When I align something in my life what do I do to bring about that alignment? How do I identify the things that are in alignment with me? How has aligning things in my life affected my relationships?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with align at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From the list pick one word that stands out the most. Next write about why this word stands out the most and how it relates to what you’ve done to align your life in a certain way. If you can, use the words from your list to write about this.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings when you align something in your life. As you do this try not to think of any specific event, but just the emotions that arise from you knowing you are aligning things in your life according to what you feel from within. Notice how these feelings flow throughout you and if they concentrate in any specific area or if they are evenly distributed throughout. When you’re ready, think of the first time you took action to help something happen that you knew for certain was and is in alignment with you. Take note of the differences and similarities between what you feel now and what you were feeling at first.
