Alignment, Ease, Energy & Flow: going with the flow

I have to admit: Before my obsession with Law of Attraction, I had never really given any thought to what the Universe was flowing to me. I was too busy making To Do lists, setting goals, and efforting my way to try to get what I wanted.

The thought of going with the flow probably would have sounded passive to me. Like I wasn’t doing enough—taking enough action—to get the things in life I wanted—to achieve goals and acquire shiny pennies.

Of course, now I think about flow in an entirely different way. In fact, these days I’m only interested in going with the flow.

“When you relax and begin going with the flow, your ability to manifest is huge in relationship with those that are going against the current.” —Abraham

Efforting is out. Going with the flow is in. And I’ve most certainly put the Universe in charge of figuring out the “how” of manifesting what I want.

So let’s talk about what the Universe is flowing to you right now.

How are you even supposed to know?

Well, first, it’s making the decision to tap into universal energy.

It’s a willingness to stop micromanaging the “how” of everything in your life and, instead, embrace that the Universe knows best, and can connect the dots more easily and in ways you would never have even dared to imagine.

I want to share six ways to tap into and align with what the Universe is flowing to you.

1: What’s the easy way?

“The Universe knows the perfect timing for all those things you want…and will find, through the crack of least resistance, the best way to deliver it to you.” —Abraham

Did you catch that—“the crack of least resistance.” Because the easy way is most definitely the path of least resistance.

Well, when is the last time you did things the easy way? In fact, what’s your relationship in general to ease and easy? And what if you started doing things the easy way all the time?

Just sit with that for a second. Because let me tell you: It’s life changing.

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you is the easy way, the path of least resistance.

2: What’s downstream?

Because what the Universe is flowing to you is always downstream.

“Everything that we want is downstream…And you don’t have even to turn the boat and paddle downstream, just let go of the oars, the current will carry you.” —Abraham

But many of us are holding on tight to those oars. And we’re furiously paddling upstream.

  • Letting go of the oars means letting go of needing to figure it all out right this minute and make a 100-item To Do list.
  • Letting go of the oars means letting go of efforting, micromanaging, and controlling.

This is decidedly new ground for many of us. Because we have had a very firm grasp on the oars and have been efforting our way upstream. Sure, we’ve made progress, but at what cost?

“Let go of the oars…everything you want is downstream.” —Abraham

In addition to being overly involved in the “how” things unfold and micromanaging and controlling, downstream is also about the other ways we show up in our lives.

“I can complain or I can appreciate. I can find fault or I can look for positive aspects. I can worry about something or I can look forward to something. I can remember things that irritated me or I can remember things that pleased me. I can look for your faults or I can look for your positive aspects. And in every moment in time I’ve got an ‘upstream’ or ‘downstream’ choice. Try to put your life into that context—so you deliberately try to point ‘downstream’—and then all you need to do is hold your tongue about the upstream stuff.” —Abraham

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you is downstream.

3: What feels good?

One of my all-time favorite Abraham quotes is: “You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey.”

What the Universe is flowing to you is not something to endure, to handle, to get through, to tolerate in order to get what you want. That would be an unhappy journey.

No, the Universe wants to flow a happy journey to you and a happy ending.

But you have to do your part and get in a good-feeling place.

We live in a vibrational Universe. The Universe is responding to the vibrational frequency you are emitting. The Law of Attraction is lining up similar frequencies.

“If you have the ability to desire it, the Universe has the ability to deliver it. You’ve just got to line up with what you want, which means: Be as happy as you can be as often as you can be and let everything else take care of itself.” —Abraham

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you feels good.

4: What does your intuition say?

Are you tapping into your own intuition? Are you paying attention to the intuitive spark of a great idea or a sudden insight? Oh, this is what to do next!

The Universe speaks to you through your intuition. Which means you have your own best guidance.

I don’t know what’s best for you or have your answers. Your spouse doesn’t. Your best friend doesn’t. But you do.

And if you will listen to your intuition—to that wise, peaceful, loving, encouraging, all-is-well voice inside you, you will know what to do, know the answer, know your next step.

Your intuition is really and truly the only guidance you will ever need.

The challenge for many of us is we aren’t used to tapping into intuition for guidance. We’re too busy listening and taking direction from every kind of external source—friends, family, social media, so-called experts.

But looking outside yourself is not the way to tap into what the Universe is flowing to you. Instead, Abraham wants you to embrace this:

“I’m without resistance and my Inner Being is whispering to me my best path right now.” —Abraham

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you is revealed through your own intuition.

5: What are the signs?

Are you paying attention to the signs from the Universe? Or do you have your head down, nose to the grindstone and are missing all the cues?

Have you opted out of serendipity and synchronicity because you’re just too busy to pay attention to what’s flowing your way? Too busy with your To Do list and goals and plans and how-to steps.

“The truth is, the Universe will always take care of you.” —Abraham

When you’re tuned in, tapped in, turned on, as Abraham says, you’re open to the signs. You connect the dots, making intuitive leaps that feel good and move your manifestation forward.

You find yourself in the right place at the right time. You meet people who help you along your path. The right resource shows up just when you need it. Your questions are answered.

The Universe is looking out for you. Are you noticing the signs?

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you has signposts all along the way.

6: What is the inspired action?

Inspired action is energy-giving, not energy-draining, and has a flow to it.

One step leads easily and effortlessly to the next step or next idea. It’s as if the Universe has left you a breadcrumb trail and all you have to do is follow it.

“When it’s inspired action, the whole of the Universe is flowing with you.” —Abraham

Inspired action is often whispered to us from our intuition. Do this. Try that.

Things fall into place, solutions appear, you experience ease. All the lights are green, you meet just the right person at the right time, circumstances seem to line up for your benefit.

Know this: Whatever the Universe is flowing to you will lead to inspired action, not forced or massive action.

I’ve just shared six ways to tap into and align with what the Universe is flowing to you.

I want you to go with the flow of the Universe.

  • I want you to tap into Universal energy and go downstream, where’s it’s easy.
  • I want you to let go of resistance and feel good.
  • I want you to listen to your intuition and take only inspired action.

Make a decision to trust in the Universe.

Stop micromanaging the how and trying to control everything. It’s exhausting and it’s really not all that effective. Instead, trust that “when you leverage your desires with the Universe and let go of resistance your ambitious goals have no option but to materialize.” —Abraham

Use the six ways I shared to tap into and align with what the Universe is flowing to you.

  1. What’s the easy way?
  2. What’s downstream?
  3. What feels good?
  4. What does your intuition say?
  5. What are the signs?
  6. What is the inspired action?

“Everything you want is coming. Relax and let the Universe pick the timing and the way.” —Abraham
