In fact, wrestling with faith will help make your beliefs stronger and even more meaningful.

Spiritual wellness can relate to religious belief. Some people link their spiritual wellness to the natural world. Others define it by their relationships to others. Still others may nurture spiritual wellness by living a fulfilling life according to their personal values.

However spiritual wellness is defined, it involves a connection between people and something greater than themselves. This could be a higher power, a person’s own sense of meaning and purpose, or values or belief systems.

The Therapist’s Role

Some individuals or families may be deeply committed to their faith and base much of their lives around spirituality or religion. Prayer, religious meditation, or some other aspect of spiritual connection may form part of an individual’s self-care and great as a coping routine, as might church or volunteer work in the community.

Spiritual beliefs can also play a significant role in one’s ability to cope with adverse events in life. Spiritual practices can:

  • Provide social and emotional support.
  • Help people find meaning and purpose in life.
  • Offer comfort in times of grief.
  • Provide ethical and moral guidelines by which some choose to live.

At Foundations Counseling, it is not the therapist’s job to tell you what to believe, but stand alongside as you work to understand and help clarify.
