- -★★Nurturing Our Spirit| 1st edition-SOUL FOOD SERIES

Sometimes we get caught up with the hustle and bustle demands of our human life we tend to forget that we are comprised of body, mind and spirit. In as much as we nurture our bodies, it is just as imperative for us to nurture our minds and most importantly our spirits. “We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. We are here to learn. We are here to go through this process that is life. We are here to feel these feelings.” quote from Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls.

Consider what it would feel like to be an alien from another planet observing our climate, geography and customs. Initially it would be unnerving, surprising, so totally foreign because it is not what one is accustomed to.

When you take the time to nurture your spirit, your thoughts become anew. It feels totally amazing to act from a stance and purpose of love. To “die to self is to be born to spirit.” When you allow your ego to reduce gradually, when your concerns become not self serving but of service to the greater good, the flow of positive energy increases it is an overall feeling of contentment. It is a space of “grace” in which you relish in being, connecting, knowing that you are one with Life.

I absolutely love feeling good, smiling until my face hurts, laughing and giggling out loud whether I am alone or a part of a crowd. Being filled with the joy of the moment is something that is so very wonderful, there is no comparison. What is even more amazing is knowing that I have the ability to feed my spirit as if I were having a wonderful feast. Enjoying an artistic experience or expression, whether musical, sculptures, paintings, books or savoring a glass of a vintage Shiraz, whatever brings a smile to your face and enables you to be in a state of grace. That’s what I do each and everyday living life in my own magnificent way. Totally free to experience this gift of life wonderfully.

I know that we all have rituals, or special things that we do that nurture our spirits too. Let’s share with one another. We are all on this amazing,, magical journey, one for all and all for one. I will go first.

I find the dawn of each new day magical, when I open my eyes the first thing I do is say “Thank You for the gift of the day. I am open to all wonderful things that come my way. I am light and love and want to share.” Then I rise, fluff my pillows, make my bed, reflecting on all that is around me for I truly love all that I see for I am surrounded by all the wonderful things that are reflective of Me. My spirit is filled with gratitude that is the way I begin my day.

How do you go about setting the tone for a glorious day?

What are some of the things that you do that spur the action of spiritual play?

What activities or rituals do you incorporate to nurture your spirit?

Speaking of anew-that is what I’ve been feeling and paving my
New year with!

I’ve been creating, allowing and thoroughly enjoying.

(though to get there I have been taking good care)
On this time off of mine which is almost over I’ve been ‘growing my routines’

I speak about nourishing myself alot …That’s what it takes to form ways I want for myself.

At some point of my beginning of the morning… includes something healthy and wonderful to have for my breakfast.

  • ….As I eat ..I take in the glorious taste(s) of my chosen food. I reinforce how delicious and nutritious this food is. Though last but not least… I am awesomely grateful for my body’s ability to taste, digest, absorb this menu of choices… and the ability to have food to choose from.

Nancee53 has started a weekly Soul Food Series! another wonderful thread to look forward to for us-bmindfullers -regularly!

The applications of gratitude and blessing are virtually unlimited, can be used by anyone, require no waiting periods or large capital investments, transcend ideological differences, and are wonderfully contagious.

AWWWW I am so happy you like!!!

Great thread!
I always start my day with Gratitude in my heart for my life. Through out the day taking moments to acknowledge the kindness, beauty, nature that surround us.

Heart Filled with Gratitude, for this journey of my life. I open my whole and holy Self to receive the blessings of Source.

In response to Nancee1953’s post:
Very beautiful thread!

I appreciate your joy in the new dawn!!

I needed that!!

What activities or rituals do you incorporate to nurture your spirit?

What are some of the things that you do that spur the action of spiritual play?

I love life and I love people more. I do not meet any strangers because my belief is we are all related. When I encounter people, whether at the bank, store, gas station, if I see them with bags or they look like they require assistance. I go over to them, smile and offer my assistance. I often receive a warm reception, I think it is because my actions says “I see you”. Engaging others, spreading good cheer, that is a form of spiritual play for me. I refer to it at “spiritual play” because it is an activity of enjoyment that nurtures my spirit.

What activities or rituals do you incorporate to nurture your spirit?

Throughout the course of the day I find myself saying “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You see there is always something to be grateful about. Whether it s the very air that I breathe, the fragrance I am wearing, a smile or kind word received, these are all such marvelous things. The very essence of who I am and how I came to be, the gift of life is an awesome miracle to me.
