Looking to deepen your spiritual connection with your Higher Power? Here are 10 spiritual goals to set this year.
No religion has a monopoly on God so these spiritual goals are non-religious and non-denominational.
Spirituality is not something you believe in—it is who you are.
We are all spiritual beings having human experiences and we are here to remember this truth and help others do the same.
By setting spiritual goals, you are committing to shine the crystal that is you.
The more you buff away the darkness, the more you allow the light within you to come through.
By shining your light, you will inspire others to do the same.
If you are reading this right now, I want to honor you for your commitment and willingness to your spiritual path.
Here are 10 spiritual goals you can set this year to dive deeper into your spiritual practice.
1. Define The God Of Own Understanding
The first spiritual goal to set is to define the God of your own understanding.
In other words, what does God mean to you?
There are no rules when it comes to connecting to your Higher Power.
You are free to refer to it as the Universe, Source, or any name that resonates with you.
The most important thing here is that you can build a spiritual relationship with it.
Many people get hung up on using the proper name but this is just a distraction from building a spiritual connection with the divine.
It doesn’t matter what name you use as long as it feels good.
After all, being committed to joy is the first step to spiritual alignment.
2. Begin A Prayer Practice
The second spiritual goal to set is to begin a prayer practice.
Start an open dialogue with the God of your own understanding through prayer.
Prayers to the Universe are the best way to directly communicate with this higher power and shift your energy from fear to faith.
There are no rules when it comes to prayer. Even a simple prayer like, “Thank you,” is a prayer in and of itself.
Treat your relationship with the Universe like a two-way street and you will feel supported in your daily life.
3. Meditate Every Day
The third spiritual goal to set is to meditate every day.
If prayer is talking, then meditation is listening.
Every spiritual person has their own meditation practice because meditation is how you connect to your higher power.
When you sit in stillness, you allow divine wisdom and spiritual guidance to come through.
Many lightworkers receive hits of inspiration or what we call “spiritual downloads” in our meditation sessions.
Meditation may sound daunting but it’s a really simple practice once you get the hang of it.
Sit in stillness, witness any thoughts that come up, and guide your attention back to the breath.

4. Deepen Your Spiritual Beliefs
The fourth spiritual goal to set is to dive deeper into your spiritual beliefs.
When you embark on your spiritual path, you also commit to being a spiritual student for life.
This means being open to learning new perspectives and belief systems.
As I explain in my self-help book, Feeling Good, your ego will do its best to block you from reconnecting with your highest truth.
You will be tempted to judge, dismiss, or ignore new perspectives because they are too “out there” or too “woo-woo.”
But don’t let your resistance block you from learning new ways of thinking just because they are radically different than what you’re used to.
The Universe is always revealing itself to you, but you can only hear this guidance if you are open to receiving it.
So approach your spiritual practice with an open heart and a willingness to learn.
Trust that every spiritual teacher, guru, and book that you come across contains a piece of that puzzle you’re searching for.
5. Manifest Your Greatest Desires
The fifth spiritual goal to set is to manifest your greatest desires.
There is no time for you to play small anymore.
When you are aligned with God, there is nothing you cannot do.
You are doing yourself a great disservice by not realizing your God-given purpose in this world.
The Universe would not have given you the dream if you do not have the means to fulfill it.
Whether it is a new job, a romantic partner, or financial abundance, make it your mission to manifest what you’ve always wanted to experience in life.

6. Raise Your Vibration
The sixth spiritual goal to set is to raise your vibration.
You are spirit having a human experience and your spiritual purpose is to get closer to love.
According to the Law of Vibration, everything vibrates including your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
And love is one of the energies with the highest vibration according to the Emotional Guidance Scale.
This is why in many religions, the word love is synonymous with God.
When you vibrate at the frequency of love, you vibrate with Spirit (also known as God, the Universe, and Source).
By becoming one with love, you become one with God.
7. Connect With Your Higher Self
The seventh spiritual goal to set is to connect with your Higher Self.
Your higher self is your spirit, which is the essence of who you are.
Your physical form consists of three parts: body, mind, and spirit.
Your body and mind are the physical parts of you, but your spirit is the inner consciousness that animates your physical form.
Your higher self belongs to the spiritual realm, so it has direct access to the Universe (or God, Source, etc).
This is why connecting with your higher self allows you to receive inspiration, guidance, and ideas that you normally would not be able to access.
8. Claim Your Ability To Work Miracles
The eighth spiritual goal is to claim your ability to work miracles.
A Course In Miracles says miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong.
That “something” the Course refers to is our habit to lean into fear instead of love.
When we allow the voice of our ego (fear) to run our lives, we become disconnected from love and we forget our ability to co-create miracles with the Universe.
If you want to manifest miracles in your life, you have to become unapologetic about your ability to co-create miracles with God.
Although most of us have forgotten this truth, remember that we are all born to be miracle workers.
Every time we shift away from fear and return to love, we work a miracle.
As you vibrate closer to the high frequency of love, joy, peace, and compassion, you restore the natural order of the universe and miraculous events will begin to occur all around you.
You will experience synchronicities, manifestations, and miraculous situations, people, and outcomes.
But the prerequisite to all miracles is to believe you have the power to work miracles in the first place.

9. See Obstacles As Assignments
The ninth spiritual goal to set is to perceive obstacles as opportunities for growth.
One of the ways the Universe helps you grow is by placing an obstacle in your life.
This test may show up in the form of a challenging situation, person, or event.
Whatever form this obstacle comes in, know that it is divinely placed into your life to help you grow into your greatness or heal an unresolved part of you.
It may feel natural to perceive these tests as obstacles, but the moment you recognize them as opportunities for growth, your life will transform for the better.
Instead of believing that the Universe is out to get you, you can find peace knowing that the Universe is always conspiring for your highest good.

10. Surrender And Surrender Some More
The final spiritual goal to set is to surrender and surrender some more.
I am a firm believer that every moment in life (whether it’s good or bad) is simply an opportunity to surrender some more.
Surrender may sound scary, but it’s the key to inner peace.
Just like how a CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation has faith in his employees to do their parts in running the business.
We must have the same faith that we are being supported, guided, and led by the Universe.
Instead of trying to control every single detail in our lives, all we have to do is give it over to God.
When you no longer resist life, life no longer resists you.
In this state of non-resistance, you can get into active co-creation with the Universe and bring your visions to life.
