Follow the Energy ~ Go with the FlowNovember 30, 2013
The path of the conscious creator is to become mindful, tune in and connect to one's awareness - by following the energy. You don't create from effort, force or coercion in order to generate a desire. It's actually all about applying the old adage, "go with the flow". Ease and JOY and grace just come naturally if you follow the energy ... explicitly.
How do you determine which path to take when you come to a fork in the road on your passage through life? Do you go into your head and analyze each choice with the pros and cons, charts and graphs, etc. until you can make an informed decision that 'appears' to be the right or acceptable answer? Or do you follow the energy of each choice with the awareness of how it feels for you - lighter or heavier, JOYful or stressful? In other words, do you follow your heart, your gut, and your intuitive sense as you steer clear of the learned 'shoulds' taken on from family, friends or culture?
Haven't we all had the experience of making a choice from the point of view, 'I should do this' or 'I ought to do that' which did not result in the highest of outcomes? And, yes, of course we learn from those experiences, but it's a much smoother and fun-filled ride when we are able to create from a state of conscious awareness at the outset.
Following the energy is very different from using your mind to figure things out in a linear manner. The linear method of making decisions usually feels heavy because in order to use it, you need to go into judgment, conclusion and either/or. It comes down to how you think it has to show up. You very often cannot conceive of it happening any other way. This line of thinking does not offer any other possibilities.
So what's the alternative? You guessed it - follow the energy! It will never lead you astray. I promise! When you are aligned with the method of following the energy as you go with the flow, you are open to the infinite possibilities that the universe has to offer. And you may find that you have many more options to choose from that are all pretty amazing.
If you have several choices before you, take each one to completion in your imagination and then extend the outcome out to six months, a year, even two years down the road and see how each one makes you feel. Which one creates the most expansive feeling, the greatest possibilities? Which matches the picture of the life you wish to create? Which feels the lightest and the most JOY-filled?
This is living your life from the vantage point of the energy of Source, the Light, All That Is. This energy is something you can talk to, direct and change. Many people don't have any idea of what their life really is about - or what they want it to look like. However, if you start looking at your life as an energy, you begin to have a greater awareness of possibilities, ways to be, and directions you can take. And oh, the wonderful, amazing things you can generate for yourself and the world. You automatically become an example to those who are just waking up. A wonderful consequence or ripple effect of your greater awareness and connection to the energy!
I often have clients who ask my advice about a situation where they are contemplating a change or a new path. I always suggest that we clear any blocks or barriers to the manifestation of their desire, but just as importantly we talk about whether or not a particular choice feels expansive, nourishing, and supportive. Does it speak to their heart and feed their soul? If so, it will always make one feel lighter, brighter, and liberated. It will also guide you to what's right for you and aligned with your unique path - which is synonymous with your purpose, your passion and the happiness you were meant to experience.
Many are often surprised how this simple process of following the energy and really feeling and connecting with it, guides them in more easily attaining clarity and insight as to which path to take, what choice to make in any and every circumstance.
Allow yourself to embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of you as you go with the flow and follow the energy of your life's journey. Remember, that which is true and JOYous for you, may not be the same for anyone else on the planet. Always follow the energy which empowers you, leads you to your Truth, makes you feel lighter and connects you to your JOY. Hallelujah!

Quotes to Ponder
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.
~ Judith McNaught
Don't get in the way of the groove.
I trust the flow of life.
