To build spiritual self-confidence there needs to be a true connection to God, the Universe, and the One and Only. Detachment from the Divine leads to a loss of purpose and thus a loss of power. How can anyone be powerful if they don’t know why they came to this plane? It’s not possible. Most people go about their daily lives thinking they have it all, but barely getting things done. That’s not so with people who have Divine power. They are people with purpose who are diligently working to make life better for everyone, and they are filled with great enthusiasm and self-confidence.
Take for instance Dr. Salk and the polio vaccine. Dr. Salk was a very spiritual man who on a regular basis went to silent retreats. In fact he was stumped as to how to create the polio vaccine, and it was frustrating to him. So he decided to take a break and listen to the still small voice within (God’s Voice) by go to a silent retreat. And so he did and within the first few days of the retreat the answer came to him out of the blue, from the still small voice of God. And then he went back to the lab and created the polio vaccine and the rest is history.
Einstein was another great mind of our time who said that most of his amazing breakthroughs in mathematics and physics came to him in silence from the still small voice within. In fact Einstein went on to say that the problem with science today is that scientist don’t take the time to be in silence and listen to the still small voice. Einstein also said it was not how much work he put into a problem, it was about being humble and reflecting in silence that gave him great insights into the Universe. From the nothingness of silence to powerful changes in science, the stillness of peace changed life on this planet forever. What could be easier than reflecting on silence. But how many of us take the time to be in silence? In this day and age there’s so much noise that it’s very hard to find silence, but it can be done.
Here are three simple practices to create spiritual self-confidence.
First of all allow at least 45 minutes every morning and in the evening to listen to the still small voice of God within in silence— and that means meditation. Most people believe they have 45 minutes to meditate… and that means we must make time to meditate, making it a priority in their life. Meditate on your breathing, in and out, and if a thought comes just say to yourself, “I will get back to that later”, and go back to your breathing. This takes practice, but over time the practice of meditation become deeper and deeper.
Secondly take a multi day silent retreat. There are many silent retreats given around the world. Some of these retreats are given absolutely free of charge, like the Free 10 Day Vipassana Meditation Retreats. Vipassana Meditation Retreats have nothing to do with religion, but they have everything to do with finding the True Self deep down inside. Even the food and lodging is free… showing up is all a person has to do. People walk away from these retreats totally different people, with totally different feelings inside. People who take these retreats become calm, they are able to hear the still small voice within, and they are able understand themselves and their emotions… and they become very self-confident.
Thirdly understand that you are not alone. Talk to God, the Universe, and the One and Only, on a regular basis and answers will come. And talking to God is not strange or weird it’s normal. God, the Universe, and the One and Only is the small voice we hear in our head. Most people don’t listen to that voice, let alone have a conversation with that voice. But when we start having a conversation with God, we understand we are not alone. And that means no matter where we go, and what we do, and what we go through, God, the Universe, and the One and Only is always there to help us, guiding us… and that creates self-confidence.
Many Blessings to Everyone
