When The Flow Becomes A Trickle

When we’re aligned to our journey, we often expect that it will all flow easily. However, what if the flow stops? We all came to a screeching halt with the pandemic. Suddenly something outside of our control was blocking our forward motion. How do we deal with that?   

At that point blame doesn’t work. After all, it’s an infection and we can’t punish it, in fact the reverse appears to be true. However, we can look at what part of its effect we can control. How do we take care of self and each other now? There were practical steps offered such as vitamin C, keeping our distance and washing our hands. All of those things are beneficial even if you don’t fully accept that there’s a pandemic. 

We can be kind and supportive of each other and in so doing we inspire others to do the same. After all, we are all in the same boat. We can look at any habits or attitudes that make us or others small and change them.

How kind are you being to others?

  1. Yⲟu really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually sometһing that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and eҳtremely broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for youг next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!

  2. Actually it isn’t easy at all. Like anything worthwhile it takes practice – and the will to change or at least handle ourselves and others differently. Treating someone as you would like to be treated requires us to be aware of the feelings of others.

    At this time too, there are so many different viewpoints. This is not a time to be right but to be kind. I hope all is well for you

  3. I notice a tendency when flow comes to a trickle to get stuck in confusion. do I do this? do I do that? and this leads me to inaction. It takes some time of inaction and almost flowing with nonflow and allowing nothing to happen, that things slowly start happening again.
    I’m still grappling with the concept of trust, surrender, and allowing vs. control, force, and pushing when flow seems to stop and life requires a pivot or a rest.

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      If there’s no flow then what’s there for us to push? I feel the trickle is a pause allowing us to re-evaluate what we are doing and watch and wait for the energy to build again.
