Freedom From, and Freedom To
I’m talking about freedom again this week, but this time, the freedom in your personal life. Freedom from, and freedom to.
Sometimes, we spend so much energy thinking about the things we want to be free of: the beliefs, the behaviors, the limiting and stuck areas, that we forget to also focus on freedom to. If you only focus on freedom from, your subconscious will begin to look for more and more things to be free of, keeping you in an endless loop. I’m not saying don’t be aware of those things, because we do need to acknowledge and heal what keeps us limited and not free in our lives, but we need to balance it with freedom to.
We might resist the “to” part because, who are we without all those issues we worked so hard to clear? Maybe you had defined yourself by your limitations; it’s how you see and experience yourself in the world. If you were always the person who struggled with X, then when you are free from that, what new possibilities have opened to you? You need to create a new definition of self. That can be scary because it’s undefined and unknown. Can you allow yourself to be more then your blockages? Can you allow in more happiness and joy? That is a threat to your negative ego, so maybe it feels safer to always be fighting the blockages versus owning your light.
Think about the freedom to. When you are free from that fear/pain/struggle/behavior etc., what do you get to do? When you no longer have those limitations, what light can enter your reality? Maybe it’s the freedom to express more joy, to explore your dreams, to follow your creative urges- can you give yourself some of that right now? Can you make the freedom to more powerful then the freedom from?
Give yourself the “to” part now. Don’t wait. Waiting for fulfillment is an illusion of the negative ego. You will always be waiting if it’s out there somewhere. Give yourself permission to enjoy the very things now that you are wanting in the future.
Try giving more attention and weight to the freedom to and see how it lifts you out of the endless cycle of clearing and healing the old. Your future is now.
