Consciously creating our lives takes awareness, and awareness takes practice. There are so many helpful tools and techniques for helping us connect with the creator within us. All of the answers we need are close at hand. We just have to stop, listen, and practice.
I have found that my practice has broadened over the years as I've learned new things. In addition to regular meditation, I use many of the tools I've mentioned in this blog, such as heart-focused breathing and writing letters to God. I'm looking forward to writing about other tools in the future.
A regular practice is just that, regular, and practice. It ideally is something that we make time for, and try to maintain as a priority in the middle of busy days. It is also something that is done as much for the process as for the outcome; we don't worry about getting it perfectly but we just do it. I always know that when I'm most resistant to sitting down to meditate, I need it the most. If I get off track, I start again. It's a gift I give to myself, something that I get to do rather than have to do. What better legacy, than taking the time to know myself?
A regular practice of whatever spiritual tool we choose helps quiet the voice of limits that says I don't have time, I have too much to do, I can't do this right, I need to stop. Practice gives us confidence in telling that voice to hush, so that we can dwell in the truth of who we are, and who we want to be.
May this tool be a blessing. . .
