Go with the flow.....

Do you really want to go with it?! [/wp-fontastic]

“Let go” …. “Go with the flow” … I get it – don’t resist what is going on. If I am resisting … I am giving it my attention … If I’m giving it my attention … then I am actually calling it to me!

I’m pretty good with going with the flow… even when it isn’t going where I want it to.

  • This isn’t a big deal….
  • Things always work out for me…
  • Even if I’m not seeing it right now … I know there is an opportunity here for me…
  • What can I appreciate right now?
  • How can I experience this differently?

These are all great statements, questions that help me readjust within the flow.


Last week we were in San Francisco … While we had a fantastic time there were a few very interesting scenarios we had to deal with! And I was going with the flow ….

And then the day we were leaving our flight got delayed because of fog and we were informed we were going to miss our connecting flight back to NY. OK … I’m flowing? ;)? Then they tell us there are no more connecting flights back to Albany NY! ?The best they could do was get us into Philadelphia at 10:30pm and the connecting flight was at 7:35am. OK … I’m struggling a bit with this flow!? 😯

We got on the flight to Philly. On the flight they had online wifi! See things are getting better! We hook in – it was $6 for 1 hour … this is so cool to be able to get on the internet while flying about!

First I searched for a flight leaving Philly to Albany … but that wasn’t going to happen. So I did the next best thing I looked and booked a hotel that was close by and had free airport shuttle 24/7! Yes … flowing a bit better.

When we got back to the airport in the morning … our flight to Albany was delayed. No I am not kidding!! But luckily it was only for about 35 minutes. This flow keeps bumping about.

Commander of the Flow…

As the plane took off and we were on our way home I started thinking about all this “going with the flow” … and then I thought “I don’t want to go with the flow – I want to be the Commander of the flow!” …. And immediately I got back this info: “You are the Commander of the flow …. so tell it where to go

I got truthbumps (goosebumps)! It’s true isn’t it … We are indeed the commander of the flow. Our vibration commands the flow we attract to us. For me I realized while I was using the above tools … I was getting a bit exasperated – I was really feeling like the flow was taking me where ever it wanted to!

How often do we say we are going with the flow and then feel like a victim in that flow?!

Feeling like a victim is going to keep me in victim-flow! This was a great experience for me (see I knew there were opportunities in there somewhere) ?…. I was able to up my awareness level.

Going with the flow is not about giving up… it is not about getting bashed about … it is not about being a victim! It is about using those tools above and being aware that you are indeed the Commander of Your Flow … So Tell it Where to Go!?? 😀

I’m always excited to hear your thoughts, comments, questions …. So please join the conversation below!? 🙂

I love your point of view <3

Interesting…..never thought of it this way before and have to let it settle in. First reaction was struggle when you command the flow – did not feel easy. I think of letting go of the oars and making peace with the flow. However, while in the flow, we CAN always change our vibration which puts us in command. Hmmm……

Hi Casey … Good to *see* you here! <3

Carol — Yes! There is a fine line here… Commanding could be struggle – maybe it is more as the Director of the Flow! 😀
So the most important piece is paying attention to how I feel and not feeling like I have no say in the flow! 😉

So often I feel that I too go with the flow because it is comfortable and I often just relax into it thinking I don’t have a choice so just go along with whatever is “happening to me”. Well other times I am instilled with an energy when I resist the temptation to just take the comfortable approach and instead take action to change the direction of whatever is happening in the moment. I am much more comfortable after all when I am making a decision that is better for me in the immediate and that leads to long term happiness.

Hi Roxanne –
Yes! So often we forget that the flow is about our own vibration. Feeling like we don’t have a choice … is not a positive feeling for me. Being aware that I can direct this flow … I like that feeling much betterer!! 😉
