Practical Spirituality in Practice
It’s great to think that we are a “spiritual” being having a “human” experience. But how do we make this practical in our everyday life?
The first place to start is to realize that we have three distinct areas of our life:
Our personal is the most sacred part of our life. It is who we are inside and what we have come to do.
We didn’t come here to be a doctor, lawyer, shopkeeper or street sweeper. We came to share our personal experience and a unique spiritual message with our friends, family and acquaintances. This is our true purpose in life.
No one has a right to interfere with your personal life or the plan you chose to accomplish for yourself before coming to planet Earth. Not even your angels will interfere with that!
Actually, your spiritual helpers (or angels) will give you suggestions, ideas or inspiration but they will never interfere with your free will or tell you what to do. They have the ultimate respect for you as a soul to make your own decisions.
The key is to be loyal to yourself. If you make yourself happy first, then it means that everyone else has to be happy around you—otherwise, they can’t be around you!
Have you ever tried to make someone else happy? You can’t do it, can you? You can create a positive and happy environment, but everyone is responsible for their own personal feelings.
Your business is your service to others.
It is important that you learn to be factual when dealing with helping others to help themselves. If you give them the (1) what (2) when (3) where and (4) why of a project or opportunity to be involved with you, they will always be successful and the energy will be clear and uplifting.
What most people don’t realize is how to communicate clearly with themselves or others.
This is why in Howard Wimer's book Inner Guidance and the Four Spiritual Gifts, he outlines the four ways that we communicate with the spiritual gifts of prophecy (inner knowing), clairvoyance (inner vision), clairaudience (inner thoughts and ideas) and healing (inner feeling) in your personal, business and social life.
If you take a closer look at how confusion or volatility results from a lack of communication in your family or work environment, it is usually because the “facts” have been left out. It is no longer the energy of business.
It becomes “social.”
Your social life is your communication with others.
Anything goes in the social arena. This is when you will usually let your guard down and if you are not careful, you can be taken advantage of without realizing it.
You have to choose carefully who to share your “personal” experiences with so that they do not go around and share your intimate secrets with people who may not have your best interest at heart.
The key to protecting yourself in social situations is by being very discerning as to what other people’s basic motives are. This is why in some cases you may have a few good and close friends—and lots of acquaintances.
Another key to understanding yourself better is to know the difference between your true feelings and your emotions.
Your true feelings are the good, kind and generous part of you. Your emotions are feelings that you have been “taught to feel” in your first seven years of life. These are the inherited concepts of guilt, anger, frustration, etc.
Once you understand the difference between the two, you will have the ability to respond to life—rather than react to it.
