We’ve all heard the expression “go with the flow.”
But what does it really mean?
This concept of being “in flow” is present in many if not most spiritual traditions, ancient as well as modern. The Bible talks about it, and so does nearly every other spiritual text.
Think of it as being in a constantly moving river, like a leaf floating along. The river knows where it is going, heading out to sea, where it will join the larger body of water and become one with it.
If we are like the leaf, floating along happily, then all is well. But if we are like a rock, then we don’t get anywhere, and the water just flows over and around us anyway. It’s going to flow whether we’re there or not.
Well, dear one, that river is love. It is grace. It loves us unconditionally and supports us whether we want it to or not.
It is infinite, and it is everywhere. All we have to do is become aware of it, and let it support us and help us thrive.
Why do bad things happen, then?
They happen when we are not aware — when we are rocks in the stream rather than leaves floating blissfully along. When we resist.
When we’re in the right state of mind, everything goes much more smoothly because we’re in a state of grace.
How can we tell when we’re in that state? Our emotions are the key. If we feel good, calm, centered, peaceful, and happy, then we are floating along like the leaf. If we feel angry, sad, bored, fearful, etc., then we are not.
It’s that simple!
When we’re in a state of grace, that helps those around us to be in it, too. The more of us who can “get our minds right,” the more likely we are to be able to fix the troubles and injustices currently plaguing our planet.
For me, part of that process of “getting our minds right” is eating Micronized Purple Rice. I believe it actually helps to raise our vibration. I know it has done that for me, and many other people as well.
It does so by helping our mitochondria get more ATP, or cellular energy.
It takes 60 pounds of 2,000-year-old heirloom purple rice from Thailand to make one pound of this powerful food.
It goes right to the heart of each cell (the mitochondria) which then produces ATP light energy so the body can heal itself.
Because it is so tiny, it can get into any cells, no matter how damaged, and can even cross the blood-brain barrier. Our energized ATP is then able to repair and revitalize cells throughout our bodies.
We need to nourish our bodies with the highest-vibration foods we can find, in order to raise our own vibration.
And we need to avoid foods that lower our vibration — including processed foods, and animals that have been raised in an unkind way.
With that in mind, here are six things you can do to nourish your spiritual awareness:
1. Try a heart chakra meditation.
The heart chakra is very important, because it connects our lower and higher chakras. It connects the individual to the collective, and helps to spread awareness of love to all.
A daily 5-minute heart chakra meditation will help you open your heart to the abundant love that is everywhere, and will make you a more loving, kind, and compassionate person.
There are heart chakra meditations online — just search for that phrase. Or, you can do it on your own. Just sit quietly and envision a glowing, emerald-green light emanating from your heart, spreading throughout your body and out into the whole world. Breathe deeply and focus on your breath as you do.
2. Focus on gratitude.
Just the act of feeling grateful raises your vibration and helps you become the leaf, floating blissfully along.
When you focus on feeling grateful for all the beauty around you, what you are focusing on is love.
3. Let go of fear, anger, and resentment.
When you hold on to negative feelings, you lower your vibration. Stay present, focused on the here and now.
Dismiss any grudges.
To do this, it helps to think compassionately about other people’s pain. People may have hurt you grievously, but it was because of their own pain and lack of self-awareness.
Be compassionate toward them. Forgive them, and forgive yourself for holding a grudge. Let that painful memory dissolve.
4. Think of love as an action verb.
There are different kinds of love, including the universal love we are all surrounded by. But the kind I’m talking about here is an action verb.
Notice those around you. Notice their pain. Do whatever you can to make their load a little lighter. Sometimes something as simple as a genuine smile or a kind word can really brighten someone’s day.
Always think of this mantra with everyone around you: “What can I do to make this person’s life easier or more pleasant?”
5. Practice kindness.
Be generous with friends, family, and strangers alike. “Pay it forward” whenever you can.
By changing our habits, we can make the world a kinder, gentler, more compassionate, and much more peaceful place.
And always remember the Golden Rule and treat others as you would treat yourself.
6. Focus on service.
Another big part of the process is focusing on others, and service, rather than just on our own needs.
If you need to do a seemingly unpleasant task, such as picking up garbage, rather than grumbling, think of the service you are doing for others by making their environment cleaner and more pleasant. Feel that green love light emanating from your heart chakra as you do.
But before we can serve others, or at least simultaneously, we need to nourish our own body and soul.
We put on our own oxygen mask before helping anyone else, because if we don’t, we might pass out while trying to help them.
It’s the same with nourishing our spiritual health, which is entwined with our physical health. They go hand in hand. Micronized Purple Rice helps with both.
