I find that by following Spirit’s guidance I cannot fail. Spirit doesn’t fail and neither can I. That’s such a good feeling. It took me developing a great willingness and doing a LOT of forgiveness work to get to the peaceful place I live in now. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.
In the Stop Playing Small retreat this weekend, we’ve been talking about how easy it is to decide to do the laundry instead of our spiritual practice. “Let me clean up the kitchen first, or run these errands.” In this, we’re all the same.
I have a friend who basically won’t take any phone calls or do anything on the computer until her basic spiritual practice is done. Even though she’s a dedicated practitioner she knows that if she delays her practice to the afternoon momentum is lost and she will be less dedicated, less devoted, less in synch.
I absolutely LOVE to get up at 5am and begin with spiritual practice.
I love to build the momentum of doing that 40 days in a row without fail. Even if I worked till midnight. I keep my agreement with myself.
Folks who are in class with me learn that a commitment to a simple spiritual practice for a length of time like 21, 30, 40, 90 days or a year builds focus, mental strength, self-Love and self-esteem. We often look outside ourselves for these things, but they can only come from within.
Let’s not fool ourselves anymore.
Let’s be ALL IN for our connection with Spirit.
Doing it together is a wonderful way to build momentum. Many who are in my year-long Masterful Living Course have joined me in doing a simple meditation practice. People have had such wonderful benefits that I decided to do a 40 Day Challenge and open it to everyone.
In yesterday’s blog on the Kirtan Kriya, I explained about my 40 Day Kirtan Kriya Challenge. I’m excited for us to build some group momentum and I do hope you’ll check it out and join us.
There’s no cost to join the challenge – this is just a gift from the Power of Love Ministry to you.
