we all need guidance in life. at times we all make mistakes or wrong judgement in life. its good to have real friends who can warn you when you are going wrong in life.
there are many talented people who don’t make it big in life just because they didn’t got the right guidance at the right time. i wish they had the right support system who could have directed them on the right path so that they could make best use of their creative talent.
to be successful one needs talent, luck, guidance and patience. one ingredient here and there and your life can go for a toss.
5 ways to get real guidance in life:
1. your inner voice
always listen to that subtle voice which comes from your inner source. it always guides you to the right path. this voice is subtle and at times is ignored. but this is one of the most reliable and handy source for guidance at all times. don’t suppress this voice and instead learn to distinguish it from the thoughts which comes from mind.
2. your mother
mother always want the best of her child. she has more experience of life than us. so pay attention to what she says. she may not be right all the time but every time she wants your best in life. don’t ignore her advise without listening carefully. always remember that mother is your first guru in life. she has taught you many valuable things in life. she knows more about you than your friends. because there is always a underground love chord which connects you with your mother, no matter how far you are staying from each other. always value your mother presence, suggestion and role in your life.
if you can get the right guru or mentor in life then there is nothing like it. it needs lot of good karma to meet the authentic master in life. so when you get to meet the right mentor then pay attention to their advises. however if you don’t have right mentor at this stage then don’t lose heart. do good karmas and one day you will be rewarded with right guidance unexpectedly.
another thing you can do in absence of physical guru is to listen to your inner voice. because the purpose of outer guru is to make you familiar with your inner guru, that is the voice of your soul. so be integrated from within and always follow your gut feeling.
4. your spiritual sadhana
whenever you are confused or you are not able to make decision then don’t make any decision. wait till your mind settle down. don’t make a decision when mind is over active. instead practice your sadhana. it could be mantra chanting, meditation or yoga session. first calm down the mind. invite silence and stillness inside you. when you are totally still from within then you will automatically know what you have to do and you will get the clarity to respond to the situation. the mind is the culprit which creates the confusion and no-mind is the solution to all the problems which mind creates in your life.
if nothing works then pray to god for guidance. any prayer done sincerely and with totality is always answered. the whole existence responds to your prayer. if you are positive then you will attract positive things in your life and so is true for negativity also. so always think positive. keep your heart full of positive emotions and don’t generate negativity in your life. surround yourself with positivity and positive people. keep your intentions clean and do good karmas.
one thing which will always help you is good karmas, good thoughts and having good energy around you. read book books and spend time with good and evolved people to stay positive and guided.
