Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Melissa Alvarez, author of Your Psychic Self, 365 Ways to Raise Your Frequecy, Animal Frequency, Believe and Receive, and the new Simplicity of Cozy.

Living a cozy life is much more than just making your environment comfortable and warm, more than the materialistic, and more than rushing through the day just to get things done. It is much, much deeper and more powerful than the things that we do. The spiritual side of living a cozy life is when we allow our connection to our soul essence and our spiritual path to become a priority in the way we live, the way we interact with others, and in our beliefs. When you’re aware of your own spirituality and unique gifts, not only is your life cozier, but you spread that balanced feeling of lightness of being, of joy and happiness, and of being part of the world to everyone you meet, which will affect them in a positive way.

Our soul connection to the divine is what makes us unique and special. The way we think about our spirituality and our divinity usually comes from a place of warmth, love, and caring while seeking out deeper understanding of our divine selves. This foundation of loving warmth is also the building blocks of cozy living. It makes us more spiritually aware; urges us to seek out the cozy within our spirituality; and presses us to make changes to improve our lives, our surroundings, and the way we think so we can experience more coziness. This results in calmness, peace of mind, and positivity in everything we do. Once you’re aware of the ways coziness presents itself then you can acknowledge it and appreciate it, and through its discovery experience spiritual growth. Your spiritual self naturally wants to attune to the frequency of cozy because it is more harmonious and in sync with your divine being.

Once you recognize the benefits of cozy living, you’ll probably start making changes right away. Beginning with a clear vision will help you create a plan to add more coziness in your spiritual life, in your home and work environment, and in your relationships with others. Caring, compassion, selflessness, and love are all important aspects of the spiritual side of cozy living. When you embrace these feelings in regard to your spirituality, the way you relate to others, and how you want to experience a cozy life, you can bring about real transformations.
