Tune into Spirit
by Rev. Elizabeth Rowley,

Guitar players adjust the strings of their guitar to a specific tuning.  They do this such that when they play, it will sound a certain way that is pleasing to the ear. They are adjusting the frequency (the vibration speed) so that the strings are in harmony with each other.  When they aren’t in harmony, the sound is wobbly.  When they are in harmony, the sound is smooth and steady.

Setting your intention for the day is quite similar. You get to choose the way you’d like your day to look like such that it is pleasing to you and in calibration with Spirit.  This is a great way to ensure your values and your actions are aligned for your highest good and the greatest good for all.  If you notice a wobble, embrace that wobble, consider your intention, adjust your frequency, and take new actions based on your intention.

For example, if you value being grateful and it is your intention to be tuned into gratitude, then you catch yourself complaining, you’ve got a wobble.   Time to retune yourself by stopping, sitting, and writing a gratitude list. Then continue contemplating that which you are grateful for throughout the day.  Now you’re back in harmony, and your experience is smooth, steady, and in alignment.

Setting your intention is like throwing your hat over the fence and then going to get the hat.  You are no longer a victim to the circumstances and conditions of the world that may arise because that’s not the tuning you’re in. The frequency you’re tuned in to is of the Spirit: love, beauty, perfection, wholeness, peace, compassion, joy, gratitude, and abundance!

Which frequency are you choosing to tune into today?

Many of us have grown accustomed to being at the whim of what happens throughout our day, accepting the tuning of others, reacting in a way that does not serve our highest good.  Isn’t it time to take your power back and use the power of your word to create something magnificent?  This empowers you to respond from your highest self with purpose and intention, rather than react from your conditioned past.

Recognizing the responsibility you have to create a life you genuinely love pulls you into the present moment.  When you have your intention set for the day and are committed to living from that intention, shift happens.

You deserve to be happy, joyous and free. It’s up to you to recognize those thoughts that lead to greater happiness and fulfillment and those that lead to the wobble, then choose wisely.  While you may not be able to change the situations and experiences you face each day, you do have the power to change your reaction to them.  You don’t have to like the situation you’re in, but it’s essential that you like yourself in it.

Try this today by naming the frequency you’re tuning into and expect it to be so.

And so it is.
