The brilliance of blogging is being able to express opinions about things we feel strongly about. Likewise, blogging is a great opportunity to share knowledge about things we teach, study, love, and experience. With that preface, what the heck happened this week? Surely, there’s some astrological explanation….. but clients and friends everywhere are facing conflict and startling realities about relationships. In essence, the Universe is asking humans to take a stand and take responsibility for crafting the life we want.
Based on the law of attraction, action follows thought. Basically, everything that we experience began as a thought, and action is a product of that thought. We have the ability to attract and create both good and bad, with the cumulative effort being exactly the same. This is the personal element, but there are also interpersonal dynamics. Specifically, other people bring in their own intention and effect through what they are attracting through thought. This is the part that we cannot control, BUT, we can control our reaction by how we respond.
Ultimately, we teach people how to treat us. Really. And for those who are tired of being taken advantage of, this speaks directly to you. There is a breaking point, and someday, you find yourself saying “enough is enough”. The important thing is to speak your truth with love, and to learn that it’s okay to speak up. Trust me, it does get easier after a few times.
The challenging part comes in when there are groups and organizations involved, or for those who volunteer. The more players there are, the more important it is for you to stay in touch with your personal role, and to clearly define how you’re being treated. Unfortunately, there are times when individuals are treated so poorly, or are devalued, and the best choice is to withdraw from the group. This is just a small part of the process called self-spiritual alignment.
The Universe really, really wants us to get it right. Each day, as we make choices, some things happen very easy with little effort, and others just never seem to come easily. Know what I mean? If you start watching closely at how easily things come to you or don’t, you’ll start to see. When we are placed “in the flow”, and work with the laws of attraction, the Universe really tries to light the path. For those who are stubborn, (and you know who you are), you will continue to force the issue until things (appear) to work.
Likewise, relationships will run smoothly, or flare with problems in our lives. Essentially everything we’re involved with is subject to self-spiritual alignment. What this means is that we are fine tuning our vibration, working on our “stuff”, and being good people. Through the alignment process, those people and situations that are no longer aligned with our highest good begin to fall away… or at least become difficult. It’s the Universe’s way of saying “it’s time to grow and move on”.
Honestly, for those who like control, this is NOT an easy process. It’s understandable when we feel angry when someone cheats our child or a friend out of an opportunity, or lets us down. As easy as it is to blow up, know what this is the Universe’s way of saying “move on, you deserve better”.
We don’t have access to the bigger plan, so we have to trust. It isn’t easy, but if you give spiritual-self alignment a chance, you won’t be disappointed. Put yourself, your emotions, and your reactions on auto piolet for a month and let me know how it goes.The reality is that the lesson will keep repeating in different forms in our lives until we get it right.
