If you’re like me your spiritual practice will bring you huge comfort. You know when you have those worrying or stressful times you can turn to practice or your guides for reassurance. Your meditation will relax and calm your mind. Your spiritual energy practice will revive and invigorate you. Communicating with your guides will set your mind at rest.
But have you ever felt frustrated that no matter how much you meditate, and put out positive thoughts you still seem to get stuck with the same problems, the same money worries, and the same people annoying you by doing the same irritating things?
I used to feel like that too. I couldn’t understand why. I would be completely clear about my outcome, yet no amount of focussing on the goal seemed to bring it any closer. It was so frustrating and I couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong. Have you ever had felt that too?
Now being an engineer my mind is constantly set to explore and experiment to find solutions. So I set out on a course of experimentation and research to figure out how I could make my spiritual practice create tangible results in the real world.
Here’s what I discovered and how you can use YOUR powerful connection to spirit to really rock your physical world.
Before we get started on what I discovered, I want to mention that none of this relies on what I call “magical thinking”. You know, where you meditate on a purple stone, think happy thoughts and the world just changes by magic.
Granted magic can happen, and here’s how to make more of it happen in your life with your spiritual practice so you can create real and tangible results in your income, your relationships, your health and your business.
Ready to get started…
1. Receive inspiration or your big dream as to what’s possible in the world
Your spiritual practice can enable you to become free of the shackles and constraints about what is and isn’t possible.
Face it. Most people have a postage stamp size view of what their life could be like. And of course when you get really connected to spirit, little by little as the constraints fall away, possibilities appear as your vision grows and deepens and strengthens. Your spiritual vision shows you a truly magnificent vista of what your world could be like. The mark of success is having a really big dream, and being willing to go for it.
2. Let your Guides give you courage
Which brings us to the next thing I discovered, having a big dream is wonderful, but not if you can’t find the courage to start to build it, create it and LIVE it. It’s so sad to see so many beautiful spiritual souls with a magnificent dream of how they could make a difference in the world, if they only had the courage to start.
Your guides can give you that courage. Creating something brings a risk so make sure you use your inspired guidance and spiritual connection to give you the courage you need. Especially when you’re faced with criticism, resistance (including your own) and the limited thinking that many people have been brainwashed with.
3. Ask your Guides HOW to achieve your goals
Your big dream is your WHY. This is why you do what you do. Once you’ve got the dream and the courage, the next step is to take some action. But where to start!
Tune into your guides and ask them HOW you can achieve your goals. HOW can you make your dream happen? Start with baby steps and reward yourself. Work with your guides, don’t ask them what you should do, instead decide on the outcome and ask your guides HOW you can achieve that. With a strong enough connection you can get step by step instructions of all the actions to take to achieve your goals.
4. Guide the right people into your life
When I was first starting out in my business almost 8 years ago, one of the most significant bits of advice I ever got was that if you have a really big dream. You’ll never do it alone. You will need help from others. Maybe it’s from a mentor, friends, colleagues, or a team.
I still find it astonishing that when I have a need the perfect person with the perfect skills, wisdom, knowledge shows up and is willing to help. This is how my team showed up, all at the perfect time. In fact this happened just last week when my new coach Christian Mickelson showed up with the perfect programme to help me get my business to the next level. It was so weird that the exact goals I’d set for the year were EXACTLY what his programme could help me with. Coincidence? No I don’t think so.
If you’ve ever had a goal or a problem and not known who to turn to for help ask your Spirit Guides to direct into your life the perfect people who can help you. They will show up. All you need to do is to take action when they do.
5. Inspire you to take action
Have noticed yet that straight after you finish mediating, or your spiritual practice you suddenly get a huge rush of inspiration and energy to action? Perhaps suddenly want to call someone, or to send an e-mail, sign up for an event or programme. Whatever it is you can feel unstoppable.
You may not have realised it but that rush of energy and inspiration is Spirit guiding you.
Why buttering parsnips?
If you’re wondering why I mention parsnips in the title of this article… have you heard the phrase “Fine words butter no parsnips”? Well I’m not sure why it’s parsnips and buttering, but I can relate to the sentiment. Can you?
Finally, in a nutshell, your spiritual centre is always there, it helps you find your dream and guides you to LIVE it. But beware the pitfall of magical thinking. There is no tooth fairy that’s going to do the work for you. The reason you have a physical body is so you can take action to create change in the physical world.
Just make it inspired action that moves you towards your dream, and bit-by-bit YOU CAN create it.
So what THREE spiritually inspired action steps are you going to take today to move you towards your dream?
Dream it. Bravely do it. Enjoy it.
