Abstract: Wondering about our ability to stay present in turbulent times. Coming to realize that we are shaping our lives by the way we think, feel and behave. Freedom on the inside out as the experience of knowing that what is happening on our inside is shaping the experience we are having on our outside. Tips on how to how to experience freedom from the inside out.
In turbulent times we ask ourselves if we can stay present, make good choices and feel free as things are breaking down? We sometimes feel angry, scared, stressed and powerless in the midst of it all. We understand the concept of breakdown/breakthrough yet sometimes find it challenging to stay fully present through the ups and downs of the breakdown. We dream about freedom, talk about it, have fleeting moments of it and are not sure how to make it a sustainable experience. We ask ourselves is it even possible to be free amidst the turbulence?
At the same time science is proving the oneness of us all, that we are not separate from anyone, anything or our source. There is the growing awareness that what we experience on our inside is affecting everything we experience on the outside. We are coming to realize that we are shaping our lives by how we think, feel and behave. We are also learning that the insights, resolutions and answers we want are available to us when we stay connected to ourselves and our source. What if we knew that what we are cultivating on the inside is what we are realizing on our outside? What if knew that freedom is not dependent on anyone or anything outside of ourselves?
Freedom on the inside out is an experience of knowing that what is happening on our inside is shaping the experiences we have on the outside. A powerful question is what is the nature of experiencing freedom from our inside out?
An example of a fun and easy process for cultivating freedom from our inside out is:
Gathering up some pillows. Designate each pillow as a specific aspect of ourselves. One pillow for the aspect of ourselves that guides ourselves. The other pillows for our emotions, hearts and bodies. Begin a dialog with each aspect. We may find that our emotions are angry about how we often avoid, deny and control them. They may want to scream, cry and hit the pillow about how they have felt abandoned, imprisoned, abused and denied by us. We respond and tell them our side of the story, why we did what we did. We interact, feel and express. We move, express, apologize and let our emotions know thet changes we will make. Let each of our other aspects interact and express in a similar way. As spirits we are empowering ourselves to see the relationship and environment we have been creating within ourselves. With clarity we can guide all the aspects of ourselves in a way that creates safety, unconditional love and empowerment from our inside out.
More of what it takes to feel freedom from our inside out is…
Freedom from the inside out is NOT about looking for a way out or trying to fix ourselves. It is an undoing while engaging in empowering ways of living our lives. It is allowing any holding back to dissolve, resolve and evolve. It is not about needing to be happy or in a state of equanimity all the time. It is about knowing that we can always choose to make a shift.
Freedom from the inside out IS about knowing that the environment and relationships we cultivate on our inside are what is being realized on our outside.
Soon we realize that the more responsibility we take the more freedom is available to us. Soon we recognize that everything appearing in our lives is happening in perfect timing. We begin to see ourselves in new and expanded ways and feel empowered to have beneficial influence wherever we go. We recognize that we are being a catalyst for the changes we want to see in our world. It is the joy of knowing that our source wants the very best for us as our lives unravel in fun and loving ways. Once we get the hang of how this is works it propels us to move forward and never go back!
