If your truly in need of more adventure, your intuition will guide you. Intuition is "The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning." The thinking mind that we use so much. We often try to think the solution out of the problem… rather just sit back and let the answers flow to you rather than force them out.

The very act of moving your body helps you go move into a different space sparks an adventure. When you don't know where you're going, it's exciting as you see things you have never seen before.

We can look to children to see how much they play, yet we don't really do it ourselves.
Being highly self aware and knowing our likes and dislikes is such an important quality. This helps us to choose how we will spend our time, what type of people we like being with, what activities we like to engage in, events we want to go to and places we want to see.

This is often where we find the adventure in our lives.
You can use 'flow' to draw adventures into your life, rather than always chasing them! What do I mean by that?

Flow can be defined as "a steady continuous stream of something" or "moving steadily and continuously in a current or stream." In our case flow is a steady continuous stream of living your life in joy, ease and adventure, it will feel like you effortlessly floating along in the stream of your life.
Great ideas pop into our heads all the time and our imagination can run wild with these very thoughts and often does. Until we start hearing questions like 'What if it doesn't work?', 'What if I'm not good at it?', 'What will other people think of me?', 'I'm not good enough', 'I don't have the time.'
Spring as sprung and and for most of us down here in the southern hemisphere winter is well and truly over. Something that so many of us are very happy to see. I'm still holding on to my last few days of 'winter at the snow' and am just trying to figure out how I can get a few runs in on my snowboard later today and for the rest of this week.
