Hiring the Heavens by Jean Slatter. This is a small, but powerful book that is full of inspiration and teaches you how to simplify your life, by hiring heavenly helpers to support you and your dreams.
As Jean Slatter states, “Spiritual helpers stand ready and willing to be hired in the co-creative expression of our divinity.” You may have your own way of finding inspiration and connecting to the divine, but I find ‘hiring the heavens’ very effective for employing divine assistance to invite miracles into your life.
Do you ever find yourself wishing you could hire employees to do some of the work that you can’t humanly get to? So, now, you can ’employ’ divine assistance. Imagine there is a team of specialists that have talents and skills galore. They are also happy to help. Life will be less of a struggle too! Here are the 7 steps
1. Name Your Committee
Take out a piece of paper and write the title of your spiritual committee on top. For example, Perfect Job Committee.
2. Define your mission statement
Describe why you’re pulling this spiritual committee together. List our goals, and requirements. “My perfect Job Committee will assist me in finding the job that….”
3. List the Specialists You Wish to Hire
As Jean Slatter points out, “Start listing all the particular experts and attributes you’d like to include in your committee. Your heavenly help will be standing over your shoulder providing inspiration and arranging the circumstances in magical ways. You can even hire a prompter just to help you think of all the members you’ll need to hire for this committee.”
4. Make a Task List
Write the task list for your newly hired committee. This is a detailed list that you can amend at any time. It’s a great way to keep track of your progress.
5. Launch Your Committee
Launch with some sort of ceremony. Not required, but can make it more fun, like lighting a candle.
6. Hold Staff Meetings
Do this frequently. You may want to meet throughout the day or just when you feel the need. Meet at least once a day to stay clear on intention and keep a a close relationship with Spirit. Talk to your group just as you would with an ‘earthly staff.’
7. Celebrate Your Successes
Be sure to say thank you. Celebration gratitude is their only form of payback for their hard work and attention on you.
Just be open, aware, and listen for what your spiritual workforce is trying to tell you. You will find more happiness in your life each and every day.
This little book has helped me to connect to Spirit in a more practical way than prayer has, even though I like to pray. You can do both. Usually I have a vague sense of what my committees look like and how many on each committee.
Last week, one of my clients in college was in a panic about a difficult term paper he had to write. I finally told him about hiring the heavens and he laughed at me, but since he was desperate, he hired a committee that included a great writer, someone into psychology, a ‘brainy’ person, and an organized person. He was shocked that within an hour he started writing with ease after a week of writers block. Then the next day,he found an amazing tutor at his college, with a doctorate degree who really helped him understand how to write.
How do you stay connected to the divine? What’s your inspiration? What are your results?
