Moseying along your spiritual path and carrying on with your daily life in 3D feels, much of the time, like the two mindsets are so different that they seem mutually exclusive.
Such is the dilemma of living in integrity in 3D (Gossip, Soapies, and Beauty magazines don’t make it any easier, I am not putting them down just making an observation).
I would like to offer an overview of three topics that will help make some sense of what appears to many that walking a spiritual path in our modern day lives can be confusing, exhausting, and contradictory.
Tools for a smoother path
1) Living in INTEGRITY
We hear the word integrity tossed around so much that it has become synonymous to many as honesty (that is even the first definition in Webster’s Dictionary). But dig a little deeper (past Mr. William Webster’s freemason ideology) and you will find a much more useful meaning of integrity. Simply defined (or rather practised) integrity means what you say, what you feel, and what you do are all in line and the same. What you think, what you say and what you do all fit together in perfect harmony with your intentions.
Be True in Word, Deed, and Thought - Mean what you say and say what you mean.
Honesty = Being truthful
Integrity = What you think/say, what you feel, and what you do are the same
Step one to Living in integrity are the simple things like being on time, keeping agreements, and holding a friend's confidence sacred; they may seem small because they are simple; however they are essential basics of living in Integrity.
2) Taking FULL and Absolute PERSONAL RESPONSIBLITY
Would you like to gain a little more insight to the connection between events that happen to or around you and why you react to them, be it negative or positive?
Do you blame people, traffic, or your dog when you are late?
Taking personal responsibility is the single most empowering thing you can do in the process of becoming a Sovereign Human Being.
It really does boil down to personal responsibility.
The moment you begin taking sincere and absolute responsibility for your actions and ensuing consequences you’ll begin a path of incredible power.
3) Monitoring your DIALOG in THE NOW
The old saying “sticks and stones can break my bones, but words cannot hurt me,” is a misnomer of note. WORDS HURT and the scars cut deeper than you think; sometimes they never heal. By employing kindness, compassion and truth you can say even the hardest things and people will thank you and respect you for it.
4) INTENTION Setting
An intention can be likened to a sincere prayer or a powerful wish that you make right now with full faith and confidence that it will come true. Again, with full faith and confidence that it WILL come true AND in total gratitude. You must begin to act as if your intention has already manifested.
When setting intentions, it is important to be as specific as possible, you are using the power of your subconscious mind and Universal Energy (an unlimited source of extreme power, and it has rules just like gravity or rugby).
The more specific you are the more likely you are to get exactly what you want (and don’t forget the old saying “be careful what you wish for you just might get it”).
Think of an Intention like a boomerang; once you throw it out it does its thing until it returns; best not confuse it by sending it new coordinates or needy energies… IT KNOWS WHAT TO DO AND IT WILL COME BACK.
For example, after setting an intention the probability of being in the right place and at the right time or a noticeable increase in beneficial synchronicities is a reality that is HAPPENING rather than WILL HAPPEN. Look for the signs and follow the synchronicities!
The process is ongoing, relentless, and amazingly effective!
Be concise and deliberate in the words you use to construct your intention. For example, do not use the word “try”. Trying has a connotation of non-commitment and the word is probably the least empowering verb in the English language. It is more a state of mind than an action. In fact, you would do yourself great good in eliminating it entirely from your thought and speech. It’s quite simple really simple just replace try with sincere effort.
I repeat: Replace the word “try” with “I will make sincere effort”.
Say the following two sentences out loud:
“I will try to work harder” change to “I will make a sincere effort to work harder”.
“He is trying to pay me back” change to “He is making a sincere effort to pay me back”.
Trying is for tryers and ‘just now-ers’.
Accomplished people make sincere efforts.
Ok you have set your intention and said it out loud for ALL to hear.
Here are four ways to re-enforce and strengthen your intention:
1. Placing your intention onto a piece of jewellery, stone, or good luck charm.
2. Writing your intention down and putting it in a visible place
3. Ritualistic restating of your intention with candles and prayer (not more than twice a month)
4. Visualisation & Inception from Sacred Plant Mind Space
5. Timing the statement of your intention with the New Moon (this is amazingly effective as you will begin to see some form of results by the following Full moon, 2 weeks)
The purpose of this exercise is to strengthen the connection to your Higher Self and inner voice. Think of it as a telephone line to your soul where information goes back and forth. Your Intentions are much more powerful when projected from a quiet, unfettered mind.
This connection has always been there, but it is now time to make sure the line is static free and crystal clear. You may have never consciously been aware of this exact connection, but this exercise will set up both sides for maximum effectiveness.
Your Higher Self is the source of your intuition and creativity, the control room for manifesting your intentions. When you have a clear two-way connection, integration and experience take on a new dimension.
