Golden rules for a spiritual everyday life
Golden rules for a spiritual everyday life
Begin you day with a consecration, where you offer all the results of all your actions to the Divine. Thank for the fact that you’re being given a new day, full of possibilities. Thank for it!
You get dressed anyhow, so do it as a ritual, there you adorn a god/goddess, having the corresponding transfiguration.
Avoid dull, dark, greyish colours in your clothing. Avoid synthetic materials.
Stop acting mechanically. Be aware of everything you do/feel/think/intend!
Train your self-discipline! Make a list (even mentally) with things you know for sure you can do today. Say to yourself: “Today I have to do x, y, z and afterwards I have all the time in the world!”
In your way to your job/school, do simple breathing techniques, or visualize the subtle streams of colour, or program your subconscious mind . Do these in all your “dead-times”.
Choose carefully the music you listen to. Use only music that is beneficial.
Look at people around you, regardless whether you know them or not, in a very transfiguring way. See beyond their personality, their status; see in them a sparkle of God.
“IT IS NOT IMPORTANT WHAT HAPPENS TO US, IMPORTANT IS HOW WE REACT TO WHAT HAPPENS TO US!” Remind yourself of this liberating fact every time you are in situations less pleasant.
Take short breaks in which you remember your SELF!
When you eat, eat slowly; chew thoroughly, until the taste of the bit you’re chewing is gone. Eat consciously. Do not do something else meanwhile. Eat in the Ayurvedic order: sweet, salty, sour, hot, bitter and astringent.
When you cook, charge your food with positive energy, do not do it in a hurry, do not cook when you are in a bad mood. Do not use microwave oven and fast food, or ready-made food.
When you take a shower/bath, think that the water washes off all the subtle impurities. Be conscious of what you do. Finish it with cold water.
Prioritize things so that you have time for yourself, for your soul every day. Do a short interioriz ation daily.
Do small favours to those around you. Do it as if you serve God.
Say at least a compliment to your dear ones every day!
“TREAT THE OTHERS THE WAY YOU LIKE TO BE TREATED YOURSELF!” This a the foundation of common sense. Live according to it, and you will create for yourself a happy, harmonious life!
See and mentalise what is good in people around you.
Stop comparing yourself to others! Stop criticizing them in your mind!
Show people around you that you trust them, that you do not judge them, that you do not blame them.
Manifest your gratitude often, say: ”Thank you!”
When you do a good deed, do not expect something in return, not even a: “Thanks!”
Connect yourself to the Cosmic Will Power. Avoid involving yourself egoistically.
Ask for subtle help in everything you do (Prayer to your guardian angel…)
Give help every time you have the opportunity, every time you notice that help is needed.
Learn to say “NO”, to all that is negative, destructive, detrimental.
In the mental “dead times” focus your mind only on one (beneficial) thing.
Take care that you have the proper carriage of the body and that you choose the proper words when you speak and think.
Do not make compromises.
Every time you have negative feelings/emotions, do your best to identify the cause. You will notice that most of the times is because a form of fear. Confront your fear, understand that it is not grounded. Do your best to stop yourself before letting the negative feelings surface.
Make a list with the faults you want to get rid of, and begin with the one is most disturbing. Put the opposite quality in its place. Do not struggle the vice. Have patience with yourself.
Make a list with all your qualities and carry it around with you. Every time you feel your self-confidence is shaky, read the list.
Stop from whatever you’re doing from time to time, close your eyes and thing of the most beautiful, pure and elevated things that exist.
Teach yourself to SEE. Pay attention to details, gaze consciously.
Do your best to LOVE more today than you did yesterday. Strive to awaken in you the endless, true, divine LOVE.
In the end of the day, remember everything you have done/felt/thought, and “repair” the mistakes by visualising the same situation, though now you do it right. Learn from what you have done.
In the end of the day say with sincere gratitude: ”Thank you!” for everything that you experienced, and see this as a tremendous gift that comes from God!
