If you have heard the award Confidence Coach Lisa Phillips speak on a cruise ship, conference, wellbeing day or attended one of her school workshops, you will have heard her talk about ‘ Why your Life is like a Flowing Stream’
The ‘ Your Life is Like a Flowing Stream’ adage is very simple.
Imagine you are sitting in a canoe in a lovely flowing stream. This canoe represents your Life, feelings, thoughts and beliefs.
The flowing stream is actually an emotional stream. You have a choice every minute as to whether you choose to take your canoe up the stream or down the stream!
What happens when you take your canoe upstream?
Think about it – when a canoe is going upstream, Life is a struggle, hard work and you don’t get very far! You will probably end up exhausted as well, feeling stuck or just going round in circles!
Going up Upstream in your Canoe, actually represents negative emotions such as fear, doubt or anytime you are beating yourself up. Unfortunately , many of us live our lives in a upstream way. We have just got used to feeling negative and don’t really care about own stream of personal wellbeing. Most feelings of depression and anxiety are actually a result of living life upstream for too long.
What happens when you take your canoe Downstream?
It’s easy! When you take your canoe downstream, you simply let go of the oars and let the momentum of the stream take you in the direction of your desires. This is where you experience positive emotion such as hope, fun, happiness, confidence and of course you feel Frisky! This is where the Law of Attraction kicks in to give you everything that you desire. Downstream is about caring about how you feel and learning to move yourself from upstream into downstream.
Where do you take your Canoe each Morning?
When you wake up each morning, where does your Canoe go? Do you take your canoe upstream or downstream?
