Freedom is a matter of choice. It means you get to choose: how you take care of your body; what you create with your mind; the relationships you put your heart into; and the way you live your life. Inspired action, combined with choice, honors freedom.
“Life without liberty is like a body without a spirit.” Kahlil Gibran
The difference between a life of freedom and a life of bondage is a matter of choosing love over fear. Fear-based choices are made from a frightened ego while love-centered choices come from a courageous soul. Choose love as a way to live with integrity.
The most loving choice you can make for your body is to give it what it needs to be healthy. Get back to basics by walking in nature, growing your own food, getting vitamin D from the sun, and soaking in a hot springs to free your body of stress.
Thoughts that come from love create a life of freedom. Start your day by setting an intention to experience...
When you were very young you already knew the meaning of life. You were born with this knowledge and over time you may have forgotten. One way to help you remember who you really are and why you're here, is contemplation.
“Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.”
~ Viktor E. Frankl
Contemplation is not the same as overthinking. Contemplative thinking has a meditative quality with a purpose. It usually begins with a deep question i.e.: What is the meaning of life? As you listen for the answer and observe your thoughts, simply allow your awareness to rise above your ego's mental chatter so that you can hear the calming voice of your soul.
Contemplation combined with journaling will help you capture your soul's guidance through the written word. You can write your question and simply allow whatever comes through to be transferred to the page. This will help you get clear, and you may be...
There is an edge between the ordinary fear-based world and the extraordinary love-centered world. When you're on the edge considering the call to adventure you can either answer the call or refuse it. The choice is yours.
“There is perhaps nothing worse than reaching the top of the ladder and discovering that you’re on the wrong wall.” ~ Joseph Campbell
Your ego may refuse the call to adventure because the path appears too difficult and the final destination seems unreachable. If you've always played it safe or done what was expected of you, your calling will require an essential shift in consciousness from fear to love. Trust your soul to guide you on the path of love to fulfill your destiny.
It's helpful to know that refusing the call is a stage of the hero's journey that leads to meeting a mentor. If you were heading out into unknown territory to embark on a great adventure and you knew nothing about where you were going, you might...
Life is a gift. What you choose to do with this gift is how you show your appreciation. Being on a path of love leads to creating a beautiful life where you naturally make a positive difference wherever you go.
Declare “I Am Making a Difference” as you reflect on these words from Nelson Mandela: “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make a difference.”
When you’re on a path of love, the future is full of possibilities. Imagine your future self as a strong tree in the distance, deeply rooted into the earth for support. The trunk is your core that is aligned with your higher purpose. Its limbs are your arms that help you reach out and make a difference in the world. Leaves grow abundantly as offerings. Birds land on your branches and represent your dreams coming into form, then taking flight. Allow yourself to be pulled forward by this vision.
You can make a difference in your life by loving...
