The spirit of wisdom and revelation comes as a sacred feeling or impression. If you want to experience this, but haven’t there are some things that you can do. No one can force God to communicate with them, but when prepared, the flow of ideas from heaven is natural. If you once had the spirit of wisdom and revelation but now no longer enjoy it, there may be some reason that God has hidden his face. He is the greatest teacher and uses both sun and shadow in his individual tutorials.
Preparatory Steps to Invite Revelation:
- Slow down. Find peaceful places, linger there, practice being aware. “Be still, and know that I am God.” Ps 46:10
- Set the Mood. Soft sacred music can create an atmosphere that invites revelation. Jesus sang a hymn before entering the Mount of Olives. Matt 26:30
- Recognize. Sacred moments happen to everyone but are often ignored. When a baby is born or a person dies, the place feels holy. Special events sometimes evoke a sense of sacredness.
- Be reverent. “Remember that that which cometh from above is sacred, and must be spoken with care, and by constraint of the Spirit.” D&C 63:64
