Accessing The Flow State – habits that give you access to creative energy

I love that experience of being fully immersed in the task at hand, enjoying the process and having access to creative energy.

In this blog post I share habits and activities we can engage in to help us enter this immersive, timeless space. I’ve also recorded a few of my favorite Tai Chi sequences, which I’m excited to share with you here.

The flow state brings about a merging of the individual (mind, body, soul) and the present moment. When we enter this state, even work no longer feels like work, and challenges become fun puzzles to solve. 

So how can we help ourselves to more regularly access this place where ideas flow freely, and we’re not overcome by feelings such as self-doubt and creativity surges to meet us where we are?

Here are a few methods I use:

  • Engage in activities that provide you with enjoyment and satisfaction – hobbies, artistic pursuits, play, sports
  • Declutter your space – create a supportive environment, make space for inspiration to find you.
  • Movement – dance, run, Yoga, Tai-Chi….
  • Add appreciation to current habits – as you brush your teeth or walk your dog, what can you appreciate?
  • Be mindful –  notice the sounds and sights as you go about your day.
  • Recall memories of being in a flow state – bring to mind past experiences of being in that place and let this fuel you.
  • Spent time in nature – nature can heal our hearts, calm our minds and bring us inspiration.
  • Surround yourself with your own creations or those of others that you love – meditate with these and invite the creativity energy that was present to come join you.

My personal favorite way to enter the flow state is Tai Chi. It also helps me go with the flow and allow what is, stay centered and balanced, move stuck energy and emotions and stay connected to earth and spirit.

Here are a few Tai Chi sequences that the gorgeous beaches of Albufeira, Portugal inspired me to record for you. Both of these are less that 4 minutes long.  I invite you to join me, for some Tai-Chi by the sea.

I invite you to reflect on how you enter this flow state? What habits or activities help you access your creative energy? Feel free to share your experiences and insights in the comments below.
