Are you tired of trying to reach people who just don’t get it? Here are six ways to help you start up a spirituality conversation with just about anyone!
6 Ways To Talk To People Who Just Don't Get It
1. Try to find some common ground
Most people have a curiosity about UFO’s and have either seen one or knows of someone who has seen a UFO. Ask them about their beliefs in UFO’s.
There are dramatic earth changes going on right now, such as tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes, mass animal die offs, sinkholes, land cracks, solar flares, etc… Bring up one of these topics and segue it into other earth change topics. From here, you can mention how our planet follows cycles of time, how history always seems to repeat itself and how to learn from these cycles of time.
We’re starting to see an influx of television programming and movie productions that revolve around aliens. Create a conversation about this and test the waters to see where people stand on whether they believe aliens are malevolent (bad) or benevolent (good).
We’ve all asked these kinds of questions, such as, “If you were an animal, what kind of animal would you be and why?” Try asking a similar question, but from a spiritual perspective: “If you could have any ability, what would it be and why?” Some people might want to fly or to be invisible while other people might want the ability to read minds. From here, you can talk about ways to work on specific abilities, such as telepathy, seeing auras and telekinesis.
Just about anyone will check out at least a few minutes of a video you send them. If the video link is in an email, then chances are, they’ll put this aside and will watch it at their convenience. Don’t force the issue by asking them if they’ve seen the video yet. If they’re still interested, they’ll talk to you about it.
Let’s imagine you’re standing in line at the grocery store. To start a conversation, you might try saying, I never really knew about genetically modified foods until I read about it on in5d.com (or your favorite website).” This plants the seed of suggestion to those who are curious about GMO’s or whatever topic you’re trying to garner curiosity about. You could even talk about how taxes are so high and segue that into how all political parties are the same. For some, this will begin their awakening process.
Make a custom t shirt about what you’d like to talk about. People will ask you about it.
6. Ask other like-minded people
Attend workshops, go to conferences, participate in a drum circle and ask people how they start a conversation with someone whojust doesn’t get it.
Remember: If they’re disinterested, then let it go.
All we need to do is to light their candle of curiosity. The rest is up to them.
