We always hear the old saying follow your heart, but what if your heart is in direct alignment with disaster, drama and a world of hurt? Do we actually know when we are in love or falling in love? It is my understanding that love in its truest form has no pain or drama and doesn’t require work. If that is true then what is truly at play when we find ourselves in a situation that clearly we shouldn’t be in? What leads us to the door step of this situation? It all comes down to choices. Sure, the heart loves who it loves and wants what it wants, but what did you do to align yourself to that? When you said you wanted the love of your life what did that truly entail? I can’t tell you how many times I have set my intentions and when they were answered I was like, “Oh! Did I really ask for that?” Being clear, detailed and very honest with yourself is the only way to ensure the proper outcome for you. Take responsibility for your life and the things in it. Yet, be gentle with yourself. The bottom line here is that we are all learning how to navigate our life. It doesn’t matter if you at 2 years old or 50, we are all just trying to figure this all out.
So how do we stay truly aligned with our intentions? Here are some guidelines:
Be honest with yourself
Stay committed to your intentions
Play witness to all your emotions for that is the true vibration the universe is listening to
Physically do something that aligns you with what you want
If at the end you still end up with a crazy situation, look back at your choices honestly. Trust me, you will find where you turned left when you should have turned right. This all starts and ends with you. The starting line is knowing where your truly are in your life at this moment. Here are some questions to help your process:
If you had all the money you needed, where and how would you live?
If you had the answers to your problems, how long would it take to solve them?
Do you have a personal or professional vision? If so, what is it?
What is probably not possible for you to achieve in this lifetime that you wish you could?
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest, how would you rate the quality of your life today?
Using that same scale, how high will that number likely rise during your lifetime?
What is a dream or goal that you have given up on and why?
What part of you have you given up on and what are you willing to do about it?
What goal or part of your life have you put on the back burner because the “time isn’t right”?
What part of you is just waiting for the right person or opportunity to catalyze it? Are you willing to be your own catalyst?
