What spiritual thing have you done lately?


I closed the other thread with a similar title so we could start afresh. I like the idea of keeping a bit of a log of what I do so that I can see how it might help/hinder my spiritual workings. I hope others join in here!

So, what spiritual thing have you done lately? Tell us all about it!

I've been working on Centering/Grounding myself, and trying to manipulate energy, so that some day I may do some energy work...emoticon

Today, I managed to spend some time in the dirt! That is spiritual for me. It seems to re-energize me, and give me a peace.

I think reading the Exploring the Pagan Path book has been a good exercise for me. Even though it's a very '101' sort of book, it has me thinking about assumptions and generalizations about paganism. Also, I packed up all my witchy books (we are moving the reading room from the back of the house to make Willa's new playroom - they shouldn't be in storage more than a few weeks before the new bookcases arrive!). It was nice to look through the titles again and be reminded of things in them. I think I need to do more reading!

Some of those books may be fodder for future book discussions, Texas emoticon

Re: What spiritual thing have you done lately?


I'm not sure it's really spiritual, but I draw my daily Tarot card and write in my journal every morning.

And yesterday, I sat down with a book and lit a couple of candles before I went to bed.

Of course, I also send up lots of little prayers all the time, addresing them to the "guys up there", or to the "goddess", or just to the "universe".

On the other hand, I want to do what Queeny is doing, grounding and centering to find my inner calm and strength. Would be helpful to get there.

I think the daily tarot is spiritual Firle. It keeps you tuned in to something "other"...which is about as good a definition as spiritual as I can ever come up with!

I've been thinking about grounding and centering too. Might need to make a challenge to get everyone doing it!

Re: What spiritual thing have you done lately?


Grounding and centering isn't the easiest thing, but it's very much do-able.
The hardest thing for me is to keep outside thoughts from creeping in while I'm working on ME. Things that have no bearing on me getting grounded or [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] do I want to do for supper tomorrow night. Or, do I really want to go [sign in to see URL] have to keep pulling myself back from that.

Grounding alone, to me, is not hard at all. I generally sit on the floor, or if/when possible, on the actual ground, the palms of my hands flat on the ground on either side of me, and I imagine roots growing from my fingers and the palms of my hands, into the [sign in to see URL], I imagine roots growing from my feet and legs, into the [sign in to see URL] any other part of my body that is touching the [sign in to see URL], I start again with my fingers, and imagine all the tension running, like sap, out my fingertips and down the finger [sign in to see URL] with all the other 'roots' I've 'created', and as that's all flowing out in one direction, energy is coming back in... It's like, 2 roots per finger, [sign in to see URL] is for releasing, one is for gaining. I assign [sign in to see URL] is usually red or orange, and the energy is either purple or blue....

I've not done this in a while. Certainly wouldn't hurt for me to do it!
As for anything else Spiritual, I've really not done anything at all, lately. emoticon

Re: What spiritual thing have you done lately?


Thanks for the description, Saijen!

I've only tried to do it standing up, with roots growing down from my feet. And usually, my imagination runs away from me, and I do it so quickly it seems to have no effect.
