Living in the moment can be a process that is intimidating with all the distractions going on in one’s life. It is a good idea to ask for support from those around you, as well as those that are available to you as well as those in spirit form.
Following is an excerpt from the chapter Living Moment by Moment in my book Spiritual Reality: Transforming the Ordinary into the Extraordinary.
Ask Spirit for Help
The first step in living moment by moment is to ask spirit for help. In general, people are very independent. It is often a habit; they are used to looking after themselves. It can also be a reluctance to expose themselves to the negative viewpoints of others. Then there is pride, which is often so well hidden it is not recognized.
Refusing help from spirit can be because you do not know as much as you would like to about spirit. What do you really know of the spirit within all? If you have a religion you believe in, it makes it easier to ask God for the help that you need; he is a set identity. There have usually been generations of belief to call upon.
If you are not connected with a conventional religion that guides you to who God or spirit is, it is left up to you to interpret. When first starting out in a process of connecting with spirit, you may feel uncertain. This can make it a little harder to call on help from spirit because you have not had spirit defined by centuries or years of praying in a religion. You are on your own, in a sense.
You are aiming for a direct connection to spirit, which you need to have faith in and trust is the correct spirit or universal God energy. One way to do this is to always ask for something coming from for the good of all. In this way, you know that the spirit you are connecting with is there to help and not hurt its creations. This protects you and all those around you whom you are seeking to help or influence. In this manner you can be assured that the spirit you are calling upon is for your well-being and the well-being of those around you.
This phrase works because there is a universal law that everything is an agreement. Hence those helpers of spirit that do not agree to your terms for the good of all cannot participate in your request.
