As I stepped into the new year, I wanted to focus more on the belief that everything is easy if you allow it. Love is everywhere and all things are working toward my good and the good of all. In order to do this, my goal was to live more in the flow. Living in the flow allows me to let go and trust more. I can give generously and at the same time receive. I do not need to hold onto money, people, agendas, or anything else so tightly anymore. The more that flows into my cup, the more that overflows out of me onto others. I found that this simple journaling practice focused my attention on the flow and built my trust in the ease of allowing.
To try this journaling exercise:
- Create 2 columns in your notebook with one labeled Flow In and one labeled Flow Out.
- Now add to each column. In the first column think: What opportunities, gifts, graces, and people flowed into my life today? Next, try returning to each item in the column to find something that flowed out from you into the world today. Where and to whom did you give your time, money, and energy? (Or try creating the columns in the reverse order…start with whatever is easier for you to notice first.) Note: The columns do not have to be even but likely you will begin to see a reciprocity between what you put out into the world and what you receive.
Think about each time that you take a breath: the flowing of air comes and goes easily through your body without you even thinking about it. My hope for you is that this journaling practice will create a mindset and heartset in you that makes living in the flow as easy as breathing!
