The power of perception, as well as opinions, is that everyone sees the world different. Now of course there are similarities between how some people perceive the world, but those perceptions are still in opposition to another's perspectives. Of course this could be understandable topics such as religion, social justice, war, morality, etc.
But what about someone's perception of you? Furthermore, how are other's responding to you? Because the truth of the matter is, you have no control over how other's perceive you. You have no control over what others think about you. But the energy you give off is real. And if you are aware of the energy you radiate, and the thoughts, obsessions, and fears you are emitting to the universe, do you realize the people in the world around you are just responding?
One way to check is to ask yourself, are my ideals and what I am actually living aligned? Do people see the alignment? Do people respond to the alignment? Or are they responding more to misalignment?
There are few absolutes in life. And one is absolutely human behavior. No human acts a certain way "all the time." Different circumstances and situations can bring up different emotions and reactions out of us, but on AVERAGE, on a primarily consistent basis, ask yourself, do I feel aligned?
Misalignment occurs when there is dissonance or an internal resistance to what you know, what you feel and you do. When you live your life in such a way that most of what you do is not aligned with what you feel or believe, its time to take a look in the mirror.
On this self love walk, do you believe its important to accept yourself, but you truly are speaking constant negative self talk allowed and in private? Are you turning down opportunities because you don't believe in yourself? Are you slightly discouraging the dreams of others? That is misalignment.
What's the solution? Awareness. Acceptance. Owning where you are and ultimately keeping yourself in check by changing your thoughts and behaviors. Because your ideals are different from your actual thoughts. Ideals are grandiose principles but your thoughts are what actually influence your behaviors.
So mind your thoughts because they are shaping your world.
