How do you define a spiritual person? 

Seven traits of a spiritual person

1.Spiritual people live an INWARD LIFE. 
A contemplative, meditational, listening, attuned life. 
The Dalai Lama once quipped, while the West was busy exploring outer space, the East was busy exploring inner space.
A spiritual person is led by the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:14). The spiritual soul will acknowledge that he does not possess the inherent wisdom to know how to conduct his life (Jer. 10:23). He therefore will solicit fervently the mind of God (by consulting the Scriptures) for direction. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. Romans 7:22 (NKJV) 
He will mediate day and night upon such matters (Psa. 1:2). Prayer and Communion (Mat 6) The soul abiding with Christ in God, is given: "Hidden manna" for the sustenance of the inner life. "To him that overcomes. will I give of the hidden manna" Rev 2:17. "Hidden wisdom" that is withheld from the wise. "The wisdom of God... the hidden wisdom revealed... by His Spirit" 1 Cor 2:7-10."Hidden riches" only gained in times of testing. "I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places" Isa 45:3. that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, Ephesians 3:16 (NKJV)
Spiritual people are not impressed by the outward appearance of things. Christ within the hope of Glory. (Col 1:27) Inner adornment of the heart – (1Pe 3:3-4) Spiritual people have their inner world ordered and redecorated by the Holy Spirit. (Gal 5:21-22) See 1Tim 2:9-10  See also 1Sa 16:7

2.Spiritual people live a more CONNECTED LIFE 
Connected with God, self, others and creation. 
God is spirit. (2 Cor 3:17)
Become a spiritual person, 1 Cor 2:9 eyes has not seen, but He has revealed it through His spirit.  Might know the things of God, revealed through the spirit. Not thought out, not carnal. Comparing spiritual things with spiritual people.  The Holy Spirit always operates towards a deeper connection.   Spiritual people - connected, active, activated, alive.  Personal relationship with the Holy Spirit.  Filled with the Spirit. (Eph 5:18) 
Harmony, peaceful, childlike, easy-going. Unburdened. Free. 

3.Spiritual people practise SPIRITUAL GIFTS
Although it can be said that Practising Spiritual gifts does not make you spiritual, it is obvious that spiritual people keeps themselves busy with spiritual things. (Rom 8:1-5) 
The gifts of the Holy Spirit is per essence spiritual, yet this alone does not make you a spiritual person. The disciples at Corinth possessed miraculous gifts, yet many of them still were not spiritual (1 Cor. 3:1). Some of them even abused the gifts they possessed (1 Cor 14:27-33).  The church in Corinth could be labelled as spiritual, due to 2 chapters dealing with spiritual gifts, and tongues. Yet this same church had to be admonished, to stop their divisions (1 Cor 1:10-4:21), not judging sin in their midst (1 Cor 5), to flee immorality (1 Cor 6:12-20)! 
Yet the Scriptures often speaks about the qualification of deaconships and eldership must be that these people must be FULL OF THE SPIRIT. (Acts 6:3, 5, 8; 7:55; 11:24) 
EXERCISE YOURSELF IN SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES
Pray in tongues 1Cor 14:18
Desire spiritual gifts 1Cor 14:1-2
Lay hands on the sick Mar 16:18
Win souls Mat 28:19
Drive put demons. (Luk 10:19) 
Expect the supernatural.  One tenth of Jesus’ life was supernatural in deeds, and wonders, and miracles.

4.Spiritual people SEE IN THE SPIRIT 
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:16) ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radian
