As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m in a gestational period. I’m incubating the next phase of my vocation, though I do not yet know what it looks like. I do, however, have the full support of the Universe as I am receiving many synchronous signs about what this next phase feels like – FREEDOM!
A couple of weeks ago I was walking home from the gym where I am a personal trainer, thinking about client hours, cancellations, income, the time oriented nature of this biz, and retirement. The question I raised for myself was, “If you retired, what would you want to do with your time?” Well, I treasure the physical training I do with others and would want to keep a few clients; I enjoy playing with energy, consciousness expansion, and sharing these kinds of resources with others; I get pleasure from writing about living from a connection with your Higher Self. A huge wave of recognition flowed through me and I just had to laugh out loud! I am already living in a way that reflects what I want to do when I “retire!” I am already experiencing the FREEDOM I imagined for my future.
Last week I confessed to a friend I had wasted too much time lately playing Angry Birds (really? it’s embarrassing!). She told me that when she was pregnant she had the most delicious feeling of being continuously productive, regardless of whether she was “in action” or not. She was producing a baby when she was taking a nap, watching mindless TV or working; the most important thing was that she was gestating. There it is, FREEDOM to follow whatever is calling to me whether it is strategic games to entertain my mind, or bike rides to fuel my body, or sharing my professional skills, the real productivity of gestating my future is happening 24/7 and it needs the time, space and FREEDOM to do that.
One last example is from the Agents of Consciousness Evolution training. Our focus the past few weeks is around allowing our compass of joy to bring forth our unique skills and gifts so that we each can use these in service to the transformation of our world. As Agents, we see ourselves as the pioneers modeling a co-creative community that honors every ones’ strengths and gifts, providing the FREEDOM for people to self-express in ways that empower their highest contribution to the community. It’s the FREEDOM to be who you really are, abundantly supported on all levels, to joyously evolve our world through your own full self-expression.
Integrating More Freedom Into Your Life:
- Where in your life do you feel the most restricted or stuck? Now take the opposite view and “make a case” in your journal how this part of your life actually reflects some aspect of FREEDOM. What insights or inspired action steps come from this?
- In your quite time, ask yourself, “What is growing in me that wants to be shared with the world?” You may not receive a specific answer, but you may receive a feeling, an image, a color, a thought, a scenario. Just notice what shows up and allow this new information to incubate. Check in again after a few days to see what else is present. How is this information moving you toward experiencing more FREEDOM of self-expression in your life? Check out programs (many are free!) by the Shift Network to support you in your journey toward full self-expression.
- Whenever I lead clients to experience themselves as their most expanded Self and ask, “What are you feeling?” invariably I hear “FREEDOM.” Listen to my meditation, “The Mental Gap,” which leads you through the experience of feeling yourself as pure energy.
