All About Flow
Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is famous for his theory on Flow and as one of the pioneers of the scientific study of happiness. He theorizes that happiness is not a fixed state but can be developed as we learn to achieve flow in our lives.
“The best moments usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.”
The flow state is like a moving meditation. Action and awareness merge when we become totally absorbed in what we are doing under certain conditions. It is when we have all the skills necessary and are able to stretch our abilities to meet the challenge. Time seems to fly. It can also feel like there is no time. We lose all distractions of our ego, fear and self-judgmental thoughts, as we immerse ourselves completely in the activity. This state allows the chi (energy) to flow through the individual and support the movement or task.
In a state of flow, a person is engaged in a challenging task, working away, making progress, while being fully absorbed. Activity and lack of self-consciousness are the key elements of flow.

Flow is when you:
- are engaged in a doable task
- are able to focus
- have a clear goal
- receive immediate feedback
- move without worrying
- have a sense of control
- have suspended the sense of self, and
- have temporarily lost a sense of time.
Flow is a very embodied state. You are fully in the present moment. Your left- and right-brain are in balance. You are accessing what some people describe as an altered state of consciousness. But, in fact, you are experience your true nature.
When we focus on a consciously chosen goal, our psychic energy literally “flows” in the direction of that goal. This results in a higher state of consciousness that makes what would seem too difficult effortless and allows us to advance into new achievements in our lives.
When you are in a flow state, you are in your natural state of well-being. It is then that divine order and harmony affects all areas of your life and you may experience:
- harmony and cooperation with everyone around you
- being highly efficient and productive
- doors are opened easily for you
- financial abundance flows easily to you
- physical pains and conditions have disappeared; the body and mind feel balanced.
