There are many ways to approach the mastery of our mental and emotional selves. Much has been written about the various methods that address the management, transformation, and integration of our psychological selves.
Here are two simple, easy to use methods for you to try to create more flow in your bodymind and life. The first is to begin to ask yourself on a regular basis throughout your day if THIS (activity, thought, feeling) builds or depletes your energy. The “THIS” that you are asking the question about can be a mental process, an emotional pattern or a choice about a person, place or thing. Asking this question helps to increase your self-awareness in regard to the choices you are making and thus helps to empower you to act more often on your own behalf rather than unconsciously giving your energy away.
The other technique is to regularly give yourself some time to relax and imagine that you are entering a river that appears still as you are simply viewing it. However, once you enter the river and let yourself float with it, it will become clear that there is a flow, a direction that the river is moving in. Allow yourself to feel flowing with the river and experience the ease and peace that develop as you let go into the rhythm of the water. Stay as long as you like with this experience. Over time you will find that this pleasant exercise is installing a felt sense of flow deep within your core. Once you become accustomed to it you can tap back into it during the day as needed or wanted.
There is so much angst in the world. If we are to be part of the change we would like to see externally, we need to begin by creating a dynamic inner space of harmony from which to live. Once you establish flow, strength, courage, and the ability to take conscious well thought out action can emerge naturally.
There is a stream of energy, of well-being; peace and love available to all of us as we embody our spiritual nature, blend it with our humanness even as we learn to live from a higher perspective. Part of our power is the ability to choose to clear the obstacles to access, embody, experience and live from that stream more reliably. The gift for our efforts is the beauty and grace developed within and the quiet joy that takes up resonance in our core. It is then that we create a different kind of reality and ripple effect out to the world.
