How do you know if your In Flow ?
When your " In flow " every thing you do goes well, your journey to work or the supermarket goes smoothly. Your day goes according to plan, no unexpected hurdles crop up and derails you ! You get unexpected " Wins " throughout the day, like something was reduced in price that you weren't expecting, a parking space becomes available just in the right place for you, things like that. That's when your " In Flow " and it feels great !
Your day goes well, everything goes according to plan.
Nothing annoys or irritates you.
unexpected nice things happen to you, something you buy is on offer or is cheaper.
A parking space is free just where you want to park.
The lunch you just ordered not only looks great but tastes amazing.
people smile and interact with you in a friendly loving manner.
Your optimistic and feel an air of positivity around you.
You can feel energised but also relaxed and calm at the same time.
Life feels good
When your " Stagnating " , it's like your stuck, not going anywhere, doing a lot of procrastination, not getting anything done and feeling pretty miserable and down about it. That's what being "Stagnant " feels like.
When things just aren't happening for you.
You can't get anything done.
You procrastinate about everything.
You feel deflated, flat and non.
You get a feeling of overwhelm, and can't be bothered.
You can't see much of a future ahead of you.
It feels a bit Meh !
When your energy is in a " Reversal " oh ! boy do you know it ! You feel like your being pulled from pillar to post constantly, it's a case of 1 step forwards and 2 steps back. Not getting anywhere in all ares of your life, in fact you feel like someone has attached a big bungee rope to your back and is pulling you backwards all the time. This can feel pretty frustrating to say the least !
Constantly feeling frustrated about everything.
Can't seem to get on top of anything.
Get one task done and then something else comes along and derails everything.
It's a bit like renovating a house, you think you have a few things to do, but end up doing a WHOLE lot more than you expected !
Feels like your going backwards all the time.
Feels like ever decreasing circles,
So, I hope that's explained a little bit about the different states of flow that you can experience, and why sometimes you feel like you do, but don't understand why ! We will look into this a lot deeper in another post, but for now keep aligning to " In Flow ".
