You’ve probably seen all of the Instagram posts and Facebook updates from other spiritual seekers about their glamor, ornate 3-hour morning routines, am I right?
When you’re struggling to have time for self-care and spirituality, it can be disheartening to feel like you need to find 5 extra hours in the day in order to ‘keep up’ with the zen Jones. But, spirituality doesn’t require hours of meditation, 5 yoga classes a week, or even 30 minutes of journaling- it’s as simple as taking a few minutes to be mindful, to stay present, and to show up for yourself. In fact, some of the most effective parts of my spiritual practice are the ones that take the least amount of time.
In fact, some of the most effective parts of my spiritual practice are the ones that take the least amount of time, because spirituality is all about defying time, logic, and reason. It’s about having faith to go beyond what’s physically possible. Things like time, money, and health become insignificant when you’re connecting to a greater consciousness because consciousness isn’t built on time, money, or health. It’s built on the power of NOW.
The practice I want to share with you today involves opening to a random page of a spiritual book and seeing what guidance is there for you. It’s amazing how when you ask for help, the universe delivers…if you’re willing to listen to the message.
To do this, all you need to do is connect intuitively to a favorite spiritual book- it could be a Bible, a Torah, or a Koran, it could be a motivational book, or my personal favorite, A Course in Miracles. You then connect inward and ask for guidance to be delivered to you- I usually say something like “show me the message that I need to see today,” and then turn to a random page. You don’t want to overthink this step, or else your ego will lead the way- just open to the first page that you turn to and read the words that your eyes first land on.
