Spiritual Awareness: An Inside Job by Brenda Shinault, RscP
“There is a tendency in human nature to look to the external world for fulfillment that can only be found within.” – Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith
“I want to do work that I love and lets me make money easily,” wrote Mia, a participant in an online public Prosperity discussion. “I’d thought of starting a business writing life stories for elders, but I hadn’t taken myself seriously. I couldn’t quiet that voice in my head carping: ‘You can’t do that Mia! You’ll never make a living!’”
Similarly, many people seek fulfillment through worldly achievements while inwardly harboring beliefs that their most cherished goals are unattainable. Once a goal is attained, feelings of satisfaction may be short-lived or require more striving to maintain past elation. Fortunately, taking time daily to sit in sacred silence, may uncover a source of deeper fulfillment and sustenance for external goals. Tuning-in to the guidance of Spirit will expand self-awareness and prevent limiting thoughts from embedding in your consciousness. You can develop “spiritual awareness” through consistent meditation, prayer, and affirmations that instill positive thoughts to counteract limiting perceptions.
Are negative self-talk and habitual beliefs blocking your dreams? Consider starting a daily meditation and prayer practice to access the energy, wisdom and peace of the Infinite Mind.
“The creativity of Spirit pours out of me as life affirming words and ideas,” declares Mia today. Let the silence reveal God’s bounty to you.
God, in me, is my Source and my fulfillment.
