How Can You Achieve Emotionally Healthy Spirituality?

Discovering Emotionally Healthy Spirituality


Emotional and spiritual health may be crucial to our well-being as individuals.

But what does it mean to have emotionally healthy spirituality?

While many people view the two as separate, they are constantly intertwined. Healthy emotional well-being sets the foundation for spiritual work, and strong spiritual health improves emotional well-being.

These aren’t separate realms; they’re more like best friends who bring out the best in each other. And we’re here to guide you through the simplicity of this relationship, making it easy to understand and apply to your life.

Join us as we explore the importance of cultivating the two and how you can do so using a holistic approach.

What Does It Mean To Be Emotionally and Spiritually Healthy?


Actively investing in one’s emotional and spiritual health involves:

  • Cultivating self-awareness
  • Managing stress
  • Fostering positive relationships

It’s about embracing emotions without attachment and finding balance through practices like mindfulness and breathwork.

Spiritual health signifies a deep sense of connection to one’s inner self and the universe.

It involves exploring one’s purpose, values, and a transcendent dimension beyond the material world and is fostered through practices like meditation, self-reflection, and embracing a holistic lifestyle.

Why Is Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Important?


Emotionally healthy spirituality may allow one to navigate life’s challenges with resilience and a sense of inner peace. By cultivating emotional well-being, you can approach the spiritual journey with clarity, free from the burdens of unresolved emotions.

Emotional health enhances the capacity for empathy and compassion. It forms a solid foundation for spiritual growth, as individuals can engage in practices like meditation and self-reflection more effectively when their emotional landscape is balanced.

The synergy between emotional health and spirituality creates a more profound and sustainable path toward personal development and a meaningful connection to the spiritual realm.

How Spiritually and Emotionally Healthy Are You?


Various signs may point to an issue with our emotional or spiritual health.

Someone who needs to improve in these areas may experience:

  • Persistent stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Low self-esteem
  • Physical ailments

The Role of the Seven Chakras in Emotional and Spiritual Health


The body has seven main energy centers, known as chakras, each related to certain aspects of our emotional and physical well-being. If chakras become blocked or imbalanced, it can result in physical, emotional, or mental pain.

The seven main chakras can be separated into three categories:

  1. Physical power
  2. Heart power
  3. Brain power

Once you understand the function of each chakra, you can better understand how your earthly experiences may hinder your spiritual existence and emotional well-being and clear and cleanse your chakras to enable a healthy flow of energy throughout the body.

At Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat, we use the practices and principles of Sun Tao to:

  • Activate free-flowing Qi (chee) energy
  • Release stagnant vibrations
  • Activate your chakras towards better mental, emotional, and spiritual health

Chakras 1-3: The Lower Chakras


The three lower chakras make up your physical world, including your body. When they are in balance, you can observe yourself consciously and stay grounded as you move through challenging situations.

The first chakra is known as the root chakra. Located at the base of the spine near the tailbone, your root chakra is the foundation of your physical body. It is an earth chakra linked to your ability to feel firmly grounded or rooted in yourself and the world around you.

The root chakra is bright red and is primarily associated with your fundamental physical needs — hunger, thirst, and shelter. It is also associated with certain emotional aspects, such as familial and social belonging and feeling safe, secure, and grounded.

The root chakra may become blocked due to one’s living environment being unstable or unsafe. This could be caused by war, poverty, poor parenting, or a traumatic relationship. Those with a blocked or imbalanced root chakra may feel disconnected from their earthly values. They might experience insecurity surrounding finances or their basic needs.

The second chakra is the sacral chakra. It is approximately two inches below your belly button, just above the pubic bone. This chakra is associated with the hips, lower back, bladder, and kidneys.

The sacral chakra is soft red or orange and is connected to sensuality, creativity, and energy flow throughout the body. It impacts your relationships with others and freedom of expression.

When the sacral chakra becomes imbalanced or blocked, you may experience issues with its associated organs, such as a urinary tract infection or lower back pain. You may also experience feelings of jealousy, uncertainty, or turmoil regarding your personal relationships.

The third chakra is the solar plexus chakra. It is about two inches above your belly button in your upper abdomen. The solar plexus chakra is yellow and is all about your relationship with yourself — your sense of purpose, self-esteem, confidence, and desire for recognition.

A blocked or imbalanced solar plexus chakra can result from issues with authority and may significantly impact your relationship with yourself and others.

You may experience feelings of self-doubt, mistrust, anger, or irritation. You may also find yourself forming unhealthy attachments to other people in your life.

Chakra 4: The Middle Chakra


The middle chakra includes chakra number four — the heart chakra. It is located at the center of your chest, just above the heart. This chakra is associated with the heart and lungs and is responsible for unconditional love, cosmic energy, and attachment.

The green hue of the heart chakra is associated with beauty, nature, and tenderness.

If your heart chakra is blocked or imbalanced, you might have negative thoughts or feelings about love. You might also experience distrust, unhealthy attachment, or detachment.

Chakras 5-7: The Upper Chakras


The fifth chakra is the throat chakra, also known as your soul’s gate. This is a blue-green colored chakra which is located in your neck.

It is associated with the teeth, jaw, thyroid gland, and mouth and enables clear and honest communication. Those with blocked or imbalanced throat chakras may struggle with self-expression, confidence, and clear communication.

The third eye chakra, your sixth chakra, is your connection to your inner self and the heavens that reside within you. It is deep blue and is located in the center of your forehead, just between your eyebrows.

This sixth chakra represents your inner knowing. If your third eye chakra is blocked, you may experience brain fog and a general lack of clarity.

Your seventh chakra is the crown chakra – which is your connection to “god.” In this case, god is your own divinity through the connection to the source or life source energy. This part of you represents your infinite potential, and all possibilities are available to you.

A person with a blocked crown chakra might feel a lack of coordination, confusion, or focus.

Developing the Chakras for Emotionally Healthy Spirituality


When people try to develop their spirituality, they often only begin by trying to develop their upper chakras (the head energy center). However, it’s not good to develop this area without grounding your energy first.

The first three chakras — the root, sacral, and solar plexus chakras — are grounding ones. Developing these first will help people to build a more solid foundation.

At Sedona Mago Center for Well-Being and Retreat, we advocate using breathing and tapping exercises, holding postures, and meditation to ground energy into the core. This gives whatever you develop in the upper (spiritual) chakras a grounded base.

How Are Emotions and Spirituality Connected?


In our practice, we talk about the three bodies — physical, emotional, and spiritual — that make a person feel whole. You can’t just focus all of your energy on one of them and expect to be happy, healthy, and whole. You need to work on all three. That is why we recommend a holistic approach to healing.

Understanding the 3 Bodies


#1: The Physical Body


Taking care of your physical body is an important part of establishing a balanced well-being.

You can improve your physical fitness with clean, healthy eating and regular exercise, which, in turn, can positively impact the development of the other two bodies — the emotional and spiritual

#2: The Emotional Body


To take care of the emotional body, one must form and nurture meaningful relationships with themselves and others. They must be able to manage emotions related to current or past events.

This can be achieved through meditation to shift your mindset and the energies surrounding you to a higher vibration and higher levels of consciousness.

#3: The Spiritual Body


The spiritual body refers to one’s innermost self, transcending the physical and emotional aspects, symbolizing a connection to the universal consciousness.

Through meditation and awareness exercises, you can connect to your divine inner self.

Finding Balance Between the 3 Bodies Is Essential for Emotionally Healthy Spirituality


Balance is essential to developing emotionally healthy spirituality. Just because you are strong in one area does not necessarily mean you’ll be strong in the others.

For example, getting attached to spirituality can potentially create emotionally unhealthy tendencies, such as comparing oneself to others or being a part of a judgmental community of peers who manipulate or move you to become a person you do not want to be.

It’s about complete self-awareness and not being attached to just one aspect of emotionally healthy spirituality.
