Developing Your Spiritual Intelligence

Developing Your Spiritual Intelligence

To grow spiritually, what do you need?  To develop your spiritual intelligence.

But what actually is spiritual intelligence and how do you develop it? To start, recognize that there are four basic kinds of intelligence: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Also there are some variations and offshoots of different ways to categorize intelligences.

Most people think of IQ as just mental ability, the kind of thinking taught in school. It focuses on memorizing and analyzing. However important this function, it is just one kind of intelligence that can be developed.

There is also physical intelligence, which starts from birth with your body’s development. It includes movements, spatial ability and body awareness.

An important note here is some people are more gifted with physical intelligence, as with any of the other intelligences.  For instance, one person can be a handy-person or more athletic than many others.

Then there is emotional intelligence. This means being aware of your emotions and managing them, which includes relating to others. Those who are emotionally adept may be more empathetic and sociable with others.

Here’s an example of emotional intelligence: What am I feeling now?  Frustration… Okay, maybe I just need to accept that and sit with it for a moment. Maybe I need to take some deliberate action.

In short, you are aware of your emotions – how they affect you and others.  Also note that each of the intelligences requires study and practice to develop.

Spiritual Beings

Although we all are spiritual beings having a human experience, spiritual intelligence takes some time to emerge. First, you need to develop some emotional intelligence for self-understanding and self-reflection. Emotional awareness includes being able to interact well with others.

For a spiritual intelligence overview, let’s look at four key areas where it can blossom and grow to enrich your journey of awakening. And you will blossom as you develop your spiritual intelligence.

The Biggest Myth about Life Purpose

[Note: This is an updated article originally posted in March 2015]

Many people are much closer to living their life purpose than they think. Yet there’s a myth that can blind us to our deeper purpose …

The faulty thinking goes something like this: “I just need to know exactly what I’m here to do. Then when it’s clear to me, I can successfully live my life purpose and fulfill my mission.” Here’s the problem. Your purpose isn’t an exact thing to do. It’s not one narrow, fixed task you are meant to accomplish.

Let’s explore this myth about life purpose a bit more so we can be free from its spell.

Why Your Life Purpose is So Important

Your purpose creates a a life rich with meaning and connection, for yourself and others’ benefit.

In short, your purpose is precious and invaluable. Let’s examine five crucial parts of being on purpose and the wonderful life it will create for you.

How Much Bliss Do You Have?

How blissful are you? And for that matter, what is “bliss”?

Like happiness, bliss can be a feeling (“I’m feeling blissful”) as well as a state of awareness (“I am in bliss”).

Joseph Campbell, renown scholar and author, famously gave the advice to “follow your bliss.”  He connected this intention to the hero’s journey and following your deeper passion.

To put things in perspective, a blissful journey sometimes is fun and spontaneous. It can also involve challenges, with no easy fixes or instant gratification.

In this context, following your bliss means engaging your body-mind-spirit with goals larger-than-self.

The Alchemy of Bliss

Let’s examine further the different, jewel-like facets of bliss. Bliss is a transcendent flow – it allows you to let life flow though you. It’s a heartfelt mixture of happiness, joy, wonder and more.

Bliss also has a strong unconditional element to it. It’s not conditional, like “I’m only happy when I’m ____ [with my friends, partner, family].

Yes bliss recognizes preferences — but does not get attached to them: “I’d prefer being with him, but I’m good being by myself now.”

Bliss is the master converter and alchemist, truly making lemonades out of lemons. It also savors the sweet moments, the triumphant moments, and the quiet moments.
