Hi Guys. Hey, how are you? Carl and Caroline here. And we are on our way to Adina’s birthday. Her, her birthday was last week, but we’re going to celebrate a bunch of friends come into the house in New York. And uh, so we’re in the car, it’s raining today as you can see, but we wanted to come with our message today, which is How to Get Better at Trusting You’re in Alignment. So we’re going to continue our, our series here, a little mini series on, on alignment. So how to get better at trusting that. So in alignment with… she’s wobbling here. Um, so when in alignment, so what are you getting in alignment? Let’s talk about alignment with your dream. Let’s talk about alignment with your purpose in life, okay. So the first step to that, so before even trusting that, the first step is knowing what that dream is, right?
So what do you need to do is you need to blueprint it. Like if you went to an architect and said, build me a lovely house, build me my dream house. They’re going to look at you funny and say, well, what is that for you? It’s very specific to you. So you want to blueprint it, and write this down? Clarity is power. You want to be as clear as possible in writing and designing the life you would love to live in all domains of life. So be as clear as possible. That’s the first step. The second step is now, okay, we have this dream, how do I know that this dream is worthy of me? Okay, not that I’m worthy of the dream that’s opposite. How do I know that this dream is worthy of me? It’s big enough for me, for who I am.
And we have a way to test the dream. There’s five questions that we pose to test the dream and Caroline is going to read each question and we’re going to explain it. So what’s the first question? Yes. The question is, does your dream give you life? Does your dream give you life? Now this is absolutely critical, right? Because anything you do in life should give you life. It should be expansive, not contractive. It should not be taking away from your life. So does my dream give me life? Does it excite me? Does it wake me up, does drive me out of bed in the morning? You want an absolute resounding yes to that question? What’s the second question? What’s the second question? Is Does your dream align with your core values? Ah, does your dream align with your core values? Well, what are your core values?
That’s a good question. Find out what your core values are. Now some people are like, oh my dream is to have a Lamborghini. That’s great. You know, um, but I have three kids at home. Um, you know, a couple of them are going to be gone to college, but so it doesn’t align with my family values of getting my kids, raising them well, getting him into good schools and stuff. But I want a Lamborghini, well, maybe it’s not aligning right now with my core values, right? So does it align with my core values? Know what your core values are. Do some research on it. Integrity, honesty, you know, love, growth. What are those core values? So does it align with my core values? That has to be a resounding yes. What’s the test question? Is your dream going to require that you grow? Does your dream require…
Will your dream require that you grow? Because if you’re in your status quo, if you’re not growing, that’s not a dream. You’re, you’re, you’re in your safe zone. You’re not growing. Your dream should require that you, it should be a stretch because again, if you knew every step, if you had a goal and you knew every step on how to get to that goal, it could be a worthy goal. But it’s not a dream because you know how to get there. It requires that you stretch. It requires that you grow. Push past your growing edge… you want to push through your green growing edge. Right. From the moment we are born to the moment we die, we should always be expanding. We should always be. That’s, that’s the pull of life, right? It’s like a blade of grass will push itself through cement seeking the light.
That’s the pull of life that’s within this. That’s the breath that, that, you know, that’s the life itself is the breath that we’re breathing. So that’s the third one. That’s the fourth question. Um, okay. Fourth question. Do you need help from a higher power? Do you need help from a higher power? Should be resounding yes. Because a dream, if it’s worthy of you, if it’s big enough, you’re not going to know how to get there. So we’re not gonna focus on the How. We’re going to focus on the What, and we’re going to say, I don’t know how to get there, but I’m going to, I’m going to take my baby steps. I’m gonna hold that vision of that dream. I’m gonna move toward that dream as that dream moves toward me, I’m going to come from that dream, but I know I need help from a higher power, absolutly, there has to be a resounding yes.
Because if not, it’s just a human goal, right? It’s just, it just something that you know or you know how to do, right. So you need something that’s bigger, requires help from a higher power. And what’s the fifth and last question. Alright. Is there good in your dream for others? That’s a biggie. So is there good in your dream for others? It’s not all about you. Okay. Especially when, you all know that, if you have kids, we have kids, it’s not about you anymore. Right? Um, it’s funny cause when, when, um, when Adina went into labor with Sophia, I woke up that morning. I didn’t know she was in labor. I woke up that morning with the lyrics of the song: It’s the end of the world as you know it. Right? Because you know, Spirit was telling me it’s the end of the world as you know it because you, you, because it’s no longer about you.
It’s no longer about you. It’s about other people. And that’s why we’re here. I mean I know I’m here, I’m here to serve others. That’s what God put on my heart. That’s what the Bible teaches. That’s what a lot of spiritual wisdom teaches us, is that we here to lift everybody up, right? So is there good in it for others? In everything that you do with passion, with love, there will be good in it for others, even if part of your dream is to find love, right? You say, well, it’s good for me. It’s good for my, my partner. But how is it good for anybody else? Well, if you’ve ever seen a couple in public and you know that they’re in love, you can feel that they’re in love, the way they look at each other, the energy between them, the way they hold their hands, their whole, the way they are between each other does not, not lift you up.
Does that not feel, make you feel good, and, and enjoy life by observing that it’s inspiring, right? And it’s contagious. So there is good in it for others, right? So if you go back and say, okay, how can I trust that I’m in alignment with my dream? Clarity on your dream, know exactly what you want. Put all the details as much details as possible. The feeling tone step into that dream and then test that dream with these five questions. That’s how you trust, you trust that you are in alignment with your dream. You are in alignment in the direction that you’re going. So, um, hope you’re enjoying this little mini series about alignment. We love each other. Love you. We love each other. We love you.
