Authentic-spirituality is a universal phenomenon experienced by many human beings all around the world. In other words, human beings have similarities; and in most of them, spirituality is the sense of common and the mysterious part of human nature consisting of a set of values, attitudes, and understanding related to the transcendental self, which directs it and deals with experiences that elevate it in other dimensions. There is spirituality in the inside and outside world of human. Therefore, spiritual is not only a dimension per se, but also affects other dimensions.
The importance of spirituality and the spiritual dimension of health in healthcare has considerably increased in the past decades.
The critical attributes extracted for spiritual health included transcendence, purposefulness and meaningfulness, faithfulness, harmonious interconnectedness, integrative power, multidimensionality, and holistic being.
Besides, the antecedents of spiritual health included capability and potentiality for transcendence, and spiritual awareness (spiritual vision and spiritual intelligence).
Spiritual Intelligence is the Intuitive knowledge of the Self.
We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.
