Three important steps to achieve the "Inner Flow"

Achieving inner flow is vital aspect of personal growth and fulfillment. These three essential steps guide me daily:

1. Breath

The first step towards achieving inner flow is through conscious breathing. Deep, intentional breaths can help calm the mind, reduce stress, and bring you into the present moment. You can explore different breathing techniques like diaphragmatic breathing or alternate nostril breathing to find what works best for you. Take the time to follow your breath, deepen it and really smooth it out its texture. In yogic philosophy, smoothing the breath calms the mind. It is also believed to be the bridge to the body, mind and soul. A simple breathing practice can be greatly beneficial.

2. Ask Inwardly

The second step involves asking yourself what you truly want. Take the time to reflect on your desires, passions, and values. By connecting with your inner self, you can gain clarity on your goals and aspirations. Journaling or meditation can be helpful practices to facilitate this self-inquiry process. Start with a centering breath and simply ask. See what emerges, maybe its strength or courage, maybe its peace or mental clarity, inner knowing or self-love… And when “its” there, breath it in fully and embody it, feel it in your muscles, your bones, skin and aura.

Movement Practice is an important part to find the perfect inner Flow!

3. Movement Practice

Creating a movement practice that listens and connects to your inner longing is the third step towards achieving inner flow. Engaging in activities like yoga, dance, or any form of exercise that resonates with you can help you tap into your body's wisdom and express your inner self. Pay attention to how your body feels during movement and let it guide you towards a state of flow. Every movement practice can be fine tuned more to what you truly need daily, weekly or monthly.

Remember, achieving inner flow is a journey, and it may require consistent practice and self-reflection. Embrace the process and be patient with yourself. I believe that by following these three essential steps, you'll be well on your way to experiencing a deeper sense of fulfillment and alignment in your life.

I hope you find your inner flow,

Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art

“A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe—and how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat Pray Love

No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you’re not breathing properly.

There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences.

Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.

Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is.

Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again. A New York Times Bestseller
