I thought the topic of personal revelation and how we receive it daily would be a perfect lead up to General Conference (put on by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) coming up this weekend. This is a spiritually focused podcast that is character building and for all who are looking for more inspiration from God.
Our guest today is Niki Olsen, a licensed clinical mental health counselor. She owns her own company called Mind Body Bridging (find out more about that on her website). Niki tells us about an outline she created to aid her in receiving the inspiration she needs in her personal life and her business.
"I urge you to stretch beyond your current spiritual ability to receive personal revelation. In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.” -President Russel M. Nelson Since President Nelson gave this talk, “Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives” in April 2018 General Conference, this statement has been at the forefront of my mind. The prophet of God was URGING me to do something! I felt like I needed to implement this ASAP! But how? I was already reading my scriptures, saying my prayers and attending church. So how was I going to stretch myself? I started looking at personal study guides I could use to help me understand the scriptures more deeply. As I tried various ways to study, understand and seek guidance, I took bits and pieces from various sources. I would try something, take what worked, tweak other concepts and implement. I didn’t really know where I was going or what I was really looking for, but what I started with is very different than what I landed on here. Each of these concepts have a special meaning for me and I know I have been guided and directed to use these concepts in my daily pursuit of building my spiritual ability to receive revelation. Since using this Outline in my daily life, I have been able to hear, interpret and follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost abundantly more than one year ago! I have been able to start, follow through with and pursue this business with staggering success in a very short amount of time. I know that if you use these concepts as well, you will be stretched, guided and fulfilled just as I have been.
