Practical spirituality is simply what it says - the practical aspects of spiritual living.
Over in the new age spirituality section we look at some of the key terms and concepts which are fundamental to get your head around when you want to embark on a spiritual path or take your understanding to the next level. Many of them do directly impact your life on a daily basis.
Here, though, we're exploring the practical applications of your spiritual awareness and providing bits of guidance on dealing with life's challenges at a spiritual level. It's all interconnected so do check out other sections of Spiritual Encyclopedia to find further information to help you.

Getting Out Of a Rut
Now then, what about those challenging times in life, when things aren't going to plan or you're just generally feeling awful? It could be that you're experiencing a bit of spiritual warfare, in which case it's time to give some protection decrees or other devotions.
Chances are though that you're actually going through a period of spiritual testing. You can read all about how to recognise and handle a spiritual test here. It's happening every day so we might as well understand and get used to it...
How to tell right from wrong is supposedly one of those things that our parents and teachers taught us, or that we pick up from our own moral compass. I'm sure you've realised by now though that it's usually not that straightforward. Being able to discern the right-handed path from the left-handed path is a spiritual skill, born of intuition, that you can hone and develop in yourself and use to avoid the traps and enticements of the dark forces and keep yourself spiritually safe and on the upward journey back home to God (the ascension).
