THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
Pull Yourself in Alignment, Before the Universe Does it for You
I have to pull myself back into alignment again and again, it's so easy to step out of line. One thing can trigger you, and the next thing you know you're on a tangent of aggravation. I had a moment like this earlier, so I had to gather my emotions, and chill y'all. It's so easy to fall for the tricks of the aversion because it knows us just like our fondness does. When you know your weaknesses, you know how to push against attacks on your spirit. I know that I have a history of being a hot head, it is in my nature to react, and cool off later. I've had to work on training myself to respond and approach conflict with calm and coolness, although it doesn't always turn out that way.
All kinds of irritating things happen when we are in the space of misalignment. Our emotions and mind takes over our reasoning and we can't see clear on how to approach conflict. We experience situations that test us all the time, but when we are out of alignment, we fall deep into the typhoon, and we are swept away by it. We loose important connections and relationships with people when we are operating out of alignment. Our responses stem straight from our ego when we are out of alignment with our true nature. We give away our power to the ego, going along with whatever it tells us. At this point we are ignoring God. We are not listening to God because we can't hear God at that point. We have drowned out our inner voice and we are listening to the ego's voice. The ego is not real, it's a fictional character that we have made up and built up over the years to protect ourselves when we don't need this false sense of security.
This is a huge topic for me because so many regretful things have happened to me out of alignment with God. I have made decisions that have led me to pain, anger, guilt, regret, and shame being out of alignment, and it was an appropriate time for God to snatch me back into alignment. I have never felt like I've had the chances that most people get when it comes to being out of alignment. I have always felt like karma has come quick for me and that God holds me accountable a lot faster than other people. I feel like God has a special purpose for us all and I feel like God has a purpose for me to do special works for people, and I won't be able to do that out of alignment.
I have been pushed back into alignment. I have been moved back into place, shoved back into place, and I have been shown my place. I have been disobedient to the Voice. I have been out of order, thinking, saying, and doing things that aren't in alignment with my true self. I have gone lower than you could ever imagine, even inviting low spirits in my lowered state. I have thought the most destructive thoughts, and contemplated giving up, becoming disgusted with myself and my actions.
And through all of the self-abuse that I have put myself through, I found that I could reach inside of myself and touch God. I crawl out of the inner mess within myself to find that I have to love myself again and again. Of course the stubborn part of me wants to be in an angry state because I have a right to be, right? No, that's just feeding the ego more of what it wants, more to keep the ego alive. I am about starving this ego. It can become a struggle to set aside the ego because we feel like we have to protect ourselves. God protects us.
The tests keep coming. I deflect these testy situations in the most balanced way that I can. I don't always past these tests and I have to go and meditate to recover, but I will not abuse myself for feeling the way I feel and responding the way that I respond. I feel the human part of me even though I feel the spirit part of me more. I speak energy, I think energy, and I act in energy. I make my decisions based on energy. Everything is energy, that's all that there is, there is nothing else.
I have made some regrettable decisions when I was out of alignment with myself and it was like the devil was driving my car, and I was riding shot gun. These lessons were significant in shaping into who I am right now. I am still a divine work in progress. I aim to be better in how I treat people instead of disconnecting with them at the first sign of unfavorable energy. I give people the chances that I wish I'd be given. I know that we are connected and even though we may separate from each other, we are still one.
When we are out of focus with our true nature, we are lost. We are wandering around aimlessly, without using our Divine guide for direction. God know this, so God leads us back to our true nature whether it's comfortable for us or not. God leads us back to who we are. We may go through addiction, abuse, anger, pain, struggle, loss of faith, God is still in control through all of these things. God is still leading us back to our true nature through all of these things. We just want feel, this is why we get out of alignment at times. We don't want to face our truth and we step out of alignment to distract ourselves from the truth.
We aren't aware of what we are doing when we are out of alignment. We aren't living in awareness when we are out of alignment, we are most likely living in fear. It's the fear that keeps us out of alignment with our true nature. Our true nature doesn't care what anyone else says, it stands still.
The Universe will interrupt our shenanigans to bring us back to our true nature. The Universe will allow us to experience some great pain out of alignment to gain our attention so that we can get back on track. This has happened to me several times. I have allowed people to bring me out of alignment, saying yes to them when my heart was saying no. I wasn't being true to myself.
The Universe will put obstacles in our path, prompt an extreme event, something catastrophic, something traumatic, something extremely painful to put our focus back on God. These events bring forth a divine change in our lives to lead us back to where we come from, we come from God. We get here and we get wrapped up in all of this physical stuff, and material life, forgetting who we really are. We forget that these things don't define us. We forget that we a spiritual beings having a physical experience, and when we leave, every piece of material including our physical bodies will remain. We are pure consciousness, and when we are tapped into the highest consciousness, everything in our lives begins to work in coordination.
In the midst of chaos there is order.
What we see is punishment is protection. God is protecting us. The Universe is always protecting us. Even our own subconscious mind cloaks itself in situations and events to save us, to save us from ourselves. We get big mad about the things not going the way we wanted them to, about things not going the way we planned, it's the Universe saying no, that's not for you. I have tried going around these situations but it only made it worse.
We cannot manifest anything that we want when we are out of alignment with ourselves. We wonder why things are happening fast enough for us, it's because we are not in alignment with God. We think that we are in alignment when we are not. When we are living in low emotions and fear, we are definitely not in alignment with our true nature. When we are pitying ourselves, feeling unworthy, we are out of alignment with our true nature. Our true nature is whole and perfect, even though we like to say how imperfect we are. Would you call God imperfect? God lives inside of you, you are God's representation, so are you not perfect the way you are? We have misconstrued view of what perfect is supposed to be, perfection is perception, and opinion. It is perfect, and you are too, because you are the way God intended you to be.
This is why the Universe will drag you back into line if it has to in order to get your attention. The Universe knows why you're here, it is you that have forgotten. We get caught up in this life experience because even through the sad things that happen, it can be an exhilarating experience. Let's just be honest here, the experiences here can be fun and addicting. We have to be mindful of what we are doing at all times, that is awareness of ourselves. See yourself, look at yourself with neutral eyes, and you will see what you are really doing. Are you living for God or for these worldly things?
It's okay for us to enjoy these worldly things, they just shouldn't become our primary focus. Our internal state of being should be our focus because our inner being determines every experience outside of us. If we live in a fear of something happening or not happening, we are out of alignment with our true nature, and we are drawing whatever we fear near.
When the Universe corrects us by pulling us back into alignment with ourselves, we should be grateful. It's a painful process to be pulled back into alignment by the Universe, but we grow from it, we gain spiritual strength through it.
When we are out of alignment with ourselves it doesn't feel good inside. It doesn't feel right when we are out of alignment. If we can step outside of ourselves and take a look at ourselves we will be able to see what is happening to us. We keep going out of alignment, offending people, getting offended by people, letting our ego control us, forgetting to be grateful, complaining, and doing things that do not resonate with our spirit. We do things that we don't want to even though our inner being is telling us to stop. Our inner being is telling us to stop doing things that make us cringe. We start saying things that we don't normally say, and feeling careless when we are out of alignment.
One time I was out of alignment with myself and I kept saying that I didn't care about anything. I felt this way too, I felt like I didn't care about anything. My doctor had told me that I didn't have too much longer to live, and it felt like my body was betraying me, when it was me that was betraying my mind and body. I was taking on an uncaring attitude feeling that I would be protecting myself if I didn't care. I was verbalizing how I didn't care about my relationships and how my life was going.
I was emotionally exhausted and I wasn't taking care of myself. I was tired of fighting the health fight. I was like, "man forget it, forget everything and everybody. At the rate that I was going, the Universe had to give me a big shove to the ground to wake me up to what I was thinking, saying, and doing. I was in alignment, but it wasn't with anything that I truly desired. I wasn't in alignment with my true nature, I was lost. I messed up a relationship during this time when I was supposed to be the example. I should have caring for myself and being kind to myself, instead I was going backwards and participating in things that wasn't conducive to my healing or to my spiritual progression.
Once I messed the relationship up, which was probably done intentionally done, cloaked through my subconscious mind, I was on a road to recovery. I stopped echoing the words of death that the doctor spoke to me. I started listening to God's voice. I had to forgive myself for all that I had done out of alignment. I was feeling like I wanted to die because living felt too hard. I should have never been involved in any relationships, but focused on my healing. I was saying yes trying to go and hang out, when my mind and body were saying no. I didn't feel good when I went, but through it all, I never was fake about it. I was transparent and honest about my feelings. What I didn't see is how those feelings were so intense that they were triggering to other people. I didn't give care to it, because I was out of alignment with my true self. I was being judgmental towards myself and others, and I was beginning to lose my words, I wasn't focused on what I needed to focus on, until the Universe gave me a nudge,
It's better if we check ourselves before the Universe checks us.
Align yourself with what you want, with what you need, and what is close to God, and you will never have to worry about being shoved into alignment by the Universe. We can only receive the things that we are aligned with.
No money, not aligned with it, thinking in terms of lack. No romance, not aligned with it, thinking and feeling in terms of unworthiness and untrustworthy. No opportunities, not aligned with it, thinking that things are too good to be true. What are you aligning with?
What kind of energies are you aligned with? Are they good energies or toxic ones?
You can be aligned with many things, but being aligned with one's true nature is how everything comes together for you.
Does it feel right? What you're doing, does it feel right? Does it feel good inside for you?
Are things going well for you?
How do you know that you're in alignment with your true nature?
When what you are thinking, saying, and doing are is the same. There is no conflict between thought, word, and action, when we are aligned.
