So what have I learned from this first week, well that is easy there is no distinction between spirit and mundane. All actions carried out with intention are spiritual.
The change really began around Wednesday when I could almost feel the spiral of peace, which I normally felt while in prayer spreading to the other parts of my life. This sense of peace became my constant centre. I have to describe this feeling as a spiral as it does have movement and an sense of expansion. It was from this centre that I began to notice the constant chat with the spirits. I am feeling my house spirits more and becoming closer to them. I have noticed little things like the house seems tidier. Now this could just be a projection of a tidier mind seeing more order in my usual chaos but I am happy with the notion that the house spirits are pleased with me and helping out a bit more.
Is it worth bringing structure to your life? Well for me the answer has to be a resounding yes but I know this is truly not for everyone. Has this week changed me? Again a huge yes! My attachment to TV has lessened. I think I have seen two full programmes this week and one movie and that was Yentl and anything with Barbara Streisand should not be missed. So that does not count. I am exercising so that can only be a good thing! I am eating at regular times and so my digestion is improving and all in all I feel less stressed.
Today getting up to say Morning Prayer was a joy. I am starting the second week with a spring in my step and ready to take this journey further.
