Spirituality is often associated with a deeper connection to the natural world. However, there is no fixed meaning or rules, so you can adopt it into your life however you choose. Typically, spiritualism encompasses an exploration of universal themes, from love, wisdom, and compassion to altruism, the afterlife, and understanding truth. It encourages a reconnect with the natural world and a belief in a higher power.
