We all suffer from spiritual narcolepsy. 

As soon as we start feeling really connected, as soon as we think we have it all figured out, life happens (and its usually something pretty minor that sets us off). Just like that, and in a matter of seconds, we find ourselves on an island of crazy.  Our divine connection, our serenity…all gone. 

So how do we get back?

Well, there are a lot of tools we use to get “re-connected” and back to our “A” game?  We can meditate. Help others.  Go for a run.  Write in our journal.  Pray. We all have our favorite tools.

While the tools listed above are all great, one of the best solutions for rekindling our divine connection is actually right in front of us.  It’s actually within us.

It’s called listening.

When we really listen, we give our spirit and soul a chance to catch up with our brain.  We give time for divine inspiration and truth to enter our minds and heart. Our shallow, not well-thought out, and often quick ego centric replies, become replaced with more intelligent spirit filled words.  We find wisdom.

When we truly listen, we actually find ourselves not wanting to talk as much.  We lose that automatic response and need to impose our opinions and viewpoints on everyone.  What is between God and us is suddenly enough.  We feel serenity. We feel connected again.
