Spiritual mutts and quilts of devotion. Can you relate?

I’m a spiritual mutt. I’m a bit Catholic. Plenty Buddhist. A touch Sikh-Pagan-Tantric. A whole lot metaphysical. Organized religion never worked for me but neither did a lot of meditation practices. So I’ve done with my spiritual practice what I’ve done with most things in my life: I made it up, until it fit just right.

Some days, I work with prayer. My esoteric learning has me feeling at ease to invoke and evoke support from Higher Beings — from the Supreme God to my personal cosmic crew. And sometimes, I just riff on an old Hail Mary because it’s a comforting memory from growing up Catholic, and it’s my way of calling on the Divine Feminine that day. Hail Mary, Full of grace…

Some evenings I’ll silently chant a single mantra, 108 times. Most mornings I do some form of meditation-visualization…5 minutes, 60 minutes. Depends. Somedays devotion looks like 10km on a rowing machine, and with every stroke I incant power words…clarity, pull, stamina, pull, luminous, pull, love, pull. Works for me.

And that’s the point…creating a spiritual practice that WORKS FOR YOU. Because too heavy, joyless, overly strict, boring — those are not the ways to higher consciousness. I think enlightenment is mostly about figuring out who we are as individuals.

You are the mystery to solve — not how life works necessarily but how YOU work.

Some of us will find a singular faith practice that suits us perfectly. But a lot of us will need to stitch together our own quilt of devotion. We will cut the patches with non-conformity and thread them with resonance. And it will look funky and beautiful, rebellious and worshipful. It will resemble loneliness and community, certainty and longing. It will fit just…righteous.

Went one whole year with no psychic or astro readings, channellings, or workshops. I call it an input fast. And I lost a lot of psychic weight.

Summoning all cosmic beings for support? It's better if you just focus

Summoning all cosmic beings for support? It’s better if you just focus.

You know how when you’re really messed up and you reach out to EVERY friend? You text them ALL at once in case the one person you really want to talk to isn’t responding IMMEDIATELY. And then you feel kind of dirty after because you got all frantic and spread your nuttiness around when really, you could have just connected with your one friend who tells you the truth every single time? I think it works the same way with angels and cosmic guides.

I’ll just go out on a limb and say it: MEDITATION—or some form of contemplation or prayer—is ESSENTIAL for your sanity and fulfillment.

Pleasure-is-power

Your pleasure is your power…here’s how to get there, a few hours at a time.

When you’re in your pleasure you think more clearly, you’re more efficient, you’re most certainly more creative, and you’re more loving. Your pleasure states are good for your immune system.

CONSCIOUS gratitude

CONSCIOUS gratitude (as in SMART gratitude. Rather than the spiritual bypassing kind of gratitude that can actually screw you up).

Gratitude changes your brain chemistry. Proven. Happy brain chemicals mean that you’ve got more clarity and courage. Proven. There are zero downsides to making gratitude part of your wellness practice.
