One of the best ways to expand your consciousness is to practice some spiritual exercises. I’m not talking about knowledge. you can read as many books as you want about everything from god to quantum physics, and while your knowledge of these subjects will be much greater, your consciousness will remain the same. Knowledge helps give context and understanding. but it’s in the action that true expansion begins.

Here’s a few spiritual exercises that can help you expand your consciousness quickly.

1. Appreciation

Sounds simple — is profound. If you make a daily habit of sitting for even 10 minutes to write a list of all the things you appreciate, in a month’s time you will expand your vibrational frequency and deepen your spiritual understanding of the preciousness of this life.

2. Meditate

Or pray. But take 15–25 minutes every day to bring your mind into at least the alpha, if not the theta state. When you do this, you build your capacity to handle stress and are much more able to handle life on your own terms. This means that where stress once consumed time and energy, you now have room for spirit to dwell.

3. ‘Yoke’ the body

The word ‘yoga’ means to ‘yoke’ together the spirit and body. Don’t worry you don’t have to be a gumby to do a little yoking of your own. Even if you sit still and totally focus on using the breath to both initiate and complete a movement — say raising and lowering an arm — in time you’ll start to unify your mind with your spirit.

4. Keep a journal

You can keep a journal where you communicate with whatever you consider to be most sacred. Whether you want to engage in a dialogue with God, ask questions of your Higher Self, request help from your Guardian Angels or simply give thanks to Source, a journal grounds you in the physical act of paying homage to Spirit.

5. Share with a friend

Find a spiritual buddy to share with. You may want to do a dream exchange, create spiritual songs or do sacred dances. Maybe you just want to share your perceptions and experiences of the Divine Hand in your life. It’s up to you. But by sharing with another, you exponentially expand the pleasure of connecting with what is most sacred to you.

Your turn!

Do you do something regularly to connect with spirit? Maybe you are part of a spiritual community like a church. Maybe you say prayers before each meal. Whatever it is, please share with us in the comments below.

    We use HOLOSYNC by Centerpointe to achieve the proper state of mind necessary to meditate and have been for almost four years. It works for us….one hour, when possible, a day….and no less than thirty minutes. Our lives have changed dramatically….

    i am communicating on a daily basis with the Angels and Archangels/ Ascended Masters. I do a very gentle form of Yoga called Maridian (Polarity) Exercise.  This helps me being centered and appreciating what i have and what i have achieved in life.

  • I try to remember (and record, mentally or physically) any important dream content if that is present, and I trace my meridians and check in with Chakras and general energies that may need attention every morning. I check in with Spirit often!

    my online friend Shafin De Zhane the author of Redefine Your Reality challenged my theme of prayer that in stead of asking the universe to provide me all the time I must ask the universe How can I serve it? and this has made me to pay more gratitudes and my prayers are more than 90% gratitudes and the rest is to ask the universe How can I serve it! and listen for answers as I medidate.

    Appreciation and Praying have made unmeasurable effects in my life. I feel so spiritually connected all the time that I have to shake myself up and remind that I am still physically here in this World :)

    I have devised my own system of chakra balancing and positive affirmations.  It is base on the Silva Mind Control Method, Burt Goldman’s Mind Box and Chakra Balancing that I developed from listening to a subliminal CD.  It helps to keep me balanced.
