A Spiritual Practice to Make
Your Holidays More Holy
Make Ready to Enjoy the Blessings of the Holidays
Do you experience the holiday season as stressful or overwhelming? Would you like to have the Holy Days feel more enjoyable and significant?
Join our sacred practice to bring Peace on Earth and Good Will to All Beings and bless your own holiday season!
Last year, I invited people to join me in a spiritual practice to make their holidays more balanced, enjoyable and way less stressful. More than 130 people joined me. Amazingly, people responded with words like Wonderful, Loving this time, Very Holy. That was my experience as well. I found there was a special gift available when I turned my attention away from the prospect of how much I needed to do, and just immersed myself in sacred spiritual practice. As a bonus, it was one of the best holiday seasons I had in years.
Before you decide you can't do one more thing before the holidays because that will feel overwhelming, don't worry. You get to choose how much time and focus you have to spend on your spiritual practice.
I am introducing a concept, called an Anusthan, which is probably new for most Westerners, but it can be a powerful balm for the intensity of daily life during the holiday season.
An Anusthan is a dedicated spiritual practice that we do as a group for a certain period of time. My guru taught this practice at our ashram starting in 1978. I have done it numerous times since and it always gives me a powerful boost that fills me with spiritual strength.
I will begin my Anusthan on December 1, so that there is a dedicated 11-day period before December 12, when the sacred 12:12 portal brings the Force of Divine Light into our hearts.
Upon registration, you will receive a 26-page e-book that gives you choices of spiritual practices, prayers and mantras that you can do. You can choose practices that are most appealing to your own heart and for the amount of time you can spend. The dedication of the group intention together is the most important part.
Sanskrit Mantras will help raise your vibrational frequency and are proven helpful in scientific research for a number of things. Check out this message below from Kelly Brogan, MD – called Change Your Life in 12 Minutes.
Mind, Body & Soul Transformation
You'd probably think I was running an infomercial if I told you about a simple intervention that:
- Reverses memory loss
- Increases energy levels
- Improves sleep quality
- Up regulates positive genes
- Down regulates inflammatory genes
- Reduces stress in patient and caregiver
- Improves psychological and spiritual well being
- Activates significant anatomical areas of the brain
- Increases Telemerase, the rejuvenating enzyme that slows cell aging, by 43%, the largest ever recorded
- No side effects, no cost...especially if I told you the intervention takes 12 minutes out of your 1440-minute day.
So now that you know what we will be doing here is the scenario of an Anusthan. Each day for eleven days, we will sit in sacred space and raise our frequencies through our spiritual practice. And each day you will receive a beautiful message from Archangel Gabriel (who else would join our practice for Christmas?), as well as an update from me about how my Anusthan is going. I will share any comments and photos from the group also. It makes it very special when we see the altars and messages from people all over the world!
As a group Anusthan, my intention is for us to do a spiritual practice together that is dedicated to Peace on Earth and Good Will within All Beings.
As a bonus, the Light of Divine Love will birth in your heart to bring more Joy into your holiday season as well!
Each person will prepare personally with a special altar for the Anusthan, a candle, and an intention for their spiritual practice. Information about creating sacred space is provided in the e-book .
There is also a special caveat for those who need to travel or cannot be in the same place at the same time every day of the Anusthan. You can still dedicate the time, perhaps choosing a shorter practice to do, but giving yourself a dedicated time of 10 minutes or so in the morning or evening. I recommend you use a special scarf or a shawl that you can put around you every day for your practice. In that way, your inner being knows that you are in a dedicated practice. On a journey, you can take along a candle and perhaps a crystal that holds the energy of your Anusthan.
Ritual is stimulating to your inner spirit. Our inner child responds to the beauty and mystery inherent in a spiritual practice. A spiritual ritual that we do every day encourages gratitude and alignment with our Higher Selves and the Divine working in our lives. This ritual provides an immediate sensation of peace, love and heightened awareness that you can take into your daily life.
To birth new Light within our hearts and create Peace on Earth and Good Will within all beings, I am asking that we all set aside some time to focus on our group Anusthan. This can be as little as 20 minutes or less, or it can be longer according to your schedules.
It’s your spiritual practice, so any time that works best for you is your time.
Keep the basic practice that you do every day the same, and then you can add things if you have time. Know that waking up 20-30 minutes earlier will not make you any more tired during the day. In fact, research has shown that 10 minutes of meditation is equal to an hour of sleep.
When you go to the same place at the same time every day, power builds in the space and within you. Very soon, the minute you sit down, you can feel yourself growing more relaxed and ready to meditate. You will feel the frequency of your energy field uplifted, and you can attune yourself more easily with a higher state of inner wisdom. I have a light cotton shawl and a woolen one that I have been using for years in my spiritual practice, depending on the weather. As soon as I wrap one around my shoulders, I can feel myself sinking into a connected state for meditation. It is rather magical.
Ritual can be as simple as lighting a candle every day with the intention to bring more light into your life. It is a gift we give ourselves that can fill our “love cup” every day. When we take the simple steps of conscious breathing, prayer, and attunement—even if we only have five minutes of quiet meditation time—we become in harmony with the universal flow of life.
I am going to suggest a number of English and Sanskrit phrases for you to choose from (Mantras). Please choose one or two to say every day at least 7-21 times. You can choose to do more, but make sure that you do the same ones every day and you do not create a burden on yourself. The idea is to make it very simple for you to do this practice in the midst of your daily life before the holidays begin.
Upon registration, you will receive a beautiful guide in PDF format to download. The Anusthan Guidelines booklet includes instructions for:
- Creating an Intention for the Day
- Traditional Guidelines Regarding Spiritual Practice
- Information About Creating a Sacred Space
- An Every Day Sample Practice
- Mantra Yoga (a sacred sound vibration that will raise your frequency)
- Mantras and Phrases Suggestions (English & Sanskrit)
- Walking Mantras
- Advanced Mantras to join in my personal Spiritual Practice
I will transmit an initiation to you for the mantras during our meditation. In addition, I will be checking in during our Anusthan time, and you can also contact me.
To join this wonderful group in spiritual practice in preparation for the holidays and receive the Anusthan Guidelines booklet, I am asking a donation of $22 to cover expenses. There is no charge for the spiritual practice itself.
May this spiritual practice bless your holidays and bless your life!
Comments about last year's Anusthan:
I have been doing the Anusthan since the 1st - very wonderful after a fabulous & exhausting family Thanksgiving! Thank you Dear One for all you do to help us be Lights in the world.
Loving this time/very holy.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering the Anusthan practice. I am just loving it and soaking it in and find myself looking forward to the time. Is there a reason that this practice is done for limited periods of days? I realize I don't like the idea of stopping it after the 7 days. In addition to feeling grounded and uplifted and light filled.
