In many of my writings I point to the importance of allowing yourself to align with Divine order. What is Divine order? It is the Divine unfolding of natural order based on how you accept and what you do to fulfill your Divine purpose. According to the Law of Attraction whatever we predominantly think about and emotionally charge with our beliefs we manifest in our lives. But that is only part of it. The true secret is in balancing your perspective with the Law of Allowance. What is the Law of Allowance? It is the effective ability to release what you desire by expecting its manifestation through complete trust in God. It is releasing your perceived control in ‘how’ things will manifest by consistently checking your ego with the guidance of the Spirit of God.
But what steps must I make to attain alignment with the unfolding of Divine order in actualizing my potential and fulfilling my purpose? The first step is to accept what ‘is’ currently without resolving yourself to accepting that it will always be that way. Effective change requires the maturity to understand where you are and where you ‘feel’ you need to be. Being responsible for actualizing your potential means you effectively make the steps required to traverse the perceived journey. The second step is to reframe the results from the past by consistently placing your attention on your desired result several times each day. Chip away at your programmed mindset by introducing positive reinforcing pictures of the fulfillment of your Divine purpose. When you encounter challenges to this picture it reveals not only what you do not want, but helps you to fine tune what you do want. This process brings you closer and closer to a complete alignment with Divine order.
The third step is to keep affirming what you know is your Divine purpose. This can be accomplished by seeking out a variety of experiences to ‘test’ the waters of your perceived Divine purpose in order to create beliefs that support it. These experiences allow you to contemplate how you will express your purpose. Contemplation is the act of concentrating on a thought and placing it in different scenarios in order to reveal possible outcomes or anticipate a desired outcome. It reveals your preferences in your perception of how you feel things should manifest. It exposes your ego to its own perception that it must control everything (especially how things must happen) in order for you to feel good about your fulfillment of your Divine purpose. When you determine your preferences in how things should happen, it is a form of asking the universe to manifest it that way. Since whatever you ask is always given by the universe, release those preferences to Divine order and the best way for you to fulfill your Divine purpose will manifest automatically. In effect, you are ‘allowing’ the best to come your way by getting out of your own way!
The fourth and final step is to consistently pay attention to your feelings as they are your emotional guide along the journey to complete fulfillment and manifestation of your Divine purpose. Choose to move in the direction where you have feelings of ‘good’ and away from what makes you feel ‘bad’. The universe has a Divine feedback system which responds to your needs, wants, desires and expectations whether you perceive them or not. To attain alignment with whom and what you were created to be you must effectively learn to get out of your own way on a daily basis. The consistent practice of prayer (asking for the fulfillment of your Divine purpose), meditation (seeking by listening to the guidance from the Spirit of God) and service (knocking by giving of your talents and abilities to your world) aligns you with your Divine purpose in divine order every day. Practice makes perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
