In-between making the morning coffee, driving to work, and managing the daily pace of modern life, do you feel you’ve lost your connection to Spirit? Although that’s impossible (we are embodied spirit!) when this type of worry and self-doubt enters your mind, it’s important to find simple ways to connect with the Source energy. Keeping a joyous state of conscious awareness takes a bit of daily discipline, unless you save it for Sunday morning church or a full-blown yoga retreat. How about sprinkling Spirit around a little more frequently? Let’s learn to revitalize our connection regularly.

Embracing spirituality throughout the day is about assigning meaning to simple actions that celebrate your place in the universe. Here are three quick and easy tips to feel good (God’s presence) in-between the hub-bub:

Get centered and release emotional baggage from yesterday

Before you get out of bed, affirm the existence of your true self by centering your awareness. Feel the source of your spiritual power. Close your eyes and ask whether you have allowed anyone, or any circumstance, to take away your power to create the life you want. Do old hurts keep manifesting in your relationships? Make a commitment to release those feelings and know you are empowered with divine love. Breathe deeply and visualize a fresh, new canvas you are going to paint your experiences and desires.

Consciously create your day by recognizing the “I AM” presence within

Design your own mantra. “I am a channel for creativity and divine intelligence” or “I am open to the abundance of knowledge that the universe is which is present in me now.” Look in the mirror and acknowledge this simple invitation while getting dressed.

Go on a gratitude walk

Whether you have the luxury of walking on the beach, exercising the dog, or simply getting from the parking garage to the office, each step can be a silent prayer of thanks. Make each step toward the coffeepot a reason for thankfulness in your world. Mentally note at least 10 things you feel a strong sense of gratitude about and make each step resonate with silent appreciation.

The Law of Attraction states that we manifest exactly what we invite into our lives, by having great clarity and a passion for an idea. When you are thankful and filled with a sense of gratitude, you are attracting more things in your life to be thankful for!

Finally, breathe in loving-kindness and exhale gratitude for all you are and what you currently have today. Inhale everything on that shopping list of new ideas you’re planning to draw into your realm, whether it is a new job, more loving relationships, or even more balance. Once these energies are set into motion, not only does today take a positive shape, but tomorrow will begin to fall in place effortlessly. You’ll feel better by making meaning out of ordinary actions. Be creative in finding new ways to meditate that make sense to you!
