Freedom goes by many names. Awakening. Enlightenment. Self-reliance. Sovereignty. Freedom is the ability to have what you choose to have as you choose to have it.
How do you activate this natural ability? By tapping into your true nature as an effective manifestor. And by releasing all thoughts and feelings within you that are in the way of you using your Natural Creative Power.
Freedom Ringing in My Ears!
Every day since I first met my spiritual teachers, I hear their sage advice ringing in my ears:
“Your natural state is one of happiness, health and abundance!”
“You must be free to DO anything you want. You must be free to BE anything you want.”
“How long does it take to become what we have always been?” “How long does it take to be what we have never not been?”
Boy, it all sounds great! Pie in the sky, unrealistic, unachievable … but real cool sounding!
My teachers’ views did feel attractive to me. But, at the time, I had only a vague concept of what they were suggesting. Yet I did take in the spirit and energy of the wisdom they were sharing. I know now that being in their presence, I was absorbing their vibration of Living Free.
My wise friends spoke to me about being “sovereign.” They all implored me to “never work for money.” As one teacher, Michio Kushi, expresses it: “Never do anything you don’t want to do to obtain money. If you work for money, you are no better than a slave!”
They all emphasize the joy of being an independent individual. They teach that everyone is equally capable of being free, intuitive and creative.
Truth Becomes My Reality
My teachers’ words had a strong and penetrating effect on me because I knew in my heart their words spoke of a possible reality. Yet I didn’t have a clue how to live this truth in my life. At the time, I couldn’t imagine how a person could have money without working at a job, or be in a loving relationship without feeling dependant on that person.
Since then, I’ve learned to attract the financial support of the universe by aligning my professional path with my soul passion and purpose. And I’ve found the personal connection to Spirit that allows me to love other people freely without co-dependent ties.
“Freedom Feng-Shui” is my name for the art of consciously guiding the free flow of energy and events in your life.
Your natural state of personal freedom is attainable. With a deep willingness and ample creativity, you too can fly the wide open skies of sovereignty.
When you Live Free, you:
1. Receive from life fully.
You make a radical break with the past to look at yourself and your world with fresh eyes. You drop self-limiting definitions to uncover the unique talents hidden behind your old self-image. You let go of being a victim of fate, destiny, karma, social conditioning or even your own life plan. No matter what decisions or personal laws you’ve committed to in the past, you decide to re-draw your life blueprint in the present. You give up old routines and habits of thinking, perceiving and responding to life that no longer serve you. When you’re free to choose intuitively how to live your life, prosperity flows automatically with no effort or doingness. You open the door to more magic, meaning and money in your world.
2. Give to life fully.
You can’t give to others what you don’t possess. As you open to receiving abundance, wisdom, power and real love, you’re then able to share these treasures with the world. You re-seed your world with a renewed sense of peace, well-being and wholeness.
3. Enjoy life fully.
When you’re released of social programming, you’re able to focus on what you can control in life—your vision, attitude and approach. Set free emotionally, you’re free to use the magic of humor, laughter, play and spontaneity in your daily interactions with people. You’re able to attract increased vitality, originality—and fun!
4. Respond to life fully.
To stay emancipated you must become more capable of handling life’s constant fluctuations and changes. The current social environment of accelerating evolution is not a temporary aberration. We aren’t going to return to a sane, stable world any time soon. It’s smart to accept that change is natural and normal, and will play a significant role in your life for some time to come. As indigenous peoples put it, we must free ourselves to be “Change Masters.” Change Masters not only welcome, invite and celebrate the flux of ever-evolving life, but also consciously drive and direct these rhythms. Free of the tribal “laws,” you learn to adapt the world to you, rather than you adapting to the world. With emotional and social freedom, you can steer change to your advantage. You can accurately predict, manage and even enjoy the gyrations of this wacko world.
5. Heal your life fully.
When you liberate yourself from psychological restraints, you can assume command of the unlimited natural vital flow within yourself. You then get enough personal power to fund your own dream and have plenty of energy left over for family, friends—and fun! You realize that the body/mind/spirit is designed to heal itself and feel good. You allow the Inner Healer to work its magic to align and purify your being. You’re free to unite with the Vital Force Field of the universe in order to bring harmony and balance into all aspects of your world. Sickness, accidents and crises become a thing of the past.
6. Create in life fully.
As you break free of the traditions of mass consciousness, you can transform out-dated practices and paradigms. You awaken to fresh choices, options and solutions you never saw before. You crack the molds inherited from your parents. You’re able to self-facilitate your own personal evolution. You open the door to find the easiest, most practical, and doable way to deal with any situation.
7. Express your life fully.
With emotional freedom, you can create your life as a joyous, spontaneous, fresh adventure of authentic self-expression. You discover who you really are—instead of living who you think you are. You find out what you’re really here to experience, explore and embrace this lifetime—rather than follow the path your family or society has planned for you. You decide to express your true passion and discover how to get paid well doing it!
