This morning during my NIA class, we danced our devotion. Throughout the movements, I sunk deeper into contemplation about what it is that I’m devoted to, and how well do I practice?
Devotion is that something that we are committed to so deeply that every cell of our body resonates with a resounding yes.
For me, at the top of my list is my Spiritual Practice. Mainly because my life doesn’t work without a full recognition and invitation to the Divine to co-create my life and my journey. Goddess is my silent partner, providing guidance, clarity, and balance with each step.
My devotion to God and my Spiritual Practice spills over into my purpose because my purpose is created out of that partnership. It’s a deep knowing that “this” is what I’m supposed to be doing. It feels bigger than me, it feels right, it feels extraordinary, and it flows when approached from my Divine Expression.
Everything falls into alignment when we recognize our divinity behind all things. In this holy place of devotion, we see that our bodies are not just thrift store garments. They are temples. From this consciousness of devotion, we give our bodies what they need, nurturing and nourishing them to express their inherent wholeness.
Our dwelling is no longer just a place to toss our things. It becomes a place of worship. A sacred sanctuary to receive us after a day well spent. Our holy space can envelop us in warmth, joy, and serenity when we devote time and energy to its full expression.
As the recognition of this devotion to Spirit continues to spread, it moves our relationships into conduits for Spirit’s love and grace. Even the “difficult” ones become opportunities to see the face of God.
With those who are closest to our heart, we get to experience a divine union of extraordinary celebration. An energetic vitality that fills us with a deep sense of Oneness. All obstacles melt away, revealing only God.
One of the greatest gifts in being devoted to a daily spiritual practice is the ability to release worry, doubt, fear, and limitation. After all, if God is for us, who can be against us?
I invite you to commit to a life of fullness, richness, and wholeness that you can devote yourself to. Namaste.
