We’re all searching for a natural sense of freedom, right? Maybe you call it inner peace or happiness.
It’s a sense of being deeply connected to yourself, others and life. It’s a sense of being free being yourself. Being accepted, loved and feeling that you belong, just as you are.
It’s having confidence to enjoy the process of experiencing, exploring and expressing who you are, what you love and what you are here for as you journey through life.
In this video Mironel de Wilde and I chat about what holds us back and keeps us disconnected, and 4 steps to reconnecting to this natural state of freedom. These have emerged from personal experiences and what has worked so powerfully in our own lives as we choose again and again our unique paths to personal freedom.
Freedom comes when you are willing and daring enough to meet yourself fully, to embody and to authentically express all that you are.
When you do there is a sense of aliveness, charisma and depth to your presence, and life and relationships become incredibly enjoyable.
SO WHAT HOLDS YOU BACK FROM BEING FREE?
Is it staying busy and distracted by everything outside of you? Is it trying to be like others or some ideal?
Is it fear of what you might encounter within yourself and that you would not like or know how to deal with it?
Or are you afraid to be unloveable, to be judged, rejected or abandoned if you share vulnerably all that you are?
Is it easier and more confortable to stay disconnected from yourself at some level?
WARNING! THERE IS A BIG COST TO STAYING DISCONNECTED!
Staying disconnected from your deepest, most authentic self, means that it’s impossible to experience the fullness of your being, the fullness of life and relationships. It keeps you locked out of living your unique purpose.
If that doesn’t sound like what you want, then we feel there are 4 key steps to reconnecting and experiencing your true natural state of freedom.
4 STEPS TO FREEDOM
Bear in mind that every one of these can be a profound journey of self-exploration and self-revealing, and they can take time to really go deep. We often need support and guidance in this process. All healing and awakening has its right time and cannot be forced.
Relax, slow down, and rest. Connect to your body. Create space to let go, release tension and stress, and to be still.
Feel all that is there to be felt. This is often the stage we want to avoid, as it can be uncomfortable. It’s about listening deeply within to feel your physical body, emotions and energy, and to become aware of the ‘crazy’ thinking mind.
ADOPT RADICAL SELF-COMPASSION
Adopt radical self-compassion to help you move through the discomfort and confusion, to release conditioning, limiting beliefs and outside influences, and to embrace your full range of emotions and the intensity of being human.
ACCESS YOUR OWN AUTHENTIC TRUTH
Access your own authentic truth. Once life-force energy is flowing freely in you again you start to feel empowered to express yourself, experience more life in your body, make inspired choices (from within), and engage with others in a more real, compassionate and authentic way.
AUTHENTICITY BECOMES CONTAGIOUS!
When you meet others authentically from who you are, you are supporting them to be themselves, and authenticity becomes contagious!!
We then start to live in a world where we enjoy and recognise the value and beauty of our uniqueness. We start loving each other and supporting each other to be great.
Now that is the world I want to live in!
