Living In Alignment With Your Values
“Intuition is the language of the heart; the alignment of your personal truth. Always listen to the voice of your heart, this is your True Authentic Self” ~ Nancy
Ever notice how much more fulfilling life can be when you surround yourself with people who value love, truth and integrity? To recognizing when you are in alignment with your values and experiencing an authentic life, is to know when you are and when you are not living your life with integrity.
The meaning of integrity is personal and individual to each of us. Knowing what your definition is can be very helpful when you need guidance with major decisions and choices in life. Perhaps your definition of integrity might be to do what you promised or have said you would do. Ideally, when your actions match your words – When your life and actions align with your beliefs, words and behavior – this is when you will know you are living an authentic life with integrity. See people for who they really are, especially yourself.
You can be fully aware when you are in alignment with your authentic life and living with integrity, by noticing certain positive physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual sensations within yourself. Think back to a time when you had to make a major decision and you just knew you were making the right choice because you felt in alignment with living your authentic life. How did you feel physically? Emotionally? Intellectually? Spiritually? Here is an an example:
Physically: You seem to have a spring in your step. You smile easily. Often, you experience an inner knowing and there is no tightness, but a lighter feeling.
Emotionally: You feel uplifted, energized, peaceful, joyful, fulfilled and “in the flow”.
Intellectually: Things seem to make more sense, thoughts connect you to the right resources at the right time and you experience an inner joy.
Spiritually: A feeling of calmness, a heightened awareness. Being able to create effortlessly for a long time; creativity seems to flow through you from a higher source.
Alternatively, the opposite sensations, such as more negative sensations, can occur when you are not in alignment with living your life with integrity to your authentic values. You might notice the “red flag” inside of you that seems to act as a warning message when you may be out of alignment of your core values and the situation would not be for your highest good. The next time you are experiencing misalignment and a stressful internal conflict, take a minute to get in tune with yourself. Ask yourself what you are feeling, thinking, sensing on the following levels:
Physically: Is there a sense of tightness in stomach, shoulders or somewhere within the body that you are very aware of? Perhaps you feel you might be sighing more often or not breathing as deeply.
Emotionally: You may be feeling frustrated, stressed, confused, disappointed and overwhelmed.
Intellectually: Lack of clarity, your thought process takes more energy, it is hard to focus, you are feeling bored.
Spiritually: Feels as if a big rock is in all of your chakras and a lack of flow, disconnected to Source. Feeling “stuck”.
Being aware of and knowing what the sensations are when you are in alignment or experiencing misalignment, is the key to the guidance that we seek when making decisions, choices and setting the right intentions. When we live a life based on our true core values and integrity, our hearts are more open and we can trust our intuition.
Something inspiring seems to happen when listening to the spirit and love within. Your heart has a way of guiding you in choosing what is right for you. When all your energies and focus are going in the same direction, life seems to flow a little better and amazing things can happen! Trust your intuition to show you the correct path, the right answers. When “yes” seems to equal your core values, this is always 100% and in alignment with living your authentic life with integrity.
Nothing is truly meaningful unless doing it authentically and with integrity. It is like living your life unconscious. Being conscious of who you are and your authentic preferences equals a better chance of living a fulfilling life based on your true core values and integrity.
Begin to focus on living your life with integrity according to your authentic core values and be in alignment so your actions match your intentions.
