For a while now I have been mindfully practicing going with the flow, allowing, and not
forcing directing acting like I’m in charge so much. My life, sanity, and peace have improved, I highly recommend it!
I’ve learned that it doesn’t mean I give up responsibility or direction, it means I show up for life and co-create. And there’s more going on here than only what I bring.
Isn’t it interesting how we often come to these turning and learning points in our lives due to a
problem issue discomfort?
Recently I’m struggling again, but in a newish way. What do we do when we are flowing, but we begin to seriously question if we can continue in the direction that we are flowing with? When we realize our vessel in this metaphorical river has changed from a favored canoe into an emergency life raft?
Maybe the company we work with is shifting their priorities. Perhaps the organization we volunteer for is changing their focus. Could be a friend is becoming an energy vampire. I’m talking about after we’ve signed on for committees, task forces, and leadership roles to help with the big picture, and we find the direction remains unaffected.
Discomfort makes us take a closer look at ourselves, and reevaluate. Maybe I make a difference on a level I am unaware of, and the best thing I can do is carry on and go with the flow. Could be that I’m meant to expand at this time, and the best thing I can do is to flow in a new direction. How are we to know which way the flow goes?
What if the best thing we can do in these situations is surrender? I thought I had, as I shared at the beginning of this post–but I am learning that there is another layer to this flow thing.
And about direction, there is no incorrect choice. In fact, I am not being asked to even make a choice. I visualize an open-hearted Me that surrenders to each day–moment even–with great love, inviting possibilities. I think I’ll even call her Flo.
This was a very interesting book of action! Oftentimes this type is theory and history, with less emphasis on actual procedure. Although background is given, emphasis is on what an individual can actually go and do with this learning. I especially like that the author, Eldon Taylor, constantly reaffirms that the individual is fully in charge of themselves at all times: the power goes to the Self in self-hypnosis, not the teacher or anyone else.
This book comes with an accompanying cd, which has helpful tracks for self-hypnosis. There is a text list of affirmations included in the two subliminal recordings, which I appreciated.
Unexpectedly, this book has an entire section on helpful tips and how-to’s on creating your own personal self-hypnosis and subliminal audio tracks. That alone is worth this book!
The eBook version is full of links to where a reader can go for the recorded tracks. You can feel very confident that in purchasing the eBook, you are not missing out on the included cd! This was another aspect that I was very appreciative of and that makes a difference in format choice.
If you are looking for supportive positive thinking and messages, this book is very much worth your time and will be a welcome addition to your resources. However, if your interest is in action steps to create and pursue your own recorded personal messages, then immediately get a digital copy of this book. Go right now! I’ll still be here when you get back, and then you can finish reading my disclaimer.
This book was given to me by Hay House in exchange for my honest opinion of it. Nothing subliminal or hypnotic here, folks–I was honestly surprised at how self-empowering its purpose is, and how beyond theory and into personalized action it went.
This is a beautiful book of nine printed wisdom services by Michael Bernard Beckwith, each with an accompanying song version collected on the included cd. It’s a groovin’ dance mix with amazing messages, made more profound in combination with their chapters!
Growing up in church, I remember the sermons as a whole leaving me a little flat. Language that puts people in Inherent Sinner mode leaves no room for escaping that role. I remember thinking, “Okay, that’s your big picture. But what about good advice for living my day today?” The whole Repent-Because-You-Might-Die-Tomorrow didn’t help me with living life today.
As I read this book I was suddenly struck with the realization that this is the teaching I was looking for at that time! The messages such as I Am, there is nothing that needs fixing, and consciously choosing the path of expanding awareness is a welcome and refreshing understanding and support.
Daily advice reminders are there, too: stay away from dangerous people–those who complain, choose victimhood, support things only as they are–because it can very easily rub off. Think from creativity instead of competition, focus on the vibration of things in harmony with your life, and courageously use your unique voice–the world needs what you have to say!
The most profound hit for me was that although I know the messages in the book, I finally started to feel it. May you feel it, too.
I received this book/cd set from Hay House in exchange for my honest opinion of it.
