is an optimal state of consciousness where you Feel and Perform your BEST.
It has many names – the Zone, the Groove, etc – but the feeling and benefits are always the same.
When you’re in Flow, whether it’s work-related or play related:
- You feel completely absorbed in your activity with a laser-like, calm focus;
- You feel strong, alert, in complete control, and you’re able to power through whatever you’re doing with far greater effectiveness;
- Your sense of time disappears, you can go for hours, and there’s an exhilarating feeling of transcendence and joy;
- You get flashes of insight and innovation that seem to come from out of the blue that afterwards seem to be obvious and you often wonder why you hadn’t thought of them earlier.
Many people have experienced Flow State but they can’t control when it Happens
Playing a musical instrument, creating art, participating in high-performance sports, practicing yoga or mediation or even just out walking alone in nature – these are all ways that people typically tap into Flow State.
Most people have a very difficult time getting into Flow State at will – they just tend to fall into it ‘when the stars align perfectly’.
Wouldn’t it be Nice to be Able to Tap into Flow State at Will and Get all of its Benefits on a Daily Basis?
Now you can.
With a simple technique combined with your Personal Colors, you can literally train your brain to get into Flow State whenever you’d like
be able to apply that peak brain state to all of your work projects to be 500% more productive, with far more creative insights and innovative ideas.
The benefits of getting into Flow spill over into your personal life and your health
When you use your Personal Colors to tap into Flow, you get clarity about any areas in your life where you you may be feeling blocked or stuck. And you start to get unstuck. Fast.
Getting into Creative Flow on a regular basis has also been scientifically shown to dramatically improve your physical and mental health and reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

More Scientific Research & Quotes about Flow & Meditative Right Brain States
How they Impact Creativity, Peak Productivity, Innovation and Optimal Health & Healing …
“It has been found that people who experience a lot of flow in their daily lives also develop other positive traits, such as high concentration, high self-esteem, and even greater health
– Mihaly Cziksentmihalyi, Psychologist & originator of the term ‘Flow’:
“Almost every day, new scientific research is confirming what the ancient sages knew thousands of years ago: The regular practice of meditation and meditative activities (like Flow State) lowers blood pressure, reduces cholesterol, strengthens immune function, relieves insomnia, decreases the production of stress hormones such as cortisol and glucagon (making it easier to lose weight), and restores the body and mind’s natural balance.”
– Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D.
On the Medical Science & Healing benefits of Meditative/Flow states:
“When studying the brainwaves of meditating monks, Dr. Richard Davidson, director of the Laboratory for Affective Neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin, found that brain circuitry is different in long-time meditators (or people who practice meditative activities) than it is in non-meditators. Here’s how: when you are upset – anxious, depressed, angry – certain regions of the brain (the amygdala and the right prefrontal cortex) become very active. When you’re in a positive mood these sites quiet down and the left prefrontal cortex – a region associated with happiness and positivity – becomes more active. In studying meditating monks, Davidson found they had especially high activity in this area.One of the things that is so amazing about this finding is that for a long time, scientists thought that each individual was wired with certain “set-points” for happiness, depression, and so on. This study shows that the brain can rewire itself and alter its set points – simply by the self-healing power of thought.”
– Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D.

Harvard Medical School Research Study – Flow State IMPROVES your Brain
A new study has found that participating in an eight-week meditation or mindfulness (aka Flow State) training program for just 27 minutes per day, can have measurable effects on how the brain functions even when someone is not actively meditating.
“In the mindful attention group, the after-training brain scans showed a decrease in activation in the right amygdala in response to all images, supporting the hypothesis that meditation can improve emotional stability and response to stress. In the compassion meditation group, right amygdala activity also decreased in response to positive or neutral images. But among those who reported practicing compassion meditation most frequently outside of the training sessions, right amygdala activity tended to increase in response to negative images, all of which depicted some form of human suffering. No significant changes were seen in the control group or in the left amygdala of any study participants.
“We think these two forms of meditation cultivate different aspects of mind,” Desbordes explains. “Since compassion meditation is designed to enhance compassionate feelings, it makes sense that it could increase amygdala response to seeing people suffer. Increased amygdala activation was also correlated with decreased depression scores in the compassion meditation group, which suggests that having more compassion towards others may also be beneficial for oneself. Overall, these results are consistent with the overarching hypothesis that meditation may result in enduring, beneficial changes in brain function, especially in the area of emotional processing.”
“This is the first time that meditation training has been shown to affect emotional processing in the brain outside of a meditative state.”
Mindfulness meditation has been reported to produce positive effects on psychological well-being that extend beyond the time the individual is formally meditating. Over the last three decades mindfulness meditation practices have been increasingly incorporated into psychotherapeutic programs, to take advantage of these benefits (cf., Baer, 2003; Grossman et al., 2004). A large body of research has established the efficacy of these mindfulness-based interventions in reducing symptoms of a number of disorders, including anxiety (Roemer et al., 2008), depression (Teasdale et al., 2000), substance abuse (Bowen et al., 2006), eating disorders (Tapper et al., 2009), and chronic pain (Grossman et al., 2007), as well as improving well-being and quality of life (e.g., Carmody and Baer, 2008). Mindfulness meditation involves the development of awareness of present-moment experience with a compassionate, non-judgmental stance (Kabat-Zinn, 1990). It has been suggested that this process is associated with a perceptual shift (Carmody, 2009), in which one’s thoughts and feelings are recognized as events occurring in the broader field of awareness.”
Requirements for Team Flow – McKinsey 20 year study on Flow State
“The remarkably consistent answers we’ve received fall into three categories. The first set includes elements such as role clarity, a clear understanding of objectives, and access to the knowledge and resources needed to get the job done. These are what one might term rational elements of a flow experience or, to use a convenient shorthand, its intellectual quotient (IQ). When the IQ of a work environment is low, the energy employees bring to the workplace is misdirected and often conflicting.
Another set of answers includes factors related to the quality of the interactions among those involved. Here, respondents often mention a baseline of trust and respect, constructive conflict, a sense of humor, a general feeling that “we’re in this together,” and the corresponding ability to collaborate effectively. These create an emotionally safe environment to pursue challenging goals or, to borrow from the writings of Daniel Goleman and others, an environment with a high emotional quotient (EQ). When the EQ of a workplace is lacking, employee energy dissipates in the form of office politics, ego management, and passive-aggressive avoidance of tough issues.
While IQ and EQ are absolutely necessary to create the conditions for peak performance, they are far from sufficient. The longest list of words we have compiled from executives’ answers to our peak-performance question over the last ten years has little to do with either of these categories. This third one describes the peak-performance experience as involving high stakes; excitement; a challenge; and something that the individual feels matters, will make a difference, and hasn’t been done before. We describe this third category as the meaning quotient (MQ) of work. When a business environment’s MQ is low, employees put less energy into their work and see it as “just a job” that gives them little more than a paycheck.”
McKinsey Quarterly Article – On the Psychological Science of Using Flow for Peak Performance, Increased Productivity & Greater Job & Life Satisfaction
“The mental state that gives rise to great performance—in sports, business, or the arts—has been described in different ways. The psychologist Mihàly Csìkszentmihàlyi studied thousands of subjects, from sculptors to factory workers, and asked them to record their feelings at intervals throughout the working day. He observed that people fully employing their core capabilities to meet a goal or challenge created what he called ‘flow’. Athletes describe the same feeling as ‘being in the zone’; musicians talk about ‘being in the groove’.
More important, Csìkszentmihàlyi found that individuals who frequently experienced it (flow) were more productive and derived greater satisfaction from their work than those who didn’t. They set goals for themselves to increase their capabilities, thereby tapping into a seemingly limitless well of energy. And they expressed a willingness to repeat those activities in which they achieved flow even if they were not being paid to do so.Flow sounds great in theory, but few business leaders have mastered the skill of generating it reliably in the workplace…
McKINSEY’S QUESTION: … Can employees in the workplace experience similar performance peaks and, if so, what can top management do to encourage the mental state that brings them about?”
YES, they can – and so can you!
