I sometimes say this phrase when describing myself.  I don’t wear make-up (yet).  I don’t color my hair (yet!).  And, I’m usually pretty open about who I am and just how many personal flaws I can find in a day (a lot!).  But, maybe I should switch it around a bit.  Perhaps it should read, “What you get is what you align yourself with.”  In other words, it seems to me that the law of attraction and positive energy is not about what you get – it’s about aligning who you are with who you want to be.

I listened to a talk recently where the topic was the Energy of Attraction.  It was about us attracting what we put out there.  If we put out anger (another word for fear), we will get it back.  If we put out love or joy, we will get that back.  Like attracts like.  If you don’t like the energy you have out there right now – change it. When you change your energy, you change  your interactions and you change your path.

I’ve talked often about negative people I’ve had in my life.  And as I watched them move about their lives, I was constantly amazed at how much s*** happened to them.  I was also amazed at how angry and even more negative they would become about the “people” or “things” that were doing them wrong.  S*** happens to me too.  And sometimes it’s bad.  But I come at it a different way (not better or worse, just different).  I prefer to ask myself if I’ve attracted that energy at that moment and how am I going to change it to the positive?  My former SO used to tell me that my glasses were too rosy.  I don’t think so.  I like my glasses and I’m going to keep them for as long as I can!

Think about this: if you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?  And if it’s something you can’t change, then let it go.  Accept it and move to something else.  If it’s something you can change – put the energy toward it and watch what comes back.

I guess we have to be willing to align who we know we are with what we do in life.  We have to admit to f***ing up at times.  But our inner intention will always lead to an outward result.  And, let’s be honest: the inner and outer are inevitably connected.

Friends, if we choose inner happiness over suffering, we’ll make peace with the suffering.  And I think we’ll find the ability to get through life just a little bit easier.

Have an amazing day!
