In today’s crazy world, it’s so easy to get caught up in the business of it all. From social media to online streaming, to working too hard and too long at our jobs, it can leave us feeling absolutely spent. In order to counteract this, we need to refill our tanks, and one of the best ways to do this is by planning a sacred moment into our daily lives.
What is a sacred moment?
The meaning of “sacred” is something that is connected with God or dedicated to a religious purpose. We all have our own beliefs – some of them are traditional and are a part of a formal religion, others are more fluid and personal. Whatever you believe, allowing yourself a sacred moment each day is vital for personal spiritual growth.
What do I mean by a sacred moment? That depends on how you like to connect with your spiritual world. Some like to pray, others meditate. Perhaps you feel connected to the divine through song, or a silent walk.
We’re told that there is only one way talk to God/our maker/the universe/whatever you want to call it. That prayers need to be formal, addressed to the sendee, and signed off with a flourish. And indeed there are many people that enjoy that, but if that’s not your cup of tea, then don’t feel like you can’t connect in other ways.
Connecting in a unique way that opens up your heart and mind to the greater powers that be can only be a good thing. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
Why you should connect
Why is it important to have these sacred moments? Because our spiritual wellbeing is an integral part of our overall wellness. If our spirit is well, we are more likely to feel good too.
Spiritual wellbeing also makes us more mindful and grateful for our existence and blessings. It also gives us an outlet for our emotions and thoughts, and might possibly lead to answers and solutions.
When to plan sacred moments
There is no right answer to how often you should find the time for a sacred moment. For those who currently set aside no time for this, once a week might seem like a big commitment, and that’s absolutely fine.
You need to do what works for you, and build things up slowly.
How do you connect yourself to the world, spiritually? Do you plan sacred moments? Or do you allow them to manifest naturally?
