It is an art of understanding what you are ,who you are, etc. When one rectifies his mistakes he comes to reality. When one understands his reality he comes to know what the spirituality is. Spirituality is the essence or nature of your relationships with yourself, other people, and your deity. A…nswer: Very often, we hear people say, "I am not religious, but I am spiritual." It means that the person is claiming that he is righteous because he is spiritual. Spirituality is a divine quality. Not everyone has it. Unconscious motive at sometime or the other guides all us humans. Our base nature is bound to rise and come to the surface of conscious to make us act as inhuman. Three things guide our human nature. First is animism, which is in our base nature. It is dormant in us. Base nature cannot make us act, unless something stirs us emotionally. The impulses from our base nature in our emotional state must rise to the surface of consciousness, jump across our nerve endings and make us act. Second thing, which guides all us humans, is conscientiousness. It is present in all human beings in various degrees. Conscientiousness is the thing that makes us all human. It gives us kindly and humane qualities. Conscientiousness gives us a sense of right and wrong. The conscious awareness comes to us only because of presence of conscientiousness. Absence of it would have made us no different to animals. Conscientiousness is not something that one can acquire by effort. It is an inherited quality. Our progenitors, who bring us forth into this world, confer it on us. It is the extract of their finest nature, which shapes our personality. Our settled mode of behaviour is due to the quality that abides in our genes and in our memory. To be spiritual the God's very own spirit must guide our conduct. The one who claims to be spiritual must have God's very own essence abiding at the highest level of conscientiousness. The one claiming to be spiritual would reveal God's very own presence in his conduct. He would be kind, loving, caring, sympathetic, patient and tolerant even in the most adverse conditions. (MORE)

Spiritual Healing is sometimes referred to as "Faith Healing" although this is not strictly correct. Young babies and animals have responded in the past to the ministrations of a Spiritual Healer. At other times, a healing result may occur on someone who has been placed on a healer's "Absent Healing…" list, by someone who has requested this. In many cases, the person who may be ill, or has a health condition, does not know their name has been placed on a healing list, so this obviates their knowledge of the fact. If this is so, then faith (on the part of the patient) is not relevant in such a case. "Absent" Healing is easily defined as "healing at a distance" where the healer cannot come to the patient. Animals in particular are very responsive to the special "power" of Spiritual Healing. A more traditional name for Spiritual Healing is "laying on of hands" and this can be carried out by any person who is inspired by the healing intention. In this way, no special training or religious "faith" is needed to gain a positive result. If the healer has a genuine and sincere desire to assist those who are ill or suffering, then in many cases, a patient will respond in a positive manner. Spiritual Healing has a definite set of predefined "laws of operation" although these do not necessarily fit into any "physical" modus operandi, or follow the laws of natural physics as we know them. This is simply because Spiritual Healing (and the results it is capable of in chronic illness and disease) works on a Spiritual level of operation. There are hundreds of well researched cases of so called "incurable" disorders that have been published in various books on Spiritual Healing. (MORE)

Spirituality is the belief in a soul or spirit and the relationship between it, everyday life and "what comes next" (if anything). Atheists can indeed be spiritual, as they simply don't believe in a deity, but can believe in another inner force rather than an external one.

you are mature when you finally begin to realise you can look after and care for yourself without the help of others constantly caring for you. This may be before or after you are 21 (which is what i would personally call an adult) but it is a very personal experience for each individual.
Spiritual psychology refers to a spot in the brain that has to deal with religion. Scientists have done some studies on religion that show that while religion may have a positive mental/emotional effect in the sense of well-being and self-esteem along with altruism, excessive religiosity can lead to… problems. Of those problems are schizophrenia, psychosis, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The disorder of schizophrenia may arise from the action of "hearing" a deity's voice and having "actual" conversations with it. Psychosis mainly involves hallucinations; for example, if you saw Jesus or another religious figurehead walking towards you . OCD can occur from that sense that you must be perfect in your deity's eyes in order to be granted access into heaven, and you thus obsess yourself with trying to be that perfect, sinless person. This can be tied almost directly to schizophrenia, because you would have to know what this god wants you to do in order to be trying to do it, mainly by having it tell you (of course, this is the case for only some). All in all, religion can have positive or negative effects on your mental/emotional health. And to directly answer the question aside from all the rambling, "spiritual psychology" is the study of the effect of religion/mythology/spirituality on the brain.

If you are a christian spiritual guidance is when you are guided by the Holy Spirit and not your own knowledge. Sorry, but your answer is predicated based on YOUR limited understanding of the word of God. It is as I have stated. Since God is my creator and I am his son then he speaks through al…l of his creation; including you and me. Please stop imposing your limited understanding of the word upon those who have spent their whole lives in understanding it. Again, my definition:" Spirituality Guidance is the art of leading individuals to observe, collate and evaluate the facts. It frees the individual from judgment and allows your spirit to truly be free. By utilizing facts and not opinions, an individual can become one with the desires of their heart. The ultimate goal is to actualize these desires through prayer, meditation and service." - Dean A. Banks, D.D; I suggest you pay attention to it. (MORE)
Let's look at the words to figure this out, yes? Spiritual: Something to do with spirits, religion, and/or beliefs. Assessment: A decision on something. Re: A prefix that usually indicates that something is being performed again. By putting these together, we can assume that "Spiritual Reassessmen…t" is making a new decision on one's beliefs. This usually happens when someone believes one thing (say, is a protestant christian), then goes through an event (like a life-or-death situation) which causes them to question their beliefs, and perhaps decide (REASSESS!!!) something about their belief is different from what they thought.

Maturing isn't always easy. To be mature you respect your friends and family and listen to your teachers. When someone irritates you, the mature way to go is to respond in a calm voice that you don't want them to irritate you or your trying to work or that you don't want to engage in a fight. Don't …expect to one day wake up and become mature. You will find out how over time. Just remember to obey your parents and teachers and to be polite. I hope you found this useful! :) -Kitt (MORE)

Spiritual husband is one who applies Bible counsels on marriage: how to treat his wife and children. Ephesians 5:28-33 states on this matter: "In this way husbands ought to be loving their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself, 29 for no man ever hated his own flesh; but he …feeds and cherishes it, as the Christ also does the congregation, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 "For this reason a man will leave [his] father and [his] mother and he will stick to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." 32 This sacred secret is great. Now I am speaking with respect to Christ and the congregation. 33 Nevertheless, also, let each one of YOU individually so love his wife as he does himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband."

In order to have a close personal relationship with our heavenly father, it is required to be a spiritual person. If we do not become a spiritual person, by studying God's word the Bible and praying to gain a relationship with him. An nonspiritual person is referred to in the Bible as a physical per…son, this type of person is only concerned with earthly things is alienated from God. See the scriptural reference at 1 Corinthians 2:11-15 - (1 Corinthians 2:11-15) "11 For who among men knows the things of a man except the spirit of man that is in him? So, too, no one has come to know the things of God, except the spirit of God. 12 Now we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that have been kindly given us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not with words taught by human wisdom, but with those taught by [the] spirit, as we combine spiritual [matters] with spiritual [words]. 14 But a physical man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know [them], because they are examined spiritually. 15 However, the spiritual man examines indeed all things, but he himself is not examined by any man."

Stagnation-Means to be inactive, stuck, or having lack of maturity (In other words not growing or maturing) To be spiritually stagnant is to be in a place where one is notgrowing spiritually. In the case of the Born Again believer, for anexample this is a place where they are no longer transforming …intothe image of Christ or growing in the knowledge of God's grace.Jesus wants every believer to grow and produce the fruit ofrighteousness which is Love, Joy, peace, Longsuffering..(Galations5:22-23) The most important fruit to mature in is love. Withoutgrowing in the love of God one could err towards their love for Godand others. This then opens the doors to decline in maturity inones spiritual walk. The fruits of the spirit is given by the HolySpirit and it yields everything that we as humans aren't born with.If someone who is a Born Again beliving Christian and is failing togrow in these virtues they could be spiritually stagnant. Thisisn't a guarantee but in the case of someone knowing the word andnot being a doer then they aren't growing or transformingspiritually. Christ said that the spirit is an eternal flame,it is not the spirit that would stagnate(strong word), a betterword is be static in low vibratory frequencies which happensthrough are thought, words, and actions and happens because ofkarma bounding us down as we grow mature in worldly ways thinkingwe can get ahead in life, creating beliefs , when it is the beliefsthat actually holds us back.

Yes very a cats eye tells everything . Whether cats are spiritual would depend on your beliefs. Some, such as Buddhists, believe that cats are the resting place of more enlightened beings. In Norse mythology, the goddess Freyja travelled in a chariot pulled by cats. Some people believe that cats ar…e capable of astral travel. The Druids believed that cats were human beings who were being punished for evil deeds. There was an ancient Egyptian goddess called Bastet who was a cat goddess, depicted as having a cat head. During excavations around Tell Basta in Egypt, cat cemeteries were discovered with thousands of mummified cats. Cats in ancient Egypt were often given a lavish lifestyle and you could be put to death for killing a cat. There are many beliefs, some old, some new, about the cat as a spiritual being. It is, however, a subject that each person decides what he/she believes. It comes down to religious/spiritual beliefs. (MORE)
I think that spiritually can only be measured internally. There is no way that it can be measured in acts or in words. Spirituality is deep in the heart and can not be calculated.
In the Bible: A spiritual person is one who has received the new life that is given to all who believe in Jesus Christ as personal saviour. Being controlled by the spirit is a necessary part of being spiritual. Spirituality takes time. Christian maturity is the growth which the Holy Spirit …produces over a period in time in the believer. Spirituality will be seen in a believer's: character - In his conduct the believer will imitate Christ attitudes - A spiritual believer will exhibit an attitude of thankfulness and an attitude of "endeavoring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace".

As in relation to the word of God. spiritual deformity occurs at the point when the word of God is being in grafted in your spirit. The bible say "as a man thinkest so is he" and the writer of 1st book of John says "what is born of God does not sin". The question can be "how many born Christians are… sinning today? yet the bible say what is born of God does not sin. when we got saved, a seed of God (word) was in grafted in our spirit. the spirit of God and the spirit of man are different so as male and female garment. Normally deformity occurs at fertilization and in the process of growth. True as the bible says "what is born of God does not sin" because God possesses our spirit through his words, our life operates according to the word of God. Now if a person has been saved but lacks information of God and still there certain thing that he understood as collect information of God but the truth is that the information was incorrect. The shall mean that the person will be trusting God is wrong way hence unable to operate full in spiritual realm. it his spiritual potential is as big as tractor tyre but his level of maturity is 2yrs of boy.

This is an answer the particulars of which must be personalized, but the general answer is this: 1. Repentance (stop doing evil): The first step to spiritual maturity is to stop killing that which we are seeking to mature, namely our soul. We must, therefore, stop sinning. Sin occurs when we know…ingly and willingly cooperate with or participate in anything that is evil. To proactively avoid sin is the universal and non-negotiable first step. To begin to grow spiritually does not mean we will never sin again, but it does mean that we detest our sin, desire it to be far away from us, and, when/if we fall, to quickly repent once again. 2. Conversion (seek and find the good): Repentance means nothing if one is not both repenting from something while, at the same time, converting to something. It is not enough simply to avoid evil; one must be actively searching for the good. This "good" is what humanity has always called God or the gods. Since the Good is good the Good has revealed itself to humanity for their benefit: that they might know and respond to the Good in a way that is pleasing to the Good and beneficial to all people. To this end, the Good has revealed that He is one God, not many gods; that He, the one, almighty God, has created all things, visible and invisible, and is, therefore, Father. He has revealed that, though He is perfectly one, because he is good, He exists in His oneness in a community of love between three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Most Holy Trinity. The Son, because God so loved the world, was sent by the Father to become flesh and take on the humanity that he so loved and desired to save from sin and death. This God-man is Jesus the Christ. By becoming like men in all things but sin, God (in the Son) enables men to become like Him (step 3). The Son, after completing his work of redeeming humanity from their sin (which allows step 1 to work), ascends to the Father who, with the Son, sends the Holy Spirit who provides for men to become like God (step 3). 3. Faith & Baptism (let the Good embrace you): Once we have found the Good and know Him for who He is (as he has shown us Himself), we must be born again, though not as we once were in the flesh and from our mother's womb, but this time in water and the Holy Spirit. Once we are baptized with water and in the name of God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we are made His son or daughter, united in adoption with His one, true Son, Jesus. The Father embraces us and calls us His own, His beloved. This sonship with the Father through Jesus in the Holy Spirit is not, however, a individual affair: we are baptized into the Church, which is the only proper way to be united to Jesus; He is the "head" and we are the "body." It is only by being united to Christ in this way that we can be known by the Father to be His sons and daughters. Baptism truly is the first and most necessary step to spiritual maturity, for it is only in baptism that we are born and enter into the intimate life of God who feeds, nourishes and matures our souls. 4. Prayer & Communion (how God feeds, nourishes and matures our souls): Just as a child, once born from his mother's womb, must be fed, first by milk and then, once he matures, with solid food, so too the soul. After baptism our soul is alive and needs the nutrition proper to it: grace. Grace is the stuff of our life, our relationship to God. We receive through the merits of Jesus' work on earth and by the Holy Spirit dwelling in our souls after baptism. So grace comes from these that we might live with the Father. We receive the graces Jesus won for us through the Sacraments of the Church (the first of which is baptism). These Sacraments connect us with the reality of Jesus' work of redemption and more fully integrate us into the Church, the Body of which Christ is the head. Without these Sacraments our soul would starve and we (the branches) would fall off Jesus (the vine) and would be lost. We receive the graces the Holy Spirit offers in two ways: first through prayerful communion with God by worshiping Him, not as we think is right, but in the way he has taught us to worship Him (in Spirit and Truth); and second, by responding to the Holy Spirit's promptings in us to extend the Charity of Christ to the rest of the body of Christ, the Church, and indeed to the whole world. So, to answer your question, "what are the steps to being spiritually mature?" First, stop doing evil. Second, seek and find the good. Third, place your faith in that good and be baptized. And finally, life in that life of baptism by first returning the charity God has shown you by worshiping Him correctly, and second, by extending that same charity to others. (MORE)
It is my firm belief that "Spirituality" is born in a person and then develops as time passes. However, it can be dormant and then kick-started by a religion, or maybe a revelation.

It's unique qualities are peace, love, joy, and happiness within. (MORE)
