Freedom from your thoughts

Freedom from your thoughts means getting out of your head and into your heart! This ‘monkey brain’ inhabits all of us at some point in our lives. It is destructive and keeps us bound.

Freedom from your patterns and conditioning

Practice mindfulness. Be the observer of your thoughts regularly and consistently. Question your beliefs whenever they arise. Most of your behavior is coming from your subconscious mind.

Freedom to be

Your identity — the way you perceive yourself — is often a result of your conditioning and the messages you heard while growing up. Once you break from these chains, you get to choose who you want to be. Now, practice the feeling of being that person and start to embody her/him.

Freedom from the fear of judgment

Realize that other people’s judgment of you is nothing you should ever take personally! They could be projections of where they are at. It is easier said than done but there is tremendous freedom from not taking personally anything anyone says or does to you.

Freedom from your past

This is a big one. It’s not easy letting go of the past. But it is the only way forward. Remember, your past does not define you — don’t give it energy if you truly want the future to be different.

Freedom from the future

Don’t be so focused on the future you forget to savor the present moment — because this moment is all you’ve got!  It’s about remembering to ‘smell the roses.’ Be present for yourself and those aound you. It’s how relationships are built.

Freedom from regret

Forgive yourself for your mistakes. We all make mistakes and we all need self-compassion. It’s the beginning of compassion for others.

Freedom to respond

Instead of reacting to everything that is said and done to you, practice pausing and responding kindly. I suspect, honoring this freedom will result in a lot less regret!

Freedom to feel

Allow yourself the freedom to feel the whole range of human emotions — it’s what makes you HUMAN!

Freedom from being stuck in those emotions!

Yes, go ahead and feel the whole range of emotions — acknowledge and observe them. And then decide how you will move through them. But don’t get stuck in the muck!

Freedom from the need to control

Nothing is promised — not even another day! You can steer your life but you can’t control every outcome. The sooner you accept this, the freer you’ll be. It doesn’t mean falling for everything around you. Neither does it negate the value of being intentional.

Freedom from expectations

Tony Robbins said, “If you want to change your life in the fastest way possible, trade your expectations of others for appreciation.”

Do you find that people are constantly disappointing you? Get clear with what you value and align with those values. Vibrate in alignment with who you really are and you will attract the people aligned with how you vibrate. But realise, no one is perfect.

What does it really mean to be free?

As I observe Remembrance Day, the true meaning of freedom compels me. Freedom is something we, in the free world, so easily take for granted. But freedom is more than having the chance to vote or not being behind bars. There is nothing more liberating than embodied freedom. Freedom for me is being the full-expression of who you are and all that you were meant to be. Enjoy your freedom! And don’t ever take it for granted!
