  • It is not clear why flow is linked to magic and spirit. Or even why the author put them together. Maybe it is clearer in the rest of the text, which I cannot access. – Lambie Apr 23 '19 at 16:25

This refers to a Psychological Concept, not a dictionary definition. It refers to being fully immersed, energized, or focused.
