Crafting a daily spiritual practice is one thing. Staying committed to that daily practice is another.
If you’re anything like me and every person I know, you have the best intentions when it comes to making self-loving changes in your daily habits. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to develop a daily spiritual/affirmational routine, and despite knowing this, so few of us actually find ourselves consistently showing up to engage in our self-care ritual du jour.
It doesn’t have to be this way, Beauties. You deserve your daily spiritual practice. And if you’re willing to think outside the box and hold yourself accountable, transformative daily moments can be yours.
WRITE IT DOWN
Get out your planner, journal, digital scheduler et. al. and reserve a spot for spiritual practice every day. It may seem totally unnecessary, but I assure you, it’s not.
When we write things down in our planner, we create a visual representation of our intentions. Call me crazy, but planning something is a lot like writing a spell–if you put it out there, you program yourself to go after it.
Woke up on the wrong side of the bed? Got up late? Straight-up didn’t feel like it? There’s no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water. Take a mindful moment during your lunch break or reserve ten minutes before you go to bed to chat with your guides.
You don’t have to do the same thing at the same time every day to get the benefits of spiritual practice; you only have to find a small chunk of time to check in and adjust your mindset. Speaking of variety…
CHANGE THINGS UP
If you feel like you’re going through the motions, your mantra’s outdated, or you’re flat-out uninspired, change things up to get the spark back. Novelty is proven to ignite our curiosity and get us excited again, and there’s no reason why we can’t apply that mentality to what we do on the daily.
WRITE IT DOWN (AGAIN)
Keep a record of your spiritual escapades in the form of a book of mirrors or spiritual journal. This can help you process the messages you received, take stock of what works (and what doesn’t), and remember what you worked through. I’ve found my book of mirrors to be an incredible resource on my spiritual journey–whenever I feel a bit “bleh” about my practice, I flip through and find something interesting to try again or improve on.
Much Love, and Happy Witching!
