The Missing Ingredient For True Alignment In Your Life

January 23, 2020

Do you ever feel stressed when trying to follow someone else’s recipe toward alignment?

You know, the checklist that – if you do everything perfectly, in the exact way they tell you to – is sure to bring peace and serenity to your life?

I know I do.

Get stressed that is.

Peace and serenity is pretty quickly thrown out the window when I *try* to follow someone else’s recipe.

Why is that, do you think??

I think it’s because we try to follow someone else’s recipe toward alignment expecting it will bring us the same results – Peace, Serenity, Our Ideal Life.

BUT we are NOT the person who created the recipe, and could not – SHOULD not – expect the same results.

I know. Radical right?

So what’s a girl / guy to do?

I mean, it worked for them. Won’t it work for you too?

Maybe. In part. Or a lot. Or not at all.

And what happens then?

If you’re like most of us, you might feel duped. Or like you failed. Or that if you had put in a little more effort you would have reached the same level / goal / achievement they had.

Unfortunately there’s a missing ingredient in that secret recipe that the person / guide / (supposed) guru failed to mention.


Your Guidance System

Your Inner Wisdom

Your Soul

Your Higher Self

Your Heart

Your Life Purpose


I’ve ALWAYS been one for individuality.

I love non-conformists.

I love those who walk to the beat of their own drum.

I love those who show up and make a difference in the world *particularly* when others said it couldn’t be done and they go ahead and do it anyway.

If 2019 taught us anything it’s that it’s OK for you, me and everyone else to be who they know themselves to be.

That means it’s perfectly OK for you to do EXACTLY what you want to do in regards to caring for yourself, to reach the goals, dreams and desires you want and deserve in your life.

I have a message to share with the world, and perhaps do you too. Let’s learn from each other in 2020. Let’s be guiding lights together for those who need it. To help them stand in their own power, beside us, as sisters and brothers together, on this journey of life.

Because without others on the same journey, our lives would be pretty lonely.


As I was writing this post, these words dropped into my head. They seemed too good not to share.

In the words of Michael Jackson,

“Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race.”

With much love,
