When we feel spiritually connected, we feel peace. But life has a way of insinuating itself into even our most intimate spiritual moments. Whether you’re a Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim or Pagan, there are times when life’s little (and not so little) hassles seem to throw you right off into the left field of the human condition – far away from Divine Grace.

So what can you do when the not-so-spiritual aspects of life have you ready to cuss like a sailor or throw in the towel? Try daily positive affirmations for continued spiritual growth. Below are some ideas to get you started. Give ’em a try and see what you think!
