A source told The Sun: "Cheryl has awakened her spiritual side. She has been tapping into higher powers for answers and guidance."
They also added: "She's been doing some deep thinking - especially after malaria. Christianity is closest to her, but she's open to other religious influences."
Cole, 27, has got some fairly religious pals including will.i.am and her rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough - perhaps that's had something to do with it?It seems like Cheryl Cole is keeping her option when it comes regarding her religion. I wonder if she is going to consider Islam as her religion? InsyaAllah.
