What greater freedom is there than truly being me? And you truly being you? Me in my artsy energy, you in your adventure energy; me loving to eat delicious food, you loving to cook delicious food; me wilting in summer heat, you living for it; and our list goes on . . .
Human/Divine, strong/scared, selfish/selfless, playful/self-conscious, flawed/perfect, you get the idea . . .
I love our US holiday of July 4th, Independence Day. Our forefathers had a vision of being independent of certain constraints. And yet today, our country and our world face challenges that our forefathers could never have imagined. And still, each of us has the opportunity to choose our own freedom in any given moment.
While each of us has a list of certain things that will help us to be free – losing 20 pounds, getting out of debt, getting a new job or relationship or car, making more money, healing our broken leg or broken heart – there is a much more immediate way to be free. In this moment.
Simply allow yourself to become immersed in the energy of freedom.
Ooooo, aaaaah, the energy of freedom!
What does freedom feel like to you?
For me, I’m without concern and judgment, slowed down, excited and alert, and at the same time peaceful and present.
If it’s challenging for you to feel into it like that, then remember a time when you felt fully yourself, fully alive. Once you remember the event or activity, then remember what it felt like.
That’s the energy of freedom.
No new car purchase or more money in the bank necessary. Yet, interestingly, the more you live in the energy of freedom, the more whatever you require or whatever you’d like then tends to show up!
