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 –

Imagination and the Law of Success
Prosperity Secret of 17 Seconds.

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.

4. Inspirational Readings or videos:

Personalized Inspirational Quotes
Flow or Not to Flow, That is the Question

6. Gratitude

Recognize Signs the Universe Delivers

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
Raise your Vibration and Go Up the Emotional Scale
Survival and Contracting
Dreams and Survival Thinking

Vision
Dare to Dream
Vision and the Law of Success

State
Understanding Your State
Shift Your State
Meditate to a New State
Journeying through the Gap

Happiness
Law of Success Strategies
The Secret to Optimism, Success, Positive Attitude, and Being Happy

Flow
To Flow or Not to Flow, That is the Question
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.

Intention and the Law of Success

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Intention and the Law of Success are intricately related.  Intention sets the mode of how you interact in the world both your interior world and your exterior world.  When you connect with intent, you move into a more proactive way of thinking and being.  Intention gives you something to move towards.

When you live your life without a goal or an intention, you are in a more passive state of being, especially inside.  When you set an intent, it is as though you gather yourself and focus it towards what you intend. To be successful and cooperate with the Law of Success, you want to be moving in a direction of that which you want.

This may sound subtle, but it is very profound.  Let me tell you a story that recently happened but gave me a huge epiphany.  Two twenty somethings and two older adults sat together having a conversation about how to make a mobile phone operate.  Matthew said “What I don’t understand is why no one is willing to experiment by playing on their phone, nothing bad is going to happen if you press a picture or key.”

The two older adults looked at each other, and at the young couple and said with horror.  “We were trained not to play with things, we could mess it up.” A long conversation continued about the differences in the approaches of the two generations towards technology.  My generation is afraid to try in the event they may mess things up.  Those who grew up with it have fun, engage with curiosity, observe, and are never passive. They interact with it and watch what happens.  They learn, they experiment, they try something different. This is a very active process that they are engaged in.

They do not sit in their armchairs waiting for the how to instructions to fall in their lap. They ask questions of themselves like “I wonder what will happen if I do this. I wonder if my camera has this function, where would I go to look? I wonder what this little icon means, let me activate it and see what happens.”

This young couple are active. They have the intent of understanding the tools they are using, having fun with it, and having it serve them at full capacity.  My generation possibly has the intent of just getting the thing to act like a phone – a flawed intent at best, because phones are designed to be far more than phones these days.

The intent that one holds when learning to use one’s cell phone drives how the cell phone is used (or not used).

That is how important intent is.  It serves as an activator, an initiator of action.  When we engage with something, we mobilize the resources inside of ourselves, and the result is going to be success unless we give up. When you just keep going for the goal, you will get there, unless you give up.  My generation often gets tired, frustrated and gives up trying to make their phone work. They just do enough to get by.

This observation absolutely unnerved me, and has changed how I interact with my technology now.  I don’t want to just get by.

My intent is to be successful. To be successful, I must engage. I must set my rudder that will send me in a direction towards what I want. The Laws of Success demand that you engage.

Set an intention today. This is January of a new year. This year I intend to become more technically sufficient because it will bring me more success and help the people who read my work. What is your intent for this year? I also intend to develop more kindness and caring with people. I intend to make more money this year. I intend to add videos and audios to my website this year. I intend to give more to the people who come to this website by writing books, newsletters, and emails.

We are in new territory in our cultures. I intend to be the best I can be, to give the best of myself that I can, and to help usher in these new ways of being by helping people empower themselves and their lives. Every act counts.  What do you intend to do and have this year? Engage the Law of Success in your life by setting intentions.

I intend to finish my vision board this week.  I invite you to create a vision board as well.  My daughter is going to create a vision board on Pinterest so she will have all the images available on the web. I love that idea.

Find out how to do a Vision Board by clicking here.

Burning Desires and Burning Goals access our Intention in a very concentrated form.

Mobilize yourself by setting an intention and move in the direction of what you want by engaging in the Law of Success. Best wishes for your success this year.

Setting Daily Intention

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Setting a Daily Intention

Setting a Daily Intention is a practice that I have recently taken up. I read the book Choose Brilliant Health and it has become one of my top ten books. Rick Foster and Gregg Hicks look at the mental steps that people who have had health challenges take to become healthier. They describe three kinds of intentions; Daily, Moment to Moment and Core Intentions. Setting my Daily Intention is becoming one of my most favorite practices.

When I wake in the morning, before I open my eyes, I reflect upon the day, and review what I know I will do. I go into a quiet state – somewhat meditative, contemplative, and somewhat imaginative. I bring all those qualities into a focus and say to myself. “Today I intend to carry a feeling of well-being and joy. Today it is my intention to meet my son for lunch and be as present and heart-centered as I can. Today, I intend to carry happiness with me. Today, I intend to have something wonderful and unexpected enhance my experience. Today I intend to see signs of Synchronicity and Source operating in my life. Today I intend to savor every moment. Today I intend that packing and traveling will go easily and effortlessly.”

This morning I woke from a dream where I was getting a review from some friends, and they were so complimentary, but Douglas (who has already passed on) said to me. “I disagree. I don’t think you are meditating enough and you are not allowing enough of your genius to come through you.”

So it is my intent to now add to me daily practice these words “Today I intend to meditate. I intend to allow my genius to emerge into my life.”

While in that state, I see myself doing what I am saying. I imagine my day, if you will, before it happens. I recently traveled to Minneapolis, and had some concerns about meetings that I would have there. So I imagined my day and set my intention to have positive outcomes for these meetings.

Every day that I did this Daily Intention Practice, I felt as though I had a special cushion of energy that supported me throughout the day. And the days were spectacularly successful. When I forgot to do this practice in the morning, I would rapidly find out, because the day was not filled with ease. When I remember early in the day, I just stop, and take the time right then and there to do my Daily Intention for the rest of the day.

In each session of the Daily Intention Practice, I make it specific for that particular day. I remember the different things I will be doing, and I make a specific intention for each one of them. Sometimes I make it like a prayer, or add in a prayer for specific people. What I know to be true is that my life is more blessed when I used this Daily Intention Practice. I intend for certain qualities to accompany me through the day. That may be self-compassion, connection and caring; self-confidence, success, tenderness, clear-sightedness or whatever I feel is called for in the situations that I may face. This practice has become my version of the Prosperity Secret Create Your Day. I urge you to try it, if only for a minute or two. You are giving yourself the suggestion of how you are intending to create your day and your life. And the Universe cooperates.

Write It and It will Appear

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Write it down, and it will happen, so says law of attraction and law of success.

Have you ever found a set of goals that you wrote some years ago and found that some or many have happened? A lot is happening behind the scenes when we write something down.

First, we are placing focus on an intention. Usually as we write about our intent, we detail it, and perhaps imagine what our goal may look or feel like to us when it has happened.

Second, we put ourselves on alert. According to Henriette Anne Klauser,

Writing down your dreams and aspirations is like hanging up a sign that says, “Open for Business.” Or, as my friend Elaine puts it, by writing it down, you declare yourself in the game. Putting it on paper alerts the part of your brain known as the reticular activating system to join you in the play.”

You start subconsciously filtering what you see, hear and experience alerting yourself to anything related to what you wrote about.

Third, we put the Universe on alert that we are wanting something pretty specific. Synchonicity brings events circumstances and people to us related to what we have been writing about.

You’ll naturally be attracted to articles, books, songs, conversations about your goal.

I have been thinking of being open to have a romantic partner. When I dream at night, sometimes the dreams respond in literal and comic terms. Out pops this dream one night that said to me that my goals around partnering are stunted. That was helpful and it was funny. It let me know that I need to do some better imagining about what I would like in this partner.

Perhaps I will write to my partner about how much I am looking forward to meeting him and what fun we will have together. And I will keep on doing my personal work to be the kind of self that would attract my partner. My self-confident, humorous, generous self seems shadowed a bit by some old anger. So I’ll clean that up as I get clearer about the kind of partner I want to be, and the kind of partner I wish for.

In the meantime, I write to record the physical dreams I receive. I write to flesh out the dreams I have of the future, and I write to help myself imagine myself as a partner. Writing it down will make it happen.

Intention

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Intention is a key ingredient in the law of success. To have intent means to have the desire and commitment to something. When we hold an intention, we are activating a set point around a goal or a desire. The intention acts like a magnetic pole. Our thoughts begin clustering around the intention. The universe then begins to respond to the intention and synchronistic events and connections occur.

My daughter loves horses and has ridden for many years. She wanted to become a working student for a horse trainer and live on a horse ranch. A year or two ago, she made that intention. I didn’t know how it would happen. We were in a new state, did not know anyone who had horses.

Two years later, through a series of connections, a friend of hers told her about a working student position. She took the position, and then moved with the trainer back to the horse farm. Her intention was magnetic. Intention is a force to be reckoned with.

Holding an intention will help you focus on your commitment. My daughter intended on becoming a working student who lived on a horse farm. She is now living that dream.

Happiness works that way as well. So does success. “I intend to be happy today. I intend to have a successful day.” These sentences can be combined with a few minutes of visualization, and you most likely will have a happy and successful day. Law of Success uses intention in many ways. We will write more articles about intention and the Law of Success.

In the meantime, intend to have safe driving journeys and good food today. Intend to have positive thoughts about the people you love. It makes you feel really good.

You can apply Intention in many areas of your life. I use then when I do a process called 17 Seconds, and I especially use them at the beginning of each New Year when I create a Vision Board.  See the below links.
