Spiritual illness seems like a serious state of being, but in actuality, it is a positive predicament. Spiritual illness signals the need to clarify for oneself beliefs and convictions. When spiritual illness is approached as a wake-up call, it can be the first step towards more focused living.
Spiritual illness can lead to study about religious beliefs, study about spiritual lifestyles, study about earlier civilizations, and study about meditative practices. All studies that lead to increased spiritual connection are positive—as long as the study does not lead to a sense of right or to a belief that one’s chosen way is better than others.
Understanding the cause of the spiritual illness is helpful, and the cause can help determine the “cure”. Allowing the spirit to be ill is not harmful as long as the illness does not lead to depression. Spiritual illness is a call for change that can be realistic and immediate. The move from unwell to very well can be relatively quick.
The main step towards cure is understanding the cause of the illness. After that, the road to recovery is simply a belief away!
