You’re clear about what you want. And you know the universe is abundantly capable of delivering it. If you’re not yet living the experience you’ve intended, it’s for one reason only: you need to align your energy to receive.
Understanding Alignment and Misalignment
The easiest way to understand what energy alignment is to explore its complete opposite: split energy.
Split energy is when the energy of your desire is opposed or blocked by some contradictory energy. This contradictory energy could be a belief, a memory, or a limiting expectation. It could even be something as seemingly harmless as a perception: Because this is how things are, this is how things will always be.
Let’s say for example that you desire to weigh about 20 pounds less than you currently do. If your energy is truly aligned with that desire, you’ll naturally make choices that support it. Your thoughts will generate creative ways to switch up your diet. Your emotions will flow in the good-feeling range of hope and inspiration, and your physical body will be charged with vitality.
But if your energy is split by an existing belief, expectation, or perception, that’s an obstacle in your path. Trying to achieve any goal when your energy is misaligned is like trying to run across a finish line carrying a 100-pound weight.
One surefire way to know that your energy is split is by the presence of negative thoughts and uncomfortable feelings. A part of you wants what you want, and another part of you doubts your ability to create it. Split energy not only feels horrible; it blocks our ability to receive all of the blessings we’ve asked for.
The great news is, energy alignment is your natural state! You were literally born receptive, trusting, and open to receiving the abundance of the universe. Learning to align your energy is actually more of a process of unlearning. We just have to stop engaging in the habits of thought that split our energy.
Here are 3 powerful keys for aligning your energy to more easily magnetize all that you desire to receive:
Key #1: Uncover your hidden allegiances.
At every moment, and with every thought and emotion we offer, we are breathing life into one of two realities: a reality that we don’t want to live, or a reality that we do.
Many of us are unconsciously aligned with the very realities we’re trying hard not to create. We align ourselves with those realities by thinking about them and therefore feeding them with our energy. Our negative emotions align us further with the outcomes we want most to avoid. And our memories of the past and expectations of the future do the same. To align your energy with any desired outcome – like joy, abundance and ease – you first need to uncover what you’re currently aligned with.
Notice your dominant thoughts in feelings in any area of life where you’re not experiencing the ease that you desire. This is the key to uncovering your hidden energy alliances.
Here are some common – and incredibly detrimental – perceptions that you may unconsciously be aligning your energy with:
- Life is hard.
- I’m stuck in this situation.
- Other people have greater advantages than I do.
- No matter how hard I try, I can’t get ahead.
Our unconscious energy alliances are almost always tied to a victim mentality. Our perception is that life “happens to us,” and not that we are the powerful creators of our lives.
It takes honesty and courage to admit that we’re been seeing ourselves as powerless or as victims. But in taking this important step, we open up the possibility for a new reality to emerge.
Key #2: Re-align your energy by acknowledging your true place in the universe.
Perception equals reality. When we perceive ourselves as small, separate, and at the mercy of powers greater than ourselves, we this becomes our reality. And when we shift our perception, our entire experience of life shifts, too.
What if you stopped to really acknowledge the perfection of the universe in which you were born? To allow yourself to be awed by how infinite it is, and yet how every single detail is created in perfect order?
- That we have sun to warm us and air to breathe…
- That the plants continue to germinate and seeds grow toward the light…
- That our earth is hurdling through space at dizzying speeds and yet doesn’t run into anything!
These are some of the many astounding realities of our existence that we tend to take for granted.
Allow yourself to acknowledge the infinite intelligence that governs this universe and everything in it. And now acknowledge that YOU are an integral part of this energy stream. You have access to the intelligence of the universe itself.
You were born with an innate ability to align your energy with the energy that creates and sustains this world. And as you do, you receive a continual flow of insights and inspiration. Like being a chef in a well-stocked kitchen, you have everything you need to create a joyous, satisfying life experience.
Key #3: Align your energy with the presence of your desire; not its absence.
What you focus on, you draw into your life. Through the power of focus, you summon powerful creative energy. And that energy makes up the basis of every single manifestation.
To magnetize greater ease, prosperity, love, or laughter, align your energy with the presence of those things. Recognize that they are available to you right now; in whatever present circumstance you find yourself.
Instead of deferring your happiness to some future time, reach for things that bring you happiness now. Allow yourself to feel fabulous for no good reason. Give yourself permission to relax a little, to play, and to acknowledge the many blessings all around you.
There is no limit to the amount of happiness we can experience. There is no limit to how much love, laughter, excitement, or satisfaction we can feel. This universe is unendingly abundant, which means that it has the ability to yield to us whatever experiences we desire. All we need to do to claim the abundance that is our birthright is to align ourselves with the energy of our own desires.
Do everything you can think of that brings you a feeling of relief, of acceptance, of relaxation. This is how you bridge the gap between where you are now and anywhere you desire to be.
