One of the things I’ve been introduced to is having a daily spiritual practice. It doesn’t take very long, maybe five minutes or so to give gratitude and speak my intent for the day. Then, I call on deity to aid me in my work. Sometimes it’s as simple as having a productive day and giving thanks for friends, family, and the abundance that I have. Other times, I ask for patience or ways to provide more compassion. And sometimes, I’m on my knees really having a conversation with the divine.
Do you have a daily spiritual practice? Do you spend a few minutes every day giving thanks for what you have, and maybe even having a conversation with the universe?
When I mentioned this to someone whose help I really appreciate (yet another gratitude), she was pleasantly happy to find that I did take these few moments a day, especially in my hectic schedule, to give thanks and gratitude.
What practices do you have on a daily basis? Do you light a candle? Do you burn a stick of incense? Do you say a prayer, or even repeat an affirmation over and over again?
How can you incorporate spirituality into your life? How can you create this connection with something outside yourself, yet something so intimate to as to be the very core of our beings?
What do you do…just for you?
