The Art of Being in the Flow
In January, we all set goals and new behaviors we want to incorporate or let go of as we move through the year.
This year we have been in a state of releasing old behaviors and patterns to make way for the new. This new paradigm is not about pushing against what you don’t want; it is about leveraging your power in how you are aligning with yourself and your inner guidance. When you do this, you are aligning with your flow and then you can relax and attract. Being in the flow is what we are being called forth to integrate during these times of intense change.
This is necessary as we move out of the information age into the intuition age. Your energy impacts not only you, but also the people you are with and the opportunities that come your way.
How does one sustain a frequency of being in the flow? This month I will be blogging about the components of this topic. The first being Energy – when we are in the flow, it impacts and accelerates what we create. When we are resisting and obsessing, these behaviors stop our goals from taking shape.
I will be sharing best practices for how to hold this flow of energy in your body and mind and give you real life examples. There will be simple exercises for how to relax when you are too focused on the goal, so you can flow instead.
I will also be sharing how your energy flow impacts the people you attract and the situations you create. In addition, I will share tools for not taking on the energy of others so you can consistently stay in this place and create a new habit with it.
While we are all learning this new skill, it is important to recognize that this requires patience as we make this transition into this new way of being. I want to share this passage from a book written by a friend of mine, Barbara Flood. The book is called Illumination.
Patience is certainly a virtue, but not one we always understand very well. It is difficult to be patient with the daily events going on in our lives when we are electrified with coffee and stimulants. Practicing patience allows us to be in a state of ease and trust that all will transpire in just the way it is intended. Patience means giving up the impulse to “do something,” and wait for the guidance as to what needs to be done. Without patience, we can find ourselves driving ahead with no particular direction and no clear purpose of what we mean to accomplish.
Waiting is not a passive act but rather a very vibrant pause. In this pause we have the time to listen and to reflect. Our decisions can then draw from a wisdom cultivated by our own practice of patience as well as by the greater wisdom of those who offer us guidance. In this way, the actions we offer are of far greater value. We are not as likely to reflexively react from old patterns or a simplistic understanding. The practice of waiting affords us steadiness and strength. Patience then is a discipline.
Patience allows us to relax and develop trust. May this month offer you opportunities to cultivate the gifts in waiting for all you are in the midst of creating.
