BENEFITS OF LIVING IN ALIGNMENT
As soon as you begin to align your human self with your spiritual or energetic self, you’ll experience the benefits of Living in Alignment.
You do this by listening to and following the guidance/ promptings from your spiritual self---your intuition.
Listening to and following the guidance/promptings from your spiritual self will always have favorable results — with no exceptions!
Likewise, when you don’t listen to or follow the guidance and promptings from your spiritual self--intuition you will always regret your choices and decisions…
HERE are some of the benefits that Living in Alignment can offer you:
Listening to and following the guidance and promptings of your spiritual self---your intuition represents a change in orientation from being primarily externally resourced (i.e, having your egoic mind/ intellect be your locus of power) to becoming internally resourced by deferring to and relying upon your spiritual self to direct your life.
This is a more desired and fulfilling way of living your life that wise people from all religious traditions and spiritual paths have been promoting and teaching ever since humans have been seeking answers to their existential questions. It is tried and true or evidenced based!
The Living in Alignment Model, approach, process is simple in both theory and in practice. I’m serious when I say that the benefits of Living in Alignment will be experienced as soon as you start listening to and following your intuition. As you already know, the proof is in the pudding, try it and see for yourself!
You have nothing to lose except an outmoded and unsatisfactory way of being and living your life. What you’ll gain is increased awareness and understanding about the significance of your life along with a new lease on living your life.
WHAT the spiritual path offers is a way to come back into balance, to develop our intuition and the wisdom of our heart, so that the intellect is no longer the master, but instead is the servant of the heart - the part of us that brings us into unity with ourselves and all other beings.

A Common Misconception about Spirituality…
Many people think of spirituality as being synonymous with religion, and because of this have inadvertently disconnected themselves from their spiritual self because they don’t want anything to do with religion.
In other words, many people have mistakenly associated developing or deepening their connection to Source energy with religion and or having to be affiliated with a religious organization.
Subsequently, many people have thrown out the baby with the bathwater when it comes to their spirituality by neglecting or disowning their spirituality once they dissociated from organized religion.
From the Living in Alignment perspective this is very unfortunate!
Our spirituality is an essential aspect of our beingness. It’s what connects our human self with the deepest or energetic aspect of who we are: our Soul (a term used to refer to the unique reflection of Source energy that dwells inside of us). By disowning the existence of our spiritual self, we are cutting ourselves off from Source energy — our life force!
When this occurs a person for all intents and purposes is functioning at a deficit on account that they tend not listen to and or follow the guidance and directives that are always being offered by Source energy (the power that is greater than the resources of the mind) regarding all aspects of our lives.
Along with this, ignoring, denying, or downplaying the significance of your spiritual self are ways in which you abandon yourself, creating a disconnection between your human self and your Soul that results in feelings of emptiness, aloneness, and experiencing a lack of meaning and purpose in your life. Along with this, the degree to which you live in fear is directly proportional to how connected you are with Source energy- the more disconnected you are with Source energy, the more you live in a fear-based reality!
From the Living in Alignment perspective a life that is worth living includes being able to: (1) access Source energy; (2) live in partnership with Source energy; and (3) be conscious of this vital relationship with Source energy in your daily life.
The Living in Alignment body of work taps into the core of all religious experience, which is the promise of a deepening connection with Source energy, one that endures any and all hardships, conditions, challenges, and the like. Living in Alignment is inclusive of all religious teachings and spiritual paths that foster unity consciousness.

Religion versus Spirituality
From the perspective of the Living in Alignment Model, although religion and spirituality are not mutually exclusive, neither are they one and the same. The main difference is that religion is usually associated with an organization (along with dogma), while spirituality is not.
As a spiritual being you may or may not choose to be affiliated with a religious organization, but if you are religious, you most likely will be. As part of your soul mission as a spiritual being, you may be called to be associated with religious organizations, but from a place of being a transformative presence within those organizations in order to raise awareness, deepen people’s understanding, and assist in bringing about change.
Some people who are religious think that they need an intermediary to access Source energy. In contrast, when you acknowledge that you are a spiritual being, you know that you can access Source energy directly without the need for any sort of go-between.
As a spiritual being you have access to the wisdom of Universal Mind (or Source energy) at any time, anywhere, and in any place. You can just as easily connect with Source energy in nature, in meditation, in your dream state, or while doing yoga, eating delicious food, taking in beauty, etc. as in a church, synagogue, or mosque.
Do you think that you need someone or an organization to tell you what to believe about Source energy or spirituality? If so, be careful, because you are likely to become a follower. Or are you ready to develop your own opinions and make your own decisions about Source energy and spirituality based on your own experiences?
When you are grounded in your spirituality, you tend to go within to access the answers to your questions. It is about trusting that your answers are to be found within, rather than thinking that you need to be told by others what to believe and or how to live your life.
Being grounded in your spirituality is also about becoming your own authority rather than living in tribal consciousness, in which following the leader in the norm. A grounded spirituality is the result of accessing your truth based on the distillation of insights, gifts, and lessons from your direct or subjective experiences. This is not to say that you will not take outside influences into account, but, that you will move into the position of allowing your Soul (or whatever term you use to refer to the unique reflection of Source energy that dwells inside of you) to be the final authority.

Living in Alignment is much more than a theoretical framework to view life, it is a viable and easily realizable way of living your life!
This evidence based approach is practical, effective, and reliable.
The concepts presented in the Living in Alignment Model, are a distillation of “perennial wisdom” ( i.e., existential truths) that has been adapted to the 21st century audience. These concepts are intended to replace limiting and or faulty beliefs and perceptions for the purpose of transforming your life by expanding your awareness and opening your heart. The validity of these concepts are intended to be tested out subjectively in the course of living your life.
From the perspective of LIA, it is your birthright to be Living in Alignment - to be living in partnership with your spiritual self or Source energy.
Your spiritual self is the unique reflection of Source energy (or whatever name you use to refer to the power that is greater than the resources of your mind) that resides inside of you. It is the energetic or core aspect of who you are.
Everyone is living in alignment to a lesser or greater extent in their daily lives. However, many people are not conscious of it, in conflict about it, perplexed by it, or unaware of its personal significance.
When you listen to and follow the guidance and promptings of your intuition (the voice of your spiritual self) you are living in alignment. Listening to and following the guidance/ promptings from your spiritual self is always advantageous, no exceptions! Likewise, when you tune out and/or don’t follow this guidance you will always regret not doing so. The truth of this proposition will be revealed as you reflect upon your life choices and decisions.
The Living in Alignment body of work has been developed to (1) assist you to access Source energy within yourself: (2) assist you to form a partnership with Source energy; (3) to assist you to have a conscious living experience of this vital relationship within your daily life.
The Living in Alignment body of work will facilitate moving out of tribal consciousness (where following a leader is the norm) and assist you to experience a direct and personal connection with Source energy vis-a-vis your relationship with your Soul (or whatever name you use to refer to your spiritual self).
Living in Alignment fosters an interdependent relationship with Source energy as an alternative to either depending on religious leaders to administer to your spiritual needs or disowning your innate spirituality.
Your Soul needs your human self to be its hands and feet (or its agent), while your human self needs your Soul to gain access to the “bigger picture” view of your life.
By partnering with Source energy you will discover the true meaning and purpose of your life, access the guidance that is always available, actualize your full potential, and experience the freedom to be all of who you are.

Although you will never be able to fully comprehend Source energy you can become increasingly aware of the workings of Source energy in your life, in others people’s lives and in the world around you…
The more you become “internally resourced” (by deferring to and relying upon your Soul) and live in alignment (by listening to and following the guidance/ promptings from your Soul), the more you’ll actually experience the workings of your Soul in your daily life.
Keep in the forefront that as you develop your awareness, you’ll become increasingly conscious of your Soul’s activity.
Your Soul is a term I use to refer to the unique reflection of Source energy (the power that is greater than the resources of your mind), it is your spiritual or energetic self at the core of your being. It has a mission in life and your human self/ mind is intended to know this mission or calling in life. From the perspective of Living in Alignment, your Soul is intended to led your life not your mind. Your Soul continues to exist after your physical body dies.
Your Soul is ingenious and highly creative in how it works with your human self/ mind, as revealed in countless ways. Your human self/ mind will be absolutely amazed at some of the workings of your soul within your life and the lives of others.
Developing your capacity to be present is key to experiencing the workings of your Soul in your daily life, this is accomplished by having the intention and tuning in to what is happening in your daily life. Let go of the need to do this perfectly, do the best you can and remember that practice makes better!
Becoming and staying present is facilitated and gets easier the more receptive you are to viewing all the experiences and events in your life ( be it those that happened in the past, those that happening now, and those that are yet to occur) as having the “inherent potential” of serving or benefiting you.
I say inherent potential because until you embody this proposition your mind’s mental defenses are likely to get in the way. This is evidenced when your mind becomes dualistic and places experiences into categories as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative, as such it will often reject those experiences that it deems to bad, wrong or negative. Subsequently, you’ll miss out on experiencing many of the benefits (i.e., the insights, gifts, and lessons) being offered in your daily life.
Also, the less present you are the less likely you are to track the synchronicities that are happening in your life. Synchronicities are the energetic phenomena ( a seeming coincidence) that occurs when you’re asking for and aligning with the greatest potential of what wants to happen in any given moment or situation. You can view it as a confirmation that something of importance is occuring. This may take many forms, such as a person coming into your life at a crucial time; a new opportunity; a solution to a problem, etc.
In addition, the less present you are the less likely you will tune into let alone be able to discern when Source energy is attempting to capture the attention of your mind/ intellect. More specifically, the less present you are the less likely you’ll be able to hear the guidance or promptings that Source energy is continuously offering about all aspects of your life. It is the listening to and following the guidance and directives that will give your mind the proof it may require to acknowledge that Source energy is more qualified, experienced and more adept to lead your life than the alternative of having your egoic mind in the proverbial driver’s seat.
Remember that as you become more internally resourced and live in alignment, you’ll become more aware of how you participate in the co-creation of your life, where synchronicity, providence and destiny play out in astonishing ways.

The Living in Alignment Model provides a language and a context to understand the paradigm shift that is occurring amongst our species. Namely, that human beings are evolving from five sensory beings to sixth sensory beings by virtue of developing our intuition.
From the perspective of LIA, our intuition is considered the voice of the Soul or the unique reflection/ aspect of Source energy that is within every person. The cognitive framework of the Living in Alignment Model consist of concepts ( a distillation of perennial wisdom for the 21st century audience) that is intended to expand your awareness/ mind and open your heart.
The main premise of the LIA Model is that we are human and spiritual beings, not one or the other but both!
Although the Living in Alignment Model is not affiliated with any religious organizations, it is inclusive of all teachings that foster unity consciousness.
The Model was initially designed as a program consisting of twelve modules which addresses subject matter deemed necessary for your mind to understand in order in order to facilitate developing a partnership with your spiritual self.
The Living in Alignment Approach provides a skill base to effectively work with your mind to identify, examine, modify and replace limited and or faulty beliefs, perceptions, and expectations that are interfering with, sabotaging and/ or preventing your human self from partnering with Source energy and subsequently living up to your greatest potential.
The Living in Alignment Process focuses on the integration of LIA concepts and skills into your behaviors/ actions to help ensure that your endeavor to experience self empowerment and personal transformation is successful and remains grounded in both the physical world and in the world of mystery.
The Living in Alignment Model/ Approach/ Process has three main objectives:
The Living in Alignment Model has been developed as a comprehensive and stand-alone body of work to ensure that the three main objectives are successfully accomplished, it will augment all teachings and spiritual paths that foster personal growth and transformation.
The two main groups of people who are drawn to the Living in Alignment body of work are:

Do you find yourself at a juncture in your understanding where you both recognize and acknowledge that your mind is often in conflict about important life decisions (or many decisions for that matter)?
Have you determined that this conflict is between your intellect and your intuition-your inner knowing/ truth?
Are you also aware of times when you did listen to and followed the guidance and promptings from your intuition that the results were always favorable ? Likewise, have you become aware that when you haven’t listened to and/ or followed your intuition that you always regretted your choices and decisions?
Have you decided that you want your mind to stop spending so much time and energy being in conflict and have deduced that listening to and following your intuition is the solution to resolving this conflict?
Perhaps you find yourself in a position of believing that there is a power that is greater than the resources of your mind but want to move into a position of knowing this truth, and are determined to deepen your relationship with this power?
Other common reasons why you may find yourself at a juncture in your understanding is because your intellect or societal conditioning is at a lost to help you live life on its terms. Perhaps its death calling at your door, a tragedy, hardship, a feeling of emptiness, addiction, injustices, marginalization/ oppression, betrayal, abandonment, grief and loss, etc.?
Could it be a yearning for something different, unmet needs, feeling stuck or lost in your life and/or going through life without a sense of meaning and purpose?
Maybe it’s an acknowledgement that you’ve been living in a fear and /or shame-based reality and intuit that there is a better and more desirable way to be living your life?
People drawn to the Living in Alignment Model are those who are intent on resourcing themselves and their lives from Source energy ( or whatever name you use to refer to the power that is greater than the resources of your intellect/ egoic mind).
Are you this person?
Resourcing yourself from Source energy is for all intents and purposes about having Source energy in the proverbial driver’s seat. This occurs when you defer to and rely upon Source energy as your go-to instead of your mind to led your life.
This phenomenon is referred to as being internally resourced as oppose to being primarily externally resourced (being overly identified with your humanity and relying mostly upon your intellect as the locus of power). People who are internally resourced still develop and use their intellects to the fullest extent to meet their human needs and they do so while meeting their spiritual needs/ completing their Soul mission-calling in life.
More and more people are acknowledging that being primarily externally resourced fosters and perpetuates living in survival mode- where fear/ anxiety is the predominate emotion and state of being. As people become more aware they are concluding for themselves that becoming internally resourced is the way to live their lives.
From the perspective of Living in Alignment, resourcing yourself and your life from Source energy is not only a viable option, it is the most optimal way of being and living your life!
Living in Alignment is your birthright!
This natural way of being and living your life is not just for a chosen few but for anyone who is seeking to experience personal growth/ transformation and to be living in partnership with Source energy.

Living in Alignment is the experience you’ll have when your human self/ egoic mind yields to and merges with your spiritual self/ Soul ( a term I use to refer to the deepest aspect of who you are- the power that resides inside of you that is greater than the resources of your mind)...
Living in Alignment is a very advantageous/ beneficial way of being and living your life...
You will experience a transformative process of change: from being primarily externally resourced (i.e., overly identified with your humanity) to becoming internally resourced (i.e., when you live in partnership with your Soul)...
Instead of allowing societal conditioning and expectations to override your inner knowing or truth (i.e., your intuition-the voice of your Soul), you will learn to listen to and follow the guidance and promptings from your Soul.
Living in Alignment with your Soul will foster your self-empowerment and facilitate your personal transformation (along with many other benefits) that are grounded in both the physical world and in the world of mystery...
Along with offering you a personal life philosophy that is congruent with what is true in the universe, you’ll discover for yourself why Living in Alignment is a more desirable and sought after option to live your life.
Living in Alignment is both simple in theory and in practice!

Within the scientific world it is objectivity that substantiates the validity of a theory, if something can’t be proven objectively than as far as many people are concerned it doesn’t have merit.
Quantum physics have objectively proven that consciousness is the ground of our being-the matrix of life!… for many people the term “consciousness” is synonymous with Source energy (or whatever name you use to defer to the power that is greater than the resources of your mind)…
From the perspective of the Living in Alignment Model, the best minds together would never be able to fully comprehend Source energy because it is beyond the capacity of the human mind/ intellect to grasp. Because of this premise, Source energy is not objectively quantifiable. However, you can become increasingly aware of the workings of Source energy in your daily life. In this context, subjectivity replaces objectivity as a viable means to prove the existence of Source energy.
Do you give merit to subjective proof ?
When it comes to Source energy, having a direct or subjective experience of its existence is not only of importance it is necessary in order for the intellect to move from a position of believing or wanting to believe, to a position of knowing that Source energy is as real as the difference between night and day.
As your mind becomes receptive to experiencing the workings of Source energy in your life it will gain all the proof it requires to acknowledge the existence of Source energy.
From the perspective of the Living in Alignment Model, validating the presence of Source energy is accomplished by testing out and directly experiencing the qualities of Source energy in your daily life…. The main objectives of the Living in Alignment approach is to assist people to access, partner with, and have a conscious experience of this vital relationship with Source energy....
These noteworthy qualities that wise people from all traditions and spiritual paths have discovered and espoused about Source energy are:
Benevolent: Source energy is a loving presence in our lives.
Intelligent: Source energy is the wellspring of universal wisdom.
Interactive: you can interrelate with Source energy energetically as well as physically in your relationships with all life forms (because you and all life forms are unique reflections of Source energy).
Ingenious: Source energy is highly skillful in its ability first to get the attention of, and then to work with your human self/egoic mind.
Creative: Source energy is the life force energy inside you that you use to co-create.
Omnipresent: Source energy is within all that is.
Unifying: Source energy illuminates your interconnectedness with all life forms.
Self-generating energy system: Source energy is continuously unfolding, creating, and transforming.
In addition, Source energy is not static, but in a constant state of evolution.
