Aligning Your Thoughts

ShaheenTNOStarAre you feeling stifled? Unable to move forward with goals, plans, and dreams? Take some time for stillness! 

When you put your focus on things that you cannot control, you begin to deplete your energy. This creates a cycle of pulling toward you, and manifesting exactly what you DON’T want! Your thoughts are a powerful magnet, pulling into your life whatever you choose to focus on!

Take note throughout your day of the quality of your thoughts. Track where your mind goes. What are you focusing on? What are you giving your energy to? What mental dialogue are you having with yourself? Write down your thoughts, evaluate them, and ask yourself if they are in alignment with the things you wish to manifest! 

How often do you have an opposing thought toward exactly what you are WANTING in your life? 

Begin with this list and start to become more mindful of the things that you tell yourself and put your mental energy into. Train yourself to think more positive and affirming thoughts. Whenever you have a negative thought, catch it, imagine a big red line crossing it out, and replace it with a positive thought.

Keeping Composure

We shift and create our own reality, telling our energetic story based on our thoughts, ideas, beliefs and fears. Sometimes we can’t always change the immediate situation. When it is particularly difficult, I remind myself that I am in control of my reaction to that experience.

I find that this bit of wisdom is most needed when we are in the middle of a change. We constantly ask the Universe for something new, whether it is in the area of love, money, health, family or spirituality… but when the change begins we start to feel as if we are falling a part. Chaos is the metaphorical goddess of change; bring with her the seed of something new.

There is no change without uncertainty. Remind yourself that manifesting and change go hand in hand, and that change by nature isn’t static. Learn to dance with change. Take Chaos by the hand and treat her to a slow dance or something a little more wild.

I want you to repeat daily:

“My life is shifting, growing and moving in the direction of my highest good. My mind and heart are open to the dance of change.”

7 Ways to Make Time for Stillness

Tapping into your intuition and following your psychic nudges begins with stillness! As we are creating sacred space in our lives it becomes more and more important to stop and listen… listen to the voice inside of your, the dialogue running through your head, and the worn-out thoughts, beliefs and ideas you are replaying.

Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed, even frustrated by the amount of things running through your head? I know I experience this feeling of exhaustion from time to time… sometimes it’s brought on with good intentions. I am sitting there just channeling some sort of creative idea or inspiration and then I keel over in defeat because the amount of energy it takes to think about it all is so overwhelming… and then I remember… stillness!

You will never really hear all the beautiful things your spirit is trying to tell you until you stop and listen!

So many of us want answers about our lives. We are wondering what’s next. Where we are going. How life is going to be. How we are going to solve our problems. Fix our mistakes. Right our wrongs. Or achieve our dreams.

You know you’ve been asking the Universe these big questions. Talk, talk, talk… now listen!

The Universe can never solve your problems if you don’t shut up and listen!

Sometimes the answers are subtle; sometimes they are loud and clear. Sometimes they will be spelled out for you. You may get hit with a sudden feeling of inspiration. You may hear a song, or a phrase that just hits the spot.

These things come when you make space for them.

A few ways you can do this:

  1. Spend a few minutes daily in meditation. This can be done before you begin your day, or just when you end it.
  1. Prayer is often us asking for guidance, but the heart of prayer… the real secret is to stop and listen. What feelings do you get. What vibration is firing through you as you are communicating with the Divine?
  1. It’s all about staying in motion. Feel yourself move, feel your body. Get out of your head and. Let your mind, body and spirit connect through exercise, yoga or even a long walk. I love doing yoga because I have to be present when I am in a pose. I have to listen to my body and my breath. Usually the places where you hold tension in you body give you insight into where you are being rigid in your life. 
  1. Enjoy a warm cup of tea. Let yourself smell all the lovely aromas, and feel the steam open up your head. Take a sip and swirl the liquid around your tongue. Actually taste the tea (or whatever you’re drinking). This will allow you to be present, to observe whatever is happening in that moment. And it’s so soothing!
  1. Take a nice long bath and let the tension of your day melt from your body. Don’t rush or worry. You are in this moment relaxing. Let the steam and the bubbles and all the delicious scents clear your head and heart. Sing and smile and close your eyes. Some of the best revelations come in a warm bath.
  1. Spend more times with your pets. These spirit babies are gifts from the Universe sent here to add unconditional love and understanding to your life. They help to transmute negative energy and turn into in to positive and productive energy. When you connect with the pure feelings of love you link into your intuitive self.
  1. Take time to listen to good, uplifting music. Let the word and sounds enter you. Sing along or just close your eyes and drift away. Music isn’t meant to be background noise. It’s meant to be a doorway to another world where you can feel and experience something inside of your, or something more expansive than you. Open up and let go for a while.

As you move through the levels of stillness you are creating internal sacred space. Giving yourself this space allows you to tap into all of your wisdom. This is really the heart of spirituality. Finding center and learning to live from that place is the most pure intention.

The Magic of Memories

Memories are some of our most treasured possessions. We hold them close to our hearts. Some of us get caught in memories, others hide from memories and there are those who have lost memories. Regardless, memories are crystals that hold spiritual power… they are able to conjure up the past in seconds.

What have you been nostalgic about lately? Has it been a place from you past, a feeling you remember from long ago or someone whom you haven’t seen for years? There may be a message in all of this. 

Memories are vehicles of change. As the old saying goes, “the past repeats itself.”  If a painful time from your past has been on your mind, ask yourself what you may learn from the experience still. Is there a glimmer of good in the darkness? On the other hand you may be visited by brighter times from your past, wondering about old friends or lovers… the good times will cycle back around!

Its true can never get back to that exact time or place again, but you can always pull that feeling close to you and be with it for a moment. But really there is no such thing as time, in our hearts and minds time doesn’t exist. It’s only our perception of it.

So here is to remembering. Allow yourself to be nostalgic. Just be with it for awhile. Follow your memories and see where they lead. You’ll be surprised at how magical your present memories can be!
