Flow Notes is a manifest well-being and information seed that came to Tamara Cortez as she began creatively writing with the intention that we all awaken as we see the reflection of the universe in each being. As Tamara began writing and sharing her notes with those who willingly participated in this consciousness project through her e-mail list, she came to understand that what was happening within herself on a microcosmic level was happening with others and community on a macro level. Her drive to connect through her notes so that others knew they were not alone in their "growth" propelled a seven-year writing project. As Flow Notes grew, the messages became profound, and Tamara allowed these notes to flow through her for the benefit of human consciousness. Connecting in this way became more than just a weekly note, but also putting aside the ego and allowing for divine guidance and advice to come through not just for herself, but all who read them. She realized that in the toughest times of her life, Flow Notes was the flickering light at the end of the tunnel. The main goal was to be of service through these notes and at times be openly naked to the hurt and what it had to teach her and how we are all connected through this web of life. After a bicycle accident in 2008 and months of recovery, Tamara realized that releasing these notes needed to be done on a massive scale. These notes were no longer hers to keep but for the world to enjoy and be inspired to the wholeness of who they are.
