Walking a Spiritual Path

Nature Path

What is spirituality?

It depends who you ask. Spirituality means different things to different people. I define spirituality as awareness/consciousness of a divine presence working in and through our lives. It is experienced as a sense of belonging to something greater, timeless, and infinite in possibility. It is the means through which we feel a deep sense of purpose and connection to all of life.

What is a spiritual path?

Truth-centered/heart-centered path and process of empowerment.

What is the best way to walk a spiritual path?

There is no right or wrong way to walk a spiritual path; it is a deeply personal path that is influenced by your values, beliefs, trust, experiences, introspection, reflection, and practices. It is an internal process of discerning what is true for you and living from that truth.

Truth is the light that guides your way.

Are you seeking a deeper sense of purpose and direction for your life? Feel stuck in one or more areas of your life? Feel less than confident about making changes to your life? Are you ready to create a more purposeful and fulfilling life?

My book, Be True to You: A Practical Guide to Pursuing an Authentic Path is a spiritually oriented guide to creating a purposeful and fulfilling life. It is designed to help you step into your power, clarify your purpose, and consistently move forward on your path. Click here to learn more about Be True to You.

Pray & Take Action

When you pray, move your feet.

African Proverb

When we pray with a goal in mind, we are engaging the power of intention in the context of all things being divinely possible.

The word intention comes from the Latin word intendere which means to stretch out; to extend. Intention inspires vision and guides action. For example, if you are praying for peace, envision what peace would look like in your life and commit to thinking peaceful thoughts, speaking peaceful words, and creating a peaceful environment. If you are praying for a new job/career opportunity, envision your new job/career and support your prayer with actions like updating your resume, creating a list of companies to target, networking, and so on.

Prayer that is outcome focused and not supported with action is empty prayer. It is important that we pray and take action.

Engage the power of the written word to help you manifest what you desire. Create a plan of action that will enable you to move from where you are to where you would like to be. Consider using images and/or symbols as visual reminders of your desired outcome (click here to see my post on Vision Boards).

Work toward your goal, but don’t be attached to a particular outcome. Being attached to a specific outcome can get in the way of you receiving an even bigger blessing than the one you had in mind.

The essence of prayer is faith in a divine presence working in and through our lives. As such, stay open to guidance and trust that you are being guided to your highest good.

Question for reflection

What is one thing you can do this week to move your life in the direction of your prayers?
