Develop a Spiritual Practice

Any activity that serves to center you, bringing you a sense of deep inner connection with both yourself and the world around you, can form the basis for a spiritual practice. Examples include Eastern disciplines, such as yoga and meditation, as well as spiritual pilgrimage or other ceremonial rituals. The activity will absorb you completely, so that you reach a state of "flow" whereby you are one with what you are doing. Practice this as regularly as possible as it will give you a point of steadiness in your life.

Other ideas:

  • Learn from spiritual teachers. Study their lives and teachings and follow their precepts.
  • Be humble - as Henry Thoreau once said, "Humility like darkness reveals the heavenly lights."
  • Call upon your spirit guides as they can help you whenever you are in a difficult situation or have a question that you are unable to answer.
  • Be in the flow of life - the ceaseless movement from one form to another. When we try to resist or control the natural pattern of change, problems arise. Harmony is restored by accepting change.
