In the midst of an increasingly hectic world, spiritualism invites people to return to seek silence within themselves and bring more meaningful values.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has defined humans as psychological, social and spiritual beings . Meanwhile, many psychologists believe that spiritual intelligence is a factor that plays an important role in one’s mental health.

What exactly is spiritual intelligence or spiritual intelligence ? What can we do to build it?

Spiritual intelligence is a type of intelligence that is closely related to spiritual abilities that help a person to live a better life.

Having this ability allows us to unite spirituality, inner life and outer life .

The concept of spiritual intelligence is still new. Because of this, little empirical research has been done on this type of intelligence.

Even so, a study published in the Journal of Fundamentals of Mental Health shows that there is a link between spiritual intelligence and a better social life.

Meanwhile, several other studies show that there is a positive relationship between spiritual intelligence with a sense of empathy and satisfaction in life.

Not only that, this type of intelligence is also considered to be able to help people be better able to face difficult experiences, such as grief and loss. How to build spiritual intelligence Spirituality is a personal experience for each person. The way for someone to reach spiritual intelligence also varies, some do it with yoga, meditation, prayer, and so on.


After a long spiritual journey and much research, I’ve learned these 18 teachings that blew my mind wide open and made my life better. These have made a major difference in bettering my life and bringing me to higher consciousness. I hope they do the same for you.

I have been a grateful sojourner on the winding spiritual path for as long I can remember.

After rejecting the Catholic Church around age 10, I stumbled upon the love of my life—yoga-—at the critical age of 12-going-on-13.

I started reading New Age self-help books in college and met the Buddha in the San Francisco Bay area at 23.

Each stage along the way has been illuminating and necessary to move to a higher level of consciousness. I am thrilled to continue learning and practicing throughout this lifetime, at least.

At certain points in the past, I have wished for epiphanies, signals and sudden enlightenment. Of course, life doesn’t work that way. What we seek eludes us. Letting go allows newness to enter.

So, although I would like to gift you with these 18 teachings that have altered my mind and improved my life, they may not resonate with you. The most important teaching of all is that we are each where we need to be when we need to be there, learning the lessons that we need to learn.
