Life has a way of teaching us to accept or maneuver around obstacles; some of them seemingly insurmountable. That’s where the miracle of flow comes in. With perpetual forward motion—under, over, around, or through—I choose to be a graceful partner in the beautiful, often salsa tempo’d, dance of life.
I wear a pendant that reminds me of my choice to be a vessel through which positivity flows: peace, joy, kindness, encouragement, compassion, acceptance, creativity, and light.
Another type of flow occurs when we are 100% involved in an activity that is challenging enough to engage us, but not so challenging that it’s frustrating. It’s a state in which we are fully in the present moment, and we lose awareness of everything other than our activity; we’re in the moment and things just…flow!

The water signs are the intuitive dreamers of this world. Water shapes intuition and emotional experience, and is linked to the feeling and emotional world. The element of intuitive perception, Water signs are inward-looking and sensitive. This is a passive, rhythmic element that ebbs and flows. Water signs need time to withdraw, to process emotional experiences, and then to reemerge into the world.
