#Open your spirit. You probably also think you know God, and you may, but it can only help you if you open yourself up to new spiritual experiences. You can't tell God who to be, only He can show you. Find new ways of worship or see how other churches work, in order to open your spirit. God will show you the right way when you do.[[Image:Be Filled with the Holy Spirit Step 2.jpg|center]]

#Stop listening to spiritual advice from others. You can even stop reading this advice if you want to but the most important thing is to start using your own judgement. God gave you Reason for a reason. You don't need someone to interpret the word of God for you, you can read a Bible. You can research and learn until you can read the Bible better than anyone else. Then, use your own judgement to tell you what God wants. He won't let you be led astray...but as a wise man once said, "Fear a man who pulls from one book."[[Image:Be Filled with the Holy Spirit Step 3.jpg|center]]

#*Be especially wary of those that try to tell you that you have to  [[Appreciate Speaking in Tongues|speak in tongues]]  in order to know that you are filled with the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues is a spiritual gifts, but it is one of 15 spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit might give you when he fills you. When the Holy Spirit enters the people in Acts 2, they speak in tongues, yes. But these aren't gibberish made up languages. God gives people from different countries the ability to talk to each other across language barriers. What this means is that being filled with the Holy Spirit is more about overcoming differences and getting together in a love of God.

#Look in your heart for answers. Once you've opened yourself to God and stopped listening to every word out of the mouth of mortals as if they were the next gospel, look in your heart and you will find what you need. This will grow your faith and open your heart for the Holy Spirit to fill you, in an extra way.  Every Christian receives the Holy Spirit when they are saved, but you can ask God for an extra filling of the Holy Spirit whenever you want. God has filled your heart with his knowledge, and when you look there and think about what feels right to you, you will find what you are looking for. God will not lead you astray. The devil may have his tricks but when we see them, we know them for what they are in our hearts.[[Image:Be Filled with the Holy Spirit Step 4.jpg|center]]

#Stop hurting yourself. You're probably having a hard time in life right now. That's why you're seeking a better relationship with God, right? Seek this relationship with God but remember that you must begin by respecting yourself. Stop doing the things that are making your life harder and begin to respect yourself and work for a better life. For the Bible tells us, "So, brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercies, I encourage you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service. Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature." (Romans 12:1-2). This means that '''you''' are the most important thing to God and that living your life well is the best way to give him thanks. Do this first, and you will be ready for the Holy Spirit.[[Image:Be Filled with the Holy Spirit Step 5.jpg|center]]
