“How Did I Align to This?”
Which is why it can be so disconcerting when things go wrong, like when …
- our health takes a nosedive
- we’re involved in an accident
- we get fired at work
- a love affair turns out poorly.
I know I’m not the only manifestor who has wondered, “How in the world was I aligned to that?!” when something crappy happens.
After all, we’re LOA savvy people!
We know to cultivate a positive focus and lead with what feels good. This is the sort of stuff that happens to undiscerning muggles, not powerful conscious creators. Where did we go wrong?
If you’ve ever asked “wth?” about a bad manifestation, you’re not alone.
And … you’re likely missing another possibility.
Because there’s a different conclusion we can come to – one that serves us much better.
Instead of seeing it as something gone wrong, we can decide that it’s for our highest good.
Bashar says we’re really good at invalidating the ‘unwanted’ events (and thus invalidating ourselves) when we ask, “Why did this terrible thing happen to me? I thought I was more spiritual than this.”
That’s a common response, but Bashar suggests a better conclusion goes something like:
I don’t know how this serves me, but it must. I have no idea how this is going to be good news, but I know that it is. (Because that is what I prefer.)
By choosing something other than a negative interpretation, even when we can’t fathom how it could be positive, we allow ourselves to experience a different (more preferred) reality.
Here’s a great example of that from a friend of Darryl’s who was robbed:
(The video clip was taken down, so I’ll summarize …)
The friend was a music aficionado who wanted a new radio for his car. He couldn’t afford the top of the line, so he bought the model that his budget allowed.
Shortly after his car was broken into and his radio was stolen.
But he refused to conclude that this was a bad thing. He maintained the perspective that some how some way this served him.
The insurance company paid out the stolen radio as well as the damage done to the car. But when he had the car repaired, it was such an easy fix that the repairman didn’t charge him.
So now he had – to the exact penny – the amount needed for the radio he wanted all along.
That’s why it’s so powerful for us to stay out of negative conclusions, and instead see that everything that happens is a gift.
It is what we say it is, so finding a way to decide that it’s good news (and we don’t have to know how that’s so, just leave room that it is) opens up a whole new world of positive possibilities.
It’s worth remembering the next time you might be tempted to wonder what’s wrong with your alignment as you’re looking at a manifestation gone “wrong.”
It could just as easily be a sign of something going really right with your vibration. All you have to do is choose so.
And that’s a skill that marks you as a powerful conscious creator.
We’d love to hear your examples, if you care to share …
