Alignment is everything. It’s knowing when someone needs a hug and it’s knowing exactly what to say, even in the toughest of human moments. It’s having the best timing and the sly punch line. It’s pure heart wide-open perfection. It’s unconditional love and everlasting joy; pure magic in every waking moment.
How do you get there? One day, one moment, one thought, one nap, one meditation, one desire, one mistake, one laugh, one puppy; one step at a time.
How do I know when I’m there? You’ll be happy. You won’t take yourself too seriously. You won’t sweat the small stuff. You’ll laugh out loud at the funny voice in your head. You’ll ask a question and receive the answer straight away. You’ll know things without explanation. You’ll understand without having to bring someone over to your perspective. You’ll love and appreciate with reckless abandon and you won’t notice anything other than the beauty inherent in all things. You’ll attend the buffet of life, take only what you desire and ignore the rest. You’ll live in the now. You’ll be the light in the room.
How I finally surrendered:
One day last week I woke up from sleep with the knowing to cancel my plans for the day/night. I decided then and there that I was going to surrender to this thought; to surrender to my inner being forevermore. The time had come to listen to that little voice in my head. That voice has always been there, but I’ve often ignored it, countering its optimism with belittling thoughts. I don’t know why I didn’t think I was good enough to follow through with all of the wonderful ideas that flowed through me, but in that moment I knew I had to be free. I couldn’t deny it any more.
Each morning when I wake up, I reaffirm the desire to give up any resistance to my inner being’s calls. I affirm to do my best to listen and follow through with this incredible gift of guidance. I will lay in bed and meditate until I feel the solid connection between the physical me and the non-physical me. Essentially, I feel for the love that I know is shining down on me. My heart chakra glows outward to the point of pure ecstatic bliss. I can feel my root chakra, sacral, and solar plexus chakras activated and burning bright as well. My throat, third eye, and crown are clear. And then I go through my day as “Source as Amy,” talking to that little voice in my head throughout the day that is so excited to play with me.
There is nothing quite like living your life while fully allowing Source energy to pour through you. I have the best moments ever. Each moment is new and exciting. Each moment is my favourite. Because, even though so many moments are precious and exciting, even looking back to enjoy their deliciousness isn’t as good as feeling fully alive in the present moment.
For the past 2 weeks I have fully allowed myself to let go of the old and to embrace the new. I have met so many new friends. So many of them I had met before, but this time I was ready to let them into my heart. Just yesterday I had the most delicious moment with an older gentleman. He parked his walker beside me and I jumped up to hold the door open for him. “It’s already snowing in Regina,” he said. “Thank you so much. I will make sure I avoid it today.” “Good.” He said. Perfect moment. So much love and fun flowing between us.
The most perfect people flow into my experience, and those who aren’t a vibrational match simply flow by. I fully embrace the knowing that I am pure positive love energy. I don’t trip over my words anymore and can say exactly what I want to say when I wanted to say it. While in France, I spoke perfect French! I tapped into everything I had always been and my mind and words were able to flow with ease. A few days ago I even sang “Here, There, and Everywhere” while walking down the streets of Lido di Venezia without a care in the world. The disconnected me would have been shy and scared to have people listen to me.
One day after meditation, I floated down the stairs and ran smack into Esther. I thanked her for everything she does and she said something like “It’s fun to have fun, isn’t it?” I said, “If I told you about all the fun we’re having I’d be here all day. So I just want to say thank you.” I realized then that she was holding my hands. Such a beautiful experience! What a wonderful memory I will have forever. And it is with excitement that I eagerly anticipate another rendez-vous!
The day I cancelled all of my plans I ended up having a wonderful day walking through Napoli with a new dear friend. We had the best pizza I’ve ever tasted, the best coffee in the cutest alleyway off the beaten path, and afterward went to a beautiful sail away party at sunset. That party led to an incredible dinner and connections I will have for life. The dinner led to a day on a Yacht sailing around Malta the next day and even more love and appreciation for the souls I was coming to know; to remember.
And from there life just keeps getting better and better. My heart is full. The work I have done is radiating out for all to see and for all of my mirrors made of flesh to return to me. My kids are radiating and my partner and I have a greater understanding of what we mean to one another. I love knowing that everything is always working out for me and in the best interest of everyone involved. Life is too precious to spend unhappy and happiness is my greatest goal in life.
Most of all I love how my intentions, no matter how small, played out seamlessly. Like a thought to save someone in particular a seat one day that didn’t work out, worked out the next day without me even trying. I found myself with a front row seat to gift to the most amazing woman ever, just as I had intended.
I especially love the moments of inspiration that don’t make any sense. Everything makes sense in the end! I love that I can continually see the evidence of my alignment, or lack thereof, and that I am able to change my thoughts or my state by simply choosing another thought. If I find myself in a place that I can’t get back from, I just go to bed and start again the next day with meditation and appreciation and the desire to listen to that little voice in my head. Alignment is everything.
