Recently I was interviewed on the subject of “practical spirituality.” In the video below, I picked a subject I felt each of us could connect with and apply immediately.
Spirituality is, much like God, money and sex, a loaded word. What does it mean to you? I’m a fan of short and profound explanations, so here is mine:
Being spiritual, or having a spiritual practice is something that happens more often than we think. I don’t believe it is an isolated moment in a church, yoga class or meditation experience. For me, “being spiritual” is simply each moment that you find yourself in joy, well-being and alignment. Spirituality can also be as simple as a moment when you find yourself in flow. All the better if you have awareness of it and really milk these moments. In the absence of resistance, wellness prevails. Well-being, excitement, knowing, playfulness, flow, eagerness, creativity, zest, passion for life, birthing a new desire, sharing smiles, coming into alignment with your desires and seeing manifestations unfold… these are all moments of spirituality and connection. There are myriad ways you can connect to “Source” or to your own spirituality: through communing with nature, through moving or sitting quietly with yourself, with animals, with children, with your body and even through body awareness. One of my favorite ways is by practicing deep listening and giving the gift of presence. Listening to myself, to my body, to others and most importantly to my internal guidance system: my instincts and intuition which have never steered me wrong.
One of the quickest ways for me to get present, listen deeply and connect with my higher self is revealed in the video below. I hope you enjoy the results and feel them immediately.
