DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 30 Days of Faith, Hope, Prayer, and Gratitude – Day 22 “A Deeper Surrender to the Practice”
Today’s Body Connection: Yoga is a practice that requires a deep surrender. Most of us are challenged by flexibility because of the inflexibility within our lives. When the mind and spirit are unwilling to move and relinquish control, there is a stiffening within our being. During the practice, it is time for our inner self to speak. True Yoga is the ability to be present in the pose and hear the message of transformation. The next time you become aware of a flexibility challenge, I invite you to be still and ask the question, “Where am I being called to let go and stretch?”
Meditative Thought: Prayer is the deepest form of communion with God. When we are truly in the depths of the practice, the universe takes over every part of the mind, body, and spirit. There is no thinking, contemplation, or asking God for anything. We let go of all things outside of ourselves and we surrender to the “I AM” that lives within us. We let go of all fears, doubts, and worries and we allow the presence of Spirit to take over.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, surrender to the God as you pray, allowing the prayer to pray you instead of praying the prayer.
Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I allow the power of God to pray through me. Amen
