It's not about feeling special, but about being different in ways you can't quite put your finger on.
You engage with the world on levels that most people don't even realize exist.
The truth is that you may be spiritually talented without ever realizing it.
Some of us are born with a higher level of innate spirituality than others, which means that we have a stronger intrinsic bond with our spiritual self even if we don't practice it.
So, if you think you might be one of these people, have a look at these 13 spiritually endowed characteristics:
How can I see my spiritual eyes?
- Pray with your eyes closed. You don't have to close your eyes, but there's something about tuning into God's realm and shutting out the earthly sphere that allows us to see what He sees.
Be in prayer
Being in prayer is one technique to ensure that you are following God's plan for your life. Set aside time each day to focus on the Lord and His intentions for your life. If you surrender each aspect of your life to God, He will bless it and be able to work abundantly through it.
Be actively reading in the Word
It's one thing to go to church on Sunday and listen to the pastor's sermon; it's quite another to set aside time each day to be in God's word. Taking only a few minutes each day to study what God has written in the Bible will help you better grasp the calling God has placed on your life and help you live the life He desires for you.
Follow the commands He puts on your heart
Allow God to lead you and believe in the dreams He places on your heart. Believe that He will qualify you, and that if you have a dream that He has set on your heart, He will help you realize it, and in the process, He will be glorified.
Seek a godly community
When you have friends who encourage you in your walk with the Lord, it's a lot simpler to follow God's plans and act in ways that respect him. Seek out a church community that will hold you accountable and provide godly guidance.
Obey the Truth
Know what is stated in the Bible and live the way He has commanded. Follow the commandments and set an example of what it means to be a Christ follower.
Being an adult in today's modern society comes with its own set of obstacles and pressures, yet God qualifies us through our flaws, just as He qualified Moses to lead the Israelites and stand up to the pharaoh when He called him to do so. If God has placed a desire in your heart to return to school, He will equip you to do it. He'll be there to walk beside you and assist you in areas where you're lacking.

How does a spiritual person behave?
Being spiritual entails prioritizing self- and other-love as a top priority. Spiritual individuals are concerned about people, animals, and the environment. A spiritual person recognizes that we are all One and makes conscious efforts to honor that unity. A spiritual person is kind.
What are spiritual symbols?
If you're just getting started with yoga, studying eastern religion, or learning more about spirituality, you've probably come across a few symbols: the Om symbol, a chakra chart, and a lotus flower. So, what exactly do they all stand for? Here's a rundown of the meanings and histories of some of the most common spiritual symbols to help you meaningfully and respectfully incorporate them into your own practice:
What is the gift of vision?
People today are groaning for God's people to step forward, claim their rightful place in God's Kingdom, and step up to the plate. But how can someone achieve that if they don't even have a vision for their own life? Father God wants you to understand why you were born and what your true role is on this planet! For you, he has a destiny – a plan. I'm not sure how individuals exist outside of Christ's canopy when they are surrounded by hopelessness, uncertainty, moral decay, trauma, and dread. Just pay attention to the people in the post office or in the break room at work. There are a lot of people who don't have a clear vision for their lives and don't know how to get one. Others have a vision, but they are mired in a quagmire of confusion or past transgressions, unsure of what to do next. Then there are individuals who had a vision but gave up on it due to disappointment, failure, or discouragement.
So, how does a person regain their life's vision? Our life aren't some sort of divine experiment with a cruel God, but rather a Providence-directed mission to fulfill the precise reason you were born. God wants us to rediscover our passions and believe in our dreams. Your vision is waiting for you to take action! Let's take a closer look at this concept known as vision, which controls our own fate.
Ask yourself this question if you take a time to be quiet and take a fearless look at your life. Is your life a reflection of who you are and who you've always wanted to be? Are the folks who work next to you every day aware of the person you've always wanted to be? Maybe you feel like it takes everything you've got just to get through each day with your current responsibilities. Are you linked to the Source in such a way that you know exactly what you're supposed to be doing right now? Are there gifts and talents within you that you have yet to discover or have been dormant for a long time? What is your ambition? What is something you've always wanted to do? What do you believe God has called you to accomplish that you are currently not doing? Never give up on your ambitions! Vision is the ability to glimpse the future before it occurs.
God gave us vision so that we wouldn't have to rely solely on what we can see. Sometimes the terms vision and revelation are used interchangeably. To reveal means to reveal something that was always there but couldn't be seen from the outside.
Consider the following analogy. A spruce cone's destiny is to become a tree. You may see the tree within the seed if you have confidence. Because you recognize the seed's potential, you have a mental image of it. The same can be said of you and me. God created us for a reason, and it's already completed in God's eyes, because God sees us in the same way we see a spruce cone. He understands that He has given us the ability to see it through. Faith is the substance of what you aspire to achieve, the proof of what you can see when others can't. Your ideal is, in fact, your reality. Think about it! What do you notice about yourself?
I am convinced that if you don't have a vision, you will only rehash the past's disappointments and failures. As I counsel my clients, I occasionally see it. It's what we call “the comfortable.” Because it is all we have ever known, fear can lead us to embrace the same misery over and over again. As a result, vision is essential for breaking free from previous patterns.
Simply looking around will reveal that you are surrounded by people who are busy but not necessarily effective or satisfied. As a result, they spend their lives toiling away, following the same old patterns and never making any progress. Perhaps you have similar feelings about yourself.
Many people's dreams never come true because they can't make up their minds whether or not to pursue them. Long-term indecisiveness destroys one's vision and saps one's enthusiasm in life. People who can't make a decision are often the happiest people on the planet.
