Freedom and Confidence – Trusting in the Flow

There is freedom in trust. There is promise in the flow.

In my book, Wading the Stream of Awareness, I illustrate flow as being present with life. Life is flowing, and it moves with or without our conscious presence. The promises made by the movement can only be caught by the conscious fisher.

When trust begins internally, you are free to respond to what is authentically right. What is authentically right is very freeing. Trust that is built (earned) externally begins with the spark that is self-trust. This is the path of trust for the 21st Century leader.

As you deliver trust in your leadership, you build your confidence to participate in the flow. While the flow continues with or without one’s participation, it can be trusted to lead to good things. You must be willing to enter the movement confident and positive.

Facilitative Intuition:
“Have the confidence to let the current guide you, but also have enough paddles in the boat and a good mental image of the path of the river to adjust to unforeseen eddies and tree limbs!”

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, Iā€™m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are āˆ’ a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.

  1. Jeff, I almost imagine the flow happening even more pronounced in those leaders who have built up their confidence over time. Rather like a great athlete who “makes it look easy.”

  2. I love the imagery of the flow of the river and think it is the perfect metaphor for trusting yourself and the process. I remember a particularly significant canoe float I took down the Des Chutes River in Central Oregon–trusting the river would take us, and suspending the “doing” for awhile. Your post reminds me how important it is to be at one with our own flow.

  3. There IS freedom in trust. And, I’m reminded of this aphorism inoften heard from my mentor, Dick Olny, “trust God and tie your camel.”

    Staying in the current takes a bit of self effort and a bit of letting go. Sounds like balancing those polarities of holding on and letting go. This seems like quite a challenge for leaders, yes? It seems a challenge to know what to hold onto and what to let go of.
