Alignment is one of those key foundation pieces that is so important when you want to accomplish something. It is coming up often lately so I thought I would write a follow up to my podcast on the same topic. As a health and money coach this shows up in all the work I do with clients. It also comes into play when we are looking at our mindset and our self-sabotaging behaviours.
Alignment by definition is an arrangement in a strategy line, or in correct or appropriate relative positions. Let’s look at if from this perspective….Everything in this Universe is energy. When we desire something we need to align our energy of that which we desire.
Without alignment we are sabotaging all our efforts and gains we make towards our goals. You can say you want something but if you don’t take action then what you say means nothing. Well….sometimes. We do have to be careful about what we say because the Universe will deliver. The context I am talking about here is our goals and our desires.
I will give simple examples for both money and health. For money, if you set a goal to reduce your debt and then choose to spend money that you don’t have then you are not acting in alignment. How can you expect to get out of debt when you are creating more debt. The same goes for health. If you set a goal for a strong healthy body and then feed it processed foods and do not exercise, then here again you are not in alignment. In order to get what we desire we need to be in alignment in our thoughts and our actions.
Now, that looks pretty obvious but in reality it is not. Sometimes alignment is much more subtle. Our subconscious can plays havoc with us when we tell it things that are not in alignment with our goals. This is where mindset enters. We have many underlying beliefs and thoughts that rule what happens in our life. We can say all the affirmations in the world but if deep inside we do not believe it, it is really hard for the Universe to deliver. It is like asking for more money in your life but not believing you are worthy of that money. You see this with people that work really hard and never seem to get ahead. A wealthy mindset knows they will be successful with money and that they can have lots…without jeopardizing someone else.
You must show up at the energy frequency of what you want. If you want to be financially abundant you have to have the mindset and take the actions to get what you want. You must become the frequency of what you want to attract before it will happen.
Use your feelings to guide you on this journey. If you listen carefully your feelings will guide you in the right direction. More often than not we know when we are doing something that is not in alignment with our higher desire. You will learn to recognize your self sabotaging behaviours or even your mindset that may not be congruent with your desires.
Try it out. Choose one thing you desire and are manifesting in your life and spend the day with it in the forefront of your consciousness all day. Think about what you are doing and why. Is it going to get you where you want to go. Manifesting is not about just wishing for something and then hoping it will show up. I consider myself to be a very good at manifesting. I have the desire for something and then take the actions necessary for it to come to fruition. Our thoughts must be very clear and in alignment. There can be no mixed messages! The Universe does not know what to do with a mixed message (ie. actions and thoughts not congruent).
