How does that make you feel?
I asked this question on my facebook page on Monday and the answers got me thinking about the journey to freedom in new inspired ways.
When I started blogging back in 2006 on the Abundance Highway: The tagline was Journey to Freedom. I feel like I have come the full circle and as T S Eliot said:
What I now understand at a deep level is that change is just part of the journey to freedom. When we fully love ourselves, we are embracing the changes we have made, the risks we have taken, the courage we have shown.
All of this allows us to move towards our own perfect journey to freedom.
We each do this in our own way.
In a way that resonates for each one of us and speaks to us from our hearts.
What follows are the many and varied responses to the question I asked that have inspired me and I trust you will maybe see your journey reflected on one or more of these beautiful women, my friends comments.
My journey is far from perfect but along the way to living life on my terms, I’ve learned to set healthy boundaries, say yes when I mean yes and no when I mean no, and I’ve learned to stop asking permission.when I stopped asking permission it felt weird at first because I was a permission and approval seeker. The fear of disapproval held me back in so many ways. Not any more! When I stopped asking permission (or thinking I needed permission from SOMEONE to do X), my whole life opened up. Talk about freedom!
Debra Reble‘s words inspired the title of the post, they spoke right to my heart
It’s to open my heart, sustain my vibration as love and align every thought feeling and choice with my soul’s journey. True freedom is in the journey!
Zeenat Merchant Zyal inspires with her honesty:
For me freedom is saying “*&*#& it” to what others expect of me and living life MY way. I’m already in that zone….just a little bit more and I will be completely free
Carol Hess delighted me and brought in a common theme of the journey being within:
Wow! What great questions! My perfect journey to freedom looks like listening to the wise woman within and recognizing my own divinity. It makes me feel cherished, awestruck, inspired, free, and filled with ease.
Lore Raymond reflect on what Peggy and Zeenat answered, so important to know, like , love and trust you: What you think about me is none of my business 🙂
Freedom right now looks like ignoring what the naysayers speak about what I can and can’t do. I just keep traveling my path in sacred service. it’s my life–and not theirs.
Natasha Botkin reminds us to live our way- a point that came through for many.
Being in love with live and living this in my own manner with the freedom to do so with a joyful, wonderful feeling
Barb Parcells shares that aspect of freedom that comes when from the simple things:
Freedom for me right now looks like living in my own home and being able to take off on my own whenever the feeling hits me.
Kelley Grimes mentions the importance of responding, a gift:
Freedom is creating loving space around myself to respond and not react. I am deeply grateful to my self-nurturing practices of mindfulness and meditation that support my ability to hold that loving space for myself and others.
Debra Oakland express for us the wonderful feeling that embracing love brings.
Being myself without restrictions, loving everything from a place of divine love and light. Embracing love, love, love everywhere I AM. It feels wondrous!
Patricia Raga-Young adds in the important of gratitude, i think that propels us faster on out journey t freedom
Continue living an authentic life, honoring my truth and mission, serving others, being grateful and embracing love for where I am now.
Andrea Patten mentions that this is an ongoing proces, so true
For me it means paying attention to the things that make be feel “un-free” and taking steps to put a stop to them. It’s ongoing, for sure.
