The quick answer to this is “get out of your own way.”
Unfortunately until you have developed some kind of awareness this will not mean much to you, so a good first answer might be “Develop your awareness to the point where you can get out of your own way.”
For most people that will involve dealing with the mundane parts of their life and relationships first to free their body up a bit. Abe Mazlow had a lot to say about this, but basically it is difficult to listen to the Self over the noise a needy body is making.
For most people who are stuck at one stage or another of this process, good therapy or good lifecoaching can help. Personally now I wouldn’t bother with any professionals who do not have a developed spiritual awareness, and believe me, several spiritual therapists and coaches have as their daily prayer this little tune.
Secondly, help others. If you don’t help others, why should you deserve help? Note, however, that this is secondly, not firstly. This is not a dig for you to click on the “donate” button on here from time to time, although that will certainly help others, and it is a painless process and a good use of your spare cash!
Thirdly, choose holy. Pray. Meditate. Read inspired works – plenty to go at on here, to start with. This will really test you as you will find every way possible to get in you Self’s way when you try this stage, but, hey, why else are you here?
