This wellness concept has been catching on locally, nationally and globally like wild fire. It is not a fancy, a «new toy»one wants to play with. It is much more. It is a real, true and concrete concept that is rooted in the experience of so many and the research and scientific knowledge of our modern world. It has been defined by the WHO and encompasses the three aspects of who we are: mind (emotional and cognitive), body (physiological and anatomical), and soul (religious). I have yet to talk aboutsoul, which is why this article will tackle the subject. Make no mistake, I am not a religious figure, nor am I a Holy woman trying to inspire or preach or even guide you on your spiritual journey. There are Holy men and women for that. I am also not addressing the type of faith you have, for «to each his own». Rather, this articleis about the power and the benefit of feeding your soul. And that, my friends, happens through religion, prayer and soul searching.

No matter your religious faith, all religions preach that when you become closer with your Creator, you become more serene, stronger, happier, calmer, and better equipped to face this world and the coming one. All the teachings state that in order for you to live by the laws and norms of your Creator, you need to study them, practice them and follow them. Another key constituent is prayer.

Our soul is the one that benefits from being in touch with our Creator. It is the one who all religious practices will ultimately benefit when we pass to the next world. If our soul was a checking account, our currency would be good deeds, obedience and prayer. It would be less of this world and more of the other world.

Hence, when we die, we die very rich in heavenly values and expectations. I apologize for the use of a checking account as an example, but it is only to make a point clear. But this article is not about the benefits of the soul when we die, it is about the benefits when we are alive!

Take a look around you. There are people in your circle of friends, relatives and co-workers who are especially pious. These are the ones who never miss their prayer schedules, go to extra religious activities, pray constantly, are meek and seem to truly live the word of their Creator. How would you describe them? Certainly anger, pessimism, irritability, frustrations, incapacitation, sad, weak and depressed are not expressions you would use. Instead, words like happy, calm, serene, positive, carefree, strong, solid, joyful and steady come to mind. Why? Is it because of who they are or what they do? The answer is both. I am not talking about their

genetic make-up, I am referring to what they do. They pray and are what we refer to as «religious».

So how does it work? Prayer and living a «religious» life and nurturing the soul? Well, the answer is simple, and complicated. But is that not the life we live in? Praying makes us feel closer to our Creator. True praying that is! Uttering mere words repetitively without living them is not prayer. With prayers, we feel the Creator’s presence, we have His attention, and we feel comforted by Him. If you believe your earthly father is the strongest person in the world, and he is always by your side, how does that make you feel? Strong or weak? Vulnerable or indestructible? By developing a sense of confidence and an aura of strength, one’s abilities immediately improve. These abilities referred to are his or her cognitive abilities, his or her perception of obstacles changes with a more challenging attitude. There is an increase in the ability to not only «believe» one can take on more challenges, but that one can conquer them. All of us would shy away from what we are afraid of and believe to be an impossible task. But when that which we believe is unattainable and fearsome is no more present, then our limitations decrease and our potential increases:  The power of  confidence through prayers and a strong soul. Prayers help improve both the conscious  and  subconscious  part  of  our  mind. People  who  pray and live a religious life feel less anxious (which is a feeling that comes from both parts of the mind). They are more at ease and more confident, again, thanks to both parts of the mind being affected. The mind is more restful, sharp, confident and affirmative

 

It is better equipped to not only define goals but to achieve them!

What about the body? Does it benefit? When we feel confident and

calm and able, we are also taking our mind on this beautiful jour-

ney of strengthening its abilities, being better able to take care of

it and being able to avoid harmful issues and practices (smoking,

alcohol, obesity, non-compliance with medications, exercise etc.)

Feeling in control allows us to do just that: be in control!

The last part I wish to touch upon is love. I have often, many times

actually, talked about not love for each other but love of ourselves.

You have heard and seen and read me asking of you to love yourselves.

By loving yourselves, you become that much more powerful in achieving your goals and seeking them. Guilt my friends and feeling unwelcomed in your own body are two very destructive forces that eat away at our very core and weaken our foundation. We become useless and incapacitated in many ways. We stop living and often fail to reach our potential, which is limitless. In short, our spiritual health will have a significant impact on our emotional health, which will have a major influence on our physical health. The inter-connection between the spirit, the soul and the body is certainly a complex connection; nevertheless, the connection is very real. Many of us are affected by how we handle the stress that life brings us. If chronic stress is left unchecked, over a period of time our  bodies will take a toll. A strong faith can help us to cope with the stress that we experience in our life and enable the impact of that stress to be less significant. Without a strong personal faith we must resort to our own resources to cope with the stress present in our  life. Often we attempt to cope with this stress through addictions and other methods of escape. This behavior can further exacerbate the effect of stress on our physical health. A strong personal faith can be a resource that helps to manage stress.

Our beliefs and attitudes are determined in a large degree by our  faith. They play a major role in our thinking patterns. Our day to day thinking will have an impact on our emotions and feelings, and our emotions and feelings will have a major impact on our behaviors. In this regard, our thought patterns play a significant role in our emotional and physical health. If you believe, you can do it. And you know what, you can! That is the power of prayer and religious lives.
