I’m grateful that when I align my intentions with my feelings—I create my reality. This is exactly where God has been leading me for the last couple weeks. I keep being reminded of this over and over. I spoke at and attended a conference about it, then I started reading the science behind it in Breaking the Habit of Being yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One by Dr. Joe Dispenza. I’ve seen how this has worked in my life over and over from relationships to careers to dream road trips. I’m so grateful how this works. The last few days I’ve been leading up to this one, because we first have to recognize our stories (#88) and if they are aligning us with fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. Then, once we get clear view of all of that we can start looking at how we are setting intentions (#91) consciously or unconsciously. Lastly, our feelings (#92) need to align with the reality we want. That’s the whole purpose of why I keep up with this work.
Today, I commit to aligning my intentions with my feelings. Some people stop at thinking positively, and they can’t figure out why things aren’t happening. Some will focus on aligning their feelings, but forget to set intentions for what they actually want to be creating. The beauty and the magic happens when these two things connect. If people are wondering why I use letters in my book and in all my coaching work, it’s because it’s the best way I’ve found to connect the two. When I’m writing a letter to God, a friend, or a loved one, I emotionally connect to the words I’m writing. I don’t send them, but I imagine myself telling people all about my dreams, goals, and purpose I see for myself.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my lists too, but when I really want to get myself aligned to create the reality I want, I write letters. I save my lists for my daily practice of gratitude and prayers. This doesn’t mean that they won’t work for you. I know plenty of people who can get their feelings completely engaged while writing lists. We have to find the practices that work for us as individuals. Some people may use index card and mirrors. What is important is that if you try a method that doesn’t work, try something else.
