Connection occurs when your Bodily Ego unites, even if only briefly, with your own Spiritual Ego, or some other monadic location within the Fabric of Consciousness. Connection is the ostensible goal of Authentic Spirituality, and the explicit purpose of the Lightning Path.

List of Connection Practices
This is an intercultural list of connection practices. Research is included where available.
Connection is important because, as William James says, they are the foundation from which religion emerges. As Bender notes, practioners reassert and reinforce this basic "narrative," when they assert that is religious experience which drives them forward towards spiritual practice. 
Connection is often (always?) initiated via and Intent to Connect of some sort.
Connection experiences are "pleasing in and of themselves, but they also have been said to eventuate in long term positive changes, such as increased creativity and insight; improved intellectual, emotional, perceptual, and physical functioning; a holistic perception of the world and the self; a sense of objective understanding and wisdom; a naturally arising moral and ethical sense; and an experience of inner peace and freedom" 
Connection leads to expansion of Consciousness into the body, i.e., increased Consciousness Quotient.
Connections may be characterized along five Connection Axes.
Think of connection in internet terms. Like your computer/device connects to a website 'server, so your little self connects to your Self, Highest Self, or some other monadic location in [The Fabric of Consciousness]]. Make sure you have the right "web" address before you connect.
Connection is the ostensible and overt goal of Authentic Spirituality.
The ability to connect with Consciousness is a natural ability of the Physical Unt. It is facilitated via proper Development of the Physical Unit, or when the physical unit is damaged, via the use of Connection Supplements designed to overcome the psychological and emotional damage of Toxic Socialization. In this regard, Huxly notes that the ability to connect (what he calls mystical union) is "as all the evidence seems to show, a state which man [sic], as man [sic], has always had it in his power to realize..." (PP). Further Connection (what Huxley refers to as "direct awareness of the 'eternally complete consciousness,') is a "possibility occasionally actualized by some human beings at almost any stage of their own personal development, from childhood to old age, and at any period of the race’s history."
Proper development of the physical unit includes a socialization process satisfies all Seven Essential Needs, and that teaches, encourages, and facilitates Right Action, Right Thought, and Right Environment.
Connection may be visually represented with the Water Glass Metaphor.
