"To the Danes, hygge is less about a particular aesthetic and more about feelings of belonging, conviviality, and contentment, so essential for the soul. In that sense, hygge could almost be considered a spiritual practice: a stance and attunement that helps you return to your true self and pay closer attention to the many blessings and Sacred stirrings that surround you."
Yesterday, I suggested an exercise that would help you explore the idea of creating a spiritual practice that would be perfect for you. If you didn’t get a chance to try it, you can find that post here.
In this post, I’ll be sharing my own thoughts about what an ideal spiritual practice would be like, and you may get some ideas from that, but I have a surprise for you, too, that I .
And it will be much more meaningful if you were there yesterday or you take a moment to try the exercise now. I’ll be right here when you get back.
When I first did this exercise for myself, I was just waking up & the ideas began to come to me so fast, I stopped to write them down before I did anything else that day.
Then, I went back to them, for tweaking, when I had my cup of tea & could give it a little more time.
This is my dream spiritual practice…
It brings me peace, and creates moments of happiness or contentment. It engenders hope & the sense that everything’s going to be alright.
It connects me with my deepest truths & highest self, and inspires any change I need from a place of safety & comfort. It guides me, helps me let go of what no longer serves me, gives me peace & helps me daydream about & send energy to the life I want most.
Does any of that resonate with you?
Or inspire any other thoughts about what an ideal spiritual practice would be like for you?
