The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book. ~ Author Unknown
Through our life experiences, we are each gathering wisdom and tools for our spiritual tool belt to assist us, as well as others, on this journey.
The best kind of teacher teaches what they know. Simply speaking, you would not want a math teacher to teach English or an English teacher to teach math. There are a multitude of modalities, books and teachers when it comes to the many facets of spirituality. Typically, you will learn the most when you feel a connection to your teacher or if the material or book resonates with you. Practicing discernment and acknowledging what feels right to you is essential. If something does not resonate with you, please practice discernment and choose not to accept it for yourself. In other words, accept what resonates and discard the rest.
In this series of articles for Light Worker’s World, I will be offering tools for your spiritual tool belt. These are tools that have helped me the most on my own personal journey into consciousness.
Journey into Consciousness may revolve around my story, but within each one of us is a story that is being written each and every day. We are constantly writing the story of our lives based on choices – whether we make these choices ourselves or they are made for us. The directions those choices take us form the foundation for our learning, spiritual growth, and even our happiness. As we become more aware and mindful of our own personal power, we are better able to make conscious choices, and give ourselves permission to take control of our destiny instead of leaving it up to fate.
Clearing the energetic clutter, so to speak, within relationships is sometimes necessary. Take a moment to reflect and assess those relationships that you perceive to be healthy and balanced while also acknowledging those relationships that you may deem unhealthy or imbalanced. Making the conscious decision to cultivate the healthy relationships as well as establish boundaries within those relationships that are perceived to be unhealthy and imbalanced is essential for your personal well-being. As you grow spiritually and change, your relationships with others will change as well. There is no need to evaluate the particulars of this change as it is inevitable.
Clearly speaking or conveying the message via written means is only part of communicating clearly. The other part involves being clear about what you are expressing. Be sure to say what you really mean to say, thus avoiding any doubt for the listener or reader. Be clear when expressing what you mean. Sometimes, you have to spell-it-out rather than be vague. Having to “read between the lines” inhibits effective communication – both for the sender and the receiver.
Remember, communication involves both listening and speaking. Pay attention to the verbal and nonverbal feedback you are receiving during communication whether it is in-person, over the phone or via written word. Being an effective listener may require you to relay back to the sender what you have heard and interpreted in order to make sure that you have heard the message correctly.
