In nurturing your Spiritual practice, you nurture yourself. Love becomes a very real part of your life. Even as you experience Love in this life right now, even before a committed practice with the desire to be in a working relationship with the Divine, you are experiencing Love; with family, with friends, in romantic relationships. What changes is you. The Love in you expands. As you connect with the Divine you are working with Love energy and this is what you are putting into the world. You will experience Love on an entirely different level. You will experience love more intensely, more deeply, more profoundly and with clarity and compassion.
In this process and in your prayer/meditation practice your Soul shifts from where it was to an evolved state of being. This alone is Spiritually healing – this alone is the healing balm for your Soul. As mentioned in Chapter 6 when we connect with Source – when we heal our Souls, all else follows; the physical, emotional, psychological, and the intellectual mind.
Again, do not judge yourself if there is struggle in the process. Part of the human condition is struggle. There may be times when you feel very uncomfortable – as you release from your ego, the human “nature” side of you will want to fight this. Remember that you will go at your own speed in releasing from what you think things should be to what they will be in the Divine.
Create a habit around your spiritual practice. I suggest creating a personal space at home that is quiet and inviting. Choose a time that will allow you to have quiet and stillness. Ask your family to give you this time, and in time they may join you in your practice! If you have five minutes to start, then start with five minutes. Use whatever assistance that will support your practice. Decide before you begin – what do you want available to you? Prayer books, poetry books, the bible, soothing music, visual objects or objects that resonate with you as nurturing and supportive; these are all good starts in creating your prayer/meditation space. For some it may be a quiet area outside – connecting with nature supports both prayer and med- itation.
Work in discernment about your practice. Where have you found Gods presence on this planet that has fed you, nourished you, given you a sense of peace and connection to Oneness? For some it is in art; others gazing at the stars; and then there is music or a combination of these things and more. But it is personal so in your discernment learn or “relearn” – remember the Divine seeks to connect to us all our lives and in various venues – where you have received and where you have felt connected to God. When you have identified this you can bring your evolved spiritual practice with you wherever you go, and without words, be open to receive and give with the Divine.
