Are you swimming with the current, or trying your best to fight against it?
Getting into the flow of life is a topic that some people will feel a great deal of resistance to. This idea is often perceived as “giving up” or “doing nothing”. While it may be easy to judge this concept, it goes much deeper than the idea of giving up and becoming stagnant.
I am sure you have heard the term “go with the flow”, this is something my mom used to repeat to me constantly as a child. A great deal of years later, I am finally figuring out what it means.
Getting into the flow of life, means surrendering to a force greater than yourself, and capitalizing on the opportunities that are in alignment with your values and desires along the way.
Clarity is Power.
Living a life of surrender, as Michael A. Singer calls it in his groundbreaking book The Surrender Experiment, means taking what life gives you and pursuing it to the greatest of your abilities. Oftentimes it is the ego that has a very difficult time with the idea of letting go of control.
The first step in living a life in which you align with what you want, and take action on the opportunities that are also in alignment with what you want, is offering clarity, on some level, about whatever life situation it is you would like.
The main reason for succumbing to “shiny object syndrome”, or feeling generally scattered or lost, is due to a lack of knowing which direction it is one wants to aim.
If you don’t know where you’re going, you might not like where you end up is a powerful and relative quote in the process of conspiring with a power beyond yourself to create a new life scenario.
Offer a Clear Intention of what you want.
Being able to offer the intention, then saying “I now turn this desire over to something greater than myself to help me create this in the fastest, most effortless way possible.”
Sometimes you will be given circumstances in which you feel like you are being given the short end of the stick, though this is often a sign that you need to learn, or let go of something.
For example, if someone says they want to become a millionaire, then can’t figure out why they get laid off from their current job position, maybe this is the perfect first step in learning how to increase their income in assisting them to fulfill their goal?
Many of these “coincidences” receive little to no credit, but when you live from a place of deep inner knowingness that life is always happening for you, not to you, you begin to harness a power that is much greater than yourself.
We often hear of the Law of Attraction, which states “that which is like unto itself is drawn”. As you continue to offer the intention of what it is that you want in your life, and continue to take action when you are given and opportunity, you will see over and over again that life is truly conspiring in your favour.
