how did you regain a sense of spirituality? What do you do now that helps you to feel spiritually filled?

For me, I felt organized religion to be too formal and impersonal. I rarely felt a connection. It has always been when Im alone or having philosophical, ideological conversations with friends that I felt more spirituality. I dont get nearly as many of those conversations anymore but I do feel more intune when I pray, meditate, and read my cards. Which reminds me... I need to do that. I havent touched them in quite a while.

I always felt spiritual. I never really lost it but I never truly understood it either.I'm a part of the Divine and the Divine is a part of me.
My biggest obstacle was letting go of the guilt and feeling I was going to hell. That took a couple of years but I was reading and internally talking to the Divine establishing a new connection. It brought me such peace and joy that the pangs of guilt and fear that hit me weren't as strong. I realized once I stepped out of my prettily decorated box there was a huge world that I'd never seen before...My new journey started then.

Not look at conventional means of becoming spiritually filled and asking myself what things would make me happy spiritually......and then doing them!

I was never part of mainstream religion, but ^ is what I do when I'm trying to come out of a funk.

I struggled for a long time to feel connected to God...trying different Christian religions, but finding my spirituality and that connection came when I finally realized "God" wasn't in any of the "religions" that I had been to looking/searching...Spirituality is everywhere around me, in everyone around me, I am a spiritual being...not the doctrines of organized religion...I notice life on a deeper level, am more thankful for little and big things on a daily basis, and generally am in awe of the connection of everything. Realizing these things, acknowledging them, being the person I am...all of these are what keep me spiritual. Having friends like the ones here and on the PL board helps when I have a question or just feel like I want to talk to someone who understands and doesn't judge.
