How Do Quotes From Spiritual Books Benefit And Help Us?

spiritual quotes

1. Spiritual Quotes Train our Minds To Allow God Access



Spiritual verses from holy books can train our minds and spirits to allow God to talk to us directly.
We meditate on the words and fall through the gaps into a first-hand experience of His love and wisdom.

2. Spirituality Quotes Help Us Claim a New Reality

Spiritual quotes can also be used to claim a reality we do not yet experience.
This can be an extremely powerful practice if the words from our holy book are taken as a promise from God.

This links with Law of Attraction work to manifest changes in our lives.

Claiming scriptures has been a huge part of my journey to survive and recover from 14 years of severe illness with ME/CFS.

3. Spirituality Quotes Give Spiritual Food On Our Journey

the lord is my light

Just as we need to feed ourselves physically, so we need spiritual food.

We can set aside time each day to use spirituality quotes to raise our faith for peace in a particular situation.

Or simply to feed our spiritual connection.

4. Spirituality Quotes Validate Our Own Spiritual Journey

In many ways I am glad I did not read so much of these holy books in the years when I was most deliberately allowing myself to hear God's voice and channel it through my poetry.

It was such a joy and a validation of my journey to discover how easy it was to find spirituality quotes that matched my own spiritual adventures and insights.

They let me know that I was on The Journey - the journey we are all on, rather than on a journey.

They assured me that it is not all in my imagination as we are all listening to the one voice.

When you read spiritual quotes, you may get that aha feeling!
Something resonates with you. You know the truth of it.
Knowing someone has walked the path before you helps you to keep walking the spiritual path.


How To Use Spiritual Quotes

It took me many years to get more benefit from spirituality quotes.

Due to illness, I was forced to spend huge amounts of time in silence. I couldn't read much or do much and silent still pastimes were hard to find.

I eventually realised that spirituality quotes and prayers were a perfect way to discipline my thoughts and use the time well.

Tips On How To Use Spirituality Quotes:

1. Write down your favourite spiritual quotes - somewhere you will see them.

2. Set aside a time each day when you will read your current quotation.

3. Think ahead to a time when you think you might lose your sense of peace. Decide which quotation will help you shift your perspective back to peace.

4. Learn your spirituality quote by heart if possible.

5. If you mislay your peace, silently say the quote to yourself.

6. See if you can remember to smile (maybe inwardly) for a moment at the drama of your life :-) You are being the observer and are not quite so lost in the story of it all.

7. If you realise the moment has gone and you have forgotten to say your spirituality quotes, forgive yourself.

8. Imagine the event and imagine you had remembered your spirituality quotes.
Even though you didn't do so, this counts as practice and sets up your mind to remember next time!

9. Sometimes using spiritual quotes can stir up our life in unexpected ways. If it seems that things are getting worse...
take this as confirmation that this quotation is calling changes into your life. Keep saying it even when it seems to be the least true!

10. Be gentle on yourself. You are using these powerful spiritual truths to create a space in your mind within which God can make all things new.

Why do my books include spiritual quotes from only The Bible and A Course In Miracles (ACIM)?

I very much believe there are many paths to God.
Indeed, for a number of years I was not committed to any particular path. Why then have I included only spiritual quotes from the Bible and ACIM?

1. My knowledge of other spiritual texts is more limited.

2. I have moved forward more consistently on my spiritual journey since focussing on only two paths which, for me, are compatible. The spiritual journey is not easy. If we keep switching between paths, there is a risk we will circle the base of the mountain without ever going up. Both through ACIM and the Bible, I follow Jesus.

3. With regard to reading Bible verses, I have experienced unexpected benefits that I believe others might share.

I have become aware of how much the Bible underpins British society. As I have learned to admire and love it, I feel I have not just made peace with Christianity, but also – to some extent – with my history and culture.

This may be true for anyone in a country based on Christian principles. It may be all the more important for someone whose culture has suffered at the hands of Christianity.

At the moment, the Bible triggers many people who have difficult experiences of religion growing up or who have been prejudiced by the media. The Bible is not in fashion!

It is currently more fashionable in the West to read Buddhist quotes or Hindu verses, though the readers do not feel the need to consider themeselves Buddhist or Hindu.

I hold a place for a time when people feel free to read the Bible whatever their spiritual path. It is an amazing book.

I spent years doing general affirmations - I still do so.
However I find that claiming health and claiming abundance through bible verses
is far more effective. I experience these words as having an innate power.

When I read these bible quotations I have a sense of joining my mind with all those millions who have said them down the milennia as well as all those who claim them now.

4. With regard to the spiritual text of A Course In Miracles, many people have not yet heard of this wonderful book and/or may be equally prejudiced against it. It has been a huge gift on my spiritual journey. It is my pleasure to introduce it to you.

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
