It’s been a spiritual cliché since the inception of the New Age movement. But perhaps back then, we didn’t truly comprehend the meaning of the phrase ‘going with the flow’.
Many a ‘spiritual ego’ used this phrase to hide from the responsibility of consciously directing their own lives, to make excuses for how life was playing out, and to blindly accept what came into its reality. Back then we believed that “thoughts create our reality”. For many, Meditation became a place to escape to, instead of a conscious and deliberate method to uncover the hidden aspects of ourselves that needed adjustment, or as a tool to evolve our soul.
Times have changed. So has the Universal energy. These infant ideas born in the latter decades of the 20th century are not bad, just now outdated.
What we now know is that BELIEFS create our reality by sending frequency out into the Universe in the form of actions, emotions, thoughts and words. If we don’t know what our beliefs are, we are unconsciously creating a universe that ‘flows’ unconscious experiences back to us.
We now know that WE have created these experiences, and that WE ARE the Universe!
We also know that we have full responsibility for the life experiences that flow back into our reality. This can be a confronting and pretty scary knowing! I have to admit I still sometimes resist the idea that I have created some of the challenges that I’m facing right now. In fact, I write this all down now to remind myself, as much as to help others decipher the lay of the modern day land!
The point is, though, that we ARE in control, not at the mercy of whatever flows to us from a ‘random Universe’, but we need to know what unconscious beliefs are impeding our flow. Side note: we are also susceptible to the collective consciousness beliefs – we pick these up like a radar. The mistake we make is believing these are OUR beliefs too. But that’s another article!
Science has also been busy uncovering new and exciting truths about energy and how it all works. Studies of human electromagnetic fields can show that the heart is actually vastly more powerful than the brain, and that the heart even has its own ‘brain’ or neurology which communicates directly with the mind. The two work symbiotically to create our reality, under the guidance of our soul/higher self/divine expression (call it whatever resonates for you).
Quantum and spiritual science talks about the heart being the gateway to healing on all levels, and it is where the spark of consciousness that we are, is initiated. Another side note: in fact, medical science knows the superior importance of the heart – when a fetus is forming from its initiate cells, it is the heart that is formed first and which sparks into activity long before the brain is developed. Surgeons also speak of a ‘phantom node’ – an electromagnetically measurable, but invisible, convergence point of energy at the heart, which in some people, fires into action when the heart’s physical nodes fail to create the signal for the heart to pump! An innate intelligence is present and its gateway appears to be our heart.
What’s it all mean? The energy of our times now demand that we cast off this idea of ‘going with the flow’ and instead BE THE FLOW. To do it, we must get into our hearts.
Plans and structure and the domain of the head is now secondary to the energy of the heart. Don’t get me wrong; make plans, create a structure for your life, take human actions to reinforce the beliefs you wish to uphold. But be prepared to adapt those plans, and FAST! We no longer have the ‘luxury’ of time to build structures and monuments of the mind.
The energy of the collective Universe asks us to be finely tuned in to our own energy, to uncover and ‘make light’ the beliefs we are running below the surface of the mind, to centre ourselves in our hearts, open the gateway to our soul’s guidance, and create our lives from there.
However, we must remember that we are not our mind. We never were. Our mind is merely one of multitudes of superior manifestations of the spark of divine consciousness that we truly are. It is a tool that we may use to formulate, to plan and to manage what flows into our reality.
So when we think of ‘going with the flow’ I’d encourage us all to look at the flow very carefully. Whatever is flowing to us is a reflection, a sample of where our heart lies, and what beliefs we are emitting from our core being. It's not our fault, and it's not good or bad - it's part of what we're here for; to experience humanity and evolve our souls.
We must heal our hearts, purge the pain and return to a state of loving for us to flow out into the universe and allow the flow to be our conscious creation, not an unconscious stream that buffers us against the shore, or which we attempt to swim against with our heads.
The mind is not our creator.
We create the mind.
From the heart!
