Moving Back Into the Authentic Flow

Where are you blocking flow in your life? “When you’re living in the flow things happen with ease.  Synchronicity is all around you.  Doors open.  The right people appear and things fall into place.  Just like that.  You have to learn to discern between fear/avoidance and what’s really truly not right for you.”

As I have become more aware in life, I have become more accountable.  There is no more hiding or being in a place of denial.  I love to do the things I love to do, and those tedious things that are usually mundane, detail work, I put off until there’s a cloud of to-do’s following me around.  It really is a great example of how I block myself from my good, from the flow of life. I start to feel less connected, keeping busy with things that I enjoy.  The funny thing is those things I enjoy become less enjoyable.

I literally block my own flow, nutty right?  I can say, Oh, I’m busy.  I have things to take care of.  I can do it tomorrow, and then the next day.  I really can get it done if I want to.  How are we blocking our own flow?  It’s a great question for us to ask ourselves.  It could be limited beliefs, old habits, or a resistance to what’s in front of us.  It’s good for us to know what we want and have intentions and goals to work for.  It’s also important to know what holds us back.

To truly know ourselves and to accept our imperfections, to work on the areas we are ready to shine the light on while loving ourselves through- it’s all key to living an authentic life.  I would be boring without all my quirks, and I have a lot of them.  I have learned to laugh at me as I catch myself being my quirky self.  It is a journey, it’s not about being perfect.  I say that a lot because I think we need to remind ourselves and to take ourselves less serious. To laugh is healing, to laugh at ourselves is therapeutic.  I remember when I gave myself a break and could see the humor in living this human life as a spiritual being, with all my experiences and quirks- it’s funny!

“Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy.”
– Dau Voire

I felt a tremendous shift in my life when I learned to laugh more, to laugh at me, and to take things less serious.  Life offers many gifts and I miss them if I get caught up in my seriousness.  I would get so serious that I had a hard time looking at how I was blocking my good.  Laughter opened me in a big way to be more authentic with me.  It is a blessing to be living right now!  We are all here for a purpose, and I believe a big part of the purpose is to be in joy, lighten up, and learn as we go.  Embrace all of ourselves, and let us be us- authentically special!!

I invite us all to continue to grow as loving beings, to work on ourselves with ease and grace, and a lot of laughter.  Joy is the measure of success, and to be in joy is to accept and appreciate who we are and where we are at- to authentically love ourselves for all that we are.  Writing this is shining the light on an area I’m ready to heal in a bigger way.  As I delve into those things I have been putting off, I think, That was not that bad, it was pretty simple.  I know that procrastination does not serve me where I am today and where I want to go, so with lightheartedness I step into being aware of my actions and patterns.  I love myself as I move into being more accountable to me, take action, and I laugh at my life’s quirkiness.  Let me be me, and you be you!  To quote Dr Seuss, “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day.  It’s about the choice to show up and be real.  The choice to be honest.  The choice to let our true selves be seen.”

“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we are supposed to me and embracing who we are. “
