Today I set three little Owls, a cluster, a family of hoot hoots as my youngest babe calls them, upon an area that I save for morning ritual practice, a simple act of lighting candles in peace and calmness for the day; Well, I saved it for such a practice. I carried out such a practice. Yet that practice subsided. It fell to the way side as my lack of devotion to my own self, silence and sanity overwhelmed me almost to the point of zero.

As I set this new addition of family owls in place I heard the words,

 “Your spiritual practice is so important. It sets you up for the day. Focuses you, connects you, settles you. Devotion to spiritual practice no matter what practice it is, is important to follow through with.”
And as those words settled into my ears, settled into my being, I realised the enormity of the simplest practices, the daily rituals that keep us from wandering off the path, our path, the practices that give us peace of mind. And I realised the personal importance of it all for me. I realised that to be kind to myself means to be carrying out my spiritual practices, to be devoted to carrying out practices daily and consistently. It’s important because it’s good for me. It’s important because its good for us! It is important because it creates clarity and connection!
So no matter what you are going through or where you are at in your life right now. No matter what ‘spiritual practice’ you undertake or code you live by, find some time to breathe in your day, find some time to be silent, to connect, to be at peace. Devote yourself to you, to your spiritual practice, your mindfulness, your meditation, your ritual. Find time for yourself every day to connect in with the spirit of your self and the spirit of oneness. Devote to you, devote to your practices and allow this simple act of devotion room to impact your life, your entire being, in a peaceful and positive way.
