Many of us grew up in in situations where discipline has a connection to punishment. Where discipline meant a list of rules. Laws. Things to cross off of a list in pursuit of being good enough. We were working for grace. When really we are called to live from a place of grace.

We can move from spiritual discipline to spiritual practice. Spiritual discipline isn’t something we master, and that takes the pressure off. There is no finish line. It is an ever evolving practice.

Why do we need a spiritual practice?

Just like boats need an anchor, we need a spiritual practice so we don’t get lost in the current. It connects us to something higher than ourselves . Going up and connecting horizontally to Source, informs and impacts every other area of our life.

Your spiritual practice can be in the every day mundane things you experience. It doesn’t have to be an eleborate thing. You can turn anything into a spiritual practice. Regular moments can become moments of gratitude and worship. Gratitude is one of the highest forms of spiritual practice. To be thankful and have gratitude requires presence. When you are present you start to hear and see things that you may have missed, and those moments create opportunity for gratitude. We have the power to create moments of enlightment through presence.

Instead of following a checklist of things we need to do to fulfill our practice, we need to move as we feel led and leave space to listen and be guided. There is an element of surrender that needs to take place in our spiritual practice in order to connect with Source and our Higher Self. In a year like we are currently experiencing we need more than ever to create space to connect with the light. Source is love and truth. We need to replace our limited beliefs with the truth and we need to connect with love.

Begin each day with connection and make gratitude your ultimate spiritual practice. Turn your spiritual practice into a lifestyle so you’re always in practice. 

It’s not spiritually mastery, it’s spiritual practice.
There is no finish line.
