It’s time to bust the myth of work-life balance and align to access your state of Flow. This is the year when you must stop trying to give equal time to these two different areas in your life, because it doesn’t really work, does it?
Your alignment of purpose, vision, values, mindset, thoughts, feelings, actions and contributions are more important in your decision-making and manifesting processes. When aligned, you experience what those in sports understand as Flow. The concept of Flow is something that athletes must master in order to perform at their peak – to be in that state of Flow.
Why Work-Life Balance Doesn’t Work
When it comes to your personal life and your business, you move from one focus to the other, constantly swimming between these worlds. In practice, you seldom combine or overlap them. You are always choosing and prioritizing one over the other. In making decisions this way, one side loses.
What if they weren’t separate, and not separate from you? What if you were able to hold all these as expressions of who you are?
How’s Your Alignment?
Now, I know that thought probably just triggered a lot of discomfort. You know immediately if your life, more specifically your sense of balance across the areas of your life, is not what you want it to be.
You might be unhappy in your personal relationships, or you might know you need more time spent on your physical health, or might need to expand your business. You might be struggling to find a way to juggle everything, but seem to never feel you have them all under control. You might just feel that something’s off and you can’t put your finger on it. Or you might have climbed the mountain only to find it is not the peak you had expected.
It’s okay. There is another way.
The Dream Maker’s Aligned Approach to Life
Work-life balance is not possible. Alignment is what makes everything move forward smoothly. Think of the tires on your car. You can drive when they are not in alignment, but the ride will be bumpy and you’ll struggle to steer your wheels straight toward your destination.
The difference of just a few degrees will negatively affect your equipment, and the experiential qualities of your journey.
When your tires are aligned, you can steer using one finger and will arrive feeling more at ease and focused. And so it is with life.
What’s Different About The Aligned Life
You can take an aligned approach to achieve that state where you flow easily from one focus to another.
This approach acknowledges that you are responsible for your experiences and works because you make conscious choices based on what is Most Important for you.
Here are the main pieces to activate this approach.
First, identify what is most important to you, what are your values, what are your must-haves in this life. These are more quality-focused, and not dependent on physical things or achievements.
Second, look at all areas of your life and assess how far off your alignment is in each area.
We add one important element that snaps them all into place. We add your connection to the spiritual realm – with your Higher Self and to Spirit/Source. This focuses you on the more intrinsic aspect of Being, rather than Doing.
Alignment with this connection shortens the time between having an aligned thought and actually seeing it materialize. Manifesting becomes fun when you Allow this element in.
