Freedom Through Alignment

There is incredible freedom in knowing you are not alone and that you are supported. It starts from within, through your alignment.

The most powerful path to create freedom in your life is through alignment. When we are out of alignment, everything feels harder.  We have all had those moments when life feels impossible. If we have experienced trauma, the journey of healing can get overwhelming, and we feel lost.A stack of rocks with a white flower floating on water

When we are aligned with Source/God/Universe, we feel supported. This support allows us to feel safer and begin to trust in life. We slowly but surely develop trust in our future and a knowing in our power as creators in our lives.

No matter how you feel right now, you can begin to reclaim your alignment with Source/God/Universe, starting with five minutes a day.

Find a spiritual teacher you connect with and look for audios, videos and books by them – immerse yourself in their teachings for a few minutes a day.

Use journaling: If you have been following my blogs, you will know that I often advocate using journaling. Your journal can even be an audio or video journal if writing does not feel good to you. Journaling can be a tool to uncover things you have not otherwise expressed. It is also a means to release mental weight. You can write down things you desire, experiences you need to process or things you want to let go of (you can even burn the pages afterwards as a release).

Some people find meditation hard to do. Meditation is the act of clearing the mind – a mental reset to facilitate letting go of any thoughts that don’t serve you. With a clear mind, you can choose thoughts that feel better. If you find meditation hard, use guided meditations to begin with. Using the voice of your chosen guide to calm your being acts as a reset. Or perhaps prayer is the path for you to reconnect with Source/God/Universe.

Being in nature:
For some people, stepping away from the busyness of life and getting into nature is a fantastic way to get back into alignment. Taking a hike, disconnecting from the internet, and just surrounding yourself with beauty and the verdant life of Mother Nature, can be extremely healing, allowing you to shift your being into alignment again.

Yoga can also be a way to quiet the mind and reconnect with self.

For each of us, the means to alignment is different – no two people walk the same path to alignment, as our life experiences are different. Find what works for you – not what you think you should do or what someone else has suggested. Use the method that allows you to feel a sense of relief and re-alignment.

This debut memoir chronicles a woman’s spiritual exploration and growth as she overcame a disturbing childhood and helped others heal.

Brought to America from the Dominican Republic as a youngster, Molina-Marshall should have led a happy life. Her father was a diligent worker, and his large family wanted for nothing. But the author recounts that her dad had a drinking problem and was a serial philanderer. Molina-Marshall’s long-suffering mother left him for a woman. Then it was all downhill for the bright, 12-year-old girl, who was shuttled between foster care and relatives. According to the author, she was sexually abused by the husband of one of her siblings. This resulted in Molina-Marshall becoming alienated and moody. By 15, she simply tried to survive. In her favor were grit and a restless intelligence. She quit school, rented a room, and found a factory job. Time went by, and for a while she was happily married. Yet when her husband left her, her life truly began. She turned to religion for answers but decided that blaming God for her woes was a cop-out. 

In this absorbing and moving memoir, Molina-Marshall’s vivid storytelling is fearless. She frankly discusses the truths she discovered and the indignities she suffered. These admissions are disclosed with a touch of resignation and plenty of bite. However painful, everything she experienced was a lesson, and she bravely realized that she was part of the problem: “The fear of being hurt, rejected, or abused often led to me feeling lonely and misunderstood. No one knew the agonizing pain I felt being trapped in my thoughts and anger. I was becoming my biggest threat.” 

The author skillfully recounts her intricate spiritual journey. To deal with her psychic wounds, she searched for an inspirational system. Her open-mindedness led her to the interfaith concept—cherry-picking from various religions and spiritual movements, yoga, and Indigenous beliefs as a way of finding peace. Along with her female partner, she built a therapy practice, making use of every spiritual element that aided her and others. The road was bumpy, and she found that women of color in same-sex relationships were not welcomed everywhere. To do good works—and finally live on her own terms—she effectively overcame bigotry.

An engrossing, cathartic account of empathy and success through determination and confidence.
