For further inspiration: The Power of Flow

Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Flow is the natural, effortless unfolding of our life in a way that moves us toward wholeness and harmony. – Meg Lundstrom

May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children. – Rainer Maria Rilke

Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able to trust that there is a river. The river is flowing. We are in it. – Richard Rohr

Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. – Paracelsus

Genius is Omniscience flowing into man. – Wallace D. Wattles

My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed–which is to say that the biochemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely–all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior. – Dr. Candace

By banishing doubt and trusting your intuitive feelings, you clear a space for the power of intention to flow through. – Wayne Dyer

To know oneself is the first step toward making flow a part of one’s entire life.  – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend. – Bruce Lee

Life´s irony is that as soon as worldly goods and worldly success are of no concern to you, the way is open for them to flow to you. – Neal Donald Walsch

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring. – Oscar Wilde

Where attention goes, energy flows. – T. Harv Eker

Of all the virtues we can learn no trait is more useful, more essential for survival, and more likely to improve the quality of life than the ability to transform adversity into an enjoyable challenge. – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Your flow is as tangible and real as any locomotive, and just as powerful. – Robert Genn

A big part of my creative process, as well as life itself, has been learning to let go. Trusting in the creative flow, I have gradually learned to paint from the inside out. – Leslie Tejada

Emotions can block the clear sensing of energy. When you are highly emotional about an issue, it is much more difficult to see your higher path. Before asking the Universe for answers, be sure to find a peaceful, quiet space within yourself for the answers to flow into. – Personal Power Through Awareness / Sanaya Roman

How do you know if you are exerting your own will against the Higher Will? If you are trying to create something and you must struggle, push, and work hard to force things to happen with little result, you are not following the Higher Will. Look for where the energy is flowing, and where the doors are opening, and put your time and energy there. – Spiritual Growth / Sanaya Roman

I felt I was truly in the present moment. We tango dancers strive for this above all else, a zen-like state in which you feel as though the tango is animating your body, that you are effortlessly there with no past and no future. When you are only in the now, you are as purely yourself as you can be. – Sharna Fabiano

  1. Hello Soulfields,

    I find that flow is a natural rhythm that we reli on. I’m at a cross-roads and am finding my flow – blocked. I can honestly say it is incredibly frustrating. But, the frustration will not reignite the flow. I believe there are just moments where flow doesn’t fly freely.

    At these times, it may be a moment to start something else, where the flow might be more compassionate. These are great and meaningful quotes.

    With love, Amanda
