Dear Astrology Room
I just wondered, if you have any tips on how to connect to myself on a more spiritual level? I have managed it on several occasions through taking walks in nice parks and such, but the weather in England usually isn't nice enough for me to go outside without my lungs creasing up and my nose dripping. How can i stay motivated to be spiritual? Because that is when i am at my happiest. And recently i have lost sight of how to get there, and how to stay there. I am a Taurus, by the way.
What a beautiful question. There are many answers, as I'm sure you realise yourself. But each one leads to the state of spiritual connection you are seeking. And in reading the works of great philosophers, mystics, and spiritual teachers you can see that a sense of spiritual connection does fluctuate for us all, and needs to be refreshed and renewed. Mostly, it seems, the answers lie in the small things - as you say yourself, a walk in the park for instance. The weather is often off-putting, but looking at the sunset, the sky, or the Moon certainly widens our sense of the world we live in. Walking, swimming, yoga, dancing - any joyful physical activity can open the door to that feeling of being at one with yourself. Keeping a journal with notes on your dreams, intuitions, and things that inspire you is another regular practice that benefits many of us. Listening to music, lighting a candle, or cooking a meal can be creative spiritual experiences if you focus on them and let other thoughts drift away. Some people like to meditate every day - it's easy to find books and classes on this, and there are so many kinds I'm sure you can find something that works for you that you can make part of your daily life. Just experiment, be kind to yourself, and I am certain you'll find more than one way to keep your mind, body, and spirit in harmony.
