I was noodling around on the Google keyword tool with a business coaching client the other day, and I discovered that 2,740,000 people per month Google search “How to be spiritual,” which kinda blew my mind. It made me think of my 5 year old daughter Siena, who we’re pretty much raising as a Buddhist who loves Jesus. My very Methodist mother wanted to take her to church one day and Siena, who knows how to meditate but hasn’t spent much time in Sunday School, said, “Nana, I don’t know how to do God.”
Apparently, 2.7 million people feel the same way.
So I challenged myself to try to write a series of posts that answer this question, but can you really teach someone how to be spiritual when it’s so personal? I don’t know. If you are trying to tap into a Higher Power and aren’t sure where to start, let me know if this helps.
Disclaimer: Keep in mind that this post is about how to be spiritual - not how to be religious. You’ll have to go elsewhere to read about doctrine, theology, or religious texts.

What if I told you caring for your body was the LEAST important part of your health? Watch my TEDx talk here to learn the MOST important part (and, yes, it involves spirituality.)
