Okay I've given you tones of great cosy tips and resources so far, today we are gonna kick it up a notch.
A is for Alignment but I am NOT talking about The Law Of Attraction, The Secret or any of that New Age Stuffs (I'm being nice) although I am going to address it in just a moment.
But out first example is business.
So how does alignment apply to business.
Well, you need to align your business with your moral compass or else it will fail. For this I recommend making a values bracelet
Here's how it works.
Choose 5 different beads that represent the 5 main areas of your life and the most important value for each area of your life, that are core to who you are and what you stand for, and then put your business bead right in the middle, because your business will be the main thing your working on for a long time, and everything else will fit in around it because when you are the one with reagns, like with a business, if you drop them then your metaphorical horse could run off the edge of the cliff taking you and business with it.
Here's a picture of my values bracelet.
So this bracelet is built on these 5 areas and the core value for each.
1.Faith & Spirituality - Intimately
2.Relationships - Trust
4. Well-being (in my case stress management)-Consistency
5.Artistic projects- Joy
So as you can see, my core value for business is integrity. This now becomes the driving force of who I am as a person, because I need to be integrate in life, in order to be integrate in my business.
So as long as I am working to make integrity the corner stone of my business, then everything else will fall in place, because being integrity means I need to take care of the other areas of my life.
Therefore I am aligned, in myself and my business.
Moving on to the using your art to help with your life change.
I'm gonna be straight with you guys, I am going to expos the law of attraction in this section because so many people fall for this New Age rubbish and the law of attraction can actually knock you out of alignment.
We don't want that.
If you don't want your bubble burst, click off now.
Okay you are still here,
Let me unpack this.
Short version: All magic comes at a price.
I'm borrowing that line from the tv series once upon a time. It illustrates this point so clearly and is just really good writing so you should check it out, but anyways back on point.
You've heard it said that if something appears too good to be true, it most likely is. Well I'm sorry to tell you guys, but that's the truth about the law of attraction.
If you believe in the Law Of Attraction, then I'm guessing your a spiritual person and so let's call that thing that gives you the thing you want is actually just simply a form of magic.
It's common belief that magic can be good or bad, but actually the magic that causes the law of attraction to happen comes from the same dark source. That dark source doesn't care if your playing with his seemingly nice little toys thinking they are safe. The snakes he hid in those toys, will bite you anyway.
Maybe you don't think there is a price but how many times have you or someone you know who has used the law of attraction, suddenly felt really unwell and been bed-ridden for ages. Or how many times have you used the LOA and something special to you suddenly broke, or worse someone you care about died?
The truth is that the Law Of Attraction is nothing more than a gateway drug to suck you into the New Age.
This is so dangerous. It can cost your life. Please don't mess with it.
My personal gripe with it is that the Law Of Attraction belittles God to be apart of His own creation. God is sovereign and He is the creator., He is the one that created you in His image and gave you your artistic abilities. Don't slap in the face by saying that He is no better than something He made. You wouldn't like it if someone said you are about as worthy as the piece of art you are most disappointed didn't end up being what you would have liked, and neither does He. You have free will and creation didn't give you that, the creator did. Okay, I'l leave it there. You can tell I'm fired up and that's because it angers me to see people get hurt needless, especially by the evil one, but instead of preaching at you here's a list of resources encase you want to study the topic further.
I'm not as qualified as some to whistle-blow this whole law of attraction thing, but I do know the spirit world and what goes on there very, very well. I've seen both the light and dark side and I am not afraid to say that although I don't ascribe to everything that churchianity teaches. I do count myself a Christ-ian. There's your out, if you want to just dismiss what I am saying as just religious nonsense, that's fine, but I'm not your advantage believer by any stretch of the imagination, and I am talking from experience when I say that the number one thing that the law of attraction causes is brain fog and all the lovely things like depression and anxiety that comes with it.
A foggy brain won't make good art.
If you are serious about making this change you need to align with yourself using the tips I gave in the business section, then align with your creator.
That's as close as we get to any faith based content and I think this was heavy enough for one day so let's leave it there and tomorrow I promise to go back to playing nice.
See you then.
