Why Living in Flow is so Vital...
Symphonies for the Mind is where the Power of Personal Growth meets the Magic & Effectiveness of Meditation which is why the next series of meditations I am creating, will help you experience: Living in Flow.
So why is this so vital, you might be wondering...
Well Dear one, Living in Flow is the same thing as living optimally or living in alignment with your desires, goals and dreams. It's essentially a state of Optimal Functioning, Creative Thinking and almost effortless productivity and who doesn't want more of that?
But here's the thing, humans have been conditioned to believe that life is hard, it's a struggle and you must continually push and claw your way to the front or to the top of whatever pile society has you believing you must climb...and the impact of this is a growing exhaustion, anxiety, sadness, restlessness, overwhelm, unwellness and the list goes on.
Quantum Science shows us that the world and the universe is a constant flow of energy and information. You are a constant flow of energy and information. You are also mostly made of water - over 70% and when water is flowing it is healthy and vibrant! Interesting...
When you are going with the current, especially an internal guiding current, you feel relief. When you are going with the current of life, you tend to feel in alignment. When you are going against the current of life you tend to feel out of alignment.
When we are going with the current of life, we know it because of how we feel - your feelings are your greatest GPS and the practice of meditation begins to heighten your inward connection to your feelings and hence your powerful intuitive senses. The practice of meditation literally begins to shift you from numbed out mode to it's okay to feel mode. We've never really been shown how to do this, effectively and powerfully. Rather, bottle up our emotions and they then blast out of us unproductively and in a way that is not in alignment with our highest selves.
Meditation helps us because it actively connects you to your heart, a powerful intuitive centre within that is being researched extensively by the Heart Math Institute (HMI).
When you feel like you are flowing with the current of life it can feel the same as having been in a very strong current of water where you have been fighting against it (let's call this life) to the point of exhaustion some days and then you Let Go and all of sudden allow the current to take you in the direction of everything you desire. Meditation helps you with the practice of Letting Go, with the practice of flowing with life for this begins from within....it's not an external experience, it's an inward creation.
Letting Go and Living in Flow emotionally translates as inspiration, excitement, passion, appreciation and a feeling like our entire soul is exhaling...
When we go against the flow we know it also because of the way we feel. It will feel internally like Resistance and tension and most of us are living like this 24/7. Going against the flow of life emotionally translates in our bodies to feeling stuck, frustrated, powerless, depressed, anxious and other painful emotional states. You literally feel like everyday you are swimming up stream against a powerful river- we exhaust and stress ourselves and sometimes even drown ourselves.
Living in Flow is about aligning with your own internal currents which is really cool because you are mostly made of water and when we honour what flows within us as Masaru Emoto explains extensively and brilliantly in his mind blowing research - Hidden Messages of Water - our life flows, your desires flow in ways that surprise and amaze you. I will be integrating some of Dr Emoto's powerful wisdoms in the next series of Meditations.
An important aspect of Living in Flow is allowing our emotions to flow through our body - all of our emotions - for when we do, we honour them and the guidance that they are meant to offer. Like water when we do not allow our emotions to flow they become trapped in the body, they stagnate there and eventually make us very unwell.
Being in Flow is about aligning with your own internal circuits. For the most part we have not been shown how to align and connect with our internal circuits which explains why it is so challenging and sometimes impossible for us to answer big questions like:
What do I desire?
What brings me Joy?
What is my soul's purpose?
Sure we're read the "theory" about it - how our emotions are a powerful guidance system but Meditation actively opens up this internal flow, it begins to rewire you, making that internal circuitry accessible. So exciting you are literally creating the state of Aliveness because you are coming to life from within...
The most fulfilled, happy and successful people on this planet are so because they are Living in Flow - what they think, say and do is in alignment with who they are and what they desire so they are living with the current and energy of their own soul and it literally feels like the universe is backing them up.
When you actively create the state of Living in Flow, through Meditation, it is the same as you actively accessing and feeling like the Universe has your back.
So that is what we are going to be working on experiencing through the Meditations in November and December and that Awesome one, will set us up brilliantly for January 2020 - Living our Greatest Vision!
I hope that at this point you are excited out of your sweet pants to keep meditating and Now back to creating your next Meditations on this journey.
