50 Profound Spiritual Growth Quotes To Inspire Your Path

Today I’m sharing my favorite positive spiritual growth quotes. Use them for meditation, as journaling prompts, or whenever you need a bit of inspiration. I hope they bring you comfort!

Spiritual Growth Meaning

Simply put, spiritual growth happens when you pursue your connection with your own spirit.

If you embrace the knowledge that there’s more to you than your physical body and what you can gather with your five senses, then you’re already experiencing spiritual growth!

When you look at life through this broader lens, it changes your perception of everything, from your relationships to your challenges and blessings.

It’s important to know that spiritual growth is a continual process that you will never complete; so don’t put any pressure on yourself.  Think of it as a practice that will allow you to continually upgrade your world.

Signs of Spiritual Growth

If you’re reading this post, that’s a sign of spiritual growth all by itself! But here are some other clear signs that you’re experiencing a spiritual growth spurt:

  • You look for (and find) blessings in your challenges 
  • Drama no longer interests or entertains you
  • You become more discerning about who you spend your time
  • Treating/rewarding yourself in healthier ways
  • Honoring your physical body
  • It’s easier to empathize with others
  • You bounce back from bad moods faster and more easily
  • Emotions even out and you have more good days than bad
  • Things work out for you more often than not
  • The world feels like an abundant place that’s always showing you blessings
  • Growing interest in spiritual self-care
  • Intuitive gifts begin to blossom

Positive Spiritual Growth Quotes

The main requirement for spiritual growth: A yearning to know who you really are.

Swami Vivekananda

The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love.

Our thoughts have their own rate of vibration and we can control them like tuning an instrument. As our understanding of vibration, frequency, harmony, and resonance increase, so too shall our power over ourselves and our reality!

Katya Ki

One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it.

Steve Maraboli

Spiritual growth is not like fast food. It takes time for its roots to grow, and that requires us to be receptive and patient.

The vibration you’re in is going to dictate what you attract into your life, and if you’re troubled you’re worried, you’re going to attract a lot of bad energy. The things you fear will come and visit upon you.

Bob Proctor

Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.


I think maintenance comes from a daily spiritual growth practice of some kind: prayer, meditation, affirmations. Something that keeps you in the consciousness of higher thoughts and energy. That’s also how you make sure you don’t do it again.

Gabby Bernstein

You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.

Guy Van Looveren

We can begin to achieve higher frequencies by recognizing the pattern of “like attracts like.” More than just a saying, this is an energetic law. Frequencies are attracted to similar frequencies. We resonate at a higher frequency when we raise our vibration, and, therefore, attract higher-level experiences.

Spiritual Quotes About Growth

Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.

Stephen Covey

Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.


The most important spiritual growth doesn’t happen when you’re meditating or on a yoga mat. It happens in the midst of conflict… when you’re frustrated, angry or scared and you’re doing the same old thing, and then you suddenly realize that you have a choice to do it differently.

We have never been taught how to relax, how to take care of ourselves in a positive, nurturing way (not just going on a vacation or out for an expensive dinner). Twenty minutes of deep relaxation a day will aid your mental growth, improve your physical health and emotional stability, and possibly even increase your spiritual awareness.

Ajahn Chah

Out of the shell of the broken heart emerges the newborn soul.

Hazrat Inayat Khan

The material world is all feminine. The feminine engergy makes the non-manifest, manifest. So even men (are of the feminine energy). We have to relinquish our ideas of gender in the conventional sense. This has nothing to do with gender, it has to do with energy. So feminine energy is what creates and allows anything which is non-manifest, like an idea, to come into form, into being, to be born. All that we experience in the world around us, absolutely everything (is feminine energy). The only way that anything exists is through the feminine force.

Zeena Schreck

Suffering, in fact, can be helpful in many ways. It spurs your motivation and as many teachings point out, without suffering there would be no determination to be free from samsara. Sadness is an effective antidote to arrogance.
