Spirituality is a broad concept, in my humble opinion, it is a sense of connection to something higher than ourselves. Like me, Many people search for meaning in their lives. The feeling of transcendence experienced in spirituality is a universal experience. Some find it in religion, while others find it in meditation.
I practice a daily spiritual morning routine, which has become as much a part of my life as brushing my teeth. I have a little meditation area set up which is a little chaotic with crystals, candles and vision boards, small gifts from friends and family; things that make me grateful.
Before I look at my phone I drink some water, make a coffee and then sit down in my special place. I light a candle and write in my journal what I did the day before, I use the opportunity to count my blessings and reframe my challenges into opportunities for growth.
Attitude of Gratitude
I write a page of affirmations to cultivate an ‘Attitude of Gratitude.’ Being grateful is the fastest way to manifest your dreams and visions into reality. My thinking is good, my actions are good, my life is good!
Next, I close my eyes and bring my attention into the centre of my chest, it’s known as the spiritual heart centre. Don’t get me wrong, I am not an expert at concentrating, it’s hard to pull my monkey mind there. That’s why it’s called a practice. I bring my attention to the expansive feeling of love. Imagine this love energy growing till it fills the room, then the house then the whole world and out into endless space. This is visualization, and it is POWERFUL. Never underestimate the power of the heart to change my world. Love is the only truth.
My vision board, which sits in my eye line, is a huge part of my morning experience. It’s giving me sneaky subliminal messages. These are my destinations. This is my ‘To-do List.’
After a little shut-eye heart time, I ask my higher power for guidance and clarity. All I want is to be a good person in my daily dealings with people and keep my side of the street clean. Cultivate joy in my heart, and connect with others in meaningful ways. It’s the only way to travel
