I know in my journey I sought to find what lights me up. Even the words in that sentence are pointers- ‘sought’ and ‘to find’- ha! My mind trying to do it’s job, but one can not seek to find what it already is. The seeking looks outside of what is already there, what is already you. So more succinct questions or pointers I could have asked myself are ‘when do I find myself in the flow? and how am I holding myself back from living this?’
The flow feels full from the inside out. It feels like ease, like downstream. It feels like acting freely, no need to obtain anything but to give fully that which I am. It feels light, it feels like connection, openness, joy, expansion and love. The kind of Love that transcends human mind. A vibrational state where you match this love, you are this love. Big Love.
This flow is not to be hijacked by the mind who likes to place meaning on things. To be in the flow does not mean you need to be anything, nor does it mean it’s always easy or that you need to be always a particular way of being. The flow is everywhere, when you are living with awareness you are empowered to navigate with alignment, one with the flow of the currents on an ever expanding journey.
When do YOU find yourself in the flow? This is a huge hint about your purpose, your passion. For your purpose lies in who you are being. Who do you find yourself being when you are in this state?
Many people I speak with have no idea what they really love. As we get older many of us have succumbed to conditioning and accepted limiting beliefs about ourselves, for example- I can’t do that, I’m not good enough, I lack…, I have to be like… etc. For me it was all of these- and more! We can become lost in the veil of forgetting. Forgetting that the real us is the child that looked at the world in awe, in wonder, with the eyes of Love. The child that was present to each moment, beyond time, playful, free and not ruled by adopted subconscious beliefs. The being that believed anything was possible and that magic existed.
That magic state is ‘the flow’. Feel your flow. Be aware of how you are feeling. When you feel that glow, that warmth, it feels like home. If you don’t feel like that about anything in your life or only for short periods then it’s time to move beyond your complacency zone, step towards something new, face a fear, be spontaneous, jolt yourself out of routine and into the fuller expression of yourself and life that wants to move through you, as you. All it takes is one moment, to see your life from the eyes of awareness, the bigger you that transcends your human suit. Life teaches, life grows you, just like the natural world around us. This is our nature. The only thing stopping you from realising limitless potential, and feeling the flow as you move through life, is you. So if you feel like something more, step up. Be open to the power that flows through you and you will experience the ever deepening magic that is your life.
With a light like that, you light up the world.
“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
