Step 2

Seek your higher power

To succeed you must find your own higher power, whether through religion or some form of personal spirituality.

“We don’t have to believe in a specific God or higher power, but we must realise that the higher power isn’t us.”

 

For those who believe in a God, the concept of a higher power is an obvious one. But if you’re not a religious person, the idea of seeking a higher power might be difficult. We need to be clear here. We’re not saying you should or shouldn’t believe in a religious God. What we’re advocating is a belief in a higher power – whatever you believe that may be.

You can make it anything you want it to be. For some the higher power is nature. Others choose science. It can be the sun, the moon, the oceans or the mountains – anything that is more powerful than you. Something that works beyond your control.

What this higher power can do for you is immense. A higher power offers you a focus for your thoughts, meditations or prayers – someone or something to make a connection with. A higher power can help you through your darkest times, and offer something to be thankful for when things are going well.

Without a higher power we might feel alone and powerless. Without a higher power we can feel that life revolves around us and that we have to control everything. None of this is true, and only when we seek the help of a higher power can we be conscious of our place in this world. It’s all part of our spiritual awakening.

SPEND THE NEXT 3 DAYS, MAKE SOME NOTES, DO SOME RESEARCH, HAVE A THINK AND A LOOK INTO WHAT YOU COULD MAKE YOUR HIGHER POWER.

 

Good luck.
