alignment

 

my car is pulling to the left….

my body is twisting to the right

my ‘job’ drains me

this relationship is tiring

my body feels heavy

my head is full

i’m freaking out.

 

alignment.

our cars need it

our bodies need it

our relationships need it

and

most of all

WE NEED IT.

 

alignment.

we hear it

tho

do we know what it really means

and

do we know how to get there?

 

a healthy foundation starts with alignment.

can the building withstand an earthquake?

can WE withstand the pulse of life

and

all that comes our way?

are we good surfers?

 

are we aligned?

 

what is alignment

and

how do we embody it?

 

when you look at the definition of alignment

you will find lots of

straight line this and that.

alignment does not always

form a straight line.

sometimes it is curvy

messy

playful

free.

 

our outer mis-alignments

stem from the inner.

to be truly Aligned

is freaking awesome.

to be truly Aligned

in my inner dictionary means:

To be plugged IN to Self. Always. Making choices that feel good and support growth and forward movement. 

‘her life flows with grace because she understands the true meaning of inner alignment.’

 

Alignment.

 

how many times do you do something

that doesn’t feel good?

how often do you allow your

guilt. obligations. fear.

control your actions?

 

this is NOT alignment.

 

how often do you listen

<truly listen>

to what your heart says?

and

take action from that place?

 

hello alignment!

and tho

it may rock the boat

or

feel like it WILL rock the boat

you do it anyway.

<go you!>

 

alignment takes practice.

alignment IS the practice.

the practice of checking in

listening

then

taking action.

 

Alignment.

are you aligned?

do you feel good everywhere in your life?

what feels OUT?

like that vertebrae that shifts

and causes

you to go down.

ouch.

or

that knee

<the one you call your ‘bad’ knee>

hey,

if you call something bad

it can’t help but continue to be.

after all

that’s what you expect.

 

you know

that physical ‘thing’

that shifts to the uncomfy position

and

requires you to point most of your attention to it.

 

yep

mis-alignment

demands our attention.

why?

it is seeking re-alignment.

 

the road is smoother

when your car is aligned

you can let go of the wheel

and not

veer off the road.

 

alignment

be IN it

and

you can let go of your need to control your path

and instead

allow it to unfold

trusting

allowing

aligned with who you really are

and

what your heart is truly saying.

 

alignment.

do you want it?

or

are you addicted to hard-ness

to struggle

stress and effort?

do you like making things difficult for yourself?

 

i used to have this addiction.

and

an addiction it is.

i’ve since realized

that it’s a hell of a lot nicer

to Be Aligned.

my body feels better

my mind feels better

and

my heart can sing

without someone telling it to shut up.

 

alignment.

seek it.

Be it.

go!

 

alignment. i do it. you do it. hey! even the planets do it.

alignment. i do it. you do it. hey! even the planets do it.
