Some may ask: How do I know when the inner spirit is awakened? The human mind is complex, having many beliefs. Some beliefs are conscious and others are hidden in the unconscious. Some beliefs activate the inner spirit and others put it to sleep.
When the human mind dominates by overthinking and you give it power, it controls your life, creating many complexities through its familiar belief patterns. There are beliefs that trigger the ego control and those that activate the inner spirit. When the ego is running you, that area it's running has dormant and active beliefs that are not serving your inner spirit. The ego reacts through a fight, flight, protect mode.
If you allow the human ego to control your life and identify with it as you, you create separateness and experience struggles. The strong human ego control comes in the forms of resistance, judgment, force and hate, creating negative influences. Habits and beliefs that are not in alignment with your spirit being attract lessons in the form of challenges in the area necessary to evolve, to help you become smarter spiritually. As you start to awaken the inner spirit you expand spiritually and become more playful, loving with a peaceful expression. Choices we make are based on the most dominant belief system. Transform the belief system and transform your Life.
Judgment is a label of right and wrong, good and bad, based on inward beliefs. Any feelings you are experiencing as a participant you then identify with those feelings, thereby triggering behaviors that are self-focused, insecure, fear- driven and needy. Quiet the mind and calm the emotions. Put your attention on love, appreciation, gratitude and celebration, not on fixing, correcting the dramas in the world. This will move you out of judging the situation or person and avoid attracting negative influences. Focus and keep your attention on what you would like to create, rather than what is annoying you. In other words, go above the condition rather than underneath it.
Be the observer rather than a participant in unpleasant situations or chaos to diffuse the power over you. This will allow you to move into an inward calmness to respond rather than reacting to the thoughts, situation or chaos.
A Buddhist said if you don't accept the gift, it is not yours. So if someone behaves in a manner that you don't feel connected to, bless them and know it is perfect. You don't have to entertain it by teaching, giving your opinion, judging, etc. That moves you out of inner peace and love and then the ego control of fight, flight and protections kicks in.
A peaceful-joyful-loving approach to the inner spirit mind is simple. Its focus is on gratitude, innovation and exploring new tasks at hand. This educates the human mind and you become smarter in a more joyful manner.
When the heart is focused on appreciation and love, it triggers the inner spirit to become more active and there is a more loving flow with life and all decisions. The awakened inner spirit has a sense of freedom, aliveness, and higher sense of joy, peace and harmony. You feel vital and accepting with a sense of being in the moment and enjoying life.
You awaken your inner spirit when you change the beliefs that no longer serve. As these beliefs are transmuted, more of your inner spirit awakens and can express in a fuller manner. Eventually you experience a level of spiritual freedom, a heightened frequency level of inner peace, greater joy and pure love. You share life from a "we" focus and flow with life in a calm, harmonious, happier and more positive manner.
