I’ve been thinking a lot about flow. Flow is abundance, abundance means “overflow,” but etymologically shows a wave coming down.
Flow can feel big–huge, in fact–when we don’t want it. It often feels too-small when we do want what it’s bringing us.
And this right here is the secret I am unfolding for myself and thus for you my readers about abundance:
We don’t get to choose the flow.
We get to choose how open we are to flow.
I was totally stunned by this. All this time, I’ve been focused on cultivating abundance through RAISING CLARITY. Well, clarity has finally been raised: we cultivate abundance by cultivating openness to whatever abundance is bringing us.
That’s not palatable, it’s not popular, but it is practical: to receive more, open more. To everything.
So now my question:
how are you blocking flow?
how are you unblocking flow?
How open are you generally to what life brings you?
How open are you to what life is bringing you right now?
Can you see what’s in the way of becoming more open?
You may have been growing your very own tree right in the middle of your river.
(See the photo above.)
It might be quite a beautiful tree. You may have lavished love on this tree.
But if it is blocking your flow, I suggest to you it is in the wrong place.
Dams can be made of many things.
We get used to flow skirting around them.
Then we wonder why we don’t have more abundance.
I will look at this more closely with you very soon.
