Freedom is an embodiment. There are resources, circumstances and physical things that support freedom, yes, but all of that is useless if it is not met with an energetic, mental and emotional freedom. Freedom is freedom to simply be and whatever might be required to support that. It is the ultimate expression of doing as a result of your being.
If you are not free then there is nothing you can do or receive that will ever give you freedom. It can be such an easy trick to chase something that will give you freedom, be it money, time or energy, but this chasing in and of itself is not free, it is chained to the thing that you desire, so how much freedom can you get from this thing if you are tied to it? If your freedom only comes when you have it?
Freedom is being free from any demands or unjust desires. This doesn’t mean that you are accountable to no one, but rather that everything you do is by choice with awareness of how it is supporting your highest self.
We tend to think of freedom as us vs. them, that your freedom is limited by other people, outside circumstances and resources. But really, freedom is soul vs. ego. The ego is telling you that you will be free only when… It puts the blame on other people and things which is not only limiting your freedom but it is disempowering you too. The soul is here to be, to shine, to live without any attachment to any thing or outcome. To simply enjoy what it has, here and now. The Soul knows that your freedom is determined by how well you know yourself and how present you are in the moment and how willing you are to live by that.
Freedom cannot be determined by the book, it must be felt into in the moment- does this feel free to me? Sometimes saying No is just as freeing as saying yes. Sometimes stability and structure supports more freedom than open space does. If you are feeling stuck somewhere, or limited, consider first what your mindset is towards the situation and what limitations you are holding there. Once you understand your self-imposed limitations then it will become clear whether or not there are also physical limitations and misalignments as well. Hint: the physical understanding is much easier than the mental/emotional one.

When I was a kid my mom would occasionally refer to me as a Reverend, because I had the need to speak so passionately about just about everything. Little did she know that some day I would build a business upon sharing the wisdom that I am so passionate about. So here you go, here are some bits and bobs of thoughts strung together for your enjoyment.
