It's that time of year when we blow sh*t up in celebration of our collective-mutually-agreed-upon-but-not-always-put-into-practice-freedoms. I don't want to be Debbie Downer here, but do any of us really know what freedom feels like?!? Seems it's becoming harder & harder to experience these days.
But I'm not willing to give up.
My challenge to you this coming Independence Day is to carve out some time to consider how you feel free. In other words, how does freedom... or how do you want freedom... to show up in your life?
As an Aquarius, this question / intention has plagued me most of my life. I've felt a near constant push / pull between stability & freedom... being accepted & being unique... belonging to a group & individuating.
It's only been within the last year or so that I've finally figured out what freedom truly means to me.
It means feeling aligned. Period. Mic drop.
Now if that sounds super simplistic & easy, I'm gonna need you to read that sentence again & then ask yourself what it feels like to feel aligned. That's the tough part.
See, I think when we start considering what freedom means, it's so easy to get caught up in the word freedom that we can't actually find our way to the feel of it.
Too often, we think of freedom as something that is given to us... something granted by an external party.
When in actuality, I believe that freedom is something inherit to our being... something we grant ourselves. Something we're born with. Something we feel.
So, this 4th of July consider your inherit freedoms... maybe even write them down. Focus on the feeling of being free.
Here are a few of mine to get you started:
Freedom to love & be loved
Freedom to express myself
Freedom to be heard
Freedom to be seen
Freedom to feel the full spectrum of my emotions
Freedom to make mistakes & learn
Freedom to be wildly successful
Freedom to define what success feels like
Freedom to heal & grow
Freedom to accept myself & others
Freedom to be surprised & curious
Freedom to be healthy, wealthy & wise
Freedom to treat others as I want to be treated
If you're not sure how to feel freedom, it might be time to lay down & breathe... ideally with me.

The only thing holding you back from living the life you want is YOU. #sorrynotsorry
