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.
