Huta Niyama - Building Spiritual Rituals

There are 10 Yamas and 10 Niyamas - yogic take on human values and ethical practices that help us reach our full potential for personal, spiritual, and professional growth, and to liberate us from the repetitive cycle of suffering. When we live in contradiction to the highest values, when we avoid taking the higher road -  we get stuck in a rat. 

 

This month we are diving deeper into developing a daily practice of connecting to our inner spirit, our inner wisdom, and the greater consciousness.

Just like many traditions light a candle, leave flowers at a shrine, or bow to a deity statute - we too can create a ritual that works for us to remember our spirit. Today, while our life is full of distractions, and celebrity - influence,  it is so easy to forget our own inner depth, our beautiful essence. To help you remember your own connection to the divine, your own ingenuity and beauty, I invite you to develop a self-honoring ritual you can look forward to every day. While in ancient rituals they sacrificed all kinds of unthinkable things, today, to connect to our higher selves - we only have to sacrifice the screentime. 

 

5 Ideas For Developing Daily Spiritual Rituals: 

1. If you love morning tea like myself - wake up early and sit quietly with your favorite cup, think of a few things you are grateful for, watch the sunrise for 10 minutes, and enjoy your own special company. To make it extra mindful - burn a little sage or sprinkle cinnamon into your drink, soak into your senses as you enjoy your meditative quiet time. To connect with myself, I do morning breathwork and a mini-workout routine before I begin to tackle all daily projects. 

2. At night - you can light a candle, spray lavender mist, and take a long shower or fill up a bath - that could be your ritual of connecting to yourself, quiet time to listen to the insight. 

3. Getting into bed at night - read a few pages of a spiritual book. Or, open your journal and write a few moments of the day you're grateful for, And maybe a lesson or two too.  Before falling asleep, I like to recite a prayer for everyone's well-being. 

4. A daily visit to the church of your choice. For me, it's yoga - whatever form it is - movement, breathwork, meditation, or reading a philosophy book.

5. A daily ritual of keeping things neat: place all items you use into their places once done, clean all dishes, and wipe the surrounding surfaces. Every act of beautifying your environment can be your daily spiritual ritual, your time to connect to the inner calm and wisdom, to your essential nature.

I love the old Buddhist saying: whenever you have a free minute - go sweep the sidewalk. 

What could be your ritual to honor your spirit? To check on your inner weather? To connect to your heart, grace and wisdom?
