For me, the Internet is spiritual. It allows me to connect with thousands of people all over the world, with completely different backgrounds and life experiences, in the blink of an eye.

In high school, the Internet allowed me to find and compete for several scholarships, which paid for my education. In college, it allowed me to find and connect with my father, whom I had never known. In my early twenties, it enabled me to fulfill my dream of owning a business by running one from a home office and securing clients online. A few years ago is allowed me to realize my dream of becoming a professional speaker by enabling conference planners to find me online through video, articles and social media.

Any one of the above scenarios is nothing short of a miracle- magic.  However, it would be a huge mistake to assume that the Internet is the magic.  The Internet and social media are tools.  The magic lies in our connection to our source.

No, I am not about to open up a can of worms and discuss religion.  Rather, I’d like to focus on “spiritual maintenance” and provide you with a few of the things that I do to keep my spirit fresh, intact and tuned in to the “magic channel” which enables me to leverage tools like social media to connect with other amazing people.  Please note that none of these activities involve being plugged in to technology.

What do you do to take care of your spirit?
