Spiritual Practices help to establish and facilitate a conscious awareness, experience and demonstration of our spiritual being. As we increase our spiritual awareness through consistent engagement of principle and practice, we create opportunities for the full expression and realization of who we truly are and what we are capable of bringing into our human experience. Therefore, consistent and daily spiritual practice is not an option.
While there are many adjunct practices that assist in the evolution of consciousness, the following practices are powerful and proven in promoting spiritual realization.
1 – Affirmative Prayer
Affirmative prayer grounds us in a solid awareness of oneness with Spirit. The power of affirmative prayer sets in motion a process of healing false beliefs that prevents us from fully realizing our spiritual potential. Prayer is an intimate communion with Spirit.
2 – Meditation
Meditation techniques serve to help us go beyond our focus on the body, mind and environment, allowing a deeper communion with Spirit, increasing our capacity to receive the guidance of Spirit, and opening us to such experiences as patience, peace, spiritual inspiration and insight.
3 – Spiritual Study
At every stage of growth and development on the spiritual path, it is important to deepen knowledge and understanding of spiritual principles and truths towards the promise, practice and actualization of our spiritual nature. We are a community committed to more profound levels of wisdom, learning, development and demonstration through spiritual study, which may include classes, groups, and the use of technology like Master Minding. With discipline, there is growth.
4 – Spiritual Community
Committed participation in a spiritual community accelerates our individual spiritual evolution. When individuals gather together to meditate, pray, study and practice, their united consciousness contributes to the spiritual progress of each individual and the collective consciousness. The community also offers the opportunity to cultivate deeper connection, compassion and tolerance, as well as service to others. When support and encouragement is needed, the community serves to assist in our positive forward movement and growth.
5 –Law of Circulation
As we mature in our understanding of the law of circulation, it becomes obvious that the sharing of our financial resources, talents, skills, and time is at the heart of this practice. And, in grateful recognition of our continued growth and well-being in all areas of life, we actively support the valuable missions and teachings which are shared in community for the evolution of all.
6 – Surrender
Surrender offers a letting go of our sense of attachment to one way of seeing or being that allows for receiving spiritual guidance and taking purposeful action. Surrender includes releasing resistance and negativity, practicing forgiveness, and embracing an attitude of unshakable trust and conviction in our spiritual goodness and oneness with Spirit.
7 – Action
We are committed to intentional and purposeful action that includes alignment with spiritual principles, and the use of tools and practices that make evident in demonstrable ways our thought, word, behavior, and the manifestation of outcomes as spiritual beings. Our responsibilities include the demonstration of our ability to create through our alignment with Spirit, individually and as a community.
