Doing your Work is your Spiritual Practice
By Marita Rahlenbeck
We are spiritual Beings having a human experience. What that means is doing your spiritual work of personal/spiritual transformation – getting to the root of things, on purpose or not – IS your spiritual practice.
By “on purpose” I mean you are actively seeking Divine Guidance. There’s a longing in your Soul you are consciously and intentionally seeking to fill by reading; learning; attending classes; exploring new ideas, concepts, experiences.
By “or not” I mean you have not yet figured out this journey on planet Earth is on purpose and you feel like you are floundering, have little hope for the future, do not see the possibilities for your greatness, but rather shrug your shoulders and say “why bother?”
I am “on purpose.”
I work with those who understand they are here “on purpose.”
And it is my hope that if you are in the “or not” camp, by the end of our short time together, you will see that you are indeed here WITH a purpose and choose to step over to the “on purpose” camp.
My journey began with my disillusionment around my life, my marriage, my faith. I went on a full charge expedition to figure out this thing called life, because what I was living was not living. It was existing. It was behaving in ways that others expected of me, and I was tired of it.
Maybe that’s how you feel? I help the quietly unhappy find hope. I was quietly unhappy and, honestly, I was the last person to see it. Sometimes it takes a mirror in the form of a good friend, a professional, a movie or book, to show us we are miserable.
That’s how it was for me.
So now that I have crawled out of that existence and created a fabulous world full of color, purpose, music, friends and so much more, I serve those that are in that place of disillusionment.
My viewpoint is that doing your Spiritual Work is indeed a Spiritual Practice. It’s THE most important spiritual practice you can and will ever do. You can meditate by sitting in the right posture, with your fingers in the correct mudras til kingdom come, but if you are not happy at the core of who you are, what does it matter?
Following that still small voice that you may call your Angels, God, Spirit, Universe – the word you use does not matter – but learning to recognize it does. Learning to listen to it does. Learning to act upon it does matter.
As a Soul Mentor, I work with people to show them the life they are seeking is not far away and that the process to get to where they long to be is not as difficult as it may seem. I can see things others cannot. My vantage point is higher, and I take them with me in the hopes they can catch a glimpse of their own greatness because when they see just a glimpse of who they really are, a sense of hope and awe is realized.
I offer mentoring sessions, virtual Soul Attunement intensives, Higher Brain Living sessions and co-lead Retreat to the Heart – a retreat to take you inward – fast yet gentle. In my mentoring, I suggest activities that are individualized. I do not have a systemized “if/then” approach because I understand and place value on individuality. Isn’t that a beautiful thing? It’s our differences that make life rich.
In my Higher Brain Living practice the work by its very nature takes people to a place of possibilities, joy, and confidence. This practice can literally connect you to your heart which, therefore, will change your life in delightful, unexpected ways.

Retreat to the Heart retreats incorporate going within and Higher Brain Living sessions with other like minded individuals. It affords a unique opportunity to meet yourself in a deeper way.
So where are you in your spiritual practice of taking control of your own spiritual destiny?
What are you doing that is propelling you ever closer to that place of your Divine Authentic Self?
Are you ready to step into yourself in a larger way?
