I'm a big believer in maintaining some kind of a spiritual practice. Having a practice you do most days of the week allows you time to tune in your higher self. It's essential for people working on any kind of spiritual growth, energy healers, empaths, and people wishing to develop their psychic or intuitive abilities. In other words, pretty much everyone.
A spiritual practice can help you heal past trauma, release suppressed emotions, detoxify emotionally and spiritually, and tune in to higher guidance. It can help you calm the constant stress that comes from daily life, be more focused, breathe in a way that is more beneficial to your body, mind, and spirit, and restore energetic balance. It can soothe and repair a frayed or damaged auric field that comes from being out in the world and balance your chakras and meridians so energy flows throughout and around you freely.
A spiritual practice doesn't have to mean sitting and meditating, although for many that is exactly what it means. A spiritual practice is anything you can do that focuses you on the present moment, quiets your mind, and connects you to your higher self.
I recommend finding the practice that clicks with you. If it's something you don't enjoy or stress out about doing, it will never be sustainable. Some suggestions for a spiritual practice:
You've probably heard it takes 21 days to establish a habit. Research shows this isn't exactly true. In fact, it can take as long as ten weeks to make something habitual. So establishing your spiritual practice and getting it set may take a bit longer than three weeks. But it's necessary for your growth as a soul that you do. Setting aside time for yourself everyday helps you to make your own growth and healing a priority. It is the best way to detoxify from life in a stressful world and connect to higher guidance, allowing you to inhabit your life with more flow, grace, purpose, and joy.
