gallery Finding Your Flow

I have a good friend that always rolls her eyes at me when she asks me “How are you?”

I always respond, “Good. Just going with the flow.”

However, there are many times when the flow is more like swimming against a very strong current. It is in those times I attempt to recognize that I need to take a step back and evaluate what is and not working in my life.

I truly believe that sometimes we need to let go of things to create space for new fresh and positive experiences. It is when we begin to make that space that more good is welcomed into our lives.

The best way to gauge  if you are beginning to swim against the current or moving forward down the stream with all of your ducks in a row.  Is by closing your eyes taking a few breaths, finding a place of neutral, in your mind, then think of one word that would best describe your situation is it love? Money? Success? Abundance?

Now from your place of neutral imagine simply floating which direction are you beginning to move do you need a flotation device to keep you a float or are you floating with ease down the lazy river.

It is a reflective way to check in with yourself to see how you can streamline your goals, desires, and dreams to move in one positive direction working together. If we can begin to recognize our alignment from that neutral position then we can act quicker in streamlining it when we begin to fight the current.

The more negativity we hold onto the harder it is to stay a float moving in one direction. If we can find a way to release that mind-set by learning to maintain a neutrality towards our goals we are more apt to achieve them with a combination of effort and joy.
