How many things do you do on a regular basis that you “dread” doing? How many “obligations” do you have? How many “chores?” If the answer is “a lot,” then you will benefit greatly by learning how to get in alignment. (No chiropractor necessary!)
Did you know that natural law requires that your body, mind, and spirit be united in thought, word, and action in order for the process of creation to work? What kind of life experience do you want to create? One filled with dreaded chores or one full of happy tasks? If you will take the time to get in alignment with even your simplest or most dreaded responsibilities, your entire life will flow more smoothly and you’ll experience greater peace and happiness.
I recently had an experience where I turned my entire outlook and day around by getting in alignment with one of my most-dreaded obligations. Typically, when asked to perform this task, I moan and groan and think about all the things I’d rather be doing than this particular duty.
During my morning Self MEI (Motivation, Education, and Inspiration) time, I decided that since I have to do this, there is no one else who can do this for me, I might as well get in alignment with it and enjoy the day. (It was an all-day job.) So I began to focus on all the things I appreciate about the other person involved. (My mother.) Like how much she sacrificed for me when I was growing up, all the nice things she continues to do for me, etc. I began feeling much better. Then I decided to focus on how lucky I am that I can do this, like, not being tied down by a “regular” job where someone else dictates my schedule, etc. Before long, and I’m talking about maybe 5 minutes at the most, I was feeling good about my day and ready to get started.
The result? A wonderful day with my mother, despite the circumstances. (Doctor’s appointment.)
Today my challenge to you is to get in alignment with all those things you say you don’t want to do. If you’re doing them, there has to be a reason, right? Otherwise, you wouldn’t do them. If there is something about your job you don’t like, perhaps you could focus on the positive aspects of your job that you do like. Sometimes, if it weren’t for those not-so-pleasant chores, we might not appreciate the good stuff.
