I’ve written before about introverts in the church. And I’ve talked about how spirituality is closely tied to being highly sensitive. But I haven’t really taken the time to ask all the innies in this ever-growing online community: do you consider yourself spiritual?
The reason I’ve decided to ask now is because I noticed that many introverts have some sort of spiritual practice that they do on a regular basis. I’m not just talking about prayer, or going to church. A lot of introverts are more “New Age” with their spiritual beliefs – you know Law of Attraction, Eckhart Tolle, meditation, mindfulness, chakras – that sort of stuff.
This makes sense since most introverts are introspective. The act of looking inward is closely tied to the search for meaning in life.
I haven’t talked a lot on this introvert blog about my spiritual beliefs, because well, I was afraid that you’d think I’m strange. But I think we’ve already established that I’m a weirdo, so I might as well come out of the closet about my spiritual beliefs.
I definitely fall into the New Age camp when it comes to my spiritual beliefs and practices. I live life intuitively, and use meditation, affirmations, and the Law of Attraction to guide me. In my world, anything is possible.
As an introvert, I find it difficult to express my beliefs to others. Perhaps you have felt the same way. It’s not in our nature to go around telling everyone we meet about or personal beliefs. Heck, there are people I’ve known for years who know nothing about my spiritual side.
So, what I’d really like to know is, are you a spiritual introvert?
Do you consider yourself New Age, or more traditional with your spiritual beliefs?
Is it difficult for you to share your spiritual side with others?
I’m really curious to know!
