In the flow. How to create Meditative flow states.

Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force.

Inspire or Activate Flow States?

Can you create a flow state in meditation when you don’t feel inspired?  Busy? Distracted? Unfocused? Waiting to be inspired to take action? 

Use meditation to re-set and re-focus. While inspiration is an incredible state that accelerates results and allows us to work at a high level, it is possible to step into a creative flow state through ACTION. 

Meditative flow states begin with taking a single deep breath. Close you eyes and allow yourself to relax. Visualize yourself moving forward, inspired and step into the energy of that state. 

This same energy can be translated into action in projects and life outside of a meditation session. 

Just pick up that pen, that paint brush and begin.  Small steps can activate more focus and inspire creative juices to flow. Before you know it, you are swept into a creative flow state and things begin to come together elegantly. 

 

Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”

Authenticity of the Present Moment.

There is power in the present moment. Create from this space. Meditate on the present moment. Add sensory detail and allow yourself to observe it.  As we  expand the moment, we expand the potential, the creativity and the flow of the energy in that state.  

No longer stuck “trying to meditate” or visualize, we can shift away from the resistance to another more creative place of meditation.  Let your focus activate energy. Let the energy inspire creative thoughts, visualization and movement forward.  Meditation can be a flow state if you let it inspire you to relax, rest, and re-set by authentically adding it to your favourite sports  and making it “portable” to be used anywhere you need it.  

Energy and Inspired Momentum.

Your energy levels can influence meditation sessions. 

Tired?  Maybe you will just fall asleep? 

A busy mind? Maybe the lack of focus is what interrupts your sessions and has convinced you that meditation isn’t for you. 

 Go with the flow. Inspire momentum by adapting your sessions to where you are and your energy levels. 

For instance, if you are feeling exhausted, allow yourself to be inspired by a session that heals and offers deep rest. Use your breath to relax. Allow your body to relax ,rest and re-set.  Short deep relaxation sessions can restore energy levels and focus. 

 Feeling unfocused and distracted? Try observing repetitive movement such as noticing each step, and how it connects to the next one, in a walking meditation. This can strengthen focus and inspire a mental re-set.  If you can, walk outside. Let the sunlight and fresh air clear brain fog and energize your body with each deep breath. 

Pressed by deadlines and short “windows of opportunity” to relax? Try visualizing yourself rested and focused. Imagine the energy imprint of that state and step into that being-ness just for a moment. It will offer you new insight into what meditations can be “energetically” and how profoundly adaptable they are to what you need in the moment. 

 

Meditations can be tailored to who you are. Blessed by knowing your “life” and demands, it is possible to give yourself freedom through different approaches to meditation. When you “Go with the flow” meditation becomes more powerful and meaningful. 

 

Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.

Meditation is love's nourishment.
