It was one of those days. I was tired and fatigued from…life.
I sat in meditation and felt into the fatigue. In my mind, I heard “deep tired”.
I needed rest. The day before I was guided to go out on this day, but I
couldn’t do it. I needed to honor my need for rest.
I didn’t want to follow guidance and go on a mission. So, I
didn’t. Instead, I told spirit that I was tired and that I needed to take care
of my body. I set the intention of having a quiet day and I honored my body’s
need for rest.
I didn’t expect the synchronicity that happened next. I received
the number, 917. It was 9:17 am. My intuition confirmed it. For me, that number means “complete
alignment.” Spirit was telling me that by making that choice to refuse the
mission and focus on rest, I was in complete and total alignment. I had refused
a mission and found alignment. I didn’t know it worked that way.
I understand now that “alignment” means that I am energetically aligned
with my soul intention and my purpose. I am making the choices that are right
for me. That can mean different things on different days. It’s not always about
going out on the missions or doing as asked. Sometimes it means knowing what I
need in that moment and choosing me first.
No doubt, alignment will look different for each of us. We each
have different paths and purposes. We are each in different places on our paths
and purposes. No two paths are the same and no two experiences are the same. And alignment may not look like what we expect it to look like.
For me, "alignment" means that I’m feeling all emotions, doing inner work, taking
great care of myself, and honoring my own needs. It sounds so simple, but this
represents growth for me. Prior to my awakening, I was grinding, struggling,
stressing. So, honoring my needs is alignment for me. It is part of my path. I’ve
Through this experience I learned that being in alignment
doesn’t mean we’re blissfully happy every day. It means that we are acting in
our best interests. It means that we are acting according to our soul and
spirit. It means that we are making choices based on what we need body, mind,
heart, and soul.
What does alignment look like for you?
