Take a class or go to events that can expand your spiritual awareness. Take a yoga class and if you already do then try out a different system. Listen to an author speak on spiritual topics, go to a wellness expo, find a group that night hikes. Do something different and meet new people. Get out of your day-to-day rut and open up to your creativity. Have fun with this!
