It was on the bank of a nearby river where I found myself mesmerized … watching the rhythm of the flowing water as it playfully danced.
The current was strong … finding flow around large embedded rocks in some areas and as smooth as butter in others.
The water so transparent … allowing the sight of river stones and earthy river growth below the surface. A beautifully orchestrated balance between air, earth, and water. Flowing and coexisting in harmonious completion.
In appreciating this beautiful musical display before me, my senses were captivated by the river’s melody. My focus on the flowing stream, my breathing matching the ebb and flow of the water.
Feeling so zen and in tune with the beat, I received a clear message from my inner guidance. That whenever possible, choose to go downstream.
To me, this refers to taking the path of least resistance (making my heart sing and dance) in my experiences. Which makes so much sense to me.
For example, if you were in a canoe paddling down the river, there is less resistance in energy going downstream than there is going upstream.
If you were to try to go against the natural flow (something making you feel joyful and light), it takes a significant amount of energy trying to keep up the resistance. Which to me at that point would inspire you to consider what is truly the best path to take.
I choose to take the smoothest course, steady as the beating drum of my heart (can you spot my Disney reference here?). How I know that this is the correct choice for me is by how I immediately feel light and just so good in my entire being once the choice is made!
I’m so grateful for this awareness that I received today! I am also excited to keep practicing this way of being as I continue flowing with the energy along my path to such positive and beautiful abundance!
Sending so much love and virtual hugs to you all, dear friends!
Until next time, peace be with you.
