Every morning you should wake up looking at something you love… and if possible with someone you love.
It’s one of the best ways to connect to the day, starting out in a space of affinity and harmony with messages of prosperity and happiness all around you.
If you can stay in that space of love all day- a challenge by all means- you’ll be closer to the flow state where your magic springs to life.
Flow states are the “peak performance” times where your fingers fly over the keyboard, the times where you run like the wind and feel like you could keep going forever, it’s when art is simple and your doing of anything you love pours forth from you with passion. Time stands still. You’re in the zone.
You can live in that love-filled flow. You can have much more of that synergy. Living with that kind of connection is a combinaton of faith, peace and meditative bliss. It can feel so far away, but with some simple feng shui, this state of nirvana can be yours very soon!
Here’s a lot of wisdom about what science and popular culture calls “the flow state”. Lance Hickey writes in Huffington Post about “Flow Experiences: The Secret To Ultimate Happiness?” :
“In order for a flow state to occur, you must see the activity as voluntary, enjoyable (intrinsically motivating), and it must require skill and be challenging (but not too challenging) with clear goals towards success. You should feel as though you have control and receive immediate feedback with room for growth. Interestingly, a flow state is characterized by the absence of emotion — a complete loss of self-consciousness. However, in retrospect, the flow activity may be described as enjoyable and even exhilarating! A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that flow is highly correlated with happiness, both subjective and psychological well-being (Cziksentmihalyi, M. 1997, p. 31; Csikszentmihalyi, M. and J. Hunter, 2003, pp. 185-199). Furthermore, it has been found that people who experience a lot of flow in their daily lives also develop other positive traits, such as high concentration, high self-esteem, and even greater health (Hektner, 1996, recounted in Cziksentmihalyi, 1997, pp. 116-125).”
Flow State: it’s all about making a powerful connection to your life in every way.
Where the energy is blocked, we want to run or hide or back away Where the energy is open, we open up and flow.
If you’ve been stuck in some way, you may literally need to flip the script or turn your whole house upside down in a great way in order to find your flow. When I hadn’t been home in a while and finally returned, I had to literally scrub the refrigerator in my house before I could buy groceries. I was mentally blocked toward buying groceries because the refrigerator needed to be deeply cleaned beyond what my eyes could see. I could sense it. You might need to overturn a closet and overhaul your wardrobe, or your beauty routine, or your desk or maybe your pantry or…
You see what I mean. Where you’re stuck, to get to flow things may need to run counter to the direction they’ve been running!
Of course, the key to all flow is making that powerful connection to place that is only passionately possible in clear space.
After all, could you passionately sit down to work in a space that’s overrun with reciepts and unopened bills? Or does this space make you worry, pull your attention and make you feel a sinking feeling inside?
Exactly. You might feel that sinking feeling just reading the words above.
Instead, clear a dramatic amount of space to connect to flow in life-changing ways.
Dramatic space clearing is my most favorite thing to do.
When you don’t just spritz the surface of things or dust lightly, but rather you dig in and take apart the shelves and toss and recycle When you see beyond the moving of things around to organize them and, instead, really clear away what you neither need or want
This is where flow starts to percolate.
Keep that cycle going, and you’ll be living in a world of endlesly prosperous flow.
Every year I run the Catalyst Camp twice. Two big holidays in my life: New Years and Spring Cleaning. Motivation is highest to actually tackle all the clearing and cleaning because a fresh start feels possible.
