Through our Daily Spiritual Practice we create…

New Habits

On the physical plane, we are creatures of habits. Neuroscientists and spiritual leaders mostly agree that 90% of what the typical human being does is out of habit. Haven’t you driven somewhere and realized you didn’t even remember driving? Or, how about your morning routine, realizing how automated you are at everything from brushing your teeth to making the bed. We just do what we have done. Until we have awoken, the best way to predict the future is by the past.

As we begin to become consciously awake, we start to create new habits and feel alive again! We break the patterns that no longer serve us. Our new commitment to ‘right thinking’ and ‘right action’ manifest into a liberated life. It has been proven in science that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Dr. Maxwell Malz wrote the bestseller ‘Psycho-Cybernetcs’ where he shows how amputees stop feeling phantom sensations after 21 days. He claims that engrams, which are memory traces, produce neuron connections and neuro-pathways, are changed in 21 days.

Other spiritual leaders and great writing state that it takes 40 days to Re-Birth! The bible along with many great spiritual practices state that 40 days is the path: The Book of Genesis, The book of Exodus, the story of Moses being on the mount for 40 days and 40 nights, ancient writings and artifacts (including certain monuments) make it clear that a cycle of 40 days was once carefully time tracked, Buddha sat under the tree for 40 days. There are so many amazing spiritual stories that reference 40 days, as a reference for the solar year. Yet, we go beyond committing to 21 days or 40 days, we commit to our soul for eternity!

“Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become character. And watch your character for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.” -Margaret Thatcher
