An aligned life: The importance of truth

Alignment and truth. These two words hold a wealth of meaning, are both inextricably linked to one another, and provide a guiding light when it comes to living a completely fulfilling and whole life.

Although I’m sure you’re already aware of their standard dictionary meaning. Today I wanted to talk to you about their meaning in the context of energy and spiritual growth.

Let’s begin with truth…

Truth relates to the essence of who you really are.

It is your highest potential as a soul and is the most pure form of expression possible in this Universe. Your expression of truth travels beyond time and space, and is continuous throughout every lifetime, including the one you are currently living.

Truth is the highest possible vibrational state. When we exist from a place of truth, we vibrate at the frequency of peace, joy and unconditional love.

When we are born into this world we are born perfect, balanced and whole. At the time of our birth, as new souls of the world, we are already aware of our own divinity and perfection. Yet through the process of life we are led to believe that we are anything but perfect.

This is where alignment comes in.

As we travel through the experiences that make us feel incomplete and unworthy, our centre of balance and wholeness is pushed out of whack.

I like to imagine energetic alignment physically through the body. Most notably down the middle of the spine, running in accordance with the body’s chakra system. A pillar of stability and strength, that grounds who we are into our experience.

Every time we experience something that knocks us out of alignment, our energy literally gets thrown outside of our energy field and our power is placed in the external world. We start the unconscious process of chipping away and removing pieces from our internal pillar of strength.

The more frequently this happens, the more unbalanced we become. As this occurs our level of spiritual disconnection increases, and the seeds of unhappiness are sewn.

Moving out of alignment is not a pleasant state being. This unpleasantness comes from the process of moving further and further away from the essence of who we really are. We experience the pain of disconnection from ourselves, as well as the disharmony this imbalance brings to our lives.

The blessing in all of this is that when it comes to alignment, the pendulum swings both ways. Every moment we are presented with the opportunity to choose how we live.

We alone decide whether our actions, thoughts and feelings honestly reflect our soul’s truth.

When we have gained momentum in one direction, changing directions suddenly can feel impossible. And although this definitely isn’t impossible when the desire is great enough, it can often be easier taking baby steps in the other direction. In doing so, slowly stepping back into a state of alignment, gathering momentum in the direction of truth.

Aligning with truth requires you to be deeply honest with yourself. You need to get real about where you are out of alignment and everything that is no longer serving your highest good. This can be an incredibly confronting process at times and requires persistence, strength, courage and support.

Honesty starts with establishing the connection back to your truth, by opening to inner wisdom and allowing the contents of your heart to make itself known to you. You can begin this process by asking yourself the following questions:

What actions feel true to me?
Where in my life am I out of alignment with my needs?
What is one thing I could do today that would move me in the direction of truth?

If you’re ready to dive even deeper into the process of realigning with your truth, I’d love to hear from you!

Through private 1:1 mentoring sessions I support women through the process of energetic realignment, self-exploration and spiritual practice, guiding them home to a place of harmony within their body, energy and life.

I believe aligning with your own truth is one of - if not the most - important spiritual journeys you will embark on in a lifetime. However just because it's important does not mean it has to difficult or complicated. Although this process can be challenging at times, there is also a beautiful simplicity present in releasing the illusions surrounding truth by fully embodying all that you are.

Non-truth melts away, and what remains is free to shine bolder and brighter than ever before.

In love, light and magic,
