Everyone has a fundamental right to experience flow

So what does it mean to be ‘in the flow’?  Some say it is a secret to happiness.  Doing what we love effortlessly and with ease…  You can relate to it as a certain sense of ecstasy.  Being in the flow also provides you with greater inner clarity, doing things that needs to be done much more efficiency.

It is a state of awe and wonderment.  Mental state when you don’t feel you are doing your ordinary every day routines.  It is a sense of serenity, where you have no worries about oneself and experiencing yourself growing beyond your boundaries and ego.  You also experience the state of ‘timelessness’ where you are focused in the present moment and nothing but a present moment is more important.

Being present to our intuition, hearing the sounds, stopping at the rose that you wouldn’t stop by. Appreciating sun rays on your skin.  Seeing things in a way no one can.  Being a best friend to yourself…

Desire to change something to something that wasn’t here before.  Noticing people, coming from the nurturing space of caring for another.

Michelle Clark said at Female Leadership Generating Trust and Flow Webinar (watch replay here):

“Everyone has a fundamental right to experience flow”

Mihaly Csikzsentmihalyi in his TED Talk in February 2004 described: “The flow being like an opening door that’s floating in the middle of nowhere and all you have to do is go and turn the handle and open it and let yourself sink into it.  You can’t particularly force yourself through it.  You just have to float.  If there’s any gravitational pull, it is from the outside world trying to keep you back from the door.”

I believe you always have to enjoy what you are doing to be good at it and for it to give you an energy and bring you true wealth.  Transferring your own values into valuables serving others through listening of their needs, often listening between the lines about what is really going on for people around us.  Parking yourself listening from the space of ‘nothingness’ just to be of service to another human being.

Surround yourself with people who’s listening towards you is the one that will always remind you of your own greatness, of who you truly are.

Look for your passion.  What makes you excited?  What turns you on?  What people do you admire?  What kind of person would you like to be?  What is really important in your life?

The fist ‘Purposes of Incorporation’ of Sony (Masaru Ibuka):

“To establish a place of work where engineers can feel the joy of technological innovation, be aware of their mission to society and work to their heart’s content.”

What can you create if you are following your own ‘heart content’ being in your natural flow?  How would you walk?  How would you look.  What would your mornings look like? 

How can we put more and more of our time in a flow?

It’s easy to get hooked on flow. Once you’ve been there, you’ll want to return.
