Hello eKa Circle,
This morning my meditation prompt was on flow state. Think about the last time you were engaged in an activity and you felt amazing and simply lost track of the time. You were so focused like a warrior and there was nothing else in your mind that was clouding as a distraction. It was just you and the activity captivated in the joy of the creating; this is flow state. The Spirit HAS to flow! Sadly most don’t quite get that yet and they try to box God in…into systems, restrictions, rituals and into their own understanding- into control. Once you do that though it is the ego ruling yet it is also ego that blocks your FLOW. While it feels like ego is protecting us what we need to feel into is how it also restricts. The ego forges ahead to protect your belief systems and oh how ego just LOVES to be right, this comes at a very high price.
Yep I have some caps going today because I really hope that you can hear me. They are bubbling with excitement caps, just busting to share this with you caps, climbing to the top of the mountain caps! This concept is integral to grasp for your personal growth and your healing journey. No-one can stop this good thing!
Flow state is 100 percent complete surrender. It is LIVING not just existing. Existing clamours to just survive where as flow state is not bound by time or circumstances. God is not bound by time, space or matter, neither is a child of Elohim. A great example I could give you is to ask yourself in every situation “is this small thinking?” Can God speak only one way? Or is this a human restriction due to lack of comprehension? Elohims ways are not our ways. Are our ways limited by our thinking? Often so unimaginative when we are not plugged in to see the bigger picture, it is time to think creatively!
So how can one practise flow?
- Surrender anything that is rooted in fear or dread
- Pull some joy into everything you do
- Choose and organise
- Eliminate internal distractions
- Work at your biological peak time
- Listen to the right kind of music
- Plan to manage your time wisely
- Declutter your mind
- Engage and monitor
- Find your flow triggers
- Stay hydrated
- Create a mental cue
- Expect to see signs and miracles
When a person becomes fully immersed in an activity involved and focussed on every single detail this is when flow state happens. Picture an artist painting. When one achieves this state of joy the ego literally falls away and you are just playing. This is flow state. Co-creation ability requires the mind of a child. No thought to criticism, no thought given to the what if’s, no ear given to your own internal sabotage (the inner critic). Flow needs to become your normal, then you will never be a slave again. Your work life balance will be your joy.
So what happens to the brain in flow state? Did you know that reduced prefrontal cortex activity is a prerequisite for concentration on a task. Less is more when focussed attention is called for, an alpha brainwave state allows for a free flow of information ensuring an effortless execution for the task at hand. You were born to do this! This is the difference between a natural passionate talent and someone else that is forcing or fudging something. The energy sensed by the later will eventually be felt as disingenuous. That is not sustainable.
Ask yourself today “Am I living? Or am I merely existing? What are the reasons for my choices behind career, friendships, partners, belief systems, addictions and purchases? This takes honest reflection. Have you “settled.” Are the dreams even yours or are they someone else’s expectations? Spirit leads to LOVE-do you love what you do? Do you love you?
The Spirit flows on wind, water and fire and there is nothing that can contain the powers in those elements for a reason. Spirit has to flow THROUGH you…this is such an amazing thing as it also affects others around you. How can we encourage this?
7 Activities to achieve Perfect Flow
- Focus on the mind
- Focus on the body
- Leverage your memories
- Observe your thoughts
- Learn to communicate
- Surrender to a lifelong space of learning
- Focus on one task at a time
- Choose faith
Studies reveal that those that practise flow state on a regular basis have lower levels of depression and anxiety. Therefore the lack of flow in ones life sustains anxiety. Flow is associated with subjective well-being, a satisfaction with one’s life and overall general happiness. In a work state flow means productivity, loyalty and motivation. Wow so much better than a slave mentality chained to the desk. Did you know you were born to create; to do what you do in a joyful state. To harness this energy is your destiny. Made in Yahs image. Spirit uses symbols for good reason can you contain a cloud, a waft of incense, a waterfall or a blazing fire, or a strike of lightning? Could the lesson be to release that control and just go with things? Does the artist really control the paint or do they just flow with it?
And so I ask you…is this science, psychology or spirituality? Is this philosophy or is it something much more ancient? Which “box” have you put this knowledge in? Maybe it is indeed wisdom and sits right “above” all of your earthly boxes. The Spirits ways that aren’t fully understood until you surrender ALL. Plug in without any judgement and flow just like a carefree child. Full of faith, full of trust and innocence that you will be provided for.
I was thinking this morning the time between ripe and rotten is but a split second and yet- you will know by the fruit produced and that is surely Spirit lead. You just got used to eating from cold storage and forgot how things were meant to taste.
A proverb- “Guard your heart diligently, for out of it flows the springs of life.”
You are the guardian and you cannot stop a natural spring flow, all you can do is guide where it goes. Choose life not death. It is that simple. Choose a joyful life appreciate the small things. Choose love in what you think, in what you say and in everything that you do. This is the fruit and the spring water that will flow from you if, only you allow it. Guard it well my friend.
love & light
