In the Srimad Bhagavata and the Vishnu Purana it is told that the nine forms of Bhakti are Sravana (hearing of God's Lilas and stories), Kirtana (singing of His glories), Smarana (remembrance of His Name and presence), Padasevana (service of His feet), Archana (worship of God), Vandana (prostration to the Lord), Dasya (cultivating the Bhava of a servant with God), Sakhya (cultivation of the friend-Bhava) and Atmanivedana (complete surrender of the self). .

Praise the Lord! Guideposts is making All God's Creatures a yearly devotional and I get to serve as one of the members of their writing team. To God be the glory! In the first edition, I shared how the Lord used sleeping dolphins to teach me how to rest in Him. I shared how He used a pangolin to teach me about spiritual warfare, how His adorable otters affirmed He cares about the details of my life, and how He used a cheetah to remind me He sets our day-to-day pace with intention. I even shared how God uses my dogs to help me grow spiritually. If you love animals and want to be encouraged and inspired by the ways the Lord teaches us through His amazing creatures, please visit the Guideposts website to order your copy and share a copy with a friend today. I would also appreciate your prayers as I start working on the next batch of devotions for next year's edition of All God's Creatures. I'm grateful for you, Instagram Fam!

DEVOTION de·vo·tion /dəˈvōSH(ə)n/ noun love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for a person, activity, or cause. Allow your devotion to your journey and soul's song to elevate you and infuse you with strength, light, love, and energy. Show commitment to yourself. Become fully devoted to what you love and the force of pure love. I am a warrior of love. Hard to believe that this picture taken of me on the Nile in Egypt just three short years ago. So much has changed since then and I have so much clarity around my purpose. I knew in this photo what I wanted but was afraid to reach for it. I denied myself my desires. Judged myself and made myself small. I have devoted myself to my journey deeply the last three years. I have devoted fully to what is in my heart and the strength and support has risen up to meet me. I'm honoured to be doing the work I am and am committed to growing, sharing, and teaching. Be fully devoted to what you love. Have courage. What are you committed to? #yegtantra #dakini #sacredsexuality #conscious #kundaliniyoga #reikimaster #energy #purpose #tantra #soulssong #devotion #courage #egypt #thenile #sunsets
