Going with the FLOW is such an important concept when we want to experience success.  Our own natural flow is where all of our creativity and energy lies.  If you are disconnected from your flow it’s almost impossible to accomplish things and feel successful.

So how do you connect with and become aware of your own natural flow?  I like to recommend to my clients that they begin a little practice of scoring their days.  Just take a calendar – I’m sure you have one somewhere – and begin to note – once per day – the score of the day – your energy level that is.

Let’s say today you are feeling REALLY energized – on a scale of 1-10 – write down the number for today – let’s say it’s 8.  Tomorrow you may feel a little MORE energized so you’d record 9 for the day.  Monday perhaps you are feeling really exhausted and just can’t seem to get out of your own way – this would be a 1 or a 2 day.  Now score your days for about 6 – 8 weeks (I like 60 days myself because you can really begin to see a pattern with that much data). 

Once you’ve accumulated the data you can begin to notice and become aware of your own natural ebbs and flows of energy.

So lets say you notice that at the beginning and the end of the month you feel like you could take on the world.  Those are the times to schedule your big meetings, to plan your lunch dates with friends, to host a dinner party, to launch your big project and often when we are flowing at the 8-10 zone it’s all of these things happening at once.

Notice again that perhaps during the middle days of the month (let’s say the 12th to the 17th as an example) you are really in the 1 2 3 zone.  This is the time for REST!!! Reflection, recharging, revitalizing and reenergizing is what you’d put on your planner.  Stay in, say NO to requests for your time and energy, take care of yourself, book a nurturing body work appointment – perhaps a massage or a reiki or maybe a sound therapy or shamanic healing treatment, or maybe a visit to a Day Spa for a facial, manicure, pedicure or a new hair cut.  During this time it’s all about refilling your well.

It’s up to you to be aware of your own flow and more importantly to HONOR it!  Don’t do 10 things on a 2 day.  Be patient with yourself and welcome the nurturing time – I’ve found we have a much harder time listening to Spirit (and our bodies) when we are getting the STOP or SLOW DOWN signal then we do when we get the YES!! GO!!! IT’S TIME TO MOVE!! signal.  When we can welcome, honor and celebrate either signal then we are really coming into a place of balance and from there you can’t help but be a success!
