Happy Fourth of July.
Today is the day of freedom. The day we reflect on our rights, happiness and freedom as a country. America is not a perfect country but there has been no better time in human history than the present.
Freedom is a bell that rings daily, a bell that we all want to ring.
We all seek freedom. Financial freedom. Freedom from our jobs. Freedom from the system.
Most people will never find freedom because they are solely focused on the material and earth-plane world. They believe money will set them free. They believe a relationship will make them happy. They believe a car will make them look cool.
Many of these "things" are compensation tools for something that is lacking inside.
What most people "need" is to set their soul free. This doesn't mean through self-employment or globe-trekking, but to walk the path of growth for their mind, body and soul.
“The great efforts to move our lives forward always come down to a new moment when we interrupt our fear and activate our freedom by choosing how to feel, interpret, and direct our lives.” – Brendon Burchard,
There are two types of wolves that exist in life and in our mind. A white wolf (being of the light) and a black wolf (darkness). Most people torture themselves with dark wolves and invite them in carelessly into our lives, and repeat the same behavioral loop patterns. The lower mind focuses on these instant pleasures, which in turn keeps us locked in from the freedom we seek.
Most people need to break free from the constraints that agonize their soul.
The soul yearns freedom from behavioral loops, bad habits and limiting self beliefs.
“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.” – Melody Beatti
It takes strength and courage to walk away from the things that no longer serve you, but nourish your higher mind, the higher self that seeks more in life.
Stop letting people walk all over of you.
Stop saying yes to everything when you want to say no.
Stop doing things that make you feel empty inside.
When you remove the clutter and dirt from your life you purify the soul. It's like cleaning a garage.
So how do you remove the clutter? Listen to your intuition and seek help. Counseling, yoga, mediation, vacation, eating healthier - whatever is driving you to a better life, seek that out. You need to choose tools that will help you deprogram your mind.
Humans are biologically programmed to focus on the negative. It's how we've evolved for our species to survive. At some point in your life you have to draw the line in the sand and take a stand for what you want in your life. Something healthier. Something more inspirational. Something just better.
Unless it's a loved one, stop worrying about other people and begin to take care of yourself. The more you focus on your soul development the more you break free from the constraints on society. The higher you vibrate and trust in God, things in life will manifest - we just don't know when, where or why. The divine has no timeline.
“You will never be free until you free yourself from the prison of your own false thoughts.” – Philip Arnold
What do you think? How can you set your soul free?
