How to Connect with the Universe Spiritually
1. Practice Daily Gratitude
Connecting with source is to be in a state of abundance, appreciation, and to recognise the connectedness of all things.
The opposite is an expression of lack, disappointment, and separateness.
Focusing on what you are grateful for will help you stay open to the idea that abundance is already in your life and that more can come.
Give yourself time each day to notice the things you do have, instead of what is missing.
You’ll soon realise that the connection to source isn’t something you focus on outside of yourself, but something from within.
When you know that everything you’ll ever need comes from within your own essence, you’ll begin to manifest with minimal effort.
To begin this practice, spend the next few days thanking everything you come into contact with.
Even the difficult things. Say thank you and see how everything is playing a part for your higher good.
So, as you engage in these practices and learn how to connect with source energy.
2. Give Love Unconditionally
To love unconditionally means to love someone without any conditions or limitations.
Most people withold from giving unconditional love, because they are affraid of being taken advantage of.
However, what most people don’t realize is that they can say no and still love unconditionally.
You do this by being yourself and allowing the other person to be themselves, yet maintaining healthy boundaries and respect for each other.
When you have confidence that people will do the right thing, the more caring and giving you will be.
You recognize the people who take advantage of others do so because they are lacking unconditional love in their life, often a result of challenging life experiences.
These people have been denied love by their parents or a toxic relationship, it forced them to act like someone they’re not.
Now they believe they have to act or be a certain way to receive love. And when this belief doesn’t hold up, they need to manipulate to get what they need.
Instead of focussing on what they’re missing, they can grieve the loss they feel and give themselves the love they missed out on.
When they feel a deep sense of unconditional love for themselves, they will have more than enough to give it to those who truly matter to them.
3. Connect with nature
Making a connection with the natural world can provide an immensely powerful source of clarity, guidance and insight.
Nature provides a tranquil, calming and instructive environment that can help us focus on the intent of our desires much more powerfully.
One of the ways we can connect with nature is through outdoor activities such as hiking, rock-climbing or even just taking a slow walk in the park.
We show respect for Mother Nature by participating in activities that don’t harm the environment or cause disruption to their serenity and beauty.
Being outdoors surrounded by nature also gives us the opportunity to appreciate its significance while allowing our minds to be free from all distractions.
Doing this consistently brings you closer to the truth that we are all part of nature.
Humans and nature aren’t separate. We are one with nature and part of an interconnected web that source reflects back to us.
We realize there is no separation between us and anything else in the universe, and this awareness contributes to our spiritual growth.
That we are source energy, experiencing the illusion of separateness, and that it is our recognition of divine selves that bridges the connection to the universe.
Once you are rooted in this understanding, your experience of connecting with the universe becomes a reality, shifting from concept to genuine, felt awareness.
4. Loving-kindness meditation
Loving-kindness meditation, or Metta meditation, is a spiritual practice that cultivates a state of positive emotion in the practitioner.
It may be used to bring happiness, contentment, compassion and joy in oneself, as well as developing relationships with others.
Practitioners aim to bring warm emotions of love towards the source of their being and allow it to spread outwards to all things.
This meditation can be done anywhere and anytime.
To practice this method, begin by sitting quietly and connecting with your inner world, become aware of your body, breath and thoughts.
Aspects of loving kindness are then invoked either through visualization or verbally affirming phrases such as “May I be happy”, “May I be safe” or “May I be free from suffering”.
Then allow the feelings of gratitude to grow, while repeating these phrases several times until they become grounded in these feelings.
By giving thanks for all things both good and bad that come into our lives we can create authentic abundance.
Through continued practice we can learn to love ourselves fully, accept our imperfections while noticing the perfection in everything around us.
Breathwork is a powerful modality for healing negative energy and cultivating clarity and insight.
It can have an incredibly profound impact on our overall mental, physical, and energetic well-being.
Through conscious breathwork, we can connect to vast reservoirs of universal energy that are already present in the body and tap into deep inner wisdom that was previously inaccessible.
By experimenting with various techniques, we can gradually open up both subtle (energetic) and overt (mental) blocks to move towards a fuller realization of our potential.
The practice of breathwork incorporates various deep, conscious breathing patterns accompanied by movement, vocalization, imagery or visualization exercises depending on the method being used.
Oftentimes each exercise is paired with music in order to release tension from both body and mind.
Practiced on a regular basis can unlock dormant expressions of ourselves that prevent us from connecting with source.
Breathwork puts us into a state of presence and quietens the egoic stories that limit our potential.
So, if you’ve been asking yourself “how to connect to the universe?”, start with these simple yet profoundly effective methods outlined above and experience the magic that occurs when your life becomes a harmonious part of the universal order.
6. Grounding yourself
Grounding yourself is one of the most crucial aspects of connecting with source energy for easier and more successful manifesting.
Grounding is the process by which you become deeply connected to your physical experience and environment, center within yourself, and access a state of greater clarity.
When you take time to ground and connect with the universe this way, you’re better able to understand your current reality and tap into intuitive wisdom.
There are many different ways that you can ground youself.
Common methods include meditation, yoga, tai chi or finding moments throughout your day to just be still and focus on your breath.
Other grounding techniques include:
- Going for a walk in nature (connecting with the earth)
- Engaging in creative activities such as painting or drawing, drumming or playing music (connecting with rhythm)
- Exercise (connecting with your strength)
- Massage therapy (connecting with touch)
- Or taking a few moments each day to practice gratitude (connecting with appreciation)
These are just some of the many ways that one can ground themselves in order to access source energy more easily for better manifestation process.
The important thing is that you find what works best for you – so take some time to explore different options and find what resonates the most.
And also don’t forget, there’s no ‘best time to connect with universe’, it’s always the right time, wherever you are in your spiritual journey.
7. Healing the chakras
Healing the chakras can help to open us up to manifesting our dreams through connecting us with higher sources of energy.
Chakras are energy centers within the body, which are different wheels of energetic connections that correspond to specific physical, emotional and spiritual issues.
When unbalanced energy flows through the chakras it can reduce the ability to manifest things into our life and experience oneness.
Balancing the seven main chakras will help increase your vibration and help you connect with the Universe.
The first is the root chakra, located in the physical body at the based of the spine.
It’s connected to grounding and trusting in life’s nourishment; it supports having a secure foundation upon which everything is based.
The second is the sacral chakra, located just below the navel. It helps us tap into feelings, emotions and creative expression while also fostering self worth and acceptance.
It also helps us move beyond feeling stuck in life on an emotional level, allowing flexible change over time rather than staying fixed in one way of being.
The third is the solar plexus, which provides grounding, but also empowers us to take action when needed, as well as helping protect ourselves from taking on other people’s energies instead of our own power.
It’s about engaging with life instead of being passive or feeling like a victim of circumstance.
The heart chakra connects us with love, both receiving and giving love freely and aligning our vibration with generosity rather than lack; connecting us to feel communion on an emotional level.
The heart also bridges heaven and earth – aligning past, present & future within each moment we are living in consciously joining all as one.
The fith is the throat chakra, which balances both speaking truth & listening deeply for greater understanding. It allows for free communication without fear or criticism, bridging the connection between others that can create more harmony & cooperation.
Moreover, it opens up creativity & expression along with a deeper understanding of ourselves & those around us.
The sixth is the third eye chakra, located between the eyebrows. It’s associated with the color indigo and connected to the pineal gland, the eyes, and the brain.
This chakra is believed to be the center of intuition, imagination, and insight.
When the third eye chakra is awakened, you experience increased intuition, imagination, and the ability to think outside the box. You may also have a greater sense of focus and clarity in their thoughts.
Finally, the seventh is the crown chakra, located at the top of the head and is believed to be the center of spirituality, enlightenment, and higher consciousness.
When this chakra is balanced, a person may experience feelings of inner peace, clarity of thought, and connection to their spiritual side.
Each of us is a part of this universal consciousness, a unique essence within the Universe, and the more we tap into this understanding, the more we will see the truth in the statement ‘we are connected to the universe’.
