How's Your Alignment? Claudette Rowley Copyright 2003
"Your sense of boredom, contraction, or resentment is your soul's way of letting you know that you are settling for less."
- Alan Cohen
I love going to see my chiropractor for spinal adjustments. After each visit, I notice that I walk more easily. With my spine properly aligned, it takes far less energy for me to move with ease and comfort. Sometimes I don't even realize how out of alignment I am until after adjustment.
When your life is in alignment with who you are and what you want, it feels much like sensation you have when your spine is aligned. As your life synchronizes with what you want, energy flows toward those desires, opportunities open up and life and work require less effort. Mental and emotional alignment is just as efficient as physical alignment.
During a recent coaching session, a client (she's an enterpreneur, coach and author) expressed that she had a case of "blahs" professionally and wasn't sure why. After digging beneath surface, she discovered her desire to shift most of her focus to book she's writing. She also wanted enough income from her coaching practice to support herself and her writing. In order to support this desire, she decided to coach only two days per week and rescheduled her clients accordingly.
Once she refocused her time and energy in a way that was aligned with what she wanted, other unexpected opportunities dropped in her lap. For example, she was asked to submit an article to an e-newsletter with one million subscribers. Overnight, hits on her website multiplied many times over, she had new coaching clients and several potential clients in wings. These clients were ones she needed to fulfill her second desire: coaching income that supports her writing.
