Here are some suggestions you can try to improve your spiritual and mental relationship with your creator. This works in any aspect of our lives; First you must accept your abilities or lack there of; and, if you want to improve you should make a mental note that always remain with you. It’s simple, keep God first in life. Even when you fail at times, you will have that connection to help pull you back. Always ask for protection from the ills of this world and have a mental conversation with God. Second, learn to communicate with others the way you would like to be communicated too. Not everything that is said to you or about you is attacking you as person, it may just be speaking to your actions. Sometimes it’s hard to hear criticism about our actions because we think we are being belittled. Try first to accept responsibility for your actions, this will release the stress of possibly lying when it’s not necessary and try to resolve the issue honestly. It’s like when your child lies to you and you say “just tell the truth, that’s all I want to know so that I can fix it before it gets worse”. It’s the same process you use with adults to resolve an issue. We also need to be prepared to deal with the consequences whether it’s positive or negative. If it’s negative you need to leave it alone and find a replacement in a positive manner.
When we are dealing with behaviors that are not conducive to our nature, we either suffer in silence or we lash out at someone or something. Children especially need those life lessons at an early age and adults need to continue practicing these life skills. Many of us grow up with negative life forces and continue to repeat them generation after generation. Others learn these important skills and become our coaches.
Third, Never be afraid to learn something different from what you are used to in life. If it means going back to school and thereby improving your education that may in turn improve your financial condition or having better choices in work force, make a plan to it. Attend conferences that can enlighten your sprit and inform your heart and soul is something worth doing. Taking walks in the parks, going to the museums, traveling, having quite time at home with family and friends are all good.
Forth, Family time is so important to the human sprit. Humans are creatures of habits. We like to feel that we belong to someone or something, it makes us feel needed and appreciated. No matter how busy we may get, its’ important to spend quality time with your family. Having breakfast, lunch or dinner is a good time for bonding through conversations and presence. You choose which is doable and just do it, there is no need to pre-plan these gatherings, just say you will do it, and get it done.
Relax and trust God, and always remember you are expected to do your part. Peace and Blessing
