What Two Ingredients Put You Into Flow?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

These last three months, I have not been in Flow. Before I tell you about the two special ingredients of Flow, which I am so glad I remembered I want to tell you my journey.

My consciousness has been getting more alert and I feel I can see more. Some truly spectacular things have been happening for me, and yet it has been a very jerky ride. One day things are great. The next day, or moment, things are upside down again.

Usually, when I am in the flow, my life feels magical. Reality seems to actually become pliable. This life these last three months? Not so much. Yet I have made huge strides in clarity, self-confidence, boundaries, speaking my truth, and the most wonderful thing is that I have dropped a huge amount of reactivity. I am more authentic, powerful, and straightforward. And with this empowerment a few darker areas of my consciousness came to light.

These High Octane Times
Here’s what I’m thinking. We are in times when things are shifting big time. If you can stay tuned in, tapped in, turned on to life, your awareness will expand and you see multiple dimensions of possibility.

But making this shift is a challenge. Whatever is not alive and awake comes up and grabs you and says “Wake up!” It is not fun getting those wake up calls. But the potential is phenomenal and the energy is here for us to transform exponentially. The energy will propel us forward powerfully. Of course when we hit a snag, it feels like running into a tree when we have been going 100 miles an hour.

For a while in this high octane energy field, I got lost in some depression, some nostalgia during the holidays, and having poor health for at two months.

So what did I do? I read, relaxed, tried to get well, and worked my emotional process. I got somewhat lost in the feelings, though I trusted the process and knew it would lead me forward.

Remembering at Last
This morning I was inspired to relisten to a seven minute video Vishen Lahkiani, CEO of a personal growth company called MindValley. He reminded me of those essential ingredients to the state of flow and four states of mind in his video Flow, The Paradox of Intention and Four States of Mind. I thought you might enjoy his perspective.

Four States of Mind
Vishen identifies these four states of those people who are business owners and follow the Law of Attraction. Vishen has developed this concept over a couple of years and says the Flow is the 4th step. Here is a description of each state, and the name I call them.

1. Misery or Survival

        You are completely unhappy right now –

2. Comfort of Current Reality.

        You are happy, content, but you have no vision. ‘Let’s all hang out in Bliss.’ –

3. Stress and Anxiety

        You have great dream and visions, but unhappy because they are not there yet –

4. Flow

        When you are happy now, you have a vision and are happy with the journey –

While I was working my process, I had gotten lost in the Stress and Anxiety State of Mind. And sometimes that’s just natural. I was looking at a core pattern that I want to transform. This pattern has deep roots, has operated for my lifetime, and had a very dark piece that came into being to protect an innocent child.

This journey into Stress and Anxiety was an intentional act of courage to look at a core wound I have so that I can transmute this pattern and restore my connection with “Who I really Am.” I just got bogged down in the survival vibrations along the way.

Two Ingredients to Flow
So what are the two ingredients to restore myself to Flow? According to Vishen I need to:

    Be happy now (before I reach my dream).
    Have the vision of where I am headed.

So happiness is part of the journey not the destination. This balancing of happiness right in this moment, while aspiring for something we want or are dreaming about is something Esther Hicks calls The Gap in the Law of Attraction work.

Vishen is saying “Get rid of Stress and Anxiety while you are on the journey.” And that my friends are what we are called to do right now in these times. It is not always easy, but it is incredibly fulfilling. See Journeying Through the Gap.

Ways to Stay Happy
We need to put systems in place to help us be happy along the way. Here is Vishen’s list of practices to keep ourselves happy. I link to past blog entries that are my input on these practices.

1. Meditation.

Meditate into a New State of Being
Meditate. Why?

2. Guided Visualization –

3. Intention Setting. Esther Hicks calls this process Segment Intending. You can set an intention for this moment, this day, this year, or this particular segment of time – like when you pick up a phone call.

6. Gratitude

Remembering and Forgetting
So now I am reminded that I just went down the emotional scale temporarily (even if part of it was on purpose), got lost in a survival state of mind. I ‘m reminded of the practices that I can take to restore my equilibrium. Here are some resources

Survival Thinking

State

Flow

Flowing or Bumping

Last month I worked on my Vision Board for 2015. So I am very clear about my vision this year. I just had forgotten to be happy along the way (even though it is on my Vision Board). I’m reminding myself about ways to go back to being happy. Counting my blessing always makes me feel better.

This journey of living and becoming more conscious is a constant growing and then rebalancing process and sometimes we forget along the way. It’s just natural. And now that I’ve finished this essay, I realize that I knew all this all the time – just as you do too. We’re just human beings doing the best we can. We are constantly Remembering and Forgetting.

Recognize Signs that the Universe Delivers

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

Recognize signs that the Universe delivers when you have asked for something.  Sometimes the evidence is right before your eyes and you haven’t seen it!  You have to LOOK!

You ask in many ways, not just with a conscious thought, prayer, vision board or affirmation.  Something inside you says ‘I want that’ in a very subtle way.  Since my house was foreclosed six years ago, I have often wondered what kind of a house would I like to live in.  When I look through magazines for images for my vision board, I am always attracted to home with yards that have beautiful lush landscaping with flowering shrubs and groundcovers. I clip them out and put them on my image box for when I work next with a vision board.

Last year, when I decided to settle down after my extended road trip, I asked the Universe to deliver my new home on a platter. I did not want to work hard to find it. And it came, just as I asked. It came easily and effortlessly. I should also have asked that it be as easy and effortless to live here, but that is another story (smile).

One of the things I love about the complex where I live is the beautiful grounds.  The Pacific Northwest is very different from the upper Midwest. Trees and plants are very different. When I moved to this part of the country. I felt inept because I knew so little about the plants that grow here. In this community, one of the things I do to contribute my monthly hours, is to help outside with weeding. My neighbor next door has planted much of what I so admire. As I work outside, Gigi shares her knowledge. She recently took me to a nursery to find some shrubs to replace all the weeds that were in the rock garden that I cleaned out.

Now as I walk about our 35 homes, I recognize various plants, and realize I am gathering knowledge that I had wanted about what kinds of plants thrive here.

A couple of days ago, I was just rocked to my core. I have just spent four or five weeks doing some intensive gardening. I love it. I love the beauty that results. Gratitude for being here and for the loveliness of my home bubbles out of me. My epiphany was that while I had been appreciating the beauty, I had not realized that I had received what I had asked for. I was not really comprehending that the physical beauty of these grounds has been what I wanted, and was in fact had asked for as I would collect magazines of buildings with beautiful grounds.  The home isn’t the one in the magazine. The grounds aren’t exactly like the pictures of what I cut out. But the essence I received was what I wanted and more.  It is so easy to miss it even though it was in front of my face.  I missed it because I hadn’t been purposely including it in my request. Busy gathering pictures that fed my soul, then doing my participation work here, I didn’t see that where I now lived echoed the lushly landscaped beauty of all the photos that I had been drawn to in the past.

I have been living and working with these grounds for over a year. I have very much appreciated the grounds. The part that I either missed or forgot, was that I asked for a home in a beautiful environment with lovely grounds.

It is important to look at your life and your past and see when your desires have manifest. Then really soak it in.  I think what happened as I have gardened is that I have been soaking in the reality in a way that my body and mind could understand. Then I could finally see that the Universe very lovingly added this beautiful landscaped dwelling when I asked for my place to be delivered.

We live in times that are potent, and taxing. I’m gardening because it brings peace to me. Now as I wander around our complex, walking the dogs or just looking at the beauty, I feel so awed that the angels and managers of the Universe were so precise when helping me.

It helps shore up my faith, and sooth my spirit to be able to walk and let my eyes feast on such an array of beauty.

And now I am learning how to create those kinds of grounds myself. Tomorrow I am off to find some gorgeous groundcovers. Who would have thought?

So how about adding another piece to your spiritual practice?  Look to find and recognize when and where the Universe delivers.

P.S. The Universe can be quite literal. There is a Law of Attraction teacher who tells the story of having cut out a gorgeous modern house and placed it on his vision board. Time went by. He moved several times.  Then one day a few months after another move, his five year old son was poking in a box that sat in his office and said “what’s this Daddy?” So he pulls out the poster and it was the old vision board. “Daddy, why is our house in this picture?” He looked closer and his body flooded with chill bumps.  He was sitting in the exact house whose picture he had placed on the vision board five or six years earlier.
