Many religions and spiritual practices teach we are to treat others the way we wish to be treated. It is the very foundation for Law of Attraction.
Most of us have some form of routine wherein we pray, meditate and in general at least try to connect with the spirits and even the Great Spirit, God, Universal Consciousness, angels, and our own personal spirits.
There are principles of self-healing which advise us to keep gratitude journals, look for things to be grateful for everyday, even the smallest things, a cup of hot coffee, green lights all the way to work, a beautiful flower in an unexpected place or the smile of child.
Where am I going with all this? We work, belief, self-heal, meditate, pray, and a plethora of other things trying to improve the world, our life, the lives of others; some days we may see some progress, but many days we don’t. When we sit and give them our laundry lists of things we want to be different, then all we have is our list. That is what we focus on and it’s what we’re telling the spirits to focus on. It’s the energy we’re using to connect with the spirits, even the Divine.
How would our lives change, how would our relationships with others and the world in general change, how would our relationship with the Divine change if we used different energy to connect and commune with the Divine? What would happen if we shifted our focus to all the things we have been given, all the positives, all the beauty? What if when we connect with the Divine we appreciate our coffee, rainbows, sunflowers, warm sweater, funny child; what if this is all we focus on when communing with the spirits? I wonder what we’ll get back?
