Swimming Downstream - Part 2

Photo by Trey Ratcliff
In Swimming Downstream, we were discussing the path of least resistance and inherent beliefs about struggling with respect to achieving goals and living our dreams.

We left off trying to find the balance between doing what we know needs to be done and finding the path of least resistance, which would make it easier for us to do those things.

Finding the Flow
It isn't hard to find your flow at all.  Pick an area and notice where you are naturally pulled.  Don't think about what you should be doing.  Don't think about what you have to do.  Don't judge it.  Just simply notice what you would like to do.  

For example, when you come home from work, what would you like to do?  Don't think about having to fix dinner for the family or doing homework.  If you had the night off, where would you want to spend your time?  What is pulling you?  Is it the tv to catch up on your shows?  Finishing that novel that you haven't had time to read?  Maybe it's working on a painting or some other craft project or going for a walk around your neighborhood?  What feels good to you?  

Where Things Get Tricky
The tricky part about the Path of Least Resistance are our thoughts and feelings about it.  We love the idea of things being easy.  It is a relief when something is easy, but then our doubts come into play.  We have been taught that easy should be questioned.  What happens when something that you thought would be difficult turns out to be easy?  Do you find yourself second guessing how easy it was?   How many of you have ever said, "This is too easy.  It's too good to be true...", or "this can't possibly be this easy..."?

The First Step
The idea here is that we want to be able to accept and allow ease in our lives.  We want to swim downstream when it comes to our goals and all of the things that we want for ourselves.  In order to move into that existence, the first thing for us to do is to get comfortable with easy.  

You can't remain in the flow if you are unconsciously uncomfortable with things feeling easy.  If that is how you feel, you will constantly question anything that feels easy.  You will feel ashamed when things come easy to you and you will feel the need to defend yourself against the judgment of others and also your own thoughts.  

Tap Along
As many of you know, I frequently practice Emotional Freedom Technique, which has helped me in countless ways, some of which you can read here and here.

Below is an EFT tap along video that I hope will help you in allowing miracles to happen in your life (with ease):

Lights. Camera. Action.
What are some things that you have tried that have helped you feel more comfortable with ease?  What are some things that you would like to try?

Did you tap along with the video?  How did you feel after it was finished?   Have you noticed any miracles lately??  :-)

I'm looking forward to hearing your responses and, as always, your comments can help each and every one us in this community.
