If you are out of alignment, it is very difficult to make good decisions for yourself or to be there for others. It can also make it very hard to know how to proceed in your life in the best, most positive way.
Imagine that you are lost in the woods. It can be almost impossible to find your way out of the forest from your vantage point on the ground. You find yourself walking around in circles, exhausting yourself getting nowhere. But if you came across a tower you could climb so you could see well above the trees, it would be far easier to get your bearings and know how to proceed to find your way out, in the most direct and easy way possible.
Getting into an alignment with Source, with your highest self, whether through meditation, or any other form of connection that feels good to you, is like climbing that tower. If you can get yourselves into a higher, more expanded vantage point first, and then make choices, any decision you make from that space will only support your highest good and what you really wish to experience. ~Archangel Gabriel
