How To Practice Going With the Flow
Letting Go . . .
The two hardest aspects of going with the flow for me are letting go of control and letting in the unexpected!
Why is it so hard to let go of control? I know some of it has to do with human nature. That surrender and then release. Let alone just let go and go with the flow more!
Really try to not just FREAK OUT! Especially when life throws you a curve ball!
Do we hold on to things? Physically, mentally, emotionally. All that stuff we think we need and cannot do with out. All that stuff we think we need to be attached to. You have to know when to let go, especially if something is not working for your or serving your best interests!
Letting In . . .
I really try to take away the practicing and the learning with letting in the unexpected! Being curious instead of anxious. Tuning into your surroundings and what is taking place around you. Being in the present moment and focusing in on the task at hand. Knowing when to pause or even stop to reflect instead of just reacting!
Listening to your inner voice and letting your heart and intuition guide you!
Embracing change is not an easy process! However, the little changes slowly turn into major changes and life transitions.
Being . . .
The greatest lesson I have learned is allowing people, things, situations, etc. just to be at times! Sometimes trying to control just backfires. I feel so much better about myself and my whole being is happier and healthier!
I use to think in terms of what is right and the need for perfection. Letting go of the ego and the attitude. Now I think in terms of how to be a kinder and more patient being! Embracing a little humbleness and humility.
Stop the limiting beliefs, the blame game, the pity party, the self defeating self talk, complaining, excuses, etc., etc., etc. You limit your personal growth and gaining life experiences.
You CAN DO! Especially when you come from a place of love and from the heart instead of letting your mind take control over you. Being in the present moment helps too. You cannot live in the past or long for the future. Living your life is about journeying along and being open to the possibilities and opportunities that you are presented while on your path!
