10 Steps to Greater Consciousness

Written by Rena M. Reese

6. Create positive intentions- Fill your life with acts of integrity, with things of beauty, harmonic acts of connection and with both love and respect for all of creation. After all, an enlightened being does not focus on anything in opposition to these things.

7. Understand that every choice matters- Every single day you will make thousands of choices. Choosing to take the high road, to laugh, to be honest and to forgive, provides opportunities for spiritual growth. Enlightened choices lead to enlightened living. Conversely, choices rooted in fear, anger and judgment will lead to disconnection, disillusionment and hopelessness.

8. Gratitude- Highly conscious people have a keen awareness that gifts come in unlikely packages. Adversity can positively re-route your life and what originates as an irritation can become an enlightening lesson.

9. Live in the present moment- Spiritually advanced people relinquish the pain of yesterday and invest no time in worrying about tomorrow because neither one exists right now. Enjoying the present moment affords you the freedom to appreciate all that is right about the here and now.

10. Spirit trumps Science- Science helps us to make sense of our world as we use time, reason and math to measure and prove theories. But science is limited by the linear thinking that defines it. Our spiritual world is unlimited and therefore not measurable. Love, gratitude, and hope exemplify  spiritual  terms that cannot be measured. After all, how would science measure a parent's love for a child? Invite the boundless and infinite energy of pure consciousness into your world to create an absolutely boundless life.

Some may chose not to pursue the path to greater consciousness because they believe that it takes too much sacrifice to achieve. While there is some sacrifice involved as you become more conscious, all that you are truly sacrificing is negativity. Intentionally dismantling  the negative  forces in your life provides quantum leaps in spiritual growth. It will fuel you to seek and create with excellence, act responsibly and hold  yourself  accountable  for  the  level  of  consciousness you achieve in this lifetime.
