Just as physical exercise helps you build physical vitality, spiritual exercises help you build spiritual vitality. A spiritual exercise can be as simple as relaxing and singing the word HU, an ancient name for God. As we practice these spiritual exercises, we learn to recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We learn that each of us is Soul, a spark of God sent to this world to gain spiritual experience.
These exercises are simple and straightforward will lead to a greater awareness of your life and its divine meaning. You can expect gradual changes in your outlook on life over a period of weeks or months.
The spiritual exercises can help in many areas of life including:
Master your fate
Protect yourself spiritually
Achieve balance and harmony
Soul Travel into the splendid worlds of God
These exercises also help us to move into greater states of consciousness. People of any faith can use these spiritual exercises to find answers to their questions about this life and the afterlife.
Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier.
“HU is woven into the language of life. It is the Sound of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. . . . Its sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream. And yet, the word HU is not God. It is a word people anywhere can use to address the Originator of Life.”
This class is presented as a community service by Eckankar, a spiritual path, which teaches contemplation and techniques to help us understand our life and our dreams and spiritual experiences.
This video explains how we meet with our God through, prayer, meditation or contemplation.
This video explains spiritual freedom and how spiritual exercises and the HU Song help us meet life.
A Simple Spiritual Exercise
You are invited to try this simple spiritual exercise. It has helped people of many different faiths open their hearts more fully to the uplifting presence of the Divine.
To do the exercise, first get comfortable. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Next, gently put your attention on your inner visual screen, where daydreams and images come to you.
With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced like the word hue) as a song of love. You may notice a feeling of peace, warmth, and comfort. You may also recognize the presence of the Divine through greater spiritual insights into your daily life. There are many ways to experience the love of God.
When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you might also perceive the inner Light and Sound. The Light may appear as brightness or colours on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. However you experience the presence of God, it is bringing you a broader understanding of the life you lead.
