The other day I came across an inspiring and instructive quote from Abraham Hicks.

The closer you are to alignment with what you want, the calmer it feels.

If you’d rather listen to this blog than read it, please click play. Otherwise, keep reading below. 

Here’s why I say it’s instructive:

Think about where you lack a sense of calm or peace in your life. 

Is it related to your body? Your health? Your food choices? Your fitness? Finances? Relationship? Home? Career?

Instead of seeking a specific outcome such as weight loss or a different relationship, seek to make choices that make you feel calm. Seek to avoid choices that create tension, frustration, disappointment or regret.

I don’t know about you, but overeating doesn’t make me feel calm. It makes me feel tired and sluggish, but that’s not the same as calm.

Skipping workouts doesn’t make me feel calm.

Oversleeping and procrastinating don’t make me feel calm.

When you’re making the right choices for your life and your priorities, you will find a sense of calm.

When and where you lack that sense of peace and calm, you know where you have work to do.

The closer you are to alignment with what you want, the calmer it feels.
