How do we know we are out of alignment with our inner self? A big clue is when we are indecisive. We may keep researching online, keep asking different people for their opinion concerning our situation, but we still feel like a hamster chasing its tail running on a wheel, getting nowhere , staying stuck in a maize of indecision. Inwardly we really know what choice to make…yet, we allow yourself to become a sandwich of fear..fear of the intuitive wisdom that our life is about to experience a huge change. Aligning with ourself will provide the keystone that more information will never provide. The keystone is to trust our intuition and follow through with what we keep hearing is the right action to take.
Don’t get me wrong. Looking and searching for meaningful answers and attempting to improve ourselves is a good thing. However, sometimes we cannot see the forest for the trees and we look everywhere for the solution…everywhere except what is right in front of our faces. We are like the cat running from its predator, hightailing it up a tree going to higher branches to avoid being caught. Just when we feel safe from our predator, the tree shape shifts into another object and the chase becomes even more challenging. Perhaps all we had to do was to stop and ask of ourself: What is our real motive in running and thinking we need to be a better person than we already are?
Perhaps we are carrying around a version of what we think we are supposed to look like to prove we are a success in relationships, in our career, in our community, and in our choices. Are we spending energy and time visualizing a picture of manifesting some version of ourselves that isn’t even who we are or who we want to become? Have we considered if we are somehow able to pull this off and achieve the outcome we are so frantically chasing will we be at peace and be willing to stop and enjoy ourselves? Will we ever reach a place that we are enough as we are or will there always be another mountain to climb?
What if we each knew that by aligning with ourselves we would discover the magic elixir of clear thinking, easy and reachable decision-based goals, and avoiding the stress of creating more to do lists to show we have arrived successfully in life?
I have a strong feeling life does not have to be as complicated as human doings trying to become human beings make it. Some ideas that I have found work :
- Surrender from a place of love, not a place of fear and force. Trusting the Universe has our back and is not testing us, but is supporting us. When we let go, we can breathe freely and the inner truth of who we really are is revealed. We no longer have to become someone we think others want us to be . We can relax in living a magical life of being just who we are….embracing the things we truly are passionate about, and skipping down the Yellow Brick Road of contentment .
- When we let things flow, no matter what comes up, we release the need and belief our lives have to constantly struggle. We do not even need to know how things are going to unfold and evolve. In other words, we do not have to be controlling our outcomes.
- If you were given the magic wand of creation, who would you be? How would you spend each day and night? What kinds of people would you spend time with? How would people view you and talk with you when you transformed into the best version of yourself? Ask yourself right now which is the ideal path to embark upon that will open the door to your shining , wonderful self to not only the rest of the world but also to yourself? This is simple but we may try to complicate it ..can you imagine living a magical life 24/7? Use that magic wand and align with your true self.
- The point is not to want to be better. Take action and act on that deep, age old desire to shift into the person you have been hoping and dreaming of becoming. When we step out of our old skin and cocoon into the amazing person that we already are, we are aligned with ourself…the self that was always within us, and who we really are and always have been. Who we are is The Who we have allowed and given permission to our attention to focus upon. Where is your attention right now? Mine is on that radiating light pouring out of my heart and soul. We have the power to choose. What is your choice?
