Alignment First. Action Second.

Often, what seems like our worst experience is what puts us in alignment with our heart's path.

We all have a built-in guidance system. Our gut feelings indicate whether something is in alignment with our true being or not.

Such was the case when, despite my inner gut guidance, I moved to a small town in New England. I had compromised who I was and ended up getting sick.

For close to a year nothing I tried, worked.

Nothing I planned, succeeded.

Nothing I really wanted, happened.

I gave everything I could but found obstacles at every turn.

I now know that I was simply out of alignment. With my vision and values, but mostly with who I am.

I also now know that in order to live a life of bliss and unleash greater possibilities, I better act in ways that are in alignment with who I am at my deepest core.

What if we all did that?
If we all focused on our alignment FIRST before taking action - In all of our relationships, in our work, in every aspect of our life.

Oh how different the world would look...
