The Alignment Vlog – Episode 5 – The Perfection of Now

The Alignment Vlog – Episode 5 – The Perfection of Now

John Stringer, Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Author

Welcome to Episode 5 of the Alignment Vlog featuring a simple reminder of our blessed opportunity to experience the perfection of now.

You can also read the message below and find the other episodes here.

Enjoy the reminder:

Text: 

Today, I share that we are simply reminders of love and light, of divine expression and the freedom to create all sorts of wonderful mysteries in every moment.  As we learn to navigate our creation, we choose higher and higher levels of consciousness to experience the bliss from new perspectives, or more importantly, from new points of awareness – expanded and free to revel in the perfection of now.  So, let’s remember our oneness together, our perfection and power to choose harmony and alignment over resistance when we are ready.

It is not the case that resistance / suffering is a bad thing. It is simply a creation that many are ready to transcend / to stop repeating so that they can feel higher vibrations and stop re-creating the cycles of lack, imitation and suffering that have been well worn in the story lines or fabric of this illusion.  It is time for new stories, new creations, expanded expressions of the divine, as the Universe is ever expanding, the song is ever increasing, infinitely. It is time to graduate to new ways of expressing, being, in this creation of form.

There are many way showers, both of what has been created and what is being created, and for those who so choose to get on the edge of expressing something new (or at least new from this timeline perspective), it is time to let go of the old patterns, invoke the new codes and sing a new song.  

If you are ready, simply relax and breath in this moment and feel into your “YES,” aligning with the Source of who you are to assist you in releasing what no longer supports, serves and fulfills you. Release and receive the breath, the Spirit, the knowing to guide you to fulfilment NOW, expressing divine inspiration through creative ideas and action that amplify what you have created right NOW! Everything is already here, right NOW. You lack nothing. Never have and never will.

Engage the Source of what you truly are and stop being distracted by the appearance of what you have created in the world of form. Instead, align and focus on the knowing to guide you into harmony with what is and power to create anew.  

And so it is.

Alignment Vlog – Episode 2 – Inspiration vs Desperation

Alignment Vlog – Episode 2 – Inspiration vs Desperation

John Stringer, Life Teacher, Healer, Singer, Author

In Episode 2 of the Alignment Vlog, I share a video exceprt from a recent remote personal guidance session.

You can also read an extended text excerpt below.  The previous episode is located here.

Enjoy the reminder:

(NOTE: If you’d like to schedule a remote personal guidance session with me, you can do so here.)

Life is a perfect expression of what you choose to create. You are the I AM. There is no problem – it’s just, are you choosing suffering when it happens… and feeling that there is something to fix. Then, you get to reinforce that belief and feel that again. And if you’d like to feel the perfection, you begin to accept what you’re creating – even the idea of suffering and that there needs to be something fixed. And you begin to observe that and feel that, and integrate with that.. and feel that there’s a beauty in that. It’s what makes the sense of identity feel real. It’s what makes this virtual reality feel like a real journey for you. You are the divine – there is only oneness, but how the hell could you, the oneness, ever experience expansion without there being limitation? It is a masterful creation. You are the masterful creator who has created this separate identity so you can expand. Yes, of course you already know who you are, but the magnificence of what you create in your mind – even the fears, even the suffering – it feels so real. How powerful that you think you are somehow separate from your good. That is power.

It’s just like going into the scary movie and deciding to be freaked out about death, right? Some people love horror flicks – we love to create suffering and there’s nothing wrong with it. We don’t… well some of us may choose to judge the horror flick lovers, but it is what it is, right? Whatever we’re creating now is what we have chosen at the highest level of knowing that is perfect. We have chosen this to unfold as it is unfolding for our good. There is nothing that is separate from our good. So even our beliefs that we are separate, even the ideas of lack and unworthiness, even the ideas of not being complete and being unfulfilled – even those creations are for our good. They allow us to feel limitation so that we can feel expansion.

We create all the contrast. All of it is perfect and for us, to show us our power so we can feel every single nuance, curve, color, shade. It is our right. It is our right to feel as worthless as we want to feel. It is our right to feel as powerful as we want to feel, as egotistical as we want to feel, as conditioned as we want to feel. Whatever we choose, it is all for us and is all the grace and the love in action expressing the freedom that we have to choose whatever it is in this moment.

Alignment just simply allows us to see it from a higher level of consciousness so that even if we’re choosing suffering, we recognize it’s not really real and that we can actually opt out any time we want. Just like we’re in the theatre watching the movie: we can get up any time we want or we can enjoy it. It’s our choice. It’s nothing to be afraid of, it’s not the enemy. It’s not even wrong.

So, practically, our reminder is simply remembering to practice when you feel like you’ve had enough of what you’re creating and remember what you’re really seeking is the fulfilment now, not later. Not “ ok, when everything lines up and I’m doing this and I’m doing more… Ok. If that’s what my mind is telling me, let me align and see what would it feel like to be doing all that. Ooh. Then I begin to feel and create the vibrations and frequencies I’m after in the now moment. I begin to fully feel that desire and amplify it.”
We’re internally creating and taking back our power realizing that our ability to create fulfillment is independent of what things look like. We begin to recognize that our true power is higher consciousness, that divine intelligence. We cannot escape the illusion of separation and problems at this level of consciousness that believes in it. You cannot escape it when you believe you are separate from your good – you can’t escape that belief at this level that believes in it. You must access higher levels of knowing that knows that’s just a belief. And the only way to do that, again, is coming back into the present, to the now, aligning with the truth, who we are: that presence, that essence. And as we do that, the expansion naturally happens and we can invite in that higher level of consciousness. It will happen anyway, but we can actively invite from our perceived lower level and ask those questions. The answers are already there waiting, seeking and unfolding. We can do it however we want. The point is, remembering that practice to take us out of the cycle of lack when we’re ready to stop creating that. And then, it brings us back into our power and we can go from there. What then happens, we no longer create out of “separation” or desperation. We begin to create from the higher level of knowing and fulfillment out of inspiration. That inspiration guides us to amplify what we’re choosing versus to try to seek some solution to try to give ourselves what we think we lack.

Following Inspiration: Why I left a great job to create my life

Following Inspiration: Why I left a great job to create my life

I’ve spent close to the last 4 years working at an SEO / Digital Marketing agency and I loved the experience, the people, the clients and all the wonderful lessons I learned there.  As I mention in the video above, I resigned on Friday, Jan 23, 2015 (last day Jan 30) because I was inspired / guided to pursue an expanded vision for my life… all with no immediate “guaranteed” income in sight and a family of four to support.

How did this happen?

It’s all (life) lead to this, but some recent events stick out.  A few months ago, I sat down to re-evaluate the most important categories of my life and put them in priority order.  As a result, my first priority category was Personal development (knowing and loving God/Source, Self, & others, etc.). The second, Family (immediate and beyond).  Third was Music, followed by Marketing in fourth place and Business in fifth.  I realized the only category I was giving priority to in the order I made was personal development.  Business (e.g. making a living) seemed to eclipse everything else even though it was the last priority. In fact, I was spending 60+ hours per week working but was lucky to get 20 hours of quality family time each week.

On Jan 22, 2015, I asked my good friend, Ade, to hold a vision of me freeing my time. He encouraged me to re-phrase that as seeing myself Financially Free to use my time as I see fit, which I did. The very next day, I got to resign from my day job.

Although the day I resigned was a surprise to both my wife and I, we knew the day would one day come… just not so soon.  See, we frequently use meditation and prayer to get guidance in our lives and we’d asked several times about my role at my job.  We got that I would be there for a time to help “bridge the gap” and would eventually leave.  We asked if we could have replacement funds for my salary in place (e.g. BEFORE leaving) and got “yes.”  So, the day I called my wife to let her know I was getting to resign, she was understandably concerned b/c neither of us could see the replacement revenue.  As she noted, this seemed like a change in plans.  We’ve received guidance before that seemed to change later on (though not exactly like this situation), so I figured something happened to make it necessary for me to leave earlier.  Of course, I kept checking to make sure this was “best” and  I’d get the same answer to resign that day each time.  So, my wife agreed to trust w/ me and I got off the phone and resigned.

What I was later reminded of is that what we see with our eyes isn’t always what’s actually happening in that moment.  If life / Source /  God (the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent) / spirit / LOVE gives us a clear message to go one way and tells us we will be blessed, we can trust that going that way will lead to our blessings whether we see how or not.

So, I took the leap and 6 days in, things are unfolding beautifully.

The agency gave me an extra week to be “available for questions” remotely and asked to be one of my first clients.  We’ll continue to work together where the need arises while I pursue my priorities. I’m grateful for that.

What am I up to now?

As I mentioned, I’m continuing to invest in the four priority categories. For Family, I’ve been blessed to spend more quality time with my wife and children.  My son, Johnny, and I launched a new Youtube series called Science Sundays.  The first episode goes live Sunday, February 8th at 11:11 am.

Through meditation and whatever I find works, I’m aligning with source / God / spirit / love moment to moment, knowing that I can trust the very power that created and maintains the universe to lead me to what’s best.  As a result, I received inspired action and follow through to support ventures that fit the categories, including:

  1. Launching a boutique digital marketing consultancy.   I’m already serving clients as a digital marketing architect who helps design plans around SEO & Inbound Marketing.  I’m also grateful to have a new Marketing Evaluation specialist on the team, as well as amazing SEO resources, including the agency I worked for, EverSpark Interactive.
  2. I’m working on my first solo album and will release it on a new record label platform that will be part of (in some way) the label I founded with State of Man, PolyPlat Records.  I’ve dreamed of creating a label where both the fans and artists were the owners, so now’s its time to make it a reality.
  3. A virtual community surrounding the forthcoming indiehitmaker.com platform and reporting apps.  The focus of the platform will be providing A+ Revenue, Opportunities, Development, Education & Services (R.O.D.E.S.) to performing artists.
  4. Developing sustainable luxury communities / “neighborhoods” with cottage industries (Music, Organic farming, etc.). I first got inspired to go this new direction 3 years ago but kept getting it wasn’t time to fully pursue just yet.  Now, I’ll put my energies into this as guided!

I know my journey will continue to be financially abundant and fulfilling spiritually, mentally and physically b/c I’ve learned how to “seek the kingdom within” and continue expanding on that.  The most important part of life is the internal. The external follows to match it. So, if I’m “in the flow,” creating internal abundance, the external follows!

Lessons from Rocks & Sand plus Inspiration

Lessons from Rocks & Sand plus Inspiration

Two stories came to mind today, both involving rocks and sand, that reminded me of interesting lessons. You may have heard the first, but I’d like to recount it here:

“A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks right to the top, rocks about 2” diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them in to the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. The students laughed

He asked his students again if the jar was full? They agreed that yes, it was. The professor then picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – anything that is so important to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed.

The pebbles are the other things in life that matter, but on a smaller scale. The pebbles represent things like your job, your house, your car.

The sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand or the pebbles into the jar first, there is no room for the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your energy and time on the small stuff, material things, you will never have room for the things that are truly most important.

Pay attention to the things that are critical in your life. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing.

There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.”

Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter.

Set your priorities. The rest is just pebbles and sand.”

Another way I thought of looking at this today is to consider the ROCKS as truth principles / the reality of life or laws of the universe whereas the rest is just the appearances of things.   If you are familiar with the biblical parable of building a house on the rock vs on the sand, then you probably know the moral of the story is to build your house on a strong foundation so it can withstand storms.

In life, the storms can be external circumstances and building your house on a strong foundation is equivalent to building your life on inspired action and truth principles beyond mere appearances.  Making the inspired action or guidance the priority is how to apply the moral of the first story.

Building your house on sand is like building your life based on your own rational understanding, your limited sensory perception and your limited experience.    When trouble comes, you are easily shaken, frustrated and confused.

Build on the rocks, my friend, and the sand will follow.
