Now throughout my posts my recurring theme is please start some regular spiritual practice. You might say that, I say my bedtime prayers or I do go to temple every week, I am spiritual! But what I mean is spiritual Practice.
Spiritual practice is an activity which connects you with your personal energies. No one is going to find divinity somewhere outside. True God is not in a temple or in the mountains or in the stars. True divinity lies within you. Search for it regularly inside you till you find it.
But what are you supposed to do actually?
Start with something very do-able. Breathe. We have forgotten how to breathe! Do slow diaphragmatic/abdominal breathing, meaning when you breathe in, your stomach should expand and not your chest. And while breathing out, the stomach should go in not the chest. While you breathe in visualize white-gold light going in and while exhaling see the black-brown negative stuff go out. Do this mindfully for 5 mins a day? Or more if you want.
Then after you feel comfortable breathing, start the weekly cleansing with lemons/peacock feathers/sea salt whatever you like. Also do ground yourself as a matter of routine. It all there in my previous posts.
Learn reiki from a responsible reiki teacher or if not possible try to activate your own palm chakras. Then do the 10 minute chakra healing everyday before you fall off to sleep.
These 3 steps are good enough start. You will be able to sense your own energies if you practice regularly. And then whenever you feel comfortable with the idea do dhyan. I have posted an audio on youtube on how to do it here. Listen to it and do it if you feel like it.
A note of caution. Today spirituality has become a booming business. There are so many preachers/missionaries/gurus/whatever on the internet and everywhere claiming to raise your kundalini, to take you to christ, to help you get face to face with your god, to get you a wife, job, child, money, endless list, or scare you with sins/paap/hell/misfortune all for a handsome sum of money or a puja or a sacred ash or whatever. Now you tell me is this even possible? Can some actually do this? No, whatever has to be done is to be done by your own self. There are no shortcuts.
If you want a PhD, you will have to go to class 1 to 10, do a graduation, post graduation, study, complete your courses, write your thesis and then ace the test to get the PhD. There are no short cuts. And since this subject of ours is spirituality, knowing oneself, who is the best teacher ? Your own self! You yourself are the teacher and you yourself are the student. Your soul is as old as the universe, and the number of lives you have taken and the things you have seen! Do not sell yourself short. Your faith/Shraddha is the most valuable energy you have got. No one else deserves your faith. Only you yourself. Keep your faith in your own self. In this busyness of life find your own self, listen to your own self.
Do your practice regularly, for 5 mins everyday. Is possible? These 5 minutes per day are the most valuable that you will spend because you are being with the most important person in the universe, you.
