Source Alignment

Category:  Ask Deepak


How do I align with my source and how do I know what it wants for my life? Aren't my dreams and desires what my soul wants for me?


The most effective way to align to your source is with a silent mediation that permits the mind’s activity to go beyond its limitations and experience your core consciousness. That is your source. Your mind with its thoughts and desires becomes aligned with it the more your experience that silent state of awareness. Your soul does express itself through your dreams and desires. But depending upon the clarity of your consciousness, those desires may also be strongly conditioned by past habits, fears, or external stimuli.

  • Para Mirna Guarneros pregunta: ¿Cómo alineo con mi origen y cómo sé lo que quiere para mi vida? ¿No son mis sueños y deseos lo que mi alma quiere para mí? Respuesta: La manera más eficaz para alinear a su fuente es una mediación silenciosa que permite la actividad de la mente de ir más allá de sus limitaciones y la experiencia de su conciencia principal. Esa es su fuente. Tu mente con sus pensamientos y deseos se alinea con él más que su experiencia de ese estado silencioso de la conciencia. Su alma hace expresarse a través de sus sueños y deseos. Sin embargo, dependiendo de la claridad de su conciencia, esos deseos también pueden ser fuertemente condicionadas por los hábitos del pasado, miedos, o estímulos externos. Amor, Deepak - Con Vini Rana.

  • You are cognizing the whole process. This is not something that can be figured out like a puzzle. As you practice meditation, your life changes and you will naturally align with source, you will become grounded in knowing your purpose and will naturally move in this direction.

  • Re-Birth and Renewal With Humility, I take a moment to still myself. I Breathe Six Times and feel the Love of the Uni-Verse embrace me and offer the Grace of Renewal. Deeply I Exhale with each breath and let go of every thought that is not Love. I Breathe and offer Gratitude. I open my heart and feel the lessons of the dove, the dolphin, the butterfly and the phoenix. It is like I am walking on water into the clouds of heaven. I am reminded that Wisdom offers Patience and Fluidity. Love's beginnings are beyond time and serve as an infinite Ocean of Grace that teaches Compassion. Love is meant to flow and has ending. I Breathe and Exhale Deeply. Only Through Love am I offered Re-Birth and Renewal. I Breathe with Gratitude! ---From the New Book Seeker Dreamer: Amazing, Brilliant, Compassionate YOU!

  • Meditation is a tool that works for everyone but in my area of work I find that not everyone is at the place in their life where they are open to it yet. Thats where medARTation is a great way to get the hands involved with creativity & imagination. MedARTation is a form of open eyed meditation & I have seen unruly goddesses in homeless shelters & wayward warriors in prisons engage in this mind slowing, seed sowing practice with heARTwarming results. It is an "open eyed" Meditation.

  • Happy In-Dependence Day. Swa-Rajya is our birthright. Today our mind appears to be dependent on people and situations for how it feels. We are living as victims and slaves to situations and people's behaviours. Are we really independent, or living a life of complete dependency, where a single word from a close one can leave us in pain for hours or even years. When there is an external stimulus, a situation or someone's words, we react automatically without being fully aware of the choices we have to respond or of the consequences of our reactions. We think on an autopilot and then blame others for how we feel. Freedom is being capable of choosing our thoughts and feelings and responding in every situation without being conditioned by external factors or the negative tendencies of our personality. In-Dependence means dependent only on the One Inside. Dependent on the qualities of the inner being, Soul, the qualities of love, peace, power and purity. The more we start using our qualities and strengths; we will experience liberation from hurt, anger and pain. The more we become In-Dependence, our dependence on outer situations and people will start reducing. We will become the master of our thoughts, feelings , emotions, words and actions. We will take complete responsibility of how we are feeling and not blame anyone for it. This is Swarajya, which means Swa (Self) par Rajya (ruler), ruler over the self, ruler over the mind and sense organs. Each of us has the power to experience this Swarajya. Today, let's free ourselves from our old patterns of thinking and behaving, clean past hurt, resolve conflicts, let go of everything that we have held on to which only addicted us to pain. Freedom is just one thought away. Let's create that thought today.
