Spirit is to your soul what breath is to your body!
How to Create a Working Relationship With Spirit
As we pursue the art of practical spirituality, what we are hoping to achieve, essentially, is a good working relationship with Spirit.
So, what does it mean to live a spiritual life…and what is spirituality?
The word “spirit” comes from the Latin spiritus, meaning ‘breath’, ‘breath of God’ or ‘inspiration.’
Spirituality is to the soul what the breath of life is to a newborn child.
What Does Spirituality Do?
Spirituality infuses us with life. It gives us peace and purpose. It empowers us to love and nourish ourselves…and others.
Spirituality is literally being able to sustain a working relationship with Spirit….and it doesn’t matter whether we call that spiritual source the Christ, Buddha, the Tao or Brahman.
We can all get in touch – and stay in touch – with the universal power of Spirit by working with that relationship – making that connection – every day!
Where Do We Start?
Spiritual empowerment – the power to transform ourselves and the world around us – starts with the understanding: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? And how do I get there?
So…it is important to discover our soul’s core passion…and when we discover this passion, learn to shape it into a mission. In this regard, It is vitally important to prioritize our goals, both material and spiritual.
And when we need answers…inquire within. The still, quiet voice within is our Christ Self…an always dependable voice of wisdom.
A Couple of Helpful Hints:
Create a sacred space and use it to make a daily spiritual connection with Spirit.
Depend on decrees and the violet flame.
Call to the angels for help with anything we need. But we MUST call, because the angels will never violate our free will…or pre-empt our opportunities for growth, expansion and enlightenment).
Let our spiritual self do the work! When we can get our ego – our lesser self – out of the way, our greater spiritual self can act through us effortlessly. In other words, we must humble the ego if we wish to advance. As the great Lao Tzu said, “to become full, be empty.”
Live in the present! Where our attention goes, there goes our energy.
Use every circumstance and encounter as an opportunity to grow.
Practice loving kindness. And take time for physical and spiritual renewal.
