Living in Flow
The Key to Unlocking Your Greatest Potential
by Catherine Krame View author's profile page

Overview


The book begins with a glimpse of the author’s personal journey and what inspired her to write this book. She presents the idea that the elevated stream of consciousness associated with Flow can be cultivated by each of us for our own personal betterment, and to increase human potential. Early in the book we are introduced to the concept that Flow is much more than a state of consciousness, and that it is a tangible force in our environment. The author shows us that Flow is not something to be achieved or attained; rather, it is innately accessible to each one of us.

 

To help the reader begin to understand what Flow is and how to harness it, they are introduced to the critical elements of mindfulness and the power of present-moment-awareness, without which, it is impossible to enter Flow.  Comparisons are made between ancient and modern perspectives, finding similarities between mindfulness philosophies and the Flow state.  Ancient teachings and present-day research both found perception to be the single most important quality in determining how we experience life, and how we view the world around us. For this reason, the importance of present-moment-awareness and how it relates to Flow  becomes a recurring theme throughout the book.

 

The investigation of Flow as a consciousness that extends well beyond the brain is crucial to understanding the full scope of this energy. We can simply use our own elevated consciousness to tap into it and, in doing so, we become the co-creators of our reality. Research findings in the areas of physics, medicine, and human biology are bridging the gap between science and spirituality, and by shedding light on the more subjective and unseen elements of our world, the author encourages us to acknowledge that they play a relevant role in our experience. 

 

Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the underlying principles of mindfulness to give a greater basis for understanding the crucial mind-body connection, not only in mindfulness practices themselves but also in the experience of Flow. The author spends time highlighting some of the critical elements of being in Flow, and also takes a close look at the act of surrendering to our experience as paramount to entering Flow. The important role that the heart plays in our experience of life and our ability to enter the Flow state is examined, revealing it as not just a life-sustaining organ, but indeed a gateway into Flow.  We come to see Flow as a state of consciousness that exists within us, just as much as it exists all around us.  The author shares personal stories to illustrate the power of being in the Flow state and how it can affect the outcome of our experience. Finally, the author addresses the relationship between ‘Enlightenment’ and Flow , suggesting that these two states of being are quite possibly one and the same. The book ends with a conclusion summarizing her findings – that through our own intent we can cultivate Flow  to unlock the door to enhanced human potential for ourselves, and for humanity as a whole.

Description


What if you could enter into a stream of consciousness in which life unfolded with ease, flowed effortlessly, AND you could do this at will? What if you could tap into a stream of positive energy where you weren't held back by fear and anxiety, and obsessive rumination were a thing of the past? Welcome to "Flow"—a dynamic state of consciousness accessible through the power of our own present-moment awareness. This book investigates the Flow state as an elevated level of energy within us, between us, and all around us. Recent advances in science and medicine are used to show that we have the potential to cultivate Flow  through our own intent. Our ability to develop the mind-body connection and tap into our body's innate intelligence IS the gateway into Flow. It is through a contemporary lens that we can begin to understand Flow in a new way, and harness it in a manner that will literally change our brains to make way for a giant evolutionary leap. Most of us have experienced Flow on some level or understand what it means to be "in the zone." By leveraging what researchers already know about Flow, the author provides key insights for individuals to reach their greatest potential. Most importantly, a new light is shed on the genuine possibilities we have for elevating our collective level of consciousness in a sustainable way. By cultivating Flow, not only will we achieve greater personal resilience but we will also unlock the door to enhanced human potential. This book summarizes the author's interpretation of the decades of research that have led to a paradigm shift in the areas of physics, medicine, and human biology. Repeatedly experiencing the benefit of an unseen universal energy (Flow) allowed her to understand and synthesize information through a new lens that produced a radically altered world-view. The author has written this book to help increase your awareness of Flow so that you are able to identify it in your own life, and, so you can begin to experience more Flow to live with greater ease and harmony.

About the author


Welcome to the fascinating world of Flow ! The author invites you on a journey of self-discovery to explore this dynamic state of consciousness that is accessible to each and every one of us through our own heightened awareness. As co-founder of the Krame Center for Contemplative Studies and Mindful Living at Ramapo College of New Jersey, and as a Mindfulness-Based-Stress-Reduction (MBSR) teacher certified in Positive Psychology (CiPP), Catherine is dedicated to bringing mindfulness practices to others as a means of living in the Flow of life. The author was exposed to mindfulness over 20 years ago and began incorporating meditation and daily mindfulness practices with life-changing results. On her own personal journey of self-discovery she had accidental encounters with a heightened realm of being that she would later learn was the known state of consciousness called Flow. An ongoing exploration into mindfulness would prove to be a powerful catalyst for entering into prolonged periods of Flow, and she began to realize that this highly desirable state of consciousness could quite possibly be the key to unlocking enhanced human potential. Concluding that Flow is not just a state of consciousness, but rather, it is an all-encompassing universal energy, the author highlights our innate capacity to access Flow. This book summarizes the author's interpretation of the decades of research that have led to a paradigm shift in the areas of physics, medicine and human biology. Repeatedly experiencing the benefit of an unseen universal energy (Flow) allowed her to understand and synthesize information through a new lens that produced a radically altered world-view. The author sheds light on our ability to use Flow for personal betterment, and how it can become an evolutionary stepping-stone for the benefit of mankind.
