Transform Your Life: From Struggle To Flow

By Lisa Murray

In 2003 Britney Spears released an album titled "In The Zone" which debuted at number one in the USA and France, going on to sell over 6 million albums. Her success as a popstar demonstrates she knows how to get her music 'in the zone', but her personal life has been characterized by tabloid filling struggle after struggle. There is a simple lesson here for all of us: In some areas of our life, everything we touch instantly turns to gold, whereas in other areas, there is nothing but misery, stress or disaster. That gap encapsulates the challenge of moving from struggle to flow!

So let's be clear about what struggle is... it is a way of life where everything feels hard, where you never have enough time to do everything you'd like, where your relationships are out of balance, where something bad happens just as you've recovered from the last catastrophe... It is living your life captive to the fears that paralyze your ability to act with confidence.

Struggle is... never having enough, taking the most difficult path, feeling guilty for the good in your life, feeling envy for the successes of others, feeling resentment for what hasn't happened in your life, feeling unhappy with your achievements, making the lives of others unpleasant because you are dissatisfied with your life, needing to make yourself feel good at the expense of others... Struggle is also the feelings of 'I should...', 'I could.....', 'I have to...', 'I don't want to....', 'I must....'. Struggle is self-sabotage!

Contrast this with feeling flow in your life... Sometimes flow can be characterized by synchronicity or manifesting something you desire. Other times it is more like an internal sense of wellbeing which effortlessly delivers peak performance.

I think of flow as the mystical connection with the universe where your energy feels unlimited, where time seems to slow down, where you are allowing and receiving rather than trying. It is a state where your mind is free of impediments, your concentration is laser focused but relaxed and your subconscious is overriding your conscious beliefs. There is no concept of failure anywhere on the horizon! There is perfect synchronization. You are 100% absorbed in performing at a peak level. You are finally 'out of your own way'! You feel immune to pressure. You feel unstoppable. You are in complete control.

So what is happening when you are in a state of flow? You are experiencing mindset mastery. You are tapping into an ancient wiring system which knows how to sidestep your self-limiting beliefs. You are tapping into a higher consciousness which has the knowledge or abilities you seek.

The key to transforming your life from struggle into flow is to be able to access 'flow on demand'. Mastering the subconscious beliefs that keep you stuck will enable you to achieve this state. The reason that this works is that if you are 'in the zone' then you are not experiencing any type of 'fight or flight' response. There is no fear, resistance, attachment to an outcome or negative emotion. Your self-talk has been reprogrammed to keep you in a state of flow, rather than a state of negativity or escape.

Those 300 - 1000 words per minute that you usually throw at yourself (in negative self-talk) are all of a sudden directed towards achieving your desired outcome. Can you imagine the vast difference this will make to your performance and your achievements?

Here are the top 10 beliefs that will align your energy and subconscious more closely with the capacity to allow flow into your life.

  • I know how to live in the flow.
  • I can allow my good to flow to me.
  • I can live without struggle.
  • I know how to tap into the universal energy of flow.
  • I know what it feels like to achieve big things easily and effortlessly.
  • I am willing to receive what I want, without paying the price of pain or suffering.
  • I am aligned with the universe's creative energy.
  • I can release the trauma of failing.
  • I know how to enjoy the journey.
  • I know how to and what it feels like to immerse myself in the moment.
Can you imagine how different your life would be if you were able to live with these beliefs and feelings as the primary energy source of your habits and daily behavior?

Would you love to be able to slip into the feeling of flow whenever you have something important to do, or even, to live in that state moment by moment? To receive your good, you must be present in the moment. Flow is the highest manifestation of the state of being present that you can consciously achieve.

So... What Else Is Possible?
It is possible for you to live your life in flow. It is possible for you to access the resources which will free up your energy, your thoughts, your actions and make this real for you. It is possible for you to change. It is possible for barriers to disintegrate, opportunities to appear as if by magic, ideas to materialize from nowhere, people to help you because they can...

Most of all, it is possible for you to realize your dreams with ease and joy. The only question left is this: When are you going to choose a life of flow, instead of one of struggle?

Everything you need is there waiting for you. The universe can provide everything you can imagine, and more! There is just one more thing you need to know... Nothing happens unless you take action!

Are you unhappy, stressed or weighed down by your life?  If you could wave a magic wand and transform your life...  If you could exchange your everyday struggle for a life where you experience flow and ease in every moment....  Would you?

Unconditional Love

By Owen Waters

The purpose of being human, as we shift into the New Reality, is to learn about heart-centered consciousness.

The universe is, by its very design, filled with the love of the Original Creator. Universal love is the aspect of Original Consciousness which holds Creation together. In the Original Creation, Infinite Being divided its consciousness into two complementary aspects - thought and feeling - and then set them into motion.

The love of the Original Creator forms the very fabric of space. No material thing and no part of "empty" space is devoid of that love. Universal love is literally everywhere. However, the human condition is only affected by this love when it is channeled into the human realm through its use by humans.

We are here on Earth to learn how to translate universal love into human form.

Once universal love has been transformed through the consciousness of any individual human being, it enters the global mind atmosphere of Earth. We all share constant access to this global mind. While we initiate thoughts and feelings on our own, we also receive thoughts and feelings from the global mind. We sometimes alter these by our own thought, sometimes not, and then pass them back into the global mind. In an unconscious way, but not consciously, people are fully telepathic as they receive and transmit thoughts and feelings from and to the global mind atmosphere.

When a person experiences heart-centered consciousness, they radiate a type of consciousness which is very different to basic emotion. Heart-centered consciousness is a state of unconditional love. It is not a product of emotional like or dislike. Once started, nothing in physical reality affects the flow of unconditional love. It is something that just is, regardless of the circumstances.

Unconditional love is something that flows through your heart when you reach up above day-to-day consciousness, then open your heart and just allow it. This heart-centered consciousness always sees the elegant solution to the sorrows that can arise from basic human emotions.

Unconditional love allows, accepts and supports. It is not something you try to do. It just flows when you allow it to enter your heart and take your consciousness above the cares of daily reality and into an expanded vista of awareness.

Each time you radiate unconditional love into the global mind atmosphere, you upgrade the entire human experience, taking humanity yet one more step into the unfolding New Reality.

Unconditionally Loving, Living On Purpose

By Brad Swift

Let's start with a playful riddle. What does a dog and God have in common besides the same letters in the words?

Answer: Unconditional love. At least that's what I've heard all my life. Of course, you can probably tell I'm a dog lover as well as a lover of God. And if you were offended by the riddle, I invite you to get over it. God loves a good joke and even allows the bad ones. How come? Well, it all goes back to unconditional love. The God force that makes up this universe loves unconditionally -- that means without limits, judgment or bias. God loves the bad joke teller as well as the rest of the human race -- equally. That's unconditional love.

But what does unconditional love have to do with living and loving on purpose? Everything. Here's how we describe the relationship that exists between unconditional love and your true life purpose in the Life On Purpose Process. As the Purpose Process was originally coming to me or perhaps to be more accurate I should say through me, I realized that I was looking for the basic elements that could be blended together that would consistently result in a life purpose with 3 primary properties.

The first property was that the life purpose would be a powerful shaping force in the person's life. In other words, it would be able to shape that person as they went through each moment of their life doing whatever they were doing. The second property was that the life purpose would be long lasting and enduring. In other words, it should be able to last a life time. And the third property was that, while it would be powerful and enduring, it would at the same time be flexible. What I mean by that is that it would still give the person ample room to play and fully express themselves as their life purpose.

With these 3 properties in mind, what I realized next is that there were also 3 basic elements that, when blended together, would consistently result in life purposes with these properties. Those 3 elements are:

A person's unique vision of what's possible in their life and in the world,
A unique set of core values -- those intangibles of life that mean the most to that person, and
An essence of who the person is. Their 'beingness' as the level of their soul.

I have found through the years with hundreds and thousands of people that when these 3 elements are identified and then blended together, what is consistently produced is a powerful, life shaping purpose which is long lasting yet flexible.

But what about unconditional love? That actually came a bit later, during a complimentary coaching session with a first time client. It was one of those wonderful coaching sessions in which the client and the coach were transformed, as was the Life On Purpose Process. The client was Faith Meenan, who has gone on to become a Life On Purpose Certified Coach, Coaches Development Program leader, and an integral part of the Life On Purpose faculty.

On that memorable day, Faith made the comment that it appeared that what these three elements had in common was the love of God, and as we all know the love of God is unconditional. In other words, the very foundation from which our life purposes arise is from the universal attractive force of unconditional love. From this foundation arises each person's unique sense of what's possible, their unique set of core values and the very essence of what they are at the level of their soul.

I remember the two of us sniffling over the phone as we both dried our eyes, being so moved by this realization. And I knew in that moment that the Life On Purpose Process had been transformed and taken to a new depth. I have also realized since that time that my own purpose and mission in life was transformed as well. That what I most want for all of humanity is for us all to be able to get in touch with that foundation of unconditional love and to stay connected to that life enhancing energy. And when we do that, we will truly be living and loving in a world on purpose.

Dr. W. Bradford Swift is Founder of the Life On Purpose Institute, and author of Life On Purpose: 6 Passages to an Inspired Life. The Institute's vision is: a world on purpose, with people living lives of purposeful, passionate and playful service, of mindful abundance balanced with simplicity, and spiritual serenity.





Your Morning Coffee

Say yes to what is. Say yes to what can be. Say
yes to beauty. Say yes to truth.
You won't accomplish anything by striving against reality. The
fastest way to grow stronger and more effective is by acceptance of
what is.
There is overwhelming goodness and richness in life if you will
just see it. There is fulfillment and joy in every direction if you
will just let it be.
By all means, take an active role in life. And let that active
role begin with saying yes.
Say yes to this day, to this moment, to this very situation as it
now is. And you will unlock a real and abiding value that pulls you
ever upward.
Your word is all you have,So keep your promises.
Life can be unfair, confusing, discouraging, and
filled with all sorts of unexpected factors. Yet even in the most
difficult situations, achievements of every kind are most assuredly
within your reach.
Decide what you intend to do, and get clear on the specifics of
what that involves. Then get going, and don't stop until you're
Even when you're discouraged, you can still put one foot in front
of another. Even when distractions beg for your attention, you can
choose to remain focused on the task at hand.
Even when setbacks come, there is a way to keep going. Even when
you make a mistake, or a whole series of them, you can learn from
what you've done and go forward from there.
Anything can provide you with a good excuse to give up. Yet
nothing can stop you when you choose to keep going.
What do you truly want in your life right now? Decide what you
intend to do, and know that you can make it happen
Don't let life pass you by.
"What if, instead of demanding that life were different, you
simply set out to make it better by virtue of your own attitude and
actions? What if, instead of placing limitations on your happiness,
and holding it hostage until certain conditions were met, you simply
let that happiness happen?
Imagine how life
would be if you didn't have to worry about getting things or losing
them. Imagine what you could accomplish if you could spend your time
free of anger, frustration, and regret.
Think of all the
places you could go if you didn't have to first ask permission from
your own ego. Consider how much energy you would have if you were
free from every anxiety.
Such a life is
possible, and it is closer than you may think. In fact, the very act
of visualizing it begins to make it happen.
Because your ego,
your attitude, your anxieties, your frustrations, angers and regrets
are all creatures of your own making. And you can choose just
exactly how they will be.
Visualize a life
of freedom, fulfillment, meaning and richness. Hold on to that
vision and you will begin to make it be."
"I never said it
would be easy,
I said it would be worth it!"- Gail

Think Happy Thoughts

Happy thoughts are part of our lives. In an average day it is
estimated that we have around 60,000 thoughts. Have you ever
wondered how many of these thoughts are happy thoughts?
It is known that happy people think more happy thoughts than unhappy
people. If we think happy thoughts... we create happy perceptions...
we create a beautiful aura of light around ourselves... which leads
us to happy events. And so we create a exciting circle (where we
become even happier).
Happy thoughts connect us with the light, confidence and courage to
act... to the power to believe. To live our lives according to our
hopes and dreams not somebody else´s.
Jealous, angry and fearful thoughts and feelings take us away from
our own path... our own purpose. But a straight path doesn´t admit
compromises. This negative thoughts strip us of our power and
ability to act effectively. If we think fearful thoughts we become
afraid and act defensively. This pushes away other people and other
possibilities away from us. And so we become lonelier and more
The route to a happier life is through happy thoughts. Not just
because they make you feel better immediately... but because happier
thoughts give you a stronger and more stable foundation to your
life. You are in control rather than being bounced around by life.




Abundance Prayer


"Dear God, provider of all Abundance, Prosperity, Perfect Health and all good things, I am open to receiving and welcome perfect health and all abundance in every way and every day so that I may be of greater service to you. Thank you for the financial abundance that flows, according to your Will, to me to pay for all of my bills, expenses and much more, beginning now!"

In my heart, I accept my perfect Being.

I accept that the joy that I have intended is already in my life.

I accept that the love I have prayed for is already within me.

I accept that the peace I have asked for is already my reality.

I accept that the abundance I have sought already fills my life.

In my truth, I accept my perfect Being.
I take responsibility for my own creations,
And all things that are within my life.
I acknowledge the power of Spirit that
is within me,
And know that all things are as they should be.

In my wisdom, I accept my perfect Being.
My lessons have been carefully chosen by my Self,

And now I walk through them in full experience.
My path takes me on a sacred journey with Divine purpose.

My experiences become part of All That Is.

In my knowingness, I accept my perfect Being.

In this moment, I sit in my golden chair
And know that I Am an angel of light.
I look upon the golden tray - the gift of Spirit. -
And know that all of my desires already have been fulfilled.

In love for my Self, I accept my perfect Being.
I cast no judgment or burdens upon my Self.
I accept that everything in my past was given in love.

I accept that everything in this moment comes from love.

I accept that everything in my future will result in greater love.

In my Being, I accept my perfection.
And so it is.

Lessons on Life

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said no, it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because hey had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that
come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, and the fulfillment of your fall.

Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest.
Don't judge life by one difficult season.
Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later.

Quote Of The Week


"When you cannot trust God, you cannot trust anything; and when you cannot trust anything you get the condition of the world as it is today."







Some have said that those who have nothing to die for also have nothing for which to live; others hold life itself sacrosanct. Is there anything for which you would sacrifice your life? What are your feelings around those who would answer in the reverse?

Is there anything for which you would give up your life?




You Have Wings
Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly!




Learn To Be Quiet
Franz Kafka

You need not do anything.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
You need not even listen, just wait.
You need not even wait,
just learn to be quiet, still and solitary.
And the world will freely offer itself to you unmasked.
It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.




Well, we come to the end of yet another newsletter.....may you all have a wonderful week and stay safe!

In Love and Light Always,


Founder of United In Spirit  Love Struck Rose
