Your life, Your rules.
Be the calmest person in the room. Know more than they think. Think more than you say, and notice everything. People fear the quiet one.
Praying and meditation
When we have desires or feel lost, we often turn to prayer as a means of seeking fulfillment or guidance from God. Praying can provide comfort, especially when we prefer not to share our problems with others. It can make us feel heard and give us a sense of connection to a higher power. While prayer can be beneficial, it’s important not to become dependent on expecting the higher power to solve all our problems. Recognizing and accepting our own power to overcome challenges without relying solely on external sources can be incredibly liberating, allowing us to take ownership of ourselves and embrace our abilities. Some people may find this daunting as it requires living without co-dependency. Spiritual practices serve as guidance, but if we only pray without taking tangible steps in real life, we may find ourselves waiting indefinitely with no results, falling into the trap of procrastination.
If you genuinely want to progress, don’t wait for anyone or anything to heal or change you. No one possesses that power over you, whether you choose to believe it or not. Understand that God created each of us in His image, granting us the capacity to create our own worlds, just as He created His. The best approach is to set a clear and strong intention before seeking guidance from any higher power. By providing a template through your intention, you allow your guides or God to work within that framework. If you are unsure of what you want or what would truly serve you, ask your higher self to reveal it to you before seeking guidance from any higher power for the “how.” It’s important to keep in mind that sometimes the solution presented may not align with your desires but rather with what serves your highest good.
Meditation is another spiritual practice that helps us become present in our bodies and the current moment. By quieting the mind and focusing on our breath and surroundings, we can deeply tune in. Meditation is beneficial when you simply want to be and let go of the burdens of the day. It requires quieting the mind and serves as an outlet to release whatever is troubling you. To begin this practice, find a comfortable position with your eyes closed and tune into your breath, the sensations in your body, and any other feelings you experience. You can choose to sit in silence or play soft, calming music in the background, allowing yourself to embrace a state of stillness and experience a sense of nothingness. This can be challenging at first, as we are conditioned to constant rushing. If your mind wanders, refrain from judgment and practice noticing what is present and allowing thoughts to flow out of your mind. With practice, you can gradually empty your mind of unnecessary chatter. This is an excellent starting point for beginners in meditation.
Once you have mastered quieting the mind and turning inward, the focus of meditation shifts. Through meditation, you can enter altered states of consciousness that are otherwise difficult to reach. This is why practicing quieting the mind is important. When you truly disconnect from the external world, you gain access to higher wisdom from other dimensions, including your Higher Self. As you continue this practice, you learn to bring the wisdom and experiences gained in meditation into your everyday life. In practical terms, when you actively seek answers or solutions, you no longer need to wonder or feel lost due to uncertainty. Instead, you possess an unexplainable knowing of what will best serve you, drawing upon the wisdom downloaded during your meditations. It resides within you, and all you have to do is actively reach out and intend for the right path to be shown.
In summary, both praying and meditation are incredibly helpful in various ways. Praying involves turning to a higher power, while meditation involves turning inward to find inner peace and higher wisdom.
