Recognizing Spiritual Burnout

Burnout happens when you are exhausted both physically and spiritually.  If you have constant stress or aggravation, you are at a high risk of being burnt out.

Spiritual burnout is different because it works on your spirit and causes it not to grow or rest.  This can be a busy schedule, not having time for your social life or yourself.  You need to have healthy spiritual and physical lives and you need to explore ways of keeping them in harmony with your soul and the universe.

You need to recognize ways that spiritual burnout can come on you and you need to recognize the different feelings that you have and the change of state that you face when you see your ego and actions.

Some signals include:

  • Being anxious
  • Not able to sleep
  • Tense
  • Need control

Burnout signals show that you have stress and that you need help from the higher power.  Some of these include:

  • Withdrawing
  • Depression
  • Hopelessness
  • Disconnection
  • Strain
  • Doubt

There are different factors that cause people to have spiritual burnout and this can be work or social factors.

There are different causes that start with people and some of this includes when someone wants to be perfect.  If you think you should be perfect, you are not allowing yourself a way to be supported.

Social factors can affect you as well.  If you have a lot of people giving you advice, you need to clear your mind and get a belief on what you really know and need.

Community can affect you and you need to find spiritual teachers and leaders to help you learn.

How can you heal?

The first way to heal is to lighten your load and to take quiet time for yourself.  You need to pray and meditate and be quiet.   You need to pray over dinner and before bed.  You need to find stress free activities to do.

Spiritual burnout can be in you and you need to look at your lifestyle and see what your daily life is like.  If you are having breakdowns and emotional attacks, you need to figure out how to get rid of this stress.

Seek support and find people that you can talk to.  Find a human that can help you to live your life freer and happy.
