Welcome! It is so lovely to know there are so many of us wanting to live a better way now and I really do hope these emails help each of you individually in some way. I have written this quick course purely to share what I’m doing to develop my own relationship with spirit because during the past six months it is what a lot of people have told me they want to learn too. It can be overwhelming knowing who to trust when learning this stuff so my aim is to keep things simple and give you the foundations so that you have something to build on in your own way and in your own time.
If you’re new to the spiritual game I get that it can be tough knowing where to start – just how do you do spirituality? Is it being calm 24/7? Burning incense? Knowing the names of the chakra points and what they do? (By the way, there are tons!) What about yoga? Can you claim to love it if you can’t touch your toes or name the poses? It can be overwhelming stepping out of the spiritual closet, especially if you’re immediately greeted by those more immersed in their path than you.
This is *your* path though and it offers a spiritual connection unique to you. For all you know those braggers on the Internet are as clueless as you are but are pretty nifty with the cut and paste. Even if they aren’t, there are hundreds of spiritual paths, beliefs and practices and it’s far too much to ask you to know everything before you can claim your spirituality.
Over the course of twenty years I’ve studied many religions and practices in an attempt to be ‘spiritual’. I’ve worked really hard to take it all in and remember it all, working myself into a frenzy to match the knowledge of others, live the spiritual life they seemed to, and glow in the glory of being a spiritual guru. And you know what all that activity has taught me? It’s ultimately taught me to stop! For when you actively listen to what you need in the moment, you really don’t need to embrace every spiritual practice, every single day. What you need will show up as guidance and it’s listening to this inner voice that gives you the peace you crave and the title of spiritualist. (And I think everyone is ultimately seeking peace whatever they call themselves!)
We are made from love. That same energy that created the universe, God, Angels… It’s running through you. When we say we want to be spiritual what we’re really saying is we want to return to love and remember who we are at cell level. We don’t want to struggle anymore… we want to feel part of a magic we just *know* is missing. We want to connect to heaven again because we know that’s where we belong.
Which brings me to my first spiritual practice: Be love always. I have chosen this as my first practice because to live any other way is to live in frustration, annoyance, stress, fear… even hate, and if you get too deep into all that bad stuff you’ve got no chance of noticing a spirit guide popping by.
If you were hoping email one would give you some magic formula and have you conversing with spirit this evening this practice is especially for you! I was the same for a time! For years I was frustrated I couldn’t connect with spirit other than on heaven’s say so… I would have guides pop in now and again along with family members that had passed over, but I didn’t feel heard when I tried to call them back! I wanted names, faces and full on conversation with my guides and I couldn’t get any of it or if I did, I didn’t trust it! How bloody annoying?!! It wasn’t until I shut my ego up, moved into peace and dropped expectation that I developed the strong connection with spirit that I craved.
‘Being love’ for me means making a choice every second of the day. It means always doing my best to choose the loving path. It means accepting what life gives me and looking for the positive (love) gift or lesson within it. It is not reacting to others when I could, simply because it is more loving towards myself to stay peaceful and not engage in battle. It is choosing peace despite chaos, slowing down rather than rushing, and getting quiet so I can lovingly listen to what I need each day. Whether that’s rest, talking to a loved one, doing something fun or getting a few extra veggies onto the dinner plate, I listen to what my mind and body needs and I love myself by taking care of myself.
I no longer tear from job to job – I choose love instead and know slowing down gives me the chance to breathe and pick up on any messages I need to receive. (Your guides can’t possibly speak with you if you refuse to listen!)
This week, step into your spirituality and close the gap on how far your guide has to come to meet you by practicing love. Choose love always, in each and every moment.
*Instead of reacting, walk away. Be love. Be loving towards yourself by choosing peace. Let others rant and rage but don’t let them draw you in and steal your peace.
*Slow down. Breathe. Take time from your day to just sit in silence. Listen. Is there anything you need to know? Make a note of it. This is your intuition picking up its messages.
*Love yourself by taking care of your needs. Is there something you need or want to do for yourself? More rest time? A better diet? More connection with others? Don’t ignore your needs. Self love is the most important love. And your guides need you well!
*Slow down. (Yep, it’s so important I said it twice!) 10 jobs to do? Do them one at a time, being fully present as you perform each task. This is what the universe wants you to focus on in this moment so there really isn’t any point stressing that you should be doing something else. Love yourself by being present in the moment no matter what demands your attention. Don’t destroy your moment because you’re not fully in it. You can’t chat with spirit if your mind is too full.
*Move from task to task finding the love. Making breakfast? Give thanks for the food. Separating arguing children? Stay calm as you intervine. You have a family. Walking to school? Give thanks for your working legs. Off to work? Give thanks for your pay cheque, be the helpful colleague, love yourself by refusing to feel stress. Find the love each moment is offering, it’s there, trust me…
For me, being spiritual first and foremost means loving myself enough to make a moment to moment choice to choose the most loving and peaceful response to the present. It is here, in this loving space, that you’ll be guided towards living your best life, supported by the same loving energy that created you and surrounds you, and it is here that you’ve got the best chance of picking up on the subtle guidance being offered.
Can you choose love in each and every moment this week? Give it a go, I challenge you! If you fall off the horse merely notice your negativity and have a go at bringing your thoughts back to love. This is a practice I commit to daily and it’s ok to be shouty, stressy, mum/boss/daughter if you recognise when you’re not where you want to be and have the ability to guide yourself back to love by choosing again.
