Click here to read about Spirituality, Healing and Living with Illness
Welcome. I have called this page Spiritual Blog UK as it occasionally shares time-sensitive information that relates to spiritual or religious programs on UK Television, or to spirituality events in the UK.
Most of the information is not UK specific.
I (Katherine Owen, author of www.a-spiritual-journey-of-healing) live in Swindon, England, UK.
Much of www.a-spiritual-journey-of-healing.com shares articles on spirituality, so please take a look around to see what speaks to you.
Do you know a couple in trouble with children or without. Or perhaps you are currently in trouble in your own relationship. Say a prayer for God to guide you to peace.
Move to read a full list of prayers on this spirituality website.
Why do those on the spiritual journey speak of surrender to God as a positive, even essential step.
What do we lose when we surrender, and what do we gain?
One common spiritual belief is that we are spiritual beings, rather than physical beings.
Read more about this belief and how it can bring purpose to our life.

The spiritual journey is one to claim our Oneness, to shift the emphasis from looking to another person to fulfil our need for love and company and look to God first.Click though above for the main article, or here to read quotes about loneliness to validate and comfort you.

Illness may initially seem to reduce your chances of finding either.
However, going deeper with spirituality in a time of illness can lead you to these, as well as to overcome fear and find self love.
Illness may tear your world apart, but a new world is waiting for you.
On a journey of self growth we may follow practices from psychology religion and spirituality or any combination of the three.
In the places where they differ, we may experience self conflict and confusion.
In this article I clarify a few of the differences so that in any instance you can more easily identify your favoured approach.
For the purpose of this site I give my own definitions of spirituality and religion. You are of course entitled to define them differently!

My message to you this Easter time.
The Bible verses on the Easter story and the example of Jesus encourage us to hold to love in a difficult times. To have faith in our innocence/our righteousness and to hold the same for others. A personal interpretation of the crucifixion story based on my experience of illness.
Some poems use Christian symbols and language to convey Christian Spirituality. I have now given these their own page on the site.
