When I Want To Feel Downstream…Let Go and Let God

Posted on May 28, 2009. Filed under: Love | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

When I want to feel downstream there are several things I do if I am not already there. What is “downstream”? Downstream is when you are flowing with the energy and feel no resistance or discomfort with your own alignment in what is happening or how you are feeling in the present moment. Downstream is natural. It flows. You don’t have to “make” things flow they just do when you feel downsteam, at ease, and peaceful.

I sometimes get that feeling of wanting to control outcomes, make things happen in my time, rush outcomes and condense buffers. Sometimes I want it so badly I can taste it and then I start willing things to happen and acting as though I had the power to raise the sun all by myself. I get anxious. I get tense and tight. It does no good and I feel all upstream and stressed to the max. My breathing is shallow and I can’t meditate or even relax. Has that ever happened to you? That is the upstream feeling that signals you are out of alignment and pushing your escrow farther and farther away. There is something you can do before you hit the hot tub and grab a glass of wine – breathe.

See, God has a time. Life and it’s process has a time for everything. Don’t we all know there is a time and season for everything? So stop. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Relax…Relax…Relax…Breathe deeply and relax completely. Listen to the air go in and out of your body. Focus on the breath. Release the pressure and relax your body parts one by one as you let go and let God. Start at your feet and work your way up. Breathing and relaxing as you talk yourself through the process. Feel your heart release it’s constriction, it’s tension. Just give it aaaalll up…there now. There is that lovely downstream feeling you were desiring. The pressure is gone and the Divine is in control of everything. It really is all perfect already. Did you forget that for a moment? I do. Yes, I do. It really is okay too. Just so you remember as soon as you can. Your feelings will tell you when you are not downsteam and it is extremely uncomfortable when you are stuck upstream too long. You can’t miss it. Your body never lies. What else might you do? Well, let’s see…

When I feel like that I look for things that help me relax. I look for videos and audios and writing and poetry, just lots of lovely peace inspiring love letters from the universe, as I call them. Abraham-Hicks and Neale Donald Walsch are definitely two of my favorites. Fortunately they are both prolific and there is a huge variety of books and cd’s available on their teachings of spiritually aligned living and prosperity. If your cashflow is trickling instead of flowing right now, there is always YouTube.

Here is a video that I found one day recently when feeling upstream and in strong desire of some peace of mind. You know that feeling? Of course you do. Here is Love and Truth from Neale Donald Walsch’s audios on Communion With God. Along with Neale, his guest voice-overs here are Ed Asner and Ellen Burstyn, two voices we know and love.

The other thing I recommend is that you allow yourself to take the time to go for a walk and really focus outside your thoughts to nature. Nature is the great healer and pay attention to the song of birds, the sound of the wind, the smell of the earth, the sound of the surf, and the scent of plant life. Immerse yourself in your walk and don’t think. Don’t think. Don’t think. Don’t think. Breathe deeply, and relax, completely. Now doesn’t that feel downstream?

Thank you for showing up.
I Love and Bless you,
Peace. Aum. Amen.
