How to lead a more spiritual life, the Native American way.
Native American’s are considered to be highly spiritual people who have avoided getting caught up in the rat-race of the modern world.
They hold some pretty amazing beliefs and have a great understanding of how the world works, and how to be happy within it.
Here are 20 Native American tips to give you a better quality of life.
1. Get up early to pray
It doesn’t have to be a prayer to a specific God, you can just tell the universe how thankful you are for all the good things you see in the world.
2. Be kind to those who have not yet found the right path
It’s easy to be judgmental but the Native American’s are not quick to judge, meaning they allow more kindness to people who have not yet found their way in the world.
3. Find yourself in your manner
Manners maketh the men – treat those around you with the respect you would like in return.
4. A guest in your home should be made to feel welcome
Always open your door to friends and strangers alike, and greet them with open arms

Never expect anything, always be prepared to work hard for what you have.
