Last week I talked about needing the force to overcome obstacles and this seemed to me to be a direct contradiction of those delivering the message of going with the flow. Others seem to talk about going with the flow as acting intuitively and being led by how you feel in that moment – by doing what you want basically. This seemed impractical to me and a sure fire way of ending up homeless or in prison. However, since starting to implement changes to force my way through obstacles I’ve suddenly found new opportunities, new contacts, new information all coming across my path without me even looking for it. I think this is what others are really meaning when they talk about going with the flow. It is very much a flow of information coming into my life as soon as I make a decision to move forward on something. It feels a bit spooky and quite extraordinary at the same time.
For example: as I came to the realisation that I need to be the first priority, the ‘one thing’ that I work on for everything to fall into place, then suddenly practical information of how I can do that has just come my way – like a flood, and it’s different from all the advice I got when I went looking for it – none of which helped because it didn’t take into account the fact that I was sick, working from home and female. I’m not working on what I thought I’d be working on several weeks ago – this blog being an example of me going in a new direction, but as I’m moving forward everything seems to be opening up and opportunities are presenting themselves. Now I’m finally off the launch pad, the rocket is actually becoming possible to steer and I’m starting to feel giddy with excitement about the possibilities ahead.
