4 Steps to Achieving Your Personal Freedom

7 Dec

How much Personal Freedom do you enjoy in your life?

When I look back on my childhood I realize just how little personal freedom I was given. Now you might say there is only a certain amount of freedom you can give a child and yes I would agree but I am talking here about the freedom of being a person in your own right, not a commodity to be trained and conditioned according to the family rules, the parental beliefs and all the ancestry baggage families act out.

If we weren’t facilitated to grow into our own personal freedom way back then – we have to decide now – do I get SMART or do I continue to live with the old habitual restrictions, that will never manifest into anything close to my full personal potential.

What would you like to do?

I know what I want.

The answer seems obvious.

I want one hundred percent authentic personal power and freedom.

That doesn’t mean we become uncaring selfish, self centered pains in the butts.

Quite the reverse, we become conscious, compassionate, emotionally intelligent and resilient individuals.

From my experience there is a massive difference in dealing with an individual who is grounded in their own  personal freedom to someone who is disconnected – unconscious –  defensive and projects all their difficulties onto their past or to present day circumstances.

It is time to wake up and claim your life back.

 

 When you do this for yourself you do it for the entire world.

It is time to  Step up and Claim Your Personal Freedom.

Take responsibility for yourself..

Nothing will change  until you realize you are the change that needs to happen. Once you make that change everything opens up.

No man can hope to be completely free who lingers within reach of familiar habits and urgencies – Richard Byrd

Invest in yourself – you are the gem that will appreciate in value over time.

Let go off old beliefs – habits of reaction – old behaviors that no longer serve you well.

We all have a tendency to over analysis, berate ourselves, criticize, judge – complain. Let it all go – release the stress and burden of doing and thinking incorrectly.

Let go of people importance – rules – imported blueprints, instead this is the time to create your own way of doing your life.

You are the artist of your own life – you hold the paint brush

Think for yourself

Research tells us we make our decisions in the subconscious rather than consciously. Imagine all your thinking is coming from old conditioning and old experiences.

When we become more self aware, we can become vigilant of this old conditioning and eventually have the discernment to change it.

It is this automatic thinking process, the monkey mind, the critical voice that keeps us from our personal freedom.

This voice has no power. But take responsibility for it and release it. Give it no attention – ignore it.

When we can differentiate between the old stuff and a new vibrant wonderful experience, we can truly say I am living from my authentic personal freedom.

 

 Live from your personal freedom everyday.

 We are what we think, as we desire so do we become.

By our thoughts desires and habits we either ascend to the full divine

dignity of our nature or we descend to suffer and learn. J. Todd Ferrier.

 

Personal Freedom is an inner condition that requires continual cultivation and re-tuning.

Every day there will be challenges. It would be easy to retract – return to the old conditioning and fear based existence. But if we want to taste the excitement the wonder, the growth of our true self then we are called to be courageous, to fight the old and embrace the new.

Personal Freedom is valuing yourself, living with personal responsibility and autonomy.

Its standing up and declaring who you are and you are a fabulous wonderful individual a unique essence in the world with unique gifts and qualities of creativity and knowledge that those around your table whether in work, or at home need to see and experience.

So many people live under the shade, be courageous to lift your head to the light.

Daily commitment to your personal freedom.

The old ways are strong and well bedded into that subconscious mind so everyday make a commitment to yourself.

To day I move closer to my personal freedom.

In every situation I will have the freedom to be the best authentic expression of who I am.

I will find courage to know myself better and to live with integrity and honesty.

I will follow the  motivation and intention of my personal freedom each day.

I will remain true to my true self

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4 things to remember on a rainy day.

10 Nov

I am Irish and I know about rain.

Do you know it rains in Ireland?

That’s why Ireland is renowned for its forty shades of green – it’s due to constant rain.

Guess what?

It is raining to-day.

It rained yesterday and the weather forecast for tomorrow is – wait for it – yes more rain.

I remember as a child singing

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play;
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again!

It never did.

It stayed and it continues to play havoc. But the added effect

is  the depressor – the grayness that goes with this rain.

This is the game changer – this is what brings on the low moods – even depression.

These are the days of  blown out skies with no contrast – no definition.

These are the dull flat days that some individuals struggle to cope with.

These are the days when the lonely feel lonelier – when flatness changes to despair

-when hope changes to helplessness.

And yet all can be turned around if we remember 4 little things.

“The Celtic Festival of Samhain marks that time when we can let go of the old year and allow ourselves to dream new dreams in the darkness of winter;

follow the urge to withdraw and remember who we are;

dream the seeds of the future we wish to see happen, and gather them within ourselves, to be nurtured and germinated in the depth of our imagination in the darkness of winter.

This puts a whole new meaning to those gray rainy days. Its time to warm up – cosy up – listen to our heart and dream.

Light the fire – beckon to the flames – and sit as our ancestors did – and nourish the soul.

The soul knows what it needs.

The soul knows what it wants.

It is when we focus on the froth and bubble of life and mistakenly believe in it that brings us into the hopelessness of gray rainy weather.

But read this fantastic poster

I love this poster that I found on my friends fan page. It signifies getting back to ourselves. Back to the energy – the life force – of who we really are.

It is in connection with ourselves that we can be prompted to dance – to sing – to tell stores – to be in the silence where all wisdom radiates into our lives.

  • Never stop dancing.
  • Never stop singing
  • Never stop being enchanted by stories.
  • Never stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence.

 

The journey of every day begins at the core of your being. That connection with your higher self – soul – God – life – whatever label you want to put on it – motivates us through the many cycles of life into the colorful dance.

 

The wisdom in 4 special quotes

4 Nov

success

People love the wisdom in quotes but they forget one thing.

I have loved quotes, realized their wisdom- been enriched with their insight – had the wow feeling and like many other people forgot the next stage of the process – put them into practice.

I forgot to implement the wisdom.

Nothing changes until we take action.

Nothing changes until we make those changes happen.

So let’s begin at the beginning.

Here are four quotes packed

with wisdom. If you implement them they will definitely, without

a doubt bring great changes to your life.

The challenge is can you embed them into your life?

 

Wisdom in finding yourself

“And in this game of life, we all search for ourselves. When I say selves, I mean ‘inner selves’,

the thing that created the life in the first place. Now consciously, most of us are not aware of this.

But if you’re searching for happiness; if you’re searching for tranquility;

 if you’re searching just to have a nice, peaceful, loving, understanding life… in actual fact, your searching for your inner self.” 

A Sydney Banks quote.

Due to Sydney Banks profound insight and lifelong dedication to relieving human suffering, Mr. Banks has been nominated twice for the prestigious Templeton Prize* and the West Virginia University created the Sydney Banks Institute for Innate Health. At Mr. Banks request, the Institute was later renamed the West Virginia Initiative for Innate Health. http://www.sydneybanks.org/

 Live by your inner wisdom

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice.

And most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

They (heart and intuition) somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

A Steve Jobs quote.

Steven PaulSteveJobs  February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American entrepreneur, marketer, and inventor who was the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. Through Apple, he is widely recognized as a charismatic and design-driven pioneer of the personal computer revolution and for his influential career in the computer and consumer electronics fields, transforming “one industry after another, from computers and smartphones to music and movies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs

 

Creativity from wisdom

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy a quickening that is translated through you into action,

and because there is only one of you in all time this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never

exist through any other medium and will be lost.”

A Martha Graham quote.

Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991) was an American modern dancer and choreographer whose influence on dance has been compared with the influence Picasso had on the modern visual arts, Stravinsky had on music, or Frank Lloyd Wright had on architecture

She danced and choreographed for over seventy years. Graham was the first dancer ever to perform at the White House, travel abroad as a cultural ambassador, and receive the highest civilian award of the USA: the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In her lifetime she received honors ranging from the Key to the City of Paris to Japan’s Imperial Order of the Precious Crown. She said, in the 1994 documentary “The Dancer Revealed”

“I have spent all my life with dance and being a dancer. It’s permitting life to use you in a very intense way. Sometimes it is not pleasant. Sometimes it is fearful. But nevertheless it is inevitable.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_Graham

 

Wisdom in non attachment.

“No man can not hope to be completely free who lingers within reach of familiar habits and urgencies.”

A Richard Byrd quote

Richard Byrd was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights, in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau.
