JOY AND FLOW

HOW DO YOU FIND JOY AND FLOW IN YOUR LIFE?

IT'S AN INSIDE JOB

It Starts with Being ENOUGH

We live in a world of never being, doing, or having enough. When you lay your head on your pillow at night, how often do you say, “Today I did enough. It was a good day.” I would venture to guess that thoughts are swirling in your head of, I didn’t get enough done. There’s never enough time. Then when you wake up, you face the same feelings of lack and overwhelm.

Not Enoughness Crowds Out Joy.

When you lay your head on your pillow, let go of thoughts of not doing enough. Let go of thoughts of there isn’t enough time. Let go of thoughts of getting it all done. There will always be more to do. Awaken to a new day full of hope and promise knowing what you do tomorrow and each day will be enough.

Cultivating Enoughness Means Cultivating Joy.

Nurture Your Mind, Body, Spirit for Flow

JOY AND FLOW EQUAL WHOLENESS

WE ARE MADE UP OF MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT OUR OWN TRINITY

MIND: Until you learn to control your mind and where you put your attention, you won’t experience more joy and flow in your life. Thoughts of worry, fear, doubt, and not enoughness block joy and flow. That’s where meditation can help in a huge way.

BODY: Joy and flow are optimized by having a healthy, vibrant body. That means getting the proper rest, maintaining a healthy weight, eating nutritious food, and moving your body. (I know the impact this makes first hand, because I suffered from an eating disorder for three decades.)

SPIRIT: In the center of this illustration is YOU. Your true essence is spirit. It’s not your height, your weight, hair color, or what figure is on your W-2, or name and title on your business card.

In the Christian tradition, joy is a fruit of the Spirit, God’s Spirit inside of us. Other fruits are: love, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

You nurture your spirit by communing with nature, through stillness and meditation, contemplative practices, prayer, reading and consuming inspirational material, exercising compassion and acts of kindness to others and yourself (especially).

By paying attention and nurturing all three areas of your being, this allows you to experience wholeness and greater joy and flow in your life.

FLOW IS A MAGICAL, MYSTICAL WAY TO LIVE

FLOW IS LIVING LIFE WITH GREATER EASE.

There are four simple but powerful steps to living your life in flow.

LIVING WITH JOY AND FLOW MEANS
PARTNERING WITH GOD'S SPIRIT

The flow that I am living into is ultimately a spiritual flow. It’s recognizing God’s Spirit merging with our spirits and co-creating a life together.

I am not talking about religion, but a relationship. By letting go and trusting God, real miracles can happen.

We All Need Someone to Believe in Us

I am blessed to have my husband, Robert, who totally believes in me. I also have a loving God who believes in me. That relationship is a two-way street. God believes in you! And I believe in you, too!
