For most, many things don't come easily, and some things seem well nigh impossible. We are always attracting into our lives what we need for our spiritual growth. The game of life requires stealth, wisdom and staying power. Ultimately, it is our habits that define our destiny. To develop a soul with stamina requires focus, dedication, and never giving up!
What do we need to attract more into our lives of what we want, and what we choose?
To make it easier for you, here are ten steps for spiritual attraction:
1. Follow your heart
Live a more satisfying life by letting your heart's calling guide you. Your heart is tender, kind and guided by meaningful choices. It's much more likely to do the right thing, rather than making a self serving ego-dominant decision.
2. Tune into the soul
Fear doesn't reside in the soul. Its raison d'être is inspiration and clarity. The soul gives you a calling and it's your unique signature and essence. Follow it, and stay true to yourself. If you're struggling to hear its call, practise mindfulness. Surrender to the simplicity and flow of your soul.
3. See the big picture
Don't get stuck on the small things. Focus on what's really important and how you can get what you want out of life.
Create systems that work for you. Being organised helps you define your goals and set methods for achieving them. Set up a system that works for you. Manage your life effectively by organising your dreams into bite-size chunks and letting systems guide you toward achieving your goals.
4. Develop emotional self mastery
Emotions are the most powerful energy you have. Successful people develop methods to harness their emotions. Develop passion for who you are and what you are here to contribute. Connect emotionally with what you want to achieve. Make it become deeply resonant.
"Those who live passionately Teach us how to love. Those who love passionately Teach us how to live." - Yogananda
5. Align to your truth
Stay in touch with who you are. Align yourself to your thoughts, feelings and actions. Stay fully present to who you are and what you would like to achieve. See yourself as one with your goal, and the goal as already achieved. Create the emotion of achievement, and use it to inspire you forwards.
Be aware of environmental influences. We all impact on each other in obvious and subtle ways. Negative people can weigh you down and affect your results. Surround yourself with a support team who can help you deliver on your potential.
6. Follow your intuition
The more you use your intuition, the more you build trust in your intuitive insight, and the more you're able to follow your intuition. Successful people make quick decisions. How do they do this? By following their intuition.
7. Keep your head clear
Affirmations and visualisation support and inspire you on your journey. You can order your thoughts via a mind map. Get plenty of sleep to align your mind and clear away clutter. Still the mind through cleansing meditation and quiet time. Nurture a restful and clear mind through caring for your mind like you would a beautiful garden.
8. Believe in yourself
You are something of real value and you have something unique to offer the world. Have faith that you will be supported the more you authentically reveal yourself. The whole universe conspired to create you so there is a good reason you're here. If you're struggling to find it, keep looking, it may be hidden. Yet, don't get stuck on searching. Too many spiritual seekers think that they have some unique destiny to contribute to civilisation (which they haven't discovered yet), when they would be more productive in choosing a path and sticking to it and seeing the meaning in small acts of kindness. Whether you're the Prime Minister or a street sweeper, there is meaning in your being here.
The only failure comes in not attempting. There is no actual failure in giving your all whatever the results. Just be sure to learn from so-called failures, as usually they contain the greatest lessons.
Momentum comes through actions, so do something that moves you forwards. Even a small act is significant. Actions also contain the symbolic power to dissolve fears and build self confidence and belief. The only thing more daunting than taking action is taking no action. The bigger the actions, the greater the results.
10. Keep the faith
The final step is to let go of the outcome and have faith. Sometimes all it needs is a little faith. A prayer may be the only thing missing. Especially after you've defined your goals and taken deliberate actions accordingly. Reach out to others as we are part of a community of souls. Social support helps you get through barren times. Have faith that your prayers are answered (even if the answer is "not right now" or "not this way"). Have faith that your life does have a purpose. Patience means once in a while, you just need to "let go and let God".
The final unwritten step is to celebrate victory and accept disappointment when it comes. Either way, surrender to inevitability, keep the faith undimmed and learn to love what is...
