June Idea of the Month

This month, in the free e-newsletter and the webpage Idea of the Month, we are talking about spiritual exercise. Idea of the Month page

When people hear the word "exercise" it usually conjures up ideas of "stuff you want to avoid" "something you don't like doing" "not fun" "takes up too much time" "don't have time for it". Need I come up with any more excuses?!!

Spiritual exercise is Spiritual practice. What you do not practice, you do not experience. You might say "I'm a spiritual person" or "I'd like to be more spiritual in my life." But what does that mean? What does that look like?

It means you actually have to do something. And that something is not necessarily a physical doing. Although some people find spiritual connection in doing Tai Chi or chanting.

Spiritual exercise is a mental discipline. It is taking the time to do Spiritual Mind Treatment or repeating affirmations or meditating or just being still.

But you must take the time. Can you find 20 minutes a day? How about 10 minutes a day? Any amount of time is better than no time.

Consciously set your intention for spiritual practice -- then just do it!
