A spiritual practice is the act of doing or participating in spiritual experiences to create spiritual development within oneself. The ultimate goal of attaining spiritual enlightenment is to get liberation, moksha or union with the higher self.
Meditation is the best way to practice spiritual connection. Sit for 10 mins daily with your eyes closed. Take(inhale and exhale) long deep breaths and put your full attention to your breath only. This process calms your mind and releases toxins- emptying you of negative emotions so you can be filled with the power of positivity and fresh energy. Meditate daily as this connects you with the higher self.
It is important to create time in the day where you are actually communicating with yourself. Listen to your thoughts, speak your heart out. Give emphasis to the little details of the thoughts in your mind. Share your secrets with yourself. You will discover some great things about you that you did not know before. This is a good process to vent and detox.You need to listen to yourself before speaking to the world.
Make it a daily habit to spend at least half an hour to one hour in learning more about Spirituality. Listen to spiritual podcasts or read books. While Spirituality is experiential, a major growth in our spiritual awakening happens when we learn philosophically from others.
