12 Practical Ways to Kick-Start Your Daily Spiritual Practice

Establishing a daily spiritual practice helps to reinforce our awareness of Spirit, God, the Universe, whatever you choose to call It, in our day-to-day lives. These practices facilitate a purposeful, conscious reconnection with the Truth of our being and the Divine essence within, and nourish our souls. They enable us to see with the inner eyes and hear with our inner ears, and ultimately increase our awareness of the consistent Divine Presence in every area of our lives. As we increase our conscious connection to Spirit, we create space for new insights and inspiration because these practices create an opening within us for new ideas to come through.

And that didn't stop me from making up a really great story about my experience.

And many of us go throughout our days asking the Universe to supply us with this good or that ... (fill in the blank). And yet very few of us spend any time doing the inner preparation required to receive what it is we're asking for.
