"We attract what we are aligned with whether consciously or unconsciously."
When I read the above statement something clicked in me. I read it and instantly knew that it is True. We attract what we are aligned with - whether we know it or not.
And…oftentimes, when it comes to the areas of our lives that are the most important and we want to attract and keep what we truly value - those are the areas that feel so out of grasp, like water slipping through your fingers.
Do you agree?
A client asked me the other day, why is it so easy for me to be calm and attract things that I don’t care much about so effortlessly - but when it comes to what truly matters for me - what is most important, I feel anxious and I overanalyze - and then keep things stuck?
I’ve spent a lifetime of relying on other people’s opinions.
Whether it was hiring a career consultant (notice I said consultant, not coach) to tell me what I *should* do based on my skills and background vs. my true passion...to going to a spiritual “guru” to tell me where my life was headed based on reading an astrological chart…
Whatever it was - I’ve had a lifelong habit of believing other people had my answers - and believing they knew better than I did/do.
But how can someone else know your Truth? How can someone else know and tell you which direction your life should go? Is their intuition, knowing, or spiritual connection stronger than yours?
No it isn’t..but oftentimes you may believe someone else...
I was speaking with someone recently who asked me “So when you experienced that hurt at an early-age, who did you tell about it?” “Nobody” I answered.
What this individual helped me realize is - “Nobody” quickly became my companion in life -that voice in my head who kept me company and helped me create stories about why I *think* things happened and what they meant vs. simply just letting what happened, BE.
And I’ve continued to keep Nobody around for most of my life. Relying on my mind-made stories to help me decipher events or circumstances and create meaning out of them. And...when I didn’t have a direct answer, that meaning I made up usually was a negative conclusion vs. a positive one. This conclusion...
When you go to different levels in your own growth and evolution, new challenges with "not enough" will inevitably emerge.
I heard someone say the other day "New Level, New Devil." Very true!
Yet, our "not enoughness" at different levels need not be viewed as a "bad", but just an opportunity to get closer to your untapped potential and your life's calling/purpose.
And...like any worthwhile endeavor, you get to SEE and realize your blocks. Otherwise, they stay dormant within and hold you back. Always remember, if you can't see it, you can't transform it.
One of the biggest blocks I see with folks in their pursuit to do & BE more in their life, work and relationships, is: Believing they don't have authority. Authority over your thoughts. Authority over your self-image.
If you think...
