Living Life in the Flow
"The more in harmony you are with the flow of your own existence, the more magical life becomes." ~Adyashanti
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
Are you living your life in the flow right now, or does it feel like you’re rowing upstream against the current? We all know the feeling that represents our life "in the flow." It’s that easy feeling that, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, whomever you’re with, everything is humming along for you. You are moving with the current easily and effortlessly. Things are going your way. Everything is getting resolved, and done so joyfully! It feels so good when things are just flowing this way, and we always want more of it.
Think about it a bit more. Think of a time recently when you felt this way. Were you more lighthearted? Were you smiling and laughing more? Did you feel more energized and focused, more calm? Perhaps you even noticed a greater sense of clear-mindedness during this time. Did you feel better physically? Were others around you more loving and fun to be with?
So, how can you live your life "in the flow" all the time? The answer is quite simple. In fact, the answer is about simplifying your life! No, I don’t mean giving up all your belongings and running away to Bali, or becoming a monk and spending hours meditating every day. Although these alternatives could certainly work as well, the truth is that we can live our busy, exciting lives, and still have them be in that wonderful flow. You’ve likely experienced it at some point in your life, so you know it’s possible. In fact, it's possible to feel this way NOW, and everyday! You just need to understand the simplicity that I am speaking of and be willing to make the simple choice that allows it... the choice of YOU feeling more LOVE.
How do you do this from a practical point of view?
In order to change the flow of your life, to create what you truly desire, you need to change the person that creates it. When you change yourself, everything around you changes. Since you are creating everything, the first step starts with you loving YOU more.
When you feel more love for you, something amazing happens. You feel more confident in yourself and your own personal power. You feel aligned with that loving power that is in you (that is, in fact, the "real you"), and you begin to make things happen more easily than ever before. The feeling of love is the key to developing the confidence that you have the ability to be, do, and have whatever it is that you truly desire. It is the key to you connecting with that power that you already are. This power of love is just waiting for you to tap into it!
Keeping a full "love tank" is the fuel that makes your fun world go around! The more love you feel, the faster things happen. The calmness that this feeling brings is the key to creating what we desire.
Let me give you an example. I have a client who came to me with a history of feeling deep depression and anxiety for many years. She had most recently developed a stomach illness, which is very much associated with depression and anxiety. She was seldom feeling "in the flow".
After just one session, she learned how to successfully alleviate her stomach pain by sending love to (and feeling love for) her stomach. She learned to see it, in her mind, as perfectly healthy. After another session, she used the same technique to eliminate the intense anxiety and depression she had been feeling in just an hour and a half. And the technique allowed her to peacefully fall asleep! She told me her husband was shocked and so happy when he returned, after a few hours away, to find a completely different person than he had left in the morning. Typically, it would have been days/weeks before she would begin to feel better. Her words to me when we talked afterwards were... "It’s miraculous!"
Now, after less than 3 months of intense focus on herself, she is also seeing her most important relationships change in very loving and easy ways. She is completely taken aback and thrilled by these major changes in her life in such a short period of time. They are all a result of her changing herself from the inside out. She is loving herself by choosing more loving thoughts, words, and actions about herself and others.
How incredibly simple love is! Whatever you want, you just have to feel lots of love for yourself and that which you desire. Put a vivid picture in your mind of this outcome, and you will see it happen! So, start feeling love for everyone and everything in your life. Feel love for everything you look at, think about, and speak about (most importantly... you!), so you can maintain a full love tank every day.
Our mind is incredibly powerful. More powerful than we can ever imagine.
Remember, having a full love tank takes us to calm. And when our mind is calm, all of the magic begins!
