The Progressive Planner: Spiritual Goals


In 2013, my two spiritual goals were to volunteer and meditate.  While I now actively volunteer at least once a week, my meditation goal kind of went out the window with my whole autoimmune eye thing.  Jumping right into it, my first goal is obviously to begin meditating again.  I'd like to start be meditating twice a week for ten minutes each session, then up it each month. Here's a chart of my meditation goals:


My second spiritual goal is to remain active in the KC pagan community.  According to my post at the beginning of this year, I wanted to attend six of the eight public Liithi Lushede Coven rituals and four Coffee Covens.  As of today, I've attended Imbolc, Ostara and Beltane for Liithi Lushede rituals.  That's three out of six.  I've also attended every Coffee Coven since January according to my Meetup.com history.  That absolutely covers that.  So I technically only need to attend three more Liithi Lushede rituals to call it even.  I would push myself to attend all of the rituals for the rest of the year.  However, I don't think that's realistic given my line of work, which may conflict with a ritual or two, or the weather, which tends to be pretty bad during the winter.

My final goal is to dedicate myself to the study of Elder Futhark runes again.  While I have been intensively studying them this year, I'd like to commit to a schedule that helps me further delve into everything about them.  I don't feel I'm as learned in runes as I should be.  By the end of the year, I'd like to consider myself an advanced intermediate runester.  Here are my monthly goals to learning the runes:


As complicated as this chart sounds, notice that I'll be studying one rune per week and one small section of runic practice per week.  Ideally, I'll only need a few hours per week to do this.  As I study, I'll be building an exam that I will take at the end of the month.  I will also make copies of that exam to compile into a final exam at the end of the year.

So let's put together the FINAL GOAL CHART:


And the last section of my monthly goal template!

SPIRITUAL - 0% Complete
Meditate [X] a week. – 0/X Times – 0% complete.

And there you have it!  The compilation of my 2014 goals.
