Many people think of spiritual and divination practices as helping with specific things like reducing anxiety, manifesting something into your life, and helping you to choose a path moving forward. But they can also help with your emotional state overall, allowing you to focus more on your thoughts and feelings, and improving your emotional wellbeing in time.
If you have ever looked into spiritual practices, particularly when it comes to manifestation or the law of attraction, you have probably heard of visualization. But even if you don’t believe in that manifesting, you can benefit emotionally by using visualization.
Visualization helps your emotional state by allowing you to visualize yourself being calm and relaxed. Any time you feel stressed or want to improve your emotional wellbeing, sit quietly in a meditative state, close your eyes, and imagine how you would feel if you were more relaxed.
Pull Tarot Cards
A spiritual practice that is becoming much more popular is using tarot cards. Believe it or not, the simple act of pulling a few tarot cards every day can help you be more intuitive about your life and help reduce stress caused by confusion or uncertainty.
You don’t have to think about tarot cards as trying to “read your future” or provide psychic insight. Tarot can’t predict your future; instead, you want to pull cards and use your intuition to help guide you in your life.
For example, if you have been dealing with emotional stress because of a career decision you are struggling with, you can set the intention that you want to pull three cards to help you with this decision. When you remove the cards, you can consider the meaning behind them, but use your intuition to figure out what it tells you.
Use Healing Crystals
There are quite a few healing crystals that can be used for your emotional and mental health. Crystals can help ground you, make you feel more calm and relaxed, improve your quality of sleep, protect you from other people’s toxic energy, and even help with stress and anxiety.
Here are some of our personal favorites for your emotional well-being:
Amethyst is the crystal for you if you have any stress or anxiety in your life. Keep it with you, wear amethyst jewelry, have amethyst crystals on your desk or in your car, and you can even put it under your pillow to improve your sleep.
People often use rose quartz for self-care and manifest love in their lives. But this positive energy stone can also be excellent for your emotional wellbeing, as it helps to activate and soothe your heart chakra and help ground you and make you feel more relaxed.
You might also want to get a selenite crystal. Among its many incredible benefits for your spiritual practices, selenite can cleanse you of negative energy that might be keeping you from proper emotional wellness.
Meditation is one of the most popular and widely used spiritual practices for emotional wellbeing. Still, you will also notice many other benefits when you begin this simple practice. While meditation can often be seen as a way to clear the mind, it doesn’t have to be complicated or overwhelming. When you are meditating, all you are doing is relaxing the body and the mind and momentarily not worrying about what is causing you stress or anxiety.
It can be as simple as just sitting for 5 minutes every day and focusing on your breathing. Thoughts may come in and out, and that’s okay. Just come back to the center and ground yourself while thinking about your breaths. An excellent way to focus away from your thoughts is to notice how it feels when you inhale and exhale, how your body moves, and allow it to relax you a little more every time you breathe in and out.
Lastly, don’t forget to practice gratitude! It is a highly underrated practice that can exponentially improve your life and mindset. Gratitude is also super easy to do, and only requires a notebook or journal and a pen. You can also write down your appreciation on any piece of paper.
Every day, make a habit of writing down what you are grateful for. You can write down as many things as you want, but aiming for 5-10 a day is good.
This can be absolutely anything you consider a blessing or are appreciative of in your life. This might be something small like your morning cup of tea or something nice that a neighbor did for you. Many days, you will have the same things on your lists, such as home comforts, pets, jobs, or families. Other days, something new might happen that you are grateful for.
The point is that you think about what you are grateful for in your life, why you are thankful for it, and you write it down.
