Daily practice, just like regular exercise, is the best way to keep your spiritual muscles conditioned and your mind engaged in the process of personal growth. It’s also a great way to work out sticky situations and get through tough times. I upped my daily commitment recently, as I was dealing with a big handful of fear, and it’s really helped. Here, is a quick rundown of my practice for anyone seeking a blueprint. As ever, feel free to improvise.
.A few thoughts in my Gratitude Journal – just a simple list of things I’m thankful for
.A quick journal entry setting intentions for my sleep, such as “I would like to hear from my spiritual guides on what my life’s purpose is” OR “I would like to visit my friend Jimmy in my dreams.” [Jimmy passed away 2 years ago.]
In the morning:
.Journal my daily intention – “Today, I will have patience with my nieces and nephews.” OR “Today, I will radiate love in all of my interactions.”
.Meditate [I really love the Deepak-Oprah series and also do a 21-breath meditation on days I’m short on time or do not want a mantra. Let me know in the comments if you want deets.]
Throughout the Day:
.Read my manifestation cards
.Read about spirituality from one of my books or an online resource such as Eckhart Tolle, ESquared, Sonia Choquette, Esther Hicks, Louise Hay, Oprah, Gary Zukav, etc.
.Listen to meditation music, singing bowls or monks chanting while I am working – I find this to be a very calming practice that keeps me in a productive state of mind.
