Hi, babes! Today, I’m writing to you from my brand spankin’ new domain, ThatSpiritualChick.com.
For a long time, I’ve been feeling a rebrand for my blog and toying with potential names. I wanted a title that represented health, wellness, balance and alignment as well as a playful, irreverent outlook, and this morning it just came to me: That Spiritual Chick.
The name was free, so I tried not to question it too much and just took the leap. It feels so me, and I’m so excited to be taking this next step in my blog’s many incarnations over the years.
To christen my blog’s new name, I wanted to dedicate a post to what spirituality means to me. I feel like there are so many different interpretations and connotations surrounding the word Spiritual, and it’s often the source of much eye-rolling or silly memes, so I think it’s important for me to share my thoughts on it and how I’ve come to think about it.
Although the word spirituality may conjure stereotypical images (I won’t go into these too much!) or ideas about religion, to me, spirituality is all about one’s personal journey to self-development, growth and awareness. It means different things to different people because everyone’s experience of spirituality is different and unique, but to me, it’s all about moving through pain to become stronger, gentler and more conscious all at once.
More and more, we’re coming into an age of spiritual sovereignty, and figuring out what works for you has never been more valued in our culture. It’s beautiful to see so many different lifestyles being accepted today, and while we have a long way to go still, I love that we live in an age where you can choose to believe whatever you want to believe.
Spirituality represents so many different things to me, and I recognize that it means different things to others. Whether it’s gazing at a beautiful beach, dressing in clothes that make you feel gorgeous, or meditating to the sound of the rain, I feel as though spirituality extends to all aspects of our lives, and anything that connects you to your soul.
To me, being spiritual is about honouring yourself, your soul, others and the earth. It’s about thinking for yourself and doing the things that make you happiest without apology. It’s about taking responsibility for your life and your path, and living completely on purpose. It’s both fierce and gentle, dark and light, grounded and ethereal.
There’s so much fear and uncertainty surrounding spirituality, but really it’s the most natural thing in the world. You can choose your own spiritual path by making decisions that feel aligned with your highest truth, no one else’s. It’s about freedom, love and truth, and no one can take that away from you.
The idea behind this blog is to make health, wellbeing, happiness, and spirituality (whatever that means to you) accessible to the modern human. I hope to make it known that you can improve your life from wherever you stand, and you don’t have to prescribe to any thought, belief or practice you don’t vibe with.
You can choose your own path, make mistakes, look silly and have fun in this spiritual world. It really is all good.
That Spiritual Chick is a blog for free spirits, wellness junkies and anyone obsessed with soul expansion. If you have any ideas or requests for content going forward, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know.
I’m so looking forward to this new chapter, and I can’t wait to grow together. 🌿💗✨
