A question that is frequently asked is, “How do I know if I am aligned with my soul path?” One of the best ways is to learn to connect with your Higher Self,  keep yourself in alignment, and listen to your own inner guidance.  But, not everyone chooses to listen and be aware of this intuition. All should be aware. Intuition exists for one purpose only – it is your guide or map to enable you to travel your chosen path through life.

We all have this God given ability, but not all are listening to it.  Everyone has multiple helpers in the spirit realm and all use the vehicle of intuition to speak to us and guide us on our way and keep us in alignment. These spirit helpers are there only to assist and guide us. It can be very frustrating for them when we don’t listen. How do we learn to listen?  The best way is to get into alignment with our higher spiritual self and our path.

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness ~ Mahatma Gandhi

In my work scanning people’s auras, I have found that when they are in alignment with their chosen path, their aura is huge, bright and strong. The taller, larger, brighter, and stronger the auras are, the better the individual is at receiving guidance, following through with that guidance, and staying in alignment.

However, the majority of people’s auras are not like this.  Most auras have pulled in either in height, width, or brightness and strength. What causes this to happen? Stress. It could range from simple exhaustion to worries, to huge traumas or dramas playing out in your life. All of these cause us to get out of alignment.  When we are out of alignment, the aura shrinks in size and we do not cope well with the everyday stresses that are part of life. Being, and staying, in alignment can make the difference between success and failure.

It helps, but it isn’t necessary to know exactly what your chosen path is to be able to follow it. All that is necessary is for you to eliminate the stresses and fears from your life.  If you can learn to do this, you are able to simply allow yourself to flow along with the natural current of your life path. This is  much like leisurely floating down a stream in a giant inter-tube. You can relax, enjoy the ride, and bask in the sights, smells and experiences that greet you around every bend, and revel in the adventures along the way (good and bad) knowing that all is going according to plan.

When we give into the stresses of life and allow these stresses and accompanying fears to override our thoughts, our aura shrinks and leaves us vulnerable to the negatives around us and literally cuts off our connection to our source of spirit guidance and our intuition. Our thinking becomes muddled and confused, and we find ourselves either making bad choices or at a standstill, incapable of making any choices at all. We become more vulnerable to illness, bad luck, and negative exchanges with those around us.  We can even become accident prone. As our aura shrinks, our situation looks more difficult and problems become insurmountable, until we are no longer able to cope.

Say not, ‘ I have found the path of the soul.’ Say rather, ‘I have met the soul walking upon my path.’ For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals ~ Khalil Gibran

It is very important that we regularly practice the steps that can return us to alignment. The steps won’t take away the stress but they will most definitely help us to cope with the stress more effectively. This shrinking aura can easily be corrected and bring us back into alignment with our chosen soul path. How can this be done? By slowing down our thoughts, taking a few long slow breaths in and out, or visualizing our bodies and auras filling up with a bright illuminating light. It also helps us stay in alignment if we make sure we are getting the proper nutrition, exercise and sleep.

Often we can return to a state of alignment simply by speaking with our favorite spiritual counselor who can help us gain clarity and perspective, and help us to release our fears as we speak. Your counselor can tune in to what is stressing you and help you to deal with the situation in a more effective manner, and give you the insight needed to cope.

The situation may not be as problematic as your fears are leading you to believe. After your psychic reading, you should feel a sense of release, calm and comfort as you return back into a state of alignment. As you become more relaxed, peaceful, and confident, your aura returns to its natural state of fullness and alignment.
