Meditation, breathing and being in the present moment are the keys to accessing your Stream of Consciousness! So, do you meditate? If so, maybe examine your practice at this point in time and evaluate how it’s been working for you. If not, there are many types of meditation practices you can try. I encourage you to try them all – experiment to see which kind suits you best.
Recently, I shared this poem I wrote on November 12, 2017 (that you see in the above picture) titled, ‘Stream of Consciousness’ with one of my ten year old twin sons, Bastian, of which he says to me, “Ma, were you in the Stream of Consciousness when you wrote this poem?”. “Yep!”, I said to him, explaining that I had just meditated for approximately 20 minutes and then sat down to write in my notebook and these words ‘streamed’ out of me, effortlessly! He said, “I thought so – I knew it!” – which is rather enlightened of him to understand the Stream of Consciousness at such a young age. (Who am I kidding?! Kids understand the Stream of Consciousness better and easier than adults – kids, for the most part, are living in their Stream of Consciousness until the pressures of the real world begin to come upon them, ie; homework, chores, getting a job etc..
This is why it’s so important for us adults to meditate and practice the concept of ‘present consciousness’ on a daily basis. As adults, we now have to consciously practice and put ourselves into the Stream of Consciousness because we are no long natural at it like we once were as kids. Good news though! Once you cultivate a regular meditation practice for yourself, you will easily and effortlessly experience the Stream of Consciousness on a regular basis. You just have to let yourself!
This poem that streamed out of me explains the pathway to your Stream of Consciousness. Please have a read and see if you understand it – wink, wink! And meditate, meditate, meditate. (And yes, that’s my drawing of the Stream of Consciousness underneath the poem, and yes, that’s my handwriting!)
