What You Focus on Expands
What is alignment and why is it important? Most of us know about alignment for our car. Car alignment keeps you from veering into another lane. Alignment, mathematical alignment in this case, is also important in construction and engineering to ensure structural alignment with safety. However, this is not the kind of alignment we are talking about this month.
Alignment that Creates Awareness, an awareness that shapes our world is Conscious and Shifting. Alignment that Creates Awareness is about being willing to look at something differently in order to have it be what you choose. Alignment that Creates Awareness is about being focused and clear about what you would like to experience in your world.
Now you’re asking what does that mean? It means we all need to be very clear about what we are aligning with. That we have the ability to have life be exactly as we choose if we are willing to focus our thoughts, words, and actions.
Here is an example of what I mean. Have you ever noticed how there is a never-ending stream of organizations with fundraisers that are fighting against or focusing on the disease or issue they are trying to cure or eradicate?
Take the fight against cancer; there are so many I can’t even list them. Walking for a cause to fight AIDS, more fighting. The war on drugs that started in the 80s and is still going strong. These are just a few but I’m certain you could find a few hundred more if you feel compelled to do so.
The point is that they are all about pushing against rather than focusing on what could be. They are all aligned with the problem rather than the solution. Did you catch that? This alignment is with the problem and not the solution.
I know many of you are thinking I’m not being fair because many of the above mentioned activities are raising money for the cure or focusing on a problem. And I will say it again. This alignment is with the problem and not the solution.
Focusing on the problem will only bring more of the same because focus is the first step in alignment. Which means when you focus against you are literally asking for more of the same. So, stop and start again by asking yourself a better question. Ask yourself what could be, instead of what needs to be different. Make it a habit to ask yourself “What if?” on a regular basis.
What if we had a walk for health? What if we raised millions for peaceful co-existence? What if we focused our attention on what could be instead of what is? What if we aligned ourselves so deeply with our inner being that we became aware of our life, our reason for being, and our connection with everything? Wouldn’t that Alignment Create some Awareness?
Welcome down the rabbit hole of possibility…
