If you’re looking to drop any and all pretenses, go all-in with your faith as a way to boost your spiritual fulfillment, and glorify God in your everyday routines, you’re in the right spot!
A Holistic Faith Lifestyle recognizes the choices we have in our walk with God and responds by surrendering your entire self to God. Approaching God in this honest and holistic way brings your faith to life in every aspect of your life!
In holistic health, there are 5 aspects of life that contribute to your overall wellbeing.
In practicing a holistic faith, you’ll begin seeing God show up in fresh ways within every one of these aspects of life. What’s the trick? It’s that God has always been there. We’re the ones that need to show up and open up! Having an intention to seek God in all things is an eye-opening experience!
So whether it’s
- margaritas with friends,
- a solo hike,
- or hectic morning with the kids,
you’re fully aware your omnipresent God is there in the thick of it with you. Gone are the days of parceling out certain portions as “Mine” and “God’s”. It becomes obvious there is nothing you can hide from God. And greater still there is nothing you will want to withhold from God. You’ll see God is all in and want to be just as faithful in return!
Signs You Need a More Holistic Faith
I began pursuing a holistic faith when I realized not just how much I was struggling to keep certain parts to myself, but also how poorly I was doing in those areas. If I had uninvited God, that aspect of my holistic health was certainly lacking. That sense of unwellness presented itself in all sorts of ways.
- Not feeling present.
- Not acting like myself.
- Not always knowing who “myself” was.
- Experiencing emotional pain and even physical discomfort due to this inauthentic, dishonest living.
To fully step into my identity in Christ, I needed a whole new beginning with God! There was no middle ground. It had to be a full surrender.
Tools for exercising Holistic faith
Every Holistic Faith Lifestyle blog post, meditation, affirmation, and resource created here, is intended to equip you for a full surrender so you may walk in holistic Christianity. Seeing things in wholes and inviting God into the entirety of your life is what this site is all about!
When you surrender in full, rather than parceling yourself out, you become more spiritually grounded and feel more supported in every aspect of life. It’s a beautiful exchange.
The top ways I’ve found to include God in the ordinary routines of life are:
- Being honest with God about whatever I’m feeling, knowing it will never come as a surprise!
- Practicing Guided Christian Meditation.
- Speaking God’s Word over my life with Biblical Affirmations.
How It All Started
I’m Rachel Mayew, the all-in God-seeker behind Holistic Faith Lifestyle! My family and I love living on Florida’s Emerald Coast and can’t seem to get enough beach days or bike nights!
I’ll tell you, it was a rocky start, but God has done extensive work to soften my heart and strengthen my trust in Him. I’m an Enneagram Type 1, often referred to as the ‘Reformer’. My favorite method of reformation, no matter the subject, is digging up roots, looking for clues, and searching for holistic remedies.
I enjoy this combination of big picture and detail work which is probably why I love writing about Christian spiritual growth, guiding others in Christian meditation, and working as a Flower Essence Practitioner.
