12/12/12 – A Day of Alignment

As we live this wonder-filled life at “The Edge”, we are gifted with help and direction every day! Today, December 12, 2012 (12/12/12), even more beautiful gifts are freely offered. Today contains the gifts of discovery and alignment!

12/12/12 is a Day of Alignment!  Yes, this date is historic.  We are experiencing 12/12/12 in our lifetime!  RT.com,** provides an interesting  summary of these numbers and their possible meanings (see below).

Interesting?  Insighful?  Fun?  Yes!  But, what does this have to do with our everyday life?

For me, it is an “opportunity-gift” that offers us the time to reflect and make choices about who we are in the world and how we ‘live’ this life we have been given.

12/12/12 – a Day of Alignment.  But, alignment to what or who?

Alignment to who we truly are – who YOU truly are!  So often, we live our days on autopilot and respond hither and yon to whatever someone says about who we are.  But, the thing is, we have free will to choose to live as we truly are!

So, who are we?  Who are you?

This came to mind this morning and I want to share two of my favorite ‘reminders’ of who we are.  I learned the first, Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann when I was in 6th grade.  (It was our morning prayer led by our parochial school teacher).  The second is from a workshop led by my favorite teacher and mentor, Abraham/Hicks:

Desiderata – Words for Life by Max Ehrmann (Stanzas 6,7)

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive God to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

Who You Really AreAbraham/Hicks

“You don’t need to be better.  You just need to tend to your vibration and be who you really are.  And who you really are is really bright and smart with really good timing and wonderful intuitiveness and wonderful uplifting abilities.   Who you are is one who loves easily and thinks openly and expands profusely!  Who you really are is someone who adores life and who loves yourself and loves others – that’s who you really are!  Who you really are is an up lifter and an optimistic being who adores being here and who just cannot wait to get your hands in the creative clay of your life experience; because you know who you are and who you are is so wonderful.  Worthiness is not an issue.  You just expect wonderful things to happen to you and wonderful things have been happening to you and you know that wonderful things are continuing to happen.  That’s who you are….”

This is who YOU really are!

How to align with you and Source who adores you?

Today’s “leaping” exercise:  Alignment is a lifelong journey!  (That’s what ‘Come to the Edge Today’ is all about – the discovery and experience of alignment!)  Be patient, persistent and utterly devoted to the unfolding process.  Following are 12(!)* suggestions for opening up and aligning with You and God/Source within you who adores you!

  1. Give yourself permission to Love yourself vs criticism, loathing and not-enoughness
  2. Listen to your heart and follow it’s ‘downstream’ guidance vs listening to your ego and going the ‘upstream’ path
  3. Giving and receiving freely vs not giving or being open to receive
  4. Following your joy vs forcing yourself, acting out of ‘have-to’s’ and ‘shoulds’
  5. Trusting your heart vs not believing in your inner wisdom
  6. Thinking about how far you have come vs focusing on how far you have to go
  7. Focusing on what you want and love vs focusing only on what you don’t want
  8. Speaking of abundance vs talking about problems and lack
  9. Being aware and paying attention vs operating on autopilot
  10. Believing your dreams and passion are important (and acting upon them) vs the apathetic view of ‘my life isn’t working out’
  11. Clear intent and directed will vs vague or undefined goals
  12. Living a life of gratitude and appreciation vs not-enoughness and ‘why me’

*  Some suggestions are given from Orin/DaBen

**From rt.com:   “According to Chinese numerology, the number one is a yang number which is ruled by the sun and represents independence and individualism. Two is a yin number which is ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. When placed together, the number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang, balancing the feminine energy of the moon with the masculine energy of the sun. So, what we can gather is that 12/12/12 equals lots of harmony.  Three is generally considered a heavenly number and often represents the soul or godhead. Four is the number of earth and mankind – for example, there are four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) and four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). Because of this, the product of the two numbers, 12, has been said to encompass both the secular and the sacred. So 12/12/12 should mean that both sides will be represented more than usual.”
