What time does the doubt start for you?
Most days you wake up ready to take on the world. You’re well rested. You’re nourished by healthy nutrition. Perhaps you even gave yourself an endorphin boost through some exercise, and you’re riding that post–workout bliss.
Yet, as you go into your day, you somehow lose track. Your energy slumps. You start feeling ornery… You allow your circumstances to dictate your thoughts. Your mind tricks you into believing rubbish again.
In short, you start doubting… Confidence makes way for doubt.
At this moment, you risk losing your positive momentum. If you let it slide, you’ll start feeling contracted, nervous and anxious. While you should be feeling passionate and acting with eagerness, you start entertaining thoughts about an unhealthy dinner, a glass of wine, or watching some mind–numbing television series.
Regardless of when the doubt normally starts for you, if you act quickly and decisively at the very first sign of negativity, you can save the rest of your day, retain or even boost your progress, and finish on a high!
The Minimalist Guide to Aligned Action
I’m a great believer in alignment… I believe we need to focus on thoughts that are in alignment with Divine Truth.
Your Non–Physical Source has a certain perspective, a certain focus about your life, your potential and where you’re headed. This is what I’m referring to when I write Divine Truth. (Feel free to replace the word Source with whatever makes the most sense to you, be it Soul / God / Spirit / Higher Self / Inner Being…).
If you’re constantly focusing on thoughts that are in alignment with your Divine Truth, you’ll feel positive emotions as evidence of this alignment — feelings like eagerness, excitement, bliss, and love.
Obviously, the result of all this is aligned action. Aligned action is action taken from a place of excitement, eagerness, and passion. And aligned action is the key that makes the magic happen!
But to get to aligned action, we need to manage our thoughts.
When you first start seeing the evidence of negative emotion in your day, know that your focus has gone astray. Take charge and shift your focus to empowering thoughts to get back into alignment.
Below you’ll find some blissful truths ideal for you to focus on. A regular focus on these will yield almost immediate improvements in the way you feel… And aligned action will come as a result.
1. There’s No Need to Pray for Things You Don’t Want
“Worrying is praying for stuff you don’t want.” — Jen Sincero
You never need to worry. In fact, do everything you can to avoid worrying. It’s really up to you. I think many people hear this, but their lives are still riddled with worrying and anxiety.
The next time you feel worry setting in, give yourself a pep talk. Say the following: “Worrying paralyzes me. It takes me further away from my full potential. It keeps me from everything I want. So, I refuse to feel worried! I choose faith. Faith in myself and in this marvelously benevolent Universe. All is well. All will be well!”
Even in the face of the worst imaginable outcome, worrying won’t help you one little bit.
2. Nothing Can Ever Go Wrong
“Your journey matters, and you can’t go wrong because everything and anything you choose to do or experience will add to the expansion of creation in a new way. You are the cutting edge. You are consciousness exploring more of its infinite potential. You are where God wants to be.” — Bentinho Massaro
If you were operating from your truest Identity, you would know that all is well. All has always been well. And all will end well.
You are a beautiful expression of the Energy behind all creation. And you are exactly where you need to be. Reminding yourself of this regularly will make you feel freedom and empowerment.
3. You Have an Easy–to–Use Superpower
“Appreciation is the magic formula you’ve been seeking.” — Esther Hicks
Sitting still even for a few moments and mentally listing things you appreciate is like using your very own superpower. Thoughts of appreciation are in very close alignment with your Source. Appreciation is an incredibly simple, proven shortcut to mental and emotional alignment.
After just a few minutes of appreciation, you’ll quite literally feel your whole body buzzing with appreciation — from alignment with your Source. No thought spent on appreciation is ever wasted. And every time you’re appreciating, you’re moving closer to everything you’ve ever wanted.
4. There’s a Very Important Audience Cheering You On
“Being in union with the energy of the Universe is like an awesome dance where you trust your partner so much that you just surrender to the beat of the music. When you begin to dance with the energy of the Universe, your life flows naturally, incredible synchronicity presents itself, creative solutions abound, and you experience freedom.” — Gabrielle Bernstein
At times you might think that you’re separate or alone in this life. But that’s not the case. Your Source is watching you with keen interest.
Your Source knows what you’re capable of, knows that you can achieve everything you’re trying to achieve, and is dearly hoping that you will actually achieve it. Of course, there is no guarantee. Your Source supports you all the way, but won’t hand you your dream life and ultimate potential on a plate… Where’s the fun in that? So realize that you have the support of All–That–Ever–Matters, so breathe, trust, and dance your heart out!
5. You Deserve the Very Best in Life
“Sometimes you have to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.” — Unknown, via Tiny Buddha
You’re loved and valuable. You’re bountiful! You’re on this planet to richly experience life. You’re here to bathe in all the marvelous experiences this journey offers, and to fully enjoy every moment!
There’s no reason for you to not experience the very best this life–experience has to offer! Stop cutting yourself off from Goodness with thoughts to the contrary.
6. Anything You Can Desire, You Can Achieve
“If you have the ability to imagine it, or even to think about it, this Universe has the ability and the resources to deliver it fully unto you, for this Universe is like a well–stocked kitchen with every ingredient imaginable at your disposal.” — Esther Hicks
“The only real limitation on your abilities is the level of your desires. If you want it badly enough, there are no limits on what you can achieve.” — Brian Tracy
You’re very powerful. They’re not lying: You can truly be, do or have whatever you want. No matter how large or out of reach your dreams seem… They wouldn’t be your dreams if they were not possible.
Think the right thoughts, and confirm that you’re thinking the right thoughts by feeling emotions that feel good and confirm your positive alignment. Then all that remains is to take passionate action that makes you feel excitement and bliss, and you’re well on your way.
7. There’s a Critical Calling on Your Life
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the Universe to unfold. That is how important you are!” — Eckhart Tolle
The highest expressions of life force are Love and Light. And you’re called to bring this world more of both. While this may not necessarily make you feel important, it’s a very important calling.
If every person in this world took this Universal calling of bringing more Love and Light seriously, starting tomorrow, can you imagine how unrecognizably different our world will look in as little as a month from today?! So, remember how important you are… Take your calling seriously! Your life matters.
8. Your Guide is With You… Always
“If you wish to know through experience what your soul wants you to know, listen to your intuition. It’s the navigation system your soul has installed. Meditate, get still, and reconnect with the part of you that is already everything you could hope to be.” — Steven Aitchison
You have access to Infinite Intelligence all day long, every day. Quiet your mind. Listen to your intuition. And you’ll receive guidance directly from your Soul — directly from your Source. Isn’t this a comforting thought?
And here you were, all stressed out, thinking that you’re alone in all this. Tsk tsk… Maybe it is time to cut that out?
9. True Peace is Only Ever a Breath Away
“Just breathe. You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find a solution to your problems, and capable enough to do whatever needs to be done.” — Lori Deschene
Regardless of what life throws at you, you can always reconnect with the peace of your Source simply by breathing. If all your attempts at good–feeling thoughts fail, just give it up… and breathe. Breathe, and every time a thought tries to distract your awareness, gently return your focus to your breath. You will feel “the peace of God, which passes all understanding” in a few short moments.
Also, consider taking a nap. There’s nothing wrong with a good nap in an attempt to cure a bad mood. When you wake up you’ll be ready to fire on all cylinders again.
10. You’re NOT a Victim
“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all–powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a T–shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” — Anthon St. Maarten
You’re doing this. All around you. Everything you see. You’re creating it. You have never received anything. You’re creating your own reality. All of it.
Really feel into this. You’re not walking around in a strange Universe where things — good or bad — happen to you. You’re not creating a life inside a large Universal Playground. No, you are the Creator of the Universe. You’re Infinitely Powerful. Know this. Feel this. Act accordingly.
11. Your Only Priority is to Have Fun
“Wise One of the Light, you are here not to fear, or to concern or trouble yourself. You are here to express the love and the beauty that you are. Each and every moment is a joyful opportunity for you. Each and every moment is an opportunity to express You, anew.” — Elizabeth Peru
One way to ensure that you are on the right track is to ensure that you’re having fun. That you’re feeling the love, joy, and appreciation that aligned thinking and living will cause inside you.
And the way this works is, if you choose to do the thing that brings you the most bliss in this moment, you ensure you are on the right track. In addition, you activate the next option for even higher bliss in the next moment. So, choose the task that makes you feel the bliss. And have fun!
Conclusion: Make it Rain, Baby!
“If you commit to your intentions by taking aligned action, you will likely end up where you want to go.” — Christie Inge
So many people mistakenly think that action is not an important part of the process of manifestation. They hear about the prime importance of your focus and therefore disregard action.
However, decisive and aligned action is a great part of the process of manifestation. Yes, it comes as a result of your focus and your positive, creative thought. But that doesn’t mean that no action is necessary to bring about your ultimate potential and your dream life.
Every major desire that I’ve manifested involved decisive, aligned action.
And I expect it will be no different for you.
So, next time you find yourself in an emotional slump due to an unhealthy mental focus, revisit this list. Shift your focus to these blissful truths, and feel your vibration rise.
But don’t stop there… Channel every ounce of positive energy into aligned action. Do those things that fuel your excitement, eagerness, and passion.
Work towards your ultimate potential. Chase your dreams!
You’re an incredibly powerful Creator. You can be, do or have whatever you want. Never forget this. You are the Rainmaker.
