40 Spirituality Quotes That Will Help You Explore Yourself
One of the best ways to get to know ourselves is by learning from other people. One of the most accessible ways to better understand ourselves is through reading the works, the studies, and the knowledge of other intuitive and sensitive souls.
We’re all on this Earth for our own unique purpose. We’re also all here to collectively figure out what each of our purposes is. This is why the words of others can be used as tools for growth, self-discovery, and a practical way to elevate your life.
Especially now, in the age of social media, it’s much easier to discover things that inspire you, educate you, and make you think in another way. Even the science behind why quotes are powerful talks about their ability to make you see yourself differently.
Quotes, or words in general, tend to have an innate ability to connect you with the thoughts of another human being. Therefore, this deep link you feel with a specific phrase can change your perception or inspire a new action. You may feel more empowered, you may feel less alone, or you may feel like finally someone out there gets you.
One of the first authors I have ever connected with in person, and who constantly still inspires me is best-selling author and intuitive dating coach, Nikki Novo. Nikki was also one of the first people who opened up my eyes to spirituality when I attended a few of her workshops years back in Miami.
When I reconnected with Nikki recently, I asked her about her perspective on words and why they’re so substantial to our personal journeys—especially when it comes to love.
“Words have an energy to them, so we can use them in changing our own energy. I especially love mantras that start with "I am" because it reminds me of how expansive we are depending on what words we put at the end.
Also, quotes are a good way to get you out of your day-to-day. They give you space to start believing and creating a new life. Maybe you don't have any positive influences in your life? By repeating quotes, with time, you can change your reality.”
I completely resonate with Nikki, and it’s part of why I save quotes on Instagram like it’s my full-time job. The quotes that have been inspiring me the most lately are around love and spirituality. These quotes quickly speak to my heart and sing to my soul. I’ll screenshot these quotes, save them, journal about them, or stick them in secret spots to find again later.
Why love and spirituality in particular? Because when it comes to love and spirituality, I think the two are very much connected. Their connectedness is best represented by a quote I heard recently from Swami Kripalu, "The highest spiritual practice is self-observation without judgment.” The way I interpret this quote is that loving our truest nature without justification is what being spiritual really comes down to.
I’ve been working on finding myself and becoming someone who loves versus someone just looking for love. I’ve seen where spirituality and love go hand in hand, and it’s right at the edge of vulnerability. I’ve done all of this work, but I wouldn’t have gotten to this crossroads without the help of inspirational literature and empowering figures.
To honor this, I’ve picked out 40 of the most powerful quotes—both old and new—on love and spirituality. I hope these quotes inspire you, move you, and help you connect to your true self.
