From 7-11 Employee to Oprah Producer –  Harnessing the Principles of Alignment and Surrender

From 7-11 Employee to Oprah Producer – Harnessing the Principles of Alignment and Surrender

How do you go from convenience store employee to an executive producer for the most popular show on TV?     

Author Sheri Salata manifested this remarkable career transformation, from 7-11 employee to Oprah producer!  And on this week’s Desire Factor Podcast, she illuminates her path to achieving it.  What will surprise you is that her journey was not one of hard work, sacrifice, or meticulous planning.  Instead, she harnessed the universal principles of alignment and surrender and watched as the path unfolded beneath her feet. 

Here are some of the key points that we discussed in detail on the show.

First, recognize there’s a limit to what hard work can achieve.

Most of us were brought up in an outdated “no pain, no gain” mentality.   We were taught to buckle down and suck it up because achieving our goals takes hard work and planning.   Of course, action is an important component of any creation.  But there is a limit to how much we can create through hard work alone.   

Think of the people you know who genuinely seem happy and fulfilled.  You know, those who have vitality and clarity; who have plenty of money, creative self-expression, and loving and supportive relationships.  What you’ll discover is that they aren’t forcing those things into their experience.  They’re attracting them by bringing themselves into an internal state of alignment.  

Alignment opens doors that can’t be opened by force.     

What does it mean to be in alignment?

Alignment is a state of being in which our hearts and minds are in perfect sync with our divine nature.  And when our energy is aligned, we are at our most creative, resourceful, and productive.  In the state of alignment, our actions are inspired rather than contrived, and far more effective because they’re backed up by our full spiritual power.  There is an unobstructed flow between the physical and nonphysical aspects of us.  And this connection yields far greater results than anything we can accomplish from a disconnected state.

Energetic alignment is always accompanied by a sense of ease and grace; of going with the flow rather than striving to make things happen.  We unexpectedly find ourselves in the right place at the right time.  We feel guided, sourced, and blessed.  And – because our actions are infused with energy and intention – we accomplish more with less effort. 

Working too hard is actually counter-productive because it takes you out of your natural state of alignment.  

Think back to a time you forced yourself to take an action you really didn’t want to take.  What you’ll realize is that in such moments, you were seeing the world through a lens of scarcity or lack.  Maybe an important deadline was looming, or an event triggered some primal survival urge.  In those moments, our thoughts race, our bodies register anxiety, and we become misaligned to the very outcomes we desire.

When we’re out of alignment, the next step is not clear, but we feel compelled to act anyway. And so we act without clarity, and without any aligned energy behind our actions.  In that state, everything is hit-and-miss, like throwing mud at a wall and hoping some of it will stick.  We expend a ton of energy but we’re running in circles, not getting anywhere.  

It’s important to understand that this type of action is actually counter-productive to achieving our desires.  Yes, we’re building momentum, but it’s leading to more frenetic energy, not more ease and joy.  So in those moments, as counter-intuitive as it may seem, the most beneficial thing we can do is pull back.  

Whenever you feel like the momentum of a situation is moving against you, your best course of action is to step away from it.  And if you can’t step back physically, do your best to withdraw and reclaim your mental energy.  In those moments, regaining your alignment and softening your internal struggle is your highest possible priority.  Do your best to surrender any urge to control the situation, and focus on becoming receptive to solutions.  

Surrendering allows your perfect next steps to unfold.

Is it possible to receive something when your hand is clenched tightly into a fist?  No. To receive, our hand has to be open.  And what is true of our physical body is also true of our energy body.  To receive all the blessings that life has to offer, we have to be open to receive them.  

As Sheri describes in the podcast, a sequence of doors began to open as soon as she surrendered her need to control.   New opportunities naturally come into view when we stop trying to force things to happen.  

Do your best to surrender your need to know when, where, and how your desires will manifest.  Trust that in this universe of infinite possibilities, what you want is available to you.  Your only work is to align yourself in your heart, mind, and belly to the essence of what you desire.  The infinite resources of the universe will take care of the rest.  

This is the real joy in life:  To go with the flow of abundance rather than swimming against the current, trusting that the universe has our back.

How to Find Freedom Within Your Soul-Sucking Job While Moving Toward Your Ideal Career

When you feel stuck in a soul-sucking job, that low-level energy can easily spill over into other areas of your life.  And, at first glance, it certainly seems like the solution is to simply jump ship, and find a more ideal working environment.  After all, if your coworkers were more competent, or your customers were more pleasant, you’d surely feel happier, right? 

But here’s the rub:  Unless you find a way to shine brightly and excel in your current job, your next one likely won’t be any better.  Why?  Because the energy you bring to any environment determines the quality of your experience while there.

Here are 3 energy mastery practices that can help you find freedom in a soul-sucking job, while moving toward your ideal career.

 

Energy Mastery Practice #1:  Acknowledge that because you are the one who experiences your job as soul-sucking, you are the one whose perception needs to shift.

While it’s certainly easy to blame our emotions on other people, doing so only casts us in the role of victim.   It’s far more powerful to accept that, whatever the environment or situation, our energy imbalance is occurring within us.  And because we are in control of our own energy flow, we alone have the ability to restore our experience of freedom.    

Consider for a moment that your soul-sucking job is like a gravitational force weighing down your naturally buoyant energy field.   And now, take this a step further and recognize that the downward pull is not coming from an external source at all.  In fact, it’s made up of all the experiences, conclusions, and stories you have come to believe to be true.  Each of these thoughts transmits an energy, and this energy – and not the job itself – is what’s bringing you down.  

The habitual way you think and feel about your career creates a momentum of vibration.  And when you perceive your job is a soul-sucking place to be, that momentum is a downward spiral.   

By repeating the same thoughts, perceptions, and moods day in and day out, deep grooves are formed within the brain’s neural pathways. The more practiced you become in these habits of thought and perception, the easier they are to perpetuate.  And unless you disrupt this momentum and replace it with a different one, it will continue.

To transition from your soul-sucking job and toward your ideal career, you’ll have to overcome the drag of this gravitational force.  To do this, you simply need to master your power of focus.  Begin giving more attention to the reality you desire than to the reality you are presently living.

Energy Mastery Practice #2:  Shift your primary focus from the “problem” to the solution

Most of us have been conditioned to scan for problems; not to be available for solutions.  But actively railing against what’s wrong with a situation blinds you to alternatives that may be right in front of you.   

We simply cannot dwell on any current problem and simultaneously attract its solution.  We have to make a choice:  Focus on where we are now, or where we want to go.  Give the majority of our attention to conditions that we find soul-sucking, or focus on the ideal career we desire.    

The bad feelings you harbor about your soul-sucking job are primarily the result of your perception.  Everything, in fact, is based on our perception.  Nothing is simply “the way it is.”  Every molecule that is called into being is activated by the attention of you, the observer.   If you focus on what’s missing or not turning out well, you simply perpetuate that experience.  But if you focus all there is to appreciate about you and your life, you start a whole new point of attraction.   

To transition from problem to solution – and from your soul-sucking job to a more ideal career – make a list of positive aspects.   

 

What new skills or talents do you now possess as a result of the experience of working in this job?  What clarity do you now have about the ideal career you’d like to move toward?  Are there other benefits – such as enjoying greater financial security or making new friends – that have come out of the experience?   Make a list of all the ways your current job has evolved, benefited, or supported you.  And read this list often.  

Remember, your present circumstances are merely a jumping-off point for all that is in the process of unfolding.  You can improve your mood – and your effectiveness – by focusing forward.  Look beyond what currently is, and toward the reality that is in the process of coming into being.  

Energy Mastery Practice #3:  Invite the mood, emotion and energy of your ideal career into your life.

How would you feel if you were already working in your ideal career?  Or if you had successfully risen above the soul-sucking nature of your present job?   Would you feel a sense of freedom?  Or accomplishment?  Would you feel proud of yourself for mastering your own focus?  

Chances are, there are plenty of things you would do – and things you would definitely not do – if you were already living in this desired reality.   The key to creating your ideal career is to begin inviting those thoughts, feelings, and actions into your life, now.   

Most of the world is reacting to life and allowing the conditions that surround them to influence their behavior.   But you can choose to stop being someone who needs positive conditions to justify feeling positive!  

You can decide instead to be someone who’s clear about what you desire, and allow the energy of that desire to guide you.   

Imagine the energies of freedom, expansion, ease, connection, and wellbeing pouring from your divine source into you.  Feel this frequency entering and uplifting every aspect of your being.  Revel in the understanding that your energy field affects everyone and everything around you, and look for evidence of your upgraded point of attraction.

Where Do You Want To Heal?

Where do you want to heal?

Can you imagine harnessing the power of true healing? 

As human beings living in our physical bodies – sometimes we experience pain, illness, disease, and other ailments. What if you could heal yourself? What if you knew how to focus your Divine energy to achieve total well-being?

When we understand that everything is energy, we can work with that energy to achieve our desires. It sounds simple because it is when you understand how it works.

When you heal and eliminate blocks that have been holding you back – you open yourself to unlimited possibilities.

You might be asking: How do I do this? How can I heal?

Christy and The Council have been helping clients eliminate stuck energy so that they can experience true healing. When that happens, you remove the blocks to your abundance, success, well-being and more. Sounds great, right? 

And we know it works.

One of Christy’s clients was going blind in one eye. Through working with Christy and The Council, the disease process was reversed, and she is now completely healed. 

Another client who experienced migraines throughout her entire life, needing ten different preventative medications to cope. After working with The Council – her headaches are gone, and she does not need ANY medication. She found complete freedom from pain and from needing to constantly be prepared for an attack. She told us: “It was life-changing!”

And digestive issues? Christy and The Council routinely address these types of ailments – with incredible success.

Why? 

Because EVERYTHING is energy. 

Energy, whether positive or negative – carries with it a vibration. If you have a vibration that does not feel good, it’s likely there is stuck energy that must be processed. It’s kind of like emptying the dirty water out of a glass to replace it with clean water. Process the negative energy to replace it with positive energy.

That’s what Christy and The Council help you do.

What do you desire to release?

If you are experiencing physical ailments, they are most often caused by unprocessed negative energy. Once you get help processing that energy, you can release the ailment.

It’s really very simple. Yet – it’s crucial in taking care of our physical bodies. 

For this very reason – Christy and The Council are inviting you to a “Healing Event” – where you can get the help that will finally release any discomfort, disease, anxiety or concern you’re having.

Just attending the event can trigger positive change. Christy had a client in attendance who wasn’t even aware of their own desire for help, and later noticed a positive shift – because when The Council works on one, they work on all. This person started shedding unwanted weight with ease. Their energy increased which subsequently opened them up to even greater possibilities because they felt physically awesome. That same client wrote to Christy that they got a raise and a promotion at work because their focus had improved.

When you heal yourself, there are no limits to what you can be, do or have.

Are you ready to experience healing?

Join us on August 14th for the next Healing Event with Christy and The Council.

How to Be an Influencer Rather Than Someone Who is Easily Influenced

Do you consider yourself an influencer, or a person who is easily influenced?   

Are you able to “hold your own” in pretty much any situation?  Can you maintain a vibration of stability, of security, of inner peace in the face of another person’s fear?  Are you able to stay focused on your intended outcome, even in an environment that is chaotic or unstable?

From an energy mastery perspective, these are among the most important questions we can ask ourselves.  Maintaining our personal vibration, regardless of those around us, is crucial to our joy and our ability to deliberately create.  

And yet, how often do we find ourselves feeling irritated by another person’s laziness, or on edge in response to their bad mood? 

Of course, it’s easy to blame them for the dip in our vibration. 

After all, if they’d just behave, we’d be happy, right?!

The problem is, asking other people to change to make us feel better gives them the power to influence our vibration.  And as deliberate creators, our first goal is to reclaim this power for ourselves.  

Here are 3 steps for becoming a generator of your own mood, attitude, and vibration – regardless of what others are doing around you:

Step #1:  Acknowledge that you and you alone are in control of your own vibration.

We often tense against situations that we perceive will be unpleasant, and this is for one reason only:  We believe other people’s energies have the power to influence our energy stream.  And this is simply not the case! 

We are each in charge of our own energy alignment, and we are the only ones who can deviate from it.  

Think about it:  Can anyone besides you put a thought in your mind?  Can anyone besides you create tension or ease within your body?  

Yes, other people can and do broadcast discordant vibrations.  Yes, other people can invite you into a lower frequency of consciousness.  And certainly other people carry on all manner of unpleasant conversation.  But you are the one who has to opt in to these experiences by choosing to give your attention to it, or not.  Which brings us to the next step.   

Step #2:  Distract yourself from the unwanted momentum. 

In every situation or interaction, there are an infinite number of things you can choose to turn your attention to.  One choice is to focus on the moment-by-moment unfolding of events.  You can watch every detail and hang on every word.  But when the momentum of a situation is going sideways, focusing on the details of it is unwise.  So instead, engage your power of focus and turn your attention toward something more pleasing.  

Is there a breeze blowing through the space where you’re located?  Are there fragrant scents wafting by?  Do you appreciate the colors or aesthetics of the environment you’re in?  Are there parts of your own body that feel especially comfortable and at ease?  

If you can’t find anything enjoyable about the environment you’re situated in, do your best to find a good-feeling thought.

What areas of your life are going great?  Is there an experience or event coming up that you’re especially looking forward to? What recent experiences have you had that were interesting or fun?  

By deliberately turning your attention to pleasant things, you separate yourself from unwanted momentum.  You stop being influenced by the energy around you, and become practiced at generating your own vibration.  And this is the first step toward feeling good, even when others are trying to bring you down.  


Step #3: Choose your mood, your attitude – and therefore, your vibration – in advance of any encounter.  

Before you drag your physical body into any new interaction or experience, make sure your energy body is prepared.  This means taking the time to tune yourself to the experience you’re hoping to create.   Imagine the energies of joy, expansion, ease, connection and wellbeing bubbling up within you.  Feel this frequency entering and uplifting every aspect of your being. The higher you raise your energy frequency level ahead of time, the easier it will be to sustain that high-flying vibration.    

When it comes to the way we live our lives, we are all faced with a fundamental choice.  We can allow the dominant frequency of the world around us to calibrate our energy field, or we can take responsibility for deliberately cultivating the energy we wish to live in.   In other words, we can allow others to influence our vibration, or we can influence our own.  One choice leaves us at the mercy of world events and other people’s actions and reactions.  The other choice returns us to our power to create the kind of world we desire to live in.

If You’re Always Searching For Something More, You Must Learn to Master Your Energy

It feels downright horrible to not get something you really want.  And that horrible feeling – while uncomfortable – is normal and even healthy!   This is because we’re designed with the power to fulfill every desire that arises within us.  So naturally, not manifesting an important desire leaves us wanting and unfulfilled.  But if we’re always searching for something more, we bind ourselves to a perpetual cycle of discontent.  And in a state of discontent, we simply can’t attract satisfying experiences.  

Here are 3 limiting beliefs that may be keeping you from a satisfying life because you’re always searching for more.  And an energy mastery shift you can instantly apply to break free from these limiting perceptions:  

Limiting belief #1: You’re always searching for something more because you believe there’s some final destination that you must reach.  

Our desires are continually under revision, because each of us is continually redefining what’s important to us.  And as a result, there is no final destination that once we arrive at will satisfy us forevermore.  Once we reach the top, the “mountain” we’re currently climbing becomes a new starting point for what’s next.  From each new vista, the next desire we wish to fulfill comes into view.     

The energy mastery solution for constant striving is to view yourself as an ever-evolving masterpiece.  

Creating a fulfilling life is not like getting a diploma that hangs forever on the wall, unchanged.  Because you are continually growing and expanding, your definitions of fulfillment will change with every phase you grow through.  Simply stated, the more desires we fulfill, the more desires are born within us asking to be fulfilled.  

Even the term “work in progress” is misleading in this context, because it implies a finish line.  A better way to look at it is that each of us is an evolving masterpiece.  And the ink on our paintings will stay wet for as long as we are alive.   

Anytime you find yourself caught in the search for something more, remind yourself that the most exciting part of manifestation is not the “getting.”  It’s the becoming.   Appreciate yourself for how far you’ve come, and for the clarity your life experiences have given you.  Remember, your life is a joyful journey toward greater self-realization and self-mastery, not a finish line to cross.  

Limiting Belief #2:  You’re always searching for something more, because you believe that you have to control the timeline.    

In the same way that life unfolds in predictable seasons, the manifestation of every desire also occurs in seasons or phases.  Once you understand this process, you can relax into the natural timing of things.   

When you observe something you want and feel that initial rush of excitement, you’re being called toward an expanded reality.  The larger, wiser part of you knows what’s possible for you.  It knows what your next stage of evolution will bring.  That’s why you light up when you come into contact with something that triggers your potential.  

The energy mastery solution for relinquishing control is to appreciate everything that triggered the new desire within you.  

Life is the co-existence of opposite forces. It’s only when we become aware of a limitation that we have the opportunity to grow beyond it.  Within the problem itself lies the solution.  And the faster you bless the problem as a necessary part of the solution, the faster you’ll manifest your desired outcome. 

Limiting belief #3:  You’re always searching for something more because you’re overly fixated on the future.  

You begin a journey toward the future the moment you recognize that you want something different than what you currently have.  Like the proverbial carrot dangling from a stick motivates the mule to keep going, desire also inspires our forward progress.   But what most fail to understand is this is much more than a journey toward getting the thing we want.  It’s a journey of becoming.

Our desires are sparks that come forth from your Divine Self.  They are ignited within you for the purpose of expanding you into all that you are capable of being.  Yet too often, in our search for something more or different, we become fixated on the outer prize and lose sight of our inner evolution.   

Believing that we’ll finally be happy once we reach a certain milestone starts the pattern of always searching for more.    We tell ourselves things like, “Once I get a new boyfriend, then I’ll be happy.”  Or, “When I make more money (or have a baby, or lose weight, or have a home near the water…”).  Striving to meet the next external goal sets us on a lifelong journey toward a destination we can never reach.  And this is the trap we place ourselves in by always searching for more.  

The energy mastery solution for fixating too intently on the future is to drop into gratitude for everything that you already are.  

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with setting future goals to measure our progress against.  But we set ourselves up for disappointment when we postpone our happiness until those goals are realized.  Remember that what you’re really seeking from the fulfillment of any desire is an experience of feeling a certain way.  The sensation of bringing ourselves into energetic alignment with our desires is life-giving.  

If you’re always searching for something more and feeling dissatisfied, take this as a cue to drop deeper into gratitude.  Make a list of all you appreciate about yourself, your life, and your own process of evolution as it exists in this moment.   Remind yourself that you were born into a universe that is continually expanding.  And, as an integral part of this infinite universe, you are expanding right along with it.  Actively surrender into the expansion that your desire is calling you toward.  This is the key to more easily realizing your goals, and to soothing yourself along the way to them.

Nurturing the Inner Relationship with Your Desires

 

Most of us relate to our unfulfilled desires as goals looming out in the future that we’re slowly making our way toward.  But when you understand the world of energy, you realize just how inaccurate this paradigm is.  In the realm of energy, past, present and future all co-exist.  And this means that in every moment, there are actually thousands of possible future realities that you could manifest.  And you have a right-now, present-time relationship with each one of your desires.  

The first step to manifesting any desire is to improve your relationship with it.  This is to say, to deliberately flow loving energy toward it, rather than the energy of doubt or angst.  In this way, you strengthen the quality of your relationship with your desire and magnetize it more quickly into your experience. 

Nurturing the inner relationship between you and your desire is like developing any other friendship.

The idea that you have a real-time relationship with your desires may sound strange or esoteric.  But really it’s no different than the relationship you share with the important people in your life.  Which is to say, the more you nurture it with you time and positive attention, the more it thrives.  

Think of someone who’s extremely important to you – your child, for example, or a coworker, friend, or your spouse. What you will discover is that you actually carry a piece of this person’s energy with you wherever you go. Your internal relationship with them exists – whether you’re currently in the same room or thousands of miles apart.  And the reason you have a relationship with this person is due to all of the energy you’ve invested in it. 

You’ve spent time contemplating your relationship with this person even when you’re apart.  You’ve imagined your future together and recalled positive feelings you’ve shared together in the past.  And most of all, you eagerly anticipate all the positive experiences you’ll share with them in the future. And all of this has contributed to the quality of the relationship you now have with this person.  

Now just imagine for a moment that the opposite was true of the connection between you and this person. 

That instead of infusing your connection with this person with positive energy, you regularly thought about them in negative ways.  Instead of looking forward to enjoyable experiences in the future, you doubted whether you’d ever see them again.

How healthy would any relationship be if we routinely fed it with the energy of sadness or doubt?  And yet how often do we pollute the purity of our desires with this same low-level energy? 

Here are three fundamental skills that will support you in nurturing your inner relationship with your desires.  Practicing these just a few minutes each day will raise your vibration from doubt to positive, joyful expectation. 

Step #1 to strengthen your relationship with your desires:  Imagine. 

The first skill is being able to imagine your future desire as a fully formed reality.  You want to imagine it so vividly that you have a full sensory experience of it as already manifested.     

At this stage, allow yourself to dream as big and as freely as you can.   What do you really want to create and experience in each important aspect of your life?  

For now, try to release any preconceived notions of what’s possible and laser in on the purity of your desire.   In other words, give yourself permission to become more of a visionary than a realist. 

To strengthen the inner relationship between you and your desire, allow your imagination to run wild.

  • Do you imagine a future in which you are enjoying extraordinary physical wellbeing and stamina?
  • Do you desire to have easier access to your creativity or a more plentiful stream of great ideas?
  • Are you seeking greater financial prosperity, or to broaden your impact in the world?

Set aside your doubts for the time being and give yourself permission to be a visionary rather than a realist.  A visionary is someone who gives more credence to the power of imagination than the limitations of any present circumstance.  And when you have the courage to be a visionary, new possibilities and resources reveal themselves.  Allow yourself to engage your imagination to the fullest.  

Now that you have a clear vision of the reality you desire, the second part of the process is to “connect” with that vision.   

Step #2 to strengthen your relationship with your desires:  Connect. 

The second step is developing the ability to connect with your desire.  You want to invite its energy into your heart and mind.  The idea here is to feel in your body what it will feel like when your desire comes to fruition.   

Imagining uses the mind and intellect to strengthen your connection to your desire.  Connecting with your desire takes your relationship with it into the powerful realm of sensation and emotion.  

So just intend in this moment to become energetically aligned with the reality of your desire.  Feel your body in its balanced and ideal form.  Breathe into the sensation of clarity and free-flowing creativity.  Conjure the feeling of freedom of choice that comes with unlimited streams of income.  Allow your energy field to resonate in harmony with all that you desire.     

Step #3 to strengthen your relationship with your desires:  Expect

The third and final step is to expect that the reality you desire to create is already in the process of unfolding.  Cultivating a positive expectation is part believing and part focus.  First you need to believe that what you want is possible and that you are deserving of having it.  The second aspect is engaging your power of focus to scan for evidence of things moving in the right direction. 

To begin to cultivate a more positive expectation about your desire, keep a notebook of positive aspects. 

Make note of everything that is lining up in your favor, and of all the actions you’re taking that support your desire.  Reading this list daily will calibrate you in the direction of the success you seek. 

Remember that you are engaged in an intimate relationship with all that you desire.  And in order for any relationship to grow, it must be fed and nourished. The way you nourish your relationship with your desire is through your loving attention, imagination, and energy. Rather than giving in to doubt or insecurity, allow yourself to imagine, to connect, and to expect great things.
