Spiritual bloggers are some of the most important people on the internet. Every day they’re creating inspiring content that connects people to their deeper, spiritual selves. I know firsthand from the countless hours I’ve poured into TheDailyMeditation.com, that creating a great spiritual blog takes time and dedication. That’s why I’ve created this list: a list of the absolute best spiritual blogs. It’s a way to say thank you to my fellow bloggers.
Okay, before I get into my list of the best spiritual blogs, I have to apologise to some people.
Because of course, not everyone can make it onto my list. That would make it redundant. Some friends and colleagues are not on the list. And for that I feel pretty guilty.
But heck, when you’re asked to create a list of the absolute best spiritual blogs, inevitably a few people are going to be left out.
You guys know I still love you, right?
Now then, in creating this list I’ve included blogs that I myself personally read, and blogs that I always share on The Daily Meditation’s Facebook Page.
As you know, I really don’t follow the regular “Trending” / “Pop” articles (I’m less Real Housewives, more Thich Naht Hanh)–I like to promote deeper stories that make you think. No, surprise, given that I have written such articles as:
That’s right, I prefer my articles to be deep. So with that in mind, all the spiritual blogs I’m about to tout are deep, intellectual, and take spirituality seriously.
The bloggers I’m about to share have done wonderful work. Reading them is like taking a masters degree in spiritual psychology, they are that deep. They’ve covered everything from spiritual healing to revieeing the best psychics, to offering online counselling. And along the way they have shared some amazing stories about their lives. So I really do hope you enjoy them.
In the list I’ve put the blog name, link, and a little excerpt because I wanted to share how good some of these spiritual online writers are.
Let’s take a look.
And even if we somehow missed your blog in our list, you can still show the “Proud To Be A Spiritual Blogger Badge!” .
These Are The Best Spiritual Blogs
The Mindful World
The first thing that caught my eye about The Mindful World is just how beautiful their site design is. And I am currently redesigning TheDailyMeditation and sites like this one truly are an inspiration.
It takes more than just good looks to be included in this list of the best spiritual blogs, though. And, indeed, The Mindful World has a lot of depth behind that pretty exterior.
The Mindful World is a group of individuals who are passionate about spreading mindfulness around the world. Their articles are very in-depth and some of the most professionally written pieces on any spiritual website.
Excerpt from CONFRONTING REALITY: The lie of Evidence-Based Treatment and how it affects psychological therapy for abused children
“The scientific process is supposed to be the golden standard for the pursuit of knowledge and truth. When asked to think of a scientist, many people will imagine a somewhat “nerdish” individual who’s often more comfortable with numbers than people.
We imagine these scientists as being wholly dedicated to their research and unwavering in their pursuit of the truth. The idea that many published scientists are heavily influenced by politics, that scientific journals often compromise their standards for publications, and that many universities look the other way to secure federal funding, often comes as a shock to most people.”
Change Your Energy
Change Your Energy is a site about spiritual healing. It reads like a self improvement site, packed full of excellent advice on articles on all manner of self development topics. Every article is full of spiritual guidance and offers inspiration for developing your spiritual life. Change Your Energy is is also one of the most professionally presented spiritual blogs.
My favourite excerpt : From the article “Sing As If Speaking, Dance As If Walking”
“Do you pick up your smartphone, look for people to chat with, or go to the TV or Internet because time alone is lonely, strange, or difficult? You can be a wonderful friend to yourself, incomparably better than any person or any machine.
Here is a suggestion for enjoying spending time with yourself: Sing and dance for 30 minutes every day. Try to sing as if speaking and to dance as if walking.
Enjoy being immersed in yourself, regardless of what other people think. The time you enjoy spending with yourself is time for changing your energy and for accumulating energy. You can encounter your soul as you sing and dance.”
Mom On A Spiritual Journey:
Mom on a Spiritual Journey is the blog of Sarah Lawrence Hinson. Sarah gives spiritual coaching sessions and writes articles about both her personal life and about spiritual energy.
My favourite excerpt:
From “6 tips for driving your car as a spiritual practice”
“MAKE YOUR CAR A NO PHONE ZONE LIKE OPRAH SAYS. I’ll be the first to admit that I am useless at using a phone and driving, in fact I’m a downright danger so don’t do it at all. Just because you might be better than me doesn’t mean you should do it too though. If the phone rings and I am alone, I pull over if I know I’m waiting for an important call. If you work a lot on your phone, get hands free…it’s not the greatest idea but it could save your life. If I have the girls in the car then they answer the phone for me. When it’s their turn to learn to drive, texting and driving will not be acceptable because I DON’T DO IT!”
Spiritual Awakening Process:

LINK: SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
Favourite Except: From “Awakening”
“Life inside the awakening is a whole other beast. Many people focus on the singular point of awakening, that amazing “Ah-ha!” moment. However, while that is a critical piece of the awakening process, so is the transition from sleep-mode to every moment awakeness. The awakening ushers in a time of transition that is unsettled, unstable, and unique. It is a time of embracing new and amazing parts of you and then trying to crawl right back into bed. It is a time of expansion and contraction as you grow and then shrink back to the core issues that are still unresolved and holding you back.”
Not Strictly Spiritual:
Not Strictly Spiritual is a blog all about finding spirituality in everyday reality. on the site, catholic blogger and author Mary DeTorris Poust talks about how faith helps us out with everyday life. Poust talks about her own experiences in using faith to overcome self image issues and eating issues. Her articles are full of wisdom certain to enlighten readers.
Favourite Excerpt: From “A perfectly timed novena. St. Catherine, pray for us.”
I woke up this morning and noticed a link to a Novena to St. Catherine of Siena in my Facebook feed. I will admit that I am not one to pray novenas often. Okay, almost never. But this one caught my attention. St. Catherine of Siena has a special place in my heart. I consider her one of my patron saints since my middle name is Kathleen. To top it off, her feast day, April 29, is my wedding anniversary. So there’s that, but there’s oh so much more than the name and date connections.
Catherine was such a strong Catholic woman, one who was not only powerful and fearless in her love of God but powerful and fearless in her love for the Church. A mystic, a counselor to popes, a stigmatic, a Doctor of the Church. What’s not to love? Especially if you are a modern Catholic woman looking for a strong spiritual role model.
Tiny Buddha is an absolutely wonderful website. It matches cuteness and fun with insight and wisdom. It’s also got more Facebook followers than anyone else on this list, partly because it was a pioneer of the whole spiritual blogging movement.
Does being myself mean I do not strive to be a better me? The answer is yes. And no. Well, it’s complicated. Yet simple.
If striving to be better means you constantly focus on your flaws and judge yourself, then it’s stupid to strive to be better. Because however good you get, there will always be room for improvement.
However, if it means you are happy with who you are and think you could be even more, then yes. Striving to be better is the way to go.
It takes courage to accept who you truly are, but it’s a lot easier if you remember there’s nothing wrong with who you are—and the only way to be happy is to embrace it.

Favourite Excerpt: EXPERIENCE MORE JOY”

Favourite Excerpt: From “Your Spouse Doesn’t Have to Be Your Best Friend”
“Your SpouseWhen we moved to Louisville Holly began to teach at a little private school where she met a couple of other teachers who were runners. She enjoyed running with them MORE THAN ME! Thirty years later she has a few half-marathons and marathons under her belt, along with a triathalon. Very few of the many miles she has logged had me at her side. She runs with her friends, and many of them become her best friends. It took me years to realize that it was just fine for me not to be one of those friends.”

You’ll also find beautiful photography and articles on various spiritual and religious sites the author has visited. The depth and detail of the articles is truly impressive and the writing quality is one of the highest I have seen on a blog.
Favourite Excerpt: From “At Machu Picchu, Where the Veil is Thin”
“The ancient Celts of Ireland described holy sites as “thin places” where the veil between heaven and earth is transparent. In exploring spiritual destinations around the world, I’ve never come across a better description for why certain places simply feel different from other sites.”
