Doing what you do “with love” is the only way to accumulate sprititual power and merit. If you are moving from guilt, obligation, or force, you will not receive the results you are seeking.
As you choose to build up the spiritual aspect of your nature~do it with Love. The love of knowing that everyday you have committed time to do something that will be yours for eternity. You are adding to your account of consciousness. Keep this appointment with yourself. This teaches kindness and respect to the self and strengthens your determination to overcome distractions, carelessness, and laziness.
Start your day right, by carving out some morning time that is dedicated to You. Make it spiritually significant to you. Then it will be easier throughout the day to enjoy moments when you connect in with your Self again. Being able to quickly recognize that you are a soul, by affirming this truth through a simple statement such as: “I am a peaceful soul” as you sip water throughout the day, empowers every cell in the water, as well as every cell in your body. Choose a simple statement that resonates deeply~choose a statement that is most likely to ignite your light! Starting with peace is a powerful step.
Even the most basic practice, repeated consistently, can bring enormous benefit. You may also add to this by saying I am a peaceful soul 10 to 20 times as you cook, do your laundry, as you are driving or as you go about your work day.
As you walk to your car or to the bus, continue to affirm to yourself…I am a peaceful soul. This small step qualifies you to enter a wonderful spiritual doorway. You are entering into your true reality, that of a spiritual being of light.
You may feel that it is not easy to live in this world and to be spiritual. Granted there are definitely forces at foot to pull us down. An easy method to lift yourself time and time again and to fuel your consciousness is to have easy access to thoughts which make your soul smile, which refresh and restore your stamina. Thoughts, which as soon as you think them, give you a spiritual rush and transport you from ordinary consciousness to a higher state of awareness. It does take effort to redirect thoughts. The choice is yours, would you rather have thoughts that elevate you or thoughts that limit you, keep you stuck, or even depress you? As we understand on deeper and deeper levels, that thought creates reality, this practice takes on more meaning and importance.
Take the thought that “I am a powerful soul, full of spiritual power”. Yes, I am a powerful soul despite any weaknesses that I have acquired over time. The reality of my original state of being is that I am a powerful soul. Allow yourself to accept this thought. Allow the feelings behind the thought to come into your experience of yourself; this will happen as you contemplate on the spiritual truth of the thought. “Yes, I am a powerful soul, I feel my spiritual well-being rising.” Such contemplations guide us into positive experiences of power.
“As you palpably feel the fullness of your spiritual energy, that experience is imprinted in your subconscious mind. It becomes a new reality that you can access. Over time, with regular reinforcement, this subconscious imprint will begin to impact the activity of your conscious mind and I am a powerful soul will color your attitudes, perceptions, and beliefs…i.e. this reality will become first nature to you.” from: De Carteret, Soul Power p.71
