As stated in the book, spirituality is a very broad concept. Everyone perceives it differently, one way or another. The definition of spirituality that includes God involves religion. It involves worship of a God with controlling power and ability to lay out and change one’s fate. It is believing that a superhuman has the ability to change things for the better of for worse, and that God will be there to judge us and join us when we die. In comparison, spirituality in the non-religious sense is a quality that we possess. We are concerned with our spirit or soul as opposed to everything else that exists in the world. According to Giddens, “What is true is that everyone has a spiritual nature, a sense that there is more than what is experienced day to day, month to month, year to year until death. Spirituality encompasses the Sudan activities of life that keep us grounded as well as those magnificent times and experiences when our innermost spirit soars with any number of emotional responses including exquisite joy, dark and deep sorrow, laughter and fun, and all emotions in between” (Giddens, 2017, p. 40).

Regarding my comfort level related to asking questions about spirituality, I can say that I won’t have any trouble bringing it up or talking about it. Being a spiritual person myself, it is not a new and sensitive subject for me. I will openly talk about my beliefs so I won’t be shy asking people about theirs either. However, when a patient refuses to answer my questions, I will respect that as well and I will not push or force them to answer.

I deliver patient-patient-centered are to a patient with a different belief system than me by being accepting and supportive of their preferences. I understand and accept that we are all different and if I want my beliefs to be respected I should learn how to respect other people’s beliefs as well. I grew up with muslims so I know that they have an entirely different rituals and times they need to complete them. If I get patients like them in the future, I will respect their prayer times and plan care around them. I will also respect and value their food preferences as well as their choice of care provider.
