“Sadhana is a Sanskrit word whose root “sadh” means to reclaim that which is divine within us, our power to heal, serve, rejoice and uplift the spirit.” Maya Tiwari

“Do not try to fix what comes in your life. Fix yourself in such a way that whatever comes, you will be fine …” Sadhguru
40-Day Sadhana Practice A sadhana is simply a daily spiritual practice designed to allow oneself to turn inward and perceive life from a broader perspective.
“All spiritual practice is the art of shifting perspectives” Teal
You might be thinking; “I’m not religious at all – why would I want to do a spiritual practice?” Being spiritual is not about religion at all – although it might mean you have a personal relationship to God, the Divine, the Universe, Source, Higher Self, the Goddess, Shiva, Shakti… whatever word you like to use to describe something that is omniscient.
Like myself, many people find connecting with nature is a spiritual experience. It makes them feel more in tune with life, and with themselves.
A spiritual practice is simply a practice that connects You to you: that is – connecting your ego self, which is small, limited and separate from everything else, to your Higher Self, Source Self, which is infinite, unlimited and connected to All that Is. A sadhana could be:
A mantra meditation
A set yogic practice
Reading a spiritual text
A daily walk in nature
Conscious breathing exercise
Daily journal practice
Why do we practice a sadhana for forty days? A sadhana doesn’t have to be for forty days, it may be just every single day for an indeterminate length of time, or it may be a set time. Forty days is usually the minimum, it’s a number with significance in many spiritual texts, including the Bible (Lent is for forty days) One reason for this is that, when you do something every single day for forty days, it ingrains the new discipline. It becomes part of who you are and what you do and it’s difficult to stop at the end! It has the potential to retrain your brain, sharpen your mind focus and change your your overall wellbeing.
What are the benefits of practicing a sadhana for forty days?
Commitment – a sadhana may only be ten minutes a day, but just doing it every single day no matter what, says that you care about your spiritual evolution. You are putting yourself first and you are growing.
Discipline – the mind and ego are sly, trickster voices and will use all kinds of excuses to try to keep you from doing your sadhana. Doing it every single day builds discipline, as we learn not to listen to the mind and the ego and to just DO what feels good because we know we truly want it.
Evolution – you’re either changing and growing as a person, or you’re stagnating. Do you want life to get better, or not? Doing a daily sadhana is one small way to make sure that every single day is just a little bit better than the prior one, no matter what else is going on in your life.
Foundation – at just 10 minutes, a sadhana is like planting a tiny seed in the garden. Every day you practice you water it and it grows. As you get used to dedicating ten minutes a day to your evolution and growth, you’ll naturally discover you want to make more and more time for yourself. That tiny seed blossoms, grows and bears fruit and one day you turn around and discover your whole life has become a sadhana.
It feels GOOD :-)
