I really like the idea/structure that Ketzirah posted about on her blog Peeling a Pomegranate about The Four Elements of Sustainable Spiritual Practice.

I think that this year I am going to try to work my spiritual ideas on around the Wheel of the Year. So my structure will look something like:

Spring Imbolc {Feb. 2} to Beltane {May 1}- Air = Personal Connection with the Divine.

  • Daily Prayer
  • Weekly Meditation
  • Major Spiritual Book reading
  • Study in depth the Maiden Aspect

Summer Beltane {May 1} to Lughnassadh {Aug 1}- Fire = Resources

  • Growing a garden
  • Establishing a healthy relationship with food
  • Building my self confidence
  • Being active outside
  • Studying the Mother Aspect

Fall Lughnassadh {Aug 1} to Samhain {Oct 31}- Water = Creativity

  • Find a craft I love – embroidery?
  • Turn negativity in positivity
  • Work on divination
  • Studying the Father

Winter Samhain {Oct 31} to Imbolc – Earth = Finding my true self

  • Find some happiness – daily
  • Build better relationships with the people I love and learn to sever unhealthy relationships
  • Work on grounding/centering/meditation
  • Studying the Crone Aspect
