Flow can seem like the Scarlet Pimpernel of awakening, always just around the corner, an evasive freedom.

But actually most of us hit flow multiple times a day. We just don't even spot it.

So, begin with reflecting on your most mountain top experience, then step it down, and keep stepping it down.

Did you drive to the supermarket without any recall of the actual driving? Did you zone out slightly loading a dishwasher or washing up? Did you take a sip of tea (or coffee, or whatever) and feel 'mmmmmmm'? Did you hug a loved one, pet, tree… and have everything else disappear for a split second? Did you work really hard on something challenging or fascinating without getting distracted?

That's all flow.

Here's one example: one day I was making meatballs, and weighing each one to check they were the same, like normal. But this particular day, without trying, each one was within a gramme or two of what I wanted. Over and over.

Here's an even more simple example: every evening before bed I open the back door and take a breath of night air. And every time that single breath transports me for a second. Just a second.

What flow have you found, in the least expected places?

With Love, Sara

    It is simple. But simple doesn’t always come easy when we have a lifetime of conditioning on top. I’m here to help you uncover that simplicity and reconnect with all of who you are.”
