I’ve been thinking a lot about the alignment of personal will with divine will. And true co-creation. Whether you are somebody involved in the law of attraction, magic, or simple intention or goal setting, I feel that it’s really important to go deep before wishing or chasing something.
I think we all have experienced that phrase “be careful what you wish for.” Which can be fine, honestly - if you see it as a learning experience where next time, you’ll try to bring your desires more in alignment with your higher self.
It’s time to stop the demonization of personal will/desires/ego. It’s not about sacrificing our deepest longings or becoming desire-less beings. If we can bring this aspect of ourselves in resonance with our hearts, our intuition, our deepest knowing (what I consider divine guidance) then amazing things can happen.
This is one reason why I love living in resonance with the cycles of nature. Respecting the ebb and flow, waxing and waning aspects of natural phenomenon (like the seasons and the cycles of the moon) teaches us to honor the light and the dark, the active and the passive. The cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth which is crucial for growth. We need to retreat, withdraw and go within regularly to access our intuition in order to receive guidance on our next steps in life. Action without intuition is often motivated by external definitions of success which are not in resonance with our true selves.
I just wrote a free ebook called Living a Divinely Inspired Life: Using Your Intuition to Co-Create with the Universe, because the process of slowing down, receiving, and trusting our intuitive guidance is something many people still struggle with. Wouldn’t the world be such a better place if we acted from a more intuitive, heart-centered, authentic place? Download it for free here if this calls to you. I wish you the best of luck on your journey!
